So, there I was like a deer caught in the headlights in a sex store, trying to figure out which Fleshlight to buy: original, super tight, or some weird lady labyrinth. I probably should have researched a bit before I bought it, but the pressure was on. I finally just grabbed one, took it home, and gave it a test drive. It worked great, but it just wasn’t as tight as I would have hoped.
Since then, I’ve discovered six techniques to make my Fleshlight tighter. If you have a Fleshlight, you’ll want to give some of these a try, but be sure to be careful as they can damage the material. If you do them right, they will add to the overall experience and work on any version of fleshlight.
If you don’t want to fall in the same situation, choose carefully from our comparison table of top fleshlight sleeves.
6 Ways to Make a Fleshlight Tighter
How tight you need to get your Fleshlight depends on your girth, which Fleshlight you have, and personal tightness preferences. There are several different things you can try. My suggestion is to try more than one of them until you find one that works for you. They’re all external changes, so you’re less likely to damage the Fleshlight material.
1. Use Rubber Bands
One sensation I was missing from the Fleshlight experience was pressure in the spots that usually tighten up during a person-to-person sexual experience. One option to make the Fleshlight feel tighter with resistance and grip in all the right places is to use rubber bands.
I start by wrapping the outside of the Fleshlight insert with plastic wrap. Plastic wrap prevents the rubber bands from cutting into and damaging the fleshy material. I fold the plastic wrap lengthwise until it’s 2-3 inches wide. Then I wrap it snuggly around the sleeve in the area where I would feel pelvic muscles holding me if my Fleshlight were a live lady.
After I make the flesh safe with plastic wrap, I add a few rubber bands around the plastic wrap. Thick ones are ideal because you don’t want one snapping in all the excitement later. You can also use elastic hair bands. After the rubber bands are on, I put the flesh sleeve back into the flashlight case.
The rubber bands provide firmness and even pressure. It also makes the flesh of the Fleshlight feel more realistic. The feelings and textures beyond the point where the rubber bands squeeze the sleeve feel amplified.
2. Try Small Sponges
One way I found to make my Fleshlight tighter is to use sponges inside the case. I like this option because different sponge placements provide different experiences.
I cut sponge strips that are as long as the sponge and one inch wide. I wet the sponge, fold it in half, and wrap a rubber band around the folded sponge to hold the folds in place. A thicker bath sponge is also an option.
I then use something long like a chopstick to push the sponges between the sleeve and the case. You’ll want to tuck the sponge into the case between the fins. I like to have a sponge close to the orifice opening, one toward the middle, and others in various places to ensure that the sensations are random.
Not only do the sponges add tightness, but it also simulates the gripping and contracting feelings from a live experience.
There’s no need to go crazy with the sponges because you can make it feel too tight. I suggest starting with no more than two on each side, adding more if you need them. Experiment with the location and numbers of sponges until they feel right to you.
3. Experiment with Cardboard Rolls
I’ve also experimented with the idea of making the outside structure tighter. I thought that maybe if the flashlight portion of the Fleshlight was narrower, it might make for tighter flesh. I was right.
I use the cardboard from paper towel rolls or toilet paper rolls to make the Fleshlight tighter. I just cut open some toilet paper roll cardboard and slipped it on either side of the flesh. Then I put a rubber band outside of the cardboard to hold the cardboard in place before slipping the whole thing back into the flashlight.
4. Keep The Cap on the End
Leaving the cap on the end of the Fleshlight makes the fleshlight tighter. I forgot to take the cap off the end of the Fleshlight once and found that it had far more suction. Of course, this means that your spooge has nowhere to go, but it doesn’t in a live situation either. So, keeping the end on makes the Fleshlight tighter and gives you a more natural ending. Just make sure the cap is on tightly.
5. Use a Fleshlight Go Case
After I got my first Fleshlight, I thought I’d try the smaller Fleshlight Go as well. I found that I could put the larger-sized sleeve from my original Fleshlight into the smaller Fleshlight Go case. Putting the sleeve into the smaller Fleshlight provides more suction and offers a tighter experience than the regular-sized Fleshlight.
You can either cut your sleeve to fit the Go Case or let it hang out at the end, but the sleeve won’t be as tight at the end if it’s hanging out.
6. Squeeze With Your Hand
If you’ve tried all of these options, and you still feel like you’re missing something, I’ll tell you what it is. No matter how tight you make the sleeve, it doesn’t mimic the muscle squeezes you feel in an in-the-flesh scenario. When it’s just you snuggled up alone with your Fleshlight, there’s only one way to mimic that: take the flesh out of the Fleshlight and give yourself the squeezes you need.
CHECK: If you’re tight on budget, you can try to make your own homemade Fleshlight.
Options for making your Fleshlight tighter include rubber bands, small sponges, cardboard rolls, leaving the end cap on, trying a different case, and squeezing with your hand.
If none of these work for you, you should research to find a tighter Fleshlight sleeve that perfectly fits your needs. However, I think you’ll find luck with at least one of these techniques.
