What is your role at LoveHoney?
Head buyer and presenter of Sex Toys TV (LoveHoney's very own web channel).
How long have you been in adult?
I joined LoveHoney four years ago.
What advice would you give to women entering the business side of adult?
Remember that men tend to be more embarrassed talking about sex than women, which can help you to move ahead.
What's your favorite sex toy?
The iBuzz two is my absolute favorite. The concept of a musically activated vibrator for couples really grabbed my attention and I loved the idea of a sex toy that can be used with a lifestyle gadget. I was involved with the design process and although the original iBuzz was great, the iBuzz two is in a class of its own.
As a woman in adult, what's your best asset?
A genuine and informed understanding of what women want when it comes to buying sex toys. Although we cater for the male market too, LoveHoney.co.uk prides itself on also being female-friendly, so whether I'm sourcing products, presenting Sex Toys TV or dealing with customers, I keep this at the forefront of my mind and tailor my approach to suit their needs.
What's your favorite part about being a woman in the adult industry?
One of the most satisfying parts of the job is receiving positive feedback from customers. A woman in her 40s recently wrote to say that she had experienced her first orgasm after buying a vibrator from the site. It's great to know that LoveHoney is able to help and that customers of all ages feel comfortable buying from us. I also love spotting the latest 'big new thing' and breaking them into the U.K. market — the Hitachi Magic Wand is just one example.
What's your least favorite part of your job?
Admin is my least favorite task, but I set aside some time each week to get on top of it — it builds up quite quickly.
