A banker has given up her £60,000 a year job – to become a professional sex toy tester.

Cara Douglas, 37, from Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, said she became so bored of her job that she quit to start reviewing vibrators, lubricants and other sexual aids for a living.

The mother-of-two said she is now earning £30,000 a year from her new career – and even tests out her toys with her IT consultant fiancé Darren.

She claims to have 20 orgasms a week thanks to the haul of 3,000 sex aids which she has been testing at home, before reviewing them on her erotic blog.

Cara said that she much prefers her new job, despite earning less money than when she was a wealth management expert. ‘I am earning half what I was in banking but I am having twice as much fun,’ she said.

‘I hated being a banker and now I get paid for doing something I feel really passionate about.

‘I have always loved sex toys so I am very lucky to have made a career out of what was my hobby having 20 orgasms a week reviewing toys.’

She added: ‘I often have to review couples’ toys with Darren. Obviously that is fun to do but you have to maintain your professionalism and work out what aspects of the product work well and what don’t.
