Advertising Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in what I provide as content creator, toy reviewer, and sex positive professional.

For those new to this site, I’m best known for hosting “Sex Ed 102: all the things you didn’t learn…but should have”, a popular web series on YouTube that’s designed to shed light on the topic of healthy sexuality, pleasure products, sexual techniques, contraception options, and STI information.

Since 2007 I’ve been at the forefront of the online sex positive movement, including working with manufacturers, retailers, production companies, and University programs, all with the intention of creating an environment where readers and viewers feel inspired to explore their sexuality, while also getting the honest, reliable and open-minded answers they need.

Over the last 9 years I’ve worked hard to create a brand companies would feel comfortable working with and advertising against.

Whether you’re interested in…

  • reaching a large audience via brand integration and/or product placements
  • increasing your companies online presence via banner ads or text links
  • creating attractive and eye catching banner advertisements specifically designed for your brand
  • providing products for review to an audience of 10,000+ or getting your product in the hands of other reviewers
  • hosting a give-away or promotion specifically targeted for an adult market
  • sponsoring a sex positive educator while also advertising your brand

…I’ve got you covered!

What I have to offer:

  • While my website is aimed at adults 18+, my primary target market leans toward singles and couples between the ages of 20-45 who are sexually curious, intelligent, professional, and looking for an established resource in the realm of adult novelties, sexuality, and sex ed.
  • The content I create is respectful, professional, engaging, entertaining, and tastefully done, providing an opportunity to advertise against a premium brand.
  • My viewers trust is something I have worked very hard to gain and something I will not jeopardize. This works in your favor as my vouching for the item will place your product in a position of being a ‘trusted brand’ among my viewership. If you want a great review, manufacture and/or offer me a great product. It’s that simple.
  • I’m a Social Media butterfly having gained over 7,500+ followers on twitter (real, not bought), a collective 3,325+ friends and fans on facebook, over 200+ followers on tumblr, 935+ followers on pinterest, 450 collective followers on google+, among others. All of these numbers continue to grow on a daily basis.
  • To ensure that my content reaches a large audience each written review and/or video is posted to every social media account I frequent (twitter, facebook, reddit, pinterest, google+, etc).
  • (VIDEO SPECIFIC) I’ve gained over 17,000,000 (yes, that’s 17 million!) collective views and 37,000 + subscribers on YouTube, with each video gaining a minimum of 3,000 – 7,000 unique video views within the first week of being online. From there the number of views continue to grow slowly but surely.
  • Text and banner ads are shown on every post without exception, including reviews, pages and otherwise, ensuring your content reaches it’s maximum audience.
  • Access to a far reaching built in audience that’s interested in adult themed content.

Product Reviews

My main focus has always been providing an honest, reliable, and open minded review, while also offering the “best of the best” to my viewers with an emphasis on affordability, quality, safety, and ease of use.  If there is a product that does not work, is poorly made, or contains harmful chemicals, I will not positively represent or recommend it.  I firmly believe it’s because of this attention to detail, knowledge base and honesty that I have won over such a large and devoted viewership – something I am not willing to jeopardize, for any reason.

Materials: Keeping with the ‘best of the best‘ theme, I only accept products that are non-porous and non-toxic, this means NO jelly or rubber materials. They don’t have to be expensive, but they do need to be body safe.  Materials that I will review are: borosilicate glass, ceramic, wood, silicone (pure, not a blend), stainless steel, and ABS plastic. I may accept TPR/TPE, but it is unlikely.

Retailers and Manufacturers: At the present date I receive many of the products I review at no financial cost to me through different vendors or manufacturers seeking the same exposure you are interested in. As such, my focus is on building lasting relationships with companies that have a direct affiliate program, or in the case of manufacturers, are sold through one of the many retailers I am currently affiliated with. The minimum commission I am willing to accept is 15%, anything less isn’t worth my time and effort. Also, it has been my experience that unless I am reviewing for a company on a regular basis (bi-monthly) it isn’t worth my time, sales are more likely with regular posts.

*If you are a retailer that does not host an affiliate program, I highly suggest you set one up as many of the high profile bloggers and vloggers will not review for companies that don’t offer them a way to financially benefit from their hard work. Yes, reviewing is work.

Rates: 

Due to the amount of time and effort that goes into my reviews, which includes but is not limited to;

  • taking the time out of my schedule to test the product at least 5 times
  • writing a thoughtful, professional, and engaging review
  • providing links to your store/website (which aides in Search Engine Optimization)
  • photographing, editing, and uploading original images
  • spreading through my social media outlets (twitter, facebook, tumblr, pinterest, reddit google+, etc)
  • managing comments and answering questions
  • directing viewers to your website for the sale of your product

I do need to charge a onetime fee for my time and effort. The amount is fair, however it is something I think is reasonable for the work I put in.

