Fleshlights are really great products; they’re some of the most advanced and enjoyable sex toys on the market (read more about how to choose the best Fleshlight). But if there is one thing about them I would change it’s the size - they’re just a little bit too big to be perfect. So, while I am always pleased to try a new texture, I am even more pleased when I get the chance to sample one of the smaller Fleshlight models: the Go Surge.
Fleshlight Go Surge Review
The Fleshlight Go Surge is one of two sleeves in the ‘Go’ Range; the other is the transparent Go Torque (read review). Both sleeves are smaller and lighter versions of the classic flashlight-shaped Fleshlight range; they are lighter and easier to handle but still plenty large enough to accommodate most penises up to 8” (20cm) in length.
Fleshlight Sizes And Why the Go Is Much Smaller
The size is one of my favorite things about the Go Surge so, before we go any further, let’s take a quick look at the measurements.
The outer case of the Go is 8.5" (21.5cm) long - more than an inch shorter than standard Fleshlight case, which measures 9.8" (25 cm).
There is also a significant difference in the width of the two cases. The Go is 2.1" (5.3 cm) wide along its length and 3.1” (8 cm) at the thickest part near the entrance.

In comparison, the width of the full-sized case is 2.4” (6 cm) and 3.7" (9.5 cm). This might not seem like a lot but it makes a big difference when you are trying to handle it ‘in the moment’.
This will be good news to any regular Fleshlight users who have found themselves tiring of the huge cases after a long session. Even better, the difference in the sleeve inside feels minimal: the difference in width is hardly noticeable once you are inside.

Go Surge Sleeve and Texture
The Go Surge comes with the pussy shaped pink Lady opening (the Fleshjack version has a butt orifice). Inside, most of the sleeve is lined with short raised ribs which are set in ‘blocks’ of three. The ribs are set diagonally across the sleeve, and each block points at a 90 degree angle compared to its neighbors.
This texture lines the walls at both ends of the sleeve and is broken up only by a change of texture in the center section. Here, two sets of two large bumps with pointed tips narrow the sleeve on either side of a central constriction, lined with three rings of much smaller bumps.
How the Go Surge Fleshlight Feels
As soon as I entered the Go Surge for the first time I knew it was something special. The crisscross ribs are not really detectable as separate textures but the overall effect is a sort of micro pushing and pulling, leading to a gentle tingling sensation all along my penis. This effect was quite stimulating but I think it was the pointed pressure of the domes in the center which really pushed me over the edge – far more quickly than I had planned!
While the texture is not as varied as some sleeves, the change in the middle of the channel is enough to refresh the sensations; the large bumps add enough variety to make this sleeve interesting (and very, very intense). The suction in this sleeve was also impressive; I would have mixed it up more by tightening and loosening the end cap and changing the length of my thrusts but I was so focused on holding myself back that there really wasn’t time for a lot of thought!
Fleshlight Go Surge Texture
I have tried a lot of Fleshlights and the Go Surge is definitely in my top five favorites. It’s intense without becoming uncomfortable, with subtle but surprisingly stimulating sensations. It’s also small enough that I would have been happy to hold it for far longer than my session lasted.
Cleaning the Go Surge
Apart from the bumps in the center, the texture of the Go Surge is not deep so cleaning it out is not too difficult. I recommend plenty of running water to clear out the middle section; swishing it around will help to remove any trace of residue.
I like to pull a tiny lint free towel through the channel to remove the worst of the moisture before setting it out in a warm spot to air-dry. I usually hang my clean Fleshlights above a baseboard heater where the rising air speeds up the drying. Drying time for the Go Surge is average: allow 2-3 hours and check that it is entirely dry before sealing it back into its case.
Fleshlight Go Surge Review Summary
How I rate Fleshlights explained
The first time I tried the Go Surge I knew that it was going to be one of my favorite ever Fleshlights. Subsequent uses have not changed my opinion. Every time I use it I try to start slow but soon find myself pushed into a howling ("no, not yet!!") orgasm.
It's also worth of noting that the Go series Fleshlights are cheaper than full-sized Fleshlights.
Love the Go Surge? Try one of these too:
The Go Torque sleeve is the same size as the Go Surge and has a transparent texture and sleeve which means that you can watch the action inside. If the bulkiness of a full sized Fleshlight is an issue for you then I would recommend you consider either (or both) of the Go sleeves.
The Flight Pilot is the most intense of the three Flight textures. Its sleek outer case surrounds a very stimulating mini-version of the Stoya Destroya texture (read the Destroya review), with long stemmed bumps and dense ribs. If you like your Fleshlights small and super-intense then this might be worth a look.
Appendix: How Big Is the Fleshlight Go Surge in Comparison to Other Fleshlights?
Fleshlights are usually made with a one-size-fits-all sleeve and an outer case which is almost as big as a wine bottle. It’s hardly surprising that one of the most common feelings expressed in new user’s Fleshlight reviews is astonishment at their size.
The majority of Fleshlight’s huge variety of textured sleeves come in a standard size which, with a sleeve length of 8.9” (22.5cm), is a full inch longer than the Go Surge’s 7.9” (20cm).

