Sex involves fluids. There’s just no way around it — no matter who you are, what your sexual orientation is or what type of sex you prefer — liquids of all kinds tend to be part of the equation. Whether it’s bodily fluids like sweat, tears (of joy) or ejaculate or externally introduced fluids like massage oils or personal lubricants, they make sex fun, and they can also leave behind wet spots and stains. No one wants to try to fall asleep with wet sheets underneath them or have to wash their sheets after every sexual encounter (even though you probably should regardless). Guys, this is for you — no man, woman or person will want to have sex on a bed covered in disconcerting stains. Take care of your partners and yourselves by keeping the environment clean.
Sure, you could throw a blanket down over your sheets, but what if that blanket has been outside? Or is difficult to wash? Or is the nice cashmere one your mom bought you for Christmas, and you feel weird having sex on it? We get it, that’s why you need a dedicated blanket for sex. You need a sex blanket. Whether you’re spending some alone time with the best male sex toys or getting down with a partner, this unique bedroom accessory is an essential.
Sex blankets are an emerging product category that we fully support because there’s nothing sexier than practical hygiene. Sex blankets are designed for sexual activity, as they’re typically easier to wash than your standard cozy throw blanket. Sometimes they even have a water-resistant side that makes them better for fluid and a softer side, so you’re not just having sex on a tarp, even if that would be conducive to an easy clean-up. If you’re intrigued by this idea and want to invest in a blanket sex companion of your own, SPY gathered a few of the best options available. Here are the best sex blankets of the year.
What To Consider Before Buying a Sex Blanket
There are a few things to remember when buying a sex blanket. They make an excellent addition to your bed and sexual routine if you get the right one.
- How Big is Your Bed? If you’re looking for full coverage of your entire sleeping and sex surface, figure out what size your bed is first. Some waterproof blankets come in all standard bed sizes, so if you want a waterproof surface to roll around on, one of those would be a great choice.
- Do You Need Something Waterproof?: This question gets a little personal, but it’s a good thing to remember. If your sex tends to be very fluid-involved, you will want something waterproof. If not, and you just want something cozy to lay down and set the mood — you can go for a blanket made of softer material.
- Are You Allergic to Any Fabrics?: This is a crucial one, as you will become intimate with this blanket quickly. Many of the blankets in our round-up are made of standard fabric like nylon, fleece, etc. — so if you’ve got any allergies to those, choose an alternative.
1. Callarome Waterproof Blanket
Everybody wants one of these high-end sex blankets by Liberator, but if you’re starting with a small budget, you can check out this full-sized imitation blanket by Callorame. This one features reinforced stitching around the edges and a soft microfleece texture that’s smooth on bare skin so you can enjoy those moisture-wicking properties comfortably. Based on reviews, this throw appears to absorb large amounts of liquid, while food and other substances can easily be wiped off.
2. Liberator Fascinator Throw Blanket
Liberator is a popular sex furniture company, and they’ve made a blanket specifically designed for sex, which is why it nearly tops the list. It’s a plush throw blanket lined to soak up liquids and fluids. It has a silky and satin side and a microfiber side, so you can pick whether you want sleek or cozy vibes. It has an inner moisture barrier so fluids won’t seep through to your mattress, and it’s discreet, so it won’t stick out on your current bed or in hotel rooms.
3. PupProtector Waterproof Dog Blanket
In SPY’s How to Build a Sex Room interview with Melanie Rose, we learned from the pros that stimulating the senses is key when it comes to intimate time, and her top pick is a luscious faux fur blanket. While sensory stimulation can certainly be done with floggers and more intense forms of play, this blanket is an approachable and easy way to infuse a little luxury into your playtime. Most importantly, this protective plush throw is waterproof, so get as frisky as you want with spills and don’t worry about stains.
4. Liberator Black Label Escape Wet
BEST INSTANT SEX ROOM
Even if you can’t afford the best sex furniture and don’t have the space to build a sex room in your home, placing this on your floor or carpet can help you explore a variety of positions, creating an instant adult playground from the comfort of your home. The Black Escape Wet is a liquid-proof sex pad, providing a more substantial surface that’s easy to wipe down after your slip n’ slide fantasies have been fulfilled. The cover is machine washable and takes up less room than a blanket in your washing machine.
5. The Layer Waterproof Blanket
BEST CIRCULAR PICK
Like the best sex blankets on the market, The Layer is popular because it can hold more than four cups of liquid. But unlike those other blankets, this one is circular and completely noiseless. That makes it ideal for people with limited storage space or who don’t need coverage on their entire bed or floor. Along with being machine washable, The Layer is also portable enough for your to pack up in luggage without taking up too much room. It’s also black, making a sleek addition to sexy time while hiding stains.
