Wooden sex toy manufacturer NobEssence makes some of the most beautiful — and expensive — sex toys out there. And while most of their toys retail for upwards of $150, there is a magical place on the internet that has killer prices on NobEssence toys: SheVibe. I’ve long admired SheVibe for their freakish prices and cute site… and it turns out they’re hells of generous, too!

When SheVibe offered to help me give away a toy, I decided it had to be something from NobEssence. I am in deep, deep love with the Seduction dildo and the Romp butt plug, and I believe everyone should own a wooden sex toy. I’ve already given away a Romp, but seriously, there is always room for another wooden sex toy giveaway.

Because I love you all, the winner of this giveaway will get to choose whichever NobEssence toy they want from SheVibe — butt plug, dildo, cock ring, kegel exerciser, whichever they most desire. And this giveaway is open to my international readers!* Beautiful, yes?

Twitter trivia parties!

The most exciting way to enter this giveaway will be to attend one or both of the two Twitter parties I’ll be holding. YEAH, I’M GOING THERE. Com’n, it’ll be fun! We’ll use the hashtag #woodgasm, chat about sex toys, and each participant will earn an entry into the giveaway just for participating. I’ll also be asking trivia questions, and party-goers who are quickest to correctly answer these questions will get extra entries.

Party #1: Saturday, June 12th, 2010, 3 p.m. — 4 p.m. PST. (what time for you?)
Party #2: Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 6 p.m. — 7 p.m. PST. (what time for you?)

Be sure to follow me on Twitter beforehand! Also, in preparation for the trivia questions, here are some study materials:

  • I’d love to try the allure – I’m a fan of knobby textures and it’s shape really intrigues me.

    I already subscribe to your RSS feed via Google Reader.

    – Kyra

  • I think I would want the Tryst – it seems like just the right size for me, and I love that there is a smooth texture and a knobby texture for a little variety. The knobby end also seems like it would make the perfect handle.

    And, as far as subscriptions – I have had you in my RSS feed reader for quite a while now! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • jonsbabydoll

    I subscribe to you. ๐Ÿ˜€ I need to stalk- erm… FOLLOW your awesomeness somehow right?

    The NobEssence Seduction is absolutely awesome looking. That’s totally the one I would choose. <3 Mostly because I like the smoother design of it. Not as many bloops and shctuff. I've been exploring harder dildos like this after a mindblowing experience with my Man. I never really got the hang of them by myself, but now that he has shown me the light, I can't help but wanting to expanding my collection over and over and over again!

  • Splendwhore

    I want the Nobessence Seduction!! It’s so fucking gorgeous. I’ve never tried a wooden toy, and I desperately want this amazing sculpture to be my first. <3

  • Sarahbear

    I already subscribe to your RSS feed via mah google reader. =)

    Oh gawd! Can’t I just say all of them?! I mean, the Seduction, the Tryst and the Intrigue all look amazing. If I absolutely have to choose I think I’d like the Intrigue because it’s beautiful and the name is awesome. Plus I’ve heard it gives people awesome orgasms.

    I’ll see you at your twitter parties, lady!

    So if I’m already subscribed to your RSS feed, I already have 3 entries, is that it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think I’d choose the Intrigue, because of the variety of shapes available on it. Then again, the Fling looks wonderfully ergonomic…! I might have trouble picking.

  • Annnnd here is a post on my blog touting the giveaway: http://divergentdance.wordpress.com/2010/06/06/got-wood/ .

  • LadyInToyland

    I am subscribed to you via email! Have been for a while, and love it!

  • @wendolen: That’s right! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Okay, I know this is going to sound strange, but there is one review I simply can not get over, and I read it a lot. That is your Romp review. OMG, I need and can not live without this toy. Kris won’t buy it for me, so you’re my last hope.

  • LadyInToyland

    I love the Tryst! It’s gorgeous, sleek, and would be the ideal addition to my collection!

  • PandaDementia

    I WANT ALL OF THEM! But I think the one I want the most is the Allure. Dildos that have G-spot stimulation AND a great texture for my vaginal walls ALWAYS get me off.

    I’ve posted on my blog here: http://pandadementia.com/?p=564
    And I’ve also subscribed via RSS.

