Sex doll shops ‘can’t keep up with demand’ during coronavirus lockdown

Horndogs on lockdown are hot on sex dolls!

Demand for the human-like silicone gals have shot up so much amid the coronavirus quarantine, suppliers are struggling to keep up production, according to a report.

The Florida-based company Sex Doll Genie saw orders spike by more than 51 percent during February and March — when lockdowns began in the US and other countries, Forbes reported.

“We have lots of products in stock but we can’t work fast enough to keep up with demand,” the company’s co-founder, Janet Stevenson, told the outlet. “We are hiring as quickly as we can and have created several new roles in fulfillment management and customer support in both the US and Europe.”

Stevenson said the company — which sells realistic-looking made-to-order dolls — has gotten “hundreds” more inquiries than usual in the past two months.

UK-based sex toy manufacturer CMG Leisure has also found themselves short-staffed as sales have skyrocketed amid the pandemic, Forbes reports.

And demand isn’t just coming from single men, the demographic traditionally associated with the sex doll market.

“What’s interesting about this massive increase in demand is that we are also seeing a changing demographic which is very positive for the sex doll industry and speaks to changing attitudes at home,” Stevenson told Forbes.

“What we are seeing now is doll use is going mainstream with men and women both enthusiastic about bringing a doll into their bedroom.”

Sex Doll Genie’s other co-founder, Stevenson’s husband Amit, said couples are also fuelling demand.

“We are seeing the sex doll industry go through a revolution during the COVID-19 pandemic with a huge increase in orders from both couples and male and single females,” he told the UK’s Daily Star.

The company also plans to introduce sex robots that “breathe” and come complete with a heartbeat.

“I haven’t seen them used on a person yet, they are still in production, but we are getting to the point where we can call them a sex robot, but technically they are sex dolls as well,” Amit told the publication.
