Chair Sex for the Ergonomically Correct

Pin it


I’ve always been a big proponent of chair sex, not in the least because it’s a fun way to spice things up and get out of the tried-and-true bedroom routine. And no matter who the object of your davenport desire is, it never hurts to keep a few simple rules of sexual ergonomics in mind. After all, the goal of chair sex is more chair sex later, right? That and, um, not so much the sore back and unhappy joints.

Sure, there’s a whole host of tantric chairs out there that guarantee optimal ergonomics and creative positioning, but then you’ve got a Tantra Chair hanging out in your living room, which isn’t exactly the pinnacle of subtlety. Alternately, you could also check out the book on Tantric Sex shortcuts that Shaun posted about recently… definitely an excellent option for polishing your technique in and out of the bedroom.

But if you’re looking for a surefire way to inspire a spontaneous (and yes, ergonomically correct) tryst, I’d recommend this:


The Oviedo chaise lounge has all the curves of a tantric chair minus the telltale aesthetics. In fact, those curves combined with its sleek leather upholstery and chrome legs have already got me salivating for a living room romp. And the best part? Totally back pain-free. (Okay, maybe that’s not the best part, but it’s pretty damned good.)
