How to Get Retail-Ready for the Holidays

The holiday season is one of the busiest and most lucrative times of the year for businesses, both online and in-store. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, consumers are spending at record-breaking numbers.

The sex toy industry is no exception. Statistically, sales of pleasure products skyrocket during the North American winter months from Christmas to Valentine’s Day, as couples are engaging in more sexual activity during this time. The question is, are you prepared to take advantage of this increase and drive potential sales?

Add a Festive Flair

Get creative! Eye-catching seasonal displays and promotional pieces can draw shoppers in and let them know the store is carrying new products. Window-shopping is a great opportunity to connect with a passerby and bring in a customer who otherwise may not have stopped. Incorporating a holiday theme into your visuals will resonate with the buyer who is currently holiday shopping!

Prepare your store with visual merchandising, whether that is online or a brick-and-mortar shop. Ensure you have fully charged and functioning POS displays or testers for your core products. Unfortunately, theft is also at an all-time high during the holiday season, so take the necessary measures to ensure a security system is in place, including securing testers/displays.

Group Your Gifts

The placement of the products within your store is crucial. By putting like-minded products together, you can increase your sales and your customers’ experience. For example, placing a vibrator inside a lock box or toy chest along with a lube and toy cleaner can suggest to the customer a perfectly ready-made gift set.

Create a stocking-stuffer section by grouping items that are small, inexpensive, or novelties along with a “Stuff Your Stocking” sign, allowing your customers to put together a personalized stocking. Ideal stocking-stuffer items include rechargeable vibrating bullets, travel-sized massagers, vibrating rings, finger vibrators and more. Just be sure they have a travel lock so there’s no unexpected buzzing before the big day!

Prepare your store counter for impulse buys, those last-minute inexpensive items at the checkout when the customer has time to grab and go. These upsells can really add up!

Inventory is key during this peak season. Ensure you have a fully stocked store, in all categories. The bestsellers during this time tend to be gift sets, small stocking-stuffer items and pillow packs or foils of lubricant.

Gift Cards

While gift cards are usually placed at the counter and seen as a secondary purchase, gift card sales become a core earner during the holiday season. Studies by the National Retail Federation show that 63 percent of holiday shoppers will buy at least one gift card. Strategically place gift cards throughout your store and feature them in your window or promotional display. A Christmas tree decorated with gift cards is another fun display that is sure to draw attention!

Promotions and deals are another way of driving a transaction, as customers are scouring for sale items and trying to stay within their holiday budget. However, try not to overdo the discounts — you want to remain competitive, but if customers are purchasing then why lower your margins? Consider offering a coupon during holiday sales that can only be used in the New Year so your customers will be back for the Valentine’s Day rush.

All Wrapped Up

Prep your store staff for increased traffic. Be sure that your staff is trained or refreshed on how to load gift cards, that they are made aware of heightened theft, and that any new hires are well trained to handle the influx of customers.

Rather than price, convenience is one of the major aspects that determine buying decisions during the holidays. Customers appreciate a helpful, convenient experience during this hectic shopping period. Promising and following through on delivery dates can also drive online sales more than a discount! Brick-and-mortar shops have this advantage, as customers are able to take their parcel home ensuring they will have it Christmas morning.

One final touch that could heighten your customers’ experience is to consider offering a gift-wrapping service during this season. The last thing someone wants to worry about after shopping is having to wrap their gifts. Branded bows or packaging are not only convenient for the customer, but also create a memorable experience that will have customers returning to your store at a later date.

A Look at the Pleasure Products that Simulate Cunnilingus

When it comes to sex toys, there’s never a dearth of new product coming onto the market. Some are truly unique, some feature innovative technology, and others simply offer a fresh take on a classic bestseller. Some product releases, however, end up being genuinely surprising, not just for their design or function, but also because of how quickly consumers embrace and buy them. One example is the growing category of sex toys that cleverly simulate the sensation of cunnilingus, i.e. oral sex on a vulva.

In the past decade, this category has gone from semi-obscure with very few successful options to something booming, profitable and consistently head-turning. Manufacturers have steadily experimented with design features that look like tiny lapping tongues, rotating balls that swirl and swish around the clitoris, and air pulsation and suction — all meant to provide sensations that feel like the real thing. Now many products are equipped with more than two of these features, giving users more options and new ways to experience the kind of pleasure that previously was only possible from a human partner.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at the various toys designed to simulate cunnilingus: what they are, how they work, and how to help customers find the right one for them.

What Are Cunnilingus Simulators?

