Shower Masturbation Tips and Positions

Contrary to what some people might think, there is no definitive way to masturbate. It entirely depends on your individual preferences and desires, which opens up many variations. You can do it in bed, with or without a sex toy, while reading erotica or listening to a masturbation playlist. But while there’s no right or wrong way to masturbate, if you haven’t already tried masturbating in the shower or bath, let us tell you why it might improve your solo sessions.

The benefits of shower masturbation

There are many health benefits to masturbating in general. Not only can masturbating release feel-good hormones like endorphins, dopamine, and oxytocin, but it can also help you “get rid of headaches and body aches, reduce cold symptoms, and even reduce menstrual cramps,” according to Antonia Hall, a psychologist and sex expert, previously told POPSUGAR.

There’s no (or at least less) clutter in the shower, so there’s little cleanup, says sexologist Marla Renee Stewart, a sex expert for Lovers Sexual Wellness brand. It’s also a completely private space that doesn’t allow for accidental knocks on the door from your roommates or parents. Plus, “showering helps soften some of the noise you might be making when you’re on your way to orgasm,” Stewart says.

Finally, Sarah Riccio, sex educator and co-founder of Delicto, notes that “unlike masturbating in bed, solo shower play requires full nudity, which can increase arousal, boost confidence, and foster a deeper connection with your body.”

How to masturbate in the shower

Honestly, just like you would masturbate anywhere else, just with water. The main difference is that if you haven’t already, you’ll want to use some sort of lube instead of just relying on the water itself. While it sounds counterintuitive (isn’t water slippery?), “Running water can actually wash away your natural lube,” explains Riccio. For this reason, “Silicone-based lube is great for showering because it contains polymers that repel water and prevent it from washing away,” she says.

You can try silicone based lubes from this article – just note that silicone lubes should not be used with sex toys made of silicone as it will degrade the material of the toy. (If you find yourself in this predicament, use a water-based lube like this instead. You might just need to reapply more often.)

Ultimately, however, when it comes to masturbating in the shower, there is no step-by-step process for what you should be doing and how you should be doing it – just practice what feels good. Use your hands (or grab a sex toy), squeeze or rub your thighs together, or do whatever you normally do to come alone.

If you plan on using a sex toy to masturbate in the shower, make sure the accessory you choose is waterproof—not just waterproof. “Waterproof toys can withstand a few splashes of water and regular toy cleaning, but they can be easily damaged if submerged or soaked,” says Riccio. A great option is the Womanizer Premium ($189), a waterproof clitoral stimulator that mimics the sensations of cunnilingus. (In other words, if you love it when your partner descends on you, this babe is for you.) Another option is this classic rabbit vibrator ($100), which works both your clitoris and G- point stimulated at the same time.

Once you’ve decided on a waterproof sex toy, “experiment with different angles and make the most of the experience,” suggests clinical sexologist Rachel Sommer, PhD, co-founder of My Sex Toy Guide. “Try different speed settings until you find the rhythm that works for you.”

Even if you don’t want to take toys into the shower, Dr. Sommer to use the shower head on the clitoris, vulva or erogenous zones instead. If you don’t have a hand held shower you can use this Waterslyde product to experience similar sensations – just note that it’s better for bathing than showering.

Shower masturbation sex positions

Just do what feels most comfortable to you and adjust as needed to stay safe in the slippery, sometimes cramped space of your shower. You can try getting up, sitting on the shower floor, or running a bath and lying down in it instead. dr Sommer recommends starting on your back: “Just lay on your back and reach down there.”

For the adventurous, Dr. Summer the classic lotus yoga position (feet together, knees in butterfly position). “Not only is the clitoris more accessible from this position, but your pelvic muscles are active and you can squeeze them for more intense orgasms,” she says.

Finally, you could try a position with a suction cup dildo. “Stick it on the bottom of the tub, the side of the shower, the faucet — anywhere there’s an angle and depth of penetration that feels good,” says Riccio. Then get into position.

Tips for masturbation in the shower

1. Adjust the temperature of the water for the ultimate sensory experience. “Enjoy steaming shower water for 10 minutes, followed by a brief burst of cold, and then hot again. The sudden change in water temperature activates your parasympathetic nervous system, which can trigger a big burst of energy and send a delicious flow of blood to your genitals,” says Riccio .

2. Take the time to appreciate the sensations. “Don’t try to force yourself to have an orgasm,” says Stewart. Allow yourself to feel all things without putting pressure on an end goal.

3. Set the mood with candles and music. “Turn on your favorite music that makes you feel good, sexy and sexual. Putting yourself in the mood can help you have a better time with yourself,” Stewart says. Plus, candles make everyone feel sexy.

4. Invest in a non-slip shower mat like this one. Nobody wants to fall while experiencing an overwhelming orgasm.
