Women Now Want Fifty Shades of Vanilla Sex, concludes a survey conducted by leading mainstream luxury vibrators and couples massagers manufacturer, LELO.
The 2014 Global Sex Survey (the information from which is made up from data collected between December 2012 and December 2013 as well as results of January 2014 survey responses) shows that although more women tried kinky sex acts since 2012, they are now returning to their ‘tried and tested’ methods of finding sexual pleasure.
Women have officially ’emerged from this kinky ‘Fifty Shades’ phase with more liberated attitudes, finding ways beyond the novelty and kink to enhance intimacy with their partners,’ say LELO.
LELO’s survey conclusion also goes on to highlight the popularity of sex toys amongst committed couples, with sex counselor and best-selling author Ian Kerner, PhD stating:
“Sex toys are a great idea for couples; they are not only a fantastic way to spice up your sex life together, but they work. They help women reach the heights of orgasms that are usually difficult for most.”
Just before Valentine’s Day 2014, LELO have released the news that there is a spike in purchases of couples’ vibrators and sex toys, such as their brand new Hula Pleasure Beads, oral sex simulator ORA, as well as the rotating vibrator for couples, IDA.
What do you think? Is kinky sex out this year? Should sexual enjoyment be linked to cultural and societal trends? Are BDSM and sex toys entirely independent pursuits?
