Earlier this year, we wrote about Pulse, a high-tech “guybrator” that uses oscillations to stimulate the frenulum of the penis. If you read about it and were like, “Hey, I might be down to try that,” here’s your chance, gents. Hot Octopuss, the company that makes the Pulse, just put up an ad for a “part-time orgasm engineer,” or male “tester.”

Here’s the job description, via their website, complete with lots of vibrator puns:

Not getting the buzz you need from your current job role? Feeling un-stimulated? Looking for a job you can grow into? Hot Octopuss has a brand spanking new role that will get you buzzing with excitement…

Hot Octopuss is a British company, sitting at the cutting edge of next generation sex toy design. We develop toys for men, women and couples that are designed to fit in with people’s lifestyles, not just their bedrooms.

Following the success of the world’s first ‘guybrator’, we are on the hunt for our first ever part time Orgasm Engineer to help test our new range of male products.

Successful applicants will be sent prototype sex toys to review on a regular basis and will be required to report back on their sexperiences.

While the company is fairly vague in terms of compensation—that’s assuming the position is compensated in the first place—the ad does say product testers will get free tissues, so there’s that.

It also specifies that successful applicants must be over 18, have good stamina, and “be able to handle pressure.” (Which sounds kind of ominous to me, but who am I to put a damper in your sex toy product tester dreams?) The ideal candidate for the position should also, of course, “have their own penis.” (As opposed to, like, someone else’s.)
