The Best Sex Furniture For Couples:
Our Favorite Pieces Of Sex Furniture
Written by: Angela Watson | Updated: September 1st, 2019
Like many couples, my husband & I enjoy using various pieces of sex furniture into our sex life to help us hit a number of our favorite positions.
Over the years, we've amassed a fairly impressive collection of pieces of furniture for sex, in the end, it's all about the right support and leverage.
Many of these items currently reside in our bedroom (we store many of them under our bed, but a few of them that I'll cover later in this article practically never leave our bed because they're soft and comfy, it just makes sense.
We've bought everything from sex pillows, sex chairs, sex chaise lounges, sex swings, you name it. Think of a piece of furniture and put the word sex in front of it and there's a decent chance we've tried one.
In all seriousness, we've invested a fair bit of money over the years into our collection of sex furniture and made many mistakes along the way. This article is created with the intent to help prevent you from making some of the wasted purchases we've made over the years and help you find a quality piece of sex furniture depending on your need, within your budget.
What Is Sex Furniture?
When it comes to the term "sex furniture", this is a pretty damn broad category. The type of furniture you'll want to purchase will depend on your needs and what types of positions you enjoy most during sex or positions you'd like help achieving.
Unless you're creative and have the drive to create your own DIY sex furniture Macgyvered out household pillows and furniture, real sex furniture can be expensive. However, it doesn't have to be. The truth is that many of the best pieces of furniture for sex that I've experimented with really weren't all that expensive.
Some of the furniture that we've bought that was less than satisfactory and my goal is to help you steer clear of these kinds of products.
Types Of Sex Furniture
There are plenty of different types of sex furniture. Here are some of my favorite types:
Sex Pillows & Wedges: One of the best pieces of sex furniture to get started are sex pillows and wedges. They also happen to be a favorite of mine. Pillows and wedges are typically the cheapest type of sex furniture to buy and are by far the easiest to store. One of the best parts about "sex pillows" is that they can also be used as normal pillows when they're not in use. Small and perfect for supporting the lumbar regions of the black, don't underestimate what sex pillow can do.
Sex Chairs: Sex chairs come in many different shapes and sizes. There are a few different categories of sex chairs including chaise lounges, stools and more. Your normal furniture but with a kinky twist to make sex a bit easier than if you had used the non-sex variety of said furniture.
Sex Chaise Lounges: Technically chaise lounges are a type of chair but nevertheless I thought they deserved their own category on this list, they're pretty well developed.
Sex Stools: Another sub-category of sex chairs is sex stools. The concept behind them is quite simple and doesn't take very much experience or knowledge to figure out. My husband loves using our see-through sex stool as he puts it he "likes the way my bum presses against the base."
Sex Swings: Last but not least on this list is sex swings. Now, this is where the list caters a bit more towards the BDSM lovers out there, swings are an incredible way to take your sex to new heights. As a grown woman my love for swings died long ago when I grew up from being a child, now that I'm older I've found a whole new use for swings, a much kinkier one.
Our Favorite Pieces Of Sex Furniture
Without delaying any more time, here are my favorite pieces of furniture for sex:
One of my favorite types of sex furniture is the sex pillow/wedge. The reason being is that it allows for easier g-spot stimulation.
To hit the g-spot during sex, I normally have to angle my body in a relatively uncomfortable position to achieve g-spot stimulation. This is very hard to do without the use of something to place under my lower back to angle my hips backward.
By using a sex pillow such as the ones I'm about to mention, my husband is able to hit my g-spot during sex much easier.
The reason they sometimes call sex pillows, "sex wedges" is because you are able to use the pillow as a wedge providing leverage which allows for easy access to the g-spot.
You gotta love science, right?
The Dame Pillo (My Favorite Sex Pillow/Wedge)
The Pillo by Dame is without a doubt my favorite sex pillow/wedge.
The reason I choose the Pillo over other sex pillows is because it's firm enough to support my weight without being too squishy, while also being very soft to the touch.
More importantly, when placed under my lower back, it provides the necessary leverage for my husband to stimulate my g-spot during sex, which is something I'm very fond of.
The Pillo comes with an affordable price tag and well exceeds its monetary value in my opinion. It's a relatively small piece of furniture but it makes a world of difference for g-spot stimulation.
I've written a full review from my experience using the Pillo by Dame, read more here.
WETPIA Multifunction Sex Position Enhancer (Our Favorite Sex Chair)
A big focus for any sex chair is that it needs to, well, not get in the way of sex whatsoever. It needs to provide the support necessary to hold body weight but also not impair range of motion.
So that's why the WETPIA chair stands out for us: in functionality and comfort. Its pretty sturdy being made of carbon steel and there's even a foam layer on top so there's no cold metal to brush up against. Where you can "sit" as if it was a regular chair is two elastic strips instead of a solid plate, that's essentially what opens up dozens of new positions with this thing.
It doesn't take up a lot of space, yet makes about fifty different sex positions way easier to handle for longer periods of time.
Sex Chaise Lounges
The Liberator Esse (Our Favorite Sex Chaisse Lounge)
Part of why we bought the Esse was not just for the sexual applications but we both thought it actually looked pretty sleek and that it would go well in a more modern room in our house.
It's a pretty good lounger in its own right to be completely honest, but that's not why we're talking about it now, is it? Mix and match the two added wedges all while straddling or climbing on the chair to invent sex positions on the fly to really take advantage of the Liberator Esse.
It gets moved around the house lots, we personally have a game where we think up interesting ways to have sex that should hit the spot better but aren't possible without such a uniquely shaped chair.

UpCircleSeven Aerial Yoga Swing Set (Our Favorite Sex Swing)
Don't let the yoga swing label fool you, this thing is built just like the sex variety of swing and does a great job at it. In fact, I like it because it's a bit cheaper than other sex swings because I imagine there's a bit of markup there.
The thing I quickly came to realize after buying my first "sex swing" was that yoga swings and sex swings are basically the exact same thing just with different prices and packaging.
This particular yoga swing functions perfectly as a sex swing. There's more than just one or two places to grab on to and it's a pretty fun addition to any room. You will have to secure it to the roof though. It's not a bad option for fitness or even as a convenient hammock, so you might be able to play it off if you position it strategically. Luckily for us, that's not a concern.
For some Cirque Du Soleil kinkiness, I choose this swing.
I've written a sex swing buyers guide if you'd like to learn about the other options.
Pipedream Fetish: The Incredible Sex Stool (My Favorite Sex Stool)
A fantastic example of simple yet elegant, as well as a fantastic example of a pretty decent footrest.
Jokes aside, the sex stool is perfect for those positions that a sex pillow is just a bit too plush to handle. The two strips that make up the stool itself are very flexible which makes for a bit of a trampoline-like effect that really gets me going.
It's perfect for when we don't want to get too fancy but aren't going to settle for below-average or even average sex. It doesn't have to be on the ground to work, either, the amount of creativity we have with our sexual configurations is part of what gets me off at this point, second to the sex itself of course.
Sex furniture can definitely be a costly investment and isn't as cheap as say buying a sex toy. That being said, I can definitely say that our collection of sex furniture has without a doubt enhanced the quality of sex in our marriage and that alone is well worth the cost to acquire it all.
If you're thinking of incorporating sex furniture into your sex life, any of the products above will serve you well. I feel confident recommending them since I own all of them and they've served me very well.
For the folks that read this far, I just want to personally say thank you for doing so. Your time means a lot to us!
