This is it, people; the interactive male masturbation toy you’ve been hoping and waiting for ever since you got your Fleshlight in the mail all those years ago. Enter the future of pleasure: The Fleshlight Launch, an innocuous plastic sleeve that turns your Fleshlight into your favorite porn star. It is a feat of teledildonics — albeit a slightly finicky feat — that gives your Fleshlight a life of its own. It’s easy enough to use: Charge it up, download the app, connect to bluetooth, shove your Fleshlight in, and sit back for the ride. By pairing the movements of the porn stars on screen with the motions of the Fleshlight Launch, you get to feel as close to what the male porn star is feeling without having to leave your couch. It’s an express trip into pound town by way of a budding technology that takes a classic male masturbation toy and turns it into something entirely new.
Who It’s For
The Fleshlight Launch is for people like you and me, who have eagerly awaited a time where solo sex means some semblance of actual sex. While you’re (obviously) not banging any of the beautiful women on screen, the illusion of sex holds up immensely well if you focus on the video that you’re watching and let the Launch do its job. Despite its simple mechanism, this thing delivers a mind-blowingly nuanced performance. When the actor’s getting an HJ on camera, you get one too; when he goes deep, the Fleshlight goes deep; when he’s pounding away, you’d better believe your member will get waxed hard and fast. Pro-tip: Go for the blowjob videos, because we swear it feels almost the same — opt for one of the Fleshlight Mouth models so you can go for the gold. One of the coolest features about this thing is the amount of control you can have over your experience. Let’s say you’ve loved Lisa Ann since before Who's Nailin' Paylin? With the Launch, you can virtually sleep with Lisa Ann with a Lisa Ann Fleshlight model, effectively putting you inside her. (Sort of.) It's crazy stuff.

What They're Saying
“Meet the future of masturbation. Or, at least, the future of masturbation for some people. The makers of the popular sex toy Fleshlight and tech company Kiiroo have teamed up to create an automated sex toy for men, solving a problem you may not have been aware some people have. The Fleshlight Launch will masturbate for you. The Launch is being called the first ‘fully automated male masturbator’ and that description gives you a pretty solid framework for how this works. The product debuted over the weekend at SXSW and can be used by inserting any existing Fleshlight into the champagne bucket-like device.” — Thrillist.com
“The Fleshlight Launch is the latest breakthrough in [male sex toy] technology. Allowing all existing Fleshlights to be converted into automated blowjob machines is the single largest innovation made by Fleshlight since Destroya. The Fleshlight Launch lives up all the hype of a space age 2017 [male masturbator], and with a long warranty, you can be sure it will be an endless resource of oral sex action. Fleshlight created the living dream of getting blowjobs while you sleep with Fleshlight Launch and it is very exciting to see what they do next and look forward to potential Launch upgrades or new models. With the addition of Kiiroo and FeelMe technology, this blowjob machine goes down in history as a critical turning point for the [male sex toy] world. For our Fleshlight Launch Review, we award this Fleshlight upgrade an overall score of 10/10.” — PocketP*ssyWorld
“In manual mode, in which the Launch does all of the work for you, it can perform up to 180 automated strokes per minute, which, needless to say, is a lot. You can control the position, length and speed of each stroke using the touch-sensitive sliders on either side of the toy — and yes, they have some serious strength to them. In interactive mode, you have the ability to synchronize the Launch with your partner, or incorporate interactive content like videos, virtual reality (VR) and live webcams.
As for the Pearl, it has nine settings for solo play, and in interactive mode, its vibrations can be controlled remotely using the slider buttons on the left side of the Launch. Your partner can use her hands or mouth on the Pearl, as well as insert it vaginally to stimulate her G-spot. (You can, of course, operate both toys at the same time.)
According to Max, once you’ve gotten the Launch set up in your lap, it looks like a mini-robot has swallowed your penis. But then it’s business as usual; the Fleshlight feels indistinguishable from a real vagina and being able to control your partner’s toy allows for more intimacy than your usual long-distance Facetime.” — Playboy
“The machine itself seems well built. The motions feel good (manual mode is boring) and it is about as loud as a quiet inkjet. The battery seems to last a good while. Pairing with the app was easy. Charging is awkward because it won't stand up and the charge port is on the backside of the device.
The control options are good, but unresponsive. Length and speed aren't physical buttons, you sorta slide your finger to control. It is big, but doesn't feel too awkward while in use. Cleanup is easy (compared to the amazing real touch it wins handily there).
This level of customer support just after release makes me wonder about future support. I recommend that anyone interested in this wait until Kiroo fires their web and support teams or people start hacking the device. There are other toys out there that work right now. As I said, this has potential, but until I see some actual videos it is a waste.” — Reddit
- This thing is big and bulky, so you get taken out of the experience trying to maneuver this thing around your junk.
- Since this technology is so new, there aren’t a ton of videos out there, meaning there isn’t much variety with what you watch and feel.
- It’s extremely finicky. I got the “red light of death” on my second try, prompting me to restart the entire system and update the firmware.
- Charging is pretty insane — it takes 6 to 9 hours to boot this thing up.
- The controls aren’t entirely easy to understand and figure out unless you’ve watched the tutorials, which we recommend you do.
- The price of $199.95 is nothing to sneeze at.
