Unlike most people, I keep condoms in my medicine cabinet. Why, you ask? Although I choose to keep my tucked away within an arms reach of the shower, a linen closet or cabinet under the sink would work just as well for storing condoms. Just be sure they are not near any tweezers, scissors, nail files or other sharp objects which could potentially puncture a condom wrapper. It may seem illogical, but water actually dries out the skin, which makes lubricants even more important than they normally are. Like skin, latex also dries out in water.

Naturally, when there are two people in the shower at once, getting bumped into that cold stream of air becomes much more likely. Crank the heating up to ensure the bathroom is cosy throughout. Similarly, shower gel is great for getting nice and clean before a big night out, but it does not make a substitute for lube.
So you want to have sex in the shower. Maybe you live in New York City with three roommates in two bunk beds and this is your only hope for privacy. Maybe your SO has BO and you'd like to avoid that whole conversation. Shower sex to the rescue!
Yes, you can totally get pregnant from shower sex. While a lot of people might think you can't because the water washes everything away, there is nothing about shower sex that protects against pregnancy. Boyle says, "Using soap and water or washing out the ejaculate once you have had intercourse does not prevent you from getting pregnant at all. Sperm are amazingly resilient and can survive and swim for days in the female reproductive system, so don't make the mistake of counting on water or gravity as a contraceptive. Water is not lube and anything else you use in its place can make things much worse.
