    Really WEIRD Freelance Work Offers

    Does anyone ever get these?

    Weird offers out of the blue that really are genuine paying jobs, not internet scams or glorified copywriting, and just landed in your lap because someone -- maybe even a total stranger -- knew you were a writer?

    I do ask out of personal interest, since I got asked to help write reviews of male sex toys today, in a very genuine and not-particularly-sketchy way, but I'm curious what other odd offers people have fielded. And did you say yes?

    I once got asked to write a description of the anatomy of the penis for a medical site...

    Though your sex toy one sounds fun. Did you get samples to try out?

    I did, in fact, but they haven't run the review yet, so I can't post a link for you. As I said on my blog, writing takes you strange places, and sometimes it takes oddly-shaped silicone shafts strange places too.

    It's a job, right?
