If the summer is coming, we are all thinking of planning our vacations to sunny places, where holiday sweet hearts await us with open arms. And in the movies it looks so great: sex in the water. But is it as easy as just jumping in and go about it? We give you some tips.
Safe sex in a pool?
Rule #1 of sex is that it should be safe. But in the water that is, to say the least, a challenge. Try putting on a condom onder water. And although there hasn’t been much research, you can rest assure that the chemicals in swimming pools and bubble baths don’t go very well with the rubber of your condom. And the condom will probably slip off. Not to mention: where do you leave any spare condoms (or the packaging)?
Besides, it is hard to check if your partner (both man of woman) has pulled off the condom secretly. So in short, safe sex in the water: don’t count on it. Consider manual sex. That’ll work. Oh, and guys: don’t keep her head under water too long …
This may sound strange, but water doesn’t slide. It will only wash away any natural lube. So if your partner isn’t slippery of her own, consider a silicone based lubricant. That can handle the water. The downside is that they don’t go well with condoms. Choices, choices ….
Sex in the water. But where?
1. In a public pool: Sure? Of course it is exciting, with so many people around you, but beware of any kids with goggles on (that can see all the details under water). If you are lucky enough to have a pool at home at least you will not be disturbed and are a bit more free to move around. Be careful with chemicals in the water. They might lead to an infection if they wind up in the vagina.
Oral sex can be good fun too. Go sit on the edge of the pool and have your partner take place in the water (definitely not done in a public pool).
2. In the bathtub or under the shower: Most bathtubs are not big enough to do fun positions. Besides, the water will probably go over the edge. The shower is a great alternative. But beware not to slip. Remember that shower heads are not attached firmly (so don’t put your weight on it).
3. Mother nature: Salt water (from the sea, you know) is not exactly a vagina’s best friend. But even worse is the ‘sand factor’. It looks so great in the movie, but believe us: sand in your crack (or elsewhere) is not pleasant. So take a large blanket or sheet and start in the water and end on your blanket.
If you are not a practiced sea swimmer, please be very aware of the current. Before you know it, you will be floating off and the rescue brigade has to pick you up. So always keep a foot on the ground. Always.
