15 Pieces Of BDSM Furniture 
That Your Sex Dungeon Setup Needs

Written by: Angela Watson | Updated: March 10th, 2020

BDSM occupies a very special place for me since it adds a lot more spice to my sex life.

At it's core BDSM is simply exploiting how power dynamics fit in with regards to getting aroused and staying aroused.

Instead of the typical light touch expected from your average sex session, a lot more charge is taken by one partner (or both in an ever-changing way) to drive a sexual encounter a specific way. 

In BDSM one should expect a lot more hair pulling, butt slapping, as well as overall losing one's self in the moment.

That's not to say BDSM is entirely centered around pain and suffering, it's just that when a dominant partner moves in to make use of their submissive partner, everything is entirely up to the whims of the dominant person should that be the agreed upon arrangement.

To truly best exploit this condition of total power some useful bits of scenery can be employed, which brings us to the topic of BDSM furniture. 

With the right equipment to hook into or swing off of, your creativity can soar which is essential to keeping the orgasms flowing.

Each different sub type of sex furniture has its own merits, but I'll do my best let each individual product speak for itself as far as it's utility is concerned:

BDSM Chairs

This BDSM furniture option is the most accessible to any newcomers to the scene. They're just purpose built chairs meant to make pleasurable play a whole lot easier while also giving you more control over your partner. Typically they come with places for you to secure straps/harnesses and a few design choices that makes sexual activity a lot more dynamic. Some chairs are best suited for the submissive while others serve as a throne from which the dominant can call the shots. There's a lot of variance between any individual chair, let me show you some of the best options in BDSM chairs right here and now.

The Bondage Boutique Sex Chair (My Top Rated Sex Stool)

Simplicity is the name of the game with this BDSM chair from Bondage Boutique, it's just a few metal bars with an elastic sitting platform complete with a hole in the middle. The elastic sitting area is surprisingly strong, to the point where I had to get Don help me assemble it because I couldn't stretch it all the way myself.

I'd like to this that means the toy has some serious longevity to it. No matter how wildly either of us bounce around, it keeps on kicking.

Using the momentum of the elastic for some supreme thrusting action is how I best enjoy this chair. Sometimes we'll include restraints or handcuffs attached to the body itself, although I wish at times it had dedicated attachment points.

Through it all, it provided a great amount of added pleasure without taking too much out of our total BDSM budget. Best value, no doubt.

Pros

  • Inexpensive
  • Minimalist
  • Lots of possibility available

Cons

  • Requires strength to set up
  • No attachment points

The Liberator Esse (My Top Rated Sex Chaise)

The Esse isn't necessarily BDSM specific since just about any flavor of sexual encounter can be augmented by using it. The sheer range of BDSM friendliness of this chaise makes it impossible not to include on this list though.

It's a body length lounge chair with a very specific shape meant to allow for just about any kind of bending over and manhandling to be possible. Laying down directly on the chair is perhaps what my husband and I do the least on this toy, for us it's all about using the different edges and angles to let us have sex in some pretty wild positions without getting leg cramps while doing it.

I never thought having having my legs behind my ears could be so easy.

Pros

  • Soft & plush
  • Easy to keep clean
  • Smartly angled

Cons

  • No attachment points
  • Not necessarily BDSM specific

Tachigaeru Bondage Chair (My Top Rated BDSM/Bondage Chair)

Now if you're committed to having a dungeon worthy of envy that'll you'll be thinking about all the time just to get you through the day, the Tachigaeru bondage chair is all but essential. It comes with a platforms for both the ankles as well as the wrists for sinfully devilish restraining ability. Once you're locked into this chair you aren't going anywhere any time soon.

I consider it an end level product for people who know for a fact they're going to use it, this isn't an impulse buy.

At least they were kind enough to include straps for the feet and arms, without them it would be very difficult to justify the purchase. I'm a sucker for exotic names, how do you even pronounce Tachigaeru?

This is a classic example of when something is worth doing it should be done right. Just make sure that you consider BDSM something worth doing.

