The '''hot tub''' is a type of object in [[The Sims (series)|The Sims Series]]. It provides [[fun]], [[hygiene]], [[social]], and [[comfort]] to Sims who use it, as well as giving them a place to build relationships and even [[WooHoo]]{{Vgversion|TS:HD}}{{Vgversion|TS:V}}{{Vgversion|TS2}}{{Vgversion|TS3:LN}}. Extremely outgoing Sims may get in the tub naked. [[Don Lothario]] of [[Pleasantview]] was known for wooing his women into here, and then having WooHoo with them.

Hot tubs in ''The Sims 3'' are introduced in ''[[Late Night]]'', and more variations of hot tubs are featured in subsequent expansion or stuff packs. The hot tub appears in certain number of packs, but the functionality is carried forward in the base game via patch. Therefore, it's possible to own a hot tub without the need of ''Late Night'' or other expansion packs, by using [[custom content]]s or store contents.

There are two types of hot tub: normal and grotto. The normal hot tub takes up 3x3 space, while grotto hot tub takes up 4x4. Only built-in floor hot tubs are available, unlike the previous games. Sims are able to [[WooHoo]] in the hot tub. Sims can [[Skinny dipping|skinny dip]] in the hot tub as long as there's no teenagers or younger on the lot. Sims can also ask other Sims to skinny dip with them, and they often roll a romantic wish of it. The skinny dipping interaction requires ''Late Night'', even if the functionality of hot tub is carried forward. Sims who relax in the hot tub can shorten the time period of "Fatigued" and "Sore" moodlets.

''[[The Sims 3 Pets (console)]]'' has hot tubs which are from ''Late Night'' and feature skinny dipping. The order of which hot tub is the best has been swapped a bit; with the celebrity hot tub being second best and buyable, while the second best is best and has to be unlocked by solving the socialite club mystery.

==The Sims 4: Perfect Patio==
  +
Hot tubs were reintroduced in ''[[The Sims 4: Perfect Patio Stuff]]'' as the '''Pringo's Heater Hot Tub''' and the '''Left of Center Hot Tub'''. Two different designs are available for each tub. Both tubs have a size of 3x3 tiles.
  +
  +
For the first time in the series, [[child]]ren can enter hot tubs. Like previous games in the series, Sims inside the tub will chat with each other. Sims can also WooHoo and skinny dip inside the tub.
  +
  +
===Upgrade list===
  +
Sims with the handiness skill can upgrade the hot tub to have an aromatherapy filter and a stereo.
  +
  +
Upgrading the hot tub with a high handiness skill unlocks several upgrade options, including the "Unbreakable" upgrade.
  +
*Aromatherapy Upgrade (Level 3 Handiness).
  +
*Stereo Upgrade (Level 5 Handiness).
  +
*Unbreakable Upgrade (Level 8 Handiness).

|Mr. Prometheus Pringo loved the warmth of the sun on his skin. The feeling of steam creeping up to his skin. The knowledge that, with time, the heat would prune his epidermis. That's why he loved hot tubs and devoted his millions to making a hot tub affordable to the every man or woman. Join Mr. Pringo metaphorically (unless you're the one with his body -- call us!) in this luxurious hot tub for all!

Hot tub
Liz-john-hot-tub-of-love
Two Sims using the Love Tub hot tub.

The hot tub is a type of object in The Sims Series. It provides fun, hygiene, social, and comfort to Sims who use it, as well as giving them a place to build relationships and even WooHoo[TS:HD][TS:V][TS2][TS3:LN][TS4:PPS]. Extremely outgoing Sims may get in the tub naked.

In The Sims 2, The Sims Stories, and The Sims 3, pregnant sims can not get into the hot tub.

The Sims

There are multiple hot tubs available in The Sims and its expansion packs. These tubs have different prices, different seating capacities (some seat 4, some seat only 2), and improve motives at different rates. Hot tubs can be bought from the plumbing section of the buy catalog.

Back in the early 70's, Sim Nation was full of crazy ideas: free software, good public schools, affordable housing, and many other fads. While tax rebellions and fear destroyed most of them, the "hot tub" fad has become an entire industry! And no wonder...with the epidemic triad of overwork, troubled children, housing shortages, Sims everywhere need a way to relax!!! 100% reclaimed redwood.

