    Neither i or my OH mind trying anything (within reason) and i will always give a 100% review on the product.
    I have chosen a few items based on what reviews have been written and i would love the opportunity to repay that by reviewing for others.

    Hello and thank you for the interest, this post would be good for you to pop a look at :) 

    Your tester wish list needs to contain items that are on the tester list only yes

    Please please please all that want to review for us read this thread .

    I have had to issue a few warnings to testers recently about sharing secret info on items. This includes right here in the froum, you can not share details including pictures until it is live. 

    It will result in removal from the tester program , potentially with no warning. 

    Can I share details of my item on this forum ? 

    No,This includes images.  They are secret testers until they potentially go live. Failure to keep them hush hush can result in removal from the tester programme. If you have a question about a secret tester please contact customer care or myself.

    Considering myself warned, even though I think I'm the don of discretion.

    I suppose part of the joy of testing is being able to get excited and share with others what you are testing. There's no doubt that eceryone loves a tester, and secret ones are all the more exciting, but you do lose the ability to share with others, and I think that's what the grumbles are about!

    Is there anyway we can be notified when a secret item goes live? I've had my fair share (thanks!!), but am always a bit clueless as to whether they've actually launched or not...!

    yes 

    It would probably invlove me checking and manually updating you all. Sadly I would not be able to with my workflow.

    But worth suggesting just in case there is something techy to put in place that does not invlove me sending a batch of emails etc :)

    I usually check the "what's new" sections of lingerie and toys regularly when I'm waiting for something secret to go live so I can talk / blog about it. It's been working for me :)

    I'm really new to being a part of the community and buying things (although I've hovered for a while!) and just wanted to clarify: does that mean we need to have been picked as a tester first from the sex toys tester list, before we can be considered for secret testing?

    I'd also love to know as I've bought many items from LoveHoney and never been disappointed. I've written detailed reviews on nearly all of the items and really enjoyed it so I would LOVE to become one of the sex toy testers. Just wondering the best way to get chosen for the first time, in order to subsequently be picked again for secret testers.

    Hi There 

    Thanks for taking teh plunge. 

    It is not a required detail but a preferred process. That way we can see how the reviewer handles deadlines and writing a review for us on a live product.

    Looking forward to some more reviews :)

    As stated above this thread is the best start :

    /community/forums/inside-lovehoney/1518532-reviewing-as-a-sex-toy-tester-hints-tips/

    Good luck :)

    **Bump** 

    When will the product be sent?

    Sometimes on the same day as receiving the 'you have been selected email' . Sometimes I find reviewers ready for the samples to come in.  I will always mention if the samples are not ready yet in the posting thread . So if this has been mentioned please expect the item within a month.

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but would someone be emailed inviting them to be a tester and then not chosen and hear nothing?

    i ask because a few months ago i was emailed saying that i had been selected to be a secret tester based on my postings on a particular thread on here. I replied the same day saying that i would be interested and then heard nothing.

    i knew it was a range that was yet to be launched so i assumed i wouldnt hear anything until the item was dispatched. After a few months i heard nothing so emailed and had no reply. A few days later i saw that the new range had been released complete with reviews.

    I have been chosen as a tester in this way before so was a bit surprised by the chain of events this time.
