How to build your own sex furniture in 2024

Have you ever wondered what sort of genius could combine two of our favorite activities in a single product? Comfort and pleasure are the ultimate dynamic duo.

It is what sex furniture is designed to deliver, and deliver it does. It allows you the freedom to express your kinky side without worrying about potential injury.

What positions have you been holding out on due to safety concerns?

I’d say it’s time to bring sexy back.

Building your sex furniture is a great way to do so. Not to worry, you are in good company. Ancient Greek art depicts some of the sex furniture designs that we are seeing on the market today (1).

Did you know that the two key factors that are to be considered when it comes to sex furniture are comfort and ease of access?

No one likes the idea of having to wriggle like a worm in an attempt to penetrate your partner or allow your partner to do so.

What to consider when making your own sex furniture

Spontaneity is one of the things that heighten arousal. It is perhaps why a recent study has shown that over 60% of Americans have been lured by the allure of a one night stand (2).

Unfortunately, we cannot plan our furniture choices on such spontaneity as much as it may delight us.

What are some of the things that you ought to consider when making your sex furniture? Don’t get your knickers in a twist trying to figure this one out. We have some answers below.


Positions, positions, positions! We all love to switch from one to another.

What we often find is that these pleasures often come with some pain.

Have you ever found yourself in a position that brings incredible pleasure to your partner, but only discomfort to you?

The generous lovers will endure the pain for as long as possible for their partner’s sake.

You should not have to.

The perfect sexual chair facilitates comfort for you and your partner, in your favored positions.

To get some ideas written down, consider your favorite positions and the pain points associated with it.

For instance, if you love good old doggy-style as much as most of us do. You will be aware that the knees can become a pain point. That is what your furniture should help resolve.

Write a two-column list of your favorite positions with their pain points. You may also add access issues that limit penetration.


Pain Point


With the challenges that you have identified with the two-column exercise, let us consider the importance of size.

Don’t worry; this is not about the size of your apparatus. That is for another post altogether.

The comfort that you need may be tied to the space that you have on your furniture.

Perhaps a good starting point would be considering whether this is designed for the comfort of one partner or both?

With the doggy-style example mentioned earlier, you can get away with providing padding for the receiver. In which case, you may not need to build a piece of furniture that is too large.

It would be wise to measure the parts of the body that you are looking to safeguard.

For positions such as the hot seat where one partner will lay down, you would want to consider how tall they are.


Now that we have established that comfort is a crucial factor for our furniture. Unless, of course, pain is what you are into.

We can assume that getting the right material is essential. You can divide your material into tools and raw material.

The tools will include things that will cut your material into the right sizes and bind things together.

It is for the more daring among us. If you want your furniture to be more intuitive than the usual furniture, you would want to consider some of the functions.

You can consider these based on the sex positions that you are building your furniture around.

We have seen braces, handcuffs, velcro leg stretchers, and so on.

Be adventurous.


The assumption is always that you save money by building it yourself. It isn’t always true, is it?

Once you add the cost of the material and time, you may have to spend a lot more than the cost of buying it.

Think about it.

There are several approaches that you can take in the execution stage. Your furniture may be unique or built around existing concepts.

If you go with the latter, you would want to scour the market to see what is available.

Once you have some items in mind, consider how you can improve the design or replicate it.

Another way to do this would be to consider the furniture that you already have in your home. What makes it inadequate? It may only be the presence of an arm in the wrong place.

In which case, your version would be constructed without said arm.

Depending on your expertise, you may want to allow yourself plenty of time for this project. Spend time drawing it, gathering supplies, and finally putting it all together.

A simple but effective thing to do is always take your drawing to the hardware stores and ask questions.

The experienced personnel will often do some of the work for you. They will guide you with finding the right material and tools.

Your kinky side does not have to be revealed. Just ask the right questions about building without revealing too much.

If you are like me, and just want to in the words of Marvin Gaye, “get it on”… check out some of the furniture that we recommend.
