Sex furniture is nothing new to the world of adult products. I have come across a slew of blow-up chairs, bottomless stools, wedges, pillows, chairs, and sex swings. But the Liberator Esse certainly takes the cake when it comes to elegance, versatility, and sturdiness. Not only does it look sexy, but it’s also low to the ground and has some of the sexiest curves I’ve seen on any sort of furniture!

The Esse is velvety to the touch and can be used in so many diverse ways that it’s almost shocking. It is a rather large piece of furniture and takes up a lot of space in my bedroom, but since it can be used for more than just sexual purposes – I don’t mind. I’ve used it for reading, a laundry perch, and so much more!

Sex furniture can be a huge investment and in most cases, it’s totally worth it. In the case of the Esse, it is more than worth every penny I spent on it, unlike some sex swings I’ve invested in in the past. This piece has covered all bases and helped my partner and I get into so many positions we never would have been able to try without it.

What Is The Esse?

The Liberator Esse is, as I have already mentioned, a piece of sex furniture. Or in the case of the Esse, it is basically a curvy couch, specifically designed to be an extra comfortable place to have sex. This sex couch comes with two pillows, a comfy headrest, and a mini scoop to help with positioning. The pillows can be used with the couch or on their own… more on that later.

Everything comes vacuum sealed and the foam releases quickly once you have it set up. The foam is sturdy enough to hold up a good bit of weight but comfortable enough to lounge around on all day. The foam is protected by moisture-proof liner and its velvet covering, the material is actually called Velvish, made of a machine washable material that is easy to remove. 

The Esse is 23 inches high at the head of the couch, I was able to add an additional 5 inches with the headrest pillow. At the center, it’s 9.5 inches, perfect for positioning those with shorter legs. This can be flattened out using the mini scoop, bringing it to an even level with the footrest. At the foot, the Esse is 16.5 inches in height. 

Suggested Positions

Liberator Esse – Grey

The position called “Curve Control” happens to be the go-to for my partner and me when we use the Liberator Esse. To get in this position my partner braces her knees in the scooping curve, while leaning her arms against the headrest, and I position myself behind her with my knees on the smaller curve. It’s a sort of reformed doggy style that really helps me to get in deep and hit all the right spots.

Another position that we both enjoy is the “Rising Star.” In this position, my partner sits on the headrest, while I rest my knees in the scoop. This takes a bit more balancing on her part but gives her more control in how deep I can go. It also puts us face to face so that we can kiss as we go at it, this makes definitely one of the more romantic options.

When my partner is feeling exceptionally frisky, she loves the “Let’s Bounce” position. This is where I lay in the scoop, with my head on the headrest as I rest my feet on the smaller curve. She then mounts me in reverse cowgirl, with her feet in the scoop beside my hips, and, well… bounces. This position is especially tug-tastic when I just want to lay there and enjoy the ride.

There are a ton of other ways to use the Esse, I haven’t even touched on our favorite oral sex positions! 

Cleaning Process

Cleaning the Liberator Esse is much easier than it might seem. While it is a rather large piece of sex furniture, cleaning it couldn’t be simpler. There is a zipper that runs along the length of the couch which allows me to completely take the velvet cover off the foam.

The cover can then be thrown in the washing machine and dried in the machine. Once it’s clean, it zips back around the foam. While it is washing, I take an antibacterial wipe and clean the entire moisture-proof lining that is found under the Velvish cover.

The pillows are made in the same way as the couch, and I clean them in the same manner. As I mentioned before, the pillows can be used without the couch, and ours gets a fair bit of use. We use ours flipped on to their curve and rock the pillow rather than thrusting.

Any lube or bodily fluids that get on the couch or pillows come out easily, I have found that the smell of our detergent lingers after it has been washed.

Final Thoughts

The Liberator Esse is 100% TugBro approved. This sex couch has vastly improved our sex life and every sex position we could imagine. We have gotten into more sex positions than I care to try to recount thanks to this lovely piece of furniture. 

There are many positions in which we can get ourselves, and I love that we can use the pillows without the couch. We even went to the Liberator website to see if there were other positions that we hadn’t thought of yet, and boy do they have an imagination far beyond our limits! The positions they suggested were amazing and it’s actually where we found our favorites mentioned above.

This wonderful product has now become a staple in our sex life and we use it nearly every time we have sex together. Even if we don’t use the entire couch itself, we do use the pillows. The Liberator Esse has become a vital part of our exploration and has assisted in many positioning techniques that would have never been possible with a flatbed! I can’t stress enough how much this product has spiced up our sex life, I’m confident it will be an invaluable addition to anyone’s collection.

Whether I use it to lay on while reading or screw my partner silly on, it’s been an amazing addition to my bedroom.
