Fanbois love sex toys: Official

iPad users whip Windows lusers

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

UK smut accessorymonger LoveHoney (NSFW) has confirmed what the fanbois out there knew all along: when they're not polishing their iPads, worshippers at the altar of Jobs are likely to be lovingly fondling other toys, with explosive results.

LoveHoney deployed Google Analytics to demonstrate that "iPad users have the highest average spend on sex toys, closely followed by iPhone users, then Mac users".

The site explains: "A month after the launch of Apple’s latest device, statistics show that iPad users spend an average of £59.06 per order - nearly double the amount that Windows users spend."

LoveHoney director Richard Longhurst opined: “Apple users might spend more than Windows users because they’re sexually more confident and are more adventurous in the bedroom."

There is, of course, a more likely explanation, given that Google Analytics revealingly indicate that 93 per cent of fanbois have never seen a member of the opposite sex naked. We reckon they're simply splashing their cash on gadgets like the TENGA Black Flip Hole Masturbator (NSFW), thereby saving themselves the embarrassment of having to ask Steve Jobs exactly how to hold their devices to achieve satisfaction. ®

Bootnote

LoveHoney has rather unforgiveably failed to explain just where Linux users rank in the sex toy league table. I'm sure you lot can set us straight on that.
