After reading Jake’s review of the Lia 19 Fleshlight I was excited to hear that I’d be getting a Fleshlight to review too – The Fleshlight Stamina Training Unit, or ‘STU’.
This particular Fleshlight, as the name might suggest, is designed to train yourself to last longer in bed. The Fleshlight STU is apparently made in such a way that if you can last a specific amount of time through it’s stimulation then you’ll be able to last the same amount of time with a partner. It certainly is a lot more stimulating that the other male sex toys I’ve used, but whether it actually does what it says has yet to be seen. Don’t pay full price for the Fleshlight. Use a Fleshlight coupon.
The Stamina Training Unit’s sleeve is made of Fleshlight’s patented Superskin which, to my surprise, actually feels real! Being silicone-based, you do need to use a water-based lube with it. The entrance looks like a real vagina and is pretty tight.
The internal texture is Fleshlight’s ‘Speed Bump’, which is lots of small spherical bumps tightly squeezed together. I would have liked to be able to try out different textures, but I suppose that it’s this particular texture that trains you to last longer.
How big is it?
The Fleshlight Stamina Training Unit is 10″ long, with a circumference of 7.5″ around the main section and 11.5″ around the entrance. This is a lot bigger than I had expected, but it’s still pretty easy to hide in a drawer or cupboard if discretion is an issue.
The insertable length is 8″, which should be long enough for most guys to go balls deep. If you’re longer than 8″ then you can completely remove the end cap, although you’d be coming out of the other end. Tightening and loosening this end cap controls how much suction the Fleshlight has.
How to clean it?
Cleaning your Fleshlight is probably the most important, and time consuming, aspect of owning one. After use you need to take it apart and remove the inner-sleeve to clean off all the lube and whatever-else is in there with warm water. This seems like it should be pretty simple, and I suppose that it is, it’s just time consuming. After cleaning you need to leave it out to dry before sprinkling some corn starch on there to keep it fresh and ready for next time.
What’s the packaging like?
The Fleshlight’s packaging is very simple and discreet. A plain cardboard box that nobody would recognize as packaging for a sex toy. In one respect I was disappointed as I like when sex toys come in fancy packaging like my girlfriend’s always do, but I assume the reason the Fleshlight doesn’t is for discretion, in that respect the packaging does it’s job well.
How did I rate it?
With regards to the actual performance of the Fleshlight STU I’m of mixed opinion. It is very stimulating and as far as a male sex toy goes is close the top of favorites list. But, being as this is called the Stamina Training Unit, I should really be saying whether or not it works with regards to actually training you to last longer. I’ve only been using it for about a week and so far I haven’t really seen any noticeable difference in how long I last with it or my girlfriend. It’s still early so I suppose that this could change over time. But, even as just a male sex toy, the Fleshlight Stamina Training Unit gets a big thumbs up from me!
Another option you should consider is the Doc Johnson masturbator.
