The online vendor Erotik.com reports that its sales have increased dramatically since the first cases of corona infections in Europe.
As also announced by the German tabloid BILD in its live corona ticker, the demand for online pornography has been growing massively for several days now. The DVD and VOD provider Erotik.com reports: »So far, the high point was achieved last Sunday: On March 8, 2020, the provider Erotik.com recorded higher sales than on Black Friday, which is usually the day with the highest sales of the year. This applies to Video on Demand, i.e. downloads, as well as DVDs.«
According to the specialists at Erotik.com, the sales figures for DVDs are absolutely untypical for this time of year. Some customers apparently want to hoard not only toilet paper and noodles but also their own inventory of porn. It seems that in times of crisis users also begin to hoard media that can be played offline and in quarantine.
A representative of the company is amazed: »In some cases, DVD orders were placed for several thousand euros. The highest single order was even 6,700 Euros.« Especially from Italy, which is particularly badly affected and completely quarantined, and the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the number of orders tripled.
