Remember when you discovered that your showerhead or running bathwater felt wayyyy too good when you were younger? You discovered water play and how to masturbate with water, babe.
Water play may be one of the original staples in exploring our masturbation journeys, yet one of the lost arts as we evolve. While I am a lover of pleasure products, I always held a soft spot for water play.
With so many benefits, here’s why water play is a no-brainer and why you should masturbate with water…
Flow Of Water “Feels Like Oral“
There’s something so incredibly unique about the feeling – and experience – of water rushing over your vulva. Unlike traditional sex toys, masturbating with water methods like the bathtub technique offers hands-free bliss, babe. Turn on the water, lay back, and lose yourself in your fantasies and pleasure as the water rushes onto you!
Water is wild. It flows how it wants, moves how it wants, and gives you an entirely new take on sensations – similar to oral sex. While I’ve tried PLENTY of sex toys that claim to mimic oral sex, they just weren’t what I was looking for. The (usually) hard flickering and buzzing just don’t cut it for this girl. Water play, however, is my jam. This gentle yet intense form of stimulation comes as a warmth, wetness, and rhythmic sensation that many users of the WaterSlyde confide (with a smile) was “the best oral sex I’ve ever had.”
What if we told you we can give you the cleanest orgasms? While some sex toys are made of the absolute highest grade material and are body-safe, they aren’t always hygienic. Whether they are hard to sterilize or we don’t wash them well, they can harbor dangerous bacterias that can irritate vulvas and vaginas.
We love our WaterSlyde since good ol’ H2O is the cleanest orgasm you will ever have. There is zero contact with any products, and water is harmless. Not only is it a plus for those sensitive to certain materials, but it’s a great way to freshen up!
While taking time to masturbate with water can stimulate us, it can also give us the quick, refreshing burst we want. Think post-gym, during your menstrual cycle, or before getting it on. I mean, if it only felt this good to wash the dishes, my sink would be clean AF!
The Ultimate (Discreet) Getaway
Half the hassle of having a sex toy or pleasure product is sometimes feeling like you need to hide it from your parents, children, roommate, guests, or whoever may walk past your nightstand. The bathroom is your sacred space where your privacy is respected. Plus, it doesn’t look or sound like a sex toy – it’s just a part of your everyday bath routine!
Do you hide your shower head? Nope. Let your WaterSlyde shine, babe.
Sexplore Your Pleasure With Water
Water play may be an oldie, but it’s a goodie when it comes to exploring your pleasure and sensations. Stuck in a rut masturbating with the same toy, position, or routine with yourself or your partner? Masturbate with water and let the water take you on an experience. See what magic unfolds, and bring your partner along, too!
And, NO, waterplay, or toys like the WaterSlyde, are not a substitute to your partner! It’s a lovely, intimate addition to foreplay. Think playing in the tub together, or warming up for them — the perfect bathroom-to-bedroom activity.
Water Play For Those With Disability & Trauma
Inclusivity was paramount to me when designing the WaterSlyde, as I wanted to make water play and masturbation available to all. I’m overwhelmed by the response and love from folks who have a disability as well as those who have experienced physical and/or psychological traumas. Sexual stimulation can be hard to attain, scary, and new; but when you masturbate with water, you receive a gentle reintroduction to sensation and pleasure on your own terms.
Here is an anonymous review Lovability received from a WaterSlyde user, a transgender woman who’d had gender-affirming surgery and was struggling with rediscovering pleasure.
“My surgeon did not have a lot of experience and left my clitoris permanently damaged. It’s been about four years since my surgery, and stimulation can still be painful. I’ve been desperate to find a way to masturbate comfortably and I found an online article about masturbating with water. I tried using the running water in the bathtub and it felt amazing. I received the pressure I needed with the light touch of water. So I began looking for ways to make it even better, and that’s when I found your product! Thank you for making this product. From the bottom of my heart and for women like me, those who have had their genitals damaged via surgery or other means.”
Rainey of @sexplained.med shared her thoughts about how water play can help victims of sexual trauma.
“A lot of victims of sexual trauma really struggle with getting into a sexual headspace. It can be really really hard to relearn that sexual behavior. The WaterSlyde has been reported to be very helpful to victims of sexual trauma to get readjusted to the sensation of the clitoris, vulva, and genital arousal in general.”
Why masturbate with water? Water play is the gift that keeps on giving! My love for water play led me to the creation of the WaterSlyde, an idea I had at 15 years old. I thought “How do I make classic water play accessible, enjoyable, and a full, self-care experience?” With guidance from my creativity, inspiration from my gyno, and the approval of my rabbi (yeah, I consulted my rabbi), I created a pleasure product that uses water!
I invite you to explore water play, and use the WaterSlyde for a unique, pleasure ride of your own!
