But in real life, a shower just seems the most unlikely and, frankly, the most cruel place around the house to try anything sexual. They're confined spaces with slippery floors and metal stuff sticking out all over the place! You have to keep trading places under the warm water to avoid freezing. Conversation is pretty much out of the question. Accidental scalding can't be ruled out. And afterward, there you are, in a shower stall, not knowing for sure whether it's best to go ahead and wash your hair or just hop out and grab towels, take turns with the hair dryer, etc. Should you brush your teeth? In fiction, I don't think they ever do.
I've tried to figure out the shower fascination, and all I can come up with is that maybe it echoes back to our earliest ancestors. Maybe mating beneath a waterfall had some survival advantage, like all the noise kept predators from hearing and the rushing water kept down the scent. I really don't know. But when you think about it along those lines, it makes a lot of sense that Niagara Falls is synonymous with honeymooning, now doesn't it?
Well, I can promise I'll never write a serious shower sex scene. In my next novel, I do have a humorous shower scene involving two women who are attracted to each other, but it's not a sex scene. Really isn't.
Now that I've dissed whole concept, if anybody wants to show me how wrong I am and point out their favorite awesome shower scene, that'd be cool.
