Sex Swing Guide
We've all heard Sia proclaiming she's going to swing from the chandelier and, while we recommend you leave the expensive light fixtures alone, swinging can be just what you need to spice things up in the bedroom.
Sex swings can transform your sex life, making intercourse just as exciting as it was the first time. Offering many positions that aren't usually possible, zero gravity sex is not to be underestimated. A sex swing won't be the cheapest addition to your bedroom, but it could be one of the most fun!
Sex swings are an advanced bondage sex toy. There are a few different types available and several ways to use them, so we recommend visiting our Bondage section to explore your options.
What is a Sex Swing?
Essentially, they're the kind of furniture you can't find in your local homeware store. Sex swings are a series of supports, usually hung from a frame or secure beam, that allow one or both partners to be safely suspended off the ground during intercourse.
Remember to always check the weight limits given before purchase. Most sex swings will hold around 20-25 stone in weight if anchored properly.
When choosing your first sex swing, you should consider what areas in your house it can suspended one. If you have a secure ceiling beam, you can drill a hole and hang your swing using the attachments we send as part of your purchase. If you don't have a secure beam, we recommend buying a sex swing frame to hang the swing from.
If you're not sure which to go for, we'd suggest purchasing a frame. Any falls during use could be dangerous, while damage to your ceiling could mean awkward explanations to your insurance company. If you don't have any ceiling space, a sex swing which hangs over the door could be perfect for you.
Once you've finished using your swing, you can simply unhook and pack it away if you'd prefer for it not to be a permanent feature. You could even hang a wind chime on the hook if you want to be particularly discreet.
Sex Swing Positions
As you become more confident with your sex swing, you'll probably want to experiment with new positions. Try out our swing play suggestions to get your creative juices flowing!
One of the Kama Sutra's most popular positions, with the man holding the woman up as he penetrates. It's the kind of position you see in films but is often a clumsy no-go. The weightlessness created by a sex swing lets you enjoy this position confidently and comfortably.
Missionary with a Difference
Sit her in the swing with her legs spread apart, using the stirrups for support. As he penetrates the rocking movement will literally rock her world, making each thrust deeper and stronger than ever.
While the woman bends over the swing face-down, the man can penetrate either vaginally or anally. Again, the swing's motion will allow for deeper, stronger thrusting.
If you prefer female penetration, this position is ideal for those using a strap-on sex toy. If you don't already own this type of toy, you can visit our strap-on section to explore what's on offer!
As he sits in the swing, hold his thighs for control. Gently push him backwards and forwards as you perform the blow job, letting him swing to climatic heaven.
When it's her turn, put her feet in the stirrups and let her lean backwards as she holds onto the handles for support. You'll give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘lean back and relax'!
As one partner lies down facing upwards, the other lays across the swing face down above them. Take advantage of your weightlessness to gently swing as you give each other oral sex.
Simply lie on your back or front with your feet in the supports, swinging backwards and forwards as you indulge in solo play.
For an extra dimension of pleasure, you can also attach a suction cup dildo to the wall. As you swing, you'll love the deeper penetration your sex toy can offer!
