The scent of the skin, an intoxicating perfume, a skimpy dress; and then a romantic atmosphere topped off with scented candles and exotic incense. These are just some of the aspects that can stimulate the senses and increase the pleasures of a sexual relationship, which is often shaped by the environment in which we find ourselves. On the other hand, sex in water is one of the most common erotic fantasies.
We are often looking for unusual, and romantic places to make love. Chief among these are swimming pools, jacuzzi, shower, and, of course, the ocean.
Making love in water is an electrifying experience that makes us feel transgressive and, thanks to its density and the floating effect
But why is it so exciting to have sex in the water?
Putting aside romance, which is perhaps the biggest factor. Our bodies become much lighter in the water, and the sensation of floating in the partner’s arms is an overwhelming, relaxing pleasure that makes us feel free and craving an experience that often becomes quite memorable. Whether we are in the ocean or in the pool, in the home bathtub or in the shower, water is the only one of the 4 elements capable of unleashing such erotic and primordial instincts.
But sex in water does not always facilitate intercourse. On the contrary, we ofter associate water with humidity which does not favor vaginal lubrication. Reason being that upon immersion, the water enters the bottom of the vagina and the secretions are eliminated, causing dryness. Therefore, it may be necessary to use silicone lubricants that are water resistant to prevent the vaginal lining from getting irritated, as lubrication is altered when you are in an aquatic environment.
Having sex in water does not protect us from STIs (sexually transmitted infections). For this reason, the use of a condom is recommended. It is important to note that the condom must be applied prior to entering the water, making sure that there are no air bubbles to reduce the possiblity of it slipping off upon entering the water.
Given the risk of losing it during the act, it is of course highly recommended that you only attempt this with a partner you can trust.
Base on clinical research, it would seem that the salt water of the sea does not damage the silicone of the condom. It is important to note however that the silicone can corrode in the presence of chlorine and ozone, which are found in pool water. The use of bath oils in the tub or shower can also interfere with the structural integrity of the condom.
At this point, you are likely asking yourself how much can the density, temperature, and the salt levels in ocean water, influence sex and modify the sensations we experience?
As many of us have felt, the blood in our body is quite sensitive to both heat and cold. Hot blood vessels dilate, while cold blood vessels constrict. In some cases, men require stimulation in the form of heat for an optimal erection. There are some drawbacks when the other end of the spectrum: cold tempratures. In some cases, upon contact with cold water, men can experience some rather unpleasant effects. Not the least of which is having the blood vessels in the penis constrict, causing the penis to shrink and no longer being able to become erect. In additon, the penis undergoes a muscle contraction to help compensate for the sudden shift in temperature.
