Fleshlight Go vs. Fleshlight Flight

Fleshlight Go vs. Flight—quick take

Comparisons between Fleshlight’s two compact models—the new Fleshlight Go, and the new-ish Fleshlight Flight—are inevitable. To the vast majority of guys who don’t need any more than 5 or 6-inches of tactile sensational thrills, both the Flight and the Go offer more discreet designs, easier/more discreet storage, and better ergonomics for partner play. So, if you’re having trouble deciding between a Fleshlight Flight and a Fleshlight Go, which is best? It depends on your priorities. Here’s how I see it.

Fleshlight Go Ice for partner play

Best Fleshlight for partner play ever…the Fleshlight Go Ice Torque

For partner play: Fleshlight Go Ice

As we mentioned in our original full-size Fleshlight vs. Fleshlight Go comparison, the clear see-through Fleshlight Go Ice is probably the very best Fleshlight for partner play. Whether you’re looking for a gift that you can use on your boyfriend, husband, or special guy friend, or if you’re buying for yourself, here’s why the Fleshlight Go Ice takes the prize in a two-person scenario:

A view of the action: Being able to see what’s happening inside makes the experience more intimate and shared. Plus, instead of just blindly providing motion, your partner is able to actually “work” the internal textures and respond to what causes the best reactions from you. And then there’s getting to see the “fireworks” at the end, which is completely obscured and left out of any experience with a regular non-see-through Fleshlight.

A friendlier size and a more ergonomic shape: Although both the Flight and the Go are less awkward and cumbersome for a partner to operate with one hand than a full-size Fleshlight, the “handle” of the flashlight-shaped Fleshlight Go has a wider range of positions that are comfortable to grip than the tapered Flight. The easier it is to handle, the more lively and uninhibited the moves will be.

And also, it makes your penis look bigger: I’m not sure if this is an intended effect or a happy accident, but somehow the see-through sleeve and the clear case magnify your penis once it’s inside. It’s not the number one reason to get the Fleshlight Go Ice, but it’s a novelty that can be fun for you and your partner as well. (The full-size Ice doesn’t seem to magnify quite the same way, BTW.)

The Fleshlight Flight Pilot is probably the most discreet Fleshlight design.

Doesn’t even look like a Fleshlight, really. Nor does it look like a flashlight. The Fleshlight Flight Pilot.

For discreet design: Fleshlight Flight

If your main priority is to keep your Fleshlight a secret, the Fleshlight Flight Pilot is your model. Both the Go and the Flight are definitely more discreet, easier to hide, and travel-friendly than a full-size Fleshlight, but the Fleshlight Go is still the classic and well-recognized Fleshlight shape—only smaller. The Fleshlight has become so popular and well-known, that you’d be safe assuming that any adult under the age of 40 is probably going to know exactly what it is when they see it. (Others may actually confuse it with an actual flashlight, which could be extremely embarrassing when the lights go out.)

The Fleshlight Flight (especially the Pilot model in the black case), on the other hand, is an intentionally radical design departure from the original Fleshlight. Not only does it look unlike any other Fleshlight, you’d be hard-pressed to recognize it as a sex toy at all unless you had at least shopped the Fleshlight site and entertained the idea of buying one yourself at some point. It’s actually a very sophisticated, modern, and subtly masculine product design. It’s more likely to be mistaken as an air purifier or grooming kit than a flashlight, but you’d still be well-advised to keep it stored in your underwear drawer unless you’re cool with having it become a conversation piece.

The Fleshlight Flight allows more air to pass through for drying.

The airy interior of the Flight makes it dry faster. No wonder it’s the one I use most often. Compare the restricted path of the Fleshlight Go models. (And uh…is it just me, or does the deep focus of this photo make these look like really weird donuts?)

For easy cleaning and fast drying: Fleshlight Flight

(Note, my experience is only with the Flight Pilot (black case) texture so far.) This could also fit under the category of “discreet design”, because the faster you can get a Fleshlight cleaned up, dried out, and stored away, the more discreet it is. But, the Flight is as easy to clean as it is fast to dry. A look through the middle (in the photo above) of both the Fleshlight Go and the Fleshlight Flight shows exactly why the Fleshlight Flight is the top choice if easy cleaning and fast drying are your priority. The wider entry of the Flight and the comparatively simple texture means that water, biological material, and air can all move quickly, easily, and unimpeded all the way through. Also, the textures inside the Fleshlight Go models are more intricate, which means that extra care has to be taken to make sure that no biological matter and lubrication are left trapped behind any of the shapes inside, and the entries are more constricted, which severely limits airflow and slows drying time. Although there is one little section of the Fleshlight Flight Pilot texture that is tricky to clean, the translucent nature of the Flight’s sleeve material allows enough light through to makes visual inspections a lot easier than all but the clear, see-through Ice model.

How much easier and faster?

