For more information on these topics in this article, we encourage you to reach out to the Fleshlight Reddit community with any questions. Hundreds of happy customers regularly discuss all things Fleshlight and are more than happy to answer any questions you might have before making a purchase. 

#1 The Superskin Material

Fleshlights are made with a patented material called Superskin, designed to mimic real skin's feel. This material is soft and pliable, allowing for a more realistic experience. 


It's essential to understand the properties of Superskin to choose the right Fleshlight for your needs. For example, some Fleshlights use a slightly softer version of Superskin, while others have a more traditional sensation. Being aware of these differences can help you make an informed decision.

#2 Size and Shape

You may be aware that Fleshlights come in various shapes and sizes. Spend a few minutes browsing our enormous online product catalog, and you'll find compact, medium-sized, and even standard-sized options.

Proper cleaning and maintenance are crucial for the longevity of your Fleshlight. Knowing how to clean and care for your Fleshlight is essential before purchasing.

Fleshlights come with a variety of textures, from smooth to highly textured.

#5 Lubrication

Lubrication is essential for a comfortable and pleasurable Fleshlight experience, but not all lubricants are compatible with Superskin, and silicone and oil-based lubricants can damage the Superskin material.


To ensure your Fleshlight products' longevity and increase the realistic sensation, we ONLY recommend using water-based lubricants such as our Fleshlube - the best water-based lubricant for your Fleshlight toys!
