Improvise with Jaz

The Jaz is a great addition to the bedroom. The Jaz really does make great sex more enjoyable, more comfortable, and longer-lasting. Changing positions is fluid and streamlined, and the new angles make old standbys into new favorites. The Jaz is perfect if you’ve been hesitant about other sex furniture due to size and/or discretion. The Jaz looks at home in bed, and you'll want it to remain close by for improvising when the creative mood strikes.

extremely useful review
The Liberator Jaz is a newcomer to Eden’s ever-expanding selection of Liberator sex furniture. A smaller take on the classic Wedge, the Jaz measures 18 inches wide, 14 inches deep, and provides 6 inches of lift. In addition to being slightly smaller than the Wedge, the Jaz is more rounded around the edges and is wrapped in a new two-tone microsuede cover.

Close-up
The Jaz is constructed of a firm, non-latex foam wrapped in two zippered removable coverings. The inner cover is a water-resistant coated nylon fabric that protects the foam from fluids. The outer cover is a synthetic microsuede fabric that is velvety to the touch. Each cover features a zipper on the back of the wedge that allows the cover to be easily removed for cleaning. A small patch with the Liberator name and logo is stitched onto the side of the Jaz. The stitching that holds the panels of fabric together is neat on the outside (barely visible) and appears quite sturdy on the inside. The only noticeable defect is that there were a few unfinished threads that caught in the zipper. However, armed only with a small pair of scissors, the rouge threads were easily eliminated.

The microsuede is difficult to keep your hand off of. In addition to the amazingly smooth texture, the fabric acts just like suede, becoming lighter or darker when you stroke it with or against the grain. The Jaz I received is cherry red with black contrast panels on the side. While the black isn’t so exciting, the red microsuede is almost iridescent when it’s smoothed down and catches the light just right.

Practical Considerations
The Jaz’s cover is easy to remove and easy to wash, just remove, rezip and wash on gentle with cold water without bleach. It is dryer friendly, but due to the synthetic materials, you’ll want to use low heat.

Due to its smaller size and rounded corners, the Jaz does well in terms of discretion. I recently moved, and during the time that potential renters were viewing the apartment I had intentionally left the Jaz out in the open, sitting with the rest of the pillow on the bed. I carefully watched the prospective tenants as they looked at the bedroom, and not a single one out of six showed and sign of surprise or recognition that the red “pillow” was technically a sex toy. I think that as long as the Jaz is in the context of other pillows, no one would be the wiser. Of course upon closer hands-on inspection, the Liberator logo might be noticed, and may be recognized.

Aside from use during sex, the Jaz is also makes a nice back prop for reading or watching TV in bed. The Jaz can also function as a lap rest for notebooks and laptops. These all could be plausible explanations that could divert attention from its intended primary use.

Packaging
The Jaz is simply wrapped in plastic wrap with a paper-board band around it that features the product name and information. Unlike some of the other Liberator pieces, the Jaz did not include a booklet of recommended positions. All that’s included is a picture on the package of the model resting on the Jaz and a brief description of the product. For cleaning recommendations, you have to check the instructions on the tag inside the microsuede cover, or check the Liberator website.

Other Concerns
Some people might find that Liberator's marketing (including the packaging for the Jaz) is a bit gendered and overly normed. There are only female models on the Jaz packaging, and the vast majority of Liberator's online materials are oriented at hetero couples where the female is receiving. There are exceptions to the gendered power norms, but I couldn't find any examples of same-sex couples enjoying their Liberator furniture. Also absent was any reference to males receiving anal, though there were plenty of suggested positions for females receiving. Those who are sensitive to these concerns should remember that dollars are votes; if you like Liberator but disagree with their support of outdated norms, you may want to let them know.
Experience
I can’t believe I waited so long to try sex furniture. I previously tried pillows to no avail, as they squish down and shift out of position. Unlike pillows, the Jaz is made of a firm foam that keeps it shape, even with weight on it. The shape you see is the shape you get in use. Furthermore, unlike pillows, the Jaz stays put. The microsuede has a frictional affinity for other fabrics, and “locks” into place on my bedspread. Despite an extended session with my partner, with multiple position changes, the Jaz stayed exactly where we put it.

The Jaz happened to arrive the night we were making dinner at my place. While she was having fun introducing my knives to the vegetables, I sneaked away from making the rice. Quietly unwrapping the Jaz and placing it on the bed, I tried various positions to assess their comfort. My absence was eventually noticed, and I was caught on my back, legs high in the air. All I got a quick smile and a reminder to get back to cooking. I agreed, but continued to think about all the fun we might have following dinner.

After dinner, it was time for dessert. I had read that wedges make oral sex easier for the guy, allowing him to go down longer. After warming each other up and stripping each other down, I grabbed the Jaz and placed it under her. At first, she felt a bit award and exposed, but I reassured her how much I loved the view that was now presented to me. A few nibbles later, she quickly agreed that the 6 inches of elevation really does make a difference. She added that the incline made it easier to direct my head. I could only happily agree, ecstatic about how comfortable I was.

After her fill of clitoral orgasms, she asked for penetration. It became apparent that she also had been thinking about positions while cooking; she grabbed the Jaz, and flipped over on top of it so I could enter her from behind. I smiled as I realized that I wasn’t the only one whose mind has been elsewhere earlier. Again, what a difference 6 inches (of elevation) makes. Not only was the sensation of penetration and thrusting enhanced, but I also felt better balanced, allowing me better use of my hands, something that’s usually lacking during rear penetration. After a bit she flipped over again and put her legs in the air. In this position we were both able to enjoy the deep penetration we had each secretly been craving that night.

Taken as a whole, in addition to enhancing positions by making them more comfortable and by adjusting the angle to “hit the spot”, the Jaz also allows for fluidity in position changes. Several positions that provided unique sensations were possible moving only ourselves, without need to move the Jaz (which happily stayed locked in place on the bedspread).
