Little Deeper Cushion Review

It is my firm belief that everyone should give sexual support cushions a try at some point.  They can take a lot of unnecessary strain off of your joints, making sex more comfortable.  Personally, I've found that support cushions also allow our love making sessions to last longer.  I've made no secret about how much I love my Liberator Wedge and Ramp, but when I saw the Little Deeper Cushion with it's dips and contours, I was intrigued.

Note: I received the Little Deeper Cushion free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

A little bit about it: The Little Deeper is a sort of jack-of-all-trades of support cushions.  Not only is it a sex positioner, but can also be used as a yoga tool and a body support pillow when you are just lounging.  It does a little bit of everything and does each one fairly well.

Unlike the typical pyramid/wedge shapes of other support cushions, the Little Deeper is contoured to support the body while remaining firm but comfortable.  The cushion itself is made of polyurethane foam with a polyester cover.  The cover can be removed and hand washed.

What I loved: I want to say right out that the thing I loved most about the Little Deeper is that it is not Liberator.  It's not trying to be Liberator.  It's not copying Liberator.  It is it's own product and that is refreshing.  I'm tired of seeing cheaper products that try and fail to copy Liberator designs.  Seeing that the Little Deeper Cushion is not trying to copy anyone or anything (although you could make the argument that they are trying to improve old designs) is just gravy.

The Little Deeper is a pretty decent sex positioner.  It's not uncomfortably hard, nor is it so soft that you sink in.  It's about the same firmness as the Liberator Wedge and Ramp.  It's the same height but longer than the Wedge, but not as long and shorter in height than the Ramp.  It's a nice in-between size.

I need to say, flat out, that my favorite use for the Little Deeper has nothing to do with sex.  It has to do with meditation.  I suffer from a lot of anxiety and tension issues and sitting for meditation for a few minutes helps me a ton.  However, I find if I sit on the floor to meditate with my back straight, it hurts.  A lot.  It feels like someone is sticking shivs of ice into my spine.  I have not yet been able to figure out what I'm doing wrong.  I tried sitting in a half lotus position on the Little Deeper and was perfectly comfortable.  No pain in my spine at all.  However, it was hard to meditate because I was distracted by just how comfortable I was!

What I didn't: The only thing I really didn't like about the Little Deeper is the cover.  The material feels wrong to my fingers.  It reminds me of cheap Christmas stockings or a holiday dress from the '80s.  There is just something about the material that feels off.  Even Husband, when he first touched it, made a face and declared that he didn't like the way it feels.  I much prefer the cover of Liberator products.

Final Thought: Oh, boy.  Tough call here.  I'm going to have to say I still like my Liberator better, but only slightly.  The Liberator Wedge and Ramp fit our anatomy just a little bit better.  And that's the problem with position cushions in general, isn't it?  Not every cushion will fit every body.

Most of the time I don't like a product or choose to not use it any further I can point to a specific design flaw as the reason. This time, I can't do that.  There isn't anything wrong with the Little Deeper Cushion.  It just isn't quite right for us.  The Little Deeper is very similar in size to the Liberator Wedge but we actually use our Liberator Ramp more often.  We need something longer and higher.  The Little Deeper is just not quite the right size for us.

That being said, I would heartily recommend this cushion if you are in one of three groups of people: those that find wedges too small and ramps too big, those that need contoured cushions for proper support, and those that can't meditate without pain!

Want your own?  You can get them through the Little Deeper website!