Pros

  • Fully loaded bondage chair
  • Well padded for long term comfort
  • BDSM friendly design of holes & poles

Cons

  • Takes up some space
  • High price tag

BDSM Beds & Bedding

BDSM doesn't necessarily need a dedicated dungeon. You can absolutely enjoy BDSM fun from the comfort of your own bedroom. Bondage within the confines of a bedroom is often how most people get introduced to the hobby, it's rare to find people going straight from vanilla sex right to hard core bondage style play. That's why I've decided to make this section early on in the article since they're the easiest items to nonchalantly integrate into your life without thinking you've went full domme-sub overnight. So, let's get to a few items great for bringing bondage to the bedroom:

Sheets Of San Francisco Fluid Proof Sheets (A Must-Have For BDSM Play)

Bondage play often involves a lot more extreme enjoyment of physical sensation, so temperature play as well as wax play are front and center. Nobody wants to risk ruining their 1000 thread count sheets for one night of roughhousing, that's exactly where these fluid proof sheets come into play.

It feels slightly rubbery because it's made from a polyurethane fabric. I wouldn't expect to sleep comfortably on it, just use it when you need it to cover your bed then change back to the usual regime.

There's this quality to the fabric that makes it seem more than just plain old waterproof. Whether it be lube, bodily fluids, oil, candle wax, everything just lays on top without soaking in for easy pickup later.

There really isn't a whole lot to say about items like this, they serve a valuable purpose yet are ludicrously simple in form.

Pros

  • Allows for unhinged BDSM play
  • Comes in a variety of sizes

Cons

  • Not great to sleep on

Liberator Grid Bondage Headboard (My Top Rated Headboard For BDSM Play)

Headboards and bondage go together like peanut butter and jelly. How can you feasibly expect to strap someone down to a bed and have your way with them if you can't tie them down to a headboard? This is for people who search for BDSM pleasure but like their current style of bedding or just don't want to get a raised bedframe to begin with.

Simply attach the wooden brace to the wall and slip the headboard on, no settings to fiddle with and no attachment points to search for fruitlessly. There's a handful of attachment points on the back frame that allow for a wide range of different restraints to be added onto.

So if it is a worthwhile bedroom bondage experience you seek, this headboard is a very simple solution.

Pros

  • Makes any bedroom BDSM friendly
  • Great design on attachment points

Cons

  • Requires installation

Dore Alley Dungeon Bed (The Only BDSM Bed I Can Vouch For)

I know what you're thinking: do I actually own this thing? I'll be honest and say that it took a long time before my husband and I felt like we really needed this in our dungeon, since it is a purpose built bed for bondage play that costs a pretty penny.

What makes it worth it to us is that it's actually a half decent bed as is that also comes with everything you'd ever need for full spectrum BDSM play. 

If you're on the search for a bondage friendly bed that has all of the bells and whistles you'll ever need then this is less of an impulse buy and more of a serious investment into the hobby.

Most consumer level beds aren't up for the amount of heavy usage BDSM entails, it's very useful for someone who wants to make sure they have a bed that can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.

Pros

  • One item, full spectrum of BDSM possibility
  • Can be slept on comfortable
  • Made of sturdy steel

Cons

  • Only for those very committed to the hobby

BDSM/Bondage Benches

The bondage bench serves as a valuable tool when it comes to restraining someone for nefarious purposes. They also go by the name of fuck benches, spanking benches, and sex benches, I really wish we could all just decide on one name. Ultimately they all refer to the same thing. Even a bondage table usually heavily resembles a bondage bench. A standard bondage bench is a long raised bench with many attachment points perfect for tying someone down. They help secure someone in place and leave them completely vulnerable to exploitation. Someone can be strapped in easily in a doggystyle position or kept laying down while still giving standing access to the other partner. What's not to love about that?

Prelude Bench (My Top Rated Sex Bench)

Liberator makes a whole lot of different sex furniture but their Prelude series does well at ticking some very pertinent BSDM boxes. First off, it's available in Prince, Queen, and King sizes, they're as long as their mattress equivalents are wide making for the perfect space saving disguise.

