    Hi all, my OH and I recently got a new bed and, while good, the matress is a bit bigger than our old one. This is a problem, as one of my OH's favourite positions is doggy, her on the bed, me standing next to it. We both find it a bit uncomfy being on the bed together, so this was ideal.

    However, it it now uncomfortable to do it that way, because of the height increase. I have to stand on my tiptoes to get even slightly comfy (for reference I'm about 6' 1"), which ends up limiting what we can do.

    I've been looking for a small stool/step to remedy this, but I've not had much luck. Most things I've seen are either too high, not sturdy looking or metal. Has anyone seen/got something like this that could tell me where they got it or, if I have to resort to making my own, any advice for that?

    Thanks all!

    I am so sorry all i can think now is suggesting the yellow pages. I have a really childish giggle going on now.

    I think any sort of stool would present a slight problem as its a lot of movement so you would have to make it a sturdy one. By the way welcome to the forums

    Hi there, how about an ottoman that you can kneel on. If you type ottoman in google lots of options will come up :)

    How about one of those fitness step up things. Can't be too expensive and probably reasonably sturdy too.
    Without looking I'd hazard a guess Argos would sell something like that.

    It would be easy to make something.

    2 pieces of 16mm thick MDF of what ever dimentions you think would be best. I would say 600mm x 600mm, to make it so it does not feel like you are going to step off it during use ( That could be uncomfortable) Then use the 2 pieces to sandwich some soft wood battons of the correct size to make up the height maybe 3 by 2 would do it.

    Easy to do, easy to get the materials, not joints to make, just a few screws, no pun intended.

    I think this is a good idea!

    I have an aerobic step-up step for doggy and find it brilliant. It's sturdy and doesn't slide around. Bought originally to make getting in and out of the bath easier.

    I got mine for a tenner in Tesco a few years ago and it has the added bonus of having little adjuster blocks to adjust the height.

    And now I can’t get the vision out of my head of performing doggy and step aerobics at the same time.

    Thanks all, going to have a look into those aerobic steps. Failing that, it's off to B&Q!

    Well my solution is simple, buy yourself a pair of high heels, if you really need the hight get platforms. And you will be secretly turned on wearing them
