We absolutely love sex swings! If you're a couple and are interested in a little fun and experimentation, they open up a huge range of new and interesting sexual positions that would generally not be possible unless you're both gymnasts or you happen to live in outer space.

The gentle, anatomically designed support and experience of almost weightlessness a sex swing offers gives the opportunity to concentrate directly on your partner and the sex, rather than being focused on maneuvering into the right position to enjoy the new sensations a different position brings.

Until fairly recently they were not widely available and tended to be very expensive, however prices have now come down a lot which is great news and we aim to give an overview of what's out there to help you choose the best swing.

Featured Sex Swing

A relative newcomer to the market, the excellent Bondage Boutique Deluxe Fetish Sex Swing from Lovehoney (pictured left) is the pick of the bunch currently available in the UK. Retailing at just £50.00 it's fantastic value and the build quality exceeds even that of the hugely popular Fetish Fantasy Sex Swing which retails at around £90 and was the UK's number one selling swing for many years.

Apart from the extremely lightweight price tag and reassuringly solid construction, this model benefits from being a truly free hanging swing that allows you to sit or recline in a fully supported position underneath the heavy duty metal spreader bar. This is one of the key components to look out for in a sex swing because the cheaper models (which are all door mounted swings) are very restrictive which defeats the purpose of a sex swing because they don't allow you to hang freely in balance - take a look at the economical but somewhat limited Fetish Fantasy Door Swing for £29.95 to see what we mean.

With comfort in mind, the soft but supportive faux velvet support straps are wider than on many swings which helps reduce pressure on the bottom, back, legs and feet/ankles and all contact points are internally padded with thick firm foam that offers support rather than soft foam that doesn't help spread the weight. There are five pairs of buckles that allow excellent adjustability for different positions and different sized users and the swing is suspended on a spring which helps both comfort and usability.

We think this is by far the best value swing available at the moment and offers a range of features and high standard construction not previously seen in a swing of this price. But don’t take our word for it, have a look at the growing number of five star customer reviews at Lovehoney.

Pros

    • A real swing that allows you to hang in balance not just a simple harness with a hook.
    • Enough height and width clearance for all users.
    • Extra wide straps with five pairs of buckles for excellent adjustability.

  • Cons

    • We found the faux velvet support straps a little warm sometimes.
