Fleshlight Quickshot Vantage

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.

Catch the review below!

The Quickshot marks the most significant change to Fleshlight’s masturbator design since the company’s inception back in the 90s. It eschews the traditional large bulky case for something much more compact, and akin to some of the other “pocket pussys” you see on the market. The first time I saw it though, I couldn’t help but think back to a viral video from last year where a lady by the name of “Auntie Angel” taught the world how to turn a grapefruit into a sex toy, and gave everyone watching it a good laugh in the process. I like to think of the Quickshot as the professional evolution of that concept.
The Quickshot is available in two different versions: the Vantage and the Boost. The difference between them is largely cosmetic, with the Boost having a black case and a metallic-grey insert, while the Vantage has a clear case and a clear insert allowing you a clearer view of the action, but there’s also a slight difference to the internal texture. One of the things that might come to mind if you have any prior experience with Fleshlights / Fleshjacks is how the clear inserts tend to be more tacky to the touch compared to other colours. In this case I can say that it’s a moot point when comparing the Vantage to the Boost, as the grey insert is equal in its stickiness, so it needn’t be a factor in your purchasing decision

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.

Using the Quickshot is very straightforward and requires no special preparation other than a bit of waterbased lube. It’s worth applying a squirt of lube to the exterior of the orifice, as well as internally, as this’ll aid with initial insertion. The Superskin is a wonderfully soft and stretchy material, and you can feel it expand as you enter the toy, but it still feels pleasantly snug. The thing that restricts just how much the insert can adjust to accommodate you is the diameter of the plastic band, as this is where the toy feels tightest. What was interesting to me was that on the whole the Vantage felt less tight than the Boost, and in my case that was a bonus. Thrusting felt much more fluid and not as though I was having to fight against something, so I’d say the Vantage is far more suited to anyone packing a little more girth.

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.

One of my favourite things about the Quickshot is that it’s so easy to clean, and that’s not something you’ll hear anyone say about Fleshlight’s other masturbators. It’s as simple as popping the SuperSkin insert out of the plastic case, submerging it in a basin of warm water, and agitating it a little to remove any lube etc. After that it’s just a matter of leaving the insert somewhere to dry before you reassemble it, and it dries ever so quickly thanks to the open-ended design and relatively short body. It has to be the most hassle-free product that Fleshlight have come up with, and that’s a major selling point for it. You’re able to use it as frequently as you like because there’s no need to worry about the clean up afterwards. As much as I love my other Fleshjacks, there’s always a debate that goes on before getting one out “do I want a really good orgasm enough to go through the washing, cornstarching, and days of mould-preventing ventilation afterwards?” On the subject of cornstarch, it’s entirely optional with the Quickshot. As I mentioned earlier the material is sticky, but it still pops back into the case easily enough that it’s not a big deal. Personally I don’t bother.

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.

Overall the Quickshot Vantage is a great little toy, and I love the fact that they’ve incorporated all the Fleshlight technology into something so convenient and much more accessibly-priced. Somewhat amusingly my two main criticisms of the Boost were the tightness and the texture, both of which have been fixed with the Vantage, so it’s simply a matter of picking the right model, and I’m grateful that I was able to try both. If you’re looking to upgrade your masturbation session to something beyond just your faithful hand, then the Quickshot Vantage is a great way to do that without a lot of hassle and without breaking the bank. It’s really pleasurable and well designed, so I’d definitely recommend it.
Thanks to Fleshjack for providing me with the Quickshot Vantage. You can grab one now from their website, and they’ll ship it directly to you direct from their Locations in the U.S, the E.U., and Australia.

Fleshlight Quickshot Boost

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.

Catch the review below!

