About Me

NOTE (August 20, 2019): After several years on this site, I have decided to take another hiatus, effective at the end of the year. It's quite possible this hiatus is a all-out retirement, but haven't decided to call it that yet. I will review the remainder of the sleeves I have, and may review my 2019 haul (if there is one), but beyond that, I'm winding down my reviews.

My first experience (or FLight, as some pros in the field call it) was in 2010, but I really got into Fleshlights in 2013. I tend to FLy about once (sometimes twice a day) when I'm really into it, and there are some days (or weeks.. or months) in which I stay grounded and not fly at all.

A few ProTips to help people out:

1) Take good care of your FL. That means no oily lubes, no soap (except Fleshwash, which contains triclosan, which is mild enough on the sleeves), clean with rubbing alcohol sparingly (to kill small amounts of mold in case a cleaning has gone wrong) and clean your FL shortly after use (I lost that first sleeve in 2011 for failing to keep it clean).

2) Warm it with warm water, or with the SleeveWarmer. Don't build funny contraptions like retrofitting a steam inhaler or something of that nature. You can cause the material to tear due to heat damage, and you can also cause injury to your prized jewels. (Fortunately, I escaped the latter, but lost another sleeve because of this, and that was before the SleeveWarmer caught on).

3) FLights tend to take on a character of their own each time. Yes, generally each texture will have similar effects, but don't be surprised if one day it's really enjoyable, and the next time it's just a "meh" kind of day. Also, make sure you've fixed yourself from "Death Grip Syndrome" before fully ruling that a sleeve is great/not great.

4) Be sure to FLy a bit more often with a new sleeve in the beginning, lest you discover a defect. If you do, Fleshlight can replace it for you, but only for the first 90 days. (Cautionary tale: I had a defective sleeve, but did not realize it until the window had past. The sleeve eventually got tossed.)

Torque Review

May 28th, 2019 (Torque Texture)

I got the Go Torque as a freebie for reaching a certain $ threshold in the End of Year/New Year New Rear sale of 2018. Although this was a freebie, I will endeavor to give it a fair review, as I do with all sleeves.


Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. The only difference with the Go Torque compared to the Go Surge (which I do not yet have) is the entry (and in case of the freebie, the color, it is transparent blue), and the entry looks a lot like a jet engine opening. Kinda fascinating, but also an indication of how the sleeve will behave as you enter and begin thrusting.

Lube: For this review, I have been using Fleshlube Water, but have recently acquired some Gun Oil H2O after it being highly recommended by other redditors on the FL reddit and also on FleshAssist. But, need to use up what's already open.

Noise: This was not a particularly noisy sleeve. Again, the FL sleeves don't seem that noisy, so unless you are really going to town in an echo chamber or in plain sight, you shouldn't be able to give yourself away with it.

Penetration: The Go Torque is slightly smaller than a full FL, and thus allows for more fuller penetration for those who are average or below average in the size of their endowments. For those above average, the sleeve is still long enough to penetrate fully, but those with exceptional endowments may have to use caution so not to thrust their sensitive head into the hard plastic cap. Besides size, the Go Torque is richly textured with with a circular chamber, followed by a ribbed chamber and then another spherical chamber before a series of alternating ribbed and textured cylindrical chambers. Each new texture is a new sensation to penetrate into with every thrust, leading invariable to a ratcheting up of..

Intensity: The Go Torque is not exactly a gentle sleeve, and it is a challenge to last too long with this sleeve. In addition, the smaller case and texture sleeve adds additional friction and tightness to the experience, and orgasms tend to come on rather quickly, especially if one thrusts vigorously with abandon.

Orgasm: With a FL, there are three orgasms that tend to come about (pun intended). One is a gentle buildup that leads to a nice orgasm. Another is one that causes you to cum without warning. The last is a "when you blow, you know." The Torque is very much a third category sleeve: Orgasms tend to be quick, intense and often lead to vocalizations. This sleeves forte in inducing orgasms is magnified if one has the shower adapter (for Flight and Go) plus the Shower Mount.

Cleanup: The Torque is a tricky sleeve to clean due to it being transparent and heavily textured. It is recommended that you immediately rinse the sleeve out after your FLight and then gently run a paper towel through it. While powdering will make the sleeve less sticky (with talc or corn starch), it will quickly cloud the transparent sleeve, making it less visible to see you thrusting into the sleeve. I would not recommend powdering this sleeve at all, and just being very proactive in cleaning it.

Conclusion:
Conclusion:
The Go Torque may not be a "top-shelf" sleeve, but it is a welcome addition for those who are desiring a more compact FL product for travel or for those who are smaller in the size department that desire a more "filling" experience. For a FL collector, getting one of the GO products is generally recommended anyways.

Texas Tornado Review

May 22nd, 2019 (Texas Tornado Texture)

I got the Alexis Texas Texas Tornado (the butt orifice) as part of my 2018-19 New Years haul. I had actually been eyeing getting this particular texture for some time, and with the New Year, New Rear deal plus a actually decent set of gift tiers, I went in and got it.


Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. Now, I'm not real partial to buttholes (everyone's got one), but this does appear to accurately depict Alexis Texas' famous backdoor. (Sadly it doesn't replicate the cheeks as well, which the real life version... are frankly quite appealing)

Lube: For this review, I have been using Fleshlube Water, but have recently acquired some Gun Oil H2O after it being highly recommended by other redditors on the FL reddit and also on FleshAssist. But, need to use up what's already open.

Noise: This was not a particularly noisy sleeve. Again, the FL sleeves don't seem that noisy, so unless you are really going to town in an echo chamber or in plain sight, you shouldn't be able to give yourself away with it.

Penetration: The Alexis Texas Texas Tornado is the same as the previous texture paired with Alexis' vagina (before that became Outlaw). It has a peculiar opening before a slightly wavy texture with hollowed out bumps and lined indentations throughout the sleeve. As it's the same throughout the texture, once you get past the initial opening of the inside of the texture (less than 1-1.5 inches), the rest of the texture is the same, which makes this a great texture for those who are perhaps a little less endowed in the length department and are stricken with a fear of texture FOMO.

Intensity: The Texas Tornado starts as a fairly mild sleeve, but is still stimulating. However, once you start getting into a rhythm, that's when the magic starts, and the texture starts to increase in intensity (as a tornado starts to build up, quite literally). While you can retain control, this sleeve can easily send you over the edge if you get too carried away, leading to

Orgasm: With a FL, there are three orgasms that tend to come about (pun intended). One is a gentle buildup that leads to a nice orgasm. Another is one that causes you to cum without warning. The last is a "when you blow, you know." The Texas Tornado is deliciously in the second category (if you don't retain control), with more of a first (if you retain control) category for other orgasms. Either way, the Tornado has been a pleasurable sleeve that gets some considerable FLight time, and oftentimes I'm not even really thinking about the orifice.

