Our Review and Rating Procedure

Nothing beats hands-on testing, so we always try to personally test products when possible (if we’ve had the opportunity to do so then you can read about it by clicking on the “Read full review” link!). However, hands-on testing isn’t the only method we use to gather information about a product. We also use manufacturer websites and real-user reviews. Using multiple sources helps prevent bias, ranging from inflated manufacturer’s claims to one-off poor user experiences. In every review, we highlight both the positives and negatives of each product, allowing you to gather all the relevant information on a single page! Every product receives a “Bedbible Rating” and a “User Ratings” score, allowing you to compare our impression to the general customer impression. We hope this will be helpful as you search for a new spanking bench!

How to Choose the Best Sex Bench for a Good Spanking!

Here are my top tips for choosing the best sex bench for your sex and spanking needs!

  • Sizing – There are two important sizes to consider here: the size of the actual bench and the size of the person who will be on it. You should also take weight limits into account.
  • Material – Common materials include microfiber, leather, vinyl, and faux fur. You should think about how messy your play is likely to get and how easy each material is to clean.
  • Restraint Points – The more restraint points you have, the more creative you can get with your bondage!
  • Storage & Disassembly – If you are tight on space, look for a table that can be disassembled or folded for storage.
  • Price – Think about what features are a priority for you and then look at what fulfils those needs and is within your budget.

A Closer Look at the Liberator Steed Spanking Bench

Liberator have really mastered the balance between comfort and kink with the Steed Spanking Bench. Made using high density foam that holds it’s shape, this spanking bench will keep your partner comfy while you go to town on their behind!

It comes complete with 12 connection points, each one with a plastic clip that’s compatible with Liberator restraints and a metal ring you can use with any restraint you like!

I’m also impressed with the fabric used to make the Steed — it’s wipe clean and moisture resistant, so you can play with peace of mind that the clean-up will be nice and easy!

Pros

  • High density foam holds it's shape
  • 12 restraint points (connecting clips and metal rings)
  • Wipe clean

Verdict

I chose the Liberator Steed as the overall best spanking bench because it ticks so many boxes and at a super reasonable price! I love that it’s comfortable to use for long periods of time, especially with the padding under the knees.

The main drawbacks I see with the Steed is that it takes up a lot of storage space and can’t be disassembled for storage, and it’s height adjustable.

Aside from that, I’m really impressed with the overall construction and love that it’s wipe clean!

A Closer Look at the Liberator Flip Ramp

I love a versatile piece of sex furniture, and the Liberator Flip Ramp is certainly that! This beautiful position aid folds out into a curvy platform that supports your body in a range of fun positions perfect for spanking!

It also folds up into a neat little cube that gives you another spanking platform and a neat, discreet way to store it!

The Flip Ramp is made of high density foam that supports your body weight and features a soft, microvelvet cover and moisture resistant lining.

Pros

  • Top quality high-density foam
  • Machine-washable covers
  • Versatile prop for sex and spanking
  • Discreet design
  • Easy to store

Cons

  • Might not support larger bodies
  • No opportunity to attach restraints

Verdict

Sex furniture is expensive and takes up a lot of space, so I really appreciate a multi-use option! The Flip Ramp is great for supported doggy-style spanking and all kinds of fun sex positions! It’s also a big plus for me that it’s discreet, easy to store and has machine washable covers, making it a low maintenance spanking bench!

However, if you are looking to restrain your partner while you play, this isn’t the best option as it doesn’t have any restraint points.

That being said, it’s the cheapest spanking bench in the review, making it a great option for those on budget.

 

Buy, if you...

  1. Want a versatile sex prop
  2. Like to get adventurous with positions
  3. Prefer a comfy, padded spanking bench
  4. Need something discreet
  5. Are short on space

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Want a full-size spanking bench
  2. Prefer a solid table-like construction
  3. Need restraint points

A Closer Look at the Obedience Extreme Sex Bench

If you’re on the hunt for a bondage spanking bench that also doubles as amazing sex furniture, look no further than the Obedience Extreme Sex Bench! This high-quality bench supports up to 400 lbs., can be adjusted to perfectly fit your partner, is padded for long-term comfort, and even allows you to move the head support section for some extra fun! All of these features come at a competitive price, striking the perfect balance between performance and pricing. If you’re ready to expand your love life beyond the bed but don’t feel ready (or inclined) to make a full-scale dungeon, take a sex-positive step in the right direction by purchasing this multi-purpose spanking bench!

