According to retailers in Alberta, Canada, sales of sex toys have increased during the fall season for one major reason: the lockout of the National Hockey League.

“We’d be gearing up for [NHL hockey] now, but there’s nothing, so I guess we need to find some better ways to spend our time,” Vinay Morker, owner of Hush Lingerie and More in Edmonton, told the Toronto Sun. According to Morker, he claims that the sales of sex games, sex toys, lingerie and sexual guides has increased by 15 percent since the beginning of October.

“When Oilers fans, mostly guys, have to break their routine of seeing every game, they have more time,” Morker said. “And there’s nothing better than spending it with your spouse or girlfriend.”

On the other side of things, some believe that the increase in sales of sex toys is a trend projected back in May, partly because of the bad economy.
