What is a sex swing?
Well, aside from the obvious, a sex swing will allow you and your partner to work smarter. Sex swings give you access to your partner in new positions that you may have thought only the most nimble of swingers could enjoy. Sex swings provide you with genital access to your partner, flexing their hips allowing the passive partner to completely relax.
The sex swing essentially makes sex more exciting while taking some of that hard work out, giving you a chance to move more freely and take on more challenging positions. Sex swings can be used for vaginal and anal sex, while also providing some interesting positions for oral too. As mentioned, sex swings can be used for you couples that enjoy a bit of BDSM, as the partner sat in the swing will have little control, acting similarly to bondage.
Sex swings are also ideal for people with physical impairments or disabilities looking to broaden their sexual positions. If you or your partner suffers from muscular weakness or arthritis, a sex swing can take the load off, giving you more time for pleasure. Sex swings are also perfect for individuals in wheelchairs, allowing you to be hoisted before the fun begins.
Of course, when embarking on a sex swing journey you are going to want to remain as safe you can (or want), after all, you are suspended above the ground.
What are sex swings used for?
There are many ways to spice up the bedroom and a sex swing is a popular option but what is a sex swing? The sex swing is essentially a harness, allowing you and your partner to enjoy sex, with one partner being suspended as the other moves freely. Designs vary from product to product, providing back or bum support, with stirrups for each leg. Think of the sex swing as your own personal assistant, providing passive access while supporting you in a comfortable, position.
Sex swings are often quite basic in design, with materials ranging from nylon webbing, leather, heavy rubber, and steel. Aside from sex swings, the varied designs can come in the form of sex slings, door sex swings, and body sex swings.
Traditional sex swings are comprised of two straps and two stirrups, with handles and headrests being available on some models. There are even bondage swings out there for you BDSM lovers, so truly something for everyone. These types of sex swings can be installed using ceiling hooks, stands, or even the walls of a hallway. Your traditional sex swing can provide you and your partner with the most amount of varied sexual positions.
For those that want to start swinging a little sooner, door sex swings offer easy installation as they can literally be secured by the door frame. These types of swings can limit the number of sexual positions you can enjoy but are fairly popular thanks to their quick installation.
Novelty is great for the sex life, and nothing says novelty quite like a sex swing.
If you’re just here to find the best one in terms of what I recommend, then you can’t go wrong with a premium option that won’t snap or strain (or put any unnecessary load onto a weaker doorframe).
For an overall winner of the best all-round sex swing, it has to be the Purple Reins Sex Sling over at Love Honey.
