Announcements of staff recruitment for the sex shops have flooded online websites, leaflets & newspapers. Not only vày they get salary, but staff members also earn commissions from the products they sell.
In the role of an employee of a sex shop on Pham The Hien Street in District 8, a Tuoi Tre journalist was required by Tuan, the owner, xuất hiện the door of the shop halfway so that clients wouldn’t feel shy while standing inside.

Immediately after the greeting a customers, the owner asks his staff lớn take the products out from a drawer to show lớn clients.
Tuan also gives his staff an A4 sheet listing different names of products the siêu thị carries, such as aphrodisiacs for men and women with boastful advertisements of their effects as ‘it’s colorless, odorless and can be mixed into water, beer, wine, or coffee for quick effect.’

The HT owner asked his staff lớn learn by heart the lists & taught from his experience on receiving customers.
“They are mainly in one of three categories – those coming out of curiosity, those in need of products và information, & finally those who are ‘professionals’ with hands-on experience,” the owner said.
Most clients visiting sex shops are seeking lubricant gel và sex toys, not condoms, he admitted.
“If sex shops were xuất hiện only for the sale of condoms, we would suffer great losses. We have to lớn cover other products for profit,” HT’s owner said.
