How to NOT Care for Your Fleshlight (don't do this) - Fleshlight

How to NOT Care for Your Fleshlight (don't do this)

When you buy a Fleshlight, you are not just "buying a sex toy"; you're investing in both your happiness and sexual health. 

Unlike many other similar products on the market, our products are designed to be both visually pleasing and sexually gratifying for the long haul. If you care for yours properly, you can rest assured yours will last you for years on end.

In this article, we're going to cover five things you should avoid doing if you want to ensure your Fleshlight lasts for as long as possible.

#1 Don't Microwave Your Fleshlight 


Just as foreplay before sex is an essential first step, warming your Fleshlight before slipping inside is required if you want an even more realistic and pleasurable experience. 

With that being said, it's important to understand there's a right way and a wrong way to go about heating your Fleshlight.

The one thing you DO NOT want to do when raising the temperature of your Fleshlight sleeve is to microwave it. Over the years, we have heard stories from guys who tried to get the fastest warm pussy possible only to destroy their high-quality masturbator in the process. 

Instead, warm your Fleshlight to your desired temperature with our Fleshlight Sleeve Warmer. Specifically designed to warm our patented SuperSkin material carefully, this is the easiest and fastest way to get the realism you want without damaging your Fleshlight.

If you're specifically a Quickshot-only-owner, make sure to grab a warmer explicitly built to fit its shorter length and exact inner diameter. Shop your Quickshot Sleeve Warmer today!

#2 Don't Use Your Fleshlight Without Lube 


This might be a no-brainer, but you should never attempt to penetrate your Fleshlight toy without lubricant. But don't just use any lube - it must be water-based lubricant!

Once you have warmed your sleeve to your ideal temperature, apply a generous amount of water-based lube to its orifice, interior texture, and, of course, on your dick before entry.

Some men make the mistake of using a water-based lubricant alternative such as silicon-based lubes or even different types of lotions. Doing so will lead to not only inevitable tears but discomfort on your penis and gradual destruction of your Fleshlight's SuperSkin material.

#3 Don't Put Off Cleaning It


As soon as you blow your load, you should proceed to clean your Fleshlight. You would be surprised to know that many guys simply screw on the caps and store it away, thinking, "I'll take care of that later." 

This is not only gross but can alter the smell and realistic sensation you've come to know and love over time.

Don't put off cleaning your Fleshlight; you want to make sure to do this ASAP, ensuring you're doing your due diligence by not allowing any residue to remain inside.

#4 Keep the Fleshlight Cleaning Process Simple

When it comes to the nitty-gritty of cleaning out your Fleshlight, we recommend you keep it straightforward. 

Start by removing the Fleshlight from its case and allowing flowing warm water to run through it into a drain. If your sink's faucet pressure is on the low end, try your bathtub faucet (the pressure tends to be stronger). Repeat this process with your Fleshlight's outer case and caps, too.

For additional sanitation, use some soap to clean the case and screw-on caps, but NEVER on the sleeve itself.

Just like if you use lotion or silicone-based lube on your sleeve, soap decreases both the quality and sensation of the SuperSkin material. 

Lastly, do not place your Fleshlight sleeve in your dishwasher (even without soap). 

While this might seem like a way to thoroughly rinse your sleeves' exterior surface and interior texture, the tremendous heat, and steam produced inside your dishwasher will have the same effect as if you were to microwave it. 

Once rinsed, you should apply our Fleshwash antibacterial cleaning spray and Fleshlight Renewing Powder. By doing this regularly, you are ensuring your Fleshlight will be there to provide you pleasure for years and years.

#5 Don't Store It Away Wet


While this final "Do Not Do" might be the hardest one to avoid, it's imperative to the lifespan of your Fleshlight. We strongly recommend you do not ever store your Fleshlight in its case while still wet.

After cleaning your favorite stroker, first, dry its exterior with a towel or washcloth. Next, decide how you're going to dry its interior out. You have several options:

The Classic Method

Place a washcloth beneath your Fleshlight sleeve and lay it on a table or counter to air dry. This is the slowest way of going about things, but it is the tried and true method.

The Fan Method

Just as with the Classic Method, your Fleshlight sleeve is laid out on a table or countertop, but this time with a fan blowing directly toward it. As you might imagine, this will speed things up significantly.

Drying Rack Method

In 2020, we launched the Fleshlight Drying Racks. These provide you with a simple way to position your Fleshlight in an optimal drying position, with the end of the sleeve pointing towards the ground, allowing it to drip dry.

Choose between the following Drying Rack options:

  • Screw Dry

  • Hang Dry

  • Stand Dry

Finally, a convenient way to dry your Fleshlight! Choose your favorite Drying Rack today.

Well, that is all we have for you for today's article. Follow these steps, and we ensure you and your Fleshlight will spend a long and happy life together.

Until next time!
