The microvelvet feels a whole lot like the rest of the Liberator shapes do. It feels really, really soft on the skin. If I had to try to compare it to a material, I'd say that it feels like velvet - only if you took all of the "plushiness" away from velvet so all that remains is the softness in a thinner form. It honestly does feel really fantastic against the skin - and in a different way than the softness of the Liberator Throw feels against the skin.
It's really hard to describe the material and how it feels because it's such a unique material that I don't think I've ever felt on any other objects out there. It feels soft and welcoming. It isn't a slippery material, and instead, provides a slight bit of tension to it. You can easily run your hand over it without any pressure applied, but once you start pressing firmly against the material, it becomes harder to slide it across the material. So it isn't a slippery surface like satin while it isn't entirely plushy like velvet or fleece. It's this middle ground that (honestly) is perfect for a sex shape.
It also tends to stay relatively warm. It seems to keep a standard, room temperature feel to it, and I've never touched the microvelvet and said "brr!".
If someone asked me to design a sex shape material, it'd probably look exactly like this microvelvet material. I love how it feels.
The Limited Edition Wedge/Ramp Combo, however, includes contrasting side panels made of faux lambskin. Unlike the microvelvet, the faux lambskin is almost always slightly chilly to the touch. It warms up if you cuddle it for a bit, but for that initial touch, it's surprisingly chilled.
However, it's unlikely that you'll have much bodily contact with these side panels. Since the side panels are only there on the sides of the shape, you don't end up touching them very often.
If you ever do end up touching it, though, it's pleasant to the touch. It doesn't feel as luxuriously soft as the microvelvet, but it still feels very comfortable. It has a slick, textured feel to it (compared to the microvelvet), and even visually, the texturing adds a unique element to it that you don't get with the rest of the shape.
The transition from the microvelvet to the faux lambskin panels is perfect, and I don't see a single thread loose.
So, essentially, if the Limited Edition coloration is drawing you to pick up this Combo in the Limited Edition colors, I'd do it in a heartbeat. The quality is there, the visuals are there, and it's going to still be just as amazing as the standard Liberator Combos - only with some additional color options available.
How Else Could It Be Used?
One of the things I love about Kinkly is their no-nonsense approach to sex. That means that, before I could even dream about coming up with pictures to show some good sex positions, Kinkly had already done it for me.
Here are some of the sex positions that could work fantastically with this set:
Another one of the neat things about the Wedge/Ramp Combo is that it doesn't have to stay as a sex product either. It actually works fantastically for everyday life too - and you'll never have to worry about accidentally spilling on it.
Some of our everyday uses have included:
- Placing the Ramp underneath his upper body while laying down on the bed to watch TV. With his rough back, this was perfectly supportive while also giving him the elevation he needed. (This placement should also be helpful for reducing GERD symptoms while sleeping too!)
- Placing the Wedge underneath the knees while laying down. This seems to help prevent my legs from falling asleep - and it props up my knees as a great surface to place my laptop if I'm working while lying in bed.
- Using the Wedge underneath my workdesk as a foot cushion. It feels fantastic on the feet, offers great support, and can easily be washed up when I'm done.
- Laying on top of the Ramp while laying the length of the couch. My couch isn't particularly comfortable to lay on, but having the Ramp supporting my upper body made the entire experience much more comfortable.
- Placing the Ramp vertically with the thick "base" resting on the bed while the thin tip points towards the ceiling. Since our bed rests against the wall, this provides a soft, padded surface that I can lean back into.
- On our old headboard which had shelves, I could never sit up in bed without knocking all of our trinkets over. Using the Ramp like this would have allowed me to comfortably sit up.
- If you're someone who prefers to sleep with your legs elevated, the Liberator Ramp provides a nice, gradual elevation to make that possible.
- My other partner has taken the Wedge to yoga practice. She says that it's become the absolute "must have" in her group now. She says it makes lower back yoga support so much more comfortable in any assisted inversion pose.
Best yet, if you're using any of these sex positioning shapes in the bed (for sleep instead of sex), they aren't too large. They don't take up the whole bed, and they stay on "your side" of the bed. As long as you have at least a Full-sized bed, one partner can use the Liberator shapes for sleeping without disturbing the other person.
