Section for partner comments

Cinnamon Chambers Cinnamon Chambers
There are often times that my partner and I have differing opinions about a toy that we have used together. This leaves me at a loss for rating sometimes, but I usually try to leave those comments in the Experience section. I was thinking it would be good to include another optional section like experience for partner comments/opinion, or even partner ranking. This way it is clearly reflected that there is a difference in opinion about a product, or that it is an asset to both people using it, but doesn't mean the partner has to write an entire review when just the experience was different.

I have encouraged him to write his own reviews for things I do not usually use with him or if it is something he likes a lot or hates and I feel different about. He has for a couple things, but he doesn't go nearly as indepth as I do, but I don't want to write his reviews for him. I feel like sometimes there is such a difference that it is confusing to include it in my review or experience, though I think it is worth mentioning. What do you think?

I've just been adding my partner's comments under experience, labeled as such, if he has any.

CC...I don't think it's confusing. As can be seen throughout the EF reviews, there can be a wide difference in opinions and ratings. Having the second opinion in the same review I find very useful...as it shows a refreshing honesty, especially if the base review is so enthusiastic. Nothing readers can't handle if the vote is not unanimous...even within the same relationship.

As Sammi has, I've just been adding my partners thoughts and reactions in the experience section.

I'd love this as an optional section. My husband won't write though. I'd be adding his opinion separately. As it is, I include it in the experience section as well.

It'd be a great option for his/hers reviews, but I probably wouldn't use it much. I try to write in a linear fashion, so if I mention a partner's response to a toy, it usually just "goes with the flow."

I have been including it in experience also, but it is only when there is a major difference in opinion that I feel like it might be confusing to the reader if I love, he hates it or vice versa. I think it would be easier to locate as a reader that it might suck or be awesome as a couples toy.

Fred (that's the bossman aka owner, to you newbies)and I have discussed 'Couples reviews' a few times over the last few months - but our idea has both members of the couple with their own accounts and they log in and complete the sections of the review themselves, not one partner doing both sections. We are still kicking around ideas for multiple perspectives in reviews (as you'll see soon enough *hint*)and I will definitely bring it up again in our meeting tomorrow.

An optional section would be fantastic. It would make it easy to read, and can easily differentiate two opinions.

I also usually just insert my partner's opinion and thoughts throughout the review and I haven't found it confusing in other reviews. Though a more clear layout for multiple perspective reviews would be a cool addition for certain products that really require a team effort ^_^

I think it would be great to have a specific section for a partner's perspective/ opinion. I think that a partner rating would be good too, so you don't have to mesh opposing opinions.

I just add his comments to my experience section. If you wait on him to type it up, it won't happen!

Mine probably wouldn't either. He's good with doing movie reviews, but I'm not sure I could get him to write about toys. But, I could be wrong

My b/f just doesn't want to write about toys that he uses with me.. Says he just knows if I enjoy them or not..at the time. His toys, butt pugs says not too much to say, they either feel good or not. Trying to get him to write something about his masturbator; says he is "still testing" lol I just try to incorporate his comments in my reviews.

I agree. Any time I review something I've used with my husband, I include my husband's thoughts if it really enhanced the review (differing opinions, etc). If I didn't, I'd just be a bad reviewer. So I guess I don't see this as totally necessary.
