Mattresses for Sex: A Buying Guide (2020)

Posted by on October 30, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

As many of us know, having a healthy sex life is an important part of our health. Not only does it fulfill our emotional needs, but it also fulfills our physical urges and keeps us balanced.

But just as important as sex is, it is also important to keep in mind that it is an extremely strenuous activity and you need a good mattress that takes care of your body while you're getting busy.

But here comes the question of how to judge which one is the best mattress for sex. Well, that's why we've created this buying guide that will let you know how to choose the mattress that suits you and your sex life the most.

How To Choose The Best Mattress For Sex

The factors that you must consider while buying a mattress differs from type to type and purpose to purpose. Here are the factors that you must remember when you buy a mattress for sex.

1. Firmness/ Bounce

The primary factor that you must consider when buying a mattress is its firmness or bounce. If you have an active sex life, you need a mattress with medium firmness and a good bounce. You do not want it too hard, since it will hurt you during intercourse and may even lead to injuries. But at the same time, a mattress that is too soft will also be uncomfortable and difficult to adjust with, especially during intercourse. So it is pretty crucial to reach that Goldilocks area of a firm yet bouncy mattress.

2. Heat Retention

Sex is almost like exercise. Our body tends to go through similar, if not identical processes, which is why we get so hot and sweaty. That is why it is important to get a mattress with low heat retention and/or with cooling features, that will keep you cool. This feature is more important if you're planning on sleeping right after since you wouldn't be comfortable sleeping on a hot and overheated bed. Getting a mattress that comes equipped with cooling gel or cooling beads is a good idea, especially if you live in a hot or humid climate and don't have air conditioning.

3. Conforming

Have you ever noticed how your mattress surrounds your body when you lay down on it? This is called conforming, and it implies the “sinking” that occurs when you sit or lie down on a mattress. When choosing a mattress with sex in mind, don't go for a mattress with high conformance. This is especially important for those who are heavier. The “dipping” effect will make intercourse uncomfortable, by making it hard to shift positions and move around. However, some people prefer such an effect. We would suggest that you go to a store and check out a few mattresses to see what works for you best in this matter.

4. Durability

If you lead an active sex life, your mattress needs to be durable and able to withstand the constant activity. Sex, as we all know, involves a lot of movement and shifting. As a result, the mattress is under a lot of duress. The kind of mattress that you choose to buy needs to be able to withstand such duress and remain well. In other words, constant activity shouldn't be a factor that causes it to deteriorate faster. One way to ensure or check for durability is by taking a look at the type of material that the mattress is made of. Generally, latex mattresses have a higher density and can withstand a significant amount of impact, and manage to last longer. Foam mattresses also have similar properties.

5. Size

Size is another major factor that you must remember about before you purchase a mattress for yourself. To be truly comfortable and have ample space for intercourse, your bed needs to be large and have enough space to accommodate you and your partner. Other than your body shape and size, it is also necessary for you to keep in mind the dimensions of your bed and room while deciding upon the size. This is so that your mattress can fit in seamlessly into your room, without a hassle. People tend to make this mistake in general, and end up buying a mattress that doesn't fit their bed. So make sure that you keep this in mind.

6. Price

Just like in everything else, price plays an important role here as well. Now, if you're looking for a mattress with particular or specific features, you will have to pay a higher price than usual. However, it also doesn't mean that you have to empty your coffers. The best way to go about this is to create a budget that is comfortable for you and sticking to it. Take our word and don't be impressed by hyper-expensive and costly mattresses. Instead, choose one that suits your needs and requirements as well as your budget.
