When most people think of sex toys, they tend to think of the countless items made for a woman’s pleasure. The closest varieties for a straight man tend to be those he can share with his lady. While there have always been some kinky stuff for guys to consider, most were deemed a waste of money.

That all changed with the Fleshlight, however. Currently, this is one of the fastest selling adult toys and is as popular now as it was when it debuted.

Surprising Origins of Fleshlight

Though this is still relatively new to the market, the patent for it was filed for back in 1998 by a man named Steve Shubin. His patent described the product he originally intended as a device that would help to collect sperm.

The documents also mention that this “device” would offer a safer alternative to actual intercourse and so minimizing risks of catching STDs, or getting pregnant.

3 Main Features of This Male Sex Toy

Feature #1 – Casing

fleshlight cases

As the name suggests, the casing of this sex toy bears a resemblance to well … a flashlight (just check out the very first image on top of this post). It is made out of plastic material that is solid.

Pay attention: There is a wide variety of colors you can choose from. You can even choose a transparent / see-through casing!

Feature #2 – Orifice Design

3 Fleshlight designs of sleevesLet´s get back to that flashlight resemblance. Where there would be a bulb producing the light, there is a pink top made from a flesh like material. You can either choose a default model with just a regular hole, or you can pick one designed to resemble a woman´s vagina, anus, or even mouth.

By the way: There are special versions of this sex toy that have exact molds of private parts of various pornstars. I have even seen a special freaks collection that includes orifices resembling a vampire, zombie, or even alien.

Feature #3 – Sleeve Material

pink Fleshlight sleevePast the opening is further flesh-like stuff imitating the feeling of being inside a woman. The inner sleeve of a Fleshlight is extremely customizable. For example, you can choose:

  • Color that resembles the ethnicity you’re most attracted to (you can even choose a see-through option).
  • Inside texture that will stimulate your penis while using this toy (over 48 different options to choose from).

Each Fleshlight sleeve is made from a patented mixture of medical grade phthalate-free polymers – a substance that is called a Real Feel Superskin”. Despite the similar texture and appearance, it is NOT a silicone, latex, nor plastic.

You can customize and make your own Fleshlight easily!

If you are a man with specific tastes, you can actually build your own model through Interactive Life Forms’ website. This includes the casing color, orifice of your sleeve as well as the texture inside!

3 Most Popular Types of Fleshlights

Type #1 – Porn Stars

3 fleshlight girls models

One of the most popular additions to this brand was ”Fleshlight Girls”, the custom molded varieties meant to feel like lovemaking with actual porn stars.

These are made according to precise replicas of their:

  • Mouths
  • Pussies
  • Anuses

You can choose from these actresses: Nina HartleyAlexis TexasMisty StoneAriel Piper Fawn, Teagan PresleyJenna HazeTori BlackJesse JaneStoyaAsa AkiraTera PatrickKatsuniLisa AnnRiley SteeleKayden KrossBibi Jones, and Jessica Drake.

Type #2 – Stamina Training Unit (STU)

Lady STU Package

One extremely practical version, for example, is aimed at increasing a man’s sexual endurance. Known as the Stamina Training Unit, men can use the item as much as a sex toy as for practice for the real thing.

Pay attention: I do not know about anything more realistic that can so closely replicate the actual inside of a woman´s vagina. Therefore, this version is ideal for men who suffer from premature ejaculation.

Type #3 – Flight

The Fleshlight Flight Pilot plus Instructor

Another popular version of this product is called the Flight. It is made to be just as satisfying as its original varieties but in a far more subtle package.

There are two main models, namely:

  1. Flight Pilot
  2. Flight Instructor

Pay attention: In fact, the head of both versions is translucent, making it appear more like an actual flashlight to an observer who’s not looking closely. Thanks to this and its much more compact design this version is ideal for your travels!

Upgrade It for More Pleasure

various fleshlight upgrades

The masturbation with this product alone is an amazing experience, but you can still boost it thanks to these upgrades:

  • DJByrd

    I had to laugh a little when I saw this. It’s really the 2.0 version of a blow up doll, minus the beach ball feeling and the fake looking girl. With that said, I’d still buy one of these. Technology has certainly come a long way when you can get a sex toy that performs exactly the same as what you see on a computer screen, and it has the same fleshy feeling as a real woman. I can see where this would beat traditional self-gratification any day.

