are there any dangers relating to having sexual intercourse underwater in a bath using just plain water no soap or bubble bath?

User avatar Hello,under water sex may be something akin to douching, leading change of bacterial flora of the vagina.There are some proof that douching can lead to an increased incidence of bacterial vaginosis.Apart from that unprotected sex in water carry the same risks as above and the risk of slipping a condom seems more of a reality leading to fear of aquiring a STD.Moist tissues are the favorite areas where Hpv virus can grow and there could be a hypthetical chance of favourable field for transmission.All is fine provided you take precautions for a protected sex in or out of water.Ok?

User avatar Hi angelprincess21,
Agree in full with Dr.Jagesh. Just one comment however (in lighter vein!)...
How deep underwater?? Deeper underwater, greater are the theoretical chances of water entering the urogenital system!! Beware of graduating to deeper waters!!
Cheers!!
