Poll: Do You Enjoy Showering With A Partner?

In an interview with People magazine, “Twilight” actress Nikki Reed suggests that in order to conserve water, you bathe with your partner:

“To be environmentally conscious,” she said, “I think there’s things we can all do to make a difference…You can shower with another person…two people, one shower, less water, it’s pretty simple.”

Fair enough, and her math certainly works out. But showering with another person, I’ve found, isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

First of all, there’s the issue of who gets to stand under the stream. Someone is always left about halfway out of the water, which, unless you’ve completely steamed up the bathroom already, means that one of you is always freezing.

Second of all, shower sex? Overrated. There’s precious little to hold onto in a shower, and surely I’m not the only person who has accidentally pulled down a shower curtain rod whilst trying to maintain my balance as intimacy is occurring. Plus usually someone has to do an uncomfortable squat if there’s going to be penetration involved.

So, I’m not the biggest fan of taking a shower together. I think it’s best left as a solo activity. But! I know other people feel differently, so:

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    No way! The whole water stream shuffle is annoying and you don’t end up saving water coz it takes twice as long to get clean. Unless you have one if those awesome double showers. They are rad.

    It can be fun. I’m a fan of the co-ed shower if it’s recreational– but functional showers are for me only. Mama needs to take care of business.

    It’s honestly one of my favorite things to do with my boyfriend! <3 loovve it. And it's so sexy to watch him all wet and naked

    I like doing it in a totally non-sexual way. It’s kind of like intimate hangout times, plus you can make hilarious non-sexy sexy talk. And squirt water at your partner, and force them to exfoliate your back. It’s seriously awesome fun, you guys!
