I’ve never shied away from trying new things. If they make sex toys for women, it’s a waste not to try them out, don’t you think? Like most of us, I wasn’t always open to it, but then my ex-boyfriend introduced me to the world of sex toys by getting me a wireless remote control vibrating panties. At the time, they rocked my world, although now I think there are plenty of other vibrators for women that do a better job.
As I got more and more into sex toys (especially wearable vibrators), I decided to try out various different ones and see how they perform. Now, the time has come to write this butterfly vibrator review. Let’s check out how and why they’re different from other clitoral vibrators. Before we get into how this butterfly-shaped clit stimulator works, I’ll give you a bit of a background on my experience.
How I Found Out About Butterfly Vibrators
The first time I heard about a butterfly vibrator wasn’t from doing any research on toys. I had already had a handful of toys that provided strong vibration modes to my nether regions. As a matter of fact, my knowledge of it came from an unexpected source.
A dear friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, recommended it to me. Shocking, I know! But the thing is, this is a friend I’ve been dying to introduce to sex toys. She’s one of those women who simply won’t even entertain the possibility of having some fun with something small like a bullet vibrator. Time and time again, I tried to sneakily get her to try something out, but she would always refuse.
And then, out of the blue, she asked me if I knew about “the butterfly dildo.” My answer was negative, and she told me I should definitely try one. At first, I mocked her, asking her if she confused it with a butterfly kiss — something more like her. However, I realized she talked about a vibrator — vibrating on your clit!
I decided to give it a shot instantly, and I was certain of one of two things — it was either going to suck horribly, or it was going to change my world…
What Sex Toys I Owned Before Buying a Butterfly Vibrator
As I’ve already said, I like to experiment with different toys. I don’t want to brag about it, but over the years, I’ve gathered quite a collection. As you could see, my first “toy” were vibrating panties, but I soon ditched them when I moved on to better things. Basically, as long as it’s a body-safe toy, and it doesn’t belong to a fetish/fantasy I’m not into, I will be interested. Although I have to say, I haven’t tried out that many butt-related toys. Apart from a plug here and there, I’m not the one to enjoy some backward fun that much. Everyone’s got their thing, don’t they?
As most of us, I started my journey with basic dildos, which I had to manually move back and forth to get some action. After that, I tried several G-spot stimulators, and my favorite one is the Lovehoney Power Play 7 Function G-Spot Vibrator. They provide great internal stimulation and are amazing to use during foreplay.
However, at some point, I realized my clitoris isn’t getting any love. And the whole point of a clitoris is for us ladies to get pleasure, right? I needed to get something that would focus a bit more on the clit. Simply, there’s no denying that vibration against the clitoris feels great, and there was no reason for me not to do it. I went on to buy a rabbit vibrator with dual motors that stimulate both the clitoris and the G-spot. I was extremely happy with it, but then, a friend came and unexpectedly brought up a butterfly dildo.
How a Butterfly Vibrator Works and How It Is Different
Have you heard of the venus butterfly technique? It’s a technique that incorporates fingering and cunnilingus. Basically, while your partner is down there licking your clitoris, he simultaneously uses a finger to stimulate you internally. Now, if I told you that my first vibrator of this kind goes by the name of Venus Butterfly Vibrator, what do you think it does?
Exactly — it provides clitoral stimulation while also giving you some further action a bit more south. But how is that different from, say, a rabbit vibrator? Well, the point is in its design. While a rabbit vibrator does do a job on the clit, it’s not its focus. The butterfly is specifically designed to make your clit stimulated to the maximum. It covers your vulva wholly while focusing its vibrations on the clit. Additionally, it comes with straps, so you can just place it down there and use it hands-free as opposed to a rabbit vibrator, which you have to move around.
As always, it comes with various vibrational patterns and speed options, which you can change remotely. Basically, unlike other stimulators, it’s a toy that fully focuses on your clitoris. In my experience, it does that job impeccably. On top of that, the butterfly wings stimulate your labia, so you get all-round action!
Tips on How to Use Butterfly Vibrators Better
First off, it’s important to mention that you need to use lube, like with every other toy. It’ll help the toy slip in place, and the experience will be far more pleasurable. You can use the butterfly any way you want really, either solo or with your partner.
Since you can change its settings remotely, you can hand over the remote to your partner and let him handle your business. It’s a great way for people who are into BDSM to hand over control to their partner. Even if you’re not into it, you can incorporate the vibrator into your foreplay routine. It will get you going and ready for sex.
Since it’s a hands-free toy, you can wear it around even if you’re not home. You can tie the straps tightly, but you can also let them a bit looser for indirect stimulation. This is not for everyone’s enjoyment, but it might work for you.
Finally, there are waterproof models, so if you like to have one while in the shower, there’s no reason not to do it.
All in all, I’ll be forever grateful to the girlfriend who introduced the butterfly vibrator to me. It’s (currently) my favorite possession by far, and I’m sure you’ll have fun with it as well!