Here are the drying times I’ve experienced while working on these articles. I’ve compared non-assisted airflow and the use of a small USB-powered fan:

Normal Airflow Fan-assisted
Flight Pilot <1 hour 15 minutes
Go Surge 5 hours 1 hour
Go Torque >2 days 8 hours

In stark contrast, the Go Ice Torque takes a ridiculously long time to completely dry, even with a fan. (I’m not sure why. The full-size Ice took longer also…maybe it’s the material.) However, one of the best reasons to get the Ice is for partner play, and presumably, if you have a partner who is using it with you, you’re comfortable enough with that person seeing the sleeve sitting out to dry randomly. But if you have a roommate situation or some other living situation where the cleanup and drying time of a Fleshlight have made you hesitant to pull the trigger, the Flight Pilot is your Fleshlight.

And then there’s this: The Fleshlight Flight has become my standard, personal, use-when-I-want-to-use-a-Fleshlight (meaning, because I want to, not because I need to primarily for the sake of writing an article about it) Fleshlight specifically because it is such a breeze to clean and so fast to dry. I do have a lot of company stopping by sometimes—grandparents, parents, nephews, friends-of-friends and people with their kids—all people who, I believe we can all agree, should never see your sex toy. So, if I’m going to enjoy the benefits of a Fleshlight more often than resorting to my own hand, it needs to be a Fleshlight that can be put away quickly.

The Fleshlight Go Surge

This “Surge” sensation is sensational. (wamp-wamp) Seriously though, I can’t get what it feels like out of my mind…new and different.

For the most exciting sensation: Fleshlight Go Surge

If a new and exciting sensation is what you’re looking for—a third dimension between your hum-drum hand and full-tilt-boogie sex—and none of the other factors in this article are more important, the Fleshlight Go Surge is (in my opinion) the way to go. Of the various Fleshlight, Tenga, and other feel-good products of this nature that I’ve test-driven, the feeling of the Go Surge has really burned into my mind as being a particularly unique, luxurious, exciting and immersive sensation. Right now, if using a Fleshlight was a once-a-month kind of treat, drying time wasn’t a big factor, and I could only keep one Fleshlight, the Fleshlight Go Surge is the one that you’d have to pry out of my cold, dead hands.

See the original Fleshligh Go vs. Fleshlight article for an in-depth description of the Surge sensation.

Of course, this is where writing about sex toys gets tricky. There is no situation where “different strokes for different folks” rings more true than when you’re talking about what a sex toy feels like. We can all pretty much imagine correctly, even before experiencing it, that a Fleshlight is far better than your own hand in terms of a luxurious sexual sensation, and that actual body-to-body sex is one of the most wonderful sensations a human can feel, but in between all those givens, things get a bit subjective. Although the Surge is probably my favorite Fleshlight sensation so far, the Fleshlight Flight Pilot doesn’t leave me wishing for more by any means. In fact, other than the original smooth, non-textured Fleshlight, I haven’t felt anything but good—just different degrees and flavors of good, and preferences emerge. So ultimately, take a look at the different textures on the site yourself. If one intrigues your imagination and causes a stir down there, go for it. But, if you have a penis, and if I may make a suggestion, I think the Surge will make you feel some things you didn’t even know were possible—as if you had a whole new penis.

Mini-gina? If you want a more compact Fleshlight with a vagina-look to it, then the Fleshlight Go Surge is your only option at the moment.

For something that looks like a vagina: Fleshlight Go Surge

And finally, if having a visual appearance that resembles a vagina—though, a very petite vagina—is one of your priorities, of the compact Fleshlights available, the Fleshlight Go Surge is currently your only option.

Personally, it’s not one of my biggest priorities since it takes away one of the things that makes the compact models more discreet. As long as it doesn’t resemble something that I’m personally not into (like a butthole…that’s just not my thing), I’m good with a non-descript happy hole. And, some guys are actually going to be more comfortable with something non-descript for fear of (or, due to the reality of) their wives or girlfriends insisting that their vagina be the only one that gets played with in bed. But, for a lot of guys the visual is part of the appeal of Fleshlights. If that’s you, the Go Surge is probably your go-to compact Fleshlight model for now.

    Just purchased and have been “loosening out” the sleeve

    I recently lost a 2 month old Ice Lady due to small mold spots appearing probably due to the inability to let dry properly (room mates)

    May I ask what process do you go through to for both


    Drying (preferably air dry):

