Wicked Sensual Care Spotlights Adam & Eve's Bri King

LOS ANGELESWicked Sensual Care has selected Bri King of the Adam & Eve store in the Dallas area for its Retail Employee Spotlight, a column in the company’s monthly newsletter.

King’s background includes leadership and retail positions within the hospitality, coffee and precious stones industries, prior to her arrival at Adam & Eve’s Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington store.

“I had always felt like I would do well in the adult retail industry, but I was nervous about change,” she said. “But I had a really pivotal moment in life where everything changed and I wanted to try things I had previously disregarded due to fear. I saw the ‘now hiring’ ad for Adam & Eve and I applied. I was nervous, but walking into my interview I instantly felt, ‘Yup, this is it. I’m where I’m supposed to be.’”

Her compassionate nature along with her interpersonal skills, product knowledge and empathy have made her a valuable asset to the company, Wicked Sensual noted. “My specialty is helping people who are anxious about the idea of an adult retail environment feel at ease,” King said. “I want people to feel so accepted, so welcome, and so comfortable speaking about what they’re looking for that they leave feeling like they were talking to me about a handbag they wanted. I remind people that it’s okay to be nervous, those feelings are valid. I am a safe space, and sexuality is not something to be afraid of.”

King admitted she aims to inspire individuals who may be considering a career in adult retail. “What I say to people is, go after the career you feel is your calling. It is okay to be scared, it is okay for you to be in a new environment and have to learn everything from the ground up. Work for a company that genuinely cares about you, your family and your well-being. Work somewhere you are appreciated and respected. Go after your dreams and I promise you will find the perfect fit for yourself and your life.”

Jennifer Brice, sales director for Wicked Sensual Care, hailed King’s product knowledge and ability to connect with customers. "Bri King knows that understanding and acknowledging the customer's perspective fosters a sense of connection," she said. "She empathizes with the customer's situation, demonstrating genuine concern and a willingness to assist in finding the best solution for their needs."
