In Hot Water: Our Guide to Hot Tub Sex

In Hot Water: Our Guide to Hot Tub Sex
on December 30, 2017 in Sex Talk

Looking for a new way to cozy up to your sweetie on a cold winter’s night?

If you’re taking your cue from the big screen, you might think hot tubs are the key to a sexy evening. From Boogie Nights to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off to Austin Powers, pop culture paints a pretty tempting picture of what hot tub sex is like. In reality, however, it’s a little different.

So before you jump in the water, take a look at the tips below. We’ll dispel some common myths and guide you through some of our favorite positions for a steamy spa night you won’t forget!

Safety First

Let’s be clear: penetrative sex in a hot tub still carries all the same risks (and then some!) as sex on dry land. Yes, you can still get pregnant, and yes, you can still transmit STIs.

Unfortunately, water isn’t a great environment for condoms — the lubricant washes off, so there’s a higher chance the condom could break, and like many things, condoms are slippery when wet.

Also, strange as it may seem, water is a terrible personal lubricant. In fact, you might find that everything in the hot tub is wet, except for you. Not only will this make sex uncomfortable, if your vagina isn’t well-lubricated, sex could actually result in microtears, which is something you really don’t want when you’re sitting in a nice hot soup of chemicals and bacteria.

There’s nothing sexy about a UTI.

It’s Getting Hot in Here!

If you think we’re going to tell you to give up on the idea of hot tub sex completely, don’t fear! Your friendly sexpert has some solid reach-arounds . . .  er, work-arounds for the problems hot tub sex might cause.

The hot tub is still a great place to start things off. Kissing, sliding your hands over your partner’s wet skin, pressing your weightless bodies together — all these activities will ensure the hot water isn’t the only thing making your temperature rise. When you’re ready for the main event, let the hot tub serve as a sexy backdrop while you go at it on the deck or the edge of the tub. If you really want to stay in the water, have your partner lie on their back with their hips right at the edge of the tub while you pleasure them orally. You can penetrate them in this same position later while you stand or kneel in the tub. You can also both move out of the tub, grab a towel and some lube. Have one partner kneel on the towel while the other partner pours on the lube (lots of it, to counter the drying effect of the hot tub), then commence with penetration while enjoying the beautiful view of your partner’s glistening skin and the slippery feel of their body against yours.

Keep It Clean

We know sometimes you get caught up in the heat of the moment (because obviously you’d never purposely ignore our advice!), so we’ll go ahead and tell you what to do if you or your partner ejaculates in the hot tub.

First, don’t stress. A little sperm is no match for the hot water and chemicals; any swimmers will be dead within seconds. Just like any other bodily fluid, semen will get filtered out, though you may still want to drain and refill your tub, especially if other guests will be using it.

And while we’re on the subject of hot tub cleanliness, make sure yours is clean, balanced, and sanitized before and after you use it for sexy times.

It may not look like it does in the movies, but your hot tub sex dreams absolutely can come true! Just play it safe, use plenty of lube, and save the penetration for post-soaking.
