“The big moment was in Sex & the City when Miranda described her experience with The Rabbit. That was the first time that an adult novelty was talked about on mainstream TV. All of a sudden, women were running out to buy their first vibrators,” says Lewis.
After this surge, the quality of female sex toys started to improve drastically, and price points began to climb.
“What caused this change was smaller, independent manufacturers designing items for women who cannot orgasm purely through intercourse,” says Lewis. Products like the We-Vibe bring clitoral stimulation in through intercourse, and essentially revolutionized the sex industry and actual sex. (Thank you. NO, seriously. I have two.)
Unfortunately for the fellas, the same was not true for the goodies in their toy boxes.
