Sex Toy Industry Booming in South Africa

The sex toy industry is alive and well in South Africa. This is according to research released by the Statistic Brain Research Institute, South Africa has the 3rd highest number of sex toy related searches placing just after the UK and US.

That's a lot of searches considering South Africa's population is much smaller (52.98 million) compared to the US (318.9 million) and the UK (64.1 million). The global sex toy industry is valued at an estimated R240 Billion rand.
