If there is a silver lining ? or should I say, a satin lining ? to the stock market crash, it?s more sex. Retail sales at New York-area stores like Bergdorf-Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue have plunged by 15.8 percent and 10.9 percent, respectively, but ? surprise, surprise ? business is booming at specialty sex shops.
What specialty sex shops could that be, you ask?
?Our sales were up 25 percent over last year the week of September 29th and up 12 percent last week,? says Claire Cavanah, a co-founder of Babeland, an erotic toy and lingerie business with three New York City boutiques. ?The same thing happened after 9/11, when our business also soared. I think we?re recession-proof because sex accessories are an inexpensive luxury.?
Stressed out? Unable to buy that new pair of boots you've had your eye on? Missing romantic meals out? Vibrators are the answer! They'll relieve your stress, take the edge off of that urge to shop and infuse your relationshp with romance.
