A study by Durex, aptly named the “Sexsus Survey” took a peek into the bedroom habits of Aussies and it looks like frisky Queenslanders are feeling the good vibrations.
A whopping 70% of those in the sunshine state (now we know how it got its name) have used an adult toy, taking out the top position. Not just keen to get down with a toy or two, they spend the most – $101.75 on average, compared to a stingy national average of $78.96. We’re not toying with you here.
To the bottom of the mainland, though, the stingiest sex toy buyers hail from Victoria, where they’ll shell out, on average, no more than $65.60.
And when they do buy a battery-operated buddy, their lips are sealed (metaphorically speaking) as 44% choose not to swap bedtime stories, compared to a national average of 38%.
On the other side of the bed, New South Wales is home to the most prudes when it comes to vibrators, dildos and toys (oh my!). Only 56% have used one, either alone or with a partner, slipping behind the national average of 62%. What a buzz kill!
The ol’ bricks and mortar shopfront fails in South Australia, as 77% surveyed prefer to buy their toys online. But Western Australians are not shy at all – with 55% more than okay to strut into a shop and walk out with a new addition to the tool box. Vibin’.
So while it seems Aussies aren’t all vibrating on the same frequency, 81% of us are keen to chat about what lies beneath the sheets. Even better, 59% of those that use a toy get the motor revving 3.6 times a week.
In the wise words of spiritual healer Kendrick Lamar, ‘b*tch, don’t kill my vibe’.
