    Default 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".

    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 can´t 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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Default 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...

    I'm still waiting on a realistic internal texture. I've mentioned it many times, but the Japanese companies are way ahead of ILF on that front. With all of these wacky texture designs they make, you'd think they'd have given it a shot at least once by now.

    I would not buy it. I allready own a Lotus, and a new orifice, or the fantasy part of it being from my favourite star is not enough to put down my money on it, I would rather buy another texture i don´t have.

    If the Lotus would be really sooo bad they wouldn't push it that hard!!
    Nobody of us is so deep into their business to know what's really up.

    I think the Lotus is selling more than all of the other textures together.
    You're right when you say it's bad for many of us that the new ones don't have signature textures but they know what they're doing.
    + there are some other points you gotta keep in mind! The contracts for example.



    If I'd buy my favourite girls FL with the Lotus?
    I would!!!
    At the big boss ............I need Sativa Rose, Daisy Marie, Breanne Benson and Priya Rai

    I don´t think the Lotus is a bad texture, allthough my experience is very limited as I´ve only tried the Lotus and the Swallow, but i still wouldn´t get another sleeve with a texture I allready own. Variety in textures feels more important than variety in orifices.

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

    I voted no - I already have a Lotus, which isn't bad, but it's certainly one that I don't use often at all. Would I buy another one? Not a "plain Jane" FLG texture. It would HAVE to be a different texture. I still occasionally contemplate buying a Misty Stone Lotus since she is the only FLG that offers something different than the rest with her unique feel (thank you ILF!!!!). Haven't pulled the trigger yet, but you never know.

    Now, if ILF put out a Lotus with the same feel as Alien or Ice - yeah, I think that'd make it worth looking further into. (deeper into? lol)


    As it stands there are plenty of good points being made, however, since none of us here know the numbers behind the scenes it's the usual speculation BS, unfortunately. My completely useless suspicion is that the Lotus was released with the VNA Girls because Lotus sells. ILF and probably re-sellers alike will get asked "which one feels most like a real pussy?" and you KNOW what they're gonna say ...

    Anyways, maybe i'll get lucky and ILF will get ADVENTUROUS with the Lotus with a slicker feel, a la Misty/Alien/Ice. Maybe. (c'mon ILF, it's a minimal investment at best and you can always run it in limited numbers to see how it does )

    No - would not. New girl should '=" new texture . if you want to make a sex toy to imitate real sex; theres gotta be different orificice and texture feeling. It's like me doing different girls - one has tight hole and the other one medium - and maybe loose hole . Once you close your eyes - its all about the flight and the feeling of the inside texture. You want to feel a unique experience with every different fleshlight.

    I already bought a riley steele lotus like 2 years - since Im only 6in when fully erect - i cant feel the best part of the lotus BECAUSE I CANT REACH there - unless penetrate it from the other end. And I also bougt a sex in a can pink lady - I saw Bobbi Eden's saggy labia mold and its a TURN ON. Especially a labia that sags and hangs half way down through the fleshlight - NOW thats what i called a realistic looking vagina. But when I only saw the option for the lotus - what a TURN OFF...

    Please at least give her a signature texture 0r add vortex or primal. If Fleshlight Co does add the vortex or primal - i'd definetly by Bobbi Eden's vagina with her saggy and sexy labia !! Now i can lick and suck her labia - have fun - and penetrate. Lotus is a good start, but my motto when buying from fleshlight is every girl with a unique texture and distinctive orifice. Especially now that I have all 3 sex in a can and milf hunter and bibi's sleeve. PLEASE ADD VORTEX TO BOBBI EDEN !!!!

    The most exciting part of a new release is a new texture. The orifice, while a nice visual stimulant, does precious little to actually stimulate and is thus mostly fluff. Texture above all else!

    I have no incentive towards buying any of the new fleshlights with Lotus only, at all.

    I definitely merit texture over the orifice. I already have a Lotus (and I do enjoy it!) but why bother spending another $60+ on basically the same experience? I would probably spend like $30 for a lotus sleeve molded after my fave pornstar, but not much more than that.

    In case you were wondering, my favorite girl is that sexy Indian MILF Priya Rai!

    I guess ILF has chosen to simply go after fans of each particular pornstar who never bought a FL rather than catering to current FL owners, which is kinda sad...

    Plus once people have their favorite star, they won't be getting any more. The reason I have 5 FLs is because each has a different texture.