Essentially, each one of the Liberator Limited Edition Wedge and Ramp shapes are made up of three layers: the high-density foam, a moisture-resistant zip-on cover that protects that foam, and the outer-most zip-on cover that's designed to look great and feel fantastic against your skin.
Each one of the layers has its own part to play:
The high-density foam does all of the hard work keeping your body in the angles you want. It's really the workhorse of it all.
The moisture-resistant cover is designed to never be removed from the shape. It does include a zipper if you ever need to remove it, but for the safety of the foam, it's really designed to stay on the shape. This layer ensures all of your sexual "fun" doesn't reach the high-density foam - which drastically extends the lifespan of your sex shapes.
Since the moisture-resistant liner doesn't look particularly pretty or feel great on naked skin, the final layer is the microvelvet and faux lambskin cover. This cover also zips on and off. This layer feels fantastic against the skin (and only gets softer the more you use it!), and it's designed to be the easy-wash layer of the three. It also provides a more cohesive visual than the standard, moisture-resistant liner for a shape that looks as erotic as it is to use. You'll spend the majority of your time interacting with this outermost layer - whether it's for use, removal, cleaning, or putting it back on the shapes.
One of the cool things about the Liberator sex shapes (all of them, really!) is how light-weight they are. If you want to toss it across the bed, it's easy to do. The Wedge weighs about as much as a throw pillow. While the Liberator Ramp requires a bit more effort to toss around (mostly due to its larger size), it can still be tossed around the bedroom easily.
With no vibrating parts and nothing that moves against each other, the Liberator Limited Edition cushions make zero noise. Honestly, zero. The only noise you'll get is if you tap the zipper. The zipper can make a "doink" noise if it hits the zipper track during use. Otherwise, your bed is probably making more noise than these shapes.
Liberator sex shapes don't have weight limits - this set included. As Liberator shapes are made from high-density foam, it's impossible to overload them with weight to the point of "breaking" them. You just can't "break" foam by squishing it.
Now, that being said, the high-density foam of the Liberator Limited Edition Wedge/Ramp Combo will compress more under higher weights. This means you might get less of a pronounced angle if you stack higher weights onto the Liberator Wedge or Ramp. As with anything regarding weight, it also depends on how diffused the weight is, too. If you're lounged out on the Ramp with your weight evenly spread across the entire Ramp, it will compress any given area a bit less. If you're laying on your side with your hip as the only point of contact on the edge of the Ramp, that area of the Ramp is going to be very compressed.
All of that being said, there IS no weight limit for the Liberator Limited Edition Wedge/Ramp Combo. If you're a size 2, 12, 22, 32, 42, or 52, you can still use the Wedge/Ramp Combo. That being said, if you're on the higher ranges of these weights, expect to see a bit more compression from the shape - and possibly plan ahead to stack your shapes a bit higher than necessary to combat some of the added compression.
(As a note, Kinkly Shop also sells a Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo in a Plus size. These are the exact same shapes and angles - but with a shape width that adds 6" to the width. This helps provide more playable surface area for thicker bodies that might take up more space. The added extra width also provides more surface area - which allows for you to spread out weight a bit more to reduce compression.)
When it comes to the discretion of these cushions, I think the Limited Edition coloration actually adds more discretion. The two-toned design looks like it was designed to fit into a home interior - and makes the cushions look they were purchased from a bedroom and bath store for better bed lounging, honestly. The ONLY thing that might tip someone off are the small, sewn-in panels on one corner of the shape - or the Liberator zipper pulls (which could be cut off).

How It Works
The Liberator Limited Edition Wedge and Ramp are about as simple to use as humanly possible. You just place it wherever you want to use it - and then climb on top of it however you want to climb on top of it. That's literally it. There are no complicated steps or instructions to follow, and that's part of what makes the Liberator Limited Edition Wedge and Ramp so fantastic: they really encourage creativity.
