Seekers of cheap thrills may be excited to hear that Poundland has extended its range of £1 sex toys.
The bargain store’s “Nooky” range of toys comes as research suggests that more than half (54%) of people are swapping weekends away for an evening of love-making at home.
A survey of 1156 men and 920 women found that more than a quarter (28%) of men would be happy buying sex toys as part of their weekly shop - compared with just 12% of women.
The chain’s research found that 68% of women feel embarrassed going into high street sex shops.
Poundland’s £1 bullet vibrator, released in October 2016, was an instant best-seller, giving shoppers what the store says was a 90% saving compared with the high street and online stores.
Now the range will include a finger fun stimulator, vibrating love ring, joy ring, sexual vitality supplements, supplement for men and pure lube.
Sex and behaviour expert Dr Pam Spurr said: “It’s often thought Brits are prudish when discussing their sex lives, but we’ve found people are actually shopping for sex toys every month.
“Poundland’s Nooky sex toys are giving couples the excuse to make the most of the cold winter weather between the sheets instead of spending hundreds on a dirty weekend away.”
