Fleshlight: It's a bum on a stick!

It's not unusual to be loved by anyone, especially if that anyone is made of seven inches of rubber

While dildos have long been the sex toy of choice for gay men, there is a new player on the block who's about to give these old stiffs a run for their money, honey.

The Fleshlight is a man's arse on a stick. Well, it's a little more designer friendly than that. It's a 'wanking sleeve' that is made from Reel Feel Super Skin material, which in layman's terms means it feels as close to skin as rubber can. The original model was shaped as a lady's garden and aimed at straight men. Well, it didn't take a genius to figure that gay men would run a mile from a faux fanny, so they released a man-butt version and now everyone is happy.

For discretion purposes it's shaped like a large flashlight, so the days of  Auntie Mavis opening your sock draw and clutching her pearls over a 12-inch rubber wang are over. The real magic is on the inside. The inner cone of the Fleshlight is lined with the Super Skin and designed to stimulate your man rod from tip to trunk as you jerk yourself off with it. If there were a Nobel Prize for sex toys, the Fleshlight crew would be honoured. Perhaps the biggest selling feature of the Fleshlight is that you can make a 'safety deposit' without the need for a withdrawal, alleviating any potential Something about Mary moment.
