  • Ask Fleshlight

    Hey everyone,

    The purpose of this post is to answer questions many of you have about our product. While I can't promise satisfactory answers 100% of the time (because there may not be a good answer), I will try my best to help.

    Also, I will not be able to give you timelines for anything. We always have multiple projects going on, making deadlines a little complicated. As with any company, there is a lot of bureaucracy to wade through before making changes. Just be patient - if we say we're working on something, we definitely are. It just may not be in the time frame you were hoping for!

    Question 1: Why can we buy the "sleeve only" option for the FLGs but not the EU FLGs?

    Answer: We are aware of the discrepancy and are working on making this a possibility for the EU girls.

      Question 2: Why are the EU FLGs only available with the Lotus texture?

      Answer: The EU girls have 3 available textures.

      Lotus Only: Carla Cox, Tanya Tate, and Sweet Sophie

      The others have an option between Lotus, Primal, and Vortex (this includes Ariel, Suzie Carina, Eufrat Mai, and Suzie Carina)

        Question 3: More colorful cases?

        Answer: We change our colors every once in a while, but new colors (such as red) tend to be associated with different lines of our FLGs. The Red Case was released for the presidential election in 2008, but it involved a vote, where you decided whether you'd rather have the blue case or the red case. There was a poll on the ILF website and there was one vote allowed per email address. The blue case won, resulting in it being added as a standard case option for the "build your own FL".

        The red case was also added to the Fleshlight web site on June 9, 2010 for the Private FLG line, and ended when their contract ended.

          Question 4: Shipping costs to Canada and Australia are high!

          Answer: Yes, we are aware of this and promise that we are working to make it more manageable. We don't want the prices that high either because then we lose business! We are on your side on this topic and are working to get it fixed.

            Question 5: Can we get the Mini Lotus back??

            Answer: Your cries have been heard and we are working on it! I can't reveal anything yet but fingers crossed...

            Also... no promises. It may not work out but I have told the higher-ups.

              Chris - there isn't a good answer for why we don't offer the original texture for the FLGs. Each of the girls has a contract for us to create her Fleshlight with a certain inner texture. Deviating from that would involve a lot of legal crap.

              At some point, the variety of options that you guys want becomes impossible to manage. Remember, we are still a small-ish company, and our factory is not like you would imagine a typical factory (think typical assembly line where each process is automated and over-seen by hundreds of workers). This means that our product is higher quality than those that are shot out of the factory on a conveyor belt, but it also means that we're slightly more limited in terms of variety. We do our best to offer something for everyone, but it means that we can't make each orifice with 10 different inner textures.
              I basicly have to agree with Sarahs post. Even if ILF is interessted in making as many customers happy as possible, there is simply no way to get that one solved. Unfortinitly, you can always expect, that for every item which is going to be released, there will be at least 1 guy who says "can we have this....and this....oh yeah and then....maybe we can turn it upside down" or or or.

              Unfortinitly, for every idea, somebody has, there needs to be a market - a matching point between supply and demand.
              Maybe you know about the old ICE FL line, which has had 3 different orifices and about 5 different inner textures, after a few years, the matching point was obviously not generating revenues, so ILF pulled the plug and released the Crystal ICE FL - obviously with more success then before.

              And cause ILF is not doing their business for charity reasons, they are obviously interessted on massive sales, not to store items (and in the end MONEY, cause every item has its production costs).

                  Just so everyone is aware, I am going to try to keep this thread clean-looking, so I will be deleting comments and putting them into the q.a. format. No information will be lost I promise, but that might be why I've deleted your post.

                    Re: Ask Fleshlight

                    Question 6: Could you guys bring back Eva Angelina, Raven Riley, and Lupe Fuentes? Perhaps not forever, maybe something like a Limited Edition?

                    Answer: Usually, when we stop offering some of our FLGs, it is because their contract has expired with us. In order for us to start re-selling them, we'd have to renegotiate a contract with them, which some girls may be unwilling to do. As a company, we tend to be more forward-focusing... we like to bring new stuff that you might find you like better than the old, rather than focus on what we have done in the past.

                      Question 7: Why are the FLGs not available with the Original Insert?

                      Answer: Each of the girls has a contract for us to create her Fleshlight with a certain inner texture. Deviating from that would involve a lot of legal crap.

                        Question 8: Can we get different inner textures for the butt and mouth orifices?

                        Answer: Again, we're limited by the amount of variety we can do. We try to offer something for everyone, but we cannot always satisfy every demand. I will talk to someone about why we only offer the Swallow and the Forbidden for the Mouth and the Butt, though. No promises!

                          Question 9: Is the Flight going to have an optional clear case?

                          Answer:
                          I will talk to someone about this.

                          Edit: We are discussing this possibility, and have a prototype for it, but it may not be approved for production.

                            Question 10: What is this 1 week free MILF Hunter thing that appeared on my order of the MILF Hunter Fleshlight?

                            Answer: The MILF Hunter subscription is to a porn website called MILF Hunter. It is a promo that is listed right on the main page of the MILF Hunter Fleshlight... it says that you get "One week free subscription to MILF Hunter with a purchase of a MILF Hunter Fleshlight" right on the "click to buy" page.

                            However, just to reassure you, we do not share any of your information with the MILF Hunter website. Once your order is complete, we send you a user name and password that is good for one week only, which you can use to sign in to the MILF Hunter website for free. We do not share your email address, so you will not receive any spam from them. Nor do we share your credit card information, so you will not be charged anything after the week is up.

                            If you want to use it, use it. If you don't, delete the email we send you and that will be the end of it. I'm sorry you don't like our products, but if that were really true, why are you buying one now?

                              Question 11: Why do you guys keep breaking your promised release dates???

                              Answer: We know this is annoying, it is for us too. We don't like going back on our word. Unfortunately, some things are out of our control. When releasing a new FLG, it involves a lot of different parts. We have to involve lawyers, our design team, the girl's contracting company, the girl herself - pretty much every single part of our company is involved in each girl's release. One of the major hangups we've been having is problems with the contract. Basically, we think we have everything lined up to release on time, and then issues are raised about the contract that take a lot of time to iron out. Like I said, we hate pushing back release dates too, but sometimes we just can't help it.
