Job losses and financial strife brought on by the global credit crunch have seen a 250 per cent rise in national sales of herbal Viagra over the last two weeks. But the biggest increase has taken place in London as city slickers look to beat their woes by spicing up their sex life. Sales in the capital have rocketed by 400 per cent over the past fortnight – according to adult store Private Shops – the biggest rise in more than a decade. Private Shops spokeswoman Sally Barker said: ”The sales are incredible. We haven't experienced anything like this since the 90s. ”With all the uncertainty over jobs, mortgages and savings, men are clearly turning to sex to have some fun. ”Our London outlets have seen the biggest sales spike. We've had to bring in extra supplies to cope. Sales are up 420 per cent across the capital. Sally Barker added: ”Turn over of fantasy items has increased 150 per cent on average over the past month nationally with London seeing the biggest rise. ”French maid and fireman outfits, nurses uniforms, rubber and leather - they are all flying out of the stores.
"With all the uncertainty and job losses in the City, men are snapping the stuff up.”
Women should be wishing for a market crash everyday, as it seems its driving men wild.
