How to Have Sex in a Hot Tub

Make the most of your aquatic adventure with these tips.

You will need

  • Privately owned hot tub
  • Silicone-based lubricant
  • Candles
  • Music
  • Cold drinks and snacks

Step 1 Stay at home Confine hot tub sex to your own hot tub, or that of someone you can count on to maintain theirs properly. Studies have found a lot of germs in public ones.

Step 2 Use lubrication Use a silicone lubricant; water washes away both a woman’s natural lubrication and water-based lubricants.

Step 3 Plan ahead If you normally rely on spermicide or condoms for birth control, have another plan: Both are less effective in water.

Step 4 Set the mood Set the mood with candles, music, and cold drinks and snacks. Try to take your dip during a sunrise or sunset.

Step 5 Fool around Take advantage of the water’s buoyancy to experiment with different sexual positions.

Step 6 Head for dry land Continue the session on dry land. When it comes to underwater sex, there can be too much of a good thing!
