What are Golden Showers and Why Do People Like Them?

0 Comments 22 October 2012

Golden Showers, (correct technical term ‘Urolagnia’), are also known as ‘Water Sports’ among aficionados of this unusual, but not unheard of sexual practice. They consist of the sexual desire (or fetish), to either pee on or be peed on; and many people in the world over desire this as part of the sexual repertoire.

Enjoying Golden Showers is not something that a lot of people would admit to but it has been around for a long time, and quite often forms part of a BDSM scene; however, it is still a ‘taboo’ subject to many people, and discussion of this still has a stigma attached to it; I would therefore like to dispel some of the myths surrounding this topic.

There are slightly differing forms of this desire, and they can be classed as follows:

  1. Desperation: This consists of either holding your own urine until you are desperate to pee, or encouraging someone else to hold their pee. Arousal can even be triggered by the expression on someone’s face when they need to pee, or can come from the sensation of having a full bladder.
  2. Voyeurism: Here the arousal comes from watching someone else pee, usually unknown by that person; however, when this kind of play is consensual, the person peeing would know that they were being watched.
  3. Clothes wetting: Here the arousal comes from the warm sensation of peeing inside your clothing, and can be felt as a comforting thing. Some people who like this can also be turned on by smelling someone else’s clothing after they have peed in it.
  4. Exhibitionism: Here the person can arrange to pee themselves in a public place, like a park for instance, where they know there is a chance that strangers could be watching. (Be warned, that this could lead to arrest of course.)
  5. Pussing:  This is a British term, and relates to smuggling your partner into the toilets at a public place, such as a pub, and watching them pee, knowing that someone else could walk in and be outraged that they are in the wrong sex toilet.
  6. Within BDSM: This is one of those primal and animalistic urges enjoyed by many within this community, and is often used as a form of control over the submissive party, as it would usually be the dominant one that would be in charge of the situation.

What is there to enjoy about Golden Showers?

As mentioned above, there are different reasons that people enjoy this kind of play; however there is no specific answer as to exactly why people enjoy it. Some people may think that it’s sick or weird, but it isn’t. As with everything we have discussed about various forms of play, as long as it’s consensual, then there is no harm to it. Some people might get a bit turned off by the thought of somehow ‘dirtying’ the bed; the answers to that are either place some think towels on the bed first, or purchase a rubber sheet from your on-line sex store; if you want to try this, then there is no reason not to. If you are still feeling a bit ‘strange’ about doing it on the bed, then try it in the shower or bath; that feels a lot more ‘normal’ for some people, as the bathroom is the room we associate with pee anyway.

The very ‘naughtiness’ or the fact that it can be known as ‘perverted’ are the very things that turn some of us on; remember when you were told as a child not to do something? Most times what would you do? Exactly…..if it’s naughty, lots of people want to try it.

Is it dangerous to swallow pee?

Many people get turned on by the idea of peeing on someone’s face or in their open mouth, but are scared to in case there are any health risks associated with it. In general, urine is very sterile, (especially your own), and actually gets used in survival training to act as a coolant to the body. There would only be an issue with drinking it if the person peeing had some kind of infection.

A question that follows on from that is usually ‘What does it taste like?’ This can vary dependant on what has been eaten or drunk the previous day; if the person is well-hydrated, it shouldn’t really taste of anything. That would be different if asparagus had been eaten the day before, as that can make it taste strong and bitter, as can the first pee of the day.

In conclusion, CONSENSUAL is the key word; as long as both agree, there is no problem with having or enjoying Golden Showers, so carry on and let it flow!
