Wish it Would FlyThe idea of this toy is absolutely exiting, and it looks great. However, the vibrations got lost through the material, and the finicky remote control can make it too much of an annoyance to use.
You could also use it during sex; it doesn't get in the way, and could be used to add that extra little bit of excitement and pleasure to the act. And if you want to change things up, or don't want to deal with the straps, you can always just take the bullet out of the plastic pocket and use it as you would any other bullet.
And speaking of the wings, I purchased a similar item a few years ago for a previous partner. On that product, the wings were entirely too big and hurt her by pressing up against her legs. The Venus Butterfly however, has fairly small wings - and didn't dig into my partner's skin or hurt her at all. However, the straps did.
Though the straps stretch really well and fit a large amount of sizes, the buttons at the ends can be a tad too loose. We had to be careful when putting this toy on, because the string would sometimes snap back.
The remote is very simple, one button for on and off, the other for the seven functions on it. The distance it works at is really a hit and miss thing though. In fact, it was our experience that it would only work if you really pressed down on the buttons within ten feet of the bullet, and pointed it at the bullet, and even then it would only work 20% of the time. In general... too finicky to use!
Another bad thing is that it drained batteries fast, even when we were not using it. I noticed this when it stopped working the second day, so I stopped leaving the batteries inside of the bullet. Though, maybe that was just a hint towards the toy being broken - something that lead to us being unable to test if it truly performed within water or even outside of it. Luckily, it comes packed with two charges worth of batteries. So that's certainly a pro!
Whilst the material is certainly pliable, and removing the bullet and cleaning the two parts separately is no issue, it is hard to put the bullet back in if any part of it is still moist, as it'll 'stick' to the plastic. So I had to ensure that I dried it off properly.
