It really never occurred to me that the FleshLight was actually modeled on a real, live vagina. Like most people, I assumed that it was actually just an “ideal” vagina, composited after a variety of board meetings, with men in suits sitting around a conference table, flipping through diagrams and squeezing latex-feeling things until one of them was like, “Yes, this is it. This is the closest approximation to the vagina of my dreams. We’re gonna be rich!” Well, I was wrong, like I am about many, many things. Here is a very informative video about Eufrat Mai, the actual, real-life vagina model for the FleshLight. It’s kind of incredible to watch her walk through a vast factory of floppy sleeves, all molded to look like her downstairs, and it’s even more incredible to watch her touch the likeness of her actual vagina and approve of its feel. Check out the video, which is NSFW-ish — if you consider watching a dude lube up a FleshLight and lightly, um, explore it with his fingers NSFWish. [Digg]
I was going to stay away from the brands-tweeting-smarmy-sentiments-about-9/11 stories today. But then the people behind Fleshlight, the world’s premier manufacturer of fake vaginas for dudes to have sex with, had to go and make 9/11 about them.
Making fun of brands is a tired genre. Brands gonna brand. Brands will always find a way to make current events, even disasters, about them. Sometimes it’s irreverent and funny; other times it’s pitiful and tasteless. Sometimes it’s even worse. (Remember SpaghettiOs’ tasteless Pearl Harbor tweet?) Keep reading »
Welp, here we are! It is the year 2014 and dudes can officially fuck their handheld devices. Fleshlight, the makers of tubular vagina sex toys for men, has debuted LaunchPAD, a Fleshlight attachment for your iPad or tablet that allows you to thrust your dick into the very device you’re watching porn on. Isn’t technology amazing? Aren’t humans incredible? The things we will do to get off, man. I love it. (Seriously, I do. I think this is super cool.) Sorta SFW ad after the jump!

As mostly heterosexual ladies, we’ve had to fear/admire Fleshlight from afar. The silicone vagina slightly horrified us, especially the ones modeled after adult film actresses. Then again, if we’re here wishing upon a star that vibrators rain from the sky, why shouldn’t men enjoy sex toys, too? It’s only fair. Now the tech blogs Geekosystem and Gizmodo report Fleshlight is developing an iPad attachment to make masturbating to porn on your tablet even easier: it attaches onto the iPad like a regular iPad case, but there’s a fake p**sy attached to the end. Messy is the first word that comes to my mind. Little birds tell me that Fleshlight needs lube to achieve that authentically vaginal feel. I don’t know about dudes, but I keep lube bottled up around my $500 toy. [Gizmodo via Geekosystem]

When I started writing for The Frisky, I had no idea what a Fleshlight even was, which makes sense because I don’t have a penis. I thought they were flashlights used to light the way during oral sex. Oh, the things you learn! Imagine my surprise when I discovered that a Fleshlight is actually an orifice (mouth, vulva, or anus) resembling a flashlight, which is used for male masturbatory purposes. This makes me all the more skeeved out by these My Little Pony branded flashlights, which appear to be the Internet’s idea of a joke. Kids toys and sex toys do not a tasteful mashup make. The poor ponies. They just want to have their hair combed and eat grass out in the backyard. At least, that’s what mine liked to do. How they have been denigrated by the sex toy industry.