For reference sake, the Prince is 3' long with the Queen being 5' long and the King being 6'. Underneath are a series of hidden reinforced clips for securing your restraints to. The weight distribution has also been kept uniform to avoid awkwardness.

 All of these combined show it's an otherwise normal looking bench that's secretly been optimized for BDSM play. I really like that the maple feet are unfinished, we put a custom stain on ours to really sell the finish the piece as an average, well-chosen piece of furniture.

Pros

  • Great variety in attachment points
  • Made with BDSM in mind

Cons

  • Foam core might not be everyone's thing
  • Height isn't adjustable

Padded Spanking Bench (A Great Buy For Spanking Fetishes)

Nobody is mistaking this piece of bondage furniture for anything other than what it is, my mind practically fills in the blanks of someone strapped to it all by itself. It's made from vinyl that can be easily removed come wash time while there's enough padding and clever angling to that makes it the right possible for long term comfort.

It's 32'' wide, 32'' tall, and 40'' long so there's a lot to work with here. It brings out a wonderfully devilish feeling of helplessness without any cramping or unwanted soreness.

I really like how many individual placements there are when it comes to strapping yourself in, it seems like no matter what you're only a few inches away from the right kind of tied up.

Perfect for getting comfortable on the platform itself or being tied to it in a standing position, this thing gets a lot of use to the point where I'm worried I'll have to explain the leather cover whenever I have it removed for washing.

Pros

  • Dozens of attachment points
  • Rated to 300lbs
  • Easy to maintain

Cons

  • Price tag
  • Made-To-Order shipping times

Master Series Sex Bench (Awesome For Obedience Training)

Here's a bench that just made for obedience training, it's beauty is matched only by its comfort. Besides the bench itself there are adjustable leg, arm, and head rests so that anyone strapped in won't want to leave prematurely.

It's extremely sturdy to the point where its small stature can be somewhat deceiving, it can support up to 400lbs of weight!

Assembly is pretty straightforward plus restraints are included, you can have a BDSM experience right out of the box with this one which makes it perfect for anyone just getting started on their dungeon furniture collection.

I like the stainless steel construction a lot, while the adjust-ability pretty much sold me on the idea I didn't just waste a whole bunch of money.

Pros

  • Extremely adjustable
  • High quality build
  • Great price

Cons

  • 6'+ individuals might have comfort issues
  • Body could be slightly wider

Bondage Padded Barrel Horse (A Great Product For Spanking & Restraints)

Compared to the other types of benches on this list, this one requires a lot less physical strength to stay attached. The smooth and cylindrical design means that once you've been strapped in to any of the 22 attachment points you just need to tighten up the restraints and you'll be stuck like white on rice.

Something that stands out to me most about this is just how sturdy it is when in use, no matter what position we've tried it doesn't ever feel like it can do anything to jostle around the aluminum frame.

I'd say this is a good choice for people who want a bench as part of their bondage furniture collection but don't want to worry about how long they'll be able to comfortably use it. The cylindrical design makes it all too easy to relax when necessary without falling off.

When it comes to overall diameter it's two feet wide, more than enough to satisfy anyone who wants to put the pleasure into their pleasure dungeon.

Pros

  • Comfortably padded
  • More attachment points than you'll need
  • Unmatched sturdiness

Cons

  • Long shipping
  • Height can't be customized

BDSM Tables

As opposed to a chair or a bench, a table serves to add a useful & large platform for you to incorporate any amount of your favorite bondage accessories. If it's flat, long, and you can be tied down to it then it's probably a bondage table. They're fun for both genders as many give unrestricted access to the genitals from many different angles while maintaining an overall comfortable environment. Like all things bondage you can expect a lot of variance between tables, some have some very specific kinks in mind while others try their best to be as generalized as possible.

Liberator Black Label Central Stage (My Favorite BDSM Table)

I'm happy to say that for this category my favorite item is inexpensive, extremely functional, and also quite versatile. It's a table that's very durable made from a memory-foam like material covered with a machine washable cover.

There are six different places to attach your bondage restraints to to keep your body secure to the comfy bottom.

