Fleshlight vs Tenga: which pocket pussy is right for you? | Sexdollformen

There was once a time when the very idea of a these devices would have befuddled and startled society. Nowadays, in what might be deemed a more enlightened society, pocket pussies are not only a part of the cultural consciousness, but the product has rivals. When it comes to finding a personal masturbation aide, customers now have a choice and are able to find which suits them best.

Of the two devices, finding the ideal companion will often be a case of personal preference, with many customers not being able to take the devices for a test spin before purchase. Choosing which device suits you might well be a case of finding which of the two most popular products offers exactly what you have been searching for.

Choosing between the fleshlight and Tenga might well come down to how best the product satisfies certain conditions, and each customer is unique in which aspects of the device they favor. Whilst seemingly offering a similar product, the two companies differ in how they approach the same idea.

The Fleshlight, the original pocket pussy and for many people the only name in the industry, is designed to be discreet, the original idea being that it would appear as a flashlight on the outside. Both pocket pussies are designed to be inconspicuous but in different ways.

The Tenga, alternatively, is a piece of original design work, existing as a colorful, oddly shaped piece of material. It seems to hide in plain sight; without being obvious what it is, few will jump to the conclusion of what it is actually designed for.

Fleshlight vs Tenga. Feeling and texture

When it comes down to the technicalities of the two products, the Tenga differs from its competitor in offering a smaller device that is designed with less focus on explicit anatomical correctness. Whereas the original device offers a range of interchangeable interactive sleeves, the Tenga is a smaller more subtle offering.

Whilst not as soft as the fleshlight, the Tenga offers a harder texture. Which one suits will be a matter of personal preference, with some customers favoring the attempt at reality offered by one and the discrete focus on design offered by the other. When it comes to cleaning, the Tenga is quicker to dry and easier to maintain, whereas the fleshlight has a tendency to dry slowly, meaning storage and maintenance can be an issue.

With the two products approaching the idea in differing ways, finding the right device is usually a matter of choice. With the ever expanding market (and both companies now offer a growing portfolio of options), there is clearly a demand from customers for a great variety of products, with a great many options.

Design and Materials

Highlights: All three feel premium compared with many other toys for guys on the market, but the Fleshlight Flight stands out as the most well-engineered. The Tenga case feels a bit delicate in comparison. The Fleshlight sleeves are sensual and inviting, but the Tenga sleeve is clammy and smells funny.

The original Fleshlight has been around since the early 2000s, and over time, the company has refined it to the point of perfection. Fit and finish is hardly “toy-like”. It feels better engineered and more solid than many mainstream household products. Since it has been around since 2000 though, it’s definitely more recognizable and less discreet than the other two. It’s also bigger and heavier than the others. The mass makes it feel nice, but the size makes it harder to hide. And, just to be clear, nobody is going to mistake a Feshlight for being a flashlight. But, it’s still a premium product and it feels worthy of the price.

The most sensual sleeve material: Original Fleshlight

Likewise, the internal removable sleeve of the original Fleshlight feels completely luxurious to the touch—soft, silky, stretchy, and generous. (See the main Fleshlight review for more details on how the sleeves feel.) Even well-endowed guys shouldn’t run out of room in this thing, and that adds to the “more-than-you-would-ever-need” sense of luxury and abundance that comes with the original Fleshlight.

Tenga says no guarantee the Flip will last more than 50 uses. We believe it. No such disclaimer comes with the Fleshlights.

The plastic casing on the Tenga Flip, on the other hand, is a little less thick and more Flexible than the solid Fleshlight case. Whereas the Fleshlight case feels like it would be hard to break, the Tenga Flip’s plastic housing feels like it would crack if it fell on a tile floor or if you sat on it. And then there’s the little clip that holds the two halves together and doubles as the drying stand—it’s quite bendy and definitely won’t take much abuse. The product description for the Tenga Flip says it’s designed for only 50 uses, and we believe it. The Fleshlights have no such disclaimer. Take care of them, and they should last a long time.

Inside the Tenga feels clammy to the touch and leaves your finger smelling funny

The internal (non-removable) sleeve material of the Tenga Flip feels clammy and sticky to the touch compared to both the Fleshlights. When felt with fingers, the Fleshlight sleeves feel sensual and inviting, but the Tenga material feels more industrial. And the Tenga gel material smells industrial too—it has a fairly strong chemical smell that clings to your hands after handling it. It’s not a biting, dangerous type of smell, but it constantly reminds you that you’re messing with a large wad of plastic gel, and that can be kind of distracting when you’re trying to lose yourself in fantasy. The Fleshlights don’t have much of a noticeable smell at all

The compact Fleshlight Flight (Pilot) is just great design—by any standards, not just sex toy standards.

