Butterfly was my first Fleshlight, but not my first toy. Before Butterfly I owned a couple onaholes by N.P.G.
They ended up being very difficult to clean and they were a lot tighter than I expected, they all ripped after only a few uses. Once the last one ripped I decided to try out Fleshlight in hopes of them being more durable.

December 24th, 2022 (Ethereal Texture)
Before my first Fleshlight I owned several onaholes made by NPG. Every single one ended up ripping very quickly, and they were always difficult to clean because the hole doesn’t go all the way through them. These complaints led me to looking into Fleshlights even though they are more on the expensive side. Fleshlights are much easier to clean, and are definitely more durable, but they are lacking in the variation department a bit. Onaholes tend to be filled with much more organic, asymmetric, and chaotic textures. ILF’s products don’t really offer such a thing, they mostly focus on geometry and clearly defined patterns. Compared to other Fleshlights, Ethereal is a bit out of the ordinary. This sleeve is nowhere near as chaotic as onaholes tend to be, but the asymmetry of the front half, and the length of the pattern in the middle remind me a lot about the sensations I left behind. I try to compare the Fleshlights I review to one another, but in this review I think it makes sense to also compare Ethereal to onaholes I’ve owned, because there just aren’t any other Fleshlights like how Ethereal is, so Apologies up front for the apples to oranges comparisons I’m about to make.
Eliza’s labia and clit are very tactile and pleasing. They have more defined wrinkles and folds than any of the other sleeves I own, rubbing around on them feels great. I have similar criticisms for these lips as I had with Butterfly though, I would have found them much more satisfying to play with if they were a little less welded on. This sleeve I think has less of a reason to be welded though, Eliza’s labia are not as massive as Dominika’s, so I think letting them sway freely would probably be less detrimental to the durability of the sleeve. Only other criticism I have is the odd coin slot shape that the lips make, it looks too straight, but this is a very small complaint, it’s not very noticeable when the sleeve is in the case.
Section A: (asymmetric curve)
This section is the section I was most looking forward to. I thought it was going to bring back some of the sensations that I parted ways with when I threw my torn up onaholes away. For the most part Ethereal didn’t disappoint, but it could have been better designed. The obstruction of the curved part is a bit too close to the orifice I think, combining this with the softness of the material causes the taint side of the orifice to bow away from the case upon penetration, and this bowing alleviates a lot of the pressure that would have otherwise pressed up against the shaft of the user. The section winds up feeling less noticeable as a result, it is still noticeable enough to make cowgirl vs reverse cowgirl feel different, but it isn’t as noticeable as it is in some of the onaholes I’ve experienced. You can counteract the bowing to a degree by angling the case while you fuck it. Tilting the case toward your belly when the clit is facing away from you and away when the clit is facing toward you. It doesn’t completely solve the issue but it’s also entertaining to try all sorts of different angles.
Section B: (O ring)
This section provides a pop feel like how a lotus node would, but it’s a bit more subtle. It mostly blends in with the next section.
Section C: (triple helixey spirally bit)
This is like two textures layered on top of each other. The outer wall has a spiral, or rifling to it, then poking out from the walls 5 times, in a triangular fashion, are O rings like in the previous section, except they are angled and woven into one another sort of like a triple helix pattern. This layering of textures gives a lot of bumps and nudges and pops as you go through. It’s a pretty long section, about 3 inches, and it doesn’t repeat, so it approaches the organic chaotic feeling of an onahole, but in a geometric and beautiful, non-chaotic way.
Section D: (ridged hourglass)
I have not tried this section, I don’t reach and in all honesty I’m not interested in even trying it, it looks very boring compared to the rest of the sleeve.
This sleeve is a pretty bumpy ride the first few times. Once she gets broken into a bit though things become a lot more enjoyable. The textures are not very intense, but they are very stimulating, it’s a lot of medium to large sized textures, which is not that common in Fleshlights. Before I was hesitant to purchase large textured sleeves like this one, or Ana Foxxx’ Silk, but I think Eliza Ibarra’s Ethereal warmed me up to the concept. I am a little let down by the first section, but for the most part Ethereal provides what I had hoped it would. This sleeve is pretty unique, it could be better, but as it is, I recommend it to anyone that wants something different.
