(PRWEB UK) 2 November 2012
It may be famous for its rain, but it seems that the weather can do nothing to dampen the ardour of amorous Mancunians.
Manchester has been named the UK’s sexiest city by Desire and Pleasure; FPA’s charity online sex toy website (http://www.desireandpleasure.co.uk). Researchers found that Manchester was leading the way in a UK boom for sex toys that has seen demand increase by 92% over the last two and a half years*.
The research looked at 30 months of online searches from across the UK, gathering evidence of people’s purchasing habits for sex toys.
London came second in the study, with the cities of Sheffield, Glasgow and Edinburgh completing the top 5.
Terry Hawkins, Business Development Manager at FPA says: “People are understandably reluctant to discuss their sexual habits, so we used an analysis of online behaviour to show what their sexual habits really are.
“It’s clear that the UK has seen a huge increase in demand for sex toys over the last two and a half years, with interest up by an average of 92%. It seems that cities in the north of the UK are leading this trend making up four of our top five sexiest cities.”
Terry believes that this growth in interest across the UK is being fuelled by the greater anonymity offered by the internet, allowing us to overcome our traditional shyness when it comes to buying sex products.
“There’s no doubt that the internet is a very useful resource for people wanting to explore their sexual desires and shop for products that they may have been too nervous to buy in the past,” says Terry.
“It’s also a great source of information and advice, and we’d urge anyone experimenting sexually to also look up useful information such as how to use sex toys safely.”
Desire and Pleasure is a social enterprise by sexual health charity FPA and provides useful advice and guidance relating to using sex toys safely on its website.
