Reasons To Try A Swing

Certain forays into sexual territory, like attempting the bendy position for the first time requires nothing more than an ounce of courage, a bit of communication, and perhaps some decent lubricant. Other times, such as stepping into a sexual swing for the first time be a little more daunting.

A lot of people don’t understand what a sex sling is, and that’s why we requested Victor Tobar, national buying and merchandising manager of The Pleasure Chest, and fan of the sex swing to clarify. “My first time using an sling was at an sex-themed party in the dark dungeon in NYC. I was there with a friend who was also wearing the sling. I believe we were in a state of being nervous about trying something different, particularly making a public appearance, and extremely excited to experience this brand new type of bondage” Tobar says.

However, it really isn’t too difficult (nor do they only come accessible at sex events–more about this in the future): “Think of a swing on a playground but designed for people of all ages,” says Tobar. “They differ in their form, meaning that the person that is in the sling can be completely or partly reclined. Certain slings feature at least one or two points that connect to bolts in the ceiling, while others have free-standing frames meaning you don’t need to pull out your electric tools to get them,” He says. One thing that all swings share is that they allow the person who is who is standing on solid ground greater access to their partner’s body.

As getting into the flow of things (yes pun intended) takes a little preparation, you’ll need to first discuss it with your partner. “Introducing your idea your partner could be as simple as chatting about new ways to play or being about trying something new and exciting that will raise the intimacy you experience,” says Santos, an Pleasure Chest employee who’s experimented with sex swings in the past.
