Vibrators in Gujarat to massage oil in Delhi: A map that shows what Indians' pick to enhance sex lives

For a country that had sex-related products unavailable for the longest time, India's consumers seem to have taken very well to the availability of products through online marketplaces and pretty much every online retailer seems to have a sexual wellness category to cater to the demand.

From glitter gels to couple vibrators, if a survey by adult products seller ThatsPersonal.com is to be believed, Indians are openly embracing a range of products to enhance their experience between the sheets.