Pros

  • Multiple restraint straps
  • Supports up to 400 lbs.
  • Padded for extra comfort
  • Multi-purpose

Cons

  • Not discreet
  • Requires a lot of space
  • Faux leather
  • Cost over $800

Verdict

At a little over $800 out the door, it’s not particularly accurate to call this piece “affordable sex furniture”. Still, we think you get a lot of bang for your buck, which is why we definitely recommend this spanking bench! Its high weight limit of 400 lbs. means it can support nearly any size of sexual partner, which is an issue you might run into with lower-quality furniture. The design (which fully supports your partner’s face, forearms, mid-section, and lower legs) of this bench allows you to perfectly adjust your partner’s position to your liking, opening up a world of options in terms of sexual intercourse as well as BDSM encounters. The bench also includes a wide variety of straps, which will prevent your partner from moving (and keep them safe during “fun time”!).

Buy, if you...

  1. Need a high weight limit
  2. Want a bench for sex & BDSM
  3. Enjoy multiple restraints

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Want something simple
  2. Need hooks
  3. Are on a tight budget

A Closer Look at the Padded Spanking Bench

This BDSM bench doesn’t mess around: your partner isn’t getting out of their punishment this time around! Fitted with knee rests for your sub or slave, simply use one of the many attachment points to restrict their movements or even immobilize them entirely. Polished steel and washable vinyl combine to make a heavy-duty product that won’t give (no matter how much your partner tries to escape!) and can easily be cleaned after use. Made to order, you will have to wait a bit before receiving your BDSM bench but the wait will surely be worth it: now all that’s left to decide is whether to strap your partner to the top or to bend them over the side & let them have it!

Pros

  • Over 20 attachment points
  • Easy-to-clean vinyl material
  • Padded surface
  • Made-to-order

Cons

  • Doesn’t use leather
  • Large
  • Not discrete
  • Expensive

Verdict

Our main issue with this bench is the price: at nearly $2,500, it’s way more than many people will be willing to spend. Still, you get what you pay for, and for that price, you get a made-to-order sex bench with over twenty different attachment points for restraining your partner, a sturdy steel frame, and padded vinyl surfaces for added comfort. If you want to only purchase one sex bench for the rest of your days then this bench would be a good option, since it opens up many different ways to ensnare, restrain, and punish your sub using only a single piece of equipment. That said, we’d probably only recommend it to someone who already has a dungeon (or at least a dungeon in progress) since the bench doesn’t come with any cuffs, rope, chains, or other restraints: you’ll need to provide these yourself. Considering the price, we think they should at least include one set of restraints to get you started.

Buy, if you...

  1. Like custom-made equipment
  2. Need multiple attachment points
  3. Want positioning options

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Aren’t ready to invest in your sex life
  2. Don’t already own restraints
  3. Need neck support

A Closer Look at the Prelude Bench King Black Label

It might not look like much, but the Prelude Bench King Black Label could be just what your sex life needs! Although it looks like regular furniture at a quick glance, this bench actually has 12 hidden restraint clips that can be easily utilized to subdue your partner for some kinky roleplay. Arriving nearly ready to use, you’ll need only to screw in the feet (using pre-drilled holes) before this piece is ready to go! It’s sized perfectly with a king-sized bed and available in a variety of colors, which allows you to match it with your covers as well! Discreet yet highly functional, you’ll be able to be as creative as you feel inclined using this affordable sex bench.

Pros

  • Design blends into the room
  • Concealed restraining clips
  • Easy to assemble
  • Two textured fabric options

Cons

  • Uses faux lambskin
  • Not available in different sizes
  • Requires some assembly

Verdict

Although it’s not the biggest bench around, this model is still far from being a portable spanking bench, which means that where you initially place it is probably where it will end up staying. Fortunately, the design & styling of this bench will make it inconspicuous amongst the other furniture in your bedroom. It would be nice if there were size options besides “king”, but we think it would look close enough at the foot of a queen bed. Like many other benches, you won’t receive any restraints with your purchase, but—contrary to its appearance—this model is equipped with 12 restraint clips to help you get a bit kinky in the bedroom. The height of the bench also makes it good for penetrative sex, either sitting or kneeling doggy style.

