The top 10 of all time
While some of the newer released Fleshlights stirred up the top list, you will see that many of the top textures are on this list for quite some time already. These timeless classics include for example Stoya’s famous Destroya Fleshlight, the more discrete and compact Pilot or the super realistic Lotus texture. But this all-time list should also feature discontinued Fleshlights such as Jenna Jameson’s Legend or Katsuni’s Lotus Garden. Other notable mentions should be Surge and Heavenly.
It is also important to consider that there are truly amazing toys for certain categories that would not make the top list but can definitely shine in aspects like realism or intensity. For this reason, we also created dedicated top lists for Fleshlights of a certain category. So treasures such as Jenna Haze’s Obsession can show that they stand out in terms of intensity, while it would not make the cut in the overall rating. Alexis Texas’ Tornado demonstrates how realistic a sex toy can be, but lacks the intensity and stimulation rating that put Savage, Storm or Fit in the place they are in. The famous Stamina Training Unit (STU) is featured on an own list dedicated to practice toys and the Mini Lotus is one of the recommendations for beginners.
Therefore, our top 10 attempts to combine all these different characteristics a Fleshlight possess as well as the rating users of this website give them in order to evaluate their overall satisfactoriness. The list is regularly updated. It takes new releases into account but also tries to make sure that all these Fleshlights are still available. The result is the above list of truly exceptional Fleshlights.
What is the best Fleshlight?
The best Fleshlight is the sum of the best parts. These are the:
Although it would be nice if you could just combine them as you wished, we are more limited than that. Some cases are restricted, due to their size or shape, to certain sleeves and textures are often only available with a single orifice. So, unfortunately the best texture does not necessarily come with the best orifice or case. But still, what are the best of their type? Let’s start with the squishy insert that you can actually feel.
Best Fleshlight sleeve / insert
The sleeve is the insert you put into the case. This is recommended / necessary for most of the toys in order to have the best masturbation experience. There are some Fleshlight models where using only the sleeve is helpful or even required, though. The prime example for using only the soft material instead of the hard case is the Fleshskins Grip Blue Ice. Here the case only serves as storage and drying purpose, but it is used as a sleeve-only. Another example is the Quickshot Fleshlights. If your penis is very thick, using the Quickshots with the case can be uncomfortable due to their narrow diameter. You can help yourself by just using it without the case just as well. In general, the rule of thumb is that the longer the Fleshlight sleeve is, the more inconvenient it will get if you try to use it without the case.
The insert consists of two other parts that are of major importance to a Fleshlight. From the outside visible is the orifice. While they mostly serve cosmetic purposes, there are also some with a special purpose. The invisible part is the texture on the inside. While the first Fleshlight, the Original, only provided a straightforward canal with unstructured walls, the textures nowadays are far more sophisticated. The material remains the same extraordinary SuperSkin, a patented material that aims to replicate the human flesh as good as possible.
Even though the SuperSkin is used with all Fleshlight models, the appearance of the inserts does not only differ in the orifice used. The sleeves also have different lengths depending on the series and the length of the surrounding case. Additionally, they also come in different colors. The most popular and widespread mimics a pink flesh tone. But there are also colored versions in blue (e.g Alien), red (e.g. Ignition) and grey- and greenish colors for the Freaks series or even transparent ones (e.g. Ice Torque). The level of detail ILF puts into their Fleshlights can be seen when looking at the sleeve colors of the Fleshlight Girls. Each girl has the color of their Fleshlight sleeves toned to her actual skin tone.
The best sleeves are usually the ones of the Fleshlight Girls because of their details, which show the work and effort that went into them. The orifices are extremely true to the original and the material feels best with the flesh colored versions. Even though a clear color is appealing because you can see yourself moving in the toy, these sleeves tend to be much stickier than their flesh colored counterparts. In terms of orifice and texture the following sections will tell you more.
Best Fleshlight texture
As with all other parts of a Fleshlight a lot of what makes a texture good comes down to what you personally like most. But there are some Fleshlights that just stand out, some of them because of their looks, but most of them due to their outstanding stimulation. And this is usually the result of an extraordinary composition.
Fleshlight textures exist with all kinds of structures. They contain everything from huge nubs, to narrow ribs, deep grooves or long spirals. But not all structures are equally good in stimulating and a lot of the times the mixture of these structures makes it truly stand out.
