Remember the era in 2017 when ‘Golden Shower Trump’ was trending on Twitter that almost unraveled the ‘perverted sexual acts’ of Donald Trump? Not only that, but do you also remember when BuzzFeed revealed a dossier claiming that Russian spies had some juicy personal information regarding the bedroom acts of Trump.

Phrases such as ‘Watersportsgate’, ‘PEETUS’, and ‘Yes we can’ were some of the many which made it to the dossier. Now, whatever was leaked in the dossier, may or may not be the truth, but this has given us the perfect opportunity to talk about urophilia, aka undinism, aka watersports, aka urine play, and aka, golden shower.

So, let’s get into these juicy deets without any further adieus.

What is a golden shower?

Although the term ‘golden showers’ gained public attention when the unverified secrets reports relating to Donald Trump were released, it gained traction in season 3 of ‘Sex and The City when Carrie’s boyfriend had asked her to pee on him.  

As mentioned earlier, a golden shower or watersports are the slang terms used during your sexual intercourse where one partner pees on the other or vice-versa. In this act, one can directly pee on the other or urinate in a container first.

To make things more interesting, this urine play is often observed even in showers, from which you derive the term ‘watersports’. Now, ‘watersports’ is any sexual act involving the urine of the individual (s).

This can include playing with urine, peeing a small amount on the other person, or even accidental leakage during your sexual intercourse. Believe it or not, golden showers are an enjoyable act and therefore, enjoyed by many.

While reading this, you might wonder whether swimming in a pool with someone else’s urine in it, consciously or unconsciously, be counted as a golden shower? The answer, to your surprise or horror, is yes!

Golden shower is often considered to be one of the desirable fetishes in the sexual act which is generally associated with the dominant-submissive role-play. Now, some people are in favor of it, whereas the majority is often found on the other side of the tunnel.

The matter with the golden showers is, it is dependent on your sexual choices and preferences. There is no need to be ashamed and be the one to shame other people based on that. However, one needs to understand that while trying new things during the sexual act, one needs to be safe and take proper precautions.

Many people do not know this, but urine does transmit STDs and other bacterial infections when the person is not healthy or is not taking enough care of their body. Therefore, once you and your partner are sure that you guys are healthy, only then proceed for the watersports.  

Is Urophilia a psychological problem?

Although Donald Trump’s association with this sexual act made people believe that it is an act of insanity, a lot of leading psychologists have affirmed in the negative. Urophilia is basically when a person is sexually stimulated by the sight of a person urinating.

It is neither a psychological problem nor a perversion. People who are into golden showers or urine play during sexual intercourse do not have cognitive dysfunctionalities nor do they have any sort of deficiencies.

However, one might question why people are so attracted to a thing like urine? Urine is a waste product of your body and to be erotically charged to it, seems quite weird, doesn’t it?

However, people who are into urine play or urophiles to put more scientifically, are generally sadomasochistic. Sadomasochism is a combination of sadism and masochism which means being sexually stimulated by inflicting and receiving pain.

Now, urinating is not painful, but it is humiliating. So, the golden showers imply humiliating or being humiliated during sexual intercourse, which gives the urophiles much-needed sexual pleasure.

Now that you know the basics of golden showers, will you ever try them with your partner?

If you are thinking about it, here is the list of things that you first need to consider and then act upon your desires.

Things to keep in mind if you want to try golden showers

  1. Get your partner’s consent:

As this act is sadomasochistic, there is a chance that your partner might not be equally into it as you are. Therefore, it is very necessary to get your partner’s consent before you jump into anything. If necessary, give a few days to your partner to fully think about the decision you are asking them to make.

  1. Get hydrated:

If fortune is in your favor and your partner is in for it, then the first thing you need to do before beginning your act is to hydrate yourself throughout the day. Drink as much water as you can so you can ensure a clean and smooth experience in the bedroom. Otherwise, you will face dark yellow smelly urine which might ruin your experience forever.

  1. Be careful of the infections:

As mentioned earlier, STDs and bacterial infections can be spread through your urine. Therefore, it is very necessary to keep your body healthy and live a healthy lifestyle to ensure clean urine. However, no matter how clean the urine is, make sure that the partner avoids urinating near the vagina of the female partner as it can ruin the pH balance.

  1. Don’t drink the urine:

Whatever happens, don’t drink the urine. It is okay to swallow the partner’s cum, but it is certainly unhealthy and unhygienic to drink someone’s urine. It is a waste product of the body which needs to be excreted and not ingested. Say a firm no to your partner if they push you to drink it. It is unhealthy and not safe.

  1. Take your time:

Experimenting with new things in bed and getting kinky is not everyone’s cup of tea. As mentioned earlier, if your partner is not okay with the idea, then you should respect their boundaries and experiment with other kinky things in bed. After a while, if your partner is ready for the golden shower then it is your responsibility to inform them regarding the right way to do it.
