Get rubbed in the tub

Wet, naked bodies... Slippery surfaces... The shower was practically made for getting it on. Equipped with the right tools (think: silicone lube and a footstool if you want to get really crazy) and the know-how below, you'll be getting dirty while you get clean.

"Standing with her back to him, she dips slightly at the knees while leaning forward, leaning against the wall of the stall or, if the shower is in a tub, she'll lift a leg and balance her foot on the edge of the bath. He spoons up behind her with his legs hip-width apart (if she is lifting her leg, he can help hold it in place). In addition to making it easier for him to slip and slide into her, these small shifts will even out any height difference issues and ensure they are both dripping with delight. She concentrates on standing firm while he grabs her hips and gets down and dirty," says Lisa Sweet, author of 365 Sex Thrills.

Pro tip: "Water can actually be drying, so lube up with a silicone gel — water-based ones just wash away," Sweet says.

Why it's awesome

"Water is sensual and adds a wet and wild sensation to lovemaking, especially if you play around with hot and cool temperatures," Sweet says. "Lightly rubbing sensitive bits with a soft, wet washcloth or spraying them with a handheld shower will help to lather things up even more."

"Her back is against the shower wall with one leg bent up to her side—it’s more helpful if the leg can be rested on a shower seat. He bends his legs slightly to enter her from underneath. The couple is facing one another with their chests and pelvises rubbing against one another," says clinical sexologist and couples therapist Kat Van Kirk.

Why it's awesome

"The body-to-body pressure helps target the clitoris while allowing for deeper penetration from underneath while her breasts rub against his chest," Van Kirk says. "His hands can roam all over her body, while being face to face creates more opportunity for deep kissing."

How you do it

"Sit face-to-face as the hot water teems down over your hot bodies. She throws her feet up over his shoulders as he slides inside and pulls her by the hips to create the perfect rhythm," says Dr. Jess O'Reilly, Ph.D., author of The Little Book of Kink.

Why it's awesome

"This is a great position for kinking it up a little. He can tie her hands behind her back (as long as she can still support herself) or add a blindfold into the mix to heighten the sensation of the cool tub, hot water and intense connection," O'Reilly says.