Short answer: anything mechanical meant to emulate the physical sensation of receiving cunnilingus. The longer answer: while cunnilingus simulators come in a wide variety of shapes and forms, they are typically handheld devices that employ vibration, suction, air pulsation, stroking, swirling, lapping — or a combination of these functions — to stimulate the clitoris, labia and vagina. Cunnilingus simulators can be used both for solo masturbation and couples play and, most recently, have caught the attention of social media platforms like TikTok where they are garnering some of the fastest and most effective organic marketing attention.

What Types of Cunnilingus Simulators Exist?

There are so many options when it comes to cunnilingus-simulating toys! For folks looking for something compact and efficient — i.e. fast orgasms — air-powered suction devices provide a “surround sound” type of stimulation that helps draw blood flow directly to the clitoris and clitoral hood, quickly increasing sensitivity and drawing out orgasm after orgasm with little effort from the user. However, some shoppers require something less intense than this, which is why we recommend retailers also stock the kinds of stimulators that surround the clitoris with a swirling or rotating motion. It’s important to remember that the direct and intense sensation of air suction or pulsation is not for every clitoris, so we recommend that retailers not only have additional options on shelves, but also are prepared to ask questions and get clear on what shoppers really want and need from their cunnilingus simulators.

Many shoppers know exactly what their clitorises and vulvas can take, which is why there are toys that deliver multiple kinds of stimulation with the option of enjoying them simultaneously. There’s even something for folks who want to enhance the act of giving cunnilingus and are looking for products they can use along with their own mouths and tongues, so don’t underestimate the selling power of tiny vibes that comfortably strap onto the tongue, taking cunnilingus to another level.

How Cunnilingus-Simulating Toys Can Up Shoppers’ Sex Game

One reason that cunnilingus toys are such a big hit is that they allow users to replicate the cunnilingus experience, and the mind-blowing orgasms it can deliver, without a partner. Another benefit of these toys is that they give couples entirely new ways to explore and experiment. Perhaps the biggest benefit of cunnilingus- simulating toys is that they provide a unique form of stimulation that simply wasn’t available before this genre of toys came along. They go beyond basic vibration, which isn’t every clitoris’ cup of tea. They don’t require penetration, though there are dual-stim versions that have an insertable portion! Plus, they incorporate motions and sensations that toys never could before.

All in all, cunnilingus-simulation toys can be a fantastic recommendation for shoppers looking for something unconventional or outside-the-box for their bedside.

Help Your Customers Take a Licking!

Because cunnilingus toys are still relatively new, retailers will probably encounter a good number of shoppers who are less familiar with the category or who come into stores feeling inspired by a specific product they saw on a favorite influencer’s feed. That means you have an opportunity to create a strong relationship by making smart and thoughtful recommendations! Offering some education about the options in this category — including alternatives to some of the lower-quality but highly viral products seen on social media — can not only promote a sale, but also build trust. For the shoppers who already know about the magic of cunnilingus simulators, you have a valuable opportunity to tell them about all the exciting new developments in this category that’s constantly growing.

The key steps to helping your customers navigate the cunnilingus toy landscape are relatively straightforward:

  1. Make sure you and your staff know what’s what. Stay on top of new products, and make sure you know what features they have and why they are beneficial. Some retailers have a policy that requires staff members to test all the toys they carry, and this is especially recommended with products that provide a newer kind of stimulation. That way, staff can rely on their own experience versus just reciting selling points, and they can provide genuine answers to shoppers’ questions.
  2. Be prepared to ask questions and help shoppers understand what products and features may be beneficial for them. Clitorises are not factory-made and stimulators are not one-size-fits-all, so having the opportunity to discuss needs and expectations will ensure that you make the right recommendation and, in turn, establish a loyal customer for life! Cunnilingus toys are changing the pleasure products landscape, and with a little know-how, you can keep shoppers in the know and on board with this sizzling hot trend.

Why Some Apparel Consumers Are Still Feeling Excluded

According to reports, 68 percent of female shoppers are a size 14 or above. Yet despite beautiful models such as Ashley Graham breaking through, mid-size models and plus-size models still don’t have much visibility in fashion.

Because of the disparity between mainstream fashion world images and actual women who buy the clothes, brands are still largely ignoring plus-size and mid-size bodies, despite body positivity campaigns

Brands Aren’t Using Mid-Size or True Plus-Size Models

I received a catalog last week from a very well known women’s apparel brand. I won’t throw them under the bus, but they sell the bohemian lifestyle, complete with every drapey silhouette you could imagine. The catalog actually belonged to my friend, who is a passionate fan of the brand. While she isn’t plus size, she represents the mid-size women’s market.

She is also terribly disappointed every single time she orders a garment from their website. Why? Because the models used to showcase the clothes are wearing size 2 and my friend is a size 12. To be clear, a size 2 dress on a little frame with no boobs does not translate the same as a size 12 dress on a curvy frame with 36DD boobs. Fashion brands are doing better than they have in previous years, but mid sizes — and especially plus sizes — are terribly underrepresented.

