A great addition for the missionary-style position

This simple little strap attached to straps is a comfortable and efficient way to achieve deeper penetration, relax the legs and enjoy being fully exposed. This is great for couples who favor the missionary position as well as the oral sex enthusiasts. Some will experience more g-spot stimulation than without the sling.

Use

The sex sling is designed to draw your legs up near the chest by placing your ankles in the ankle cuffs and the strap behind your neck. This allows the sling to hold your legs up as well as possibly allowing for deeper penetration and possibly aid in hitting the G-spot.

The sling is mainly a product targeted towards couples, but it could certainly be used solo if you wanted to keep your legs pulled up. For someone who uses toys in this position (while on your back, legs near chest) this could be useful. I can't say for sure this sling would be useful for anal penetration as I've never had anal sex, but if you like to use toys anally while and have a hard time finding a comfortable position for penetrating on your own, I think this would be a little helpful since it will pull your legs near your chest without you having to contort into funny positions or strain to hold your neck and legs up. Also, when the straps are adjusted to a tighter level, drawing your legs super close to your chest, this would make anal penetration easier from that position.

This isn't a very versatile product. It's intended to be used in missionary position and that's the way it works best. However, if you're really interested in getting a variety of different uses from it, you can also use the ankle cuffs on your wrists and wrap the sling around the butt of your partner so that you can pull him closer during missionary.

And while I don't find this position of any use, someone may: wrap the neck sling around your chest and have your ankles in the cuffs while lying on your stomach. This will pull your legs up closer to your rear. As I said, this was not a useful position for me, but I wanted to try as much positions as I could and list them in case it's handy for others.

Besides that, this is basically just going to serve the purpose of holding your legs up as it's intended.

The sling is great for those who like missionary with their legs resting on their partner's shoulders or those who just find it sexy to be in the position the sling puts you in -- all exposed and open!

The sex sling is user-friendly in the sense that it's easy and can be used by people of all ages. The couple who finds sex exhausting may find it less so with the sling and the couple who just can't get deep enough would enjoy this as well.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material

The sling is a simple design -- just a few nylon straps sewed together and cushioned with a soft lining for the cuffs and neck area. And 2 strips of velcro. That sums up the sling's design.

It's plain, simple and has proven to be plenty sturdy so far.


Materials


The material of the sling is mainly just nylon straps, and the neck pad is of neoprene. Think diving suit. Diving suits are usually made of neoprene, so if you know how those feel, this is similar only a little thicker. The nylon straps are exactly like the straps used to adjust length on a back pack.


Neck Strap
You have the neck sling with a thin foamy material, neoprene sewed onto it to add comfort to the back of your neck while in use. This part of the sling measures 10 1/2" long and a little over 1 1/2" wide. In all honesty, it doesn't look terribly comfortable to me since it looks like it will put a lot of pressure on my neck, but it actually is comfortable for me. Depending on the size/weight of your legs will determine how much or how little pressure your neck will be recieving while in use. Most average sized legs probably won't end up with a crick in the neck after use.

On the outer portion of the neck sling/pad (not the portion that comes into contact with your neck skin) there's a tiny black tag with "Sportsheets" embriodered on it in gold lettering. If you dislike this for whatever reason, you can simply cut it off without it effecting the strap itself.



On either end of this neoprene neck pad, you have a strap and a slider adjuster -- think back pack strap adjusters. That's exactly what this is. If you remember carrying a back pack that had the straps with the plastic slidey adjuster for shortening or lengthening the back pack's straps, that's exactly what the straps and adjusters are on is. The closer you slide the adjusters to the neck pad, the shorter length you have between your neck and legs. In other words, tightening them will bring your legs closer to your chest. Loosening will allow your legs some room to move and loosened fully, the sling won't hold your legs up on its own, unless you're tall. Below is a photo showing placement of and how you'll adjust the sliders.


The length you need will depend on how long you are. For my 5"2 size, I need to slide the adjusters all the way up next to the neck pad in order for it to hold my legs up without any effort from me. In this position, I have to remove the sling from behind my neck or loosen the adjusters in order to bring my legs from the bent-at-the-knee position. Sliding the adjusters just an inch apart from the neck pad allows me room to move my legs freely. But when on the tightest setting, my legs are pretty locked in this position, meaning I'm all exposed, there's no closing my legs or unbending my knees without undoing the adjusters or taking it off my neck. That's the point of this strap. Below is a photo of the strap around my neck and the ankle cuffs in my hands to give an idea of length.



