They’ve got a hard exterior shell that resembles a heavy-duty flashlight, with a super soft, flesh-like sleeve that looks like an attractive vagina or butthole. In addition to their large assortment of different pussy and asshole sleeves, they also offer non-anatomical sleeves that don’t resemble the human body or make partners jealous.
Fleshlight Anatomy and Specs
The case is made from hard, thick plastic. It feels substantial and solid when you hold it, like the kind of material used in high-end power tools or football helmets.
The front cap protects the sleeve and helps disguise it.
The back cap adjusts the suction level.

Over 7 million Fleshlights have been sold since 1998, when they were first introduced.
According to their parent company Interactive Life Forms, they sell more than 80,000 Fleshlights a month, with a whopping 40% of sales going to repeat customers.
That’s a lot of satisfied Fleshlight owners!
They look and feel so good, you’ll wonder why so many guys still use their hands.
Older Fleshlights are priced at $69 and the newest ones are $79. They’re not exactly cheap, but lots of guys think they’re worth the cost because they feel so good.
Fleshlight sleeves feel soft, supple, and silky – like a real person's body. The sleeve material, called SuperSkin, is a non-toxic and phthalate-free blend of mineral oil and other body-safe ingredients.
First generation Fleshlight pink sleeves like this one are made of the same velvety smooth SuperSkin material as the newest Fleshlight Girls sleeves. Unlike the Fleshlight Girls orifices formed from porn actresses’ actual bodies, the original Fleshlight vagina and butt orifices are identical, since they were designed on computers rather than molded.
ILF, the manufacturer, is always designing and releasing new sleeve designs with unique textures, orifice styles, and colors. And since the sleeves are removable, you can switch out a sleeve whenever the mood strikes.
And when playtime is over, they’re easy to remove and clean.
In Flesh-speak, a texture is the design pattern of nubs, bumps, ridges, and caverns inside the sleeve. Since each Fleshlight texture has a different design, they produce different sensations of tightness, looseness, stimulation, and overall orgasmic intensity in use.
Stoya’s Destroya, Janice Griffiths’ Eden, and Riley Reid’s Utopia are three of the most popular sleeve textures in Fleshlight’s premium series, Fleshlight Girls.
Fleshlight offers over 50 different sleeve textures, but since they live inside the sleeve, you can’t see them unless you turn your sleeve inside out (which is a no-no according to the instructions)
Premium materials and construction
Fleshlights are made of premium materials and built like tanks.
In the last three years, my Fleshlight has survived four accidental drops without a scratch–or any cracking. The first time I dropped it, I was certain that I’d destroyed it. But when I picked it up to inspect the damage, the case was barely scratched. They’re heavy-duty toys made to take a beating. The floors in my house are all hard terrazzo and concrete—so not exactly forgiving.
But with proper care, a Fleshlight should last a lifetime.
Water-based lube required
As you'd expect, you need to lubricate your Fleshlight sleeve before using it. Make sure you only use water-based lubes, though, since oil-based, silicone, and hybrid lubes are incompatible with the material in Fleshlight sleeves.
If you’re a newbie, I’d avoid the Classic Pink Lady, Stamina Training Unit, and Destroya textures because they’re all either too boring or too tight for beginners.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I “weird” if I use a Fleshlight?
No, using a Fleshlight is not weird, abnormal, unusual or immoral. But the question is completely understandable. We live in a sex-negative society that sees sexuality as potentially dangerous. So if you’ve never used a sex toy, the idea can terrifying.
But masturbation isn’t unhealthy, evil or bad. Fleshlights aren't addictive and don't damage your physical or mental health. In fact, sex and masturbation are normal, natural parts of life, just like eating and drinking.
BYO stands for Build Your Own. and ordering a BYO Fleshlight means using the Build Your Own (BYO) tool on their website. The BYO tool allows you to customize the exact Fleshlight case color, entry style, and sleeve texture you want. However, it only works with the classic pink sleeves.
Where can I get free discreet shipping on a Fleshlight?
You get free discreet shipping when you buy a Fleshlight straight from the manufacturer, so its usually the best deal.
Each order is packed inside a plain cardboard box, so when your package arrives no one can see what’s inside.
The shipping label and shipping box do not describe what’s inside your package, and the shipping label only identifies the shipper as ILF, LLC—not Fleshlight, Inc. or anything like that.
Where’s the best place to buy a Fleshlight?
Buying directly from the manufacturer is usually the cheapest option since they offer frequent promotions with hefty discounts and free shipping.
