If I were to buy a product with a lower safety rating (such as plastic over silicone) I would highlight the lesser safety in a review but wouldn't rate lower solely based on that. I think it is a tad unfair. Like rating down a dildo because it doesn't vibrate.

I agree with this.

I don't rate based upon material since if the person is going to buy that, they are probably aware of the fact anyway (but I do bring it up in review). I rate based upon how well the toy performs.

I totally agree with this.

I would rate a product with a safer material a little higher, just because a safer material seems like an extra little bonus.

The material is a huge factor me. I can barely even bring myself to try toys that don't have a safety rating of 6 or more.

I may buy something based on it's material but I wouldn't review it better or worse because of it. It just is what it is and I'll discuss that in the review but if I downgrade a product it is because of the ability of the product its self. Granted it is very true that some materials absorb vibrations where others carry them so material can effect the ability of said product.

When I purchase or request a product for review, I always look to check the material before purchasing. There is no way I would rate a product down just because it was rubber and not silicone. That just doesn't seem fair. You should know what you are getting yourself into before purchasing a toy. Do the research and don't downgrade because of the material when you requested or bought the product knowing what the material was.

I'm with Airekah!

I don't rate down or up depending on the material. I know exactly what the material and safety rating is before I get an item so there's no reason for down rating it.
Besides, some of the most realistic feeling toys are rated lowest on safety and they actually get some of the highest ratings from me!

I think about it but don't necessarily factor it into my rating. I also mention it in my review.

I think it all does factor into my rating of a product, but not by much.



For instance, I just wrote a review on the Kissa and it still got 1-star, even though it is made of glass and plastic.



I think it really depends on how the material affected my use of the product. Was it glass, but it was really hard to clean and painful and dulled in vibration? Well, sounds like despite the glass, the product was a dud for me.

Was it a lower-safety material, but it performed wonderfully and has become my go-to toy? Well, 5-stars it is!

I always mention the material in the review, because I do think it is important for people to make their purchasing decision with all the info. And rather than just a material, I get to comment on what I thought about how it performed with this material... if that makes sense.
