Least I Could Do

I admit I’m not a complicated man, and for sheer marketing alone, the Sumo Lounge bean bag chair had me at ‘hello’. And by hello, I’m obviously referencing the attractive women that grace the Sumo site (

Hot blonde aside, let’s get to the chair itself, and I use the term ‘chair’ for lack of a better word.

Beanbag chairs have been around since the beginning of time, or at least as early as any of us will care about. Previous incarnations have mostly included cheap versions of beans wrapped in a thin layer of fabric. Overtime, the fabric would erode and eventually crack leading to a hole which in turn dumps several thousand beads onto your floor. (Writer’s Note: This can actually be a fun game to play with an inebriated friend)

The Sumo Omni is as different from your typical bean bag chair as your aunt is to your buddy’s hot cousin.

For starters, the Omni is massive. At 4.5′ by 5.5′, it looks at first glance like a giant pillow. A pillow that could engulf a good chunk of the state of California (the useless part – no worries), but a pillow none the less. After getting comfortable though, you’ll soon realize that the Omni can be shaped in any way your imagination can conceive and can fit whatever function you might require.

A floor cushion, a recliner, a love seat or even a temporary bed for that hobbit that followed you home from Gondor; the Omni can handle it all.

The Omni comes chalk full of their patented Sumo Beads. While I may not be a scientist, and my attempt to dissect one of the beads failed, I will tell you that they’re comfortable when joined by a million of their closest friends, a lot more then you might think.

Overall, the Sumo Omni is a great addition to any home; a dorm room, a living room or a play room.

And yes, it can be used for sexual endeavors.

And yes, it is rather enjoyable.

Stop asking so many questions.
