How many "I Rub My Duckie" vibrators (NSFW) would you guess you sold in your time there? The last time I went to a sex shop I was surprised to find they were sold out!

NONE! 0 we eventually ended up marking those down by like 75% lol

Ever play any tricks on customers?
i only ask because i once dragged a rather naive friend into a store, and while i was browsing for something for me and my adventurous girlfriend to enjoy, he awkwardly stood near the door by the cash register. when i returned to him, he was deep in conversation with the guy behind the counter, and excitedly showed me the brand new sex toy the guy was demoing to him, a voice operated vibrating egg.
His little face dropped when i explained that the egg was remote controlled, and the clerk was pressing the button to turn on and off the egg on him, as a joke.
I've always wondered if there were any other standard sex store employee japes and tricks that you pull on customers, or even stuff that you do to new employees similar to the classic building site trick of sending someone for a long weight (wait).
nunsloveguns194 karma2016-08-08 19:29:00 UTC
No but that is a pretty funny joke. Wish I would have did something like that.
I_Learned_Once349 karma2016-08-08 18:53:28 UTC
How common was it for men to buy sex toys for themselves, or girls buying toys for their guys? I always hear about dildos and anal beads, but for some reason fleshlights seem to be far less talked about.
nunsloveguns385 karma2016-08-08 19:02:00 UTC
Pretty common. I'd say around 99% of men coming in for a toy of their own had no idea what they're were getting themselves into though. We had a huge selection of masturbators but by the end the visit and with help from the employees they would leave happy. Women coming in and buying masturbators for the men in their life wasn't a very common thing unfortunately. I would always suggest it if they asked for any help or advice in the bedroom, they're great for foreplay. But the majority of the time women just kind of shrugged that idea off.
goatcoat118 karma2016-08-08 19:02:51 UTC
I bought a fleshlight in a porn store. AMA.
nunsloveguns51 karma2016-08-08 20:17:17 UTC
regular one? or a porn star one?
ElMatasiete7120 karma2016-08-08 20:31:14 UTC
Hey hey hey. WE make the questions here, buddy!
nunsloveguns28 karma2016-08-08 20:38:58 UTC
sorry... just curious :p
Now_You_Did23 karma2016-08-08 20:43:58 UTC
Are the porn star ones better?
nunsloveguns17 karma2016-08-08 20:58:20 UTC
no just the lips are different lol