  • Cand86

    Ah, you know me . . . I want that Romp. Or, better said, my ass wants the Romp. It knows that I have not provided it with the excellent, quality sort of playthings that my pussy gets to enjoy- nothing back there has been beautifully crafted with exquisite design. There have been questionable materials. There have been painful and uncomfortable shapes. And there have been far too many makeshift items I’m surprised weren’t lost to my innards. Basically, my ass feels it’s time has come; it deserves the Romp ๐Ÿ™‚

    And while I check your site often enough that e-mail seems kinda silly, no way am I lettin’ three entries go; I subscribed via e-mail.

  • CaraVibes

    I subbed via RSS google reader.

    I would choose the Allure because it’s sleek looking and I enjoy g-spot play and knobby textures. I’ve never owned a wooden toy, and would love this alluring toy to be my first!

  • Lila

    I want a Seduction! It’s absolutely gorgeous.

    I also subscribe to you via RSS.

  • ROMP PLZ! It looks like fun!

    Although the Tryst also looks like fun… and it’s pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚

    (And I’m already subscribed to you via Google Reader)

  • Tuesday

    I’m already subscribed to your email list. I’m also subscribed to your RSS feed.

    I vote for the Intrigue. Love those dual ends. The straighter end looks like a larger version of my beloved Flow.

  • Sexorcism

    I’d welcome Linger to my toybox because it is so ecofriendly and its texture looks exciting.

  • I totally would love the Seduction. G-Spot dildos rock. ๐Ÿ™‚ They always just feel the best too. Great giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I’m pretty sure I want the Intrigue. It looks really versatile and still has that amazing smoothness that figures into all my wood fantasies. Er… you know what I mean.

    Also subscribed via email! I always visit, but the announcements (and extra entries) won’t hurt.

  • Pingback: Woodgasm Giveaway by Epiphora! « CaraVibes()

  • I would want the Fling, for the finger grips..the fullness and the G-Spot action! Plus, I have never tried a wooden dildo..

  • I already subscribe via email and rss too โ™ฅ

  • Meggie Love

    I would LOVE one of each please.. Ok seriously, if I had to choose I would want to try the Linger. Love the beaded shape graduated and the finger hold.

  • Seduction, definitely. Although I like the Linger as well. Ok, settled BOTH!

  • CaraVibes

    Here’s my blog post! ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Woohoooooo! I’m excited about this contest! I would definitely want either the Seduction because it looks like it would work well with my body (and you recommend it so highly) OR the Allure because its shape looks so interesting and delicious. This is an exciting contest and I seriously cannot wait for the Twitter parties; I love me some Twitter parties.

    Oh, and a question I’ve had (that might be obvious but still): if you hold a contest and someone enters who is already subscribed to you, do you automatically add those entries? Just wonderin’!

    And the blog entry: http://mendthiscrack.wordpress.com/2010/06/07/epiphoras-epic-woodgasm/

  • @Ashley: I can’t keep a running list of who is subscribed, so I need you to tell me and I will count you then!

  • I would love the NobEssence Seduction, in any color. I’ve had my eye on it for a while, and it looks to be a nice shape for me. What a beautiful toy. They all are. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi! I subscribed to your RSS feed a little while back, and maybe I’ll get lucky and that’ll win me a Romp!

  • I’m subscribed to you via rss and email.

  • Toygirl

    I’ve come out of hiding just to enter this contest. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d totally go for a Seduction because you rave about it so.

    Oh, and I’ve been subscribed to your feed since the dawn of time.

  • jackwild

    oh, the romp would be my choice — it looks so beautiful… i don’t have any “harder” toys at all; i’ve always stuck to silicone… but something about that wooden shape is VERY appealing…

  • jackwild

    oh! and i’m already subscribed to your RSS through google reader!

  • Goth

    I’ve never used a wood toy before, it’s seems kinda odd and exciting all at the same time! Something about the Seduction seems nice since it’s so simple yet elegant looking. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • I tweeted about this, I blogged about this. I SO WANT TO WIN THIS!

  • The Kama Mama

    It was YOUR description of the Romp that made me try anal toys for the first time. I can’t begin to say how much I want to try the Romp.

