D.VICE has registered as an essential service under NZ Covid 19 lock down

Posted by D.VICE Sexpert on

D.VICE has registered with MBIE as an essential business. This was done after careful consideration of the criteria and customer feedback.

This includes customer questions about

  • How to maintain remote sexual relationships and how vibrators, dildos,  lube and video contact can help manage intimacy from afar
  • Ways to promote intimacy and interest when you are cooped up with each other 24/7
  • Self pleasure for those who are in lock down alone, or with other non sexual housemates
  • Using orgasm and sex toys to reach orgasm as aids to manage stress, worry and sleeplessness
  • Ways to have quickies when the kids are distracted

At D.VICE we have always promoted consensual sex as a healthy and positive activity and a very enjoyable pass time. We see sex and sexual exploration us at least as essential as other essential services selling lipstick, deodorant, washing machines and Easter Eggs during the Covid 19 lock down in NZ. We hope that you will continue to support New Zealand business rather than purchase offshore where there may be no restrictions to online sales

All D.VICE orders will be shipped out by a single dedicated team member who will be packing orders using PPE gear and with contact-less courier pickup and delivery. To ensure we are respectful of courier demands, this is likely to be reduced to 1-2 pickup/deliveries weekly.

We have restricted access to some products such as novelties, edible products, lingerie and costumes and have tried to follow the government guidelines on products that are essential for maintaining health, life and work.

We have not blocked access to 'how to' sex videos and erotica books because there are so few alternatives to online pornography which are widely available to anyone who wants to access it we feel as we always have that there has to be some options and other ways to learn about and experience erotica.

We consider sex, sexuality, and sexual health essential for emotional and physical well being and important for maintaining intimacy and managing stress.
Sex toys can play a part in maintaining healthy relationships and climax a helpful way to manage stress and is a great sleep aid for those both in a relationship and on their own.

If you believe there are products on the D.VICE site that do not meet the essential services criteria, please let us know and we will review whether they should be temporarily blocked from the website

When lock down is over and we are able to resume normal business, products that have been made unavailable with be added back to the online store.
