With the recession and global financial crisis summer jobs can be hard to come by, but gainful unemployment can still be had – product testing a new sex toy.

Kiwis can apply for the job at durextester.co.nz. Applications for are open until 21 January 2009 and applicants must be aged 16 or over.

No payment is involved but successful applicants for the 100 "sexexcutive" jobs at Durex will receive a free vibrating sex toy, worth about $25, to trial.

It was the dream job in a country where people were "quite willing to discuss their sexual antics", Durex New Zealand country manager David Rae said.

The company has run similar campaigns with condom testing.

Product testing helps generate product development and generates interest, Mr Rae said.

Applicants, who must be at least 16, could apply online until January 21.
