You shower every single day—why not take advantage of all that naked alone time with a little shower masturbation? Yep, you heard me: shower masturbation.

But much like regular ol’ shower sex, shower masturbation could feel a little awkward at first: You’ve gotta learn your angles, find your fave toys, and so on. Don’t worry, it’s worth making the effort. Shower masturbation is the best way to guarantee uninterrupted solo time, and it's legit impossible to make a mess!

To get you started, here are some super sexy ideas to help you steam things up in the shower.

1. Play with the water temperature

Ever heard of temperature play? Try it in the shower. “Run a warm shower, and press your frontside against the cold wall while touching yourself,” says Astroglide resident sexologist Jessica O'Reilly, PhD, author of Hot Sex Tips, Tricks and Licks. “Let your clitoris respond to the sensations of the cool wall and the hot water in succession.”

2. Get your grind on

“Sit back against the side of the tub, and slather your hand in a silicone lube like Astroglide X Silicone Liquid,” suggests O'Reilly. “Use a little more than you normally would, as you don't have to worry about the mess. Press all five fingers along the length of your lips, and pull up an inch or two before sliding back down. Press against your hand with your hips, allowing your fingers to increase the speed of grinding as your arousal heightens.”

3. Invest in a suction dildo

This is a shower toy that has a suction cup on the back of it that you can attach to the wall or the surface of the tub. “You can adjust the angle, height, and, of course, the rhythm and depth to suit your needs,” says O'Reilly.

Try the Vibrating Slim Jelly Dong with Suction Cup ($18, for added electronic fun or the Avant Hot 'n' Cool Dildo ($62, "This fun dildo has a very strong suction cup that will still to the bottom of the tub or shower," says Taylor Sparks, sex expert and founder of Organic Loven.

4. Two words: waterproof vibrator

Speaking of toys you can take in the shower, O'Reilly recommends the We-Vibe Touch ($99,, which has a wide, flat surface that’s great for getting you all hot and bothered. Meanwhile, Sparks loves the Le Wand Chrome Grand Bullet ($100, "This amazing, gorgeous waterproof vibe has 11 vibration modes and 4 intensity levels, plus it's whisper quiet."

5. Try the “thumbs up”

“Slather your thumb in silicone lube, and twirl it inside of you as the water streams down over your nipples and clitoris,” says O'Reilly. “The shallow penetration may be exactly what your body needs to take it over the top.”

6. Read a sexy story

No, you can’t take your laptop in the shower with you, but you can go old school with your erotica. “Print out a sexy story, or grab a hot book before you hop into the shower,” says O'Reilly (you can hold it just outside the shower). “When the mood strikes you, you can drop the book and get yourself off using your fingers and fantasy alone.”

7. Do your kegels

O'Reilly says some women find that simply contracting their pelvic floor muscles for a minute or two gets them all riled up on account of the increased circulation to your lady parts. “If you find your body getting turned on by this sexercise routine, let your mind follow suit as it wanders into an escapist fantasy,” she says.

8. Take a seat

Just like during sex, it helps to change positions. While some women find that standing is a fun way to mix it up, you may have more luck orgasming from a more relaxed, seated position. Try sitting on the base of the bath or on the side of the tub. Hey, there’s no wrong way to masturbate!

9. Turn the lights down low

It helps to ~set the mood~ whether you’re having traditional sex or masturbating, and the same is true for shower masturbation. If your bathroom has those not-so-sexy overhead lights, try lighting a few candles or only turning on one light for a little more romance. You deserve it.

10. Try taking a bath

The only thing hotter than shower masturbation? Bath masturbation. If you’re the type who reallyyyyy needs to relax in order to get in the mood, a bath might be just what you need to take your O to the next level. Just lock the door.
