  • Re: Fleshlight Girls Changes Coming!!

    I hope so. There's a few textures I would definitely go for if they were available with other orifices. Some of the girl orifices don't appeal nearly as much as others, while having quite nice looking textures. So IF this is the direction they're going, I welcome it. But I shall just wait and see what is going on.

      Hopefully you're correct.

      I know that I've read lots of complaints about the Lotus texture. I like it, but honestly I did find that it does get kind of boring after a while. The only two signature sleeves I bought were the love humps and lotus garden, and I like both of them.

      Now I honestly imagine that a "build your own" option would be cost prohibitive for all the combinations they offer in terms of setting up the molds and stuff. You don't know how many you need, how many you can sell, etc.

      However I'd like to offer another suggestion, if possible: Start mixing up the textures and periodically change what special textures are offered. Basically, start offering the old "signature" textures with other FLGs for a few months at a time. It would be a way to keep some variety in the lineup, but if the special textures were limited to two, three, or even four FLGs at a time, it might help with the problem that I'm sure fleshlight is experiencing at this time: they probably have too many possible combinations to easily handle it.

      Right now there isn't anything that interests me, but if the mini-forbidden were to be brought back, or if some of the signature textures were offered for different FLGs, or even, as odd as this might sound, if some of the original textures were offered with an FLG, I might just be convinced to buy.

        I cant really imagine that there isnt a way to come up with a flexible way to combine molds with textures. like having the master (negative) stencils seperate to be able to combine whatever is needed.

        This way I imagine it would even be possible to have various inner texture pieces stacked into one another so make custom textures..

        Then again, I'm not an engineer. Maybe I should become one

        Made a crappy drawing.. cant imagine something like that isnt doable at all... and I'm not even talking about the custom thing, since there are more than enough textures that I would buy before considering a custom one.

          Hmm, guess this means I need to finally decide between Love Humps or Vortex before they're gone...

            Ironically, your first drawing is pretty much exactly how FL molds work. The orifice molds and texture rods are separate pieces. That's why people sometimes notice dark rings/deformations just inside the orifice, as that's where the molds meet. I don't like it either, but ILF has their reasons for not selling your choice of orifice/texture though.

              get the vortex!!!

              just remember it takes a while to break it in. my personal experience was about 12 flights, then bam neglected wonder wave.

                I was leaning towards Love Humps because I'm looking for a lower intensity sleeve for long FLights. My Wonder Wave is great for quickies but very hard to use for longer than 30 minutes. If there's a better insert for very long edging sessions and staying wet, I'd get that or maybe both.

                  I have the Love Humps and like it a lot for low intensity. It also holds lube well because of the depth between the humps.

                  I want to get a Vortex too.

                    True but that would also mean that...

                    A) ILF needs to manufacture every girl/texture variants... far more variants than the old FLG signature texture approach.

                    ...or...

                    B) Manufacture sleeves for each customer order = higher price and longer order fulfilment time.


                    Either case, ILF needs to have moulds for every girl/texture variant they decide to offer, which sounds expensive.

                      Well, yes and no.

                      I'll address B first. While it would be nice if they would offer every possible combination, and I would certainly purchase a few custom sleeves, I know that the costs associated would be far too great to be practical at current prices, and if prices were raised to make it worth wile, I imagine the product would be too expensive to sell.

                      The only way this might work is, assuming that at least one part of the mold was very easy to change in just a few seconds, for example the orifice, would be to wait until they had a large enough order for a certain texture and then crank out the variations in mass. Failing that, lets say that Fleshlight calculated that they needed to make and sell 3,540 sleeves to make it worthwhile. Then the answer would be to simply wait until 3,540 people ordered a custom combination and then do a run.

                      As for A, yes, far more possible variants than before, but not necessarily far more actual variants. For example, if they decided to offer only three FLGs with one each special texture for a three or four month period, it would be a much smaller number of actual combinations.

                        Building to order has its costs, but there would also be savings in storage, less wasted superskin material, and more happy customers. ILF may not be receiving as many orders per day as you would think.

                            Isn't that what the Lotus is advertised as?

                              Even though I have only had my Alien Fleshlight for about a month, I went ahead and ordered a Misty Stone Bump and Grind. That was one of the ones I was thinking about getting for my next sleeve and decided that I better get one. I ordered it on amazon since I have an account there already and it states that it ships directly from ILF so I know that it will be a genuine FL. I also ordered a 32oz. bottle of Gun Oil H2O lube because of the reviews I have seen about it on this site. It should be here in about a week so I am already eagerly awaiting the new addition to my FL collection.

                                Yes, and it's wrong.
