Looking for a media kit? Here you go!
Reviews! We love reviews, we want people to enjoy their sexual experience and believe customer reviews are a powerful tool for helping them achieve that. However, we do have a procedure for how we go about it.
Policy – You have to send us the item you want us to review, free of charge. Also, we will keep the item once the review is done. If you have any review stipulations (i.e. timeframe, length, company to mention, etc), you need to let me know when you submit the product for review. We reserve the right to ignore any changes to our agreement after the item is in our hands. Be aware, just because you are sending me an item doesn’t mean we are going to love it. We want our readers to trust our reviews, so we like to be honest. If a review is negative (and this has never happened, but just in case), we will email you before publishing to get a statement or discuss any issues. That is the only time you get to the see the review before hand. Otherwise, you get no editorial rights to our review – this is just about integrity for us. I know, I know – it sounds all serious! But the review relationship is important, and we want it to be positive for us, the reader, and you! After all, we are all working for the same goal – great sex. Really, we’re like missionaries. Sex missionaries. Yes. Last it would be awesome if you provided a coupon for our readers (so they can buy your awesome product), and/or an affiliate link for us (incentives, yo!).
What will we review? Almost anything – sex toys, vibrators, flesh lights, condoms, BDSM equipment, lube, and so on. Not sure if we will review? Just ask! Remember there are two writers on this blog, so it is possible to get a female perspective, a male perspective, or both! Two for one!

If you are quoting our blog post, please do not use more than three sentences, and include a link to our blog.

You may not repost any of our content. This content is copyrighted and we will pursue all legal means to remove pirated material.

We don’t publish press releases. If you need help getting the word out about something you think our readership might be interested then contact us about sponsored social media posts.
We are happy to do interviews either via email or phone. Again, as with everything else, the questions must fit into our blog subject matter – BDSM and Sex Education. We ask that you link to our site and send us a link to the interview when it is published. Again, we require you to use pen/ scene names. Head shots are sometimes provided on request, though we prefer to use our branding in lieu of photos.

This blog is a collaborative blog written by a group of individuals. This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation.
This blog abides by word of mouth marketing standards. We believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. That content, advertising space or post will be clearly identified as paid or sponsored content.
The owner(s) of this blog is compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for our posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the bloggers’ own. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
What does this mean? It means that I reviews products that I have purchased and other times the products may be given to me in exchange for a review. Just because I got a product for free doesn’t mean I won’t give my honest opinion. I will let you know if the item I am reviewing was given to me at no cost. In addition, I have affiliate links on the site. That means if you click on one of those links and then purchase something from the retailer, I get a commission.
It is important to remember that we are not medical professionals. We always encourage you to talk to your doctor about intimate issues.
