Your partner isn’t the only one who needs to perform well in bed. In fact, you want the mattress you are lying on to do its part towards making the experience as enjoyable as possible too. That’s right; mattress priorities don’t just have to do with a good night’s sleep. In fact, the lovemaking aspect is just as important for most people as lumbar support and body contouring.
So, what makes a mattress the right fit for sex? You want a mattress that is firm but comfortable, durable, and has fast responsiveness (since most people don’t enjoy the sensation of sinking while trying to get sexy). Additionally, you want a surface that bounces back to give you support even during high activity. Unless missionary style is your only trick in bed, you are also going to want edge support. And let’s not forget the squeak factor. Noiseless mattresses are a must for romantic lovemaking.
Which are the best mattresses to have sex on? Read on to find out; it might just revolutionize your sex life.
Mars by Eight Sleep
The Mars by Eight Sleep is a hybrid with premium foam layers on top and pocket spring coils below. This gives the Mars the ideal combination for intimacy because it has the comfort of premium foam with the reactive design and cloud bounce feeling of springs.
The mattress is constructed of 2” of reactive foam, 2” of comfort foam, 4” of sleeved coils, and 3” of high density support foam. The combination makes it great for making love because it provides enough support so movement is quick and effortless while still giving you bounce. Additionally, the Mars is quite breathable and has good air flow for maximum cooling.

The Leesa Mattress by Leesa
The Leesa mattress is designed with a 3-layer foam construction. The top layer is made up of 2" Cooling Avena Foam and provides airflow and bounce for freedom of movement. The second layer is made up of 2” memory foam, which allows the mattress to contour to the body while offering pressure relief. The bottom layer is a 6" base foam layer, which helps to add strength, durability and structure without feeling too firm.
The Leesa mattress is ideal due to its cooling top layer and controlled bounce.
Layla Mattress by Layla
Layla is a memory foam mattress with infused copper. When combined with foam, copper forms a thermal channel that sucks up body heat and quickly carries it away—ensuring you’re cool all night, every night.
In addition to temperature regulation, copper has a firming response at deep compression areas where your body sinks in more, so is compatible for all types of sleepers, and all types of activities.
Luxury Firm by Saatva
Saatva’s Luxury Firm has extremely good edge support. Depending on which positions you favor, a strong mattress edge can mean the difference between success and disappointment. Additionally, Saatva has a unique coil-on-coil design with a lower base of hourglass coils and an upper layer of individually wrapped coils for maximum support and bounce.
The Saatva is an eco-friendly mattress, made entirely of environmentally-friendly materials including organic cotton, recycled steel, and memory foam.
Saatva markets the Luxury Firm as the perfect mattress for couples with different sleep needs. Sure, there are basic things that’ll make a mattress the best for sex, and the Luxury Firm offers some of those things - but what happens after? You’ll rest easy knowing both you and your partner are getting a great night’s sleep on your Saatva mattress.
Relaxed Firm by Loom & Leaf
A branch of the popular Saatva mattresses, Loom & Leaf is the luxury memory foam version. It boasts a quilted organic cover, cooling gel for a cool evening of intercourse, and 5 pounds of premium foam for added comfort and support. The last layer is also highly breathable, a big plus.
Loom & Leaf has one of the longest home trials, is all-American made, and offers competitive prices.
Luxury Plush by Zenhaven
If you like the idea of having a more natural experience, then you’ll appreciate Zenhaven’s mattress. It features 100% pure tree-tapped latex resting against your skin all night long. This is not only good for you, but can create a more erotic experience as the material instantly contours to fit your body.
Zenhaven is also mold and microbe resistant. The organic New Zealand wool doesn’t just sound luxurious, it feels that way. And, the Talalay latex offers 5 levels of support for an unbeatable experience.
The Nectar Mattress by Nectar Sleep
The Nectar Sleep mattress starts off strong with a tencel cooling cover. This helps air circulate and wicks moisture, so you won’t feel sticky or sweaty. The quilted gel memory foam molds to your body for smooth comfort, and the adaptive hi-core layer provides bounce and rebound so you aren’t stuck once the foam starts to contour.
What’s more, the Nectar Sleep comes with the longest home trial available, 365 nights, a forever warranty, and works with all types of bed frames.
The Sapira Mattress by Leesa
We’ve featured a few coil-centric mattresses and a few memory foam mattresses in this article. This last one is a mashup of the 2. The Sapira mattress is a neat hybrid design meant to ensure comfort and support regardless of your sleep position or nighttime activity. It offers the kind of pressure relief you only get from memory foam along with the unparalleled support of a pocketed coil system. Its 5-layer construction is made up of a 1.5" cooling Avena foam top layer, which allows you to experience a cooler night’s sleep.
