The S-shaped NobEssence Seduction looks more like a beautiful decorative sculpture than a dildo. Made of Purpleheart wood and sealed with NobEssence’s signature Lubrosity coating, it is elegance incarnate. But not just aesthetically; I quickly realized that it also felt elegant while in use. As in, IN MY VAG.

Um. See. The Seduction is incredibly lovely and classy and everything, but… I also have bursts of vulgarity over it. I can’t help it. It does feel elegant, but it also feels curse-word-droppingly good.

As expected from NobEssence, the wood is gorgeous and unique. Every swirl and detail can be seen, and my Purpleheart is dotted with a lovely natural grain. But despite these good looks, the Seduction is all business. There is not one inch of its 9″ length that cannot or will not be put inside of you.

I hesitate to call the Seduction a double-ended dildo for fear of lumping it anywhere near those $10 jelly atrocities, but each end of this dildo is truly amazing in its own way. The small end with the 1″ in diameter sphere makes for intense G-spot stimulation, while the large 1 7/8″ end makes for intense everything. When I was finally able to work my way up to it, the large end blew my mind. It feels deliciously thick, while also hitting my G-spot with a freakish intensity.

That was a surprise. I thought I’d love the bulbed end more. Instead I find myself using the large end most of the time to achieve that glorious full feeling and unmistakable G-spot stimulation. Slowly rocking it back and forth to savor the sensation. Rocking it faster and faster, until I squirt.

And despite the chunkiness of the large end, the Seduction never gets heavy or unwieldy. There are two reasons for this. First, the shape is incredibly ergonomic. Each end functions as a handle while the other end is in use. Second, wood is very lightweight — it is lighter than glass, stainless steel, and even silicone. Because of this, the Seduction is a really fabulous toy for longer play sessions, and especially for G-spot stimulation, which can entail a lot of thrusting.

With a toy this perfect, there’s not much more to say. The Seduction is gorgeous both aesthetically and vaginally, from end to end. It is two wonderful dildos melded into one, making for a dildo that I use at least 2x longer than usual, and love about 10x more.

Get the Seduction at NobEssence’s site (where you’ll find the most wood choices)

    It looks beautiful. I think I’m going to have to start investing in better toys. I’ve been enjoying reading your reviews on the things you try. It is so nice to hear exactly what you think.

    @Brandy W: That’s the thing about more expensive toys… they may be more expensive, but they will really last a lifetime. In the end, it’s worth it.

    I love it when classy toys make me curse like a sailor. It feels so “Uptown Girl.”

    @Backseat Boohoo: LOL. Just LOL.

    I LOVE NobEssence products. They hit my G(reen)spot perfectly. If only they’d release the secret formula for Lubrosity my life would be complete.

    Epiphora,

    I know how much you love the Romp, so I was just wondering how you would rate this toy compared to it? I am debating which one to get. I wish I could just buy Seduction, Romp, and Tryst all at once . . . maybe even Linger. *Sigh.*

    Love your reviews!

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @Tracy: If forced to choose between the two, I would choose the Seduction. I use it more often, and it is truly amazing. The Romp is amazing, too, but I don’t use anal toys a ton, so it really depends on what kind of toy you want.

    I’ve been eyeing NobEssence toys for so very long… some day I hope!

    I love my Seduction, too! True — what else is there to say other than it is pure perfection? And so gorgeous . . .

  • Trix

    I usually like a material with some give (like silicone) internally, but it just looks so lovely! Do you think I would mind the wood (at least the smaller end)?

  • http://heyepiphora.com Epiphora

    @Trix: I’m biased because I love harder materials, but they can be so stimulating that you will probably forget the material is not pliable.

  • Crystalline

    I love wood dildos; my first was wood, and unfortunately, I haven’t had one since. Looking at this, though, my hand might unclench enough to let money go from it. XD

    Beautiful, and omg wood?? Plus awesome G-spot stimulation… I want this!

  • Nuala MacMoragh

    This is my first wood toy, and I’ve only had it a few hours, but if it’s possible to be in love with a sex toy, I am. I have some really nice toys, but this one is going to be my new favorite, I can tell.

    This is probably dependent on your individual anatomy, but for me, I’m able to grind my clit against the curved shaft of the Seduction while rocking the knobby end against my g-spot. It’s so ergonomic, although lightweight for its size–it’s still got considerable heft to it. It’s also hard like steel or plastic, but warm unlike steel or silicone.
    I got mine from SheVibe (and they are awesome to buy from) in Padauk, and it’s gorgeous. I was and still am intimidated by the large end–so much so that I actually measured it, concerned that maybe I got one that was an extra enormous one-off. No, it was under 1 7/8. This is a lot of girth, at least for me. Pushing it in, once I’m turned on and gently rubbing my clit with even a finger results in an intense orgasm, almost as soon as it pops inside. I’ll be curious to see if I am able to work it in deeper but as it is, it’s absolutely amazing. Thanks for your review. Now I’m curious about the Tryst.

    I’m very excited to hear that this beauty is so lightweight! I’m a chronic pain/bad joints/crap stamina person, so I worry about investing in awesome-but-heavy (Hello, Pure Wand!) toys, for fear that I just won’t be able to use them. NobEssence seems like it might end up being my dream company.
