Getting Into The Swing of Things: The Best Sex Swings and How To Use Them

Have you ever wondered what sex would look like on the International Space Station?

Apart from cleaning floating body fluids, I’m sure this would be one of my new favorite things.

While one can always dream, a sex swing is one of the best ways to have floating sex here on earth.

When you are suspended in the air, your partner can pull, push and rotate your body with a tenth of the effort he takes on a bed.  And the support straps feel like constraints too, making it a good toy if you like to play rope.

Sex swings come in a few different varieties.  Some are designed for the rooms, others are made of leather and dungeons meant, and some are re-designed yoga swings.  As for the price, the sex swings that attach to your door are as cheap as $20, while other suspended models can cost up to $200.

Bondage Boutique Sex Swing – My Favorite

This is without a doubt one of the best sex swings in this guide. It’s incredibly easy to assemble, it’s made with high quality materials, and it’s incredibly versatile.

I naively assumed that I needed to turn into Bob the builder to put this lingiie in my house, but it turned out to be really easy!

The Bondage Sex Swing Shop uses a screw-hook-loop-thingy (I’m not a DIY expert) to screw into your ceiling or door frame, so you can engage in hanging on the door bondage game or fully suspended at 360 degrees BDSM.

Oh, it can also hang on to a sexual swing stand too!



The main straps are a type of nylon, with bottom and stirrups with soft velvet yadding to make it more comfortable.

It’s a swing similar to the Fetish Fantasy series, but almost half the price, which is why I ranked it as my #1 choose. If you want to see my own photos and more details, I’ve written a full review of the Bondage Boutique Sex Swing Kit here.

  • Can be hung from the ceiling, door frame or sex swing stand
  • Turns 360 degrees freely
  • Holds up to 1000lbs of weight according to LoveHoney


  • Very easy to set up – just need to find a sturdy ceiling/door frame
  • The comfortable velvety padding makes the swinging sex even more conforTable
  • Can be used for dozens of sexual positions if fully suspended


  • No headrest so your neck may hurt after a while
  • Noisy rattling of metal elements during rougher sex
  • A little expensive compared to some amazon sex swings

Pipedream – Best Sex Swing on Amazon

This sex swing allows you to turn a full 360 degrees, and lean back as far as you like.  There is also a spring at the top that helps reduce any stiffness during up-and-down movements.

For lovers subjected the freedom of this swing means that you are under the total control of your partner, they can swing you in any direction they want.  The dominant also has extra control via the handle bar on top of the swing.  If you have bondage clothes like wrists, the bar is a good place to tie it.

For stability, it comes with foot straps that let the rider keep their balance in the air.

The rider can also lay the belly first for positions.  If you try this, I recommend using a small pillow across the seat for extra comfort.

One drawback of a hanging sex swing like this is that it can be difficult to install.  You either need to drill a hole in the ceiling and attach a swing hanger.  Or you can also get a sex swing stand that is easier to set up and tidy up.

  • Turns 360 degrees
  • Included straps are like stirrups that you can use for extra balance.
  • Supports up to 400 pounds depending on the ceiling connection


  • Full swing range
  • More jobs possible
  • The bar on top is ideal for controlling and tying bondage gear.


  • Must be attached to a ceiling stand or fixture
  • The neck may hurt after 10-20 minutes
  • Expensive

Door sex swing

It’s a smart harness that turns any door into a sex swing.

To set it up, simply hang the straps on top of a door and then close it.  The metal plugs at the end of the straps will then hold the sex swing in place.

The main drawback of this swing is that it only works when the door is closed.  This limits the “swing” to about half a suspended sexual swing.

As far as positions are concerned, it is ideal for missionary swing sex and in the oral air, but is not quite the full sex swing experience.  However, it’s only $20 and a unique type of swing.

Be careful when you get it for the first time, especially if your door is fragile.   There are comments where people claim to have broken their doors because of this.   We used a solid wooden door and it worked pretty well.

  • Converts any door into a sex swing
  • Supports up to 400 pounds (depending on the door)
  • The leg straps are fully adjustable


  • Most Affordable Sex Swing ($20)
  • Easy setup
  • Portable


  • Restricted swing movement
  • Can damage fragile doors
  • Can be strong

Portable Sex Swing Stand

As I mentioned earlier a stand is a way to suspend suspended swings without having to turn it into a construction project.  All you need is the instructions and 10-20 minutes to set it up and make it.  No holes in the ceiling or anything like that.

ultimate ultimate portable sex swing stand
  • Can hold up to 400 pounds
  • Can be collapsed and stored under a bed or in a closet

  • Portable and foldable


  • Expensive
  • Takes a large space (12′ x 13′) when setup

Body sex swing

Instead of hanging a swing from a door or ceiling, how about another person?

That’s what the sex swing of the body does.  A partner puts the harness on their body with two leg loops for their partner to fit on.

However, unless your partner is the incredible hulk don’t expect to swing from them like you would a sexual swing stand.

Instead, it works very well to make difficult standing positions without arm getting tired.  It transfers the weight from the arms to the legs.  Ideal for exploring difficult positions.

Sex harness to swing the body
  • Fully adjustable to match any size or height
  • Harness has handles for the swinger


  • Makes positions easier
  • Inexpensive


  • Puts extra weight on knees and hips
  • Not the experience of “swing” of complete sex

Yoga Sex Swing

Yoga swings, used by yoga enthusiasts for aerial stretching, are almost identical to most sexual swings.  Almost any position that can be made on the above swings can be done on a yoga swing.

