With the launch of new sex products and products for couples in the market, the focus is shifting to safer sex and the latest innovations, experts say.
The New York Times reported on March 23 that the industry is moving away from the traditional male-dominated sex market to one that more closely mirrors that of the gay community.
However, while the industry continues to grow and diversify, there are still many barriers to getting the latest products to consumers, according to the Times.
As part of its commitment to the industry, sex product manufacturers, sex toy companies and other retailers are required to post information on their websites and social media about how they promote safe sex.
The guidelines for how the information should be displayed are also updated annually.
We want to encourage people to think about how their sexual health will be affected by this technology and to be proactive about getting safer sex products to their friends, family, and lovers,” he added.
