The Vortex design first appeared in 2008 as part of a blue ‘Alien’ Fleshlight sleeve. It proved so popular that it was re-released in a (less weird) pink version. The sleeve is now available with a choice of mouth, butt and pussy orifices and continues to be a popular choice among Fleshlight buyers.
The Vortex crops up again and again in recommendations and favorites lists. I had even heard it described as ‘like having sex for the very first time (again)’ so was very eager to try it.
NOTE: The Vortex appears to been discontinued (Feb. 2019). Check out the following recommended realistic Fleshlight instead.
THE MOST REALISTIC FLESHLIGHT:
Fleshlight Vortex Review
Sleeve and Texture
The Vortex is a full-sized Fleshlight and its uniform texture doesn’t look too exciting next to many of the fancier Fleshlight sleeves. But looks can be deceiving!
The inside of the sleeve consists of a series of ‘chambers’ as the walls widen and narrow in a wave pattern along the length. The texture comes from spiraling ridges which provides a zig-zag ribbed effect, swirling around the inside of the sleeve. The whole combination provides a surprising amount of grip and quite strong suction.
How does Vortex feel?
I soon discovered that there is a very good reason for the popularity of the Vortex: it feels amazing!
The entrance is quite tight and grips the head of your penis nicely and the waved shape of the walls means the pressure changes as you slide in and out of the sleeve. This increasing and decreasing pressure feels fantastic.
The ribbed texture stimulates you from all sides at once without being overpowering. It feels as if it encloses the penis from all directions. It’s not overly intense but you can definitely feel the effects as you move and twist it.
Fleshlight Vortex Texture
The whole thing feels quite realistic. That might sound odd, given the ridges along the inside, but the feel of them is not obvious enough to spoil the effect. The texture is gentle but very pleasurable and the smooth soft material adds to the realistic feel of it.
Something about the design, perhaps the four ‘chambers’ that open out along the length, means that the suction is also amazing. Overall, I’d describe the sensation of using it as medium-intense. It has a relentless squeezing and swirling action which never lets up.
The lube is held quite well by the ridges, meaning that you don’t need to use much.
The texture also means that good cleaning is essential to make sure any lube or sperm residue is removed properly. A really good rinse through, with plenty of water, and adequate drying time should do it.
How I rate Fleshlights explained
The Vortex aims for realism and I would say it’s nailed it. It’s intensity is in the middle of the pack but somehow the ridges in the texture massage the head of penis in such a subtle and pleasurable way that I cannot last long with the Vortex.
Love the Vortex? Why Not Try Other Similar Fleshlights?
If you like the Vortex and would like to try a similar texture, the following share similar characteristics:
- Fleshlight Freaks Alien is a bright blue sleeve with an ‘alien’ inner design that begins with a ‘Vortex’ style canal. Realistic in feel, if not in appearance! Misty Stone Bump N Grind is another good sleeve incorporating a zigzag texture.
- Other great realistic Fleshlight options are: Vortex, Lotus, and Christy Mack Attack sleeves.
- If the undulating walls made you feel heavenly, check the reviews for Angela White Indulge, Teagan Presley Bulletproof, and Asa Akira Dragon.
