A steamy hot tub after a long day sounds super intimate and exciting. And coupled with some hot sex in water, it sounds like a scene right out of a movie. Well, let’s pause there because what you see on the screen might look steamier than reality. While those scenes have multiple retakes to make them look appealing, retakes with your partner are hardly exciting. So, before you turn on the shower, you might want to know some facts, tips, and tricks. These will let you have a fun time without getting an STI, UTI, or an unplanned pregnancy.
Facts about sex in water:
Let’s start by educating ourselves before diving into all the steaminess. Because you need to be prepared for a tricky and slippery situation like this one.
1. Hot water does not kill sperm
Contrary to the popular belief that hot water kills sperm, it actually doesn’t. It’s sperm, not germs. But, since the sperm can’t live outside the body for long, they do eventually die. This simply means that if your partner ejaculates inside you, inside a hot tub, the sperm will be swimming around inside you. But if they ejaculate in water, the sperm won’t survive for long and will die eventually.
2. You can still get STIs, UTIs, or pregnant underwater
Since things are a little slippery in a shower or a hot tub, one should exercise proper caution. Because the possibility of catching sexually transmitted infections, urinary tract infections, or getting pregnant isn’t decreased underwater. Use protection as you would in bed or any other place.
3. Condoms can work quite well depending on the type of water
Even though it’s not an easy business to keep the condom from slipping off, they do a fairly decent job. But in the case of hot water, you might want to keep some extra handy as it may hamper the durability of a condom. Therefore, it is recommended to wear your protection before entering the water because putting it on inside the water could be a nightmare. You can also internal condoms since they may work better in this scenario.
4. An extra layer of lubricant is always useful, even underwater
If you thought you could skip lubricants inside water, think again. Water does not provide enough lubrication for the task at hand. Friction increases underwater which might cause the condom to break and make things not-so-smooth. So, get an extra layer of lubrication to keep things smooth and sexy.
5. NGL, there is a high possibility of getting an injury, so be careful
Hate to burst your bubble, but sex in a shower, in a pool, or hot tub isn’t really the safest. In many cases, when you are using lube, it can get on the floor and make the whole situation extra slippery. And there can also be chances of tear, irritation, or abrasion in the vagina due to water if you’re not careful. So, getting some mats would be a nice idea to make things easier. Or even better, you can play around and have a steamy foreplay session in the water and take things back to bed to finish off.
Tips and tricks:
Sex in water can be tricky. So, follow these easy tricks and tips to make the most of your intimate time. A little steamy time in water can actually be fun and help amp up the heat.
1. Use a double showerhead so you don’t run cold
Let’s be honest, having sex is great, but having a continuous stream of hot water makes it even better. So, unless you want to dull the fun and have your partner shiver in cold and act cranky, get a double showerhead. That way, you both can stay warm and keep things going.
2. Use a silicone-based lubricant to keep things smooth
While a traditional lubricant does the job well on dry land, you will require something extra in the wetlands. So, get some silicone-based lubricant as it will stay intact underwater and make things more pleasurable. But be careful, because you don’t want the lube to end up on the floor, followed by you.
3. A dash of essential oils in the bathtub makes all the difference
Even if you are just in the mood to relax and spend some time with your babe in the hot tub, this trick does wonders. Adding a dash of essential oils makes the experience more pleasurable and heavenly. So, get whatever you have and make your intimate quality time even better.
4. Make use of the jet streams and removable shower head
Whether it is a hot tub, shower, or jacuzzi, you can always make it more pleasurable. Using jet streams in hot tubs, or a removable shower head in the right places can increase the pleasure significantly. You can take turns pleasuring your partner, or give them a little demonstration of how it is done on your own self. This will only make things steamier and get you closer to the big O.
5. Don’t forget to hydrate after all the action
Since it will be more of an effort to do things underwater, and sex in water is no less than intense cardio, it is important to hydrate yourself in between or afterwards. Hot water tends to dehydrate you quicker, so keep some water bottles around because you don’t want any fainting action happening. And trust us, it can happen pretty often.
Don’t have anyone to join you? A little action with your own self is good too. So, here are some tips to spice up your alone time.
