Working in Adult has been an amazing ride for me. People don’t realize that everyone (well at least 93% of the world) have sex daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly, however they still have it! I’ve been in adult the last 5 years and can tell you that I have come across all walks of life, from Business man, the crazy sexual aunty, the group of girls who all want to experiment together, the local gangsta who wants to be tough but still likes to be pegged on the weekend (thats why there really is such thing as ‘omerta’), to your local goody-two shoes trying to spice up his sex life. This industry is versatile and has no bounds (only if you’re into BDSM). Oh if these walls could talk, I’d be sitting next to JK Rowling on the NY Best Sellers book list. However, in all of my interactions with the normal, weird and outrageous, I have picked up some outstanding life lessons that I would like to go back and tell my 18 year old self.

Do not ever, ever judge a book by it’s cover:

If this path in life has taught me anything, it’s this vital lesson. All individuals are different in life, we all have our quirks, our shared interests and then our own sick fetishes, however you should never judge anyone. You should accept people for who they are, however do not tolerate rudeness or disrespect. You will come across all walks in life, remember that you might have different thoughts, ideologies and morals, however hold yourself to a high standard and treat everyone with the same love and respect.

Don’t give up:

you never know what is going to happen until the last minute: Being in the shops has taught me this more than anything in this world. Holding onto anxiety because you are nervous things won’t go your way, only leads to being and feeling unpleasant in the moment. I’ve had 12 hour shifts where we haven’t made any money and I am stressing, and then there is 20 minutes left until I finish and I give up on stressing and say well it’s too late, no one is going to come in… then I make $850 in 20 minutes flat. I leave work baffled. The minute you let go of all negativity and start thinking positive, it is crazy how the universe will work in your favour. Don’t hold onto negative thoughts or energy, this is crucial!


Don’t be a sleeze!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:

This has to be one of my favourites, but it didn’t go that high on the importance list. I see and hear it so many times with guys and girls who come into the store and are either sleezy to staff, other customers or in general. Before this I worked at a nightclub and would constantly see the losers at the bar trying to shoot their game. Take this as the ultimate tip of advice (guys and girls), it is the rule of Supply and Demand, the less attention you give, the more it is demand. The more attention you give, the less it is in demand. Simple economics. So how does this work for you? It’s simple, if you go out.. Girls like a guy who is living is life, and going about his business. If they see a guy who looks like his having fun with his friends group and is enjoying the moment, she will be attracted to him because he hasn’t made his world revolve around her. However, if you constantly chase her or try pester her at the bar, she isn’t going to want to give you the time of day. Live your life, have fun and the guys/girls will come.


Don’t go halves on your purchases:

This makes me cringe, big time! I always see a guy say it and it burns my soul. “Oh I’ll pay for this (normally the cheaper item) and she will pay for this”. Be the man and just pay for everything. It’s going to pay you back in sexual dividends the minute you get home.


 Don’t always go for the biggest toy:

Size does not always matter especially when you are buying sex toys. Take the time to talk to the person who is helping you buy the toy. All of our bodies are different, so don’t automatically assume that your girlfriend said this one is really good (the 12inch King Cock) so it will be great for you. Start small and work your way up from your comfort level.

It has been an interesting ride and a very informative one working in adult lifestyle shops for the last 5 years. Hopefully, give me another year and I can release that best seller!
