“I might sound ridiculous saying this but THIS guys , This one right here IS A DREAM JOB!! There’s never been a single boring moment. When I look back to my teenage years, I see myself looking forward to the time I could surf articles on Cosmopolitan meant for adults. I have killed a huge amount of time reading those kind of stuff online. And Now, I have a job profile that pays me to read them!! Of Course later I need to produce content similar to that, but it’s all fun. I literally get paid to read sex stories and take inspiration.Here I spend time reading, researching on ideas for better relationships, date ideas and sex life. I have become so knowledgeable on intimate things that I am totally capable of being a part-time sexpert. Since the day I have joined ThatsPersonal.com, getting up for office has never been a struggle for me. I am always so pumped up to discover naughty and romantic things here. All my friends are super jealous of my job profile and life in general. I could not have asked for a better job even in my dreams!!! “

“Hailing from a traditional middle-class Maharashtrian family, I already have a lot of restrictions at home so there was no way for me to disclose this to my family. Being a girl, I had a lot of apprehensions before joining regarding the work culture and environment but I am glad to reveal everything here is extremely professional. All the doubts in my mind were put to rest after working here. People are decent, professional and exceptional at what they do. Rules and maintained just like other offices and girls are utmost respected. On my social front, I am really not comfortable in revealing this to my friends. I might receive comments like “There are other jobs as well so why do you need to jeopardize your respect and work there”. To avoid such traditional comments, I’ll stay away from telling anything to anyone.”
- Shreya, Accountant
“I come from a traditional Muslim family so no one in my family except for my wife knows about my job profile. She’s secure and happy with what I do and that’s what keeps me going at work. Amongst my friend circle, I have transformed into a “secret keeper” . My friends take me into confidentiality and ask for freebies and other products. As a distribution head, I have faced a lot of challenge in terms of getting our products noticed at different marketplaces in India. The traditional barriers have made my job profile really tough”.
- Ali, Head-Market Place Sales & Distribution
“To talk about my personal experience, I have worked with Viagra products before and this wasn’t anything too exciting for me. The problem in India is that even though people have problems, even though they need these products they won’t openly accept it. But as surprising it may sound, there is a very tough competition in this industry right now. As a marketing strategist, I need to be very dynamic and innovative with my strategies to compete with the fierce competition that’s growing every minute. It’s almost like a parallel universe where the society is caged by conservative mindset and there are a set of people embracing their sexualities and openly experimenting with it.”
