    How We Tested Bondage Swings

    What to Think About Before Buying a Bondage Swing 

    Although the purchasing process itself is quite simple, there are a few things you’ll want to consider carefully before making a selection.  installation process: can you mount a swing from the ceiling space available? Perhaps a standalone mounting system would work better? After you’ve figured that out, you’ll also need to consider which type(s) of restraints you want, which materials you prefer (and the varying levels of comfort they provide), the weight limit of your chosen swing, and your budget. Overwhelmed? Don’t worry: we go into more detail on each of these things in the sections at the bottom of the post!

    Single Hook Vs Dual Hook

    • Single hook sex swings only require one mounting point and use a spreader bar to keep the straps far enough apart for you to fit into the swing. Unfortunately, these bars rarely extend beyond 24 inches, making them less than ideal for people with wider hips. Single hook swings also place more stress on the mounting point (since there’s only one), but some models do offer the novelty of being able to spin!
    • Dual hook swings lack the ability to spin around, but they more than makeup for this with increased safety, comfort, and mounting options. Dual hook swings attach to two separate mounting points, which can be mounted 30 or even 40 inches apart, giving your hips a lot more space to fit comfortably into. Since your weight is split between two mounting points, there is a lot less stress on either point at any time.

    When you don’t have the option of mounting hooks from the ceiling, a sex sling is probably the best option for you. Sex slings support your partner in a similar manner to a hammock, often utilizing a freestanding base that eliminates the need for wall-hook mounting points. However, this convenient setup does limit your positioning options more than a single or double-hook sex swing.

    FAQ

    Do I need to buy a stand for my bondage swing?
    Not necessarily! The majority of swings are ceiling mountable or door mountable. That being said, a stand might be something to consider if you want something portable, or if you can't mount on a door or ceiling effectively They can cost a fair amount, but the safety is worth it.
    Do I need to buy a bondage specific swing?
    A bondage swing is tailor-made for bondage, so if you want that built in support, they're a good investment! However, you can also buy a sex swing and pair it with a bondage kit, as suggested above.
    Do I need to install a ceiling hook for my bondage swing?
    Generally speaking, the answer is probably. There are a number of other mounting options listed above, such as door and stand mounts. But, if you're planning on making good use of your swing and don't want to invest in a stand, ceiling installation isn't too difficult, and there are plenty of guides available!
    I'm plus-size, what are my bondage swing options?
    If your weight (or your weight combined with your partners) exceeds the weight limit of many swings, there are multiple options! Sex slings will often have higher weight limits, as the pressure is spread across more equally. The same principle applies to dual mounted swings!
    What makes bondage swings special?
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For some, bondage swings represent an unnecessary investment. For others, bondage swings represent the ability to bring fantasies to life, enjoy better sex with fewer physical limitations, and enjoy some light-heated BDSM play!
    Can I make my own bondage swing out of rope?
    We do not recommend making your own sex toys and always recommend that you purchase purpose-made sex toys from a reputable shop. We are in no way responsible for any harm caused due to the use or sharing of these DIYs. You are 100% responsible for the outcome should you choose to make your own sex toys.

    What is a bondage swing?

    A sex swing is a specialised swing that typically hangs from the ceiling (or frame) and suspends one partner, which can be great for achieving difficult positions with ease. The pressure of certain positions is shifted to the swing rather than the body, allowing you to experience the full pleasure of sex without any soreness. A bondage swing is a sex swing designed specifically for bondage, and will typically have additional clips and mechanisms to support restraint play.

Especially if you’re just curious about sex swings and want to have some fun.

    But for that sort of item, the price tag is a little steep.

Overall, this is a good piece of kit that you can certainly make work for you, especially if you’re limited on space.

    How to stay safe with BDSM swings

    Bondage swings can be intimidating. But they don’t have to be! Make sure you read those instructions cover to cover, and follow these tips to stay safe in your swing.

    Read the instructions!

    Read the instructions!

    Read the instructions!

    I know I just said this, but it can’t be said enough –  carefully read the instructions to make sure your swing is installed safely and correctly! You should also pay close attention to any instructions that come with your sex swing. Some swings need to be installed in certain places, or hung at specific heights. Failing to follow these could make your swing unsafe to use.

    Springs

    Springs

    Springs

    You may see tips online or in reviews to remove the springs – but this is highly ill-advised. Some sex swings come with attached springs, and often might recommend that you remove the spring. The springs act as a shock absorber and will naturally absorb the impact of any rigorous activities!

    Weight limit

    Weight limit

    Weight limit

    Exceeding the weight limit will put a significant amount of strain on the fixings and straps of your swing. This is one of the fastest ways to lead to accident, as your swing could easily snap and drop you in a vulnerable position.

