Top 5 Sex Toy Trends to Look Out For In 2017

Top 5 Sex Toy Trends to Look Out For In 2017
By Tony Gonzalez 2 years ago 3829 Views No comments

The adult pleasure product industry has an exciting time ahead. Recent advances in tech have allowed products and the way they are brought to market to change drastically for the better. We’ve predicted how this will evolve in 2017, and what we can look forward to as the outcome.

1. VR

The BKK Cup VR masturbator arrived on the scene in time for summer 2016, garnering heavy interest on our stand at ETO Show. The product has turned heads, and recent updates to the app have allowed for more content to be enjoyed by the user. Virtual Reality offers near total immersion, and with the updated Sony PS4 games console bringing the tech into homes in time for Christmas, by next year Virtual Reality will no longer be a gimmick; it will be a staple of the modern home entertainment unit. As more and more people embrace VR, the adult industry will be sure to have a captive audience.

2. Kickstarter Campaigns

Dame recently became the first manufacturer to successfully launch a sex toy product on Kickstarter. Crowdfunded sex toys are not new, but Kickstarter themselves have avoided the category. The Fin is the first product of its kind on Kickstarter, and we now expect the floodgates to open on the popular crowdfunding platform for others to follow suit.

3. Hyper-Realism

For some, realism is everything, and for a long time now sex toys have tried their best to imitate the look and feel of real genitalia and orifices for the customer’s pleasure. In 2016, Pipedream brought that to whole new levels with the King Cock – a range of realistic dildo’s that replicated every vein and wrinkle of the real thing. Lingox provided their option for male clientele with the Lingox Triple - a male masturbator with a lifelike tongue to replicate fellatio. We can only see this trend continuing through 2017, as the look and feel of sex toys gets closer and closer to the real thing.

4. Sex Toys as Merchandise

Motörhead, Mötley Crüe, Fifty Shades of Grey – all 3 have released sex toys as part of their merchandise range, and while it was an obvious choice for Fifty Shades of Grey, the surprise success of such products for two aging metal bands could well continue into the new year. Your move Metallica.

5. Sexual Health Products

Sexual health has been on our agenda for a while now. We were proud to stock the Femintimate range early in the year, and ecstatic at the positive reviews received so far. Sexual Health is important to us, and we welcome the upward trend in interest. Making sure these products are accessible to consumers is important, as a healthy sex life is something no one should be without.

What do you think will be the biggest trend in 2017? Let us know in the comments below.
