WTF Are Golden Showers? Your Questions Answered

Fake news or not, this past week, the internet kink shamed Donald Trump for allegedly being into golden showers. Whether or not this is true does not hold a candle to the level of interest people began to have in this fetish. What the hell are golden showers? Is there actual pee involved? And people actually find this hot? Believe it or not, yes, and my deepest apologies if the President Elect has ruined your kink forevermore – what a buzzkill. We all have some real questions about it. If it sounds like something you’d be into or something you get grossed out thinking about, I think we can all agree that recent developments have made us curious. So, let’s get to the bottom of this. No shame!

So, what the hell is a golden shower anyway?

Very simply, it’s playing with urine in a sexy way. Typically, someone pees on another person because it’s pleasurable to them, hence golden showers. Showers because you’re showering them with urine, and golden because… okay, you get the picture. Others get turned on by watching it *ahem* or even seeing someone wet their pants. It’s the umbrella term for incorporating urine during sex.

Wait, what’s so great about peeing on someone?

Golden showers are most commonly used and practiced in BDSM as a form of domination. Others incorporate it into their sex lives because they like the visual of it, in whatever aspect that comes into play. Mostly, we can all relate to the release and pleasurable (not necessarily sexual) feeling of peeing after having to hold it for a very long time. Some people just carry that feeling into the bedroom. Since orgasm can be described as a “pleasurable release,” you have to admit this isn’t a crazy jump to make.

Why would anyone want to get peed on?

The change of temperature can feel nice. The fact that it’s taboo and seems dirty can be enough of an impotence to give it a go and the secrecy itself can be a turn on. Some people straight up like the smell and taste of it. To each their own.

So then are squirting and golden showers the same thing? When a woman ejaculates, isn’t it just pee?

Well, yes and no. Squirting and female ejaculation are different. They can go together, but aren’t always the same thing. Squirting comes from your bladder and there are traces of urea found in the liquid that comes from there, so let’s all put two and two together. Squirting isn’t necessarily under the category of golden showers. Golden showers are specifically all about the urine.

Can you pee by accident during sex? Does that count?

So, you’re worried about guys maybe accidentally peeing inside of you. Well, I looked it up and as it turns out, there’s a muscle that prevents guys from peeing with an erection. Technically, guys should not be able to pee with an erection, but it only happens with extreme effort and concentration. Reddit user, komes_grudes explained it this way“Your prostate is a muscle wrapped around your urethra and your ejaculatory duct. Your prostate can tighten to block the flow of urine and semen. For many man, when they become aroused, their prostate tightens, blocking the flow of urine. Some men have the muscle control to relax their prostate while erect, allowing the flow of urine.”

Which is to say, the answer is no: you won’t be going at it with a guy and have him ejaculate urine into your body instead of semen. Those are different substances that come from different internal organs.

Okay, I think I want to try it. Any tips?

Try it in the shower first: easy clean up and if you don’t like it, you just can scrub it away. Drink a massive amount of water beforehand. Seriously, a gallon would be an appropriate amount. You don’t want the pee smelling funky. If you want to pee on someone, having clear urine comprised of mostly water that smells the least is going to be the best. And as always, with everything, make sure you do it with someone you trust.

There has to be something medically wrong with peeing on someone, right?

Sort of. While urine is technically sterile, it can still contain bacteria if the person urinating is sick. So, make sure you’re healthy and good luck!

Still gross. There must to be another word for it.

And that phrase is “water sports.” New slang! You’re welcome. Also, not gross to everyone! Don’t judge.
