And the best part is that you can use either a single or dual mount sex swing, and even your favorite bondage swing. However, this sex swing mounting tip isn’t for the faint of heart.

And it requires a little bit of fearlessness.

That’s because we are taking this swing session into the yard! So, if you happen to have a swing set frame, hammock frame or a bench swing frame, you already have a way to mount a sexy-time swing!

Door Jamb and Over-The-Door Sex Swings

The easiest and least expensive way to hang a sex swing is by using a door jamb swing or one listed as over-the-door. Both are essentially the same thing.

Or, convert your dual mount sex swing into a door swing by grabbing a set of easy-to-use door mounts.

Best yet, this type of swing is non-permanent, relatively inexpensive, and you can take it with you when you travel. So, how do you install this type of sex swing?

The answer is to hang the straps (which have plastic barbells attached) over the top of a door. Then, simply close the door, making sure it latches.

And viola, you have installed a sex swing with no permanent holes or hardware!

Using a Door and Pull-Up Bar to Hang a Sex Swing

The Pull-Up Bar Method

Another way to hang a sex swing without permanent hardware, while still having the portability of a door jamb swing, is to use a pull-up bar. Simply put, pull-up bars attach to the top of any door, while holding a great deal of weight.

From there, clip your sex swing to the pull-up bar. Now, what makes this a preferred way to install a sex swing, is that you can use single or double mount swings.

For instance, the Wildside Sex Swing is a nice sex swing that is extremely comfortable, first most bodies and is adjustable. And if you want to know more, go check out my review.

In the end, you have more space between yourself and the door. Plus, when you’re finished having fun, just take down the swing and the bar, and store them for the next naughty night.

Using Beam Straps

The next way to install a sex swing is a bit limited, but a brilliant method if you have exposed ceiling beams. Or, if you want to take your sex life to a whole new level of excitement, use the beams of a sturdy pergola or picnic shelter.

So, simply use 1 or 2 beam straps, depending on how many mounts your swing has. Next throw the strap over the beam, making sure the it’s laying flat, and clip your sex swing to the metal D-rings.

Then, have a night of pure, unadulterated fun! And when you’re finished, everything uninstalls in a flash for easy, discreet storage.

Best of all, you can use a dual mount swing with both straps or a single strap and an exciting, single mount swing like the Fetish Fantasy Bondage Swing.

How to Hang a Sex Swing Using a Stand

Utilizing a Swing Stand

The next best way to set up a sex swing is by using one of the many sex swing stands available. That way you have a sturdy place to have fun, without having to permanently place mounts in your ceiling or walls.

Now, we absolutely love the Trinity Vibes Ultimate Swing Stand, as it allows for single and dual hook swings as well as sex slings. Furthermore, if you want a little more bondage in your swing play, the Screamer Sex Swing Stand includes several extra rings for wrist and ankle cuffs.

And if you want to take your play to dizzying heights, try one of the many, single mount, spinning sex swings available. So, all you need to do is assemble the stand by following the directions.

Best of all, swing stands include all of the hardware you need to put them together, as well as the hex wrench too! Now the only downside to using a stand is that they take up quite a bit of floor space.

Therefore, you’ll want to use a room that’s large enough to accommodate the base measurements of the stand.

The Door to Door Hanging Method

  • Not Permanent
  • Difficulty Rating: Moderate
  • Supplies Needed: None

Next, this method of installing a sex swing requires two doors, in close proximity to one another. That’s because we are going to use a door swing, only this time, you’ll have a wider area in which to play.

For instance, if you have a closet door next to your bedroom door, you can use both for this installation. So, use an over-the-door swing like this Special Edition Door Jam Sex Sling.

Or, if you prefer to utilize a swing you already have, grab yourself the Screamer Door Mounting System. Next, throw one mounting strap over door 1, and the other over door 2.

Then, close each door, making sure they both latch firmly. And there you have it, a door to door hanging installation for your sex swing!

Hang a Sex Swing in a Hallway

  • Permanent
  • Difficulty Rating: Moderate to difficult
  • Supplies Needed: 2-4 ceiling hook eye plates, long screws, screwdriver and stud finder

The next way to put up a sex swing works perfectly for those who have a home with a hallway. Now, this is a permanent installation, however, you can easily hang pictures over the hardware to hide them, if you choose.

So, to install your swing in the hallway, you’ll need to use a stud finder to locate the studs on either side of the hall, and at the highest point you can find. Next, install 1 ceiling hook eye plate to each wall, directly across from the other, using long screws.

Then, you can hang any dual hook sex swing, and have the entire hallway for naughty fun! We highly recommend the Screamer Dual Hook Swing for your adult pleasure.

Or, if you don’t mind using 4 ceiling hook eye plates, find lower studs and use a sexy, leather sling for more support and a hot, BDSM aesthetic.

Then, when you’re finished, unhook your swing or sling, and store it away for the next time.

How to Mount a Sex Swing on the Ceiling: Eye Screws

  • Permanent
  • Difficulty Rating: Difficult
  • Supplies Needed: 1-2 closed eye screws

Our next sex swing installation involves a more permanent solution for setting up a sex swing. And this one is easy to conceal by using a couple of fashionable, hanging chairs, when you’re not using your swing.

So, for this installation, you’ll need a ladder and a stud finder to locate a beam in your ceiling. Then, you’ll place 1 or 2 closed eye screws into the beam, a couple of feet apart.

Now, you’ll want the closed eye screws specifically, as they are much sturdier. That’s because, the open type can pull apart with repeated use.

Next, once your eye screws are in the ceiling beam, you can hook up a single or dual mount swing and have the time of your life.

However, just be sure there are no tables, lamps or nick-nacks nearby that can be kicked over in the heat of swinging passion!

Install a Sex Swing on the Ceiling 2: Hook Pad Eye Plate

  • Permanent
  • Difficulty Rating: Difficult
  • Supplies Needed: 2 ceiling hook eye plates, long screws, screwdriver

Finally, our last means of setting up a sex swing involves using ceiling hook eye plates. Again, you can easily disguise the plates by hanging plants or furniture from the plates when you’re not swinging your way to sexual bliss.

Now, for this installation, you’ll need a ladder and a stud finder to locate a beam in your ceiling. Once that is accomplished, install 1 or 2 ceiling hook eye plates, using long, wood screws.

Next, hook up the sex swing of your choice and have a blast! However, as with the previous installation, be sure there is nothing that can be kicked over and damaged while you use your sex swing.

We highly recommend the Single Whip Smart Pleasure Swing, or any heavy duty sex swing for durable, long-lasting play. Finally, be sure you have some extra, heavy duty chain, on hand, for the last two installs, just in case you have high ceilings.

Which Way Will You Install Your Sex Swing?

In the end, sex swings and mounting costs will vary. Therefore, you’ll want to choose the method and the swing that works for your budget.

Additionally, you’ll need to keep in mind your individual space, and whether you rent or own your home. That way, you won’t get on the landlord’s naughty list.
