...can come too. Especially if you're working with a limited timeframe, adding sex toys into the aquatic sex mix can ensure that everyone comes away from your experience feeling satisfied.
However, most sex toys may be degraded by sand, saltwater and chlorine, and are not rated for deep-sea diving or extremely deep water. If you're playing in the shower or bath, you'll have no problem, but if you're hoping to fuck on the bottom of your 10-foot pool, you might consider foregoing the sex toys for that adventure.
4. Say Hello to New Sex Positions for in the Water!
Especially if you're having sex in a body of water, it can create a weightlessness that isn't possible on dry land. This means that you and your partner can explore a much larger variety of sex positions. Your partner doesn't need to be able to lift your entire body weight anymore; they only need to be able to lift a fraction of it.
This opens up a whole new world of gravity-defying standing sex positions that may have been entire inaccessible to you before!

5. Don't Forget Safer Sex Too!
Do you know where most of us don't keep our safer sex equipment? In the bathtub or next to a pond. This means that everything you use to keep your sex as safe as possible needs to be planned ahead.
Take your condoms, dental dams, sponge, menstrual disc, or lube with you when you go out to play in the water (wherever that water happens to be!). If you want to keep things as spontaneous as possible, have a "go bag" with everything already packed. You can just grab it and know you'll be ready!
6. Remember The Water Might Not Be Fine
Where, exactly, are you having sex in the water? If it's the shower or bath, you're fine, but if you're hoping to enjoy some passionate play in a pool, hot tub, or natural body of water (like the ocean or river!), the water isn't probably something that you'll want to slide inside of the body.
Hot tubs, for example, feature chemicals that help keep the water as free of germs and bacteria as possible. Those same chemicals that are harsh on germs and bacteria can be harsh on the "good" bacteria found in the vaginal canal or anus. Think of it like douching with some really, really harsh chemicals - and you can see the problem.
Oceans and other bodies of water, on the other hand, are most definitely filled with bacteria - and may contain parasites too. Again, these substances aren't particularly friendly to the inside of the body - and can cause infections or further problems.
If you're hoping to enjoy sex in water that isn't designed for bathing or drinking, consider keeping the penetrative aspects to a minimum. Instead, consider penetration-free pleasure with a focus on mutual pleasure (and potential orgasms!) without penetration. A good soaping and shower can be a good idea before choosing to move on to penetration - to avoid any of these damaging water buddies making it inside of the body.

7. Your Water May Be Finite
It's a universal experience: you're enjoying the best hot shower of your life - and then the hot water runs out, and it's now terrible.
The same happens during sex in the water, too. Unless you are at a hotel or have an endless hot water heater, if you're having shower sex, you WILL run out of hot water - so you're on the clock to ensure you finish whatever you want before that happens.
If you're in a bathtub full of water, that water temperature is going to ever-so-slowly cool down, so make sure you're ready to top-up your water or end things early. (I recommend starting your bathwater at warmer-than-wanted to help reduce this.)
