Leading British sexologist Tracey Cox, the author of numerous books, named the main sex trends of 2020 and shared predictions for 2021. Her words are quoted by the Daily Mail.
According to Cox, 2021 will be the year of sexual experimentation. According to a study by a British sex toy retailer, in 2020, 52 percent of couples surveyed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and self-isolation have tried something new in sex: role-playing, car sex and the embodiment of partner's erotic fantasies. 71 percent of them said they will continue to experiment after the end of the pandemic.
Representatives of one of the sex dating sites noted that in 2020 an unusually large number of users began to identify themselves as bisexual. They assume that the number of people open to new sexual experiences will only grow in the next year.
The sexologist claims that people began to search more often in search engines for information about BDSM. In 2020, sales of strap-ons have grown by 200 percent. Ten percent of the 1,000 British women surveyed said they used them in sex with male partners, another ten percent admitted that they would like to try.
Cox said that in 2021, people will become even more open to long-distance relationships: due to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, meeting in person is becoming more difficult. According to one of the dating apps, half of the users are ready to look for a partner "anywhere", before the majority preferred to set strict geographic boundaries. 66 percent of those surveyed said talking with a partner became much more important to them than before. 70 percent of respondents are ready for a virtual date, and 33 percent are open to long-term long-distance relationships.
In 2021, the trend for sex toys will continue: a third of respondents bought new devices in 2020. At the same time, sales of toys for couples have grown unprecedentedly in the past year. Cox said the category is usually much less in demand.
The sexologist noted that the pandemic made people remember about their former partners. One in five respondents admitted that he wrote or called them, a quarter of the respondents said that they themselves contacted them. The overwhelming majority supported the dialogue. In most cases, people just wanted to know if their ex was doing well.
Cox emphasized that in 2020, many began to practice mindfulness during sex: that is, enjoying the moment, and not worrying about their appearance, skills or problems reaching orgasm.
Earlier, sexologist Emily Morse told why women fake orgasm. According to her, they often do this to please the male ego and avoid embarrassing situations.
