It’s been three years since I reviewed the NobEssence Seduction (oh my god, I’m OLD), and in that time, my extreme fervor for this dildo may have gotten lost somewhere, confined to emails and little Twitter freakoutsย and cruel Tumblr ultimatums. But case in point: I once had a dream I got angry, accidentally broke my Seduction, and just started bawling.

Luckily, I’ve found the perfect way to revive my love for the Seduction inย Nuala MacMoragh, a reader who bought it based on my recommendation and was just as impressed. I asked her to take a photo of her Seduction, which is made of Padauk wood, and share her experience with y’all.

NobEssence Seduction in Padauk

After a little email banter about our mutual love of the Pure Wand, Epiphora suggested that I might enjoy the NobEssence Seduction, because I wanted something thicker. About a month later, I found one for a good price.

I had only about an hour alone when my Seduction arrived, so I told myself that I would just look at it. My jaw dropped when I saw the thick end of the toy. At 1 7/8″, it made all my other toys look wimpy. I worried that I might’ve gotten an unusually large one-off, so I measured it, but it was indeed within spec. Even if I could never work up to the thick end, I rationalized the smaller end wouldn’t be ice cold at room temperature like the Pure Wand.

After cleaning it, I ran my fingers over the smooth surface. With 40 minutes to spare, I told myself that I’d just slip it down into my yoga pants “just for a minute.” Moments later, my pants were halfway down my thighs, and found myself grinding the curve of the toy against my vulva while I rocked the ball into my G-spot. It thrilled me that I could stimulate my clit and G-spot simultaneously, cupping the blunt end with my palm like a joystick.

I started to crave more thickness. I flipped it over, adding some lube to the thicker end. It felt impossibly huge pressed against my opening. I fingered my clit, and pressed on. Moments later, when I opened up to it, the stretch and intense fullness had me cumming immediately, spouting profanity.

Over the next few days, I made myself sore using it the same way. I wondered if I’d ever get the thick end in for long enough to manipulate it against my G-spot. I have since spent a lot of quality time with my Seduction. Now I am able take the blunt end completely — the fullness and hard pressure against my G-spot consistently cause satisfying, violent multiple orgasms. I’m really happy with the Seduction, and I thank Epiphora from the bottom of my you-know-where for recommending it.

You are SO WELCOME, Nuala! I agree that this dildo is jaw-dropping in the stimulation it provides.

Also, if there were a contest for number of toys someone has bought on my recommendation and subsequently loved, I’mย pretty sure Nuala would win. Besides the Pure Wand and Seduction, she has acquired and adored the Eroscillator (and I quote: “I’ll NEVER, EVER regret the 229.95 I spent on that Eroscillator. It’s a must have.”), Crystal Twist, Maverick, Splash, Pure Plugs, Mustang, Cush O2, Echo, Star Delight, Mona 2, Alumina line, Bootie, Comet G Wand, Luna Beads, Romp… and that’s a pared-down list.

It’s possible I have dictated almost her entire toybox. Give that woman a prize.

Anyone else love the NobEssence Seduction with the heat of a thousand suns?

    I concur, Nuala is a badass for taking her cues from someone with know-how. And the more voices to praise these toys the better!

    My list of recommended purchases is: Sliquid (if it counts), NobE Romp, Njoy Pure Plug Large, Tantus Echo, Vixen Maverick, Vixen Randy, LELO Ella, and the Jollet. Granted, some of these turned out not to work for me (too small, too firm, too long) but others were fucking homeruns, like the Randy (since I got that bugger I hardly grab anything else, it’s BAD)

    Quality toys are expensive, so reviewers like Piph are a great resource. Less money wasted, more inspiration gotten.

  • That Virgin Who Can’t Drive

    I must admit my last several toy purchases have been based on your recommendations. Due to some mad couponing skills and patiently biding my time until a good, site-wide sale came along, I was recently able to acquire the Pure Wand, Mustang, Stronic Eins, Sliquid H2O, Leaf Vitality (I’d been eyeballing it and your review of the Life gave me the push to go ahead and get it), and other goodies from Good Vibrations all for an insanely good price.

    Verdicts so far:
    – Pure Wand – I just… I can’t even. Insane orgasms. INSANE.
    – Sliquid – A bottle of perfection.
    – Stronic Eins – I haven’t tried it yet as I only just finished charging it, but I can attest to the fact that it indeed sounds like a distant helicopter.
    – Leaf Vitality – Haven’t received it yet because it was backordered. :[

    So, all in all, I can safely say that I will continue to take your recs. Thank you very, very much.

    Every time I read about something like the NobEssence Seduction, or something like the comment left by That Virgin Who Can’t Drive, I become jealous that I don’t have a vagina. Actually, that’s not quite right. What I really want is the ability to borrow a vagina on occasion because having a penis is pretty damn great too. As a matter of fact I’d be more than willing to participate in some sort of genital lend/lease program. My hope is that somewhere, in a secret laboratory, scientists are diligently working on this very problem. Or on world peace….either one would be great.

  • That Virgin Who Can’t Drive

    Update: the Stronic Eins is indeed amazing, but after VixSkin, Fun Factory’s silicone feels like sandpaper. My vagina is demanding to know what on Earth I was thinking trying the Mustang first.