The Quickshot marks the most significant change to Fleshlight’s masturbator design since the company’s inception back in the 90s. It eschews the traditional large bulky case for something much more compact, and akin to some of the other “pocket pussys” you see on the market. The first time I saw it though, I couldn’t help but think back to a viral video from last year where a lady by the name of “Auntie Angel” taught the world how to turn a grapefruit into a sex toy, and gave everyone watching it a good laugh in the process. I like to think of the Quickshot as the professional evolution of that concept.
The Quickshot is available in two difference versions: the Boost and the Vantage. The difference between them is largely cosmetic, with the Vantage having a clear case and a clear insert, while the Boost has a black case and a metallic-grey insert, but there’s also a slight difference to the texture. One of the first things that came to my mind is how sticky the clear inserts tend to be, so the Boost seemed to be the safer option on that front, but I can confirm that this isn’t actually the case. Interestingly the grey insert appears to be just a clear Superskin with a lot of tiny metallic particles mixed in with it, rather than being a proper solid colour like the traditional Fleshlight-pink, but I’ll talk more about that later.

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.

Using the Quickshot is very straightforward and requires no special preparation other than a bit of waterbased lube. It’s worth applying a squirt of lube to the exterior of the orifice, as well as internally, just harking back to my earlier point about the material being quite sticky, as this’ll aid with initial insertion. The Superskin is a wonderfully soft and stretchy material, and you can feel it expand as you enter the toy, but it still feels very snug. The thing that restricts just how much the insert can adjust to accommodate you is the diameter of the plastic band, as this is where the toy feels tightest. I’d go as far as saying that anyone with a girth above 5 1/2″ should probably consider another toy, as that’s about the max it can take before you find yourself getting into difficulties. [Update: see my review of the Vantage for a less-tight 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 Boost is fairly enjoyable during thrusting, but if I’m honest I wasn’t all that blown away by it. The issue is that these little individual ridges get pushed over as soon as the penis makes contact with them, and then if you’re quite girthy they just get squashed into the side of the canal. It’s just not possible to feel them all that much, so while it does feel good, it feels good in the way that the smooth Fleshlight feels good, rather than in the way that the dozens of nubs inside the Flight can drive you wild. Occasionally part of one of the ridges, or one of the shallow nubs, will catch you right on the frenulum and feel extra good, but you have to play around with your technique to achieve this consistently. What is pleasant though, 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’s definitely not an imitation-sex toy, but for a masturbatory aid it’s an enjoyable step up from using your hand.

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.

One of my favourite things about the Quickshot is that it’s so easy to clean, and that’s not something you’ll hear anyone say about Fleshlight’s other masturbators. It’s as simple as popping the SuperSkin insert out of the plastic case, submerging it in a basin of warm water, and agitating it a little to remove any lube etc. After that it’s just a matter of leaving the insert somewhere to dry before you reassemble it, and it dries ever so quickly thanks to the open-ended design and relatively short body. It has to be the most hassle-free product that Fleshlight have come up with, and that’s a major selling point for it. You’re able to use it as frequently as you like because there’s no need to worry about the clean up afterwards. As much as I love my other Fleshjacks, there’s always a debate that goes on before getting one out “do I want a really good wank enough to go through the washing, cornstarching, and days of mould-preventing ventilation afterwards?” On the subject of cornstarch, it’s entirely optional with the Quickshot. As I mentioned earlier the material is sticky, but it still pops back into the case easily enough that it’s not a big deal. Personally I don’t bother.
Overall the Quickshot Boost is a nice little toy, and I love the fact that they’ve incorporated all the Fleshlight technology into something so convenient and much more accessibly-priced. For me it would benefit from having a slightly larger version to reduce the snugness, and I can picture some textures that I’d prefer, but these things aren’t deal-breakers [Update: the Vantage model solves these issues]. If you want to upgrade your masturbation session to something beyond just your faithful hand, then the Quickshot is a great way to do that without a lot of hassle and without breaking the bank. For those reasons I’d definitely recommend it.

Fleshlight Freaks Cyborg Dildo

So my second Halloween-themed review this month is going to be the Fleshlight Freaks Cyborg dildo. Fleshlight originally released five different masturbators and matching dildos masturbators in the “Freaks” range back in 2011, especially for Halloween, and they must have been popular because they’re still on sale on the Fleshlight website two years later.

