I'm not sure there are any studies out there to prove it, but I have a theory that during tough economic times, when most retail stores are struggling to stay alive, sex stores are doing just fine. After all, condoms are cheap!
To bolster this theory, along comes an article in BBC News online that says Brits are turning to sex as a way to save money but still have fun and not feel like they are depriving themselves. In a survey of 2,000 adults in Great Britain, sex was their favorite free activity, ahead of window shopping and gossiping.
Of course, any news story would not be responsible if it did not carry a caveat reminding people to engage in safe sex -- so, consider that warning as part of this blog, as well!
Have fun, but stay safe!
