The Breast Internship Ever
Written by Bwog Staff
The typical nine-to-five for Ramon Diaz, CC ’12, takes “hands on” to a new level. While his numerous photo ops really speak for themselves, Bwog couldn’t help but pose a few follow-up questions. Join us as we get the quick-and-dirty.
Bwog: How’d you get the job? We’re guessing not through CCE…?
Ramon Diaz, CC ’12: Unfortunatley not [laughs]. I wanted to work in a racy industry and CCE does not cater to jobs focusing on sex and entertainment. Initially I applied for Playboy but their NY office no longer existed and the only internship I could get with them was in Chicago. Maxim had an ad on their website about interns so I sent in my resume and got the jobs shortly after.
Bwog: Was the Dominatrix shoot your first gig? How did they approach you about it?
Diaz: Yes. The associate editor thought it would be a good idea to have me in the shoot since I was the only male intern in the office. Basically they have a section called “Maxim Office Assistant” and they get a model for the magazine every month to pose at our office in lingerie pretending to do “intern stuff.” Someone had the idea to incorporate a dominatrix for the February issue so it was only right to make me a slave for the shoot. I made my presence known in the office early and they thought I would be a good fit.
Bwog: Is the photoshoot “just another day at the office” for you?
Diaz: Like any other. I was an editorial intern so I had to transcribe interviews and do research about topics before an issue released but I was given the opportunity to voice my ideas for future issues. I never had a monotonous day; one day I might see J-Woww at the office or the next day I could be hosting a model shoot for the magazine.
Bwog: Advice to other CU students who have similar aspirations?
Diaz: All I have to say is this: If you had to speak at a career day would people genuinely be interested in your job? We are given the opportunity to attend a university where we could pursue ANYTHING so find a passion that you have and do it! Even if it’s selling sex.
