How To Make $39,000 By Testing Sex Toys At Home

make money testing sex toysIt's a work-from-home job that some people would love. Every week, a box full of the latest sex toy technology lands on your doorstep. You try the toys, rate them, and are compensated over $39,000 a year.

This is the workaday of 24-year-old Nat Garvey, reports The Sun, a British woman who tests out all the sex toys for Passion, a retailer of adult toys, lingerie, and according to its website, "fetish equipment." Garvey purportedly has personally sampled over 1,000 of the toys that the store has considered stocking, and sends out her reviews in weekly reports.

Garvey says that she originally saw the job posted in an online ad, and applied mostly as a joke. It's not entirely clear what the qualifications are, or how she conveyed her discerning taste for pleasure machines on her resume, but Garvey got the job. For her trouble, she makes 25,000 pounds ($39,300) a year.

"Rather than being surrounded by office supplies and computers all day, I have piles of kinky toys to play with," she told The Sun. "I'm not a sex addict. I'm representing normal girls who, like me, also need to buy these toys."

Sex toys have become somewhat less taboo in the past few years. Texas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Colorado recently struck down bans on the sales of sex toys. (Although it remains illegal in Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, and Kansas.) And the recession actually led to an uptick in sex toy sales.

The U.S. remains a little more modest compared to the rest of the world -- when it comes to purchasing those products. China produces 70 percent of the world's sex toys, which brings the country an annual revenue of around $2 billion. But only 2 percent of those China-made gadgets land in the laps of American men and women, according to a report from the China Market Research Center. South Africa is the leading market for China's sex toys, with about 20 percent, followed by South Korea and Russia.

And many end up in Garvey's mailbox in the U.K., she says. "My family and friends all know what I do for a job. My friends think I have the best job in the world and I think it's perfect."

At the very least, it's a job that could help you develop self-knowledge.
