2016’s Forecast: Sunny with a High Chance of Bum Fun

Our friends at LELO, makers of some of the world’s best sex toys, are confident that anal sex, prostate massaging and pegging are set to become big trends in 2016 as society breaks away from the mindset that some pleasures are only for one type of gender or sexual orientation.

It’s All About the Booty

As 2015 continued to bring sexual identity and gender expression to the forefront of mainstream conversation, LELO witnessed a shift in sex toy sales, with prostate massagers jumping up the ranks to become one of the top sold pleasure products. LELO reports that anal pleasure is the most commonly enquired topic they received going into 2016, with “which toys to use,” “which products can be shared by partners” and “the best techniques” all making up the top three questions, with enquiries about pegging techniques on the rise as well. Last year saw sales of male anal pleasure objects increase by close to 200%, and LELO expects a further exponential increase of as much as 400% through 2016.

Liberals Do It Better

Steve Thomson, Chief Marketing Officer at LELO, says: “It seems that we are approaching a critical mass of sex and sexuality in 2016. There is a growing gulf between liberal and conservative attitudes throughout the Western world, and generally speaking the more progressive liberal side is growing at a faster rate than the conservative side. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the sex toy industry: even we at LELO were delighted by the popularity of our newest prostate massagers, such as the LOKI™ Wave. The thirst and the desire is there, and 2016 will be the year that there is a huge revolution in mainstream sexual attitudes.”

The Fall of Gender “Norms”

A broader, more generic trend that’s really driving the development of sex toys across the adult industry is the deepening understanding and knowledge of gender expressions, sexual identities and lifestyles. The language of non-binary genders and sexualities is already in place and more and more people are familiar with terms like “non-monogamy,” “polyamorous” and “genderqueer.” As the confines of sexual identity and gender are torn down, LELO predicts attitudes to sex will continue to evolve, for the better, as people gain confidence to explore pleasure.

However it feels way too good, and it’s impossible to last long enough ahahah. Atleast I’m working nearly over an entire album after learning how to last longer, goo.gl/U28ufq its a free course, hope this helps some of you here.
