Sex talk Ask Dr Angela: How do I convince her to try out bathtub sex?


Open-minded and practical, Dr Angela Brokmann has answered the nation's sex problems for 18 years. Here, she answers you dilemmas.

Dear Angela,

My wife (39) and I (40) just got a brand new bathroom for our house, with an extra large bathtub. I picked that huge tub with bathtub-sex on my mind. But every time I mention it my wife comes up with some lame excuse and then we end up in the bedroom instead. I tried to talk my wife into it; I even told her how much fun I used to have with my first wife. But she only gets grumpy and refuses to listen to me. What can I do?


There is one thing that you should NOT do, and that's mentioning your ex. Your wife doesn't want to hear how much fun you had with her predecessor. If you'd like to make love in your new tub, don't ask your wife beforehand.

Try the romantic approach instead: light some nice scented candles, get a bubble bath going, and open a bottle of bubbly. Then invite your wife to a relaxing soak. Soap off her arms, shoulders, chest and back before you slowly move your hands downwards. With a bit of luck, you'll manage to seduce her.
