Major Retailers Adding Adult Toys To Store Shelves
This could redefine ‘grocery shopping’! Big chain stores will start to stock and sell adult toys soon. Read the story after the jump.
It used to be that you had to order sex toys from a catalog that you kept hidden from the kids, or visit a seedy looking ‘novelty’ store. Not anymore! Big chain stores like Walgreens, CVS, Target, Walmart, and Kroger are now adding sex toy aisles to their stores. These big retailers say that they are responding to customer demand. Adult toys racked up $4.4 million in sales in the first quarter of 2012 alone, and sales are only expected to increase. Sexperts say that target marketing to the average woman, and the recent popularity of the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy have led to the stores’ decision to add adult toys into their inventory.
So here’s my question; Do you throw them in the cart with the bread and milk, and if you’re as bashful as I am, do you use the self check-out lane?
