Canadian hockey fans are bummed about the NHL lockout. It's been tough living without their favorite sport.
In an effort to lift their spirits, Canadians have been increasingly engaging in the world's most loved activity- sex!
Sex toy retailers in Alberta, Canada say that business has been doing well this Fall, and they thank the NHL lockout.
“We’d be gearing up for [NHL hockey] now, but there’s nothing, so I guess we need to find some better ways to spend our time,” Vinay Morker, owner of Hush Lingerie and More in Edmonton, said.
I don't blame the Canadians. We Americans love hockey and sex as well. Who doesn't?
Morker claims his sales of sex toys, sex games, sexual guides and lingerie have risen 15 per cent since October. That's quite a spike in sales, and I don't think it's just a coincidence.
Hal Roseberg, owner of Edmonton's Tease Adult Boutique, has noticed his business making more money as well.
“I suppose that’s one of the other reasons it’s as busy as it is -- there’s no hockey,” he said.
An alternative theory about the rise in sales is that there is a growing interest globally in various forms of sexual entertainment. In May, experts predicted sex toy sales would quickly rise around the world, with some believing the bad economy would be an influence.
“At a time when unemployment is high," Stefan Dallakian, owner of Paris Intimates, said, "and bank account balances are low, people are passing the time by getting busy."
Whatever makes you happy.
