I Swung This Baby Right to the Trash

The Fetish Fantasy door swing by Pipedream is a unique spin on the traditional sex swing. While the product is sturdy and adjustable, it is not for everyone. In addition to not supporting all body types, there is no swinging movement (since you are pressed against a door). Even though the product is affordable, I recommend investing some extra money in a more comfortable swing.

Use

The Fetish Fantasy door swing by Pipedream is a lightweight product that provides support for sexual activities. Unlike a traditional sex swing, this product is designed so that it fits over a door. What you need to do is place the handlebars over the top of the door and close tightly. I highly recommend that you lock the door as well, to ensure that it doesn't open during use (if it opens, you will fall).

Once you have the swing attached to a door, you will need to adjust the straps. They are very long, so no matter your height (and your partner's), you should be able to find a position that feels comfortable. In my case, my boyfriend is much taller, so I had to make the straps very short. It was hard for me to get into the swing, so to fix that issue I just grabbed a chair. I stood on it until I got myself settled in the straps; my boyfriend took it away once I was in position, and we were good to go!

The Fetish Fantasy door swing can be used with a partner or by yourself. If you do use this swing for solo activities, please use caution; there are arm and leg straps, but nothing else for support (i.e. no back strap or seating). Personally, I could not use it for masturbation since I don't have much upper body strength. However, my boyfriend is much stronger and had no problem holding himself up with one arm. So, just listen to your body!

Additionally, since the straps are adjustable, you can try a variety of positions with this swing. The ones we tried included: standard sitting forward with arms and legs through the straps, sitting backwards (facing the door), and standing. I'm sure there are a ton of other positions you can try, so be creative (just be careful)!

Design / Craftsmanship / Material

The best thing about the Fantasy Fetish door swing is how easily it can be adjusted (using the plastic clips) without compromising the product's strength and durability. The box says that the swing can support up to 300 pounds. While I cannot be 100% positive, since both my boyfriend and I are lighter, I think the straps could support more as long as you use a strong door. The nylon straps are rather heavy-duty and seem like they would be able to handle quite a bit.

When stretched to the maximum length, the arm straps are 16 inches long and the arm holders (the circular area) have a circumference of a little over 14 inches. The leg straps measure 45 inches long at their longest and the holders have a circumference of 25 inches. Keeping in mind those numbers, big, beautiful men and women may not feel comfortable in these straps. My boyfriend has very muscular thighs and had a hard time getting the straps around his legs. Even though he was able to get into the harness, he wasn't completely at ease.

For added comfort, there is a padded piece in both the arm and leg straps, which is like a cuff. The cuff is made of neoprene and acts as a buffer between one's skin and the straps. Since the straps are nylon, they can become uncomfortable, particularly if most of your weight is leaning on them. Thankfully, the neoprene cuffs are a protective barrier. Personally, I think they could use a bit more padding though.

A problem I had was that my hands became raw after a while, from gripping the nylon straps. Even though the product is well-made, you do need to hold on pretty tight. The reason being that you must support your body weight. There is not a back strap or seat of any kind, so you do need some strength to use this product. While I had no problem supporting myself (as long as I used both hands), my palms became very sore after about 30 minutes.

Performance

Personally, I found the Fetish Fantasy door swing to be more of a hassle than it was worth. While it was easy to set up and strong enough to support rougher sex, it was just not what I had expected. The product did not swing at all, which I guess I should have noticed beforehand since you are literally up against a door; I found this to be really disappointing. It has the same affect as having my boyfriend pin me against the wall. In fact, being pinned is a lot sexier than using product.

I did try some other positions as I mentioned earlier, but the only one that really worked well was the traditional position (sitting forward with my back against the door, using both the arm and leg straps). When I turned around, my knees kept banging into the door. After 5 minutes, my knees were red; that was nothing compared to the bruises I had the next day. When I stood up with my feet in the leg straps, I felt secure and sturdy. However, after awhile, the arches of my feet became sore. So, back to sitting forward it was.

In order to make the most out of this product, we tried a few different sexual acts. In additional to vaginal penetration, my boyfriend used some of my favorite toys on me. We also both took turns performing oral on one another. Since the leg straps spread one's legs, my boyfriend found the swing to be great for eating me out. Lastly, we both tried to masturbate in the swing. I found it too difficult to support myself with just one arm, but my boyfriend is much stronger and was able to pleasure himself.

No matter what we did, the so-called swing became very uncomfortable. Even with the neoprene cuffs, the material will dig into the skin after awhile. My legs were extremely irritated after use. Additionally, my palms were rubbed raw from having to grip onto the nylon straps.

Something to take into consideration before buying this product is the strength of the doors in your house/apartment. In my home, the doors are hollow but the wood is still pretty thick. With the door locked into place, there was no problem whatsoever. However, my friend borrowed this and her door actually cracked. She is far from overweight at 135 pounds, so her size was definitely not an issue. If you don't have access to sturdy doors, I suggest you pass on this product.

Furthermore, not only does the door have to be strong, the person using the swing needs to be able to support himself or herself fully. Since this product is basically designed with minimal support, it will not hold you (which is why my hands hurt so badly from gripping the straps).
    • Aids in positioning
    • Uncomfortable

Packaging

The straps are in plastic bags inside a fairly large white box. The packaging is far from discreet, since the box is covered in pictures of a woman using the swing. I wouldn't suggest leaving the box out in the open, unless you live alone (or with a partner) and don't have company over very often.

I didn't see any reason to keep the box, since the straps can simply be folded for storage. Therefore, I decided to just recycle the packaging.

Furthermore, there was a little surprise inside of the box: a black eye mask. It wasn't anything special, but it blocks out light pretty well.
    • Not discreet
    • Recyclable

Care and Maintenance

To clean the straps, I used soap and warm water on a rag. You can also use a cleansing wipe of some sort. However, unless you sweat or get some sort of lubricant on the swing, you shouldn't have to clean it very often.

For storage, I just folded the straps and placed them inside a dresser drawer. I thought the box was too big, but you do have the option of using it. Of course, it is totally up to you!
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Personal comments

After trying very hard to like this product, I had to give up and admit defeat. I absolutely hate spending money on toys and then not using them, but the Fetish Fantasy sex swing needed to go. Although I could easily hold myself up, the swing was uncomfortable and not as versatile as I would have hoped. As the title of this review suggests, I threw out the product.

    Too bad you threw this out. You may want to try selling items you don't want in the classified section of EF. That way it is not a total loss for you.
