If you’ve ever wanted a sneak peek into just how naughty Aussie mums and dads can be in the bedroom, this is it.

The folks at online adult destination, Randy Fox, have all the saucy, sexy data on Australian sex lives, and you might just be surprised who’s doing what, with whom, and how. It is anonymous, statistical data by the way, so don’t stress!

Say what?

Yep. Adult toys are a common thing in your average Australian family household.

A big, big thing. No pun intended. So here’s everything you need to know about toys in the ‘burbs. Who’s buying them, what they’re buying … and between us, what’s selling so you can grab one (or two) to spice up your sex life as well!

Forget the assumption that parents are too tired or too busy for sex. Enjoying one another with the help of a little ‘friend’ is far more mainstream than you might think. In fact, Aussie bedrooms are buzzing when it comes to sex – quite literally!  And with 75% of toys being sold to couples, now’s the perfect time to whip something up for yourself (or your partner) and add a cheeky dimension to time alone with your special someone (or yourself!)

Aussie couples are letting their favourite TV and movie moments inspire then in the bedroom.

Do you have a favourite toy? (Asking for a friend of course!)

Well, it seems that being coy about toys in the bedroom is a thing of the past. In fact, bedroom antics are even a hot topic at the school gate (once the kids are out of earshot, of course). Gone are the days of having to don a trench coat and sunglasses when heading to your nearest adult shop. Instead, modern mums (and dads) let their fingers do the walking and order toys straight to their bedrooms, and the internet is to thank for making it easier (and far more discreet) than ever.

But hang on a minute. Queensland you feisty foxes! Another 22% of “unmarked post box goodies” head north of the border your way. and it gets better … when we crunch the numbers and adjust for population,  Queenslanders win the shiny, sex toy buying crown. Yep, turns out there really is a lot of hot diggity going on up north because Queenslanders buy more adult toys per capita than any other state. Go you!

What’s sparking our new sex toy obsession?

Well, obviously because it feels good. And once you start, one is never enough.

But from a cultural standpoint, you can probably thank Sex and the City and Fifty Shades of Grey. Adult toys are now loud and proud, becoming a part our favourite TV shows and not as taboo as they used to be. And if it’s good enough for rabbit-devotee Charlotte, who are we to argue?

Aussie couples are letting their favourite kinky TV and movie moments inspire then in the bedroom.

I’ll have what she’s having (AKA Don’t be Scared, Start Here!)

Keeping your sex life fresh in a long term relationship is not always easy. Add a couple of kids. And a dozen or so years ‘doing it’ the same old way? We’ve all been there.
