In the midst of the biting economic crisis facing many Nigerians, forcing many to go as far as committing suicide, a sub-sector of the Nigerian economy is booming bringing smile to the faces of people lacking S3xual fulfilment – married and singles alike. This is the S3x toy market.

In a society where people can hardly speak openly about S3xual problems, Saturday Punch’s investigation shows that some vendors sell S3x toys worth millions of naira every month.

A S3x therapist and prominent S3x toy vendor, Mrs. Iheoma Obibi, explained that contemporary Nigerians are gradually coming out of some sort of “S3xual darkness” and this is creating a boom in the market with an attendant influx of fake S3x toys.

For the last six and half years, Kemi Fawole, a certified S3x therapist, has been dealing in adult products including S3x toys.

She told Saturday Punch that she sells at least N7m worth of S3x toys yearly. It is about the same for actress-turned S3x toy vendor, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, who told one of Punch’s correspondents, “I cannot estimate how much of S3x toys I sell in a year but I know that in about three to six months, I rake in more than N3m.”

Yet, these two are just a small fraction of the numerous S3x toy vendors who now trade in the country.

Every now and then, a new vendor like Japhet Okoromadu enters the market and soon realises how supply of S3x toys pales in comparison to the deluge of demands by Nigerians.

One of Punch’s correspondents met Japhet Okoromadu, who has just started selling S3x toys online about a year ago.

He said, “I sell pen-is enlargement pumps and Vag!nal tightening cream as well. Right now, the demand I get for S3x toys is more than my available stocks,” he said.

“I get male customers as much as female. Some ladies even chat with men, complaining bitterly how they are suffering in silence, and how their husbands cannot satisfy them. Eighty five per cent of complaints about S3x that I get from clients is about not being satisfied by spouses. Unfortunately, most of the women cannot voice out their concern to their partners.” It was learnt that some of these adult products, sell for between N5,000 and N25,000 while premium brands sell for higher.

Fawole also said some of her vibrators are as cheap as N5,000 while some are as high as N150,000. She said the common vibrators are between N5,000 and N20,000.

In Ibidapo-Obe’s store at Magodo, in Lagos, the cheapest S3x toy in her store sells for about N30,000 while the most expensive is about N200,000.

Judging by the volume of sales that many of the S3x toy vendors Punch’s correspondents spoke with make annually, there is no doubt that the industry runs into several millions.
