Okay, so here's the skinny. A friend of ours told us that she r e a l l y w a n t e d one of these for her and her husband, but they were pricey, so they built one. Then we opened the Times and read about a couple that ordered "The Sex Chair". You can read it here, The Plain, Unmarked Box Arrived, buy you might just want to save yourself the time and cut to the chase...
The sex chair is actually two chairs. One, the Tantra Chair is the higher priced alternative ($1200 on sale, down from $1500) and comes with a website of great naked videos of a pretty hot couple slowly "doing it" on the chair. The marketing is WAY better here:
This elegant furniture design, inspired by the female form, was created to enhance the sacred sexual positions of the Kama Sutra.The Tantra Chair gently guides and changes your pelvic angles during lovemaking creating amazing new sensations and unparalleled comfort.
The Esse Chair is the lower priced alternative ($500) and comes with a lot less heat. Just the chair and this straight ahead pitch:
By day this chair is a chic chaise lounge, a place to read, relax and unwind. By night, it is the ultimate love making lounger! You will lose yourself in the experimentation and sexploration.
After crawling around the Tantra Chair site for awhile, there is no reason NOT to buy this chair. It just looks like fun, and a hell of a lot more interesting than a new rowing machine. The only problem? Where to hide it when guests come over....
