Sex swings are the perfect way to try something different and spice up your sex life. Sure, you can try a different position, a bit of bondage, (maybe throw some handcuffs on). Or you can try a sex sling that combines all of that into one delicious piece of sex equipment.
Why live with both feet firmly on the ground when you can have sex while suspended in mid-air? Eyes closed and legs (and minds) wide open, that’s the way we like to do it! You are about to discover a new thrill to sex life, and we promise you are going to love it!
Generally speaking, sex swings allow couples to try out more sex positions It’s a great stimulating activity! When there’s no physical space limiting them, couples can get adventurous and try out some heavy-duty sex swing positions that simply can’t fly on the bed (table, floor, chair, etc.)
When it comes to BDSM, swings are also handy as the harnesses, ropes, and the ability to restrict one partner generally go hand in hand with fetish bondage.
First-time sex harness users should pay attention to some things, though. It’s not all fun and games, and you can’t just jump in a sling and hope for the best. So here are the best sex swing safety tips, so you can fully enjoy this euphoric stimulation without hurting yourself.
Don’t Go In Blind
We understand the urge to try out a new sex toy as soon as you get your hands on it. However, that’s not the smartest course of action for any toy, and especially not for swing chairs.
So, our first safety tip is to check the description of the swing. That means both doing your research before you cough up the money to buy one and checking the instructions after you finally get the naughty delivery.
Sex swings are usually really easy to assemble. They aren’t a piece of IKEA furniture that will inevitably leave you in tears and with a few extra parts and a wobbly leg after you assemble it. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read the instruction booklet carefully.
Depending on what type of a swing you opted for — door sex swing, a sling with spreader bars, or one with a sex swing stand — you’ll need a few tools to bring it to its intended glory.
Don’t Push the Limits
Always make sure to check the maximum weight limit of your chosen sex swing and the entire sling kit. What’s more, if you have a sling that’s hanging from the door, consider the door’s endurance as well.
If you or your partner have some delicious curves, make sure you pick a swing that can provide you with a pleasurable experience and not leave you in a heap on the floor. Also, keep in mind that even if the description states a certain weight, that doesn’t necessarily make it true. So, check user reviews and pay close attention to disgruntled customers who got their asses handed to them by a snapping swing instead of their partner.
Generally speaking, the more weight the swing can support, the better. But, keep in mind that you’ll also need either a sturdy stand for those or durable, heavy-duty ceiling hooks.
Pick and Choose When It Comes to Variants
Sex swings come in various forms. For those who are cruising through the kinky world of sexual experimentation usually get a door swing. It’s smaller, easier to store, and it doesn’t take up the entire room.
Traditional swings, with hammocks or platforms, take up more space and are generally more expensive. That’s especially true if they are leather slings — the ones you see in the depths of BDSM dungeons where debauchery lurks around every corner. We’re just kidding, dungeons are usually very fun, and swings are a staple piece of sex furniture in them. However, if you see leather or PU leather swings in a dungeon, check if they are being cleaned between uses.
Aside from the traditional and door swings, you can also get a body swing. Now, this type requires a lot of endurance from both partners, given that there’s no external factor to support anyone’s weight. The partner in the swing is actually in a harness wrapped around the other partner’s chest, shoulders, and thighs.
Now, this doesn’t sound particularly comfortable. What’s more, we’re guessing that the person wearing the harness needs quite a bit of upper body strength to endure more than a few minutes of this highly energetic and demanding sex device.
Pick the Perfect Spot
Before buying a sling, make sure you know where you’re going to put it. That isn’t a problem for door swings (or body slings, of course).
However, traditional swings and fantasy slings demand a bit of preparation. Do you have room in the house for a swing? Are you able to suspend it from the ceiling? If you think you can attach the swing to the ceiling, keep in mind that you have to pick the right attachment point.
The Fun Starts After a Thorough Checkup
Once you get your swing, please read the description, install it, and recheck it. Make sure you go over each part, harness, spring, hook, and piece of other equipment. You have to know that everything is working perfectly before you or your partner climb into it.
If you have ceiling hooks, make sure they are correctly installed. Those among us who are into hard bondage and have swings with additional ropes and restrictions need to check that nothing got tangled during installation.
A Few Parting Words
Safety is one of the essential factors when it comes to sexual experimentation and BDSM. Therefore, before you decide to buy a sex swing and especially before you start using it, make sure you’re doing so safely. Pick the best one for your needs, and enjoy swinging!
