Not only porn but also sex toys and condoms are currently in great demand. The restrictive measures to fight the spread of the coronavirus are providing many online retailers and manufacturers in the sextoy business with a huge increase in sales.
A lot of time at home and an extremely limited social life lead to an increased demand for sex toys and pleasure products in Germany. Many manufacturers and online retail companies report growing demand and high sales figures.
Sales doubling at Ritex
The German condom manufacturer Ritex, for example, is pleased with a substantial increase in sales. According to the company, the number of condoms sold has doubled compared to the same month last year. A company spokesperson says: »Bulk packs have sold particularly well.«
However, not only condoms but also lubricant is in strong demand. After all, lubricants are not only needed when making love as a couple, gels also make the use of sex toys more sensual and exciting for many.
Eis.de reports increased demand for pressure wave vibrators
The online retailer and VENUS exhibitor Eis.de also reported an increase in the number of orders. According to the company, pressure wave vibrators are particularly popular at the moment. The sister company, the manufacturer Satisfyer, can therefore also be happy about increased demand.
Even in the midst of the crisis, the Bielefeld based company is offering attractive discounts week after week with toys sometimes being offered for a fraction of the recommended retail price.
LELO: High-end toys to indulge during the lockdown
The VENUS exhibitor LELO from Sweden has also seen an increase in demand. The company is currently offering a discount of 15% on its high-end toys. Customers can use the code Stayhome to obtain the discount.
LELO’s demand is also fueled by the fact that two of its toys were recommended by Yahoo Lifestyle as among the seven best vibrators for the lockdown.
About the LELO Soraya 2, the editors said, »The notorious rabbit vibrator from Sex and the City gets an upgrade with this tech-enhanced version. Featuring a silicone-wrapped shaft and a branched-out “rabbit ear” designed to stimulate the clitoris when the tool is inserted, this dual-stimulating device covers many bases.«
Commenting on the Ora 3 oral sex simulator, the Yahoo team wrote, »If you thought all vibrators could do was vibrate, think again. This donut-shaped device simulates oral sex with a silicone-encased rotating nub that feels just like a tongue. Finally, cunnilingus without the nuisance of having another person in the room.«
