The global sex toy industry generates multi million dollar profits each year with increasing sales via the internet and the existing trade through sex shops. China now produces 70% of all sex toys sold worldwide. Products range from dildos and vibrators to bondage equipment and blow up dolls. Each type of product has dozens of variations and the Chinese factories can customs design products to make them unique for certain clients.
Dildos have been around for thousands of years; the range of colours, shapes and designs available is staggering, the more recent variant of dildos are vibrators which contain battery run motors to cause the vibration and added stimulation. Many factories in China solely produce sex toys. The components are made on site or shipped in and assembled, tested and packaged ready for distribution.
Once a year an 'Ault Expo' is held in Shanghai where the manufactures can show off their latest products to potential buyers from around the world.
