Lovemaking 101

Fun in the Hot Tub

by Brettani Shannon

Fun in the Hot Tub
Hot tubbing is a pretty routine happening with lovers because the warm water and lack of clothing easily fosters a sensual situation. Until you do things Lovingyou.com's way though, you've never really heated things up. Use the tips below to make a common experience super spicy.

Sensual Essentials:

Romantic Lighting
Candles, soft lamps, or twinkle lights are an important addition to the romantic ambiance. It's also romantic to watch the sun rise or set in the hot tub, and the lighting is provided for you!

Cold bottles of water, champagne, exotic fruit juices over ice, blended drinks, and cocktails are great hot-tubbing drinks. Beer isn't usually a good choice because it gets too warm too fast. Cold snacks are very refreshing as well. Grapes, carrot sticks, and popsicles are some good suggestions.

While many experts recommend using water-based lubricants, there is a time and a place for non-water based ones. Hot-tubbing is one of them. Use it for all sorts of sensual play (including massage) and it won't rinse off!

Especially for nighttime tubbing, music is another way to further enhance the mood. Make a playlist that is conducive to the mood you hope to achieve.

Things To Do:

Relaxing Rub
Massage away your lover's tension in their shoulders, neck, head, face, back, chest, legs, hands and feet. You can use non-water-based lubricant instead of massage oil to reduce the amount of residue in your tub.

Horizontal Play
Foreplay is great in the water because your bodies are slippery and light, you can't see very well under the water line, and everyone looks sexy when they're wet. However, it is best for your vital parts to be out of the water for intercourse because it is common for a woman to get infections from doing it under water (besides the possible germs, it is something having to do with the water going where it shouldn't having an adverse effect on her delicate lining). Get creative with positioning. Visualize yourself poised over the side, on the ledge, or on his lap. Imagine yourself facing forward and backward in all of those positions.

Fun And Games
There is a great game for hot tub play called "Bathtub Love." There are floating "bubbles" filled with hilarious sensual suggestions. Some are fairly tame while others are pretty wild. A few will have your sides busting at the very thought! Another idea is to use bathtub finger paints or chocolate paints with your lover as the canvas (just make sure you make a clean-up plan beforehand).

Water Play
Bring him to his knees with a super hot water show. Men love to watch water glide over women's skin. Some ways to do it in the tub may be: pouring water from the crown of your head down your back, drizzling it slowly from your chest down your body or squeezing it from a sponge wherever you want him to touch you. Watch your guy melt as the water slips over your curves. Wake him from his trance with a little playful splashing before getting onto other activities. The show could be a spontaneous 30 second tease or a planned-out performance. Either way, it is sure to be a hit with your lover.

Hot Tub Surprise
Over the past month, my fiancé and I have not had much time to spend together because he started a new job with new hours and I'm usually asleep by the time he gets home. Our weekends are usually filled with wedding planning. But one night, I surprised him when he got home from work. That night he came home to a dark apartment, as usual. He walked into our bedroom to check on me like he always does, but I wasn't asleep. I wasn't even in the room, but I'd left something for him. Sitting on the bed were a pair of his swim shorts, a pair of flip flops, a towel, and a picture I took of myself in the hot tub. He got the hint, and he quickly changed clothes and made his way out to the deck. Once outside, he found me lounging in the hot tub with a bottle of wine and some fresh fruit. The look on his face was priceless! It was a great night, and really let us connect with each other.

Go to your hot tub, set candles all around the edges, and just steam together in each others' arms.

An Inexpensive Hot Tub
I live in Michigan and it's always so cold in the winter that I want to find some way to keep warm. One night I had the brilliant idea of using the bath tub as a hot tub. My boyfriend and I both put on our swim suits and climbed in. We've since bought waterproof playing cards for our "hot tubbing" experiences. There may not be a lot of room, but it's a lot of fun. (I discovered Target sells bubble bath finger paint in the section with the regular bubble bath.)

Caesar's Spa
Do you have an in-ground hot tub? If so, this is a good idea for you to try. In Ancient Rome, people relaxed in spas nude. What an opportunity to treat someone like a king/queen, plus one of you is already without clothes! This could lead to some pleasant rewards from your sweetheart! Find a place to buy or rent some Roman-style columns. Be sure to get one short column, about waist height. Set up the columns around the hot tub, putting the shorter one inside the circle of the bigger ones. Buy a toga at a costume shop (or you could improvise a toga with a plain white bedsheet). Set up a silver tray with finger food like grapes, strawberries, cherries, and mangos, as well as glasses of fruity wine. Put on some slow classical music to set the mood. Set the tray of food on the shorter column and cover it with a towel. As soon as your lover walks through the door, start removing their clothes, saying nothing until they ask what you are doing. Tell them (your name here) ordered that you are to be their servant today. If they use your name, tell them, "I'm not that person," and give them a fake name. Once they are fully undressed, lead them arm-in-arm to the "Spa". Feed them from the tray, and when they've had enough, set the tray aside, and ask, "What would you have me do now, Master?" By now, your sweetheart should have one thing on their mind! Let things progress naturally from there, and enjoy your night in Caesar's Spa!
