asturbation can be a straightforward moment, one with the only purpose of reaching orgasmic pleasure. It can also be a moment where you take time to connect with your body; exploring your erogenous zones and building up a delicious and climaxing pleasure.

I often masturbate with the first mindset, but I also enjoy having long, devoted masturbation sessions. Mostly they happen on my bed, but I also masturbate on my armed rocking chair, and on the shower.

Since I moved to a studio, six months ago, I lost the marvellous pleasure of having a long, relaxing bath in a tub (which, of course, often included masturbation).

Now that I only have a shower, that pleasure is gone. Yet, I didn’t it ruin my wet, sexy, and pleasurable masturbation. I only had to adjust my method.

How to masturbate in the shower

Unlike masturbating in the tub — where you can choose among different positions — , in a shower, there’s only one way to do it: standing. If you have enough space, you can sit down, of course.

For that reason, there are a few extra considerations to have:

Safety first

If you don’t have a slip-resistant mat on your shower, I recommend you get one.

Because you’ll be standing, and eventually on one foot only (not focusing on maintaining the balance), it’s important you don’t stand on unsafe ground.

Also, because there’s a high probability the showerhead might be in close contact with your genitals, wash it beforehand (but not with harsh chemicals.)

How to make the best of shower masturbation

I usually start by using the hot water cascade as foreplay.

I love to just stand under the showerhead and let the warm water wash away my stress and physical tiredness. When I feel relaxed enough, I then start touching myself, whenever the mood takes me.

Then the showerhead enters the scene. Mine has different settings (but not very potent, I need a new one), so I try them out, as each one delivers different sensations. I point the water jet to my clit and, again, I go along with my pleasure.

Usually, I use my fingers to open my labia, so the water spray hits my vagina more directly. And then, while they’re there, I do some pleasurable fingering, whilst the water continues to stimulate my clit.

Because I’m standing, there are not many options regarding my position, the only variants are me against the wall with my back or my front, and with both feet down or one supported on the wall.

Either way, as I said above, it’s only a matter of adjusting your method and find the best (and safe) positions to self-pleasure.

Invite a sex toy in

Sex toys are a great addition to your sex life, solo or partnered.

As much fun as you can have by yourself using only the showerhead and your fingers, a sex toy can notch up your masturbation session.

The only concern you must have is ensuring the sex toy is waterproof.

Also, never, but never take a sex toy to the shower if you’re charging it. I know how basic this advice is, but how many times you read about someone how died because they were in the tub while charging their phone?

Personally, I use the wall to support myself while using the toys (normally I take my magic wand or a vibrator); it’s how I feel to be the safest solution. Besides, it takes my mind away from worrying about maintaining my balance.

Extra teasers

To make your shower masturbation even more pleasurable, there are other things you can add to the moment.

I have an intense relationship with music. It inspires me when I write; it helps me with improving my mood and, of course, it triggers a sex(y) mood.

When I masturbate, I always have music on. The only exception is when I’m watching porn.

If my masturbation is happening in the shower, I take my speaker to the bathroom, I choose my “sensual playlist” and make the best of my me-moment.

Instead of music, you can choose an erotic audio-book or even have porn as background noise; it can be extremely arousing.

Also, I’m a sucker for candles; I find it very intimate and it gives the perfect ambience when masturbating.

you’re not used to it, masturbating on your feet in a potential slippery place can seem tricky, but if you have the right precautions and allow your desires to guide your movements, I’m sure that in no time you’ll be an expert.

Explore the different settings of your removable showerhead, and chose the ones that work the best for your arousal. Take your favourite waterproof sex toy with you and have the best relaxing and pleasurable shower of all times!
