  • Use water-soluble sex lubricant: Water can actually make the friction of sex painful. Although some think it holds in moisture, it’s actually not enough to lubricate the private parts on its own. So it’s best that you purchase a water-soluble lubricant to avoid discomfort.
  • Condom: Condoms and water don’t usually get along well, as indicated by research in 2018. During penetration, it can dry out and can be irritating for the woman. In addition, if water gets inside, there may be more risk of breakage. But, if you still decide to use one, use plenty of water-soluble lubricant and check from time to time that it’s still in place.
  • Sex toys. To avoid the discomfort that we’ve just mentioned with condoms, or to make the encounter more fun, some couples dare to use sex toys. Of course, it’s essential to verify that they’re waterproof, especially if they use batteries.
