1. a dance move performed by girls when shocking out in the dance, involves the girl bending her knees, while keeping her back upright, placing each hand on each knee, and gyrating their hips back and forth, while spreading their legs back and forth, like a butterfly flapping its wings.
Came from afro-Caribbean influenced music such as dancehall, where sexually explicit dances are favoured.
Spread to other underground music in the UK such as Ragga, UK-garage, Grime, and even house music.

"ya body's, so pleasing to the eye,
especially when ya do the pogo, or the butterfly!"

2. A sexual position - based on missionary, but with the man holding the girls knees right back and out. Is also the basis of the above dance move. Gwwaarn girls!

Beautiful, unique, and strong individuals that offer support and strength to each other in order to help one another lead fulfilling, wonderful lives. Butterflies are all over the world and in the unlikeliest of places, but if you ever get the opportunity to meet one, you are most likely the luckiest person in the universe.
Butterflies just helped me through a really tough time. I love them!

A dance move, usually done solo, in which the body moves like a butterfly would flap its wings. Picture there are two girls right next to you both standing on chairs. You are smacking each of them in the ass. As for the legs you just move them in rhythm with your arms.
DAMN!!! Look at Seth rocking the butterfly!!

A song from a Dance Dance Revolution game. Loved by weeaboo girls all over, though it's a catchy song with a good beat and is made by two Swedish girls.
Ai yai yai, I'm your little butterfly
Green black and blue make the colours in the sky

Ai yai yai where's my samurai?

A death defying swimming stroke performed by those extraordinarily strong or insanely stupid. Caution: If you are not like Michael Phelps or any other Olympic swimmer please do not attempt. Many people have died or gotten injured by doing this swimming stroke, and trust me when I say that steroids will not help.

Jimmy: "What a stupid guy"
