EWING, N.J., May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Looking to try something new in the bedroom? A new survey from the maker of Trojan™ Lubricants shows that more than half of Americans in a relationship say that shower sex would spice up their love life. The newly released survey, conducted by Harris Poll, also revealed that fantasizing about celebrity crushes is top of mind when keeping things hot beyond the bedroom. American women ranked Channing Tatum as the top male celebrity they would want to have shower sex with. Among female celebrities, Jennifer Lawrence is not only hot at the box office, she also ranked as the top female celebrity men would want to have shower sex with, followed by Sophia Vergara. Also, sixty-two percent of Americans would rather have sex in the shower than in an airplane bathroom – move over Mile High Club!
A Shower That's Pleasure Packed
According to existing data from Indiana University's Center for Sexual Health Promotion, 82 percent of lubricant users believe lubricant enhances pleasure and nearly half agree lubricant makes it easier to have an orgasm1. The new Trojan™ Lubricants survey found half of Americans agree lubricant would make sex in water more pleasurable, and that lube is the No. 1 essential item when planning to have sex in the shower. To help couples enjoy pleasurable sex in the shower every time, the maker of Trojan™ Lubricants recently launched their latest pleasure-enhancing innovation, Trojan™ Riviera™ Lubricant. The new lubricant delivers long-lasting lubrication specifically designed for use in water, making shower sex more enjoyable.

"We're excited to add Trojan™ Riviera™ Lubricant to our line of high-quality lubricants to increase intimacy between couples and help them fulfill their fantasies."
Couples Get in on the Action
Shower sex is becoming a go-to move for couples looking to heat things up. According to Market View Research, 1 in 3 adults have had sex in the water2, but that doesn't compare to those who want to. The new Trojan™ Lubricants survey found that 60 percent of Americans would be interested in having sex in the shower with a partner, while men outpaced women, 73 percent to 48 percent, respectively. The study also revealed that a vast majority (81 percent) of Americans who have had sex in the shower with a partner want to do it again, putting a new twist to the phrase "rinse and repeat."