The Sims 2

Hot tubs in The Sims 2 fulfill Fun, Hygiene, and Social (if multiple Sims are in the hot tub). Sims can WooHoo and Try for Baby in a hot tub, although the success rate of Try for Baby is greatly decreased. Two hot tubs are available in the base game, and none are added with the expansions. The Sims 2 also has a hot tub (the Love Tub) which can be earned as an Aspiration reward that increases the success rate of romantic interactions while in the tub. All hot tubs in The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories seat four.

If Seasons is installed, a hot tub will satisfy a PlantSim's need for water. If FreeTime is installed, Sims can tinker with the hot tub.

Who can resist the sensual appeal of soft lighting, warm water, and sizzling romance? Just about no one if they're soaking with your Sim in the Love Tub, that's who! No need to check to see if your Sim's skin is getting pruny, either . . . when the candles go out, it's time to retire to a private place. Ahhhh yeah!

The Sims 3

Two Sims in a hot-tub in Late Night.

Hot tubs in The Sims 3 are introduced in Late Night, and more variations of hot tubs are featured in subsequent expansion or stuff packs. The hot tub appears in certain number of packs, but the functionality is carried forward in the base game via patch. Therefore, it's possible to own a hot tub without the need of Late Night or other expansion packs, by using custom contents or store contents.

There are two types of hot tub: normal and grotto. The normal hot tub takes up 3x3 space, while grotto hot tub takes up 4x4. Only built-in floor hot tubs are available, unlike the previous games, and the hot tub will take up a section of space in the floor immediately below it to provide room for the tub and utilities. Sims are able to WooHoo in the hot tub. Sims can skinny dip in the hot tub as long as there's no teenagers or younger on the lot. Sims can also ask other Sims to skinny dip with them, and they often roll a romantic wish of it. The skinny dipping interaction requires Late Night, even if the functionality of hot tub is carried forward. Sims who relax in the hot tub can shorten the time period of "Fatigued" and "Sore" moodlets.

The Sims 3 Pets (console) has hot tubs which are from Late Night and feature skinny dipping. The order of which hot tub is the best has been swapped a bit; with the celebrity hot tub being second best and buyable, while the second best is best and has to be unlocked by solving the socialite club mystery.

The Sims 4: Perfect Patio

Hot tubs were reintroduced in The Sims 4: Perfect Patio Stuff as the Pringo's Heater Hot Tub and the Left of Center Hot Tub. Two different designs are available for each tub. Both tubs have a size of 3x3 tiles.

For the first time in the series, children can enter hot tubs. Like previous games in the series, Sims inside the tub will chat with each other. Sims can also WooHoo and skinny dip inside the tub.

Upgrade list

Sims with the handiness skill can upgrade the hot tub to have an aromatherapy filter and a stereo.

Upgrading the hot tub with a high handiness skill unlocks several upgrade options, including the "Unbreakable" upgrade.

  • Aromatherapy Upgrade (Level 3 Handiness).
  • Stereo Upgrade (Level 5 Handiness).
  • Unbreakable Upgrade (Level 8 Handiness).

Pringo's Heater Hot Tub §1,500 Mr. Prometheus Pringo loved the warmth of the sun on his skin. The feeling of steam creeping up to his skin. The knowledge that, with time, the heat would prune his epidermis. That's why he loved hot tubs and devoted his millions to making a hot tub affordable to the every man or woman. Join Mr. Pringo metaphorically (unless you're the one with his body -- call us!) in this luxurious hot tub for all! Hygiene: 1

Left of Center Hot Tub §3,575 This elegant hot tub was originally commissioned by the Center of Center Spa, and engineered by the fine scientists at FutureSim Labs. An unfortunate miscalculation resulted in a hot tub that was decidedly left of center, but this happy accident led to a promising scientific breakthrough in the field of time travel. Hygiene: 3

  • It is possible to skinny dip with a Teen or younger Sim on a lot by making those Sims leave the house, telling the adults to skinny dip and then having those Sims return. The Sims will continue to skinny dip but they cannot be commanded to skinny dip again.[confirmation needed]
  • If a Sim is equipped with an Audio Lite by LoFi Audio, the Sims will automatically place the boombox on one of the slots of the hot tub. This allows for music to be played while Sims go hot tubbing.