qjh1kzs226 karma2016-08-08 18:05:19 UTC
How big was the largest dong you sold?
nunsloveguns419 karma2016-08-08 18:10:11 UTC
We had one dong called the cockzilla, it was a big black and 17 inches that's the biggest I can remember
MorphineBear226 karma2016-08-08 18:33:27 UTC
Was there a particular reason you wanted to work there? Interest in porn? Good pay? Benefits?
nunsloveguns323 karma2016-08-08 18:44:28 UTC
Pay sucked. I really did enjoy helping customers figure out their body and what they can do in their marriage or relationship to just better themselves and they're partner. Would totally do it again just not another store with an arcade lol
MorphineBear49 karma2016-08-08 18:42:10 UTC
Also, what do you think was the most "exotic" item sold in the store?
nunsloveguns131 karma2016-08-08 18:53:35 UTC
Definitely the large pieces. I always found the fisting hands pretty out there lol
LadBooboo200 karma2016-08-08 17:59:34 UTC
What kind of mess did you have to clean at the video arcade?
nunsloveguns314 karma2016-08-08 18:01:51 UTC
Poop, cum, piss. Most people had the "decency" to at least do it in the trash though.
LadBooboo34 karma2016-08-08 18:13:14 UTC
Nasty. Hope you wore gloves or something. Thanks for answering though.
nunsloveguns62 karma2016-08-08 18:48:46 UTC
OF COURSE. I'd double up on gloves while cleaning
Ollieacappella153 karma2016-08-08 18:06:15 UTC
What was the most awkward situation you got into while working there? Did any of the customers with uncontrollable, raging boners forget it was a shop for buying material and offer you money to finish them off?
nunsloveguns284 karma2016-08-08 18:12:27 UTC
Hmm I once had a customer ask me to do fetish lingerie modeling and after I said no he then said "well you could get good money for pictures of your feet." Pretty awkward
partenza134 karma2016-08-08 17:58:09 UTC
Have you ever bought something for yourself?
nunsloveguns308 karma2016-08-08 18:05:21 UTC
Of course. I wouldn't have been such a great saleswoman without first hand experience.
TerpBE132 karma2016-08-08 18:16:32 UTC
What was it like when you saw someone you knew as a customer? Any awkward encounters? (Teacher, clergy, friend's parent, etc.)
nunsloveguns211 karma2016-08-08 18:29:00 UTC
It wasn't really awkward. I know for them it may have been. But I tried to make anybody that I knew that came into the store as comfortable as possible just because it's kind of already awkward walking into a porn store for most people
rvaruss122 karma2016-08-08 17:55:40 UTC
Did you ever hook-up with a customer?
nunsloveguns245 karma2016-08-08 17:56:49 UTC
No way. I did meet my current boyfriend there but he was a co-worker.
freuds_sour_milk115 karma2016-08-08 17:58:47 UTC
Were the old men or the stall doors more crustier?
nunsloveguns131 karma2016-08-08 18:02:12 UTC
Definitely the old men
pbuk84103 karma2016-08-08 19:05:02 UTC
What do women buy (apart from dildos) that a fella could purchase for her as a gift? I'm not a creep but wanna buy something for the wife.
nunsloveguns129 karma2016-08-08 19:34:18 UTC
Clitorial stims, bullets, eggs ect. Massage oils are great. I always recommended the candles that burn into massage oils they smell amazing and don't get too hot. Maybe look into beginners bondage items? It really all depends on your wife and what she is into
