It’s been over a year since the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic popped out of nowhere to fuck up our lives and solidify TP’s place in the necessities hierarchy. In that time we’ve experienced an extended isolation period that’s counter to human nature, leaving the most introverted among us in dire need of a hug. However there’s good news for Americans as vaccinations roll out across the Country, leading folks to look forward to the “hot vaxx summer.” The people are horny, and it’s being reflected in condom sales.
According to CNN Business, condom sales have been surging as people get ready to sow their vaccinated wild oats, because what better way to celebrate a pandemmy slow down than between the legs of a stranger! In stark contrast to the beginning of the pandemic when condoms were in short supply, now companies such as Durex and Trojan are seeing everyone’s… excitement reflected in the numbers of sales.
According to research firm IRI (via CNN) this is following a 4.4% drop in sales in 2020, a consequence of social distancing and other restrictions that made opportunities for sexy get-togethers a little more challenging for folks. Walgreens and CVS also told CNN of notable improvements in the sales of condoms in their stores.
According to a survey conducted by sex toy company Skynn, 39% of respondents reported having an increased sex drive during the pandemic. Turns out all this *gestures wildly* whatever isn’t just making us sad and awkward, but horny too!
Poor singles have had quite the dry spell if they were following the rules, so it makes sense that the push to vaccinate and the potential of getting back in the proverbial saddle would be a thrill and a half. Let’s just be happy folks are clever enough to be using protection. Not only is it great for their lives and freedom personally, but this way we also have the data that confirms that even in a global crisis, people be horny AF.
