Professional Sex Toy Tester Turns Passion Into Business

New Yorker Sarah Riccio made a bold career move by leaving her traditional 9-to-5 job to become a professional sex toy tester. This unique career path allowed her to combine her love for sex with her entrepreneurial spirit, leading to the creation of Delicto, a company dedicated to all things related to adult pleasure.

Riccio’s journey began when she transitioned from being a nanny to testing mattresses and bedding in 2018. It was during this time that she met her future business partner, Rose, and the two eventually founded Delicto in 2021. The company offers product reviews, listings, and educational articles on various adult pleasure items.

With over 150 different toys tested in her career, Riccio emphasizes the importance of using body-safe materials in sex toys, such as silicone, glass, or hard plastic. She aims to provide “shame-free education” about sexuality and encourages individuals to explore their desires without judgment.

Despite facing challenges during the pandemic, Riccio and Rose persevered and grew Delicto into a successful venture. Riccio’s dedication to promoting sex positivity and safe practices in the adult pleasure industry has set her apart as a respected figure in the field.

As she continues to write articles, film reviews, and offer tips on sexual techniques, Riccio remains committed to spreading a message of empowerment and self-expression. Through Delicto, she hopes to educate consumers about making informed choices when it comes to their sexual well-being, ensuring a safe and pleasurable experience for all.
