Hallie Potocki, a writer with First Magazine (1.5 million readers), is doing a piece on sexual confidence for women and is looking for a ˜testimonial’ woman who would like to share her story. She will need to briefly interview a woman between 30 and 50 (attractive as her photo will be in the magazine) whose profile would include having lived with a too-long lingering and frustrating sex-confidence robbing concern – whether physical or emotional (from ˜good girl’ syndrome to persistent vaginal infections to ˜the spark is just gone’) “- and who found that with some change — lubricant, massage awareness, self-pleasure, exhibitionism, or something else — not just her sexual confidence with her significant other improved, but her confidence overall.

“I am looking for the most reader-relatable woman “ the neighbor next door. Our demographic is working moms, so if she has kids that is a plus. I am on a tight deadline so this is an ASAP.