    – Big fan of your work inspired me to buy my first 1

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Drying continues to be the one down-side with these things and I really wish Fleshlight would do more to create solutions to the issue. Anyway, my process is simple but strategic. As far as washing goes, it depends on how frequently I’m using a Fleshlight. (I go through periods of using one a lot over the course of a week, and then I might not use one at all for a week or two or maybe just use one once, and then the next week, use three different ones.) If I’m cleaning it and I think it’s likely I’m going to use it again later in the day or again the next day, I typically just use water to clean it. One tip I’ve read and that I’ve started doing myself, is to do an initial rinse with cold water (if you finish inside) because cold water is more effective at flushing out the bodily fluids, whereas warm water actually causes it to coagulate and cling. After the cold rinse, I’ll just rinse with really warm water and then shake dry. However, if I’m going to be storing it for a while—if I don’t think I’m going to use it again within the next couple of days, I’ll also use the Fleshwash toy cleaner just to make sure it’s getting deep-cleaned before storage. The Fleshwash is worth the purchase in my opinion. Just $6.95 and I am seriously still using the same bottle I bought four years ago. It really does leave the sleeve feeling a little fresher and newer than if you use water alone. You use it just as you’d use soap on your hands—rinse the sleeve well with cold and warm water, spritz with the Fleshwash, work the cleaner all around the sleeve, including the inside, and then rinse off and shake dry. I don’t know why so many guys seem put-off by cleaning, this really isn’t any harder than washing your hands. The drying, on the other hand, is a different story if you don’t have privacy.

      There are three parts to my drying strategy when I don’t have the luxury of just leaving the stuff out for as long as it needs in order to dry: concealment, drying in shifts, and air movement. Of course, the more visible water you can shake or wring off the sleeve right after washing, the faster the air drying will be. Ideally you’ll find a place where the sleeve can “hide” out in the open, or at least someplace with more airflow than a drawer or box. In my case, I use the top shelf in my closet. It’s high enough that you can’t see what’s at the back of it unless you go right up to it and really try to look. I create a clean spot to set the sleeve by laying down a small clean towel or a clean folded pair of boxers. In front of that setup, and at the front edge of the shelf, I place a couple of small boxes. You can use whatever, just something that makes sense to be in a closet. I’ve used a stack of towels, folded shirts books, etc. You just want to obstruct vision while leaving the area behind it open so that air can flow. If you’ve got enough trust in your household, hopefully you can leave the house and let it sit back there and take whatever time in needs. Depending on atmospheric conditions where you live, it could be dry within a few hours or maybe 24 hours.

      To supplement/accelerate this slow-dry process, or if you don’t have enough privacy that you can feel confident leaving your house without it being discovered, you might have to dry it in shifts. If you have to leave the house, dry it as much as you can before stashing it someplace private (like your underwear drawer), then when you come back and can “guard it” with your door locked, perhaps while you’re sleeping, studying, watching a movie—whatever you normally do in your room alone other than using your Fleshlight :)—set it out and let it dry more until you have to leave and stash it again. Repeat the shifts of stashing and drying until you are sure it’s dry and can leave it stashed. This may sound tedious, but once you get into a routine/habit of it, it’s not too bad, especially if you speed the process with more air movement during your drying shifts using something like this 6″ USB-powered fan. It’s small, quiet, and can be positioned very close to the sleeve on a desk or shelf.

      A little fan can make a big difference—exponentially decreasing the amount of time needed to dry. I can use the Fleshlight in the evening, clean it, set it to dry with the little fan in front of it, and when I wake up in the morning (or sometimes even in the middle of the night when I wake up to pee), it’s completely dry and can be stashed away in its super secret hiding place. Sometimes it will even be dry after an hour or two. If you have a sleeve with a constricted entry, prop it open using something flat and wide in order to increase airflow with the fan. I play guitar so a guitar pick works perfectly. Alternatively, if you get a sleeve that is shipped with a plastic tube inside, keep that tube and cut a little 1-inch section off of it and insert that into the entry during drying. This speeds up drying even more.

      Thanks for the comment and I’m glad these articles have been helpful!

  2. TakeFlightPilot says:

    Hi, I have a question regarding the Fleshlight Go. I have a 2″ wide diameter, 5.6″ girth (at widest point), and about 6.5″ length with a slight downward curve. The Flight was one of my choices until you measured the circumference of the case for “A.” below which came out at a mere 6″ or about 1.91″ in diameter. Obviously that wouldn’t fit. Unfortunately, that was also the cheapest of the three (Flight, Go, Original) in the UK at the time of writing.

    So I’m turning away from that and looking into a Surge Go or a Pink Lady Vortex instead. Funnily enough, right now Amazon sells the Pink Lady Vortex (full-sized) for 32GBP and the Go Surge for 45GBP. However, I want to proritise discreteness above all else so I’m gunning for the Go Surge, but I don’t know if it would comfortably take a 2″ diameter.

    The bottom line is this: Do I get the Pink Lady Vortex or the Go Surge? Can you provide me with a measurement of the Go Surge the same as you did with “Mr. A.”?

    Thanks in advance!

    • In Bed Staff says:

      So sorry about the delayed response. I actually saw your question pop up on Reddit as well and it looks like the guys in r/fleshlight already got you the info you needed. Just in case though, I went ahead and got those measurements and have included an image below similar to the others. For the Go Surge (and Torque), the rear entry circumference is 5″. So you’re right, a Go Surge wouldn’t work for you, you’re going to need a full-size Fleshlight. If the anatomical likeness is important to you, then that’s really going to be your only option I think. If it’s not, you might take a look at their Fleshskins product, which has a case but for storage only. During use, it’s just a sleeve with a grip, so your girth and curve wouldn’t matter—that sleeve should easily expand to fit comfortably. I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t vouch for how the sensations compare. I’ve read a few good comments here and there though, but again, if the anatomical likeness is a must-have, the Fleshskins would be off your list.

