I had been lusting after a Liberator wedge for some time to see if I would like it before diving into larger purchases like the ramp or other pieces of their furniture. Betty’s Toy Box was kind enough to provide one for me as my first review with them and so far you can color me impressed. I knew to expect a smaller box than one might think as Liberator compresses their items before shipment and I got such a kick out of opening up my package and seeing it expand. Sadly I didn’t think to get a picture before pulling it out of the zippered bag it came shipped in (which just might be a great place for toy storage cause I know I’m never cramming the wedge back into it!)
Upon putting the lovely purple cover onto the wedge itself, I was struck by the feeling of the material. It is a microfiber that has an almost velveteen feel to it. And my immediate response was to recoil from it. Something about the way it felt in my hands just wasn’t quite right. But when I laid on it and pressed my body against the fabric it didn’t bother me at all. Clearly I’m a bit of an odd duck. It also attracts dust, lint, cat hair, etc. like crazy, which you can somewhat see in the photo below.
I tried to squish it and compress it with just my hands to no avail. Holding onto it, it feels very sturdy and well made. My next test would be to sit on it and see if my plus size self could squish it that way. It gave beneath my weight, but I couldn’t fully squish or compress the material even at my size (I’m a 22/24/26 depending on the brand.)
So there went my concerns about being too heavy for the wedge. Additionally I used a gallon of water (8.34 US pounds) to see just how it would compress. The water made almost no impression in the material.
I am almost too wide for it though so the plus size wedge might’ve been a better choice for me, but with some care I can stay put just fine.
The Liberator wedge comes in measuring 24L x 14W x 7H and has a twenty seven degree angle that, on its first outing, my partner and I discovered it was great for fisting play. No more sore wrists for them and better angles for more sensations for me. I was excited to see how else we could use the wedge to improve our sex life. Turns out we found lots of ways both together and me by myself. One thing we found out is that it has to be pretty firmly wedged (see what I did there?) in place or things didn’t line up quite right. My butt was basically hanging off the edge to be comfortable if I was on my back. I could easily lay across it on my stomach for great blowjobs or have it under my hips for all sorts of fun, both on my back or stomach. I was comfortable no matter what position I laid in, including using it as a pillow for reading.
To some, the idea of sex furniture may seem a bit odd, but a position aid like this is doing amazing things for my sex life and I think it is something everyone should at least consider trying out. The versatility it brings is wonderful and that’s all the reason I need to keep the wedge close at hand. My experiences with it have led me to become a believer in sex furniture and I think anyone who wants a way to spice things up without bringing “traditional” toys into the mix should try the Liberator wedge and see what kind of fun you can create.