Most users manage to handle them well enough and there is little else to dislike about them - Fleshlights really are fantastic products. But one of the most frequent complaints I see about them is that they are just that little bit too big.
Smaller Fleshlight Models
Fleshlight have obviously become aware of the demand for smaller sleeves and have responded with several mini-Fleshlight ranges for their fans to try. In addition to the Go sleeves, there are the open-ended Quickshot and Grip models, the novelty Sex in a Can sleeves, and the sleek Flight designs.
How Does Go Surge Compare with Other Fleshlights?
I really like the smaller size of the Go Surge compared to the standard sleeves. It is nicer to hold and easier to use than the full-sized versions. After trying it, I can also confirm that it feels just as good as any of the full sized sleeves (and a good deal better than many of them).
It also has some advantages over the smaller designs; it is not as tight as the Flight and SIAC sleeves but does provide the full immersive Fleshlight experience, unlike the open ended Grip and Quickshots.
The only shortcoming of the Go Surge (and Go Torque) sleeve size is that they can accommodate only men with penises which measure less than 8" (20 cm). However, the average length of a penis is 4-7" (10-17.5cm), so the size would be more than adequate for the vast majority of men.
Personally, I’d love to see the Fleshlight Go range expand to include some other favorite designs, including some of the Fleshlight Girls sleeves.

Is The Fleshlight Go Suitable For You?
Quite honestly, I would recommend the Go sleeves to almost anyone. They are cheaper than the standard models and the Go Surge is one of the best textures I have tried. But there are a few people who might be happier with one of the other Fleshlight ranges.
Who Should Get the Go?
If your penis size is average (or smaller than average) then you could do a lot worse than either of the Go models. There really is no need the extra length of a full-sized Fleshlight; the average guy will not be able to reach the final inches anyway, and this often means missing out completely on one section of the texture. The Go has a limited range of just two textures, but I would recommend either of them over many of the others I have tested. If you are looking for just one Fleshlight to try, get the Go!
Who Should Consider Other Fleshlights?
Larger guys, if your penis really is 7-8” or above, you might find that the regular length sleeves suit you better. The width of the Go is similar to the standard sleeves so girth should not be an issue (though if your penis is thicker than average then you might want to steer clear of the smaller Flight and SIAC sleeves). See my Fleshlight recommendations for larger guys.
I would also recommend looking at the standard sleeves if you plan to try several textures. You can buy sleeve only inserts which will all fit the same case and save money as you build your collection.
Go Surge vs Standard Fleshlights vs Smaller Fleshlights: How Do the Sizes Compare?
This chart gives an indication of the comparative sizes of all the current Fleshlight ranges.
Internal dimension can vary from sleeve to sleeve but the size of the case does affect how much the flexible SuperSkin can move and ‘give’ as you push through it. I have included my findings in the chart, as measured by an unscientific finger-test.
2.1-3.1" (5.3-8 cm)
2.2-3.1" (5.5-8 cm)
2.6-2.9" (6.5-7.3 cm)
2.4-3.7" (6-9.5 cm)
8.5" (21.5 cm)
7.5-7.8" (19-20 cm)
4.3" (11 cm)
9.8" (25 cm)
1.8-3" (4.5-7.7 cm)
1.8-2.9" (4.5-7.3 cm)
2.5" (6.3 cm)
1.8-3.7" (4.5-9.5 cm)
7.9" (20 cm)
6.9" (17.5 cm)
3.5" (9 cm)
8.9" (22.5 cm)
Comparable to full-sized Fleshlights. Narrower than the Original (0.8" / 2 cm) but slightly wider than the Bookworm (0.55-0.7" / 1.4-1.8 cm).
Quite tight, snug around my index finger. Clearly tighter than the Go Surge. Feels good.
The canal width is close to the Go Surge but the Quickshot feels tighter because of the narrower case. Too tight with the case. Great fun without it.
Lots of variety between different models.
Fleshlight Go vs. Full-Sized Fleshlights
As you can see, the case of the Go is significantly smaller than that of a full-sized Fleshlight. I was expecting a similar difference in the sleeve but when I sat down with several sleeves and a tape measure and started to compare them I was very surprised by what I found. The outer cases might be different, but the dimensions of the sleeve inside are nearly the same.
The Go is 1” (2.5cm) shorter when compared to the standard sleeve (this is still large enough to accommodate most penises). The width is the part which surprised me. The standard sleeve looks a lot wider than the Go when you set them side by side but the biggest difference is actually near the orifice end, where the sleeve bulges to create the distinctive ‘flashlight’ look. This bulge has very little effect on the feel or function of the sleeve; inside the main part of the channel the width is the same.
I checked the tightness inside several sleeves using my finger and found that the Go Surge’s canal is comparable to the full-sized models; it felt a little narrower than the Fleshlight Original, but slightly wider than the Fleshlight Bookworm. Anyone who is looking for a tight sleeve would be wise to consider individual textures, rather than assume that a smaller case equates to a narrower channel.
Fleshlight Go vs. Fleshlight Flight
The Flight case is slightly smaller than the Go Surge. Despite the sleek appearance of the former, the overall width is comparable, though the orifice end is smaller and the inner canal of the Flight feels much snugger around my finger. The length of the Flight is an inch shorter: the inner sleeve measures 6.9" (17.5cm) compared to the Go’s 7.9" (20 cm). Unlike the Go, the Flight is likely to feel too small and tight for some guys.
Fleshlight Go vs. Quickshot
The Quickshot is designed differently to the other models compared here: its sleeve is open ended rather than enclosed so provides a slightly different experience. It is much smaller than the Go or Flight sleeves, at just 4.3" (11 cm) long: great for handling, cleaning and packing to travel. I have tried both Quickshot Fleshlights and enjoyed the novelty of trying something different but, overall, found the case a little too tight for complete enjoyment (but a Quickshot with its case removed can be a lot of fun).
