We would like to invite you along on a journey down the rabbit-hole to find out the ins and out of who's really buying sex toys, plus the averages and stats of what (and how much) they're buying!
Who better to take a look at and analyze the sheer volume of Lovehoney sales data but the very talented Ideas Detective himself, Jon Millward - the man who brought us: Deep Inside: A Study Of 10,000 Porn Stars And Their Careers and Dirty Words: A Probing Analysis of 5000 Call Girl Reviews.
Jon studied 1 million Lovehoney orders, minus any personal distinguishing details like last name, address or zip codes. He then added up all the liters and meters and created a gorgeous in-depth infographic to delight our imaginations and boggle our minds.
Read on for the top revelations from his study, or read the full (53 page!) report over on Jon's blog.

Lovehoney arrived in Australia just over a year ago, right around that same time the staff at Lovehoney HQ were being followed around by a documentary camera crew!
The result is Frisky Business - a funny and real look at what it's like working at Lovehoney.
Now you too can take a look behind the scenes at the UK's biggest sex toy retailer starting Friday, August 29 in Australia.
Frisky Business goes behind the scenes at Lovehoney’s inner workings, showcasing our hard working pickers, packers, buyers, customer care staff, the content team, the returns department and founders as well.
Recently listed on-demand with Netflix in the USA, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. The show was also a big hit when it first aired in the UK earlier this year - doubling its audience during the six-week run.
This Friday, August 29th at 9:20pm on SBS2! Watch the first of 6 - 1 hour episodes of Frisky Business.
You may or may not have noticed that on Lovehoney's contact page, among the reasons for contacting us including "Question about a product" and "Where's my order?", there's one option you can select that says: "I want to say something nice".
Even if you did notice, you may not know what clicking that heading does. Well, when you decide to say something nice, your email gets forwarded to the entire company - and it never fails to make the Lovehoney staff smile when positive customer feedback appears in our email inboxes.
Although we receive nice thoughts from all over the world, lately a lot of this feedback has been coming from the states, from folks who have seen what life is like at Lovehoney HQ from watching Frisky Business on Netflix.
We love hearing from you, so we decided to share some of the most recent happy feedback we've received:
