Shower Sex: A How-To by Riley McKenna, Stiletto’s resident “sexpert” . . .
I’m not going to lie:
I watch James Bond movies for the eye-candy. And that goes for all the James Bonds. Connery. Brosnan. Craig. Especially Daniel Craig. And his most recent one—Skyfall? Um, who cares about the guns and the gadgets, because did you see that shower scene?
Sex in the shower is like sex on steroids. It’s steamier. Literally. It’s hotter. Literally. It’s wetter. Literally.
But there is one tiny detail that doesn’t exactly come through in that scene between James Bond and his latest Bond girl: the logistics of sex in the shower?
Tricky. Very tricky.
Sure, it’s all hot and bothered until someone slips and bumps their funny bone. It’s all delicious sexy times until you spot that pube in the bar of soap, amiright?
But don’t worry, that’s what Stiletto is here for. To ensure your shower sex is a little more James Bond, and a little less trip to the ER.
Shower Sex: A How To
Doggy-style. Definitely: For starters, it’s just practical. Even if you’re a five foot, ninety pound pixie (I hate you), and your guy is a six foot something bodybuilder (I hate you more), the whole “hoist the woman up and hold her against the wall” move just isn’t smart in the shower. There’s way too much slippage potential. Secondly, being sandwiched between the cool shower wall and his hot wet chest? Exquisite.
Don’t be shy: Yeah, so there are no covers to hide under, and it may not be your best angle for your belly or your hips, and bathroom lighting’s rarely flattering and . . . FORGET ABOUT ALL THAT RIGHT THIS SECOND. Trust us, he’s definitely enjoying the view.
Keep things clean: Nah, we’re not talking about down there, although that’s never a bad idea. We’re talking about the shower/tub. The best shower sex is spontaneous, so the last thing you want to be doing is thinking about the grime in the tub or the soap scum on the tiles. A weekly cleaning will ensure it’s always mostly ready for The Moment. Disclaimer: if you’re at his place, you’re probably out of luck unless you’ve got one of the rare tidy ones.
Don’t forget the lube: This one might seem a little counterintuitive, but don’t make the rookie move of thinking water is a good natural lubricant. You have been warned.
Learn to love a loofah: When we think shower sex, we think lots of soapy suds, and a loofah’s your best bet for insta-bubbles and slow, sensuous washing.
Where’s your towel? This is one area where it’ll pay off to have a little bit of foresight. Do you have two towels nearby (or one of if you want to share. Bonus points for drying each other off) Are they cleanish? We don’t care how hot he got you in there, once that water shuts off, it’s going to be goose-bump city, ruining any post or mid coitus high.
Take it slooooww. Shower sex is best when it has a chance to build. Let the steam get denser and the kisses get steamier as if you have all the time in the world. Shower sex is all about the dreamlike, unhurried crescendo. Don’t go rushing a good thing!
