    Hi, this might seem a silly question but it is genuine.

Apologies for the silly question.

    Hey KMM

    That's entirely up to you!

    I would suggest past tense as you're reviewing something you've tried rather than something you are in the process of trying.

    (Eg: I write all of mine in past tense as I'm reviewing a past event of me trying the product: "I bought this item..." "I found the fit to be..." "I felt sexy/stunning/like a sack of potatoes" etc). 

    When it comes to lingerie, I always add a small paragraph saying "I am 5'5" tall, and a UK dress size 10-12 and found the garment fit me perfectly/well/badly!"

    So perhaps at that part you could say "when I bought this garment I was a UK size XX" and comment on the fit that way?

    Great! Thank you Jess for the fast response, much appreciated.

    Hey J-Curious

    What do you mean share your HRT? 

    Do you mean share your journey? 

    I hope you don't mean sharing hormones! 🤪

    Good morning Leanne. I've been reading as much as possible about good
    reviews and sex toy testers and I saw that in the 'Housekeeping' thread
    (the one linked in the sticky 'Review - all you need to know' post) that
    Jess said that a Sex Toy Tester wishlist can have different stuff
    included that's not specifically on the Sex Toy Tester list as this
    makes it easier to get a feel for what that potential tester likes. Her
    post was from a few years ago, but I was wondering if this still was the
    case? I think other people have told me differently, and that I should
    keep it as close to up-to-date as humanly possible. Which is your
    preference?

    Hey Ian, It is best to have less than 10 items in the list and some of those do NEED to be from the tester list. So, if we have 10 or more items listed on the tester page, then there isn't really room for anything else. ************************************************************************************************************************* I recently removed all the items so that people could start from scratch as some people had 50 plus items, which is just a nightmare for me to sieve through, so quite simply I won't.  Also, if a wishlist has nothing in it form our tester list, that potential reviewer will never show on my list. *********************************************************************************************************************** So the answer is yes and no. We prefer you don't have more than what is on the list, but if you do and it is less than 10 items it is not the end of the world and you may still get picked.

    Excellent. Clean list it is. 🙂 ************************** Have you
    considered having a 'Sex Toy Tester' handbook? I've been working my way
    through all the info and linked threads, but I have to admit it's a bit
    sprawling and sometimes contradictory. Having a pdf with it all in would
    be great. And if you had a '2018' one then people would know that the
    information in it was bang up-to-date.
