SAN FRANCISCO — Sales of sex toys for men have seen a recent boost says San Francisco-based sex-positive retailer Good Vibrations.
Noting XBIZ’s report on an 18-percent increase in male sex toy sales, Good Vibes says it has seen a similar trend.
Executive Vice President Jackie Strano says, "This is an exciting time for men's toys, with a marked increase in quality, design and options. We have moved far beyond the basic sleeve of yesteryear. Today's designers have gotten incredibly creative with men's products, they're techy, user-friendly, and fun to use either solo or with a partner."
Topping the list of popular items are the Fleshlight, cock rings, and Tenga Eggs.
“Partners will love the Mio Cock Ring, a stretchy, rechargeable ring made from super soft yet amazingly sturdy silicone, and durable enough to stand up to your most passionate play,” the company said.
Good Vibes also spotlights Fun Factory’s Stronic Zwei and Jopen’s e4.
Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist Dr. Carol Queen says, “While we have always been a resource for men, we are beginning to see more heterosexual men experimenting with prostate play and prostate toys, which is great both for pleasure and health. The prostate benefits from stimulation. As we like to say, ‘an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away!’ Unless of course, you're looking for a PhD in sexology, in which case I'm happy to answer any questions."
