How To Make A DIY Fleshlight Drying Rack In 7 Easy Steps
This DIY drying rack made from inexpensive PVC can significantly shorten Fleshlight drying times. Even better, it can also be used as a convenient hanging storage stand.

Want to stop wasting hours—or even days—as you wait for the inside of your Fleshlight to dry? The trick is to hang sleeves vertically so that gravity pulls the water droplets and moisture down through the sleeve.
Using this simple PVC drying rack dries freshly washed Fleshlight sleeves much faster than laying it on a towel like I used to do.
In this step-by-step tutorial, I’ll teach you how to make a drying rack for your own Fleshlights that you can build in about an hour.
Ready to get started? Let's go!
Step 1: Gather your tools and materials
Put all your supplies on a placemat or tray to keep them tidy and organized while you work.
1/2-inch PVC pipe is the smallest diameter available - 10 feet costs about $2 - but it's more than strong enough to support the weight of a few masturbation sleeves, according to manufacturers.
Here’s everything you’ll need:
Some 1/2-inch schedule-40 PVC pipe
8 x 1/2-inch 3-way tee elbow non-threaded PVC pipe fittings
Sharpie, pen or magic marker
Ratcheting PVC pipe cutter or hacksaw
If you decide to paint it, you’ll also need:
Steel wool or sand paper for prepping the PVC surface
Acetone (nail polish remover) for cleaning PVC after rouging up surface
Cloth rags or paper towels
When shopping for 3-way elbow fittings,make sure you buy non-threaded fittings like the one in the photo below.
Over the years, I've noticed that Home Depot and Lowe sometimes mix threaded and non-threaded fittings together on the shelf, so double-check each one individually before putting it in your cart.
Step 2: Measure and mark your cuts
Grab your tape measure or measuring tape, marker, and your PVC pipe, then mark the spots you need to cut.
In total, you'll be cutting 12 short lengths of pipe.
What to cut:
4 x 6" vertical legs
4 x 2" horizontal support rails
4 x 11" horizontal support rails
Wrong size? No problem
I designed this rack to hold up to four sleeves at a time since I like to have "orgies" every once in awhile. But if you want a smaller or larger drying rack, so adjust the length of the horizontal support rails:
Lay out your support rails and the corner fittings, then fit the pieces together. At this point, you should have a rectangle with four open holes sticking straight up.
As the saying goes, "PVC pipe is Legos for kinky people and hydroponic gardeners."
Step 5: Add the vertical legs
Now insert your 6-inch “vertical legs” of pipe into the holes in the bottom frame.
At this point, it kind of looks like an upside-down table.
Step 6: Assemble the top
Loosely fit together the remaining top pieces until the final pipe is connected.
Place the top frame over the legs and press them together. Give the corner joints a light squeeze to make sure everything fits together properly and seems stable.
Step 7: Check your work
Voila! You just built yourself fully-functional Fleshlight drying rack.
Grab a sleeve and drop it into the top to see how if it hangs as expected.
Not bad for about an hour of work, huh?
Step 8: Paint it (optional)
Since I had a can of glossy purple Rust-Oleum laying around collecting dust, I figured it was a good time to use it up.
Painting isn't necessary, but it gives it a nice finished look.
After the paint dried, I brought it inside and re-tested it to see how it would hold up my Flight Pilot sleeve, which has a smaller orifice than a regular size FL Girl.
I must say, this looks pretty nice!
Wet Fleshlights don't "air dry" very well if you place them on their sides because the moisture inside the texture gets trapped and can't escape. But if you hang them up vertically, they drip-dry in a few hours or less.
If you like DIY projects like this one--or you just hate wasting time--the hour you spend making this will repay you with peace of mind.
