It's no surprise that the sex toy industry is huge business. Over the last several years it's gone from a small market that catered to a few, to a multi-billion dollar industry that continues to grow, and grow rapidly. One of the reasons it's doing so well is because more and more people are buying sex toys, as the quality and innovation of the toys becomes more exciting and competitive, leading to even more toys.
But while there are so many toys out there that are truly mind-blowing in their creativity, as sex toy retailer Lovehoney found, people still love the tried and true reliability that comes with the classic dildo, which unlike vibrators, are intended for penetration.. It was with this knowledge in mind that Lovehoney conducted a survey of 11,400 American sex toy owners to get their input on dildos.
What they found was that of those 11k+ respondents, 70 percent of them own at least one dildo. It also seems that dildo use gets more popular with age, as 71 percent of Americans over 40 (men and women) own one, compared to 68 percent of those between 18 and 30. Also, women corner the market on dildo ownership at 78 percent, compared to 64 percent of men.
But the survey didn't stop there. Here are the top 10 states for dildo ownership, according to Lovehoney.
