Rubber Pussy Project #149: Chinese Bootleg – The Fake STU

One of the perks of buying shit on E-bay is their e-bucks program. Every 3 months they give you a certificate based on the money spent on the website – and every 3 months  I get between $10 and $20 in those “e-bucks”. Last time, I got about $50 of them and having nothing better to buy, I got three Chinese knock-offs of popular sex toys. This is the first of the three toys I got: A copy of the Fleshlight Stamina Training Unit or STU.

First Impressions

A copy is a copy…

For the uninitiated, the “Desire Cup” could pass as a premium Fleshlight product. It has the same concept, the same size, a golden case, and even an integrated shower mount! For about $20, this is a bargain! Why pay $90 for a Fleshlight with a shower mount when you can get the same for just $20?

Well, because it is NOT the same toy…

The Desire Cup can look almost the same, but when you get a few minutes with it, you quickly realize it is a fake. The case feels thinner than the original Fleshlight, and the sleeve’s TPE is harder than the Fleshie version. The interior texture is almost identical, having big rounded bumps close to each other instead of the almost conical pillows of the Original STU. The shower mount is a cheap one, having problems to hold the whole toy in place during use, specially when mounted on a vertical surface.

All in all, you can notice this is a copy of a superior product, but the copy still has a few inviting qualities. First, the sleeve does not have any awful chemical / rubber smell, just a faint scent common to TPE. Second, the sleeve is not sticky, even when it does not appear been powdered. The case bottom is tightly twisted in position, so lube will not spill like crazy and when fingered, (I always finger my toys), it felt pretty decent. It seemed  . I was going to have some fun with developing some “desire”… Chinese style!

Review

So, I lubed the Chinese STU and tested it… and have to say it is pretty good for the price. Of course, if you compare it to the STU, the knock-off cannot compete on the same league. The sleeve feels a lot harder than expected, but the texture is not as intense as the STU or even the Speed Bump. The texture feels nice once lubed and on its own, it is a decent toy. The orgasms with the C-STU were pretty intense, although nothing out of this world.

The low quality of the toy became apparent when the entrance orifice developed a massive tear. It is still usable, but none of my Fleshlights had ever ripped like that…

Cleaning the toy is very easy – just like a Fleshlight.

Verdict:

The toy is an evident copy of a Fleshlight, but this sleeve is a decent toy on its own for the price.
