Durex condoms, KY lubricants and Veet hair removal products saw sales shoot up by nearly a fifth towards the end of last year, according to hygiene giant Reckitt.

Sales of its sex products also rose impressively in China, the US and India.

Sexpert Lacey Haynes said: “Now that we’re on top of Covid, people can finally get out there and get on top of each other again.

It’s no wonder Reckitt has experienced a rise in sales of all their intimate products.

It’s an exciting time where people feel lit up again and ready to hook up.

“Lockdown was a time where sex in long-term relationships took a nosedive and where hooking up was off the cards. People are now experiencing a freedom they’ve been craving for two years.”

The end of lockdown also had an effect on the non-sexy products made by the firm, based in Slough, Berkshire.

An increase in germ ­mingling triggered a rise in cold and flu treatments such as Strepsils and Lemsip.

But Dettol suffered a sales slide compared with 2020, when more Brits than ever were deep-cleaning their homes amid the pandemic.
