What are Canadians doing without the NHL? Buying sex toys and lingerie, according to the Toronto Sun:

"When Oilers fans, mostly guys, have to break their routine of seeing every game, they have more time," Morker said. "And there's nothing better than spending it with your spouse or girlfriend."

Morker said Hush's main clientele is couples looking to "expand their horizons" and he's seen a 15% jump in the sales of their sex toys, lingerie, games and sexual guides, like The Kama Sutra, since October.

Hal Roseberg, owner of Tease Adult Boutique in Edmonton, said he saw a similar leap in business this year, which he usually attributes to an influx of cold weather.

"I suppose that's one of the other reasons it's as busy as it is, there's no hockey," Roseberg said.

Is this what Americans have to look forward to if the NFL ever locks out? [Sun via Pour Me Coffee]