If I had my way then I’d own them all, because they look like wonderful ghoulish works of art, but I decided that if I was going to buy one then it needed to be not so creepy that I’d have trouble putting it inside me, and also of a design that looked physically pleasing. Being a texture fan, and also a bit of a science-fiction aficionado, I settled on the lovely Cyborg, and now it’s time to review it!

Anyone who follows my blog will know that I’m a big fan of the Fleshjack dildos, and I’ve already written reviews raving about six of them, but it seems a little strange this time to be talking about one which wasn’t actually modelled on a person.
The design of the Cyborg dildo is spectacular to look at, but also not quite in keeping with its name. At the risk of being pedantic a cyborg is a cybernetic organism, something which is half man and half machine, and I really don’t see a lot of the man component of this design. It’s definitely something which has been heavily inspired by robotics, so perhaps naming it the android would have been more fitting. If you examine the balls then you can see all sorts of engraved circuitry, and up the length of the shaft is nodes and nodules, and all manner of ridges which look as though they could easily have come from an alien race straight out of your favourite science-fiction film. It’s a testament to Fleshlight really that even when they’re designing a dildo from scratch they pack an incredible level of detail into it. It wouldn’t surprise me if they had someone there working on the designs who used to add greebles onto fictional spaceships. 
The dildo measures in at 8″ from base to tip, and of that you get 6″ which are insertable. The average girth measurement of the shaft is 5 1/2″ around, +/- 1/8″ depending on how pronounced the texture is in a given section. Overall I’d say it’s not a terrifying size, though the texture and detail tricks your eye into thinking that it’s bigger than it actually is. The base of the dildo is actually pretty hefty, measuring 3 1/4″ x 4″ x 2″, so in that instance you can believe what you see, and it gives the Cyborg a nice low centre of gravity helping it to stand upright almost anywhere.

Like all the Fleshjack dildos the Freaks are made from 100% platinum silicone, and they come in some incredibly vivid colours, especially the Cyborg’s stunning purple. Silicone is one of my favourite sex toy materials because most importantly it’s safe for the body, and is a medical / food grade material. It also happens to be entirely odourless and easy to clean and maintain. The silicone in the Fleshlight Freaks range seems to be a little bit firmer than the silicone used in the Fleshjack Boys dildos, and is interesting to note, but can possibly be explained by the fact that these are not intended to feel as realistic given that they’re not emulating a real person’s body part. While I would compare the firmness of the Fleshjack Boys dildos to the Tantus Pack ‘n’ Play, the Freaks dildos are more akin to any of your regular Tantus products. There’s a decent amount of give in the surface of the Cyborg, and you can bend the shaft around without too much effort, but it doesn’t have that plush quality of the Fleshjack Boys dildos. The other real difference to note is the finish, as the Cyborg has a lovely smooth shiny surface to it, whereas the Fleshjack boys have a very fine velvety texture caused by the grain of the skin being picked up by the silicone.

Like all Fleshlight products the build quality of the Cyborg dildo is exceptional. There isn’t a mould line in sight, which is all the more surprising given the complexity of the design, nor are there any pits, fissures, or other visible defects anywhere to be seen. One thing which does disappoint me somewhat though is that my dildo is seriously lopsided. I’m not sure if it’s a case of all of them being like this, or somehow mine just slipping through the cracks of quality control, but it has a major Leaning Tower of Pisa thing going on. If you look at the 360 degree product view they have on their website then the whole thing is pretty straight and upright, so being the perfectionist that I am I’m a little disappointed that mine isn’t like that. Otherwise I can’t really fault the manufacturing.

