Ever since the line of Sex in a Can Fleshlights came out, I’ve wanted to snag one for my boyfriend. I figured, since he loves his original Fleshlight, he’d clearly love a shrunken version. With teeth. And pale skin. And a fang-like texture on the inside.
Yeah, I know. I was asking for it.
The Succu Dry is shaped like an energy drink, but it certainly won’t pass for one — it’s bigger and, uh, has an intense vampire woman on the front. It says “1 pint” on it, but if it were actually a drink, it would be more like 20 or 22 ounces. It’s smaller than regular Fleshlights, of course, but due to the label, it’s far more flamboyant. The diameter of the plastic can is 2 3/4 inches, and it stands about 7 3/4″ tall.
The sleeve itself, made of Fleshlight’s signature SuperSkin, is a pale peach color. The lips and teeth are creepily realistic. Sometimes I catch myself wheedling the teeth between my fingers, just because they’re so pliable (and I’m such a creep). When you take the sleeve out of the case and compare it to a regular Fleshlight sleeve, it’s cute in its smallness.
But as it turns out, smaller is not always better — at least for my boyfriend. He contends that there is such a thing as too tight, and the Succu Dry falls into that category.
My boyfriend’s first try with the Succu Dry was a disaster. He couldn’t feel the fangs and couldn’t get any thrusting going at all. He deemed the toy a complete failure. Always the annoying girlfriend, I told him to try again with a different lube. He had used the very thick Almost Naked the first time, so I gave him the very thin Kama Sutra Love Liquid instead.
Success! He was able to finally thrust into the Succu Dry. It seems that a thinner lube is necessary so that it can ooze between the crevasses.
But still, he doesn’t really care for the sensation. It’s very, very tight (a lot tighter than the original), made especially tight by the fang texture. The fangs don’t feel pointy, he says, because they get flattened by thrusting — they feel more like bumps or nubs. He likes the texture better than the “twista” texture of his Tera Patrick Fleshlight, but he likes Tera Patrick better in general because it’s not as tight as the Succu Dry. Because of the extreme tightness, moving the Succu Dry up and down one’s cock takes a lot of forearm strength, which is annoying.
The suction when the end of the Succu Dry is closed is very intense, almost to the point of rendering the toy inoperative. The boyfriend much prefers to loosen the cap. But sometimes when the cap is loosened or removed, the sleeve will wheeze loudly while being used. This wheezing does not occur with the bigger Fleshlights.
Obviously, cock size will play a role in whether the Succu Dry feels tight, so for the first time, my boyfriend measured his girth. Turns out he is girthier than average, at 5.5″ in circumference (1.75″ in diameter). However, men with long penises could also have trouble, since the can without the top is only about 6 inches long; if you’re 6″ or longer, you’ll be hitting a wall.
One upside to the Succu Dry is that, unlike the bigger Fleshlights, the sleeve can be turned inside out for cleaning. As with any Fleshlight, only water should be used to cleanse your man-juices from the sleeve. To keep the SuperSkin soft, it should be powdered periodically with corn starch.
If your motto is “the tighter the better,” then the Succu Dry will be your dream come true. But of my boyfriend’s three Fleshlights, the Succu Dry is his least favorite. He notes that if the Succu Dry were the only Fleshlight he’d ever tried, “then I would think it was the best sleeve ever” (his Fleshlight-love in general is pretty strong). But since that’s not the case, the original Fleshlight is “so much better that it’s not even funny.”
