5 Tips for Writing Winning Sex Toy Reviews
Now that Lovehoney has expanded to Australia, we are able to share our growing resource of 240,000 product reviews with all of you. Plus, you get the chance to share your sex toy reviews too! We want to get the low down on the down low from all of you down under.
Tell us about your favourite sex toy purchase, your first Lovehoney butt plug order, or the lube you recommend to all of your friends. The best reviews are the ones that help other customers figure out which item is right for them, sharing information that might not be clear from the product page. We publish all reviews, even if they're negative, because we really value your opinion.
Plus, when you post a review on one of Lovehoney's product pages, you're automatically entered to win $200 worth of store credit in our Review of the Month competition, and earn Oh! Loyalty Points toward even more sex toys and goodies from Lovehoney.

1. Briefly Sum Up the Product:
The main thing we are looking for in your review is your brief but informative personal experience. For example,
"It was big enough to make me feel more full but small enough that it wasn't uncomfortable for a beginner. Also, due it its shape it stayed in really well but was easy to remove" or "This is a restraint kit for people who are not BDSM beginners and want to find a product that properly secures their partner."
Both of these quotes include helpful feedback about each particular product, including important and useful information for indecisive customers.
2. Don't Repeat the Product Description:
Measurements and materials are listed on each product page, where applicable, therefore you won't need to add them to your review unless you think it adds value e.g. "A 6 inch circumference doesn't sound like a lot, but combined with the hard material this toy feels really thick". You can also avoid describing characteristics and packaging that can be seen in product photos.
The most helpful reviews teach readers more about the product than they can learn from the product description. Include your thoughts on the noises it makes, the feel of the material, and the true strength of the vibration.
Please contact us directly if you notice a mistake in one of our product descriptions.
3. Get to the Point:
The smart shoppers who frequent Lovehoney read over a few reviews before they find the product that's right for them. Reviews that aren't too long but offer a lot of information are better than long-winded stories. Please include the most important information in the ‘pros’, 'cons' and 'bottom line' sections too. As few as four to at most about ten paragraphs are best. Pick out the most important points from more detailed reviews and share those first.
4. No Need to be Explicit:
It's difficult sometimes to not over share when writing sex toy reviews. Readers don't need to know the details of your sex life in order to understand the product being reviewed. We recommend sticking to the key features and avoiding porny descriptions as much as possible.
5. Ready to Post?
When you're almost done make sure you've considered the following questions:
- What does the product do?
- What are the product's best/worst features?
- What was your experience with the product?
- How might it work for someone else?
Best of luck, and we can't wait to read your next review!