When it comes to using the Cyborg dildo I’m probably going to suggest a warm up toy, and not because of its size. The tip of the dildo is actually quite modest and very gently tapered, but it starts with the texture almost immediately, and it just so happens that the texture at the tip is some of the most prominent on the whole toy. Inserting something with that much texture is going to be far easier and more comfortable if you’re already fairly loosened up. As you start to insert the dildo it really does feel quite intense, and the ridges catch a little on the soft fleshy tissue just within the anus, so using plenty of lube is a must here. The tip of the dildo is designed to look like the head of a penis, but you don’t really get a “pop” as you pass over the final ridge, more a pleasant sense of things calming down somewhat. Once the dildo is inside you can appreciate the comfort factor of the material because it does have the right amount of flex to move around inside the body, and the give in the surface of the silicone is enough to be gentle with the sphincter – you can only imagine how much more you’d feel that texture if the dildo was rock solid. Thrusting with the dildo is an experience in itself and there’s a lot going on at once. Every half inch of movement in any direction has texture stimulating the sphincter and it can be quite a lot to process. I wouldn’t say that thrusting with the dildo was an overly uncomfortable experience, but for me it wasn’t especially pleasurable either, and at this point we’re talking about long slow thrusts. I did attempt to get up to some thrusting speed with the dildo but that was where I had to stop as it felt as though something was grinding against my insides. There are options on how you can choose to use the dildo and position it, whether it be frontwards or backwards, or if you decide to squat over it or manipulate it by hand, but it doesn’t really change much because there’s 360 degrees of texture on every side of the shaft, so if you’re trying to escape it then you’re out of luck. In terms of prostate stimulation I didn’t really notice any, and I did focus my mind on this for fear that other sensations might be drowning it out, but it just wasn’t there. The Cyborg is one of those toys which delivers its sensation primarily into the sphincter through its use of texture, it’s just a question really whether or not you can handle that texture, and I for one was slightly overwhelmed, albeit to my surprise.

The packaging for the Fleshlight Freaks dildos is very similar to the current packaging for the Fleshjack Boys dildos, in fact it was the precursor to it as back in 2011 most Fleshlight products were still coming in lovely metal tins. The only real difference in packaging between the two is that the Freaks have no flap / door on the front, so instead you just get a clear plastic window through the cardboard box which shows you the contents inside. The box is fairly simple and has some pictures and writing on the sides letting you know which product it is, as well as a photo on the back of the full range should you decide to collect them all. The flaps are stuck down with security seals which tear when you peel them off, and inside you’ll find the dildo held cocooned within a plastic insert tray. On the whole it’s nice packaging, pretty tasteful and discreet; I kept mine to store the toy in but I don’t expect that most people would because it’s not quite that special.
I’m going to briefly talk about cleaning the toy, and really that’s just because of the ridges. As you should know you don’t need to take any special precautions with silicone and it can be bleached, boiled, chucked in the dishwasher and sterilised, but because it does have these deep and pronounced ridges you want to make sure that no dried lube or bodily matter gets caught in them. Give them a scrub with a soft toothbrush if need be just to get anything out.
Summing up the Cyborg is a tricky task because I look at it and I love the whole design and concept, and the fact that it’s well-made (bar the lean), from quality materials, but the texture was just a little too much for anal use. I’m certainly happy that I own it, and I still yearn for the others, but it’s just not that practical for me to use – even as texture lover – and I fear that it’ll spend most of its life now back in its box. If you want really hardcore texture then this very well could be the perfect dildo for you, but if you’re not sure then don’t be seduced by its incredible design, because you could well end up just a novelty Halloween ornament.
The Fleshlight Freaks Cyborg Dildo is available worldwide from the Fleshjack website, and there’s 15% off for Halloween 2017!

Fleshlight Shower Mount

Is it really August already? How the summer flies by. I was very fortunate this month that Lovehoney contacted me and asked me to review the all new Fleshlight Shower Mount for them. It’s a pretty self-explanatory device which allows you to stick your favourite Fleshlight / Fleshjack to a wall, but in case you’re in need of a little more explanation here’s a very NSFW video of a sexy man demonstrating how to use it.
Catch the review below.

