New Zealand online adult toy and lingerie retailer, Adulttoymegastore, compiled a list of New Zealand’s favourite sex toys for 2017, which provides an interesting insight into what Kiwis get up to behind closed doors.
Adulttoymegastore product manager Emma Hewitt said the online retailer supplies thousands of adult toys to New Zealanders each and every year, and 2017 was no different.
“Each year sex toy sales in New Zealand have increased. This shows that the demand for sex toys is growing, and more people are trying them. It’s particularly exciting because it means that sex toys are becoming more normalised and they’re being recognised for what they really are - tools for enhancing people’s sex lives.”
“We sold a lot of beginner toys in 2017, but we also sold a lot of more advanced toys, such as electro-stimulation products, very large anal toys, realistic dolls worth thousands of dollars, sex swings, sex machines, and some extremely hardcore bondage equipment. There are certainly a lot of very impressive sex toy collections in New Zealand!”

Emma said 2018 is expected to be a year of increased awareness and sales of sex toys in New Zealand due to the anticipated release of Fifty Shades Freed, the final installment in the Fifty Shades saga.
“Each time a Fifty Shades film is released we see an influx of orders for sex toys and bondage equipment featured in the film. We’re expecting the same to happen when the final film is released on Valentine’s Day this year.”
