The Only Sex Position You'll Want in a Heatwave


"For July, it’s all about shower sex to rinse off after a sweaty day and stay cool," suggests Alicia Sinclair, sex educator and CEO of b-VibeLe Wand, and The Cowgirl.

"Shower sex has fun foreplay opportunities that can help you switch up your routine. Start with helping each other wash up, and turn it into a full body massage. Showers also provide an excellent echo chamber for any sexy sounds, so let those moans out while you’re enjoying the ride!"

Luckily, there's no shortage of wet-and-wild sex positions to try in the shower — especially if you happen to be blessed with the skill of flexibility. But if you're a newbie to the shower sex scene and are worried about the logistics of certain, more complicated positions, there's one that's perfect to start out with: standing doggy style.


"To have some wet fun without a falling hazard, try standing doggy style," Sinclair says. "Have the receiver stand with their feet spread and knees slightly bent, supporting themselves with their hands on the wall of the shower. When the receiver is bent over at about a 45-degree angle, the other partner can then enter from behind (with a penis, finger, sex toy, etc.). Everyone can keep two feet on the ground, no acrobatics required."

"When you’re worried about balancing or getting at the right angle, you compromise the opportunity to relax and own your pleasure," Sinclair says. "Standing doggy style has all of the goodies of a romp in the shower, while sticking to a classic position that won’t feel like a workout."


Who would've though that showers could be the perfect place for a little sexual exploration?

Whether you want to experiment with anal play or not, though, using sex toys in the shower can heighten your sexual experience either way, and add an extra level of pleasure to an already sultry adventure. So the next time you're hot, sweaty, and in the mood this month, invite your partner to hop in the shower and give standing doggy style a try — and then feel free to get creative with whatever comes next!
