I can try to find the link to the page that explains it, but basically as long as it actually pertains to the act of using the toy, or the toy itself such, it's at our discretion. Basically, don't use words out of context. You can say "he liked how it felt on his dick" but not "he was such a dick about it".

Interesting, I would have assumed you had to keep it classy

From the Review Guidelines - "...this is an adult site, so feel free to be specific and explicit in your language/descriptions. This review is a chance for you to share (and others to read) about personal experiences with our toys- invaluable information that can't be found in toy descriptions or elsewhere."

You're certainly welcome to use euphemisms if you'd like, but it's perfectly fine to use other terms.

It's not quite swearing, but there is the implying of cussing in this review

You mean 'SOB'? Come on - it's just an abbreviation!

It is still implied!!!

But to answer the original posters question... I don't generally use cuss words in day to day life unless it is just used to really emphasise my point. In reviews, I don't see the point really. When I wrote that Tango review, I was hesitant to use "SOB" simply because there was a cuss word implied in it. But it did cause some ouches so felt it necessary.

I would say use cuss words with discretion. But that is me personally and everyone might think differently.

Now. Come here Rossie. Let me snog you!!!

I actually haven't ever seen anything stating not to do it, and I've read all the required rules and stuff more than once. I could've forgotten or missed it, but I usually try to use clean, correct grammar. It's totally possible to go into great detail without using a lot of bad language. While I don't get offended by reading or hearing it, I can understand it looking cleaner, more professional to use slightly decent grammar. I'm guilty of using "damn", but not excessively.

I'm glad you brought this up though. I didn't realize how it'd be important to know if there are rules about it.

There are some words I feel are way over the line. Perhaps I seen a review with such strong language like G.D. in it, I would not want to read it. That's totally uncalled for. I use bad language. I'm guilty of saying the F word, but I try to keep it on the DL. I don't use it loudly and never in reviews.

Also, words like p*ssy and d**c, they kind of don't cross me as clean/professional in a review, but it doesn't necessarily upset or bug me. I just prefer to use the proper terms (vagina, penis, clitoris) I personally have a bit of... um... limits? I will say pu**y and d*** to my lovie of course, but not much anywhere else. And I don't think using excessive F words look very classy in reviews to be completely honest.

I use p*ssy in my reviews occasionally for just a little extra emphasis, guess I should stop doing that from now on.

Nope you don't have to stop doing that. I think people really dislike any wording like that when it is used in a downgrading sense.

Not sure if you remember, but the Fuck me silly mega masturbator here on Eden used to have a really REALLY bad description about the toy. Something like "You can fuck her all the time and she will never say no" and a lot more lol

Using terms associated with sex I think are perfectly legit and kind of make me notice something within a review at times, but other swear words that don't pertain to the actions probably not.

Thank you for your clarification...good thing I'm only using the word on myself in a non-degrading way.

I don't think there's any rule against it, but I try not to use excessive swearing. Sometimes one must swear for emphasis though!
