These Positions Will Make Shower Sex As Hot As It Sounds

Unfortunately, shower sex is sometimes a better idea than actual sexual activity. Showers are wet and slippery, which can lead to some awkward fumbling or even injury (and nothing is more of a mood-killer than blaring ambulance sirens). Not to mention, if you have kids, your shower might be filled with your little ones' less-than-sexy bath toys — which is adorable, but not exactly orgasmic.
But it doesn't have to be that way. We think the shower deserves to be considered one of the best places in your home to have sex. It's multitasking at its finest, and it's a great place for morning sex. For those who haven't had much luck with shower sex, it just takes a little maneuvering. So whether you're looking to enjoy oral, vaginal, or anal, we've rounded up the best sex positions for when you're soaping up. Don't forget to check back, as we'll be updating the list with new ones regularly.
Pro tip: If kneeling down on your hard shower or bathtub floor doesn't feel good, you can simply place a towel under your knees (it's going to get wet anyway). Also, keep in mind that there's a plethora of fabulous waterproof vibrators out there, which can really turn things up a notch.
While we're arguably more in control of and confident about our sexuality than ever, there's still so much we don't know about female arousal. So this month, we're exploring everything you want and need to know about how women get turned on now. Check out more here.

Wet Cowgirl/Cowboy

You'll need to be a lucky duck with a tub big enough to accomodate two conjoined bodies for this wet version of cowgirl/cowboy. As your partner sits in the bathtub with their legs outstretched forward and erect penis or strap-on pointing up, slowing lower yourself onto them as you enjoy the pulsing of warm shower water raining down over you. While it may sound counter-intuitive, sex in water be can drying on vaginas, so lube up for this one.

Soaked Standing Oral

Standing oral sex in the shower is perfect for multi-tasking. As your partner stands and faces the shower head, plop down on your knees and give them a below-the-waist scrub down with your tongue.

Standing Wet Doggy

Stand under the shower head as your partner enters you from behind with their penis or a strap-on. If you need added balance, use your arms to support yourself on the shower walls or ceiling.

The Shower Rim

Shower sex is the answer to any germaphobe hang-ups you may have about rimming (a.k.a. analingus). After you've scrubbed your butthole clean, have your partner sit down and press their face into your ass, using their tongue to pleasure your bum.

Steamy Seated Peasant

Peasant is the Kama Sutra term for when a person with a vagina leans back into their partner's lap and spreads their legs, allowing for clitoral stimulation and vaginal penetration with a penis, fingers, or a waterproof dildo.

If you have a shower with a bathtub, this is a super intimate position that becomes even cozier in a steam-filled shower. Want to make it even more intimate? Turn off harsh overhead bathroom lights and opt for candles instead.

Hot Confessional

This oral sex position is perfect if you're a lucky duck who owns a shower with a bench. But no need to worry if you don't — by having the person receiving oral sex sit on a stack of folded towels (that you don't mind getting soaked), you can create a makeshift bench. Or, if your shower is in a bathtub, you can just place a towel on the edge of the bathtub so the seated partner can avoid slipping. Then, the partner on their knees can give the steamiest blow job or pussy-eating of their life.
