What is a Fleshlight?

Fleshlight is a manufacturer and brand of male masturbation aids and artificial vaginas designed for sperm collection by mimicking sexual penetration. These male masturbators were created and patented by Steve Shubin in Austin, Texas in the late 90’s (1998). Fleshlights have become one of the best selling sex toys for men, and are named after the flesh-like material, called cyberskin, and the plastic case that it is housed in that looks like a torch. Due to their appearance fleshlights have numerous nicknames like ‘sex torch’.

Fundamentally, Fleshlights are just male masturabtors with a hard outer case. Fleshlights have a thermoplastic inner sleeve which has been called cyberskin. The material warms as it is rubbed, so the more friction that is made the warmer this sleeve feels, making masturbation even more pleasurable. The sleeves feature different textures that feel different during penetration, as well as different orifices like mouth, anus, and most popularly vaginas.

Fleshlight have also products a variety of alternative models such as Fleshjacks, which is a range of gay sex toys. They also released a range called Fleshlight Girls, which is a range of artificial vaginas that have been moulded from porn start vaginas.