  • Cool contest. Maybe consider paginating your comments?

    I own no wood so this would be awesome. I think the Fling looks cool but I’d probably ask your opinion first XD

  • LadyInToyland

    I’ve written a blog post about the giveaway!

  • The Tryst looks absolutely delightful (and quite versatile) to me. I kind of need it to survive. Although based on your review, I might need the Romp even more because I’m just getting into anal.

    I subscribed to your RSS feed via google reader.
    I blogged about the giveaway here: http://saucyandsweetlove.blogspot.com/2010/06/epiphoras-woodgasm.html

  • It took me a really long time to decide which NobEssence toy I want. But finally, with some help from my boyfriend, I have settled on the Allure. I like the look of those bloops on the narrower end; I’ve never tried anything like that before. I think the nob thing on the other end is wider than any of my toys, but probably not too wide, especially since it narrows so quickly.

    I subscribe to your RSS feed and follow you on Twitter already.

  • I desperately want the Seduction because your reviews and FORCEFUL BEATINGS have convinced me that it’s amazing. My g-spot also wants to be caressed by a piece of wood that is not a branch I have hacked from a nearby tree. It wants class and sophistication.

    In addition to this you know bb that your posts are all up in my RSS feed and I loves it. Loves it I say.

    FINALLY I shall blog on this topic. You will receive a link to said blog post once I’m done because I am good like that. The blog post will be on the topic of WOODLAND CREATURES and include a video of how to repair a butterfly, a sheep and nobessence dils.

  • Jamie

    Ohh, they’re all so beautiful! But if I had to choose just one it’d be the Romp. I don’t have any anal toys yet, and it looks like it would be just perfect – lovely, just big enough, and safe to leave in if my Dom wants to order me to wear it around.

    I would really like the Seduction because it’s obviously superior and my g-spot is all like “GIMME BITCH.” so I have to follow her command.

    Oh, and I already subscribe to your dumb RSS feed.

  • Bri

    I want the Tryst! I love that it is essentially two toys in one. One side has the wonderful thicker smooth curves to fill you up and the other has the lovely knobs to give a changing sensation with every movement. I also love how each end doubles as the handle when you’re using the other end. Good hand placement is important to me. After all, if my wrist or hand is uncomfortable, how will I enjoy myself? There were several others I wouldn’t mind trying either, but the Tryst definitely stands out.

  • Pingback: Pleasurists #81 « Newlyinclined. New explorer.()

  • Oooh I would love the NobEssence Allure Sculptured Hardwood Dildo. I’m experimenting with dildos and just loving the idea of wood and metal as materials. I have a metal dildo at the moment and would love a wooden one–why this one in particular? Well, G-spot stimulation as well as beads! Best of both worlds! Experimentation for the win!

  • Wilhelmina

    already follow your RSS feed.

    i’d love to have the Fling. it looks like it would be wonderful for fullness & gspot stim.

    also, the twitter trivia parties are an ingenious idea ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wilhelmina
  • One of each? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I definitely want the Seduction – even the shape is seducing me! I’ve never had a wooden toy and I would love one!

    I’ve also blogged it here:

    And I subscribed to your RSS feed in my reader.

  • Ken Wilson

    I want the Rendezvous Cock Rings. My wife loves it when I wear the steel one and I would love to suprise her with a wooden one.

  • First of all, this totally rocks. You’re giving us a shot at some Nobessence awesomeness? Yay!

    I’d love to get my hands on the Intrigue. Its shape is just so deliciously yummy looking. I like smooth, hard, swooping shapes, and this looks like it would be a perfect match for me. And I’ve never tried a wooden toy before…

    I have been admiring the Tryst for a long time now — I love having different textures to play with on the same toy. Mmm.

    This post motivated me to subscribe to your blog with my feed reader!

  • Sophie Delancey

    I would definitely go for the NobEssence Intrigue Sculptured Hardwood Dildo because the g-spot/p-spot stimulation could be gentle or fairly intense depending on the angle used and the ridges and curves looks like they’d be a ton of fun. I’ve never had a wood toy before and I think it would be an amazing thing to try and review on my new site!