These straps you use to adjust measure 1" wide and on the shortest setting (the one I need in order to "lock" my legs in that position) it measures 16" long from neck to ankle strap.

On the longest setting, there's 46 1/2" of strap between neck and ankle.

So this means the sling is going to accomodate a wide variety of sizes from super short like me to super tall. I doubt anyone would be too long for this, but if you're shorter than 5" you'll have more room to move your legs.

Ankle Cuffs


At the ankles you have the velcro cuffs, which also have a strip of that foamy neoprene material like the neck pad. The ankle cuffs measure 15" long (un-velcroed) but the foamy padding is only 10 1/2" long, then the last 5" is just velcro, no padding. However, most ankles will have the entire ankle resting on the foamy padding.

My ankles measure 7" around, and I'm able to tighten the velcro that tight without trouble. I'd say this will fit most ankles. I'm also able to fit the cuffs around my knees. Doing this and doubling the straps around the knees allow me to use the neck strap around my upper back, but in order for the sling to still hold my legs up, I do have to wrap the straps around my knees. This is due to my being short.


For the 6 months that I've had this sling, it's shown no signs of tearing, although it did come with loose threading where the neoprene strip is sewn onto the neck pad. It's not showing any signs of unravelling though. I expect it to last for a good few years before showing signs of damage.

The neck and ankle padding prevent the straps from scratching against your skin and causing irritation. The width of the neck pad makes an otherwise uncomfortable strap sufficient in not hurting my neck. Had there been no padding, the 1" straps would be irritating and the pull from holding your legs up would put pressure on the neck. The width of the pad makes things plenty comfortable, although I wouldn't go calling it super comfortable or plush. It's soft and foamy. The material is thick & sturdy enough to withstand some serious use.

I haven't experienced any discomfort due to the material or use of the product after long periods of time. It's totally comfortable all over.

Performance

While I don't use the sling each time we have sex, I do like it and enjoy using it. It's a simple product, and for those who aren't interested in missionary-style sex, you may find little use of it, but for us, it's handy.

Different ways to use the sex sling:
I can't say you'll find new fancy positions to use just by purchasing and using this sling, but I think most people who like deep penetration, or just like the position of having your legs up and all exposed will enjoy this for the long-term. I do.

During oral sex. While the sling definitely allows the penetrator to go deeper, my partner and I probably use it even more for oral. Oral is always part of our foreplay, but it always causes my legs to tremble like mad. With my ankles securely in the cuffs, my legs are held in place and the trembling isn't near as bad. It also takes your mind off focusing on the pressure you get in your legs after being in the same position for so long. Not to mention, it makes things easier for the giver of oral since the legs are held securely apart and in place. It places my legs further apart than when they're just bent at the knee, and this means my partner has more room. And lastly, what partner doesn't love being able to see everything while performing oral sex or having intercourse.

As I mentioned, as creative as I can be, I've not been able to come up with a new, unique way to use this really.

Lying on stomachYou can do as I said and use while lying on your stomach to draw the ankles/legs up near the butt, but this doesn't do a whole lot for me. I suppose being on all fours, and wrapping the neck pad around your arms/wrists instead of neck, and cuffing the ankles in would really hold your legs apart for a doggy-style position, but I'd probably recommend getting the restraint system or spreader bars if you're just interested in spreading.



Missionary while penetrator stands. I've tried to show in my photo above how this one can be done. While the reciever is lying down on the edge of a bed, the penetrator in standing position, you can wrap the neck sling around the penetrator's butt and use the cuffs to hold and pull your partner closer whenever you want.(Just pretend the pillow is your partner.) You can put your own wrists in the cuffs and just hold the strap below them for better control. However, there is a product that works just as nicely for this, also by Sportsheets. It's the Doggy-style sling. Both of these products work for this.

For G-spotting
I am really unsure if this sling will allow a position for g-spot stimulation for every single female. It does work for my easy g-spot though. I have a shallow g-spot that's easily stimulated by my partner's fingers as well as his slightly curved penis, so this is part of why the sling makes it so much easier to hit my g-spot with every thrust.

