Jes-Extender [Review] My Results after using for 8-months

When it comes to penis enlargement, the first thing I can think of is penis extender(nothing personal,it is all about scientific studies!). And when it comes to penis extenders, Jes-Extender is one of the top 3 choices in my list. Why? The answer is simple: I tried the stuff and it almost met my expectations. So, now I am going to tell you everything you want to know about this penis enlargement tool, its pros and cons, and my results of using it for 8 months.  

 

What is Jes-Extender?

Jes-Extender is one of the very first extender devices that were made to increase the length and girth of the penis. The first extender of this brand was created in 1995. Since then, for more than 20 years, Jes-Extenders are still one of the best-known and best-selling devices for increasing male genitalia.JES Extender

Initially, the Jes-Extender constructors were planning to make a medical device that will solve the penile curvature. Therefore, the main purpose of this instrument was to find a solution for chordee and Peyronie’s disease. The second goal was to restore intimate health after genital surgery. And while both of these tasks were solving with Jes-Extender, it turned out that there was a bonus. Patients who used the extender for its intended purpose noticed that their genitals gradually became longer and thicker. As a result, the target audience of Jes-Extender has changed: now the device is mainly used by those men who want to enlarge the penis.

 

Jes-Extender variations 

The following types of extenders are presented on the manufacturer’s official website:

  • Jes-Extender Light ($ 199). This is the simplest, but a very good option that is popular due to its low price. The kit includes all the basic parts and a manual. Unlike other extenders of this line, this option is delivered in a cardboard case, and not in a wooden one. It is suitable for penis length not exceeding 6.7 inches. Using this stuff, you may account for a 1-year warranty. 

    Original
  • Jes-Extender Original ($ 229.99). All the parts are delivered in an elegant wooden case. In addition to the main details, the kit includes extra elongation bars and a set of keys. Unlike the previous version, this extender has a 2-year warranty and is suitable for penis lengths up to 9.1 inches.
  • Jes-Extender Titanium ($ 249.99). The extender comes to you in a lightweight aluminum case. Also in the kit, there is an extra set of elongation bars. 
  • Jes-Extender Silver ($ 299.99). All metal parts are coated in silver.

    Gold

    Jes-Extender Gold ($ 349.99). If you ever wanted a gold toy for your penis, here it is. All metal parts of the extender are coated with 24-karat gold.

  • Jes-Extender Platinum ($ 1,000.00). This is the most expensive and luxurious of the extenders in this line. All metal parts are platinum plated.

All the extenders in this line, except Jes-Extender Light, are suitable for penis length up to 9.1 inches. 

 

How does it work and why is it popular?

Most mechanical extenders’ principle of operation is the same. A special platform is put on the pubic area, the penis is placed between two metal rods, and the glans is fixed with a loop or strap. Depending on the user’s experience, the necessary load is set. Next, the user must wear the extender for 3-6 hours (experienced ones can use the device for a longer time). 

A gradual increase in load helps to the slow stretching (traction) of the penis. This

 leads to a more active division of penile tissue cells. As a result, an increase in the size of the male limb is observed. It is slow but steady, day after day. 

This phenomenon has been known by some African and Asian nationalities for hundreds of years. Perhaps you saw photographs of people with unnaturally long necks covered with metal rings? Or maybe you noticed those women in African tribes who extend their lips with rings? So, these are examples of using the principle of traction. However, it is used not only in this field but also in official medicine. It is known as the Ilizarov principle and is used primarily for stretching limbs after bone fractures.

The Jes-Extender principle of operation is the same as other extenders. So what explains its popularity compared to similar models? Let’s find out!

 

European quality 

One of the main advantages of Jes-Extender is its European quality. The device is made in Denmark, in the same place where it was invented. Unlike some other brands, Jes-Extender did not transfer their production to Asian countries. 

Of course, there are fake extenders that copy Jes-Extender, but none of them is as high-grade as the original. Therefore, if you want to buy a real Jes-Extender, do it only on the official website.

 

Clinical testing

Extenders are medical devices. Therefore, they must undergo clinical trials. In April 2011, an article written by Italian scientists from the University of Turin was published in a popular medical magazine BJUI. It examined extenders’ principle of operation. The article concluded that these devices are the only effective ones for penis enlargement without surgery.

 

Test of time

The first Jes-Extender appeared in 1995. More than two decades have passed since then, but the devices are still popular among both users and urologists.

 

Any side effects?

Of course, side effects can occur. But for this, you have to wear the extender for too long without previous training. Also, the problem may happen if you use too much load. But if you will apply the stuff according to the manufacturer’s recommendation, you will never face any problem. 

 

Background

To start with, the size of my penis has always been the thing that bothered me a lot. And although from a medical point of view, its length is slightly less than average, I always wanted it to be longer. Before I began my daily sets with Jes-Extender, my phallus was 3.93 inches in length and 3.14 inches in girth. My girlfriend knew about these troubles around the size of my penis. And even so she assured me that she was comfortable with its size, I still felt insecure while having sex with her. 

 

My previous experience

I decided to try something that would solve my problem.

  • First of all, I tried pills. The only thing I was able to achieve with them was a temporary increase in erection. But there was no question of any penis enlargement.
  • I also used gels and creams. But still, they improved an erection for a while but did not affect the growth of the phallus. Besides, I did not like the redness and burning, which was observed immediately after I applied those products.
  • I tried jelqing as well. The only things I have achieved were swelling and skin irritation. Maybe I did the exercises wrong or maybe this technique was not the best for me – I do not know.
  • When I realized that pills, gels, and jelqing were not effective for me, I decided to try something else. At that time, extenders seemed to me like a very complex medical apparatus. So, I chose something simpler – a vacuum pump. I liked this thing a lot. I even decided that I had found my ideal option. However, I soon realized that using a pump indeed gave a good result, but it can hardly be called permanent. Yes, my penis did increase in its size and my sexual stamina did rise, but immediately after sex, I returned to where I started.

