Sex in the shower is fun. It's hot (sometimes literally), it's intimate, and it provides lots of varied and exciting sensations. And like any kind of fucking, it's better if you know what you're doing. Fuck.com asked resident writer Leo Larkin for the ultimate guide to shower sex; which sex positions work best, what not to do with the soap, and how to keep your balance. 

 

Keep it slippery...

Shower sex is steamy, sweaty and wet, so there's no need for lube, right? Wrong. Sex in the bath or shower can, paradoxically, make lubrication even more necessary. Water can dilute natural lubrication, meaning that the wetter things get, the drier they can actually be. 

But if water isn't a good lubricant, what about soap? Half of the fun of shower sex is feeling slippery boobs slide out of your hands, right? Sure, getting your slippery dick stroked in a shower of warm water is great, but keep it on the outside. Get that soap inside, and you're going to find that it stings like blazes. So put down the soap, don't rely on water, and keep a little silicone-based lube around in case you need it. 
 

...but not too slippery!

Good shower sex can be anything from lazy and intimate to playful and fun to rough and intense. But if you're shooting for that last one, you need to be careful. Flushed, energetic fucking in the shower is sexy as hell; falling in the tub and bruising your tailbone sucks. You need to know how to keep your balance even when you're, er, concentrating on something else. 

One thing you'll need for good shower sex is a textured rubber product. As kinky as that sounds, I'm talking about a non-slip bath mat. It'll help keep your feet on the floor and give you the leverage you need. You should also look for spots where you can brace yourself against multiple points – shower corners are ideal for this. 
 

Have a sense of humour

Shower sex can be a lot of fun, but you have to be able to laugh about it. Water's going to get up someone's nose, the bathroom's going to get splashed, and at some point at least one of you is going to look ridiculous. You're not going to be able to maintain some smooth images, and you have to be OK with that.

Choose your position

Shower sex is going to be different for every couple, so experiment with a few different positions to see what works. For couples with a height difference, there are a few extra challenges. As a result, this list focuses on the best positions for her and him, where that won't get in the way. 
 

Use the shower head

Lucky enough to have a detachable handheld shower head? Put it to use! If the hose is long enough (sorry), you can use it to add extra stimulation to lots of the positions on this list. 
 

From behind, braced

For maximum stability, brace yourself against both walls of a corner while leaning forward. It's the ideal position for getting fucked from behind. Unlike most shower sex positions, you can put some energy into this and still stay safe. The only downside? In most showers, there's only room to do this down the length of the shower. As a result, one partner's going to get all the water. 
 

On your knees

Sex doesn't have to mean penetration, which is good news if you're trying to have standing sex on a slippery floor with someone six inches shorter than you. But showers are a fantastic place for oral; the warmth and massage effect of water all over your body enhances the sensation. If your shower is big enough, try sitting on the edge of the tub, but be careful not to topple backward.
 

Take it lying down

Sometimes, in sex as in life, you have to go low. If you have a shower over a tub – and I don't know how you're screwing in a shower cubicle if you don't – the best approach is to have the taller partner lie down on their back while the shorter rides them. The upper partner can use the sides of the tub for support, making this a convenient position. The surface isn't too comfortable, so it might be easier for the upper partner to squat rather than kneel.
 

The ol' soap job

Actual shower sex can be a logistical challenge, but don't underestimate the appeal of soapy hands on warm, soapy bodies. A perfectly ordinary shower can become a memorable experience with the simple addition of a partner standing behind you and soapily stimulating you. And, of course, the shower is the perfect place for a satisfying titfuck. Just remember: soap belongs on people's outsides. 
 

Treat it as foreplay

Sex in the shower is fun, but don't be afraid to change venue if you want to take your time. Towel off quickly and take it to bed or, if you're classy, the bathroom floor. Away from the spraying water and slippery tiles, you can really take your time and work up a sweat.

And, of course, once you've worked up a sweat, it's time for another shower.

When away from on a trip, request a handicapped shower stall with a benchseat.