The best textures provide the best stimulation and usually provide a strong intensity. They do not necessarily have to be very tight, because that often takes away from the effect the structures have. Very tight ones are also intensive, but you cannot perceive the structures as good, which reduces the overall stimulation quality. Many of the best also come with seemingly simple repeating patterns. This continuity often provides an exceptional stimulation. Examples for such repeating but very appealing textures are Heartthrob, Empress or Savage. But also, more complex examples such as Butterfly, Storm or Beyond prove that a good composition of structures is the key to make it to the top of the list.
There are also several Fleshlight insides that shine when you put them in the right spotlight. These prime examples of great models often rank high in certain subcategories with outstanding intensity or an amazingly realistic sensation. Getting one of these can be very helpful when you like to build up stamina or if you are looking for an authentic and real sex experience.
While our top list takes numerous characteristics of reviews and ratings into account, we would like to give you some tips to help you find your perfect choice. It is important to consider that penises differ in length, thickness and sensibility. What is best for most must not necessarily be best for you. The above overall top list is meant as a general guidance for most men. There are also specialized lists in which we recommend specific Fleshlights for various penis sizes as well. Just as there are special products for travel, discreteness or stamina building.
Best Fleshlight orifice
The orifice of a Fleshlight is usually the first thing to draw your attention, whether it’s the real juicy bits of your favorite porn star, a neutral hole with few details or an impressive opening with mechanical looks. It is the first part your penis touches when you use the Fleshlight and last part you feel when you are done. The orifice plays an important role for every sex toy and ILF shows great love for detail in designing them. But do they differ, and which one is the best?
Admittedly, even though there are numerous different kinds of orifices from pussies to butts, neutral ones, twisters and orifices of monsters, almost all of them only serve aesthetic purposes. The different widths in diameter for the holes of the orifices are minimal. You can feel some difference between a pussy sleeve with a large labia and a pure orifice, but these distinctions are negligible compared to the stimulation of the texture you will encounter immediately afterwards. Yet, they will still make a difference for you, based on your personal preference. It is important that the looks of the orifice are appealing to you, whether it is the pussy or butthole of your favorite porn star or an exciting adventure with the turbine-shaped orifice of the Pilot Fleshlight.
There is one series however that was awarded with a very special orifice and that are the Fleshlight Turbo models. They have an innovative blowjob orifice that looks rather mechanical but aims to replicate a sensual mouth-to-penis sensation. Therefore, it consists of three layers with varying widths and resistances in order to simulate the whole blowjob experience starting from the lips, moving over the tongue and towards the throat.
So, except for the special blowjob orifice, you should decide which orifice looks best to you in order to find your personal favorite. Because the creators of the Fleshlight put a lot of effort into detailed looks of the Fleshlight Girls lady and butt orifices you will most likely find very appealing examples there. Most of the orifices are bound to a specific texture, however, so make sure that you also like the structures that come with it. Because the inside is certainly the most important part of the Fleshlight experience.
Best Fleshlight case
There are several different Fleshlight cases. They vary in size, color and shape. Despite the amount of varying cases you are relatively limited picking a case to your liking. The reason is that most of the case shape, color and size combinations are made for Fleshlights of a certain series. The size and shape are predefined for the specific series in order to fit the sleeve. Still many of these combinations have at least two different colors to choose from. For many series there is a standard colored version and a clear one with a transparent case and insert. Examples for such Fleshlight series are the Fleshlight Go, Fleshlight Quickshot or Fleshlight Flight.
Some series have unique shapes such as the “Sex In A Can” (SIAC) or the Quickshot. The Fleshlights of the Go series on the other hand use the classic case design just in a smaller size. Most of the Fleshlight models use the standard case, though, varying only the sleeve and the case color. Therefore, the classic case is now already available in nacre, black, gold, blue, silver and transparent.
The case itself consists of the long main part with the sleeve in it, a larger lid on the front, a cap in the back and a slim ring that holds the sleeve, preventing it from being pulled out of the case. The large lid only prevents the orifice from dust and danger, but the other parts of the case also play important roles while masturbating. The slim ring at the beginning of the large case body prevents the insert from slipping out of the case. At the end of the case is the small cap, which lets you regulate the airflow and the vacuum inside the sleeve. And the large case body makes sure you have a good grip and keeps you from squeezing the soft material itself in order to provide a consistent stimulation. While these are the parts of most cases there are some special versions.
