CONSULTANT

  • What is a My Pure Pleasure Consultant?

    Independent My Pure Pleasure Consultants are trained as experts in the company's products and serve as educators and facilitators for those who want to host a My Pure Pleasure Party in the privacy and comfort of their home or the home of a friend. Guests are invited to view, touch, taste and sample products they may not have the opportunity or courage to shop for in a retail store. Moreover, guests can ask questions, share stories, and receive valuable sexual education from the Consultant and other partygoers.

  • Do I have to pay for Hostess Rewards?

    NO - My Pure Pleasure offers all Consultants FREE COMPANY PAID Hostess Rewards! With our Free Company Paid Hostess Rewards Program you will earn approximately $50 to $80 more on every $500 party than you would with other companies that do not offer paid Hostess rewards. See our Hostess Rewards Comparison Chart on our website under Discover the Opportunity > Free Hostess Rewards.

    With the My Pure Pleasure Company Paid Hostess Rewards Program, you get to keep the commission you earn at your parties, and you do not have to worry about how much your Hostess Rewards will cost you. Why worry about having high party sales and your hostess gifts costing you a lot of your hard earned money, when you can be a Consultant with My Pure Pleasure and WE PAY for the Hostess Rewards, Booking Credits, Monthly Hostess Incentive Item, and 1/2 price items.

  • What is my buying discount?

    My Pure Pleasure offers a 40% buying discount, no matter which Starter Kit you purchase. Additional buying discounts up to 55% are available for those who decide to carry inventory. With the My Pure Pleasure Company Paid Hostess Rewards Program and Free Credit Card processing, all the commission you earn is yours, you do not have to worry about giving a portion of it to the Hostess like with most other companies.

  • Can I earn additional rewards?

    My Pure Pleasure Consultants are rewarded in many ways. We offer FREE Company Paid Hostess Rewards, Fast-Track Bonuses, Sponsor Bonuses, Anniversary Bonus, Free Product Rewards, Home and Car Allowance, Leadership / Override Bonuses and more. As an Active Consultant, you are also eligible for monthly contest incentive bonuses. Unlike most companies where you have to recruit numerous people before you earn override, My Pure Pleasure Consultants can begin earning override from their very first recruit.

  • Do all companies have the same buying discount & rewards?

    No, all companies are different.  Many companies make their Consultants pay for Hostess Rewards, Hostess Gifts, Booking Certificates, and Credit Card Processing Fees. When you add up all of your out-of-pocket costs, a 35% to 40% buying discount is now closer to 20% to 25% or less. We encourage you to do your homework on a company before signing up. Call their home office, talk to their Reps, and find out every single cost you will incur. Ask if you need to carry stock, which can be very costly, especially if they change their products. If a company does not list their benefits on their website, they probably don't exist.

  • Why should I become a Consultant?

    Becoming a My Pure Pleasure Consultant offers you the opportunity to own and manage your own business, and prosper from unlimited earning potential. You can build your business to the level of success your personal drive and ambition will take you. Tammy J. Gellner, Founder and President of My Pure Pleasure, listened to the experiences people had working with other party plan companies, and designed My Pure Pleasure to give people what they asked for. "When you join our team at My Pure Pleasure, you will be in business for yourself, but never by yourself."

    In addition to the financial rewards, you will be joining the My Pure Pleasure Family, which is a group of women, men, and couples across the United States who share the same passion for the business and enhancing life. Every member of the My Pure Pleasure Family will tell you..."We empower each other every day, and not only is it motivating, it is great to know you always have someone in your corner".

  • Do I have to be a woman to be a Consultant?

    Absolutely not! We do not discriminate when it comes to sex. Women, Men and Couples are all welcome to become Consultants and join the My Pure Pleasure Family. All Consultants are expected to maintain a professional sex positive image at all times and enjoy helping and educating people about human sexuality.

  • How often do I get paid, and what will I earn?

    With My Pure Pleasure, you get paid the night of your parties. Because you earn profit on ALL sales, the sky is the limit! My Pure Pleasure also offers excellent incentives such as cash bonuses, sponsor bonuses, travel, jewelry, free products, automobiles, and even money for your dream home.

    Commissions from your credit card party orders and website sales are paid on a weekly basis. Compensation for override, bonuses, incentives, and awards are paid on the 20th of each month. If the 20th falls on the week-end or a holiday, you will be paid on the next business day. You will be able to track your compensation, statistics, and incentives through your Business Management Center.

    My Pure Pleasure offers a 40% buying discount, no matter which Starter Kit you purchase. Additional buying discounts up to 55% are available for those who decide to carry inventory. With the My Pure Pleasure Company Paid Hostess Rewards Program and Free Credit Card processing, all the commission you earn is yours, you do not have to worry about giving a portion of it to the Hostess like with most other companies.

