Best Mattress for Sex

Today I’m tackling the million-dollar question, what is the best mattress for sex? For this guide, we’re going to look at the major criteria that make a mattress better or worse for sex. Some factors may not be that important to you, while others may be absolutely critical. We’ll be breaking down each mattress based on these criteria so you can find the best mattress for sex.

Bear in mind, we’re not going to talk much about sleep in this analysis. You should definitely consider how a mattress feels and sleeps in addition to how it performs for sex. Check out our full mattress review series for more on that.

Innerspring – WinkBed Mattress

The WinkBed mattress is a hybrid mattress built with coil-on-coil innerspring construction and high-quality foam. The innerspring core results in exceptional bounce and strong edges, both important factors for bedroom activities. Truly a luxury mattress build, the WinkBed is on par with other high-quality innerspring mattresses. You could expect to pay $3,000+ for this mattress in a retail store.

Foam Feel – Leesa Mattress

The Leesa is one of my favorite mattresses when it comes to both sleep and sex. This mattress has a nice balanced touch in almost every area. Both the responsiveness and bounce are quite good, making for an enjoyable experience. The only area of weakness is the edge support, which is tough on most any foam mattress.However, it does a great job everywhere else.

For Couples – Helix Mattress

The Helix mattress is the only customizable mattress on this list. The Helix can be both very good or very average for sex. Since it’s customizable, your specifications, needs, and desires will dramatically influence how the mattress actually performs in your bedroom. The layers used in the Helix, notably latex and microcoils, help to solidify bounce and response.

Hybrid – Nest Bedding Alexander Hybrid Mattress

The Alexander Hybrid mattress is one of Nest Bedding’s most luxury level mattresses. Build from a high-end zoned coil system and topped with layers of memory foam and a thick quilted cover, the Alexander Hybrid creates a beautiful combination of great bounce, edge support, and comfort. The Alexander Hybrid has a quality and performance level that would put it in the $3-4K range in-stores, making it a steal at $999 for a Queen.

Latex Feel – Brooklyn Bedding Mattress

Brooklyn Bedding uses 4″ of TitanFlex foam, a responsive poly foam, to deliver great bounce and push back. This quick response from the foam combines with the pocketed coil support system to provide push back that helps improve sex enjoyment on the mattress. Strong edge support makes the Brooklyn Bedding a good all around option for both sex and sleep alike.

Purple Mattress

The Purple mattress is built from 3 layers of foam and gel polymer. The gel polymer is really what makes the Purple unique. This patented hyper elastic polymer creates impressive cooling, bounce, and instantaneous response. A leaner 9.5″ profile gives it a clean and modern aesthetic in any room. This mattress is a great choice for sleepers who want the added bounce / response, but don’t want coils.

Loom & Leaf Mattress

The Loom & Leaf is a luxury foam mattress designed for maximum comfort and cooling. That said, it still performs strongly for amorous activities. Despite the multiple layers of memory foam, it has good bounce and is responsive. The L&L is one of my personal favorites. It’s a great all around mattress that can be enjoyed by most sleepers and lovers alike.

Best Mattress for Sex Rating Criteria


A mattress response time means how fast it adjusts to your body as you move around. Mattresses with slower response times can feel like having sex in quick sand. An ideal mattress for sex will rapidly adjust to your change in movement and positions so you are well supported on a stable surface.


The bounce of a mattress relates to the feel when it’s being compressed. A mattress with good bounce will rebound, as opposed to simply absorbing your impact. During sex, this can help to create a consistent rhythm that works with you and not against.


Let’s face it, sometimes you need a certain degree of discretion. Some mattresses can be extremely loud during sex, drawing unwanted attention. An ideal mattress for sex will help to keep the noise to a minimum.


The overall durability of the mattress will surely be put to the test during sex. A good mattress for sex should be able to standup to years of consistent amorous activities.

Edge Support

Many sex positions require, or are significantly improved, by a stable and strong edge. Mattress edges that collapse under pressure can make for a less than ideal experience. The best sexy-times mattress will be one that supports pressure and weight directly on the edge of the mattress.


And lastly, we have comfort. If the mattress creates pressure points on your body during sex it can limit your desire and amount of time you actually want to be there. The ideal mattress for sex will be one that doesn’t create pressure points in any position.

Best Mattresses for Sex Compared

Mattresses are judged on the above 6 criteria and are given 1 of 3 ratings.

  • Great – This is the best rating. A great rating indicates it’s one of the very best choices available for that respective category.
  • Good – Much better than the average, but hasn’t quite broken into the great / exceptional level for that category.
  • Okay – Doesn’t mean bad, but just not a particularly strong functional area of the mattress. If you have a specific need that’s very important to you and it’s rated okay, you’ll want to think twice about making that purchase. For example, If you have kids / roommates and having a quiet mattress is important you’ll likely want to avoid a mattress with coils (which all receive “okay” ratings in the noise category) due to the extra noise they can create.
