7 Best Monkey Rockers & Sex Gliders [2022]: Rated And Reviewed

After testing different monkey rockers and sex gliders I can get my hands on, I’ve narrowed it down to 7 of the best so you can ride your way to pleasurable Os.

Rider-on-top is one of my go-to positions for many reasons. Being on top gives me the feeling of control, and I am in control – how deep I want it, how fast, which angles, what rhythms…

So while sex machines are great, I sometimes crave that more natural riding and thrusting sensation that I steer.

The answer? Monkey rockers!

Like the girl boss that I am, I scoured the internet and sex toy shops for the best monkey rockers I can find. Along the way, I’ve discovered which ones are the best in their class and which alternatives to use for different occasions.

What can I say? I like having my options! And where’s the fun in having numerous sex gliders that do the same thing?

Of course, these love gliders are not just for anyone with a vagina. You can use them on your rear too.

Okay, done with the babbling, and let’s get on with it. To start, here’s our top three:

SexualAlpha Top Pick

A monkey glider for you to ride and yeehaw your way to orgasm? The Cloud 9 F-Slider Pro aces the task. Powered by your own body movements, you will be in sync with this glider as it thrusts the dildo into you when you ride it. It gives you so much control – from the rhythm, depth, and speed to the choices of your dildo (use any dildo you love with its Vac-U-Lock and universal dildo adaptors).

Best Dildo Rocker Mount

If you’re looking for an alternative to a monkey rocker machine where you can mount your dildo and ride it away for pleasure, the Liberator Pulse is for you. It’s a rocker mount and sex pillow in one. With its curved base, it’s built for rocking in that delicious rider-on-top position. It also has pockets for your dildo and vibrator, so you get penetration PLUS vibration single-handedly.

Best Monkey Rocker Alternative

The Cowgirl Premium is a more premium choice in all aspects – its build, quality, price, features, and so on. But you’ll be getting your money’s worth with it. While it’s not a manually-operated sex machine, you will still be the one to straddle and ride it to your rhythm. It just has its powerful vibrations and textures to stimulate you as you go. Plus, awesome features like controlling the vibrations, rotations, and speeds through its wired remote or wirelessly through the app.

Top Monkey Rockers & Alternatives

SexualAlpha Top Pick

1. Cloud 9 F-Slider Pro

Price:
$$$
Weight capacity:
400 lbs.
Measurements:
22” L x 18” W x 22” H
Materials:
Waterproof vinyl cushion
  • Natural thrusting motions
  • No battery or electricity
  • Includes realistic dildo
  • With Vac-U-Lock and universal dildo adaptor
  • Depth adjustment control
  • An investment piece
  • Fucking machine that looks like a fucking machine

Rider-on-top is one of my favorite positions. When I’m alone, using dildos can’t replicate that riding-and-thrusting sensation.

But when I found Cloud 9 F-Slider Pro… you can bet it felt like I was literally on cloud 9.

Sex machines are great. But it could feel robotic, like being fucked by a robot. Which, technically, it is.

With F-Slider Pro, your movements power its thrusts. So you’re 100% in control of how fast or how deep the thrusts are. 

To use it, straddle the machine and sit on its padded thigh rests. Then, position the dildo and insert it into your vagina or anus. 

After you get into a comfortable position and angle, rock your hips back and forth. This rocking movement drives the dildo to move up and down, powering its thrusting motion. Because of this, being penetrated by this monkey rocker feels very natural. 

During my first ride (*nudge nudge*), moving my hips to the rocking motion took a little getting used to. But after finding my rhythm, the pleasure started really kicking in. Its ergonomically-shaped, easy-to-grip handle helped me balance and time my rocking right.

You can immediately use it out of the box (after putting together a few pieces here and there) as it comes with a dildo – a realistic, flesh-colored dong with an insertable length of 7 inches.

If you don’t fancy the included dildo, switch it with your favorite D-buddies in your collection. It has a Vac-U-Lock adaptor and a universal dildo adaptor, so you can use almost any dildo you like.

