I write from my bed, but ITA, if I am being lazy and only have the pictures I took, it will NOT go well, but if I can hold it while I write, I remember so much more!

3-4 is good

we just don't want miles of 5 minute videos where the person goes "um...this toy is good" a lot.

Green tea really helps me focus.

Not in any kind of "it's got antioxidants" or health reasons cockamamie way---just that I've conditioned myself to say "green tea means get down to work" so I do.

hmmm... not sure if everyone saw this so i'll post it again.


1. Write reviews with the product in sight. It’s good to be able to pick it up, feel it, turn it if possible, and examine it.


2. If unsure how to begin, I like to fill out the tags for each section of the Extended review.
The tags will help you think about the features of the toy and get you ready for writing about them.


3. It’s also helpful to read over other reviews on the same product. This way you get ideas on what to add and some inspiration on what to write.

There's something wrong if she's spending all day at home with a dildo and talking as if it's alive.

This is actually what I tell my students to do also. And test it during the review Which I do for vibrators and plugs.

I just gave it a quick glance, some of the wording is odd. Like saying she does him and he does her. Its kind of just weirdly put. I really dont think you need to do a scene by scene. I sometimes write about a few scenes but I think it gets too spoilery when people do it each scene by scene. I think you can lose a bit of the play by play too and summarize it in a neater way.

There's been a few times when I was trying to come up with a review on a dildo or something. I caught myself playing with it like an action figure. It helps. Not just with dildos either...

They are good video reviews on the ones that I've watched. I haven't watched all of them yet, but I enjoyed the ones I watched. The one that really sticks out was the one you mentioned traveling and the toy came on and your hubby was looking around to see what the noise was. That's happened to me before when carrying them in my bag.

I'll have to find some time to sit down and do some brainstorming!

This is true.

However, when you play with it for 30 minutes - until your adult daughter comes over and stands over you and says, "write the review or I take the toy away..."....you know you've played with it too much.

Ditto on the flexibility/firmnesss. It's HUGE for me!

Sometimes when I have writer's block I'll use the toy again to sort of refresh my memory on what I want to write about. Sometimes I also think of new things to say.
