How does one make a steamy shower even hotter? With shower sex, of course. Along with being an important component of a man’s penis care regimen, shower time can be a prime opportunity to spice up a couple’s sex life. Couples need to take certain safety precautions when engaging in this racy activity - detachable handles, a shower mat and silicone-based lubricant are important to have on hand, for example. Along with these considerations, it behooves a man to have some shower sex positions lined up in his mind so that he and his partner can make full use of this unique environment. Below are 6 positions that are great for shower playtime.

1) Outer Play

This first position actually doesn’t involve penetration, but serves as a great foreplay move. If the partner is cool with it, the man can suds up her buttocks and pump his manhood in between the cheeks while using his hand - or, better, a detachable shower head - to stimulate her clitoris. Not all partners are comfortable with butt stuff, so check in with her first.

2) Standing Doggie

The female partner can bend over and support herself with her hands on the rim of the tub while the man enters from behind. If there is a significant height difference, the woman may need a stool. If a stool is used, both partners need to ensure that it is sturdy and secure. The man can hold the woman steady at the hips, and she can either spread her legs (if not using a stool) or keep her thighs squeezed tightly together for an ultra-deep feel. This position is great for woman who like deep penetration, and for men who like going deep.

3) Wall-Press

In this position, the woman’s front side is facing the wall and her arms are stretched up and against the wall. The man enters from behind and can press the woman’s hands into the wall if both partners like this element of control. He can also place his hands on her hips for greater thrust control.

4) Man Chair

A man can make himself a very enjoyable chair for his partner by sitting down and stretching his legs out (bending at the knees if he’s tall). The woman can then face him, sit on his lap and go for a ride. The hot water will gently massage her back as she rocks back and forth, making this position even more pleasurable.

5) Leg Lift

The female partner can bend her leg and place her foot on the edge of the tub while the man stands in front of her and enters. Again, a stool may be needed if a drastic height difference is in play. The woman should have something secure to hold onto, such as a stable shower rod, so that she can maintain balance.

6) Leg Lift (Assisted)

In this position, the woman presses her back against a wall and the man stands in front of her; she lifts her bent leg, and he places the back of her knee over the crook of his elbow to hold her leg up.

Note: Some people who are not comfortable with anal play are down for it in the shower, but not everyone. A man should never assume that the butt is open territory, whether for manual, mouth or penetrative play. Couples should discuss boundaries before trying anything new.

After a hot session of shower sex, a man might be sore despite adequate use of lubrication. He can do his skin and nerves a favor by applying a quality penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) after drying off. Natural hydrators keep skin smooth and supple, while vitamins and antioxidants protect nerve and circulatory function. Keep a product in the bathroom for easy access after showers, whether sex was a component of tub time or not.
