Room for passion
With its warm and wet environment, the shower calls for exciting lovemaking... but it's often not as easy as it seems in the movies or in our fantasies. Let's face it,
Since not everyone can enjoy a floor-level shower at home, sex under the shower can turn out to be an athletic challenge—a discipline that almost deserves to be shown at the Olympic Games.
All your flexibility and skills are needed to transport you and your better half to cloud nine. Here are the most important tips for successful lovemaking in the shower.
More or less physically intense positions
One thing is for sure: if you have very little space, standing positions are preferable. The best way to stimulate your partner's G-spot is the tried-and-tested doggystyle. When you're facing each other, on the other hand, it's mainly her clitoris that can enjoy the fullest extent of your skills.
For the 'ascent to pleasure,' the woman can also wrap her legs around the man's hips. In any case, don't be afraid to use the wall to help you, so that you don't have to constantly struggle with your balance and can concentrate fully on making love.
If you have a bathtub, it can be more comfortable if one of you sits or lies down and the other takes the riding position. However, you should be careful to change positions regularly so that one of you doesn't get cold while the other enjoys the warm water.
The benefits of sex in the shower
There are several good reasons for making love in the shower. First and foremost, the excitement of a new lovemaking spot. But also steam and the feeling of warm water on the skin caressing every nerve ending on the body.
A nice side effect: the warm temperatures widen your pores and remove impurities and toxins. And you save yourself the usual post-sex shower to clean up. So feel free to use a little soap after you're done. This way you'll leave the shower not only satisfied, but also freshly showered.
By the way, the shower is also a great place for a long foreplay session; caresses or massages with a nice-smelling shower gel will increase your pleasure. Remember, however, that water and especially soap are not lubricants. If you want to make it a little wetter down there, you should use a conventional lubricant.
So if you take care not to slip, only use soap in the intended places and don't spend ages under the shower, your lovemaking session can be a real success.
Of course, there's nothing to stop you from trying out other corners of your bathroom afterwards. How about the sink, for example, or a washing machine in the spin cycle? Everything is allowed!
