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.

How to make a DIY Fleshlight drying rack from PVC pipe

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.

You probably have one or two of these items already.

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
  • Measuring tape
  • 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
  • Spray paint

Pro tip

When shopping for 3-way elbow fittings, make sure you buy non-threaded fittings like the one in the photo below.

Here's what non-threaded 3-way elbows look like. They connect the corners.

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.

Yellow measuring tape and hand marking where to cut
Sharpies are great for writing on PVC, but even a ball point pen would work in a pinch.

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:

  • 1 sleeve: 3.5" horizontal support rails
  • 2 sleeves: 6.5" horizontal support rails
  • 3 sleeves: 9.5" horizontal support rails

Step 3: Cut your PVC pipe

If you’re using a ratcheting PVC cutter, try to hold it at a steady 90 degree angle to make your cuts as perpendicular as possible.

Check to make sure your cut pieces are roughly approximate in length, but don’t worry if they're a little bit different. PVC is pretty forgiving.

Step 4: Assemble the bottom

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.

Bare PVC has a utilitarian look, which is fitting since it works perfectly.

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.

To avoid breathing paint fumes and making a mess inside the house, I did all the painting outside.

Painting isn't necessary, but it gives it a nice finished look.

Results

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!

Final thoughts

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.

  • Texture isn’t aggressive or super busy but still feels incredibly realistic
  • Equally good for quick lunch-break nuts and longer edging sessions

pros

  • Mild, realistic entrance feels more intense the deeper you go
  • Interesting variety is a ton of fun to thrust hard and fast into
  • Ridges and nubs stimulate gently while building you up to intense orgasms

Cons

  • Some girthy guys say those little bumpy nodes can feel too rough and intense

pros

  • Tight entryway opens into chamber of fangs
  • Lady and butt entries available
  • $10 cheaper than Stoya's version

Cons

  • Slower than average drying time
  • Must Build Your Own for complete Fleshlight with case

The Fleshlight Destroya texture is famous for being one of the most intense and stimulating sleeves, and it definitely lives up to its reputation. But brute force intensity is not its only shining quality. Expect to be enveloped by spikey fangs that massage your member into an orgasmic mess.

Best Blowjob Fleshlight - Turbo Thrust

Our Rating

pros

  • The Thrust orifice and texture provide a truly unique Fleshlight sensation
  • Two front rings provide soft, consistent pressure to your shaft
  • $10 cheaper than Fleshlight Girls

Cons

  • Blue Ice material becomes cloudy over time

The two leading rings of the Turbo Thrust Fleshlight simulate the feeling of lips and tongue during a blowjob. Each ring provides soft, consistent pressure on your shaft and a range of intensity as you thrust deeper inside the canal. Plus, the successively tightening spiked rings and the chamber of teeth that lay beyond them actually simulate the feeling of a sloppy wet blowjob. And they're only intensified by watching your cock fill up the canal. The Turbo Thrust is a must for every Fleshlight collector.

pros

  • Intense, stimulating texture works great for quickies
  • Entrance feels extremely tight when vibes used
  • Vagina and butt entries available
  • 3 bullet vibrators and 10 batteries included

Cons

  • Can be too stimulating for some guys

The Vibro Fleshlight is like the STU on steroids. The Vibro's special sleeve, called Touch, holds up to three battery-powered vibrators. The entire interior canal of the Touch sleeve is lined with cylindrical "fingers" that rub, nudge, and prod every part of the penis from the base to the tip, similar to the STU's sleeve design.

pros

  • Super stimulating round bumped chambers up front
  • Cool to watch yourself penetrate the toy
  • Both pussy and ass entries available

Cons

  • Clear Ice sleeves become cloudy over time

The Ice Fleshlight comes in both vagina and butt entries, but regardless of orifice, its legendary see-through Crystal texture offers a great combination of stimulation and variation. You get chambers lined with thick ribs, round bumps and rings of various sizes grip and rub your manhood, then open up to a nice gentle massage passage.The variation in textures means that you can get different sensations by focussing on different parts of the sleeve, so I find it pretty perfect for edging.

pros

  • Large, meaty labia slap your balls at full penetration
  • Wide caverns and large nodes offer high stimulation and low intensity
  • Looseness allows slow buildup and long, explosive orgasms

Cons

  • Guys who prize tightness above realism will find it lacking

Dominika's Butterfly Fleshlight provides amazing realism and orgasm quality with a large attractive vulva that you won't be able to look away from. The first chamber has a very open channel containing large alternating pill shaped nodes that allows for quite a lot of movement and stimulation. The second chamber gets a bit tighter as you squeeze through a narrow passage of textured bumps. The third chamber of soft pointed nubs surround your cock and massage it from all angles.

pros

  • Narrow ribbed chamber creates awesome suction effect
  • Milder anal texture great for edging
  • Quiet with fast cleaning and drying times

Cons

  • Longer than average "break-in" time

Eva Lovia's Spice Fleshlight is that rare anal sleeve that feels realistic without being overly intense or aggressive. The Spice texture features a narrow entry chamber followed by a larger open area with small nubs, then finally another narrow ribbed chamber. This design creates a gentle suction effect that sucks your cock deeper into the sleeve. The combination of low to mid-intensity, realism, and mild suction feel awesome and result in high orgasm quality.

pros

  • Brandi's tight butthole is extremely tight
  • Unique protruding cheeks tickle your undercarriage
  • Very lube efficient

Brandi Love's Shameless Fleshlight is an extremely tight anal sleeve with a one-of-a-kind penetration experience. Stretch out her tiny little hole and push into a narrow, nubbed chamber that gives way to layers of honeycomb ridges that ratchet up the pressure.

With your dick fully inserted, Brandi's protruding buttocks tickle your balls and tease your sensitive undercarriage.

Our Rating

Click for Price

pros

  • Woven texture in first chamber feels uniquely intense
  • Moderately tight sleeve allows you to feel every bump and rib

Cons

  • Intricate pattern needs a bit more cleanup time

The first chamber of the Nikki Benz Reign Fleshlight is lined with a thick criss-cross pattern that feels amazing as you slide in, especially on your head and frenelum. Push further and you can feel several rings pop and squeeze your tip, before you enter into an even tighter area. There is no relief with this sleeve, it is intense sensation after intense sensation.

Best Gentle Fleshlight - Ana Foxxx Silk

Our Rating

pros

  • A smooth, moderately tight and intense sleeve that's excellent for edging
  • Chocolate brown superskin material beautiful to look at
  • Great for slow buildups and big climaxes

Cons

  • Suction effect can be noisy

Ana Foxx's Silk Fleshlight is silky smooth, but not so smooth that it's boring. There are some mild variations in the texture but overall it's a medium tight and gentle ride that works well for longer and less intense edging sessions. The smaller channel with the little bumps feels delightful as you push into the third chamber, lightly teasing your tip, building excitement and the drive towards climax. This makes it a great texture to try at different stoke lengths and positions.

pros

  • Mini Utopia sleeve include Riley Reid's vagina and butt
  • Two orgasmic orifices for the price of one
  • Quick and easy cleanup

Cons

  • Noisier than larger Fleshlights
  • Not as good as the large size Riley Reid Fleshlight

Riley Reid's Quickshot packs a surprising variety of textures into the Quickshot's smaller open-ended stroker design. Push past Riley's lips into her snug pussy and you'll feel the grip of stimulating gears. On the opposite end, her asshole has a nice tightness to it with a blocky pattern that offer a nice resistance.
