The Fleshlight is a brand of artificial-vagina or artificial anal opening sex-toy.


The Fleshlight is a masturbatory aid, used by inserting the male penis in its opening.[1]

Product history[edit]

The Fleshlight was designed by Steve Shubin[2] who was granted a patent in 1998 for his invention, as a "device for discreet sperm collection",[3] and is marketed by Interactive Life Forms.[4] It is named for the flesh-like material used in its inner sleeve, as well as the plastic case that houses the sleeve, which is fashioned to look like an oversized flashlight. The inner sleeve is available with vulva, anus, or mouth orifices, and comes in colors of flesh from a variety of ethnicities, as well as see-through, and 48 different internal textures.[5]

In 2011, the company that manufactures Fleshlight sent a complimentary package of its products to the members of the SEALs team that killed Osama bin Laden.[6]
