What You Need to Know About Lube and Your Fleshlight
Lube is just for anal, right? Try again. Lubricant is perfect for any sex thing you decide to do, alone or with a partner, and that includes getting busy with your favorite Fleshlight. Before you shrug off the slippery stuff as NBD, find out what lube can do for you and your stroker. You might be surprised at how important it really is.
The first thing you need to know is that you can and even should use lube whenever you play with your Fleshlight. Yes, technically the material is soft enough that you might not need it, but that won’t last forever. Plus, lube reduces friction which means as good your Fleshlight is, lube can actually make it feel even better.
Using lubricant may also help your Fleshlight last longer, because it reduces friction. That’s because constant stroking and rubbing could cause microtears to form. Over time, with nothing between you and the material, further friction breaks down the material, and it just doesn’t feel as good as it once did. Even worse, it might wear out sooner than usual.
Only Use Water-Based Lubricant
Fleshlight’s Real Feel Super Skin® sleeve is made to feel like a real body. The material is soft, pliable, and porous. This means that the safest lube is water-based. Silicone and oil-based lubricants can interact with the material in a negative way, causing it to break down or tear over time. You spend too much money on a Fleshlight to ruin it because you used the wrong lube.
Water-based lubricant is a good, all-purpose lube. It’s safe with any toy you have and it washes off easily. Even better, if you get it on your clothes or bedding, it won’t stain. Remember, not all lubes are the same, so if the first one you try doesn’t feel good, keep looking. There’s a perfect lube for everyone.
When in Doubt, Use Fleshlube
Want to make sure your lubricant is formulated for your Fleshlight and feels good? Go straight to the source. That’s right, Fleshlight makes its own lube. You don’t have to worry about whether it works for your sleeve, and you can try it multiple types to find the one you love most or to have new and exciting experiences.
- Fleshlube Water is a good, basic water-based lubricant. It’ll work for any stroker and any sex toy.
- Cool things off with Fleshlube Ice. This lube creates a tingling sensation to take your experience to a new level.
- Bring the heat with Fleshlube Fire — a warming lube designed to get you hot and bothered.
- Fleshlube Slide is Fleshlight’s anal lube. It’s safe to use with your Fleshlight, but its thicker and slicker, making it perfect for anal penetration, too.
Clean Your Fleshlight
You should always clean your Fleshlight, but this is especially true when you use lube. The good thing about water-based lubricant is that it washes off easily with soap and water, even if you get lazy and let the sleeve get dry and crusty. If you wait too long to clean your stroker, you’ll definitely need to use renewing powder to get it soft and smooth again, though. This is true whether you use lube or not. But lube and spunk make a bigger mess.
If you don’t have time for a deep clean, at least do a quick rinse with soap and water to get all the fluids off. Let your Fleshlight air dry but take a few minutes to scrub it down before you use it again to make sure it’s squeaky clean and ready for you. It makes for a more hygienic and better experience when you do.
Long story short: use lube when you use your Fleshlight, and make sure it’s a water-based lubricant. If you’re not sure what to try, start with Fleshlube because you know it’s safe with your toy. And always, always clean up when you’re done. There’s nothing complex about it, but it’s easy to forget when all you want is to get yourself off. If you do these things, though, you’ll have even more fun with your Fleshlight, and it’ll last a lot longer!
