Sex toy sales reportedly tripled in the 48 hours leading into the lockdown
Sales of sex toys have tripled in New Zealand just before they could go on a national lockdown on March 25.
Adult Toy Megastore, the nation’s largest retailer for sex toys says locals were and still using their time to stock up on adult products.
“We’re selling a lot of beginner toys … all our beginner ranges are very popular,” Emily Writes, a spokesperson for the business, told The Guardian.
“It definitely looks like people are saying: ‘I’ve got time, I might try something new.”
Adult Toy Megastore has even been declared an essential service by the New Zealand government, as it sells condoms and medical items