Instead of having a to-do list to follow or a set of instructions, the Liberator Wedge and Ramp fit into your sex life however you want them to. How the shapes work for me won't be how they work for you - and that's what makes them magical. They can fit into such a wide variety of sex positions and activities from kinky restraints to impact play to some seriously hot mutual masturbation or pegging with the Strap-On-Me Strapless Strap-On.
It feels a bit like the sex positioning shape version of something like the Wild Flower Enby 2 or the Satisfyer Multifun 3: while there are suggested "ways" to use it, everything about its actual use is designed to be a "create your own adventure".
If you're at a loss, the suggested positions can really get you started on exploring ways that these shapes will fit into your sex life, but like all things sexual, it's all about experimenting and finding the best uses for the two of YOU.

Materials and Care
As mentioned above, the Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo Limited Edition is made up of high-density foam, a moisture-resistant nylon interior liner, and a microvelvet and faux lambskin exterior cover. These three materials work together to ensure you get the most from your Liberator sex shape - and it's still around to play with you for years to come.
Despite what you'd think for a sex shape of this size, caring for the Wedge/Ramp Combo is surprisingly easy. That is, it's pretty much as simple as doing a load of laundry. Whenever you're done playing with the Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo, you just unzip the outermost layer, turn it inside out, and toss it into the washing machine on Colds and Delicates.
That's it, honestly. It's (surprisingly) one of the easiest things I launder.
I recommend washing it by its lonesome - or tossing it into a large lingerie bag if washing it with other items of clothing. Especially when the set is new, I'd recommend washing it by itself just in case the color bleeds. But past the first washes, I'm only worried about the zippers catching on something, so I just toss it into a lingerie bag first.
For the ultimate in convenience, those same covers can also be dried in the dryer. Hell yes. Make sure to dry it on low heat, but if you want a quick-dry, the dryer is available to you. I've done it both ways. When I have time, I let the covers air dry when flopped over the top of the shower curtain rod, but when I plan for more sex soon (or want to have my place looking a bit less messy), we've done dryer too.
It doesn't seem to matter much to the covers.
After you're done drying them, the microvelvet covers can be rezipped back on to the sex shape. Especially if you dried it in the dryer, the fit can be a bit snug, and it reminds me of tugging fitted sheets onto a bed sometimes. That being said, it's easily something you can sit down and do on your lap, so it isn't nearly as frustrating as a fitted sheet. Expect it to be a nice, snug fit on your sex shape - and then you can rezip it right back on!
If your sex ends up making a LOT of a mess, you might need to clean more than just the outermost layer. We find that most of our sex mess stops right at this outermost layer - and we don't see a sign of it anywhere on the interior, moisture-liner layer. However, when we get a bit rambunctious with a bit of squirting, we could see areas on the interior moisture-resistant liner where things were a bit damp.
So, you can spot clean the moisture-resistant liner as needed. Use a slightly damp washcloth and a bit of soap, and clean up the areas where any mess happened. There should be no need to remove the moisture-resistant liner (and I really recommend that you don't. That IS the foam's protection against the elements, and it's much harder to zip a cover back onto foam, too).
To store it, just make sure nothing is compressing the shapes, long-term. We find it easy to toss them into a corner of the closet - or put them under the bed with no issue. The Ramp is a bit larger in size, so it tends to hang out on the top-most shelf of our closet where nothing can get in its way. But like I said, these shapes could easily be "couch-friendly", so if you want to leave them out as back support shapes for TV time, that can work too.
As far as I can tell, Liberator items do not come with any stated warranty information. However, you'd still be covered by Kinkly Shop's 30-day Return Policy in case of any defects.
One of the first questions I have with anything this big is: how is it going to arrive at my doorstep? Are my neighbors going to be secretly judging me because the "BEST SEX EVER" box was huge - and unmistakable - when it arrived?
I'm happy to report that the box was boring AF. It arrived in a plain, brown box. Literally, plain brown. It was smaller than I expected - but tall. It was shipped from "Fulfillment Center", and entirely unremarkable. You can see the box compared to a water bottle in my pictures. I was surprised by how slender it was!
Inside, there is a giant roll wrapped up in plastic - and the zipper covers wrapped up in plastic as well.
