    Re: Limited Edition: Fleshtone Destroya and Mini-Lotus Fleshlights

    I just want to clarify and say that I am not saying this isn't a good thing. I think it is a great start and I hope they sell the hell out of this new innovation, I just think that more can and should be done to give the customer a reason to buy, or should I say repeat buy.

      Agreed! Makes sense to me!

        I agree also, ILF knows that this wasn't the best decision to discontinue the FLG signature textures so now they are trying to make up for their huge mistake. I'm not sure if it will be enough but at least it's an effort.

          I never really liked my Mini lotus and the Destroya seems a bit loose. I have a wide gurth.

          NEED to make it in the asa akira dragon model, also offer that in the Ragular sleeves. or the Vortex.

            The sleeve with the big inner nipples like the Destroya seem a bit loose. The vortex give a whipping effect.

              Can't participate in this "experiment" but believe the fleshtone should become standard. The standard labia also needs to be updated. Just hard seeing myself going from beautifully crafted FLG labias back to boring horse labia. But it probably has to do with being a big fan of the models and having several of my FLGs signed.

                I am also not able to afford any (primarily due to shipping costing as much as an FL itself) at the moment, but would very much prefer to see fleshtone standardised. Though I likely won't buy any new ones until we see new case colours, and some additional lady options, or a replacement for the existing.

                    I support this effort... I think this is a tough pair to pick, though popular. I bet they'll sell the 200, but not as fast as you'd think... So many of us own those textures, especially with the mini-lotus going away and coming back "limited time" recently and the more recent implication that you might be facing "last chance" on certain sleeves. I think you pulled the fence-sitters off the fence already.

                    In my case, I have a pretty recent replacement for my original Lupe Mini-Lotus, in the Miela Mini-Lotus, that doesn't at all need replacing - so I'm out on that one.

                    I actually bought a new Stoya Destroya already too when I had my "last chance", but it had a manufacturing issue I was led to believe was very common with the sleeve so frankly I'm not sure what to think about this. If I were given a choice between original pink and fleshtone, I'd pick Fleshtone every time.

                    Sarah - can you tell me if those pictures of the "fangs" in the middle/back part of the texture are accurate with respect to the actual product that ships? My Destroya is one of my older sleeves and I was and am very interested in replacing it... but my recent experience (see my recent post and associated CS ticket #7300) is likely to keep me on the sidelines.

                      I don't have either texture and would like to get them someday, but I just don't have the funds to do it right now. If I hadn't just bought 2 sleeves last week, I would have ordered the lady with the mini-lotus and the butt with the destroya.

                        Let me start by saying that I think this is almost a step in the right direction, and that's a good thing. It shows that our thoughts and opinions regarding the elimination of signature FLG/FLB textures and the aftermath are being communicated to the powers-that-be, and that they are (partly) listening. However, it is very ill-timed. (Also, I'm a FJ customer, but I'm posting this here since there is no announcement in the FJ forums.)

                        A new promo went live today. For a limited time only, we are offering the standard Pink Lady and Butt orifices with the Destroya and Mini-Lotus textures in Fleshtone instead of Pink. We are listening to everything you have been saying on the forums about how you don't like the Pink color, so here is your chance to show us that getting rid of it would be worthwhile!

For me it couldn't have come at a worse time because i just recently spent $200 on the FLGs so i won't have the money to participate in this promotion and i do already have the destroya and minilotus. I really hope this becomes a permanent choice and i think ILF won't regret this decision.

                        Next up NEW ORIFACES!!!!!!!!!!!

                        That said there may be a few factors that affect the success of this particular trial:
                        1) Destroya and Mini-lotus are popular textures as advertised, many (myself included) already own these textures and I don't think too many folks are going to double up on a texture.
                        2) It's got strong competition from the 342 deal in terms of price, for $110.42 you get two fleshtone signature textures plus cases versus $99.90 for three pink signature textures out of six without cases.
                        3) Once again having to purchase a case may be a turn-off for some return customers (myself included).
                        4) As has been mentioned quite a bit, some people don't really like the standard lady orifice (even though there are other options).
                        5) Timing, this offer coming not too long after the mass-discontinuation of signature textures during which people spent a good bit of money, some people's wallets are still recuperating.

