Ready For More Sex: Condom Sales Are Shooting Up As Coronavirus Restrictions Roll Back



With parts of the world slowly but surely easing physical distance guidelines, it seems that a lot more people are getting frisky at home.

Condom manufacturer Durex has shared that their sales have risen since lockdown restrictions loosened—no pun intended. They reported a “double-digit” hike for the first quarter of 2021 as compared to numbers this time last year.

“Looser ‘stay at home’ restrictions in China, compared to the first quarter of 2020, have for example, helped drive strong growth in our sexual wellbeing category,” Durex said in a statement.

Durex’s parent company, Reckitt Benckiser, also reported that numbers are expected to grow in the coming months as more countries like the US and England are following through with their COVID-19 response plans.

“Our Sexual Wellbeing segment improved in the second half of the year as social distancing restrictions related to COVID-19 eased,” Reckitt CEO Laxman Narasimhan share via their annual report.

Condom sales hit a low last year from what Laxman calls a “manifestation of anxiety” brought by the pandemic.

This is definitely the case in Kenya with President Uhuru having lifted the lockdown on Saturday and eased restrictions. Kenyans bring Kenyans will be hitting the roads literally.
