desiresecrets vs. edenfantasys

bunky bunky
In my continued search to find free shipping to Canada (for the quality silicone products I want from Fun Factory, Happy Valley, and Tantus) I came across the site desiresecrets.com, which after reading the fine print, no, did not offer free shipping to Canada, just to the States. Though after giving the site a good look-over, it had some points which edenfantasys might want to consider.

Firstly, it's clear that desiresecrets is a copy-cat site of edenfantasys. The coloring, the layout, the review-affiliate program. It's a copy-cat. However, what desiresecrets has that edenfantasys doesn't, is an automatic 5% off for those who are members. With an automatic 6% and 7% off every Sat. and Sun. These are not huge deals. And certainly not enough for me to shop from them instead, but I think being mindful of what other on-line adult stores are up to is worth keeping track of (especially those who are clearly trying to mimic what edenfantasys has already started).

True. The thing I love about EdenFantasys is that it's ridiculously easy to find an affiliate code on the internet and those provide 15% off. So while the other site might offer automatic 5%, if anyone takes a couple minutes to search Google, you can easily find a 15% off code. Which is definitely nice.

Plus, not to put down their site, but why are they listing penis pumps and cock rings as "gay sex toys"? Last I checked, straight men do love toys too. And this sentence is just downright insulting: "Using this sex toy regularly during several weeks, gay can enlarge his penis."

She's right, use anybody's affiliate code for automatic 15% off OR...
use the buyout function and get 30% off for agreeing to review a product.

Thanks, Bunky - we see people knocking us off (badly) all the time. It's flattering, right?

We do offer tons of promos all the time, and because most people cannot compete with our structure, our ways of doing things - they try to do it a little differently. Instead of copying others, we do what is best for our community. Our affiliate discount definitely beats their offer; but really, it isn't about that - it's about serving our people in a unique and meaningful way.

OH NO!

Does this mean using a penis pump or a cock ring will turn me gay!

I thought I could only get turned gay if I drank out of the same glass as a gay person or used the same toilet! Whew! Thanks for telling me!



(yes, this was supposed to be snarkfilled)

Of course it does. But do not worry, if you have not done those things, you're fine. You are safe. And perhaps you can repent at church.



Sorry, but I love Edenfantasys. I shop at no other sex toy shop. That is why...I try to get them to carry everything that I want so that I can buy it from them. HAHAHA!

Thank you.

In addition to that, I would say that, considering all of the perks that we have here at Edenfantasys, there is no comparison to any other online store (or in-person store, either). There are affiliate codes which give 15% off, like Miss Kay said. As Laurel said, we can always do buy-outs. We also get coupon codes constantly. They also always have sales. And their prices, even without any amount off, are great. Shopping here also gets free shipping at orders over $59. No matter what, you cannot beat that. I just love Edenfantasys (if you cannot already tell..). I prefer the original, not the knock-off.

I've also been offered a discount at check out if I do a survey. I haven't noticed that on every check out, but a couple times.

Yeah, I get those sometimes too, which is cool. 10%, I believe.

I used to be apart of their forums but they sucked so I stopped posting LOL

The similarities were certainly shocking.

Heh, a knock-off! How cute!

Like others have said, EF affiliate codes and the steady stream of promotions and sales make shopping here totally affordable. The funny thing for me is, I'm so used to browsing the site that even if another web retailer is selling a product for a few dollars less, I'll still buy from EF because I trust this site more. I know my stuff will get to me quickly and discreetly and I'll get what I ordered.

If so, then Michele's going to be shocked to hear that I'm happy to be gay.

Ever notice that *all* forms of knock-offs suck, even websites? I quote: "Such subsidiary means of erotic orientation as sex toys are intended for preparing of women genital tracks to sexual intercourse. "

I guess they could use some rockin' EF editors over there, and some folks who know what sex toys are for, because I quote again:

"Men use sex toys for prolonging their ejaculations, maintaining their erections harder, fuller and long lasting."

Oh really? I tend to use my Fleshlight sex toys to get off.

Anywhere in life, when you begin doing something cool people will copy it.

I am not really a twilight fan, but that spawned a ton of copies and knock offs.

I went and checked out the other site and I have to say that I couldn't find a damn thing there, lol. It tried very hard to be well thought out and organized, but was such a huge failboat.

I love EF, and since finding this site I haven't even gone looking at brick and mortar stores really, lol

The one thing I noticed about this site is the lack of reviewers. I really think that gives Eden the larger edge.

As with most copies, it falls short of the original.

Repent at church? I hope you don't mean a Catholic church. They're kind of gay friendly if'n you know what I mean. Oh, yeah, maybe that was too soon

Seriously, I refuse to shop anywhere else. The toys are fabulous, product reviews are great, and the other sites pale in comparison. I find other sites MUCH more difficult to navigate and find that the product provision isn't nearly as impressive.

Though, however, I would like to see some new arrivals. The BDSM/Fetish section has the same things they did when I started reviewing about a year ago The same with the vibrators and what not.

Other than that, I have no complaints I love my job and "working" for EF

I was thinking Christian church, but it always depends on the church. There are a lot of congregations now that they feel anything goes, which is how it should be. But what DID you mean? HAHA!

I agree with everything that you said. I do, however, also want some Leatherbeaten stuff to be carried here because I'm really wanting to purchase the Rubber Rita. It would pain me to not be able to buy it here!

Ha ha, you're so bad!

I really love this site too, but I agree - I'd like to see some more new arrivals too. I'd also like to see more Leatherbeaten products too.

Also, with the condoms - I wish more were sold in the larger packs. Like the Eco-friendly Birds & Bees condoms, I'd really like to try those.

I love working for EF too!

You can get your very own affiliate code too. Under dashboard services you can read about how to sign up.

LMAO!!!

I'm not going anywhere! The grass may appear greener on the other side but looks can be deceiving.
Besides, I'm a creature of habit. Once I'm settled and happy in a certain situation, I ain't changing it!

I'm Eden's junkie!

But it is good to keep up with what others are doing.
Like Kayla said - we can use someones affiliate code and get 15% off ya order.
Personally, I haven't had a chance to use a code (since learning of this) cause there's so many coupons lately.
That's DEFINITELY not a complaint...hehehe.

I totally agree. I LOVE EF, and I can't tell you how many of my friends I've encouraged to shop here - and they've all been really happy with their EF experiences. You just CANNOT beat this place!!