Those who are fans of jury-rigging their own gear will be a fan of the Central Stage since if you don't want to use it on the ground it works great placed on top of a suitably sturdy piece of otherwise innocent furniture. Since it isn't made from wood or metal it's one of the lightest items on the list.

Pros

  • Extremely comfortable
  • Attractive to the eye
  • Six attachment points

Cons

  • Memory foam isn't for everyone
  • Might need more setup for intense use

BDSM Crosses & Stockades

No dungeon is complete without some extra accessories to help coax the fun along. That's where a good, durable cross can come in. At their core any stockade or cross is just there to help keep someone tied in while still allowing them a fair bit of overall freedom. They are usually in the shape of an X, not the shape of a T like what happened to that famous fella about two thousand years ago. If you're going to be seeing any wooden bondage furniture, this is when it'll come out. This stuff is actually dungeon worthy, so be forewarned. Remember, BDSM play has a lot to do with the exchange of power between two involved parties, being able to make that exchange within a dungeon requires a variety of furniture. When it comes to items useful for keeping someone restrained without restricting your access to them, stockades & crosses are king.

Triangle St. Andrew's Cross (A Fantastic Sex Cross)

The unique hourglass shape of this cross is what makes it so worthwhile in my opinion, since they were able to add way more places for you to hook in your restraints.

There's 14 different steel hooks to attach to, any other style leaves you open to the risk you won't be able to experience a proper range of useful body positions.

This is what makes it one of the more worthwhile options, nobody wants to enter a dungeon they can't even get set up inside of. It's a bit pricey but next to making one yourself or drilling hooks into the wall it's a great place to attach some gear to.

It should be mentioned that this really does function as great bondage furniture since I never once felt as if it was going to move too much or fall over while in use. It's simply too heavy and significant to do so.

Overall I find it comfortable since if I want a wider range of motion it's just a matter of using restraints with more give and using a different hook than initially.

Pros

  • Tons of attachment points
  • Allows for upright BDSM
  • Sturdy & stable

Cons

  • Pricy
  • Isn't easy to move around

Medieval Dungeon Wood Stockade (Our Favorite Bondage Stockade)

Complete with metal chains and trim next to the wooden construction, there's few other kinds of bondage furniture that let you really feel locked up and controlled quite like a stockade does. There's a hole for the head as well as the arms, make sure to keep a blindfold close by to really hammer home the punishment aspect and you have a winning hand.

What I like most about this option is just how much extra bondage gear comes along with it. There's a blindfold and a flogger next to a few other cool goodies.

Also included is everything you'll need to attach the stockade to your ceiling, so it's honestly pretty compelling for the price we offered. It should be noted that some leather inserts are included to make it a lot more comfortable to be stuck in for long periods of time, plus there's no risk of splinters.

We've used it to create feelings of soreness in my arms to better play into a submissive role, it isn't usually the main course for us but a valuable side stop on our trip to orgasm land.

Pros

  • Very immersive
  • Constraining yet safe
  • Extras in the box

Cons

  • Needs to be mounted
  • Occasionally out of stock for periods of time

Medieval Dungeon Ankle Stockades (Our Favorite Leg Binds)

Maybe you're fixing to keep someone under your lock in key with all four limbs for a true change of power dynamics.

That's when these ankle stockades come in handy. I like them because they completely restrict my freedom of movement whenever I'm placed inside, I have no choice but to sit on my butt for comfort purposes while my husband figures out how the rest of the encounter will proceed.

The wood is actually pretty high quality too, it really does seem like a medieval disciplinary tool.

There's some leather guards around the ankle & wrist holes too, if there weren't I'd imagine my squirming would have left me with some nasty marks even the most dedicated of aftercare couldn't get rid of easily. Safety is important during BDSM, don't buy items that don't sweat the simple stuff!

Even someone as adventurous as me found a few new positions to try out thanks to this stockade, so I just couldn't not include it in my big list of bondage furniture.