Cleanup: Although the texture is detailed, the Texas Tornado is not hard to clean up if you are prompt in doing so. Although you may not want to, you need to run warm/somewhat hot water down the sleeve canal as soon as possible to remove deposits. A paper towel (of the good kind, not the economy roll store brand) can help mop up the moisture, but be careful, or it will eat a part of your towel.

Conclusion:
Alexis Texas was one of the earlier generation of FLG's to be added, and the Texas Tornado has enjoyed a long run in the FL line-up, and once you get it, it's not that hard (hehe) to figure out why. It may not be a top line, "first purchase" but is a welcome addition for FL collectors or those who enjoy FL.

Dragon Review

May 20th, 2019 (Dragon Texture)

After yet another long hiatus, I am happy to return with new reviews. I got the Asa Akira Dragon back during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale of 2017, and just haven't gotten around to reviewing it. Perhaps it's because it has quite a few reviews already. Or maybe I'm lazy. But, since I have it, I might as well review it.


Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. Granted, I've only seen Asa Akira's vulva both on a FL and in pictures, but from the images, it's quite realistic, and pretty appealing. Her definitive autograph signature is also on the Fleshlight face, so you can't mistake it for someone else.

Lube: For this review, I have been using Fleshlube Water, but have recently acquired some Gun Oil H2O after it being highly recommended by other redditors on the FL reddit and also on FleshAssist. But, need to use up what's already open.

Noise: This was not a particularly noisy sleeve. Again, the FL sleeves don't seem that noisy, so unless you are really going to town in an echo chamber or in plain sight, you shouldn't be able to give yourself away with it.

Penetration: The Asa Akira Dragon is a ribbed texture with a bumped coil rotating across the ribs. Once you insert your manhood inside (which is enjoyable, but not overly overpowering), you start to really enjoy it, leading to

Intensity: The Dragon is modestly intense, and does give you the ability to control yourself. However, if you were to go to town, this sleeve can easily bring you to the brink in a fairly short period of time (though not as quickly as the STU). It's up to you on how you want to face the Dragon (pun intended).

Orgasm: With a FL, there are three orgasms that tend to come about (pun intended). One is a gentle buildup that leads to a nice orgasm. Another is one that causes you to cum without warning. The last is a "when you blow, you know." The Dragon tends to be a third category orgasm, and the more you can resist the moment of completion, the more intense it will be. However, short orgasm are still a bit enjoyable with the Dragon.

Cleanup: Because of the ribbed texture, the Dragon can be a bit of a challenge to clean up. Although you may not want to, you need to run warm/somewhat hot water down the sleeve canal as soon as possible to remove deposits. A paper towel (of the good kind, not the economy roll store brand) can help mop up the moisture, but be careful, or it will eat a part of your towel.

Conclusion:
The Dragon was one of the first textured sleeves to come about, as Asa Akira was an early (not an OG, but close) participant in molding for the FLG line. If you are going for long-running sleeve as opposed to a fresh release, the Dragon isn't a bad choice, although it's moved on from being a top choice sleeve from long ago.

STU Review

December 25th, 2017 (STU Texture)

I got the STU as part of the Library Girl Study Pack (along with the Kendra Sunderland Angel FL), marking the second time I got an STU (my first FL all the way back in 2010 was a STU, but poor care and paranoia about storage forced me to throw it away after just a few months back then). Combined from 2010 and now, I have well over twenty FLights that I can easily recall, including quite a few since I reacquired it again.


Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. The generic vulva is anatomically correct... too correct. Although there's no denying it looks pleasing... it also looks generic.

Lube: In the case of this review, I used ID Glide water based lubricant. It is wise to keep the lube on hand, because if you go for any great length of time, you're gonna need more. If you are in doubt mid FLight, use more.

Noise: The noise made by FL's don't bother me much, and unless someone is actually watching you going at it, it's probably not that big of an issue.

Penetration: The STU is known for it's one unified texture: a tunnel of pillow like bumps from start to finish. Although they do feel pleasurable to thrust in and out of, these bumps are going to increase in stimulation rather quickly... leading to...

Intensity: The STU lives up to it's billing in wanting to make you last longer... in that the intensity ramps up incrementally yet quickly, leaving you with two choices. One is to to change your thrusting or stroking technique, the other is to head for the exit ramp of the FLight and orgasm.

Orgasm: With a FL, there are three orgasms that tend to come about (pun intended). One is a gentle buildup that leads to a nice orgasm. Another is one that causes you to cum without warning. The last is a "when you blow, you know." The STU is exclusively in the final category, and the intensity of your orgasm is generally dependent on how long you were able to hold out. There's nothing subtle with the STU, from it's bright gold case to the sleeve design, to the finish you will have with this thing.

Cleanup: The STU can be a bit tricky to clean up. Although you may not want to, you need to run warm/somewhat hot water down the sleeve canal as soon as possible to remove deposits. A paper towel can help mop up the moisture, but be careful, or it will eat a part of your towel.

Conclusion:
If you are looking for a FL to help improve your sexual stamina, the STU has been the go to choice, and one should not discredit the original simply because there are new options available with stamina training like features. Otherwise, it's not a must buy FL, though it makes a nice add on for a deal package.

Lush Review

December 22nd, 2017 (Lush Texture)

I got the Abigail Mac Lush FL during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2017 sale. In the interest of remedying a lack of any reviews, I went ahead and wrote this review after three FLights with the Lush, as opposed to my customary five FLights.

Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. Abigail Mac's vulva is very realistic, and quite appealing to the eye. It also is very enticing when one penetrates into the sleeve as the head and shaft of one's cock rubs against it.

Lube: In the case of this review, I used ID Glide water based lubricant. Lube was not too much of an issue, although I did have to re-lube towards the end. As a rule of thumb: If in doubt, use more.

Noise: The noise made by FL's don't bother me much, and unless someone is actually watching you going at it, it's probably not that big of an issue.

Penetration: The Lush starts out with a narrower than usual opening before expanding into a set of incomplete spiral points before reaching a spiral that's somewhat similar to the entry of Kendra Sunderland's Angel. The next texture is a series of very small bumps aligned in rings that are very close to another. By this point, a man of average endowment would not likely reach the next texture. Pulling back out of the Lush leads to a reverse sensation going throw the spiral, a nice contrast.

Intensity: The Lush is not incredibly intense at first, but it does build up nicely over time. It does take time for one to build up to orgasm, but the journey to release is enjoyable and feels a lot like spending time with someone you love... in that you want the experience to last.

Orgasm: With a FL, there are three orgasms that tend to come about (pun intended). One is a gentle buildup that leads to a nice orgasm. Another is one that causes you to cum without warning. The last is a "when you blow, you know." The Lush is something that falls almost entirely in the first category, with some potential for the last category if one is rather horny and haven't had action in a few days.

Cleanup: Very little issues with clean up. Running some warm to somewhat hot water through the canal will remove deposits rather quickly, and it doesn't hurt to run a finger through it as well. A paper towel run carefully and slowly through the canal will pick up most moisture, and help cut the drying time.

