Sex swing FAQs
What is a sex swing?
A sex swing is essentially a harness that supports a person’s body weight during sex. The individual in the swing typically has a limited range of motion, whilst the partner on the outside of the swing can move freely around it.
Why should I buy a sex swing?
Sex swings are the perfect way to let go. They can be extremely liberating. Once you’re strapped into a sling, you get to let go physically, and emotionally. By succumbing to your partners wants and wishes, you will be able to truly submit to desire.
Are there different types of sex swings?
There are three main types of sex swing – sex slings, door slings, and hanging sex swings. Often the single term ‘sex swings’ is used to describe all three.
A sex sling is a large piece of fabric that has 4 mounting points. It supports the whole body like a hammock which makes it extremely safe. However, sex slings are usually more expensive than sex swings because 4 mounting points are needed. Moreover, when inside the sling, the fabric will either cover your enter front side, or back side. This significantly limits the range of sex positions you can try with a partner.
Simply put, a door sling can be hung on a door and used for sex. The sling should only be used when a door is tightly shut. Metal stoppers on the end of the straps can hold the door swing in place. Door slings are typically cheaper than sex slings and sex swings which makes them ideal for couples who would like to try a sex swing, but don’t want to invest too heavily. However, like the sex sling, door slings can be restrictive. The person in the sling must be pressed against the door at all times.
Sex Swings are the most popular option. They are also the most versatile. A sex swing has 2 main straps and stirrups. As the sex swing only requires 1 or 2 mounting points (maximum), it is typically cheaper than a sex sling too. Furthermore, the comfort and flexibility that sex swings afford makes them ideal for couples keen to use their swing regularly in devilish ways!
What should I consider before buying a sex swing?
You should consider the following before purchasing a sex swing:
- Installation/suspension – it’s important to consider where you will install your sex swing, and whether the roof or stand could support the weight
- Weight limits – In the description of every swing below, we clearly state the maximum weight that the swing can hold. Weight limits are particularly important for men, and for plus-size individuals
- Design – design is a key consideration too. Any sex swing you choose will most probably be a permanent fixture in your home. There are a variety of colours, and materials to choose from, so be sure to choose one you love!
- Comfort – If you’re male, or plus-size it’s extremely important to choose a sex swing that provides enough comfort for you. This means strong materials, straps and stirrups for maximum support.
- Price – There are a range of sex swings out there to suit all price points so there is no need to break the bank. Just because a sex swing is more expensive, it doesn’t mean that it will necessarily be any better at fulfilling your needs.
