Partner participation in reviews. Do you ever feel guilty?

closed account closed account
Sometimes I feel like I am giving my partner the third degree afterwords to get his feedback. I also feel sometimes with certain products that I am pushy about trying them out ASAP.

I feel guilty like I could be taking some of the spontaniety out of our sex life. Yet at the same time, this has been a great opportunity for us to explore new horizons, test our boundaries, and stock our toybox like we wouldn't be able to otherwise.

I only feel guilty because the toys for men SUCK. Seriously, they suck. He's not interested in sitting around with plugs up his bum or cock harnesses that pinch testicles.


I would LOOOVE to see something that could be placed on the penis that creates a gentle, constant stimulation that doesn't actually get him off. We've resorted to dressing him up and other things to add a taboo aspect to his side of the game.

I have never felt guilty, I always wait till the next day to ask her about the experience. I have felt some frustration though, like when I get a new toy for us to try out and we have to wait for some reason.

There have been times that I've been asking him for his feedback during use, and shortly thereafter. But I always make sure he knows I'm planning on doing something like that before we start. For the most part, I'll wait until the next day and I try not to get pushy with him, although he's been pretty enthusiastic about everything we've tried so far, so I haven't ever had to push very hard.

I don't feel guilty. He knows what's in all the packages, and will often ask what's new to try before we start. He's pretty good about giving his opinion one of the times we use something before I write the review.

My husband absolutely loves that I am reviewing sex toys. he does not mind me asking his input after something, and actually - now that I am doing this, he goes so far to ask me when am I planning on reviewing it so he can tell me his input.

My wife and I both are members here at Eden. We both try to puut our words into the reviews to give everyone else the best advise on the products. It is a beautiful way for us to explore each others thoughts and feelings even though we disagree at times. Maybe trying to let your partner share the review even if your partner doesn't want to be a member. It would benefit the community and you might find that it will benefit your relationship as it has mine!

yah, i'll admit sometimes i ask during, but that is also for personal sexual reasons of needing feedback on something we are doing for the first time.
he is supportive and enthusiastic about me being on EF. (even supportive of my new blog) Every time we do try something out, I do want to have sex, and I do want to try it from a sexual standpoint. the review is just the bonus.

so i change my vote....no guilt

I definitely feel like I get pushy with my girlfriend sometimes to use toys with me and give feedback for reviews. I know she doesn't mind, but I can't help feeling funny about it sometimes.

My wife doesn't have any interest in reviewing toys. I'm the toy fan in our house.

I don't think I'm pushy when is comes to trying toys with my boyfriend, but he has no interest in them whatsoever. He is willing to try them with me for me, but otherwise he could care less.

No guilt, but I buy toys that I think my b/f will enjoy as well.
When he travels, he usually surprises me with a toy, something that we both will enjoy even though it is primarily for me.
This is from a guy that was initially intimidated by toys!

I ask my boyfriend for feedback on everything and I use things by myself and with him. It's much easier to write a review when you have the other person's point of view. For example, Good Head was horrible for me but he really enjoyed it so I asked him what he liked about it so we could find something better for both of us (and write a comprehensive review).

He also loves that I'm so willing to try and experiment with things because he is as well.

Not a problem here. He's the one who found the site and seems to be more into it than I am most times.

Not at all. My partner is more than happy to provide feedback and use the toys on me. I don't even have to ask him to use it on me or give me his feedback and personal opinions. He isn't involved with EF or anything like this except for the using them on me part, but he's always very good about helping and plus what could he complain about?! He knows it's always something we use only together. I don't care to use them alone so if he had any kind of complaints about using them on me or giving me his opinion I'd think he was very selfish. I mean if it's going to be used for forplay and then we have sex he's getting a good deal too! lol

Never feel guilty. My guy enjoys using toys on me or watching me use them on myself.

We sit at the computer together doing this. It is FUN and really has been a serious additional SPARK to our love life and "toy testing "sessions too!!! We have always shopped together for "toys" in catalogs, so this is just the newer extension of that. Gives us laughs too. Also no "third degree", we BOTH take turns writing about what we want!!! MAKE THIS FUN.

Indeed...no complaints from either of us, either! This is a great excuse for us BOTH to "buy new toys to test". How can one lose on that deal???

Exact same thing I did with my hubby...except I play WITH him with those toys too. Great "hand job helper". Plus, a little tongue at the end of those "tube toys" adds a special touch!!! Enjoy!

I do the review on my own. I will ask him how he likes the product afterwards, but he generally wouldn't say more than "i love it" or 'it's ok" anyhow, I am the articulate one. : )

We were granted a great opportunity to try new toys and if he doesn't feel like commenting on the products, I will order toys pertaining more towards me and then fill in his point of view in the review section later. When he chooses a product, however he is also as excited as I am to try it and explore our options. There have been a couple times when we were in the mood to try other things and used the review toys first, but for the most part we are in it together and both benefitting from the review program.

I wouldn't hesitate to ask my husband for his feedback.

nope because you're only asking about how it works afterwards. you're still using them, and i'm sure he's enjoying your time together immensely. it's always great to get two points of view on reviews anyway
