Review your sex toys at Lovehoney

After accumulating over [[stats:reviews]] sex toy reviews Lovehoney now has the biggest resource of sex toy reviews in the world.

When you write a review on Lovehoney's site, you’re automatically entered to win $150 of Lovehoney store credit in our monthly competition. To get started, click "Add your review" on any product page. Read on to learn how to write a winning review.

When reviewing on Lovehoney.com, your goal is to provide information that can't already be found on the product page. Include your opinion on performance and the price.

The best reviews help customers make educated decisions about what will work for them. Whether you loved or hated the the product, the most helpful reviews will discuss qualities that someone else would encounter if they purchased the same item.

Remember to use the product a couple of times before you write your review. First impressions are important, but you might find your feelings could change after a few more uses.

Here are some things to consider when writing an adult product review for Lovehoney:

What would I say if I had to sum up the product in just a few sentences?

The primary thing others are looking for in your review is your concise personal experience.

"Awesome when used on my clit during penetration", "Lacking the power I look for", "Surprisingly snug feeling" are all helpful things to say about the products, and they include important and useful information for curious customers.

Did you repeat information from the product description?

We most often list measurements and materials on product pages, no need to rewrite them in your review unless something is unclear e.g. "6 inch circumference doesn't sound like a lot, but combined with the hard material this toy feels really thick". If the product description includes photos of the packaging, a detailed description is unnecessary.

It's much more helpful to comment on aspects of the product that people can't tell from the information already provided. For example, how loud was the item or how strong was the vibration?

If you think something might be off in the product details, please contact us so we can check and correct the description if necessary.

Am I getting to the point?

Often Lovehoney customers take a quick look at a handful of reviews before they place an order, they don’t want to spend a lot of time reading just one. Make sure your ‘pros’, 'cons' and 'bottom line' include the most important information. A good length is between 4 and 10 paragraphs. If you wrote a more detailed review for your blog, pick out the most important points when posting to the product page.

Is this TMI?

It might seem impossible to not reveal too much information when writing an adult product review. The truth is readers don't need to know the details of your business to better understand the product. Try to stick to the key features and avoid detailed descriptions of your anatomy or anything verging on pornographic.

Finishing up

When you’re done read your review over one last time, make sure you’ve described:

  • How the product works.
  • Your most/least favorite features.
  • Your experience with the product.
  • How the product might (or might not) work well for others.
