Apparel Buyer & Visual Display Coordinator
A Portland native, MaryKay managed Hot Topic at the Lloyd Center, then Urban Outfitters in NW Portland before joining Fantasy in 2006 as a store manager. In 2007, she was promoted to Apparel Buyer and Visual Display Coordinator. MaryKay loves working for Fantasy because it allows her to assist people with an important but often neglected aspect of their lives: “I get to help people of all ages, sizes, and styles feel sexy.” As a buyer, she ensures Fantasy has something for everyone in an array of price points. As a shopper, she keeps retail prices reasonable, asking herself, “What would I pay for this?” She also loves working the sales floor. You can occasionally find her at the Downtown store, especially in the weeks leading up to Halloween. MaryKays’ hobbies include crafting in all mediums (she sometimes has nipple clamps for sale at the stores), gardening, dancing, karaoke, reading “silly teenage books”, and playing with her cats, Georgie and Oni.
Specialty Toy Buyer & Inventory Analyst
Wil earned his M.A. in Popular Culture and worked for independent bookstores in the other Portland (Maine) and the other Milwaukee (Wisconsin) before moving to Portland, Oregon in 2009. After several years of an open relationship with both New Seasons Market and Fantasy, the call to truly make a difference in a small, local business secured his position as a buyer at Fantasy. Wil specializes in buying specialty products, including bondage and fetish gear. He also has a fetish for Excel, data analysis, and colorful, well-organized reports. In his free time, he games (i.e. tabletop RPGs, board games, Minecraft, Civ), writes, walks about, and escapes to the coast to relax and unwind.
Toy Buyer & Blogger
Originally from Eugene, Glynn found her calling when she joined the Fantasy team in June of 2000. Originally hired as a sales associate, she’s worked at four stores and spent several years as an assistant manager before becoming a toy buyer in 2013. As one of the most knowledgeable, enthusiastic sex toy buyers on the West Coast, Glynn loves working for a company that allows her to help people embrace their sexuality, “Not just how our bodies work, but our desires and the ability to find or ask for satisfaction.” As the go-to “sexpert” for her college friends, Glynn knew she wanted to make a career helping people learn to enjoy sex. “I need everyone to know they have permission to do so.” Devoted console gamer (preferring games by Gearbox, Bethesda, and Bioware), Glynn also collects and customizes BJD or “ball-jointed dolls” (if you’re afraid of dolls at all, don’t Google that). She also sculpts and casts, relating to both passions.
