THE ART OF USING AND ENJOYING A SEX SWING
Have you ever been in the moment with your partner and suddenly run out of steam, or worse still suffered a muscle cramp because of the awkward position or effort that is required to maintain the position? The momentum is lost, and so is the intimacy.
Once upon a time, you just accepted this as part of sex. These days, in a much more liberated world, we find tools and tricks to improve almost every aspect of our lives, so why not our sex lives too? The internet, and movies like Fifty Shades Of Grey have made once taboo subjects such as BDSM and anal sex more of a mainstream norm, and as such the variety and availability of sex toys and sex furniture has increased immensely.
WHY USE A SEX SWING
Sex swings are a part of a collection of sex toys, and more specifically sex furniture designed to assist and enhance your intimate moments so you can reduce the effort and increase the pleasure. They are designed to perform two main functions:
Reduce Physical Strain On Muscles and Joints.
Sex furniture’s main function is to take the strain off your muscles and joints to facilitate longer more pleasurable sex, particularly if positions you once achieved can no longer be managed due to health or physical challenges and restrictions. Imagine you are carrying the weight of your partner, or visa versa, and at the same time trying to stimulate each other through a thrusting motion. There is only so much of this you can maintain, before muscles start to ache, and your stamina and performance begins to lag, your level of penetration is compromised, and your ability to remain in the same position becomes a real issue. Sex furniture, and more specifically sex swings, remove the effort required to maintain the position, as the swing itself supports and carries much if not all of your partner’s weight, offering a much longer and more pleasurable experience for both.
Increase the sensations and pleasure by experimenting with new positions that previously were not physically achievable for the duration of your intimate time with your partner.
No longer are you required to be a super fit athlete or porn star to maximise you and your partners pleasure. The opportunity to create some variety and anticipation beyond the normal sex positions that may be lacking in your relationship should never be overlooked. New toys in the bedroom always provide a sense of excitement and anticipation, and the variety of positions available through the use of sex swings far out way the options available for many smaller and simpler toys. That doesn’t mean you can’t use other toys in conjunction with a sex swing, in fact we would encourage it. The use of additional toys such as handcuffs, vibrators, masturbators, blindfolds, whips, anal toys and many other toys during “swing sex” will only heighten the pleasure.
The flexibility of the increased access to and from your partner, provides vast opportunities to explore positions for both, whether from front or behind, above and below, or even for a third participant. No longer are a couples height, weight, or physical impediment an issue when it comes to trying positions that traditionally require much more stamina and endurance.
TYPES OF SEX SWINGS
There are three main types of sex swing:’
OVER THE DOOR SEX SWING
Over the door swings are mounted over a normal door. Their biggest advantage is that they are extremely quick and easy to install. There are usually straps that go over the top of the door that have “stoppers” on the opposite side of the door to hole the swing in place when the door is shut. There is no permanent fixing to walls or ceilings required. They generally offer a simple set of straps to support your partner, including a seat, and possibly straps for wrists and ankles. Their biggest disadvantage when it comes the range of swings, is because they are mounted on a door, that can restrict the motion and also where the other partner can gain access.
A sling is a simple version of a free swing. They are generally mounted either on a freestanding frame (some come with the swing, others require a separate purchase for the frame), which is handy if you are renting and cant drill holes in the ceiling, or they are able to be mounted on an appropriately secured mount on the ceiling. They vary from a full swing in that they are much simpler in design, comprising a sling to support your partners weight and simple straps to hold arms and legs. These have considerably more mobility and access than a door swing, providing a much greater variety of possible positions for “swing sex”.
The top of the line swings are generally more expensive than either of the other two, as they incorporate better materials like leather, and provide more options with strap quantities and adjustments, and additional harness connection points . These sex position enhancers by far offer the widest range of motion and potential positions to all participants during “swing sex”. Like the sex slings, these can be suspended from either a frame, or preferably from an appropriately secured ceiling mount point.
No matter which option suits your needs, there are a huge variety of styles, colours, configurations, materials and suspension methods. Once you have identified the space you have, do your research and work out which type would best suit your situation.
Sex position enhancers like sex swings are well worth the investment when looking at your next toy for the bedroom.
