The coronavirus outbreak means people across the globe have been advised to self isolate, and stay at home to prevent COVID-19 from spreading.

Although some shops have closed due to the pandemic, and some customers are stockpiling products, there has been a need for erotic products.

According to sex toy brand Womanizer, sales in sex toys have spiked by 50% since the pandemic.

Canada and USA have seen sales soar by up to 135% from January to March, while Italy and Hong Kong have had a 60% and 71% increase respectively.

Speaking about their findings, Johanna Rief - the Head of Sexual Empowerment at Womanizer - said: “Of course, we didn’t anticipate a surge in sales of Womanizer due to corona. Many people and businesses are affected negatively by the virus and we saw it as a challenge for us as well. The numbers are therefore surprising.

“With the prospect of long periods at home either alone or with your partner, people are exploring new ways to make the best of the time available.”

Meanwhile, leading sex toy brand, Love Honey, has found 63% of women are more likely to use sex toys to turn up the heat when things get steamy under the sheets compared to 54% of men.

Whether you are championing self love, or spicing things up with a partner, there are a whole host of props that will hit the spot.