 

Why I used Jes-Extender

So, after all my fruitless attempts, I decided to buy an extender. But the problem was I knew nothing about their types, brands, pros, cons, and so on. For that reason, my first try was unsuccessful. I am not going to tell you exactly what the brand I used, but I am almost sure that it was just a low-quality fake. It broke just a couple of weeks after I bought it.

Perhaps after this, my experience with using extenders would come to its end. But I accidentally met a post on the Internet about Jes-Extender. It interested me a lot because the description looked convincing, and the “before” and “after” photos were impressive. So, I began to collect the information about this stuff and ordered it soon.

 

Ordering and shipping

I did not want to take risks of buying the fake one again, so I ordered the Jes-Extender on the official website. There were several different models, and I was not sure about the right choice. I described my problem to an online consultant and he advised me Jes-Extender Original. So I ordered it. 

The package arrived two days later. It was an ordinary cardboard box without any inscriptions except my name and address. Therefore, the postman could not guess what he brought to me.

 

How did I use the extender?

The extender was delivered to me assembled in a square wooden case. So the first thing to do was to connect them all. For me, it was quite easy. I adjusted the length of the rods under the length of my penis and fixed the device on my pubic area.

I must admit that at first, the sensations were quite unusual. I felt a slight tension while using the extender. But it was even a pleasant one and did not distract me from everyday doings. Usually, I used an extender at home after work, so I did not need to hide it with clothes. I put on the device, fixed it so that the penis was pointing up and put on my loose home sweatpants. I never left the put-on extender for the nighttime, because it seemed to me that my penis would just slip out of the loop.

For the first month, I wore the device for about 3 hours every day. Then, every following month I extended the using for half an hour. As a result, at the end of my 8-months experience, I wore Jes-Extender for 6.5-7 hours every day. During the first month, I used the minimum load (600 g), then increased it gradually. At the end of 8 months, I reached 1200 g load.

 

My final impression 

When I first put on Jes-Extender, I was a little worried. After all, I already had a bad experience using extenders. What if this one will hurt or discomfort me? What if it will be still too visible under my clothes? What if my whole idea to enlarge the penis will fail miserably? In general, there were many more such “what-ifs” but nevertheless I tried Jes-Extender and never regretted about. After all, this device helped me increase the length of my penis from 3.93 to 4.92 inches in 8 months. I am planning to keep using it, so I am sure this result is not final. 

 

Pros

  • Jes-Extender was invented before other similar models.
  • Danish quality.
  • High-grade medical materials.
  • It is used not only to increase but also to straighten the penis.
  • The device was highly appreciated by professionals – andrologists and urologists.
  • Jes-Extender is CE marked. It is certified as a class 1 medical device.
  • Permanent results can be achieved.
  • There are 6 extenders in the lineup, so there are plenty to choose from.
  • Half a million satisfied customers worldwide.
  • If you used the device for more than 1000 hours with no visible result, the money will be refunded to you.
  • Discreet worldwide shipping in 1-4 days.
  • 1 or 2 years of warranty (it depends on a selected model). 

 

Cons

  • The device is quite expensive (especially the Platinum version).
  • To urinate, you have to remove the device, and it is not too fast.
  • To have sex or masturbate, you also have to remove the extender.
  • As with other mechanical extenders, you have to wait for the first results for a few months.

 

An outline

To summarize, I want to say that I am satisfied with the use of Jes-Extender. For 8 months, I managed to increase the length of my penis by almost 2 inches. I believe that this is a very cool result, and I’m not going to stop there. But remember, that if you want to increase your penis size, you should use only original extenders. And the only way to protect yourself from buying the fake one is to order Jes-Extender on the official website. If you want to explore other top extenders,you can check my buying guide here.

 

 

Penimaster PRO Review [2019]- My 6-months Experience and Results

I have been using Penimaster Pro for more than 6 months now. During this time, I analyzed both its advantages and disadvantages, and now I will share with you the results of my experience in this post. In this article, you will find my impressions, tips, and tricks for using one of the popular extenders that you can find on the market today PeniMaster PRO.

 

Background

I’m not one of those guys who complain complex a lot about their small genitals. Yes, my organ is not as large as I would want it to be, but still, it is not a micropenis. However, to be honest, if I had the opportunity to increase the length and girth of my genitals in some magical way, I would not think for too long! But until recently, I was sure that the only really working method of penis enlargement was plastic surgery, which I would never have decided to do in my whole life. Of course, I heard about dozens of dubious ways to add a couple of cherished inches to a penis with some gels, creams, and pills, but I never believed in any effect of such drugs. Here is a pro tip: they do not have any permanent effect on penis length or girth. 

How did I select the best way to enlarge my penis?

I came across the existence of the penis extenders while trying to find a scientifically-backed method to increase the length of the penis. I analyzed the characteristics and read detailed descriptions of the most famous brands of extenders, watched a bunch of videos of how to use them, looked at the “before” and “after” photos, and found out if there were any clinical studies that could prove medically the effectiveness of using these devices. As you can see, I have done some decent research. Therefore, even at the stage of ordering, I was quite confident that PeniMaster PRO stands out from other similar extenders, and now I am going to tell you why.

 

The criteria that I relied on when choosing

For me, the following nuances were principal when picking the optimal penis extender:

  • European / American quality: I was ready to spend additional funds, but it was important to get the original, not a fake.
  • Availability of clinical studies. I was not ready to risk my intimate health, trying to lengthen my penis with the help of non-tested devices.
  • Ability to use extender while sleeping. I realized that I would hardly wear it during the day when I went to the office. Therefore, I should have been able to stretch my penis during sleep.
  • The presence of real reviews I do not believe in miraculous devices that have absolutely no flaws. Thus, I analyzed carefully all the feedback from both satisfied and dissatisfied users.