The Fleshlight is quite easily one of the best male sex toys on the market today, as well as being one of my personal favourites, but possibly the only area where it’s let down is by the fact that you have to hold it during use. The need for it to be held somewhat limits its applications by restricting it to more of a masturbation device than something to thrust into and simulate sex, but now the people at Fleshlight have finally come up with a clever solution.
The Fleshlight Shower Mount is an adjustable suction cup which screws onto the base of most Fleshlight models in place of the existing small end cap. It’s quite a simple device on the whole and has three main features: firstly the cap section which connects to the Fleshlight can be screwed into place as tightly or loosely as you desire, allowing you to adjust the suction within the Fleshlight, just like you would with the standard end cap. Secondly, the Shower Mount has a hinge in the middle which allows you to alter the angle at which your Fleshlight projects from the surface that you’ve affixed it to, according to your personal preference. The hinge moves through around 130 degrees, so you can thrust into the Fleshlight horizontally, up vertically, up diagonally, down diagonally, or anything in between. The hinge is adjusted by loosening and tightening a small plastic nut, so once you’ve selected your perfect angle there’s no worry of it shifting at all. Thirdly, the most important feature of the whole device is the suction cup itself, and this is good size at 3.5″ in diameter. The suction cup works by first wetting it and placing it against a smooth surface, then by rotating a small slider to lock the suction cup into place. Once engaged the suction cup holds really firmly, even with the weight of the Fleshlight on top of it, and it can withstand a good amount of vigorous thrusting without being knocked off.
Although the device is called the “Shower Mount” it can be used anywhere that you have a smooth surface available, such as on the door of a mirrored wardrobe if you really want to watch yourself in action, on a floor-to-ceiling window of a skyscraper if you’re feeling like an exhibitionist, and even on laminate flooring if you’d prefer not to use it in a standing position. As long as the surface is smooth then it’s fine, but probably the biggest advantage to actually using it within the confines of the bathroom is clean up, as once you’re done fluids are likely to drip out of the end of the mounted Fleshlight, depending on the angle you’ve set it to, so better for that to run down the shower tray than onto carpeting. If your surface isn’t completely smooth then don’t worry, as the Shower Mount can handle a small amount of unevenness in the surface of a glazed tile without falling off, but it really does need to be a full sized tile – mosaics aren’t going to work. When you are finally done with the toy it does actually come away surprisingly easily, despite how firmly it was held only moments prior. You simply rotate the slider into the unlock position, then pull on the small tab on the suction cup to peel it away from the surface.
On the whole I have to say that I’m a really big fan of the Fleshlight Shower Mount; I wasn’t sure that I could like my Fleshlights any more than I already do, but this little device just went ahead and improved them, and I’m definitely going to be getting a lot of use out of it. It opens up a whole new world of hands-free pleasure with your favourite masturbation aid.
One slight downside is that the Shower Mount isn’t compatible with the clear Fleshlight cases. It mentions this on the packaging and at first I didn’t believe it so I felt compelled to test it out for myself. It transpires that the end of the clear case is ever so slightly larger than that of the other colours, enough that it won’t readily screw onto the Shower Mount. The Shower Mount does now come with an adaptor to make it compatible with the Flight though.
I’d definitely recommend the Shower Mount to anyone who owns a Fleshlight; it’s great if you’d prefer to thrust into your toy, it can be used in a wide variety of locations and holds extremely firmly, and it can be adjusted to whatever angle suits you best. 
The Fleshlight Shower Mount is available from Lovehoney UK, and Lovehoney USA.

Fleshjack Sword

If you’re a regular reader of my blog then you’ll probably have gathered by now that I’m a big fan of my Fleshjacks, so much so that I already have three of them (an Ice, a Vortex, and a Flight). You’d be forgiven for thinking then “why does he need another?” It’s a legitimate question, and in fact it took something special to make me want to expand my collection further. With the celebrity-endorsed Fleshjack Boys models, and downsized Jack’s Soda products aside, the Sword (and it’s anatomically female counterpart the Blade) is the first real major design variation to the tried and tested Fleshjack product, and naturally this piqued my reviewer’s curiosity.