Buy, if you...

  1. Need something discreet
  2. Easy to clean
  3. Don’t want to spend over $1,000

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Need restraints in addition to the furniture
  2. Require all-natural materials
  3. Want something unique

A Closer Look at the Bondage Padded Barrel Horse

Visually, this BDSM spanking bench doesn’t give us much to look at, but it has a lot of untapped potential hidden behind the seemingly simple design. This barrel horse is ready for you (or your partner) to bend over its frame & receive a well-deserved paddling! At first glance, the restraining options might seem limited, but this device actually has 22 welded attachment points, allowing a partner to be restrained easily & effectively during use. Made to order, this barrel horse is covered in premium, easy-to-clean vinyl and padded for extra comfort when you’re bent over it. Sometimes seemingly simple things offer the most fun!

Pros

  • 22 attachment points
  • 24” diameter
  • Easy-to-clean vinyl covering
  • Lightweight, aluminum frame

Cons

  • Takes a while to arrive
  • Limited positioning options
  • No included restraints or accessories
  • Overpriced

Verdict

Our main issue with this barrel horse is the price. For such a simple design, the nearly $2,500 price tag seems unnecessary. To be fair, it is a made-to-order piece, but still. Moving on from that issue, the horse is a great addition to any sex dungeon, but will also feel at home in your bedroom (although you’ll need a lot of closet space to store it away!). The simplistic design makes it easy for even complete beginners to use, but more advanced users will have 22 attachment points to take full advantage of for more adventurous escapades using this barrel horse.

A Closer Look at the Pony Play Spanking Horse

Love Janet Jackson? If so, there’s a special reason why you might want to consider purchasing this: the rocker used this as a prop on her “Rock Witchu” stage in her 2008 tour! Besides the historical appeal, the design alone makes this item a must-have for anyone serious about pony play. This horse can be used as you groom, or spank, or flog your “horse”, completely restraining them and leaving their final fate up to your judgment. It’s time to take the reins and have a bit of fun!

Pros

  • Features reins and stirrups
  • High-quality materials
  • Made to order
  • Historical value

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Takes up a lot of space
  • Not suitable for intercourse
  • Takes a while to arrive

Verdict

We love the design of this item! The reins and stirrups add a lot to the realism, making it perfect for pony play. According to the manufacturer, the item is designed to help you groom, paddle, or flog your pony, which makes us think that trying to ride your “pony” on this prop isn’t a good idea (you also wouldn’t be able to use all the restraints if you attempted to do so). Despite this, we still think this piece is worth a second glance if you already have an established play space, love pony play, but want to add a “finishing touch”. Like any of the “made-to-order” pieces, you’ll have to wait a while for this piece to arrive in the mail & the shipping costs are entirely up to you. Also, since returns aren’t accepted and the item is pretty expensive, we’d recommend making sure you’ll actually use this horse before purchase.

Buy, if you...

  1. Want a unique pony play experience
  2. Enjoy realism
  3. Are a Janet Jackson fan

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Need furniture for intercourse
  2. Don’t have a lot of space
  3. Aren’t into pony play

A Closer Look at the Black Label Esse

Combining comfort with sexual freedom & a hint of kink, the Black Label Esse sex bench is a simple-yet-effective piece of sex furniture that will open up plenty of options for “fun time” with your partner! The company itself has 12 different recommended positions, but really the only limitation of this bench is your imagination. The bench has 24 connector points to help you restrain your partner, after which you can easily flog them into submission or plow them to completion! The base price includes the Black Label Esse, a mini-scoop, and a headrest, but you can also bundle a variety of cuffs with your order for some ready-upon-arrival fun!

