The Fleshlight Alien is a different take on the good old Fleshlight for creating that out-of-this-world experience. Let me tell you about it.
If you are new to the Fleshlight range you should know that they come in a range of different colors and textures – and consists of a soft inner sleeve and a hard plastic case. You can buy additional sleeves without a case so you can mix and match as you see fit, as well as cut the price by a bit. It should also be noted that these are not small toys. They are in fact quite large as it is one size fits all. Sizing is as follows: Lenght of the case including end cap is 10 inches (25.4 cm), circumference of the biggest part is 12 inches (30.48 cm) and the smallest part is 7.5 inches (19.05 cm).
Maybe not the easiest thing to hide, if you prefer to keep your toys private.. When you first unpack your Fleshlight, don’t get too carried away – you must remove a plastic tube (travel anchor) from inside the sleeve. It is there simply to keep the shape intact during shipping. It will hurt you if not removed.
Fleshlights have always been shipping in neat metal tubes, and this one is no exception. It has a decent design but it will not cover the fact that this is a sex toy, with the logo is printed all over – and today most people would know what a Fleshlight is. I know this is not enough stealth for some, but the issue is minimal.
Included in the box you get a discount code for an Avatar inspired porn movie and a sample of Fleshlube to get you started right away. And of course the most important part; the exclusive blue case and custom sleeve. Both look nice in a pearly blue, much like the matching Alien dildo.
The sleeve however does not look like the official product photos, as it sports a slightly lighter color. Almost a pearly baby-blue. I’m a little disappointed as I was looking forward to the rich deep blue color as advertised.
Sleeve & usage
The sleeve itself is super soft, and feels nice and velvety to touch. Although a bit more rubberlike than the clear sleeves. It is made of body safe Superskin material which is medical/food grade, phthalate-free polymers. It is not made of latex, plastic or silicone, but a special blend exclusive to Fleshlight. It is so secret that it can only be stated what it’s not. But rest assured it is perfectly safe. It almost lives up to the material name, although it feels more like flesh than skin. It does heat up to body temperature fairly quick but you can heat it up in warm water prior to use or cool it down for a totally different sensation. It does have a faint smell, like a mix of rubber and talcum, but nothing that would ruin your precious moments with the Alien.
The orifice is nice and detailed and unlike anything from this world. However, it’s the inner texture that really caught my attention. It is exclusive to the Alien and is not used in any other sleeves. It is a combination of what seems to be the three most popular textures available at the moment. It consists of the vortex, the lotus node and the intense Stamina Training Unit (STU).
The opening is pretty wide, almost half an inch (1 cm), and the vortex part is not very tight. But once you get to the lotus node and the speed bumps from the STU it tapers a bit to the end, and the fit is more snug.
Due to the fact that this is 3 textures in one, not only can you experience them all and find out which one you prefer, but you are in for a ride with a multitude of different sensations.
To make the most out of the Fleshlight, you should use a good amount of quality water based lubricant. Silicone or oil based lubricants will deteriorate the material. It’s pretty simple, you lube yourself up and then you pour a bit down the opening and off you go. For more variation you can unscrew or tighten the end cap to adjust the suction according to your preference. When the air flows freely, it produces a fair amount of suction noise. But with the end cap completely sealed it stays quiet. Whether you like it tight and clinging or not, shallow or deep – the key is to alternate how far in you thrust as this sleeve tapers and gets more clingy the further in you go.
Overall the texture is nice and stimulating, and does its job. I would prefer the opening to be slightly tighter as I enjoy the feeling of a tight penetration. Compared to the crystal butt texture this offers a looser fit and a more clinging sensation.
To clean the Fleshlight after use you simply take out the sleeve and flush the insides with lukewarm water. Make sure not to use too hot water or the surface can become damaged over time. After it has been flushed you gently squeeze out the excess water and leave it to air dry before storing it in the case. I find it is nice and easy to hang it on a towel rack when drying. There is no need for sex toy cleaner and the material should not be washed with soap. To thoroughly clean you may disinfect it with a small amount of Isopropyl alcohol.
The Alien seems to be made in a different material than the other Fleshlights, or maybe it’s the color.. It dries very quick and it does not get much sticky. That is great! Other sleeves get super sticky and must be dusted with corn starch to get back the feeling of a brand new sleeve.
During cleaning I also noticed that the blue case is not perfectly sealed like my other one as the water seeps through when the end cap is on. This might be a small fault in my case, but I feel it is worth to mention.
TO WRAP IT UP
Quality wise both the packaging, case and sleeve seem to be very well designed and they say it can last a lifetime. I am sure it will! There’s nothing quite like it out there, and it certainly deserves a place in my toy collection. Buy this for a truly out-of-this-world experience!
Update: at the point of writing this the sleeve was not at all sticky. But after a couple of months, it did become more sticky like the rest of the sleeves. Simply dust on some cornstarch to fix the problem.
