Guide: What to Include in a Sex Toy Review

October 17th, 2010 9 comments

I’ll be the first to admit my reviews aren’t perfect.  I’m betting this list won’t be perfect either.  And I’m betting there’s one of these floating around the web somewhere.  Probably, better reviewers than I have written one.  But when I Googled it, I got bupkis, and a student of mine asked if I’d make her one.  So… Here it is.  Feel free (read: Please do! I’d love to have some input! That’s not sarcasm.  Neither was that.  Or that.  Seriously.  It’s not.) to comment and let me know if I’ve forgotten anything.

Things I Want to Know When I’m Done Reading Your Review

1 – What’s it supposed to do? – You might have noticed that there are a million and one different kinds of products out there, for people of all gender identities.  And each and every one of them, for the most part, and especially when you delve into the wonderful world beyond the traditional plastic vibe, is just a little bit different.  Either in function, or ability.  Strength, or discreetness.  The possibilities are pretty much endless.  When you’re talking about the use of the toy, I don’t really want to know how it works for you, but rather how it was intended to work in the first place.  What body parts should I use it on? Are there any I shouldn’t use it on? Can I insert it?

2 – Who do you think this toy is best suited for? – If I were a beginner, would I enjoy/be able to use it right out of the box, or is there a learning curve? What about if I’m more experienced, and have dozens of luxury vibes, or Fleshlights? Is it only for bio-females, or can bio-males use it, as well? What about if I have a small penis? Is that stroker gonna be too loose for me to enjoy it? Or if I have a large one, will my penis fit inside? Would couples enjoy using this during foreplay, or intercourse? What about mutual masturbators?  Read more…