  • Does every Home Party Company pay the same way?

    NO. My Pure Pleasure is one of the few party companies that does not make you have your own merchant account, and still offers you payment in the form of cash compared to products. Many companies offer you product credit or company dollars instead of cash from your profit from sales. My Pure Pleasure believes the money you earn is yours.

  • Can I earn a 6 figure income?

    YES, but it will not happen overnight. Party Sales are very important, along with Sponsorship. You will be rewarded appropriately for your hard work. For example, if you were to hold 8 parties a month, with total monthly retail sales of $4,000 ($500/party), and you personally sponsored 35 Active Consultants, and they each sponsor 4 Active Consultants (your level 2), and they each sponsor 4 Active Consultants (your level 3), and they each sponsor 4 Active Consultants (your level 4), each having monthly retail sales of ONLY $500...You would be earning well over $150,000 a year!

    The earnings of $150,000+ annually, would be before any other incentives and bonuses. At the National Director Level, you would be eligible to earn the $2,000/month Home and Car Award, along with many other bonuses and rewards as you climb the ladder of success!  As a National Director, your average earnings would be close to $200,000 annually.

  • Do I need to worry about State Sales Tax?

    NO. My Pure Pleasure will file and pay your State Sales Tax. This service is just one of the many benefits you receive as a My Pure Pleasure Consultant.

  • What is a My Pure Pleasure Party, and how does it work?

    My Pure Pleasure is a direct-to-consumer sales channel in which My Pure Pleasure Consultants sell an extensive line of bath, body, and bedroom accessories through an informative and fun in-home demonstration called a My Pure Pleasure Party. The Hostess invites friends, neighbors, and co-workers to come to their home and see a product demonstration, learn about the latest in sensual products, and have a fun night out. Guests can view, sample, and purchase products in a safe environment and feel comfortable when ordering in a private and confidential ordering room.

    The Direct Selling Association reports that group presentation selling is now the fastest growing channel in the direct sales industry.

  • What type of parties can I hold? Ladies-Only, Co-Ed, Couples

    Your Choice! As a My Pure Pleasure Consultant, we offer you the unique opportunity to host the type of parties YOU are comfortable with. You will be trained and supported, no matter what type of parties you decide to hold.

    Over the years, parties have primarily been intended for women to enjoy a night out with the girls. This was a great way for them to spend some time away from the husband / boyfriend and also the children for the evening. Lately, more and more couples and men want to be a part of the party. They enjoy sharing the experience of selecting the items with their partner, and having the excitement build towards using the items when they get home. The Couples Party offers partners a chance to view items together in a non-threating environment and to learn about products they are sometimes too embarrassed to inquire about. All attendees must be 18 years or older, and if men are present, you will need to confirm with your hostess that all guests are aware there will be men in attendance.

  • Do all companies allow men at parties?

    No, My Pure Pleasure is one of the very few companies which allow parties for ladies, men, couples, and co-ed. Many companies only allow women at their parties. My Pure Pleasure believes that if someone would like to hold a party, they should be able to. Many couples enjoy sharing the experience of selecting the items with their partner, and having the excitement build towards using the items when they get home. A Couples Party offers partners a chance to view items together in a non-threating environment and to learn about products they are sometimes too embarrassed to inquire about elsewhere. All attendees must be 18 years or older.

    As a My Pure Pleasure Consultant, we offer you the unique opportunity to host the type of parties YOU are comfortable with. You will be trained and supported, no matter what type of parties you decide to hold.

  • Parties for Bachelorette, Theme, Holiday, Divorce, etc.

    These parties are a great way for you to build up your network of hosts and customers. My Pure Pleasure will train you on how to hold specialized parties, and assist you in ordering party-specific supplies. Including theme party supplies in with a typical party is a great way to generate higher party sales.

  • Do I have to hold In-Home Parties?

    NO.  You can do online parties, catalog parties, virtual parties...OR...you can just promote website sales only.  No matter what type of party you hold, you will still receive Free Company Paid Hostess Rewards, Free Credit Card Processing, and ALL of the other benefits offered by My Pure Pleasure.

  • How much does it cost to get started?

    You can start your own My Pure Pleasure business for as little as $99 (plus tax and shipping). All My Pure Pleasure Presentation Kits include everything needed to start, launch, and grow your own business. As a new Consultant, My Pure Pleasure offers you several Presentation Kit options to choose from. The larger the kit you choose, the larger your sales profit will be due to having more products for your Hostess and Guests to preview, test, and sample before placing their order. The Silver, Gold, and Platinum Kits also include inventory items to be sold to customers making night of the party or impulse purchases.

    Don't worry if you can't afford a big kit in the beginning. You will have an opportunity each month as a My Pure Pleasure Consultant to earn FREE Products to build up your Presentation Kit through incentives and the My Pure Pleasure Free Product Rewards.

