How to use a Fleshlight – the world’s best-selling male sex toy

At a quick glance, you’d think it was an innocent flashlight – but it’s actually an ingenious sex toy for men. Read on to find out how to use this handyman torch for your pleasure.

The Fleshlight masturbators are the world’s best-selling male sex toys, and for good reason – expertly crafted and designed, easy to use, amazingly satisfying…and so subtly constructed that, when stored, it draws no attention.

What is a Fleshlight masturbator?

Used on the penis, these premium strokers are designed to replicate penetrative sex, providing sensations that are just like the real deal. Unscrew the top of the iconic Fleshlight to be enlivened by appealing orifices that the brand has spent years perfecting.

Some Fleshlights come with neutral (or ‘universal’) orifices, but the openings are typically moulded of realistic vaginas, mouths, or anuses. You can even choose an exact replica of your favourite pornstar’s vagina or butthole (Fleshlight Girl and Fleshjack Boys ranges).

About the Fleshlight brand

Fleshlight is a brand but, like Xerox, the name has basically become synonymous with all male masturbators of its ilk.

Since its establishment in Texas in 1995, Fleshlight has become the maker of the world’s best-selling adult pleasure products for men, and remains a family-run business to this day. Fleshlight’s high-quality male masturbators kick-started the trend and popularity of male sex toys.

Pleasures from a Fleshlight masturbator

There’s lots to love about Fleshlight toys, as evidenced by their huge, loyal following worldwide. As with all sex toys for men, male masturbators (or strokers) let you experiment with your own pleasure and enjoy new, mind-blowing stimulation – trust us, you have never enjoyed masturbating as much as you will with this toy.

We understand that there is sometimes a certain stigma attached to masturbation with a sex toy, so if you feel intimidated, let us reassure you. There is absolutely no need to feel embarrassed. When it comes to focusing on your sexual well-being, there’s no time like the present!

Key features of a Fleshlight masturbator

The classic Fleshlight consists of a hard plastic, torch-like case, an inner sleeve with a soft, textured canal, a realistic vagina orifice underneath the screw-on top lid, and an opening at the bottom for suction adjustment.

The soft sleeve inside the meticulously crafted Fleshlight is made from SuperSkin, a patented real-feel material that provides a fabulously silky feel and truly lifelike sensation. The intense internal canals heighten pleasure and take masturbation to a whole new level.

The Fleshlight range features numerous anatomical reproductions, with vaginal, oral and anal openings designed for all fancies and preferences.

The device allows you to increase or decrease the intensity of the stimulation, depending on how you use it. Opening the bottom lid reduces stimulation due to increased air passage, allowing you to enjoy slow masturbation. Or, keep the lid closed to experience stronger stimulation from the increased suction.

Fleshlight’s signature torch-like casing makes it look absolutely discreet when stored away.

How to clean a Fleshlight masturbator

The Fleshlight is made of a soft, body-safe material, but it is sturdy and durable, and if it is cleaned and maintained properly, it can be enjoyed over and over again.

The bit to clean is the textured inner canal that runs throughout the Fleshlight sleeve. Simply remove the sleeve from its case and wash it under warm running water. For an intense clean, spray some Fleshwash (a special antibacterial sex toy cleaner) and rinse again with more warm water.

After cleaning, allow the sleeve to air-dry. Once completely dry, apply Fleshlight Renewing Powder to ensure the sleeve maintains its silky, lifelike texture.

Please note: do not use soap or any toy cleaner that contains soap or detergents as this may degrade the sleeve’s material.
