Male Masturbation Toys Review: The Fleshlight Original Ribbed
I have been waiting a while to do a review on this product. After a few weeks of deciding on which model to get, I landed on the Fleshlight Pink Lady Stamina. And after having it for about a week, I can say with great PLEASURE, that it was worth the wait.
The Fleshlight is the number one male masturbation toy in the world and now I see why.
Let’s start with the packaging. Today, most sex toys come in the standard plastic see-through wraps. When I opened the shipping box I was quite impressed with how Fleshlight presents it’s products. It comes on a metal cylinder – something usually reserved for a good bottle of scotch. When I opened the container and took it out, the size of it surprised me. It is about 9 inches long and about the same in circumfrence. The Fleshlight looks like…you guess it, an oversized flashlight. Also included in the container are some marketing materials and a 2 oz. sample of ID water-based lubricant. More about that later.
The outer case is made of black plastic. The top half is wide, again about 9 inches in circumfrence. The bottom half is narrower, molded into a handle – for obvious reasons. Screwing off the cap reveals a soft pink insert. The opening – for this model – is a vagina, complete with labia, when spread reveals a hole. Yes – this is where your penis goes. At the bottom of the handle is another screw-off cap. This is designed to control the amount of resistance. A nice little engineering touch. Again, more on that later.
The insert is made of what Fleshlight calls a “secret covered by a series of US patents”. Not sure exactly what it is, but, it does feel good. It is very soft and pliable. While it doesn’t ACTUALLY feel like human skin, there are some similarities and it does a good job at simulating.
One of the things that are often said about the Fleshlight is lubricate WELL before use. Since, I am not one to follow the rules, I decided to try and stick my penis inside with without any lube. Not much luck. So I grabbed the ID lube and applied generously.
Next up, my penis. Upon entry, I immediately got a rush. Part of that was knowing that I was sticking my dick somewhere no dick had gone before. The other part was the new and interesting feeling of the lube and the CyberSkin against my member.
So what do you do next? Stroke, of course! I had yet to adjust the screw-off cap that controls the resistance, so the smooth and slick feeling of sticking your penis into a wet vagina wasnt really there. I made a little adjustment and that made a major difference. I was now able to easy slide in and out without much effort. The more I stroked, the warmer the Fleshlight – this obviously heightened the excitement and pleasure. Within a few minutes, I felt like I was going to climax, so I decided to dial it back a bit but increasing the resistance. That seemed to work well, as I was able to conintue to pleasure myself without cumming. Then, of course I became selfish and decided it was time cum, so I opened it up again and brought myself to orgasm in short order. Another great feature of the Fleshlight is little to no mess. Your cum stays inside until you are ready to clean it.
I did notice that after about a week’s worth of use, it does need to be cleaned. It starts to smell like…..sex. To clean your Fleshlight, you simply slip out the insert and place it in a bowl of warm water and let it soak for an hour or so. Then take it out and let it dry.
After trying the Fleshlight Ribbed, I am very curious see what the others feel like. Fleshlight makes a extensive line of products with anal openings and those that are shaped like a mouth. They also have a line they call Fleshlight Girls – which are toys copied from the ‘bits’ of adult stars. They include Stoya, Teagan Presley, Jenna Haze, Misty Stone, Tori Black and Tera Patrick.
I am definitely going with a Fleshlight Butt next time, just not sure which model or texture.
If I had a scale to measure this one, I would give it 5 erections (out of 5). Well worth the money. After you use it, you will most certainly be CUMMING back for more.
