In spite of sex shops not (legally) existing in Cuba, sex toys are being more frequently used and purchased in recent years.
Orlando has a very unique photo album on his cellphone. The folder contains images of vibrators, penis extenders, artificial vaginas, harnesses, vibrating rings, condoms and lubricants. He offers these sex toys to his classmates at the Central University in Santa Clara every day. Some turn red when they see the photos, while others find it normal.
“Years ago, my sister brought me a dildo (vibrator) from Spain, and other toys, but I never used them. I decided to sell them and they went like hot cakes.” This is how Orlando describes the beginning of his “business”.
