Niice order. Which plug did you get and which type of sliquid? I <3 sliquid (I use the organics gel). And anal toys are one of my true loves.

they only have the sliquid organics in sample size right now, I own sliquid sea and love it

I got the iridescent plug, just a little baby toy to explore if I like it or not.

This is a good way to think about what information you would like to add.

I know reviews have a lot of basic things required like size, shape, material, and care, but we can all go above and beyond that with different uses and experiences.

A good way to do it would be to make a small outline of all the things you want to point out as you go, and then elaborate on each particular thing.


I know quite a few people actually take a few days to write reviews because they proof them over, but more on that later

What works for you guys? I know I think about what I want to say in my review as I use things as well, heh

These are really good questions to ask.

I know as I'm testing something out, I'm always asking "What do I have to say about this that hasn't been said before?" and "What really makes this product different from others that someone might be looking at?"

Asking what they need to know, and how my experiences will help them, would be really useful for me in the future.

I'm one of those people who takes days to write reviews. I don't see how anyone could spit one out in under an hour.

So far I keep notes after using it each time, and once it first arrives, my mentor gave me a list of things to think about when doing a review on different types of toys.

I also try to qualitatively describe how things feel---like what makes the Tantus Motion feel so incredible compared with other thrusting dildos. There's a lot more to sex toys than just "it fits" or "it doesn't fit," or "it feels good" or "it doesn't feel good."

We note some basics when we open the package (like smell, etc) and then play with it the first time without noting anything. That lets us get into the product and get impressions without thinking about what we're *supposed* to be noticing. Then the next time/s we use it, we note things afterward.

Really? Good heavens, I focus on getting-off. The details come during the postmortem.

Quoting delicious surprise from B8tr's thread:


Hyphen -
En dash --
Em Dash —

Em Dashes are for pauses in thought, parenthetical statements, or afterthoughts (I told you that I didn't want—)

En Dashes are for range (He reigned from 1969–1982)

Hyphens are for word breaks and hyphenations (T-Rex, post-production)



She says it well, the link I have for that isn't working.

I still have a hard time figuring out when to properly use that --- but I think I'm getting the hang of it


And I have Sliquid Splash and I love it!

I have a few in hold right now because I feel like they are missing something I'm going to give them a few days and make sure.

Same here. I wash everything before first use, so taking some basic notes during the unwrapping isn't an issue. However, when I try it out I'm focused on the fun.

Haha! I definitely test things more than once! I can only keep my mind on the toy occasionally, the rest of the time I'm with you.

This is the reason I LOVE having a mentor. She's a great sounding board when I'm looking for how to improve my reviews.

I guess you all have a good point with the whole enjoying it the first time thing.

I guess I'm just too much into reviewing, it's almost second nature to me to note certain things as I go, lol.


I know that it is harder for me to write a review on something I don't like vs something I like, it's almost like the motivation just isn't there if I don't care for something.

Love all the suggestions, and love the blind person thing sexyintexas!

All this time I thought En dashes were hyphens.
