At Satin Kiss, we like to educate our community so that everyone can live their healthiest, happiest sex life.
A while back, we wrote about the Pitfalls of Buying Sex Toys on Amazon, discussing the issues with many of the sex toys available for sale on Amazon.
We wanted to give you an example, so recently, we took a look at Amazon's list of Best Selling Sex Toys, and immediately found a clear-cut example of what consumers should be looking out for.
Number 1 on their list was the Satisfyer Pro 2: Next Generation.
This clitoral stimulator is one of the Satisfyer line's most popular and highest selling toys. It has earned a mantle of prestigious awards and the hearts of women with vulva all over the world with its revolutionary adjustable air-pressure technology, body-safe materials, high-quality features, rechargability, and affordable price!
This toy has received rave reviews from users reporting mind-blowing orgasms, some in as little as 30 seconds!
Of course, everyone who hears about it wants to get their hands on one, and with the popularity of Amazon, it's often the first place that people will look.
However, that's the WORST thing that you could do if you're looking for an authentic Satisfyer experience.
You can spot a counterfeit, because it's usually way below its usual market price.
In this listing, the Satisfyer Pro 2 NG is listed at $33.46, when it is typically listed at $49.95.
For it to be listed this low, it should raise a red flag.
As a standard, if the price is too good to be true, it probably is, and you should definitely avoid it, even if it has good reviews.
Speaking of reviews, all you have to do is take a look at the reviews to see an obvious pattern of feedback from dissatisfied customers who report their products defecting after a short period of time.
One of the reasons why Satin Kiss carries and promotes Satisfyer products is because of their commitment to quality and longevity in their products, backed by their 15-year warranty.
Unfortunately, if you purchase a counterfeit product, you run the risk of using a faulty product that could be a poorly-made counterfeit that is ineligible for their world-class warranty coverage.
What's worse than a counterfeit sex toy? A USED sex toy!
Many victims of counterfeit products have reported receiving products in open boxes, contaminated with with fingerprints, body soil and pubic hair.
This is a serious health hazard, as a person could be exposing themselves to infection by unwittingly sharing a sex toy with a complete stranger.
Anyone attempting to recreate a product doesn't care about your safety or liability, because they are hiding behind the name of a credible brand. They don't care what corners they cut, don't care about quality, and don't care about the health or satisfaction of the user.
Let's say you have a latex allergy and were expecting a silicone attachment, but the counterfeit toy has latex attachment instead. You are setting yourself up for a severe allergic reaction.
These fake toys could also cause electrical fires during charging, because of faulty wiring, or cause electrical shock when submerged under water although it's advertised as waterproof.
As an approved seller of Satisfyer products, Satin Kiss can say confidently that Satisfyer does not allow retailers to sell their products on Amazon, eBay, Craigslist and other 3rd party seller marketplaces. So, if you see it on Amazon at all, you can automatically assume that it a fake.
If you want to purchase sexual health and pleasure products, make sure it's with a reputable seller that is approved by top brands to carry their products.
