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.

Wedding season is in full swing. I know because my sister just got married last week! My biggest wish for my sister and brother-in-law is a long and happy life together.
I read articles about happy relationships and happy marriages all the time, but happiness can mean something different for each couple.
On these momentous occasions we might wonder: "What can newly married couples do to ensure successful relationships?" "How can they keep Monogamy fun and exciting?" And for the couple's friends: "Is giving sexy wedding gifts a good idea or off limits?"
I bet you know someone who's getting married this summer too! More than a third of couples choose the summer as the time to tie the knot.
As we watch our happily coupled friends say "I do" we want all the best things for them; happy households, growing families, and long fulfilling lives together. Keep reading to learn more about what it takes to make it work and let's see what happens next...
You might not know that Lovehoney Headquarters (HQ) has been the location and subject of not one but two documentary film crews. First, there was 'More Sex Please, We're British' and now 'Frisky Business'.
This time there are SIX hour long episodes available for your viewing pleasure. Are you curious about life working at Lovehoney?
Originally only available to watch in the UK, us yanks can now binge watch the entire season on Netflix!
After months of being followed by cameras and being interviewed on a daily basis, the folks at HQ announced 'Frisky Business' back in March.
Throughout the series, you'll see average days working in the sex toy industry and get to know the whole lovable and silly gang, doing our part to keep the world sexually happy. 'Frisky Business' is a frank, funny and friendly insight to the adult retail world and shows what makes working at Lovehoney extra special.
