After months of anticipation and teasing, the yearly shopping extravaganza that is Black Friday is almost here.
And, with another rather difficult year in our rearview, it comes as no surprise that sales of sex toys and other adult products in the category have continued to do well and are top of the shopping list for bargain-hunting Brits.
And why not? Black Friday may offer an incredible opportunity to bag those big ticket items that would otherwise be out of financial reach (think TVs, vacuums and mattresses), but it’s also an irresistible chance to treat yourself and/or your S.O to a bit of fun.
Why not enjoy the double dip thrill of bagging a pleasure-giving gadget at a sizeable deep discount? The upcoming sale extravaganza has it all tied up, from bondage accessories to devilish lingerie and toys for him and her.
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year?
Although the event takes place on the fourth Friday of November - this year that’s Nov 26 - in truth, the deals and offers kick off from much earlier as brands launch pre-sales.
You can pick up everything from lingerie to sex toys and accessories in the sale, which normally last until the following Monday, aka Cyber Monday, which is Nov 29.