December 16th, 2022 (Heavenly Texture)
Like how my previous sleeve, Destroya, was focused on being intense, I decided to try another sleeve that focused on a specific sensation, this time tightness. I was browsing the textures and Heavenly caught my eye. Heavenly looks kind of reminiscent of Eden, but tighter. Like Eden I was pretty sure Heavenly was going to also be more on the mild side, which is what I was looking for. I could have just gone with the original “Super Tight” sleeve, but I wanted enough variety to not be boring, and I think Heavenly fits this criterion perfectly.
Straight and narrow. The lips are subtle, It is a pretty accurate replica of Jessica Drake, but it looks a little more “touched up” than the orifices on the other sleeves I own. It has a very similar pop into place feel as Eden. Very satisfying. It’s almost like a lotus node sort of a feel, and a tiny bit deeper in the sleeve on Heavenly than it is on Eden, which is better because it makes it not as easy to lose registration with the orifice while repeatedly poking in and out.
Section A: (ring of ovals)
I don’t really notice the texture of this section a whole lot, but I’m very glad this section is present. It’s what causes the lotus node sort of feel when penetrating the orifice.
Section B: (Super Tight)
An inch of smooth tightness, the same tightness as the “Super Tight” sleeve. This is not the tightest that Fleshlight sleeves can be, but I think it’s the tightest I would want to go. I’m still nervous about tearing, and it is a very firm grip. Feels like I might get friction burns in this section sometimes if the lube starts to dry out.
Section C: (Forbidden swirl)
This section is a texture from another tight sleeve called Forbidden. Reviews I read describe this section as a gentle spiral, but endoscope videos look like it’s more of a gentle curved zigzag. It is a little less tight than the previous section and the texture difference is barely noticeable. I can’t feel a texture change at all, it’s more like a subtle pressure change and a slight increase in resistance. This section and the previous one probably blend together because of the softness of the super skin material.
Section D: (lotus node)
This lotus node feels different from the lotus node in the center of Eden. It feels more like the sensation when initially penetrating both this sleeve and Eden. I spent a while looking at different cut away images of various textures and did alternating flights of Heavenly and Eden to try to pinpoint the reason for the difference. I think there are two main types of lotus node, the original variety that comes from the original Lotus sleeve, and what I will call the garden variety, which comes from the Lotus Garden sleeve. I believe Eden has the garden variety and Heavenly has the original. The primary difference is the feel when the glans penetrates through the back end of the node. The garden variety has a very noticeable pop feel but in the original this pop is less abrupt. Both are great, but I think I prefer the garden variety a little more.
Section E: (ribs for your pleasure)
This section is identical to the last section of the revision of Destroya I own, and that’s interesting to me. In Destroya this texture felt pretty mild, I use it to cool down. Heavenly is the opposite though, due to how smooth and mild the rest of heavenly is. Maybe Destroya desensitizes you with the early chambers and Heavenly sort of does the opposite. Whatever the reason, this section surprised me, more enjoyable than I imagined.
Section F: (interleaved cones)
I’m not quite long enough to reach past the first row of cones in this final section, but I tried it a few times during caseless flights and it is the most intense section of the sleeve. It feels like a slightly more intense version of the STU texture. If only I was half of an inch longer, this is the first final section of a sleeve that I legitimately feel like I’m missing out on.
This sleeve is more on the mild side, as I had anticipated. It’s tighter and more varied than Eden, It would have surpassed Eden if it didn’t take so long to dry out. It’s as though it is incapable of drying out unless you hang it upright for three days. This sleeve has such a big drying issue that I purchased a 3rd party fan accessory to help it dry out quicker. The suction is strong and most of it is very smooth. I thought it was going to be good for edging, and for most people it probably would be, but because of the sleeves I have it’s not the greatest. Most of my other sleeves have their least intense sections deep in (given my length) and I’ve sort of acquired muscle memory to do deep slow grinding motions or deep short thrusts to cool off from the more intense sections, but in Heavenly it’s reversed, so I end up accidentally plunging into the more intense sections and prematurely concluding.