  • How do I book parties?

    Your first party is usually done for your friends. Ask them to bring along a few guests you don't know and book parties with those new faces. Many Consultants also host their own parties on a regular basis to earn the Hostess Rewards. Invite all your friends and family over to check out your new business. Explain incentives for party bookings, play a game or two, and make your launch party fun. (We will train you how) Best of all, YOU will receive the FREE Company Paid Hostess Rewards. Just one of the many perks of being a My Pure Pleasure Consultant.

    With our customized training, amazing Company Paid Hostess Rewards program, booking incentives, 1/2 price items, free gifts, and more, you will not have any problem keeping your party calendar full.

  • How many parties do I have to do?

    This is your business and you are in charge of your time. The number of parties you do is completely up to you. You work My Pure Pleasure around your life, not your life around My Pure Pleasure.

  • Can I advertise my business?

    Yes...and, why wouldn't you with all of the amazing, professionally designed advertising options My Pure Pleasure offers?

    My Pure Pleasure is proud to also offer free customized one-on-one training designed to suit your personal and business goals and needs.

  • Can I do parties if I'm very shy?

    Many women and men have trouble talking about relationship enhancement products due to a lack of knowledge. An amazing perk of My Pure Pleasure is that the company educates you in sexual topics and teaches you how to talk about these topics in ways that not only interest and enlighten your guests, but also make you and your guests feel at ease. Once you feel more comfortable and confident, you can add your own personality and style to your parties. Just remember that above all, your guests will appreciate sincerity and knowledge.

  • Do I have to keep stock / inventory?

    No, the choice is yours. As a My Pure Pleasure Consultant, you are not required to carry any type of inventory. All orders can ship from My Pure Pleasure Corporate.  If you decide you want to stock certain items, buying discounts of up to 55% are available and you will be able to manage your inventory within your Business Management Center.

    Many Consultants will carry a few items that guests can take home the night of the party. This is a great way to earn extra cash. Women (and men) are impulse buyers, and, therefore, more likely to purchase products if they can receive them on the spot. When you invest a percentage of your earnings into inventory, you and your bank account will benefit.

  • What is the worst thing that could happen if I join My Pure Pleasure?

    My Pure Pleasure is offering you a chance to own your own business and determine your own business hours and income, all while showering you with exciting gifts, incentives, rewards, and the never-ending free training that is the secret to success for so many. Although owning your own business requires hard work and effort for success, My Pure Pleasure will always be there to give you the support you need. The worst thing that can happen to you is that you can pass up the chance to be a part of such a wonderful, giving company. So, be good to yourself and invest in your future...You deserve it!

  • What will people think of me if I sell these products?

    If someone chooses to be negative about your job as a My Pure Pleasure Consultant, put simply, they probably wish that they too could spend more time with their family and friends and have a fun and rewarding job. Your main focus as a Consultant is to educate people on how to have more fulfilling relationships, and that's something you can feel proud to do. Certain products may offend some people and excite others; your job is to help each client select those items that make them happy.

  • What can I tell my kids that I do for a living?

    Each Consultant must personally decide how to tell their children about their My Pure Pleasure business. It is important to take into account the ages of your children. Older children can handle more mature explanations. Just remember to focus on the positive changes My Pure Pleasure brings to relationships, rather than on specific products. Many current Consultants feel that honesty is very important. Children are naturally curious and will probably demand some explanation if you don't disclose any information about your business. If you are honest from the beginning, they are more likely to be supportive. Also, don't forget to remind them that the reason you can stay home with them and attend their fieldtrips and baseball games is because of your My Pure Pleasure business.

  • What if I decide My Pure Pleasure isn't for me? What if I change my mind?

    If things aren't going the way you planned, before making any decisions, you should try to talk to your Sponsor, fellow My Pure Pleasure Consultants, and the My Pure Pleasure home office. You may talk to someone who has been in your shoes and possibly hear a word of encouragement that can change your entire outlook. At the very least, you simply stop hosting parties, and enjoy the profits you've earned or the products you've purchased.

  • Do I have to recruit?

    NO, recruiting is completely optional. However, you will find that by sharing the earning opportunity with others, your business and income can grow beyond your wildest expectations. The more team members you have, the higher your override, the higher you climb up the ladder of success, and the more profit you will make! Building a team of enthusiastic and passionate Consultants will reward you in ways that you may never have imagined.

  • Do I need to build a website for an Internet presence?

    NO! My Pure Pleasure provides every Consultant with a professionally-designed fully functional eCommerce website. Your website will allow Hostesses to book parties, new Consultants to join your team, and a full-featured shopping cart, so your customers can shop 24 /7, and you can earn money while you sleep.