Conclusion:
The Lush is a nice addition to the FLG line, and worth a look if one is looking for a Fleshlight that allows for one to take their time. Abigail Mac fans will not be disappointed, and those who have several Fleshlights should consider adding it to their collection.

Angel Review

December 6th, 2017 (Angel Texture)

I got the Kendra Sunderland Angel FL as a package deal (Library Girl Study Pack) during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2017 sale. In the interest of remedying a dearth of reviews, I went ahead and wrote this review after three FLights with the Angel, as opposed to my customary five FLights.

Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. Kendra Sunderland's vulva is asthetically pleasing and appears to be a work of art. The picture does not do the sleeve any justice from actually looking at the replica on the sleeve.

Lube: In the case of this review, I used ID Glide water based lubricant. Despite varying textures, the lube lasted long enough for most of the FLight, and on only one occasion did I feel like I needed to use more. When in doubt, use more.

Noise: The noise made by FL's don't bother me much, and unless someone is actually watching you going at it, it's probably not that big of an issue.

Penetration: The Angel is similar to Eva Lovia's Sugar in the starting sensation of a spiral, but the spacing is much tighter. From memory, the Sugar felt almost as good, but the minor tweak FL did here was enjoyable. Next, one moves into a collage of narrowly spaced mini bumps that seems like someone shrunk an STU down to tiny little pips. Then you reach a elongated spiral, as if someone untwisted it to nearly straight lines. For average men, this is as far as one can go into the sleeve, and only if one is rather endowed will they reach the next set of small pips. Overall, this combination does live up to it's billing, as one definitely feels a "rising" sensation as one enters, and it only goes up from there.

Intensity: Remember that part about "goes up from there?" Yep, even after the initial penetration, the Angel works effortlessly to stimulate your cock and help you to quickly ascend to orgasm. It is entirely possible for you to delay your orgasm, but the ever increasing intensity of sensations is in a pleasant incremental crescendo that makes you feel a little guilty you are holding back from your ultimate reward.

Orgasm: With a FL, there are three orgasms that tend to come about (pun intended). One is a gentle buildup that leads to a nice orgasm. Another is one that causes you to cum without warning. The last is a "when you blow, you know." The Angel is very much a first category with a bit of the latter. I have not yet had a bad orgasm with this sleeve, and it seems to get better each time I FLy.

Cleanup: Despite its design, the Angel does pretty well with cleanup. Running some warm to somewhat hot water through the canal will remove deposits rather quickly, and it doesn't hurt to run a finger through it as well. A paper towel run carefully and slowly through the canal will pick up most moisture, and help cut the drying time.

Conclusion:
This sleeve is a winner. Despite the lack of reviews(as of 5 December 2017), this FL is a great recent addition to the FLG line and should be one of the first five FL's someone buys. This quickly became a top three sleeve for me, and will likely be a top ten sleeve for just about any FL owner.

Reign Review

December 17th, 2016 (Reign Texture)

I got the Nikki Benz Reign about a week after it came out as part of a package deal from Fleshlight. I've had several FLights with the Reign, but because of life circumstances I've only just now been able to write a proper review.

Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. As mentioned in a few other reviews, butt orifices aren't my thing. However, Nikki Benz's looks realistic and looks as if she's done some serious foreplay before you enter.

Lube: I used Fleshlube (Water) for this review. Although I usually FLy several times (at least 5) before writing a review, I always FLY once more immediately regardless before a review so that the review is fresh and as honest as can be. The Reign does have some varying textures, but you shouldn't need to re-lube if you are somewhat generous with the lube. Whenever in doubt, use more.

Noise: Either I'm getting used to the noise various FL's make or this is a quiet sleeve. If you are in an enclosed room, I doubt anyone would know unless you are next to a open-draped window: in which case you have a different issue to address.

Penetration: The Reign starts off with a "thatched" pattern and oh my, it's a winner. Go further in and you have a bunch of rectangular shappes in a ribbed fashion that feel very nice (and why the Fit took this element from the Reign), followed by a tight ribbed area and then some some soft pointed spiky ribs (but most men won't reach this part). The first few strokes or thrusts gets you aroused quickly.

Intensity: This sleeve lives up to it's descriptive billing: You can climax in no time if you don't pace yourself, and even if you do, the sensations will tempt you to FLy over the threshold of no return.

Orgasm: There are sleeves that are gentle and let you build up to a nice climax, there are sleeves that take you by surprise, and then there are sleeves that when you blow, you know. The Reign is some of the second and all of the last category. I've never NOT had a bad orgasm with this sleeve, and vocalizations are common with this sleeve.

Cleanup: There are some portions of the sleeve that can trap water and other deposits, but a good stream of water and then a paper towel through the canal usually is sufficient to aid in the sleeve's drying time.

Conclusion:
This sleeve is well-crafted. It's definitely a top sleeve and one of the better "butt" sleeves, especially if realism isn't crucial to what you are looking for. The Reign is the better of the two Nikki Benz sleeves, by far. Definitely worth putting it in your collection.

Swallow Review

December 14th, 2016 (Swallow Texture)

I got the Teagan Presley swallow sleeve as the "Free Mystery Sleeve" during the 2016 BF/CM Sale. Although I was a bit disappointed (at least initially) in the sleeve choice by whatever random generator used, a free gift is a free gift. On to the review!

Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree, and the mouth of Teagan Presley looks inviting, almost if you want to just smooch with it... but that's not the main purpose of a Fleshlight, as you probably know by now.

Lube: I used Fleshlube (Water) for this review. Although I FLy several times (at least 5) before writing a review, I always FLY once more immediately before a review so that the review is fresh and as honest as can be. The swallow doesn't require a whole bunch of lube, but if in doubt, always use more. One pre-lubing session was adequate for the entire FLight.

Noise: Surprisingly quiet, I think it may even be quieter than the real thing.

Penetration: When you first penetrate the Swallow, it does feel a bit tight as you then entered a ribbed canal. There are also big bumps before a very tight canal, but most average sized men will likely not make past the big bumps. Although the initial penetration seems smooth in nature, pulling back means pulling back on the ribbed canal, of which creates a strong sensation on the head of your cock.

Intensity: Initially, the major source of intensity of this sleeve is the sensations on your "head" as you pull back each stroke in the ribbed canal. However, as time goes on, the suction in the Swallow begins to increase dramatically, adding to the intensity.

Orgasm: Because of the suction that is generated by the Swallow, you can accelerate the arousal process to orgasm quickly, or pull out of the sleeve and relieve the suction. Orgasms in this sleeve aren't toe-curlers but are still enjoyable and can be intense. You can also build up your orgasm a bit in this sleeve, which can add to the overall "bang" when you cut loose.

Cleanup: Because the canal is somewhat tight at points, it's best to rinse out with water on both ends (the orifice and the through-hole at the end), and that can be a wee bit of a hassle. Drying with a paper towel helps greatly, but be careful, the tight canal at the end might aid in tearing your towel, and the sleeve might eat your towel, forcing you to retrieve the lost pieces/towel.