December 9th, 2022 (Destroya Texture)
I love the facial expressions Stoya makes in her videos, and I kind of wanted her FLG lady sleeve ever since I began looking into Fleshlights as a potential purchase, but I was unsure if I’d be able to handle the texture. A ton of the reviews said it was really intense, some said it was almost painful, and since I’m uncut this sounded creepy. My first sleeve that I ended up going with, Butterfly, has a section in it that looks pretty much like a smaller version of the first toothy section of Destroya. I enjoyed that section a lot, so that fed into my curiosity. Every time I penetrated into that tiny tooth ball in Butterfly I was convinced a little bit more. Eventually I caved into the temptation and decided I should give Destroya a try.
the opening is a lot tighter than I thought it would be, I can poke my index finger into it to the second knuckle and the grip of its lips is enough to allow me to pick the whole thing up case and all, without bending my finger. The labia and surrounding fleshy bits (pubic mound, perineum, etc.) have a sort of sloped downward shape, where it is meaty in the pubic/clitoral side, and slims down as you go toward the back end. The labia are kind of cup shaped, and that makes it easy to line up and push yourself in.
Section A: (tight with sparse tiny bumps)
The texture is a bit too small I think. It looks and feels almost unintentional, This section is too tight to have such a subtle texture. Maybe my Destroya is defective, I looked into it before writing this review and the bumps look a lot smaller than they do in the cut away images. Whatever the reason may be, this section ends up feeling like an extension of the 2-3cm intermediary blend area between the orifice and the start of the textured sections. It is nice and tight though, which makes initial penetration pleasing.
Section B: (large ball of teeth)
This is the section that there is a smaller version of in Butterfly. They both have three rows of teeth circling around a ball shape, the main difference between the ball in Butterfly and Destroya's is that her ball is a lot wider. I think the increased wideness causes this section to be far more intense in Destroya. I wasn’t expecting it to make too much of a difference but it really does, instead of feeling like a bunch of tiny tongues liking you it feels more pungent, for lack of a better word. It’s not really a sharp feeling, because the material is very soft and it easily gives way with pressure, but it is more acute, the contact points on the glans are more highly localized. It’s a stronger, more intense feeling, but it doesn’t have a lot of heft to it. Very shallow thrusts in this section is crazy intense on the glans, and the tight canal in the back of it works as a nice speed bump that helps keep your bearings.
Section C: (chamber with interleaved fangs)
This was the section I was the most nervous about, it looks very intimidating. In reality though it ends up feeling like a slightly less intense version of the previous section. This is maybe because the fangs are longer, so they are able to flex around more freely. The pungence that I tried describing in the previous section is very much present in this section as well. And it also isn’t a very hefty feeling. The lack of heft makes this sleeve very unique. Like the previous section, this section is sort of capped off, this time with a single ring of the STU styled bumps.
Section D: (ribs for your pleasure)
This final section is a lot longer than a lot of the other final sections I’ve experienced, and it’s pretty plain compared to the rest of the sleeve. Destroya is one of the older textures, and it seems to have gone through several revisions over the years. Some of the cutaways make it look like it narrows pretty quickly in this section, and I was hoping to have mine do that. It does not. I bought mine in October of 2022, and the current revision is almost the same diameter all the way through. So this section is pretty bland, but it does have its benefits, it’s an excellent section to do shallow thrusts in, to give yourself some time to cool down from the intensity of the two previous sections.
Not as intense as people make it out to be, maybe the different revisions of this sleeve made it become more tame. I am relieved to say that I don’t think Destroya is anywhere near painful under normal use cases. However, it becomes incredibly intense when you bust a nut, give your self a few moments for the sensitivity to fade, and then go back to thrusting. After the second nut is where the intensity starts getting to be too much to handle. Stoya’s Destroya is very intense but for the most part isn’t very tight, which I think makes it the opposite of Janice’ Eden, the sleeve I got right before this one. The contrast is fantastic to have access to. If you already have a sleeve that is smooth and mild then I recommend getting Destroya to spice things up, but I do not recommend this if it’s going to be your first, unless you suffer from DGS. The lack of what I call heft in my opinion makes it not a good representative for Fleshlights as a whole.
