Fleshlight is among the most famous brands in the sex toys industry, offering various products that enhance the sexual pleasure for their customers. They’ve even partnered with famous porn stars, manufacturing products molded from the actual sexual parts of your favorite fantasy partners.
One of their products is the Quickshot, which promises to make you feel as if you’re actually having sex with your favorite porn star. The main issue with this is that it’s a manual device. You still have to hold it by hand and stroke it along your penis to get the pleasure you’re aiming for.
That’s not really any trouble, but Quickshot Launch offers automatic operations instead. You don’t have to manually use the Quickshot Launch to stroke it along your penis. Instead, the Quickshot Launch does it for you. It’s the no-hands DIY masturbatory accessory that makes self-pleasure a lot easier.
What is the Quickshot Launch?
At first glance, it looks like some sort of evil coffeemaker. It’s even easy enough to imagine it as a futuristic weapon that Darth Vader or the Borg would use. It’s kinda funny to think about the Dark Lord of the Sith using this device for the purpose it was built.
In any case, the design starts with 2 pillars on a circular base, with some angled handles on the sides for the adjustment controls. The circular base and the handles also stabilize the unit, so it can stand up on your penis on its own, without the need for you to actually hold it. The whole thing is about 14 inches tall and 10 inches wide.
The pillars are also connected by a “bridge” on top, where you can then set up your smartphone or tablet. That way, you can watch porn while you masturbate.
The Quickshot Launch has enough space between the pillars to accommodate the Quickshot device. It’s actually designed specifically for the Quickshot, though there are actually several Quickshot versions. All those versions will work with the Quickshot Launch, since they come with the same basic size measurements.
Once you’ve set the Quickshot with the Quickshot Launch, you can then set it on your penis and enjoy your automatic masturbatory session.
Here are the features you can expect from the Quickshot Launch:
This comes with a built-in battery, which can provide enough power for a 1-hour masturbatory session. For most guys, that’s more than enough time to get their rocks off. But the purchase also comes with an electrical adaptor for charging the battery, and you can leave it plugged in if you’re planning for a longer session.
3 Pleasure Zones
There is a position button at the back of this device, allowing you to set the Quickshot Launch on a particular area of your penis. Keep in mind that unlike the 9-inch Fleshlight, the Quickshot meant for use with the Quickshot Launch is only 3.5 inches long.
So, you have your options on where to position this. You can set this up at the base of the penis, on the shaft, or at the tip of the penis. With the button, you can do this more quickly without having to fumble the positioning manually.
The controls also allow you to customize the length of the stroke along your penis. You can opt for a long stroke, or concentrate on a specific area with short strokes. So, if you want to focus more on the head of the penis, short strokes are more effective.
There are 4 stroke lengths available, so you can finesse the stroke length and get it just right.
Stroke Frequency (Speed)
This also allows you to adjust the stroke speed, just like if you’re masturbating manually. You can go with slow strokes at first, and then you can faster as you achieve orgasm.
With the Quickshot Launch, you also get 4 stroke speeds. The Quickshot Launch can get up to 250 strokes per minute, and that sure is fast. That’s faster that 4 strokes per second. Even if you can do that manually, you won’t be able to do it for long.
However, it all depends on the stroke length as well. You can only get to the 250 strokes per minute if you also opt for the shortest stroke length.
Plenty of guys know all about self-pleasure when you’re in front of the PC desktop monitor. The issue there is that you can’t just lie back on your bed so you’re more relaxed.
But this time, you can set your smartphone on the smartphone mount. Just set it there, and you won’t even have to use your hands to hold it. You can use this when watching porn, or even if you’re video-messaging with your partner. The mount is universal, so you can expect it to accommodate your smartphone regardless of what model you have.
Using the Quickshot Launch
This is how it went for me went I got this baby out for a spin. With several tries, I figured out the optimal process.
This is obviously the first step. While you can use the Quickshot Launch while it’s plugged in, the electrical cord is too much of a hassle (especially if you don’t have a convenient electrical socket near your bed). So, charge this bay to the max while you’re not using it.
With a full charge, you get an hour’s worth of fun. That should be enough for most guys.
Set the Quickshot
Also obviously, you’ve already bought your separate Quickshot. First unscrew this on both ends, so that you have an opening for your penis while the opening at the other end lets the come spurt out.
Set the Quickshot in the cradle between the pillars, then it’s ready. Well, almost ready.
You still have to use copious amounts of lube. You want to lube your penis, along with the inside of the Quickshot. That way, your penis slides in nicely. You really don’t want to skimp on the lube, believe me on this. You don’t want to get dry just when you’re amping the strokes to 250 strokes per minute. That’s definitely not fun.
Do Some Foreplay
Sometimes you have to think of it as a real sex session. That means you need some foreplay first, at least enough to get a proper erection.