Conclusion:
The Swallow is a wonderful simulation of oral sex, and a worthwhile purchase. If you like strong suction and can put up with the slightly more tedious clean-up process, it's definitely a great sleeve.

Primal Review

December 12th, 2016 (Primal Texture)

I got the Primal Sleeve paired with Eufrat Mai's vagina for the BF/CM sale of 2015. I'm not sure why it is that I haven't reviewed it until now, but here goes.

Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. Eufrat Mai's vulva looks amazing and is realistic.

Lube: I used Fleshlube (Water) for this review. In most cases, I FLy at least five times before reviewing, but I always fly once more right before the review. These sleeve need a little bit more lube due to it's varying textures, but you don't have to re-lube afterwards. When in doubt, use more.

Noise: Fairly quiet. No complaints here.

Penetration: The Primal starts off tight and the alternates between ribbed chambers and tight openings before reaching the now-classical "lotus node" followed by flat tipped fangs (think someone cutting the "spiky" points off of a Destroya) followed by bumps. Only those more endowed will reach the second lotus node, average sized men will likely just graze the STU bumps. The tight/loose alterations makes for a enjoyable entrance, but other than those points, plus the lotus nodes, the sleeve itself is a bit more on the "loose" side.

Intensity: The Primal is quite diverse in its varying textures, starting with the classic "lotus nodes", adapting the "spikes/fingers" between the Barracuda and Destroya, adding the STU bumps and borrowing the ribbed chambers from the Gauntlet. The varying textures lead to a truly primal experience that will begin building and guiding you to orgasm quickly. And by guiding... that's a subtle way of saying you are not in control long with this sleeve.

Orgasm: If you are trying to last long with this sleeve, you will be disappointed. Its one mission is to bring you in and then raise your arousal so quick in which you have no choice but to surrender yourself to your primal urge to cum. Orgasms are intense, and range from highly pleasurable to involuntary vocalizations and shuddering.

Cleanup: Because of the many textures, you might need to use quite a lot of water to rinse out the sleeve. A paper towel does accelerate the process, but if you are not careful the sleeve will eat it and you will need to remove the lost portion of towel.

Conclusion:
Overall, it's a decently good hybrid texture sleeve. As all the FL EU girls are on Collector's Corner as of 2016, you might want to make sure you get a Primal sleeve before the sleeve is discontinued.

Fit Review

December 11th, 2016 (Fit Texture)

I got Nicole Aniston's Fit as a sleeve only option during the 2016 BF/CM sale. Part of what intrigued me was the billing, plus this year I felt adventurous and wanted to take a gamble on a relatively new sleeve.

Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree. Nicole Aniston's vulva certainly looks unique, like a real woman's vulva, and in a oddly arousing way.

Lube: I used Fleshlube (Water) for this review. Normally, I FLy at least five times with a sleeve before writing a review, however due to the lack of reviews for the Fit, I chose to write a review with my third FLight, which I did right before the review. I find that more lube is better with this sleeve, but once you apply a generous helping, you won't have to re-lube afterwards.

Noise: It's actually a quiet sleeve. Not much concern in the noise department.

Penetration: When you first enter, you enter into a spiral canal of long bumps that look a lot like weights in a weight machine (perhaps a subtle nod to Nicole Aniston's desire to be fit). Then you enter into a random assortment of bumps, rings and from there it's an abundance of variation in textures. It's not a super intense experience at first penetration, but don't let that deceive you at all.

Intensity: The Fit starts off gentle, but incrementally gets more intense as you stroke (and even more intense if you thrust). I found myself to be building up to a strong orgasm within a couple of minutes, but I didn't feel like I was going to lose control unless I wanted to.

Orgasm: If you stroke with the Fit, the orgasm is somewhat pleasurable. But if you have a Shower Mount, this is a sleeve that works WONDERS if you go hands free and thrust. When I finally decided to cum I got to be quite vocal in my release.

Cleanup: Despite it's many textures, the sleeve is fairly spread out, so running water down the sleeve gets all the deposits out. A quick run through with a paper towel and the sleeve was pretty much dry.

Conclusion:
Overall, a great sleeve. The Fit may not be the best first purchase, but a returning customer would likely enjoy what the Fit has to offer. Certainly has the potential of being a top five sleeve for many FL fans.

Blade Review

December 5th, 2016 (Blade Texture)

It's a interesting story how I picked up the Fleshlight Blade. This is one of the few purchases I did not buy from Fleshlight directly, but at a reputable online adult toy company. I'm normally leery about doing so, but as this was one of the few legitimate outlets still carrying the Blade, I went ahead and bought it.

Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree, except that other than the shape of the case and sleeve altering the vulva slightly, it's the generic FL vulva. Highly stylized and not super realistic, but still vaguely pleasing.

Lube: I used Fleshlube (Water) for this review. Although I FLy several times (at least 5) before writing a review, I always FLY once more immediately before a review so that the review is fresh and as honest as can be. As there are plenty of spaces to where lube can get trapped, considerable lube usage is needed.

Noise: This is the Blade's worst flaw. The squeezable case and odd design leads to air expelling in where ever it can, making considerable noise. It's why I don't often fly with the Blade.

Penetration: Despite the cut-section looking like this may not be a pleasant experience, you'd be surprised: It's quite enjoyable to enter. Your cock begins pushing out the divisions of the "blade rings", and then when you pull back they push back on you. Quite enjoyable.

Intensity: The sleeve looks intense, and it is. It's in the same design of rapid repeated sensations like the STU (bumps), Joanna Angel's Punk (rings of different sizes) and Super Ribbed, but different as the material of the "blade rings" are a bit thicker and more spaced out. However, you can have a quick go at it or enjoy it for a time before you have to cum.

Orgasm: Depending on how fast (and tight you squeeze the case) is how your orgasm will be. It can range from a somewhat pleasurable sensation to a enjoyable release complete with vocalizations (which might be problematic if the noise the Blade makes dosen't draw attention).

Cleanup: The sleeve itself is not hard, as there's enough space between the rings for a quality paper towel (emphasis on quality) to wick away. However, the case though can be a real pain in the ass as it's intricately and ornamentally designed. Dry time varies, but isn't prohibitive.

Conclusion:
Although increasingly difficult to acquire, the Fleshlight Blade is a interesting deviation from their hard case design, giving it some versatility. However, it's noise issues can raise eyebrows if someone is in your house at the same time. If you can still get the Blade though, it's a worthwhile investment for the Fleshlight collector.

MVP Review

December 4th, 2016 (MVP Texture)

I got the Nikki Benz MVP about a week after it came out as part of a package deal from Fleshlight. I've had several FLights with the MVP, but due to life circumstances, it's only now that I've sat down to write a review.

Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I agree, and the vulva of Nikki Benz is highly realistic and even looks open, inviting and even a bit aroused, as if its "ready" for you to penetrate.

Lube: I used Fleshlube (Water) for this review. Although I FLy several times (at least 5) before writing a review, I always FLY once more immediately before a review so that the review is fresh and as honest as can be. The MVP is not much of a lube consumer. I only had to lube once, and it lasted for the whole flight.

Noise: Other than the lube sloshing around just a bit, it was rather quiet, though if someone else who knew the sound was listening, they might pick up on it.

Penetration: The MVP's strong suit is in this department. The first texture you experience as you enter is a series of curved bed of mini-bumps that invite you in and give you initial stimulation to keep going into the spaced ribs that follow it. Then the larger bumps (similar to those in Angela White's Indulge) greet you, but you'll likely only feel some of them depending on how big you are in the length department.

Intensity: Despite its looks, The MVP is not a super intense sleeve like the Destroya or Obsession. But it's not a gentle sleeve either. Depending on where you focus your time while going for it in your FLight is how intense the sleeve is. Stay towards the opening, and you'll get some intense sensations for the head of your cock. Move around slowly, and you can help build up your stimulation and orgasm.

Orgasm: If you go particularly fast in your stroking/thrusting, don't be surprised if your orgasm sneaks up on you. You can control it and delay it with the MVP, but not by a whole bunch. Either way, the MVP left me feeling complete and satisfied.

Cleanup: There are some portions of the sleeve that can trap water and other deposits, but a paper towel through the canal usually is sufficient to aid in the sleeve's drying time. Not the easiest sleeve to clean and dry, but nowhere near a nightmare to clean and dry either.

Conclusion:
Overall, a solid sleeve choice for any FLight. The MVP ranks solidly on intensity, orgasmic sensations and excels in helping facilitate arousal during penetration. It may not be a first purchase sleeve, but it's definitely worth looking into for a fourth or fifth texture.

Torrid Review

December 31st, 2015 (Torrid Texture)

I got the Tori Black Torrid as part of the Cyber Monday sale, after passing the sleeve up several times in favor of other sleeves (such as the Angela White Indulge, Lisa Ann Barracuda, etc.). I can honestly say that although all those sleeves range from good to great, I’m glad to have picked up the Torrid.
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the vulva of Tori Black is amazingly replicated, and looks open and inviting.
Lube: As this is a new sleeve to me, I went through my customary minimum of five (5) FLights before reviewing this sleeve. For this sleeve, I used Fleshlight’s FleshLube Water. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both Fleshlube and Astroglide tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. The Torrid doesn’t need a whole ton of lube, as the texture is fairly wide, the only thing you need to account is the “tri-lobes” or the three semi-circle flaps that separate the texture every inch or so. If you a bit on the larger side, use a bit more so you aren’t roughing up your cock when you enter. Lube will spread out over time, making things nice and slick. Another reviewer (Casquetero) noted that ample lube use will lead to the Torrid “squirting” out lube, and although I did notice a bit of lube escaping the replica of the vulva… it’s not that profound unless you get into some serious lube use.
Noise: Nothing out of the extraordinary. If you do get the aforementioned “squirting” effect, you might get some squishing noise, but nothing louder than fapping with your hand. And if it came down to noise, and you had to choose between your hand or using a Fleshlight molded after Tori Black… I think I know what I would choose.
Penetration: Depends on how big you are. If you have a well-endowed manhood, you’ll feel the subtle bumps in each section quite well, and this will add to the sensation. Regardless, all men should be able to feel the semicircle “trilobes”/”triflaps” as they pass through, and this is a subtle sensation compared to other textures. Subtle as it is, penetration is still noticeable, and for those who want a bit of a slower initial build-up, the Torrid performs amazingly well.
Intensity: With the slightly varied bumps in the Torrid, one would think this sleeve is intense. If you are well-endowed with girth, this might be the case. But if you are closer to the average (as I am), it isn’t… at least not initially. Towards the end of your FLight (as one approaches the time to cum and as the cock expands and hardens in anticipation for orgasm), you will eventually feel these bumps to some degree, adding to the intensity of the sleeve. “Dick Tantalizing Majesty” might be a slight overstatement in the beginning, but if one gets going with the Torrid on a hands-free flight, the Torrid has a way of bringing you close to the edge, but not giving you that last little bit of stimulation to trigger your orgasm. In a way, the Torrid is much like Tori Black in no shortage of her scenes… reels you in with great looks and personality, and then traps you and makes you hers until you have nothing left to give.
Orgasm: The best orgasms with the Torrid are hands-free. Mount this in your shower, grab on to something clamped/bolted down, and go for it. I’ve had a couple of strong orgasms (one particularly brutal and draining), complete with screaming out and basically being WIPED OUT, but in a pleasurable, satisfying way.
Cleanup: The bumps are fairly spaced out, so a good stream of water will get the deposits out. A paper towel will hasten dry time considerably. One of the easier sleeves to clean.

Conclusion:
If you are looking for a "quick and dirty" orgasm... the Torrid may not be the best sleeve. But for those who want to build up to a pleasurable orgasm that often takes all you have, the Torrid is a great sleeve for the job. Like many sleeves, it takes a certain knowledge of Fleshlights to appreciate the Torrid, so grab some other sleeves first if you really want to enjoy the Torrid.

Punk-Charmer Review

December 29th, 2015 (Punk-Charmer Texture)

I acquired the Joanna Angel Punk sleeve as part of the of the Cyber Monday sale. Although I am not as partial to butt orifices as I am with vaginal orifices, the texture looked quite intriguing, and with the discounted price on the normal sleeve price, I dropped the money for it.
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the butt orifice of Joanna Angel looks quite like the real thing. Much like Jenna Haze’s butt, there is some molding of her labia included in the mold, which can provide a context clue on how to arrange the sleeve if you are wanting to simulate visual penetration from in front or behind.
Lube: As this is a new sleeve to me, I went through my customary minimum of five (5) FLights before reviewing this sleeve. I did break open a bottle of FleshLube Water (finally!) for this review, and will likely be using this lube for future reviews. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. As the Punk has several chambers of different diameter rings (which will trap a small amount of lube), you will need a bit of lube to get started, and possibly relube during your FLight if you didn’t put enough in the sleeve.
Noise: Fairly quiet, unless you’ve built up a bit of suction when you pull out.
Penetration: Very pleasurable. You immediately feel the changes of width in the sleeve, as you move from group of rings to another group, with varying widths. Although the sleeve has limited variation in this regard, it is still very enjoyable to enter.
Intensity: This is quite an intense experience FLying with the Punk texture, especially if you are “cut” The changing sensations on your head make it hard to hold off your orgasm, though those who can will enjoy a nice buildup.
Orgasm: Very pleasurable, and even to the point of making vocalizations and shaking somewhat. The intensity of the sleeve leads to a great experience as you cum.
Cleanup: Despite the many crevices in the sleeve by the rings, the sleeve is not hard to clean. A prompt rinsing with some towel drying is sufficient to get the sleeve cleaned up.

