May 30th, 2019 (Texas Tornado Texture)
I bought Alexis' anal version on the strength of it's reviews and reputation as something of a semi-realistic anal sleeve. The Tornado has a simple texture of 3 large raised spirals running corkscrew-like up the whole length of the sleeve (much like a twister). Along these spirals are large flat divots cut into the surface, presumably to allow a little variation in texture. And that’s pretty much it.
The effect of this texture is supposed to be hugging or “pulled in” to the sleeve. And it did manage that to a degree, but it’s not hugely noticeable. The divots also provide stimulation which is quite subtle, so the overall sensation is fairly mild. However - as any FL connoisseur knows - mild can be just as wild, and the gentle milking effect of the Tornado is suited squarely to extended sessions, where savouring every stroke and sensation is the . My first penetration admittedly disappointed in how it differed from more intense expectations, but after a few “flights” it’s really growing on me now I’ve managed to tune into the soft, pillowy spirals gently hugging and milking my member. The orgasms aren’t overly intense but the ride is blissfully, toe-curlingly indulgent getting there now I know what to expect from the texture. Not a tornado of stimulation, but be patient with it and it will reward you.
A subtly stimulating, semi-realistic anal experience. The smooth texture and medium tightness may not be initially intense as it's name suggests, but it's a structure that rewards with great milking sensations during slower, more prolonged edging sessions.
May 29th, 2019 (Utopia Texture)
*NOTE: This review is for the first iteration of Utopia, as there has supposedly been a minor update to the inner texture. The nubs throughout the sleeve texture appear a lot more pronounced than they are in the actual sleeve I own. Not sure if the updated version features a more prominent texture, so maybe other reviews can attest to this.
My Fleshlight purchases are not normally based around the signature-girl, but - as a big Riley Reid fan - and the fact the texture seemed like a good medium-intensity sleeve, this was on my list.
The sleeve has a nice tight, ribbed opening to slide into before opening into the first main section, which is a chamber with small nubs around the inside. This then passes through a "choke point" of 4 large triangular nubs in the first 3-4 inches or so before passing into another canal with a spiral of tiny nubs running around the inside of a canal of similar diameter.
Overall the sleeve feels moderately tight and offers a great hugging sensation throughout. Whilst they may be small, the nubs inside both sections of the canal offer decent stimulation; certainly more than their size might suggest (the new cross-section image of Utopia appears to be a lot more pronounced in texture, but mine appears to be more subdued). The choke point also feels fantastic as it strikes the penis head moving back and forth through it. The combo of a subtle but consistently stimulating texture and some degree of tightness mean this sleeve strikes a great balance of stimulation with the capacity for edging. But note the word *capacity*, as this one feels so good from the start that it may be hard to resist Utopia bringing you to an early orgasm.
Some sleeves require some "tuning in to" to get the best out of them, but I took to this one right from first penetration. It's an easy one to enjoy. Whilst it doesn't look intense, it competes well with some of my more intense sleeves because of it's capacity to deliver both long and short sessions dependng on how I use it.
One for the fans of tighter "college chick" sleeves, Utopia is an enjoyable sleeve that offers enough medium-stimulation for a fun ride, but not so much it's over in a flash. A constant go-to in my collection.
May 24th, 2019 (Obsession-Bliss Texture)
Often listed in "most intense sleeve" recommendations, Jenna Haze's Obsession was aquired early on in my collecting, spurred on - as many FL rookies are - by the search for the "most intense" sleeve. The large array of spikey nubs certainly seemed to fit the bill. And although Obsession is intense, it wasn't in the way I'd expected. The expectation is that the rows of spikes running the length of the sleeve provide an abrasive feeling as they rub over the penis, but the effect is a little different. Due to the way the spikes are bunched and overlap each other, the effect is more like pushing through a crowd of spikes, where the resistance of pushing through a crowded orifice adds to the stimulation (and tightness) of the sleeve.
Whilst I enjoy the intense experience of Obsession's texture, it does take some getting used to. I found that short strokes - once the penis head is deep within the spiked area - is a really good technique, as you almost feel "gripped", not too dissimilar to a Chinese Finger Trap. So, yes. Tight. And I think "technique" is the watchword here, as it requires the owner to figure out the best rhythm ad stroke to get the best out of this one. I'd say this one is pretty thirsty in terms of lube due to the complex structure, as well as the fact more lubrication is required to reduce friction from such an OTT texture.
