7 of the best shower sex tips that’ll help you enjoy getting steamy in the bathroom 0 253

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.

My bitter ex told lies to my friends about my ‘small manhood’ after I dumped her 0 47

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger.

She never complained when we were together, but last week she told the girls in our group that being with me was “like kissing a soggy lettuce leaf” and that she “literally didn’t feel a thing when we were having sex” because I’m so small.

My ex is so bitter about being dumped that she is spreading nasty rumours around our friendship group – saying I’m rubbish in bed and have a small todger

I’m 25 and she’s 24. I think part of it is jealousy.

She knows a couple of the other girls fancy me and I think she’s trying to sabotage any chance I have with them.

Not that I’m even planning anything.

She’s so insecure and has a vicious tongue on her.

I’m tempted to let each of her so-called friends know what she really says about them in private.

Even her best friend gets a nasty critique every time she posts anything on Instagram.

Her top is either too short, or her hair looks like wire, or her laugh is fake . . . it goes on and on.

I don’t regret splitting up with her but this last trick has really infuriated me.

You could maybe reply with: “Let’s just say she never complained when we were together and nor have any of my other exes.”

Your friends will soon see her behaviour for what it is – jealous insecurity.

My partner said he was on a work trip – but he was actually getting married and on his honeymoon 0 30

DEAR DEIDRE: MY partner said he was on a work trip two months ago, but he had actually got married and been on honeymoon.

Our relationship had become a bit predictable, but we still had regular sex and nice days out with our two young sons.

My partner lied about his work trip – he was really on his HONEYMOON

I’m 32 and he’s 37. Our sons are four and two.

When he returned from his “work trip” he blamed me for his cheating, saying I had let myself go and didn’t pay him enough attention.

He then told me he’d “traded up” for a better model. It didn’t stop there.

He said that his wife, who is 27, is absolutely stunning and makes him feel special.

Apparently this woman was a barmaid he’d met on a golf trip and they had been seeing each other for six months.

He told me all this, then marched upstairs and packed his games console and his clothes and drove off out of my life.

The thing is, we always talked about getting married but when we had kids there always seemed something better to spend our money on.

Mutual friends have told me he has moved into a new-build home on the other side of our small town and his wife has plenty of family money.

My sons are really missing him and I don’t even know how I feel.

Sometimes when he comes to visit the boys I beg him to come home.

But other times I’m so angry with him, I refuse to let him in.

Now he is accusing me of stopping him from seeing his children.

DEAR DEIDRE

I caught my husband snogging my sister – how am I meant to trust him again?

DEIDRE SAYS: I’m so sorry your partner ended your relationship in such a cruel way.

This man sounds selfish and immature, and quite frankly the way he has treated you is emotionally abusive.

It won’t feel like it now, but you really are better off without him.

He is behaving like he still lives in your home, by just turning up unannounced.

Tell him firmly that you would encourage a good relationship between him and your sons but he can only collect them with prior arrangement.

Start to put down your boundaries.

I’m sending you my support pack When Parents Fall Out, which you could pass to him to help explain why you need to co-operate for the future wellbeing of your children.
