Boredom and isolation are the fuels for the massive demand

Ryan is currently running Aussie adult retailer Southern Treasures and he thinks the fuel for the company’s boosted sales is a mixture of boredom and isolation. People have less opportunity to socialize as of now due to the restrictions in place and they’re experiencing a bit of frustration. The problem of being single or obtaining a partner can be solved completely by owning a doll. It’s just something that brings a little comfort.
