Sales of Sex Toys Increase in Canada; NHL Lockout Credited

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

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.”

Hal Roseberg, the owner of Edmonton’s Tease Adult Boutique, told the Toronto Sun that he has seen an increase in business as well. “I suppose that’s one of the other reasons it’s as busy as it is — there’s no hockey,” he said.

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.

“At a time when unemployment is high,” Stefan Dallakian, owner of Paris Intimates, told CNBC, “and bank account balances are low, people are passing the time by getting busy.”