I actually find this sleeve less quick to get me to orgasm as - say - the Destroya. But once I get there, the climaxes are always relentless. Which kind of sums up the sleeve really: the ride takes some work and may be hit and miss, but the orgasms are delivered in spades.
Certainly a solid sleeve, and it's interesting texture delivers mind-altering orgasms. But newcomers may want to try other "intense" sleeves before this one which may offer a more rounded, consistent ride, from first penetration to final climax.
May 16th, 2019 (Lotus Garden Texture)
Size: 8” x 5.75”
After seeing some good reviews, looking for something different, and noticing it was now in the Collector's Corner for discontinuation, I decided the Lotus Garden would be a good one to try out.
The main draw was the unique design of the sleeve: a smooth, narrow canal with incremental spaces cut into it, creating equally-spaced segments / mini-chambers, each approximately 1 inch wide. The result is a series of tight rings to grip the penis in succession as each one is pushed through to reach the next. The texture is uniform all the way through, but the repetition is the point here; a texture seemingly designed to work up pleasure through vibration, from passing through chamber-to-chamber rather than focusing on each in isolation.
The pussy on this has quite a small labia, and fairly closed entrance, so looks to be a tight squeeze. A quick feel suggests the first ring/chamber of the texture starts soon - about 2 inches in - and continues, repeating throughout the sleeve. The canal is smooth with any discernible texture offered by the gaps between each chamber.
The slightly smaller and closed labia on this meant working a little lube around the entrance to guide in. Upon entering, the first thing you notice is how tight this thing is. Lubing up fairly well is a good call if you want to get inside without hassle. Hitting the first of the small chambers (about 2 inches in), you initially feel a slight pushing resistance, rather like passing through a tight rubber ring. And this then repeats with the next chamber until the end of the sleeve. Due to the size and placement of each chamber right next to each other, there's no "rest point" between any of them, so the sensation is less the squeeze of a tight-canal and more like the rubbing of passing through a slightly ribbed one. Going slow, the sensation is more noticeable as you "pop" through each ring. However, when performed with longer strokes, it gives a distinct "ribbed" sensation to the sleeve. Using the suction cap makes a difference with this sleeve, and definitely amplifies the feeling of each chamber.
I felt the overall sensation to be pretty intense, but it also kept me from working beyond this due to the tightness and grip of the narrow canal. I would use the word "friction" loosely as was not abrasive in any way, but a generous amount of lube was needed to prevent this from desensitising me out of the session. Oh. one thing to note before buying: this sleeve is NOISY!, so you might want to bear this in mind if that's an issue for you. In terms of lube, it isn't the greedy hog I expected it to be. It just requires a generous dose to keep the tight texture from being abrasive.
I found using a slower rhythm worked better with this sleeve. It added to the feeling of pushing through each chamber and allowed me to focus on the "popping" sensation they offered. I generally like going slow and deep to edge myself to climax, but that didn't feel too possible with this sleeve. However, the faster speed required to build up sensations meant this wasn't allowing much capacity to edge when I found myself closer to orgasm.
The Lotus Garden seemed to work better in short shifts, and was definitely at it's best when alternating alongside a looser, gentler sleeve for respite. Taking regular breaks with another sleeve and coming back to re-experience the Lotus Garden anew certainly seemed to offer up the most optimal experience of it's textures.
As expected, the climax Katsuni offered up was a veritable spasming, shuddering beautiful earthquake, each ring attacking my nerve endings relentlessly. But it took some work and experimentation to find the rhythm and pacing to get me there. Hopefully, that will become easier. If not, I may find myself reaching for sleeves that don't require so much stop-start or figuring out.
Sometimes, the enjoyment of a sleeve comes easy as it brings all of the pleasure to you from the word go. But some others involve some work "tuning in" to them, and only rewarding if you can find the required rhythm and technique to click with it. The Lotus Garden is definitely in the latter group, requiring some practice and usually working best when paired up with a second sleeve during a session, to dip in and out to maintain sensation and keep the experience fresh. But if you have the willpower to experiment and pace with it, it is a rewardingly satisfying - albeit intense - sleeve to own that will offer deep, shuddering orgasms that will have you begging Katsuni for mercy. Just know all good things don't come easy.
A great and unique sleeve, offering deep, intense stimulation, but of a kind different from the usual nubs and ridges found in most other "intense" Fleshlights. It's a pain in the neck to clean and dry, that's for sure. And it requires a bit of practice to figure out how to get the best from the texture. But once you find your rhythm with this one, it'll reward with some of the most intense orgasms offered by a Fleshlight sleeve.
