Nothing dials up the romance like a change of scenery, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to leave home. Your next sexy getaway is as close as your bathroom shower. Read on for a look at the good, the bad, and the slippery — and 12 tips for safe and steamy couples’ showering.
DO: Prep the bathroom for romance.
Before you get naked, it’s time to bring sexy back … to your bathroom. If sexy was ever there to begin with, that is. Prep your lavatory for some lovin’ by cleaning the shower and putting away any shampoos, soap, and other items you’re not going to use with your partner. Because nothing kills the mood like accidentally sitting on your razor during a sensual scrub down. Then stock the shower with goodies to pamper your partner — soft wash cloths, a loofah, invigorating body wash and shampoo — and plenty of extra towels. For safety’s sake, you might also want to add a non-slip mat to the shower floor. Slipping and sliding have their place; this is not it.
Now consider the rest of the bathroom’s ambience. Fluorescent lighting and bathroom smells (yes, we went there) aren’t typically considered aphrodisiacs. So tidy up, play soft music and light some scented candles. And if privacy’s an issue, make sure the door locks — or you’re setting yourself up for a major buzz kill.