No, I’m not saying every fashion brand should be offering all sizes for everyone. As a part of the apparel industry, I understand it isn’t always practical to do so. Sizing, grading and quality associated with production costs can make it challenging. However, for fashion and lingerie brands that do offer large through 3X sizes to not represent those sizes in their advertising is a big failure.

Models Ashley Graham and Robin Lawley have gained popularity in recent years. These models are both a size 10, making them midsize. I think we all breathed a huge sigh of relief when these models started hitting the runway. We thought, “Finally, women that show what clothes will look like on me!”

But instead of bringing light and visibility to mid-size women, the industry and media treat them as plus-size models, despite their objections. As many plus-size women will testify, mid-size is not plus.

While mid-size has helped spark the conversation, mid and plus sizes still got lumped into one “curvy” category. This only showed how focused the fashion world is on super-slim models, by labeling anyone else that doesn’t fit that mold as simply “curvy.”

Plus-size models and influencers such as Kat Stroud, Tess Holliday and Lauren Nicole have paved the way for a lot of plus-size women to feel represented in the fashion world. Nevertheless, plus-size consumers agree that there still needs to be even more representation and more relatability in the fashion industry, in every sector, including lingerie.

“As a plus-size woman, I can assure you that we are buying lingerie. And part of the problem has been that we are in no way represented in the scheme of things. It’s hard to find an actual image of a person of size representing or modeling for these brands — and when you consider that 80 percent of the population is over a size 12, well, that seems not only irresponsible, but talk about missing out on those dollars,” says plus-size model and author Kat Stroud.

Clothes Aren’t Being Designed to Fit Plus-Size Bodies

Falling in love with a garment online, only to have to return it when it arrives, can leave a woman feeling pretty self-conscious. Sending back a garment you had high hopes for not only makes a person feel bad about the way they look, but it can also create brand distrust.

For a lot of women, the struggle with body positivity is real. When fashion brands or even plus-size influencers misrepresent a size audience, they are committing brand loyalty suicide.

It’s possible that mid-size and plus-size women are being ignored because it simply takes more time and money to manufacture garments that fit different bodies. The typical designer will create a sample pattern fit for a size 2 or 4, and that sample can then be used for multiple sizes.

However, using those samples for sizes upwards of 10 and 12 will sometimes distort the fit. The designers would need to invest in new patterns and resources to optimally create the same garments for different sizes. Many designers choose not to make the extra effort.

This explains why in-betweeners in the size 14 category feel they are too large for industry-standard size 14s, but are too small for plus-size 14s. The clothes are made with completely different sample patterns. And for women in the 18-and-up sizes, there isn’t much to choose from — like, at all.

Shopping can be especially challenging for women looking for plus-size lingerie. In the media, most plus-size women are not depicted as sexual beings. Often, they’re portrayed as uncomfortable or serve as comedic relief. But in real life, plus-size women can be as sexual and as comfortable with themselves as anyone. This disparity is hurting women and the fashion industry.

“Women of all shapes and sizes are sexual beings. Feeling and looking sexy is not something that is reserved only for specific body types, and representation matters,” says Ruby Roxx, a plus-size model and influencer. “When women (or humans in general) see someone who looks like them, in lingerie or any form of media, we are reminded that we are normal humans, worthy and deserving of having those feelings and experiences too. We feel connected and inspired to live our lives unapologetically, and we look and feel incredible doing it. All body types, sizes, shapes, genders, races, backgrounds, and abilities are worthy of representation and feeling sexy, powerful and included.”

I imagine the frustration plus-size women must be feeling as they flip through magazines, website catalogs, or get served ads featuring women who aren’t even their sizes trying to sell them a garment. Even brands that claim to be plus-size and use plus-size models are still missing the mark. Many plus-size brands carry sizes ranging from 14/16 through 28 and 40, yet never use a size 28 or 40 model in their catalogs or social media creatives.

Plus-size women who feel unseen by retailers have a godsend in the form of influencers such as Lizzo, Meaghan O’Connor, Madeline Jones and Tabria Majors. Fashion influencers who share their style picks on social media help women feel represented, something many retailers are failing at. Supporting Body-Positive Brands Supports Body Positivity

“We want to see bodies like ours being represented because that’s reality; we’re here and not going anywhere. And moving forward it’s important to showcase that diversity because those are the people spending the money and buying the products,” says Kat Stroud.

As long as women keep shopping at retailers that don’t cater to them, the industry isn’t going to change. If women want to see more plus-size fashion, they should support stores and outlets that acknowledge them as valuable customers.
