Best Waterproof Sex Toys & Tips for Great Shower Sex
Having fun in the bedroom doesn’t have to be limited to JUST the bedroom – you can easily get a little adventurous by moving your sexy time to the couch, to the kitchen, to the bathroom, to your desk, you name it. But the shower is by far one of the most popular places in most people’s homes to enjoy sexy time outside of the bedroom, be it solo or partnered! If you’re looking to bring a toy into the shower with you (especially if you live with roommates and the shower is the only space you have some peace & quiet to, well, get off), it’s important to make sure you pick a toy that’s completely waterproof, and that you know how to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.
In this blog post, we’ll be giving you our top 3 tips for having the best shower sex (by yourself or with a partner), as well as a list of our favorite waterproof sex toys, from strap-on dildos to clit vibes to butt plugs. Ready to get a little steamy? ;)
3 Tips for Steamy & Satisfying Shower Sex
Shower sex gets a ton of praise, especially in books, shows, & movies – and rightfully so, it can be so much fun – but there are some misconceptions out there that might leave you feeling unsatisfied with your next round of shower sex. Here are our top tips for making the most of your sexy time in the shower, whether you’re enjoying some solo masturbation time or you’re gettin’ down & dirty (well, clean?) with a partner!
1. Use the right type of lube
The MOST important thing when it comes to shower sex is using lube – and using the right kind, at that! In a lot of shows/movies, shower sex is portrayed as this super sexy, smooth, and seamless way to have sex with a partner, but did you know that water actually washes away your body’s own natural lubricant? This can lead to dryness and/or tearing, which is the absolute last thing you want if you’re trying to enjoy time wth a partner under the showerhead! If you want to have penetrative sex in the shower, you better lube up! This will help you and your partner are feeling comfortable & can have as pleasurable of an experience as possible.
When picking out a lube to use in the shower, make sure you pick silicone lube, and NOT water-based lube. Silicone lube is the best kind of lube for shower sex because it holds up well under water, whereas water-based lubes are soluble and will wash off quickly.
HOWEVER: silicone lube cannot be used with silicone sex toys. We know – it sounds kinda counterintuitive, right? This is because silicone lube can actually cause silicone toys to deteriorate over time. So IF you want to use silicone sex toys in the shower, you’ll need to use them without lube, because remember: water-based lubes will simply wash off.
Bottom line: If you want to use sex toys in the shower, stick to stainless steel or glass toys that you can use (silicone) lube with. Or, use silicone sex toys if you’ve got enough natural lubricant to be comfortable. And make sure to use silicone lube if you’re having penetrative sex without toys, too!
If you don’t want to use any lube at all, you can also always stick to some frisky foreplay or spicy oral sex in the shower and leave penetrative sex for afterward, when your body won’t be so naturally dry!

2. Get creative with your space
Showers can be prettyyy small, so it’s time for you to get creative with the space you have! You might not be able to get into certain positions that you would with your partner on your bed, or you may not be able to position yourself how you usually like to for masturbation sessions – but that doesn’t mean you don’t have options. Take the opportunity to try out some new positions, angles, perspectives, and think outside of the box! If you have a bathtub, you’ve got some space that one of you could lay down and receive oral sex, or one of you could get on your knees to give the other oral while they stand up. If you have a bench in your shower, sit on your partner’s lap or have them bend over. If you want to masturbate with a dildo, grab a dildo with a suction that you can slap on the wall & back up against. The options are endless if you’re down to adapt, get creative, and switch up your usual positions a little!
3. Use the showerhead and/or faucet for extra fun
Finally, use what the shower gives you to your advantage! If you have a removable shower head (bonus points for the ability to switch to different modes/pressures), use that shower head to please yourself or your partner with a vulva – it’ll feel delicious on their clit. A partner with a penis may also enjoy the pressure tickling along their shaft! No removable shower head? No problem! If you have a vulva, and if you’re able, you can also lie down on your back and scoot yourself up to have the bath faucet stream down onto your clit. If you’re not able to do any of these things in your shower, don’t worry – that’s where sex toys come into the picture.
Best Waterproof Sex Toys to Use in the Shower
Let’s dive into all of our favorite waterproof sex toys that can be used in the shower, whether you’re alone or with a partner. Keep in mind also that there’s a difference between waterproof and splashproof – waterproof toys can be fully submerged or soaked in water without any issues, whereas splashproof toys can withstand a few splashes (hence the name). It’s best to use toys that are fully waterproof so that you can fully enjoy all the sensations, rather than having to try and block the toy from getting too wet.
