Overall I love my Fleshlight Classic. Although it’s a difficult love. A love hate relationship if you will.
While I can take the Fleshlight Classic in my hand fairly easily, it isn’t exactly ergonomic. The black case seems very big and it doesn’t sit as nicely as I would have hoped in my hand. My hands are an average to large size for a guy. Men with smaller hands or women might want to go for Fleshlight’s smaller GO or Flight models.

It feels really solid and durable. The plastic case won’t break easily that’s for sure. You also can’t squeeze the sides, so you can’t apply more pressure that way when you use it. Personally I like that though.
The superskin material of the mini-lotus sleeve feels very nice. It’s very smooth, soft and flexible. I was surprised. Eve also found the material fascinatingly pleasant.
On to appearance… I’m sorry but it is giant flashlight with a vagina at the end. Not an elegant description but that is literally the look they went for. It’s not that bad but to me it doesn’t look sexy. I would prefer something classier and more abstract.
The experience of having a Fleshlight with the mini-lotus sleeve around your penis feels far closer to reality than with a hand around your penis. It gives the impression of being inside a vagina but there is still a difference. The chambers provided by the mini-lotus as I push through it provide me with extra suction and stimulation. It’s subtle but it’s a little like entering several vaginas one after the other as I push forward. Or like being sucked by several mouths at the same time. Even though this sensation is subtle the affect feels amazing.
I was sat upright when I used the Fleshlight for the first time. It felt awkward but nice. Nice because of the new sensations but awkward because of the size of the Fleshlight in my hand. It’s cumbersome. The lube they sent also took me out of the moment. I thought Fleshlube Water would be a standard non-stimulating lube but actually it heats the skin. This shocked me and I don’t personally enjoy the heat sensation. The heat eventually calms down though. Having an orgasm in the Fleshlight was shockingly good. However I was in two minds because of the two problems I mentioned.
After several uses, I got used to the Fleshlube and the act of using the Fleshlight itself. This led to more enjoyment and now I prefer the feeling of masturbating with a Fleshlight than using my hand. I eventually found lying on a bed is more comfortable than what I was originally doing (sitting upright).
If you haven’t ever used a masterbator before, you may not have experienced an orgasm like this. As I explode, I feel like the superskin material of the sleeve hugs my penis. The notches and grooves inside the mini-lotus move over the shaft and head of my penis. Finding the perfect place to rest as I reach the point of no return. It feels great just after coming because it feels like it was designed specifically for my penis. The material is soft and gentle so it ensures I don’t become over-stimulated just after I orgasm. As long as you use enough lube, you won’t have any problems.
How does it compare? Just like using a hand feels different to being inside a vagina or mouth, a Fleshlight feels different again. From my point of view the mini-lotus sleeve gives incredibly powerful orgasms. More powerful than if I just use my own hand. Possibly one of the most powerful I can achieve to date on my own during solo masturbation. The Cobra Libra II gives me a slightly stronger orgasm, however it is also far more expensive. The Fleshlight orgasm is one of the strongest I can have without Eve though. Overall though, the orgasm I have inside my Fleshlight is something I won’t be getting bored of!
Adam was a bit reluctant to have me use the Fleshlight in partner play, he was wanted to get a version with a smaller handle for me tu use because he was pretty sure the current handle would too big for my hand and thus uncomfortable for me to use on him. I was still pretty curious about it for a long time, and I ended taking things into my own hands and one day that we were making out I decided to use it on him. Turns out it was way more pleasant for me than both expected it. The handle, while being indeed a bit too big to be completely comfortable, is still easier to use than I thought. The texture of the sleeves is so incredibly smooth that I was almost jealous. So after putting enough lube on both Adam’s penis and inside the Fleshlight ( and girls don’t be skimpy with lube, cause it could be quite painful for your man if the inside is not lubricated enough ), I slowly pushed it on him. It was a surprise turn-on for me, there’s a real sensuality about the sight of Adam’s penis being swallowed by that smooth pink flesh. I guess it has a lot to do with the voyeur aspect of it, combined with the slow motion of my wrist and the ecstasy I could read on Adam’s face. It made for quite an erotic experience.
I still prefer to use the Pulse on Adam, because I can have more interaction with him, with my tongue essentially. Also the in-and-out motion comes with some sort of squishy noise that can be slightly bothersome, and after awhile it becomes a bit painful on my hand because of the width of the handle. I’m curious to try the Go Torque Ice Fleshlight which is smaller and see through. I’m sure that would be a LOT of fun 😉
The Fleshlight was the first sex toy I have owned for myself. Coupled with the fact that it is also cumbersome, I was hesitant to use it in partner play with Eve for some time. So hesitant, that I used two other male sex toys with her before this one (even though I acquired them later than the Fleshlight).
I was surprised to learn that in fact Eve loves using the Fleshlight on me. She loves watching it suck and slide around my penis. The visual stimulation of the pink vagina at the end of the Fleshlight turns out to be more of a turn-on for her than for me. She says that this isn’t usually a view of my penis she gets to see, so she finds it a real turn on. However it’s still more cumbersome than any other sex toy we use and I find this a little inconvenient.
The Fleshlight Classic is easy to clean but a pain in the ass to dry and repowder. Unfortunately this is the area where the Fleshlight loses lots of points. Lots and lots of points.
To clean the sleeve you run warm water through it and spray it with Fleshwash (Fleshlight’s cleaning solution). However you must leave the sleeve out to dry before putting it back inside the case. This has sometimes taken over two days for me. Using a hairdryer speeds this up. I kind of resent the fact that it takes so long to dry though.
The case isn’t easy to clean either. Mostly because the company chooses to emboss the Fleshlight logo down the side of the case. The corners and crevasses of the logo catch lube and dust easily on my black case. So it quickly looks ugly. Having the logo there also looks ugly, hopefully they’ll remove it or make it smaller some day.
The superskin material of the Fleshlight sleeves are body-safe yet porous. So if you don’t clean and dry them properly, they’ll start smelling and turning bad. This is an unfortunate side to the superskin material. Hopefully someday they’ll figure out a way to make a non-porous material to replace it.
The Fleshlight Classic is their longest standing product. While it could definitely be improved, it is still supported by a huge catalogue of other sleeves. To date, I have only tried the mini-lotus but I’m curious and excited to try out more. I can sense that each sleeve will provide me with a very different experience. This is great news for us guys. While we don’t have the huge range of sex toys women have, Fleshlight offers us a somewhat satisfactory solution. While women often have to buy separate sex toys for different physical experiences, we have the option with Fleshlights to upgrade what we already have. I really like this concept and it is one of the things that made me want to try a Fleshlight Classic in the first place.
I haven’t tried the Fleshlight GO yet although I think I’d prefer it. It’s a pity that the same choice of sleeves is not available for them.
- Very powerful orgasms
- A big turn on for Eve to use it on me
- Big catalogue of different sleeves for the classic model
- I feel like the price is fair
- The handle is too big and cumbersome
- The tough plastic case doesn't feel or look great
