Only wrote one, and it's still pending review from my mentor but it fits my personality in that it's not so serious.

I try to write it like I'm telling a friend about it. I have an extremely dry sense of humor so my "funny" comes across as "sarcastic and bitchy", but if we were talking face to face you'd be able to hear it.

I think I write reviews in a conversational way. I don't attempt to make them funny, but if humor comes through, then I add it in.

I try to write how I talk, which can sometimes come across seriously, but can also reflect humor. I've noticed that how I write influences how I talk which influences how I write sometimes. The end result is me attempting to come across like a regular human being with reviews that aren't super serious.

I am not really that funny. So I find it hard to include humor. I right reviews that answer the questions needed.

I write like I talk which is serious with a nice undertone of sarcasm. So not exactly funny, per say. I don't know if the sarcasm translates on paper but it's in my head when I think what I'm typing. I try to be informative and serious for the most part because I'm not all that great at funny haha. I'm more dry I guess.

Depends on the type of review, I tend to be a little more straight forward with Descriptive and more layed back with regular reviews. I add humor when it fits and can be down right technical when needed.

Sam has some of the best advice about writing like you talk, I love reviews where it sounds like the writer is talking to me over a cup of coffee.

I try to be silly, since I'm a silly girl. I can be serious if the need arises, though.

It really depends on the item I'm reviewing..that goes for this site as well as my product review/giveaway (pg 13) Blog.

Totally changes. I'm trying to be a bit more goofy, but still get all the stuff across that needs to be gotten across.

I try to write so you can hear my voice in the conversation and get a feel for my personality. I do that with every outlet I write for. It's hard for me not to throw in some sarcastic humor, thats part of my personality.

It depends on how I feel about the item or my mood. Most of the time I'm to the point unless I have a story that relates to the item or I'm particularly angry with the piece. Then I go off on a rant and cut that down during editing

I don't have a sense of humor so mine are more technical I suppose stating the facts. I wish I was able to add some humor to them.

Mine tend to be a whatever fits the ocassion. Generally, I will hit upon a key sentence for the opening before I start, and that will influence the entire review. It may or may not be funny, but the idea is to get your attention to what I have to say about the item.

It varies with each review. I like to have fun with the title and then go from there. A lot of it is getting the information out there and filling in with personal experiences.

I just go with the flow

Sometimes toys just beg for you to add a little humor to their review! And I certainly review a light-hearted review!

Sunshineamine Sunshineamine
It depends on my mood when writing the review and the product itself. I usually add some humor because lets face it, life is funny.

Mine are pretty straightforward, but I'd like to get a little more creative with it now that I'm more comfortable writing them and have a better idea of what has to be in them.

I've given up on trying to write funny ones. Doesn't matter if I add all the important info - it's still not good enough for certain people!
So bugger it - my reviews are all serious and just state the facts.

Love to use puns and double entendres Of course, ALL of my reviews are very serious and matter-of-fact. LOL

Great poll! I try to be very conversational, but sometimes am a bit quirky!

I haven't written any, but I would like to learn more about the review process

I try to be informative but come across as if I were having a conversation. I'm not really sure if I do that, but that is what I aim to do anyway lol

Humor is always good to throw in, but I mostly focus on being informative and providing information more than anything else!

I see my main priority/job as providing information to the readers, not impressing them with humor. (My dry humor never works in text anyway- Glad I'm not the only one who's had that problem. Haha.) But I'm a rather silly person, so I'll sneak in a goofy comment or innuendo now & then if it doesn't seem awkward. I won't try to force the funny, though, if it's just not there.

Anyway, I figure we're all adults here discussing sex toys & more, so it's a bit late to worry about being all formal. So I guess I'd say my review style is "professional-casual." (That's like dress-casual only with writing instead of clothes).

I write extremely detailed reviews in most instances.

Mine vary, but generally tend to sound pretty much the way I converse, but with more specific details about the toy/item.

I just try to cover what stands out to me and what I think I'd want to know.
