Where do I Mount My Sling?

Before I even get this article started, I wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on taking a try at your sex life with a sling. I’ve owned mine for several years now, and I can’t tell you what it has done for my sex life. Taking out the restriction of lying (or whatever position you prefer) on a sturdy object makes things so much more exciting. Yes, it’s going to be somewhat of a Jacob’s Ladder at first, but once you get the hang of it, it will be swing, swing, swing.  If you’re having some questions about how and where to mount your sling, I’ve got a few great ideas for you.

If you’ve got a private backyard and a tree, you’ve got the best possible location for your sling. Hammocks are nice, but they can be tough to work with, given the way they are set up to collapse with the weight that’s in it. The sling does wonders outdoors, and I highly encourage you to at least find a remote location to try it at.

The Bedroom

If you’re still finding that you’re not quite ready to take things out of the bedroom, I would recommend that you keep the action in there. Look for a spot that’s a few feet away from the wall so you don’t hurt yourself, but still far enough from the bed so you have plenty of room to swing around. Depending on how things go, you could find that you need quite the big of diameter to work with.

The Basement

If you’ve got a basement, you’ve more than likely got lots of room to work with. To keep things entirely safe and fun, this is where I would say to mount your sling. If you have an unfinished basement, but some carpeting down so you don’t have to deal with anyone banging their knees into flat cement.

The Back Patio

This is not the same as mounting it to a tree. I have a sturdy overhang on my patio and decided to mount my sling to it one night when it was late. Granted, we were feeling quite frisky after a night out, and we did have to keep it down out of respect for our neighbors. But nothing was so cool as having sex in a sling on a chilly night. Greatest. Nightcap. Ever.

Just some final thoughts before you go drilling holes all over your ceilings. Make sure to use a stud finder…the one that finds wood…you know what I mean. Having one of these neat little gadgets will prevent you from having to guess where you’ll be mounting the sling and accidentally putting holes into your drywall.

The sling is an adventurous addition to sex that will have you hooked in no time. Take care to keep fragile things out of reach from the sling, and be sure that you’re not going to be banging your head against something that will leave you with a mild concussion. Besides, the more room that you have to work with, the more fun you’ll have learning how that thing works! You won’t get it right the first time, but that’s the fun part of it all.