PeniMaster PRO fully met these requirements, so I opted for it.

 

What is PeniMaster PRO and how does it work?

To begin with, PeniMaster PRO is a European product. The device was developed by leading German experts and production is carried out by MSP Concept, in Berlin, Germany.

This extender’s working basis is based on the principle of cell division. Penis tissues undergo gradual stretching (traction) due to the pressure exerted on them. This leads to mild microtrauma to muscle cells, which begin to divide more actively. As a result, a gradual increase in organ length and girth occurs, as well as an improvement in the blood supply to the cavernous bodies. Not only the size of the penis increase but also an improvement in erection and sexual stamina takes place. Also, the action of the device is aimed at solving a penis curvature problem and Peyronie’s disease. Besides, the extender is medical equipment, so it can be used to restore the body after undergoing surgery on the genitals, including after prostate removal. I did not have any of these problems, so my only goal was to enlarge the organ.

 

What is unique about PeniMaster PRO?

The basic principle of this extender is similar to other extenders, but it does have a fundamental difference that makes PeniMaster PRO a unique product. It is on sale since 2011, and during this time, no comparable models appeared that would use a similar feature. I am talking about the unique way to fix the penile glans, which is based on the action of vacuum, adhesion and latex membranes. Thanks to this method, the penile head is firmly fixed, which eliminates the possibility of its slipping. At the same time, there is no direct vacuum pressure on the penis tip, and it does not come into contact with the metal parts of the extender. Due to this setting, the user does not feel any pain or discomfort even with prolonged daily use of the device.

 

What is an adhesive system?

The introduction of a vacuum-adhesive fastening system has helped PeniMaster PRO to find its niche in the penis enlargement medical devices market and gain the recognition of many users. The principle of operation of this device is quite simple. A special gel is applied to the penile head and the latex membrane surface, which provides tight contact between them. Then, a manual vacuum pump ball is attached to the camera valve, and the air is pumped out of it. As a result, the latex membrane fits the head of the penis tightly, matching its anatomical shape and protecting it from direct contact with the solid parts of the extender. It only takes a few seconds to put on this device. Next, the penis needs to be fixed on the extender platform similar to other devices and worn for several hours daily.

 

The types of  PeniMaster PRO

There are several types of PeniMaster devices on the official website:

  •             PeniMaster Pro Basic: The set contains a glans chamber, a sluice ring, a latex sluice, a latex adhesion diaphragm, 2-sized split adapter, a pump ball, a hose, and a special gel for better adhesion. An important design feature is that the glans chamber implies foreskin frenulum protection. This product is the cheapest one in the line, and it costs 199 EUR.   
  •         PeniMaster Pro Belt Expander System. The main advantage of this set is the ability to use a stretcher under your clothes when you are out or while sleeping. The kit includes the standard PeniMaster Pro Basic (without the hose) and a special elastic belt. There are 3 options for the belt fixation on your body: it can be fixed on the shoulder, around the waist, and under the knee. The price of this product is 269 EUR.
  •         PeniMaster Pro Rod Expander System. The set includes the classic PeniMaster Pro Basic system (without the hose), 2 adjustable metal rods with a snap ring, and 2 split adapters. The length of the rods is 2.8-12.8 inches; therefore, the device is suitable for a penis length of 2.0-11.8 inches. However, you may buy additional rods, so the total length of the extender is not limited. The product price is 289 EUR.  
  •         PeniMaster Pro Weight Expander. This device contains PeniMaster Pro Basic plus a shoulder belt, a coupling retainer, and a set of weights. There are 5 of them in the kit with the weight 125-500 g. You may use weights one at a time or screw them into each other, depending on the desired load. The total weight of all the weights is 1250 g, but it can be applied only by experienced users. This extender option provides a constant level of traction, and it can be used only at home. The product price is 325 EUR.  

 

What about clinical research?

As I said earlier, it was one of the fundamental factors for me at the extender selection stage. Medical testing was carried out by Dr. Ignacio Moncada (Madrid, Spain), as well as with Prof. Hartmut Porst (Germany) and American Specialists – Dr. Laurence Levine and Prof. Arthur Burnett. During the research, the main focus was on solving the problem of the penis curvature. The clinical study involved 93 men suffering from Peyronie’s disease. Participants used the device for 3 months. As a result, there was a decrease in the angle of the penis curvature to 50 degrees. Based on the data obtained, it was found that the use of PeniMaster PRO can act as an alternative to the operation to straighten the penis. The results of the study were published in the famous medical magazine “British Journal of Urology”.

 

PeniMaster PRO I am using: 

There are several types of this extender on the official website which differ one from another with the kit constituents. I decided to choose the Complete Package with rods and the belt because the basic one looked too simple to me. So, when my parcel arrived, I found there were all the details, the adhesion gel, the belt, the manual and the DVD with the instruction stored in a case. To be honest, I did not meet any problems when putting all the constituents together even without the manual because it is intuitively understood how to connect the rods to the platform.

 

How did I use PeniMaster PRO?

When I was at home and was not going to do any activities, I applied the extender with rods. The device is easy to put on: first, you need to place the adhesive tip on the head of the penis, then place the penis between the rods and firmly press the platform to the pubic area. In the end, you need to thread the tip into the groove at the end of the extender and tighten the rods to set the desired level of traction. Since I live alone, I did not see the point of masking the worn extender, so I didn’t particularly bother about the fact that its outlines can be visible under my home sweatpants.

If I had to wear the extender outside the apartment (for example, several times I had to come to the office just during the set), I used it with a belt. After fixing the adhesive camera on the penile head, I connected it to the belt, which can be wrapped around the waist or over the shoulder. I used to wear it around my waist. By the way, I used the same belt during sleep. It was quite convenient; I did not notice any slipping my penis out of the extender at night.  

