Masturbation is a completely healthy habit that actually has numerous health benefits associated with it. I’m serious; there are studies that have been conducted on it and most reproductive health experts agree that frequent jerking off can improve a person’s overall wellbeing. So why is that I get funny looks when I talk about wanting to do it constantly? It’s probably because the sex toys I’ve been using are a tad on the noticeable side. They’re either large, loud or designed in such a way that makes it obvious what they’re for. At this point, I have quite the reputation around the office yet nobody has ever caught me flogging the dolphin. My “street cred” is due to my openness about using pleasure products to reach a satisfying orgasm whenever and however I see fit. I think I scare some people, but it’s whatever.
Meanwhile, I’m always on the lookout for bigger and better things. Usually, I have a few of my favorite brands that I watch intently for updated products. One such brand is Fleshlight and they’re always coming out with new stuff. Because of the troubles with my libido at work, I needed something that was compact, travel-friendly, discreet and durable but I wasn’t willing to give up any pleasure to find it. A coworker with an equally perverted mind whispered something about the Quickshot Vantage one day during my lunch break and things got pretty interesting for me after that. So, did the QSV make my work day go by smoother or did the tiny device cause me big problems on the job? Well, let me make sure you know what I’m talking about first.
What Is the Fleshlight Quickshot Vantage?
Sometimes efficiency is the best policy. The relatively famous Fleshlight brand seems to have that idea cornered, and it’s especially obvious when you look at some of their sex toys for men. Take, for example, their Quickshot Vantage. It’s less than half the size of the original Fleshlight masturbator and is ten times more unique due to its fully exposed orifices on each end and its voyeur-friendly design throughout. This means it can be used as supplementary stimulation during blowjobs/fellatio/oral sex or as a solo masturbation aid when nobody is around. Enter via either end and jerk until climax, or flip it around to get a brand new sensation with every session. Designed for individuals and couples of all sexual persuasions, the QSV is made to be travel-smart and orgasm-ready whenever you need it to be.
The Main Features
This unique male masturbator from the Fleshlight brand features a completely see-through sleeve and casing for improved visuals during pleasure sessions. It also has a completely open-ended design, making it one of the easiest sex toys in the industry to clean. The ultra-compact Quickshot Vantage measures just 4.5 inches in total length, with just over 3.5 inches of insertable length to explore. The tightness is suitable for average penis girths and the hallow construction means you can go balls-deep without bottoming out. It’s lighter in weight than the standard FL masturbator and it features a unique sleeve texture that can be used forwards or backwards for optimal versatility. The QSV is not compatible with other toys in the brand’s collection, but its SuperSkin material is the same stuff used on everything else they make so you know it’s good.
What Comes in the Box?
I find that that folks down at the Fleshlight factory are all about sticking freebies in the box with their products. It’s kind of a nice gesture too, especially considering how easy it is to buy a sex toy only to find out you can’t use it right away because some important accessories are missing. And while most of their devices are equipped with everything you need to start jazzing immediately, there are a few items in their collection that require extra products to enjoy them fully. As for their see-through Quickshot Vantage, here’s what you’ll get for the money:
- The open-ended, transparent SuperSkin masturbation sleeve
- A clear installation and handling case
- Two (2) sleeve caps for convenient storage
- A sample packet of water-based lube
- A set of instructions
The product already comes with a warranty from the manufacturer, but you’ll get a proof of purchase (POP) number to go online and register your toy either way. What you won’t receive, however, is a carrying case of any sort or a sample packet of the brand’s patented Renewal Powder that you’re probably going to need eventually. So while the toy’s got everything required to derive pleasure, it’s not the complete package without all the necessary maintenance products unless you plan on using it only once or twice.
While it’s true that I have a unique experience with each and every sex toy I use, many of them look, feel and operate in much the same way. With that said, even similar products don’t always produce the same outcome. I find it important to take mental notes while I use these kinds of things, even though that’s sometimes difficult because my eyes are rolling into the back of my head. Either way, I use the same basic criteria to judge every pleasure product that comes anywhere near my body. Here is how it all played out with the Fleshlight Quickshot Vantage:
- The Dimensions
This bad boy is nice and compact, enough so that I could easily carry it with me to and from the jobsite without causing the usual stir at the security gate. The circular shaped casing made it easy to hold onto and it was the perfect size for my penis (which is about 6.5 inches in length and about 1.25 inches around). I know for a fact it won’t fit Jim from Accounting’s dick but I won’t admit how I know that. I suggest using plenty of lube though, because most of it gets pushed out during the pumping process and a dry jerk can be very painful no matter who you are.
- The Features
While it’s no high-tech or automatic masturbation device with tons of features, the ones that this toy does have are rather impressive. I truly enjoyed the open-ended design and the dual sensations made possible with the unique sleeve texture as it was yanked back and forth across my crank. However, I can see how some men might have trouble fitting themselves inside this thing. So although it’s got decent dimensions that are appropriate the average man’s penis, the best feature is probably the see-through sleeve and casing or the compact size of its overall design.
- The Sensations
Unless you warm the sleeve up beforehand, you’re going to experience a slight shock to the system when you touch the material to your dick because it’s naturally cold. The manufacturing brand provides a sleeve warming accessory but it’s sold separately just like everything else. Overall, the sensations were on par with what I was expecting from a transparent fake vagina, although I thought it felt a little more like a skilled and slimy hand job than oral sex. I can definitely see how something like this would come in handy during a blowjob though. The open-ended design helped me push through my typical depths to reach new heights, meaning I could shove it all the way down to the base without doing damage to the tip of my dick.
- The Functionality
I can definitely see how some men would find this masturbator extremely arousing. Hell, I can even understand why women would like it too. Because of the transparent design, soft yet commanding texture, ergonomic dimensions and versatility, it’s certainly one of the better handheld sex toys available. And since it’s lightweight and compatible with all water-based lubes, the QSV makes it so much easier for someone to use the device as intended (which, for me, was taking it to work for a quick masturbation session during my daily lunch break). And with it being made completely out of plastic and silicone, I never have to worry about being questioned at the front gate by security.
The Ups and Downs
I have never found the perfect sex toy, but I’ve heard countless manufacturers claim that their products are flawless. When it comes to something that’s designed to generate sexual pleasure, it’s virtually impossible to please everybody. I mean, what feels good or is acceptable to me may not me the same to you or someone else. The only way to find a device that’s ideal is to be realistic. Carefully consider the ups and downs of owning any male masturbator you’re looking at. As for the Fleshlight Quickshot Vantage, these are the things I think you should know before spending any money on it:
- Precision texture to maximize pleasure
- Can be used as a couple’s toy
- Great toy for voyeurs
- Ideal for fans of oral sex simulation
- Travel-friendly size and shape
- Made from skin-safe materials
- Fully submersible in water
- Requires manual power
- May not accomodate all penis sizes
- Not compatible with other sex toys
