Vibrates Like a Butterfly, Buzzes Like a BeeThe Posh Butterfly Lover would be good as a beginner, strap-on butterfly, for someone who likes indirect, medium-strength vibrations, and doesn't mind a lot of noise coming from their pelvic area. I personally like more targeted vibrations, but my husband and I still found this toy nice to use during foreplay to tickle those sensitive areas a little bit.
Lots of vibe functions
Vibrations aren't very targeted
The cord for the controller box is 28-1/2 inches long. I found it to be a little shorter than would be ideal, but still workable.
The toy is very loud! Distractingly loud. It doesn't get any quieter with pressure or when it is in place with the straps. All of the speeds and functions are loud. Loud! Loud! It might be a butterfly, but it buzzes like a swarm of angry bees. It would definitely be heard through a closed door. It might even be heard by a neighbor inside their house if you were to wear it while mowing your lawn...
The vibrating butterfly can be used during foreplay as a handheld stimulator, during solo sessions with or without a dildo/insertable vibrator, or during intercourse. None of the toy is able to be inserted vaginally or anally. Due to the loud noise it makes, it wouldn't be appropriate for use as a discreet vibe in public.
There is a slight chemical/plastic odor when the toy is first taken out of the box, and it still smells about the same after a couple of weeks. It's not strong or too unpleasant, although I'm not really sensitive to smells unless they're really strong.
The butterfly is somewhat of a lint magnet.
The silicone is medium-soft in texture, with just a little drag, and thick around the bullet area, so there is some "give" when you squeeze it.
There are no protrusions on the butterfly - the body and head are mostly smooth, and even though I was using my hand to hold it, I found it very difficult to get any targeted vibes to my clit area at all. I would recommend this toy for someone who likes diffuse vibrations over the whole vulva area rather than targeted clit vibrations.
The toy has 10 functions:
1. Strongest steady vibrations
2. Medium-strength steady vibrations
3. Weakest steady vibrations
4. Escalating bursts
5. Low slow bursts
6. Stronger, faster bursts
7. Fastest bursts
8. Medium long pulses
9. Stronger long pulses
10. Softer deep pulses
The vibrations are buzzy, medium in strength, and a little above average in my experience for toys of this type. You do feel them but they aren't the "Incredibly Intense Power" that is advertised on the box. I need medium-intensity vibrations and this toy doesn't do it for me, but it would probably be adequate if I could target the vibes more to my clit area. It does feel nice for foreplay.
