The Launch Ramp to Liberation? Nope.

The whole point of Liberator Shapes is to enhance the sexual experience, not up the frustration factor. The design of this piece lead to more dissatisfaction than pleasure, and it ended up being nothing more than a pricey place to park our feet.

extremely useful review
I was a bedroom adventure gear virgin, on the lookout for something that would offer substantial anatomical support and positional variety, without needing a room of its own for storage. After a great deal of research and deliberation I decided to go with the Flip Ramp. It's the second largest Liberator piece offered here on Eden Fantasys yet it folds to a footprint half it's size, and in a pinch can double as a seat or foot stool.

Like every other Eden Fantasys order, the Flip Ramp arrived at my door in a plain brown box. The cube took up almost all of the shipping space, however, there was enough spare room for a small item and book. The official measurements (closed) are 19” x 19” x 14½” which are fairly close to the measurements of what I received. At its core, the Flip Ramp is squishy foam and it has a close fitting cover of polyester (inside) and microfiber (outside), so there will be a slight variation from unit to unit, probably half-an-inch at most along any edge. One thing I can't account for is the "official" weight. It's listed as 22lbs, but it's more like 5lb.

My hope was that the Flip Ramp would disappear into its surroundings, so I chose black microfiber instead of one of the flashier jewel tones. If I knew then what I know now, I would have opted for something more fun, like blue or purple. Everyone thinks it's an ottoman, so I could probably bedazzle it and no one would bat an eyelash over its presence. Black is not a turnoff, except that it shows every spec of lint that happens to land on it. It wasn't out of the plastic wrap ten minutes before it picked up an assortment of carpet fibers. It's easy to clean with a vacuum or damp cloth — machine washable if things get really sticky — but the sad truth is you will need to clean it often.

Maintenance is a fair trade off for increased fun, but the hoped for sexual improvements did not materialize. When used on our bed, the support offered by the Flip Ramp was questionable, and introduced an element of danger since slipping off the apparatus usually meant a three-foot trip to the floor. Used on the floor, it was too narrow to be comfortable for both partners. The person on top got the short end of the stick since there was no cushioning for the knees and no place to rest the arms when leaning forward.

There was more than one attempt to make it work, but we ended up abandoning the Flip Ramp for a plain mattress everytime. In this household the Liberator was downgraded from adventure gear to footrest. It's a nicely made product, but it failed in its intended purpose and it makes me hesitant to spend that kind of money again. If I knew then what I know now, I would have chosen the Liberator Wedge. The 24" width would be comfortable for both partners, and it's overall size is small enough to store easily.
Experience
We tried, we really did! We started with the Flip Ramp on the bed. Opened fully (i.e. to the lower height of about 11" and approximately 38” length) the lower end accommodated my womanly hips in a comfortable curve, however, there wasn't enough room for my husband to plant his arms. We decided to reverse positions — husband on the bottom, me on top — but the added height of the ramp combined with the wobbly support of a padded mattress top placed more stress on my thighs.


On to Plan B: we decided to mimic the the official picture — my head in the lower curve, butt on the higher end — and that was worse. Almost immediately I began slip-sliding down the microfiber. It felt great against my skin, but the sensation of dangling upside down and wondering if I was going to take a nose dive off the side of the bed was a mood-killer.


The price of this item made it “too big to fail” so I flipped over hoping doggy style would be better. It wasn't. I continued to slip forward, and my husband disliked that his legs hung over the side of the mattress. A Queen-size bed with headboard and footboard was clearly not the ideal place for the Flip Ramp, so we moved to the floor.


We felt better supported on a stable surface, however, the microfiber was no less slippery and the narrow width didn't agree with this average-sized couple. Whoever was on top was required to remain upright since there was no resting spot for arms or other parts.

At least it makes an awesome foot rest.

    Thank you for the detailed review! Sorry you had to waste money on such a disaster piece, the Flip Ramp matches its name, 'flipping' you off its side!

    Thanks for the review. I'm sorry this didn't work for you. I have lots of liberator pieces, but not this one. I agree that a wedge would have been a much better starting piece for you.