For example, the Quickshots, which are open on both sides due to their short length. Here the case caps are both taken off and only the center ring stays on the texture for grip and consistency purposes. Another exception is the Fleshskins Grip, which is used as a sleeve-only masturbation device. The case with this one still serves two important purposes. The first obviously being storage, but due to its drying rod in the middle and an open bottom, the case is also meant to be used to dry the sleeve after cleaning. This is most certainly the best use of a Fleshlight case but unfortunately limited to this one model.
So, in most cases it comes down to having only the choice of color, because the rest is already given by the series of the Fleshlight, and we advise you to not let the case itself be the most important factor of your decision. Except when you are looking for a compact size or discreet as possible appearance, then go for the Quickshot, Pilot or Sex In A Can.
How Fleshlight ratings work
Fleshlights can be rated in numerous ways: their sensation, appearance, practicability, portability, size and many more. All these factors are part of our reviews and are completed by user-based ratings. These evaluations focus on the qualities of the textures and are by far the most important factor, as to how a sex toy is perceived.
The ratable characteristics of Fleshlight textures are:
- suction effect
- orgasm quality
- noise level
- lube need
- drying time
These mark the most important qualities of Fleshlights and make it possible to standardize the rating system. The goal of the assessment is to make them comparable with each other. What do the characteristics mean?
The intensity is one of the main contributors to an outstanding experience. It describes how powerful the stimulation is perceived and is for most men directly related to how fast they will cum. Intensity is often a result of tighter passages and large or edged structures with a strong resistance. Low intensity textures often have no, few or smaller structures.
Stimulation is the most important factor for overall satisfaction. It measures how good the structures of a Fleshlight feel and how positive they impact the sensation. A good stimulation is usually the result of a well-thought composition of structures, whereas they do not necessarily have to be extremely intense, tight or diversified.
The penetration category measures how good the feeling of pushing through the canal is. It is related to passages with abruptly changing diameters and rings or large structures that have you push through them. A high penetration score usually comes along with good stimulation, but not necessarily the other way around.
Tightness describes the remaining space within the canal. This is often correlated with a high intensity. Tightness plays an important role with anal textures but is not limited to them. It is a very subjective measure, as it depends a lot of the respective penis.
The suction effect is the result of a vacuum originating within the more spacious chambers of the sleeve. It provides a pleasant pulling sensation, like if a person sucked on the penis. It is very favorable towards the stimulation rating and often comes with certain structures, such as the lotus node.
Realism is a measure on how good a texture mimics an actual real sex experience. It is often achieved by wider paths with few but repeating structures. High intensity and variety scores affect the realism evaluation negatively.
Variation measures how many differently perceived structures are within a Fleshlight. Textures with only a few structures or many repeating patterns score low on this rating, while copious amounts of structures increase it.
Orgasm quality states how good and intense the orgasm within this texture is perceived. Highly stimulating toys usually also provide intense orgasms. It is a very important subjective measurement.
Noise level describes the amounts of sound that a texture makes while in use. Due to differently sized chambers, amounts of lube required and air pockets they can make different amounts of noise.
Lube need is a measurement for the amount of actual lube that is favorable to use with this Fleshlight. Especially textures with extensive structures and highly intensive ones require more lube. Plain straightforward canals still require lube but much less.
Cleaning is a measure for how easy it is to clean a sleeve and how long it takes. Depending on the structures used within a texture, the composition of the chambers and diameter throughout the canal these can vary greatly.
The drying time is an indicator how long it takes before the sleeve is completely dry again. It is influenced by the structures used within the sleeve and its diameter. It is often related to cleaning but not always.
On top of that there is an overall score, which shows the overall satisfaction with a Fleshlight. It is important because even though most scores are a great indicator of quality, others come down to a personal preference and this assessment helps to distinguish those.
Another upcoming guide will focus on recommendations for accessories around the sex toys. We will include hot gadgets such as the adapters and connectors for the Quickshots or the impressive Fleshlight Launch. The Launch is a fully automated masturbation device, in which you put your Fleshlight and which then takes over the up and down motions with speed settings that you define. This future list aims to help you with the overwhelming number of accessories that are on the market today.
