How to Masturbate in the Bath
You’ve heard of masturbation in the shower, but you know you can also masturbate in the bathtub. Now, it’s not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when we think of the bathroom and solo-pleasure.
But if you know how to do it right, it’ll become your new favorite place to unwind. So, we’re going to teach you about bathtub masturbation.
1. Set the mood
Atmosphere plays a big role in your self-pleasure. Masturbation doesn’t need to be a quickie; why not take the time to enjoy your sexual experience—what’s the rush? Put on some music, light some candles, turn the lights down, play an erotic video, and just relax. Life is too short not to enjoy masturbating.
And if you are with your partner, set the mood right for your mutual masturbation session.
2. Add some bubbles
Who doesn’t love a good bubble bath? The bubbles—the foam! It doesn’t matter whether you’re a man or woman, bubbles and foam are fun in a bath. Plus, their scent can help relax and ease you into the mood. While you’re getting dirty, you can get clean at the same time with a bubble bath.
3. Relax your mind
If you want to achieve an intense orgasm, you’re going to have to relax. Orgasms are highly connected to our mental state, which is why we recommend setting the mood with candles and music. When in the bathtub, feel your wet skin, breathe in and out slowly, releasing all the tension you’ve experienced throughout the day. Connect back with yourself.
4. Use the shower head
Of course, you can stick to masturbating with your hands, but you’re in the bathtub, why not use what’s available to you? Shower head masturbation is the next level when it comes to masturbating in the bath tub. Just always make sure the shower head is clean and sanitized.
For women, with your shower head in hand, you can use it to stimulate the clitoris. For men, if you have a female partner, take note, because if you’re in the bath tub together, this is something you can do. There are a couple of ways to masturbate with a shower head:
- Hold the stream directly onto the clitoris.
- Move the shower head in a circular motion, up and down, or side-to-side.
- Experiment with positions by squatting or laying down in the bathtub with your legs spread.
5. Three words: Waterproof sex toys
When it comes to bathtub masturbation, this is something you should invest in. Waterproof sex toys, like the Kiiroo Pearl2 G-Sport vibrator is the perfect example of waterproof sex toys for women.
The Pearl2 can fulfill your intimate needs while in the bathtub, so you won’t need to worry about water damage—this is one toy that can handle the elements. You can also connect the Pearl2 to interactive content for enhanced solo fun. Who said bathtub masturbation couldn’t be taken to the next level?
6. Don’t focus solely on the penis or vagina
Masturbating in the bathtub is so much more than just stimulating your penis or vagina. Yes, your genitals play a role in masturbation, but there’s much more that goes into pleasure.
While in the bathtub, whether you’re alone or with a partner, explore other erogenous zones. Feel your wet skin with your fingers, caress, rub, pinch, or squeeze parts of your body such as the neck, mouth, lips, ears, and nipples—seeing which areas turn you on. During this time, you can also experiment with waterproof sex toys.
7. Test out your faucet
Have you ever heard about a faucet orgasm? Well, you’re going to be glad you know about it now. Your running faucet will quickly become your best friend. Make sure your faucet is clean and ready for use.
To achieve a faucet orgasm position yourself under the stream and let the running water from your faucet do the rest of the work. It’ll take some time to find the right position for you, but once you do, you’ll thank us.
8. Try edging
The beauty of edging is that it’s extremely versatile. You can do it in the bathtub, out of the bathtub, with sex toys for women or men, or simply with your hand. When in the bathtub and pleasuring yourself, stop right before you’re about to orgasm.
Then, start back up again. Continue to stop and continue until you’re ready to orgasm. This is called edging. For both men and women, this will intensify the orgasm.
Whether you’re trying out shower head masturbation, or want to achieve a faucet orgasm, enjoy this time in the bathtub. Whether it’s for solo-pleasure or with your partner. You don’t need to save the intimacy for the bedroom; the bathroom is also the perfect place to get naughty.
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.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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!
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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!