      • TakeFlightPilot says:

        Thanks for the reply! This was very helpful. I ended up finding a good deal on Fleshlight’s Girls “Butterfly” with a slashed price + student discount. Bought ID Glide lube and got a vibrator for free on top of free p&p!

        Thank you so much for replying and helping me out, even going so far as to check reddit. The Butterfly certainly fits (with length to spare!) and is not uncomfortable in any way. It stimulates the head like crazy though, which is a sensation I’m not quite familiar with, but it has provided me hours of fun.

        Thanks again for your help and input!

  3. Terence says:

    I was looking for the difference between the GO and Flight and your article exactly fits the bill. It’d be more complete if it mentions two more things below.

    Fleshlight Flight also has a clear see-through model, the Aviator so the GO Ice Torque isn’t the only best choice for partner play. I play alone and like the see-through experience a lot.

    Fleshlight GO Surge also has a Butt Surge variant which is what I prefer. I want the texture of the Surge but initially was disappointed about the vaginal orifice until I found out about the Butt.

    I’ve ordered the GO Butt but am still deciding between the Flight Aviator and GO ICE. Your test on drying time plus the slightly smaller form factor of the Flight make me lean towards the Aviator initially. However, the Aviator only or mainly has interior rings not nodules which might make it less interesting. I can’t find a detailed review or a clear picture of the interior. The GO ICE interior looks very similar to the full-sized Fleshjack Ice Jack which I already have.

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Thank you very much for the contributions and insights. Indeed, the clear Flight model is another option for see-through partner fun. It is a somewhat recent addition to the product lineup so it wasn’t around when this comparison was originally done and I haven’t gotten my hands on one to compare yet. I loved my regular Flight Pilot though—easily my most-used item, to the point that I actually wore it out and need a new one. I guess I’ll have to check out the new Aviator too.

      Also that’s great info about the butt option for the Go Surge. (For other readers happening upon this, I believe that’s only available as an option here through Fleshjack.com rather than Fleshlight.com)…is that the one you ordered?

      I can confirm that—with the Fleshlight Ice at least, it is basically the exact same texture/pattern as the Go Torque Ice. I have both the full-size Fleshlight Ice (Pure entry) and the Go Torque Ice and though the Go Torque Ice feels a little bit nicer because it’s a bit more snug, the sensation of the texture isn’t very different so I think you’d find greater variety by going with the Aviator. Also, though I don’t have personal experience with the Aviator yet, I wouldn’t discount a more simple texture desogm too much if that’s what is making you hesitant. Sometimes less is more. I was very skeptical of the STU because it looked so simple, but it causes so much sensation at once that I struggle to go beyond 90 seconds with it.

      Thanks again for sharing your insights.

      • Terence says:

        You’re welcome and thanks for your response. Yes the GO Butt is a Flashjack. You made two very good points about the Flight Aviator and it would be a better option for my next purchase.

        I wish Fleshlight/jack would expand the Flight and GO series a lot more as I and presumably many others would prefer the smaller models. I have quite a few original Fleshlights/jacks but hardly ever use them as they’re too big to play with (I’m Asian and my size is slightly over the higher figure you quote from Men’s Health) and to clean. It doesn’t make sense when the vast majority of men can only reach up to two-thirds of the Fleshlight’s interior. I fit the Flight perfectly and the Tenga is also a good match.

        • In Bed Staff says:

          I totally agree on how they need to expand the GO series, and for all the reasons you list. I’ve also seen quite a few comments out there in the different forums etc. that I monitor on these topics and lots of guys are saying the same. Like…once you get more than one ore two Fleshlights, you’re talking about some serious real estate being taken up in your underwear drawer or wherever you keep them. They’re just the right size for most guys.

  4. Terence says:

    Thank you so much for the quick response! I read through this article and the other one comparing the Go models to the original Fleshlights. I appreciate how informative they are, because I was on the fence about which model to order at first. The cleanup and drying time is definitely a huge factor for me (which is why I ordered the Flight Pilot) since I’m a 21 year old who still lives at home with mom and pop. My dad is totally cool with it, in fact I even told him that I had ordered one haha. But it would be so awkward if my mom went perusing around my room and discovered this toy sent from the heavens. It would make for a rather embarrassing dinner conversation to say the least. But I digress. Thank you again so much for the knowledge and information you’ve been generous enough to share with all of us fellow horny lads! And as always, keep wankin’.