 

Extra pluses

It is cool that in the kit there are membranes of 3 different sizes, so you may pick the one that matches your penile glans the best way. I used a suitable membrane for a month and a half until the moment when it ceased to provide a perfect fit for the penis. I was ready for such a scenario because I knew in advance that the service life of these parts of the extender is about 1-2 months. During this time, the user must determine the appropriate size to order the next membranes. For the 6 months that I used the extender, I needed 5 membranes. I suppose these extra costs for ordering membranes are fully justified. Any extender implies the presence of parts that require gradual replacement, and this is quite normal. After all, you get your comfort while using the device exactly thanks to these membranes.

 

Some pitfalls to avoid

What can I say about the applying process? It is quite easy to put your penis inside the device and rather comfortable to wear it, but you need some time to get used to the process. For instance, now I understand that the first couple of times I applied the gel incorrectly. I lubricated the head all right, but a few drops of gel usually fell on the foreskin. As a result, the skin of the prepuce was also pulled into the glans chamber, as well as the glans tissue. This caused a slight discomfort, which I mistook for the adaptation process issues and hoped that this problem and swelling would pass soon. Only after 2-3 times of such use, I realized what was the matter and began to avoid getting the gel on the foreskin. After this, discomfort and swelling no longer appeared.

Also for the first time, I didn’t immediately succeed in putting on the device correctly. I pumped out the air, but the head was not fully sucked inside. I could not understand what was the problem, so I had to fiddle with it a bit. But then I got used to doing it properly, pumping out the air with just one squeeze of my hand. It is important to ensure that there are no air pockets between the glans and the membrane because they can cause discomfort and swelling.

 

Pros

  •         The device was developed by German experts and passed clinical tests.
  •         Using the kit helps not only to enlarge the penis but also to straighten it and to improve erection.
  •         You can choose a kit depending on your needs – from the basic one to the more advanced.
  •       You will not find the unique vacuum-adhesive system in other brands’ extenders.
  •         The adhesion system helps you to fix the penile glans the most comfortable way and to avoid its slipping.
  •         PeniMaster PRO can be used for a long time daily without discomfort.
  •         It can be applied while sleeping.
  •         The kit with a belt can be worn under loose clothes.
  •         It is made from skin-friendly and non-allergic materials.

 

Cons

  •         This product is rather expensive.
  •         It is necessary to buy additional parts (for example, sluices).
  •         If the glans chamber is used incorrectly, discomfort and foreskin swelling are possible.

 

My results 

Before starting the using of PeniMaster PRO, my penis length was 4.9 inches and its girth was 4.3 inches. Now, after 6 months of wearing the tool for 6 hours daily, it became 5.5 inches and 4.75 inches resp. I guess, this is a fine result, and I am planning to apply the extender further for a year or so. 

 

My Final Verdict

For six months of use, I have never regretted that I decided to enlarge my penis with the help of an extender and that I chose PeniMaster PRO for this purpose. I believe that the device is fully coping with its task and I highly recommend it. You can buy it from their official website here.

My Fleshlight Review

According to AdamandEve, Fleshlight was the most popular sex toy last 2018. But since we are all curious, it’s fine to ask. What in the world is a Fleshlight and what is it for? Did a lot of people just misspelled the word flashlight and started to make a fuss out of it? For the sake of your peace of mind, we are here to help you answer your questions regarding this odd term.

First things first, the term “Fleshlight” didn’t just pop out in the internet because someone accidentally misspelled flashlight. However, this term was derived from the term “flashlight” since it looks like a flashlight on the outside. But don’t let its looks fool you especially if you noticed other men carrying it in their backpacks or luggage. Read on to learn more about this fantastic invention!

 

What is a Fleshlight?

Fleshlight is a famous brand of sex toy that is specially designed for penetration so it widely marketed to men. In other words, it is a male masturbator where men can insert their genitalia to pleasure themselves. As a male sex toy, it is designed to increase the pleasure of masturbation by stimulating new sensations. Take note, we mean a higher level of new sensations since you will not experience the same feeling with other sex toys. 

Depending on your taste and preference, there are different textures that you can choose from. The inside of the device is designed to simulate actual intercourse. Clearly, it is not just a piece of a boring toy where you can stick your gun. It’s not as awesome as having sex with your partner/s but it’s certainly better than other masturbating toys out there. It is also true that there are already offered products on the market that are considered as sex toy masturbators.

They are available in various shapes and forms, so we will not be surprised if you find them weird. We agree though. Some look a little too much that innocent people might not even guess their true purpose at first glimpse. However, we noticed that the materials used in other products are different. No wonder they feel different too since some of them actually contained suspicious chemicals.

Of course, these chemicals are now prohibited for manufacturing sex toys and other commercial use. If you’re worried about getting ill just because you succumb with the burning desire to pleasure yourself, don’t be. 

 

History of Fleshlight

In case you are wondering who the person behind this brilliant invention is, it’s none other than Steve Shubin. Everything started in 1994 when the inventor Steve Shubin and his wife decided to extend their family and have kids. However, her wife had complications during her pregnancy so the doctor told them that they can’t have sex physically. Apparently, Steve was a sexually active man which led him to try all available products at that time to satisfy his needs.

After failing to find the right product, he decided that he needed something different. He needed a sex toy that felt better and real. Thus, he asked for his wife’s consent if she would mind if he created a toy to satisfy his needs while she’s pregnant. Obviously, she agreed and that’s how Fleshlight was born. Steve Shubin developed and patented it in 1998 as a “device for discreet sperm collection”. He also developed and patented a SuperSkin material that feels like human skin.