enclavedzn91 karma2016-08-08 18:59:40 UTC
Ever meet any pornstars while working there?
nunsloveguns158 karma2016-08-08 19:08:56 UTC
Kelsi Monroe was a regular. Super nice chick. A few who did amateur porn but Kelsi was the biggest
VivaVeronica31 karma2016-08-08 19:37:17 UTC
What did she buy so much that made her a "regular?" Or was she going to the booths?
nunsloveguns65 karma2016-08-08 19:41:06 UTC
courteecat88 karma2016-08-08 18:04:15 UTC
Whats your most memorable customer?
nunsloveguns180 karma2016-08-08 18:20:19 UTC
I can't think of one particular customer, but the most memorable moments was when the customers would come back into the store and tell us how much we've helped them with any intimacy issues they may have had.
courteecat34 karma2016-08-08 18:31:54 UTC
What sort of things would you normally recommend?
metalhead453 karma2016-08-08 18:45:51 UTC
nunsloveguns113 karma2016-08-08 18:51:23 UTC
Spot on! Our selection of boner pills was limitless
waterbuffalo75019 karma2016-08-08 18:56:38 UTC
And they're not all bullshit?
nunsloveguns42 karma2016-08-08 19:05:49 UTC
Well, we had some customers swear by them and buy them everyday but honestly my personal opinion is that it's kind of just a mind thing.
courteecat17 karma2016-08-08 18:53:09 UTC
What about penis enlargement things? Think Austin Powers
darksiderising24 karma2016-08-08 18:56:54 UTC
Lots of potential for permanent damage with those things. Have you tried a silicone cock ring before? You'll get hard and stay harder longer.
nunsloveguns28 karma2016-08-08 19:06:59 UTC
Great suggestions! Pair that With some stud 100 you'll be hard for quite a while!
bookham81 karma2016-08-08 18:30:07 UTC
Any stories about people returning products? Why did they return them?
nunsloveguns165 karma2016-08-08 18:36:58 UTC
ALL THE TIME! You would be surprised at how many times people try and return crap. We tested every toy before it left the store because we had no return policy. Opened the toys up, put batteries in them and showed them to the customer most of the time just so they know what they're getting. They would try and return them later and say "this isn't working anymore" leave their bodily fluids all over them! Then we would have to put on gloves and test them again. 99% of the time the toys people tried to return worked just fine. I think they thought it they don't clean it before they bring it back we won't test it.
sithhappensbro81 karma2016-08-08 18:16:11 UTC
Funniest experience with someone you know while working?
nunsloveguns247 karma2016-08-08 18:41:48 UTC
One time we had some kid, probably around 19 or so, jerked off in front of one of the employees for at least two minutes before she finally noticed him and kicked him out. The whole thing was on a security camera. The footage was hilarious!
007thisguy78 karma2016-08-08 19:10:48 UTC
Were you guys okay with people doing "whatever" in the booths? / is it legal?
nunsloveguns114 karma2016-08-08 19:21:32 UTC
The employees including myself we're not ok with letting them get away with whatever they wanted but the cooperate bosses out of state wanted us to keep are mouth shut.
squidravioli77 karma2016-08-08 18:11:25 UTC
Did you eventually become numb to it all?
nunsloveguns96 karma2016-08-08 18:21:07 UTC
Pretty much, yea

