Fleshlight Flight Review
A short time ago, I ventured down a path that has changed how I will pleasure myself until the day I die. No longer will I only have a choice between my right hand or my left hand. And my left hand wasn’t really much of a choice anyway. The Fleshlight I purchased outlined in my first purchase experience was a major game changer for me and has left me wanting more. Now that I have armed myself with the wisdom of purchasing a Fleshlight and all the available configurations, choosing one this time will be a cakewalk. Hell, I had already decided on my second purchase as I was making the first one. It was just a matter putting together a couple bucks to support my new hobby.
That day has come and I pulled the trigger on the Fleshlight Flight.
Decisions, Decisions, Decisions
I really thought that the purchase this time would be really quick and easy, seeing as how I already knew what I wanted. I wanted to go with the Fleshlight Flight because I found the classic Fleshlight to be a little on the large side. As I mentioned in my previous post, I am exactly average when it comes to my cock, so those extra couple of inches seemed like a waste. I just thought that a Fleshlight that more closely mirrored my actual size made sense. I also do a lot of travelling. Lugging around a toy that took up less room in my luggage really appealed to me as well. So, it’s off to fleshlight.com for me.
Shit. I totally forgot that there were two different Fleshlight Flights to choose from – the Instructor and the Pilot. Now I have to make another decision… At least this one won’t be so bad. There’s only two differences between the Flight and the Instructor; the color and the sleeve. The Pilot is black and has “Different textures (bumps, fingers, ribs) as well as canal width changes for high-flying stimulation”. The Instructor is white and has a “Sleeve designed to help build stamina and increase male performance.” The descriptions are taken straight from the Fleshlight website only because I have no idea how I would describe them myself. I will, however, go out on a limb and say the Pilot has an uncanny resemblance to the Destroya, and the Instructor looks very similar to the Stamina Training Unit.
I put the Fleshlight Instructor in my cart and checked out. Building stamina and increasing my performance sounds like its right up my alley. A reminder from my first post – it will be shipped in a discreet, plain, brown box from a company named “ILF, LLC”. The same company is the billing company on your credit card as well. No one will know you just spent money on a sexually stimulating toy.
As I mentioned previously, the main reason I opted for the Flight was because of it’s weight and overall size. So, how does it compare? The Classic clocks in at a total length and weight of 9.8 inches (24.9 cm) and 1.2 lbs (560 g), respectively. Not a lightweight by any stretch of the imagination. By contrast, the Flight measures in at 7.5 inches (19.1 cm) overall and a considerably lighter 0.8 lbs (355 g). That makes the Flight more than 2 inches shorter and .4 lbs lighter which is a substantial reduction in mass. And even though it is smaller and lighter, it still has that same high quality feel to it that I had talked about in regards to the original Fleshlight. I know that this is a premium product just by how it feels in my hand.
The design of the case has had a complete overhaul as well. It no longer looks like a fake over-sized flashlight and instead has taken on a much more subtle appearance. They have done away with the raised lettering and grips and in their place have molded golf ball dimples. I feel like I could actually leave this out in public view and my family wouldn’t be the wiser. At first, I really thought the newly designed case would be easy to lose my grip on. If anything though, it feels more natural in my hand and much easier to grasp and I don’t think it’s going to end up flying across the room. I guess we’ll see if that holds up when I’m furiously whacking it…
The sleeve is molded from the same exclusive SuperSkin material that made Fleshlight famous. You got 6 inches of penetrable length. The orifice for the sleeve is nondescript and colorless and that is the only option for the Flight. I imagine they do this to try to further mask the presence of your sex toy. Although, if someone has gotten so far as to opening it up and looking inside, you probably have bigger issues you will want to deal with. Either that, or your evening is about to get very, very fun.
The Feels, Man
So now we know all about what it looks like and how it feels in your hand. The question, and the REAL reason you are here reading this article, is how good does it feel around your cock?
Well, first of all, you HAVE to lube up. I know this is probably common sense with the Fleshlight by now, but I just feel like I have the responsibility to make sure I say this. So LUBE UP! Now, the Instructor sleeve has two different textures. The first two thirds of the sleeve consists of multiple rows and columns of bumps. The last one third is the exact opposite – soft, smooth, and texture-less. What this combination creates is an intense massaging sensation from the base of your cock right up to immediately below your head with shallower strokes. Longer strokes will give you that massaging feeling encompassing your head as well.
I can see why Fleshlight describes the texture as designed to build endurance and stamina – it’s easy to go hard when you need more stimulation, while just as simple to slow down and shorter your strokes once you’re nearing the edge. For some reason, I expected it to be tighter than it was. I’m not saying this was a bad thing, because it’s not. I’m just making note of this because my expectations were different than reality.
Call The Maid It’s Time For Clean Up
If ONLY I had a maid to clean up after me. You know, one of those sexy maids in those sexy outfits. Mind you, if I had one of those, I probably wouldn’t be using my Fleshlight as much…
Back on topic. It’s clean up time. You go through the same process for the Flight as you do for the original. Take off the ends caps and remove the sleeve. Rinse the sleeve and the case with warm water, spray down the sleeve with the FleshWash disinfecting spray, and let it dry. Just a friendly reminder to not use any soaps or household cleaning products as these will cause the SuperSkin to decay. Boom. Clean. Now, here is the best part – instead of having to wait several hours for the classic Fleshlight to dry, my Flight was dry WITHIN AN HOUR. This is a huge improvement and might be one of the deciding factors in which Fleshlight will be my go to.
The reason I opted to go with the Fleshlight Pilot was because of it’s size. I am an average male. My penis is very average (5.6 inch length 1.5 inch girth). I figured the Fleshlight Classic was much more Fleshlight than I would ever need. There are many things it does very well, but there are also things that I can see it lacking.
The overall size is, without a doubt, a plus. I can travel with it easily and it does not take up any more space than it needs to. It fits in my hand better.The case is more discreet and looks less like a sex toy than the original Fleshlight. The texture of the sleeve was well suited for the Flight and feels wonderful around my cock. And the sleeve requires considerably less drying time.
However, there are only two sleeves available for this Fleshlight. I feel like they are potentially limited the amount people that would buy a Flight simply because of the limited selection of sleeves. As it sits, I will not be investing more money into the Flight line up as there just aren’t any choices for alternate sleeves.
If I could go back, would I have still spent the $49.95? Yes I would. It’s a solid compact alternative to the classic. Would I say this will be my go to? I don’t think so. The wide options available for the classic are just way too appealing to me.
But that’s just me.
