French Don’t Want Sex Toys In Recession

Contrary to what’s going on here in the U.S., sales of sex toys, massage oils, and other kinky stuff have declined in France, according to vendors at Big Eropolis, an erotic fair near Paris. Attendance has been about the same as last year, said the fair’s organizer, but visitors are buying less. “We always managed to sell [customers] two or three items,” said a vendor. “Now, alas, they leave with one single item. We feel the impact.” To some visitors, the decline in sales didn’t make sense because people tend to like having fun at home during a recession, which is why sex toy sales have jumped in the U.S. Maybe the French are just more ingenious than Americans and don’t need toys? Or maybe there has been a spike in banana and cucumber sales, instead. [Reuters]
