Mattress Formulation and Your Fornication

Posted by Steven King on

You’re in the market for a new sleeping surface (aka a mattress). You know sleep directly impacts your health, so this is a big decision. Without adequate sleep, both in quality and duration, you’re more likely to suffer heart-related diseases and develop diabetes.

When you don’t get enough sleep, you probably spend more time being ornery and mean as well. This leaves your friends and family members no choice but to avoid your company. Your life and the lives of folks around you are miserable – that’s what is at stake here. 

As if that wasn’t enough to stress the importance of your pending decision, here’s another piece of compelling truth: we spend a third of our lives sleeping. You’ve heard that before, but have you ever done the math? Imagine this: if you are 30 years old, you have spent 10 FULL YEARS SLEEPING. Go ahead and say it…WOW! 

Your quest for a new mattress starts with a Google search or reading various consumer articles. There’s plenty of information to comb through as you attempt to narrow down the possibilities from among the 3,897 mattresses currently on the market. You want to ensure your end decision offers superior support and comfort – resulting in the recharging your brain and body need for optimum functioning. You want to bounce out of bed in the morning with a smile on your face.

But wait! Have any of your Google searches or articles mentioned one important function your new mattress should facilitate? GREAT SEX. Let’s travel back in time to seventh grade science class to see how your mattress selection can affect this facet of your life.

Isaac Newton’s third law of physics states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Shock absorption, also known as dampening, results in a loss of energy during the aforementioned action and reaction. These two concepts affect lovemaking taking place on the mattress.

An aggressive coil mattress (11-gauge or greater) will allow plenty of reaction to the action. Newton’s third law is gloriously at play while the occupants of the bed are enjoying the fruits of his observations. As a result, you will both smile in the morning! 

A bed made entirely of foam is designed to conform to your body to minimize pressure points – a good thing, indeed. However, a foam mattress is the ultimate shock absorber. The foam’s thrust-dampening characteristics work against your best efforts, virtually eliminating the wonderful action/reaction a good frolic demands. A moderate amount of foam over sturdy coils (referred to as a hybrid mattress) is ideal. You benefit from the foam in the way of comfort and the coils keep Newton’s third law alive.

If frolicking is a priority, consider a good quality coil mattress. Find one that offers an ideal balance for sex and comfort.
