It's been a little while since I posted a toy review, but I've been enjoying this particular toy on my own. Maybe I didn't want to share how much I liked it? Who knows! But it's so perfect for this springtime weather with its little pink butterfly, so it seemed like a good time. After Sex and the City's discussion of the rabbit style vibe, similar toys have been popping up all over the place, of variable quality!
This is the Royal Butterfly, sent to me by MyPleasure a few months ago. It's a dual action vibrator with five bands of crystal beads in the shaft that rotate (in both directions!) and a butterfly shaped vibe for your clit. It's about 10.5" from tip to top, with 6.5" insertable and about 1.5" in diameter- not too big, but not unnoticable either.
As for the controls, there's two sets, one for the butterfly and one for the shaft. Each one has three settings to give you some variability in sensation. I found the beads in the shaft to be perfectly positioned to feel really lovely inside my cunt.
The butterfly, meanwhile, was a little too buzzy- I prefer a stronger vibration typically- but I did like that the butterfly was large, allowing my labia to be stimulated as well. And even cooler- the butterfly is adjustable, so you can sculpt the shape to fit right where you like it, a good feature and potentially useful for people with disabilities so they can adapt the toy to work!
The size is really what sold this for me- I'm new to the dual-vibration toys, but the ones I've had tend to be either too thick or too thin. The 1.5" diameter was just right to feel full without feeling overwhelmed, or like there was too much sensation going on. Plus it was easy to insert and use, not being too overly long.
I think this would make a fabulous initial toy for someone curious about dual-use vibrators. The vibration is fairly strong (though not as strong as a hitachi) and about middling when it comes to noise. You'd probably hear it in the same room, but not in another room with the door closed, if you know what I mean.
It's made with a pink Phthalate-free TPE, so you can't boil this to sterilize (you likely wouldn't anyway, due to the vibrator pack!) so instead you'll want to wipe it down with toy cleaner or hot water and soap. It's waterproof but I wouldn't necessarily submerge it in water just in case! It takes 3 AA batteries and is easy to load up.
All in all, the Royal Butterfly is a good all-around first rabbit-style vibrator, particularly for people who have wrist issues and might benefit extra from the adjustable butterfly. And it's currently half off at MyPleasure, making it an even better buy! If you're in the market for a toy that'll penetrate and vibrate at the same time, without breaking the bank, the Royal Butterfly is the toy for your needs. Thanks MyPleasure for sending me one in exchange for a review!
