EdenCommunity: It's not just a me thing, baby! - Click here to read this great article by sktb0007!



In her article, sktb0007 talks about her experiences with reviewing and the community. She's recently become comfortable enough to start doing video reviews for us and has an astounding set of reviews in her portfolio. She's also in and out of the forums all day answering questions and engaging others in conversation. If that wasn't enough, she's a pretty sweet lady, too!

She is one face in a crowd of many, many contributors here at EF. And our motto is - the more the merrier! The stronger our community is, the more we can accomplish in establishing sex toys as a standard and common item in households everywhere. Let's face it, sex is beautiful and we have the ability to orgasm and understand the sensations and how to duplicate them and even translate the physical response of orgasm into emotional responses as well. Why not celebrate it and enjoy it?

Usually these posts are pretty general, asking for opinions on key issues in life. This week, let's talk about Edenfantasys as a community and what we've managed to accomplish and how each of has played a role in the successes at EF.

Which programs do you participate in? How did you get involved? Share your stories!

And to have some fun with this, if you could design a toy of your very own what would be the top three requirements? Is it a vibrator, a dildo, a harness, a swing...etc?

That was a great article, sktb0007!!!

I have a few roles here on Eden, though I'm sure not as many as some. I'm a reviewer and just started doing descriptive reviews recently, I'm also having a turn as an editor and am in the Birthday Club. While I've never won a rumble, I've been ever so honored to have been nominated, and I've won a Name That Toy contest (the very first one I entered!). I have considered becoming a mentor... but perhaps I'll do that in the future.

When it comes to participating more on Eden (forums/reviews/etc), I wasn't actually active until this past December. I have purchased from Eden before becoming more involved (actually, my very first purchase was way back in 2008!), and it did take some time before I decided to start writing reviews back in the beginning of February. Now I don't see why I waited so long! I am seriously on this site every single day... mostly "window shopping" and reading articles or forum posts. If I wasn't a part of the Eden community, I probably wouldn't even turn my laptop on.

As for designing my very own toy... well, I wouldn't know where to start. I've been able to get some pretty awesome toys that I don't think I could come up with anything better. Well, unless it was something self-cleaning, or emptied the dishwasher or the cat litter box for me. What would be awesome would be a toy like the Shake Weight on an episode of South Park that said encouraging things ("You're so lovely, you're the best I ever had, every thing you say is so interesting", etc) then spit out cab fare. That would be awesome!

While the Ambassador program was in place, I was an active blogger for Eden Ambassador's. I have also written a Fantasy.

I was a student once, though I wish I had been one before I became an advanced reviewer. Kindred was an awesome mentor.

I also have been a mentor to MANY people, and I still am. I LOVE mentoring. It gives new people a 'safe place' on the site to ask questions, and it allows people on a short budget to still get to be an advanced reviewer with the sponsored assignments.

I was a part of the book club before it shut down! I wasn't as much a participant for my love of erotica (though I do see more of 'the point' now) but for the friendships and conversations. None of the current clubs really appeal to me.

I've done quite a few video reviews, and I have done 131 written reviews, making me a milestone reviewer. I LOVE reviewing because I feel like I help a lot of people, while getting to try new things in the process. If not for Eden I probably would still only have one or two so-so vibrators, and I would still have the same three pieces of lingerie. I also do DRs, which are my favorites because they're always a surprise! (though I had my first declined one this week, my boyfriend freaked about me getting a harness.)

My perfect toy would be my Bandito (Fun Factory) with my Ali'se (NS Novelties) motor.

There's the writing articles for Sexis (although not officially,if that's what the question meant), being a part of the editing program, eden cafe, reviews, I'm getting ready to join Eden Lit (getting some works together) and just became a mentor.

Me likey words.

I'm not sure if it really costs 10 times as much to earn a new customer than keep an existing one, but eden really goes the extra mile to keep us here.

I have done so many things, reviews, videos, DR's, work shops (Forgot that one, eh? ), Mentor, Club manager and pride my self as the resident pyro and destroyer of toys-for science of course. I spend more time here in the forums than any other place be it FB, Twitter or other site. Ya, I love Eden!

One of my favorite things about Eden is helping people, whether it be talking about a toy for a boyfriend/husband, giving advice on how to use a toy or even just providing a shoulder to lean on, all of this make me feel all warm and fuzzy. I am so happy to help anyone I can.

Design a toy, eh? I want a finger shaped toy, it should preform a "Come Here" movement that the speed can be controlled and it must have deep rumbly vibes.

I am a reviewer, a descriptive reviewer, I was part of the original pool of Eden tasks editors, I am club manager of Eden Lit, I was club manager of Eden Screenwriters, I am a mentor (by request), I have won contributor of the month, I've won several review rumbles, I've written for Eden Cafe and SexIs, I'm a birthday club member, I've sat in on photography club meetings, I've read and commented on the DIY club meeting, I am part of the milestones club (300+ reviews), I was a member of the Naked Readers, and I am generally poking around everywhere and being a general nuisance.

I wish I had the courage and freedom to do video reviews or even adult reviews! I was promoted to advanced reviewer before the mentor program existed and became a mentor when the program was brand new.
I am a rabid EF fan and have brought quite a few people to the website!

I'm all over the place with the exception of video reviews. I don't have any equipment to do video reviews, but I'd love to do normal video reviews one day. I love Eden and how they have opened me up personally, emotionally, and sexually.

I am just a contributor. I see myself as having a background role. I don't want to be a writer, but I can be a cheerleader for those of you that do. I also see myself as a buyer and promoter of toys. I am a happier more content person since I incorporated sex toys in my life and if I can help someone else find a toy or 2 (or more) that could do that for them of course I want to help!

My concept for a toy design is to create a dildo with "handle bars" so that my wife can penetrate me anally with a dildo while I'm penetrating her in a missionary position.

That's another really awesome thing about EF, huh? You can participate in as much or as little as you like and we never can have too many cheerleaders!

Hahaha, that toy sounds awesome. It makes me so happy to see everything you've participated in around here! The workshops and the EGB activities are not forgotten, if even not on the list.

We have something similar...Lauren reviewed it, I think. It's like a reverse thigh master.

What a lovely poll! It shows just how many things there are to do here at EF. There is a place (or multiple places) for everyone! It's easy to get involved with so many ways to do it. Thanks for that, Eden!

Personally, I have written reviews, been a mentor, worked with Eden Tasks, am a member of the Birthday Club, and have won a Rumble. I will be hosting a Rumble in a few months. Oh, and something not listed here...I have a personal store too. I spend most of my time online here at Eden.

As for a toy...well, glass is my favorite, so it would be a glass dildo with curves and nubs. The circumference would be 4.5" or less, and it would have lots of color in its design. It would also come with a nice, thickly padded storage bag!

I love Eden, I'm on like everyday. I've written 3 reviews this year and want to continue to add to Eden. I love reading other reviewers opinions and ideas for how to use toys.

My idea For a great toy would be something like the G-Ki. have stronger motors, have the ability to turn the motors on or off separately/alternating . I love the adjust-ability of the toy.
