The Best Bed Frames for Sex

Last Updated May 19, 2022

Nothing ruins the mood quite like a squeaky bed frame, and for couples looking to take advantage of personal time, trying to keep a loud bedframe quiet can really put a dampener on things. Whether you’re looking to get some privacy from your next-door neighbours, your roommates or are hoping to avoid giving your kids another “we’re just playing Twister” excuse, choosing the right bedframe can help you reduce unnecessary noise so you can focus on the task at hand.

While almost everyone has had some experience with a squeaky bed frame, whether from personal experience or from an inconsiderate neighbour, for sexually active couples, your bed should be a pleasure palace – if you will – and not a warzone of squeaks and creaks.

You probably think a squeak-free bed frame doesn’t even exist – and while you can never be 100% certain a bed frame won’t make some kind of noise under the weight of two rambunctious adults, there are bed frames that are certainly better than others when it comes to sex.

Choosing the Right Bedframe for You


There are a few key things to keep in mind when investing in a bed frame that will enhance your bedroom activities. Firstly, you should consider what materials the bed is made from. While we all associate metal bedframes with unwanted noise, a poorly constructed wooden frame can be even worse, as those telltale creaks and groans can give away more than you feel like sharing with your neighbours or housemates. A well-made metal bed frame can be just as reliable as a padded bed frame, so long as it is properly constructed, and the ability to tighten screws and oil joints gives a metal bed frame a leg up over some wooden bed frames.


The next thing to keep in mind is the state of the headboard. While some couples don’t feel like a headboard is that important to their overall enjoyment of their bed, a headboard can offer added leverage for certain activities and can give your bedroom an overall put-together appearance. Another thing to keep in mind is that any headboard can cause noise if placed too close to the wall, so be sure to give your headboard a bit of breathing room between it and the wall. A padded headboard can give you additional comfort, and the bonus of innate soundproofing, making it ideal for the sexually active couple. Whatever your consideration, be sure that the headboard is securely attached to your bed to prevent added creaks and bumps during personal time.
