Today is February 5th, 2019. AKA National Shower with a Friend Day.

Back in the 70’s, my parents had a small piece of cheesy wall “art” that said, “Conserve Water: Bathe With A Friend”. Little did they know that the sentiment would have its own holiday in the future. #ProgressiveNonHippies

Given that today is *the day*, take this opportunity to text your love some sexy, seductive ideas for how you will celebrate this tonight!

Showering with a friend can be fun and informative. “Informative?” Sure, if you remove the pressure of having sex, this can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. (Pressure to perform sucks, y’all). Use this to your advantage and allow yourself to feel cleansed and connected. Take turns being under the shower head and soaping each other up. You could even try to generate suds by rubbing your bodies together – front/front, front/back, back/back, etc. It’s good clean fun.

And you don’t HAVE to limit yourselves to a shower; you could also bathe. Up to you.

I like to play safely and with that in mind, here’s something you can buy that isn’t a toy so much as a safety feature – an essential quality when playing around water, slippery lubes, and tile surfaces. Handles you can place where YOU want them so you can get the leverage you need.  I’ve had one of these for a couple years now and they’re great!

(In terms of gear, I DO have a favorite toy for the bath. It’s a toy called “Bubble Love” …but it may be out of production. *GASP* It was like a portable jacuzzi jet. lol. See if you can get your hands on one. Click here for more of my favorite toys.)

Showering together can be good for the environment (as long as you’re not in there running the water for forever). It can also be good to help you and your partner reconnect.

Try it out, and lemme know how it goes. Happy celebrating!