Most importantly, it is free from phthalate which is known as a harmful chemical that was recently banned in 2010. This stopped the sex toy manufacturers in Europe from using this chemical in their products. Looks like Steve really took his invention seriously and studied every element of Fleshlight before introducing it to the market. Now, Steve & the Fleshlight Team have already released more than 100 models which started from his sex toy. 

If that is not enough to impress you, Steve and his team also released a range of Fleshlight Girls. These toys were molded directly from the anatomy of the most popular porn stars today. Sounds very interesting, isn’t it? 

 

Fleshlight Models

Now that we’re done with the basics, let’s dive into something deeper and more specific. Fleshlight comes in different models so you don’t have to worry about running out of designs with unique sleeves. In fact, its 4 main models that are already available in the market include the following:

 

  • Fleshlight Classic Series

This is the original Fleshlight model that was first introduced in the market in 2001. Since then, IFL never stopped enhancing its features, design and used materials. Thus, you can expect its latest versions to be lighter and more creative to stimulate a more realistic experience. On the other hand, the Classic versions are definitely bigger than a regular flashlight. After all, it is made to accommodate a penis that is up to 8.5 inches long. How to spice your moment with this little fella? 

 

  • Classic Pink Lady Original and Classic Pink Butt

Relive your first time and let your desire drive you into the heavenly feeling with this classic model of Fleshlight. Each timeless model can give you something special and unique without getting into trouble for sneaking your girl after curfew. It has a total length of 9.75 inches and an insertable length of 8.5 inches. All Classic models have smooth sleeves that are designed for those who are more sensitive genitals. This is also a great solution if you want your bed sessions to last longer and improve your performance.

  • Build Your Own

A sex toy with your personal touch can be more satisfying than simply tossing items into your cart. First, choose the color of your Fleshlight’s case then, you have to choose your preferred orifice. Do you want the Lady or the Butt? The next is the texture which includes the Original, Mini-Lotus, Heavenly, Destroya, Super Ribbed, Super Tight, Utopia, ad Wonder Wave. To enjoy the feel of a reel vagina, the closest texture we recommend is the Mini-Lotus sleeve.Build your own fleshlight

The Destroya sleeve also offers the best sensations as you penetrate deeper. Other sleeves are also fine but their level of intensity seems to be a little lower. But then again, our taste and preference vary so they might feel great on you. You can also add some accessories like the Fleshlight shower mount, Fleshpump, and sleeve warmer if you want.

5 Reasons to Buy a Fleshlight

Still having second thoughts whether you should get a Fleshlight or not? To help you make up your mind, here are 5 reasons why you should get one for yourself at least:

 

  • Simulates the feel of real sex.

Enjoy the moment even if it’s just you and your toys. When emergency calls, Fleshlight is always ready to satisfy your cravings. You can even warm it up to make it feel more real while enjoying different textures and styles. 

 

  • Fully body-safe.

You can use it over and over again without feeling any skin irritation unless you have very sensitive skin. Rest assured, Fleshlight toys and accessories are designed and created using materials that are body-safe.

 

  • Provide a variety of options to try.

Feel free to try them all to see which one suits you best. You don’t have to limit yourself with just a single sex toy, there’s a long list of items to choose from. Fleshlight offers sex toys that come with different textures, orifice, colors, sizes, sensations, and case designs. You can also choose from a wide range of sex toy accessories for a more satisfying feeling.

 

  • Be very easy to clean and durable.

You just have to remove the sleeve from its casing whenever you need to clean it. Remove the cap in the end then rinse the casing with water only. Rinse the sleeve well inside and outside. If you’re a little OC, you can use an anti-bacterial cleaner specific for sex toys. Never use any kind of soap for cleaning it as it can ruin your toys’ material. To dry it, just place it in a well-ventilated place for a few hours or up to 24 hours. 

Even though it is made of plastic, Fleshlight made sure that its materials used have the highest quality. Yes, its thick plastic case can crack but it would require a lot of force to break.

 

 

  • Be discreet and portable.

From the moment you order it, you can expect it to arrive in a discreet package. Despite being quite heavy, its simple box comes with each model’s complete package and instructions. Once out of the box, you can carry it anywhere you want without being embarrassed. There’s nothing wrong with carrying a huge “flashlight” anyway. People won’t judge you unless you parade it without replacing its sleeve caps first. 

Whether you’re planning a local or international trip, you can slip it past the airport security with ease. Not to mention if you go for the Quickshot models which are the smallest units of male masturbators from Fleshlight. 

 

Final Words

Are you having second thoughts about getting this cool toy to pleasure yourself? Believe it or not, having this is just similar with women having one or more vibrators. Besides, Fleshlight is not marketed to make you feel like you’re cheating on your partner. If women can be satisfied with sex toys, men deserve something like this too. If you have a wife/girlfriend/partner, you just have to make her understand how it works.

Depending on your creativity, you can even spice up your sex life by using this sex toy. You can offer to use a vibrator on her while you use this Fleshlight with her. It’s also a great alternative to stay up a little longer and satisfy yourself if she’s already exhausted. If she’s already hurting down there, you can give her a break and lose yourself on this. Now, do yourself a favor and take advantage of the satisfying sensation that it can give you any time you like.

ABSTINENCE ONLY UNTIL MARRIAGE PROGRAMS

Abstinence-only-until-marriage programs have gained popularity in recent years in large part because the federal government continues to sink over $170 million each year into such programs.  These programs have never been proven effective and often rely on fear, shame, and misinformation.  In addition, virginity pledges, a cornerstone of many of these programs, have been shown to be ineffective at best and possibly harmful.


