1. Hi there. Tell us about your job and what you do?
If you read my dearly departed blog at all you know that I am a porn clerk. That’s what a degree in sociology leaves you qualified to do. At the most basic level I am a cashier, salesperson and babysitter. I also need to act as a sex therapist and bartender of sex and porn. I hear all about the personal lives and problems ( usually sexual but not always) of half the customers that walk into my store. I try to stay up to date on reviews of sex toys and to know at least something about as many kinks and fetishes as I can so I know what I’m talking about. I play a sexual matchmaker (a volunteer pimp if you will) letting certain customers know if there is somebody in the arcade or theater they might be interested in. Oh… And a constant aspect of my job is to keep thieves from stealing and to kick out the troublemakers.
2. What piece of advice would give to a co-worker?
Don’t be an asshole. So many porn clerks have really dickish attitudes immediately treating customers like disgusting pervs just because they are in their store . I won’t go back to a place because of the bad attitude of a porn clerk.
3. What 2 pieces of advice would you give to a new blogger?
If you’re doing this to make money, you’ll be rich in no time! Or not.
A. If you plan on having adult content, especially pictures or videos you should get your own domain name and self host your blog. I lost two years worth of writing because WordPress suddenly took an interest in what I was posting and kicked me off because i violated their decency rules.
B. Comment on other people’s blogs in a meaningful way, take part in any memes you find interesting and find a way to interact with other bloggers in your community. I’m still just learning that one.
4. What 1 piece of advice would you give to a veteran blogger–someone blogging for more than 3 years?
It really means a lot when you take an interest in us little guys when you comment because your advice and interest is always really appreciated. For example a top blogger in the sex blogging community is Molly of Mollys Daily Kiss. She has given me some very good blogging advice and she also included me in her top 5 of the week on her Sinful Sunday meme for a Pic I took which I am very proud of.
5. What do you hope visitors to your blog see, take away, feel or learn?
Usually my goal is to make them laugh if it’s something I’ve written. I’ll also accept hard, wet, or creeped out. I’m working on improving my finished product so reader aren’t left just scratching their heads.
6. Have you ever had something happen to you that you thought was bad but it turned out to be for the best?
I was let go from my last porn clerk job when the store closed but found another job as a porn clerk the next day in a much less stressful environment. So whew!
Bonus: What was the last experience that made you a stronger person?
I was recently fucked by a radioactive pervert and now I have x-ray vision and my cock shoots this sticky webby stuff that you do not want to get in your eye.
