What is a Sex Swing?

A sex swing is a positioning device that supports one or both partners in mid-air during sex. Some are a suspended seat like a playground swing, while others use leg and/or waist harnesses.

Many come with foot supports. These swings may hang from the ceiling or special stand or hook over a closed door.

As the height is adjustable, these swings can be used to compensate for mismatched heights, inability of one partner to stand for anything length of time or for exploring novel or challenging positions.

Best Sex Swing Positions

If you are still confused about what you would do with a swing, here is a quick review of some basic sex swing positions.

Standing

The woman is in the swing, legs spread wide. The guy is standing between her legs and all of his thrusts are amplified by the movement of the swing.

In the case of a door swing, the man can also stand between her and the door (with her facing him) and she can use her feet against the door as leverage to swing in and out against him.

Great option for short girls with very tall guys.

Rear entry

Same idea, only she is belly down on the swing, legs spread. He penetrates from behind or anally.

In the case of the door swing, he can again stand between her and the door (she’s belly down and facing away this time) and she can brace her legs against the door for movement.

Another option, is that he rides the swing and she’s standing in front of him and he can swing his thrusts in from behind.

Oral

Either partner rides the swing, while the other kneels down and pays their respects orally. Adjustable height means you can finally get the goods at the perfect height for your mouth.

Straddle

Both of you can get in the swing (check the weight limits first!) with the woman straddling the man.

Now all of the pulling, pushing and thrusting makes the swing move creating an exhilarating ride out of front entry sex.

Get the swing going in the traditional back and forth and let that movement take you.

Dangling

Adjust a seatless swing to a very low level and lay your guy on his back on the floor underneath. Drop down and take him like a dangling cowgirl while he spins and swings you around.

Considerations When Buying a Sex Swing

When deciding which sex swing is best for you, you’ll need to that about how you plan to use it.

Installation/suspension

Where will you use your swing? Door swings are easily removed and relocated, but ceiling or stand swings need their location picked in advance.

If you are using a stand, you will need to make sure you have room for it as it has a large footprint and requires some assembly which means you are unlikely to move it often.

A swing suspended from the ceiling can be removed when not in use (and you could have several different anchor points in your home) but you need to be handy enough to find a ceiling stud and drill a hole big enough for the anchor.

If your swing isn’t anchored well, you run the risk of damaging your ceiling and possibly yourselves if it fails during play.

A door swing is temporarily mounted over a door, but make sure your door is up to bearing your weight and won’t pop open when you are in the swing. The side of the door that closes into your door frame, rather than opening towards you, is the most ideal.

Weight Limits

The next thing to look at is who is going to have their weight borne by this swing. Are you only expecting a single lightweight person or someone heavier?

Do both of you plan to hop in and swing away? Be sure the weight limits of your swing are above what you absolutely need for the most fun and to prevent accidents.

Design

Swings come in a variety of different shapes and designs and some are better suited for certain positions and needs than others.

If you wants lots of swinging movement and 360 degrees of spin, you are going to need a ceiling or stand suspended swing.

On the other hand, a door swing allows the person in the swing to use their legs against the door for added leverage.

You could also achieve this leverage by mounting your ceiling swing close to a wall though this will limit the amount of free swing and spin you can achieve.

Comfort

Finally, give consideration to your comfort. Some swing have seats and others don’t.

If you’re looking for a good time but not a workout, you might want to look for a swing that supports you under your rear. 

Padding, wider straps and plush surfaces are also little addition to look for for more comfortable play.

Tips on Setting up and Using Your Sex Swing

Just to be safe, we've compiled some extra tips so you can stay safe while you and your partner use a swing. 

1. Read the installation directions carefully

Then read them again. If you are going with a ceiling hook, hire a pro and tell him that you just REALLY want a hanging plant in your bedroom.

2. Test your installation by sitting in the swing to make sure it can support you (and/or your partner)

This should go without saying, but be sure to hang from it before you two strip down and get started. No one wants their swing collapsing right before you both climax - buzz kill. 

3. Decide which position you are going to attempt and adjust the straps accordingly beforehand

You can’t just throw the swing up in the heat of the moment and expect that everything is going to work right the first time. Adjusting the swing can take a bit of time and fiddling. Get your swing ready first unless you can lose the mood while you figure out how to get the thing to work

4. Keep a sense of humor and fun!

It’s not going to be a magic porno scene, especially the first time you try out your swing. Have fun figuring out your new toy and being a bit over the top and silly with one another.

Conclusion

There are few items you can add to your bedroom that will radically change your position repertoire like a sex swing. If you want to really change up and expand the number of ways you make love, especially if you are otherwise limited due to body types or capabilities, a swing can be an amazing addition to your bedroom routine.
