$$$. Hoekstra reports that Chantall is sent all of these toys, and has never paid a dime for them. “I’ve got connections with all the major brands, like Lelo, Fun Factory, and Rocks-Off,” she said. “They send me their newest products before they even hit the stores so I can try them out and write about it."
Everyday? Not so much.. “I don’t test a new toy every day,” she said, “because reviewing sex toys is just like having ‘regular’ sex—sometimes you’re in the mood and sometimes you’re not. But I do try to update my website and answer messages from readers every day."
But.. how do you test them? Chantall’s husband is involved in the process from time-to-time. “I do what I call a ‘dry test’ first,” she said. “I look at the package, I look up what the manufacturer says about the product online, I feel the material, read the instructions, I check the buttons, and I take a look at and feel how the toy vibrates."
