    Dear ILF, the truth about the Lotus...

    If your favorite pornstar who is not already an ILF model got a fleshlight tomorrow and it was lotus only, would you buy it?

    Feel free to explain why you voted the way you did.

    This is attempt to show ILF that we want new textures, not more models that are released "lotus only".

    Re: Dear ILF, the truth about the Lotus...

    I never bought the Lotus, as i already own the Mini-Lotus. Anyway, ILF is moving into a strange direction for quite a while already, by keep on pushing the old Lotus texture.

    The FLG line has become that popular, not only because of the FLGs own popularity and the FLGs name, no, it also happend because of the unique signature textures - which most of them have. The BBW FLG is the very first FLG without and signature texture (apart of the EU line off course) and IMHO opinion is the wrong sign which has been given by ILF.
    If they run a new project, which they did with a BBW, why do they stick 1) to the old texture and 2) why do they offer only ONE orifice and 3) why is there no signature texture ?

    By moving on that path, the sales canīt go the right way IMHO.

      I already have two Lotus sleeves-- a pink Raven Riley and a fleshtone Stoya. I really don't have a need for another for a few years.

      I can understand why ILF pushes the Lotus, too. It's not an intense texture, and feels somewhat girl-like, so it's good for starter sleeves. The idea is to hook first-time buyers with the fantasy element, thus the Euro and plus-size models.

      Anything new in the way of models or textures involves risk to ILF. That's why only the superstar FLGs have signature textures and additional orifices. Even creating a new pussy mold is costly-- flying the model to Austin, doing the initial casting, sculpting positives into something suitable for master molds, promotional photography, etc. As a result, ILF is counting on sustained popularity of vulvas and a middle-of-the-road texture to drive those initial sales. Even though we crave new textures as a group, ILF also needs to expand its customer base. Now, let's say Carla Cox signs on as a contract girl for Digital Playground and rockets to superstardom by double-teaming a stunt cock with Stoya. In that case, ILF may design a signature texture as it may increase sales.

      That said, I would like to see some new texture options for the originals, and a re-sculpt of the original vulva is long overdue. A refresh of the Sex-In-A-Can line is also in order. Because, while ILF needs to keep bringing in new customers, they also need those new customers to become repeat customers. That doesn't necessarily mean a signature texture for a relatively obscure niche performer, though, or someone not very well known in ILF's home market.

        I'd actually be interested in an update to the Swallow. I have my first in the mail (should be here by Monday!) but based only off the picture of the texture, it doesn't really look like the 'most realistic oral sex experience in existence'. Well actually, to be fair, it may be the most realistic one. But I don't know of too many people whose throat starts 6" back. Unless I'm measuring wrong (which is possible). Plus, I would think a tongue on the bottom (instead of super ribbed 360) would be more realistic.

        I'm not trying to trash talk the Swallow (like I said, one on the way, very excited about it, heard lots of good things) but I like an odd amount of realism, and feel like it could be even better.


        ... maybe I should wait until I try first before posting this... too late.

          I own the Lotus (Jenna Haze) and one of the sleeves I dislike and never use. It's now napping in storage and I will never buy another one - no matter what amazing porn star's pussy is on it.

          Vortex or Wonder Wave should be the standard texture for non-signature FLG units - that would make me buy more units for sure.

            I have a Stoya Lotus already and despite it being one of my favorite sleeves (I guess I'm in the minority here, as most people I've talked to about it don't like that texture), I don't have any need to buy another sleeve with the same texture, even if it has a different orifice mold.

            Personally speaking (and bear in mind, I do like the Lotus), I think if you're going to have us shell out extra cash for the FLGs (and I don't mind doing so -- I have four different FLG sleeves), we should have more of a choice when it comes to internal textures.

              I have a Jenna Haze lotus and I used it many a time just because of the fact it is a Jenna Haze FL. The Lotus node is what makes that sleeve, for me at least, and it is just in too many other sleeves now a days to warrant the need to use the Lotus. Once I got my Jenna Haze Maze, while not the most flooring sleeve ever, I haven't used my lotus once. The reasons for me to use it are gone. The Lotus node is in other, in my opinion better, sleeves and I have another Jenna Haze FL that is more versatile when I want the Jenna Haze mold.

              There is at least one girl which has already come out with just the standard lotus for her vaginal mold (Anna Lovato) that I have passed up just because of the fact I already have a lotus and it doesn't interest me anymore. There is no girl currently that would change that fact if ever.

