Sling (furniture)

Sling furniture is usually a suspended, free-swinging chair or bed that is made of a framework connected to hanging straps or rope. When attached to poles or a frame for carrying, a sling becomes a stretcher, a simple form of litter.

Fetish sex slings

Sex slings are also used in the BDSM activities. Usually made of black leather, these slings are used to position the bottom with legs raised and spread to facilitate various sex acts. They are often used for fisting, anal sex, or multipositioning for sexual comfort, or discomfort if that is the main purpose.

Many products facilitate such positioning but few are truly user available in their home due to space restrictions. However some bed attachments have overcome the real estate needed to utilize this apparatus.
