Intro. to EdenFantasys 101

This is a nice look at what Eden has to offer, but it is better to give to a friend who is new to sex toys and doesn't know where to begin, what to look for, or what type of toys are available to them. This catalog gives them a little peek at what they could find at EdenFantasys, and can help them start their search.

extremely useful review
This is a brief, but nice little catalog. Since I go on EdenFantasys.com everyday, I am very up to date on the latest toys and lingerie, what toys are hot, and what's going on in the forums. My boyfriend, however, is unfamiliar with the site and I have recently been bestowing my knowledge of sex toys unto him. He picked up this catalog when he saw it in my room and, being pretty new to sex toys, he was interested.

I like that the cover of this catalog is discreet, also that it is simple yet colorful and fun. It reads "Sexy Healthy Smart Fun Open Social Playful Intimate Unique Empowering" in different colored text against the white background, and has the EdenFantasys logo down the side and "2012 catalog". If someone is not aware of what EdenFantasys is and happens to see this lying around, if they just see the front cover they would probably not guess that it is a sex toy catalog, so the cover is discreet. But the back has a photo of a woman wearing the Coquette Boned Corset, and it says "Sexy Lingerie" and has the EdenFantasys logo with the EdenFantasys address. If you open to the front page, it has a few photos of different types of vibrators and says Sex Toy Guide 2012. There are many barcodes throughout the catalog that you can scan with your phone and browse online, I suppose. I do not have the ability to do this, so I can't say what happens if you do that.

The second page gives the Facebook page and Twitter links, mentions SexIs magazine, EdenCafe, EdenClubs, EdenTube, the forums, and the reviews of course. The next page has the customer care info and a very basic mention of the EdenPoints Rewards Program. It also mentions free gifts and free shipping with $59+ orders, and "free" is always a great selling point!

Here's where I really don't know how to this review make this any less dry to read, since I can't take pictures at the moment to show, so I will just explain each page. There is a page after that that has 4 waterproof vibrators, the next has 4 "power house" vibrators that "will rock your world". There is a page with 4 whisper quiet vibes, 4 g-spot vibes, another with 4 dual-action vibes, and another with 4 clitoral vibrators. Other pages include 4 discreet vibrators, 4 massagers, kegel exercisers, "essentials" (lubricants, condoms, and toy cleaners). I really liked that there is a 2 page layout that shows a few types of products for men. My honey stopped short on that out of curiosity, which was cute. Most people think of sex toys for men and all they think of is the infamous Fleshlight, which isn't included among these products. The page after men's toys has 2 pages of couples' products: chocolate body fondue (which looks really fun), a light bdsm kit, a liberator wedge, and a vibrating ring, just to give a few examples. There is a nice variety on that page I think, also. There is another 2 page layout for mostly massage candles, oils, and sets. There is a 2 page layout for gift ideas. The Jopen vibes take up 2 pages on their own, which is fair I think, since everyone lusts after at least one of those. The Zini vibes have 2 pages. Next page has 4 Jimmyjane products and 4 Je Joue products, and I think there is a nice variety shown among those. The Fun Factory G4 vibes have 2 pages.

Andddd finally...The last 2 pages are the materials guide! I really wish that had more information, because that is something that people really seem to learn about once they get involved with the Eden Community. It only shows "Best" (10 safety rating) Safe & Soft Silicone and says a like 3 sentences about silicone toys, "Good" (7-8 rating) Hypoallergenic Hard Plastic and TPE/TPR, and "Green" (9-10 rating) glass, wood, and ceramic products. There is a short paragraph on what phthalates are, which is very necessary I think, and I am really glad that is there. Maybe a bit about glycerin, parabens, propylene glycol, etc. would have been nice as well. Also, mentioning that silicone toys cannot be used with silicone lube would have been a good thing to add.
Follow-up commentary
I still have the same opinion of this catalog. When I made an order a few weeks ago that came with the Eden Valentine's catalog, I thought this catalog was a lot better. This one had a bigger selection of toys and info.

    Lots of good info! I wish the catalog had a little more in it though for people who don't have easy access to the internet. Don't you agree?

    Lickable Lollie, true! When I first checked it out I figured it would have a LOT of products in it for pretty much that reason.
