How many reviews do you read before deciding on a toy?

I think just one or two isnt always enough, but too many means usually a vide range of oppinions, sometimes totally contrasting so too many can be confusing too.

I usually read them all! And I have a math formula I use. I add up the number of 4 and 5 star reviews and divide the number by 2, then add up the 3+2+1 star reviews. If the second number is bigger than the first I won't buy the toy.

I read all of the reviews available, as I want to know all of the pros and cons, as well as what other folks did to compensate for any cons.

It depends on how many reviews there are to read. If there are only a couple I'll read them all. I usually start at the lower reviews and then work my way up to the rave reviews.

I try to get a good range. I often go offsite for other reviews, too, especially because then I can find more specialty things (e.g. exclusively queer women or plus-size women talking about the toy - both can be huge factors).

I usually read the top two, the middle two, and the bottom three if there are a lot and I am really in lust with the toy. I won't buy something that doesn't have really food reviews.

I try to read them all - and reviews for similar products. Peoples opinions are nuanced - so you have to find reviewers that you have something in common with - or trust from prior experience.

2 and on the outside 3 if I'm really ndecided. But it only took 3 tries to pick out my wedding gown 26 years ago. Okay, so I don't like to take long making a choice or decision. I find often times you lose out when you do.

Usually read the most positive, the most negative, and one in between.
