I would say what you know and don't be to concerned about offending folks. If it helps, just state that you only used it "this way" and you are not to sure about other ways of using it. For instance, you mention not know about anal toys but I am sure you know that a toy for anal use should have a safe base, right? In this case you could say "This toy is not recommended for anal play since it does not have a base" or "This toy could be also used for anal play but I did not use it this way" Same could be said about harness compatible toys.
But honestly, you should enjoy writing the reviews. When a review becomes a chore you are not being yourself since all these thought are running through your head. Say what you want to say as long as you are happy with your work.
Tim and the others make a lot of sense. You can briefly mention activities you don't engage in, but of course, don't review toys you wouldn't use. (Say, don't review a butt plug, as you wouldn't use it, y'know? I don't review things like harnesses and pegging toys, because I'm clueless on how to use them, and I think a review written by me about these things would be fairly unhelpful.) I stick with toys I DO use, of course branching out, but only to toys I will
As Tim said, you can mention whether a toy is anal safe or not, even if you don't use it that way, but I wouldn't review an anal toy, unless you are using it. (I've seen people review toys they don't use and.... well, you know.)
As for it being a chore, you know enough about the toys you use
to write really good reviews. Stay with what you know, occasionally adding a new activity, if you want to. Don't try anal just
to write a review on a probe, only try anal only because you want to
, if you don't
want to try it, that's OK, too!
Use the knowledge you have, and always be open to new experiences. That will lead to good reviews. If there's an activity you know
you will never engage in, that's OK, too. Just know where your strong points are and use those to your advantage, always being open minded.
