Go through the EF site, looking for products with less than 3 reviews on them. Give the item numbers to your mentor to contact justin to request them.

Occasionally, we may push stuff to students, but not often.

Make sure your mentor gives justin the item number, not the link. That just adds an extra step for him.

Any review that is honest and covers the topics isn't "bad". If you prefer something stronger than wait for something else

Did you go up for voting while in her class? Did she graduate you?

I think you only get one a month, but you can see if one is available on the manufacturer sponsored list

Hmm, that's up to you I say. Your review isn't bad if you covered all the details, even if the product itself was less than fantastic. If you think this other toy will work better for you, there's no harm in getting it to try it out and if it doesn't work out then go ahead and tell us why. As long as you're not blatantly bashing the company or saying things like "this toy sucked because this company made it" there's nothing wrong with saying you didn't like it

It looks like you're a Reviewer, Adv. Reviewer.

When she's done and ok's it, you'll be advanced

The review was my first assigned one, and it was aproved. I would never bash a company, that would be so wrong on so many levels. I was honest in what it did for me. But I am curious about the other one, so thank you.

Some toys just have less powerful motors, it happens.

I'd suggest just not accepting that particular style of toy if you don't think you'd like it.

Power levels kinda vary per person. What's weak for one person might not be for another.

When it comes to reviews, just try to find a positive, even if you didn't care much for a toy.

Just like in chemistry: like dissolves like.

If you had it up against another product that was made of the same stuff, bad chemically things happen.
Cool, dry place - a closet, to be precise. In a storage pouch then in a pocket of a briefcase that I use for toy storage for one. The other is evolved's duo obsessions lavish, so it stays in the original packaging in a shelf in the closet. Here's a great pic of the packaging: Evolved Packaging for Duo Obsessions Lavish

That's cool...

One thing that I've seen a lot of issues with lately are reviews from students not getting published while in the mentor program.

We have to have tech go through and decline them so they can be resubmitted later.

So, if you're a mentor or a student in a class now... PLEASE make sure all your reviews are published before graduating

Really awesome! Saw lots of whales, sea otters, porpoises... Alaska's a neat place, especially for a swamp/plains-dweller like me

I agree. I also find it helpful when people talk about the steps they've taken in looking for a product that's right for them, whether they be successful or not. That can help others to figure out what they want to look for in a sex toy.

check out other reviews - do the vrooms differ? the batteries it uses (and do NOT think AA is better than AAA - AAA can convert one type of power into another b/c of its' properties so while weaker, technically, because it can convert to another power type, they end up being stronger). Is it literally the same line or just a similar toy? Etc. Also, where is it being used? For example, I don't need nearly as much internal power as clit power. Hell, with glass, I don't need power internally at all!
