I bought 3 Fleshlights a few weeks ago from an adult store. Twista, Lotus and Alien. I tried out Lotus and the twista and decided I would just keep using the Lotus and left the alien untouched as it was more of a rare collectable type.
Today I decided I would finally give the alien its first Flight but within the first strokes I knew right away something was not right. Everytime I entred it I felt an uncomfortable rough area painfully scratching at my glans. Not realizing what the problem was I just kept putting more lube inside but when the problem didn't resolve I decided to take a look inside. To my shock I saw a deep lacerations in the worst spot imaginable. It is right at the most narrow spot where the lotus texture turns into a small narrow circle so you get the full impact of the rough lacerations whilst passing through the tight area. I had to stop the Flight right away as there is no way I can continue using it in its current state.
Its definetly a factory error. I was so careful with my Fleshlight that even when removing the packaging plastis rod I went to great lengths by wrapping cling wrap around the edges of the plastic rod and then used lube on it before pulling out the rod slowly and carefully to avoid damaging my FL.
The lacerations appear like the area was shredded with something very sharp and left with deep cuts and there are bits of latex like metrial just peeling and hanging off the area. I obtained an original picture and drew over the section to try and resemble what the damage looks like, Its a difficult area to photograph but I will give it a try and post them later. So what do I do now? I am really worried if they dont replace it I will lose $140