Then, in probably the coolest set-up ever, as soon as you open the "roll" of plastic, the Liberator Wedge and Ramp shapes will (literally) spring into life. Have you ever used one of those pop-up hampers that fold into a tiny, flat surface - and then they spring into life as soon as you begin unfolding it? That's what the Liberator Wedge and Ramp's set-up felt like. I'm really, really sad I didn't get a short video of it. It was cool and over within 3 seconds.
Turns out, in order to save on costs and resource drain for shipping these large furniture pieces, Liberator has figured out how to vacuum compress their shapes. This means that the Liberator Wedge and Ramp come in a package that's 90% smaller than they are - and as soon as air is introduced and the bag is opened, they pop into life.
The instructions say that you should give your shapes a few minutes to fully air out and expand before putting on the covers, but I gave them an entire overnight just to be safe.
And that's pretty much about it. The Liberator Limited Edition Wedge/Ramp combo came in a surprisingly small box - that was extremely discreet. Setting it up took (literally) seconds. It took me longer to open the box than it did to set up the shapes. Everything about the receipt and set-up of the shapes was impressively smooth.
The Limited Edition Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo box includes the Wedge, the Ramp, the moisture-resistant interior covers for both, the Limited Edition outer covers for both, and a small flip-book that includes the instructions and some visual illustrations for a sex position guide.
The Verdict: 5/5
Sex doesn't have to be just horizontal. With the Liberator Limited Edition Wedge/Ramp Combo, I've found that I can really change up the angles during sex - and do it easily and quickly. There's no more sinking into a plushy bed or finding my fingers scraped up because of constant rubbing against bedding: the Liberator Wedge and Ramp can elevate the hips for the easiest pleasure access we've ever had.
Not only does it make it easier to play, but it makes our sex positions feel even more orgasmic. For penis-in-vagina intercourse, we're hitting internal spots that were just impossible to hit before. Depending on how we use the shapes, it can make intercourse feel deeper - or shallower - in the best of ways. Intercourse just feels better with the Liberator Wedge and Ramp. Getting those angles is so important in a way I never could have predicted.
And when we're done, the covers for the shapes clean up just as simply as a sex towel would. We unzip them, toss them into the wash, start the wash, and done. That's it. No extra laundry, and the shapes are back in the pleasure-making business as soon as my washer and dryer have a chance to run a cycle. It's awesome.
Really, I don't have any complaints about the Liberator Limited Edition Wedge/Ramp Combo. It shipped quickly, discreetly, and in a surprisingly small package. It set-up in seconds, and the quality is impeccable. I tried to find some faults, but really, I don't have anything to complain about. The biggest complaint I have is that the Ramp is big and may require a bit of creativity to store.
Since the Wedge/Ramp Combo is, predictably, made up of the Liberator Wedge and Liberator Ramp shipped as one, your first option would be to just pick up either one of those shapes solo. While they're not available in the Limited Edition print when purchased solo, they still do the same, sex-boosting things that these prettier versions do.
Out of the two, I'd recommend the Liberator Wedge. (Or its buddy, the Liberator Black Label Wedge if you're into bondage). Not only is it the cheaper option and easier to store (due to its much smaller size), I find that it can provide a whole lot of amazing pleasure all on its own. It seems to provide that perfect amount of hip elevation to really help with hitting the g-spot or p-spot - and the perfect amount of elevation to get the hips off the comfy, sink-into squish of the mattress to make using toys or giving oral on your partner much easier.
If you're on a more limited budget, are smaller in body frame, and are open to something with a bit less size and lift, there's also the Dame Pillo. While it's much, much smaller in size, it's also a slight savings over the Wedge, too.
Of course, there's also the Liberator Ramp. The Ramp is like the thicker, larger, more-supportive version of the Wedge. Instead of the small, triangular design of the Wedge, the Ramp offers a large, well, "ramp" design. It's much larger to store, but it's also a lot more supportive under higher amounts of weight, provides a more gradual incline, and provides a taller height at the tippy-top point.
