What started out as a “device for discreet semen collection” patented by designer Steve Shubin in 1998 just keeps growing in popularity and influence. The Fleshlight, the revolutionary male sex toy treasured by horny guys the world over, recently announced that it intended to move beyond simple novelty manufacturing and into live content production by partnering with acclaimed streaming website Live Gonzo. This partnership, along with a few new high-profile Fleshlight Girls and the launch of a Pirates line of pocket pussies developed with Digital Playground, proves that Fleshlight is not a company willing to sit idly by and watch its customers become bored with the same old product. With limited edition plastic cases “forged in honey and gold” available for the Stoya, Riley Steele, and Jesse Jane models (all are stars of DP’s Pirates feature) and the possibility of adding your own two cents to an interactive Live Gonzo hardcore video broadcast tailored for Fleshlight-augmented viewing, these two innovations would be enough for most sex toy manufacturers; but not for Fleshlight, no sir!
Unveiling a Tori Black model at the tail end of 2010, the Fleshlight folks knew they’d have a tough year ahead. So, like any sensible adult entertainment professionals would, they called on two of porn’s most dazzling performers, each one a multiple AVN Award-winner: the Japanese-American reigning queen of hardcore, Asa Akira, and everyone’s favorite MILF (and clearly the most fuckable of all Sarah Palin impersonators) Lisa Ann. That’s right, folks, for just $79.95 you now have the option of inserting your erection into an elastomeric gel mold that, at least on the outside, looks and feels (almost) exactly like the mouths, pussies, and tight, tight assholes of the incomparable Lisa Ann and Asa Akira. Me, I still beat off the old fashioned way, but with Fleshlight continuing to smash sales records and wow customers, that might change soon enough.