  • Oddkin

    Everytime Kelly in ‘Let Me Borrow That Top’ says “fuck you with something hard and sandpapery” I think of FF silicone. I used to have the Magnum. Now you know why I USED to have it, and don’t anymore.

  • nuala macmoragh

    You have an ass, and The Seduction is a yummy thing to fuck it with.

  • That Virgin Who Can’t Drive

    Haaaaaa, I definitely thought of Kelly after using it.

    I think it’s the combination of the Stronic’s girth and the grainy silicone that just makes it hard to deal with. On the plus side, the thing makes me come very fast, but on the down side, the second I come I’m like “OKAY, GET IT OUT NOW”. I think I’ll just try it with a condom (not ideal, but I enjoy the pulsation enough to make it work).

  • He@Aroused Duo

    I do indeed and I look forward to getting the seduction. In the past couple of years She@ (my wife) and I have gotten into pegging and I’ve been on a Tantus kick for a while….perhaps its time for a change of pace

  • Skade

    I’m glad that I’m not the only one with that opinion of Fun Factory silicone xD

  • Heaven

    I think these are so neat I would like to get one some day. I am glad someone took your advice and got it and enjoyed it just as much.

  • Some Girl

    Lol – I have totally bought the Eroscillator, Pure Wand and Luna Beads completely based on your reviews! You’re going to bankrupt me soon! And I actually like that the Pure Wand is cold even in room temperature! My Sir put it in the freezer once…brrr!

  • Deborah Zarett

    Checked out the Stronic Eins and Comet G Wand at a couple of stores today (actually, i was applying for non-existent job openings, but decided to investigate those while there). Want. Broke. ๐Ÿ™

  • Deborah Zarett

    I would totally trade you if that was possible.

  • Deborah Zarett

    You got the Stronic Eins at a discount??

  • Deborah Zarett

    I like Fun Factory’s silicone; some of their bigger toys just require a little lube based on your individual anatomy and how wet you get naturally.

  • Skade

    Personally I found everything wrong with their silicone when I brought my first and only toy from them, one of their small dildos ๐Ÿ˜›

    But yeah, lube helps wonders with problem toys xD

  • Deborah Zarett

    I have one of their older toys that’s shaped like a dolphin, in cobalt blue, and never had any problems with it, but I never start from scratch, so to speak, so I generally don’t need lube, just adequate “warm-up” time- the only toy I found impossible to use was a weirdly-textured supposed g-spot vibe, covered with those pointy bumps- the only possible use for it would have been for grooming cats…….the only complaint I have about FF silicone is that it’s so matte it starts attracting dust as soon as you clean it!!!

  • Sharn

    I thoroughly enjoy the look of the NobEssence. But then I remember that it’s made of wood and I can get pretty bloody rough, and I worry that I may break it down the line. This disturbs me greatly. (Vagina splinters, can you even *imagine*)
    And that is why I feel I must save for the Pure Wand. I’d have a challenge on my hands breaking stainless steel.

  • Unless you are a monster, I really don’t see you breaking a NobEssence toy. I have tried to break one in half before, to absolutely no avail. NobEssence would not be the big name it is if their toys broke. Think about a wooden salad bowl โ€” that’s what NobEssence toys are like. They are sturdy and non-porous. They are wonderful!

  • DrAli

    Hi for all girls n boys to get ur soulmate for tonight call me :- +923026910007. I m a virgin girls n boys provider & love to help u in bed

  • j.s.

    is nobessence still in business? i tried emailing them a couple times last week but no response. i used both of the email addresses on their site…

  • nuala macmoragh

    I also can’t imagine that you’d break a NobEssence toy in use–you’d break your vagina or ass first. I am extra cautious when I go to do my “dildo laundry’ to avoid knocking the wood toys against the glass and metal toys or the sink, so they don’t get cracked or dinged. I also store my toys in labeled Viewtainer tubes and clear pencil boxes to keep them organized, free of cat fur, and to avoid damaging them. But yes, get a Pure Wand, it’s still my favorite, over the Seduction, largely because of the weight, the coldness, and the somewhat electric feel of the steel.

  • Yes, they absolutely are.

  • Skade

    I didn’t start from scratch either but it was almost as textured as sandpaper and wouldn’t bend an inch ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Deborah Zarett

    My butt is highly resistant to toys….

  • Deborah Zarett

    No idea why, but somehow i’ve never had any issues with FF’s silicone….

  • Skade

    Ha ha lucky you <3

  • Deborah Zarett

    Can’t explain it…..

  • Skade

    You coul have gotten a bit different batch of FF, or maybe your just a bit more texture resistant then the bit of us ;D
    Nobody is completely alike after all ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Deborah Zarett

    Yeah, the only issue i have with FF silicone is its amazing ability to attract lint and cat hair, necessitating careful cleaning and storage…

  • Skade

    Yep haven’t meet a silicone toy that haven’t had that unfortunate ability yet ๐Ÿ˜›
    It’s insane how quickly they pick up lint and hair xD

  • Deborah Zarett

    They double as lint rollers.

  • katje

    I wish that they had this in a yet larger size… I’ve been trying to find something like this in wood, stainless, or glass and not having a lot of joy.

  • There’s the Fucking Sculptures G-Spoon in large.

  • sayitwithsarcophilus

    I bought the Tantus Echo, Tantus Ripple, and Lovelife Cuddle based on your recommendation. I would love to try the Seduction someday but there is no way my vagina’s ready for something like that at this point.