  5. Terence says:

    Hey so I just have a couple quick questions. I recently ordered the Flight Pilot, but I’ve also been doing some comparative research with the Go Surge/Torque Ice since they have similar features. I’ve read different information regarding the internal and total lengths of these 3 models, so I just wanted to confirm: What are the internal sleeve lengths of both the Flight Pilot and Go Surge/Torque Ice? Also, what are their total lengths when inside their respective cases? The image at the top of this article depicting all 3 standing next to each other appears that the Flight Pilot is the most compact, correct? Thank you in advance for your help!


    • In Bed Staff says:

      Correct, the Flight Pilot is the most compact. In general, it’s about an inch shorter. The Flight’s internal sleeve is 6.5 inches and the Go sleeves are 7.5 inches. If the Flight had a flat end cap, it would be 7.5 inches, but the end cap angles and extends upwards another half inch (just for aesthetic effect, I presume) to make it a total of 8 inches. The Go case is 8.5 inches total.

      Great question! Thanks for posting. Someone else asked about this recently on reddit.com/r/fleshlight, so I’ll see about adding that info to the article.

      • Terence says:

        I just have one more quick topic of question. Are the 2 cleaning products on their site (both the Fleshwash and Renewing Powder) really necessary? What substitutes could be purchased at a local grocery store or pharmacy? And what are your recommendations for optimal methods of cleaning? Again, thank you in advance for your assistance!


        • In Bed Staff says:

          We really need to a get an article just about cleaning Fleshlights up on this website, but here’s the short version:

          1. Rinse it out with cold water first. Warm water causes semen to coagulate and become sticky, so it’s easier to flush it out with cold water first.
          2. Rinse it out with warm water to knock out anything that the cold water didn’t get.
          3. Inspect the inside with your eyes and clean fingers to make sure you got all the stuff out.
          4. Use the antibacterial toy cleaner if you have it, suds and scrub, rinse again with water.
          5. Shake it all off and leave it out to air dry. Making sure it dries completely is one of the most critical steps.

          If you need to speed up drying time, you can use a little USB-powered fan to help move air through the inside. Depending on which model you have, you might need to place something in the entry to prop it open to help encourage air movement. With full-size sleeves, I suggest cutting a 1-inch section of the tube that came in the Fleshlight sleeve and inserting it into the opening during air drying. If you play guitar, use a guitar pick, etc. Another thing that you can do is invert the sleeve from the end (not the entry) and pat excess water using a clean, lint-free towel or maybe even a paper towel. Use this process sparingly because you do risk some stress on the sleeve by doing this.

          As for the cleaning and care products, the Renewing Powder isn’t necessary. All it really does is make it soft to the finger-touch and makes a nice tactile impression when you come back to it again a few weeks, days, or hours later. Basically, it cuts down on stickiness. It isn’t really required for basic maintenance and doesn’t add anything to the sensation during usage. In fact, when you use too much of it, it combines with the lube and makes for a cloudy lube mess, which isn’t very appealing. But, if you do want to try it out, the Renewing Powder is honestly just 100% corn starch and is available at any grocery store.

          I do think using the antibacterial toy cleaner (Fleshwash) is a good idea though. Although I’ve cleaned Fleshlights with just water for months at a time without a problem, I do feel like they are cleaner when the wash is used. I do know that regular hot water from the tap is not hot enough to kill bacteria, so the Fleshwash puts my mind at ease. The only thing to watch though is that the FDA (in the U.S.) has banned the use of Triclosan, the antibacterial agent used in the Fleshwash and practically all other antibacterial soaps on the market. I wouldn’t let that stop you from getting some now, but keep an eye out for a replacement in the next year. Negative Triclosan effects are disputed, but to be on the safe side, just make sure you rinse it off thoroughly after washing with it. The bigger concern driving the ban is actually the introduction of antibacterial agents into the environment which could result in more antibiotic-resistant bacteria. (Sorry this just got super unsexy, but health comes first.)

          I’m not sure if any other toy cleaners have been tested with Fleshlights or not. That might be something we need to look into.

  6. Paul says:

    Are there other sleeves you can interchange with the flight pilot or is there just one sleeve and that’s all. What if I get tired of the same sleeve after awhile. I have wanted to buy one of these for a long time but get confused when it comes to the sleeve part. I would like something firm, not too tight but not too loose and as realistic as possible.

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Unfortunately they don’t sell sleeves à la carte for the smaller models like the Flight and Go. I really wish they would, so do a lot of people, because these smaller ones are turning out to be really popular and for most of us guys, it’s really all the Fleshlight we need in terms of length. The full-size models are massive, but they are the ones to go with if you want to be able to swap out for a wide variety of different sleeve textures.

  7. A. says:

    I’ve been looking over the various designsthat Fleshlight offers and, honestly, almost each model looks great. My only concern is regarding circumference. My shaft is right at a 7″ circumference with my head fluctuating between 7.5″-8″. I am leaning toward the Flight model because I like a quicker dry time and a more discreet/compact design. I wasn’t initially concerned that my girth could even be a factor in whether this model might be a good fit. However, after reading several reviews and seeing the issue brought up multiple times, I am now concerned.

