What Type Of Mattress Is Best For Lovemaking?

When buying mattresses, most adults rarely consider how suitable the mattress will be for their sexual escapades. After all, if the mattress is comfortable enough to sleep on, then it is comfortable enough for sex, right?

Well, according to various studies, some types of mattresses are better than others when it comes to sex.

The ranking of the different types of mattresses when it comes to sex is based on a number of factors including bounciness, comfort, how easy it is to move around on the mattress and even how noisy the mattress is.

1. Inner-Spring Mattresses

In most of the studies were done on how good mattresses are when it comes to sex, innerspring mattresses emerged as the best mattresses for sex. This is largely due because inner-spring mattresses, though old school in nature, are quite bouncy.

Most people agree that the bouncier a mattress is, the better the mattress is for sex. The reason given for this is because the bounce helps couples get into rhythm faster during the whole act of making love. This, of course, has the effect of increasing the enjoyment and satisfaction.

But innerspring mattresses also have the benefit of being firm enough for couples to move around on it easier. This is a good thing not only when it comes to sleeping, but also when it comes to performing during lovemaking sessions. The ease of movement ultimately means that couples using innerspring mattresses find it easier to change positions during sex.

However, innerspring mattresses also have their disadvantages when it comes to lovemaking. The most common of these disadvantages would have to be the fact that innerspring mattresses have a tendency of being quite ‘noisy’. This is especially so in cases where the mattress is not of a high quality or when the mattress is worn out or old.

2. Latex Mattresses

The second best mattress for sex according to most studies is the latex mattress. There are a number of benefits that accrue from making love on a latex mattress. In fact, latex mattresses out-perform innerspring mattresses when it comes to several things. The first of these is discretion during the act of lovemaking. Latex mattresses, unlike inner-spring mattresses, are better suited when it comes to absorbing motions during sex which makes them more silent than innerspring mattresses.

Latex mattresses also outperform innerspring mattresses when it comes to the comfort that they offer couples who are making love. This is made possible by the sufficient cushioning that latex mattresses provide. Couples using latex mattresses are therefore more likely to enjoy and maintain the rhythm of certain positions for longer periods without getting tired or uncomfortable.

Regardless of the fact that latex mattresses outperform innerspring mattresses in comfort and discretion, they perform quite dismally when it comes to bounciness. This is, of course, unwelcome news for couples as it means that it is harder for couples to not only get into a rhythm but also to stay in rhythm.

Many couples who use latex mattresses also complain that their mattresses tend to be a little uneven. This is due to the body impressions that develop on the surface of the mattress. Too many of these body impressions may impede movement during sex making it uncomfortable.

3. Memory Foam Mattresses

Probably the best thing about using a memory foam mattress for sex is the discretion that these mattresses bring. Memory foam mattresses are more solid than most other types of mattresses. This means that couples can expect minimal noise when using the mattress for sex.

Couples having sex on memory foam mattresses can also expect more comfort. This is welcome news for sexually active couples as it means that they can have more sex without getting fatigued. It also means that couples get fewer body sores especially in body parts such as the knees and the butt.

Because of the increased comfort that memory foam mattresses bring, some couples may find it easier to reach climax while making love on memory foam mattresses.

However, memory foam mattresses also have their flip-sides when used for sex. In fact, most couples who have had sex on memory foam mattresses reported getting uncomfortable from the heat that the extra cushioning on memory foam mattresses brings.

Too much heat makes it more difficult to have an enjoyable lovemaking session unless you like it sweaty.  A suggestion here would be to buy one with cooling gel infused into the memory foam top layer. If you live in a cold climate this might be a welcome side effect because no one wants to feel chilly when being intimate with your partner.

The solid and stable nature of memory foam mattresses also poses a little extra effort when it comes to bounciness. Couples may find it harder to acquire sexual rhythm when using a memory foam mattress for sex.

All in all, the warm nature of the mattress coupled with the fact that memory foam mattresses have little bounce means that couples may need more stamina or be really physically fit to enjoy it.  Simply put it’s a workout and most people will tire faster.
