Probe by Nob essence

Let's Linger.

NobEssence creates beautiful wooden sculptures that are equally a delight when they're filling your body as when they're filling your eyes. Linger (the Ergonomic One Finger) stands apart from others in the line by excelling in dynamics---the expansion and contractions of your muscles over the beads, at your choice of pace, makes a wonderful vaginal or anal treat. The slight curve and the finger loop let Linger conform to your body perfectly.
Gorgeous, responsibly harvested, hand-carved, splinter-proof wood; wonderful thrusting beaded probe.
Tip bead is too pointy for pure g-spot stim, but it's for thrusting, so I can't complain.
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
The Ergonomic One Finger, or Linger, is a beaded probe with a convenient finger loop. Its shape encourages you to explore your body deeply and easily, thrusting slowly or quickly to let your muscles envelop each of the gradually-girthier beads in turn. While other NobEssence toys focus on applying firm pressure to your erogenous zones, Linger specializes in exhilarating motion. Whether it's used as an anal or vaginal toy, your muscles will find delight in the Linger's undulating form.

Yes, Linger is made of wood. Beautiful, exotic, responsibly harvested (check NobEssence's site for details!) hard wood. Wenge, to be specific, in the case of my Linger, but you will get a randomly selected wood when you make your order from EF. So far I've received one sculpture in padauk, one in bamboo, one in teak, and one in wenge, and only the bamboo is sculpted from a lamina rather than a solid chunk of wood. All of my NobEssence sculptures are made with excellent craftsmanship, they're all sanded to a silky smoothness, and there are no flaws anywhere to be found.

Yes, Linger is made of wood---but no, you will not get a splinter. NobEssence coats their wooden sculptures with a patented clear coating they call Lubrosity. Lubrosity is hypoallergenic and body-safe, bleachable for deep cleaning, and most importantly, it is completely waterproof. Because water can never penetrate the coating to get the wood wet, your sculpture will never expand and contract, so the wood will never deteriorate and splinters will never develop. The only downside to this, in my opinion, is that the Lubrosity coating seals the rich hardwood smell in at the same time as it's sealing water out, so instead of smelling like wood, NobEssence pieces are totally odorless. But odorlessness is well worth it to avoid splinters!

Wood is firm and light. I enjoy steel and glass toys as well, but wood has its own special place in my heart---the way you can apply so much leverage while feeling so little weight in your hand is really exciting. Almost as exciting as the beautiful wood grain, knowing that you're filling your body with something uniquely grown, responsibly harvested, masterfully sculpted just for you... there's no way to commune with nature like sticking some Wenge up your ass!

Linger is (I think) designed primarily as an anal toy, but it can be used to great effect vaginally as well. It is composed of five beadlike shapes, and an ergonomic finger hold at the bottom to keep you from taking it too deep, and to help add leverage once it's inside. The brilliance of a beadlike probe for anal use is that your muscles are continually expanding and contracting as each bead passes through, so if you love the sensation of penetration, your entire session can be focused on those exhilarating muscle patterns.

Linger is slightly curved for an ergonomic approach. It is firm enough to provide prostate or g-spot pressure, but its tip bead isn't broad enough to make this my top choice g-spotter. Instead, it shines as a probe. A brilliant thrusting toy that keeps my sphincter or kegels active through the entire session.

The handle is really brilliant as well. As I tried to show in the picture above, your middle finger slips through the hole (the inside diameter is a little over an inch, so all fingers should fit), and the pad of your finger reaches up to the center of the bottom bead. With your finger pad you can rock the whole sculpture once it's inserted, or just use the loop for thrusting in and out without having to move your whole hand, or losing any motion.

All told, Linger has five insertable inches following a straight line (longer if you follow the curve). The beads are slightly ellipsoid, having their longer diameter perpendicular to how you're holding it. The beads slightly increase in size as you thrust it deeper---the first bead has a tapered tip and is 7/8" at the longest diameter. The second bead's largest diameter is 1", the third's is 1+1/16", the fourth is 1+1/8", and the final bead is 1+1/4" across. Because the first bead is just a bit larger than a finger, and because of the gradual stepping up in size and the small final size of the beads, Linger would be an excellent choice as a first anal toy after fingers. Beginners and the experienced will both revel in Linger's excellent quality.
Like all NobEssence toys, Linger comes in a stylish and sturdy box with a felt lining and stretchy bands to hold it in place. After washing my sculpture with soap and water or a 10% bleach solution, I store it in its lovely box. Linger came with a single-use packet of water-based Sliquid Organics lube, but its Lubrosity finish is also compatible with silicone or oil-based lubes.

I'm kind of a NobEssence fangirl. I've never found a company that has such a brilliant understanding of the form and the function of the human body, such a masterful hand at creating their products, and such a divine inspiration of how their creations will fit within the human body. I have the Smooth S Shape, aka Seduction (I haven't done a written review of it, but I have a video review at the link), the P-Spot Flogger, aka Incite, and the Romp. While Seduction and Incite are both designed specifically for g-spot and prostate pressure (the Seduction with rocking in mind, and the Incite with leveraged pressure), and Romp is designed as a dual-stimulation plug which features light pressure on pleasure centers---Linger stands out among its siblings. Linger's strength, to me, is in the dynamic realm. Linger seems to be conceived, designed, and crafted to be slowly and enticingly slid inside the tight grasp of your muscles, and then thrust as rapidly as your body can handle. In its motions are its key. If you enjoy thrusting toys, or beaded probes, and the beauty of wood calls to you---you will not be disappointed with Linger.
