Sex doll sales have surged since quarantine began, to the extent that some companies are looking to hiring more employees to keep up with demand.

A Florida-based Sex Doll Genie reported a 51.6% increase in sales during February and March from single men with a 33.2% year-on-year growth in orders placed by couples in April.

“We have lots of products in stock but we can’t work fast enough to keep up with demand,” the company’s co-founder, Janet Stevenson, told the outlet. “We are hiring as quickly as we can and have created several new roles in fulfillment management and customer support in both the US and Europe.”

Stevenson said the company — which sells realistic-looking made-to-order dolls — has gotten “hundreds” more inquiries than usual in the past two months.

UK-based sex toy manufacturer CMG Leisure has also suddenly found themselves in dire need of employees amid spike in sex doll sales during the pandemic, Forbes reported.

“What’s interesting about this massive increase in demand is that we are also seeing a changing demographic which is very positive for the sex doll industry and speaks to changing attitudes at home,” Stevenson told Forbes.

“What we are seeing now is doll use is going mainstream with men and women both enthusiastic about bringing a doll into their bedroom.”

Sex Doll Genie’s other co-founder, Stevenson’s husband, Amit, said couples are also fueling demand.

“We are seeing the sex doll industry go through a revolution during the COVID-19 pandemic with a huge increase in orders from both couples and male and single females,” he told the UK’s Daily Star.

The company said they are planning to introduce sex robots that “breathe” and come complete with a heartbeat.

“I haven’t seen them used on a person yet, they are still in production, but we are getting to the point where we can call them a sex robot, but technically they are sex dolls as well,” Amit told the publication.
