Lol thanks for that. I’ve been curious about it when I head/read about it but when I saw the actual item, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about using it with my partner. But if it makes for great solo play as well, I might check it out then.

This has got to be the best way to make money ever. Do you ever feel pressured to give anything less than an honest review of the product?

@anonsterlin: I think it’s pretty cool, you don’t have to defend it as much as you do – it’s nothing to be ashamed of! Who doesn’t use toys? And if you get paid to try fun stuff int eh privacy of your own home with your man, who cares! How awesome that you get paid to try this stuff out!! awesome!!!
Ok so does reviewing lubes come part and parcel with reviewing toys? If so, is there a ‘best’ one? I tried a tingling one once and it hurt my poor va-jay jay. Also, Fiance is not huge on toys, but I rely pretty heavily on my bullet/egg thingy – it’s the only thing that gets me *there* (FI has a few times, and he’s the only man who ever did)…. So is there anything better then one of those eggs taht we could incorporate into our sex life that’s a little less awkward to hold/use but just as effective?

When your honest review is super negative, are you contacted to take it down or explain yourself on why you gave that review?

@anonsterlin: have you ever used the WeVibe? I have been seriously considering getting one of these, heard it is awesome, but its a pretty hefty pricetag for a sex toy so am a little uncertain… 🙂

When I am done with the job I will host an audition for all my fellow bees and will refer the best one for the job 😛 ( I hope you all are not above bribery :P)
I always tell my honest opinion and take the whole thing quite seriously. A lot of people pay a lot of money and for most women reviews play a crucial role in their decision making. I never write something that I don’t believe. What I also learnt is that it’s not really easy to write a review about a sex toy. It has to be thoughtful, honest and interesting. I am not saying that it is poetry or literature but it takes a good effort. You have to be entertaining and give your personal opinion but you can’t make it all about you or a sex diary. You have to be objective and accurate but you can’t seem above it or indifferent or just say the pros and cons like you would with a dress. Sometimes you may not like a particular product and you should say it but if it has some ”objectively” good things to offer you should state that too. There are a lot of things to consider and a lot of women (especially married women who don’t frequent sex stores) have only the reviews to guide them. If you don’t care or just collect opinions you ve heard around and just write a review without helpful insight , it will show. So , I always try to be considerate and honest.
I am not defensive, I just know that it is not something you can do for ever if you have other jobs too and if you plan on starting a family. I like it but I wouldn’t feel offended If someone told me ”that’s not a good career choice”, I know it myself lol
Lubes. Sometimes yes they are a package deal. I choose what toys I want to review every month so I ask for the right lube and most of the time it is taken care by the site. Best one? It depends on the toy really. Never use silicone lube with silicone toys, they will probably melt. I would say that the best ones are non-paraben and water based lubes. They dry out relatively fast but they are easy to use (with almost any vibrator you choose). Swiss Navy is a great choice. There are not a lot more ”comfortable” vibes for couples play. Bullets in general are supposed to be the easy choice lol. We-vibe tango could be a solution but if you want my honest opinion, since you have already found the toy that gets you ”there” this is the best option for using with a guy too.
No , never. I have absolute freedom and my reviews are detailed and kind. I always say that even the not so great toys could have advantages and cover every possible ”angle”. And honestly the toys that I don’t like are usually the toys that most reviewers don’t like. For example If a vibrator is weak, then that’s the way it is and that’s what you have to say. What can the company do to change this fact ? The clients are not kids, are smart women who know their needs. So far and from what I hear from other people , the companies are quite liberal towards bad reviews and that’s the smart thing to do anyway.
As I said to another poster yes and I have only one answer to this. If you have the money and will to practice then give it a try. I am not crazy about it but it can really be helpful and fun. The thing with most couple toys is that they take a lot of practice, patience and both partners have to be on the same page. A lot of couples love it, other find it uncomfortable. A lot of times guys like the idea but finally lose patience . They are expensive and there is no guarantee that it will work. So if you can really afford it and your SO is into the idea ,yes it is a good choice to consider.