December 8th, 2022 (Eden Texture)
I chose to purchase Eden as my third sleeve for similar reasons that led me to my first. I was on an exploratory journey, more directed this time though. The mission of was to understand some more buzz words, primarily “lotus node”, and exactly what people meant by “mild”. I had also heard great things about the STU, but wasn’t convinced enough to buy a sleeve dedicated to one texture. I figured Eden was a pretty safe buy, since the first two sections looked pretty familiar. I knew I would enjoy the goosebumps at the start because of my first sleeve, and I figured the section after that would probably feel sort of similar to a section in my second sleeve. So if I didn’t like “lotus nodes” then I would still enjoy at least 50% of of what Eden has to offer.
This is the daintiest Fleshlight I’ve ever seen in person, very cute. It looks delicate and when you insert yourself in it makes a satisfying popping into place type of sensation, like your glans has just clicked into a socket that was designed to house it. It feels great to just pop in and out over and over again.
Section A: (goosebumps)
This section was a safe bet for me, I had experienced a very similar texture before in Dominika’s Butterfly and it feels just as good here. These bumps are very small, so instead of feeling each individual one, the sensations kind of blend together forming a gentle caressing feel. Having this section so close to the orifice makes it very tempting to do shallow thrusts, popping in and out of the orifice while sliding back and forth over this inch and a half of goosebumps.
Section B: (the cylinder made of boxy shapes)
I thought this section looked pretty reminiscent to the second section in Elsa’s Tasty, which was my favorite section from her, and I wasn’t let down. It is pretty similar, but not as intense. It’s the very close to gentle caress of the goosebumps that came before, and if you thrust too quick you might not notice the change in texture. The first couple flights were a bit less gentle in this section though. It felt like three abrupt pop into place sensations going in and out of this section. And not the pleasurable kind of pops as the orifice. But with additional uses the material must have become more pliable, and now it’s nice, gentle, and a lot more inviting.
Section C: (lotus node)
One of the main reasons I bought Eden was my curiosity about this section. I read so many reviews about how awesome lotus nodes were, and I wanted to try one out for myself. Now I know what all the fuss is about, they are versatile and feel great. I found two things I love doing with the lotus node. When you thrust slow it feels very similar to that popping sensation I tried to explain about the orifice. The pop happens as your glans pushes through the tight section of the node. As it peeks out into the other side the node slips off the back of your head and grasps you around the neck. If you go a bit deeper and thrust a little more quickly the lotus node provides an amazing milking feeling across your shaft.
Section D: (cylinders of alternating tightness)
I’m not really sure how I feel about this section. Looking at the image of the texture, I thought it was going to feel like a bunch of mini lotus nodes all in a row, but it doesn’t, maybe because the tighter sections aren’t thick enough. Instead this section kind of feels a little like section B, but it’s inferior, doesn’t have quite the same bubbly feeling. I think I would have been much more satisfied if this section was one more lotus node instead, or maybe something with a more energetic texture.
Section E: (STU texture)
I heard great things about the STU sleeve in regards to edging, and this last section of Eden is identical to the STU texture. The STU sleeve is one of the older textures though, and the textures have gotten a lot more intricate than how they were back then, so I saw this as a good way to preview STU and see if I would want an entire sleeve full of it. Even though this last section is just beyond my reach when the sleeve is in the case, you can take the sleeve out of the case to experience the ones that go over your head. I am glad I didn’t buy the STU. This texture is decent, but it’s kind of boring, having an entire sleeve full of this single texture is not worth the money, but in a sleeve like Eden it seems like a moderately intense way to round out the overall mildness.
This is a more mild sleeve, and I think it taught me what people mean when they say mild. They aren’t saying that it has less texture, or that you won’t feel it as much, it’s more saying that the textures vary less and the overall flight is a less on the chaotic side, instead trending toward gentleness and gliding sensations. The lotus node in the middle is a nice breakup in the monotony, it livens everything up and the mildness surrounding it makes it stand out. This sleeve is great for edging and taking your time, compare to my other favorite edging sleeve, Tasty, this one is more easy to control, but the lower intensity makes it nearly impossible to chain together orgasms, So I suggest to edge a bit longer instead. The mildness is nice, but I'm not quite as satisfied as I would like to be, there isn't quite enough variation in the way the textures feel. Still a fantastic choice though, and if you want something with less variety I can recommend with confidence.
