Is there really that big of a point to write a review for something...

...Which already has a lot of reviews? If so, how many is too many? I can;t imagine that things which have fifteen already profit much from getting one more.

I usually won't do a review if there's, like, 100 already. Fifteen I'd still do a review on if I feel I can add something that already hasn't been said. I usually base that decision partially on how much I feel like writing the review and partially on how useful the existing reviews are. If there's 20 SU reviews then I'll do one.

Maybe.

Did you use this in a different manner, come up with a new angle or have more info than the other reviews?? If no--then I will put it off until I have absolutely nothing else to review and am dying of total boredom.

i usually write a review for everything because most of the things i get i either get as free or buy out items so i'm obligated. Plus, i don't have that many reviews on my record yet and want to build up my rating. As a bonus, 50 points is a pretty decent incentive, not that i do it only for this and i'm always extremely thorough and always try to include some different point of view or cover something that isn't in any of the other reviews or show a picture of something from an angle that i haven't seen. i always read as many reviews as possible on an item before i get it so i try to make sure to include anything that surprised me or that i wasn't expecting from reading the reviews. There's almost always something. Many of the toys i end up with seem to have a lot of reviews by straight women or men or straight couples so, where possible or relevant, i try to give a lesbian perspective, how well the toy functions when used in a couple consisting of two female bodied people, which can sometimes be a little different, plus my girlfriend usually tries most of my toys too, or at least uses them on me, so i get her feedback and include it as well. MiMi, for example, is a very popular item with many reviews and lots of people remark that it is great for fitting in between a male and female body during PIV sex. i haven't read any other reviews about how well it works between two females or how it works worn inside a harness during strap-on sex with two females, all of which i was able to elaborate on at length. i can usually also provide some insight, depending on the item, because i'm much smaller than average in most respects which can have relevance in some circumstances.

No matter what information I can tell someone about a product, no one else has the same experiences I've had with it. It doesn't matter to me if there are a million reviews on something, I still have my own opinion and experiences of it.

Agreed. Every single person is different and every experience is different, I think there's something to be gained from a new review even if there's 100 already!

I think it still matters! Especially if you have something new to provide about that toy. For example, if everyone else had a great experience but yours was bad--definitely tell us!

I am not understanding the question. What are you talking about now? OH! You mean how many reviews on a product before there are TOO many reviews, right?

For me, when I can't give any more information than has already been giving, I won't review it. Sometimes though, a product can have 10 reviews and still need more info, but usually 15 leaves nothing more needed.

I've only done a few a reviews where there were a lot of other reviews. I'm with PropertyofPotter in that my experience will be different, but I think subconsciously I have avoided doing some reviews where there are a lot.

im in the same boat at the moment. Just bought a Pure wand and i thought "hmmm theres soooo many reviews for it"

But in reality my wife and i are:
-very new to toys
-Never had metal
-never had non-rabbit
-never had 'squirting'

Sooo in reality thats 4 special things for us in combination that maybe these 4 specific "new things" have never been talked about before for this item.
Everyone is different

If I have a different experience, maybe. Hell, I like it when something I'm interested in has a million and one good reviews. It means there is more chance of me liking it.

I don't write reviews if the product already has a bunch of them already. So you will never read a hitachi magic wand review from me I know I usually won't read more than a couple of reviews on a product, so I don't tink it is necessary to write a review if there are already a bunch of them
