We are looking at updating the intro since the one in use now is the original and a change would be nice but, unfortunately, we can't please everyone.

I am sorry you dislike it so intensely. With luck you'll like the new one better -- though it's not a high priority project so we'll likely have to deal with the old one a bit longer!

I am a bit sick of the music, but I never thought about it being changed. I usually skip the intro when watching vids. It'd be cool if it had a few different silhouettes of couples of different types. But, I don't think much needs to be changed.

I kinda like the music. At least, it's become familiar, and it's not grating at all. I like that it's kinda subtle, and I really like that there aren't lyrics or anything. Intros with lyrics become irritating much more quickly that intros without lyrics.

Request for future intro to be on the subtle side as well, and also without vocals?

Doesn't bother me really. If I'm watching a lot of videos one after another I find myself saying "come on intro hurry up already". Otherwise I think it's not bad. The music does not really bother me, what is it about the music that bothers you?

I think if any changes were to be made I could see a selection of a few different intros, each one with its own unique design/sound. I am really glad that there are no lyrics or a sing a long, that would drive me nuts.

true.. it'd be nice to do a new one that just highlighted sex toys. a boy/girl in a relationship for every single video is a bit much.


when i post videos, i make the music for my vid cover the intro. because yes, i know folks get tired of the same song.

I agree and it is way too long! I didn't notice the first few reviews I watched, but now it drives me crazy! I always mute it till the review starts.

Yep, I agree with the above. The image is one thing, but the music is especially annoying; I usually mute my speakers until the intro is over.

I just hate jingle-y music in general. It's more the graphic that drives me wacko, because it's just such a reflection of what mainstream society idolizes- skinny heterosexuals in love. I agree that something more neutral or more variety in intros would be nice.

You make a good point. Being more inclusive would be a positive thing!

I like the music itself just fine, but it's kind of loud - usually a lot louder than the rest of the video. As for the image, it doesn't bother me too much, but something featuring toys or a more general "garden" (of Eden) theme would be a lot better.

The music can be edited out by the reviewer.

Yeah I find it kind of loud too. My last video review or 2 I actually decided to turn the volume of the music down on the intro just a little so it didn't blare so loudly.

I totally understand the need and reason for having it, and it lends a consistency to all the reviews. If they change it, I'll use the new one no problem!

I actually always thought the person on the right could be either male or female. Guess it's all perspective!

I like the intro to be a little shorter.