    @ mydecoyofcourse

    Wow ! Man we almost on the same boat. I did mention for Priya Rai to be our next fleshlight girl in the near future. Yet i am not so sure how they select their girls, but I actually got my request fullfilled. I suggest to one the staff's ask a question type topic from the forum. I did ask for Priya Rai and a latina girl. SO i got a reply saying that is Gabby Quinteros on the VNA front page on fleshlight website. I checked her promotion video, Im like "Who the heck is this girl.. she looks part 50 yrs !!" So i did some research on her bio and checkout a few videos. She is well known on brazzers and mofos site - but i was abit disappointed, none of her videos that i stream turned me on. She is actually 36, got a body of a mid 20 yr - but a face of a 40 yr old. no disrespect - but i was expecting some one like Sativa Rose, Mulani Rivera, Megan Jones - but notttttt this one. I check some more of her videos to see if i change my mind lol.

    But yes, I do agree that the higher-ups listen to our thoughts and feedbacks on their products. The lotus at every start is getting boring - that should at a reduced price instead.

    If they came out with a Lotus that had Cindy Hope's vag as an orifice, I might actually get it. If they had a new Lotus with this girl as an orifice:

    http://www.freeones.com/html/a_links/Anna_Lacey/

    I would definitely buy it. But these are extreme examples and I stand behind the principle of this thread. Not even some half-assed new shared texture, just the boring old Lotus. Congratulations ILF, you've completely lost imagination. Even the several new texures of late seem to be composites of previous accomplishments. I'm currently looking at dropping a couple hundred on another product from another company largely due to the bizarre and unsatisfactory nature of the direction ILF has taken in the past year.

    Of course, I think I should add that ILF on the whole still has the best selection of male masturbators by far. While we are not happy with their direction with the FL Girls, ILF still has enough textures and varieties in total that each new FL is just a drop in the bucket. We can think of that as consolation if we are ever wronged by the lotus

    I Definitely agree - as matter of fact I never heard of Fleshlight before and never thought that male masturbator we out in the market for men. That time, I started to watch xxx in my early junior year of senior high. I actually stumbled on the Fleshlight AD on some free streaming site. At first I thought it was a scam until I bought my first riley steele lotus from the official FL website. To me, right now I am laying on ILF's shoulder for now. So far is the best patented -superskin material i've experienced so far. There both up and downs.

    Ups: Super skin
    Actually molding for the FL girls
    Easy to remove and clean
    Brand name
    BYO 'Build Your Own " option available for the standard ones

    Cons: one basic color beige (no realistic colors of labia that would match especially FL girls in reality )
    always starting with lotus (no variety with previous mini lotus for average sized men)
    random girls (not so much according with older ILF customers want)
    limited colors of case (i wished they return the red case from private FL euro girls before)

    In contrast - I've actually seen cheap relastically worm figure and wrinkle masturbator that are not handsfree. But one thing is, a few of those actually imitate real distinctive parts of the vagina orifice. But on the other hand, ILF hands are more dependable sleeve structure that makes cleaning and care easy.

    In conclusion, so far ILF fleshlight is a good place for men to try out masturbators sleeve becuase they're pretty well known in the sex toy market. But yes, they are not the best yet in terms of the marketing process. But I do see effort; just look at the flight, freaks FL and blade. I can see their working on expanding their market - but the still need some new fresh minds to work with them - especially more creative molders with years of experience to design new textures. I will glad to try other products, but talking about discreet - fleshlight is the only company i can depend on for now. Well see how far ILF are willing to go for understanding the demands of customers in the market.

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

    Getting back to topic: The Lotus - I haven't used it in ages, I probably will throw it away. I think this was my first FLG (Raven Riley) and later also bought her signature texture that I love so much more compared to the Lotus. I always had difficulties when using the texture - it's just built in a way that won't work for shorter (or let's say average) men. The positive was that if I ever finished (which I too often had difficulties) it was great. Compared with the way I'm built I really have nothing to complain at all - so at least I simply need a smaller Lotus - SIAC Lotus is great! just a little bit tight at times.

    When choosing a generic texture of the existing (non-signature) ones, I'd use primal or vortex. Vortex works really well for me for both FLG as well as for the normal variant (alterenative is wonder wave - not much difference for me). Primal is probably less fitting as it can be very tight. A much better alternative though would be a "Lotus 2.0" being a bit less tight and useful for all customers - especially to avoid one-time (first-time) customers being disappointed just because their favourite FLG is not feeling as expected on the longer run.

    What I especially disliked this year are those short-living FLGs. One of my favourites just lasted some weeks instead of months as I was used to up to now. So as I already had bought my badge for spring I begged in vain that it disappears to early (it had a vortex and primal!) - only to be replaced by a more average FLG with lotus
    It was the most horrifying ILF experience since I'm customer.

