Not obligated. But it seems to make sense that I do.

I don't feel obligated and I definitely don't think it's "selfish" to not review, but for me the perks are well worth the bit of time and effort. I plan on reviewing every item I receive from EF.

A little bit of both. I have a few buy-out assignments that I'm working on now. I'm feeling a bit guilty for taking my time on them, but also don't want to give impulsive first-impression reviews.

The ones that aren't slated for review I feel a bit more meh on, if that makes sense.

I wouldn't say that I feel obligated (unless, obviously, I got something from EF to review!), but I enjoy writing reviews, sharing my experiences and letting other people what worked for me and what didn't. I'm lucky to have a LOT of experience with a LOT of different toys, products, lubes, etc... and I feel like I have something to share with the community by writing.

I usually don't let it stop me if something has already been reviewed - I think the great thing about EF is that you can get so many different perspectives on a thing. It really helps you know what you're buying

I review non-assigned products when I really have something to say about them. Those actually end up being some of my best reviews, imo, because usually I've been playing with the toy for a longer period of time.

I wouldn't say I feel obligated to review them, per se, but I do enjoy writing reviews. I've only just started getting into writing reviews, but I really enjoy it. I just did my first video review too, and really enjoyed that also. I plan to keep doing more reviews, as long as I feel like I have something useful to add about a toy. If I have a toy that has very few reviews already then I try to put those at the top of my review list.

i don't think it's necessary to write about every little item you own.

I don't feel obligated to review items that I own that are on EF, but I definitely want to! I have a blast doing it.

I try to review them all, but I've been falling behind on it.

I try to. I think the only thing I won't write a review on is my Ella, simply because there are so many reviews of it up already!
I have my assignment cart with 5 or 6 toys I own but have not gotten around to reviewing yet. Saving it for a rainy day or when inspiration hits me!

I love writing reviews, and reviewing has benefits, so I review everything I can. I still need to write a review for my glass dildo, then I'll be fairly caught up until my new order arrives.

I want the points and I like reviewing products. I value the information in reviews and make my purchase decisions based mainly on reviews. I like to contribute.

I feel like I want to review everything I own but its hard getting started as a noob.

Lives get hectic and you don't always have time to review items. I have about 6 items from EF and I've only reviewed 3. It's not that I don't want to, but school and making time around the kids' schedule kind of slows me down sometimes.
I actually start a rough draft for all items and finish them as time permits.

I don't feel obligated, but I am going to try to review every item that I've used that is on EF. I just like sharing my experiences, and really taking the time to get a toy well enough to review it.

My situation is a bit different because I'm not an advanced reviewer yet, so every toy I've reviewed is one that I already owned. But yeah, I think I"ll probably review every toy I buy on EF because it doesn't cost me THAT much effort and you get points and things! Even if there are a lot of reviews, hopefully every one will add a little something new...

I have a big box of "backstock" items that need to be reviewed still. They are most likely things that I tried and disliked, so I've had a hard time motivating myself to try them again and get the review written! After I finally review them, they'll probably get sent off for recycling...

I think it's really your responsibility if you're going to be a contributor to review everything honestly.

It's hard to motivate yourself to review Fail Toys, since you have to actually get them out again and fiddle with them and remind yourself of all the ways they didn't work. I can totally understand not doing it.

I suppose what it comes down to for me - if an item has 50 reviews on it already, and everyone knows its crap, I feel justified in just tossing the junk item and being done with it. If it didn't have many reviews, I might grit my teeth and force myself to write the review, to save the next buyer the money.

I'm officially caught up with writing about everything I own besides some lingerie pieces that EF carries. I've never felt obligated to make a review, but I like writing the reviews and it keeps my brain fresh and gives me something to do besides housework.

I have too much stuff to review everything. Also, there are some products I just see no reason to review. The Hitachi? What could I say that hasn't been said? The little catalog thing that comes with your orders? I don't think so. A single serving wipe? Meh. Sometimes you have a product and just don't have anything all that interesting or new to add. I tend to usually review newer products or those with no or few reviews.

At the moment I'm battling writer's block and am even having trouble with my assignments.

I simply don't have time to review every single item I own.

i feel like if you own it you should share what you feel about the product so others can gain your knowledge

I'm not good at writing and I haven't tried to review anything. My fiance reviews stuff on her account, shes much better with words than I am, I'll leave it to her.

I don't think it's obligation. I just enjoy doing reviews. I don't think anyone should feel they have to review it all, though. It's just preference. Of course, assignments are different.

I'm an ambassador so none of my reviews are assignments. I just find it fun!
