1. What store do you work at & how long have you been with the company?

I've been with Stag Shop just over 8 years now - which wowza - time flies when you're having fun!

2. What’s your personal favourite product and why?

Hmmm, tough choice but I love recommending Intimate Earth. They have a great variety, they're natural and better yet - they're Canadian! How can you go wrong?!

3. What is your favourite Stag Shop memory?

I love the Pride events and our yearly staff days where I get to see and meet everyone in the company.

4. What is one thing that surprised you about working at Stag Shop?

I can't say I'm an easily surprised person lol - I would say though that when I started, I wasn't expecting it to be so educational. I've definitely learned a lot and continue to learn as I go.

5. What is the most interesting OR popular question you get asked about working at a sex toy company? And what's your go-to answer?

Almost daily someone will ask "What's the weirdest thing you sell/weirdest thing people buy?" I always respond with the same thing: "Weird is a subjective term. Some people may think it is weird that people even come in here. I don't think anything is weird. We're one of a handful of creatures on this planet that have sex for fun...so have fun with it!"

1. What store do you work at & how long have you been with the company?

Currently I’m the manager of the Toronto 3 location and I’ve been with the company just over 10 glorious years! I have an entire decade under my belt here and am still going strong!

2. What’s your personal favourite product and why?

Well, the Womanizer premium got me through the pandemic... but air pleasure products in general are magical and have been a total game changer for folks…and lube! Because life is better with lube.... and Liberator throws and wedges too!

Not sure I can really pick just one thing here haha - but all the pleasure potential these products offer is simply wonderful and come with glowing reviews from my repeat customers too.
A bit of extra glide and a little elevation of the hip can truly go a long way!

3. What is your favourite Stag Shop memory?

I've worked with some amazing people here and have oh so many fond memories -
Some hands down highlights are from exciting cross promo events we've done with our local burlesque and adult club community, working Toronto pride and selling goods to one of my favorite artists!

4. What is one thing that surprised you about working at Stag Shop?

I didn't expect my position here to be so rewarding when I first applied. Every day is a unique opportunity and a privilege to provide a safe, open, judgment free environment for healthy conversations surrounding sexuality in all forms, we get to hear people's stories AND reduce stigma along the way - how cool is that?!

5. What is the most interesting OR popular question you get asked about working at a sex toy company? And what's your go-to answer?

"What is it like working here? Your job must be so fun!" - I get asked this almost every day, and my go to answer is always, it's true!

Answering this never gets old because bragging about our awesome company culture & wholesome customer interactions over the years is easy to do. 😄
