Friends always ask us how we choose the products in our range. No, we don't road test them all, even though we would love to! As business owners, we too rely on sex toy reviewers to decide what is worth stocking and what isn't.
Once I started reading sex blogs and reviews, I soon realised that not only a lot of high price tag toys don't work the way they should, I also noticed that many reviewers would give most toys a 4-5 stars, in a sugar-like review. I'm still not sure if they truly believed the toys were amazing or if they just wanted to keep retailers and manufactures happy...
It was back then that we decided to only stock products that not only we believe in but also that have been approved by some sex toy experts. It's very upsetting to spend your hard-earned money on a toy that doesn't work or breaks after a few uses. Unfortunately, we've been there. We hope you haven't.
So we are proud to share with you our favourites sex toy reviewers (in alphabetical order). We must say a big thank you to all of them for doing such an important job!
Dangerous Lilly – Not only her reviews are very helpful and great to read, but Lilly is also behind some awesome side projects such as the Sex Blogger Co-op and the Toy Swap Network. She was also involved in the launch of Dildology, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to investigate the body-safety of sex toys. Is it possible to be any more awesome? But we need to warn you: she is leaving the blog sphere for a while. Keep an eye to see when she is back, but her blog is a big library, with over 800 posts. Please check her out!
If she was to keep one and only one sex toy, it would be the We-Vibe Tango or Salsa. " NOTHING else compares. In fact it's already the vibe I use 95% of the time"
"Where sex toys go to be judged" - If you read sex toy reviews, it is very likely you've checked her blog. Her writing style and strong opinions are her trademarks. If she says that something is amazing, we take her word. You need to check for yourself. Posts are informative and with a sharp humor and we love how she has been exposing bad practices in the industry. Want more? She has recently been transformed in a super-hero by one of the best sex shops out
there. Go and see for yourself right now! Satisfaction guaranteed!
If she had all her toys confiscated and could keep only one, it would probably be the LELO Mona 2.
LELO Mona 2 $155
Naughty Reenie "Discovering sex toys one by one" - She is one of the new kids on the block and her reviews can also be "brutally honest". If something doesn't work, she will tell you, even if it means a video to show you what the problem is. The website is well designed, easy to ready and navigate. Keep your eyes on her!
If Reenie had to keep only one toy in her collection, at the moment it would be the LELO Siri.
LELO Siri $125
Redhead Bedhead – Her mission to "save the world from mediocre sex" is a big task and she seems to be doing it pretty well, thank you very much! Only one year after launching her blog, she has traveled and visited some of the best sex shops in U.S. in a project called The Super Hero Sex Shop Tour and is ready to do it all over again! Fun to read and lots more than just great reviews. Coincidently, MissX is also a red head.
Screaming Violet "Australia's Sex Toy Queen" is our favourite blogger from down-under, Violet has been reviewing toys since 2010. We love that she doesn't hide her identity and most of the people around her knows what she does. Being open and proud is not for everyone and she deserves all our respect for that. We love her writing and cannot wait to see more. We believe she will be doing some amazing things very soon. Exciting times ahead!