It’s also a dual goal if you have an interest in yoga and fitness.  The swing comes with a stretching guide and detailed configuration instructions.

You also have a good excuse to leave it until 24/7, if someone asks you, you can just tell them it’s your yoga swing.

The only downside is that the seat is a flat material, like a hammock for your buttocks.  This makes penetration a little less accessible than on swings made solely for sex, which use leg curls for support and have very narrow seats.  I found the best solution is to just scoot my up to the very edge of the seat where the material does get menot on the way.

  • Comes with a guide to stretching and yoga exercises
  • Double attachment means that the swing does not rotate when used
  • Machine washable


  • Discreet.  If someone asks, it’s a yoga swing.
  • Can be used for sex or yoga
  • Comfortable materials and variety of color choices


  • No 360-degree rotation
  • No spring on top
  • The siege is not as friendly to enter the missionary position

What is a Sex Swing? (Definition)

A sex swing combines two very fun things: sex and swings.

Usually, the submissive partner will sit or sit in the sex swing, supported by a harness that wraps around their legs, back, and buttocks.  From there, it’s up to your imagination.  The most obvious position to try is the sex swing missionary, which is like a weighting form of missionary.  Because there is no resistance the dominant partner can effortlessly pull his lover at them, this is something you have to try to understand.

Anything that has a harness and some form of suspension can be considered a sexual swing. Here are the main types:

  • Hanging door – these sex swings hang from the doors.  They are easy to set up, but have reduced the range of motion,
  • Complete suspension – these sex swings hang from a ceiling or a sex swing stand.  They are harder to set up, but this is the best swing sex you can get.  They are built for a full range of movement both up and down and 360 degrees spin.
  • Yoga sex swing – these are intended for yoga, but can easily be used for every swing sex position.  They’re easy to keep out in the open because you have an excuse – it’s just your yoga swing.  However, they are set up in a way that does not allow 360 spinning, which is a fun feature of only-for-sex swings.

Benefits of a sexual swing

When you have sex on a sexual swing there is only one thing that touches you – your partner.  It feels like you’re floating in space and all you feel is your partner inside you.  This works like sensory depravity and increases the intensity of sensations and pleasures.

For BDSM, whoever is on the swing submits entirely to their partner.  The harness itself feels like stresses, you can also use your own wrists and attach them to parts of the swing.


Difficult to set up – To set up a suspended sex swing, you’re going to need some tools.  Usually, a power drill and an eyeball depending on the swing you use.  The best way to get around this sex swing stand which can be installed without tools or holes in your ceiling.

Neck tension – After 10-20 minutes I find my neck starts to hurt to hold my head up.  I usually fix this by changing position or sitting completely for a nice str

How to install a sex swing

Sex Swing - How does it work

Sex swings are great for improving your sex life, whether you use them for, vaginal, oral, or any other kind of sex! However, it is essential that you put them in place safely. The last thing you want to do is come crashing in the middle of a sex session – you could get a serious injury.

Door sex swing setting

For sexual swings that are used with doors, there are some main types. Most over-door harnesses will have straps with thick ends that pass over the door.

You then close the door and lock it (if possible) so that the main harness on your side is suspended in a stable manner. That’s what I’m talking about. Make sure it’s a strong door!

A few sexual swings, such as the Swing Shop Bondage, can attach to your door frame with a screw-loop trick (that’s the technical term). Just keep in mind that your door should be very strong and you won’t be able to close it completely unless you remove the hook.

Fully suspended installation (ceiling)

If you use sex swings that are attached to your ceiling, you need to make sure that you have high ceilings (usually) with strong beams/chevrons/joists.

Depending on where you come from, building your home may be different, but here’s a video about find ceiling joists in homes in the UK and here’s an American site telling you how to find ceiling beams.

Looking for a simpler way to locate your beams? Try to climb a ladder and hit your ceiling at different points until you find the area that sounds the least hollow

Sex Swing Stand Setup

For people who have a lot of space in their home, the sexual swing stands are perfect. These dedicated sturdy metal stands are designed to hold the weight of various sex swings without you worrying about demolishing the ceiling!

How to use a sex swing

A sex swing is only fun if you know how to use it.  It is important to understand what is involved in setting up a new sexual swing.


How to set up

How to install a sex swing door – these are easy to set up and very intuitive.  All you have to do is throw the swing sex straps on the door and then close it.  The padded tubes at the end distribute the weight along the door.  Make sure you don’t open the door when you use it, you will fall immediately.

How to set up a suspended sex swing For these, you’ll need a tool unless you have the special sex swing stand.  Start by finding a place on the ceiling where there is a support beam, you can tap with a stick and listen to the place where it sounds the least hollow.  Then start drilling a hole so that the eye bolt enters.  Then, with a pre-drilled hole, you can screw the bolt from the eye to the hand or by inserting a long piece of metal into the hole and twisting it.


Here is a list of some positions to try:

Missionary Let your partner take control and move effortlessly on his limb.  If you have a 360 swing, you can go in all directions and not just back and forth.

– Put your stomach in the harness and get ready for an incredible ride.  Try to put a pillow on the straps for comfort.

Oral The swing rises to the perfect height for cunning.  For either partner, this makes jaw and neck fatigue almost non-existent.
