Bathtub sex, like pool sex or beach sex, is one of those adventures that too often seems so much hotter in theory than in reality. In fantasy bathtub sex, you have a luxurious, jet-laden tub that’s deep enough to soak in, has great traction where you want it, and is big enough for whatever adventure you decide to chase. In reality, if you’re lucky enough to have a bathtub it’s likely cramped, tepid, and slippery in all the wrong ways. But that doesn’t mean you’re destined for equally tepid bathtub sex. Check out the below tips to make your bathtub sex hotter than ever.
Set The Scene Before You Dive In
Good bathtub sex starts with a sparkling clean bathtub. Put away all products that are sitting out near the tub. Deep clean your bathtub; the ceiling, walls, and floor around it; and the drain. Then clean the rest of the bathroom, too. Launder the bathmat and refresh the other linens, leaving out extras for the event itself in case your enthusiasm leads to splashing water everywhere.
Next, consider the lighting. Candles and baths are a cliché for a reason: many bathrooms are cursed with a choice between harsh overhead lighting or no lighting at all, but a few flickering candles can cast a gentle glow. If you’re tight on space and balancing candles on curved porcelain surfaces, put some museum putty under them to keep them from sliding.
Finally, you and anyone bathing with you should shower and wash thoroughly before you draw the bath. Baths are for pleasure, not for cleaning.
Things to Consider Before Bathtub Sex
Too little leverage and too much accidental sliding around are part of what make bath sex more complicated. Find it challenging to hold yourself up in a tub that’s at an angle? Forget slimy tub mats; simply fold a towel you don’t mind getting, and sit or stand on it under the water. This can help you avoid slipping.
Always Lube Up!
Lube is also crucial since the bathwater will wash away any natural lubrication. If you’re planning to have sex using just body parts like hands or a penis, silicone lube will stay in place no matter how wet you get and is a better choice than oil-based lube, which is incompatible with condoms or gloves. If you don't have silicone based lube you can always stick to water-based lube instead. Stock up in advance, use a generous amount lube, and be careful getting out of the tub afterwards.
Just Say No To Bath Bombs
Glitter bath bombs seem like a sexy, mood-setting idea, but save those for times you aren’t having bath sex. (Or use them, splash around, and then towel off and head somewhere dry for the main event.) Bath bombs in general can disrupt the vagina’s pH balance, according to Michael Cackovic, an ob/gyn quoted in SELF. And bath bombs with glitter, seaweed, or other add-ins can introduce particles to the vagina as well, especially during sex, which can lead to yeast infections or other problems. Thinking a quick douche will prevent the problem? Think again: douching can also introduce bacteria, and generally disrupts the vagina’s environment. Avoid bath bombs and fragrant essential oils in the first place instead.
Incorporate Waterproof Sex Toys
Waterproof sex toys can take bathtub sex to the next level, whether alone or with a partner. Using sex toys during bathtub sex can be good as water adds an element of sensory pleasure, enhancing overall sensation. Waterproof toys are safe to use and can stimulate erogenous zones that may be more sensitive in the water. Sex toys like clit sucking vibrators can also spice up intimacy, encourage experimentation, and intensify pleasure. However, it's essential to ensure the toys are suitable for underwater use and prioritize communication with your partner to ensure a pleasurable and safe experience.
Best Positions for Bathtub Sex
Engaging in sexual activities in a bathtub can be an enjoyable and intimate experience for some couples, but it's essential to prioritize safety and comfort to avoid any accidents or injuries. Check out are some suggested positions for bathtub sex:
- Seated position: One partner sits in the bathtub, legs extended or bent, while the other partner straddles them facing forward or backward. This position allows for intimate eye contact and easy access to each other's bodies.
- Lying down position: Both partners can lie down in the tub, side by side or with one on top of the other. This position works well for relaxing and enjoying sensual touching and caressing.
- Standing Position: If the bathtub is spacious enough, one partner can stand while the other partner wraps their legs around their waist. This position requires some strength and balance, so be cautious.
- Kneeling Position: One partner kneels in the bathtub while the other sits on their lap, facing them or facing away. This position allows for deep penetration and can be quite intimate.
- Sitting on the Edge: One partner sits on the edge of the bathtub while the other partner stands in front of them. This position can be more comfortable for the partner sitting down, and it allows for various angles of penetration.
