Waterbeds

Are they still a thing

Not in your country, Boris.

God they were awful

by Anonymousreply 206/04/2021

Yeah, they were awful, especially when they sprung a leak as mine did quite a few times.

I had one growing up (teenage years) that just sat on the floor (no frame, etc) because the bladders were fairly cheap and my parents had one as well. We didn't really have money for furniture at the time.

As an adult, i had one for several years. It was different than a regular water bed - it was king sized with 2 bladders and a "mattress pad" went over the whole thing (looked like a real mattress for all intents and purposes). Also, there was a temperature control attached so you could adjust the heat/coolness to preference/season. I can't recall why I finally got rid of it, but probably had it for at least 5 years.

Up until about 3 years ago I had a California King Size waterbed. I loved it particularly with cold northeast winters. Now if you have cats either don't allow them in the room or on the waterbed. I learned that lesson. Alas gave it up. And it was a full motion bed. Great for fucking.

Kirby Baker had one in his office in Harper Valley. Talk of waterbeds and this was the first thing that came to mind.....

What about adjustable beds? I'm thinking of getting one. Any recommendations?

by Anonymousreply 706/04/2021

My friend had one circa 2002/3.

We finished up having an orgy at his place whilst he was out of town. 5 of us were on it and it was very robust.

Horrible

by Anonymousreply 906/04/2021

I dated a guy with a "waveless" water bed. It was ugly as hell, but I used to sleep incredibly deeply in that bed. It was kind of fun the way it sloshed around when we were doing it on the waterbed.

I have a friend who has one and she swears by it.

I was thinking about this after watch the new Conjuring movie!

Someone in my extended family had one in the 80s - can’t remember who - and when we’d visit I would run into their bedroom just to lay on it. Then I’d get motion sickness. Lol

i had one in the 80's. It was a queen size and took up so much space. It had a mirrored bookcase headboard and drawers under the base. I always rolled into the space between the mattress and the frame.

BTW if you still want a waterbed I think you can get frames, matresses, liners and other things on Amazon.

I knew someone who had a waterbed...and then he died.

I thought the 70s versions were awful for sex, because you couldn’t get any leverage.

The flotation beds that came along later, which I think is what R4 is describing, were great for sleeping. They didn’t require the heaters from what I remember and were adjustable for firmness.. We had one during the 90s, but when it sprung a leak, that was the end of that.

Air is where it's at today, baby!

by Anonymousreply 17Last Tuesday at 3:13 PM

Air beds suck and they inevitably leak air to the point of complete deflation.

This is bringing flashbacks of how the guy I lost my virginity to had a water bed!

Curiously, I don’t remember if I liked it or not. (The bed)
