Not earth-shattering, but fun anyway

The 7 Function Venus Butterfly is a good strap-on vibrator, with several patterns of vibration, and a remote control that actually has an off button. It's a little on the weak side, but it's fun to use and sure to please.

The 7-Function Venus Butterfly has been a great little addition to my toy chest. It's a fun, remote control strap-on vibrator from California Exotic. It's basically a bullet vibrator covered in soft, stretchy TPR shaped like a butterfly with a little nub at the nose and tail for extra stimulation.

It has three adjustable, removable, straps to hold it in place; a waist strap and two thigh straps. The nice thing about it is the push button power pack/remote control. It is attached to about a two foot cord and has two buttons: one to cycle through the vibrations, and one to turn it off. The off button is a wonderful feature if there's a chance you'll need to turn it off in a hurry.

The first thing I did when I got my Venus Butterfly, was find three AA batteries to put in the battery pack and turn it on. I liked the feel of the TPR, and the fact that it didn't have any kind of smell; rubbery or otherwise. But I wasn't too impressed with the vibration.

Even the strongest of the seven vibration patterns wouldn't be enough to get me off. However I do need some intense vibration to reach orgasm, so this may not be a problem for some people, and it could even be a plus because it makes it a pretty quiet vibrator. The patterns are interesting enough, anyway, and it is still a fun toy.

The patterns are: 1. Light vibration 2. Medium vibration 3. Strongest vibration 4. Pulse, pulse, vibration 5. Rapid pulsation 6. Pulsation 7. Escalation

Even though this toy could never get me off, it is a lot of fun to use. Letting my husband control the vibration is exciting for both of us. He loves feeling like he's in complete control of my pleasure, and I like being able to just wear it against me, without having to work very hard.

The only problem I've had with the Venus Butterfly, aside from the weak vibrations, is that I can't easily wear it during sex. No matter what position we're in it, gets in the way and, just doesn't work out. I like wearing it during sex so I wouldn't have to fumble with a bulky vibrator, was my main reason for wanting this toy, but oh well. It's still a good toy to use any other time.

This toy is somewhat porous, so I wouldn't recommend sharing. To clean it just use toy cleaner on the butterfly part, or use antibacterial soap, but be careful. It is attached to a cord and one can only imagine what would happen if it gets all wet. Well, actually, it's pretty easy to imagine. It would probably just stop working. So like I said, be careful when cleaning it.

I really enjoy using this toy, as does my husband. It doesn't have the most intense vibration, but it has interesting enough patterns to make it fun anyway. It's nice to have someone else in control while you just wear it, sit back, and enjoy. It would be better if it were a less porous material and easier to clean, but it's worth using.
Follow-up commentary
After my initial review of this toy, I didn't get much use out of it before one of the loops of the butterfly broke, rendering that particular strap useless. The loops are just too thin and flimsy. I didn't feel like trying to fix the loop or reattach the strap some other way because I could tell the others would have broken soon after anyway. I have other toys that are better, stronger, and easier to use, so it just isn't worth the effort to fix.

    Did you have any trouble with the straps? I've had a difficult time figuring them out on other strap-ons like this.

    Good review!

    I did have some trouble the first time. I didn't realize there were thigh straps and a waist strap. I thought it was just thigh straps. That led to quite a bit of goofy looking confusion.

    How are the loops in the butterfly holding up? That's often the first part to break on these strap-on vibrators, but those look thicker than most.

    @Shellz- This is a really late response, but no, I haven't tried any others. I kind of gave up after this one. Haha.

    Thanks for the review. Since the strap broke was it worth keeping around even though it was no longer hands free?
