Confessions of A Sex Shop Sales Girl

August 7, 2008

Arianne Cohen wrote a downright splendid article (title above) for MarieClaire.com a couple of years ago (according to the comments). So this isn’t the newest link, but it’s standing the test of time.

My favorite quote comes near the end, although all of it is well done with an entertainingly honest style:

Understand, we were not just selling motorized sticks. We were also teaching women how to never be submissive. A woman with a well-stocked toy drawer isn’t dependent on anyone and is unlikely to hurl herself at a lowlife just for nooky. Though I began my job on a lark, it became clear that being a sex-shop salesgirl is, in some way, a curiously feminist calling.

Male commenters are finding it full of useful suggestions for better loving, too. Bonus!
