You’ve decided to take the plunge and purchase a Fleshlight. Congratulations, you won’t regret this move. The Fleshlight brand has become synonymous with the very best in male masturbators. Their iconic flashlight casing is discrete yet instantly recognising to anyone in the know.
If you want to upgrade your solo experience, increase stamina and enjoy a fresh experience every time you pop off the lid. But before you get carried away, there are a few things first time Fleshlight users should know to help them get the most out of their new toy…
Before you can use your Fleshlight for the first time, you need to make sure you’ve purchased the right Fleshlight for your needs. There are so many different types of Fleshlight, you’d be forgiven for getting lost in the digital aisles.
Think about what you want to achieve from your Fleshlight and work backwards. If sensitivity is an issue and you want to be able to last longer in the bedroom, choosing the best Fleshlight for tightness could be a wise move. You could also choose a Fleshlight with a highly detailed inner sleeve such as the Lisa Ann Barracuda, which features line after line of intense pleasure nubs.
For those who want a less cumbersome Fleshlight experience, the open-ended Quickshot Vantage might be more appropriate. If you are to fully enjoy the Fleshlight experience, you should be sure to select the right model.
You’ve selected your Fleshlight, hit order and waited patiently. Now it’s sitting in front of you, waiting for you to get it out and play. While you might be tempted to tear it out of the box and discard everything but your Fleshlight, you should pay close attention to the instructions.
This will not only give you pointers on how to make the most of your sleeve, it will also give you essential maintenance tips. Caring for your Fleshlight properly is the best way to make sure it stays hygienic and ready for action.
Before you use your Fleshlight for the first time, make sure you have fully washed it and allowed it to dry. Always use a drop of lube with your Fleshlight to help enhance the experience. But don’t go overboard. Less is more when it comes to lube and it will allow you to enjoy a more realistic experience.
Selecting the right lube for your Fleshlight experience is essential. The inner sleeve is made from a top-secret blend of high-quality mineral oil and rubber polymers. The best lube for Fleshlight products is a water-based lubricant. This will help to prevent interactions between the material which can lead to the premature breakdown of your Fleshlight.
Fleshlight offers its own brand of lubricant, and most Fleshlight models include a sample sachet so you can enjoy your new toy right out of the box. You could try a simple water-based lubricant, or opt for their warming lubricant to discover new depths of sensation.
Cleaning up after using your Fleshlight is quick and simple. The first time you do it will feel fiddly, complicated and unnecessary, but you’ll soon get your technique down. And trust us when we say you definitely want to get your technique down. Leaving a Fleshlight uncleaned is one way to guarantee mould, bacteria and other nasties very quickly destroy your favourite toy. There are a few simple steps for cleaning your Fleshlight:
Remove the hard case
Wash the case with soap and water
Put the soap away and rinse the sleeve with warm water
Use a finger to agitate the internal structure
Plug one end with your hand and allow it to fill with warm water
Cover the other end with your other hand and shake
Spray with toy cleaner
Allow is to dry completely before reassembling
This might sound like a lot of steps, but it’s a small price to pay for keeping your new favourite toy safe and hygienic.
No, we’re not saying that your Fleshlight has a subscription service. Renewal powder is used to help maintain that fleshy feeling. After a while, repeatedly washing away lube and bodily fluids can leave the Fleshlight sleeve feeling tacky rather than plushy and smooth.
Renewal powder helps to maintain that realistic skin feeling. All you need to do is wash your Fleshlight as normal and then sprinkle the powder inside. Give it a little shake to make sure all of the surfaces are covered and then shake away any excess powder. Your Fleshlight will then feel brand new.
