The latest sex furniture is so sleek and modern, no one needs to know what else you're using it for.
Sex furniture. If you get creative, any piece of furniture is technically sex furniture (including the kitchen counter!) but the term "sex furniture" is just a little more specific. Instead of being crafted to watch the football game or provide a flat, sturdy surface to prepare tonight's dinner, sex furniture is specifically crafted for better sex.
"Sex furniture" originally described large, furniture-like pieces designed for amazing sex, it now has become a blanket term for anything larger than a sex toy that's designed to position your bodies for intercourse and foreplay. This means many people consider sex swings, sex shapes, sex positioning aids and more to be part of sex furniture - and hey that works for me! If you ask me, anything that gets people having better sex is a great investment.
Why Use Sex Furniture?
Really, there are a whole lot of reasons to use sex furniture. Let's dig into some of the top reasons out there:
More Pleasure During Sex
Our bodies have special areas inside of them that are particularly orgasmic. While penetration can feel great, it doesn't always hit those bundles of extra-sensitive nerves that can really make things feel great.
Unfortunately, those nerve clusters aren't always easy to hit in standard sex positions. Standard, penis-in-vagina missionary, for example, isn't known for coming anywhere near the g-spot.
Add a hip-elevating sex shape like the Dame Pillo, though, and the angle of penetration has instantly changed with just a slight tilt of the hips! Now that same position offers great g-spot stimulation - which makes for more pleasure for everyone involved! Win-win!
Added Comfort During Sex
Sex furniture isn't just for pleasure though. For a lot of couples, sex furniture is what can make sex workable in the first place!
Sex furniture can support bodies, change up angles, and relieve pressure. All of those things can go a long way to make sex positions more accessible for everyone. Whether you have an acute injury, a chronic condition, or your back just doesn't like some stuff, sex furniture helps people achieve new positions that just aren't possible without furniture.
For example, the upper-body elevating possibilities of the Liberator Ramp can make the Partner-on-Top position an option again for a penetrating partner with GERD. Or a Liberator Flip-Ramp can be slid under the abdomen of a receiving partner in doggy style to relieve pain in the knees - and make doggy style enjoyable!
It Opens Up New Sex Positions
Honestly, some things just aren't possible without sex furniture either! You might be able to whip up something with enough creativity, but there aren't many objects out there that offer similar curves, are designed for constant washing, and safely hold human weight.
For most people, having sex in the air without a sex swing just isn't physically possible - but a sex swing provides the perfect shortcut. For example, for most couples, the Doggy in Space achievable, but with the help of a sex swing, it's now within the realms of possibility!
Add Hands-Free Sex Toys
As sex furniture has become more popular, a whole new type of sex furniture emerged: sex furniture designed to hold your favorite sex toys for you!
A fraction of a cost of a sex machine, these sex furniture pieces allow you to enjoy your sex toys hands-free. While the shapes themselves only act as a physical holder for the toy, the fact that they exist helps you get your favorite toys into the spots where you most want them.
Liberator Bon Bon
For example, the Liberator Axis can hold a wand massager on the clitoris during penis-in-vagina sex - entirely hands-free! Another example is the Liberator Bon Bon which can make it possible to enjoy a toy anally while simultaneously having intercourse with your partner! All of them can be used solo, too, which opens up a whole bunch of different ways to play!
As a bonus, you can easily remove the toy from your sex furniture shape - and have a fully-functional sex shape there to improve your positions!
Trying Something New
Studies have shown, time and time again, that people tend to bond over experiencing new experiences together. It doesn't matter if it's a new restaurant with your friends or a new sex furniture piece with a partner, but trying new things, when it goes positively, is a universal social glue.
That effect gets amplified in the bedroom. Not only are you shaking up your "average" sex, but you're also staving off bed death. Novelty helps keep the arousal going and keeps you both excited and looking forward to sex.
Sex furniture, as opposed to using the same, flat surface of the bed for the 2,000th time, can be a simple and easy way to add that shake-up.
Types of Sex Furniture
Okay, so you're sold. Sex furniture sounds awesome! So, what sex furniture options are out there - and what do you need to know about them?
Well, let me help you:
Foam Sex Shapes
One of the most approachable forms of sex furniture, foam sex shapes are sculpted pieces of high-density, supportive foam that are designed to enhance your sex life. These sex shapes can vary in size, shape, angles, curves, and anything else. Their big commonality is that they're made of supportive foam!
