A great beginner toy

While much about this toy is wonderful and beautifully targeted towards a novice user, who may not know exactly what they are looking for in terms of patterns or settings from a vibrator, this toy's lack of ease of use may be its downfall. With 30 settings and a toy that doesn't remember which one you were on when you turn it off, using the toy is more of an annoyance than a pleasurable experience.

Use

This non-invasive toy is a great to start with in the world of vibrators. It's sweet purple color and innocent looking butterfly exterior will put even the most novice toy user at ease. The toy is specifically designed for g-spot and clitoral dual stimulation. I personally do not enjoy using dual stimulation vibrators with a partner, but you certainly could. It does have a very thick O-ring, making the toy waterproof and I tested it by submerging in a sink with 8-inches of water. The toy still worked afterwards.

Material / Texture

The portion of the toy that comes into contact with your genitals is 100% body safe silicone. This silicone is very smooth with little drag, making it all the more comfortable for beginners. I did not notice a smell to the toy upon arrival, nor did it hold onto the smell of any lubricant that I've used it with. The butterfly has 2 antennae that can be placed around the clit or lowered to stimulate the grater labia areas. The wings have a pattern on them, but they appear to be for aesthetic purpose only.

The base of the toy is made of plastic and is smooth as well.

Design / Shape / Size

The size is very comfortable for me and I am very tight and cannot accommodate much, which causes me to struggle to find toys. This toy was a good fit for me and it'll be perfect for a novice. Size queens, pay attention to the circumference and length to avoid possible disappointment. There is a slight up-bend in the shaft for G-spot stimulation.

The external butterfly is somewhat flexible, but it will try to return to it's resting position if flexed out.

I had to put very little effort able to bend the butterfly to fit my anatomy, and it would certainly be easier to make the external stimulator fit your needs, than adjusting the inside.

Functions / Performance / Controls

**Pros: Designated Power button. There is nothing worse than being walked in on and having to cycle through EVERYTHING to turn the toy off, but not with this vibe - the designated on/off power button has your covered. Additionally, with 30 different speeds or patterns there will be one that you enjoy.

But that's where the good times stop.

Cons: While 30 patterns and speeds are cool in theory, many were very similar and almost all were very very buzzy. I would always prefer a few really great vibes rather than overwhelming number of vibrations. Additionally, the toy doesn't stay on the pattern you love when you turn it off. This means remember how many times your pressed the patterns button for your favourite, because each time you turn the toy on you have to RECYCLE through ALL of the patterns and if you miss it, go through all of them again. Also, even though there are 2 vibrators in the toy, one internally and 1 externally, they are all controlled by the one pattern button, which means that I hope your insides and outsides agree. The toy is battery operated which for me is a con.

I have found I can only stand to use the straight vibrator functions because I lack the patients to deal with the design flaws of this toy. Sometimes this many settings is just too much of a good thing.**

Care and Maintenance

For use: please only use water-based lubricant, not only is it safer for your body, but silicone-based lubricant can break down the material of the toy.

For Cleaning: Because of the O-ring and silicone and hard plastic body, this toy is very easy to care for. Mild soap and warm water is how I choose to clean off my toys, but you can also use the toy wipe or cleaner of your choice.

For storage: Store your toy away from other silicone toys, and without the batteries in them. Soft cloth bags are the best way to store toys however a storage bag does not come with this toy.

A cardboard box with a black background and a picture of the toy on the front and sides. The box is not discrete and should be carefully considered if you are looking at this as a gift.

Personal comments

This toy is not for me, however I am certain that 5 years ago when I was just starting to use vibrators that I would have appreciated at the things I don't like about it now. 5 Years ago I did not know my anatomy and was not comfortable spending the cost of the higher end rechargeable toys, I wasn't sure what type of settings I would enjoy or if I would enjoy dual stimulation, and the more phallic looking toys scared me. If that is where you are in your toy experience I do believe that you would be happy with this toy, but for me personally at a more advanced level of toys this one does not suit my needs at this time, but that isn't to say that it couldn't be wonderful for someone.
