    Interesting programme broadcast last Sunday, describes the amazing growth of the sex toy industry. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bggnbm

    Mostly made in China, but not to be mistaken with porcelain, it seems the generations that followed mine can't get enough of them. What do you think is driving the demand?

    Is it amazing? Haven't people always used household objects to pleasure themselves and others?

    Well known that Mars Bars were the first sponsorship for the Rolling Stones.

    I think I'd draw the line at the cheese grater but you've opened up some possible lines of investigation there gdw, so thanks for that thought. :)

    Sex toys are wannabuy products. They are there . . . to buy. Disposable income V. old methods like using fruit and veg and livestock, and increased awareness about orgasms being an achievable norm/expectation, many people now single and not worried about hurting, or incurring the wrath of, a partner. It's a lot more complex than that, obvs - but sticking to a quick-read post on TES.

    ETA: I forgot this one: they are also often being marketed as a 'marital aid'
