Position #24: Shower Sex

Shower sex can be so exciting. Often spontaneous, it can be wonderfully romantic or hot and steamy, and yet it can be difficult sometimes to get the angle working right. That can be an issue with any standing position so I was happy to find a shower position that worked really well.

For this position it will be helpful if you have a sturdy, built in soap dish in your shower, similar to this:

The woman will position herself so that she can prop her foot up on the soap holder. Depending on how the plumbing is in your shower, you may also find that propping your foot on the tap or even the corner of the tub will work as well, but you might find that it works better if your foot is higher than the edge of the tub. Another option is to wrap your leg around your husband. These options will open you up and allow your husband to enter you more easily. You can do this even without resting your foot on something, but it can be tiring and I find that with the slippery surface of the shower floor it is better to have something to support me a bit more than my one foot. It may help with the angle if you press your pelvis into your husband and then lean back in his arms. Of course, that all depends on the height difference between you and your husband. The position will look something like this:

Pros ~ Steamy shower sex, a fun change, oral sex in the shower can be a good way for couples to start if they are hesitant about oral

Cons ~ Requires you to balance on one leg, can get tiring


  1. I have to agree that shower sex is wonderful! My husband and I also do it rear entry style with myself bent over with my hands on the wall or the tub edge.

    We also found this to be one of the best positions during pregnancy. In bed, many positions put uncomfortable pressure on the growing belly, but this position put no pressure on the belly. Also, if you are both in the shower together, it means you are probably both already fairly awake… a plus for an overtired pregnant woman!

  2. Wow!!!!! We have been married for over twelve years and have tried a number of times to have sex in the shower…we’ve never been successful until last night.

    I didn’t find it at all difficult to put one foot in the soap dish! We were so amazed at how exciting everything was!!!

    This morning my husband sent me a text saying, “I can’t believe that soap dish!.”

    We are loving this website…I’d felt so abnormal for loving sex with my husband so much until now!

    Thanks a million!

  3. We have been married almost 14 years… my husband has ALWAYS wanted to have shower sex…. well…… we did it, and it was WONDERFUL!! I am so happy to have found this website, I am learning so much. It has helped me to come out of my “nice girl” shell in the bedroom, and I believe for the first time we are truly starting to have the kind of marriage God intended for us to have.
