Make a splash in the bedroom: 6 benefits of waterproof sex toys and sextech


5

In 2023, water is no longer the mortal enemy of electronics. With the advancement of technology, most smartphones are now fully submergible , making us wonder if our beloved sex tech could have similar protection. After all, when it comes to pleasure devices that may find themselves in slippery situations, it’s only natural to hope for some water resistance.

In this article, we will delve into the world of waterproof sex tech, exploring the different types available, how they are made to be water-safe, and the numerous benefits they bring to your intimate experiences – whether in the bedroom… or the bathroom.

Levels of waterproofing

When it comes to waterproof sex toys, there are three common types you may encounter: 

  • Water-resistant/Shower-proof
    These toys offer some level of protection against water exposure. However, caution is still necessary as too much water can still lead to damage. Here’s a (not so) fun Reddit thread of what can happen when it goes wrong.
  • Toy Only/Non-Waterproof Remote
    In cases where the sex tech device’s remote is not waterproof, it is important to learn how to manually control the device using the buttons on the toy itself in order to enjoy its waterproof benefits.
  • Fully Waterproof
    The holy grail of waterproof sex tech! These devices are designed to be fully submergible and safe for use in water. With these toys, you have the freedom to explore without worry. Here are some waterproof devices you can enjoy.

How are sex toys made to be waterproof?

Simply by using waterproof materials, such as 100% body-safe silicone, as well as ensuring the internal electrics are fully sealed, and incorporating waterproof charging ports, such as magnetic charging. Obviously, any corded sex toys you’ll want to keep away from water; stick to cordless and sealed devices for safety.

Make sure to read the ingredients and instruction manual, as well as expert reviews to ensure you know how much water your device is capable of handling.

6 benefits of waterproof sex toys

#1 Lubrication

This is probably why the majority of sex tech is at least water-resistant. Our natural genital lubrication and using artificial lube means your toys are bound to get a little bit wet! Make sure you are using the correct lube with your toy (e.g. water-based lube with silicone-based toys).

#2 Shower play

Bringing toys into the shower can make washing extra fun! Using them on yourself or with a partner – as shower sex can be a little hazardous, waterproof sex tech can allow for a much safer sexy time reducing the risk of dangerous sex positions.

#3 Bath fun

Planning on having a relaxing romantic night in? Fill your bath, light some candles, and grab your favorite waterproof vibe. Make sure the toy you’re using is definitely fully waterproof and submersible! You don’t want any nasty electric shocks or

#4 Squirting

According to a 2013 study,10-54% of people with vulvas have experienced some form of squirting or ejaculation – a specific fluid that comes out of the urethra (Pastor Z. Female ejaculation orgasm vs. coital incontinence: a systematic review. J Sex Med. 2013 Jul;10(7):1682-91).

From a trickle to a gush, it’s worth getting extra protective bedding and making sure your tech can handle the wet!

#5 Water sports

Things are getting a little kinky now. If you’re into golden showers or other forms of water sports, waterproof sex tech is essential.

#6 Cleaning

Fully waterproof sex tech is way easier to clean! Just run it under warm water with soap, you can even let it soak for a hot minute or two. However, if the toy is not fully waterproof, it’s a good idea to invest in a toy cleaner to be able to wipe it clean.

PSA: Clean your toys before and after use to stop the spread of bacteria and infections, and in between vaginal and anal use!

When it comes to choosing a sex toy to enhance your experiences, its water resistance capabilities should be near the top of your list of considerations. By opting for waterproof sex tech, you open up a world of possibilities. From enjoying lubrication without worry to exploring adventurous shower play or indulging in relaxing bath-time pleasure, the benefits are numerous.

So, next time you’re looking for a sex toy to spice up your slippery sex life, ask yourself: “Will I want it to be water-resistant, partially waterproof, fully waterproof?” before handing over any cash.
