What Is The Best Mattress For Sex? 4 Things To Look For

Your Mattress Affects Your Sex Life More Than You Realize, So Consider These 4 Things To Choose The Best Mattress For Sex

Once you're aware of how mattresses affect your sex life, you can choose the right one.


When we think of beds, we only think of them accomplishing one thing: providing a place to sleep. However, that's not all that they are good for. We use our beds to lie down and watch TV, read books and, of course, to have sex.

What's interesting is that, despite all of the things that happen on our mattress, we only buy them with our comfort sleeping in mind. Very rarely would you walk into your local mattress store and ask the clerk which mattress would be suitable for sex. Some of you might not even have considered the effect a mattress could have on the way you have sex.

So, the real question is, does a mattress actually affect your sex life? It's a difficult question to answer and one that requires you to think long and hard about certain aspects. To shed some light on the subject, we'll have to examine multiple sides of the equation. Let's dive into the subject and try to see what conclusion we can draw.

The Typical Mattress Design

At its most fundamental level, a basic mattress is meant to provide you support and comfort while you sleep. This may be why you bought your mattress in the first place.

As you might have experienced firsthand, mattresses don't last forever. They have a limited lifespan, after which they wear out and become saggy and lumpy. This is caused by your body's weight depressing the mattress over time until it becomes uncomfortable to sleep on. Having sex can speed up this process greatly.

Not only is it a physically extensive activity for you and your partner, but it also affects your mattress. The mattress is inflicted with a barrage of physical attacks frequently. This is never good for the lifespan of a mattress. The average mattress won't be able to withstand that level of abuse for a long time.

After a while, you will end up with a worn-out mattress that isn't good for anything. So, what can you do?

Mattresses Designed for Sex

The problem with normal mattresses is that they are designed to absorb energy. This is counterintuitive in two ways: It wears your mattress out quickly, and it doesn't give you the necessary responsiveness during sex.

Having the weight of two bodies concentrated in a very small area of the mattress can only end in disaster. This results in a lack of response and fatigue from overworking yourself. All of this can turn you off sex completely.

The truth is that mattresses are an integral part of your sex life. The right mattress can make all the difference and help you perform well and enjoy your intimacy better. You would be surprised by how much of a change the proper mattress can make to your sex life.

There are mattresses out there that will specifically get your sex life up to speed. You can buy mattresses that have springs encased inside them. These mattresses will help you by providing a certain level of force feedback and bounce. They will also give some energy back to you. This means that you won't have to strain yourself by putting a lot of effort in. You'll be less tired and less fatigued, and you will more comfortable for longer periods of time.

An added benefit of these mattresses is that they have more cushioning in certain points. This will ensure that the mattress wears out much slower than any ordinary mattress.

How to Pick the Best Mattress for Sex

Now that you are aware of the effects that a mattress can have on your sex life, it's time to pick the right one. You will have to consider the type of mattress for sex and certain criteria when picking out a decent mattress, as not all of them are viable.


Having a proper bounce will retain your energy so that you put in less effort. It will also make it easier to maintain proper rhythm throughout.


Your mattress will need to be durable to withstand the constant pressure and force applied to it. It will need to be able to last a long period of time without changing.


Some mattresses can generate a lot of noise during the constant motions in sex. You will need to consider a mattress with decent springs that don't squeak too loud.


Comfort is key during long sessions that can exceed an hour or more. You will need a bed that has adequate padding and distributes your weight evenly on the surface.

If your ears have yet to be blessed with this mans heart warming music, you are missing out big time


I understand country music does not appeal to everyone out there but if you own a radio or have an instagram there is no way you have not heard the name Thomas Rhett before. Him and his childhood sweetheart Lauren live the closest thing to happily ever after one can obtain in this world. Not only did they adopt a beautiful toddler from Uganda but they just welcomed an adorable baby girl. I personally enjoy each of their posts because it revives my faith in successful relationships. These are a few of his lyrics that reestablish my belief that true love is still out there. Ladies, make sure you find yourself a Thomas Rhett.

1. "Cause everywhere we go girl you're the star of the show"


I mean come on thats just precious.

2. "I know that I can't ever tell you enough, all I need in this life is your crazy love"


I feel like thats a pretty good trade.

3. "Every time we have to say goodbye I'm counting down until we say hello"


If someone told me this I feel like my love for Zac Efron would rapidly dwindle.

4. "Girl that night was just like you, unforgettable"


Who doesn't want to be told they are unforgettable on a daily basis?!

5. "Cause you're all that I adore, you're the one my heart beats for"


Straight out of a Nicholas Sparks movie? I think yes.

6. "You're a saint, you're a goddess, the cutest, the hottest, a masterpiece"


Way better compliment than being told "your hot."

7. "Cause I've been waiting on her since the second grade and I wrote a little song about holding her hand now everyone wants to die a happy man"


If I still loved my second grade crush I don't think I would be writing a song about true love.

8. "I could try to find her get it off my chest now, but I don't want to mess it up so I wish her the best now"


This song gets me every time. He loves her so much that he would hold back his feelings in order for her to be happy. You get a Prince Charming and you get a Prince Charming!

9. "If all I got is your hand in my hand, baby I could die a happy man"


I would not be complaining if a guy was writing these beautiful lyrics about me. (Thomas Rhetts really beautiful wife pictured above).

Ladies, Sliding Into His DMs Is NOT Going To Make Him Want You More

But here's what will.


Ever since the beginning of time, the purpose of man was to hunt. It is embedded in their nature, and it's what gives them purpose. You've probably heard people say “let him chase you" and you've brushed it off as anti-feminist crap that you don't need clogging your mind. But it's true; that's what they crave and, of course, it's not all about the “chase," but it's a big part of it.

By starting this relationship yourself, he'll see you as easy, desperate, and someone he can easily take advantage of and that's not what we want. Hunters don't hunt animals that chase them. They hunt unique animals that are rare, even if they have to go through great lengths to catch them. If you slide into his DMs or start a conversation with him first, you'll never know if he was actually attracted to you for real, or just because you're presenting yourself as an easy catch. You want someone who's genuinely attracted to you from the start, don't you?

As the one being “hunted," you have all the power. You can control when you talk, for how long, when you see each other, and how often because he's waiting on you. You are the keeper of the keys to your kingdom and he can't get in unless you let him. Eventually, you're going to have to tell him everything about you, but don't dump it all on him right away. Give it to him in pieces, it'll leave him believing you're this mysterious girl he has to get to know. You have to keep him interested, or else he'll get bored.

This method is a great way to weed out the men with bad intent. If they want you that badly, they can wait for you, they will take the time to pursue you, to hunt you. And that, my friends, is how you find a good man.

If you want to read more about this whole dating method, I highly recommend a book called "All The Rules: Time-tested Secrets for Capturing the Heart of Mr. Right" by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider. Some things they say are a little outdated, as it was published in 1995, but most of these “rules" still ring true. My mom made me read it my junior year of high school and I literally live by this book, so if you're interested I suggest checking it out.
