Calling Fleshlite a masturbation sleeve is like calling Grand Canyon a hole in the ground. According to its makers, it’s the most sold sex toy for men, ever (though now that the straight boys have discovered their bottoms, I suspect that the butt plugs & anal vibrators are catching up fast).
Don’t know about the numbers claims, but I loved this toy enough to buy a few as gifts for my honeys. Hey, I’m a geek. There’s something just delicious about seeing a hot man mounting a fancy piece of space age technology :)…
Tested: Ice Lady Fleshlight; Original & Wonder Wave
I got the Ice (clear) version sleeves and cases cause I’m an incorrigable voyeur. In the original state, transparency is not too obvious, but the addition of lube made a big difference. You’ll want to use plenty of lube anyway, as the material just sucks it up – this is common for most Cyberskin-style materials.
The texture is soft and very realistic, especially the Lady style which looks and feels like a yummy pussy of an excited woman. The sleeves are tighter and firmer at the opening – nice!
The case looks more like an Apollo era space craft than a flashlight. If you ever had the hots for Barbarella, you’ll feel right at home with an Ice Fleshlight in your hand (and on your cock). It has screw-on covers on both ends, and the back end cover can be loosened or tightened to create more or less suction.
Once it’s warmed up in some hot water and lubed up well, this toy feels like a real thing. My testers loved the feel of entering it, and one preferred the shallow strokes that focused most of the pressure on the upper part of his cock. The Wonder Wave felt great all throughout, and was more intense for deep strokes – the internal ribbing gives a lot of sensation to the head of a cock.
Both the Original and the Wonder Wave make for a long, leisurely session that builds up slowly into an intense orgasm. For a more intense feeling, pick one of the other textured sleeves, or the tighter Super or Ultra Tight.
A nice thing that’s different from other masturbation sleeves is the case – it’s easy to slip between the sofa covers or wedge somewhere else, so it’s fun to fuck in many different positions. If you’re holding it, it won’t get slippery in your hands – you can twist it and ram it without slipping all over. Some of the other hand held sleeves handle like fucking an unwilling jelly fish…
I’ll be ordering the new Vortex sleeve and update this report soon – according to reviews, if you’re searching for the most intense, explosive sensation, it’s the only way to go. My sexy lab subjects will just have to grin and bare it ;-).
Both the Original and the Wonder Wave sleeves are not very tight. My honeys have been blessed with above average size (not the porn star monsters, but enough to make you coo a happy “Ooooo” when they drop their pants), and they both reported they’d like more pressure. It looks like the Super Tight is a better choice for a smooth sleeve. (A word of warning – the Ultra Tight, a step tighter from the Super Tight, is reported to be *too* tight for many. Without a ton of lube, it can make you really, really sore. Not for prolonged sessions.)
Very easy. After use, slip the sleeve out of the case, run water through it, air dry well. After washing, it *will* get sticky – just use corn starch after it dries if this bothers you, and wet it down again before use. Always make sure that the toy is completely dry, and for long term storage put it away from dust but not airtight. It may mold if put away wet. Always use water based lubricants – others can damage this soft, sensual material.

Here’s a cheap do-it-yourself recipe for a poor man’s version of Fleshlite. No, it’s not going to blow your mind like the real thing… but you can use the savings to buy a few beers, and no one’s the wiser :-).
