How to Have Sensational Shower Sex (That Beats Going Out)
Sex in the bath or shower is a curiosity for many, and a 'would highly recommend it' for others. There's just something about getting down and dirty with a partner while getting clean at the same time.
However, if you've ever lived in shared accommodation then you're aware that access to the bathroom, and a clean one at that, can be limited at best. Don't let your living situation be a limit to your sex life, though!
Previously our student bloggers have covered The Best Responses To Noisy Housemate Sex, and Top Tips for Masturbation in Shared Accommodation; given the echo of the bathroom and the splashing that can come with it, it seems that discreet sex in the bathroom is an impossibility.
But where there is a will(y), there is a way, and by the end of this, you'll know just how to have mind-blowing sex in the bathroom.
Baths and showers are, by nature, quite slippery things. Throw lubricant and another person into the mix and there's a chance you could end up in your local A&E department with some rather embarrassing injuries to explain, if you aren't careful.
Be sure to use a good quality non-slip bath mat, and to clean up any excess lube that's left over to save unsuspecting housemates from similar injuries.
For the more safety-conscious among you, Lovehoney offer foot rests, handles, and even handcuffs with lever-locking suction cups, providing extra security, height, and sensation for fun in the shower.
Plus, they can be very handy for reaching those tricky places when shaving your legs (well, maybe not the handcuffs).
While it's not the most enticing way to prepare your night, it may be worth your while spending some time earlier in the day cleaning your bathroom. The smell of drying socks doesn't exactly add a romantic aura to what should be an exhilarating night - and what better way to reward yourself after a hard day of housework than a nice, relaxing shower with someone special?
I've found that the best time to plan your bath time rendezvous is one when you know your housemates will be out. For example, say they're planning a night out and you're a bit skint, it's a win-win situation!
You don't blow your student loan and you have fun of an entirely different (and let's face it, often better) kind;, there's less of a hangover, you control the tunes, and nobody spills their pint on you.
Bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "early to bed, early to rise", a weekend morning while your housemates are still in bed nursing their hangovers is the perfect time to nab the first shower of the day with your partner.
Sure, getting up early on a weekend may not sound appealing to many, but it comes with the bonus that the shower floor will already be dry and you won't end up slipping on any leftover conditioner they've failed to clean up (again!).
The steady stream of the water will easily cover any noise that vibrating toys or yourselves might make, but if you're a little conscious of this then a playlist of some of your favourite sexy songs will both put you in the mood and easily cover any moans and groans; just be sure to keep the volume as low as you can, as nothing kills the mood quite like a hungover housemate banging on the bathroom door while you're doing the deed.
To make something special of your morning, follow up your steamy shower by going out for breakfast, as not only will you replenish your energy but it makes a great early-in-the-day date.
Picture the scene: candles, wine, bubbles, and your partner in a lovely warm shower. Things are getting a little steamy. Then you realise – oh no! – you’ve left your toys in the bedroom. You now have two options, either save your plans for another day, or do the undignified, dripping-wet dash from the bathroom to your bedroom to retrieve them.
But, fear not, there is a third option. Keep a waterproof toiletries bag somewhere in the bathroom filled with your favourite items to save yourself from the chilly walk of shame.
Better still, invest in a lockable sex toy case to keep your goodies safe from nosey housemates – especially the one who always steals your shampoo and may go in there looking for some.
Grab the Essentials
Silicone lubricant is ideal for play in the bath and shower, as it’s more long-lasting, less sticky, and doesn’t wash away like water-based lube does. Safe for use with both latex and non-latex condoms, the only drawback is that it can’t be used with silicone toys, but there are plenty of plastic and latex toys which are also waterproof.
Bathroom toys are by no means just for kids! Here are some of my personal favourites:
- Lovehoney BASICS Vibrating Waterproof Cock Ring is ideal for couples as it provides added stimulation to both users, as well as helping with longer-lasting sex. And for such a low price, I firmly believe that it is a must-have for every student’s sex toy collection.
- Shots Toys Remote Control 10 Speed Vibrating Love Egg is fully submersible and therefore ideal for use in the bath or shower. The remote control means that you aren’t restricted by a wire and the love egg can be used all over the body for massage and extensive foreplay, especially when you hand the control over to your partner.
- Swoon Shimmy Bullet Vibrator has always been my go-to vibrator. Offering three speeds, even on its highest setting it is virtually silent underwater, which is another bonus if – like mine - the walls of your flat are rather thin.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab your willing volunteer and have that sexy shower experience you've always wanted.
