Cara Houiellebecq, Professional Sex Toy Tester, Has A Better Job Than You

Are You Jealous?

Meet Cara Houiellebecq, a 33-year-old British mother of two who has a job that even makes us Frisky writers jealous: she’s a professional sex toy tester. She got into the biz via her friend, a rep for Ann Summers (a British lingerie and sex toy company), and began trying out toys for a blog. Now, companies like Lelo send her new toys every day to test and write about. She puts our goodie drawers to shame, amassing a collection of over 2,000 toys. According to Page Six, Houiellebecq earns a more-than-respectable $27,000 from the part-time gig — but what’s money when the job brings her 15 orgasms a week? [Page Six; Daily Mail UK]

Life After Dating: When Your Partner Is Unemployed

life after dating unemployed

Growing up, my parents were able to provide a stable middle-class upbringing for me, my three sisters and my brother. I can understand now how fortunate we were not to worry about hunger, housing, or medical bills. Although my Mom made a point to show us how privileged we were  — I’m from Fairfield County, Connecticut, where the “wealth gap” between rich and poor is top in the nation — I lived securely inside a wealthy suburban bubble in the booming ’90s. As I graduated from high school, went to college and began my working life, I still managed to have financial security, even when the economy tanked in 2008. Some friends, recent college graduates like myself, lost their jobs or just plain could not get hired. But me, I still got to stay inside a safe little bubble.

Then I did something that probably didn’t make sense to some people, especially those from the background that I come from: I married someone who was unemployed Keep reading »

I was on my way to my Web Marketing class when a girl who looked about my age stopped me to ask me a very strange, life-changing question. She asked me if I watch porn. “Huh?” As a girl, I was taken aback by such a question, but her approach was so natural that I felt compelled to answer honestly: “Yes.”

“Great, would you like to come in for a focus group on women’s porn consumption and masturbation habits?” she asked.

“Umm…”

“It pays 50 bucks and food will be provided,” she continued.

“Oh. OK. Sure, I’ll be there.”

A few months after my participation in that focus group, while my classmates and I were all struggling to find our summer internships, I thought back on the experience and how enjoyable it had been. I decided I had nothing to lose by sending in my application to a porn site. Two months later, I started my internship at Sex.com. I had some expectations, but like most unfounded presumptions, the reality was entirely different. Keep reading »
