Essential Credentials: Get clean while doing the dirty

Leanne Osmond - Essential Credentials (Tom Bateman/AQ)

Sex is all kinds of fun, but it can definitely get boring. I cannot stress enough how important it is to keep sex exciting, and if you want to keep sex hot and exciting you’re going to have to change things up a little bit.

This can mean doing any number of things but one sure-fire way to keep things spicy is to change the location – your bedroom shouldn’t be the only place “where the magic happens.” Really, you should be able to walk into just about any room in your house and make that statement.

The best place to do the do outside of the bedroom? The shower.  I’m not sure what makes shower sex so damn steamy- aside from the actual steam – maybe it’s the confined space, maybe it’s the hot water, or maybe it’s just the fact that you’re both in there all wet and naked. Either way, having sex in the shower sure is a lot of fun.

I have heard many stories of attempted shower sex ending in failure, and without a doubt, accomplishing such a task can be tricky. I wouldn’t recommend trying this out with someone you can’t have a laugh with because there’s bound to be some kind of mishap. Be it a slip, knocking over every bottle of shampoo, or hitting the temperature knob with your butt and getting a blast of freezing cold water – you just need to laugh those things off and get back to business.

A lot of people think their showers are too small, but smaller showers can work really well – mind you, it works better if you’re more on the flexible side. But, even if you aren’t, having sex in the shower can actually make you more flexible than you normally would be. All that steam and heat relaxes your muscles and before you know it your legs can bend in ways you never thought possible.

Shower sex alone is pretty awesome, but shower sex in the morning? Well, that’s just making a good thing even better. Ask any guy when they would love to see some action and one of those times is bound to be first thing in the morning. It might be because of that whole morning-wood situation, but it’s also because sex just makes you happier. It releases all kinds of chemicals in your brain, like oxytocin and dopamine, leaving you in a much better mood than you were when your alarm clock woke you up.

And really, can you think of a better way to start your day?
