The Top 10 Fleshlights & How to Choose Between Them

Written by Jen Schwartz, Lovehoney Editorial team. Originally published 01/14/2024

Fleshlights are one of the most recognizable penis pleasure products on the scene and with good reason! Comprised of hyperrealistic sleeves housed in portable, hygienic cases, these strokers are a classic sex toy staple.

So, what exactly is a fleshlight? Technically, Fleshlight is a famous brand of strokers and compatible accessories. However, the stroker company’s brand recognition became so enormous that the word “fleshlight” has somewhat transcended the company, frequently being used as a catch-all term for all strokers in that particular style.

As a sex toy category, fleshlights are characterized by their removable sleeves made from supple skin-like materials that mimic the feel of a real lover. While once associated with cases that look like flashlights to the untrained eye, design innovations have expanded stroker case styles for varying consumer needs.

Fleshlight Features and Differentiators

You may think if you’ve seen one fleshlight-style stroker, you’ve seen them all, right? Nope, not even close! There are so many variations out there to suit a wide array of desires. Consider the following fleshlight differentiators when making a purchasing decision.



Sleeves are arguably the most important component of fleshlight strokers, as that’s where the magic happens - more specifically, the internal portion of sleeves. Fleshlight sleeve interiors differ mainly in texture and size.

Texture is a big player in fleshlight enjoyment, and boy, are there plenty to choose from. Sleeve interiors can be smooth, ribbed, dotted, spiraling, or a combination of various textures. Each variation produces different sensations; some designs are a close replica of vaginal or anal walls, while others simply focus on patterns that feel fantastic.

The left photo is only a small example of how different sleeves may be on their insides. Intrigued by the pictured sleeves? Go grab the one that speaks to your peen! Shown from top to bottom: THRUST Pro Ultra Kelsi Realistic Vagina Cup, THRUST Pro Ultra Coco Ribbed and Dotted Ass Cup, Fleshlight Pink Lady Stamina Training Unit STU, and Fleshlight Riley Reid Utopia Texture.

Fleshlight sleeve size, ranging in insertable length and circumference, is a major factor for both stimulation preference and comfort/usability. Longer sleeves may accommodate the entirety of the penis from base to tip, whereas shorter ones might leave some of the base or shaft unstimulated and provide flexibility of stimulation location if they’re open-ended.

The circumference of a sleeve’s interior will impact fleshlight tightness. Some sleeves offer an extra-snug grip, while others may feature a looser fit with more give. Your own girth (paired with sensation predilection) will determine which size is a better match for you. Those with thick schlongs might require a wider circumference to avoid a painfully tight squeeze. Likewise, individuals with thinner johnsons may seek out super narrow sleeves to ensure they get enough stimulation.

Entry Points


Hole size, aesthetics, and the number of entry points all play a part in finding the right type of fleshlight opening for you.

Just like stroker sleeve interiors, fleshlight openings deviate in size offerings. You’ll want to consider the same aspects you did regarding sleeve size when determining how snug of an opening you’ll appreciate.

Fleshlights will either have a single-entry point or be open-ended, the latter providing two possible holes to penetrate. Traditional fleshlight strokers with only one opening are ideal for folks who are all about penis head pleasure, as the sleeves maintain their soft, squishy stimulation even at their ends when users bottom out.

What dual-entry fleshlights lack in comprehensive stimulation they make up for in versatility. Strokers that boast two different lifelike openings, like the Fleshlight QUICKSHOT Stamina Training Unit Compact Male Masturbator, make it easy to simulate multiple penetrative sex acts in a single session. Open-ended strokers are also popular amongst couples, making BJs and HJs easier for the giver and even more stimulating for the receiver.

And then, of course, there’s the visual appeal of the opening’s face. Fleshlights offer two main design options: anatomical and non-anatomical. If you prefer toys that look like toys, you can choose from sleeves with unobtrusive, sleek holes that don’t resemble body parts in the slightest. Those who do enjoy a realistic look are in for a treat. You can find anatomical fleshlights that mimic the appearance of any human hole you please with designs so detailed they rival the real thing. You can even find fleshlights modeled after your favorite adult film stars that use their actual parts as a mold for your toy!


Excluding size, which is more of an overall product factor than that of just the case, fleshlight cases differentiate primarily in opacity. Stroker cases will either be opaque or translucent, each with its own draws. See-through fleshlights are great for those who like to watch the action, adding another level of stimulation to your stroker fun, while opaque cases are best for discretion. Essentially the choice boils down to whether you place a higher value on stealth or visual stimulation.

Top-notch covert fleshlights


When fleshlights first came on the scene, you could only find them with manual controls, but now users can set the pace in a bevy of ways. Sex tech advancements allow fleshlight strokers to do all the work for you if you so please. Suction, vibration, milking - you name it, and you can find it in a fleshlight! There are even high-tech fleshlights that connect with VR porn for immersive solo sessions and ones that pair with other sex toys like insertable vibrators for long-distance fun.
