Adam & Eve veteran researchers polled more than 2,000 visitors to its website, as well as more than 1,000 U.S. adults in the general population to see how the COVID-19 pandemic and accompanying lockdowns have affected their sex lives over the past eight months.
While Adam & Eve customers say they are having more sex during the pandemic, respondents from the general population say their sex lives are more or less the same. Both groups of respondents say they are having sex, on average, once every few days.
Additionally, Adam & Eve customers say they are currently more sexually adventurous while the majority of the general respondents say they are not.
More than half of the Adam & Eve customers polled said they had used a sex toy during this time compared to 30% of the general population. However, more than 18% of the general respondents said they had purchased a sexy toy during the pandemic.
“For many, sex toys have been difficult to come by” said Adam & Eve Internet Marketing Director Glenn Mersereau, who admitted that the multi-award winning retailer has had issues with maintaining inventory.
“Many sex toys come directly from China,” said Glenn Mersereau. “Those items are gradually getting back into stock, but it has taken some time, given the delays in production from the pandemic. said Mersereau.
He continued…“During the pandemic, we’ve seen demand for items increase across the board,” said Mersereau. “Notably, we’ve seen spikes in couples games, certain bondage categories and lingerie. Adam & Eve also saw the number of items per order increase and a gravitation toward more expensive items.” said Glenn.
Mersereau noted that the company’s sales of lotions and oils are up 90% over the same period last year, while lubricants are up nearly 80%. Men’s and women’s lingerie are up more than 70%, male products are up by 60% and vibrator sales are up nearly 80% over last year.
“We are seeing a higher percentage of both new visitors and new buyers to the site,” said Mersereau. “Buyers are up by 54%. Likewise, the number of visitors that are returning to the site is up by 40% over last year.”
These web-based surveys were conducted by adameve.com, and an independent third party survey company, and completed by more than 2,000 adult customers, and 1,000 American adults, in an effort to study sexual preferences and practices.
