|ICE Crystal texture (Photo: ILF / Fleshlight.com)|
A few months ago, Fleshlight decided to simplify their Ice lineup and developed an exclusive texture for their colorless FL: The Crystal.
The Crystal is a fairly complex texture. Look at the picture and you will see an abundance of sections with nubs, ribs, tight sections, and even a spherical section with nubs. It is impossible to describe, so the best way to understand is by looking at the picture. Now, all these textures promise intensity… if you are long enough.
The main issue with the Crystal is that although it feels good, if you are like me and have a shorter penis, you can see how much you are missing. Yes, you can always fuck the FL from the other side to experience the other textures, but the fact is that you don’t feel the whole experience.
Besides wanting the texture to be more accessible, the other issue with the Crystal is drying this sleeve. It is a busy, narrow texture, so it takes longer to dry. Add the fact that Ice FLs are sticky as hell and you have the problem of the orifice basically closing (sticking to itself), making drying take ages. I had to solve that little annoyance cutting small sections of the shipping rod and sticking that short (1 inch) section into the entrance to keep the air flowing inside the sleeve.
Is it good? Even with the drawbacks mentioned above, the ICE Crystal is a decent sleeve to use with your partner or by yourself. It is an intense texture thanks to it tightness and the various textures inside it, but it is pleasurable. Orgasms with the Crystal are easy to control and they build up fairly gradually. It is not in my Top 5 sleeves, but it is a fun sleeve to use either hands free or as a stroker.
Immediate Feedback: 5/5 You feel the textures at all times – tightness, ribs, nubs, it has them all!
Orgasm Buildup: 4/5
Tear and Wear: 5/5
Value: Medium It is a good sleeve, but the stickiness of the material and the feeling that you are missing part of the texture simply lowers the value of this sleeve.
Preference: Low It is a good sleeve, but not one of my favorites due to the stickiness of the material.
Total score: 35 / 40
FYI: No porn was used for this review. Maybe next one…
