When Review Blogging Goes Wrong

...very very wrong!

No doubt there are some great perks to review blogging. I enjoy discovering new products and companies as well as sharing such finds with you. I know some of you skip right over the review/giveaway/advertisement posts and that's fine. I post regular content because that is why I originally started blogging. This month is a bit more inundated with reviews and giveaways as we all gear up for Christmas (so check out the Holiday Gift Guide! TONS of free stuff).

Occasionally I bite off more than I can chew. Despite having a rather large mouth and being accustom to stretching my boundaries, even I was taken aback when a certain review item arrived. Most often the adult toy company for which I review (they think I'm a sexpert...heh) sends fun stuff I enjoy sharing. And sometimes I get a product I have no idea what to do with.

Er...well...I knew what to do with it but quite honestly it scared me. I had no idea what to write and really just wasn't sure I even wanted to take it out of the box. I text Irishman a picture after it arrived and his response was "cool!"...I was confused. After further communication it became clear he didn't really look at the photo. It only went down hill from there. I sort of just set it aside and forgot about it. Lil Duck can't read and the box was high enough that she couldn't see into it...others could though.

NOTE TO SELF: when you review sex toys, be sure to put them up before showing your home to potential renters and/or a real estate agent...


Also, if you decide to relocate the item out of the house so you can prolong just a bit longer having to write the review, be sure its in a bag or box or something discrete. When you stop by a friend's house to get boxes and her son loads them in your trunk and spies a strap on set? Lets just say it got REAL AWKWARD!

I should at least get points for creative uses of a product...

I'm the one you had that conversation with, and I'm laughing all over again after reading it. That strap on has provided me with SO much laughter this last month

Your way of fending off intruders would be much scarier!!!

Boobies said...

I think a strap on is a perfectly acceptable decorative accent to any home. LMAO!!!

Sandy said...

OMG!! This made me laugh so hard. I am guilty of skipping the review posts....especially when they are kid related...never had kids and neither did my brother or sisters. At 47 I am the youngest in the family....kinda odd huh?

"wipes off screen again" I can totally visualize to jumping out from the shadow yelling caught you with a strap on that would totally scare the pee out of any intruder. I'm thinking they wouldn't know whether to run screaming or get nekkid..lol
