THIS!

I TOTALLY agree. There could be a time limit on it. Like 30 days after the first review is when we should be allowed.

I love your photo reviews, but I can certainly understand if you choose to stop putting yourself out there.

Photos of the garment laying flat are still useful, especially when the model wasn't shown from behind, or there's a feature you can show close up. And showing the tape measure across the bust and waist is helpful too.

Well from now on when I see 2" - I'm saying "NO WAY".

Yes - I can stretch that big - but have decided against it.

However - I can hit hubby over the head with it!

I do have to say I've seen a couple of your lingerie reviews, the pictures help immensely. (I'm on the larger side of an hourglass.) Even though I'm not that into lingerie, I'm thinking about eventually getting some to make my significant other happy.

I think it's noteworthy and brave when people show themselves (with or without their faces) in video reviews or in written reviews. I understand privacy, but it's a big boost to the ego when you get compliments.
It is a big boost. I think I will work on that when rating reviews as well. Putting something meaningful instead of my usual great review, but honestly sometimes everything I want to say/ask has already been said.

I don't get why ... More
Haha, no, I really think you should! You're definitely solid in your opinion (and really, for those, I was too, I was just shy and had to work up the nerve first. And like especially with Ina, heck, I think that got like 50 votes. People need to read the negative reviews... they're just no fun for me to write

2 inches, sounds so small, but in terms of diameter inside my vagina...maybe not. Before I bought my first realistic dildo, the Tantus VIP, i was like, Cool average sized dildo. Then I got it and I was like

Hunny, they are not voting because of the pictures of you - I get useful votes as well. I'm sure it's a different reason. Can't please everyone. There are still plenty of people voting wrong, anyways... based on their lure of the product. They might be voting that way because of any number of reasons.

Thanks. I guess for the next few I'll continue to do the photos and try to get some thick skin that doesn't add extra weight!

Stay as an editor - you were my favorite.

Oh - about YOUR reviews?

Antipova - I wish you'd do more video reviews - I really enjoy those.

Yeah, sort of the same thing for me. I was expecting a large dildo with the Jeff Stryker cock O_O, it certainly was an eye-opener. I can take it, just not all of it (lengthwise).

There are also serial "somewhat useful" voters out there.

Ooh, those annoy me greatly, a full on great review and BAM, a low vote. I've even gotten a random 'worth reading, but not useful' once.

I had mostly gotten slenderish things when I was new... I think the first dildo for me was the Tantus Echo. Luckily it was squishy so it wasn't too bad...

and then I just threw all care to the wind, and said "If they're smaller I can use them any time, if they're bigger I can use them during stretchy times of the month," and just go after what textures and shapes look interesting, no matter what size. And now the Echo is ... not the biggest thing in my collection anymore

I agree...and it hurts when you know they're not really reading the review. But thick skin and all that.
