From the looks of our stunning model here (who just happens to be my sister by the way) the idea of some afternoon delight under the mist of a gentle water fall sounds like an excellent one. I’m right, right?

Or mayhap you’re considering a frolic at the beach or in the bath. No matter the wet and wild location, its highly  likely that a spur of the moment sexual impulse of the aquatic variety will lose its magic rather speedily when certain realities set in.

I give you for example tiny sprays water jetting up your nose or into your eyes. Yeah, thats hot. Or banging your elbows and knees against the cold hard ceramic of an unrelenting bathtub? Pass. A secluded beach sounds drop dead romantic until wet and dry sand both start grinding at your most unmentionable of crevices. It’s all fun and games until the bruises, welts and painfully gritty crotch take over the sexcapades.

Truth be told its perhaps a better route to settle in somewhere soft and cushy for your hot and steamy trysts. The shower or hot tub can be a great pre-game but in the interest of reaching the finish line unscathed, my advice is to transition from water sports to water bed before someone loses an eye.

All relationships have ebbs and flows. Sometimes you’re on top of the world and sometimes it’s just another day in a long line of days that keep on going.

If you’re like me, you want to avoid those “just another day” days as much as possible. Life is meant to be savoured, after all—it’s meant to be amazing! But sometimes the comfort of knowing someone so well can result in being too, well, comfortable.

Next time you’re looking to spice things up, instead of using a shower as your alone time, why not ask your partner to join you? It’s a great way to change the location without getting TOO crazy.

Not sure if it’s your thing? Here are some reasons to give it a try:

– Many showers have ledges and handles, perfect for trying new or tricky standing positions
– Sexy shower hair (and faces and bodies)! Seriously, this is a definite perk.
– Easy cleanup. You’re less likely to work up a sweat. And, if you do, it’s easy to wash off (same goes if one partner is on her period or if you want to avoid any mess).

I’m not saying sex in the shower needs to replace your favourite location, but it doesn’t hurt to give it a shot. You might find it’s a new favourite.