*Just to be clear, I expect to be paid for the work I do, not for my opinion; any time spent reviewing for your company is time I could spend making a living elsewhere. This is not a hobby for me, this is a job. Just like you get paid for your job, I am good at what I do and deserve to be paid for mine.

Please contact me via the form below for current rates.

Disclaimer: It should be understood that once an item is sent my way, the item is mine to keep and I am not expected to send it back or pay for it if you aren’t happy with my review or the time it takes to review. I reserve the right to post my opinion and experiences as they happened, with honesty and in an unbiased fashion, so that my readers/viewers can make an informed decision. On that note, I understand that bodies are different and what works for me, may or may not work for another, as such I will do my best to be fair and open minded when reviewing. However, I will not sugar coat if a product is crappy. I will also not simply bash a product for entertainments sake or to gain ‘click-through’ traffic. That isn’t what I’m about. I may offer the review for you to read before it goes live, however I do not offer editorial control over my work or opinion.

Note: Due to the large number of products that are sent my way, each review will take anywhere from one to three months from the date it’s received to create the review. This time frame allows me to test the product in various places/ways, while also granting me the ability to provide as much info as possible without totally burning out.

Please also see the my Review Info & Terms page for further information.

 

Guest/Sponsored Posts

As previously stated my readers/viewers trust is something I have worked hard to gain and is not something I am willing to jeopardize. As such, I am extremely selective with whom I allow the sharing of guest/sponsored posts. I need to know in advance which digital media company you represent and/or which company is interested in sponsoring the post. Being someone who appreciates transparency it is my professional responsibility to ask.

Only after reading will I decide if the article is relevant to the site’s interests and whether or not it would be a good fit for my audience. On that note, I reserve the right to alter content with the intent of making sure it is grammatically correct, reads well, and does not come across as a ‘spam’ post. My readers do not deserve to be spammed.

At the current date I do not accept any duplicate content. All guest posts must be unique for KaraSutraReviews.com and not something found elsewhere.  Should I find similar or duplicate content anywhere online after publication, the content will be removed (without refund).

Sponsored posts will remain online for an agreed upon period of time, be it 6 months, 1 year, or indefinitely, with the rates negotiated accordingly.

Note: All payments must be made via Paypal prior to the ad being placed. I cannot make any guarantees on click through rates.  I will allow up to 3 links within a post. Before any final agreements I must personally approve the site(s) and/or any product(s) I am linking to. No refunds.

Video Reviews/Sponsored Videos

Sex Ed 102 is a web show that is informative, fun, and unabashedly frank. It delves into the many aspects of sexual wellness that are otherwise ignored or mishandled. Sex advice and product reviews dominate the show’s content, all sprinkled with my signature style.

Since 2007 I’ve worked to create an environment where readers and viewers feel inspired to explore their sexuality, while also getting the honest, reliable and open-minded answers they need. As such, I only wish to work with companies that have the same views as mine; an emphasis on body safe options where sex toys are concerned, creating content that is respectfully sex positive, and offering informed, honest, and insightful videos that engage and educate my viewers on a variety of topics.

Over the last 8 years I’ve gained over 17,000,000 (yes, that’s 17 million!) collective views and 37,000 + subscribers on YouTube, with each video gaining a minimum of 3,000 – 7,000 unique video views within the first week of being online. From there the number of views continue to grow slowly but surely.

 

Video Reviews:

Depending on my experience with a product and whether or not it is one I feel my audience will benefit from, I may choose to create a video review for it or include it within an episode of my Sex Ed 102 video series. If you have an interest in products for review, I highly suggest inquiring about this option to gain further exposure for your brand.

Materials: Keeping with the ‘best of the best’ theme, I only accept products that are non-porous and non-toxic, this means NO jelly or rubber materials. They don’t have to be expensive, but they do need to be body safe.  Materials that I will review are: borosilicate glass, ceramic, wood, silicone (pure, not a blend), stainless steel, and ABS plastic. I may accept TPR/TPE, but it is unlikely.

Rates:

  • writing a script
  • filming and editing the video
  • uploading the video to YouTube (can take up to 3hrs)

Sponsored Videos

Alternatively, whether it’s hosting a g-spot guide with accompanying products, informing about eco-friendly sex toys, or offering helpful tips and suggestions when it comes to having sex in the shower, I am actively searching out sponsorships for my Sex Ed 102 videos, which are meant to cover “all the things you didn’t learn… but should have” like tips, tricks and suggestions, how to’s, health and wellness topics, safer sex practices… basically everything and anything that’s sex positive and highly informative.  If you are a manufacturer, retailer, involved in an educational program, production company, or media group, I’d love to speak with you.
