Fleshlight Penis Stroker Facts And Information For Male Sexual Pleasure
The Fleshlight Male Masturbation Device, or Fleshjack, is a sex toy designed and marketed by Interactive Life Forms. The Fleshlight Masturbator is named for the flesh-like material used in its inner sleeve, as well as the plastic case that houses the sleeve, which is fashioned to look like an oversized flashlight. The inner sleeve is available with vagina, anus, buttocks, mouth and a more discreet slot-shaped orifice. All inner sleeves also come in a choice of various colors and internal textures.
The Fleshlight Masturbator was designed by former police officer Steve Shubin who was suffering a period of forced sexual abstinence while his wife was in a high-risk pregnancy. He was granted a patent in 1998 for his invention, as a "device for discreet sperm collection".
The Fleshlight Masturbator is stated to be made of medical and food grade, phthalate-free polymers. According to the Fleshlight website, the insert is not made from latex, plastic or silicone. The Fleshlight Masturbator FAQ claims the material is "a company secret covered by a series of US patents" but according to the patent itself the material is an elastomeric gel being formed from a mixture of 90-94% by weight of plasticizing oil and of 5-9% by weight of a block copolymer comprising an admixture of a styrene ethylene butylene styrene block copolymer and a styrene ethylene propylene styrene block copolymer combined in a ratio of 1:5 to 5:1. Due to the chemical composition of this material, it is only suitable for use with water-based lubricants, as oil-based lubricants or soaps will damage the Fleshlight Masturbator sleeve material permanently. The clear or "ice" colored insert is significantly "stickier" than the normal colorations due to the lack of pigment.
The Fleshlight Masturbator brand was launched in April 2007. Fleshjack is essentially the same as a Fleshlight, but specifically targeted toward the homosexual male demographic.
ILF most recently created the Fleshlight Girls brand due to the growing response to introduce actual molds of women's vulvas. Currently, Fleshlight Masturbators feature seven models which include: Kat Young, Sandee Westgate, Brooke Skye, Raven Riley, Vanilla Deville and Puma Swede.
The Fleshlight Masturbator is described in "Sex Toys that Changed the World," an article published by About.com, as having "raised the bar exponentially" for sex toys made for men. The Toronto Star called it a "top pick" which was "both versatile and fun".
In a humorous 2002 essay describing a Fleshlight test drive, on-line sex journal Nerve.com reviewer Joe Maynard called the Fleshlight Masturbator the "ultimate faux vagina." He noted problems with lubricant leakage, but admitted that the Fleshlight "feels like getting a blow job - only no teeth."
Blake Shefford's 2004 book The Many Joys of Sex Toys includes a guide to using the Fleshlight Masturbator. Shefford suggests a number of techniques, including clamping the Fleshlight to a desk in order to free the hands, or adding extra stimulation by simultaneously using a butt plug, cock ring or nipple clamps. According to Shefford, "it takes a few sessions with the Fleshlight to appreciate it."
Other writers have pointed to shortcomings with theFleshlight Masturbator. In their Sex Toy book, writers Em & Lo include an entry for Fleshlight but indicate that some may find the casing "heavy, unwieldy and too wide", noting that "you can't squeeze the casing to increase the pressure around your dick," but noting that one could remove the flesh-like insert from the case and apply pressure manually. Another review called the Fleshlight the "king of boy toys," but also stated that it took a while to get used to cleaning it.
