I have been working in Svakom for 3,5 years and it has been an amazing journey both for me personally and to see the company advance into one of the biggest brands on the market. During this time there has been a lot of fun stories and I am not sure how to choose so I will just bring you into some of highlights of the past years.
Customs Las Vegas airport - the big customs guy asks me if I have anything to declare. This was one of my first business trips so I kind of whispered 50 vibrators. He asks me loudly - what are you saying. So, I almost screamed 50 vibrators. He's face goes super red as he understands why I was whispering. Turns out he had Swedish relatives (I am Swedish) and he left his post to actually see the functions as we went through the features of the products after the x-ray.
Paris Eiffel tower security - When me and a colleague was visiting stores and doing trainings in Paris, we decided to go up the Eiffel Tower. There was a security check before that and they saw the 15 vibrators in my work bag and asked me why I had so many vibrators. Explained that I work with this and the security guys accepted the answer with a French accent saying cyyl (cool). Kept on walking and then he came up one more time asking if we are going to use the toys since people had tried to do many kinky things at the top. Couldn't hold it and laughed saying no - he also laughed and we went on to the top.
These stories are both about security but tells a good point about working in sex toys - everyone is open and very nice in the industry. And more important also outside the industry people are very and very interested in sex toys this makes everyday a fun day working in Svakom.