Conclusion:
Even if one is more partial to other parts of the female body (i.e. pussy), one should not get hung up on the Punk texture simply because its paired with a butthole. It's a worthwhile purchase, and is great for men who are "cut".

Crystal Review

December 28th, 2015 (Crystal Texture)

I got the Crystal sleeve in the “Mouth” orifice as a free sleeve in part of the Cyber Monday Sale promotion. While the concept of a clear sleeve was interesting, it was not intriguing enough to plop money down. However, as a free sleeve (can’t turn down anything “free” now…), I decided to give it a go… or 5 (no, not in a row, in case one was wondering).
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the mouth looks kinda appealing, even if it is the generic Fleshlight mouth. The fact that it’s a clear sleeve and you can see into the sleeve is also pleasing. However, as time went on with using the Ice Crystal, the mouth orifice side is not as transparent, and is now more translucent than transparent.
Lube: As this is a new sleeve to me, I went through my customary minimum of five (5) FLights before reviewing this sleeve. I did break open a bottle of FleshLube Water (finally!) for this review, and will likely be using this lube for future reviews. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. For the Crystal, you will need a bit of lube to get started, especially as lube tends to pool into the spherical chamber a bit. Your cock will distribute the lube (eventually), but unless you want the beginning of your FLight to be a bit more turbulent (and not entirely in a pleasurable manner), use a bit more lube, especially on you.
Noise: I mentioned I might bin this category. I’m glad I didn’t, as the Ice does tend to make a bit of noise. Perhaps it’s the mouth. Perhaps it’s the clear cap rattling around if it’s not screwed shut.
Penetration: Penetration is quite pleasurable, as you enter a narrow canal followed by a bumpy and widening intial chamber, before a ribbed narrowing before the crystal “sphere”, followed by more ribbed and bumped texture. Although this is not a sharp sensation, the sight of seeing yourself penetrate is quite a thrill of itself.
Intensity: You would think with all the variation, that the Ice Crystal is an intense sleeve. It is, and isn’t. If you move repeatedly into the “sphere” and then further past it, you can build up intensity quickly there, but it’s primarily speed that determines if you have a build-up with this sleeve or not.
Orgasm: Although orgasms aren’t as super intense as with other sleeves, cumming in the Crystal is still quite pleasurable (and again, the visual element of seeing the whole FLight is what sells this sleeve).
Cleanup: Alas, this sleeve falls short on this category. While rinsing out the sleeve is enough to remove your “deposits”, the sleeve sadly cannot have a towel run through it, unless you want to make the sleeve lose its transparency because the tackiness of the sleeve will take up your towel fibers. The best bet is to use a blow dryer with no heat to help push the moisture out, but it’s best to let it air dry only to keep it’s visual clarity intact as long as possible.

Conclusion:
The Ice Crystal is a decent textured sleeve in which visually seeing yourself penetrate is the main selling point. An added bonus is that you can compare (roughly) how far you penetrate, which can actually aid you in making decisions on future purchases. Not a "must buy", but still nice to have.

Luxe Review

December 22nd, 2015 (Luxe Texture)

One of the newest sleeves from Fleshlight is the Cherry DiVivre Luxe, which I got as part of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale of 2015.
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the vulva of Cherry DiVivre is amazing. Intriguingly, the folks over at Fleshlight got a great mold of her vulva, as it opens up quite invitingly as if to give you a sneak peek into ahem, “coming attractions”.
Lube: Giving the newness of this sleeve, I have the exact minimum number of FLights with the Luxe prior to feeling confident in making a review, which for me is five (5). In this case, this review was written shortly after that fifth FLight. For the final FLight before this review, I used Astroglide for lube. I do have some FL Water lube, but since it’s unopened, I’ll wait to use it. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. For the Luxe, not a whole bunch of lube is required, as although it is textured, the texture elements are smooth in nature and spaced out enough so that lube does not get trapped in any one location. However, if you do go for a long duration FLight, additional lube may be required.
Noise: I’m considering cutting this category from future reviews, as it’s not exceptionally noisy, like most sleeves.
Penetration: Very enjoyable, especially with the first set of ovaloid bumps that your cock passes through. If that’s not enough, try the small bumps encircling a rim, followed by more ovaloid bumps and then a ring of circular mounds. Given the variation of this texture, there’s something that you will find enjoyable as you first enter and begin to FLy.
Intensity: Like the Indulge, the surfaces are largely smooth, but if you are on the larger side in terms of girth (or as your cock hardens and expands as you prepare to cum), you WILL feel the variations, and trying to keep control of your orgasm will be difficult, if not a losing battle. Also, if done right, you can get a little bit of suction power out of the sleeve, but the texture and variation is what provides the intensity.
Orgasm: WOW. Save for one FLight, orgasms in this sleeve are exceptionally pleasurable. Going hands-free with a shower mount (or using shower handles) is even better. This is one sleeve where I noticeably make vocalizations frequently as I cum.
Cleanup: I’ve noticed that this sleeve can be a bit tricky to dry. A paper towel and either a fan or a blow-dryer on a NO HEAT setting is probably a good thing to use to get the inside dried up fairly quickly. A warm water rinse (with perhaps some fingering) is usually all it takes to get the “deposits” out.

Conclusion:
Although it's not blatantly a compilation sleeve (Gauntlet, Primal, Tease, etc), the Luxe does have a lot of variation, and has quickly become a new favorite of mine (and apparently, other Fleshlight enthusiasts. Definitely a good choice for a first FLG purchase, especially if one have tried similar textures or the STU.

Forbidden Review

December 19th, 2015 (Forbidden Texture)

I got the Jenna Haze Forbidden in August 2014, albeit by mistake (I had ordered the Obsession, but a computer screw-up gave me this sleeve; on a side note, they did send a corrected sleeve that I unfortunately found out far too late that it was likely defective, and ended up tossing my Obsession). Despite this, it actually is a decent sleeve (and a bit of a collector’s item, since the original Forbidden for Jenna Haze has been replaced by Jenna Haze’s Lust.
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the butt orifice of Jenna Haze… well, it’s a butthole (Not going to lie, Jenna Haze has a nice ass, but you don't get all that with a FLG version). I will add that it’s nice that a bit of her vulva was included in the mold (to help maybe help you orient the Fleshlight to simulate sex from behind or from front).
Lube: Although I have over five (5) FLights (my personal minimum) with the Forbidden (in reality, closer to ten), I do FLy one additional time right before rating and reviewing to keep my memory fresh. On this review, I used Astroglide. I do have some FL Water lube, but since it’s unopened, I’ll wait to use it. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. Contrary to the “textbook” rule of anal sex in which more lube = better, The Forbidden doesn’t need a whole ton of lube, considering it’s overall smoothness.
Noise: Until the last 15 seconds, I didn’t hear squat out of this thing. Dead serious, this thing is quiet.
Penetration: Probably one of the most enjoyable considering smoother sleeves. The entrance is tighter than the rest of the sleeve (to simulate the sphincter and surrounding muscles, before a gentle undulating wave throughout. After the narrow opening, the gentle waves aren’t as noticeable in penetrating, but can still be enjoyable.
Intensity: If you are looking for an intense experience a la Destroya, Gauntlet, etc… prepare to be a bit disappointed. While the sleeve is still stimulating, the Forbidden basically sells on three points: realism, aiding in fulfilling a fantasy and helping with a bit of a build-up experience to cumming.
Orgasm: I haven’t had an earth-shattering orgasm with the Forbidden, but that’s not to say that blowing a load isn’t enjoyable. If you build-up your orgasm a bit, it can be more enjoyable, but for the most part, expect a pleasant and not-to-intense orgasm (and if you are able to fantasize, then you might get more enjoyment orgasming with the Forbidden)
Cleanup: Given the smooth inside of the sleeve, rinsing out the sleeve is sufficient to remove your (ahem) deposits. You can let this air dry, but a simple running a paper towel in and out of it will hasten the drying process considerably.

