There's nothing wrong with a little bit of self lurve.

Lockdown has been incredibly tough on the economy, our mental health and, recently discovered but not at all surprising, our sex lives.

A study from Finder has shown that, thanks to the pandemic, more than 270,000 Australians are having sex with fewer partners. Of those who were already without an existing partner when lockdown began, 24% have stopped seeing new partners and 9% are seeing fewer partners. Damn.

However, it turns out that there is an upside to this madness, with adult toy sales up a whopping 83% from April 2019 to April 2020, according to online marketplace Love the Sales.

Online adult toy haven Lovehoney also reported that while sexual activity has dropped during lockdown, 50% of Australians are spicing things up by trying new things in the bedroom. And with no end to this lockdown in sight, it's probably no surprise that Lovehoney also says that Sydney-siders have been the most avid shoppers in recent weeks.

So if you'd like to jump on the bandwagon, but you're not sure where to start, we thought we'd give you a little helping hand. We've put together a list of the best selling adult toys from Lovehoney so you can get the most bang (wink) for your buck during lockdown.
