“Books are finite, sexual encounters are finite, but the desire to read and to fuck is infinite; it surpasses our own deaths, our fears, our hopes for peace.” -Roberto Bolaño
The other day over lunch a good friend of mine came to me with a question, “what is the deal with sex swings?” She had been told by another friend that a swing had changed her life and improved her orgasms a ton. Obviously my friend was intrigued. Sex swings used to be something you only found at sex clubs and those who were a little more conservative might have never crossed paths with one or even heard of the contraption. But these days sex swings are more accessible to anyone who is interested. You can even buy them on Amazon. They aren’t that expensive and they can be set up and taken down in your home and no one would be the wiser that you had one. Swings allow couples to try new positions and experience new heights of pleasure. Could a sex swing be for you? Read on to find out…
Sex swing users have been quoted to say:
“When I finally got to try the swing out I was hooked, it was sensational for getting head with me able to spread my legs and give the guys easy access.”
“This is the best investment you will make in the bedroom. Hands down. I have been with my partner for over a decade so we always like to experiment with everything when it comes to playing beneath the sheets. This is 10 times more comfortable, fun and exciting as a bed a wall or the floor could ever hope to be. The possibilities seem endless with furniture and different toys.”
“For sex the swing was sensational, with be feeling almost weightless I was able to manoeuvre myself to take a deep and hard fucking.”
In a sex swing your partner (or you) is completely suspended in the air with all of your weight supported. Some swings also come with stirrups attached so that the person can easily spread their legs while still be supported fully. A swing allows for access to the whole body at many different angles. You can access and hit different spots and erogenous zones with ease and without awkwardly flopping around the bed. Some couples with back problems and arthritis have even said that the swing helps them have an even better sex life because they are supported and therefore more comfortable. Some couples enjoy the submissive nature of being in the swing and being at the mercy of their partner. This toy also just feels naughty, knowing you have a whole device in your home devoted just to pleasure!
Types of Swings
1. Door Frame Swing – This sex swing hangs from your door frame. One of the big benefits here is that it can easily be put up and taken down. This is beneficial to couples with children or who are concerned about someone seeing their swing. It can also hold a good amount of weight.
2. Ceiling Anchor Mounted Swing – This swing is mounted by an anchor into your ceiling or a beam in your home. It can hold even more weight and the swing can be taken down when not in use. The anchor point would still be visible so some users have suggested using some kind of other decoration to cover it, so it won’t be visible and obvious to guests.
3. Stand Alone Frame – This type of swing is the most expensive and the one that takes up the most room, but it has its benefits as well. Many feel that it provides the most amount of options for playing and is the sturdiest. This would be an ideal option for someone who was able to leave it set up in their home.
Recommendation* Get a swing that offers butt or back support. There are some that come without it, but you will tire more quickly or they might just be much less comfortable.
It’s also very important to consider the construction and materials of a swing. Even though a swing might seem like a big investment to some, you want to resist the urge to cut corners and get a cheaper model. The quality of the materials will affect the construction, safety and usability of the swing and will obviously affect your experience. Therefore a good swing should have strong materials to hold more weight than you think you need. Some good materials that the rest of the swing (seat and stirrups) could be made out of include: nylon webbing, canvas, leather, or evenly layered latex or rubber.
Now that you have the low down on sex swings it’s time to try one for yourself, if you’re up to the challenge that is!
