Fancy getting paid to get frisky? (Picture: Getty Images/iStockphoto)
Looking to earn a bit of spare cash and possibly spend a bit more time in the bedroom at the same time?
Gardening and shed review site WhatShed is looking to hire three couples to test aphrodisiacs that can be grown in the home.
Whoever the lucky couples are will be paid £1,500 for the trouble.
WhatShed is looking for people to test three natural aphrodisiacs that were rated most effective in a previous trial.
Those who get the job will be sent lavender, chillies and asparagus – three plants which were found to be the best aphrodisiacs last time around. These plants will be theirs to keep.
They’ll also be send instructions on how to care for the plants as well as recipes for how they can be consumed then they’re ready.
The couples will have two months to test out each one and their, erm, effects.
When the two months are up, each member of the couple will need to send in their review, including how they used each plant, and whether the plants had any impact on their arousal and sexual experience.

The idea was born from previous research WhatShed conducted which found that, out of 2,000 couples surveyed aged 18-60, 52% of them agreed that lockdown has negatively affected their sex life.
Kate Fromings, from Whatshed.co.uk, said: ‘The feedback we received from the first trial was great. The couples involved felt that growing, cooking with, and eating their produce was not only good for their sex life, but also gave them a positive and productive distraction during the lockdown.
‘The best thing about these plants is that they don’t need masses of space to grow, with the right equipment you can grow them on your window ledge in your apartment,’ she added.
Applicants can be based anywhere in the world, they just need to be able to write in and speak English effectively.
They don’t need to have a garden and will need to provide a written statement that they have no known allergies to the plants they’ll be testing.
They’ll ideally be aged 25-60, and they must be in compliance with the Covid rules in place wherever they are.
If that sounds like you, then you have until January 31 to apply via the WhatShed website.
