POTW: Shower Sex 2

In Position #24: Shower Sex, Cinnamonsticks described a position where you are facing your husband.  In this sequel, I’ll be talking about a position facing away from your husband.  Please note that in this position you will need a very sturdy shower rod.

For this position the couple is in the shower.  The wife turns to face the side of the tub and the husband stands behind her facing the same way.  The wife lifts one leg and puts it up on the side of the tub, and then reaches up and holds on to the shower rod to keep her stabilized.  (This will only work if you have a very sturdy shower rod.  If your shower rod is a simple tension rod that can fall easily then please do not attempt this.)  The husband is able to enter from behind and hold on to his wife’s hips to help with thrusting while she is holding on (not hanging on, there is a difference) to the shower rod above.  You can see a picture of this position on Cosmo by clicking here.

Pros: You get to enjoy making love while having hot water cascading down you both!

Cons: Couples with large height differences may have a problem with this position.

Throwback Thursdays: Q&A-Yeast Infections and Vaginismus

I was married and moved to a foreign (3rd world) country a couple days later. My husband I were having great sex for about two weeks. I had no pain on the honeymoon (we were both virgins). Then I developed a yeast infection. Since the infection, intercourse (just the initial penetration) has been painful.

Will this go away? I’ve read a bit in your site on how vaginismus can be triggered by a yeast infection. If I’ve developed vaginismus, is it permanant? All the cures/remidies seem to involve going to a doctor and I don’t have the option of going to a doctor here, so I thought I’d write for advice. Thanks!

We received this letter from a woman and wanted to share the answer we provided her with in case it is of help to any other women suffering with this.

If you have access to sour cream or plain yogurt in the country you are in you should use it to treat the yeast infection. I advise that you eat it every day and also treat yourself topically with it. I would also be a good idea use it on your husband too so you don’t pass the infection back and forth. You can use it during sex, as well. Just make sure that if you opt to use yogurt that it is plain because the sugars in the flavored ones will not be helpful at all. They will actually increase the likelihood of having poor female health.

So for those who don’t have the limitations that this writer has of living in a third world country and not having access to common treatments available in developed nations, you might find this information helpful if you deal with frequent yeast infections or a particularly bad one. Just a helpful tip. :)