Pros

  • Great for squatting BDSM
  • Fair price based on quality & materials
  • Fun, unique positions when used

Cons

  • No standing upright
  • Could be uncomfortable to some

Bondage Slings

Even people who don't go all in on bondage furniture tend towards a bondage sling at some point in time. They're not all that different from usual sex swings, just usually a bit more hardcore. That means steel chains instead of standard fabric and a lot more durability overall to boot. This increase in price is directly related to the fact that bondage furniture needs to be able to handle stress and roughness.

Leather Web Style Sling (Our Favorite BDSM Sling)

Few toys I mention have the distinction of being featured on TV, those with a keen eye for television will notice this exact toy featured in American Horror Story. I won't lie, I haven't seen the show, but this sling is in there somewhere. I'd imagine it's because of how intimidatingly bondage related this sling looks. The metal chains make it all but impossible for the sling to break while in use no matter how rough things get.

When it comes to the sling itself, it's made from tough leather that feels visceral on the skin but in my experience any of the marks it does leave are short lived and only contribute to the experience overall.

I like it because I don't think we could ever break it as well as the fact that it makes a very comfy hammock to lay down in during extended bondage play.

Useful bondage furniture isn't always easy to find, so I'm glad that there are slings available. It's just nice being able to have a dedicated item you know you won't need tons of extra bells nad whistles to enjoy even if you do happen to have them laying around.

Pros

  • Fits the BDSM aesthetic
  • Build for rough use
  • Somehow still relatively comfortable

Cons

  • Costs more than fabric swings
  • Requires planning for mounting/putting from a stand

Where To Buy BDSM/Bondage Furniture

There's a few different online stores that we've shopped at in the past to buy all of our bondage furniture and other BDSM related products.

Here are our top recommended BDSM stores:

#1. Stockroom

Stockroom is one of the few dedicated BDSM merchandising stores out there. I'm not super impressed with their website itself but you can't always expect the best from stores that cater to a very specific niche.

The products themselves are very clearly for the BDSM obsessed with just about every kind of kinky play having some kind of option somewhere within the site. That's where Stockroom shines over other options, this isn't just a haphazardly thrown together "BDSM" section of your local sex store.


#2. Lovehoney

Lovehoney is one of the best generalized online sex toys out there. With Amazon being filled with knock-off or unsafe toys Lovehoney fills in quite nicely.

Lots of the more generalized stuff I recommend for BDSM comes from Lovehoney. Extra restraints, a few odds and ends, that kind of thing. So far they haven't disappointed me when it comes to both items both bondage furniture & beyond.


#3. Liberator

Liberator specializes in sex furniture in general, so it only stands to reason some of their items would be geared towards bondage.

In general they make items made from a memory foam like material covered in a very durable and easy to clean outer shell. So their products are light as well as comfortable but also built to last. Their Esse chaisse is what proved to my husband and I that furniture built around sex could be more than just a gimmick.

DIY Bondage Furniture

Besides buying used bondage furniture (gross!), the most cost effective way to make a sex dungeon of your own is to repurpose available furniture around you. There are a few different things to keep in mind though. Furniture was made with a specific purpose in mind, typically not BDSM related. If you plan on bracing your entire body weight against something or attaching restraints to it with the intent of some minor struggle, you have to be able to trust that piece of bondage furniture to not crumble under the stress.

The simplest ways to turn existing furniture into bondage furniture is just buy buying the right set of basic bondage restraints and attaching them to your bed frame/bed posts. For anyone with a raised bed, some kits allow you to place your restraints underneath while letting the bet itself do all of the bracing.

Final Thoughts

If you are a baby to the world of BDSM you might find a lot of this stuff overwhelming, I can't say I blame you. Actual bondage furniture is mostly the realm of experienced people who have more than just a passing contact with this kind of sexual play.

A huge part of bondage is being able to fully commit to the experience in every single way, however. These types of purpose built furniture are mostly for those who are no stranger to the search for more satisfying power exchange style sexual encounters. When you don't have to worry about the furniture breaking or how you're going to keep yourself/your partner strapped in then you truly have the ability to go all in for supreme gratification. That's exactly why people are willing to pay the seemingly high prices for these items, bondage furniture just makes better bondage possible, period.
