A Fleshlight is a male masturbation toy that looks, at a glance, fairly similar in shape to a chunky flashlight (though some are definitely a bit more, er, obvious). In our round-up of the best Fleshlights below, you'll find different masturbation sleeves designed to simulate either vaginal, anal or oral sex. Some are textured, some are smooth. Some are enclosed, and some are see-through so that you can watch what's happening, if that's your thing.

Fleshlights are among the world's best-selling men's sex toys and are made from a soft, pliable material designed to replicate the feel of a partner's skin. Whether you're exploring a specific sexual fantasy or you're looking to increase your staying power during penetrative sex, they're fun to use during masturbation.

They're sturdy, durable, and some are suitable for use with condoms. Design features like removable inner sleeves makes them fairly simple to clean.

Other brands make similar types of male masturbation toys too. These include Tenga and Lelo – the latter also makes some of our favourites vibrators – and you'll find both in our round-up of the best Fleshlights below. Before we get to those, let's delve a little into what you need to consider when buying a Fleshlight...

 Choosing the best Fleshlight for you

This seems like a no-brainer, but when choosing from among the best Fleshlight masturbation sleeves, you need to think about what type of sex you're looking to simulate and how you want it to feel. There are Fleshlights designed for vaginal and anal sex, and some that provide an oral sex sensation. Look at the texture of the inner sleeve and the length to ensure you get something that suits you.

Cleaning is an obvious concern with this type of sex toy, but it's easy to do with most Fleshlights – just remove the sleeve from the outer shell, rinse it through with warm water, then let it dry. That's it. 

Specialist cleaning products like Fleshlight's own Fleshwash Sex Toy Cleaner available to buy from Amazon are good for a thorough wash – never use soap, as it can affect the sleeve material. Fleshlight's Renewing Powder is another product to consider, as it reduces the tacky feeling of the Superskin material after washing. You can buy this powder from Amazon for around £8.

A little lubricant makes these toys even better, but only used water-based lubes here. Anything else can damage the sleeve. 

When it comes to using your Fleshlight, it's worth warming the insert before using it. This makes it feel more natural and flesh-like, and while you can get specialist tools for warming your toy, letting it rest for a while in warm water is usually enough.

 The best Fleshlights to buy now 

Best Fleshlight: Fleshlight Flight Pilot

1. Fleshlight Flight: Pilot

The best Fleshlight overall

Reasons to buy
+ Super-soft inner + Stealth packaging + Universal opening + Adjustable suction 

Our top pick for the best Fleshlight is a top-seller and for good reason. The company has taken its original model and refined every aspect, starting from the super-discrete outer and working all the way through. The feel of the inner is softer than before, with a uniquely textured canal that promises oodles of pleasure.

Clear material and a non-anatomical opening means this is more the stuff of your fantasies than a replication of anything real – it's suitable for any man, whatever their tastes. And there's plenty of room for experimentation, with a twist base to alter the level of suction as you play.

Best Fleshlight: Lelo F1s Developer's Kit

2. Lelo F1s Developer’s Kit Red

This app-controlled male masturbator uses AI to enhance your play

Reasons to buy
+Range of functions+Great for endurance+Tracks performance

Lelo has some significant prowess in the female sex toy department (the Soraya 2 is our top pick for the best vibrator, after all) so it should come as no surprise that this big step into the male market is something special. 

Equal parts masturbation aid (with a washable spiral-textured silicone sleeve viewable through a window), endurance trainer, performance tracker and pleasure giver, the Lelo F1s promises some highly unique sensations.

It includes both vibration functions and the company’s SenSonic tech, which fires ultrasonic waves all around the penis. All of this is monitored by a series of ten sensors and can, if you choose, be controlled automatically by an AI ‘cruise control’ engine.

Lelo is even releasing a software developers kit (SDK) so that the code-savvy among you can develop your own pleasure apps for your new favourite masturbation toy.

