Why I stay at EdenFantasys - Long term commitment to the best

Dragon Dragon
There have been a few times recently when I've been asked why I stay at Eden Fantasies if I'm so unhappy here? I've been called a trouble-maker and a attention seeker. When I was the most frustrated with Eden recently, I asked for help understanding why I want to make it better. I didn't get it. I got enough nastiness that I wanted to completely walk away from Eden. I also learned a few more things that I didn't like.

So I did some thinking and I did some research. As consumers, you buy a product because of price/quality. You stop because it's too expensive for the quality or for ethical/moral reasons. My problems with Eden have to do with communication and honesty.

I have been with Eden a long time. Except for one local store, I do not shop at any other store, nor do I review for any other stores. I thought about if it would be the right decision to walk away. Leaving Eden would not make it a better company. For me, I'm not leaving for two reasons. It's a relationship, and relationships require work. I'm not a quitter.

The reason that is relevant to everyone is that I believe Eden is the best online sex toy store there is.

Several people have mentioned that I should review for another company. I looked around at the other online shops. I looked at products sold that I'm familiar with. I looked for a reviewer presence- onsite, not offsite merely on blogs, I looked for sex-forums. From the web-site alone, there is nothing that compares. Eden sells a very good product, at what I believe is a good price with a lot of convenience. I know my way around the site.

From the research that I've done, I would not be surprised if Eden is the #1 in online sex-toy sales. They have a very strong internet presence and I believe they are working hard to actively build it. I'm impressed that someone at Eden understands this as well as they appear to. Many policies make sense in light of this business objective.

I'm loyal to Eden. Loyal to Eden without incentives for frequent buyer or credit for being a higher- ranked reviewer. (Minor changes in the policy recently do acknowledge rank, but that was after I started this.) It doesn't matter. I have my own sense of commitment, because I've decided that the company is actually the best out there- even with their flaws.

I've recently seen some very substantial improvements in the company including a better communication of some of the reviewer policies. There have been many others since the time of my first review. I have hope that there will be others.

Can you say that you stay at Eden for any reason more than just liking free toys?

(In light, of some prior experience on the forum, I asked a Eden staff member for objections to posting this.)

You do have a relationship with Eden so remember not to be a fair weather friend.

I've never wavered in my dedication nor my commitment with this company, I've been here since 2007 and I've loved them since the very first fated purchase. Yes, the free toys are an incentive to keep reviewing but I get so much more than just a new product to test. I impact a customer's purchase and that's satisfaction enough for me. Just knowing that someone bought something or didn't buy something from my recommendation alone is enough to keep me coming back for more.

I love to write and I love interacting with people, especially when it comes to any and all discussions about sex. The fact that this e-tailer has grown from just reviews but to a community with daily discussions and the sharing of knowledge/experience is titillating. There have been major improvements and constant growth which has resulted in greater satisfaction from the majority of reviewers who have been here since the beginning or near beginning of the review program.

I will say this though, to truly be loyal means to stick with a friend even if they have rough times, we don't get to pick what happens in relationships and we don't get to choose when and how if we'll be there for that friend. If a friend doesn't show up for a luncheon or doesn't call when they promised to, we don't immediately threaten to not be involved with them anymore. I know you've had a lot of dissatisfaction with Eden and I understand a lot of your concerns. While personally I haven't shared a lot of your feelings, I do get it. If you do stay this time around than stay for the right reasons. You've shared a lot of what I firmly believe in this post- that Eden has a great presence, great prices, and their community is the best.

I look forward to reading all your reviews to come.

I don't think I was a fair weather friend or that I was "threatening to leave." Several people asked me why I stayed, and made me feel that I should leave. I felt that my opinions were not welcome in the forum as well. I needed to address this in my own way, space and time.

Your opinions are always welcome, please never feel like they aren't. I think that's the great thing about EF- that we really strive to make this an open environment that encourages full and active participation from everything.

Ciao. Ciao.
Sleeping Dreamer hits it on the head...at least for me. There are lots of great incentives to stick around at Eden Fantasys, but this store creates what few other places do: a community that makes shopping for sex toys about as interactive, dynamic, and positive as it can get. I've been nothing but satisfied with the site and the community created here. I know some people may disagree (and even rightfully so) but I think this is an excellent sex positive place to come and shop as well as talk.

I agree with Sleeping Dreamer too and I also get what you are saying and have been saying. I will never suggest that anyone should leave and I really don't think it's fair for others to do so. Honestly, I don't want to see anyone leave because there are so many that I have come to rely on for suggestions and opinions. Sometimes things can so easily be taken the wrong way though too.

As far as EF goes, you're right, they are the best out there! I haven't seen any others that even closely compare! I love this place! =)

I definitely need sleep, I'm a habitual insomniac. I sleep very little. Peppermint sounds so good right about now!

I am not here for the free toys. I am here because I can have adult interaction when hubby dearest is going to be gone. I have a purpose, I have something here to keep me occupied. Last time he was gone I was at home in TN with my full time job and the same life I had for years. This time I am 1500 miles away from everything and everyone I have known. I like that here being a reviewer didn't require me to be able to speak Spanish. Sorry, I am a little irritated with the whole to do anything in El Paso knowing Spanish is a necessity. Anyway, being able to come to the forum, and share my opinions and experiences serves many purposes for me, and free toys being the least important.

I, too did some looking around and was denied the right to review toys by one new site cause I didn't have a "stable" relationship with my husband! We've been married more or less happily for 20+ years but that's not the point, I have a lover and he isn't micro focussed on me! The shipping is fast, inexpensive and the toys are high quality. The people are friendly and even in dispute seem to want to be sure they don't hurt feelings. That makes this the best place to be as far as I am concerned.
Eden Fantasys stated to me their main objective was to become a leading force for safe sex practices and a community for sex positive people. Score on both sides I say!
