How Does a Fleshlight Work?
The Fleshlight is one of the best, and most popular, male sex toys on the market. This article explains how a Fleshlight works and how it’s different to other male masturbators.
A Fleshlight is used by inserting your penis into its opening, which is designed to simulate an orifice. You then use it to masturbate by repeatedly moving it and down the length of your shaft. The gentle friction stimulates your penis, make the masturbation more pleasant and help you reach climax.
What is a Fleshlight?
A Fleshlight is a male sex toy and masturbation aid. You can see below what a Fleshlight would look like if we cut in in half.
A Fleshlight is composed of a soft insert and a protective plastic case. The insert is made of a soft, skin-realistic material called Super Skin and is the part used for penetration. Its plastic case protects the soft insert, provides a grip as you slide it along the length of your penis, and has an adjustable cap at its base that controls suction.
As a useful design feature, the plastic case is shaped like a flashlight (this is how the Fleshlight got its name) which allows for discreet storage. Its shape means it’s less likely to arouse suspicion if it’s found accidentally. This is another reason that explains why Fleshlights
What Does a Fleshlight Do?
The Fleshlight enhance masturbation by giving you a realistic simulation of an orifice in which to insert your penis. It also provides a convenient place to deposit your semen after use, instead of using a tissue, sock, or something similar. Instead, you simply clean and dry your Fleshlight out after using it then put it back in its case.
How Does a Fleshlight Work Compared to Other Male Masturbators?
Male masturbators work by stimulating the penis from repeated penetration. They act the same way a real orifice like a vagina does. That’s why sometimes they are called “Pocket Pussies.”
Masturbators provide a place for you to insert your penis and cause pleasurable friction that helps you reach climax and enhanced your orgasm. The Fleshlight works in the same way but is superior to other male masturbators for four reasons: realism, reusability, range
The Fleshlight is made from a realistic material called Super Skin. Its soft but firm texture is designed to feel like a real orifice and is a large part of the Fleshlight’s appeal. On top of the lifelike material, you can find some realistic Fleshlights textures that mimic oral, vaginal or anal feels. What’s more, Super Skin is designed to be warmed up with ease, which adds to the realism and the pleasure you experience when using your Fleshlight.
For an event more realistic experience, it’s possible to use your Fleshlight hands-free. Indeed, another benefits of Fleshlights is that they are compatible with a lot of accessoires like shower mounts, or Fleshlights holders that let you enjoy the experience without using your hands.
Secondly, the Fleshlight is designed to be durable: to be reused often without becoming damaged. As you can easily remove the soft insert after using to masturbate, it’s much easier to clean and maintain, adding to its longevity. How long Fleshlights last is one the main benefit of the brand. With proper care, your
Lastly, the Fleshlight offers a far larger range of experiences than any other male masturbator on the market. Its popularity means it has more varieties and accessories than alternative products. For a start, as its soft insert can be easily removed, it’s highly interchangeable. This means there’s no reason to simply own one insert and many Fleshlight users have several to suit their tastes. The insert is available as a range of orifices (vagina, anus, mouth), skin colors, and, most importantly, textures. Inserts are available in dozens of different textures, each of which provides a different level of tightness, friction, and feel to provide varying sensations and experiences.
It’s even possible to purchase Fleshlight inserts that are based on the vaginas of a range of popular adult film stars and erotic models. Some of these inserts have internal canals with textures that are exclusive to a particular pornstar. This offers another way to immerse yourself in the experience and further distinguishes the Fleshlight from other male masturbators.
Fleshlight Stimulation Levels
Since there is a large choice insert, a Fleshlight offer a wider range of stimulation levels. We’ve already mentioned the realism aspect, but while some Fleshlight textures are more realistic, other are all about intense stimulation. If you’re looking for deep pleasure and vivid feelings, there is some Fleshlight model just for you.
What’s even more interesting is the suction cap. Since you can adjust the level of suction by tightening the cap, you have control over the level of stimulation. If you want something more intense, you can tighten the cap. If you’re using a more textured insert and want to reduce the level of stimulation, you can loosen it.
How to Use a Fleshlight – How a Fleshlight Session Works
The ideal Fleshlight session consist of five steps.
