Eden Fantasys has helped me to look deeper into my desires and my relationship with my husband. I've discovered a lot about myself and have allowed a lot of walls to come down inside my marriage. We've tried things I never thought we would before, and have opened ourselves to the possibility of so many more. This site has helped my husband and I figure out how to please each other with the use of toys and other sexual aides, which in turn has brought us closer. Before Eden my husband sometimes felt that he didn't go a good job of pleasing me because of the way my body works. After reading through the forums and sharing with him what other's were experiencing, he realized that I wasn't lying to him; everyone's bodies work differently and it didn't mean he wasn't a good lover. Confidence boosters like that have made our intimacy truly amazing because there's no longer a feeling of being let down if something doesn't work the way we expect it to.
This amazing site has opened my mind to a whole world of things I knew little to nothing about. I've always been an open minded-person, but never took the time to really educate myself, especially with the sexuality of others. I spent most of my life thinking that things were black or white with only a small gray area; gay, straight, bi; and had never realized that love can be so different for so many people. Relationships are so diverse and Eden has truly opened up my eyes to how different we all are, while still having the same foundation that's based on love.
My family was no stranger to homosexuality. From the time I was young, it's was known that my uncle was gay. This was a lifestyle that my father didn't approve of and wasn't shy about voicing his thoughts. My sister and I were brought up with a very opinionated father who thought that he knew just what was right and what was wrong. Even with how much he tried to instill his 'values' onto my sister and I, it didn't take. My sister ended up coming out that she was a lesbian when she was 21 years old, and I had accepted her just as she was, just like I had been doing all of our lives. Love is love; no matter whom you love, how you love, what you love, or how many you love, it's a beautiful thing and deserve acceptance. Eden has highly impressed me with that fact. The positivity surrounding the community here is impressive to say the least, and not once have I felt like I was judged based on who I am as a person, or the person I share my love with.
The contributors of Eden are as diverse as it gets and come from all walks of life. The review program is only one small area of Eden that is positively impacted by that fact. Eden is, in fact, an online sex toy shop; but it's so much more than that! One of the things I appreciate and am so thankful for is hearing the experiences of others and being able to let others know of mine as well. It's so important to have an understanding of your body and the way it works. The reviews on this site truly help people, and have the ability to change lives. Before I fell in love with Eden, I didn't think I could orgasm from vibrations. I had purchased weak, inexpensive toys prior to jumping into this site that just didn't work for my needs. Eden takes the wonder out of each item by providing customers with thorough reviews from all experience levels. It makes me proud to be a part of this program by knowing that my experiences might be able to help someone else further their own personal journey through sexual self discovery.
The mentor program is what really started me in the right direction in this site. Having a mentor is truly a wonderful experience! It gives someone looking to brush up on their reviews a chance to get a second set of eyes and a little guidance. I was fortunate enough to have an amazing mentor when I first started out, someone who encouraged me and built me up. I was never made to feel like I wasn't doing a good enough job, and her positive attitude was what truly drove me to do my very best. This seemingly small part of Eden is so hugely important, and I now have the honor to take what I've learned and pass that on to my own students. Being able to help others fine tune their reviewing skills is such a rewarding experience for me. This program first helped me to do my best, and I appreciate being able to share that with others.
The video review program was something I never thought I'd have the courage to take part in, especially with the mature nature of the 'adult' videos. Being a larger woman has always made me feel like I'm not as attractive as others, especially after having three children. After a lot of consideration, I decided to join this area of Eden to see if I could prove to myself that I can be sexy too, despite my size and shape. My husband joined me for a lot of the first ones, but I started doing some on my own after a little while. Seeing my husband's eyes grow wide while watching my naked form through the computer screen was something I desperately needed. It was like he was seeing me for the first time all over again and made me feel sexy, which is something I've never felt much of. If it weren't for this program, I don't think I'd feel as comfortable about my body as I do now. Yes, I'm still very insecure, but seeing the effects this program has had on my marriage has been an amazing experience!
The forums and community here impress me. There are still people here and there that post negative things, but the staff is quick to resolve any issues that may come up. In general, this area of Eden is very informative and is a great resource. It's easy to get feedback about different situation, products, etc. and in turns helps you to learn a great deal about others on the site. Eden isn't all about sex. While the foundation is based on that, the community members are so much more! We're not a bunch of weirdoes that sit around all day masturbating (okay, maybe some of us are); we have families, jobs, hobbies, etc. and have the ability to share that through the great forum provided for us.
Aside from my relationship with my husband getting stronger, the greatest thing I've gained from Eden are the wonderful people I've grown to call my friends. I never though signing up for an online sex toy shop and taking part in so many of the programs would help me find people I'm able to connect with on such an amazing level. People that I'll have long lasting relationships with, people I'm able to share my life with; I never expected to find that when I first entered in a user name and password and started browsing. More than anything, that was my biggest surprise of this site. I've gained acceptance of myself, have developed a closer bond with my husband, and have made life-long friends, all thanks to this amazing site!
The last thing I want to share my thanks for is the amazing staff that truly makes this site what it is! If it weren't for each of you doing such an amazing job, this site wouldn't be what it is today! I wish there was some way we, as the community, could honor you more for the above and beyond job you each do, but for now, I'll just say it here. I sure hope your salaries are high, because you deserve it for the effort and involvement you put into the site.
Thank you staff, writers, editors, contributors, etc. for all that you put in to the site! And Happy Thanksgiving!