In many ways the Sword is like your standard Fleshjack product, featuring a patented SuperSkin sleeve with an orifice at one end, a textured canal running through the middle, and all housed within a separate outer case. What makes the Sword different though is actually largely down to the case, so I can’t think of a better place to start.
The case for the Sword measures 8″ in total while the cap is on, making it significantly shorter than a traditional Fleshjack. The design of the case is modelled on the hilt of a Japanese katana, and it’s constructed from a soft blue plastic which can easily be squashed and bent about, thereby giving the Sword its unique feature. At the large end is a cap which pops off rather than unscrewing, and its shape is similar to that of a cricketer’s box, or athletic cup. At the opposite end of the case is no cap, but instead a simple plug to allow for drainage, and 4 small ventilation holes which wheeze like a dog’s chew toy when the Sword is squeezed. The Sword can be stood upright on this end, though it is slightly unstable and prone to wobble around a little. The body of the Sword isn’t cylindrical, with a cross section closer to triangular, and the body is also quite narrow, measuring only 2 1/2″ across in one direction, and 3″ in the other. The shape and size combined make the case of the Sword quite easy to hold onto, while the textured detailing adds a nice amount of grip. On the whole the Sword looks rather attractive to behold, and quite distinctive, marking a departure from the discreet torch-like appearance of the traditional models.
When you pop the cap off you’re greeted by your first glimpse of the Superskin sleeve which comes in the traditional pink. Like most Fleshjacks the Sword features a larger quantity of material around the opening, and this gradually slims down along the length. The Sword features an anal opening moulded into an egg-shaped section of material. Either side of the orifice is raised to mirror the edges of the buttocks, then in a valley in the centre is some realistic creasing to denote the wrinkling around a tightly-puckered anus. The access to the interior of the sleeve takes the form of a narrow vertical slit, rather than the small round hole which is usually found on the anal models. Just below the opening is a nice piece of extra detailing, in the form of a slightly raised line of material which depicts the raphe along the male perineum. It makes for quite an attractive and inviting orifice, even with the unusual egg-shape of the material.
The Sword comes with its own unique texture not found in any other Fleshjack model, and that sounds pretty exciting, right? Well, unfortunately it didn’t quite work out that way, at least not for me. If you look at the image I’ve included then it certainly seems like pretty interesting design, which lots of ridges in various shapes, sizes, and spacings, but when it comes to actually using it none of that really seems to matter. The interior of the Sword feels incredibly nondescript; with the Vortex you can feel the raised spirals gliding over the head of the penis, with the Flight you can feel the narrow portions of the canal which divide the different chambers, and the nodules which massage the frenulum, but with the Sword it’s very difficult to actually identify any area specifically during use. I’ve sat there with the cross section of the texture on the screen in front of me, whilst sliding my penis slowly back and forth through the Sword, and asking myself the question “was it that bit that I felt just then?” The answer typically was one of great uncertainty. Unfortunately the texture just doesn’t stand out in any way, and this is especially apparent if you’ve previously experienced something as fantastically stimulating as the Flight. In a way it even feels less intense than the Original texture, because rather than the ridges adding tightness, the recesses add more of a feeling of looseness. So far this is coming off as a fairly negative assessment, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bit disappointed by what I felt, but I’m going to throw a curve ball here and say that I actually still like the Sword. Despite everything I’ve said, the bottom line is that the texture does feel good, and it’s still a pleasure to use in spite of any shortcomings. Frankly when it comes to Fleshjack products you’re not going to find one which isn’t pleasurable, but when you’ve reviewed a few you start to build up preferences and certain expectations, and the texture of the Sword didn’t quite mesh with those. The one thing which does appeal to me about the texture of the Sword is that’s it’s great for edging. With some of the other textures they’ll drive you wild and push you into climax much sooner than you intended, but with the Sword you can ride the wave for much longer and reach orgasm more on your own terms. I found it especially enjoyable to really prolong the experience and extend the satisfaction for a greater period.

