Is it safe to have sex in the shower? I know that it's not good to have sex in a pool or the ocean because water can get trapped in our vaginal canals and cause infections but is that risk lowered when your body isn't immersed completely in water? Just wondering!

Knowlege IS Power.

Sex is still more of a dry-land activity: water washes away lubrication, which makes condom use difficult (they're much more likely to break) and can make penetration uncomfortable.

If you want to give this a try, anyway, just make sure you're both tested for STIs and are using a back-up method of BC.