The Fleshlight Flight is more discreet, compact, and affordable than both the full-size Fleshlight and the Tenga Flip, yet it somehow feels even more solid and well-engineered than the original Fleshlight. Something about the thickness of the plastic case, the way the caps go on so solidly, and the little design details just feel really nice. The case is less recognizable than the original Fleshlight, which is appreciated, and the design is modern. If keeping your sex toy on the down-low is a priority, such as if you have roommates or nosy family around, this is the Fleshlight for you.

Likewise, the compact Fleshlight Flight is a really good choice for incorporating into partner play. The light weight and size make it easy for a partner to wield it, and the nondescript entry design might be a little more socially comfortable than the big pink artificial vagina design of the original Fleshlight.

The Tenga entry looks like a catfish’s mouth. Fleshlight Flight looks inviting. The original Fleshlight…is definitely not subtle.

The luxuriousness of the Flight’s sleeve is just a point or two less than that of the original Fleshlight, but it still feels miles ahead of the Tenga’s sleeve. Like the Tenga Flip, the Pilot features a non-descript entry rather than the anatomically correct original Fleshlight—another point for being discreet, but the entry on the Pilot is much more inviting than the Tenga. The plump padding says, “I feel good”, whereas the Tenga Flip entry looks a little like a catfish’s mouth—not so sensual.

Cleanup and Care

Highlights: When it comes to cleanup, the Tenga Flip’s drying stand and ability to open up make it shine. The full-size Fleshlight, on the other hand, takes forever to dry. The Flight—was a little quicker.

As we discovered while conducting the Fleshlight deep-dive review, the only real drawback to the Fleshlight is not so much the cleaning as it is the drying. Although it’s really only an issue if discreetness is a factor—such as if you have roommates, etc., the fact that the sleeve insert has to sit out for anywhere from an hour to a full day, depending on the humidity and temperature, means that you’re going to have to be careful about when and where you choose to use it. Unless, of course, you’re prepared to have an awkward conversation if someone happens upon it.

Score another point for the Fleshlight Flight when it comes to being discreet. At roughly half the size of the full-size Fleshlight, it dries out more quickly than the big Fleshlight. You’ll only have to leave it sitting out to dry for about half the time as the full-size Fleshlight.

But, the winner in this category is easily the Tenga Flip. The Flip gets its name from the fact that you can “flip” it open completely for cleaning and leave it sitting open on a stand for fast drying. It’s as if Tenga was gunning for the Fleshlight’s weak spot and, exclusively in regards to cleanup, it hits the target. In testing all three of these, it was a relief to be able to get the Tenga put away completely dry well before friends came over. If that’s your ultimate priority, this is the way to go.

Getting Down To Business: Fleshlight STU Vs Tenga Flip Hole

Now, it is a public domain that The Fleshlight company (Interactive Life Forms, LLC) has a pretty long industry presence. They have developed and created interesting sex toys since 1995 and have not, at any one point, dipped their curve of innovation.

As for Tenga on the other hand. They are also a popular brand that has gone out of its way since its inception back in 2005. The company has won a religious following mostly in Germany and Japan and has a fair popular usage from people in other regions as well.

In case you might be wondering, the Fleshlight brand has maintained a strict adherence to the production of quality at any cost. The company has made sure that every toy produced by it has a distinguishing user experience not easily matched with other competitors.

Taking this up… Fleshlight has attained a special recognition amongst millions across the globe for its super-sleek and extra-sensual SuperSkin sleeve. They got a patent for this creation in 1998 that gives the best vaginal stimulation while ensuring longevity in the long run.

Fleshlight also gives amazing discounts on their products if you get them from their official online store or other trusted distributors. While we can’t say they’re cheap, we also can’t say they’re outrightly expensive given the quality and product durability coming with it.

Moving on to Tenga…

These guys have also done a genius work in revolutionizing the category of male masturbators. It goes without saying that the sleeve textures they have designed over the years are truly BADASS!

I mean… Yeah, they are primarily made from elastic TPE material, but the kind of kink it brings to your mind is all too inviting 🙂 On these two’s body design, usability, and other specs, we’ll take an adventurous rush and dig through them at the Features Face To Face section below.
