How To Have Shower Sex

Shower sex.
We’ve all thought about it.
Who wouldn’t want to combine two great things into one?
And, while it’s a nice idea, it does come with some difficulties.
But don’t worry!
The Loveangels team is here to tell you how to have shower sex - properly!

A How-To Guide For Great Shower Sex

Turn Up The Heat

While temperature play can be fun, it’s hard for things to get hot and heavy when it’s freezing.
It’s only when things get intense that we realise how much area a showerhead can cover.
Make sure to turn up the heat so that you’re not too cold when you get into it.

Get Shower-Friendly Lube

We know what you’re thinking, “But water’s wet - it works as a lubricant!”
Unfortunately, that’s where we have to disagree.
Yes, water is wet.
But it’s not a lubricant.
In fact, it can make the vagina feel dry, making it difficult to properly enjoy sex. 
Look at investing in a silicone lubricant that won’t wash away - but be careful not to spill it on the shower floor.
It’s slippery!

Invest In A Shower Mat

A non-slip bath mat is absolutely vital if you’re planning on getting into shower sex.
They’re great for providing stable footing for you or your partner.

Rinse, Rinse, Rinse!

While lathering up your partner may get the mood going, slipping on soap or shampoo on the floor can very quickly kill that.
Make sure you rinse the floor well.
And remember - soap is NOT lube.

Bath Toys

These aren’t the ones for kids, folks. 
There are some pretty impressive toys out there that are completely waterproof, as well as things like butt plugs.

Don’t Focus On Penetration

In this “how to have shower sex” guide, we can’t stress enough how important it is to not focus on penetration.
Oral sex and exploring one another’s bodies are definitely things to look at when it comes to having sex in the shower.

Top Shower Sex Positions 

If you’re determined enough, you could have shower sex in just about any position, but that doesn’t mean it’s enjoyable.
We’ve got some positions in mind that’ll make shower sex enjoyable - and not lead to a trip to the ER.

  • Standing Doggy Style

This take on the classic doggy style focuses on using the wall for support while keeping your feet firmly planted on the ground - or the shower mat.

How It’s Done

Place your palms flat against the shower wall, leaning into it with your knees slightly bent.
Your partner can then penetrate you from behind with anything they’d like, or focus on things like anal or oral sex.

  • Sit And Ride

This works well for vaginal sex, but it can also work for anal sex if you angle yourself right.

How It’s Done

Have your partner sit on the floor (or a shower bench if you have one) or the side of the tub if you’ve got a standalone shower head.
This will allow you to straddle them, allowing for comfortable penetration while you hold onto them for a great ride.

  • Leg Up

While it’s not necessary to have one, a footrest is great for this position.

How It’s Done

Stand facing your partner, and bring one leg up to the footrest, bench or tub’s edge.
If you don’t have any of those things, you can have your partner hold your leg up with one hand while they thrust.

  • Got My Back

Similar to the Leg Up position, the big difference is that you’re not facing your partner.
It works for vaginal and anal penetration.

How It’s Done

Stand facing the shower wall and rest your foot on the footrest, bench or tub’s edge.
Have your partner stand right behind you and hold your leg for extra support while they penetrate you.

  • The Chairperson

Think reverse cowgirl - but for shower sex.

  • How It’s Done

Let your partner sit on the shower bench, tub’s edge, or the floor.
Straddle their lap, facing away from them, and position yourself for anal or vaginal penetration.
Place your hands on their knees or against the shower wall for balance.

Some Things To Keep In Mind

  • Condoms

Shower sex may be clean, but it won’t protect you from STIs.
Make sure you use protection if you’re unsure.

  • Consent Is The Most Important Thing

Show sex may not be for everybody.
Make sure your partner wants to (and enjoys) having shower sex.

  • Things Get Slippery Outside Too

Not slipping in the shower is one thing, but don’t forget that you can slip outside of the shower, too.

  • Staying Wet For Too Long Can Be Bad

Damp nether regions can be a breeding ground for more than just your partner. Bacteria and fungi love warm, damp environments.
Make sure you clean off well to avoid UTIs or yeast infections.


If you want to know how to have shower sex, it boils down to four things:
Be careful.
Embrace trial and error
Listen to your partner.
Have fun.
