Ever try a toy once or twice and aren't enthused, but by the third or fourth you love it? How many times do you use a toy before reviewing?

I can relate to getting a product and disliking it at first, but then warming up to it after several uses. I try to wait at least 3 or 4 uses before reviewing.

I try to get in at least three or four uses before deciding, unless the initial experience is so incredibly bad that I can't stand to try again.

Agreed.

I usually try to give it at least 3-5 tries before I can solidify an opinion on it.

I think that it really depends! If it's a basic bullet it will take me a lot less time than if it's an insertable toy! The number of patterns also adds to the time it takes me to make a decision.

Some toys REALLY impress you from the get-go. Most, we've found, take a few times to get a good feel for it.

I've had 2 perhaps that have been WOW from first use. While others take 2-4 times to find the right positions etc.

Usually the first or second time. If I don't feel for it right away, I'll patiently try the toys at different angles and movements. The Pure Plug is the ONLY toy that provided instant stimulation!

I usually know if I love or hate a toy after the first or second time I use it, but I still play around with it in different ways and get to know it better after a few more uses.

I use a toy for a minimum of four hours, love or hate it. After about 8-10 hours of use, I have figured out how I like to use it, if I love or hate it and how reliable, issues it may have, etc.

I have to use it at least twice. The last thing I reviewed was great the first time, but started to deteriorate by the second time.

I think it depends very much on the specific toy, but I don't have enough thoughts to write a review until at least 2 uses. Often more, but that's my minimum!

I try a toy at least 3 times before I write the review, but I usually have a good idea of how I'll like it after the first time. It's very rare that I go from loving a toy to hating it, or vice versa. I find that the little annoyances start to stand out more after multiple uses, like buttons that get bumped accidentally, or something along those lines.

I usually have a good idea about how i'll like the toy after 1 use, but I try it quite a few times to find all the kinks in it, find out what could be improved, ect.

3 or 4 times then I would decide whether I like it or not. Without knowing exactly what I was buying I got an expensive one, it's just a bit intimidating to me. That was months before I go active on EF. I kept the toy and I will try again later.

3-4, I have never done a review. I'm sure in the future I will.

It depends on the item for me. Insertables I take my time with, but vibrators I know when they are in my hand if I like them.

We have known without trying that a toy was too big, or too rough, and never tried it. Others, after ONE run, we went "yuk". Never see's the light of day again. Most toys we "enjoy" or think have possibility, get a good 3 or 4 uses before retiring to the closet or joining the nightstand "favorites"!!!

Depends on the item, with bath and body products i can usually get a good feel for it within trying it 2-3 times with other products i like about 4 times.

I only use silicone dildos so it only takes once to get a feel for it.
