As my last testing session drew to a close, I pulled out what could be called "The Big Guns" of the day in the sense that they were the high end, more expensive and complicated toys of the day. One of them was the advanced Platinum Jack Rabbit and the other was the subject of this review, The Waterproof Beaded Butterfly, both by California Exotic Novelties. Unlike the cheaper toys of the day that were sometimes hit or miss, both of these seemed to provide a lot of staying power that not only knocked the socks off the gals (insider joke) but resulted in continual pleasure even when the ladies were all but spent on the previous testing. In a sense, this aspect of testing is to level the playing field out a bit, a gal going in fresh always more receptive to some good vibrations (and to be fair, I generally try several sessions on more expensive toys to begin with).

The device was larger and thicker than most, just over 1.65" and the total length (10"+) allowed for just over 5" of penetration from the main shaft. The toy took 3 AA batteries and I found out when I mistakenly put three used batteries into the machine that it had issues so use fresh batteries (I rarely make that mistake but I admit it and move onward) to make it work at optimal efficiency. Like some of the other toys that day, there were three settings for the spin effect that had the simulated pearls rotate around and the ability to reverse the direction quickly was nice. The three speeds of the vibrating bullet in the butterfly shaped extension used for clitoral stimulation started off at "fast", went to "WOW!", and then to "Ohmifuckinggod" according to Nadine. The amusing thing I noticed was how the antenna took specific patterns at the speeds, the first was at little circles, the second focused them straight ahead, and the third, well just make sure you don't turn it off when your gal pal is in a state of bliss.
A close up of the control panel.
At high speed for both controls, the device ate batteries pretty quickly, showing signs of diminished capacity before the two hour mark, and the claim that it was waterproof seemed accurate for my static sink test (I set it gingerly in a sink full of water). The box said it was phathalate free so your girlfriend's coochie will be safe though socially conscious consumers might want to keep in mind it was made in China (a repressive regime when it comes to civil rights of workers). The box was not impressive to me after so many toys with metal boxes, felt linings, and other marketably awesome gimmicks the ladies clamor for but the toy itself was easily worth a rating of Highly Recommended or better depending on how you choose to use it so give this one some consideration, you won't regret it.
