Review - Penetralia Number 66

Number 66 Sculpted Wood Dildo by Penetralia

Reviewed by Epiphora of Hey Epiphora

Aside from a handful of

super indie manufacturers

and some

really sad bigwig attempts

, wooden sex toys have primarily been the domain of

NobEssence

for quite some time now. But there’s a new brand on the block, currently

carried exclusively at SheVibe

, and it’s called

Penetralia

. Usually new sex toy manufacturers make me yawn, but not this one. I love wooden toys and I will put them ALL INSIDE OF ME. With wood, I am shameless.

Which reminds me - I love the name

Penetralia

. It sounds chic, but it’s also in-your-face (or as my friend

put it

, “it is crass and fancy”). Like, make no mistake, these toys are going to PENETRATE YOU. But… elegantly.

Fully expecting the

Penetralia Number 66

to come haphazardly wrapped in bubble wrap or tissue paper, I was blown away to see that actual thought was put into the packaging. It comes in a wooden tube that ties shut with a piece of leather. Stickers spelling

66

are on the end, looking only slightly demonic. Info about the toy is on a sheet of paper inside.

My

Number 66

is made of Cocobolo, as if it didn’t already remind me of the

NobEssence Romp

enough (I’m not gonna put it in my butt, though - too big). Mine’s 6.5″ long and just barely 1.6″ in diameter at its widest, but these are handmade toys and each one will differ slightly.

Out of the tube, this toy doesn’t look as polished as a NobEssence piece. The edges, while soft, are not as fluid — the angles are a bit more amateur, like they weren’t sanded to death — and the coating isn’t as shiny or thick. Penetralia toys are coated with “a minimum of 3 layers of SmartCA,” but I can feel the grain on this dildo more than on my NobEssence toys.

But none of those small imperfections really come into play, because the

Number 66

feels amazing in

my vagina

. I usually insert it in the opposite way as my photo shows - so that it curves up against my G-spot at the tip. But if I’m really riled, I can insert it the other way - so the bump hits me nearer to the entrance of

my vagina

- and it’s even more intense. Either way, it’s a really awesome G-spotter. It’s frictionless but stiff enough to make its presence known, and short enough that it never even touches my cervix.
