For decades Black Friday was the day that people lined up — sometimes hours in advance — and rushed the doors the second the stores open. Black Friday offered not just a jump on holiday shopping, but sales and deals galore. But then something magical happened: the Internet was born. Then suddenly, standing in line in 20-degree weather and tackling someone over the "it" toy to have was no longer necessary. In 2005, Cyber Monday was created — and bosses everywhere watched productivity drop every Monday after Thanksgiving.
As a $15 billion industry that has become more mainstream than ever, it was only a matter of time before sex toy retailers and brands would join in on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday fun, offering some pretty spectacular deals. Besides, who doesn't want an orgasm for the holiday?
"Vibrators kind of level the playing field for women in the bedroom," Claire Cavanah, co-foundeder of Babeland, tells Bustle. "A lot of women really need the consistent stimulation on their clitoris to have same experience as men have."
