The question is how many combinations of discretion and bouncy were tried on each mattress to get those ratings. For some people, quality bounce at discreet levels matters more than uninhibited, potential bounce.

I would like to see a similar comparison of dining room tables.

also that chart made me REALLY want a latex mattress when we were shopping for them, it's too bad they're so expensive.

I'd like to see one of those comparisons for bed frames actually. the one i got was mad cheap but makes the occasional horrifying noise if you're in the wrong place at the wrong time.

haha, ghostbikes, I just had the same experience. We ordered a new memory foam mattress last week - I was assured the newer models don't sleep all that hot, but I'll know for sure soon.

Also kitchen counters, carpets, couches, stairs, bathtubs, washing machines, uhhh, roof tiles...

from Don't Point That Thing At Me, by Kyril Bonfiglioli:
Bed is the only place for protracted telephoning. It is also excellently suited to reading, sleeping and listening to canaries. It is not at all a good place for sex: sex should take place in armchairs, or in bathrooms, or on lawns which have been brushed but not too recently mown, or on sandy beaches if you happen to have been circumcised. If you are too tired to have intercourse except in bed you are probably too tired anyway and should be husbanding your strength.

Please do not use the armchairs, unless you first put a cover of some kind on them, for god's sake your guests have to sit there.

Those of you who like knitting, maybe you can make a sort of sex-antimacassar for this purpose.

Due to my retro lube preferences, this is actually just an antimacassar in my case.

I've been in more than a few houses with plastic-covered furniture in the living room, which always crinkles unpleasantly when you sit on it.

Can someone explain this "sleeping hot" property mentioned above? Not a concept I'm familiar with, and I just moved to a new apartment which came with a memory foam mattress. I agree that it feels like quicksand; I get around by swimming through the memories.

i just very recently bought a mattress

So did I. I found this chart afterwards though.

When I was 13, my dad bought me a new bed. He got the mattress directly from a friend of his, who runs the area's largest Bedding supplier. This is the same guy who chatted with a Gambino at the local Outback Steakhouse.

Anyway, ol' Bob had his guys deliver the mattress directly to the house. I was home after school with my neighbor, known then as Frog, when the truck backed up. I opened the garage, let them carry it in. Frog was looking over the mattress as I was thanking them and closing the door.

"Cool," I said. "New bed, yay. Wanna help me put it together?"

"Matt," said Frog. "MATT"

"What?"

"LOOK AT YOUR FUCKKEN MATTRESS MAN" says Frog.

And there at the foot of the mattress, what I had thought to be a Restonic mattress label, was in fact a custom tag that read:

MIDNIGHT EXPRESS
FAST FEEDER MODEL
TWO UPS FOR EVERY DOWN
THE BEST FUCKING MATTRESS IN THE WORLD


I treasured that bed my entire adolescence, I can tell you.

Mods: is there something you can do to erase this FPP from all of existence and memory?

Air mattresses are not in the Pareto-optimal set as they are dominated by innerspring. Likewise, waterbeds are dominated by latex beds.

As the owner of a Tempurpedic I'm interested in these wonderful new positions that the article claims. Because otherwise the mattress pretty much sucks for the hanky panky.
posted by Runes at 5:12 AM on September 10, 2014


Everyone has told me that Tempurpedics are awful for the love-times, but we have one and I haven't found it to be any more (or less) difficult than on a normal bed.

we went memory foam and it's been quite nice, I find it sleeps a little hot tho.

We got a cooling mattress pad and it really works.

I loved my memory foam mattress until I found a girl I loved more. We are happy owners of a latex mattress now.

Sleeps hot = becomes or feels hot when you sleep on it, I believe..
