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

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.
