Some of you might have wondered: How do you test BDSM toys? Well… here is the ultimate answer – at least for this website.
It all starts with receiving an envelope from a mysterious donor which goes straight to my desk for unpacking.
The first thing I find inside such envelopes is mostly something to get me through the stressful and exhausting reviewing process.
Damn, they know my weaknes! 😉
Next up is a friendly and easy to understand notice which should help me reach a verdict matching the superior quality and functionality of the new toy.
Last but not least is the toy itself. And now you know why unboxings will be very rare at this website.
The first thing I do with a new toy is testing it at a uncritical part of my body in order to get a first impression and a feel for it.
From this first test, I take some notes on the initial expressions I got.
Because the initial reaction can be misleading, I let the toy rest a bit. This is why you will rarely find extensive reviews of new toys tight after I got them.
Now also the testing on me and on friends begins – which I am at the moment not allowed to show you. I might update this article as soon as I find a way to do so.
During the resting time, I keep on testing them and get second oppinions, p.e. from friend who come over for a drink and a pretzel…
… or by taking them out to a club in order to get some reallife experience with them.
After I have gathered enough information how the toy performs as a BDSM utensile, the more technical testing starts. How do certain materials influence the experience? Does the toy damage the material?
Next up is the handling test where the influence of gloves and lube on the overall and more important the secure handling of the toy is tested.
Right after the testing, I take some times to try out different probs in order to show the toy in it’s best light when the pictures are taken…
… which takes place right afterwards.
It all ends with the digital production process: Cropping and editing the pictures, writing a review from the notes I have taken, scoring the toy and finally creat a WordPress article featuring the review.