    • James Buzinko

      Trust me DJByrd that it is much better than self-gratification.

  • clive

    I have a Fleshlight, so I can speak from experience. I I like how you can have a go at it with your favorite porn star. The V-Stroker definitely makes it a next generation sex toy and it’s 1,000x better than webcam girls.

    They also have several different textures to choose from. The problem with the textures is that it can get addicting. I already have 3 and I’m looking at getting a 4th soon. I’m in between girlfriends and prefer not to rush into anything. Fleshlight certainly delivers for a bloke like me.

    • James Buzinko

      It seems like a product especially made for guy like a you 🙂

  • Derrick

    I tried the Stamina Training Unit (STU) after seeing it recommended on another forum for my premature ejaculation problem. I have to say I’ve been very impressed with the results.

    Normally the first time I sleep with a woman I cum in less than 5 minutes. The newness of it all is what excites me. But since I started using the STU, I’m going strong for at least 30 minutes. I don’t feel ashamed anymore, and I’m the ladies aren’t complaining either. In fact, they’ve been calling me now instead of the other way around. I can’t recommend the STU enough if you have problems with stamina. It’s worth the small price tag.

    • James Buzinko

      I have heard similar experience of other guys with this model!

  • Rob Valentino

    I tried a few different Fleshlight sleeves, but nothing compares to the Vibrating one. My ex used to do a kind of ‘hum’ when she would give me oral. I loved that feeling on my cock and the vibrating Fleshlight more than copies that experience. It’s actually better than my ex because it’s consistent — and I can go straight to bed afterwards, lol. If I had to take 3 things to a desert island, I’d seriously pack one of these with me.

    • James Buzinko

      Thanks Rob for sharing your feedback. Vibrating one is among the best!


    My best friend promised his (then) wife that he wouldn’t have any strippers at his bachelor party. No problem! We gave him the Sex in a Can pack with the 3 different fleshlights. One had a vagina, the other lips and the third was an anus. Two years later he says it was well worth whatever we paid.

    He and the wife are now going through a separation. They live out in Alaska, where there are more men than women. Now he appreciates that funny gift more than we can possibly imagine!

    • James Buzinko

      It looks like you are really great friends! 🙂

  • 1AlexisFan

    There’s an Alexis Texas version?!! Umm, I have to go order some, uh textbooks. Yah, that’s it, textbooks. 🙂

    • James Buzinko

      Sure, these “textbooks” feel really like a live experience!

  • brian

    You have to post pictures of the freak versions! They sound ridiculous yet somehow cool.

    • James Buzinko

      I have redone this article. There are now these images as well.

  • timothy69

    I am a Fleshlight owner and it is one of the best purchases that I have made. It really does feel real!

    • James Buzinko

      I can only agree with this statement.

  • dean w.

    These are expensive but they seem incredible! Are the really the size of a flashlight because they look much larger.

    • James Buzinko

      No, they are a little bit larger than regular flashlights.

  • diana.

    I might buy one of those for my horndog boyfriend as he is always trying to get some!

    • James Buzinko

      That will probably be a good thing to do 🙂

  • steven

    I own two of these, a mouth and a vagina and they feel so realistic that I don’t mind not getting any from my girlfriend when she is out of town. Thanks for the review here, maybe it will help a lot of guys out.

    • James Buzinko

      That is true! Fleshlight made really great job in making their products as good as the actual sex!

  • Tony

    I bought one around 2002. At the time, I was in my late twenties, and I simply never could reach sexual satisfaction. I needed to have sex (any kind, including masturbation) at least twice a day (sometimes more) just to cool myself off. I had tried a few toys, but they were al awful, disappointing or irritating.