For those with hard-to-stimulate g-spots, this may not be enough to do the trick. I am pretty certain it will allow for deeper penetration for everyone though. If you're planning to use this in hopes of stimulating your g-spot during intercourse, I would also recommend putting a pillow underneath your rear. This will kind of double your chances of reaching a g-spot orgasm with the sling. You can also have your partner use his hands to hold your butt up, angling you upwards slightly, so that g-spot stimulation is more likely to occur.

Those are the only positions we've found to use the sex sling with. However, as it is, a product to aid in deeper penetration and to hold the legs up and apart, it's great. That's about the only way we really continued to use this.

Since putting your legs in the velcro cuffs and the sling around your neck is pretty easy and not at all time consuming, I'd say this is a very easy-to-use sling and won't be too much trouble like say, a positioning pillow you have to blow up each time you want to use it. This is always there and ready as is. Below is a photo showing you basically how the strap goes on, only your legs will be in the air.


Another great thing about the sex sling is the wearer can manipulate the adjustments and ankle straps themselves. You don't have to depend on someone else to unlock you or get the right adjustment.

According to Sportsheets, the sling can be used in combination with the Penetration Station and the G-spot Link, also products made by Sportsheets.

Packaging

Weighing only 0.25 oz and being totally foldable, you can easily toss this into a medium purse or luggage without others knowing what it is and without it adding bulk. The good thing about the sling is, even with the foamy padding, if it's all folded and crumpled up, it won't hurt it or be creased when you go to use it again.

Packaging

The sling comes in what I remember to be a clear plastic front and a carboard back. There was a paper insert that showed half-nude people in the missionary position using the sling. This tackies things up in my opinion and renders it non-gift worthy. Had it come wrapped in another plain plastic, I'd have gifted one to my sister. I personally would choose a different, more classy product/packaging as a gift. I have I believe the entire Sportsheets restraints line and each and every one have come with nude, trashy packaging. The packaging is not useful for storage either, for any Sportsheets product. It only takes up far more space than foldable restraints, slings and swings.

On the paper insert, it said "Relaxation and gratification come in many positions, and you can too! The Sex Sling can help ease you comfortably into new erotic discoveries."

Care and Maintenance

My own personal use hasn't resulted in a major need to wash this sling. It never really comes in direct contact with either of our privates or bodily fluids, so I've not been so concerned that I felt the need to wash with something other than a damp cloth, and that's not even necessary every single time. I mean, my ankles and neck aren't exactly bacteria-infested. However, upon washing it with a wet cloth, everything done well. It didn't damage anything or ruin the foamy padding. It actually didn't seem to absorb any moisture either, which was a plus. I have heard people say they've thrown this in a washer with no negative results, but I personally have not done that. I don't think it will hurt it though, but the multiple straps could get wrapped around in the washer and damage. If a good wash is necessary, I'd feel more comfortable advising to hand-wash it. It dries quickly and doesn't retain an odor after being damp.

It's possible that the nylon straps have been treating with a waterproofing agent since they don't seem to absorb liquids.

You could more than likely use a wet wipe to clean this. For any bodily fluids you want to "eliminate," you could use something along the lines of an antibacterial soap.

Experience

I must admit, I felt a little vulnerable the first time my partner and I used the sex sling. I just didn't expect to have my legs held so very far apart and not be able to close them. Being all birthday-suited up made me slightly nervous being this... open, but I ended up enjoying it and relaxing. My legs aren't ever so high in the air without this sling, but I kind of find it fun to occasionally have my legs stuck in the air and my partner either performing oral or intercourse in this position. It can be somewhat thrilling. If you're nervous about being so exposed or aren't totally comfortable being so exposed with your partner, I don't think I'd recommend this until you're sure you could be comfortable. Some people are and then some are just very nervous. It all depends, but once you're able to relax, it's very fun.

My partner loves the sling. He's crazy about being able to see everything so well, and this definitely achieves that. Since it's pretty hands-free, we're able to have our hands free to touch each other without one of us having to finally hold up my tired legs. I enjoy the sling so much because my all time favorite position is my legs resting on his shoulders and butt slightly elevated. The sling elevates my legs and does the trick well, but my partner can also add his hands to my rear to enhance deeper penetration on days when I can handle it that deep.

If you're a fan of missionary-style sex, I'd recommend this. If you're legs tire and enjoy the position of your legs being elevated or butt raised like me, this would probably be enjoyed by you. But if you happen to be more of a doggy-style person, I'd recommend the I like It Doggie Style Strap instead.
