Depends how warm your house is, I suppose! Remember, your body's temperature sense isn't objective. It can certainly sense changes in temperature, but remember the power being used to a certain temp has over your perception. That kids' science trick with the bowls of hot, cold, and lukewarm water is a good reminder.

Also remember that your own body temp is probably 98F. There's a difference, especially if you like wearing sweaters or hoodies, or if it's summer on your particular hemisphere!

My fish's water feels lukewarm to me, probably because I keep my room pretty warm.

If you're still in doubt, check the water temp with a cooking thermometer briefly... but wash it very well afterwards!
