Ultimate Girls' Day Out

by Shawna Scott August 30, 2014

Last weekend saw me running my very first proper trade fair booth at Harmonia's Ultimate Girls' Day Out. It was an amazing / exhausting experience. I got to talk to so many women from all over the country including Dragons' Dens' Nora Casey, and get a real feel for how Irish women view sex and sex toys specifically.

I obviously got a few funny looks; one lady literally threw my brochure and ran when she realised what she was looking at, but the response from the majority of women was actually quite positive. I was so pleased to be able to talk to folks who had never even considered a toy or vibrator before and educate them about bodysafe materials.

The funniest part of the whole weekend was just how many women would initially say "no thanks" when handed a brochure, only to come back 10 minutes later and say "Ok I've ditched my mum" or "I've ditched my kids, quick give us a brochure." It's understandable that they wouldn't want to buy something in front of their families, and I'm so grateful they came back to me.

The weekend was such a great learning experience, and I'd like to thank Jackie and Kate in Harmonia for being so incredibly helpful and accommodating. I'll definitely be back next year.
