    It’s a big pain-in-the-butt to properly maintain one.

    I had one of those which had several chambers so that if your bed wasn’t near the sink or tub, you could fill these portable chambers in the bathroom and bring them back to the bed area. I had a full-size bed then so there must have been like 5 or 6 refillable, elongated chambers. (This was in the mid’80s when I had one.)

    The point is, you had to have the water’s pH factor in mind so that algae didn’t grow there for long, etc., so (unless you have a houseboy or alila to do these things) you have to change the water frequently etc., etc. Just a pain. And the sensation must’ve been what it was like to have been in the womb if one’s consciousness can recall that.

    Sex was OK. Gave it a little extra dimension, but, you always had to remember that you could not use any ‘imperdibles” (or sharp objects) of any kind on the bed. If your bedroom was on an upper floor, you had to make sure the floor was structurally sound to carry all that extra weight And then if you lived in the colder climes, it would get cold; you had to buy a heater, etc., etc., Just a pain…

    No wonder it went out of fashion.

    When we were kids, one of the high points visiting my grandparents’ home was going to the basement “lair” of my youngest uncle who, at the time, was a young man who had just entered college.

    His room had wallpaper with a reflectorized psychedelic pattern and a king-sized water bed. He had a huge mama-san chair in front of his Sony TV. His dresser was well-stocked with “Eau Sauvage” and he always had the latest editions of “Playboy” and “Penthouse.”

    Of course, those were the early to mid-70s.
