Happy New Year everyone! To kick off 2016 I’m starting with an all-new Fleshlight review, courtesy of my friends over at Fleshjack. Towards the end of last year Fleshlight unveiled a brand new product called the “Quickshot“, immediately catching everyone’s attention with its two different designs, and they were kind enough to send over the vantage model for me to review. I was lucky enough to have mine arrive just before Christmas, which goes to show that it’s not only Santa who knows exactly what every boy wants to play with on those long Winter nights.
The basic design of the Quickshot looks a bit like a barrel, and with its caps on it measures 4 3/8″ tall by 2 3/4″ wide, making it the sort of size you can conveniently store in the top drawer of your bedside table. With an end cap removed it does look a lot like a traditional Fleshlight, only sans the anatomical orifice, so if you prefer the more discreet Flight approach then it’ll appeal to you. The Quickshot does in fact have two end caps, both of which are intended to be removed during use, and the orifices are identical on each side, though this does seem a little bit like a missed opportunity to incorporate some variety. In the absence of the caps the body of the toy is reduced to essentially a band of black plastic, with the Superskin insert held inside rather like an elongated doughnut. The openings in the insert are around 3/4″ of an inch in diameter, promising to be nice and snug, and this size continues through the internal canal of the toy, with the exception of the textured areas. The texture is formed by columns of semi-circular nubs, separated from each other by shallow channels, which gently spiral down the length of the canal. There are five columns in total, each comprised of five individual and evenly-spaced nubs, for a total of 25 overall. It’s quite a unique texture compared to the others that I’m familiar with, seemingly crafted especially for the Quickshot.
There are a number of techniques you can employ to make the most of the toy’s design: you can focus entirely on the head of the penis, leaving it in the toy at all times, you can employ long strokes so that the penis goes in one side and pops out the other, or you can use the toy mainly around the shaft, occasionally teasing the head. It’s also very well suited as a couples toy if you wish to incorporate it with a blowjob. The texture of the Vantage is highly enjoyable during thrusting, and with every stroke I could feel the semi-circular nubs flicking up and down across the head of my penis, and especially along the all important frenulum. It even created a rather nice massaging action when used solely against the shaft. Again it’s a significant difference to the Boost which really didn’t impress me all that much. To be realistic it’s still not up at that incredible level that you can expect from the long and varied textures inside something such as the Flight, but it’s still very very enjoyable, and those stimulating little flicks from the nubs will have you regularly coming back for more. The other factor of course, and a unique point for the Quickshot, is that sensation of the head emerging out of the end of the tight orifice, and then being pulled back through it in reverse. It really does encourage you to make long strokes to get that whole combination of sensations in sequence as that really magnifies the pleasure.
In terms of prolonged use the Quickshot does have some drawbacks over the traditional Fleshlight, namely with regard to lube. Because the Quickshot isn’t a closed environment, a significant area of your lube-covered penis will be exposed to the air at any time, where the moisture will rapidly evaporate. For this reason it really is important to experiment with the lubes you own to find which lasts the longest under these conditions. Naturally the longer you use the Quickshot the more times you’re liable to find the need to reapply lube, as it will get a bit stubborn when things aren’t slick enough. The other thing to consider is that when you climax with the Quickshot you’ll want a tissue handy, as it doesn’t catch anything in the way that a regular Fleshlight would, but that does bring me onto my next point.
In terms of quality I do have one minor point to raise, and that would be that the internal texture of my Vantage is slightly deformed in places. Two and a half of the semi circular nubs are missing off the bottom of one of the columns, and one and a half off the top of another, leaving those areas almost completely smooth. The reason I classify this as minor is because I wasn’t even aware of it during use, I only noticed it whilst washing it prior to writing the review, so it clearly had no impact on how it felt. The other reason would be that it’s actually the first time I’ve encountered anything like this in all the many Fleshjack products I’ve reviewed, so they have a very good track record in my book.
