A survey from the sex toy creator Lovehoney found that three in four Americans own at least one dildo.
That means roughly 70 percent of Americans have a dildo in their homes (or cars, or cubicles, no judgement). While the majority (78 percent) are women, 64 percent of men that answered also own the phallic sex toy. Those 30 and older were more likely (71 percent 40+, 70 percent 30-40) than those 18-30 (68 percent), but not by much.
The sex toy company also found that dildos were HUGE in Iowa, the state’s the most likely to have dildo-owning dwellers. Based on the answers from 11,400 sex toy enthusiasts, they compiled the list of the top 15 states where dildos are more than likely to reside in drawers and other orifices.
The top 15 states where almost everyone has a dildo include:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
Apparently, the South is severely lacking in dildo purchases. Meanwhile, the Midwest and some coastal states are partaking in the penetration. Perhaps it’s because states like Texas didn’t even allow sex toys until 2003, and now, it’s illegal to own more than six dildos at one time. ILLEGAL! That’s just unfair all around.
Still, thanks to Lovehoney, we now have access to some prime statistics on the United States of dildos. We can only hope that there will be more to cum!
