The Liberator company makes sex furniture. Yup, you heard me. Furniture created for the sole purpose of boinking. Now, I know what you’re probably thinking, “isn’t all furniture made for that purpose?” and I love you for having that thought, you’re in the right place, but try to stay with me here.
Liberator furniture takes things a bit further by combining all of your favorite positions with unmatched ergonomic comfort and support. The flagship of their armada, the Ramp/Wedge Combo, boasts being “the greatest invention for sex since the bed.” And while that is a lofty claim, after sampling this dynamic duo, I’m inclined to agree.
The Ramp and Wedge are sold independently or together as a team. The Wedge is the smaller of the two and can be used to prop up your partner’s hips, making their nether regions more accessible than if they were lying flat on the bed. Either place them face down or on their back, pop this little helper underneath, and marvel at the world of difference a slight lift off the mattress does for their comfort and yours.
The ramp is the larger of the two and is amazing for stabilizing your partner. Higher impact positions like doggy style and missionary get pretty effortless with the inclusion of this base.
When you combine the two your only limit is your imagination. Any position you can do on a bed, you can do better and more comfortably with these two simple pieces of sexual engineering. I could list off a pile of amazing sex acts you can effortlessly accomplish with these shapes, but the good people at Liberator saved me the trouble by making some handy informational art.
Pretty amazing eh? But the benefits go far beyond the kama sutra playbook.
Liberator shapes provide unparalleled joint support. If either you or your partner suffer from issues of the back, neck, hips or wrists, the Ramp/Wedge Combo is a must have. With chronic pain, maintaining a position where support your own weight for any period of time is pure agony. If you add another person’s weight to the equation, your post-coital afterglow gets swapped out for chiropractic adjustment fantasies. The Liberator shapes are made of a high-density polyurethane foam, and support your weight effortlessly while still being very comfortable; it’s more akin to playing on a memory foam mattress than a pillow or cushion.
Aside from being removable and machine washable (hooray hygiene), the micro fiber cover is extremely soft and durable. It feels closer to velvet but without the flimsy properties to match. Through some act of textile wizardry they created a fabric that is soft to the touch, resistant to sweat and other liquids, and still manages to grip your partner and other Liberator furniture effortlessly.
The Ramp/Wedge Combo makes the majority of positions better, but by far the winner in my book is the classic missionary. With your partner’s lower half elevated by the Ramp, and the upper half supported by the wedge, every thrust achieves greater depth, hits the anterior vaginal wall, and directly stimulates the G-Spot.
Touching more on the topic of achievable depth, it’s no mystery different positions hit certain parts of the anatomy better than others. Not all bodies are uniform and some have limitations which present interesting challenges. In the case of Liberator assisted sex, it’s amazing how simply elevating your partner off the bed by seven inches allows for greater depth and more comfortable angles. This simple adjustment increases stamina because you’re not fighting against your core muscles, but also allows you to make contact with areas you wouldn’t otherwise reach when having sex on a flat plane surface, such as a bed.
And my favorite benefit when using the Ramp/Wedge Combo comes from their ability to liberate (pun intended) your hands from otherwise supporting yourself or your partner, which truly allows you to explore one another. It brings a new level of intimacy to your sex life when you can touch, feel, caress, and appreciate someone without having to think about technique.
If I had to pick a downside, I guess I would say they’re difficult to store; just forget about getting them back in the box once they’re out because it’s never going to happen. But that’s fairly trivial when compared to the benefits of owning your own ergonomic sex furniture.
Do you absolutely need a Liberator set? No, there honestly isn’t anything you can accomplish on these pillows you can’t do with some yoga, pilates, and strength training. But, if you enjoy the idea of some of the most comfortable, playful, and engaging sex you’ve ever experienced, I can highly recommend these products.
