Want to Be a Sex Toy Tester?

First off, the chances of making this a high paying career are remote. Also, it is work. There may be times where you simply don’t feel like pleasuring yourself, but finishing the job and being a professional are essentials for success.

If you are amenable to a little hard work and a lot of fun, here are some tips to becoming a sex toy tester.

Create a sex blog

Create a sex blog and generate a following. When you achieve these goals, contact the sellers/manufacturers of your choice and refer them your website. Many erotic shops will be happy to provide test samples of new products for you to review. They generate buzz about the sex toy by submitting them to sex blog owners and you generate a list of potential customers for their product. The best news of all, you get to keep your sexual aid.

Look in classifieds, forums, social sites and search engines

Sex toy companies are always looking for people to test the myriad of gadgets they receive from toy manufactures to separate the magnificent from the mundane. The larger the sample size the more accurate the overall review of the product. An accurate review of a great product garners a very happy customer base and more repeat business. These are the reasons why many toy sellers actively recruit for volunteers over the Internet. Many companies will place ads in classifieds (like craigslist) or make calls for volunteers through their websites, forums and social websites.

Performing a simple search will net you thousands of hits. Many links will be outdated, so it’s a good idea to narrow your search to the current year.

Apply for a job at a sex toy company

Keep an eye out for open positions. Many companies have their employees test new products. Consider it a perk. Obviously you will need marketable nonsexual skills to consider this option.

Ask

Show initiative. Contact sex toy companies and convince them that they would benefit from your services. Do some research regarding sex toys and the sex toy industry. Make sound, logical arguments about the benefits of sex toy testing and how it could benefit their company and back those arguments with numbers if possible. Again, a professional approach goes a long way.

Possible health issues

Most professions don’t come without a certain set of dangers. Injuries can occur when performing even the most mundane job (repetitive stress injury anyone?), and sex aid testing is no different. So… what are the potential issues?

Possible toxicity
Phthalates, which are banned in children’s toys, can make up for more than 50% of some of the most popular sex toys. Phthalates are used to soften plastic and make it more malleable and are some of the most commonly used substances in manufacturing. In large doses, Phthalates are considered carcinogenic and have caused birth defects in mice.

Possibility of injury
Yes, you can hurt yourself. Over stimulating your clitoris can lead to lead to a condition called “vibratory strain injury” which is a form of repetitive stress injury. Male sex aids that constrict blood flow (i.e. penis rings) can cause “penile strangulation”. It’s also smart to be mindful of the size of the device and where you’re sticking it. Very large sex toys can tear tissue and membrane in the vagina and anus. Smaller toys, like vibrating eggs can get “lost”, especially in the anus. When that occurs, it will most likely need to be retrieved by the emergency room doctor.
Another issue, the items can break and lodge in an orifice while in use. An issue that will always garner a poor review.

The good news? There is a (very) high satisfaction rate among testers.

The War On The War On Carbs

For those that love carbs, you’ve been taking a beating lately. Don’t eat carbs, they make you gain weight say the “experts”. Lately, there has been a complete war on carbs and as someone who loves their carbs… it’s time to start a war on the “war on carbs”

Carbs are essential, there’s just no getting around it. Whether your goal is to lose weight or increase sport performance, you’ll just do yourself a disservice if you abandon our friend the carb. For all high intensity, short duration activities, muscle glycogen is the source of energy and muscle glycogen comes from… carbs. Even endurance activities of moderate intensity use glycogen as 50% of your energy needs. In fact, the one limiting factor on your sport performance will be the lack of availability of carbohydrates. Even during low intensity exercise when your body uses a higher percentage of fat as its fuel source, it takes a good supply of carbohydrates to fuel that process. Ever play a sport or involve yourself in a high intensity workout program and you hit the proverbial “wall”… that’s because your body has a lowered supply of glycogen EVEN THOUGH your body has a great supply of fat. Want to perform better… eat your carbs.

What if you want to lose weight; surely you need to decrease your carb intake. After-all, carbs MAKE you fat right? Carbohydrates provide you with variety, necessary nutrients and volume to your diet.

Recommended ranges for carb intake is between 45-65% of your total intake. Weight loss occurs when there is a calorie deficit and not a particular macronutrient profile.

Weight loss occurring on low-carb diets is generally attributed to 2 things… a lower overall calorie intake and loss of body mass. Ever start a diet that restricts your carb intake and seen great results in the beginning weeks? Lower carbs mean lower muscle glycogen stores. For every gram of glucose lost through glycogen you also lose 2.7 grams of water with it. This loss of glycogen combined with water loss is the contributing factor in the initial big losses seen.

Some studies you will read (actually the newspaper headlines you will read… very few read the actual studies) will tell you that we are gaining weight faster than ever even though our fat intake is down. This is partially true. The PERCENTAGE of fat intake in our total diet is down but the actual grams of fat consumed is unchanged all while the total calories consumed in our diets has increased. As well, most studies rely on self-reporting and people generally report eating less than they actually do.

Consider in the 1900’s the typical diet had a higher intake of carbohydrates and a lower intake from fat. Even though our dreaded enemy the carb was consumed at a greater rate, we have only seen the rise of weight issues in the past few decades. In short, the increase in the rise of weight gain we see as a society is largely due to increased calorie and decreased activity.

So, here’s what is so good about carbs:

1. They provide nutrients that you can’t get from fat or protein
2. Adds bulk to your diet
3. Stabilizes blood sugar levels
4. An adequate supply of carbs in your diet spares your body from turning to protein as an energy source meaning that protein can do its job.
5. It’s the body’s preferred energy source
6. Your brain only uses carbs as its energy source
7. You need carbs in order to fuel the process of fat burning

All this doesn’t mean run out for a dozen donuts. Select good choices of veggies, fruit, whole grains… eat ’em up… yum!

Losing weight doesn’t have to be so complicated. Like they say, there is more than one way to skin a cat and there is more than one way to lose weight. Don’t let your fitness plan be swayed daily by the changing tides of news headlines.