Happy December everyone, and this month I’m back with an all-new Fleshlight review, courtesy of the folks at Lovehoney. A few weeks ago Fleshlight unveiled their brand new product the “Quickshot” and naturally I wanted to give it a whirl, so I got in touch with my friends at Lovehoney and they kindly agreed to send me one to review. Believe it or not this is actually the first new Fleshlight mastubator I’ve reviewed in almost three years, since the Sword back in January 2013.
The basic design of the Quickshot looks a bit like a barrel, and with its caps on it measures 4 3/8″ tall by 2 3/4″ wide, making it the sort of size you can conveniently store in the top drawer of your bedside table. With an end cap removed it does look a lot like a traditional Fleshlight, only sans the anatomical orifice, so if you prefer the more discreet Flight approach then it’ll appeal to you. The Quickshot does in fact have two end caps, both of which are intended to be removed during use, and the orifices are identical on each side, though this does seem a little bit like a missed opportunity to incorporate some variety. In the absence of the caps the body of the toy is reduced to essentially a band of black plastic, with the Superskin insert held inside rather like an elongated doughnut. The openings in the insert are around 3/4″ of an inch in diameter, promising to be nice and snug, and this size continues through the internal canal of the toy, with the exception of the textured areas. The texture is formed by intermittent horizontal ridges laid out in groups of three, and punctuated occasionally by a shallow nub between the rows. It’s something of a unique texture compared to the others that I’m familiar with, seemingly crafted especially for the Quickshot.
In terms of prolonged use the Quickshot does have some drawbacks over the traditional Fleshlight, namely with regard to lube. Because the Quickshot isn’t a closed environment, a significant area of your lube-covered penis will be exposed to the air at any time, where the moisture will rapidly evaporate. The longer you use the Quickshot the more times you’ll need to reapply lube, because it does get quite stubborn when things aren’t slick enough, and that tightness and the texture create a lot of friction together. It’s not a huge deal, unless you’re very frugal with your lube, but it can disrupt your rhythm a little, and after a number of reapplications things can start to get a little messy. The other thing to consider is that when you climax with the Quickshot you’ll want a tissue handy, as it doesn’t catch anything in the way that a regular Fleshlight would, but that does bring me onto my next point.
The dildo is precisely what you’d expect if you’ve ever experienced one from Fleshjack before; an incredibly detailed and realistic replica of a penis. It’s the most like-life facsimile of a body part you could imagine, and the closest you’re going to be able to get to exploring Kris Evans’ manhood in all it’s three-dimensional glory. No matter how you choose to survey it, by eye, by touch, by mouth, in terms of pure visual authenticity nothing comes close to what Fleshjack do, and they really are the best on the market. That’s not all, however, because they do a credible job of making sure they feel real too.
The shaft of the dildo sprouts out of the balls revealing its impressive girth, enticing you to wrap a hand around it and give it a squeeze. It’s only 5 5/8″ in circumference, which doesn’t seem like an awful lot compared to the Dolph Lambert which is pushing 6″, but nevertheless it feels thick between your fingers and palm. It’s a beautiful straight shaft pointing up towards the sky, covered in a smooth skin where you can faintly make out the grain. There’s plenty of other rich detailing to catch your eye too; a few surface capillaries appear throughout the skin, while the larger veins meander up either side of the dildo before wrapping around underneath and converging towards the frenulum. Toward the top of the shaft there’s a ridge of bunched up skin where the retracted foreskin lies loosely 3/8″ behind the head, and this continues around to form a pronounced frenulum which attaches to the base of the glans.
The head is probably my least favourite part of the dildo. The shape of it is mostly fine, though it is perhaps a little narrow and could be plumper, but what I really dislike is the texture. To me the glans of a penis should be perfectly smooth and shiny, that’s what looks healthy and attractive, but the head of the Kris Evans dildo is covered completely in little bumps. To start with I thought I’d find this really unappealing, but it’s actually tolerable in person while still not ideal. It’s mostly a visual issue, because while it may not look that aesthetically pleasing it’s not a great bother to the touch, or even if you’re inclined to put it into your mouth. Aside from the textured surface the only other point of detail on the head is the opening of the urinary meatus, which is rather small and shallow, and not especially noticeable.
