5 Years, 5 Giveaways – Week 2: Nobessence Seduction or Romp
At first, I loved Nobessence from afar – they’re pricey, and were out of my range. But slowly I got lucky and now own two beauties, the first one
(the Seduction dildo) I acquired in my second year of blogging. From the box to the object, these are fabulous.
For some reason, when people think of “wooden dildos” their mind goes to rough, unfinished wood, prone to splintering1. There aren’t many people making wooden dildos that are trustworthy and awesome; Nobessence is one of very few. They’ve refined their designs, they actually *test* their designs2 and they ensure that their products are safe. Every Nobessence piece is coated in multiple layers of a body-safe sealant called Lubrosity. This prevents the wood from soaking up moisture, and makes it non-porous. They use wood that is sustainably managed & farmed, with a wide range of exotic hardwoods. Each Nobessence piece is made in the US and no two are exactly alike. The wood retains it’s natural fingerprint of whorls, knots and grain patterns. Even though you may see a knot, rest assured that it, like the entire piece, is safely covered in layers of Lubrosity coating to make it smooth and safe.
I’ve tried very hard to strike a balance with these giveaways – I only give away products that I personally can vouch for, that I have tried and genuinely liked. This is why I don’t have many giveaways. Why saddle someone else with a sex toy that might suck or that I know is crap? So despite the fact that I’ve never actually tried the Romp, I’m taking the chance because I know that Nobessence is a wonderful company, I know how they designed it, and I have read many rave reviews from bloggers I trust. So the lucky winner will get to choose either the Seduction OR the Romp. Why the choice? Well, the Seduction could be used anally, if you use the smaller end only but the Romp is meant for the butt. Just because I’m not a butt toy person doesn’t mean that you who are, should suffer.
This week’s giveaway is sponsored by the fabulous folks at SheVibe.com. I adore them as much as I adore the Nobessence people. They’re just seriously genuine people with a passion for great sex toys.
Are you ready for some more non-traditional giveaway entry methods? No social media is involved in this one! I’m really bucking tradition now, eh?

Be sure that the email address you put in the comment form (not visible publicly if it’s in the “email” section) is the same one you’ve signed up under so that I can verify. My email updates are run by Feedburner, and they require that you verify your intent to subscribe. You must continue through with the verification email, or your entire entry will not count.

Eligibility and Choosing the Winner
SheVibe will send the winner, who should reside in the US or Canada, either the Seduction or the Romp – winner’s choice. The color of the wood will be out of your control.
I chose the winner, it’s not random. I’ll first go through all the entries to be sure that you followed the directions, and that you verified your subscription to my email updates. If all of that is in order, then I’ll narrow down the winner by your answer for #1, 2 and 3 – Being convincing helps, but so does providing useful, good feedback to SheVibe!
WINNER!!!!!!! Congrats to Pandra! Her responses for SheVibe’s shopping assistants were really great and helpful, and I really think her husband needs the Romp.
