According to a report by Punch, titled, “Nigeria’s s*x toys market booms despite recession” s*x toys worth millions of naira are sold every month in Nigeria.
A s*x therapist and s*x toy vendor, Mrs. Iheoma Obibi, explained that Nigerians are gradually coming out of some sort of “s*xual darkness” and this is creating a boom in the market.
Kemi Fawole, a certified s*x therapist, who has been dealing in adult products including s*x toys for the past six and half years explained that she sells at least N7m worth of s*x toys yearly.
For Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, an actress who is also a s*x toy vendor, she cannot estimate how much s*x toys she sells but it brings in about 3million naira in about three to six months.
Another s*x toy vendor, Japhet Okoromadu who started selling online about a year ago, said that the demand he gets for s*x toys are more than his available stocks.
Obibi said that the industry is growing so big that vendors who sell quality products are now having issues with people who sell substandard products.
Ibidapo-Obe explained that women who go for s*x toys should be praised because most of them are faithful.
According to her, if s*x toy helps her client to stay faithful and avoid sexually transmitted diseases through multiple partners, then it is something that should be embraced.
