Butterfly vibrators are sex toys designed specifically for the stimulation of the clitoris. The idea was first invented by Joani Blank, a sex enthusiast and avid author. The toy, in its essence, resembles a butterfly. The body section arouses and pleasures the clitoris, and the wings of the design are made to pleasure the labia and nearby nerves in that region. The sexy butterfly vibrator is fitted with straps that wrap around a woman's waist and thighs to keep it secure and in place for hands-free stimulation.
It’s quite widely known that this particular type of vibrator can give a woman a very powerful orgasm, and this is distinctly because it vibrates and stimulates right up against the clitoris. And due to its hands-free nature and clever design archetype, it can be used solo while masturbating or with a willing partner during foreplay, role play or sexual intercourse. A fun fact: the very first original butterfly vibrator was created to look just like a delicate butterfly, but numerous other designers have incorporated other designs, like the ones which look like dolphins, or even birds.
In terms of saleability, butterfly vibrators are real eye catchers and in most circumstances can nearly always promise real, intensively-inspired orgasms too. These adult sex toys mesmerize women in terms of appearance and for their powerful stimulation abilities as well. Most women are simply stunned by the intensity used to arouse and proclaim a woman who is looking to find the perfect ‘O’ through masturbation or sexual play.
Butterfly vibrators really do perfectly cling to every woman's vagina. And depending on the model chosen, these butterfly vibrators can stimulate you vaginally or anally. For that reason, a feature enabled by many of them also allows for small dildos or plugs which are worked into the vibrator's mechanism inside.
Some models have a small butterfly on the shaft to stimulate your clitoris with purpose-built antennae. The features and diversity available makes it functional and unique. Many women claim that it’s their favorite sex toy, hands down and without a doubt.
Most butterfly sex toys are battery operated. They are available with up to ten vibration levels which can sit directly on the vibrator or via a remote control. Butterfly vibrators can be packed easily and discreetly into luggage for traveling, and look close enough to normal underwear because of their clever and delicate design.
The wireless butterfly vibrators are classic versions of the original archetype, incorporating a clit-stimulating butterfly with the addition of adjustable waist and thigh straps for a closer, more secure fit. Usually sold in conjunction with one of the easily removable, multi-speed, bullet vibrators for more variety in play, it’s very easy to understand why it’s a uniquely-brilliant favorite amongst the ladies. This type can also be waterproof, depending upon the model you buy, and so you can even take it into the tub for some very pleasing bath times. Check label instructions first.
Other butterfly vibrators have the original and classic shape, with some including an extension that allows you to enjoy G-spot stroking as well. If this is the case, there’ll be a curved shaft attached for erotic G-spot stimulation.
Some of the other models incorporate the same functions of traditional butterfly vibrators, but may also have a realistic shaft extension as well as an animal design that’s not a butterfly, like the dolphin or bird types.

Actually, clitoral arousal increases vaginal elasticity because it stimulates the primary function of the gland of the vagina, and this produces a lubrication which has a rejuvenating effect on the whole vaginal area. Additionally, if clitoral stimulation and orgasm are initiated on a regular basis, this will also improve the tone and elasticity of the entire area that is being lubricated.
In many case studies, it has also been found that women who have regular intercourse or masturbate often, do find that climaxing is easier. It has also been highlighted that incontinence is also reduced and blood flow is generally better too, and not just to the genital areas, but to every area in the entire body.
Some Safety Considerations
Always refer to the manufacturer and supplier manual for maintenance instructions and safety warnings. Always use for the area intended, otherwise it may get stuck or lodged in awkward places. Medical attention may also be required if this occurs.
Never share your butterfly sex toys. STIs (sexually transmitted infections) and/or bacterial or viral germs can be spread very easily. Bacteria and viruses love wet and warm places, so keep your toys clean and dry, before and after use.
Unless it’s waterproof, don’t use it in the bath or shower. Electrocution is possible, and if it’s battery operated, the product may get waterlogged and remain unfixable.