Ever had customers dildo fight while in store?
nunsloveguns94 karma2016-08-08 20:22:58 UTC
no but the employees did lol

What percentage of clientelle was female?
nunsloveguns101 karma2016-08-08 18:25:39 UTC
I'd say probably around 40%

How often did you receive prank phone calls?
nunsloveguns100 karma2016-08-08 19:16:50 UTC
ALL THE TIME ... Mostly kids
camel_sinuses44 karma2016-08-08 18:25:31 UTC
Inside jokes at the store? Nick names for repeat customers? Give us the dirt!
nunsloveguns80 karma2016-08-08 18:38:34 UTC
We had cruisers that would hang out by the video booths and try to hook up with other men. We called them booth jockeys.... Not exactly sure why? But the other employees we're calling them that before I even started
arhanv41 karma2016-08-08 18:18:54 UTC
People still buy CD porn?
nunsloveguns84 karma2016-08-08 18:24:47 UTC
Oh yes! When I started working there I was completely shocked how many people still buy DVDs. We also did rentals! Half the store was actual porn DVDs
ILuvRedHeadz39 karma2016-08-08 19:24:07 UTC
How many people have you seen "fall asleep" in the video booths? Who cleans the cum? Whats the worst mess you have seen in there?
nunsloveguns40 karma2016-08-08 19:36:44 UTC
Multiple. People would like to do poppers and pass out back there.
FairyKingdom34 karma2016-08-08 19:14:00 UTC
Did you sell hentai or furry porn, or things that were not typical?
nunsloveguns39 karma2016-08-08 19:22:35 UTC
Did sell hentai but discontinued it a couple months before I left. Wasn't really a hot seller
tittoast32 karma2016-08-08 19:05:53 UTC
What is your grossest story from working at a porn shop?
nunsloveguns57 karma2016-08-08 19:23:13 UTC
Taking out trashcans filled with poop
glasslife30 karma2016-08-08 19:02:11 UTC
that red head guy in your more proof video totally looks like a porn store employee
nunsloveguns50 karma2016-08-08 19:16:14 UTC
That was my boss. Been there for almost 15 years
tngamerjr29 karma2016-08-08 19:00:51 UTC
Do you think porn stores can stay open with the internet having tons and tons of free porn?
nunsloveguns60 karma2016-08-08 19:10:51 UTC
Honestly idk.. But I've seen stores now where the store is like 80% toys and maybe 20% porn :/
justscottaustin28 karma2016-08-08 19:32:09 UTC
How hard was it to be a female working in a porn store? Was harassment common, or was it more live-and-let-live? How many of your customers were drunk or high?
nunsloveguns39 karma2016-08-08 19:48:12 UTC
I worked day shift so not so bad. Night crew got most of the bad end of customers. Drunks, crazies all of that. Never got harassed. Hit on a few times but I usually change the subject immediately
DaveGrohlsShinyTeeth27 karma2016-08-08 19:01:42 UTC
Did you get an employee discount?
nunsloveguns115 karma2016-08-08 19:11:25 UTC
50% OFF wasssuppp. I was always the friend that got their friends sex toys for birthdays and Christmas
pimaxc35 karma2016-08-08 19:37:33 UTC
Oh god I'd spend way too much there with a 50% discount
nunsloveguns33 karma2016-08-08 20:23:34 UTC
believe me.. i did!
squidravioli27 karma2016-08-08 18:11:46 UTC
Did you get any dirt on anyone you know?
nunsloveguns73 karma2016-08-08 18:22:19 UTC
There was some people I went to high school with that would come in looking for anal toys but I never judged them or anything like that. they would of been the ones kind of embarrassed.
danmanx22 karma2016-08-08 18:07:42 UTC
Do you have redhead porn? I love redheads.
nunsloveguns39 karma2016-08-08 18:20:53 UTC
Of course. Unfortunately we did not have a section devoted to them lol
MurlocZylinder22 karma2016-08-08 18:07:17 UTC
Any weird/bad experiences with any customers ?
nunsloveguns61 karma2016-08-08 18:13:36 UTC
Most of the bad experiences I've had was with the people who would use the booths. Not closing doors, not locking them, jerking off in the hallway ect lol
PM_ME_PEEKABOOBS15 karma2016-08-08 19:00:36 UTC
What was your favorite section of the store? The section you liked to answer questions about, help customers, or laugh at the sexual puns, or just personally enjoyed.
nunsloveguns27 karma2016-08-08 19:14:37 UTC
Definitely the movies! The covers, the names, the variety was just insane!
caleel8 karma2016-08-08 19:35:12 UTC
What is the etiquette in the arcade...I went to porn store one time just to say I've been in one. I think it was mainly curiosity as I'm lucky enough to get some private time at home while the wife is away or she lets me handle my business when shes too tired/headache etc. Anyways when I went in I walked around and notice the booths dudes just pounding away...I immediately looked away and said oh shit don't look inside those booths windows. I then notice a guy rubbing one out watching another guy rub out through the window. That's when I walked away.
Back to my question is that the normal people just watching other folks?
I think I would be self conscious to be honest and wouldn't be able to even whip it out in fear of someone walking by. A snapchat or text sure but just let it hang out...I'm not sure about that one.
nunsloveguns9 karma2016-08-08 19:50:14 UTC
Yes! So normal! Some dude would leave their doors cracked open just so people could watch. We had cameras back there with a video screen we kept at the counter so literally anybody could see them
confirmed447 karma2016-08-08 20:12:20 UTC
Have you watched the Sex Factor?
nunsloveguns9 karma2016-08-08 20:15:28 UTC
No! I follow Asa akira on Instagram and I remember her promoting it! Always wanted to watch it

What's the strangest reason a person have you when they asked for a refund/return ?
nunsloveguns8 karma2016-08-08 20:26:39 UTC
because it "didn't do the job good enough"
mystriddlery2 karma2016-08-08 19:39:56 UTC
Do people ever ask for your suggestions or have you help pick between different products?
nunsloveguns2 karma2016-08-08 19:57:42 UTC
I would say around 80% of the time customers went off what we recommended which is why product knowledge is so important.
kid_tiger1 karma2016-08-08 19:15:20 UTC
did you ever use the video arcade yourself?
nunsloveguns2 karma2016-08-08 19:34:36 UTC
doesntakethehighroad1 karma2016-08-08 19:24:27 UTC
Emm, so anyone gonna mention that sex toys aren't porn?
nunsloveguns1 karma2016-08-08 19:35:59 UTC
Half the store was porn to... Just no pictures of it
