SEX shops are stocking up on postman-themed costumes due to people developing a kink for them during lockdown.
The lack of human contact with anyone except postal workers has resulted in large numbers of inquiries from both men and women about ‘postie gear’.
Soho sex shop manager Tom Logan said: “At first I thought it was weird, but after nine weeks in lockdown I suppose postmen were bound to become a sexual thing.
“I don’t understand the short-sleeved shirt, cargo pants and white ankle socks look myself, but we embrace all manner of perversions here and I’m not going to judge.
“I said I’d look into trying to source them, but it’s a challenge because ‘postman’ has never been on the list of essential worker costumes we stock. We’ve got plenty of sexy nurse outfits, but thanks to the virus they just terrify people.
“Luckily we’ve been able to get some Royal Mail anoraks and satchels. If you wear them with a thong and pretend to deliver an electricity bill you’re in for some sexy fun.”
