7 tips for making love in the water (without risk)

While making love in a jacuzzi or in the sea during a full moon is a common fantasy, the act itself may be risky if you don't go about it the right way. It's important to take a few precautions so that your romantic evening doesn't turn into a nightmare.

Sex in the shower, in the sea, in the swimming pool... be careful!

Rinse off!

One of the biggest inconveniences of having sex in a body of water is that the water will inevitably enter the female partner's vagina. The only problem with this is if the water isn't pure enough. Salt from seawater or chlorine from a swimming pool may strip your natural lubrication and irritate the vagina. Even worse, bacteria and microbes may cause nasty infections. Beware of fungus, vaginosis or vaginitis! To avoid any discomfort after making love in water, you should rinse yourself thoroughly with clear water. But don't panic, if you only have sex in water once in a blue moon, the vaginal flora should do its thing by effectively combat undesirable bacteria.

Safety first

A romp in the shower before going to work is a brillant way to start your day. But sex in the shower requires firm footing so that you don't slip and hurt yourself (badly) when you fall. It also requires a bit of ingenuity to find a position that is comfortable enough for both partners to have fun (without an inopportune cramp!). The ideal position is as follows: one partner should penetrate the other from behind, while both stand on a non-slip mat in the shower. Nothing's stopping you from starting foreplay in the water and then ending up on the bathroom floor or in your bed!

Stay on solid ground

While it may not be an issue in the shower or jacuzzi, it is important to avoid getting in over your head in large bodies of water. In the sea or pool, make sure you stay in the shallows. Also, remember to hold on to something to avoid getting a mouthful, or even drowning! Some fantasies just aren't worth it. And if you're looking to make love in an extraordinary location, there are many other places that are much less risky!

Don't forget a condom

Making love in water will not protect you against STDs and STIs. Wearing a condom is a no-brainer. Remember to put it on before entering the water, because it will be much trickier after. Remember to stay on your guard because condoms are much more fragile in water, and will have a greater risk of breaking.

Go deep

When making love in water, a man's penis  may get stuck in his partner's orifices due to suction. To avoid this kind of discomfort, you should immerse yourself completely in the water to prevent air from entering the woman's vagina. Although these cases are rare, the risk does exist. While this sort of situation is not dangerous, it may be a bit embarrassing!

Remember to lubricate

While having sex in water, you will quickly notice that penetration feels "drier", due to water stripping your body's natural lube. To improve the glide, remember to use a lube. But not just any lube! A water-based lubricant will wash away immediately, so opt for a waterproof silicone-based lubricant. Silicone formulas are 5 times longer lasting on average. On the other hand, silicone lubes are not compatible with silicone sex toys.

Stay discreet

While what you do in the bedroom is your business, making love out in public is against the law. So keep a low profile to avoid attracting attention, as you could be fined or even arrested for your wet and wild evening outdoors.