While you'd think that "foam" would compress easily, I'm always astounded by how supportive high-density foam really is. With 400 pounds on top of it, compression is minimal. Even with three bodies on top (about 600 pounds) of a Liberator Wedge, all on top of one another, it compressed more than the 400-pound test, but it was nowhere near flat. That's the magic of high-density furniture foam!
Foam offers a soft, supportive surface that holds you in position without being unforgiving. It isn't rigid. Its extremely supportive while also allowing your body to gently sink a little bit into its surface. This can make it extremely comfortable - especially when it comes to putting knees or elbows onto its surface where hard, rigid shapes would hurt!
Foam, however, is very much susceptible to water and moisture. This is why most foam sex shapes include a water-resistant or moisture-resistant inner liner. This inner liner protects the foam itself from the "results" of sex.
Since moisture-resistant and water-resistant materials don't tend to feel as nice on the skin, most manufacturers then place another layer of material on top of this foam-protecting layer. This outermost layer is made up of soft-for-skin materials that feel amazing during sex. As a bonus, this makes for easier cleaning because the moisture-resistant liner keeps any of your sex messes away from the foam, so you just need to clean the layer of fabric that touched your skin.
That's exactly the case with the Liberator Tula. The bulk of the Tula is made up of a fully supportive, polyurethane foam that's very supportive. Pockets have been molded to allow a wand massager and sex toys to slide "inside" of the shape. Once inside, the surrounding foam molds around the sex toy which holds the sex toy - entirely hands-free!
Protecting the shape itself is an inner, nylon cover that zips onto the foam portion. This cover protects the same from any moisture or wetness from use.
Finally, the third cover is zipped on top of the nylon cover. This soft, machine-washable Velvish cover feels fantastic against the skin and makes the Tula more welcoming to use. When you're done with the Tula, just zip the cover off and throw it into the washing machine. It's that easy!
Here are some foam sex shape examples:
Inflatable Sex Shapes
Inflatable sex shapes are like foam sex shapes - but at a fraction of the cost. Especially when there's a budget involved or couples are trying to start experimenting with sex furniture, they might try an inflatable sex shape.
I don't generally recommend inflatable sex shapes. Just like your inflatable mattresses, lots of constant, sudden pressure causes holes to develop - and quickly. You might also blow out the plug which can lead to a sudden scramble to plug up the filling port before you lose all of the air!
Inflatable sex shapes are also only filled with air. This means that heavier bodies will squish down those sex shapes (and make them more likely to pop). Inflatable sex shapes just can't provide the same amount of support that foam ones do. It's just air!
All of this means inflatable sex shapes generally need to be treated with care - and nobody should be worrying about popping their sex positioning aids. Plus, if you do pop it, you either need to patch it - or all of that money is instantly down the drain.
On the opposing side, if you enjoy lots of wet and messy play, most inflatable sex shapes are made from vinyl and may be easier to clean than their foam counterparts.
Technical sex furniture options are just like sex shapes - only they might be the size of actual pieces of household furniture. Instead of fitting onto your bed and hiding in a closet, sex furniture may be as large as a couch or ottoman - and intended to be used without pulling them onto the bed!
Because of their large size, many pieces of sex furniture are designed with plausible deniability. That is, the ability to say "Oh, that! That's just a modern-style ottoman!". A clear example is the Liberator Equus Wave - which features two pieces that stack together to make an artistic-looking, non-sex-specific, ottoman when you're done.
Sex furniture is either made primarily out of extremely supportive foam (like with Liberator sex furniture) or made from wood frames with a fabric covering. Both can work great, and it just depends on your preference. Many people find that they enjoy the slight plushiness they get with foam sex furniture - and the fact that it's much, much lighter to move around.
Since sex furniture is so large, it may not be for everyone. It takes up the same amount of space as regular furniture, and depending on the design, it may not be easy to hide. However, some sex furniture can easily work "double-duty"! This same design of the Liberator Equus Wave can become an extremely comfortable chaise lounge to lay on while watching TV.
However, some people are really attracted to the idea of having "specific" sex furniture made just for their fantasies. Not only do these pieces offer more flexibility on sex positions, but you'll see its erotic presence every time you're around; it's like having a tease 24/7!

Taking your sex airborne, sex swings open up a whole bunch of sex position possibilities. Instead of staying on the ground (like other types of sex furniture does), sex swings take all of that fun and lift it up. From Door Jam Sex Swings all the way to Hawthorne sex swing look-alikes, these swings let you experience what "weightless" sex can feel like.
Sex swings are designed to support body weight, so it makes them a great addition for couples who like to explore adventurous positions. Since the swing can support some of the weight, those same, athletic sex positions become accessible to those who couldn't do them before.
