Sex Toys are Most Popular in Florida
The result of a specific survey is very different from the results that the Huffington Post came up with in 2012. In that year, the most sex toys were sold in Wyoming and Alaska. The reasons for buying and using sex toys were to spice things up in the bedroom for women who garnered no satisfaction, and single women who wanted to pleasure themselves. The survey in 2012 (1) shows that Americans spend $15 billion on sex toys, annually. It also shows that 44% of women aged 18 to 60 have used one, and that 78% of those women were in a relationship when they did.
