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!
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.
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.
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.
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:

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.

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."
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.
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.
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?
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.

Dillion Harper's Crush Fleshlight offers a great balance of realism and gentle stimulation that's ideal for beginners. Crush is a versatile sleeve with a 'mild to wild' personality and wonderfully varied textures that will bring you to your knees.
The Riley Reid Utopia Fleshlight blends textured walls with size-changing canals and tighter nodes to push through. If you like a soft, smooth sleeve with interesting variety, Utopia will knock your socks off.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
