Reviewers Spotlight - ToyTimeTim and Lexical

Ansley Ansley


Hello there, and welcome to our third month long Reviewers Spotlight! How this is going to work is that you have all month long to ask our wonderful reviewers questions. They'll answer when they can, and you can keep asking until the end of the month!

This month's spotlight features:

Lexical

Here's what Lexical would like for you to know about her:
Hi! I'm lexical (or Mimi)! I've been a contributor on EdenFantasys since January of 2009 after a friend recommended the review program to me. She's no longer active here, but I've stuck around for the past three and a half years! There's no getting rid of me now!

I was initially drawn to reviewing because writing has always been a passion of mine. Reviewing sex toys enabled me to combine my love of writing with another love...sex! Reviewing here gave me a base of knowledge that helped me land a job at a local fetish-wear and adult toy store, which sparked a passion for teaching people about sex and sexuality. I'm now a graduate student in a dual master's program in Social Work and Human Sexuality on my way to becoming a sex educator, college professor, and sex therapist.

The best advice I can give to new reviewers is to find a mentor! (Ahem, I have class openings available right now...hint, hint! LOL) But seriously. I had an unofficial mentor before the official mentor program existed and her assistance in learning how to navigate the site, how to go about becoming verified, what kind of information to include in reviews, etc has been indispensable. Never be afraid to seek help from others.





ToyTimeTim

Here's What ToyTimeTim wants you to know about him:

About me? Well know, rather than just repeat what I said before, I figured I would tell a bit about myself. I have a wonderful wife, two kids, three dogs (two lab mix and a Min Pin), a cat, three hens and my beloved cock; Terry (he’s a rooster, get your mind out of the gutter). Well, I do like that one too. lol! I have worked many jobs, everything from working in a shoe shop to building hospitals. So many in fact that I have a hard time remembering half of them. Most notable to me are the shoe shop where I learned to sew and work with leather and a steel fabrication shop where I got my fondness for steel. I also am a mechanic; I have been turning wrenches for over 35 years. I am proud of my ability to fix anything that has tracks or wheels. I currently work at a Big Box store (Think orange) which fits so nicely into my life and hobbies. I have many hobbies including Radio Control cars, boats and airplanes. Of course I am an avid hunter and enjoy time spent with my kids in the woods, I am one proud papa. We live off the land when we can and only take what we need. Living it the country surrounded by Mother Nature is a dream come true for me.

To me Eden is home, it’s also where some of my best friends are. Even today I have better friends here than in my city. I enjoy helping folks out when I can and my email and message box is always open for those that have questions. As many of you know I am always happy to help. When life gets me down I know I can come here and feel loved. To this day I have yet to find a better social outlet.

Favorite toys? My Eleven is still on top for dil’s although Hoss is slowly creeping up there (It’s just so damn big!) , my Flip Hole Black gets the most use, Njoy 2.0 for plugs and I enjoy my Vr9 the most for a vibe. For wants I still want the FMS 2, although I am not sure where I would put it. The Vr7 or Vr12 are also in my sights, I think a good rotating rabbit would be wonderful to use anally. I hope they are as strong as the Revo as far as rotation.

My advice is still pretty much the same as before as it has served me well and other folks too. Write the review like you are talking to you very best friend that maybe has not used a toy before. Let your personality show and give as much info as you can. You never know when a customer is looking at buying their first sex toy. Furthermore, for newbies I suggest they take it slow and take time to get comfy around the site. A mentor is a fabulous way to learn as they will take your hand and show you the ropes. If a mentor does not appeal to you (not everyone needs one) ask around for help. I know for a fact that there are lots of contributors around that are happy to help, just like me. If you can’t find one, ask me! If I can’t help I bet I know someone that can. Last but not least, be yourself and enjoy all that EF has to offer.

Aw, he looks like a sweetie! I just love the way min-pins and dobermans look. The black and tan, it's pleasing to the eye (and the short hair is a bonus).

If you could have anything on your property, what would it be and why?

Awww, Little Bit is such a cute name I also have two doggies, named Milo and Ruby. Milo's a dachshund mix and Ruby's a boston terrier. I have a bazillion pictures of them, if anyone wants to see...hahaha! Just like a proud mama.

Like Tim, I am also very honored to be featured in the Reviewer's Spotlight I'm an open book, so ask away!

