Fleshlight Flight going to AustraliaIt is now quite nearly a fact: my boyfriend likes his Fleshlights plainHis first Fleshlight remains his unbeatable favorite because the inner canal is just how he likes it — soft and smooth as a baby’s butt. I should delete that. I really should. But I just can’t bear to do it. Don’t come at me, FBI.

Even with its inner texture and my boyfriend’s peculiar penile preferences, though, the Fleshlight Flight has jumped to the #2 spot on his list. Which is still composed entirely of Fleshlights, because he is a ~discerning gentleman~.

The Flight, in its case, is 2″ shorter than a regular Fleshlight, 35% lighter at 14.4 ounces, and .75″ smaller in diameter at the front. It is arguably one of the most compact toys that Fleshlight makes, similar in size to the Fleshlight Go and only larger than the Quickshot. What is this? Fleshlight actually admitting that not all penises are enormous?!

I find the Flight’s case, with its dotted texture and sleek shape, astoundingly more attractive than the traditional flashlight-fit-for-a-bear cases — and my boyfriend does too. Although he has big hands, he much prefers the compact Flight case to the regular ones. EXCEPT FOR ONE THING, and here is where he went all Epiphora on me: he hates the slanted base on the Flight case. Like, he will not stop shut up about how much he hates it. The slant prevents him from setting the toy upright during use, so instead it rolls around awkwardly on his desk.

The good news for you is that if you are not bothered by this issue (my boyfriend interjects from the other room, “who wouldn’t be!?” — SETTLE DOWN, HOSS), the Flight is pretty nice. It’s a solid toy for an average-sized penis, and if you want to bring it to Australia to see the pigs at the mall, it won’t take up half your suitcase.

The choice of clear (“ice”) Superskin rather than pink or cream is an interesting — but unfulfilling — one. The “ice” sleeves are usually reserved for the corresponding transparent cases, since you’re supposed to be able to get off on your ROCK HARD COCK raw doggin’ that SWEET TIGHT HOLE. You can’t do that with the Flight. Sadly?

But the ice sleeve also gets tackier faster (the FAQ on Fleshlight’s site even admits that “the lack of pigment leaves the ice masturbation sleeves slightly stickier than the others”), and it always seems to look like a bunch of people have touched it.  Plus, it’s much easier to spot dirt specks and dried lube on the opaque sleeves, ensuring a thorough cleaning.

Once you enter the orifice, you may never returnThe Flight’s orifice looks like a pinwheel, which pleases my boyfriend’s aversion to über-realistic vulvas and anuses. It’s also a really quick-entry hole, with no need to finagle one’s penis around to enter it. The texture starts immediately, as seen in The Creepiest Photo I’ve Ever Taken™ over there. Don’t stare at it for too long — who knows what could happen.

The “Pilot” inner texture of the Flight is fine, not too intense, and I’m told it just feels like bumps. The Flight is tighter than regular Fleshlights, but not uncomfortably so, and not nearly as tight as the unbearable Sex In A Can. However, there’s a spot a couple inches in where the canal tightens significantly. Because of the way my boyfriend uses his Fleshlights — he pulls his penis out as much as possible before stroking back in — he faces a lot of resistance from this tight area. It makes the jacking off motion jerky, like the toy is trying to launch itself off his penis. But he says this is not a huge deal. I just found it hilarious that the toy literally wants to take flight.

Also, if you like to go balls deep1 in your Fleshlights and really get lost in the experience, the Flight isn’t the most luxurious choice. Regular Fleshlights offer 3.5″ in diameter of plush, squishy Superskin to press up against, and the extra material on the inside envelops the penis even more. Regular Fleshlights are better for longer, more indulgent sessions, whereas the Flight is perfect for quickies.

I like the Fleshlight Flight because it’s more stylish, more manageable, and allows users with average-sized penises to enjoy the entirety of what is usually a quite complicated inner texture (seriously, who is ever going to reach that final chamber in Stoya’s vagina?). Of course, if your penis is over 6″ long when erect, you’ll hit a wall. But if you find regular Fleshlights too damn big, if you desire a more lightweight wank, or if you want a sleeve for travel, the Flight is a good ‘un.

  1. I wish I didn’t have to use that phrase, but… argh… []

    I disagree. I think that is the Most Awesome Photo Ever. I totally stared at it for at least five minutes. For a minute I thought my brain might implode, but nah, nothing happened.

  • Whew. Good. I was worried the internet would add a screaming ghost 30 seconds in or something.

  • Kira

    You would never have heard the end of it from me. lol Those things give me panic attacks.

  • Yup, I think it’s beautiful. Staring into a vortex, like looking into a space-time wormhole… gd I’m such a fucking raver. You can forget I ever said that if it makes you feel better.

  • Kira

    I was thinking the EXACT same thing, but I’m a raver too so maybe that’s why. 😛

  • Honestly I’d still want to wield the Fleshlight like a lightsaber. I can’t help it.

  • “Serious, who is ever going to reach that final chamber in Stoya’s vagina?”

    I think there’s a cheat code on GameFAQs for that, isn’t there?

  • Dangerous Lilly

    Aw damn. Husband needs the longer toys as he clocks in at about 7.5; I was starting to think this one might be a good try.

  • tim

    That slanted end cap is the stupidest design ever. If not for that, the Flight might very well be my favorite Fleshlight ever. (I own three, including the Flight.) Normally when I’m finished with a Fleshlight I stand it on end to keep it from dripping all over the place while I clean myself up. But no, you can’t do that with the Flight.

    As someone who walks past the pigs about once a week, I find it amusing that they are mentioned in this review. Little old Adelaide!

    I was tossing up between this Fleshlight and a couple of other models. It’s good to know that this one probably won’t be long enough for my boyfriend. I didn’t really know of or think about the differences you mentioned between the ice and the regular sleeves. As much as I would probably enjoy seeing his penis slide in and out of a transparent sleeve/case (yes, one of my main reasons for wanting to get him a Fleshlight is so I can perv on him while he’s using it… don’t judge me!), it sounds like it may be more annoying overall.

    So yes, thanks for a very informative review!

  • My dream is to one day visit the pigs.

  • solitudinarian

    I hope you make it down here some day then!

    Came here 4 years late as I just received my Flight Instructor and using it today in the shower I figured out why the base is slanted, or at least what it’s good for.
