    Hello folks. I had a swift search for this info but to no avail.

    I bought a new fleshlight, to give them a second chance and see if the newer ones were more enjoyable and it has a strange industrial whiff about it. The one I bought ages ago hasn't got this odour. I gave it a wash and so on, but the smell persists.

    Just wondering if anyone else on here has had fleshlights from lovehoney and if they have had a chemically/industrial smell how to get rid of it or is it just part of the experience? Maybe all the fleshlights have this odour - I will need to find my old one and double check in case I am imagining the no-odour-ness of it.

    ta for any info you may have!

    Could it be the model? Differing colours or something? I know with the clone things the coloured bit stinks a bit, anything drastically different?

    I honsestly can't remember if mine smelled, I didn't give it much time as I haven't been too impressed.

    the original one was a bog standard one, this was a fleshlight girls one, the container thingy was a different colour but the insert is similar colour.

    Quite bizarre. If you do come across yours (no pun intended) give it a sniff for us will you WandA?

    I'm all tenga'd up already, but the new fleshlights look so tempting I wanted to give one a go!

    Patch test? Give it a fingering first and if you don't get a rash then have a go!

    The new flesh colour ones do have a bit of an odour, nothing major. It dies down after a few washes but I do recall it being a rather prominent smell to begin with. Out of curiosity what one did you go for?

    I have sniffed Lupe Fuentes' butt and can confirm that there is a light odour, but nothing offensive. ;-)

    I have it and I recommend not judging it until after a few uses as it seems to take a small amount of adjusting to the feel of it before things really click. Plus by then the smell will be mainly gone, looking forward to my two Sex In A Can fleshies that arrive tomorrow morning. :)

    Righto, checked the original one, there was a subtle smell, hopefully this one will fade over time.

    Gave it a whirl and the difference between this and the 'boring' one is light night and day!

    I think tenga still wins, but the competition is hotting up!

    The smaller sex in a can models are also rather great. Was testing my two new ones today and it was rather satisfying. :)

    The tenga stuff is awesome! I have a Fleshlight can and the material does have a noticeable smell! That kind of thing is inevitable i guess!

    i'm proper excited about a design i have made for a new blokes toy but i'm torn between whether or not i should 1)Wait for the next LH competition and see if it's any good or 2)Get a company to look at the idea and see if it's worth getting a patent and losing the chance to enter the LH comp! Obv by then the idea could have been done by someone else so it's risky either way!

    Now would be a good time to be rich...lol

    but anyway, i really wanna get my hands on a tenga fliphole and see if they are as good as i think they are! The eggs are great but just a bit too small i reckon!

    thanks all, I've.. er.. 'invested' in tons of the things now - the new ones are really quite a lot better than the original ones! Tenga better get their thinking caps on or I might have to change allegiance!

    I'm really loving the Sex in a Can Forbidden and Swallow. The Swallow texture especially, it's a struggle to last for any significant time with it. I hope they release more of the new textures in the can format as it seems to be the measured to fit perfectly and is a lot easier to store than their larger counterparts.