The F-Slider Pro has knobs you can adjust to control the thrusting depth. The middle setting, to me, felt the most enjoyable and comfortable. It’s deep enough for the dildo to penetrate me pleasurably but not too deep to feel like I’m getting stabbed. 

Living with a roommate? You don’t have to worry much about making a sound as it’s built to have a quiet mechanism. 

However, the F-Slider Pro needs some storage space. It’s a fucking machine that ACTUALLY looks like a fucking machine. 

You can keep it discreet under its black storage cover, which also helps avoid dust buildup. Still, its silhouette seems peculiar, so better stash it somewhere safe and clean when not in use.


Best Dildo Rocker Mount

2. Liberator Pulse

Price:
$
Weight capacity:
250 lbs.
Measurements:
20” L x 12” W x 13” H
Materials:
Microfiber
  • Removable, machine-washable cover
  • Two pockets for smaller vibrators, slit for dildo
  • Affordable
  • Built for rocking motion
  • Longer dildos and dildos with wider bases may not fit well

Have you ever enjoyed your suction cup dildos only to suffer from bruised knees and strained legs? Because, same.

Until I got my hands on the Liberator Pulse.

Why? Suction cup dildos don’t work on the bed, but Pulse does. Yay for comfort!

It’s not the sex-chair, monkey-rocker furniture like F-Slider Pro, but, boy, is this toy made for rocking. This mount with a curved base rocks you back and forth when you ride it.

The best part? It has two pockets for small vibrators and a small recess where you can insert your dildo.

PRO TIP: Use a dildo with a base (around 1.25” and 3” to fit perfectly) to prevent the toy from slipping when you ride it.

Both ends are shaped differently, so you can switch them depending on which sensation you prefer. On its shorter end, lean forward for fast, shallow thrusts. I like going deep at it

And it goes deeeeeeep. The sensations feel similar to bouncing up and down on a penis during cowgirl. But since I’m just rocking back-and-forth, it’s not as tiring. 

And, this rocket mount is great for couple play as well. 

You can use it with a partner as a positioning pad. Lay on top of it for enhanced rocking motions or flip it over to use it as support (great for doggy style!). 

Like many Liberator products, this toy mount is very easy to clean. The fabric cover is removable and machine-washable. Plus, it comes with a liner to protect the foam from squirts and spills – so feel free to get those juices flowing.

Best Monkey Rocker Alternative

3. The Cowgirl Premium

Price:
$$$
Weight capacity:
400 lbs.
Measurements:
16.7” L x 13.4” W x 10.9” H
Materials:
Vegan leather
  • Lots of smart features
  • Control via corded remote or wireless via mobile apps
  • Easy-to-clean vegan leather
  • Powerful vibrations
  • Gets LOUD
  • Expensive

The Cowgirl Premium is one of those premium sex toys with a reputation that precedes it. And what does it say? Lots of good and pleasurable things.

It is a saddle-shaped sex machine made of vegan leather. MEANING – it’s black, it’s sleek, and it’s very easy to clean.

Of course, the most important part: how good is it for riding? Let me tell you, verrrrry great.

Let’s talk about features because there are A LOT.

It comes with two silicone attachments both with a smooth end and with a ribbed, textured length. Depending on how intense you want to go, you can choose which side to rub against. One has a shorter bump, while the other has a longer curved shaft for insertion. 

It vibrates (up to 1200 rpm!!!), and it swivels (in 360-degrees!!!).

It has 6 vibrating patterns. I managed to get to 5, but I was already shuddering from the delicious intensity and couldn’t last very long. 

You can control the pattern, rotation, and vibration from its corded remote control, or you can control it wirelessly from its Android and iOS apps, so you can easily get going without stopping.

Beware because it gets loud – not me, the toy. (OK, I admit, me too.)

Being the priciest on this list, it’s a serious investment. But with all its features, it’s definitely in a league of its own and definitely worth every penny… as long as you don’t mind the noise, and you have the budget for it.


