Is it cool if I never go swimming with you? What are you, a shark? And it depends on what you mean by “cool.” If you mean “walking down the hallway of your high school in slow motion and high fiving all the popular kids while ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ plays,” then sure. If you mean “is pool sex OK with the 10 or so screaming/drowning toddlers that are swimming around me?” Not so much.

Public pool sex isn’t really that cool, I have to say. Its only redeeming quality is the sex-in-public factor, which is hot, but listen up and listen good. Is a public pool, aka a bath-house for children and disease, really where you want your sex-in-public experiment to occur?

OK, now let’s talk about what this means for your reproductive system. Pool water is mainly chemicals, bacteria and human detritus with a little water thrown in there for posterity. If this fluid cesspool were to make its way into any micro-tears in your vagina or on your dick, you could get a gnarly infection. If it were to creep up your urethra into your bladder ... BAM, infection. Infection, understand? Not to mention that water completely dissolves the natural lubricant that vaginas produce, so pool sex is likely to dry you out even though your pussy is covered in the aforementioned unholy water.

But yeah, go ahead and try it!
