I remember the first sex toy I ever received for review. I'd just gotten back from a seemingly good OkCupid date that ended with my date telling me "be well," so I wasn't exactly feeing great about myself. Luckily, there was a consolation: The Womanizer vibrator was waiting on my doorstep. Finally, I had something that would always go home with me at the end of the night and never leave me with a feeble "be well." And it's given me more orgasms than anyone I've ever met on OkCupid.
Since then, I've reviewed dozens of sex toys. As a digital nomad, this gets complicated. My parents have learned not to ask what's in the packages that arrive on their doorstep before my visits. My boyfriend keeps most of my toys in a huge cardboard box in his apartment, and I'm forever indebted to him for explaining my Satisfyer Pro 2 to German customs officers. I myself had to email a list of toys I was receiving to a UPS guy. After he asked what they were and I blurted out "they're sex toys," he delivered them with no questions asked.
It's all been worth it, though, because the following products — and the very kind people who helped them cross oceans to reach me — have helped me discover what my body's capable of, made sex more enjoyable, and allowed me to make your sex life better. That's the purpose of these products, after all.
