Playing With: Shower of Love

Basic Trope: A couple showers together.
  • Straight: Alice and Bob take a shower together.
  • Exaggerated: Alice and Bob actually have sex in the shower.
  • Downplayed: They share the bathroom some other way, e.g. Bob is shaving while Alice is in the shower.
  • Justified:
    • Alice and Bob are a very intimate couple who maybe want to try something new during sex.
    • On a pragmatic level, showering together (theoretically, at least!) saves time and water.
  • Inverted: Alice and Bob shower separately.
  • Subverted:
    • Alice gets in the shower alone, while Bob brushes his teeth.
    • Alice and Bob shower together, but don't have sex.
  • Double Subverted:
  • Parodied:
    • Alice and Bob use the soap as not only a lubricant, but an actual sex toy.
    • Alice and Bob get into a shower stall... And literally sing together.
    • Alice and Bob hosts a morning TV show together — in their shower — which leads to sex.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Alice and Bob don't shower at all.
  • Enforced: A writer wants Alice and Bob's relationship to be Hotter and Sexier.
  • Lampshaded: "Save water, shower with me, Alice!"
  • Invoked: Alice and Bob are Insatiable Newlyweds on their honeymoon.
  • Exploited: Charlie robs them blind while they are blind to everything but each other's beautiful nude bodies.
  • Defied:
    • Alice and Bob don't find the shower a sexy setting (see "Deconstructed"), so they have sex either before or after they shower.
    • Alice and Bob don't find showering together appealing.
  • Discussed: "Wouldn't it be hot if we showered together and got to kissing, cuddling, squeegeeing, nosing, loving, et cetera, et cetera?"
  • Conversed: ???
  • Deconstructed: Reality Ensues — shower sex isn't without its challenges: it can be slippery, and water tends to wash away the body's natural lubricants.
  • Reconstructed: Alice and Bob can shower together, but save the actual sex for when they get out, or they can find a position to use that won't result in slipping and falling and hurting themselves on hard surfaces, and use lubricants (usually silicone-based) that are water-sex friendly.
  • Played For Laughs: Alice and Bob can't get into a good position in the cramped stall shower, slip on the soap, et cetera.
  • Played For Drama:
    • Alice and Bob are having makeup sex.
    • One of them dies because of the hazards that come with having sex in the shower. The other comes down with Survivor Guilt.
    • Alice and Bob break up, and they are so depressed about losing their love, they both go home to masturbate in the shower.
