Sex furniture is a wide world of elusive wonderment, at least for me. I’ve known about it for a while, sure, but it didn’t really go any further than that I knew it existed and somehow made sex better while allowing you to not have to hold yourself up as much while attempting to get into those “oh, right there, don’t stop” positions. Other than that, well, I really just had no idea. I received the Love Bumper Iceberg from Good Vibrations to test out for myself and see if sex furniture is really some big, complex world that I just never understood because I hadn’t experienced it for myself or if I haven’t really been missing much in my ignorance.
When the Love Bumper Iceberg arrived, I admittedly didn’t take it out to try very quickly. In fact, I kind of let it sit on the bed, on the floor, in the closet, back on the bed and my first real contact with it was using it as a lap cushion while using my netbook in bed. It is an awesome lap cushion for a portable computer, but aside from that, I really had no idea how to go about trying this wedge-shaped cushion out for its originally intended use, and so it hung out in my house for a very long time, untouched. One thing I noticed within the first few days of it hanging out in my bedroom is that its polysuede cover attracts a good amount of lint, fibers and cat hair and when you have two cats, that can be quite a big problem. Granted, the cover is washable, but because of the super softness of the cover and its very unique texture, it’s difficult to completely clean without more lint, fiber and hairs immediately sticking to it.
While the Love Bumper Iceberg does come with a few diagrams of cartoons that are meant to resemble human bodies showing you the many different ways you can use the Love Bumper Iceberg, the dimensions of the cushion (13 3/4″ x 13″ x 7 1/2″) seemed incredibly small to me; well, it’s either that or I’m bigger than the people the creators of this cushion had in mind when dreaming it into reality. It could very well be either one of those. Needless to say, when we did bring the Love Bumper Iceberg out, there was some really awkward fumbling, falling, echoes of ‘Does this feel right?’ and ‘Is it better this way?’ going on before finding a position that felt right that also lifted and arched my body in the right way.
After doing some research of other types of sex furniture on the market, I found that the Love Bumper Iceberg has a little something extra added to it to make it just a little more appealing. At the top of the wedge, there is a small pocket where you can slide in a small vibrator (about 1 1/2″ diameter) for added vibration. You can see how this works in the picture below.
Unfortunately, aside from the super basic vibrator you see tucked into the pocket of the Love Bumper Iceberg, no other vibrator I own could fit nicely into the pocket, which was a bit disheartening since I was looking forward to the possibility of having simultaneous clitoral stimulation from a vibrator while arched over the other end of the wedge.
Sadly, I was not very impressed with the Love Bumper Iceberg and doubt I will use it very much in the future. While we did get it into a position that worked eventually, it wasn’t that much better than the support I can give myself and I don’t find myself wanting to hold off on a moment in order to go and grab it in hopes of having a better experience over all, because frankly, it doesn’t make too much of a positive difference. Well, perhaps I’ll continue to use it as a lap cushion to keep my netbook propped up when working from bed with a nice mug of delicious coffee, but that’s about it.