6. Softan Waterproof 100% Leak Proof Blanket
This sex blanket offers plenty of coverage and is soft as can be. If you want super comprehensive coverage against sex stains, this fully reversible blanket with leak-proof protection is a great choice. It’s a completely leak-proof blanket that hasn’t just used a spray-on solution or nylon backing for liquid protection — instead, the brand utilizes a moisture barrier fused between two soft fleece layers. It’s reversible and comes with three different color options; it’s also waterproof on both sides. This generous size is big enough to cover a queen bed and a king bed, but less will be hanging off the sides.
7. Throws of Passion Waterproof Blanket
This waterproof blanket from Throws of Passion is 100% waterproof and leakproof and consists of a noiseless waterproof barrier nestled between two layers of fleece. It’s comfortable and hygienic, as it’ll keep liquids off your mattress without sounding like or feeling like a standard waterproof barrier. It’s fully reversible and waterproof on both sides, and it’s stain-resistant and machine-washable, so you’ve got plenty of cleaning options. You can also safely put it in the dryer, so it stays soft and comfortable after cleaning.
8. Liberator Liquid Velvet Sheet & Pillow Covers
Alright, now that you’ve hopefully got a blanket picked out, it’s time to choose a set of sheets and pillow covers to go with it. These are from the Liberator, the company that makes the Runner Up blanket above, and they’re as elegant as they are useful. The sex comes with a fitted sheet and pillow covers, all made with a 100% polyester liquid-velvet. The fabric is safe to use with water and silicone-based lubricants and massage lotions. The pillowcases have concealed zippers for comfort, and the set is available for queen and king-size beds.
9. Venus Matters Universe Mat
The circular Universe Venus mat is as stylish as it gets in terms of finding sex blankets that double as bedroom decor. You can proudly keep this soft mat out with its dreamy, abstract pattern. The waterproofing middle layer is made of cooling organic cotton terry and bamboo, which makes it more breathable during sweaty activities. This microfiber blanket is backed with champagne velvet, and according to customers, the texture is incredibly soft on naked skin.
10. Splash Waterproof Squirt Blanket
The impressive and cozy Splash Blanket can hold up to a liter of liquid and is generously sized. It’s also reversible and available in different colors, but some sizes tend to sell out quickly. Quiet and soft to the touch, these blankets were invented by a squirter to solve the problem of mood-killing cleanups post-coitus. Protect your car seats, mattress or couch with one of these waterproof sex blankets that will give you peace of mind and let you fully relax during intimacy without fear of messing up your belongings.
11. Playdrop Waterproof Sex Mat
MOST UNIQUE SHAPE
Shaped like a teardrop, this is one of the best waterproof sex blankets for those who don’t want a round or square shape. It protects a decent portion of furniture without taking up as much space as a full blanket. But despite its portable, travel-friendly size, it can hold up to six cups or a liter of liquid, making it perfect for period sex and all kinds of kinks. Ideal for those who don’t like the feeling of vinyl or latex, this breathable triple-layer design is cozy on bare skin and can be washed with your towels on a regular cycle.
12. Bondatrix Fluid Proof Bed Sheet
BEST FOR WAX PLAY
Even the best sex blankets can be tricky to clean up when it comes to wax play. A luxurious and inviting alternative to cheap and uncomfortable surfaces for wax play and other messy, sexy activities, this UK-made bed protector is available in all sizes, from double to king-sized. Slipping over your bed with elastic straps, this synthetic leather piece is also machine-washable.
13. DeutscheLeather Waterproof Fitted BDSM Play Sheet
BEST FOR BDSM PLAY
Perfect for BDSM play, this set has a leather look and is described as smooth, cool to the touch and stretchy. Made from coated nylon vinyl, it’s even stretchy enough to fit your own bedsheet underneath. With its seam-free design, elegant look and superb craftsmanship, this is the one accessory that your kinky play is missing, whether you’re new to kink or an experienced player. One reviewer suggests playing with coconut oil in these sheets, which sounds divine.
14. Passion Lubes Nuru Inflatable Vinyl Massage Sheet
BEST FOR SPLOSHING
WAM, or wet and messy play is a popular kink. Within WAM is sploshing, aka food play. What is sploshing? Whether you’re swimming in whipped cream or rubbing spaghetti and sauce all over your body, this inflatable vinyl massage sheet was basically made for it. It provides the perfect surface for all your slippery activities and even has bolsters to contain the mess. This playsheet isn’t technically a sex blanket but it is great for sploshing, golden showers, squirting and more.
