"Demand is huge because most people prefer the privacy of shopping for sex toys online,” Li Chengze, another young entrepreneur, said. Starting her career as a journalist, Li eventually opened her own online store, Xiao Ye, after she realized the sex-toy market’s profitability while working in the advertising industry for a year. Li, 26, launched her store only last October, but says she is already receiving hundreds of orders every month.
