I use to be a Pleasure Party Consultant I didn't do so well with it so not sure if I would do it again unless it was for an online retailer or an actual sexshop

I would love it. I'm not shy at all when it comes to talking about sex or toys. I've applied to work at adult stores in the past, but nothing ever came of it.

I think there is nothing to be ashamed of. it would be a fun adventure i think, and if anyone judged me about it then they are not in my life for the right reasons. Everyone has different opinions and i respect that but i wouldnt allow others to stop me from doing something that would make me happy.

If you guys like sex shop/ pleasure related things you should check out the Sex Nerd Sandra podcast by Nerdist. (please note that I am in no way trying to promote this show for anything other than that it is really fun and informative and I love it as a fan)link

It totally depends on if there's a future. While it would be fun to get a summer job at one, I would only like to get a job in the actual industry if I could make a good living doing it.

I worked for a company that sold toys about 10 years ago. That particular job had fun aspects, but I moved on when I didn't move up.

Sure. Not a dream, but it'd be neat.

I wouldn't say a dream job, but it'd be fun! I wouldn't use it for my main job, just a side.

no, because it is not a job I am interested in doing.

Yes! I know a TON about the sex toy industry and feel I would be really good at working in it in some capacity.

Yes -- I've actually applied to a sex shop recently. Working as a designer or technician would be awesome for long-term goals.

I would love to work in the research and development sector.

I have been to fun factory's website to check for vacancies, but at that time there were none.

I would love that. It would be my dream job.

On the one hand, that would be crazy amounts of fun, plus I'm pretty creative which would come in handy, but on the other hand, half my family would probably disown me. There's only like, 3 people in my family that even approve of sex toys at all!

One of my dream jobs, indeed! Absolutely.

I think it would be fun, especially if I was involved in toy creation, but I don't think I would be fulfilled with it as a career. I have no problem with it being known & I am very comfortable talking to people about anything, so those aren't obstacles. I would want a secure, well paying position with room for advancement and that is intellectually challenging & satisfying.

I wouldn't be embarrassed! I'd be proud to make a living promoting a sex-positive lifestyle where communication, pleasure, and fun sex toys are all #1!
