Do you find it easier to write more about toys you enjoy vs ones you don't?

I prefer to write reviews on products I love. It makes it easier for me to have fun with the review. So I probably do write more on those reviews. Actually the hardest reviews to write, for me, are the ones where there really isn't a lot that you could say about them.

It is harder for me to write about toys that I don't like; because I am not as enthusiastic about them. I am the type of person that works better when I am interested in something. I have been utilizing the mentor program to improve the reviews of toys I don't like, though. You can tell just by my reviews which ones I like more than others

It Is just hard for me to write anyway. I don't know how to put some of my thoughts out the best way

I don't think it matters if it's good or bad. The information in the review is to share the experience and good, bad or indifferent it's still your experience. I only have one review posted and it was a positive one but regardless I took forever to hit the send button because I didn't want to leave anything out. Working on one now that is a soso product. I doubt it will be as long as my first review because there isn't as much to specify but still it shouldn't be any harder to write for me. Have to wait and see I guess lol

Its easier for me to write about something I enjoyed. I just have more to say about it, when I don't like something there usually isn't much to say other than it totally sucks.

In the begining I found it a lot easier to write about the toys I enjoyed. But the more I write, the easier it's getting to write all. I still prefer the fun toy reviews!

It's easier for me to write about a toy I didn't like because I'm much more critical and more explanatory as to why I didn't like it. I think it paints a better picture of the toy.

Toys I do like are easy. Toys I really hate can be easy, too, if I hate them enough, although that's only happened twice. Finding an angle on the toys that work well enough, but aren't exciting -- that's the hardest.

It doesn't matter to me. I just seem more enthusiastic about the ones I've wanted.

I can write about both, but it's easier to write about something I like.

It seems particularly hard to write about something that's middle of the road. Not bad, but not great, ya know?

If I am enthused or excited about a product, I enjoy writing the review. If a product has not been exciting for me so far, I have not reviewed it. I try to only pick products that I am excited about... SO, I haven't had to deal with complete disappointment yet.

I have one item in my assignment cart awaiting a review. I have started it, but because I have a so-so or blah opinion of the toy it is really hard for me to find the right things to say other than, "It is just OK." I love to write reviews on items I have strong feelings about in either direction, but it is hard to say why something isn't great but not terrible.

It's hard to review toys, to a degree, whether you like them or not, because each of us is different, and so what one prefers, another may hate with a passion! LOL
It's really not as easy as "Hey this is great, loved it, gotta get it!". You have to take the time and practically dissect the toy, your experience, and functionality.
However, I personally have a harder time writing about the toys I DON'T like. It's hard to come up with a positive spin on a toy, while being HONEST, that you don't like. Obviously you can't write "it sucks" when doing a professional review. So, yes, it can be challenging. I do like helping people, giving my opinion, and trying out new & exciting things though!

Honestly, It is easier for me to talk about products that I did not like. It usually gives me more to talk about and seems to be more useful for people that are debating on buying it.

I think this is less true of sex toys than anything else I've reviewed, but I still have much more to say about a product that I don't like. When I dislike something, it's usually for a very specific reason, whereas with things I do like, it's usually just because they do what they claim. I also put a lot of emphasis on humor in my writing, and for some reason I've always found it difficult to be humorous and positive at the same time. Imagine what a joy I am to date.

I voted that they're both the same, and it's true when it gets down to the actual writing. Motivation is a big problem when I don't like the toy, though. If it isn't fun to play with I just want to put it away and not have to give it another try or think about it in-depth and objectively.

So far I have written a review on a toy I really love and a toy that I half way like. I found it easier to write a review on the toy I really love vs the one that I half way like. I find it harder to go into detail about something I don't care that much for. But if I love something I will go into more detail.

It's so much easier for me to write about an item that I enjoy. My thoughts roam through experiences I've had with the object and really get my juices flowing, creative and otherwise.

I have attempted to write about my "meh" toys, but find that I get distracted and walk away.

The toys I love and enjoy are the easiest for me to write about because I probably just used them in the past little while so they are fresh in my mind.

I find it easier to get motivated about writing the review if i like the toy, but once i get to writing i feel the same about the review process whether I like the toy or not.

I don't have to love a toy but I definitely find it's easier if I have a strong opinion about the toy. I don't really feel right taking stars off for a toy simply being boring if it's well constructed and packaged. But at the same time I really do want to make the amazing toys stand out from the mediocre toys. I guess I can tend to be harsh if I don't love a toy. But yeah, I definitely won't hesitate to write about a toy that I really didn't like. I don't want someone else to waste their money.

It is much easier for a more enjoyable toy because I know exactly what I want to say. For toys that we hate it is hard to say to many bad things because it we just did not like it so have to keep the review semi unbiased.

It's so much easier for me to describe a toy I liked more than a toy I didn't like very much. I guess it's because if theres a lack of passion for a toy I don't have the words to describe it. I find it easier to write about things I love more than hate.

If I loved a toy I find it much easier. If I didn't like it, then I have a hard time suggesting who would enjoy it.

For me, I find it easier to write reviews about toys that have both pros and cons. Versus the ones I gush about. I mean, really how many times can you go on about how great a toy is? Sometimes you need to complain a bit.

It's much easier to write about something I like. When I'm not enthusiastic about something it's hard to find the words to describe why without sounding biased.

So much easier to write about the ones I like.
I feel I have a lot of good things to say and want to share it all!
Whereas, with the ones I didn't like so much, I don't want to say anything bad, so I end up saying nothing at all.

It is easier for me to review products that weren't good for me, however I enjoy writing about the better experiences I've had. This is the most negative review I've ever written and although it was easy to discuss the problems, I did not enjoy writing it.
