From books like “The Kinky Chronicles”, to films like Fifty Shades of Grey, kinky eroticism, is increasingly showing up in mainstream media and according to sex experts, it’s catching on. The rise of mainstream-friendly kink is inspiring couples to explore their dirtiest desires and darkest fantasies, no matter how ‘outside the norm’ they may be. One of the kinks seeing a spike amongst couples is golden showers. For the uninitiated:

A golden shower is the act of urinating on another person.

If you’re interested in pee play, or just curious about what the deal is, here’s what you need to know.

The Appeal

If you asked 50 different people about the appeal of golden showers, you might just get 50 different answers. Everyone has a unique reason for their interest in what people in the fetish lifestyle call watersports. In general, people get sexual gratification from golden showers. Whether it be the idea that it’s taboo, the wetness, or, the nature of it being a bodily fluid. Additionally, it’s used as a form of humiliation between couples involved in a power exchange, much like the dominant and submissive roles depicted in the literature of the Marquis de Sade such as Justine or The Misfortunes of Virtue.

Is it Safe/Sanitary?

As with any bodily fluid, participating in golden showers is something to be treated with safety and sanitary concerns in mind. While HIV and most other STDs are not transmitted through urine, other diseases, such as hepatitis are. If you have an open wound, or ingest urine from someone who has hepatitis, you run the risk of infection. For those who don’t know, hepatitis is a virus that causes chronic liver inflammation. At later stages it can lead to cirrhosis of the liver. In fact, most liver transplants in the United States are performed due to cirrhosis of the liver caused by hepatitis.

Introducing the Idea to a Partner

Expressing your fantasies to a partner isn’t always easy. Especially if those desires are considered taboo by social standards. Ask your partner about his, or her deepest fantasies. It’s easier to bring up the topic of golden showers if you’re both openly communicating about your desires. If your partner is open to it, try it out in the shower. That way there’s no mess to clean up, and let’s face it, most of us pee in the shower anyway. The most important aspect is that you have your partner’s consent. As with any kink, fetish, or alternative lifestyle like BDSM, you should take things slow and learn about it first.
