The Great Fleshlight Experiment II


First Impressions.

Well it's a lot larger than both Marilyn and I expected, that's for sure. And surprisingly heavy once the repetitive motion kicks in. (You know the one) It also has that smell. That smell that every other fake body part sex shops have been selling us have. So far these have been my only complaints. Considering it's ostensibly a “pocket pussy” and I only have those two complaints, (Large isn't, in fact, a complaint [according to my wife]) This toy is stacking up pretty well.

The Experiment Begins.

I have now used the Fleshlight two and a half times. (“What?” you ask. “Let me finish,” I demand, and shove you down the stairs. [Editors note: The violence of Cooper does not represent the level of violence in the entire Life on the Swingset family. That said, If you don't let him finish, we may shove you down the stairs ourselves.]) The first usage right out of the box was in an attempt to include Marilyn in the first playtime. After all, I was there, cheering her on, when she and Holly used the Feeldoe together….but that's a story for another time. So, we played a while, Marilyn taking care of the strokes, but ultimately realizing that, while this is fun, she is way MORE fun, which is why the Fleshlight had to watch from atop the nightstand.

Later in the evening I tried it out for its intended purpose. Solotime. It is soft and smooth on the outside, as well as in, and is surprisingly yielding. You don't expect it to open as wide as it does. (“That's what she said!” “Shaddup, you!”) Generally, when trying a new technique in the past (or even with other sleeves) I ultimately abandon them for “the sure thing” technique that I know works. The Fleshlight surprised me by producing an orgasm on its own before I even considered switching.

Night two's orgasm took a little longer, and introduced me to the difference of making that hand motion with (basically) a flashlight in hand. Sore forearms, I'm afraid. But again, it delivered. I'm sure it may fail its task at some point, but not so far. So, two days into the 30 (and wondering if I should just make it for Lent and do 40 days….hmmm) and I'm impressed with this new toy.

Kudos to Marilyn for finding me a kick-ass Valentine's Day gift. (And don't worry, I won't be writing about this thing daily…now that the first impressions are over, I'll write as new thoughts pop up.)