Best Value for Money

4. LoveBotz Bangin Bench

Price:
$$
Weight capacity:
400 lbs.
Measurements:
18” L x 19” W x 14.5” H
Materials:
Elastic straps, steel frame
  • Elastic straps support bouncing
  • Removable raiser bar for dildo
  • Use any dildo you want
  • No dildo included
  • Difficult to assemble alone

If you want a monkey rocker, but you’re looking for a more affordable alternative. 

The LoveBotz Bangin Bench is essentially a sex or queening stool. But, it works as a sex glider as well.

This stool has a red raiser bar when you use it as a sex glider. Here, you can attach your suction cup dildo. If you want to use other dildo types, it also provides a strap-on harness.

By lifting your weight, the elastic straps do most of the work in bouncing. So you can focus on the pleasure instead of supporting your weight or balancing.

If you remove the raiser bar, you can replace it with your partner beneath you, like the queen (or king) that you are. Yup, you see where this is going. It’s great for your domination fantasies.

Assembling it is more difficult than similar stools that have latching systems. This one uses screws. But with an extra pair of hands, piecing it together can be sweat-free.

But because of that, I wouldn’t want to dismantle it again for storage. Instead, I use it as a luggage rack (after wiping it, of course!) for guests. Quite a versatile tool, isn’t it?


Best Manual Machine

5. The LoveArc

Price:
$$
Weight capacity:
Not specified
Measurements:
37” L x 7.5” H
Materials:
Aluminum
  • Portable and lightweight
  • Versatile for different positions
  • Silent
  • Might be difficult for shorter users

When I first saw The LoveArc, I thought it looked like some gym equipment. And maybe I wasn’t so far off because of all the sweaty, orgasm-induced full-body workout I did with it. That should count, right?

Made of 100% aluminum, you can bet it’s sturdy yet lightweight. It only weighs 3 kg.

To start, it’s built for suction cup toys like dildos, male sleeves, plugs, and more. Stick your suction cup toy on any part of the beam, and then… do your thing!

You can lean it on the floor, on the wall, on the chair, on the bed… basically anywhere. This means you can explore a wide array of positions with it as well – both for solo and partnered play.

Something to note is that its beam is quite long. So if you’re on the shorter side, you might find it hard to reach the handlebar for support when you’re exploring the right angle for you on its farther end.

Of course, you have many options to do with this toy, so you don’t have to stick with one position if it’s uncomfortable.


Best Straddling Alternative

6. Liberator Wing

Price:
$
Weight capacity:
300 lbs
Measurements:
24” L x 15” W x 9” H
Materials:
Velvish fabric
  • Support for up-and-down thrusting
  • Two holes for toys
  • Comfortable elongated design
  • Height might be too low for some

Want a mount you can ride comfortably in bed? Check out the Liberator Wing.

Like Pulse, it’s a cushioned mount that holds your toys as you straddle them. Wing doesn’t do as much “rocking” as Pulse, but its rounded-edge design gives just enough rocking movement but with more stability.

As a result, it’s more ideal for rear and deep penetration (dildo and male partner). 

For the Wing’s shape, going with a softer dildo feels good so that you can move around with it. If it’s too firm, it might feel uncomfortable. You can insert the dildo into the Wing at 5 ½-inch deep. 

Since it has a longer yet thinner length, inserting a long vibrator will resonate and rumble throughout the entire cushion. When you’re riding it, you will feel the trembles on your thighs and clit. 

If you’re tall, you’d have to go really low to grind your clit. But if you have shorter legs, this would be just the right height for you. 

Wing shines when used as a position enhancer with a partner. It provides the right amount of leverage for deeper angles.


Budget-Friendly Alternative

7. Liberator BonBon

Price:
$
Weight capacity:
300 lbs.
Measurements:
15” L x 8.5” W x 12” H
Materials:
Microsuede or Velvish fabric
  • Great for grinding
  • Sturdy flat base
  • Affordable
  • Small and compact
  • Only one hole for your toy
  • Height might be too high for some

Finally, if you’re looking for an affordable makeshift monkey rocker, you may go for Liberator BonBon.

