A good love life is often crucial to the happiness and success of a relationship. There are also many health and emotional benefits that come with having sex. Unfortunately, many relationships struggle with this and aren’t as intimate as they might like. While there are many things that come into play when it comes to having a better love life, one that often gets underrated is the need for a good mattress.
An uncomfortable and low-quality mattress doesn’t exactly lend itself well to helping improve a couple’s sex life. Thankfully, as you can see if you read this blog post from Health.com, there are many mattresses out there that can provide that boost you need in the bedroom.
But with many options out there, how can you choose the best one? Well that is exactly what this article is going to take a closer look at.
Consider the Bounciness
While many people prefer soft and supportive beds for sleeping, these aren’t always the best mattresses for sex. In order for a bed to be great for your love life, it should have a good bit of bounce. The bounciness of a bed generally factors in things like the firmness of the bed, the materials used and the type of mattress it is.
In general, traditional innerspring mattresses will often produce the most bounce simply due to how they are built. But of course, a memory foam mattress that is on the firmer side with good responsiveness can also be a good choice.
If you want a mattress that has solid bounce, but is also great for sleep, there are plenty of hybrid mattresses out there. These will often provide some of the best qualities of different kinds of mattress, all rolled into one.
Think of the Noise
Dealing with a squeaky mattress throughout your escapades can ruin the mood quicker than almost anything else. Also, if you don’t live alone, the last thing you want is to wake up kids, roommates or neighbors by making too much noise.
As a result, you want to also choose a mattress that is relatively quiet. Every bed is different, so you may have to try sitting on a bed and/or moving around on it a little to see how loud it is.
Generally, latex and memory foam beds are quietest, and beds with springs are generally a little louder. Also, metal bed frames have a tendency to be louder than wooden ones, so be sure to keep that in mind as well.
Also, many of the beds that offer great bounce will unfortunately be a little loud. As a result, it is important to consider both factors when choosing a bed, and possibly opt for one somewhere in the middle with decent bounce, without the loud squeaks.
Solid Edge Support
Safety is also something important to keep in mind. When you’re in the heat of the moment, you may not always know exactly where you are on the bed and how much room you have to work with. Injuries and falls can happen, and you want to protect yourself and your partner from them as much as possible.
One of the best ways to do so is to choose a bed with some edge support. Even a slightly raised edge of the bed can quickly alert you when you are getting too close to the edge. Without this, you may never know you’re about to fall or roll off the edge until it’s too late.
Look for Something Cooling
Many people find it difficult to sleep when they’re too hot. It gets uncomfortable, sweating and simply not as good. Well, the same thing can often be said for sex. While the heat controls in your home and the blankets used can impact how warm you get, the mattress can also play a role.
Many mattresses retain a lot of body heat, and aren’t very breathable. This can lead to an uncomfortable and sweaty situation that most people don’t enjoy. Instead of suffering through this, make an effort to choose a mattress that offers great breathability and is cooling.
While foam beds are often the hottest, due to the fact that they often conform to your body, some use cooling gel to mitigate this. Do some research and check out the reviews of a particular mattress if you want to learn more about how cool it is.
In conclusion, choosing the right mattress can have a big impact on your love life. You want something quiet, cooling, supportive and responsive to provide the best results and comfort.
