Writing wise, I think it only takes two or three days. However, I would recommend experimenting with a toy for at least a week (or two or three) before starting to write.

As I started the review for my most recent toy, the Ultimate Massager, I had started off by saying I only liked a few of the settings. However, after experimenting with it further a few days later, I discovered that I liked other settings, as well. Fortunately, I hadn't published the review yet, so editing it was easy.

I automatically start the review the moment I open the box before I even use it, just describing the initial thoughts on the product. I make notes on the smell, taste, feel, etc of the toy and packaging.

Then I save to draft with it. Then, once I use it the first time, I write a bit more, then use it a few more times to get my final review pieces added. I like to do it in pieces so it isn't as stressful to try and remember all the details from a day or more prior. SOMETIMES, if it is clothing or something like a candle, I might write the whole thing the day of.

It typically does not take me a terribly long time.. maybe a few days.. It depends on if I am busy
Ryuson Ryuson
It really depends on the toy! Some I have a hard time writing (it doesn't really depend on my feelings about the toy) and sometimes it just flows! My most recent one I'm working on I've had for 24 hours but I love it and I'm almost half done, but some I just drag my feet through and I don't know why!

It depends on how much time I have to test it out. I think a new toy should be test driven a few times before making a final analysis of it.
TameTemptress TameTemptress
I want to be sure to use it a few times and get a feel for it. Lingerie, I want to wash/wear a few times to see how it holds up. Once I start writing, it doesn't take long...but it takes me a few days/weeks to get started writing depending on how busy I am and what it is.

That's how I like to do reviews, as well.

I do it the way Peggi describes. As soon as I open that box, I've got a pen and paper in my hand writing first impressions. If it's waterproof, when it's time for my shower that suckers getting tested and will write my thoughts about that after I'm done. Then I use it that night with my hubby and write notes about how it worked with both of us and his impressions. Then I take all my notes I have on pen/paper and write in MS Word into the format that is needed for reviews.

Anywhere from 3 to 7 days for a toy, a week or more for most books. If I don't like a toy, I play with it more, if I love a toy, I try to find more ways to love it.

I generally only sit and write for like an hour, which means ive done a few days to a week or more prep time considering what im going to write, etc.

I like to take the whole month on products I pick out. Unless they just end up being crap. A lot of the products that they chose to send me, don't take a lot of time to test out and review. Those tend to only need a week or less.

I get pretty busy at times. Other times I'm pretty distraca

I use my toy at least a couple times before I write a review of it. I don't like writing it right away because it doesn't let me be honest and objective with my review.
Clandestine Clandestine
I like to test the toys a number of times before writing a review... At the very least, five times, and on separate days because there are lots of factors that affect usage and response.

Even though I have a lot of free time, I don't always feel up to using toys (or doing anything sexual in nature). As a result, it takes me more than two weeks after receiving a product to write the review. I had already used a number of products when I had joined, so I had plenty of review material.

Luckily for me, I've finished testing my last purchases, and a new one is arriving pretty soon.

I'm new to the review thing, and I've tested the Eden wipes several times before writing about them. So I went with the 5-14 day timeline. That way, you get used to the toy and cover most/all topics on it.

i like to use to toy or product alot of times before i review it. different ways or places.. it takes me awhile to figure out how i want to explain things.
js250 js250
We look forward to receiving our items so much, we usually try them out immediately and then for hours at a time!! A few times!! I write the review when I get comfortable with the item, sometimes the next day sometimes a week from getting it.

I write about 5 reviews a week, but last week doubled up on those. I review most days out of the month. I take off the weekends, or double up a day, so I can relax the next day. I am going to slow down, since I am about to publish my 99th review. I have to make my video for my 100th review

Depends on my schedule.

It depends on how much time I have. I try to get assignments done fast, within two weeks, but I also try to test the product out thoroughly before I review it.
Lickable Lollie Lickable Lollie
Most of the time I start writing right away too...I try to put the most information about things that don't involve my experience, then add that part later because I know that it can be different for everyone so that's not really that important. What's important is how it works!

It depends on the item. I can write a lingerie review the week I get it, but toys tend to take longer. So I went with 5 to 14 days, on average.

I think I'm a nerd, I'll actually take notes about a product even before I get. Mostly bullet points on things I want to test with the toy and things I'm confident I want to mention.

When I get my shipment, I grap my pen, pad, and camera, and take pictures and notes.

Then I'll use them for a while, take notes, then write my review.

I guess it's the science in me

I start thinking what I can put in my review from the moment I open the box and then go from there.
AHubbyof2SexualMinds AHubbyof2SexualMinds
For me it take somewhere between a week and two weeks. I like to try and test things at least twice before I do a review on it and with a toddler in the house it usually takes a week or so for us to be able to use something twice.

depends on how busy I am
ToyGeek ToyGeek
It depends on the product. Some take just a use or two, others take longer. If I don't like a toy the first time I use it, I feel obligated to go back and give it another chance or two before reviewing, because sometimes a product's best use isn't its intended use, or I was in the wrong mood for the product the first time, etc.