If you or your partner have a thicker body type, the Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo is also available in a Plus version. This Plus version is exactly (I mean, exactly) the same as the base Wedge/Ramp Combo except the shapes are 30" in width instead of 24" in width. Otherwise, it's the exact same padding, angles, and measurements. This extra 6" in width can provide extra room for your comfort when laying on the shapes. They're also available in a single Liberator Wedge Plus version and single Liberator Ramp Plus version.
Oh! And don't forget about any of the BDSM furniture Liberator options too. If you like a bit of kink, you might enjoy the Liberator Black Label Wedge.
Tips for Buying Sex Furniture
Sex furniture, while an amazing addition to your sex life, can feel a bit like an investment - because it is! Especially for larger pieces, sex furniture prices may be well-above what you'd typically spend for body-safe sex toys - and that can make the process of selecting sex furniture feel a little more complicated than simply buying a dildo. To that end, my "Love Life Need a Boost? Sex Furniture Will Put You In Position" article can give you a bit of help, but I'd also consider some of these points:
What positions are you trying to achieve? While most sex furniture options can be used in a multitude of different ways, most pieces have "ideal" angles they can provide. Sex furniture, much like your bed and other surfaces, have built-in angles. Select your sex furniture based on what sex positions you love.
What areas of your sex life could use support? Take inventory of your current sex positions and see where you might want to make some changes. Over the years, have you stopped doing any sex positions for any particular reasons? Is there a specific pain point in a sex position that you wish would go away? Consider looking up sex furniture pieces that can help support your body in the ways you need.
Are you looking for supportive sex furniture - or sex furniture to expand your sex position horizons? Sex furniture can really fill some amazing "holes" in your sex life - but it depends on what you need filled! If you're looking for a piece of sex furniture to open new sex position doors, something like a sex swing or an adventurous piece of sex furniture might be a great fit. If you're looking for something that offers support and cradles your body to better enjoy the sex positions you already love, make sure to shop with that in mind.
What are some other uses for your sex furniture? At least for me, I find it helpful to figure out "other" ways I can use my sex furniture. Not only does this help me "pull the trigger" on an expensive piece, but it also ensures that I've thought my purchase through. For example, the Liberator Ramp has been lovely for watching TV in bed for my partner's bad back. Pillows usually aren't supportive enough, so we've never been able to fall asleep to a chill show. It was a nice change of pace!
Other Reviews for the Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo
While the Liberator Limited Edition Wedge/Ramp Combo is brand spankin' new and only available for a limited time, the standard Wedge/Ramp Combo sets have been around for years. They're probably one of those iconic, classic items (like the Vibratex Magic Wands!) that have received so many reviews over the years.
(These reviews, however, may contain references to older forms of the Liberator Wedge/Ramp Combo - especially when it comes to the packaging! Liberator has recently changed up their packaging for that smaller footprint I was gushing about!)
So, some of those reviews include:
- The Toyful Review says: "Since receiving the Wedge and Ramp combo we have used them nearly every time we have had sex. The amount of variants in positions and support they provide simply make every position, both easier and more effective. Getting the perfect angle has never been easier and it truly has brought more fun into the bedroom."
- Life on the Swingset says: "The first thing we noticed was exactly how non-slip the fabric really was. We set the Ramp down on our bed, and then tried to adjust it by sliding it and it didn't budge. The cover also attracts dust and pet hair pretty easily, but, its fairly easy to remove the cover and throw it in the wash (which you'll probably want to do anyway)."
- Cara Sutra says: "I really cannot stress how much this wedge has changed our sex life. It isn’t a want – it’s a need. It is really worth its price tag. Yes, I know it’s high up on the price scale. But you are paying for a high quality, super luxurious, revolutionary product which will change your sex life."
- A Roll in the Hay says: "A friend did mention to me that the labels may be a problem for children or prying eyes. If that’s an issue, make good friends with a pair of scissors and a seam ripper so you can remove them."
- Insatiable Desire says: "You wouldn’t think flexibility plays a factor in one’s ability to lay flat on their back to masturbate, but the fact of the matter is… it really does. Along with strength, and comfort, and… Depending on what I’ll be doing, I often lay the Ramp on the floor, and put the Wedge on top of it, so that when I lean back, I have the support I need to focus all of my attention on my pussy."