Conclusion:
I’m not super crazed for textures paired with butt orifices (though I have bought some in the past), and probably wouldn’t have gotten the Forbidden had it not been for a shipping mistake in my favor. It’s enjoyable, but not a high priority sleeve for me. However, those who are interested in simulating anal sex may really find value in it.

Gauntlet Review

December 17th, 2015 (Gauntlet Texture)

I received the Jesse Jane Gauntlet (in the Pirates Limited Edition case) as part of a Free FLG sleeve (and case) giveaway with a purchase of another FLG product (in this case, Angela White’s Indulge). Despite it being a freebie, I will give it a fair and honest review.
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the vulva of Jesse Jane does look quite pleasing, but one cannot help but think that it’s a little TOO perfect. Still pleasing, though.
Lube: Although I have over five (5) FLights (my personal minimum) with the Gauntlet (actually, it’s closer to twenty, if not more), I do FLy one additional time right before rating and review to keep my memory fresh. On this review, I used Astroglide. I do have some FL Water lube, but since it’s unopened, I’ll wait to use it. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. The Gauntlet doesn’t need a whole glut of lube, but you will need to a couple of seconds (either thrusting/stroking or fingering) to get the lube distributed enough to enjoy.
Noise: Unless you are literally in the same room with someone (probably awkward, unless you're dating that person), the Gauntlet doesn’t generate much noise to cause notice. It’s not silent, but not noticeably noisy.
Penetration: Think of a Lotus sleeve, and then edit the crap out of it by merging various textures and concepts together. You have the Gauntlet. You start with a narrow chamber which widens out towards the first Lotus “node”, which is a bit closer to the entrance than the Lotus (but not as close as the Mini-Lotus). You then enter a spiked chamber (kinda like the Primal with Destoya teeth, but straightened out) and then onwards to a bit of STU bumps, but by that part, you’re getting out of the range of “average” of cock size. Generally, each sensation is different and pleasurable (I find the first node to be quite enjoyable, I’m not quite able to get past the “teeth”.) With all of the texture variations, generally everyone will find at least one positive they will enjoy with the sleeve.
Intensity: Having many FLights with the Gauntlet, intensity does tend to vary. One is by speed. It goes without saying, the faster you go, generally the intensity does ratchet up. But if you hit textures just right (e.g. the “Lotus Node”), intensity can be just as high going slow as well. I do find the texture to be even MORE enjoyable going hands-free, so using a Shower Mount or other hands-free device is a definitive plus, and I would consider a near-necessity for this sleeve.
Orgasm: My mileage has varied orgasming with the Gauntlet, but the range is generally from nice to near knee-buckling. If you think you’re heading towards the latter, you might want to grab on to something, especially if you are availing yourself of the services of the Shower Mount in the shower. However, the past couple of times were somewhere in the middle of that range.
Cleanup: Not terrible, but not exactly rinse, pat-dry, let it air for two hours and be done. I’d recommend a paper towel to get the water out of the interior of the sleeve, but considering the nodes: do be careful so the sleeve doesn’t eat your towel and you have to retrieve pieces left over. If that doesn’t do it, run a blowdryer on NO heat (or use a fan) and circulate air at both ends of the sleeve to hasten drying.

Conclusion:
The Gauntlet was one of the first FLG sleeves that spawned the concept of a compilation sleeve, taking the best bits of each sleeve (Forbidden, Primal, Lotus, Destroya/Primal and STU). Although other sleeves have since surpassed the Gauntlet, newer “compilation” sleeves such as the Tease and Luxe owe their existence and success to the Gauntlet. For those looking for variation or a medley of textures, the Gauntlet is a smart choice.

Barracuda Review

December 14th, 2015 (Barracuda Texture)

I got the Lisa Ann Barracuda in May 2015 during a special for Lisa Ann’s birthday. Prior to getting into the Cyber Monday Sale this November/December, it was my most recent sleeve.
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the vulva and labia lips of Lisa Ann are well detailed and quite realistic. If this is what Lisa Ann’s ahem, “equipment” looks like at 40 something, then WOW.
Lube: Although I have over five (5) FLights (my personal minimum) with the Barracuda (After the pre-review FLight, this makes it 7 or 8 or so, the reason why it’s so few is due to the sleeve getting misplaced for a while), I do FLy one additional time right before rating and reviewing to keep my memory fresh. On this review, I used Astroglide. I do have some FL Water lube, but since it’s unopened, I’ll wait to use it. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. For the Barracuda, don’t be surprised if you need a bit more lube, at least initially. Once lubed up, the bristles of the Barracuda will keep things slippery (think of it as a car wash facility, but for your cock).
Noise: Fairly quiet until the end, and even then, not entirely noisy. Didn’t disrupt the “motion of the ocean” or focus on the buildup to the orgasm.
Penetration: When you penetrate, you quickly enter the first chamber of bristles, which gives you a slight resistance to the narrow “node” that follows, which is succeeded by the main chamber of bristles. Like the Destroya, you get the feeling you will be battling to contain your orgasm, but unlike the Destroya, the Barracuda is a bit softer, so if you go a bit slower, you do have the possibility to get some more “buildup” before you cum.
Intensity: Depends on how you take to FLying with the Barracuda. If you take a fast FLight,it does have a bit of intensity. But if you go slower, the intensity dials back a bit, at least until your sexual energy builds up towards orgasm. Although there isn’t as much “suction power” with the Barracuda, it doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t there. Towards the end of your FLight (as you get ready to cum), the intensity does ramp up on slower FLights, leading to a great orgasm. Although the texture isn’t realistic, it does feel a bit as if you are making love to Lisa Ann, as someone who knows how to get you turned on and how to get you off.
Orgasm: With the Barracuda, I came fairly quickly, but not without an enjoyable buildup that allowed for a pleasurable sensation of cumming. I did enjoy a bit of post-cum stroking afterwards before pulling out to clean-up the sleeve.
Cleanup: Surprisingly, despite the many bristles, the sleeve is fairly looser than the Destroya, and thus a bit easier to run fingers and water into the sleeve to clean it up. You still have to be thorough about it, though. A paper towel helps (and doesn’t tend to tear apart unless you are rushing it through the sleeve) to dry out the sleeve quickly.

