It depends. In our old apartment (a one-room efficiency), there's no way unless it would have been in the kitchen. With this apartment (two bedrooms, one bathroom), we can easily put it in the middle of the living room or the spare bedroom. I've heard of some people placing their sex swing above their bed (since the bed's already there anyway, you certainly have the "room" there), but you do want to be careful as a squishy bed doesn't give you much leverage. To full be able to play with the sex swing, I'd say that you should probably count on four or five square feet of open space. You can do it with less, but you won't be able to stretch out on the swing as much. Does that make sense?
