Kink has never been more possible than in this hot and gaping Year of Our Lord 2023. We are blessed to have 1) internet access and 2) a dragon’s hoard of BDSM staples on the web’s horniest and normy-est sites, from Lovehoney to Amazon. And whether you’re an Olympic-level pommel horse kinkster or a BDSM novice, all you have to do is ask Alexa, “Where can I buy the best cheap, sturdy sex swings online for him to blow out my [redacted], but not my back?” and the web will deliver.

You probably know your way around a deluxxxe fantasy bondage swing set by now, but if you’re new to sex swings, welcome. Aside from the kink of it all, getting hoisted into the air can simply be a new way to help you and your partner play around with sex positions and achieve deeper penetration; think of a no-drill sex swing as an easily collapsible (and stashable) piece of sex furniture; imagine how easy it will be for your partner to hoist you around like a piñata with the support of the swing. So easy. (We wish the GEICO caveman would do it.)

That’s enough pillow talk—let’s get you swinging. 

The easiest to install, no-drill sex swings

Look, we get it. You don’t even have room for an air fryer in your apartment (but… have you seen the compact ones?), let alone space for a standing sex swing. Luckily, Lovehoney is slinging no-drill sex swings for hot, lazy people who don’t live in palaces, such as this Bondage Boutique swing that you just toss over the door (it has weights on the other side) or fit in your suitcase to take on vacation. Cop it while it’s 30% off for the site’s Valentine’s Day sale

The best sex swing with restraints

As a general rule—in life, and sex—we try to invest in items that do more than one thing. Today, that means dropping our coins on a highly rated sex swing that comes with its own handcuffs and eye mask.
