What Is A Sex Toy Tester?

A sex toy tester is someone who approaches sex toys with excitement and genuine curiosity, trying them out and later sharing their honest experiences with others through helpful and thorough reviews.

Yes, sex toy reviewer jobs do exist and people actually perform this sort of “work” in real life.

And it’s a good thing that they do — because it provides many benefits not only for the tester but the public at large.

Benefits Of Being A Sex Toy Tester

Trying sex toys offers many perks — namely the ability to experiment with sexual pleasure in new and exciting ways, all the time!

The benefits of being a sex toy reviewer, however, go much deeper than that — pun totally intended.

When testing adult toys, you have an opportunity to:

  • Receive free, quality sex toys and other sexual aids
  • Expand your collection of pleasure tools with no monetary investment
  • Gain intimate, firsthand knowledge of new advancements in sex tech
  • Learn more about your body’s sexual responses
  • Enjoy all the orgasms you can handle
  • Help others to gain a better understanding of what different products can offer them
  • Provide valuable feedback to sex toy manufacturers for improvements to a product’s functionality and design
  • Promote healthier relationships with sexuality while influencing the normalization of sexual pleasure and self-love at the same time

Sex toy testers are often the first to explore new products that haven’t been made available to the public yet.

When working as an adult toy tester, you’re also helping others to make informed decisions whenever they consider putting their hard-earned money toward a product they’re not sure will be worth the investment.

At the same time, your work also provides valuable feedback to manufacturers — after all, they can’t improve sex toy design and functionality without honest reviews from real-world users.

Finally, testing sex toys for free and talking about your experiences further helps to normalize and promote open conversations about sexual pleasure.

Who Can Be A Sex Toy Tester?

Anyone with a set of genitals and an interest in experimenting with adult products can receive free sex toy samples to review, however, for our purposes, there are a few critical aspects to the role.

Sex toy reviewers must:

  • Be willing and able to share your honest opinions in written and video reviews
  • Be over the age of 18
  • Be a resident of the United States
  • Have native-level English skills
  • Be willing and able to consent to the use of your name and likeness in associated articles and video content
  • Have the ability to record HD video with quality lighting and sound

How To Become A Sex Toy Tester For Women’s Health Interactive

Now that we’ve got you excited about the prospect of trying and reviewing sex toys and you understand the benefits that come with it, let’s take a closer look at what it really takes to create sex toy reviews for our site.

Skills Required For Testing Sex Toys

You don’t need a fancy degree or a particularly lengthy skillset to work as an adult product tester for us, however, there are a few important skills required for the role.

To become a sex toy reviewer for Women’s Health Interactive, you need to have: 

  • An enthusiasm for sexual wellness and having open discussions about it
  • A willingness to try new things and share your honest, objective opinions — good or bad
  • An interest in performing thorough research so you can provide detailed information about product specifications, pros and cons, and other important information in your review
  • The ability to follow detailed testing instructions
  • The ability to express yourself through the written word and first-person recorded video


That’s a pretty short list.

What Does A Sex Toy Tester Do?

Sex toy testing involves trying a product — several times — to gain firsthand experience with it while “scoring” its performance across multiple categories before creating an in-depth review.

Women’s Health Interactive will provide you with everything you need to know so you’re never left wondering what to do.

In the simplest steps, working as a sex toy reviewer for us involves:

  1. Receiving free sex toy samples
  2. Using the sex toys on yourself and/or with a partner — repeatedly
  3. Logging your honest experiences on digital scorecards, which we provide
  4. Writing any commentary in the provided scorecard
  5. Filming and submitting raw footage for a video review
  6. Taking and submitting high-definition photographs of the product(s)

Before trying sex toys for product reviews on Women’s Health Interactive, you’ll first be asked to provide a little bit of information about your stimulation preferences and level of experience.

This helps to ensure that any toy you’re assigned to review offers the type(s) of stimulation your body best responds to.

For instance, we wouldn’t ask you to work as a dildo tester if you don’t enjoy penetration of any kind.

Similarly, a vibrator tester would need to enjoy vibration as a form of stimulation.

After you are assigned an adult toy review, you’ll receive the product and be given up to 10 days to test it out a few times after it arrives.

We provide scorecards for logging your experience in a way that provides you with a detailed recording to refer to when filming your video review.

After the sex toy trial period has ended, you will have 3 days to complete the rest of the review — including the raw video footage.

You do NOT need video editing skills; our team handles that part.

After everything is submitted, our team preps it for publication so all that’s left for you to do is to enjoy your new sex toy as often as you want!

Everyone is welcome and there are toys to suit any stimulation preference, no matter what kind of genitals you’re rocking.

How Much Do Sex Toy Testers Make?

Sex toy testers for Women’s Health Interactive are not paid in cash; testers instead will receive product(s) for free in exchange for their honest opinions and thorough review.

How Do I Get Paid Testing Sex Toys?

Success as a sex toy tester — particularly if you have a way with the written word — may lead to paid editorial and long-form review assignments with us down the road.

Think of testing for us as an “audition” of sorts for a potentially larger paid role.

How Old Do I Have To Be To Test Sex Toys?

Although sex toys are for anyone who is of an age to consent to explore their sexuality, for our purposes, those who review adult products and sexual aids must be at least 18 years old.

In Conclusion