December 7th, 2022 (Tasty Texture)
Satisfied with my first Fleshlight, I felt like I had a better understanding of the descriptions people use when talking about textures. I decided I wanted to try something a bit more focused. I was hunting for something a bit tighter and more intense than my first sleeve. At the time I read a lot of reviews (I was unaware of fleshassist at this point) and Elsa's Tasty seemed like the perfect match to satisfy my curiosities.
I don't know why, but I underestimated the scale of the lips on this sleeve tremendously. Variety is the spice of life and Elsa's lips are very unique and cute, I wasn't upset at all, it was a welcome surprise for me. They stick out about 1cm and aren't spread out like how some of the other big lipped orifices are. For me this was fantastic! In my previous review I mentioned how I was a bit bummed by Butterfly’s orifice. In my case the underestimation of scale led to pleasant happenstance; Tasty filled the void that Butterfly left me with. If you aren’t a fan of big meaty labia then this orifice is probably not going to do it for you. If you like meat curtains though, I highly recommend getting your hands on these, they aren't that floppy, but they are in a great orientation.
Section A: (parallel rings)
This was rough the first few flights. It felt like 4 or 5 speed bumps on my glans. After a while though they became more flexible and now it’s a lot less noticeable.
Section B: (tight ripply ramps and nubs)
This section is amazing. Some of the reviews I read said this section was almost too intense, and that got me a bit worried since I’m not circumcised, and therefore probably more sensitive. The worries were unwarranted though, the tightness or this section mutes the intensity just enough to result in a firm and bubbly wavy sensation. This is pretty intense, and I probably wouldn’t be able to last long at all if the entire sleeve was like this section.
Section C: (spirally hourglass shape)
I view this section like a pit stop. It’s significantly less intense than the previous section. This section is a gentle rubbing massage. One of my favorite things to do with Tasty is to go at it in section B until I’m about to nut, and then slide into this section to simmer down a while and regain my composure. Repeating this process makes for an incredible edging session, but it can be a little tricky sometimes. This section is still pretty strong, and the tight section in the middle of the hourglass has a tendency to catch me off guard if I’ve been edging for a while, causing me to bust sooner than I would have liked.
Section D: (rows of orbs)
I’m not quite long enough to reach any meaningful distance into this final section, but I tried it out sans case a couple of times for this review. There isn’t much to report about them, they are pleasurable, of course, but they aren’t worth the extra mess that comes with caseless flights. The reviews I read gave this impression, but wanted to see for myself and I can confirm.
Many of the reviews I read stated that this sleeve only has moderate suction. I strongly disagree, but I’m not sure if my experiences are because my sleeve was a mistake or not. The beefy lips weren’t the only thing that surprised me, I was also surprised with the overall bulk of the Tasty sleeve I received. The fins that sleeves usually have is not normal on mine, it has 3 cylinders around the wider part like the cylinders on the Fleshlight Vibro sleeves, except they are solid super skin, no hole for the vibrators to go into. This makes it difficult to fit the sleeve into the case, and it could maybe cause the first two sections to be tighter than intended. Whatever the reason, the suction effect on this sleeve is far stronger than the other sleeves I own. One time I got a little too experimental and decided to try using my Tasty with the end cap all the way closed, this was a horrible idea. There was far too much suction, it felt great in the moment, but after the deed was done my nuts were sore for nearly an hour. Proceed with caution if your Tasty has the big Vibro cylinders like mine does.
The orifice is nice and meaty and fun to slap around with your head before plunging in. The 2nd and 3rd sections of this sleeve are a perfect duo. They will tag team your member like an orgasmic variation of good cop, bad cop. Top tier sleeve, will probably always be one of my favorites.