    One day, as a scoured the Net looking for visual support for masturbation, I stumbled on a forum discussion about Fleshlights. This bunch of guys raved and were all happy about theirs, so I got curious (of course). I still had my doubts because of my previous horrific experiences with male toys, so I kept searching around. Finally, seeing the reviews were generally positive, my cock made me buy the Fleshlight.

    I (finally) found the box on my doorstep a few days later, it was a Thursday. I was too curious to wait any longer : forget supper, I wanted it to try it right away ! I went to the bathroom and prepared it as they suggested then (the one I had bought was pink, and there was a white powder covering it : they suggested to rinse it in warm/hot water), then I lubed it after inserting the sleeve in the plastic holder. Of course, I was already nude and hard. I wanted to go to my bedroom but I just couldn’t wait. So there I was, nude in front of my bathroom’s mirror. I placed the Fleshlight’s opening in front of my cock’s head, and began to work myself in. I still remember my face : I was awed almost immediately and my eyes were almost popping out of their sockets ! The feeling was a mix between a fellatio and vaginal sex (I had the original untextured interior). It felt so good that I gasped and moaned, and my legs felt wobbly. I was overwhelmed almost immediately. Obviously, it was a good buy already ! After supper, I went to bed with the Fleshlight and I was a happy cock once more, although this time I managed to last longer. I had to try it again before sleep. And again the next (Friday) morning. Not only it kept feeling wonderful, but it didn’t chafe my dick like the toys I had tried before !

    Needless to say, I was eager to return home that day. I felt like a kid on Christmas eve ! As I returned home, I didn’t loose time, and soon I was fucking the Fleshlight. I just couldn’t stop all evening, and the next day and night too (Saturday).

    Why am I telling you all this ? Because, at the end of the weekend, I experienced a totally new feeling : for the first time since my early teens, I was feeling sexually appeased ! I felt happy, lighthearted.

    Needless to say that this Fleshlight was used and used again afterwards. For me it was virtually a life-saving discovery as it greatly improved my quality of life. 12 years later, I now use a White Tenga Flip-Hole instead, but the reality is that even if I am very happily married, I still need to use it many times a week. “Human sex” is emotionally the best thing there is, but nothing can empty my balls and quench my sex drive like my Tenga (nowadays) or my Fleshlight (which I used for almost 8 years).

    I often hear or read people saying that this is sick, and that one shouldn’t make love to an object. I think this is totally ludicrous. First, when I use my Tenga or my Fleshlight, I’m not making love : I’m masturbating. But I’m masturbating with a device especially designed for male gratification. Yes I could use my hand (and I still do), just like I could walk to work instead of taking my car. Second, these people need to be reminded that women have dildos and vibrators and nobody seems to think that women are sick to use them. Just like male sleeves, the female devices are optimized for the female sexual needs, yet women still have sex with men !

    So if you need to masturbate, give yourself a quality masturbation sleeve (like the Fleshlight or Tenga)… and some lube !

      Man, you just nailed it with this comment. You have my respect for taking your time to respond to this article with such an effort. I wish you all the best!

      • Tony

        I’m sorry for the lengthy tirade, but whenever I see a comment trying to downplay sex toys for men (or scorning men for using them), it gets me angry. I don’t remember exactly what ticked me on the page. Maybe was it in the comments, I don’t remember…

        Anyway, I find it unhealthy to see men being scorned for using sex toys (or even simply because they masturbate), while the same people glorify women for doing just the same. (For instance : ” If you’re like many women, you have had a long-term relationship with a vibrator”, (from this source: ) and that’s only one easily found example). And I hope one day men will stop feeling bad for using sex toys.

        In my opinion, masturbation is a sign of respect. For yourself, of course, but for the significant other too : it means you are not imposing your sexual need to the other. It means that when you have sex, it is for all the good reasons. Not simply to empty your balls.

        Sleeves and other masturbation toys are tools in my arsenal to better take care of my sexual needs. If I hadn’t found them, I would have needed to masturbate more, not less. I sometimes wonder if I would have even found the time to date !

        (Sorry about yet another lengthy post, I won’t post anymore, as I don’t want to spam !)

        • James Buzinko

          Man I can only agree with you on this Tony. You have just spoken from my heart.
