One area I can definitely improve upon is porn reviews. But honestly, I'm lucky if my porn reviews get 7 votes so I don't put as much effort as my toy reviews.

I totally agree with you. I'm branching out (HELLO 02 ADAM!), but that's my first duel density and 2nd realistic!

It seems that with the host of reviews we've picked up (50k+) and the great mentors, this year's batch of reviewers has been amazing!

I'm hoping it's something that keeps on growing and getting better!
I feel like I've seen a lot of improvement even in just the 10 months since I've joined.

I never think to check the porn reviews cause we don't watch porn. Otherwise, I'd probably vote. But I understand what you mean.

I actually like to challenge myself with areas I'm not necessarily comfortable with. However, most of those come as push assignments.

Porn reviews can be tough. It's hard coming up with an angle that no one else has hit.

I also think that, because porn has to cater to a LARGE spread of kinks, very few people are going to love all the porn they review.

I would like to do more of these but they're so expensive.

Didn't you do a review for a pair of candy underwear this year?

I will say mentoring is so much fun and that thrill I got today when I hit "publish" was just awesome -to see a review go through various stages and give feedback, etc.
mentoring is my fave thing. I wish I could have more students at once.

I reviewed some packing underwear, but I plan to eventually do an adult video for the candy bra and thong.

RE porn reviews: I have a hard time writing the porn club ones sometimes because they just don't interest me. It's not like it's a defect of the film itself, it's just missing elements I like. What should I focus my reviews on then?

Hey - with the dildo picture I shared back on page 2 or 3 or whatever - would it be ok to say that its like Tantus "supersized" a realistic cock? Or is that too American and others might not get it?

I would like to review one that has a storyline.

Speaking of mentees, my first one still hasn't given me any reviews
dont worry! my first was a fail, completely. it's not your fault. sometimes there are bad apples.

not saying your is but be prepared, because some are.


write them and let them know you'd like to hear from em at least once a week to know they're still with you. and they can be 'in your class' technically forever, without hurting you in any way. as long as you don't mind. maybe they're on vacation...?

There's "pushing my horizons" and then there's "I'm totally ignorant of this." I think I could do a better job reviewing a countertop than makeup, I just have never used makeup and have nothing to compare quality to, or what kind of expectations to have.

New restraints or impact toys? Sure, I'll give it a try! Lipstick? Better off giving it to someone who will appreciate it.

That's a toughy too.

Focus on what you did like, I guess. Maybe compare two scenes you liked? That can be hard too. There was one porn I was reviewing and I didn't care much for any of it.

Will you be having any spots open up in January? Or is my writing too difficult to deal with since I'm not overly scientific and do more of a story approach?

Porn reviews take me the longest by far, and I agree, they don't get as many votes.

I think porn reviews would be challenging for me, as well...

I also think that, when it's reviews for the Porn Club, random passers-by are going to read maybe the first two or three reviews that publish, and then kind of say "yeah, I already know how that one goes" and not bother to read the rest that post.

I don't really do makeup either, although I would like to try the bath stuff.

A lady after my own heart. I'm not a fan of makeup myself. I always seem to get it in my mouth somehow.

But, to each their own.

just try to be objective, like you would if you were writing a DR. if it's not specifically for YOU, you can still write an informative review, and state your personal opinion at the end.
