After a rainy summer in the northeastern USA, finally, the weather is warm and sunny! Of course, this means it’s time to head to the pool or hot tub. And once you’re wet, well… It’s a lot of desire to get wet in other ways as well. While a quick Google search can make you aware that underwater sex isn’t the safest option, the temptation is still there.

LubricationSil

Let’s cover a few basics first. If you’re using a condom, or even if you’re not, it’s almost certain that the lubrication from the condom or your body’s natural lubrication will wash away. For this reason, we suggest a silicone-based lubricant. Silicone lubes last longer and are great for water play. Also, silicone-based lubes are condom safe. Here are some of our favorites.

But what about “me time”, you ask? Right now, relaxing in the pool with my favorite toy and a cold beverage sounds amazing. However, lubrication is still a problem. If you’re playing internally, you’ll need that natural vaginal lubrication, and again, the water from the pool is likely to wash the lubrication that happens naturally away. A lot of our favorite toys are made from silicone. Silicone toys and silicone-based lubes do not mix. Because of this, go for a water-based lubricant. It’s more likely to wash away and you’ll likely have to apply more if you’re in for a long session, but hey, lube is a necessity! We suggest this body-safe lubricant.

Waterproof Toys

Speaking of “me time”, if you plan on using an adult toy in the pool, you have got to make sure your toy is waterproof! The last thing you want is for your obituary to say you passed away in a freak masturbation accident when your toy shorted underwater and electrocuted you. Or, more likely, for your favorite toy to get waterlogged and die. Here are some of our favorite toys that boast about being 100% waterproof!

Cleaning Up

Finally, the most important part about pool sex is clean-up. I know, that’s the boring part, but in this case, it’s so important. There’s so much bacteria floating around in whatever body of water you’re having fun in, even if it’s chlorinated. Furthermore, moisture is a great place for yeast and bacteria to grow and develop. Afterwards, make sure you go to the bathroom and clean up, preferably in a shower with some soap and water.

However, things happen. Say you’re on vacation and you and your partner get in the mood while walking on the beach at midnight. Next thing you know, you’re having half-submerged-in-the-ocean beach sex, and it’s a thirty minute walk back to the hotel, and hey, let’s stop for a drink on the way! Wow. This sounds amazing. I kind of want this to happen to me…

If you think a situation like this one might befall you, the kind where a shower isn’t available any time soon, it’s important to clean up as best as you can. We recommend carrying some wipes when traveling or if you expect some spontaneity to take place.
