Use

The Micro Wireless Venus Butterfly is a strap-on vibrator designed for hands-free clitoral stimulation. The straps are soft, stretchy, and adjustable, so it will fit most women. It can be used for solo play or with a partner.

The three straps which are attached to the butterfly can be adjusted so that the butterfly rests lower, covering the entire vagina, or it can be positioned higher so that the nub on the end of the butterfly rests on the clitoris. When positioned higher up, the butterfly does not get in the way of intercourse or toys. During intercourse, it provides the clitoral stimulation some women need to reach orgasm while being completely hands-free. This allows for positions to be changed with ease and no more worrying about whether you can get your hand down there. It works wonderfully in missionary position.

The butterfly can also be worn under clothing very comfortably. It can be used while cleaning the house, doing homework, or just about any other time. The light buzzing noise it makes under clothing can be audible when there is no background noise, so it wouldn't be suitable to use in the company of anyone you don't want knowing what you've got going on.

Material / Texture

The butterfly piece, itself, is made of flexible jelly-like TPR. TPR has a safety rating of 7. It is a porous material and can be used with water-based and silicone lubes. The inner bullet is made of plastic and is waterproof.

The butterfly has a ridged texture on the underside, but the ridges do not seem to provide much extra stimulation. The nubs at the top and bottom of the butterfly are smooth, but due to the nature of the material, have a good amount of grip to them. The tackiness of the entire butterfly allows it to stay in place and it does not slip much, as long as you have the straps adjusted correctly.

The straps are made of stretchy, thin elastic bands. Each strap has a small plastic hook, which can be comparable to a removable bra strap hook, or those found on swimsuits.

Design / Shape / Size

This butterfly vibe is about the size of a palm. It measures 3 1/4" in length, so it can provide stimulation over the entire outer vaginal areal, including the clitoris. It has antennae at the top, which provide a tickling sensation, but with the normal placements of this vibe the antennae do not normally make any contact. There is a nub at the top and bottom of the body of the butterfly. These nubs can provide direct stimulation of the clitoris. The wings are soft and flexible, and the straps give them some tension so that they rest upon the labia. When worn correctly, the button for the bullet ends up at the bottom of the butterfly, not the top.

The elastic straps and hooks are not made of the most durable material, but should hold up to use fairly well. While not the highest quality, they are comfortable. To wear, locate the longest strap, wrap around the waist, and place the hook through the loop at the end of the other strap on the topside of the butterfly. The shorter straps go around the thighs in the same manner. The straps can be adjusted by moving the plastic slider, similar to those on bra straps. There are snaps on each strap for easy removal. You can remove the straps and switch them so that the butterfly is facing the opposite way.

Anyone who enjoys hands free stimulation can enjoy this butterfly regardless of their experience level. The design is non-intimidating and somewhat discreet. It can easily be tucked away in a purse for a bit of on-the-go fun.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The bullet that is in the butterfly is a bit tricky to remove due to the tackiness of the TPR. To remove the bullet, locate the hole on the bottom of the backside of the butterfly. Push back the TPR and you have access to the bullet. The bullet does not need to be completely removed. Unscrew the bottom part of the bullet, insert the battery with the arrow side pointing down. Screw the bullet back together and stretch the TPR back over it. Two sets of watch batteries are included, although only one set is needed at a time. Each set is three batteries which come wrapped together. You do not need to unwrap them, just pop them right in.

The bullet is very basic and has three speeds which can be cycled through with a button at the base. There are low, medium, and high speeds. After high speed, another press will turn the bullet off. The vibrations are a bit buzzy but can be stimulating. You can remove the bullet and replace it with another if desired.

This toy is completely waterproof and can be used in the shower, or bath. The only issue with this would be that the straps may need time to dry, but they can be dried out easily.

The noise level of this toy is fairly low and is comparable to other small wireless bullets. It can't be heard easily under covers and is only slightly audible under clothing.

Care and Maintenance

This butterfly strap-on vibe is very easy to care for. It can be washed with antibacterial soap and water. Regular washing is suggested, as TPR has been known to pick up lint and dust pretty often. The straps can be removed and washed separately in a washing machine or by hand, but putting them in the dryer isn't recommended because it might damage the elastic.

TPR and plastic are compatible with silicone and water-based lubes.

For storage, place this in an area where there isn't any excess lint or dust, and where it will be kept free from bacteria. A plastic bag or the packaging work well to keep the straps from tangling on themselves or with anything else, and will eliminate having to wash the lint off before each use.

Experience

I had always wondered about these types of butterfly vibes because I need clitoral stimulation during intercourse to reach orgasm and in certain positions it can be hard to get your hand down there. I think that this is a great concept. It works fairly well as a hands-free vibrator, but I prefer vibrations to be a bit stronger and direct. I may try changing out the bullet to one with a cord, or to a more powerful wireless one.

The straps can be hard to figure out at first, and the hooks aren't as well made as I was hoping. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to unhook them from the strap because the material is stretchy, but this keeps them from coming undone during use.

I also didn't like that the button to control the bullet ended up on the bottom side of the butterfly when it was put on correctly. It would be a lot more convenient if it was at the top. I was also a bit nervous when I stretched it around my waist and the wings stretched a lot. I'm a size 0. I am just hoping these don't rip at some point.
Follow-up commentary
This butterfly really doesn't do as much for me as I thought it would. In fact, it gets in the way for me and the vibrations don't travel through it as I wanted. Even though the bullet is a little stronger than others, when removed and used alone, it still doesn't do anything for me. Poor butterfly, I had high hopes.

    Fantastic review! One question though... how does this look under clothes? Would you say it's fairly easy to cover up with something like jeans, or would it require a flowy skirt or dress to make it less obvious or prevent you from looking like you're hiding a penis?
