LET’S be real – anyone who’s had sex in the shower knows it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.
It’s less likely to be a hot and steamy encounter and more likely to be an awkward and chilly sex session in a cramped space.

But that doesn’t mean you have to write it off completely, with some clever tips and tricks you can make your hot and heavy bathroom hanky panky just as good as your bedroom session.
Speaking to Women’s Health, clinical psychologist and certified sex therapist Janet Brito said: “Shower sex can be really hot because it has a sense of urgency to it—you’re not going to stay in there for an hour.
“Plus, hot water is relaxing and sensual, and seeing each other naked and wet can be a huge turn-on.”
So if you’re ready to give it a go (or another go), here’s what you need to know first…

Warm up first
Foreplay in the shower can be a struggle with restricted movement so in order to fully enjoy your session, turn up ready for action.
This may mean kicking things off on the bathroom floor or in the bedroom before hopping under the water.
No oil, just lube
Bath oil may be sexy but in a shower sex sesh, it’s also far too slippery.
Instead opt for a silicone-based or natural lube, as water can actually cause more friction between you and your partner.
So make sure you lube up before you hit the showers.
Watch out for your legs
When you get too hot – which can happen you’re in a steamy shower – your muscles can relax and you can pass out.
This isn’t a regular occurrence but you need to be careful and look after your partner to make sure no one gets hurt.
Angle the shower head
It could be tempting to point the shower head at the centre of the action but that’s not the best way to enjoy your sex session.
You’re better off pointing it towards your legs or torso.
That way it’s not going to be soaking your sexy time and causing unwanted friction.
Bring in the bath toys
Why not bring some sex toys to the party? There are plenty of waterproof options to play with.
Having a vibrator on hand also means you don’t need to feel stressed about finding the perfect position and angle, instead you can both be stimulated in other ways.
