Why I Love My Job



Making Sex Accessible @ SweetVIPS

This job is not like other jobs, it's more of a lifestyle than anything, to be honest. I wake, eat, sleep everything to do with human sexuality, and increasing like-minded individuals quality of life through it. I am constantly inspired, amazed, moved and yes laughing my ass off at work every day. I won't lie, there are times my job has made me cry tears of joy and tears of pain, but overall I wouldn't trade a day of my life for anyone else's.

Below is a little story I asked one of our new clients to share. Earlier this summer I started doing some light targeted advertising for two new groups; virgins and those with disabilities (since we are a wheelchair accessible location). It didn't occur to me at the time I might find a client who fits into both of those demographics (a real face palm moment for old ms.H).

What has developed from there I will let him tell in his own words, but I can tell you it gives me the biggest heart swelling moments whenever he calls. So on this day that is celebrating love, I'm happy to share a little story about why I am in love with my job ....

My "First" Experience @ SweetVIPS

Introductions are how stories should start right? My name is Lance, I am born with SMA Type II, and I'm a regular client with SweetVIPs. My experience with both the incredible girls and equally amazing management, has actually allowed me to move forward with my life in a way. Hopefully I can tell you my story in a way that doesn’t bore you.

I do kind of need to preface my situation prior to reaching out to the agency. SMA Type II in short, is a condition that leaves you:

* Unable to build muscle
* Have bad lungs, bad swallowing
* Scoliosis (curved spine) is a guarantee as is a G-Tube
* And apparently a shorter lifespan

Growing up and going through high school wasn’t a super amazing time. I was always nervous of trying to meet people in my class unless they came to me. All the other guys were fit, handsome, and physically independent. It probably goes without saying, but since my confidence could not be any lower, I never really had any interaction with girls my age. Most of my friends had girlfriends and kept assuring me I’d have one someday. Getting out and meeting people was always hard for me, so I never felt super inclined to believe them. I was different, and most didn’t actually realize it.

Because of my atrophy, I was left unsure if I could have any form of intimacy with a girl. I was simply tired of not knowing, and being afraid of missing out. So I reached out to SweetVIPs with some general questions. I was told that me being disabled and a turbo-virgin won’t even be an issue.

Fast forward a few months. I’ve told my mother, (She’s my absolute other half, so she does have to know and be involved in some kind of capacity), and I’m finally ready to move forward and no longer dwell on the unknown. It was at this point when I became acquainted with Harvi, the magnificent owner of the agency. Both her and Charlie (The wonderful office girl I mostly dealt with) did a fantastic job of calming my nerves, but also getting across that they do in fact care about the experience of the client. They could’ve sold me on who had the best ass or the killer rack, but they didn’t; they knew what I was after and knew exactly how to help with it.

When the girl, let’s call her "Chloe", had actually shown up I was obviously crazy nervous. But Chloe knew exactly where I was coming from. Suffice to say, she was a perfect 11/10 in so many ways. She was genuine, which was something I had really hoped for. The fact that she was so genuine is what raised my self-esteem and confidence; her words had weight to them. I finally felt like disability didn’t matter. The time I shared with her is something I’ll always remember and treasure, and I’m very positive the feeling is reciprocated.

If you’re a virgin who wants his first time done with a professional or you’re looking for more than “3-wet holes”, you could not come to better people. If you’re disabled however, don’t be afraid to reach out. I did and was finally able to move on with what felt like a big hurdle in my life. The girls and management at SweetVIPs would only be happy to help someone experience something they never have before, disabled or not.

Thank you so very much Lance for enabling me to share this with others. For feedback from others in the industry - check out this thread on PERB xoxox ms.Harvi