Conclusion:
This is one sleeve that I am not completely sure why people knock it. It’s a great sleeve if you know how to use it, and can be quite rewarding. Of course, the Barracuda isn’t a super “top rated” sleeve, but it shouldn’t be disregarded, either. Probably not a beginner’s choice, but an intermediate to experienced FLight master will likely appreciate it.

Destroya Review

December 13th, 2015 (Destroya Texture)

Stoya’s Destroya entered my collection in March 2014, and is the longest lasting sleeve I have (I lost an STU in 2011 and the Teagan Love Humps in early 2015, both acquired before Destroya).
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the vulva of Stoya looks disturbingly real, in a nice way. Then again, everything about Stoya is natural (she’s turned down breast augmentation and is quite natural all the way around).
Lube: Although I have well over five (5) FLights (my personal minimum) with the Destroya (probably closer to 15 I can count for certain and up to maybe as much as 25, given how long I’ve had it), I do FLy one additional time right before rating and reviewing to keep my memory fresh. On this review, I used Astroglide. I do have some FL Water lube, but since it’s unopened, I’ll wait to use it. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. For the Destroya, it’s a bit of a delicate balance. Too much lube and it may belch out of the smaller end cap, and the texture may lose a bit of intensity. Too little, and although the material is soft, the “fangs” of the sleeve will rub on your cock mercilessly, and that might be a bit much. Err on more lube if you are not sure.
Noise: A tad bit noisier that other sleeves. Again, this is not anything super noticeable, so it’s not a super hard knock on the sleeve for that.
Penetration: Initially, entering the very first part of the sleeve is not super intense. You do know you are penetrating, though. However, once you get to the spherical “fang” chamber, you know you are in a losing battle for control of your orgasm. All of this is very pleasurable and enjoyable, however.
Intensity: This. Sleeve. Is. Intense. The “fang” chamber and the second portion of “fangs” have one goal in mind, stimulate your cock via the head and shaft immediately below it as quickly as possible to force you to cum. You can drag it out by going slower (or if well endowed, you can push forward past it, but the narrowing chamber will get to you, eventually), but Destroya is here to destroy your defenses (hehe) and bring you to submission via orgasm. If you are on the smaller size end of cock size, don’t think you get a respite if you CAN negotiate with the “fangs”: The narrowing ribbed chamber becomes a suction chamber, roping you in and intensifying your sensations.
Orgasm: Generally, the orgasm is quick and enjoyable with the Destroya. As there isn’t much latitude for a buildup, you may not have much toe-curlers and eye-rollers with the Destroya, but you will feel a need to stop penetrating and pull out after you cum: the sleeve is too intense for post cum thrusting/stroking.
Cleanup: This is the worst part, and the major factor holding the Destroya back from the stratosphere of sleeves. The “fangs” and texture gives some issue in just rinsing the sleeve out, you may need to finger the Destroya (hehe) to get your deposits and lube out. Also, dry time can be a bit on the longer side, which can be pesky for some impatient folks. I have found blow drying the sleeve with NO HEAT, (just air) along with a paper towel at one end is effective in pushing some of the moisture out, and running a paper towel through one half, and then the other half also works best (if you run a paper towel straight through, don’t get surprised if the towel tears and gets partially eaten by the Destroya. You will have to retrieve the torn pieces.) However, for utility versus effort to clean, it’s still a good sleeve.

Conclusion:
Originally one of Fleshlight's greatest sleeves, Destroya been surpassed by a few recent sleeves (which is no surprise, as Fleshlight is always trying to go for bigger, better and raising the bar). However, it is still a worthy acquisition, especially if you are looking for quick orgasmic release. Those wanting longer, less intense FLights might find the sleeve a bit challenging to their tastes.

Indulge Review

December 12th, 2015 (Indulge Texture)

I got the Angela White Indulge back in December 2014, along with a surprise FLG product in a 2 for 1 deal (which ended up being a Pirates Edition of Jessie Jane’s Gauntlet).
Aesthetics: As a fellow FA member commented, aesthetics should be considered with the overall review. I thoroughly agree, and although 90% of the sleeve is the same, the vulva of Angela White is thoroughly detailed, down to every crease of her lips. And wow, quite appealing for a replica.
Lube: Although I have well over five (5) FLights (my personal minimum) with the Indulge (probably closer to 20), I do FLy one additional time right before rating and reviewing to keep my memory fresh. On this final FLight before posting this review, I used Astroglide. I do have some FL Water lube, but since it’s unopened, I’ll wait to use it. I’ve found that regardless of lube, both tend to have lasting use and staying power in slickness and consistency, though Astroglide does tend to get a bit less slick in a shower for a FLight a la Shower Mount. For the Indulge, Lube usage was on the more efficient side, as although there is a significant amount of textures, most of the textures are smooth enough in nature so lube does not get trapped or bunched up in awkward points, forcing a relubrication break.
Noise: A bit more on the quieter side.
Penetration: Not super intense, but quite enjoyable. Penetrating generally feels like entering a partially ajar gate with smooth edges, and an opening wide enough just for you to pass with some brushing against the sides (the large spherical bumps simulate this), followed by softer walls that narrowly guide you through to the next ajar gate, which you can get across if you are long enough, which then follows a real narrowing of the sleeve.
Intensity: As the surfaces are smooth, the intensity starts off rather mild, but as your cock expands as you get closer to orgasm, those bumps and “walls” start to become quite noticeable (though not as dramatic as say, Love Humps/Bulletproof), and help smoothly expedite you to orgasm if you should wish, but you can change your rhythm and thrusts to delay, if you wish.
Orgasm: I’ve had some really good orgasms with the Indulge. It’s textured enough to really feel it in the buildup to orgasm, but smooth enough to permit some post cum thrusting/stroking. Although personally, I can't endure a whole lot though without calling the FLight completed. The final FLight before this review, the orgasm wasn’t an eye-roller, but that’s probably an issue with going with stroking rather than hands free, so I won’t hold that against the sleeve.
Cleanup: Save for one minor mishap in which one of the larger bumps once appeared to have a minor amount of mold/dirt/something not normal that was easily rectified with rubbing alcohol, cleaning is fairly a breeze. A fast stream of warm water tends to get the job done quickly. I am a wee bit impatient with drying times, so I do run a paper towel through, and it tends to get it dry enough for storage without harm.

Conclusion:
I would definitely recommend this sleeve to others. It's got a pleasurably semi-intense texture that won't beat up your cock, allows you time to regain control and extend your FLight, and it looks and feels good.
