You Can Now Get Paid £28,000 A Year To Masturbate
When it comes to job, you'd struggle to dream up anything more ideal than being paid to sit around all day having a wank. But for one lucky lady that dream is about to become a reality, as a UK adult store is advertising a job for a professional sex toy reviewer.
The full-time job which will see the candidate working two days from home, and three days in the office pays a salary of £28,000 a year.
They will also be entitled to time off on their birthday, private healthcare, discounted gym membership, and an annual staff retreat.

Their responsibilities will include testing lingerie, sex games and toys, and writing and videoing reviews of the products. And - in case you were wondering - the videos will be filmed after, not during, product testing.
A spokesperson for the company told the BBC: "Sex toys range from simple to risqué, and as a responsible provider of a huge catalogue of sex toys, [we] feel it necessary to both have and share a good understanding of all products, and be able to inform the public about all perks and pitfalls.
"Giving sound information and advice is truly important to us, and we want to be a platform that gives factual, honest and clear advice."

Back in May, Mark Sergeant, psychology lecturer at Nottingham Trent University, suggested that allowing staff to masturbate during office hours could be a sensible HR policy, as it would boost employees focus and and improve productivity.
That suggestion was supported by psychologist and life coach Doctor Cliff Arnall.
He told the Metro: "I would expect a masturbation policy to result in more focus, less aggression, higher productivity, and more smiling.
"Certainly, taking a masturbation break for boredom or an escape would increase work focus."

However, he did say there might be some limitations: namely that you don't fantasize about a colleague while you're at it as this could result in 'cognitive impairment'.
He also said it would be important that the person does it discreetly and quietly so they don't make anyone else feel uncomfortable.
Apparently the UK sex toy industry is worth around £250 million every year, which I guess given masturbation's near universal appeal, isn't really a surprise.
