On the surface of it, Fleshlight adult toys seem pretty simple – an extension of your hand that feels a little more like realistic sex, but not quite as big, bulky and hard to hide as a blow-up doll! However, there’s a wealth of new discoveries to be made inside those little tubes of specially formulated silicone… if you’ve recently purchased a Fleshlight adult toy or are thinking about it, here’s everything you’ll need to know about the Fleshlight.
Buying a Fleshlight Adult Toy
Many handheld pussy/anal sex simulators are called Fleshlights, although ‘Fleshlight’ is actually a particular brand. If you’re looking to buy one of these toys, have a browse through the men’s adult toy section generally, don’t just search by the name.
Look for toys made of Cyberskin or ‘realistic feel’ silicone – there is an amazing difference between these and standard old silicone!
You’ll also notice that some are made in a flashlight style, while others have a flat base to help you ‘mount’ the toy to a surface for hands-free operation (“Hey look, no hands!”). The mountable ones can cost a little more, but you can get the same effect from a handheld one by jamming it between your mattress and base, or between two couch cushions.
Prepping and Using Your Fleshlight Adult Toy
The proper prep can make a big different to how your Fleshlight adult toy feels. Here’s the usual MO:
Fill the sink full of warm-hot water
Remove the insert from the casing and sit it in the sink for 5 minutes
Repeat if you like, or for thicker inserts
DON’T use the microwave or boiling water
Pop some wipes nearby to help with the cleanup – you’ll want to get the lube off your hands to get a good grip on your adult toy
Slather the inside with water-based lube only; silicone-based lube will react with the adult toy and melt it.
Once you’re ready to go, try some different ideas like:
Using it as an extension of your hand as you’d normally masturbate
Jamming the Fleshlight between your mattress and the bed base for doggie-style simulation
Alternatively, push it down between your couch cushions to hold it in place.
Popping your adult toy into a shoe for unusual angles
Simply hold it on a countertop or the side of a couch
This takes a while – however, it is essential that this type of toy is cleaned properly, because the closed environment, warmth and wetness make an ideal bacterial breeding ground.
Run warm water through the Fleshlight after use, and use a cloth and your fingers to do the initial clean. After this, use some specially designed adult toy cleaner and sanitiser to leave your Fleshlight ready for it’s next adventure.
Fleshlight Stamina Training Units
These adult toys are apparently (!) designed to help guys last longer in bed. When I first heard this, I imagined a device that somehow sensed when ejaculation was going to occur and projected an imagine of Roseanne Barr naked onto the nearest wall… but sadly, this isn’t the case!
The base idea of the Fleshlight Stamina Training Unit is to simulate the feeling of a real lady’s love tunnel as closely as possible, so that you are eventually desensitised to the experience.
Does it work? Customers certainly say so! Some of the most enthusiastic adult toy reviews you’ll ever read have been written about the Fleshlight Stamina Training Unit. For example:
“I did not expect much but was surprised big time. The Stamina Training Unit does indeed feel good. Actually it did feel too good for me. I came just entering the thing. I was both shocked and amazed.”
“This thing is the most awesome masturbator in the world, I say its as good or better than a real pussy! By working slowly with it (training) it does help holding out longer… This thing is up there with the lightbulb as far as incredible inventions!”