Pros

  • Plenty of accessory options
  • Great for multiple sex positions
  • Machine-washable cover w/inner liner
  • Includes scoop & headrest

Cons

  • Takes a bit to ship out
  • Large
  • Cuffs cost extra

Verdict

Normally, we would fault the product for not including any type of restraints. However, since the Esse does come with some accessories, we don’t think that’s really a bad point of this bench. Included with your bench is a headrest for added neck support and the mini-scoop for back support. This—combined with the curved design—makes the Black Esse perfect for trying out new sex positions without needing to support your body entirely. If you prefer to go beyond intercourse into bondage, the Black Esse can also assist you there thanks to its 24 different connector points you can attach restraints to! Maintenance-wise, this item is pretty easy to keep clean because of its removable cover. Overall, we’d recommend the Black Esse to pretty much anyone who wants to spice up their sex lives without breaking the bank.

Buy, if you...

  1. Want to try out new sex positions
  2. Enjoy restraining your partner
  3. Need something that’s easy to clean

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Need something small
  2. Won’t use the accessories
  3. Don’t want to pay extra for accessories

A Closer Look at the Zeppelin Cocoon

Have you ever wanted to bang in a bean chair? If so, we’ve got the product for you! The Zeppelin Cocoon is a bean bag chair designed specifically to aid you in any type of sexual encounter, meaning you can use it for regular sex as well as for kinky BDSM encounters! Lay your partner down and paddle their bum to your heart’s content as they lay there basking in pleasure and pain (you can do this literally anywhere with enough floor space!). Best of all, this is a prop you can leave in your regular living space since it looks just like a regular bean bag. Choose from three colors & start figuring out what you want to use it for first while you eagerly await the mailman’s arrival!

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Easy to store
  • Multipurpose
  • Three color options

Cons

  • Doesn’t provide support
  • Lacks restraints
  • Lacks hooks

Verdict

Unlike the rest of the items on this list, the Zeppelin Cocoon actually isn’t a bench at all, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use it for some spanking fun! Both a blessing and a curse, the bean bag design allows your partner to assume any position that’s convenient, and the bean bag can even be draped over other furniture if you want to flog them against a specific object (such as the kitchen counter!). Obviously, ingenuity and creativity aren’t for everyone: some people just want something that they can set up and start using right away! If that sounds like then the Zeppelin Cocoon probably isn’t for you. However, if you don’t mind trading restraints and straps for easy storage & the ability to use your new furniture anywhere then the Zeppelin Cocoon might have a positive influence on your sex life!

Buy, if you...

  1. Need something that looks “normal”
  2. Want something beginner-friendly
  3. Tend to leave your sex equipment out

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Need firm body support
  2. Want something adjustable
  3. Are looking for straps or restraints

Do You Really Need a Sex Bench? 

Just like a sex couch or a sex table, a spanking bench is one of those items you don’t necessarily “need” but one that you’ll be happy you have! These benches can add another level of immersion to your role play, really emphasizing the sub/dom roles. They’re not single-purpose either: they can be used for both BDSM and intercourse! Since they often integrate restraints into their designs, they can make the restraining process a lot easier. Depending on the position they hold your sub in, they can also help enhance your positioning, making deeper penetration a simple task.

Make Your Own DIY Spanking Bench

With some spanking benches costing thousands of dollars, it might seem appealing (and even sensible) to make your own instead. While we don’t advocate for this approach, there are a couple of items around the house you can use while you save up for a dedicated spanking bench!

Ottoman

An ottoman (or a foot bench) is the perfect, ready-to-use spanking bench! It’s already padded, provides more than enough surface for you to lean over, and you can add pillows on top to angle/adjust yourself.

FAQ

Couldn’t any bench be a sex bench?

What if I can’t cover the whole cost upfront?
Depending on which website you’re using to shop, there may be financing options (such as Sezzle) available. If not, see if the item is financeable from a different vendor, or consider chagrin the bench to a low APR credit card.
Does my spanking bench come with a warranty?
Generally, no. However, you can check with the vendor or manufacturer for specific warranty information.
How long will my sex bench last?

What is a Spanking Bench?

A spanking bench is a piece of sex furniture that’s specifically designed to aid a person in spanking, paddling, or otherwise disciplining another person. Depending on the model, your bench may also help provide better access for certain sexual positions These benches often use metal frames and exterior padding to provide superior support for the sub on the bench. Many benches also incorporate restraints into their designs, making it easy to restrain the benched partner. Most spanking benches are fairly large and heavy, but some can be disassembled for easier storage.
