Sex in the Shower locking suction foot rest - sex toy for couples by Sportsheets - review by DeliciousSurprise

It Kinda Sucks

This footrest is a great positioning aid. It can slide off and pop off when it's in a bad mood, but when it's installed well, it makes leg-raised positions much more comfortable. It's versatile and has lots of uses (Shave your legs! Have hot shower sex! Put your soap down!) which means you can keep it in your shower without anyone thinking that it's a sex aid.

extremely useful review
The Sex in the Shower Locking Suction Foot Rest is a shower position accessory from the Sex in the Shower line by Sportsheets. Meant to provide stability and comfort for those shower romps, the footrest is meant to be used for couple sex, though there are some benefits for the single people among us. This can be used during masturbation, or even for regular shower activities, such as shaving and scrubbing your legs.

The Suction Footrest itself is made from a hard white plastic footrest, and a whitish blue rubber suction cup on the back. The footrest itself is gently sloped to provide a comfortable slope on which your foot could rest; my size 8 feet had no problem with comfort and I think that even larger men's feet would be fine comfort-wise. On the bottom of the footrest is a lever that is used to lock or unlock the suction; this toy will not just stick if you lick it and smack it against the wall (trust me on that one; for the good of science I gave it a go. No dice.), it must be locked to stick. The lever can be very difficult to pull down, so people with arthritic hands or who don't have great hand strength may need some assistance, but if you do it slowly you should be fine.

Unfortunately, this footrest needs to be suctioned onto a completely 100% flat wall that is 150% dry. If the wall is curved or textured (tiled and grouted, for example) it will not stick at all; you'll suction it on and it'll pop off like it's laughing at you, and you will not laugh back. If your tiles are large and you can place the entirety of the outer rim in one tile it will stick, but across multiple tiles will break the seal and it'll fall off. The box indicates that it will work on most smooth surfaces and tiles measuring at least 4" (10.16cm). Likewise, if your shower wall is wet (or even damp!) it will slide down, suctioned or not. You may be able to suction it to the wall when it's wet but, really, just save yourself a big headache by drying off the wall first.

The first few times I attempted to put this on my wall, I had no success getting it to stick; it would look fine but I'd put a bit of weight on it and it'd pop off. Finally, I had it stuck well. I tentatively put my foot on it and it didn't move. I put more weight on it, and it stayed firm. Success! I left it alone without using it for 3 days, and awakened to find it lying on my shower floor. I reapplied it, and found that the next two days it fell off again and again. I moved the footrest directly into the center of the wall, away from any hint of a curve and it stayed there for 5 days without falling. I found that when I put my weight on the back of the footrest (closer to the wall) that I felt much more stable than when I put my weight on the front of the footrest. As a larger woman, I did not feel that I would topple over--but I did keep a hand on a handhold, because knowing that it kept falling off when I wasn't in the shower, I felt better with that security--just in case.

Sadly, even after my successful stick, I found that it keeps falling off the wall. Because of its random unstickings, I'm not comfortable really putting my weight on this, for fear it'll slide down and I'll smack my head on the faucet, and either wake up (A.) concussed and bleeding in my bathtub or (B.) naked with someone I probably don't want to see screaming at me and asking me stupid questions. BUT it makes sex and shaving easier because I can raise my leg comfortably and don't have to keep it lifted up. Another thing this can be used for is propping your elbow on or as a handhold. It also makes a nice soap dish. Because it has so many uses, this aid is pretty discreet; anyone inquiring can be told of its other use as a leg-shaving-accessory, and none will be the wiser to the more nefarious uses.

To clean it (soap scum or mold buildup, or if someone hasn't been washing their feet before using it) you can spritz it with bleach and give it a good scrub, or give it a nice wash with soap and water. The box shows the footrest, a couple having sex with the footrest and the matching handle and some basic instructions on how to operate the suction handle.
Experience
I had high hopes for this product--and I REALLY like it, when it's working well. I'm only giving it three stars because I can't ever feel really comfortable using it when it falls off so frequently. When it works, it works very well, but to have to reapply it every time I want to shower is a big pain.
Follow-up commentary
Well, it finally happened: it finally slid down while I was using it. Picture it: me, in the shower, in a bathing suit (hey, I've gotta maintain my modesty here), one foot delicately perched on the foot rest when, rather suddenly, my foot and I begin sliding towards the floor. I lose my balance and pitch headfirst, knocking over all sorts of things that are balanced precariously on the sides of my shower, before catching myself on the shower curtain rod. Claaaaassy.

Now: do you really want to experience this while you're in flagrante delicto? I think not.

Because I can't trust my safety to it anymore, it's gotta go. It was nice, but it never really worked as it was meant to.
