I really did expect to ditch it sooner. Mainly because I have little sense of follow through, but also because I didn't expect it to be nearly as good as it was.
On February 16th, I vowed to not have solo masturbation time with anything other than my brand new Fleshlight to see what happened. I saw this as a possible way to reduce my “masturbation death grip syndrome” and also a way to experience something new and different.
So where are we, a month later? Well, I can say without a shadow of a doubt, this is the best male masturbation aid I have ever come in contact with. You may be able to get a “sleeve” for $12 bucks somewhere, doesn't make it worth it. Most of the sleeves and “pocket pussies” are simply too short for me, and I know i'm just slightly north of average, so I'd say most people have this issue as well. This is not a pocket pussy, it's huge for one, you'd need (to paraphrase Dennis Leary) “a pocket the size of Detroit” to store this. It's huge and solid. And I don't see many guys needing anything longer than that (except maybe this guy)
As I talked about most of the pros of the Fleshlight in part III and talked about how to clean it in the sidebar, I'm going to finish this experiment up by talking about the purpose of it in the first place. As I mentioned briefly in part I, my issue from the beginning was delayed ejaculation, and the inability to cum from many simple standard sex play activities. So, has the Fleshlight been successful and helped cure me of that issue?
That's really all I can say just now. I haven't had as much of an issue recently, but it's still there. So therefore I cannot recommend the Fleshlight on that concept alone. (Though I can fully recommend it for the reasons already mentioned and for the fact that it really is awesome.) That said, though the Fleshlight adds a small bit of extra time and effort to masturbation, and though I have to use water based lube which I really dislike (silicone will degrade the cyberskin) I think I've discovered my new method and will be using it for quite a while. And that is a strong recommendation, after all, I've been masturbating for over 20 years now.
We'll see if, given enough time, my “death grip syndrome” does go away. If not, I've found yet another enjoyable way to pass the time.
