I first joined EdenFantasys back in 2007. I was 19 at the time and had really no idea what exactly sex was, aside from putting on some lube and a condom and one of us getting on top of the other. I was interested in trying new things. I believe I Google searched “sex toys” or “sex toy store” and came up with EdenFantasys as the first result.
I started off small, buying little cheap things to enhance my sex life. Looking back, those first couple of months brought me some of the worst sex enhancers and aids I ever bought. It was fun, though, so I don’t really regret it now.
After a while of visiting the site, I started noticing banners advertising a sex toy review program. Since everything said I’d get a free sex toy in exchange for an honest review, I decided to sign up.
As I received and reviewed all sorts of products, I started getting a feel for the kinds of things I liked and didn’t like. I also started learning more and more about product materials, safety hazards, and the multiple kinds of uses toys have to offer. This gained knowledge helped me to make better purchases by comparing the quality of a product to its price tag.
Looking at products and input from real people completely changed the view I had on sex toys. Right before I started reviewing, looking around on the internet at sex toys most often brought me to pages of rabbit-style vibrators with all sorts of little bells and whistles on them. I felt kind of like an outsider for not finding rabbit-style vibrators particularly stimulating or exciting. Once I got to read other people’s opinions on sex toys as a whole, I found out that no, not every woman uses and loves that kind of toy. I felt relieved to know I wasn’t weird.
Jump forward in time, I’m 24 years old and I’m still reviewing for EdenFantasys. I now feel confident in using pretty much any kind of toy. I love being able to help those who are at that stage I was at not too long ago: confused but wanting to try it anyway. I’ve gone from being mildly uncomfortable using small, external finger vibes to being comfortable strapping on dildos to use with my fiancé. I have over 200 products from EdenFantasys in my collection and am continuing to add to it.
When I first started dating my fiancé, he had the opinion society seems to shove down every man’s throat: anal sex is for gay men only. After discussing it and looking up information, he agreed to try a few small anal toys. He’s now worked up to using some great toys and loves every second of it. Had I not been a member of the community here, we wouldn’t have experimented with anal toys and would not have one of our favorite kinds of play right now.
My sexual confidence and knowledge is all thanks to Eden. Without the support of EdenFantasys and the community, I would have never found what I truly enjoy about sex. Every day I am learning more and more about different toys and I love it. That knowledge not only helps me to make more educated decisions, it gives me something to pass on to those around me.
EdenFantasys is by far the one and only sex shop I can fully trust.
