  • Steve Shubin, Fleshlight Inventor

    According to Wikipedia, the Fleshlight was invented and patented by former police officer Steve Shubin in 1998. There is an interview with him somewhere on the internet but I'm having a hard time finding it. Can anyone provide a link?

    Also, is Steve Shubin the CEO of ILF as well, or did he merely patent the product and pass the company off to someone else?
    The patent that Shubin made for the Fleshlight states it as a "device for discreet sperm collection", not a masturbation toy for recreational use. Are there cases where Fleshlights are actually used for collecting sperm for medical purposes such as sperm banks?

    I recall seeing something that said "Steve Shubin, Inventor/CEO." So I'd say yes to that one.
    It does pretty much discreetly collect my sperm. Then I just rinse it down the drain afterwards. Also, that's a pretty good excuse if it's ever found. Throw some medical jargon their way and say it's for sperm collection.

      I seem to recall getting one of those email sales from ILF and it was signed Steve Shubin, and the coupon code to enter at checkout was "shubin".

      I also remember reading here in the forum, a post from one of the CS reps saying that he has seen Shubin around the office.

      I just found the post it's from last March, here it is:

        I doubt there would be a market for collecting sperm at a sperm bank using a Fleshlight, the biggest issue you would run into would be a sanitation one. Not to mention, you don't really get much money for donating sperm, so it's not like they could give you a free Fleshlight when you go to donate.

        Plus there's the problem of the sperm's survival. The Fleshlight material is a synthetic of some kind, and synthetic materials are pretty good at killing off sperm. Much like latex is deadly to the little swimmers, you can't donate sperm using a regular condom and having sex, you need a special condom designed for that purpose.

            After a series of questions, they hand you a cup (similar to the urine sample ones at the doctor's office) and escort you into a room. They provide some censored porn magazines (tape or stars over the nipples and such) and you basically just ejaculate into the cup. When you're done, hand in the cup, collect your money, walk out of the sperm bank, and wonder why the hell you went through all that in the first place.

              Sounds like a fun way to make money. Do I have to tell them I've had a vasectomy?

                Yeah, I'd say that's pretty important, considering how there'd be no sperm in the semen afterwards.

                      Ditto, thanks a lot for that link Bolt, I was having a hard time finding it.

                      It would be cool to see Shubin's presence here on the forums and to get to know the inventor of the Fleshlight on a personal basis with loyal FLyers, but I'm sure he's much too busy to spend his time here on the Fleshlight Forums

                              It was a couple months ago, prior to the launch of Paris as a Fleshlight Girl.
