I’ve Joined The Alliance of Independent Sex Toy Testers

Banding together to combat fake sex toy reviews online.

Alliance of independent sex toy testers

I’ve joined the Alliance of independent sex toy testers to combat something I see too much online. One of my biggest pet peeves is seeing reviews from folks who simply don’t know enough about toys to give accurate information for a helpful review, or simply have been paid to post about the product. Unfortunately in this day and age, The internet and social media are full of fabricated sex toy reviews, or ones chock full of bad information. This makes it even harder to discover genuine sex toy reviews written by people who have actually fucked the toys and can give you useful, accurate information you can use to make a decision if a toy is right for you.

That’s why the Alliance of Independent Sex Toy Testers was constructed: to help readers locate real reviews.

Here’s the list of blogs, all of which have been vetted and voted in by the Alliance members:
