Unless you’re living under a rock like Patrick from Spongebob Squarepants, or on a island that is super remote or in the center of a dense forest like the Amazon, you have probably observed that shelves are emptier than normal at supermarkets, as people are hoarding all the goods because of the pandemic: coronavirus. Turns out that we’re not only in need for food dunked in preservatives, toilet paper and disinfectant hand sanitizers. They are now focusing on other required buys like a new sex toy, since basics are settled.
Honestly: Social isolation — which is very important and required at these times — will definitely mess with your personal life, special emphasis on sex life. This is particularly true if you’re single as hell, and going out to bars, clubs or using your preferred dating apps to meet new people is no longer an option for you.
SEX TOY BOUTIQUES MESMERISED.
Sex toy sales have shot up ever since the COVID-19 became a global health crisis. Womanizer, a brand for adult toys, said that it saw a rise of fifty percent in their sales. Sales in sex toys saw a forty percent in France, sixty percent in Italy, a hundred and thirty five percent rise in Canada, seventy percent in US and a seventy one percent in Hong Kong. Even in Australia, since January the sales have increased by thirty one percent.
Another adult toy store in New Zealand has reported a sales surge in vibrators, batteries and lubricants, and gives all the credits to novel coronavirus. Nicole Relph, owner of Adulttoymegastore said the sales rise was first observed when the WHO declared COVID-19 a pandemic. “We’re hearing from our customers that they’re stockpiling batteries and lubrication in case they’re stuck inside due to self-isolation,” she said.
“It has been known for a long time that orgasms help you relax your body and calm your mind meaning a better sleep which in turn means more time for your body to rest,” Ms Relph explained. “Rest is crucial in maintaining a high-functioning immune system. And when you climax your body gets that rush of dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin — all of those feel good hormones”.
IT WAS AN UNPREDICTED SURPRISE:
“Of course, we didn’t anticipate a surge in sales due to coronavirus,” Womanizer’s sexual empowerment head, Johanna Rief, told T3. “We do know that time is an essential factor when it comes to sexuality and self-pleasure. With the prospect of spending more time at home, alone or with your partner, people are exploring new ways to make the best of the time available.” “We-Vibe Chorus is already low in stock as people have shown increased interest during this time,” she explained to FEMAIL. “This could be due to the fact that the We-Connect app allows partners to control vibrations remotely, or for couples who are in work from home conditions together. Sales have continued to surge but stock should be replenished by early next week.”
SEX TOY BRANDS HAVE COME UP WITH A PLAN FOR YOU:
Two sex toy brands are joining hands to send out thousands of vibrators, and help people have an orgasmic quarantine, while they await the dispersal of COVID-19.