The dildo comes in Fleshjack‘s standard cardboard box packaging which I’ve spoken of a million times. It’s great display packaging, but it’s too large for practical home storage, though the photos on the exterior do make you somewhat reluctant to toss it out immediately.
Alternatively you can buy it directly from Fleshjack.
The dildo is manufactured from 100% platinum silicone in Fleshjack’s standard pale flesh-tone. It’s the same softer silicone silicone that they’ve been using in all their dildos for the past few years, since moving away from the type I spoke of in my Pierre Fitch review. It’s a really lovely material to squeeze as it has a lot of give in the surface, and it’s easy to bend back and forth, and even twist or stretch slightly. It reminds me somewhat of that same feeling I get from the Tantus Amsterdam, and that’s part of why I like it so much. The quality of construction is also completely faultless, something which I’ve come to expect from these toys, and I cannot find a single flaw on it to complain about, nor is there a mould-line in sight.
As is the standard with any Fleshjack dildo the Marcus Mojo is exceptionally detailed, and unquestionably the closest anatomical replica you can currently get in a sex toy. I’ve yet to find any other company which has been able to duplicate a penis as faithfully as Fleshjack, and they really must be recognised for that. The silicone exquisitely captures all of the finer points of the human penis, including the grain of the skin, small veins along the surface of the shaft, and every wrinkle and hair follicle of the scrotum. You really could spend a significant amount of time examining every inch of its surface, and there’d always be a little something new there to see.
The dildo starts off with a modestly-sized yet nicely-shaped head which sits perched atop the shaft, and which exhibits this quirky feature of an almost “pouty” meatus protruding from the opening to the urethra. The head itself has quite a lot of texture to it, both visually and to the touch, and especially when compared with far smoother-feeling Kevin Warhol, making it look comparatively older. Just behind the head there’s a little remnant of frenulum which joins onto the shaft and provides a small piece of raised detail. The shaft itself is rather a interesting shape because it does a lot of different things at the same time. It curves all the way around to the left hand side like a banana, whilst also managing to curve up slightly at the tip, and throughout its entire length it’s not even remotely uniform in thickness. Directly behind the head it measures as little as 4 1/2″ around, but it steadily increases in size until it’s almost 5 1/4″ right at the point where it joins up with the balls, and it’s very much this aspect of the shape that leads to it feeling smaller than the Kevin Warhol in hand. The surface of the shaft features a huge amount of detail, namely in the form of veins which cover a large proportion of it. These bulging blood vessels leave the shaft looking and feeling extremely bumpy and textured, far more so than any of the other dildos that I’ve encountered from this range, and that’s something to bear in mind depending on how smooth you like your dildos. The balls that sit at the base of the shaft aren’t exactly the most enticing shape I’ve ever seen, looking like one half of of a small avocado, but they’re a reasonable size and quite unobtrusive. Overall it’s a debatably attractive dildo, at least from my perspective; from some angles it looks cute, like an object that’s small but perfectly formed, and from other angles it just looks a bit lumpy and twisted about, but it’s definitely unique and definitely Marcus Mojo. I have a certain fondness for it, but I do prefer the Kevin Warhol, and that’s really an individual matter to consider when choosing a smaller Fleshjack dildo.
When it comes down to how the dildo performs in use it’s actually remarkably similar to the Kevin Warhol, just to draw that comparison again for only the half-dozenth time. When you pick up a dildo like this you’re not going to be under any illusion that it’s going to be the most filling toy in the world, but somehow dildos of this type hold the secret that they’re actually really good for prostate stimulation, and that’s a secret that I’m always overjoyed to uncover. Because of its size it’s especially well suited as a starter dildo, or just for someone who has no desire to ever go big, so it’s good to be able to pack all that stimulation into such a small package, and be able to offer it to a wider range of potential users.