It’s a toy mount with an arch-shaped top and a flat base. Meaning, it’s VERY stable. At the same time, it also means it won’t do the rocking for you. You’d have to ride and thrust on this toy mount on your own.

That said, BonBon’s height gives you enough leverage if you’re into grinding. However, it might be an uncomfortable height for you if you’re shorter, considering it holds the dildo erect.

Something to note for your dildo, the depth you can insert on the BonBon is 3 inches. So make sure your dildo is just the right height for this mount.

Like Pulse and Wing, you can use it as a pillow with your partner. Since it’s designed for straddling, you can maximize exploring different variations of this position with your partner. 

It’s also petite and compact, so it’s easy to store away.


Sex Glider Buying Guide: Your Shopping Checklist

Here’s a quick sex glider buying guide for you:

Toy Compatibility

If you have a sex toy collection (or if you’re planning to build one), plan out if your toys are compatible with the sex glider. These pieces of furniture don’t come cheap, so you’d want to maximize it as much as possible by ensuring it works with your favorite toys.

For one, check if it supports universal adaptors, Vac-U-Lock adaptors, and harnesses. Also, research the dildo sizes and lengths it can accommodate.


Comfort

What’s great about gliders is that they’re also built for comfort – which should be a priority.

For monkey gliders, having cushioned thigh rests helps riding the machine comfortably. It should also not be too high or too low where you’ll have to balance or support most of your weight.


Storage

A monkey rocker can look like an actual sex machine. So if you don’t want to give your conservative ‘rents a heart attack, you’d have to consider the size so you can store them properly.

Meanwhile, others look more discreet, so they may pass off as a regular piece of furniture or an odd pillow. So – consider if it’s discreet and how much real estate you can afford for its storage.


Materials

As you will be riding this furniture, stability and sturdiness are important. Materials can also determine how much weight capacity it can take. (Is it just for one person, or can you and your partner ride it safely together?)

Of course, it also dictates how easy to clean and maintain it will be. Can you just wipe when it gets spilled on? Can you remove the cover and wash it? Is it moisture-resistant? 


Budget

Good monkey rockers have premium build, materials, and quality. Hence, they come at a heftier price tag. Of course, the most expensive glider isn’t necessarily the best for you. Know what you’re looking for, do some research, and spend that stimulus check. 


FAQs

How To Use A Monkey Rocker?

Here are three simple steps:

  1. Lube up.
  2. Straddle the monkey rocker.
  3. Ride the D.

Take your time to explore which sensations, positions, and angles work best for you. Like many things, practice makes perfect. 

Here are some additional tips:

Use it alone or with a partner. Monkey rockers make penetrative sex feel natural and hands-free. Yet, it doesn’t mean you should ONLY use it on your own. Invite your partner to join in the fun. Sex gliders are great for simulating a threesome.

Lube, lube, and lube. Okay, we’re talking about two types of lubes here. One, lube up your dildo – whether you’re using it vaginally or anally. Avoiding friction always makes penetration feel better. Two, lube up your machine (if necessary). Regularly lubricating your mechanical monkey rocker will ensure all joints work smoothly and prevent squeaking!

Switch up your dildos. Variety is the spice of life. If your sex glider allows, switch up your dildos. You might be surprised to know that your not-so-favorite dildo works really great with your love glider. Try and try until you reach the big O.


Can I Make My Own Monkey Rocker?

Yes, you can!

Monkey rockers are expensive. They range from a hundred dollars to more than a thousand dollars. So it makes sense why some would prefer to build their own instead. 

However, DIY-ing a monkey rocker is not a beginner project. You’d need to commit time and money for it. And you also need to have the skills, tools, and materials to build one. 

Some converted their furniture like a gliding ottoman into their very own love glider. Others built it from scratch using plans and templates found online.

Conclusion

There you have it!

Monkey rockers are great additions to your sex furniture repertoire. They’re fun, and they bring something new to the table. So go ahead and spend your stimulus check for some good ridin’ and rockin’ like a real equestrian.