15. Bed Guardian 3M Scotchgard Comforter Protector
BEST DUVET COVER
If you want to keep your duvet on the bed without ruining it, check out this comforter protector from Sleep Guardian, which is one of the best sex blanket covers for keeping your existing bedding clean and stain-free. Sold in full/queen and king sizes, this super affordable protector sleeve has a waterproof barrier that protects against liquids, turning your at-home duvet into a DIY sex blanket without spending a ton of cash.
16. Silly Legacy Thin Reversible Waterproof Blanket
THINNEST REVERSIBLE PICK
Large enough to cover your entire bed, this reversible waterproof blanket has a different color on each side. Made from a lightweight blanket can be used on any furniture or the floor. Ideal for those who often overheat during those sweaty bedroom activities, this thin covering is just thin enough. It has a slightly slick material that may slide around on the bed but is sumptuous during intimate time.
17. Doc Johnson Kink Play Sheet Waterproof Fitted Sheet
BEST KING SIZED SHEETS
If you’re looking to splurge for something a little higher quality than a plasticky playsheet on Amazon, check out this Doc Johnson waterproof kink sheet which rivals the best sex blankets on the market. This one is sold in a king size and has deep, 13-inch pockets that keep it secured even over extra-thick mattresses. Meanwhile, heat-sealed seams work to provide full waterproofing for all your wet and wild activities.
18. Fluid-Proof Pillowcase by Sheets of San Francisco
BEST FOR PILLOWS
If you’re into grinding or incorporating pillows into your sex play, this is a must. Swap our your regular pillowcases for these fluid-proof ones by Sheets of San Francisco. A fantastic alternative Wet Works Waterproof case by Doc Johnson which is currently sold out online, this machine washable, liquid-resistant pillow case has a sensual rubber feel. Great for those who often use pillows to aid in positions, or those engaging in wet and messy play.
19. Inspire Waterproof Mattress Pad
BEST UNDER $20
Although it’s not technically a blanket for sex, this is a budget-friendly version of Liberator’s sex pad. If you don’t want the bunching or the warmth, consider this waterproof mattress pad, which is a dark color to help hide stains and has a soft, quilted surface. It can be used as an underpad to protect the mattress, or you can lay it on top of your sheets. Sure, it might not be as luxurious as some other options, but for under $20, it’ll get the job done!
20. Liberator Escape Mat
BEST FOR SOFT BEDS
Whether you’re getting freaky on the floor or your bed, this can be paired with any surface you like. It makes a great hack to stop sinking on memory foam mattresses or a too-soft bed, but this pad can also make for some fantastic playtime on the floor, adding high-density cushioning where knees and backs need it most. Although it’s not explicitly described as waterproof like their Black Label mat, the poly/nylon liner does resist moisture, and the cover is machine washable.
21. No More Wet Spot Mini 30″ X 36″ Two Pack, Waterproof Fleece Blankets
This waterproof mini sex blanket comes with multiple blankets per pack, so if you use one and need a spare, No More Wet Spot has your back. The fleece blanket has a different seductive color on each side, and while it’s not large enough to use as a blanket to sleep with, it’s a much better alternative to a towel. These play blankets are luxuriously soft and perfect for male and female ejaculation.
22. Catalonia Waterproof Blanket
While the blankets advertised specifically for sexy time can sometimes cost a pretty penny, this waterproof blanket for sex by Catalonia is just as quality, with multiple sizes available so that you can use it as a blanket on your bed. One side is soft and thick fleece, while the other is sherpa, so you and your partner can snuggle up with it when you’re not getting down and dirty. It’s machine washable and hassle-free.
23. Fascinator Throw – King Size
If you’ve got a king-sized bed, some of these blankets look measly on it, proportion-wise. If you have a female squirter or are into golden showers, this is also a great way to experiment with those kinks without the dreaded post-coital cleanup. This giant, soft-as-can-be sex blanket by Liberator is an XL version of their popular Fascinator blanket and features a reinforced seam design for added durability. The colors are low-key enough that if guests see them on your bed, they’d never know the secret function.
24. PassionMate Waterproof Sex Blanket Bed Pad
BEST BED COVER
Passionmate’s waterproof mattress protector in burgundy can fit up to a queen-size bed and is soft and noiseless. Some waterproof sheets, especially ones made from vinyl or plastic, have an annoying rustling sound when you’re moving around, which, let’s be frank, you’re doing a lot of during sex. It’s more of a bed cover than a usable blanket during non-sexy time, with one user aptly calling it a more comfortable version of a “sex tarp.” Since it’s available in dark colors, this polyester cover is ideal for period sex as well.
