(Newser) – Safe sex tip of the day kids: When using guns during foreplay, make sure neither they, nor you, are loaded. A 25-year-old Washington man says he learned this lesson the hard way Saturday, when he and his girlfriend busted out a firearm after a night of hard drinking. He told police that he rubbed the weapon all over her body, then set it aside as they had sex. Afterward he picked up the weapon, swung it toward the woman, and it went off, killing her.

“He was adamant the shooting was an accident,” police tell KIROTV, adding that he’d repeatedly called himself an “idiot” during his questioning, and suggested that he would hurt himself. But police say the incident is still under investigation; a background check revealed that there have been two domestic violence incidents in the couple’s home, both with the girlfriend, 22, as the victim. The couple has been together 10 years, and has two young children, who were asleep in the same room during the incident.