    Apart from the OT-rant personally I totally agree to the "uniqueness" of the FLG. For me to be insterested in an autumn purchase (1 FLG is on my list) I'd want to
    - Different color case option
    - Different size option (why not offer every FLG in 2-3 sizes? S/M/L)
    - Two different textures (at least one unique) for the my other two.
    - Much expanded orgy option
    Though not interesting for me I completely understand that most here want to have all three variants for every FLG not only the "standard" one.

    Regards

    The FLG line is obviously making them tons of money, otherwise they wouldn't keep expanding it. I say keep doing it, just as long as they keep making new innovations as well; the Blade and the Flight are two good examples of innovations for ILF. I don't consider the FLG's innovative with the exception of some creative textures which could also be seen as gimmicky by some...

    I'm still hoping for a lubing case, a warming case, and inner textures that are molded directly from the specifications of a real vag, mouth, and anus.

    The Lotus appears to be a pretty big hit for ILF, so I'm surprised to see so many people here not too big on the Lotus. I had two Wonder Waves and got bored with it. Then I bought a Lotus and there was an adjustment period, but after I broke it in I've never looked back; I've had so many mind-blowers with it I've lost count. I've got a Swallow SIAC coming because I've always wanted to try a SIAC, but the Lotus has done the job so well for me that it's going to be a tough act to follow.

    What size is your cock? The Lotus for men smaller than 6" feels dramatically different for men who are 6-7" long. I can tell by just looking at it, that if you are long enough to hit the back chambers, it would feel amazing. The problem is not many men are that long and they feel relatively nothing. I'm going to bust out the Lotus for a few days to give it another go, but I'm pretty sure at this point it's just not the sleeve for me.

    Lotus...lotus...lotus

    Yea when I'm fully pumped its up 5.75in almost 6in and I can probably reach the first rib piece out the entire end. I did not have so much a good experience with though - kept on feeling I was not long enough. Good thing I bought the SIAC set when it was on sale. These really make me feel that I covered the entire sleeve which was a good thing for me as an average guy. Gripping on the SIAC it's more durable for me.

    I've said this a couple of times recently, I find the lotus sleeve extremely pleasurable. I didn't think much of it when I first got it, but started using it a lot more recently and really love it. I'm 7" long 6" girth if it matters.

    I most certainly would, it's one of my fav texture. I even have a back-up sleeve in case the something bad happens to the one I use!

    Pretty funny that a thread from 10 months ago showed how much we were against what they just tried to do with the FLG line.

    I forgot about this thread, you're right about this foreshadowing that no longer offering FLG's without the signature textures would be an epic failure. Who knew? I'm sure ILF was well aware of our distaste for the original lotus and the 'horse vagina' oriface long before they made that terrible decision.

    I wasn't even aware of it at all until it was bumped up but just found it amusing. As you said though, who knew.

    Yeah, I darkly remembered that there was some discussion about it but a poll of this kind (and I even had participated in it

    Though I hope that many more will participate in this poll, the number seems to be so low.

    Interesting to read that the introduction of those FLGs without Primal/Vortex option (EU Line of girls) was the most horrifying at that time. I'd never imagined that ILF would be able to top it for me by the signature-texture buy-out after this thread and poll result.

    Finally as the normal Lotus is not part of the FL line (but the FLG line) but the Mini-Lotus us I hope that the sales of the normal Lotus will go down further. I'd prefer either Mini-Lotus, WW/Vortex or a real-vagina-inner-structure imitation to be the standard textures of the FLG line.

    Since I don't already have a Lotus, I'd get one. If I already had one, no. Not even for Priya Rai. It's part of the fleshlight game for me: get as many textures as I can without cases, don't get any doubles, try to collect them all before they go extinct.

    Priya Rai would be a strong argument to get a second one but I'd rather have her Forbidden :P

    Unfortunately, it's very uncomfortable for the girl to do this. I'm curious though, how it would be like.

    This has already been done (I can't go into more detail on who due to forum rules.) They probably used co-ordinate measuring probes or lasers internally maybe even x rays.

    I would, because I like the lotus. It's the texture I have the most of.

    All I know is that I don't care who else did it, if ILF ever did this, I would buy the actual vaginal mold fleshlight girls in a heartbeat.

    I heard they use a depth finder, like the one you would use on a boat or submarine...

    Someone on another thread made the point that because the shape of the vaginal canal changes based on arousal and other things that making a mold wouldn't necessarily be a good representation.

    I think that if they crossed the varying diameter and node (brought forward) of the Lotus with the organic texture of the Tornado it would be awesome.