Texture aside, how does the Sword perform in all as a unit, with the case and insert coming together? Applying lube to the Sword is a relatively painless process, simply squirting a bottle over the opening will cause it all to run into the centre and drip through the slit to coat the inside, then you can begin to use it. Sliding the penis into the Sword is pretty trouble free, and despite the anal opening being tight there’s relatively little resistance from it as the material expands. The first thing I began to notice as I entered the Sword was that the soft case actually began to bulge out at the sides in order to accommodate the penis within it. This didn’t strike me as especially problematic, though I was fairly certain that the case was soft so that it could be squeezed rather than stretched. I have quite a good girth, which could be a contributing factor, but it’s nothing extra ordinary, so at this point I would just offer a word of caution to those men with exceptionally thick members. Once inside the Sword it feels comfortable, it’s not excessively tight or anything and the natural inclination is the start squeezing the case to see how much pressure can be applied. The insertable length of the canal is around 7 1/2″, so a little longer than the Flight. This is a size which should suit the majority of men, but if you’re longer and you like to go as deep as possible into a toy, then the Sword might not be your best choice. A useful thing to do at this point is to pop out the stopper at the end of the toy and squirt in some more lube from the other side, it also gives you a good chance to judge how near you are to the end. If you spot the end of your penis peering at you from the edge of the sleeve then you might want to slide it back a little to make more room for the lube before replacing the cap. Once you get thrusting with the toy you notice that unfortunately there’s no suction, as the 4 air holes in the base completely ruin this, and this does rather add to the feeling of ‘looseness’ which I was describing earlier. These ventilation holes also make the toy the most noisy Fleshjack yet, so you will need privacy to use it in. Trying to cover up the air holes with a hand is very awkward, but if you do manage it then the sucking sensation can feel rather nice, though the soft case does collapse in on itself during the out-stroke. If you really love a lot of suction in your Fleshjack then this probably isn’t the one for you. While thrusting you can start to test out what difference it makes being able to squeeze the case, and it’s actually less than you might imagine. Because the case is larger than your hand, when you squeeze pressure seems to mainly come from two sides, rather than equally around the penis, and the SuperSkin largely absorbs the pressure anyway. It’s different enough to be of interest, and slightly novel compared to a regular Fleshjack experience, but it doesn’t especially make the Sword feel any tighter, nor does it improve the sensations from the texture. It’s not like squeezing your penis with a bare hand, or through the surface of a thin cheap masturbator; you don’t experience that level of feedback. As thrusting became more vigorous with the Sword it did highlight one flaw with the design, and that’s that the sleeve does not stay inside the case that well. A few strokes into some more energetic usage and I noticed that the material at the pointed side had popped out of the front of the case, so I had to stop and stuff it back it. When this happened it didn’t really affect the performance, it just looked strange, and unfortunately I had to keep doing it. The design of the case just doesn’t seem to have enough of a lip at the top to really anchor the sleeve within it. Aside from this the performance of the toy was otherwise good and satisfactory.

In the past I’ve written a guide to Fleshjack Maintenance, so I won’t repeat myself, but I will mention a few peculiarities to the Sword. The first point is that the Sword is messy; usually with Fleshjacks a simple rinse of the inner canal will flush out any bodily fluids, but when I removed the sleeve from the Sword I found that there was quite a lot of mess coating the inside of the case and the exterior of the sleeve. This means you’ll probably want to wash it as soon as you’re done, instead of the lazy approach of standing in on its end to drain and then washing it later. The second point is that the sleeve is very hard to get back into the case when you’re done. Something about the shape of it, the material of the case, the lack of a cap on the other end, all just means that the sleeve doesn’t slip straight back in. It takes a lot of pushing, prodding, shaking, and jiggling to get things back to how they should be. Even though it’s a pink sleeve a coating of corn flour will definitely help in this instance.

Overall the Fleshjack Sword is a really hard product to sum up, because it makes changes to a tried and tested design which don’t improve it at all, but I don’t hate it. Aesthetically it’s really attractive, but it’s harder to clean, it lacks suction, and the texture is nothing special, yet a part of me still likes it, maybe the part of me which likes things which are new and different. It’s a Fleshjack which is definitely worth trying, I’m glad that I did to satisfy my curiosity at least, but if you had to pick one Fleshjack, and only one, to have, then this wouldn’t be it.
If you want to give the Sword a whirl then you can grab it straight from Fleshjack.
