For many couples out searching for a new mattress, they are not only testing the sleeping comfort of the bed, but also evaluating the suitability of the bed for sex. Most sleep doctors recommend that you only use your bed for two things: sleep and sex, so it makes sense that carnal activities should factor into the equation. Instead of embarrassing yourself at the mattress store, or guessing when purchasing a mattress online, we recommend relying on www.sleeplikethedead.com, the best unbiased mattress review and ratings site, to lead the way. They have gathered information from 370 people, regarding their experiences with their own mattresses, and have compiled them into a comprehensive ratings list. Here are their findings on general memory foam mattresses:
- Active Sex Friendly – D+
This rating rates how easy the bed is to move around on, and change positions. Memory foam on the whole gets a D+, mainly due to the participant sinking into the mattress, and the slow reaction of the foam.
- Bouncy – F
Suffice to say, memory foam mattresses aren’t going to help you along at all.
- Allows Discretion – A
This grade means that memory foam is excellent at keeping your private activities private. The mattress is quiet, and absorbs the energy being exerted on top of it.
- Durable – B
Memory foam is excellent at not showing the wear and tear of frequent use, both sleeping and otherwise. It maintains its support and comfort.
- Allows Many Positions – C
This category refers to the possibility of different comfortable positions on the bed.
While memory foam does relieve all pressure, it is difficult to move on, giving it the average grade.
Memory foam mattresses allow a position to be kept for a long time without pain or discomfort. This is due to the pressure relieving properties of the foam.
- Allows Faster Climax – B
This may, or may not be a benefit! This category is grading the mattress’ ability to provide “traction” for the participant. The idea behind this is that this “traction” decreased the amount of energy being used for the movement, and can result in quicker climax, without all the cardio.
- Whole Bed Suitable – A-
This is an overall grade of worthiness. Not a bad grade for memory foam!
The above ratings are for memory foam as a whole, but Comforpedic is different from regular memory foam. Their AirCool memory foam formula reacts and recovers quicker than regular memory foam does, making it easier to move and change positions on. Due to this, Comforpedic gets better marks from www.sleeplikethedead.com than other memory foam brands that are not as quick to react.
Another aspect to consider is which Comforpedic you are interested in. Commons sense would dictate that the softer the mattress, the deeper that you will sink into it and the harder it will be to move. Additionally, if partners are of drastically different weights, the heavier person will sink in further, and things may not line up as they should. If this is the case for you, or you are concerned about exerting too much energy trying to move, a firmer Comforpedic might be ideal for you.
Which ever Comforpedic mattress you choose, know that you can be comfortable and supported while sleeping, and it won’t hamper your sex life!