    Has anyone with a similar girth had any negative experiences regarding the design being too tight? I’m not against a snug fit, but something that was tight enough to, in essence, act as a cock ring and enlarge me even further is definitely not the desired end result.

    If this has been an issue with anyone, what other designs have worked better?

    Thank you so much for such a great amount of useful content and reviews, this website is a very great asset. 🙂

    • In Bed Staff says:

      As the uh…chief tester of Fleshlights for this series of articles, I’m pretty much textbook average in all my intimate stats, so I can’t really provide any feedback from the perspective of an above average guy, but here’s what I do know. From what I can tell, you’re certainly above average in circumference (my hat’s off to you), but if your measurements are correct, you may actually exceed what a Fleshlight can accommodate. I’m pretty certain, the Flight and Go models are out of the running. Even the entry ring circumference on the Fleshlight Flight case—the widest point that you would have to pass through)—is about 6-inches. (See first picture below which shows the circumference of the entry measured without the sleeve.) That doesn’t even account for the additional constriction that is added by the Fleshlight sleeve. And then it tapers down to less than 5.5-inches.

      measurment of Fleshlight Flight case entry circumference

      I’m even a little unsure of how comfortable a full-size Fleshlight would be for you. I took the measurement of the inside of the handle of a full-size Fleshlight Ice (see below), and it tapers from about 7-inches from the widest part, down to 6 3/4-inches at the end. And again, this doesn’t even include the additional pressure from the sleeve.

      Circumference of inside of full-size Fleshlight (Ice)

      So, maybe double-check your measurements to be sure they’re accurate and judge for yourself. Unfortunately, most encased sex toys for guys probably aren’t going to be able to accommodate such a degree of girth. But, that doesn’t mean that you have zero options for an enhanced experience. Frankly, the Fleshlight sleeves can still be incredibly pleasurable on their own. (Sometimes I pull the sleeve out just for something different and it’s quite nice.) You could consider trying a full-size Fleshlight and just use the case for storage if using it with the case isn’t comfortable. I do think the sleeve will stretch to accommodate you without a problem, but I’d look for one on the site that appears to be wider inside such as the Wonder Wave. (From experience, I will say that you should probably avoid the Vortex. Even I find it a bit tight.) As an alternative, you could also look into some non-encased masturbation sleeves such as the Tenga 3D series. I haven’t tried them yet, but they’re on the list for future In Bed tests. I do like the Tenga Eggs a lot (article in the works) and could be worth a shot considering they can be bought for as little as $3-$7. They aren’t as immersive as a Fleshlight, but they’re still a treat over your hand.

      Failing those options, quality male vibrators such as the Pulse II are finally making their way onto the market, so there are more pleasure options for guys of various sizes than ever before.

      You might also visit Reddit’s Fleshlight sub and pose your question there [NSFW]. reddit.com/r/fleshlight We’re active there and there are bound to be some guys who frequent the sub who are close to your specs and who could provide first-hand experience.

      Good luck and thanks for the comment. Follow up with us to let others know what you decided and how it went if you have time.

    im not sure if you have tried the destroya sleeve, but if you, or anyone else, has, would any of the other sleeves made for the go and flight match up with or surpass the texture of the destroya sleeve? im very curious because i really enjoy that particular sleeve, but i feel like the original fleshlight is a little too big for me, and i was looking to the go or flight for a tighter fit.

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Can you give us like…two or three weeks? The Destroya is on the list to try and feature because it is hands-down, one of THE most talked about and requested models. It’s literally the next priority review for the guy toys. At the moment though, I can’t really say how it compares. The Go Surge is fantastic though and it’s one of the most intense ones I’ve experienced myself, personally, but it’ll be a couple of weeks before I can get something posted up about how it compares to the Destroya. As soon as I can give you a direct comparison, I’ll come back here and post it though. Would you like us to e-mail you direct when that’s available? Thanks for the question!

    Hello, you make a crazy job! I wanted to ask you, what would you recommend as a first purchase between the Original and Flight pilot?

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Between those two I would recommend the Flight Pilot. I would avoid the original smooth. It’s actually not that great. First, it doesn’t feel like much because there’s no texture, and it’s really hard to keep it lubricated because without any texture, there’s nothing to keep the lube trapped inside out. The original smooth acts sort of like a squeegee with the lube. The one I recommend the most often for a first purchase though is actually the Mini Lotus. It was featured in our original Fleshlight Deep-Dive review. It’s their most realistic texture, but it can also feel enhanced depending on how you use it. It’s not crazy intense, but it’s still miles ahead of the original smooth, and your hand, of course. Hope that helps. Thanks for the comment!

