Is Adam and Eve Violating FTC Rules?

I got several emails this weekend from fellow bloggers who think that Adam and Eve is playing dirty, not just with the bloggers but with customers.

It seems Adam and Eve is paying for what are called sponsored stories.  What this means is that Adam and eve writes a review of their own sex toys, movies, lubes whatever and they pay the blogger to post that article on their blog.

Several bloggers have done so and they made note to their readers that the article was a sponsored article because they are REQUIRED TO DO SO by the Federal Trade Commission.

Adam and Eve then with holds payment until the blogger removes the part about the article being a sponsored article.

Now, I don’t buy that Adam and Eve doesnt know about the law,  it’s not exactly obscure. so this seems like a pretty scummy thing to do any way you look at it.

I am awaiting a response from Katy Zvolerin at Adam and Eve  but I’m not holding my breath….

At least they had enough sense not to pull that BS with me……

And my readers can bet that if I endorse some product or company or someone it is because I have dealt with them and I personally use that product!