- Warm your Fleshlight
- Lube Your Fleshlight
- Enjoy Your Fleshlight
- Clean Your Fleshlight
- Dry Your Fleshlight
Warm Your Fleshlight
The first step in using a Fleshlight is to warm it. This heightens the realism and makes using it far more pleasurable. The easiest way to do this is by immersing it in very warm (not boiling, or you will damage its material over time) water for approximately 20 minutes. For best results, replace the warm water after 10 minutes to achieve an ideal temperature.
Alternative methods of warming your Fleshlight include the use of a warming wand (a metal rod that’s placed inside your Fleshlight) or a fleshwarmer (a sleeve in which you place your Fleshlight). Both of which are accessories which can be purchased inexpensively online and help you to save time.
Lube Your Fleshlight
Next, lube your Fleshlight using a good water-based lubricant. Super Skin is made from a silicone composite so you should not use a silicone or oil-based lube – both will damage your Fleshlight. As well as heating your Fleshlight, you can also heat your lubricant by placing the water in warm water for 5-10 minutes. Once warm, squeeze a little lube into the opening of your Fleshlight and lube the internal canal using your fingers. Apply a little at a time, as too much lube decreases friction and reduces the stimulation you get from using it.
Enjoy Your Fleshlight
Once lubed, insert your penis into the Fleshlight and slide it along the length of your penis. The adjustable cap at the base of the Fleshlight controls suction and allows you to adjust it according to your preferences. When the cap is fully screwed on, suction is at its highest and is at its lowest when the cap is completely removed.
Clean Your Fleshlight
After use, clean your Fleshlight by rinsing it out with warm water and a little isopropyl alcohol. Hold the Fleshlight under the tap vertically and let the warm water run through it. Allow it to it pass all the way internal canal exit through the hole at its base. Get into the habit of cleaning your Fleshlight immediately after use and it will last a lot longer.
Dry Your Fleshlight
How you dry your Fleshlight is equally important as how you clean it. It’s important to dry your Fleshlight properly as failing to do so will result in it developing unsightly mold – and you’ll have to throw it away. To do so, remove the insert from its case, place it on a small towel, and gently pat it dry with another towel. It’s important to be gentle as drying it too aggressively will cause small cracks or tears to develop that are likely to injure your penis when you use your Fleshlight. If time or discretion is a factor, you can dry the inside of the Fleshlight faster with a microfiber cloth, or better yet, a hairdryer or mini fan.
How Does a Fleshlight Feel?
The main difference between using a Fleshlight and regular masturbation is how realistic it feels and the range of experiences it allows you to enjoy.
As it is made from Super Skin, using a Fleshlight is far more comparable to penetrating a real orifice than simply using your hand to masturbate. Super Skin is soft, firm, allows for the better application of lube, and has the ability to be heated increased pleasure and realism.
Also, with its range of different inserts and accessories, the Fleshlight allows for a wider range of stimulation than regular masturbation. Some inserts are smooth whilst others are ribbed. Some are tight while others are wider. The ability to customize your experience while using a Fleshlight is huge. Using a Fleshlight allows you to immerse yourself in the experience far more than regular masturbation.
Are Fleshlights Realistic?
With its realistic feel, using a Fleshlight is comparable to vaginal penetration. This is particularly true if you take the time to warm your Fleshlight and apply warm, water-based lubricant. This emulates the warm and smooth feeling of a vagina and makes the experience of using a Fleshlight all the more pleasurable, immersive, and above all, immersive.
What’s more, with the ability to control suction via the cap at the base of its protective case and the huge range of interchangeable inserts, a Fleshlight allows a level of customization that vaginal penetration doesn’t.
Let’s take tightness for instance: Your partner’s vagina is going to have a certain level of tightness. Now, women have the ability to squeeze their vaginal muscles to tighten them around your penis but only some of them employ this technique during sex. Plus, even if they do, they can’t do it for very long.
With a Fleshlight, on the other hand, you can change the inserts to make the internal canal tighter according to your preferences. You can also swap out the insert for one that’s ribbed or textured to stimulate yourself in any number of different ways.
Another benefit of using a Fleshlight is the convenience it offers. Even if you have a regular sexual partner, they may not be in the mood for sex when you are. In which case, you can simply masturbate with your Fleshlight for an enjoyable, realistic alternative.
