I feel like I’ve only just gotten started with toy reviews, and just last week, I received an email to review something pretty special. The message came from a team of engineers in Oslo, a division of a larger engineering firm, that asked me to beta-test a new product. I was absolutely intrigued and took a look at their website for more details. Shortly thereafter, I accepted, quite excited. Roughly a week later, I could barely contain my excitement when a package was delivered to my doorstep.
This past week, I finally got a break from learning French after almost 3 months of daily classes. It’s been pretty bad trying to come up with any creative energy when you get burnt out by the afternoon, constantly translating what you hear in your head, then quickly responding with something grammatically appropriate. C’est fatiguant, câlice. So you can imagine how happy I was to find that the beginning of my week off and the delivery of the 2-in-1 Pocket Pussy Stroker Sleeve by PALOQUETH just happened to coincide.
This review began when someone I follow on Twitter shared a tweet by Paloqueth offering free toys in exchange for a review. I had been considering trying to add toy reviews to my site for a while but assumed it would be years before I had a reputation or reach that companies might find viable. So, I saw this as my shot to dip a toe in the water, as it were. I know some of the bigger toy companies out there, and some of the smaller ones, but I hadn’t heard of Paloqueth until that day. Doing some research, I found that their site’s blog goes back only as far as January of 2018, but other records show the company has existed for as long as 2013.