The tip of the dildo eases gently into the body thanks to its shape, and you feel a small bump from the coronal ridge as the sphincter passes over it and down onto the shaft. As you push the dildo deeper into the body you become quite aware of the veiny textured surface of the shaft, but thanks to the soft nature of the silicone it’s not an overwhelming sensation, though it does help to use a little extra lube and keep the muscle fully relaxed at all times. Due to the modest length of the dildo it’s quite easy to insert the whole thing in one go, and even sit down on top of it like a butt plug without causing any discomfort to yourself.
As always there are a couple of ways that you can opt to use the dildo; the balls at the base give a nice low centre of gravity, so you can stand it upright somewhere and ride it without it toppling over, or alternatively they make a really nice handle to grab onto and manually thrust with, whatever suits you best. If you prefer the riding option then it can be handy to prop it up on a pillow or something first, just to give it a little extra height whilst you’re using it. The amount of flex in the material means that the dildo can bend around all inside the body and gives a really comfortable ride, but it also holds its shape well enough that if you accidentally slip off the end of it then you can sit right back down without having to worry about guiding it into place.
My favourite discovery from thrusting with the dildo is that it works a treat on the prostate. This isn’t really something I should be surprised by, as it pretty much mirrors my experience with the Kevin Warhol dildo, but the truth is that I never really know how these toys are going to work out until I try them first hand. There was also a time not so long ago when I thought that I needed something big and bulbous to hit my prostate, so there are discoveries aplenty. I find that the best way to work on the prostate with the Marcus Mojo is to thrust quickly; it’s that constant back and forth action that has the flexible shaft bending around inside you and massaging the prostate with each stroke. It actually doesn’t even matter which way around you have the dildo inserted; with the tip curving backwards towards your spine it’s the middle of the shaft that rubs the prostate as you thrust, and with it facing the opposite direction it’s that coronal ridge that gets you on each stroke. I can’t help but feel that the veiny texture of the shaft also plays a part, much in the way that the crosses on the Tantus Amsterdam can be felt. Because it’s a fast thrusting dildo it also helps that it’s a short dildo, because with long dildos you always have to hold yourself back a little, just in case you slip and plough straight into the top of the rectum with it. The worst that can happen here is that the balls of the dildo bump into your perineum. Obviously the downside to the dildo is that it’s not all that filling. I admitted at the start that I am a bit of a size queen, but it’s not purely a visual thing, I also like to feel a bit of a stretch; the larger plugs are my friend. The thing is, the size is something you only really miss right at the start. Once you start thrusting and get that sense of what it’s doing to your prostate, you really don’t give any further thought to what it might be lacking. It completely captivates your attention with what’s good about it. That means that it’s going to be a treat for a beginner who needs it to be small, and equally for someone like me who typically goes bigger.
The dildo comes packaged inside a cardboard box, but something a little more than just an ordinary box. The box is black for the most part, and adorned with various brand logos and images of Marcus holding his dildo, but the front of the box is actually a door which can be opened. The flap is held down with velcro, but once opened you can see the contents of the box inside clearly through a plastic window. The dildo is held securely inside the box by a plastic tray which is moulded to the shape of it. On the whole the packaging is nice and it’s perfectly suited to storing the dildo in long term.
So for the inevitable conclusion. We’ve already proven before that smaller dildos can equal a good time anally, and this is no different, so I’m going to treat this as a bit of a weigh up of the Marcus Mojo versus the Kevin Warhol. They’re both in the same sort of size category, so I see this as the main choice that people will be contemplating. As far as I’m concerned they both perform pretty equally in the prostate department, so what decides it will be down to other factors. If you prefer a little more texture then go for the Marcus. If you prefer your dildos to be smoother then it’s the Kevin for you. If you prefer the look and feel of a circumcised penis then go with the Marcus. If you prefer a foreskin on your dildo then choose Kevin. What it’s probably going to come down to though is which porn star you prefer, because I know that’s what sways me when I buy these. Personally I’m drawn to the Kevin a little more; I think he’s the cuter guy and has the better-looking dick, but if you’re more a Marcus fan then I still give it my recommendation. It’s another fab dildo from Fleshjack, suited to everyone who likes their toys on the smaller side.