    Hey, new to your magazine site and very appreciative. Just ordered a Quickshot and Torque (wanted the Surge but the partner play aspect won out, hopefully they will make more clear textures). I want to make two points. One, I really wanted to use your site’s links to the products so you would get appropriate credit, but I couldn’t stand all the straight imagery, so I went to Fleshjack instead. Much more comfortable there! Maybe you could provide gay/straight links? Second, I was interested in the “build your own” feature for a future purchase, but it’s not available on the Fleshjack site. Maybe you can ask them about that? Thanks for your detailed reviews and great community site!

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Thanks for the feedback and great suggestion! We really intend to be inclusive, but your comment makes me realize that we have fallen short with some of these more recent reviews. We made it a point to provide links to Fleshjack in our original regular Fleshlight article, but for some reason it didn’t get mentioned on this one and some of the other more recent articles. I think that because the Quickshot and Torque are anatomically nondescript, distinguishing the destination links didn’t occur to me. But yeah, you get something quite different when you go to the different sites. Also, honestly, I think us straight guys can sometimes require more cajoling and encouragement to go for a sex toy, whereas gay guys (the ones among my friends, anyway) seem to be more liberated and less apologetic about taking ownership of their sexual pleasure—hence the over-indexing on the straight side. But, I’m definitely going to take a look at tweaking some content with your comments in mind. Having broad appeal is one of our big goals, so this is definitely important to us.

      Also, good point about the Build Your Own tool not being on the Fleshjack site. It has been a while since I’ve been on there, but I swear it used to be. No idea why they would change that. We don’t actually have any insight on the inner-workings of the company—we do use some affiliate links, as you noted, in order to avoid having to jam up the site with ads—but when we do product reviews we try to make sure companies don’t know that the products are being purchased for a review. However, I’ll see if I can pass the question on via Reddit or something, where they do tend to be fairly responsive.

      Again, thanks for the constructive comments and for checking out the site!

    Hi, which fleshlight is beter fleshlight go torque or go surge?

    • In Bed Staff says:

      In terms of sensation? That would be the Surge in my book. The Torque feels nice and will get the job done, but I’ve had some real OMG moments with the Surge. Also, the Surge dries a LOT more quickly after cleaning. The Torque takes forever to dry. The main reasons to choose the Torque over the Surge is if you really like the see-through aspect of the Torque, which can be fun for yourself and for a partner. But if neither of those considerations are a big deal, I think the Surge is the better of the two. Since I did the review, of those two, the one that I keep coming back to use now and then is the Surge. I haven’t used the Torque since using it specifically for the review. Hope that helps.

  12. mark says:

    Many thanks for your excellent reviews of the FLs. It really helped me in finding the right model for me…most likely it’s going to be the Flight. I will also need to order some lube….any suggestions which of the lubes they sell is the best?

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Thanks for the comment and we’re really glad you found the articles helpful. A crazy amount of work actually goes into these…it’s not just all test fapping and fun, so it really is great to read that people are finding it helpful. (After all, it’s not the kind of thing most of us want to ask our friends about.) Sorry for the delayed response. I put lube recommendations in a reply to your second comment. Thanks!

    Slightly girthy “Mr. Five and A Half” here, reporting back with my Fleshlight experience.

    I ordered the Flight with the Pilot sleeve along with some Lube and the Shower Mount (it was a combo pack) via a link that I cobbled together from another that I found on your web site (http://www.fleshlight.com/flight/?link=1130891). I hope you got appropriate credit 🙂

    My initial thought was that the orifice was ridiculously small since it measures 1/2 of an inch in diameter. And, something I had not considered earlier, with the Pilot sleeve removed the opening of the plastic body of the Flight measures 2 inches in diameter. With myself being 1 3/4 inch-ish in diameter I was thinking that this purchase could have been a mistake.

    Under the belief that I’d be making a bit of a mess, I trekked off to the shower in order to try out the mount and experience some hand-held action. After sufficient lubrication was applied to me and the Flight I am pleased to report that I did, indeed, make a mess and it was fantastic!

    As my cock entered the Pilot sleeve, it bulged a bit but stayed in place. As my length is not extraordinary, I was in no danger of bottoming out when I went “balls deep” on occasion. And it appears I didn’t over-lube, as nothing squirted out the front or back of the Flight as I pumped away.

    When hand-held the Flight made a bit more of a slurpy noise than when placed in the Shower Mount, but that’s probably because I was using it more vigorously.

    Drying time took almost two hours for me. The Flight’s reduced size allowed me to store it easily, along with the accessories.

    This is probably as small of a Fleshlight as I dare use. I’m glad I took the risk with the Flight, and that it worked out. I would expect the larger models are able to more easily accommodate the girthy. Knowing the dimensions of the plastic case opening would be an invaluable aide in the process of choosing.

    My three recommendations? Get a Fleshlight. Measure twice before purchasing. Use it frequently.

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Thanks a bunch for the followup, Johnny! One of the most frequently asked questions that we get related to the Fleshlight reviews is pertaining to size, and girth in particular. All a reviewer knows is what they experience based on their particular size, so having other guys weigh in with their stats and their personal experience is extremely helpful for everyone. I’m glad that you weren’t let down.