ANALYZING DEFINITIONS AND CURRICULA

As abstinence-only-until-marriage programs have gained popularity many new curricula and resources have been created.  A number of researchers and organizations have reviewed these materials and found that they rely on fear and shame, include medical inaccuracies, and are inconsistent in their definitions of abstinence.  In addition to the resources listed in this section, see  SIECUS’ reviews of some of the more popular abstinence-only-until-marriage curricula at http://www.communityactionkit.org/curricula_reviews.html

 

Defining Abstinence: Views of Directors, Instructors, and Participants in Abstinence-Only-Until-Marriage Programs in Texas

Source:  Patricia Goodson, et. al., “Defining abstinence: views of directors, instructors, and participants in abstinence-only-until-marriage programs in Texas,” Journal of School Health 73(3)(2005): 91-96.

Description:  The researchers evaluated how program directors, instructors, and teens in eight Texas abstinence-only-until-marriage education programs define the term “abstinence.”

Key Findings:

  • There was “substantial variability” in how the term “abstinence” was defined.
  • Researchers concluded that “…many of the programs awarded federal funding for abstinence education are not sex education programs.”

Description: This Congressional report prepared for Representative Henry Waxman (D-California) found that widely used federally funded abstinence-only curricula distort information, misrepresent the facts, and promote gender stereotypes.

Key Findings:

  • More than 80 percent of the abstinence-only curricula reviewed contain false, misleading, or distorted information about reproductive health.
  • The curricula reviewed misrepresent the effectiveness of contraceptives in preventing STDs and unintended pregnancy.
  • The curricula reviewed contain false information about the risks of abortion, blur religion and science, promote gender stereotypes, and contain basic scientific errors.

Prevalence of Unprotected Anal Sex among Teens Requires New Education Strategies

Prevalence of Unprotected Anal Sex among Teens Requires New Education Strategies

Description: 

Although anal intercourse is known to be a risky behavior when it comes to transmission of HIV and other STDs, most messages given to teens about STDs and condom use focus on vaginal intercourse. This study examined the prevalence of anal intercourse and associated condom use rates in an effort to determine if different education strategies are necessary. The data was acquired as part of a greater longitudinal study of adolescent STD acquisition and cervical ectopy.

The participants were 350 adolescent females ages 12–18 from an urban environment; 96% were African American. All of them had engaged in sexual activity, were healthy, and were neither pregnant nor had been pregnant in the previous three months. Participants were asked about sexual activity with two different types of partners: a “main partner” and a “casual partner.”

The participants were given the following definition about the partner types: “A main partner is someone that you have vaginal sex with and that you are serious about. A casual partner is someone you have vaginal sex with but do not consider to be a main partner.” The casual partner could be someone the participant had had sex with once, or many times—as long as she did not consider him to be a main partner.

Participants were asked about their sexual activity with each type of partner in the last three months.  Specifically, researchers asked about the: (a) occurrence and frequency of vaginal sex, (b) frequency of condom use in vaginal sex, (c) occurrence and frequency of anal sex, (d) frequency of condom use in anal sex, and (e) method of contraception use with partner (condom, withdrawal, anal sex, spermicide, etc.).

Source:

Avril Melissa Houston, M.D., M.P.H, et al., “More Than Just Vaginal Intercourse: Anal Intercourse and Condom Use Patterns in the Context of ‘Main’ and ‘Casual’ Sexual Relationships among Urban Minority Adolescent Females,” Journal of Pediatric Adolescent Gynecology 20 (2007): 299-304

Key Findings:

Participants were more sexually active with main partners. While the frequency of either anal or vaginal sex was lower with casual partners, participants were much more likely to use contraception/condoms with casual partners during both anal and vaginal sex.

Furthermore, the rates of condom use during anal sex were significantly lower than during vaginal sex. This was reflected both in the median frequency for condom use and the lower percentage of participants who always used a condom for anal sex.

Type of Partner

  • 302 (86.5%) participants had engaged in any sexual activity with a main partner.
  • 142 (40.7%) participants had engaged in any sexual activity with a casual partner.

Frequency of Sex

  • Of the participants who reported having had sex with a main partner, 272 (90.1%) had had vaginal intercourse and 47 (15.6%) had had anal intercourse. The median frequency of sex for each type of intercourse was once per week.
  • Of the participants who reported having had sex with a casual partner, 118 (83.1%) had had vaginal intercourse and 17 (12%) had had anal intercourse. The median frequency of sex for each type of intercourse was few times per month.

Frequency of Condom Use

  • With a main partner, the median frequency of condom use during vaginal sex was sometimes, while the median frequency of condom use during anal sex was few times in the last 3 months.
  • With a casual partner, the median frequency of condom use during vaginal sex was always, while the median frequency of condom use during anal sex was few times in the last 3 months.
  • With a main partner, 32.4% of participants always used a condom during vaginal sex, while only 21.3% of participants always used a condom during anal sex.
  • With a casual partner, 61% of participants always used a condom during vaginal sex, while only 47.1% of participants always used a condom during anal sex.

Contraception Use during Last Vaginal Intercourse

  • With a main partner, 48.2% used a condom, 18.4% used withdrawal, 6.6% used spermicide, and 15.1% used any other methods.
  • With a casual partner, 70.3% used a condom, 29.7% used withdrawal, 13.6% used spermicide, and 38.1% used any other methods.

Anal Sex as Contraception

  • 41.2% of the participants had used anal sex as a method of contraception with a casual partner, while only 8.5% had used anal sex for contraception with a main partner

SIECUS Analysis: This study has a number of very disturbing findings.  First, that participants are not using condoms consistently for vaginal sex and second, that they are even less likely to use condoms when engaging in anal sex.  These results show that the standard discussion of STDs and pregnancy in a vaginal sex paradigm is obviously insufficient in meeting the needs of today’s teens. Education about condoms must improve and take into account the reality of young people’s relationships and behaviors.

