Sex Swing Spring Issue (some brands)

So over the last year or so, we have noticed an issue with the spring and chain on four different brands of swings. These would be the swings by

Fetish
TLC
Trinity
Lux Fetish

So first, we are not sure why this same issue is happening in all 4 of these brands and no place else. Is this a product of using the same manufacturer? Copying each other’s products? Not sure, but it is an issue well actually there are two issues. It is just a mystery which on you will get.

Problem A

You receive a chain and spring. The spring has a closed loop on each end, so there is no way to attach it to the swing. I have sometimes seen where they send you an extra link to connect the chain to the spring, but many times they do not. Without a link, if you need the swing to be lower, you have to go to home depot and buy an extra link to make the change connect to the spring.

Problem B

In some cases, they attach the spring to the chain ahead of time. They use the same spring with a closed loop on each end, but the chain attached. With them attached, if you have a lower ceiling or a stand or something and you need to remove the chain you can not. So if you do not connect to the end of the chain, it is left just hanging and banging and is very annoying. So the best option is to deal with it, or cut it off and get the additional link like in Problem A

Now I have seen both of these problems in each of these swings. So it is a mystery. You never know what problem you are going to get until you open the box, but you will probably get one of them

The good news is, there is a 50% chance it will work for you. If you have the chain permanently attached, there is a 50% chance you can live with it. If it does not attach at all, there is a 50% chance you can live with it.

I am sorry that this happens. These problems are something beyond out control.

Now one option to cure all of it is to just purchase a spring in our accessories section. The spring we sell is rated for 300 pounds compared to the one that comes with all of these brands and is only rated for 200 pounds. So this may be a good upgrade to your swing anyway.

Here is a quick video as well to help further explain this issue.

 

Sex Swings and Swivel Hooks

So spinning sex swings are pretty popular. Unfortunately there are only a couple on the market. The TLC Spinning, the Madame Ang Twist, The Fetish Spinning swing and the Trinity 360. Other then that, the swings do not spin.

So maybe you want a swing that is not on this list, or you bought a swing, and now you wished you had gone with the spinning swing. Well, the great news is, you can add a swivel hook to any single hook swing and allow it to spin.

Now it is important to mention that you can not add two swivel hooks to a dual hook swing. If you do so, it will not spin. I know, I am blonde, and I would have done this myself, but it will not work. We find these orders all the time in shipping where people order a dual hook and two swivels. It will not work. Just think about it for a minute. Now you get it?

Here are some of my videos about swivel hooks.

 

Product Packaging and Graphic Images

Screamer Sex SwingsOne question we get a lot here is about the instructions with the Screamer Sex Swing. Well, the Screamer and all the other products by Madame Ang come with a business card with a URL and QR code to get the instructions.

Some swings come with instructions and graphic packaging, and some do not. Here is a list.

Brands with graphic images on the box or in the instructions:
Trinity
Fetish
Whipsmart
Ouch!
Sportsheets

Brands without graphic images on packaging:
Madame Ang (Screamer)
Dick’n Jane
Stockroom
Strict Leather

So here is the thinking. When boxes are shipped all over the world, there are a lot of people that may see the contents of the box. The wrong people looking inside can cause a lot of problems.

…Customs agents in many countries open boxes.
…Boxes accidentally opened in the mail.
…Boxes opened by Kids

As such, some swings choose just to leave their instructions online. There are many places they can be found including being found on this site by visiting our instructions page.

For information about positions, I recommend our position video that can be found here

The packaging is only one consideration when buying a swing, check out our buyers guide for more information.


Be Proud of Your Sex Swing!

Sometimes it is best to just not worry about hiding the sex swing hook in your ceiling.

One of the most important things I have learned over the years of doing a sex swing business is just to be proud of who you are and what you do. Do not hide it.

When I first got into this business, I blogged about sex swings without ever showing my face online. I did not tell anyone in my small conservative town what I did for a living for fear of being shunned. I kept things very secret.

What I learned is that the secrets and the hiding make a lot of stress in your life and that can lead to unhappiness.

If you try to hide your sex swing, you may spend so much time making up excuses or worrying someone will see the eye hook that the level of stress will equal or exceed the pleasure you get from the swing. This is not a good way to live.

So after a couple of years, I just changed. I took ownership of what I do. I am proud of my business. I started creating YouTube videos to teach people. I stopped hiding what I was doing from everyone in town. I just let go.

Then an interesting thing happened. Without the stress and just being out there, my business started to grow rapidly. I began to have more fun. And all those people that I thought would shun me, instead bought swings from me. Now, I am sure there are a few prudes that try to avoid me now, but those people were probably not worth my time in the first place.

So here is the secret to happiness and being yourself.

If you are trying to hide something such as the fact that you own a sex swing, remember that everyone else in your circle of family and friends is human as well and by nature, they are probably hiding something from you as well. Maybe they even own a sex swing themselves.

Just by being open you may find that you are more like some of your friends then you ever knew because you were both trying to hide parts of your life. If not, find better friends.

Oh – and avoid the hypocrites, you know those ultra-conservative politicians that get caught in a sex scandal or something like that.

Now I know this was not really about sex swing and more about happiness, but in my life, the sex swings have brought me joy. If you want more of my opinions on swings, visit the sex swing reviews section.

Sex Swings in Concrete Ceilings

One of the most common questions I get is how to mount a sex swing in a concrete/cement ceiling. I had no idea that so many horny folks lived in industrial lofts. Then again, I would love to live in an industrial loft rather than my basic ranch construction home. So, my envy pours out and makes me find a solution for your needs.

Well there are a few options that you can use if you are in a loft. Typically people living in building with concrete ceilings will also have high ceilings, so I will include that information as well so you can get using your swing right away.

Option 1: The easiest option is to just purchase a sex swing stand. The stand does take up space when set up and is a little expensive, but it is quick and easy to assemble and safe so you can not argue with that. The swing stand will also be around 6.5-7 feet tall, and that will solve your ceiling height problems.

Option 2: Anchors in your ceiling. It is possible to drill into concrete and install an anchor that can support your weight. Doing this will require some special tools and knowledge such as the structural integrity of the concrete you are mounting to. As demonstrated by this guide, you can easily see there are anchors that are strong enough to do the job, but you really should hire a contractor for this project and you should check with your HOA as well. Tell them you are hanging artwork or something. If you have high ceilings you may need to purchase extra chain at your local home improvement stores.

Option 3: Many buildings with concrete ceilings are industrial lofts, and thus have an industrial decor. We have a number of people that install the swings in their hallway. They mount the anchor bolts into the wall studs on opposite sides of the hallway and use a sex sling or dual hook swing. Then when they remove the swing, they use the big eye bolts to hang picture frames with a very industrial look. Nobody will suspect a thing.

Option 4: A great option is to use a swing such as the Screamer Dual Hook Sex Swing or the Whip Smart Sex Swing where you can remove the straps. Then use a bar in your doorway as shown in this video. The drawback here is the lower weight limit of around 200 pounds.

Option 5: Well if you are into this sort of thing…. You can always SHARE! Find your hottest friends and come to an arrangement where you will buy a swing if they agree to install it at their place. PARTY! Do not forget the beer!

If you have any other ideas that I could pass on, please let me know. I think I should move into a loft just to experiment. I think I have more hooks in my shop and in my house than anyone on the planet!
