How to make a Sex Swing?

Some of the best memories that we have from childhood involve swings. Heck, some of us were swinging naked back then. Why should it be any different today?

Some odd bits and bobs may be more significant than they were back then. We are still the same person, aren’t we?

Sex swings (see reviews) allow us the chance to share our erotic fantasies with a little nostalgia attached to them.

It was only a few years ago that I didn’t even know that they existed. Bless the visionary that introduced me to these magical things. I haven’t looked back ever since.

If you want to put your personal touch to them by making one yourself, the least we can do is assist you. This post will walk you through how to safely create what can, at times, be a danger-filled idea.

Fortune does favor the brave! Go on!

What do you need?

What you need will depend on a wide range of factors. There are some things that would be essential.

Let us look at those first:

Safety Precautions

If you need to be told that there are some dangers attached to the use of a sex swing, you have no business having one. However, these are dangers that can be managed by practicing some caution.

We will look at some of the things that you can do to ensure safety.

The first thing to consider is the weight of the person that will be holstered on the swing. It should determine the material as well as the infrastructure on which the swing hangs.

If you are thinking of using your ceiling, consider whether it will hold the weight. Most ceilings are made out of boards that cannot take much weight. If this is the case then we suggest that you invest in a sex swing stand.

In such cases, making a hole and using the roofing timber would be an option.

Once the weight has been covered, think about the pressure points. What parts of the body will be under the most pressure when you are on this swing?

These are the parts that are hanging. Make provisions for additional cushioning in that region.

How to make it

Please stick with us; this tends to be the challenging part. We will divide our swing into various sections to make it easier.


As we have previously mentioned, the hinges are arguably the most crucial feature of any swing.

We couldn’t call it a swing if it weren’t held up by these.

You can use either anchor your hinges overhead or at an angle. If you choose to go with the angled option, you would be looking at using the walls to hold it all up.

Use the drill to make a small hole in the wall. Pin your hinges to the wall using some nails or screws.

You can use several hinges if you are concerned about the weight involved.

Sometimes drilling holes into your wall might not be the best solution, especially if you want a spinning sex swing. Attaching it to a door might be a better answer when it comes to hanging!

Depending on the sort of swing that you are going for, a good seat can be a make or break feature. You want yours to be one that provides a combination of comfort and safety.

The best way to do this is to be very picky with the material that you use.

We will cover this a little more in the cushioning section. Make use of your sewing kit for this part.


There are not many things that would ruin your mojo as much as a lack of cushioning would. That can bring good sex to an abrupt end before you can spell “S.E.X.”

Get the cushioning right, please.

Two things that matter will be padding and softness.

The padding creates a covering between some of the hard material that you use and your body. If you have used a wooden seat, you would need to add some cushioning to make it softer to sit on.

Once the softness is covered, you need to cater to your skin as well. It is where the cloth comes into play.

Once the intercourse begins, the friction that comes with it can become an annoying pain. Choosing the right coverage will go a long way to solving the issue.

One of our favorite materials is silk. Your body will slide over it smoothly.

Pulley System

For the more ambitious or perhaps experienced ones among us, the pulley system will go a long way. A pulley will allow you to adjust your swing’s position from a higher to a lower point.

It may also be used to place body parts in some exciting positions.

It is where your carabiners will come in handy. Pair them with some bondage rope.

Final Touches

The final touches are where you can bring in the extra bits, such as the bedroom handcuffs. You can position them in such a way that they would be able to adjust with ease.

We ought to emphasize the importance of pressure testing the swing before you go all out. Weight tolerance is a crucial aspect to test.

By adding some leather and metal parts you can turn your creation into a BDSM swing with ease.

If this is beyond you or you lack the time or patience to make your swing, there are some fantastic manufactured options.
