If you've been with your partner for a long time, you might want to break some of the monotony (and we don't blame you!) New positions and new locations can reignite the passion in your relationship. However, a desire for new things - and each other - can lead you to want to do it in places that are not exactly ideal. Is it dangerous to make love in the water? A doctor answers...
Having sex in the pool, lake, or ocean can be dangerous
Having sex in the water may be common to some and a sexual fantasy to others, but before you jump into the water, doctors warn that it can lead to health problems.
Poliani Prizmic, a gynecologist and obstetrician at Red D'Or São Luiz Hospital, told VIX that having sex in the water is risky because the penetration movement pumps water into the vaginal canal.
What happens when you have sex in the water
When this happens, water may pass through the cervix and reach the tubes, causing pain immediately after the act and causing inflammation in the region. "If this happens, the woman probably feels pain after the act, and she should seek a gynecologist immediately," Poliani said. In the case of anal sex, the risk is that the water reaches the intestine.
In addition, there is the possibility that the water is contaminated, or that chlorine causes an allergic reaction in the mucous membranes, causing more problems. According to the doctor, the pressure of water can cause injuries to the wall of the vagina, hurting and facilitating infections.
