Should I Buy a Fleshlight, and What is it?

Should I Buy a Fleshlight? 

The question “Should I buy a Fleshlight?” pops up frequently on Reddit, Quora, and similar sites. The reality is: other’s experience with any product may vary from your own, especially when it comes to pleasure. However, when making a purchase, it’s natural to seek out information and reviews. I research purchases to the point of exhaustion sometimes. Although as a consumer, I have realized a very simple fact. I don’t know the person sharing the information, they are a stranger behind a keyboard. Also, I don’t know what their experience level is, personal situation, what they consider pleasurable, how many times they may have used it, their motivation behind the review, or if they even own the product. 

Only You Can Decide 

Although some information and reviews are credible, you need to consider the source. Also, don’t entirely rely on someone else’s experience or opinion to make your decision. In particular, when it comes to sex toys. They are very personal and subjective. People experience pleasure differently, and there are a lot of factors that go into it. If the source is credible you can rely on the factual portion of the information. For example, claims that can be supported with facts, not opinion. Ultimately, only you can decide if you should buy a Fleshlight. You won’t know if it’s right for you unless you try it. 

We realize buying a Fleshlight is an investment. Therefore, we offer a 30-Day guarantee. If you don’t like it exchange it for something different.   

What is a Fleshlight, and What are My Options?   

Fleshlight Original Pink Lady

Steve Shubin created Fleshlight in the late 90’s. Told to abstain from sex while his wife was pregnant with twins, Steve saw an opportunity. At the time men’s sex toys were lackluster at best. He wanted a men’s masturbator that looked and felt realistic. After trial and error, he created SuperSkin material. Next, Steve used the material to create a torso doll with a removable vagina. The problem was, Steve couldn’t even give it away to a friend that just wanted the ‘usable’ part. Steve realized he needed something that resembled a common household item. Above all, it had to be portable and discreet. He created a hard-plastic case that resembled an oversized flashlight. As a result, the Fleshlight Pink Lady was born. The name has become synonymous with male strokers, and it is the best selling male sex toy in the world!

Realistic Look and Feel 

Fleshlights stimulate your senses on multiple levels. The SuperSkin material mimics the feel of skin on skin contact. It’s durable, phthalate-free, and 100% body-safe. In addition, the sleeve will mimic body heat when warmed for a few minutes. The sleeve retains warmth through your session and adds another layer of realism. To warm the sleeve, use the Fleshlight Sleeve Warmer, or warm water soak. Warming is a personal preference and not required.

Remember the Georgia O’Keefe flower paintings that kind of looked like vulvasThe Pink Lady is similar, It’s not a replica but a tasteful depiction. Most of the product lines are anatomically correct, meaning the openings look like the real thing. Molded directly from today’s hottest pornstars, the Fleshlight Girl line is an exact replica of their intimate parts. That means Riley Reid, Elsa Jean, Angela White, Alexis Texas, and many others are available for your stroking pleasure. Even though it’s a handheld stroker, this attention to detail adds yet another layer of realism. It appeals visually, not just when you take the cap off but as you slide yourself in. The ICE line has clear sleeves and cases, taking visual impact another step further. Not only can you see the action, but anything inserted in ICE appears larger.

Even though sex toys have become more widely accepted, most people aren’t leaving their toys lying around. However, made to look like an oversized flashlight, the Fleshlight case is discreet and will likely be overlooked. The Fleshlight GO, Flight, and Quickshot are compact and even more discreet. As a result, they are easier to store and perfect for discreet travel.  


Using a Fleshlight has added benefits, like increased stamina and endurance. The saying “practice makes perfect” applies to your sexual health and relationships as well. Regular masturbation with any Fleshlight has the potential to drastically improve your stamina with a partner. Specifically designed to increase endurance, the Stamina Training Unit is a best seller. The canal is very tight at 3/8” diameter, in comparison most others vary from .5” to 1” diameter. The Stamina Training Unit has a consistent texture, densely packed with smooth pleasure balls. The goal of this texture is to provide consistent and constant stimulation to your whole penis. As a result, it raises your tolerance without desensitizing you and increases your endurance.  

The Gold Standard

Safety First (or Third?) 

The dreaded drought, we’ve all been there. Your other head takes over and questionable decisions ensue. A Fleshlight will never be a replacement for a partner or good ole fashioned sex. However, they can hold you over for a bit. Random hookups are great, but you’re dealing with emotions here. It may have been a one-night stand to you, meanwhile, they are planning your life together. Ok, I’m being extreme for the sake of humor. For real though, random hook-ups do come with potential risks of STD’s or unwanted pregnancy. Stay safe out there.