But when you’re ready for some simulated penis play, then it’s time to really have fun. Insert the penis while you set the Quickshot Launch right over it.
You can also set up your smartphone on the mount at this time. That way, you can start with a nice porn video to help you get and maintain your erection. The perfect porn video can even help you achieve a terrific orgasm, though the Quickshot Launch sensations will also have a lot to do with that.
Adjust the Controls
It’s probably best to go with the slow speed setting first, like you’re trying to ease up. It’s a bit like driving—start with 1st gear first before you get all the way up to 5th gear.
Play around with the positioning as well. This is especially true when you’ve selected short strokes. It’s fun when you toggle the controls so that the device is massaging your base, then the shaft, and then the head of the penis.
Experiment with your Quickshot as well. These may very well offer a nice blowjob simulation too, so check out how the effect varies when you play around with the settings.
Pros of the Quickshot Launch
So, what advantages do you enjoy with the Quickshot Launch? Let’s list them:
You Get Intense Orgasms
That’s the point, isn’t it? The Quickshot Launch does what it’s supposed to do, though the specific type of sensation you enjoy will depend on the type of Quickshot you get for this. At least it works for all Quickshot models, so you can buy 3 different Quickshot devices and buy a single Quickshot Launch.
But mainly, the orgasms you get from using this beats any sort of orgasm you can achieve with your hand. It’s even better than if you’re using the Quickshot manually. This is truly great because everything’s easy and automated, and you can adjust the controls to get “just right” sensation you want.
60 Minutes of Power
This can be terribly frustrating if it only works for half an hour or even less. But with a full hour to play with, there’s certainly no hurry. You can enjoy an extended foreplay session while watching a porn video on your smartphone, before you get to the “serious fucking” stage and gallop off to completion.
It Offers Terrific Customization
Every guy has their own preferences on where to focus when playing around with their penis. This lets you toggle easily though base, shaft and tip. Some guys like to go with the shaft first before ending with the tip, while others prefer stimulating the tip first before finishing by focusing on the base. Regardless of your preferences, this lets you pick the area of focus without any hassle.
Then you can also set the stroke length, along with the stroke speed. It’s even fun to play around with the various combinations. Mathematically you get 3x4x4 possible combinations, so you have 48 different sets of settings to pick from.
The fast speed is especially great. I don’t know if I can possibly match the 250 strokes per minute speed by hand, but I’m sure I won’t be able to do that for a significant amount of time. Never mind doing it for a full hour—even a full minute may be impossible.
Easy to Use
The controls are quite intuitive. With the smartphone mount, it also frees your hand from holding the smartphone while watching a video.
The handles are comfortable to hold, in case you want to secure it on your penis. The controls are ideally placed on the handles.
It Dries Quickly After Cleaning
It’s all plastic, so you can wipe it down to dry or just air-dry it.
Is it perfect? Well, if you’re prone to nitpicking then it’s easy enough to find drawbacks with the Quickshot Launch.
It’s Just an Accessory
That means buying the Quickshot Launch isn’t enough. You need to get the Quickshot device first, before this Quickshot Launch becomes useful.
This is a problem, starting with how it’s virtually impossible to travel with this discreetly. You don’t want to bring this along when airport security opens your bag.
Then when you use it, you may feel that it’s a bit cumbersome. True, it’s more comfortable to use than its Fleshlight Launch counterpart, but it’s a bit weird to use, especially at first. But then again, sex feels weird at first until you get the hang of it, right?
It Can Get Noisy
With the lower speed settings, it’s not really all that noisy. But when you get to the faster speed settings, the noise will be enough for people outside your room to hear. It’s definitely not for large households, if you want some sort of privacy.
This is best if you live alone, if you don’t want anyone else to know about this.
The Cleanup Can Be Messy
There’s the lube to deal with afterwards, and then you have to clean up your cum. Since it’s open at the other end too, you cum gets everywhere, so you’ll be wiping down the nooks and crannies of the Quickshot Launch afterwards.
There’s a certain logic in using the Quickshot automatic machine. After all, these days a lot more people prefer doing things automatically instead of manually. Manual operations, whether you’re operating a screwdriver or driving a car, tends to be more difficult and requires more effort.
Automatic operations, on the other hand, are easier. You’re also able to do things that may not be possible at all with just your own hand.
So, should you get the Quickshot Launch? It makes a lot of sense if you already have the Quickshot. Using the Quickshot Launch automizes the operations. You can customize the experience, and then you can just sit back and relax. You can even literally place your hands at the back of your head, close your eyes, and just feel.
It’s a different matter if you’re starting from scratch. You’ll have to buy the Quickshot first, and then you get the Quickshot Launch. It’s a rather sizable investment. But in the end, it’s all up to you. It does feel great, and for many, that’s a feeling they’re willing to pay for.
