How the Fleshlight sex toy can to be

The Fleshlight sex toy is probably the biggest thing ever to happen to male sex toys, and its inventor Steve Shubin could be looked upon as the Steve Jobs of sex toys. It all started some 14 years ago when Shubin’s wife discovered she was pregnant with twins. That was the good news. The bad news was that she was over 40 at the time. She'd already had several miscarriages and the twins were identical, meaning that they were developing in the same sac. These factors added up to a very fragile, high-risk pregnancy, with a big risk of miscarriage. This meant no intercourse until the twins were born. So did the Fleshlight sex toy idea immediately come to mind? Not exactly, but it did set Steve Shubin thinking about a realistic alternative for real pussy.

Thanks to an honest approach with his wife regarding sexual matters, the subject of a sex substitute came up obviously it did not mean resorting to a mistress or hookers. On the other hand inflatable dolls with plastic vaginas were too tacky and lousy.

But he was still far away from the concept that led to the Fleshlight sex toy . He first thought of realistic body sculpture with orifices that could be used for solo sex, He figured the project would take a couple of months and cost about $50,000 to get a marketable prototype and go into business.

To arrive at the finished product it actually took 18 months, US$750,000 and a lot of experimenting along the way – including taking the molds of several stripper’s pussies in night clubs.

The Flashlight canister idea came about because Shubin recognized that guys like complete discretion in their masturbatory habits and a sex toy that looks like a flashlight seemed like a great ‘tool for your tool’. Since the introduction of the canister Fleshlight sex toys have also appeared as authentic looking beer cans, Succu Dry, the fanged blowjob toy sex toy for vampire lusters, and even an alien Fleshlight with blue pussy flesh.

5 Fleshlight sex toy facts you may not know:

  1. The Fleshlight sex toy is actually bigger than a real female vagina with exaggerated lips and clit
  2. Steve Shubin’s eldest son makes the molds for Fleshlight, and also makes full face and body molds for top Hollywood movies.
  3. The patent description for the Fleshlight sex toy is ‘a discreet semen collecting device.’
  4. Before making the world’s best selling sex toy for men, Steve Shubin was catching bad guys as a SWAT officer for LAPD.
  5. Fleshlight has to date sold over four million units around the world and it ships more to Alaska than any other US state.

About the Author

Hi, I'm Joseph O'Connor. I am a twenty-six year old man from Texas, USA. I fell into writing about sex toys when I was looking for a way to both try new things and explore my body... Things progressed rapidly. It turns out there aren't many (straight) men that can talk about sex the way I do without getting downright ridiculous. I'm always reading more/learning about the human body and sexual response and always looking for ways to improve my sex life (and that of those I come in contact with).