While the frequency of condom use was too low regardless of partner, it is interesting to note that young people were even less likely to use a condom with a main partner.  It is unclear if the subjects were motivated by the belief that they are less likely to contract an STD or become pregnant with a main partner, by a greater desire for intimacy with that partner, or by some other factor.  While further research on young people’s motivations could be useful, these findings suggest that young people need a better forum for learning about condom use and, perhaps, additional help in communicating about condom use with partners.

Another worrisome finding is the prevalence of unprotected anal sex. Anal sex is as risky in terms of STD transmission as vaginal sex, yet participants were more likely to forgo condoms.  This raises questions about both their level of knowledge of STD risks and their reasons for using condoms.  In particular it suggests (as previous studies have) that young people are more concerned with pregnancy than STDs.  This seems to be confirmed by the number of participants who acknowledged using anal sex as a method of contraception. The idea that anal sex is somehow “safer” than vaginal sex (and therefore can be performed unprotected) is a dangerous misconception.

Young people need comprehensive sexuality education that discusses not only vaginal sex, condoms, and contraception, but also extends that discussion to other sexual practices, like anal sex.

Sex Education Series : Condoms and Pregnancy Prevention

Workshop Summary: Scientific Evidence on Condom Effectiveness for Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Prevention

Source: Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

Description: Published in 2001, this report presents the findings of a workshop to evaluate the effectiveness of latex male condoms. The effort was led by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in association with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Key Statistics:

  • In a recent well-controlled randomized clinical trial of monogamous couples using latex male condoms for contraception over six months, the pregnancy rate during “typical use” was reported at 6.3%, with a 1.1% pregnancy rate during “consistent use.”
  • As condom experience and facility in use of condoms increases in couples using condoms as their primary method of birth control, unintended pregnancies decrease.
  • The combined method failure rate (slippage plus breakage) of condoms is estimated at 1.6%–3.6%.

Male Condoms

Source: R. A. Hatcher, et al., Contraceptive Technology, 17th revised Edition (New York: Ardent Media, Inc., 1998).

Description: This article contains all of the basic information about male condoms as a method of contraception that health care practitioners, educators, and users will need

Key Statistics:

  • To fully understand research on condom effectiveness, one must understand the difference between method failure and user failure. Method failure is failure that results from a defect in the product. User failure refers to failure that results from incorrect or inconsistent use.
  • The first-year effectiveness rate in preventing pregnancy among typical condom users on average is 86%. This includes pregnancies resulting from errors in condom use.
  • Method failure of male condoms (failure that is a direct result of a flaw in the condom) is uncommon. In fact, it is estimated to occur among only 3% of couples using condoms consistently and correctly during the first year of use. To help individuals understand this estimate, Contraceptive Technology explains that “only three of 100 couples who use condoms perfectly for one year will experience an unintended pregnancy.”
  • If each of these 100 couples had intercourse at the average coital frequency of 83 acts per year, then 100 couples would have intercourse a combined 8,300 times a year. Three pregnancies resulting from 8,300 acts of condom use is a remarkably low pregnancy rate (.04 %) when calculated on a per-condom basis.
  • Among couples using condoms as their primary method of contraception, approximately 14% experience an unintended pregnancy each year. It is important to remember that they may not have been using a condom correctly or at all when they became pregnant.
  • In comparison, 85% of women using no birth control will become pregnancy in the first year, as will 25% of women using periodic abstinence.

l Pregnancy Rates for Birth Control Methods

Source: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “Consumer-Friendly Birth Control Information,” Consumer Magazine (April 1997).

Description: This table compares the effectiveness of different birth control methods in preventing pregnancy. The methods studied include male and female sterilization, implants (Norplant), hormone shots (Depo-Provera), oral contraceptives, intrauterine devices (IUDs), male and female condoms, vaginal sponges, cervical caps, diaphragms, spermicides, withdrawal, and natural family planning methods (calendar, temperature, cervical mucus).

Key Statistics:

  • With consistent and correct use, male condoms have a 3% failure rate, the diaphragm has a 6% failure rate, the pill (estrogen/progestin) has a 0.1% failure rate, and withdrawal has a 4% failure rate.
  • With “typical use”—which the FDA defines as not always using the method correctly, not using the method during every act of sexual intercourse, sometimes forgetting to take the birth control pill, or using the method correctly but having it fail— the failure rate for condoms is 14%, the failure rate for the diaphragm is 20%, the failure rate for the pill is 5%, and the failure rate for withdrawal is 19%.

Comprehensive Education about Sexuality

Numerous studies and evaluations published in peer-reviewed literature have looked at sexuality education programs. Studies have shown that comprehensive education about sexuality, programs that teach teens about both abstinence and contraception/ disease prevention, are an effective strategy to help young people delay their initiation of sexual intercourse, reduce the number of sexual partners they have, and increase condom or contraceptive use when they do become pregnant.

EVALUATIONS
The studies listed in this section are reviews of evaluations of interventions designed to prevent HIV, other STDs, and teen pregnancy.

Sex and HIV Education Programs for Youth: Their Impact and Important Characteristics
Source: Doug Kirby, et. al., Sex and HIV Education Programs for Youth: Their Impact and Important Characteristics (Scotts Valley, CA: ETR Associates, 2006).

Description: The researchers gathered information on 83 different studies of effective education programs that showed an ability to reduce risks for HIV, other STDs, or unintended pregnancy. Of the 83 studies reviewed, 56 were based in the United States. Programs targeted young people ages 9–24.

Key Findings:

Of the 52 studies that measured impact on the initiation of sex, 22 (42 %) found that the programs significantly delayed the initiation of sex among one or more groups for at least six months, 29 (55%) found no significant impact, and one (in the United States) found the program hastened the initiation of sex.
Of the 54 studies measuring program impact on condom use, almost half (48%) showed increased condom use; none found decreased condom use.
Of the 13 studies that measured pregnancy rates, three found significant positive effects, nine found insignificant effects, and one (in the United States) found significant negative effects.
Of the 10 studies that measured impact on STI rates, two found a positive impact, six found no significant impact, and two found a negative impact.
Based on these finding the researchers identified 17 characteristics of effective programs.

