About My Sex Toy Guide

Our Mission

My Sex Toy Guide was founded in 2016 with the mission to inform and entertain through the content we create. We are unapologetic in our beliefs and values and have a burning desire to make everyone has the sex life they deserve, independent of their background, sexuality, or gender identity.

Our Values

1. Humor: We take our work very seriously, but we don’t take ourselves seriously.

2. Trust: We only test and recommend products we wholeheartedly support – and use ourselves.

3. Vulnerability: We have honest conversations about where we are and where we want to go – and we are comfortable with change.

4. Curiosity: We are constant learners, asking dumb questions when needed, and are comfortable throwing things at the wall until something sticks.

5. Inclusivity: We value the diversity of ethnicity, age, gender, ability, religion, experience, class, size, and more – everyone is welcome at My Sex Toy Guide!

Our Review Process

Each year, our busy product testers review hundreds of products to help you on your journey to better sex life. We aim to do the time-consuming research work for you, saving you time and money, and making the shopping experience fun and exciting. Just sit back and relax! We got you!

Our goal is to be the most trusted sex toy review site on the Internet. We will never publish anything unless it has gone through our rigorous product review process and been approved by our independent reviewers. Now, let’s have a closer look at our review process.

1. How We Pick Products

We use data, research, interviews, market demand, and gut instinct to choose products for our reviews. We also immediately eliminate any non-safe materials, like jelly or anything else we deem unsafe. Then we buy the products, send them to our tester, and leave them plenty of time to test the products, typically at least one month.

2. How We Test Products

Our testers are experienced sex toy users and gurus. They test products at their optimal settings to find the perfect combinations of vibration, pressure, intensity, temperature, and other necessary features. They test in the shower, in bed, on the couch, in the bath, and even in a sauna!

Once the products arrive, we open the box, take out the product, and inspect the packaging. We remove any accessories or materials and visually inspect the product. We take pictures, including close-up photos. In addition, we always record an unboxing video, so our readers get a full visual view of the products.

If the product claims to be waterproof, we always make sure to test it with water

How We Rate Products

We rate products on a scale of 1-5, where 5 is the best and 1 is the worst. The ratings are based on multiple factors, including:

  1. Comfort – Is the product comfortable to use? Is it easy to insert and remove?
  2. Design – How does the product look? Is it aesthetically pleasing? Does it have nice packaging?
  3. Features – How many functions do the product offer? Does it come with any extra accessories?
  4. Performance – How does the product perform? Is it powerful and easy to use?
  5. Price – How much does the product cost?
  6. Safety – Is the product safe to use?
