PEARL, Miss. — In the fallout of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, Tami Rose, sexpert and owner of brick-and-mortar retail establishment Romantic Adventures, has seen sales of anal and other role-play toys increase.
“Our state unfortunately put a trigger law into effect that makes having an abortion punishable by up to 10 years in prison, which has upset many people who believe in freedom of choice, privacy and sovereignty over our own bodies,” Rose said. “What we are seeing now is an apparent explosion in the enjoyment of anal sex, according to store sales over the past few weeks.”
Rose shared that both in-store and online sales for anal play products are at a rate that is "unprecedented" since Rose took over Romantic Adventures in 2016.
“We assumed that our store would take a hit with fewer customers, but we are finding that our customers are simply shifting to different ways of enjoying intimacy,” Rose added.
In addition to anal toys, sales of bondage gear and kink items have gone up as well.
Rose believes this is because “people are going to enjoy having sex one way or another, and we are going to continue to support healthy sexual attitudes and our sex-positive customers as part of the human experience,” she explained.