I love Dobermans too, some day I will get one. Although I want one with out the ears cropped, not only kinder but they are have a less intimidating look that way. All my dogs are lovers and I like them to look that way too.

Did you know that Min Pins are in no way related to Dobermans? Nope, Min Pin's are of the Rat Terrier family. Weird, eh?


A three story brick wall with crenelations and a moat! Always wanted a castle for my own, plus it would keep unwanted solicitors away. lol

Hard one there, probably the 2011 Easter party, mostly because of the video we put together. Never have I done something so crazy before. I just went and watched it again, still laugh my ass off when I see it.

Since I know some folks have not seen it, here's the link

Pay special attention to the warning at the beginning please, I will NOT be responsible for your reactions.

Yeah, I've given up the quest for the eggs and started getting the gold crowns back that you stole from me.

First, I want to say that ToyTimeTim has been very helpful to me. He always responds quickly to ???s with great information--more information than I knew I wanted to know...really, a very nice guy.

BUT...about these AngryBirds...the Mrs. plays that and she drives me nuts with them. I just have to laugh. She has a list of where all the GoldenEggs can be found but she isn't home now. I can post it if you are interested.

So, thank you TTT for everything you have done for me and for the entire EF community.

Hey there guys!
So Lexical I love your avatar, are you the giver or the getter in the picture? What are your favorite tools of the trade, so to speak?

Tim! So we all know that Tim the 'Tool Man' was always getting hurt because he didn't like to read directions. Does Tim the 'Toy Man' have any similar stories to share about not reading the directions?

You guys seriously rock! I have to admit that I did, in fact, want to touch it....

Tim, are you working on any special projects right now that you'd like to tell us about? Does it involve partial nudity and adult settings? I hear it's a Do It Yourself Club...will you have an Al Boreland sidekick like Tool Man Tim did? OMG, do these jokes just seem to write themselves?

Not really, most of my injuries are true accidents and not due to me lack of reading. lol One thing that show taught me was not to cut corners and do it right the first time.

I have been known to not read directions or listen to advice though. I'll give you a great example that the wife will never let me forget. I had to change the heater core in her '75 Mustang, once I found where it was (under the dash on the passenger side) I showed her where it was. She likes to learn stuff like that. Anyways, she says to me "It looks like you will have to pull the dash out to get at it." I was like, "naw, there is no need for that." Well, it took me and a buddy almost two days to get that somna bitch out, the dash came out the second morning. lol Ya, I learned my lesson well with that one.

Touch what Airen? inquiring minds want to know?

As a matter of fact I have a few new projects in the works. Also I am starting a new club; DIY Eden.

The projects are a Silicone torture test, this will be a three part deal. The first is a stretch test, the second is a burn test, not your every day match deal but a full on steel cutting torch burn the hell out of stuff type of deal (did you expect anything else from me?) and my last test is a smash test. This involves a sledge hammer and my full size truck.

The club is to give ideas and instruction to folks on how to do things for themselves. Things like making a hands free lube/massage oil dispenser, a wood storage box, patching drywall or changing oil on a car. Pretty much anything that will help folks save money, that way they can buy more toys.

I think the thing that's most shaped who I am today is my schooling. In 4th grade, I was admitted to a program called "School Within A School". From elementary through high school, I was in specialized programs with the same small group of students. We all became very close and it really changed the way I learn and the way I relate to people. I chose a small college because of that and I relish the intimate professional community that I'm a part of now

Tim, the hardest one is actually one that I STILL haven't published...It's been sitting as a draft for months and months and months. I won the Zini Roae in a contest here on EF and I was SOOO excited about it. It turned out to be among the most disappointing toys I've ever had. Even now, every time I go to finish writing the review, I just get too upset and sad about it! It's silly, but I am still so disappointed that it didn't work the way I thought it would!

Airen, I am definitely the "getter" in my avatar, haha My favorite implements are bare hands, canes, and floggers. I love sharp, stingy feelings.

Those are pretty hard, been there myself too. If it helps, what I do is treat it like a DR, give the pertinent info in the main categories and then tell why I don't care for it in the experience section. As you know, we are asked for a honest review. Doing it that way lets me be honest while not completely bashing the toy to pieces.

The best things about EF are definitely the sense of community and sex positivity. And the free review items! Duh! The worst HAS to be the character limit on the pros and cons...I always have the worst time summarizing everything within the limit! Argh!