                        I hate to speak poorly of this as I really do like seeing new stuff tried out. This kind of reminds me of the limited edition vibro glow, a nice idea that fell short a bit on execution. I honestly wouldn't mind seeing fleshtone replace pink.

                        Most of us lost a lot of money recently because of the FLG thing and the answer to the "pink or not?" question depends on the sales of this limited time offer!

                        This is BULLSHIT. Y would the company do it to itself. U say that u listen to the things we say then offer up this crap. Let's address every issue individually and miss the big picture???

                        I'm starting to come to the conclusion that whoever is in a position with any kind of power is clearly some brain dead idiot.

                        Common in the work place, lower underling who are far more in tune with what people what and how to do the job right are constantly blocked by some clueless share holder who out ranks them and prevents and good from being accomplished.

                        We, the repeat customer base, already shelled out a lot of money during the FLG/FLB Sayonara sale. Furthermore, the institution of the new BYO was immediately followed by the 3-for-2 sale. On the heels of that, ILF is now asking us to shell out even more money for textures a lot of us already own, but now offered with inferior orifices, including the much-maligned horse-pussy.

                        All for what? To prove the we really want the Fleshtone and that it will sell well. Which seems a bit ridiculous seeing as how we've repeatedly bought this skin tone and most of us praise it as the best of all.

                        However, the timing of this experiment and the the inclusion of the horse pussy orifice display more of the mistakes being made by ILF's marketing team.

                        It would have been wiser wait and design a new Lady orifice (maybe even offer two or three distinct versions of it), one new, thoughtfully designed texture to add to the best-selling Destroya and Mini-Lotus choices, and introduce that with this experiment. And to throw in my two cents, the butt orifice is in sore need of an update as well.

                        I really do like that the Fleshtone is being considered as the new standard for FL/FJ. I hope ILF also takes into consideration that a lot of the repeat customer base already owns these textures and has no desire to purchase them again just to prove we want to keep the Fleshtone around.

                        I think ILF's marketing team needs to listen to what the community wants overall, and not just zero in and address one issue. I am glad they are listening, though.

                        Some feathers have been ruffled around here because a lot of us like the Fleshtone, and we want it to stay. We don't want to buy textures we already own with inferior orifices to prove it, though. That should factor into your experiment, too.

                            Yeah, these aren't gonna do too well if the stoya / miela options are available.

                              ILF is asking us to show them which we prefer by purchasing textures many of us already have. That simply makes no sense. If it hasn't already been made perfectly clear to them that we prefer Fleshtone over Pink, they should introduce one or two new textures and make them available in both.

                              The question I have is: Why does ILF need to be convinced that making Fleshtone standard is worthwhile? They already know it's superior or the Signature Textures would have all been Pink.

                                Actually, the first Fleshlight Girls textures were Pink. In fact, Twista was the first Signature texture released in Dec. 2008 and it wasn't until Nov. 2009 that Fleshtone was introduced:

                                http://blog.fleshlight.com/2009/11/02/introducing-new-realistic-flesh-tone-exclusive-to-fleshlightgirls/

                                Back then, Twista was the only Signature texture and it wasn't until May 2010 that all of the other girls would receive their own as well.

                                I've always felt that the Fleshtone was on the FLG lineup because they were envisioning them as more personal and realistic, rather than just a sex toy. Having the other textures with the relatively fake vagina orifice and pink colors helps to separate the two lines. One is the more generic and "sex toy" lineup and the other is a premium and more realistic lineup.

                                I don't really see it as "Pink vs Fleshtone." I think it's two different product lines being marketed in different ways.
