Did you know that three out of four Americans own dildos? Having a sex toy in your bedside table isn’t that uncommon, but what about your end table BEING sex toy? Sex furniture is another growing trend that most people don’t consider or talk about, probably because they think sex furniture has to be an oversized bondage table complete with shackles and restraints. Wrong! (Although those can be a lot of fun too!) A lot of today’s modern sex furniture actually doubles as regular accent pieces like couches, benches, or ottomans. Another fact most people don’t realize is that you can also purchase sex pillows, ramps, and other smaller items that you can easily tuck away and out of sight.
So what’s the purpose of sex furniture, anyway? Is it reserved for just the kinkiest most sexually adventurous couples? What are the benefits of using these unconventional pieces and where do you start when it comes to shopping? We’re here to answer all of your questions and more.
Grab your eye for design and desire and let’s get started!
The Benefits of Sex Furniture
Sex furniture, also known as intimate or erotic furniture, is designed to help couples fulfill specific fantasies, hold more difficult sex positions for longer (and more comfortably), and enhance the overall sexual experience. Some people lack the flexibility, strength, or endurance to hold certain sex positions for long periods of time. Sex furniture can make this easier. If your partner has a certain fantasy they’ve been dying to try, a little support can help make their naughtiest desires a reality.
The best part about sex furniture is that most of it is designed to resemble everyday decor. You can fill that empty space in the corner of your bedroom while also filling up your partner! Speaking of, sex furniture also helps you achieve deeper penetration, more intense orgasms, and have a more intimate experience. You and your partner can achieve levels of pleasure you weren’t able to in the past.
Types of Sex Furniture from Mild to Wild
Not all sex furniture is created equal. Intimate pieces range in style, size, and price. Whether you’re looking for something small and discreet or something to really elevate your sex game (and your bodies), there are countless options to choose from.
Here’s a quick guide on some basic pieces and other, more advanced selections.
If you’re simply looking for a little leverage, a sex pillow or wedge is the perfect option. This is also a good erotic item for beginners. Pillows, wedges, and ramps help tilt your body in the perfect position for deeper penetration, oral sex, and G-spot play. You can wedge these pillows under your hips, butt, or wherever else they fit comfortably to give your partner the right angle for your pleasure. It also prevents either of you from getting tired or getting a cramp during a hot and steamy sex session.
Did someone say shower sex? Countless couples take their fun into the shower, and why not? It’s slippery, sexy, and wet! But sometimes, achieving the right position while standing under a cascade of running water can be, well, tricky! That’s where a shower handle and grip comes in handy. The ironic part is, some people invest in these little gadgets simply to help them safely enter and exit the shower. But it’s way more fun to use a shower handle to achieve and hold the perfect sex position. This handle grips to the shower walls and give you something sturdy to hold onto while your partner is driving it home.
Sex swings are a classic piece of sex equipment featured in countless movies and TV series. Don’t be fooled into thinking they’re only for acrobats and gymnasts. In fact, sex swings are pretty versatile and user-friendly for even those new to the world of sex furniture. Sex swings are commonly hung from the door, bed, or ceiling to help you elevate your partner and your pleasure. Sex swings offer easy access and the ability to achieve weightless positions with minimal effort.
Now we’re getting into the actual pieces of furniture that double as sex toys and home decor. Sex chairs give you the perfect place to prop up your partner for pleasure. Many are equipped with specially designed curves and handles for added support and sturdiness. Designed to appear like modern, contemporary furniture, these chairs are guaranteed to become the center of attention at your next cocktail party. Some chairs even have footrests and handles, putting complete control in the hands of the rider. Unique designs are geared toward oral sex, missionary, and even doggy style. Most sex furniture pieces are also made of easy to clean material so you won’t have to explain any mysterious stains to dinner guests.
If a chair just not big enough to fulfill all of your naughty fantasies, you might want to invest in a chair, bench, or chaise lounge. These are probably the most popular pieces of sex furniture thanks to their gorgeous design, versatility, and size. Many sex couches are large enough for both partners to mount but are designed like a sleek piece of contemporary furniture. Curved with your pleasure in mind, these erotic furniture items help your body bend at just the right angle for deep penetration. Experimenting with G-spot or P-spot stimulation? With a few adjustments, you can achieve the perfect position for exploring these hidden erogenous zones. The best part is, many of these couches and chaises are beautifully designed and made of quality material that will last you for years to come (pun intended).
There’s something naughty and erotic about the thought of your guests sifting through magazines or enjoying a cocktail at a coffee table that doubles as a sex slave cage. Are you and your partner into kinky BDSM play? Designed to look like an artistic coffee table complete with bars, this sex furniture item is the perfect prop for those who practice the dominant-submissive relationship. By day, this table is perfect for doing work or eating lunch. By night, it’s your sex slave’s new home for both torture and pleasure.
Similar to a coffee table, sex stools are smaller pieces of erotic furniture that serve multiple purposes. Designed with two, stretchy strips of fabric in the center, sex stools give you added leverage and bounce in the riding position. Let’s face it, straddling your partner for an extended period of time can quickly turn from a pleasurable experience to an unanticipated exercise session. Sex stools take the pressure off your legs and glutes by offering added support. They also put a spring in your step (or should we say, ride?). With an opening between the two straps, your partner’s member will easily slip through and into you. These stools are also perfect for anyone suffering from an injury or pregnant women who need help propping their bodies up for long periods of time.
From bondage crosses to dungeon furniture, sex tables are not for the faint of heart. These items can’t really be left in your living room unless your friends are all as kinky and adventurous as you. Most people keep their sex tables tucked away for private use. Dungeon furniture ranges from stationary tables with handcuffs and restraints built-in to an adjustable table complete with holes for your nipples, genitals, and mouth. Strap your partner in face-up or face-down for hours of torture and fun! Some tables collapse for easy storage under your bed or in your closet, but all allow you to display your partner’s irresistible body in the perfect position for teasing and pleasing.
Sex Furniture Deepens Your Connection… and Penetration
Whether you’re simply looking to spice things up, deepen your connection with your partner, or fulfill your wildest fantasies, sex furniture can help you get there. Ranging in styles and designs that take you from wild to mild, these erotic items are just one more addition to your collection of sex toys and goodies! The biggest issue you’ll face is upgrading your goodie drawer to a goodie closet.