    Double check

    Double check

    Double check

    Once you’re sure everything is in good shape, press your hand against the seat/sling and put a small amount of pressure on it. This shouldn’t be your entire body weight, but enough to ensure the swing is safe to support weight. They’re designed to do this, so as long as everything is installed correctly, you can go ahead!

    Bondage swing positions

    Many sex positions can be replicated on a sex swing for a little extra oomph. This goes for bondage positions as well: try handcuffing the receiver, using a spreader bar, or introducing collars and leads to ‘standard’ positions like missionary, doggy, or reverse cowgirl. These positions also work wonderfully on a bondage swing! Here are some tips on how to get into that groove.

    Taking turns

    Taking turns

    Taking turns

    Try taking turns with your lover while you wear a blindfold, and surrender yourself to their deepest desires. A bondage swing adds a new and dimension to this – especially if you like a feeling of helplessness. It is especially important to remember when doing this that consent is ongoing, and you/your partner should establish a safeword beforehand!

    Swinging cowgirl

    This classic position on a swing gives the receiver even more control! The penetrator should position the straps so that they can lie back, then let your partner climb on top of them. Once she’s up, she can ride you like a real cowgirl! Just be sure to check the weight limit on your swing before you both get on there!

    Doggy style

    Doggy style in a swing takes so much pressure off the knees for the receiver. And, if you’re into it, hog tying your sub (safely!) in mid-air can put a seriously kinky twist on this tried-and-true position.

    How to Choose the Best Bondage Swing for You

    There are many things to consider when buying your first, or just a new bondage swing. Be sure to keep these tips in mind when you’re browsing!

    Weight Limit

    Weight Limit

    Weight Limit

    When choosing a bondage swing, you’re going to want to consider the weight limit. Be sure to consider the weight of both partners combined in order to get the most out of your bondage swing! Adding at least an extra 100 kg is ideal. This gives you plenty of wiggle room if you put on some extra weight, and can help with the forces and stress you might put on the swing while using it. If the bondage swing doesn’t support your weight, you’re not going to have a good time, but remember that you don’t have to change your weight to find a toy that works for you!

    Budget

    Budget

    Budget

    Some of the more advanced bondage swings are going to cost a pretty penny. Make sure to set a budget when you start looking, based on how much use you want to get out of the swing, and the quality you expect your swing to be. Cheaper doesn’t always mean worse, but it can mean lower quality material – so keep an eye out for sales and make sure to do your research! A good quality, budget  bondage swing is about $150, for reference.

    Installation

    Installation

    Installation

    There are many things to consider in the installation of a bondage swing. First, you’re going to want to be realistic about the size of your living space when ordering your bondage swing. If you’re extremely limited, you might want to consider an ‘over the door’ swing that can easily hook over the door frame to save you space. This also works if you want something easy to tuck away – especially if privacy is a concern.

    Renting?

    Renting?

    Renting?

    Finally, you’ll want to consider whether you’ll actually be allowed to install the swing. If you’re renting, you may want to check with your landlord that it’s okay to drill into the ceiling or wall to install your bondage swing. You don’t have to tell them what it’s for – just say you want to put in a hanging planter! And then maybe get a hanging planter if they visit frequently.  If you can’t find an appropriate place to mount your sex swing, then it’s usually best to get one with a stand.

    How to use a bondage swing

    The sky’s the limit with bondage swings! Here are just a few ways you can make the most of yours.

    How to use a bondage swing

    Couples play

    Couples play

    This is the most obvious one, but it’s what your swing was most likely designed for. A bondage swing can be a great way to introduce something new to your sex life, enhance tried-and-true positions, or even bring to sex parties with a trusty stand!

    BDSM

    How to use a bondage swing

    These bondage swings are specifically designed with BDSM in mind. Tie your sub up and indulge in both of your wildest fantasies. You can add any number of toys to the equation for your own enjoyment – the possibilities are endless.

    How to use a bondage swing
    How to use a bondage swing

    Solo

    Solo

    Against all odds, a sex swing can be used solo! As long as you’re not restraining yourself (this can lead to some… uncomfortable situations). Just recline on the swing and pleasure yourself with your hands or your favourite toy. Or, if you’ve got the upper arm strength, sit upright and lower yourself onto a suction cup dildo for a workout you won’t forget!

    How to clean a bondage swing

    Just like any other sex toy, your bondage swing will need proper care and attention after every use. While a bondage swing may look like an intimidating contraption, it's really not that difficult to clean! You can put any fabric parts into a standard washing bag, throw that in a washing machine on your standard cycle, and dry as you usually would. Swings including leather components like many of these bondage swings can be washed with antibacterial soap and water, then hung up to dry. Be sure to clean regularly (ideally before and after every use) to prevent dirt and bacteria building up on your swing, causing some nasty infections down the line. You want to get dirty, but not in that way!

    Porous
    materials

    Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.

    Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.

    Non-propous
    materials

    Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.

    Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.

    The toys with electrical
    components

    If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
