For many, having sex in a swimming pool is probably something that they have been hoping to do for a really long time.

However, sex in a swimming pool is perhaps best avoided.

 

Talking to The Sun, Dr Sheila Loanzon, an obstetrician and gynaecologist said there are health risks involved in copulating in pools.

She told Bustle that the chlorinated water in pools can cause pH changes to the vagina which can lead to vaginal infection.

Water is not a good lubricant: Water is not good at lubricating your private parts at all. In fact, it tends to wash away any natural lube and lead to friction.

There is increased risk of pregnancy and STIs:

Being underwater actually increases your risk of STIs and accidental pregnancy, because condoms are unlikely to work. There is much greater chances of the protection breaking away without even realising.

 

Pool chemicals can cause infection: Chlorine and other cleaning agents used in pools can disturb the vagina's balance of good bacteria, leading to thrush, inflammation and bacterial vaginosis.

It is gross: According to recent research from the University of Alberta, the average pool contains around 10 litres of other people's urine.

Not as glamorous as it looks: Swimming pools have hard, slippery surfaces - making it reasonably easy to fall over and smack your head. Concussion during sex is perhaps not the best way to go.
