Let us lay it out for you before you get wet and wild. When you think of water, you may well think of fun and wet. Pair that up with sex also, hopefully, fun and wet and you have a winning combination, right?
There is a chance that the condom can slip off, and when you combine chemicals and hot water it can affect the durability of the condom. Water can wash away natural lubrication, so consider using a silicone-based, water-resistant lubricant check out Ride Silicone , for example to keep everything slipping and sliding—in a good way.
Public pools and hot tubs contain more chlorine and chemicals that a private pool or hot tub would. The last thing you want is highly chlorinated water rushing in and out of the vagina—hello irritation!
If you really want to get intimate in a public setting, oral sex is a better option. Thinking of a lake or an ocean? The tub or shower can be fun and should present far less exposure to chlorine or organisms. The only thing to keep in mind is that tubs and showers are slippery and sometimes tiny spaces—I would recommend some anti-slip treads in the shower and maybe some light stretching beforehand.
No amount of water is going to abort their mission. Hot tubs and Jacuzzis are hot, so they prevent pregnancy. Some people think that the high temperature in the hot tub will kill sperm. It only takes one to fertilize an egg. You can get pregnant if a man ejaculates into a pool. If a man ejaculates into a pool, it is extremely unlikely to cause a pregnancy.
If you are having sex without a condom, you are at risk for STIs regardless of the setting. Keep it in mind, go forth, and enjoy the new season!
