After much vigorous testing, I am pleased to finally be writing a review of the ever-popular and somewhat famous Fleshlight. Thanks to SomethingSexyPlanet, Jack had the immense pleasure of sliding his penis into this very realistic artificial vagina. No one knows what the Fleshlight insert is made of, but my best guess would be a combination if silicone and other polymers. I found it to be large and somewhat heavy, and not at all a convincing flashlight, but that’s beside the point I suppose, LOL.
I think that I was more excited than Jack about the arrival of this product. As soon as I touched it I was impressed with the feel of the ‘skin’ and the quality of the moulding. I mean some of those fake vaginas look like something out of the movie Tremors. After taking a look-see over the instructions I was immediately alarmed by the fact that they forbid you from cleaning your Fleshlight with soap. No mention of adult toy cleaner either, but only isopropyl alcohol is recommended for cleaning. Basically they instruct you to rinse it with water and that’s it. Hmmmmm, that bothers me for some reason. I mean, I doubt anyone really shares their Fleshlight, but you never know! I want to be able to sterilize it (no boiling it either). Of course, I read that AFTER I’d already washed the thing with soapy water. It didn’t seem damaged but I guess one should not keep doing that over and over.
You may only use water-based lubricants with the Fleshlight as well. Oil based is not allowed, and there was no mention of silicone. Between uses, and after cleaning, you must also dust it inside and out with corn starch (NO baby powder or talcum). This will keep the insert from feeling sticky and kinda gross.
Once I got all the care and use instructions straight, Jack got down to…errm, business, LOL.
I used a little ID Glide to get the Fleshlight ready for use and then let Jack take over. He slid his cock into the silky soft opening and pumped it up and down a couple of times. You can adjust the ‘suction’ by tightening or loosening the end of the Fleshlight. Jack enjoyed that feature a great deal. In fact, he enjoyed the Fleshlight overall a great deal. He said that it was a little heavy for using while just laying on your back, wouldn’t take your arm long to tire out. However, there are a LOT of alternative ways to use it. Some people wedge it in between their mattress and box spring, or slide the skinnier end into a shoe and then put pillows around the shoe and go to it missionary style. Your partner can also hold it between her legs or breasts. I’m sure there are many more. Maybe if I have any Fleshlight users in the audience they can share their methods in the comment section?
Jack says that the Fleshlight is as close to the real thing as you can get. He remarked that he wished he’d had one as a single guy because jerking off would have been a lot more fun! It’s also come in very handy during Period Week here at Shasta’s Lair.
To make it feel even more life-like try heating up the insert in hot water. DO NOT boil it or microwave it. Simply fill a sink or large container with hot water and let the Fleshlight soak until it reaches the desired temperature. You might also want to let your bottle of lube float around in there as well so that it’s nice and warm. You might have to empty the water and refill it with new hot water if you want the Fleshlight really heated.
I really like that the fleshy insert is removable for easier cleaning. Once you finish rinsing it out make sure to leave it to dry thoroughly, preferably near a window or vent. Store it inside the plastic housing with both ends loosely screwed on to allow for continued air flow. Don’t forget to dust it with corn starch once it’s dried.
The Fleshlight is available in a variety of inserts. Ours is the vaginal opening in pink, but you can also find them in mocha and clear/crystal. There are mouth openings, anus openings, and non-descript which is basically a slit that makes the Fleshlight look like a piggy bank, HA HA. The insides can also be tailored to your needs, weather it be ultra tight, textured or ribbed, there is something for everyone.
Jack really enjoys his Fleshlight and recommends that ALL single men do themselves a favour and get one of these. It sure beats your hand, according to him.
