ATLANTA, Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Liberator, Inc. (OTCBB/OTCQB: LUVU), a dynamic high-growth and vertically integrated company capitalizing on the emerging sexual wellness revolution through the worldwide marketing of the Liberator® brand, today announces the availability of a white paper on the growing market for sexual health and wellness products, by market analyst Arthur Goldgaber of SmallcapInsights.com.
Entitled "Growing Acceptance and Appeal of Sexual Wellness Category Boosts Sales," the white paper describes how numerous major health and wellness retailers, pharmacies and online stores have begun embracing the movement, especially in the last two to three years.
The white paper states, "From 2003 to 2008, executives at big chains like CVS stated that they had more than quadrupled the shelf space devoted to sex products. With greater and more prominent retail space for sexual wellness products, sales for the category rose 31% from 2007 to 2009, according to research firm Mintel."
The report went on to state, "Even before selling the sexual wellness items at their brick-and-mortar stores, drugstores offered many of these products online for a decade or more. In fact, online sales of sexual wellness products on mainstream e-commerce sites continue to be robust. Well-known brand names appear in the top three positions when performing a Google search for "sexual wellness," including Amazon.com, Walgreens.com and Overstock.com. Nevertheless, many experts believe the sexual wellness category is in the early stages of consumer awareness and that its explosive growth will continue to gain consumer acceptance."
The report also highlights Liberator, Inc. and its unique line of Liberator® branded products as an example of a fast-growing company that has been at the forefront of the growing mainstream acceptance of sexual wellness products, especially among major publications like Men's Journal, Rolling Stone and Redbook, where the company's magazine ads regularly receive over 10 million monthly views.