Emerging Answers: Research Findings on Programs to Reduce Teen Pregnancy
Source: Doug Kirby, Emerging Answers: Research Findings on Programs to Reduce Teen Pregnancy (Washington, DC: National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, 2001).

Description: The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy commissioned a review of programs considered effective at reducing teen pregnancy and/or STD rates among young people. Kirby gathered information on over 250 studies to identify the elements that made the programs effective.

Key Findings:

Research clearly shows that comprehensive education about sexuality does not hasten the onset of sex, increase the frequency of sex, or increase the number of sexual partners teens have.
Research shows that some sexuality and HIV education programs can delay the onset of sex, reduce the frequency of sex, or reduce the number of sexual partners.
Research on abstinence-only-until-marriage programs, however, remains inconclusive. This report identified several programs that had proven ability to delay sex or increase condom or other contraceptive use, thereby decreasing unprotected sex. Among these were:

Description: This paper compiles descriptions of the rigorously evaluated programs that have demonstrated effectiveness at reducing adolescents’ risk for pregnancy and STDs, including HIV.

Key Findings:

12 of the 19 programs included in this review showed a delay in the initiation of sex.
17 of the 19 programs included in this review had beneficial effects on sexual behaviors among sexually experienced youth.
Eight of the 19 programs included in this review programs had a positive impact on incidence of STDs or on the number or rate of adolescent pregnancies.

Description: Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reviewed U.S.-based HIV-prevention research literature from 2000 through 2004 to identify interventions demonstrating best evidence of efficacy for reducing HIV risk. They found eighteen interventions that met the criteria for “best evidence.”

Key Findings:

Results of these interventions included increased condom use and reductions in unprotected sexual intercourse, number of sexual partners, injection drug use or needle sharing, and newly acquired sexually transmitted infections.
None of the “best evidence” programs were based on abstinence-only-until-marriage.

A Decade in Review: Building on the Experiences of Past Adolescent STI/HIV Interventions to Optimize Future Prevention Efforts
Source: J.M. Sales, et. al., “A decade in review: Building on the experiences of past adolescent STI/HIV interventions to optimize future prevention efforts,” Sexually Transmitted Infections 82 (2006): 431-436.

Description: Researchers reviewed findings from selected adolescent STD/HIV interventions in the United States between 1994 and 2004. They examined the most current STD risk reduction programs in a wide range of settings: communities, schools, clinics, detention homes, and drug treatment facilities. They then identified the features that were associated with effective programs.

Key Findings:

The risk behavior most susceptible to change was condom use during vaginal sex.
Researchers concluded that to be most effective at reducing risk, programs should educate teens on correct condom use and other behaviors that have been proven most likely to change.

How common is Condom Breakage and Slippage?

This section contains information on condom breakage and slippage. Research in this section covers condom slippage and breakage rates, as well as factors that affect condom breakage and slippage.

Workshop Summary: Scientific Evidence on Condom Effectiveness for Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) Prevention Partners
Source: Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

Description: Published in 2001, this report presents the findings of a workshop to evaluate the effectiveness of latex male condoms in preventing STDs including HIV. The effort was led by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in association with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The workshop summary contains a detailed analysis of breakage and slippage rates.

Key Statistics:

The latex male condom accounts for 97% of all United States condom sales.
Condom shape, thickness, and other specifications, including the latex formulation itself, have been engineered to produce a product that is placed easily (onto the penis), minimizes slippage and breakage during vaginal intercourse, and contains the collected fluids.
The combined method failure (slippage plus breakage) of condoms is estimated at 1.6% –3.6%.
Factors affecting slippage and breakage are related to user familiarity and knowledge, including user experience, selection of condom size (width), and proper use of additional (exogenous) lubricant.
As condom experience and facility in use of condoms increases in couples using condoms as their primary method of birth control, unintended pregnancies decrease.
With increased education and improved experience, one can expect condom slippage and breakage rates to decrease.

Young Men’s Experience with Condom Breakage
Source: Laura Duberstein Lindberg, et al, “Young Men’s Experience with Condom Breakage,” Family Planning Perspectives 29.3 (May/June 1997).

Description: This article contains the results of a study to determine what factors affect condom breakage in males ages 17–22. Variables in the study include experience with condoms, amount of sexuality education, history of STDs, and household income.

Key Statistics:

Increased experience with condoms reduced the likelihood of experiencing condom breakage.
Recent sexuality education was associated with an almost 80% decrease in the risk of breakage among young men who used condoms infrequently.
Young males who had ever had a sexually transmitted disease (STD), or whose sexual partner had had an STD, were almost three times as likely as other respondents to have experienced condom breakage.
Young males with a household income of less than $60,000 were 2–3 times as likely to have broken a condom as were those with a higher household income.

Male Condoms
Source: R. A. Hatcher, et al., Contraceptive Technology, 17th revised Edition (New York: Ardent Media, Inc., 1998).

Description: This article contains all of the basic information about male condoms as a method of contraception that health care practitioners, educators, and users will need

Key Statistics:

Although people fear that condoms may break or fall off during use, studies indicate this rarely occurs when condoms are properly used.
Most studies report that condoms break less than 2% of the time during intercourse or withdrawal.
It is also important to note that not all condom breaks are equally risky. As many as 24 to 65% occur before intercourse and pose no biological risk of pregnancy or infection if a new condom is used for intercourse.
Condoms fall off the penis in 0.6% to 5.4% acts of vaginal intercourse and may slip down the penis without falling off in 3.4% to 13.1% of acts of vaginal intercourse.
Breakage rates during anal sex for gay men in four prospective studies ranged from 0.5% to 12%, with rates less than 2% in three of the studies.
