Sex Toys Popularized by the Media - News, Movies, Magazines, Blogs

Sex toys have been featured in the media for quite some time now, but really went mainstream after the infamous Sex in the City scene in 1998 that featured the “Rabbit Vibrator”. When the episode aired, the manufacturer of the Rabbit, Vibratex, wasn’t even aware of it, but thanks to the exposure, the sex toy company saw sales jump 700% over the next several years. The whole sex toy industry saw sales grow substantially as well – changing sex toys from a topic that was frequently considered taboo, to something that could be discussed openly (as it should be!).


Since then, we’ve seen the mainstream media – which includes online and offline magazines, as well as a wide variety of popular health & beauty blogs, riding the wave of sex toy popularity by creating articles about sex toys for women, including pieces about vibrators, clitoris stimulators, and anal toys, just to name a few.

Most Popular Adult Sex Toys As Seen In News And Media

Many sex toys earn their “most popular” badge for improving sexual health between couples – driven largely due to the popularity of sex toys like We-Vibe couple’s vibrators, which are designed to provide pleasure to both partners simultaneously. For men, media has been covering popular sex toys including the best masturbation sleeves, such as the hugely popular Pornstar series of male masturbators, as well as the benefits of male prostate massagers. And of course almost all of online media sources jumped on the “best sex toy for” bandwagon, creating articles that are ultimately designed to generate revenue for themselves through the use of affiliate links (so be aware of these!).
