i was just wondering, i know that it's not a good idea to have sex with a condom when submerged in water, but what about in the shower? does contact with water decrease the effectiveness of the condom, or should it be okay? i've always been really turned on by water, but me and my partner haven't done anything near water just in case. any ideas?

t'anks a ton!

Contact with water in the shower shouldn't decrease the effectiveness of a condom too much -- just make sure to use plenty of lube (you might want to use a silicone-based lube, cause it will wash away less quickly) to help keep things slippery, and be careful not to let either you or your partner slip!
