Valentine’s Day sparks sex doll stampede

13 February 2012 Valentine’s Day sparks sex doll stampede

Some Aussie men are likely to be spending Valentine’s Day with a sex doll following soaring demand for inflatable lovers, according to new data from online marketplace

The site has been swamped with enquiries for sex dolls, vibrators and dildos in the months leading up to Valentine’s Day, with searches for plastic partners alone increasing by 240 per cent year on year.


Sex dolls were the most searched for sex toy on the site by Australian buyers, accounting for 44 per cent of enquiries within the category between July and December 2011.


Searches for dildos rose by 142 per cent rise compared to the same time last year, while interest in vibrators increased by 98 per cent.


The search terms “sex toys for men” and “bondage” were also popular among Australian users.


“Valentine’s Day doesn’t spell romantic dinners and moonlight walks on the beach for everyone,” Director of International Business Development and Marketing Asia Pacific, Daphne Lee said.


“For some Aussies, it means celebrating solo in the bedroom with a pumped-up or battery-operated playmate. Sex toys are now mainstream and for many retailers who sell them, Valentine’s Day is the busiest day of the year.”


Australians accounted for 4 per cent of global searches for sex dolls on, behind America which accounted for 28 per cent and the UK with 5 per cent.


The statistics also showed searches for “sexy underwear” by global buyers peaked in November 2011, rising 36 per cent between the third and fourth quarter.