December 6th, 2022 (Butterfly Texture)
Butterfly was my first Fleshlight. I had bad experiences in the past with toys, and I tried to put a lot of thought into which sleeve I would choose. I wanted a sleeve that had a great orifice that wouldn’t rip, and that’s about all I knew. I didn’t know how tight “tight” was or how loose “loose” was. I didn’t know how the material felt, so it was hard to imagine the textures, or what “intense” meant. With a lot of questions and no real way of knowing unless I gave one a go, I decided to look for a sleeve that has a small taste of several flavors. I contemplated for a week, and at the end I chose Butterfly.
I’m a long time fan of Dominika, she has one of my favorite sets of labia, and this sleeve does an excellent job mimicking their form, but unfortunately not their action. I wish they weren't welded on so much in the back, Dominika's lips flop around brilliantly in her videos, and I was really hoping that this sleeve would do the same. Even though I was a bit bummed, I can see why they probably decided to strap them down how they did. Allowing them to be free probably would have reduced the durability of this sleeve, so I don’t mind I guess, but it’s an important thing to be aware of. If you were looking forward to meaty lips embracing your shaft that’s not going to happen.
Section A: (3 rows of diagonal lines)
I read this section described as a push/pull effect, I wasn’t sure what that meant and to be honest I’m still not sure, it’s more like a massaging or kneading sensation. This section looks a bit wider, and I thought this early depth was a good place to have a wide section, right up front near the orifice. My logic being that a wider opening would minimize the risk of the orifice tearing. I already had multiple (non-Fleshlight) toys tear on me and I really wanted to avoid any chance of it happening again. (1st flight was 2/10/2020, no tear yet) If this section looks too wide for you don’t worry, it’s not at all as loose as I was expecting it to be. To give you a sense of scale, when I stick my index finger into this section the tops of the lines just barely touch my finger all the way around. Looks are deceiving, it’s actually pleasantly snug.
Section B: (tighter section made out of goosebumps)
This is the section I saw as my taste of what tightness feels like. A nice entry level introduction to the concept of “tight” in the world of Fleshlights. This section is awesome for small thrusts, rubbing your glans back and forth on the tiny bumps. The bumps don’t really feel all that bumpy, probably because of how small they are. The tightness of this section kind of forces your cock to smoosh the bumps flat, making them kind of blur together. It feels more like an organic caressing sensation. This feeling combined with the tightness here is great for edging.
Section C: (little ball of teeth sandwiched between cavities)
These teeth are a little bite of what “intensity” means. I imagined during my contemplation that the little cavities were probably kind of like pseudo “lotus nodes”, but I didn’t really know what that word meant. And the ball of teeth in the middle resembled a ball I saw in Stoya’s Destroya sleeve, which I read was very intense. I was really nervous about the intensity of this section, but I figured since it was back in there pretty far, if it was too intense for me I could just not insert myself that deep and I’d still be able to enjoy the previous chambers. Kind of like the first section, this section can be a bit deceiving visually. The material is much softer than I was expecting it to be, these teeth don’t feel like teeth at all, feels like getting licked by the tips of a dozen tongues. It is intense, but not in any sort of intimidating way, it’s a rush of sensation when you plunge into it. The cavities that I thought were going to maybe be kind of like lotus nodes aren’t at all. They are almost not noticeable, but the rings in the deep cavity have a nice feel to them.
Section D: (the cylinder made of cylinders)
I’m not quite long enough to reach any meaningful distance into this final section, and at the time of deciding my purchase it never crossed my mind that you could try the sections too deep for you by having a Flight outside of the case. So in my contemplation I just kind of ruled this section out. However, I have given it a few goes, and it is pretty pleasant, I don’t think it’s worth the effort of going at it without a case. If you’ve got the length to get in this section though you won’t be disappointed, but you also probably are going to spend more of your time in the more unique and varied sections.
Butterfly is a great introductory sleeve. I learned some lessons and I would like to share these with any noob whose reading this:
- Loose is not a bad thing, very loose is still pretty snug.
- Tightness seems to be inversely proportional to the ability to feel texture.
- Sleeve appearances can be deceiving, the material is very soft.
Over all I was overwhelmingly satisfied with Butterfly. This sleeve is orders of magnitude better than the onaholes I had in the past, and It’s still one of my favorite sleeves, in my opinion highly underrated and not recommended nearly enough.
