There are lots of places you can get frisky at but the hot tub isn’t one of them. The warm and wet environment is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and it doesn’t help that sex allows for a whole host of bacterial transmissions.
“Sex causes abrasions, sometimes microscopic, if there isn’t enough lubrication. These will open up the body systems to infections,” says Dr Christopher Chong, an obstetrician, gynaecologist and urogynaecologist at Gleneagles Hopsital.
And remember how there was a bacteria outbreak at a Playboy Mansion hot tub party some years ago? Some 200 people got really sick and suffered from symptoms including fever, respiratory problems and violent headaches.
According to Dr Chong, four other nasty things can happen just by hitting a home run in the hot tub. Scroll the gallery to check out what they are.
