Kiwis Super Keen To Apply For Durex Sexecutive Positions


-Gen Y and female applications high-

Durex has been inundated with applications from Kiwis wanting to become product testers.

Almost 3,500 Kiwis have applied to become Durex product testers since applications opened on Wednesday 10 December.

By region, Durex has received the most applications from Auckland so far. However, per capita*, Christchurch residents are the most eager, followed closely by residents from Hamilton, Nelson and Napier.

Members of Gen Y are proving keen for this dream job with 46 per cent of all applicants being between the ages of 20-29 years, as are Kiwi women (57 per cent of total applicants).

Durex is looking for 100 suitable sexecutives to become Durex Play Ultra testers to aid in research for the organisation - Play Ultra is part of Durex’s Play vibes range.

Applicants, who must be aged 16 or over, have until 21 January 2009 to apply, and should explain why they’re the best candidate for the job. Kiwis can apply by visiting www.durextester.co.nz.

“We’re delighted with the number and quality of applications we’ve received so far,” says David Rae, Durex NZ Country Manager. “It’s great to see so many Kiwis wanting to become Durex product testers. Given we are looking for applications of the highest quality we are still encouraging Kiwis to send in their submissions.

“We know from past Durex sex surveys that Kiwis are having a lot of sex, but it’s not necessarily of the best quality. By gaining direct feedback from our customers Durex can continue to develop new products that will enhance enjoyment and sexual wellbeing.”

One applicant cited his reason for applying as, “I like sex but am hopeless in bed and need all the help I can get before my girlfriend leaves me”.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
