How to have sex in the shower
Turn your bathroom into a place of pure pleasure by making love in the shower. You'll reignite the flame in your relationship and strengthen your intimate bond.

Hot water relaxes the body and increases your sensations during sex. Making love in the shower will breathe new life into your relationship and introduce you to the joys of steamy sensuality. However, there are a few precautions you should take during your wet and wild adventure. Read on to discover all of our best tips for enjoying some aquatic lovemaking!

Adjust the water temperature

Remember to set the temperature of the water to suit both you and your partner. The water shouldn’t be too cold (as this will prevent you from enjoying your experience), nor too hot (as you risk burning yourself). Agree with your partner on the ideal temperature for each of you.

To avoid wasting water, turn off the tap when you don't need it. Consider installing a water-saving showerhead to reduce your consumption.

Before you get out of the shower, place some towels on a radiator. Wrapping yourselves in warm towels afterward will keep the pleasure alive after your session is over.

Use a silicone-based lube

Penetration can sometimes become uncomfortable in the shower, so using a generous amount of lube is key. Water-based formulas tend to dissolve too quickly in water, so you should opt for a silicone-based lube instead.

The texture of a silicone-based lubricant is thick and slippery to give you a perfect glide during your watersports. Make sure you spread it evenly without using too much.

In the shower, silicone-based lube can make surfaces extremely slippery. Place a non-slip mat on the shower floor and move carefully. Also be careful not to apply lube to surfaces you are likely to lean on (taps, handles, walls, etc.), as the glide may make you lose your balance.

Keep in mind that silicone lubes are generally compatible with latex condoms, but not with certain silicone sex toys. To avoid damaging your toys, check before you start your session that your toys and lubes are compatible with each other.

Use 100% waterproof sex toys

Using sex toys in the shower can be incredibly fun, but you’ll first need to make sure they are completely waterproof. We advise you to read the user’s manual carefully.

If you have any doubts, feel free to contact the LOVE Team. We’ll be happy to give you all the information you need to get the most out of our toys.

Remember, many sex toys have electronic components, which may not be compatible with a wet and soapy environment. Dildos, anal plugs and manual prostate massagers can all be used safely in the shower or bath. You just need to make sure that these toys are made from non-porous materials (such as silicone, glass or stainless steel).

Use condoms

Remember to use a condom when having sex in the shower to protect yourself from STDs and to prevent unwanted pregnancy.

Water from the shower can make it more difficult to put on a condom. Make sure your hands and penis are completely dry. Open the packaging, roll the condom over your erect penis and apply a silicone-based lube.

Avoid acrobatic positions

To avoid any risk of falling or having an accident on a slippery floor, forget trying out overly acrobatic positions. Choose a position that favours stability!

The LOVE Team recommends sex from behind: each partner should keep their feet firmly on the floor, while the partner being penetrated leans against the shower wall. A non-slip mat will give you even more balance.

If you prefer a face-to-face position, the partner being penetrated can rest their leg on the edge of the bath to keep stable.

Adapt your movements to the size of your shower. Be creative, but remain cautious! You'll be able to turn your splish-splash session into an unforgettable memory.

Penetration isn’t everything!

The shower is the perfect place to experiment with new sexual acts. There are a thousand ways to explore each other's bodies and increase your intimacy. Discovering new kinds of pleasure will help you increase your sexual compatibility.

Enjoy a languorous session of oral sex: cunnilingus, fellatio, or anulingus all feel amazing in the shower. Explore your partner’s body with your tongue to discover new erogenous zones!

Mutual masturbation is also super exciting in the shower. Enjoying each other’s bodies in the shower will deepen your bond and really spice things up!
