Coronavirus self-isolation is causing a worldwide boom in sex toy sales

More and more of us are being driven into self isolation by the worsening coronavirus pandemic.

Those presenting with a persistent cough or a fever should stay at home for seven days.

Family members of those with symptoms should confine themselves to the home for 14 days.

Self-isolation is an extreme form of social distancing.

When isolating yourself you should not leave the house, not even to walk the dog or go to the supermarket.

Sounds great… for a few days.

It seems that people are quickly growing bored of being stuck indoors.

CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

And, they’re finding new ways to entertain themselves.

Sex toy sales are on the rise.

Italians, American and Canadians are currently leading the pack, but Brits are quickly following.

Statistics show that UK sales of sex toys have risen by 13%… proving it’s not just toilet paper we’re panic buying.

Meanwhile Canada has seen a whopping 135% increase and Italians 71%.

Not surprising considering most of Italy is under a lockdown.

Commenting on the global surge in sex toys, leading men’s wellness platform Manual said: “Dating and coronavirus are not a compatible pair, so singles are driving their attention away from dating apps and more towards how they can pleasure themselves in this time of self isolation.

“Currently, people around the world are attempting to limit their exposure to others, which includes time away from dating and meeting new love interests.”



As dating becomes less safe, people are looking for alternative ways to enjoy themselves

This is certainly the case, as dating app Tinder warned its users to take care to wash their hands, use sanitiser, maintain social distance in public and not touch anyones faces.

Manual continued: “We all have sexual needs and, naturally, people are going to find a way to pleasure themselves if they’re not in a relationship.

“Similar to the winter months or during a black out, romantic partners often use sex as their favourite way to pass the time.

“For those singles out there that still want to experience sexual pleasure in this time of social distancing, sex toys could be the answer.”

Some doctors are even predicting that there will be a coronavirus-caused baby boom.

Baby booms are periods where lots of babies are born at the same time, usually caused by a disaster or war.

The generation known as Baby Boomers were born as part of a huge number of births following the end of World War Two.

Star of American Dragon’s Den style programme Shark Tank, Judge Daymond John said: “People gonna be home, gonna have some extra time on their hands.

“A little bored, maybe, or in love. And nine months after everything is over, we’re gonna have a whole lot of babies.”

The theory is gaining popularity as the future generation is being nicknamed “Coronials”.
