It’s difficult to escape from pop culture. It’s everywhere! For instance, you might not be a huge fan of Twilight, The Big Bang Theory, or a Game of Thrones, but most probably you know at least a few facts about these shows. Or, you might not know Kim Kardashian’s profession, but certainly you know how this woman looks like.
Pop culture influences people more than they can imagine. It has an impact on their behavioural models, language and personal values. And most people want to remain a part of pop culture because its main purpose is to unite society.
These days, a lot of companies try to leverage pop culture to grow their own brands. In the light of present-day realities, it’s not enough to produce good-quality products. Every company should have an identity that would resonate with customers’ values and beliefs.
That’s why we can see Ikea selling out plates with ‘black hole’ after NASA revealed the first photo of it. And that’s why Samsung accepted ‘the Ice Bucket Challenge’ a few years ago. And that’s why Mcdonalds gives children toys from currently famous Disney cartoons.
There are so many examples of how brands reflect current events. For them, it’s the way to show that their employees are “ just like you.”
Sex toys industry just like others tries to do its best to follow popular cultural phenomena. Each year realistic dildos, vibrators and anal plugs transform in order to align with the needs of the customers. Let’s take a look at how sex toy manufacturers follow global trends:
Game of Dildos
Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV shows in history. The final episode of GoT drew 19.3. million viewers to the screens. So many people all over the world were so hooked on this HBO show.