3. Fleshlight Go Torque

The best Fleshlight for watching all the action

Reasons to buy
+Translucent materials +Distinct sections +More compact +Adjustable suction 

Amongst the most accommodating male sex toys around, with a generous 9 inches of length to its bumpy canal, the frosted, translucent Torque is absolutely perfect for a little partner play given that it offers an exciting view of what's going on inside.

Unlike many, there are a number of individual sections all along its sleeve, offering distinct sensations depending on how far you take it.

That see-through case isn't, by design, the most discreet (you'll want to hide it well when not in use) although it's a tad smaller than most.

The transparent inner, with a tight gender-free 5mm opening which Fleshlight describes as 'cyclonic', is still made of Fleshlight's much-loved SuperSkin material so you won't be losing any sensation.

4. Tenga Spinner

The best masturbator for men who love highly textured toys

Reasons to buy
+Easy cleaning+Exciting action+Unusual textures+Easy to dry

A different take on Tenga’s often out-there designs, here, with a male masturbator toy that employs one of three soft geometric patterns around its inner canal. Take your pick from the triangular Tetra, hexagonal Hexa and, er, shell-shaped Shell designs.

The twist, as it were, is the coloured spring-like apparatus around the outside of the Spinner, which causes it to twist as it’s moved up and down. Gripping the base or the tip changes the pattern for some interesting variety.

The Spinner is easy to clean by simply running water through it, and there’s a drying base included to ensure it’s completely water-free before you add any lubricant; that’s something you’ll definitely need, because this is certainly on the tighter end of these devices.

5. Thrust Pro Ultra Zoey

The best Fleshlight for beginners

Reasons to buy
+ Great price + Highly varied canal + Quick adjustments + Vibrator compatible 

Reasonably priced it may be, but Thrust's super-soft vagina masturbator is highly popular, and a great first step if you're not yet ready to invest in the more expensive best Fleshlights on offer. 

In addition to the varied canal, which is packed with bumps and ridges, there's a small hole on the side of the outer casing which can be covered to quickly increase suction, and space at the base of the sleeve itself for a bullet vibrator if you're taking things to the next level.

Do note, though, that there's no lube included, so you'll need to pick some up.

Best Fleshlight: Tenga Flip Hole

6. Tenga Flip Hole

A Fleshlight rival that's good for varied masturbation

Reasons to buy
+ Complex interior + Easy to clean + Extra pressure buttons + Various textures 

Available in a range of colours with varying textures and tightness (with the Black, the tightest, noted as perhaps a little too snug for many), Tenga's Flip Hole is a slightly different take on the standard formula. 

The whole case flips open for cleaning and to give you a clear view of what lurks inside, and when it's clipped shut there's a series of buttons on the hard outer case. Squeeze them in use, and they can help increase pressure on certain key areas.

7. Fleshlight Quickshot Vantage

The best Fleshlight for travel use

Reasons to buy
+ Works well with a partner + Multiple modes + Open-ended + Reversible 

Deviating from the standard form factor, Fleshlight's Quickshot is an open-ended device that's much smaller and perfect for travel.

You can leave one cap on and use it in the same way as a traditional fleshlight, with varying suction depending on how tight the end cap is applied, but remove both and it becomes much more flexible.

Flip it over to vary the way it feels, remove the outer ring for a looser experience, or really take advantage of the shorter straight-through inner canal when playing with a partner.

Best Fleshlight: Fleshlight Girls & Fleshlight Fleshjack Boys

8. Fleshlight Girls & Fleshjack Boys

The best Fleshlight for exploring new sexual fantasies

Reasons to buy
+ Realistic outers + Option of vagina or anus + Varied inner experiences + Switchable inners 

If you're looking for something truly anatomical, Fleshlight has the answer. The company has licensed and moulded realistic replicas of many porn stars, both men and women, and applied them to their traditional structure.

Each of these, in addition to that true-to-life outer, carries a one of a vast array of unique inner canals for a different experience. Fleshlight also sells just the inners on their own, if you're interested in creating a collection.

If a fleshlight is your route to indulging a fantasy, there's a host of names on offer, so whether it's Riley Reid and Alexis Texas or Kevin Warhol and Brent Corrigan, you'll find someting – or someone – to suit.
