Masturbation tips when Showering

You shower daily (I hope so), and yet, are you using your time wisely in the shower? In other words, are you getting some self-pleasure in between shampooing and conditioning?

Now, maybe you have some traumatic memories of shower sex, but listen, this is solo shower sex. So you don’t need to worry about maneuvering yourself around another person.

Shower masturbation is not only safer than shower sex; it’s steamy—like really steamy. Of course, your first time may be a little awkward. But once you find the right angle and waterproof sex toys to use, you’ll be well on your way to reaching climax. So, to help you get started, here are 7 ways to masturbate in the shower.

1. Get your shower prepared

Naturally, there is one major concern with shower head masturbation, and that’s slipping and falling. I get it. The last thing you want is to end up in a cast over a bad masturbation accident. How are you going to explain that to your parents and friends?

So, to avoid any accidents from happening, prepare your tub/shower floor. Get yourself a slip-resistant mat for the floor and choose a position that can allow you to grab something if you start to feel unbalanced.

2. Turn the lights down low

Masturbating in the bathtub/shower isn’t much different than any other place you masturbate in, it’s just wetter. Of course, you want to create a sensual and sexy atmosphere for yourself to get into the mood. That said, there are a couple of things you can do to achieve that.

Depending on what turns you on, you can light some candles, play music that turns you on, or listen to an erotic audiobook. Bring out your favorite shower sex toy, like a suction cup dildo or waterproof vibrator, and unwind. This is your time to pamper yourself, so indulge in what makes you feel good.

3. Invest in waterproof sex toys

With shower masturbation, to amp things up, bring along your shower sex toy. If you don’t have one, it’s about time you did because they’ll rock your world. Now, there are different types of sex toys for women and sex toys for men. But it’s important to look at a couple of general factors when choosing a shower sex toy.

Make sure they’re waterproof—the last thing you want is a waterlogged sex toy. The toys can range in style; you can opt for a waterproof vibrator, butt plugs, a shower dildo, or vibrating loofah. For example, with a suction cup dildo, you can adjust the height and location of where you want it to suit your needs.

4. Don’t forget the lube!

I know what you’re thinking, but I’m in the shower? Isn’t that wet enough? And the answer is no. Yes, water is wet, but it’s not lubricating wet. Whether you’re using a vibrator or shower dildo, to reduce friction for anal or vaginal penetration use a silicone-based waterproof lube. Don’t be cheap—lather that lube on!


5. Know the right positions

Just like sex, it always helps to change positions. Whether you’re using sex toys for women, sex toys for men, or just your hand, take the time to find positions that work for you.

Some people are more comfortable in a seated position, some prefer to stand, and others like to sit on the shower floor. If you have a bathtub, you can try sitting on the side of the tub as well. There’s no wrong way to masturbate in the shower.

6. Get to know your shower head

You may be looking for waterproof sex toys like a suction cup dildo or waterproof vibrator, but either you’re waiting for it to arrive or haven’t found the one you like yet. In the meantime, get familiar with your shower head.

Oh, you thought your shower head was only used to wash yourself? Think again! Through shower head masturbation, your shower head is going to quickly become your best friend.

To stimulate the clitoris, use your shower head’s water pressure. Just make sure the water isn’t too hot and the stream isn’t too strong. When you found the right balance of temperature and pressure, let the water do the work for you.

Top tip: Make sure your shower head is clean and body safe.

7. Take an actual bath

If your shower has a built-in bathtub, why not try out bathtub masturbation? If your shower is a walk-in, sorry, you’re out of luck. However, if you’re the lucky ones, you can continue the fun while laying back in the bathtub.

Use your shower head in hand for shower head masturbation. Why stop the pleasure? But if you’re looking to relax after a satisfying self-pleasure session, laying back in the bathtub with candles and music will help you unwind.

Masturbating in the shower is an amazing way to experience stimulation and play around with your senses. So, when the time is right, hop into the shower with your sex toy and have fun!