                It seems a lot of customers dislike the Lotus. While some like it and some do not which make it one of those sleeves that is either loved or hated by each customer who spends they're hard earned money to buy one, I don't believe I will ever buy one. I am new to fleshlights, I am 19 years old and a virgin. I bought my first order last Friday, a BYO pink lady vortex which according to USPS tracking should arrive by the 5th. But anyway, I am not concerned with whether a sleeve feels realistic or not. There is a lot of hype associated with the Lotus about this. My concern is with how a sleeve feels, gets the job done, and will allow me to practice my stamina so I will last longer when I finally do have sex.

                The next sleeves that I have on my wishlist to buy is the Destroya. Might not feal real, but intense no doubt

                  I have a Lotus and I don't think that it's terrible, it's just poorly designed and mis-marketed. When prepared correctly, it's a warm, wet hole to poke with your penis into like any other, but I digress. The Vortex was my first FL back in '08 and it has stood the test of time. I wish that I had gotten it in a Pussy or Butt though, because the old Stealth orifice has way too much drag.

                    Re: Dear ILF, the truth about the Lotus...

                    I would have to say no, what pornstar or celebrity my fleshlight is molded after makes no difference to me. I mean, sure its nice to know that I have a fleshlight molded after the beautiful jenna haze. However it plays no role whatsoever when I fly. Last night I used a milf hunter sleeve and imagined being with trina michaels. Then I brought the flight into the mix and imagined also being with katie kox, after being caught having sex with trina. The point is, the mold means zero to me so long as its not molded after a guy. I guess the real question is... How often do you look at your fleshlight when its in a liberator mount and your flying hands free? My answer is almost never, I just let my imagination take over no matter what the sleeve or mold is that I'm using. Thats why using a frankenstein or zombie doesn't bug me one bit.

                    There is no way that I would buy a second lotus just for the mold of a specific pornstar or celebrity.

                        Re: Dear ILF, the truth about the Lotus...

                        Well, see, this is my problem. ILF simply don't have a lot of choice when it comes to models.

                        I voted the second option, because for me, the fantasy element is 60%, if not 70% of the experience. I have a Lisa Ann Barracuda now, and the idea that I'm "having sex" with "Lisa Ann" is a huge turn on, that helps immensely when the physical stimulation alone is not enough. I also love licking and sucking her clitoris and labia, and fingering her entrance before I start. The Lotus I had (I think) was a Puma Swede, and she's less of a favorite (still gorgeous, but I've seen less of her), and prior to that I had an Eva Angelina (whom I go back and forth on). As you can probably tell, I tend to enjoy experienced and/or older models much more, and ILF has been lacking in this regard, especially for non-Lotus textures.

                        Eva and Puma are gone, retired with their exclusive textures, and Tanya Tate, one of my favorite Euro girls, has apparently merited only the Lotus--I wanted her mouth badly. I missed the boat on the Private sleeves (and the awesome red cases), so all I have left is Katsuni Lotus Garden (again, another vagina only model), or the MILF Hunter, along with TT's lotus sleeve.

                        I've seen rumblings...Jessica Drake (sorry, jessica drake), Nina Hartley...these are both models I would love to see get all three molds (or at least mouth and vagina) and signature texture(s), and I'm somewhat pleased to see the VNA girls coming--hopefully, they can get at least one signature texture to share.

                        I think ILF really needs to step up the molding of well-known stars, not just young new ones whom I don't even know, let alone want to spend over $60 on. And when they do mold a model, mouth and vagina should be standard, with anus being standard given the model's consent.

                        Regarding signature textures, I have always thought that these should be openly interchangeable and customizable. If for example, I want a Barracuda texture, I shouldn't be forced to get Lisa, I should be able to get it on Stoya, or Jesse Jane, or this new Bibi Jones model. This is something I would gladly pay $10-$20 extra to be able do, combine my favorite texture with my favorite girl. You could even do it cross-openings. Size differences excepted, of course, but imagine a Tanya Tate vagina with a swallow texture--the fantasy of Tanya's pussy sucking the cum out of your cock!

                          You'd probably have to pay more than $20 for that, given the likely amount of time involved with pairing an orifice mold with a canal texture, producing a single sleeve, then cleaning and breaking down the mold to do some other one-off or resume normal production.

                            Even if that were the case, we certainly need to solve the issue of some models not being afforded the same options as others. For me, this has been Fleshlight's biggest hurdle, I find models I like don't have the orifices or options I want, and vice versa.

                              I already own two Lotus (a Misty Stone I ordered and a Asa Akira I received by mistake) and I am not planning in buying any other lotus regardless of the model. It is not a bad sleeve, but I would prefer a revamped SIAC roster than another FLG with the Lotus...
