As I mentioned in my last post, I almost discarded this Sex In A Can (SIAC) because I didn’t like how it felt. The issue was the Vortex texture: It has a longer break-in period than any other texture, so the first 5 to 12 sessions won’t feel as good as they should. After the number of sessions, I began to feel the texture and I’m glad I kept this SIAC… especially since ILF discontinued its production in April of 2010.
As you can see in the accompanying photo (courtesy from www.fleshjack.com.tw), the Spread Eagle main characteristic was the pussy mold. The orifice was a pussy with big lips, unlike the typical Fleshlight / SIAC lady orifice which is a thin, “younger” looking orifice. Inside, you encountered a scaled down version of the Vortex texture with the same variation in diameter but made more intense thanks to the SIAC’s reduced scale. What I expected the first time I saw this texture? I expected a visit to heaven… and I can say I’ve been there a few times since breaking this texture.
Intensity (5 / 5)
As with its bigger “sister”, the mini Vortex is intense, but not overwhelmingly. Just like the full size version, it provides immediate feedback, but here the innate tightness of the SIACs make the texture much more present – even when removing the endcap completely. Pleasure hits you hard after a few minutes of use and keeps you on the edge for minutes before you have no other option that surrender to a toe-curling orgasm. Just take the orgasms with the Vortex and multiply the intensity by three…
As all SIACs, the Spread Eagle is tight. Unlike the Lotus Lager, the mini vortex didn’t require to be fully erected to use it. Once you are 3/4 erect you can penetrate the Eagle and after a few short strokes you will be steel hard. One thing I found during use was that using the top cap on the cap on the bottom gives a suction perfect for stroking and fucking unlike the shorter end cap that creates a vacuum effect when fully tightened.
Using the mini Vortex is like penetrating a young, inexperienced woman in her early 20’s. Everything I wrote about the Vortex in this category applies to its mini version with the exception of the suction. To feel like vaginal sex, you need to remove the end cap completely. To replicate oral sex, I had to use the larger cap with only 1/4 tightened in. Any more tightening, and the SIAC risks becoming a vise on the penis. Again, 4 out of 5 in realism.
As its larger sister, the Spread Eagle is a versatile sleeve: it can be used hands free, is a perfect stroker giving a range of realistic sensations, and you can pound it hard either way without problems. If you want longer sessions, add a thicker lube (or “over lube”) and don’t use the end cap at all. If intensity is the name of the game, use a thinner lube and use the sleeve with the larger end cap about half tightened.
Lubricant use (5/5)
The min Vortex retains lube perfectly, especially for short to mid length sessions (20 – 45 minutes). Again, depending on the sensations I wanted to experience, I added more lube to replicate one thing or another but the sleeve was good with the standard original quantity of lube.
The only complain I have about the Vortex is the long “break-in” period. If the sleeve had a lower “break-in” curve, it would be perfect.
Hygiene (5 / 5)
As most Fleshlights, just place it under the faucet and flush between 30 and 60 seconds on both ends with running water. Not too difficult to clean.
The mini Vortex dried pretty well overnight. It is good to mention that with the current colder weather, the sleeves takes more to dry, since air is colder and my apartment tends to remain humid during the day. That is until my landlord begins to provide steam later in the season.
Maintenance (5 / 5)
No special maintenance required for long term storage besides some corn starch.
Tear and wear (5/5)
No tear and wear noticed after completing the evaluation periods.
Total score: 48 / 50
From almost trashed to one of the best sleeves. It is a shame that ILF decided to stop doing this SIAC, but I believe this is not the last time it is going to be offered. Hopefully ILF make it available in the future as a special edition or as part of a combo texture.
As established in the captions, you could buy this toy from Fleshlight.com.
