Sex pillows are helpful for various sex positions. Dr. Megan Fleming, Lovehoney sex expert, recommends using them for doggy style or if you and your partner are trying a side-by-side position. They also work quite well during missionary, if you and your partner have a significant height difference, and they provide more comfortable access for the giver during oral sex, SELF previously reported.

A sex blanket is a blanket you use for masturbation or partner play to keep your sheets and other surfaces clean and dry, SELF previously reported. You can use any waterproof blanket, but blankets made specifically for sex, like the one below from brands like The Layer and Liberator, might fare better. “If you’re a squirter, or you’re experimenting with food kinks, or using oil, lube, or massage candles, a waterproof blanket is going to be helpful,” Dr. Fleming told SELF. Texture is key during intimacy, too, so implementing a sex blanket can add another layer of sensuality. You can also use sex-specific sheets if you don’t want to get your favorite sheet set messy.

In a nutshell, sex swings suspend one partner in the air, while the other can move around them. They’re fun for folks who want to try suspended positions without having to literally hold their partner’s bodyweight. Many swings also come with restraints and attachments.
Rose encourages playing with sex swings but drives home the importance of safety. If you’re using the swings that go into the ceiling, “Use some common sense and read the instructions,” she says. There are also door swing varieties that are less permanent, travel-friendly, and far easier to assemble. You could also opt to buy a yoga swing, which is intended for acrobatics and aerial yoga poses, but easily moonlights as a sex sling.
Six Chaises, Chairs, and Couches
Sex chairs, chaises, and functional couches allow you to try new sex positions in a comfortable and sexy way, Rose explains. When looking for these kinds of pieces, make sure the fabric or material is easy to clean. Rose says leather is a no-no, but faux leather works just fine. You’ll also want to find smooth lines and curves, which not only looks sexy, but is also ergonomic. “I am a big, big fan of the Liberator Esse tantric chair,” says Rose. “It’s ergonomically designed and it’s got those beautiful curves, which mimic the shape of the body. And if you put it in your living room or bedroom, nobody would know what it’s used for, because it just looks pretty.”
If you’re interested in a sex position enhancer chair spirit a sex swing but don’t have the square footage, a swinging chair is a delight for oral sex and doggy style. The Nugget is intended to be a fun couch for kids, but it’s also an accidental sex couch. (It went viral in 2020 after Redditors discovered the kinds of fun adults could have on it.) Hey, as long as you’re keeping it clean, bang away.
Six Benches and Ramps
Sex ramps are pretty much just larger and longer versions of sex pillows. Most sex ramps are made from high-density foam, so they’re great for playing with different positions, and they offer bodies of all sizes more support and stability than a wedge pillow. Using these positioning aids can make the logistics of sex a little easier, so you’re less in your head and can focus on the important thing: pleasure and orgasms (or multiple orgasms).