  • Shannon D

    Ok, can I just say that the little example squares of what the different woods look like on the NobEssence site are gorgeous? My dad is a woodworker who used to make cabinets and doors and stuff for wealthier people, and he has some serious skills. My bedroom door is a dutch door with a top and bottom that swing open separately, and it has some really gorgeous woods in it. One of them is purple heart, and I believe there’s some wenge in it as well. ANYWAY. These woods are obviously gorgeous. I think that one thing I really like about NobEssence toys (or at least the idea of them because I haven’t seen or used one) is the uniqueness… because no two pieces of wood are the same and obviously no two NobEssence toys will be -exactly- the same. I’m really attracted to a lot of them, including the Intrigue and the Tryst, but I think the Seduction interests me most. I think it just looks really great, and smooth, and natural, and really fun.

    Also, I subscribe by email ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’d really like to try out the fling, I like that it has the hole to slip your fingers into and that would help me to keep a really good grip. Plus, the g-spot stim is a huge added bonus for me.
    Great giveaway, thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sir

    I subscribed via email to you! #1

  • Sir

    I love the Provoke flogger..it’s so beautiful, and its handle is the same shape as Seduction. It’s so beautiful..I’ve wanted it for a long time.

  • Was already sub’d toi your rss, but now your email too (my readers been screwing up!)

  • lovesickrobot

    The Linger, definitely. It would work well for anal of course but I can imagine those bumps would feel really good vaginally too, if they were moving fast. And during partner play, the hole in the handle makes it an extension of your lover’s finger. It looks so practical and beautiful.

    Also, my blogpost about the giveaway is here: http://lovesickrobot.com/2010/06/08/three-things-deadlines

    Also, I subscribed via e-mail. Can you tell I really want a Linger?

  • on twitter I am @akinkydichotomy I am already an rss subscriber and as for which nobessence piece I want the most well that is hard since they all look fun, but being forced to pick I would say I want Incite. I love floggers and this also looks like it would make a great tail

    Seduction. It’s all about the G spot!

    After very careful consideration, I do not think my life will be complete until I have a Romp in my possession. It looks amazing and it’s gorgeous and I want it. And that is all!

  • Just A. Girl

    I’d love to win the Fling because I love fullness and there is just something alluring about those finger holds carved into the wood.

  • Jo

    I love the Intrigue. It looks incredibly sleek and has a great shape.

  • Ooh, shiny things! I would be torn between the Romp, as I am really getting into anal sex and toys and the Seduction. *purrs* I am a big fan of gspot orgasms, but sadly only have one gspot toy and it doesn’t really do much for me.

    Also, I am totally stalking you via twitter (_Gingerkitten) and email now. I’d been meaning to for a month or so, and the contest was the kick in the arse I needed. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • namelesschaos

    1) I want the Romp because I heard so many good thing about it and I like anal toys. Plus I need a wood anal toy. I mean I’ve stuck silicone, plastic, glass, aluminum, stainless steal and even platinum up there but no wood this makes me said.

    2) I’ve been an RSS subscriber for a long time now

    3) I have blogged about the awesome woodgasm contest: http://namelesschaos.com/2010/06/hey-epiphora-woodgasm-contest/

  • buttons

    So I just discovered the subscribe via email. I can’t wait to get updates on my BB! I have never heard of NobEssence but after looking them up, they have beautiful products! I am most excited about the NobEssence Fling. I love the design with the two finger holes in it. I think that it would be a welcome feature as basically every toy requires you to grip around it, not always through it! It would be amazing to try this model. I didn’t know wood sex toys existed, but thanks to your blog I now have a few new ideas for my x-rated wishlist!

  • Hello Epiphora! I would loveeee to have the Romp =) It looks sensational and I can only imagine how good it feels.

    I just posted about this contest over on my blog: http://occasionalkitten.blogspot.com/2010/06/has-it-been-this-long.html. Aaaand, I am already subscribed by email.

    I’m feeling the NobEssence Fling. I’ve never had a wooden toy, but I definitely follow your reviews and I know that the NobEssence Toys can be great. I always am looking for new ways to freak out my boyfriend and this will probably be no exception.
    Been trying to squirt and follow your blog to help get myself to that point… Haven’t been able to do it yet, but this will probably help me to achieve this goal <3<3
