Today we’ll take a look at the different types of sex swing and what they can be used for. Plus, I’ll share some recommendations for sex swings to elevate your sex life!

Here’s what we’ll cover in this post:

Different Types of Sex Swings

Which type of sex swing you choose will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • How you want to mount it
  • What different positions you want to explore
  • How much you weigh
  • Your budget — on a tight budget? Check out these cheap sex swings that won’t break the bank!

I’m going to walk you through each type of swing to help you figure out your perfect match!

Traditional Sex Swings

Most traditional sex swings have straps that support your back, and butt, as well as stirrups for your legs and handles. They offer a lot of support and versatility!

They can be single hook or dual hook, meaning they either have one mounting point or two. This determines which type of sex swing stand you can use or how many holes you need to make in your ceiling.

Single hook swings have the advantage that you only needing to make one hole if you are mounting it to the ceiling. However, dual hook swings tend to be more comfortable and can take more weight.

The Screamer Dual Hook Sex Swing is one the most comfortable and supportive sex swings out there, and it opens up so many position possibilities!

Door Sex Swings

If you don’t have the space or budget for a full on sex swing, a door swing is a great alternative. The swing fastens in place behind a closed door, meaning you don’t need any mounting points.

Door swings are much more affordable than regular swings, they take up less space and are quick and easy to put up and take down. They are great for travelling with and an inexpensive way to try out sex swings before committing to a more expensive one!

However, they are less versatile and don’t offer quite as much support.

Spinning Sex Swings

Spinning sex swings are single hook swings that can also spin around. As well as the freedom of being weightless, you can spin the riding partner around as they sit in the swing.

These swings are great if you want more range of movement or to be able to switch between reclined oral and genital or anal sex.

You can mount a spinning sex swing to either a mounting point in your ceiling or to a sex swing stand.

As they are single hook, they might not be the most comfortable option for larger bodies, and they will have a lower weight limit.

Bondage Sex Swings

If you want to combine your love of tying your partner up with swinging sex, a bondage swing is the way to go!

On top of all the regular straps, bondage sex swings come equipped with restraints and D-rings to secure your partner tightly in place.

If you already have a screamer sex swing, but want to transform it into a bondage swing, Screamer make a great leather cuff set!

Once tied up, you can enjoy all sorts of restraint play from penetrative sex to using your favorite extreme BDSM toys to tease and torture!

Heavy Duty Sex Swings

If you like to get a little rough with your play or you are in a bigger body, heavy duty sex swings are a great option as they offer more in terms of strength and support.

They tend to have two or four mounting points, making them better equipped to take more weight or force as the weight is distributed rather than relying on a single mounting point.

This makes them a great option for more hardcore BDSM play as they withstand any squirming or wriggling around!

Sex Slings

Sex slings offer the most support as they have a full, hammock style seat and four mounting points.

This makes them great for relaxing back into, BDSM style play, and extra support for bigger bodies or people with disabilities.

The full seat does mean it is one of the least versatile options in terms of which positions you can explore. Some seats might also make it difficult to find the right position for penetration.

They come in a range of materials from fabric and nylon to leather sex slings that are perfect for that BDSM dungeon aesthetic!

However, they are fantastic for oral sex and using your BDSM sex toys!
