Helping men choose lingerie - Christmas quiz and guide
I edit a lingerie weblog and we've just launched a comprehensive Lingerie Gift Guide for Christmas and beyond, which has two components - a quiz to help men narrow down the styles, and a guide to help him choose specific gifts.

Quiz: We've created a quiz for men who want to buy their partner lingerie; the quiz will recommend one of seven lingerie personalities for the man, and give him some guidance about what to buy her.
Gift Guide: We've also built gift guide tailored to the lingerie personalities from the quiz; once someone takes the quiz, they can browse by personality to find a perfect gift for that personality type.

The overall goal is to make men aware of the huge variety of beautiful lingerie out there to choose from, and to help him narrow that down to an intimate and romantic gift that really reflects his partner's taste. We've got everything from simple cotton all the way up to bondage gear, and have worked hard to choose pieces that women would really love to receive as a gift.

I would love to hear your feedback, and hope you find beautiful lingerie!

That's fun. We'll be taking the quiz separately tonight and comparing answers.

This is fun. I took it for myself and I think it's pretty spot on. I'm a lingerie sophisticate... ooh la la!
I really like your picks for the romantic one as well.

Hmmm for a second there I thought you were asking me how I got it on. :)

Anyways, despite differing in answers on 3 questions, the software picked Lingeri Sophisticate for both of us and she liked several of the choices that were laid out.

hahaha no, just the lingerie i'm interested in!

I'm delighted to hear that you both got the same result, and i'm glad she liked some of the picks!

Girl tested: this picked out some ghastly lingerie for me. Some of the other profiles were nice but it didn't really peg my tastes at all.

I'm sorry to hear that, Phalene -- if you wouldn't mind MeMailing me the details, I'll see if i can tweak the quiz. Thank you for trying it out!

The quiz successfully picked my lingerie personality (sophisticate) too. I think picking the right size is going to be the big challenge for most men. Maybe you can give them some guidance on that.
