How to buy a mattress… September 8, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — englandia @ 4:10 am

Mattress buying is happening in the Head Possum household.

I am taking the leap and making the investment, since my current mattress is in not so great shape anymore.

My heart has been set on a memory foam mattress for a year or so. I mean, I was all “no if’s, when’s or but’s.”

I went to the Jordan Furniture Sleep Lab this weekend and discovered the unthinkable.

I was test snuggling and narrowed it down to two mattresses.

As I was sitting on the memory foam, I thought to myself “Wait a second. You just SINK. There is no bounce. HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO HAVE GOOD ORGASMS IF THERE IS NO BOUNCE IN MY MATTRESS.”

I went to option 2, which is a bit more expensive, but a mix of memory foam top and normal mattress underneath and gave it a good bounce test.

Then I walked into the furniture section and dragged my friend out, who happens to own a really expensive memory foam mattress and who has always told me she loved it.

“Darling, how about the sex?”

“Oh,” she answered. “You know you came to the right person. I would NEVER buy a memory foam mattress again. Great traction, no bounce.”

And there you have it, possums. That’s how you buy a mattress.

Determine the following:

A: What do you need for a good orgasm? Bounce or no bounce?

Buy accordingly. VOILA. :)

    I cannot thank you enough for this timely post. We need a new mattress and my husband has been set on getting a memory foam monstrosity. I believe your post will win my argument against it hand’s down :o)

    As an FYI…waterbeds = too much bouncing.
