When it comes to getting down and dirty in the shower, do you love it or do you hate it? It seems like people either love it or hate it. If you’re like us, you saw the steamy shower scene in "Blue Valentine" between Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams and totally wanted to recreate it. It is Ryan Gosling, right!? But before you try and recreate your own "Blue Valentine", let’s talk about the pros and cons to shower sex first.
Con #1 - Water is *not* Lube
We’ll just get this one out of the way first because it’s a big one. Yes, water is slippery. No, it doesn’t take the place of lube. It can actually wash away a woman’s natural lubrication that is produced when turned on. So if you want to turn up the heat in the shower we recommend purchasing a water proof lube, yes that’s a thing!
Pro #1 - Shower Sex is Perfect for Period Sex
So it’s that time of the month, you are super horny (thanks hormones) and bae is totally in the mood. What do you do? Yes, you can always put down a towel but you’re trying not to ruin those expensive white sheets your Grandma gifted you for your birthday so you jump in the shower! Shower sex is perfect for period sex. It’s kind of speaks for itself. You can get as messy as you want and it will be easy to clean up!
Con #2 - Size *does* Matter
Talking about shower size, of course. If you don’t have a big luxurious two-person shower, that’s ok - and if you do, we're totally jealous, but it does make getting sexy in shower a little more difficult. In small showers, you will have to be careful as you move around and let’s face it, if there isn’t a comfortable shelf or ledge for her to prop her leg up on it’s probably not going to be very fun for either of you.
Pro #2 - Easy Cleanup
If you’ve ever been the partner that is left laying on the bed for what seems like a lifetime while your partner runs to grab a towel, you will especially appreciate this one. We think this one also speaks for itself but it is a big pro that we think it should be included!
Con #3- Someone is Always Cold
This one ties in with not having a two-person shower. Most showers only have enough room for one person to be under the steamy water at once, let alone two. So, one person is probably going to be freezing their booty off at some point. So, you need to constantly change places, which can be awkward AF and very un-sexy.
Pro # 3- Spice Things Up
In a sexual rut? Try taking things to the shower! Missionary is great and all but sometimes you need a change of scenery to spice things up. It won’t be difficult to get turned on when you and your partner are bare naked standing in a confined space. And, trying new things together will boost your sexual self confidence.
No matter if you are team shower sex or team no shower sex, you have to admit there are definitely pros and cons to doing the dirty in the shower!
