If back pain is one of the biggest things getting in the way of your sex life then there’s no doubt about it: you need a dedicated sex couch! Like other types of sex furniture (such as sex pillows), these couches are designed to provide support to your body throughout your sexual encounters, taking the strain off of your back during intercourse. This allows you to experiment with positions that would have previously been off-the-table, enjoy increased stamina, and opens your “bedroom” options up to basically any room with a flat floor. From the models you should consider to how to use your new sex furniture, we’ve covered everything you’ll need to know about sex couches below!

Testing and Rating Sex Couch Products

There are many more options to choose from than just the sex couches we’ve listed below. However, the ones listed all have something in common: they fared well n the “Bedbible Rating” test! Regardless of what type of toy/product we’re testing, they’re all judged on the same criteria: design, ease of use, and quality. “Design” refers to the physical and functional design of the product. “Ease of use” refers to how well that design translates into real-world results, i.e. how easy it is to use! “Quality” encompasses the build quality of the product, including the materials used as well as the expected longevity of the product in question. If a toy scores well in all of these categories then you know it’s a good toy! When added & averaged, these individual criteria come together to provide a product with its “Bedbible Rating”.

What to Look for in a Good Sex Couch

If you’ve never shopped for sex furniture then you might not be 100% sure what you should look for. Not to worry: we’ve created a short list of the six main things you should consider before making a purchase!

  • Materials – This is the first aspect that you should consider. Remember, the material used has a major influence on your experience using the sex couch. If the material is sticky, scratchy, or uncomfortable then your new sex couch won’t be much fun to use, even if everything else is perfect! You should also consider the material used for any attachments (such as integrated dildos) and check for any allergens.
  • Shape – Some sex couches are designed for dual-person use, whereas others are more suited for solo sessions. The shape of your couch should match its intended purpose.
  • Size – You’ll need to consider the measurements (mainly height) of you and your partner: is your new sex couch going to be large enough? Most sex couches can support a lot of weight, but if you are worried about the couch not supporting you and/or your partner properly, check the weight limit just to be sure!
  • Discretion – Depending on the couch in question, your new piece of furniture might be able to simply blend into the background of your room! This is especially true if it looks like a beanie bag or could pass for an ottoman. However, you should consider any visible D-rings or branding, as these could be a dead giveaway to any guest with a sharp eye!
  • Storage – If your sex couch is inflatable then storage shouldn’t be an issue, but if not, then you’ll need to find enough space to store it. Assuming you’re not trying to place it out in the open, we’d recommend looking at the measurements of the item and trying to find a place (such as a closet) to store your sex couch before purchasing it.
  • Price – Inflatable sex couches tend to be more friendly to your wallet, but non-inflatable models are usually higher quality and have more longevity. You should compare the price tag of a sex couch to its expected longevity to see if you’d save money in the long-term, or if paying more upfront is a better option. Many times, financing options are available so these might be worth considering.

FAQ

How much should I spend on a sex couch?
For a fully-fledged piece of furniture, you're looking at approximately $500. With that, you'll be able to get a quality sex couch that should hopefully double as regular furniture!
How will my sex couch be delivered?
BedBible only recommends websites that will deliver with plain, discreet packaging, so you won't have to worry about judgement from your mailman. As for assembly, it varies based on couch, but many come fully made with just the cover needing to be added!
Will people know I have a sex couch?
They might be able to make an educated guess, but only if they know what a sex couch is. You'll find most people are too mature to outright ask if it's a sex couch, but they're easy enough to disguise, and designed to be as discreet as possible!
What is the best sex couch?
That's for you to decide! We've compiled the research, so you can make an informed decision based on your specific needs. Consider height, positions, storage space, and budget when shopping for your perfect match.
Do I need to get a specialized sex couch?
You don’t *need* to get a specialized sex couch, but having one could do wonders for your sex life. Since this type of furniture is designed to support your entire body in a variety of sex positions, a sex couch is one of those items that could either open your options up to more demanding positions, prevent back pain, or both!

What is a sex couch?

A sex couch is a piece of furniture specifically designed to relieve pressure and pain during sex positions that can be uncomfortable on the body. Many are equipped with restraint clips for bondage play or have built-in connectors for using your favorite toys. The best part is, sex couches are designed to be neutral and blend in with the rest of your furniture, so you won't have any uncomfortable explaining to do when guests come to visit! High-end sex couches can get pretty expensive, but for those on a tight budget, there are plenty of inflatable options available as well.

Conclusion

In theory, this is a solidly designed couch. Unfortunately, the irremovable PVC dildo embedded in the toy is not body-safe, and should only be used with a condom to protect from bacterial infections. This plastic material is extremely rigid and can be uncomfortable to penetrate, and the inability to remove the included dildo limits your options significantly. That being said, the couch is budget-friendly and easy to store discreetly, so if you’re a fan of rigid dildos and okay with using a condom, this could be a good option for you.

This uniquely designed sex couch from Liberator is more than just a beanbag. The Zeppelin Cocoon from Liberator is a faux-fur lined, foam-filled couch that adjusts to your needs. Lay it flat for use as a pleasure pad, or turn it on its side and curl up on it as an upright seat for some Netflix and chill! Best of all, the Cocoon can double as a guest bed (or your own bed!), and as a comfortable seat for everyday use.

Conclusion

The Zeppelin Cocoon by Liberator is an interesting one. It doesn’t get much more luxurious than a $500 faux-fur lined beanbag! The beanbag itself is extremely soft and comfortable, easily machine-washable, and reasonably versatile. It could be great for a luxurious solo session, or some lazy morning sex, but in terms of actual position adjustment, it doesn’t particularly bring anything to the table that a regular beanbag wouldn’t. That being said, it does look comfortable.

Conclusion

The Esse is a staple of sex furniture everywhere. So much so, that Liberator has since come out with over eight variations on the original model (this one), so if you’re interested in the design, but would like to attach restraints, you might want to think about the black label Esse, or any from their premium range of bondage sex couches. That being said, the original Esse is an excellent addition to your sex furniture collection, that doubles as a chaise lounge when not in use. The foam base is ideal for sex, as it is strong and secure, but has some give to contour to your body.

Perfect Positions for Your Sex Couch

Having a sex couch can make your regular positions more fun, and fun positions your regular! Here are some position suggestions that are perfect for a sex couch (and a standard couch!).

Doggy

Doggy

Doggy style just got a lot more comfortable. Sex couches allow the receiver to fully extend their legs and grind against the couch for added pleasure. The giver can stand fully upright, which relieves pressure on the knees.

Pretzel Dip

Pretzel Dip

Pretzel Dip

Time for a fun one! The pretzel dip involves the partner being penetrated lying on their right side as the penetrator straddles the right leg. The receiver should then curl their left leg over to givers left side. This achieves the same penetration as doggy style, but adds a level of intimacy as you’re facing each other.

How to clean a sex couch

It's as important to clean your sex couch as it is to clean the rest of your toys! With all the action they'll be seeing (hopefully!), you'll want to keep them in top condition. It's best to clean immediately after use so that bacteria doesn't linger, stains don't set in, and it's ready to go the next time you're in the mood. Sex couches come in a variety of materials and styles, so make sure you check the instruction manual or manufacturer's guidelines to ensure the best quality clean. Removable covers can usually be washed and dried like any piece of clothing, but you'll want to make sure they're tumble dryer safe, and keep them on a gentle cycle. For extra protection, you can put your cover in a laundry-safe bag to ensure it doesn't fade or get damaged. Sex couches without removable covers can be carefully wiped down with soap and water, or body-safe antibacterial cleaning product.

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.