    • mark says:

      Hi I am about to order the Flight myself. Any suggestion which lube to order?

      • In Bed Staff says:

        Sorry for the delay. The regular Fleshlube “Water” is actually really good. It’s also great for regular sex etc. as well as with the Fleshlights. If you want to get something local instead of ordering the Fleshlight brand, another one that is very similar is KY Ultragel. It’s about $7-$9 for 1.5 oz., and is available practically everywhere (in the US, anyway)…Target, Walmart, Walgreens, and even a lot of grocery stores. Of the ones I’ve tried, I would avoid Astroglide. In my experience, it gets very sticky and dries out quickly.

  14. Johnny says:

    *** so … I hit “post” before I wanted to — below is what I truly wanted to send to you, as my question was related to the Fleshlight Flight, not the Go — if you could ignore the previous post and put this one up, I’d appreciate it ***

    The various internet search engines all point to your excellent text and video reviews of the Fleshlight products.

    My birthday is approaching and I have decided to treat myself to a sex toy.

    The Fleshlight Flight and Go models have my interest because of their (1) smaller, more discreet size and (2) shorter drying time during cleanup that you experienced.

    When my cock is erect it measures 6 inches in length, just a bit over 1 3/4 inches in width (diameter) and 5 1/2 inches in girth (circumference, which we all know is diameter multiplied by pi). Skyn Large condoms for me 🙂

    This is where your opinion comes into play.

    From your experience with the Flight and Go products, would someone of my size be able to use the Fleshlight Flight, the smaller of the two? Would it be too small for me?

    Your reviews are truly informative. “Keep it up!”

    Thank you.

    • In Bed Staff says:

      First, happy upcoming birthday! A sex toy is definitely a great way (in my opinion) to treat yourself to something nice. Plus, it’s one of those things that is probably best for YOU to give yourself unless someone knows you extremely well. Second, thanks for the comment. Third, sorry for the delayed response.

      Also, thanks for reminding me how the girth measurement goes. I honestly don’t remember my full specs offhand but I can see how that would give people more context. So, off to the restroom I randomly excused myself to establish some context. I’m a little under 6″ in length, about 1.5″ in width, and just under 5″ circumference. (Specs might a little higher when actually excited though…this was more like a clinical self examination, but close enough to get some numbers. Just not so much in the mood at the moment.) To me, the Flight feels like it could accommodate a little more circumference without much trouble. The material feels a little more flexible to me. The Go Surge is a little more grippy, if not a little more tight, compared to both the full-size and the Flight. But I don’t think the extra girth you have compared to me is so extreme that it would make it unusable. If you like the idea of pleasantly tight, I think it would be fine. You might go through a bit more lube with it than you would a full-size model.

      If you go for it, please come back and share your experience here. There are bound to be other guys wondering the same thing and all I can convey is what I know based on the size that I am. I hope it’ll be a good experience for you, but let us know regardless.

  15. question says:


    Does the Fleshlight Go fit to the original Fleshlight shower mount or the shower mount adapter meant for the Flight Fleshlight? Or does it not fit to these shower mounts?

    • In Bed Staff says:

      If you check out the Fleshlight Go product page and scroll down towards the bottom, you’ll see that they feature the Shower Mount + Flight Adapter. That, plus the fact that the Flight and Go end-caps can swap back and forth perfectly because they are the exact same size, leads me to believe that the Go will work with the Shower Mount Flight Adapter. The end of the Go is definitely smaller than the full-size Fleshlight, so I think the adapter is definitely needed. Hope that helps! Thanks for commenting/asking!

  16. JD says:

    Sold… I actually already own a Flight Pilot. A little apprehensive about the diameter of the Torque as I’m already rather snug in the Pilot. I might try switching the inserts between the two for solo play. Really though, I’m getting the Torque for partner play for the reasons listed here. Thanks for the quick write up!

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Awesome! Thanks for the comment and thanks for mentioning that you’re planning on getting the Torque for partner play. We want more people to see the potential of toys (including toys for guys) to help couples expand their menu of fun, and comments like yours really highlight how many people are looking into it.

  17. JoeSomebody says:

    How does the snugness of the entrance and tunnel (length) of the Surge compare to the Flight?

    • In Bed Staff says:

      Thanks for the questions and sorry for the delayed response! To me, the Surge feels more snug at the entrance than the Flight. This photo really highlights the difference between the tightness of the entries. It’s a view from the end-cap side that brings the opposite ends (which would be the entries) into focus. Notice how much more constricted the Go Surge is compared to the Flight on the left. This is also why the Surge takes longer to dry than the Flight—less airflow due to the tighter entry. Plus, the material of the Flight sleeve is a bit more pliable and jiggly, which makes it feel more gentle. But, the snugness of the Go Surge is definitely a nice sensation.

      As for the length of the sleeve (great question), the Flight sleeve is one inch shorter (6.5″) than the Fleshlight Go (7.5″).
