How To Become a Sex Toy Reviewer (Q&A #6)

When people ask me what I do, I often joke that I masturbate for a living. That is, of course, a huge oversimplification. But as a person whose job title includes the words “sex toy reviewer,” it is kind of true.

Let’s get this out of the way first: the Fun Factory Stronic Eins is a nearly $200 sex toy. I never know whether to talk about price in my toy reviews.

L’amourose Prism V Review

When I say that the L’amourose Prism V is my perfect vibrator, I am not using that word lightly. I test sex toys for a living, after all, and I sugarcoat nothing — the things I love still tend to come with a list of caveats, and the things I hate are spared no snarky comment or complaint. I want the sex toy industry to be better, and part of making it better is through critique…

5 Sex Toy Shopping Mistakes

Sex toy shopping can be weird. I’ll be the first to admit that. Our society’s attitudes toward sex and masturbation are weird, and it’s usually not often that we buy things that are going to interact with our bodies so intimately. But because they interact with our bodies so intimately, there are a lot of considerations that need to be made when purchasing your sex toys…
