Men 'starting to use sex toys'

It appears more men may soon be buying sex toys such as cock rings and sex lube, as it has been claimed guys are becoming more open to such items.

Stephen Hackett, managing director of Venus Sales, which is based in Redditch, noted it has been known for a while that males enjoy using sex toys in the bedroom - but getting them to admit to it is another matter entirely.

The industry figure explained a shame element has hung over talking about such things for fellas, although this could all be about to change.

He noted sales of lubricant have been particularly notable of late, while toy cleaner is another product proving favourable at the moment.

"Keeping your toy clean can help the toy to last longer and in these days of financial difficulties, customers are looking to ensure their purchase lasts as long as possible," Mr Hackett went on to point out.
