We would like to invite you along on a journey down the rabbit-hole to find out the ins and out of who's really buying sex toys, plus the averages and stats of what (and how much) they're buying!
Who better to take a look at and analyze the sheer volume of Lovehoney sales data but the very talented Ideas Detective himself, Jon Millward - the man who brought us: Deep Inside: A Study Of 10,000 Porn Stars And Their Careers and Dirty Words: A Probing Analysis of 5000 Call Girl Reviews.
Jon studied 1 million Lovehoney orders, minus any personal distinguishing details like last name, address or zip codes. He then added up all the liters and meters and created a gorgeous in-depth infographic to delight our imaginations and boggle our minds.
Read on for the top revelations from his study, or read the full (53 page!) report over on Jon's blog.

Lovehoney and Tracey Cox have teamed up once again to create pleasure products for penises to increase staying power and sexual happiness around the world.
Introducing EDGE: the new range of performance-enhancing sex toys for men.
EDGE is a collection of products for men, including a variety of cock rings, a stamina sleeve and easy to use penis pump. Whether you use these products on your own or with a partner, correct usage can have real, measurable results to your stamina, strength, and size.
Tracey is introducing the EDGE range through a series of videos, found on YouTube at LovehoneyTV. Each video addresses a common sex question or myth. Plus, she created an easy-to-use EDGE iPhone app to help guide your stamina training.
Frequently asked questions inspired this range of products. Many men are new to sex toys, but are looking for ways to last longer, increase penis size, or find creative ways to reach their full potential.
Check out products from Tracey Cox's EDGE collection below to discover how to boost pleasure and performance in bed.
Launching in the UK in October last year, The Bettie Page Official Pleasure Products Collection made its first appearance (and sale) at the London Tattoo Convention, sponsoring the national 'Miss Pin Up UK' competition.
Since then, sales have been consistently strong, with positive feedback from Bettie Page fans and seasoned bondage enthusiasts alike, which has got us grinning from ear to ear!
As an official piece of Bettie Page merchandise, it's very important to us that we please the 'original' Bettie fans, as well as those who have only just discovered her, and the rest who are just looking for a luxurious product to add to their kinky bedroom play.
Amazingly, it seems we've already built up a global fan-base on our Twitter and Facebook accounts (thank you!) but we've noticed that the majority of our followers are in America.
So, with this information in mind, it made sense to launch the collection in the US... and that's what we've done. Read on to discover exactly what's in the range, and catch a preview of our television debut!
On April 21st 2002 Lovehoney shipped its very first order. Six days later the second order came in and Lovehoney has been growing and growing ever since!
Today on our 12th Birthday we are celebrating the success of hundreds of Lovehoney brand products and thousands of orders shipped every day around the world.
Just this year we launched down under in Australia and launched our very first non-English language site in Germany - Lovehoney.de. We're excited to share our vision of sexual happiness around the globe.
Since birthdays are all about presents, here's a selection of our awesome free gift offers. Treat yourself to a new vibrator or something sexy to wear and enjoy an extra special free gift on us!
Here's to another fantastic year for Lovehoney, and a happy year ahead for you too! Take advantage of these amazing free gift offers while they last...
With a deluge of product reviews being submitted throughout March we're quickly building up an impressive collection of customer feedback - thank you!
This month's Review of the Month competition features 3 of our favorite user-uploaded reviews from March.
The overall winner for March is Ungifted with his review of the Kinklab Hammerhead Male Stroker Magic Wand Attachment. Congratulations - you've won yourself a $150 Lovehoney voucher to spend on whatever you like!
"Then I turned the wand on and my life changed. Oh, my, god! For the majority of the time I keep the wand on at its lowest setting as it seems to generate more rumbles (rather than vibrations) which seems to favour this attachment.
"What I love about this is that even without stroking yourself, the sensations from this are so unique, so powerful, so amazing that you can just go hands free."
