What's a Fleshlight and how do you use one?


Curious about fleshlights? No, they aren't flashlights. And no, they aren't lights at all. A fleshlight is actually a masturbation device for men. Keep reading to learn all about fleshlights and how you can use one tonight.

What is a fleshlight?

A fleshlight is a male masturbation device that's designed to help men pleasure themselves. It looks like a flashlight, but it has a hole where the penis goes. There are four parts to a fleshlight: a sturdy plastic case shaped like a flashlight, an end cap to control suction, a lid to close the fleshlight when you're not using it (and to discreetly keep it looking like a normal everyday flashlight) and the insert itself.

The fleshlight got its name because the material used in the inner sleeve is flesh-like, and the entire device is designed to look like an oversized flashlight. The inner sleeve itself is available to look like a vagina, anus, butt, mouth or a slot-shaped orifice. Yes, that means users can choose to "receive" anal sex, vaginal sex or a blow job. Users can also choose from a variety of colors, internal textures and ribbing styles.

How did the fleshlight come about?

In the late 1990s, an ex-cop in Los Angeles named Steve Shubin got his wife pregnant with twins. Great news, right? Yes, except that the married couple were advised by doctors not to have sex until the babies were born because both were over 40 at the time. Steve couldn't stand not getting any action for that long, so he took matters into his own hands -- literally. After nailing down the material that best imitates the feel of a vagina, he created the fleshlight as his own homemade sex toy.

Since then, the fleshlight has become insanely popular. There's even a line of interactive fleshlights that use the bodies of famous porn stars as the models for the vaginas! Today, the fleshlight is the top-selling male masturbation tool.  

How do you use a fleshlight?

Because a fleshlight is a sex toy used to replicate a vagina, you simply stick your penis into it and enjoy. It's intended to stimulate the penis into an orgasm. Just like a woman uses a dildo or vibrator to get herself off, a man uses a fleshlight to do the same.

But before you use your fleshlight, it's a good idea to warm it first so that all of the sensations will be extremely realistic and enjoyable. To warm it, simply remove the fleshlight sleeve from its case and run warm water through it for at least five minutes. Another way to heat the sleeve is to submerge it in a bowl of heated water for the same amount of time. After five minutes, remove the sleeve from the water and gently shake it dry. Place the sleeve back in its fleshlight case and enjoy!
