Having been raised in an all woman household, taking care of No.1 was not unfamiliar, and the values of strength and independence were part of our daily discourse. The notion of a woman taking charge of her own life, providing for herself, while also supporting a family, was ingrained deep into our DNA.
So it was just after I turned 18 that I had my first peek into the ‘industry’ by a flatmate who moved in to help cover the rent. She was extremely open about her job as a stripper with not one hint of embarrassment or shame. Kelly made it sound amazing, constantly bringing home wads of cash, always enchanting us with her tales of having mixed with the richest of the richest in Sydney’s social scene. “Wow”, I thought, imagine being able to afford the best skincare regime money could buy… that was Kelly, and I was immediately impressed.
I’d always been an extrovert. I also loved socialising and meeting new people from all walks of life, with the aim of fame while seeking out the fastest and easiest way to make a dollar. “Work smarter not harder” – my motto is to work smart AND hard!!
So, one day I was hanging out in my room, having an existential crisis about where my life was headed, when I decided to take the plunge and crack out “portrait mode” on my old iPhone. A hundred shots later, I sent a handful of the best to Sex Bomb HQ and much to my excitement received an interview with one of the lovely ladies who make the magic happen!
Nervously I showed up to my first ever Friday night shift with my smile in place and a positive mindset ready to rock it – and rock it I DID! And ever since that fun filled night, I loved every Friday (TGIF!) and enjoyed working side by side with my awesome Sex Bomb dolls.
I’ve built up so many strong friendships with the awesome Sex Bomb crew and 2019 was a great year to get into the swing of it! Thinking back on my time as a waitress and seeing how far I’ve come already – I’m a much more confident young woman. Being in the industry has been awesome for my self esteem, because no matter your size, age, colour… you’re always going to be someone’s flavour! Already, I’ve met so many kind and fun-loving souls, and I remember every face (and almost every name!) of the patrons I’ve met at our venues. I truly have had a blast!
And, it was all going so great until… the great pandemic of 2020 which hit us like a brick. In a matter of weeks the whole world came to a halt. It began to feel so surreal – surely this was a joke right? No. No it wasn’t, and my usual fun filled Fridays now had me bouncing off the walls with complete boredom. I guess the upside is that my dog is loving the countless walks she’s getting every day (it also helps mum get rid of the moon tan). But… what next? Could I still get a full refund with a receipt? Because 2020 is cancelled!
There really didn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel…. that was until I heard that our leading lady, Miss Jen Robberts, absolutely refused to give up and go into hiding. So just like that… *drumroll*…Buuber was born! The ultimate answer to save Sex Bomb Promotions. The ‘Buuber Solution’ aimed to support the girls by keeping them actively employed while giving the lads their much needed Sex Bomb fix!! It was a win/win!
So! Here‘s to exciting new beginnings and hopefully a long career with Sex Bomb Promotions! I constantly reflect – on having such an amazing job – and I didn’t have to change a thing! That’s what I believe differentiates Sex Bomb from any other company. They hold strong values of loyalty by having each other’s back, and guaranteed mutual respect. The girls are personable and work with enthusiasm, passion and love for what they do, and I can say, hand on heart, that’s because we are a true reflection of Sex Bomb’s workplace ethic – its the Sex Bomb way… plus most of all, we’re here because we’re always having a ball!
Can’t wait to see you soon!
