So I was speaking to my friends the other day and they said they were surprised that Wish stopped selling dildos. I couldn’t believe it either. Why on earth did they stop? I’ve been trying to figure it out since then but have had no luck.
I started scouring the internet for some answers. I hit up a lot of forums, did a ton of research and read some old news articles about the topic. Honestly, it felt like I was getting nowhere. Everywhere I looked said the same thing – Wish just decided to stop selling dildos without giving a reason.
It’s strange because dildos have become so popular in recent years and Wish was seemingly a big supporter of the industry. They sold not just dildos, but a range of other sex toys as well. So it was a real head-scratcher as to why they decided to step away from that.
I decided to look into the issue a little more. After doing some digging, I found out that Wish was getting a lot of flak from customers and commentators for selling what many deemed to be inappropriate items. Some people were even calling it immoral and saying the company should be ashamed.
I think that’s why Wish pulled the plug. It must have been too much pressure for them to take. I guess the last thing they wanted to do was insult their customer base by continuing to sell the items. It’s a shame, really, because Wish was giving people a safer and more private way to buy dildos.
But that’s how it goes, I suppose. Companies can’t always have it their way. Still, I can’t help but wondering what might have happened if they had the courage to keep selling dildos.
Truth be told, I don’t really know how I feel about this. On one hand, it’s sad to see such a big and influential company bow out of an entire market. On the other, I understand that some fans might have felt uncomfortable with the items being sold.
It’s a tough spot to be in and no matter which way I look at it, I’m finding it hard to give a definite opinion on why Wish stopped selling dildos. In that regard, I guess all we can do is speculate, but it might help us understand the company a little better if we can figure out their intentions with the whole thing.
