As I’ve mentioned before, I’m moving. For many reasons. Because the corner out front of my apartment. Because West Chester. Because it’s dumpy and shabby and the best I could afford when I was 23 and moved in here, but I can do better now. And because my sex education business is too big and my apartment is too small. My apartment is 629 square feet, and things related to my business take up 176 square feet, or over 1/4 of it (I had to calculate this for tax write off purposes). We are swimming in sex toys, sex ed props, and sex books.
This is my living room, piled high with inventory, teaching materials, shipping materials, and office papers.
This is my hallway, boxes of sex books!
And a plush penis.
This is my bedroom, boxes and boxes of sex toys! And plus testicles.
I can not live like this, and I can not work like this. I am so moving!
Round 1 of moving was going through my 10 million sex books and figuring out how to part with most of them. I agonized over this but finally decided to get two small boxes, and put the books I wanted to keep in them. After they were full, no more. The rest would be donated. It was hard and took me 2 months, but I did it. And then I found I’m missing some of my favorites that I knew were going into the keep pile. I lent them out and never got them back. If you borrowed Cunt from me, please return it! (PS: that was an entertaining discovery as I bellowed through the house without context, “I’m missing my Cunt!”
I gave some sex books to my Gram. The rest are being donated to the library, but they don’t take textbooks, so those are are currently being sold on my website for $3 if you’re a sex nerd and want a cheap textbook.
Round 2 of moving is going through inventory I don’t sell anymore. After closing the shop, I significantly downsized my inventory collection to mostly just a handful of products I use to demonstrate at my in-home parties. The leftover stock is now on steep clearance on my website. I have fun t-shirts for sale for $3. Sexy panties $2, lingerie as low as $7. I have a $70 harness selling for $15. Toys for $4, and high-end vibes like LELO and JimmyJane selling for a fraction of their regular price, one originally $115 now $35.
I’m confident it will all be gone by tomorrow, but anything left by morning is getting boxed and sold as a lot to a sex store. And then it will be round 3 of moving and the tale of Dr. Jill gets a new home. To be continued…
