Single mum-of-two who became a professional sex toy tester after her glowing review of a vibrator went viral reveals her top five buys for the bedroom: ‘Everyone should start the day with an orgasm’

  • Carly Sophia wrote her first review in 2020 and now has a thriving Instagram 
  • She receives hundreds of messages a year from men and women seeking advice
  • The mum now works exclusively for online sex toy retailer Wild Secrets
  • She’s tried over 50 sex toys, says ‘everyone should start the day with an orgasm’
  • She’s had ‘job injuries’ but she puts it down to being ‘dedicated at her craft’

Single mum-of-two Carly Sophia was working as a beauty writer when she fell into the lucrative and unexpected career of ‘sex toy testing’ by chance.

The busy mother of four-year-old twins, from Sydney, had just purchased a vibrator online and noticed her skin was flushed and glowing after an afternoon of use.

She decided to write an enthusiastic review about her experience which inspired thousands to try the Wild Secrets toy for themselves, and quickly caught the retailer’s notice. 

‘I’d written countless articles trying to help women achieve a natural glow using products – why not suggest a different way they could have the real thing?’ Carly told FEMAIL.

Her online review went viral, with Wild Secrets confirming that Carly’s endorsement  contributed to a 75 per cent increase in sales.

She was immediately signed as a brand ambassador and content creator and is now on a company retainer as a ‘tester’ for them and their sister site, Fantasy Lingerie.

‘When people ask what I do for work I’m pretty straight up about it,’ she said.

‘I think women’s bodies and our pleasure have been stigmatised for way too long.  

‘I’m proud to be part of something that’s breaking down barriers and empowering Australians to celebrate and explore their sex lives.’ 

Not surprisingly, Carly has amassed an impressive collection of sex toys which she stores in a large chest of categorised, labelled drawers.

‘I know ‘How to build a sex room’ is trending right now, but I have two four-year-olds and no room so as much I’d like beautiful shelves of dildos on display I need to be a bit more discreet,’ she said.

Her line of work is not without risk though, with Carly confessing she’s experienced ‘sex injuries’ on more than one occasion.

Carly’s top five favourite sex toys 

1. Kiss Bullet, $23.99 It’s small but incredibly powerful, meaning you can use it to climax clitorally during penetrative, partnered sex. Men need to see sex toys as an ally, not a threat, in the bedroom

2. Lelo Enigma, $278.99 This is the ultimate double whammy, using sonic waves for clitorial stimulation and internal g-spot massage

3. Satisfyer Pro 2, $69.99 Mimicking the sensation of oral sex, this combines air pulse technology with vibration for back to back climaxes

4. Glow Wand, $43.99 The softest, smoothest wand with the most powerful vibrations, this is an excellent accomplice during bondage play

5. Lelo Soraya 2 Deluxe, $287.99 Known as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of rabbits, this combines power and precision for dual clitoral and g-spot orgasms

Carly says that empowering women to enjoy regular orgasms is something that she feels truly passionate about and is a big believer of starting every day with a climax

‘I have two four-year-olds and no room so as much I’d like beautiful shelves of dildos on display I need to be a bit more discreet,’ she said

‘I spent a week in hospital with a kidney infection early this year. The doctor asked if I’d recently got a new partner and I had to confess that I’d just finished writing an article where I’d tried seven sex toys in seven days,’ she said.

‘I have also dislocated my knee and pulled muscles in the throes of orgasm. What can I say? I’m nothing if not dedicated to my craft.’

Carly is regularly approached by fans who ask for sex toy suggestions and always takes the time to offer personalised recommendations.

‘Someone who gets off on clitoral stimulation may not enjoy a penetrative toy, or a g-spot massager. Some people who reach out to me have never orgasmed before at all, and I feel honoured that they trust me enough to share their journey with me,’ she said. 

‘It’s good for my mental health. Sex is like therapy for me, my mind feels so much clearer and my mood is so much more relaxed and happy once I’ve got myself off,’ she said

‘Some women seek advice on getting their sex drive back after having a baby, and my advice is always the same: If you don’t use it, you lose it. Masturbate regularly.’
