This is my 4th mat from Venus Matters (yes I'm obsessed). They all work amazing, but this one is by far the most beautiful and versatile. If you're like me, you need a mat like this virtually every time you make love, and what I love about this mat is that it's so gorgeous and looks like a blanket, so it's easy to just lay down on top of my bed almost like a comforter.
It also looks and feels like a weighted blanket, which I love. I also used this as a groundcover when I was having a lakeside picnic and it was great because the ground was a bit cold/damp but I didn't feel it through the thickness of this mat.
Also, of course, this mat holds an amazing quantity of fluids, and what's great it that it actually absorbs the fluids instead of repelling it like some of the competitors mats. That is key when looking for an absorbent mat.
I ordered a queen but wish I had ordered a king! You won't regret splurging for this gorgeous mat!

Ah thank you so much, Hilary! how wonderful to feel your deep appreciation for our offerings...and we love how you're supporting women in (re)claiming their yoni-powers too!
I never write reviews but this “blanket” has been the best purchase I’ve made in a long time. I’ve tried other methods but they fall apart after used and washed a lot or they make a puddle and don’t soak anything up. That’s what I was looking for, something that didn’t make a puddle. This has been the answer to everything. It’s soft, durable, doesn’t make any noise, and very big so you don’t have to worry about making sure it’s underneath you. It doesn’t make a puddle, and it doesn’t even seep through to the fabric on the other side. The bed is completely dry and it’s a sigh of relief that its such an easy clean up that you don’t have to worry about. I throw it in the washer and then in the dryer and then let it air dry afterwards and it’s as good as new. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Wow, thank you so much! We really appreciate you speaking to the competition because we have tested a lot of them, too. No puddles on a Venus Mat, woo hoo!
Lovely colors, soft feel, much heavier than anticipated and totally a joy to use.
True! The three layers of fabric really give the mat some delicious weight. Thanks for your review!
I get that this is not what this mat is intended for, but I have used it exclusively for my baby (now toddler) and myself since I found out I was pregnant. I initially thought I would use this to sit on in my last weeks of pregnancy in case my water broke, but it's been a constant companion since it came to our home! I used it every day post-partum through all sorts of body fluid leakage from my newborn and myself. Now that she's a little older we use it to cover "her spot" on the couch. My couch is immaculate. Sticky toddler fingers and diaper fails have had zero impact on my furniture. Now we're entering the potty training phase and this thing is such a blessing I just bought a second one! If the King size ever comes back in stock I'll buy a third. Excellent product. Every woman and parent should have at least one!
Thanks so much... We love laying sacred ground for toddlers, too. And we will have more king-sized mats this week!
Still amazed by how well this mat works. Not a drop goes through. It gives so much comfort, I could even say this was the best present to myself ever. Note: If you live abroad, keep in mind that there could be extra costs for import (didn't realise that, was not a pleasant surprise). Worth every euro though :)
Love that: “The best present” for yourself—what a great gift, indeed. We do state that international shipping requires customs fees in the shipping section of each product and we appreciate you giving the heads up to others.
