Not My Favorite

I had high hopes for this toy. It looked like all of the functions of it would come together, and really get me off. This toy was much too confusing to me, a first time pump user, and I had no instructions to help me out. This toy just got me frustrated. The multi-speed vibration function is nice though. Who knows, maybe if I was able to figure this toy out, it might have been one of my favorites. But because of how confusing it was, this was probably my least favorite toy so far.
This toy gives off multiple sensations. The vibrations are nice and strong.
This toy can be a tad confusing. No instructions are included. The material isn't the safest.

extremely useful review


This toy stimulates the clitoral area. You place the 'butterfly' tentacles over your clit, and turn on the vibration knob to a speed of your choice. The tentacles start wiggling. The pump is to make the butterfly release the suction it has on your clit. I think this toy might be good for those who get off on clitoral stimulation and want something different than just vibration. The best occasion to use this toy would be when you are by yourself. If you hand it to a partner, they might be a little intimidated by it's 'sweet' design, or they might be intimidated as to the fact of how to even begin to use it. It's not really couple friendly. It can be a great toy to use alone thought.

Material / Texture

The texture was nice - it was a jelly texture and was hard enough to be easily held, but the handle pump was made out of plastic. I did not find that the texture added more stimulation, to tell you the truth, I didn't even think about the texture until I started writing this. The material is made out of jelly so it's soft but I know the material rating is at a very meager '2', so it's not the safest, healthiest choice of a toy you can make. I wasn't able to find much definitive research on the use of jelly on sex toys, so I am just going to stick to the material safety rating.

Design / Shape / Size

The design is OK. When it first arrived, I was very confused as to how to use it. When I first received it, I opened up the box and it looked nice and neatly packaged in it's box. The only problem is, the box comes with absolutely no instructions as to how you are supposed to operate it. There are no instructions on the side or the back of the box either, and none of the pictures on the box give any indication as to how you are supposed to use, or even hold it.

For first time pump users, you know what I mean when I say it takes some practice in order to get the hang of it. The size was decent. It is not a toy I would tell you to take in your purse, as it's not discreet whatsoever, and it's larger than something like a bullet that you could alternatively carry around.

Functions / Performance / Controls

To turn on the vibrations, you turn a know located on the bottom of the 'butterfly' and you can choose your vibration setting. There are lots of different vibration speeds, and the vibration control is pretty conveniently located; meaning that no other parts of the toy get in the way when you are in the 'heat of the moment', and are trying to turn the vibrations up.

This toy was really confusing to me at first, especially without instructions. I tried using it several times and just gave up because I got so frustrated. It is supposed to 'suck' and stay on, but I never managed to get it to do this. The toy is fairly noisy, nothing compared to a jackhammer, but if your walls are thin enough, someone in the next room might be able to hear you using it.

Care and Maintenance

This toy is fairly easy to care for... I just wiped it off with a wet cloth, then dried it off with a dry cloth. It's a little more difficult than just a normal dildo or vibrator, as it has many crevices that you need to get into, and it takes an extra few minutes. At first, I began storing the toy in its original packaging, but then I just moved it to a little sex toy chest that I keep and that was much easier. It does not take up too much room.
Follow-up commentary
My follow up review is short and sweet: I disliked this toy so much compared to others that I have in similar cost and style, that I actually threw it away.
