Fleshlights are great on their own, but there are ways to kick the experience into high gear by increasing the tightness of the sleeve when you use it, especially if you find yours lacking grip.

Watch our video below to check them out:

Key Takeaways:

  • How tight a Fleshlight feels during use ultimately depends on the size of the sleeve’s canal in relation to your penis size.
  • Although some Fleshlights, particularly those of the anal variety like the Mia Malkova Boss Level, feature a slimmer fit and tighter canal, you may find yours isn’t getting the job done and there are easy ways to make it fit more snugly around your penis.
  • Ways to tighten your Fleshlight include adjusting the suction cap at the bottom of the case, applying rubber bands or hair ties around the sleeve, stuffing the case with (clean) sponges, or squeezing the sleeve with your bare hands during use.

Sometimes your penis just needs a great big hug and there are a myriad of ways to get the most squeeze from your Fleshlight sleeve.

We’ll show you some quick and easy ways to make your Fleshlight tighter and feel better when you use it, along with expert advice on the tightest ones to try.

Ways To Make Your Fleshlight Tighter

Fleshlights are available for purchase in a variety of models and styles but they don’t fit every penis equally.

Fleshlights are designed with many different canal sizes and textures, and the girth of your penis in relation to the sleeve’s existing diameter will affect how tightly it fits — or doesn’t.

If you’ve purchased a Fleshlight, used it for the first time, and discovered that it’s not as snug as you’d like (or need), there are some easy ways to tighten the sleeve to make it feel better.

Ways to tighten a Fleshlight include:

  • Adjusting the end cap at the bottom of the case
  • Applying rubber bands or hair ties at various areas along the sleeve
  • Stuffing the case with clean sponges
  • Using the sleeve with your hands to adjust the tightness manually

We’ll cover simple ways to make your Fleshlight tighter with easy-to-find materials you probably have at home right now.

Tighten The Casing End Cap

The screwcap on the end of your Fleshlight’s casing is meant to control airflow.

The tighter it is, the more suction you’ll feel and the tightness will naturally increase as you thrust in and out of the Fleshlight.

As you pull out while stroking or thrusting, a vacuum is created inside — which pulls the walls of the sleeve in.

Any Fleshlight that has a case can be adjusted in this manner, quickly and easily, to tighten the sleeve and improve the sensation.

Use Rubber Bands Or Hair Ties

Rubber bands, or something similar like hair ties, can be wrapped around the Fleshlight sleeve for some extra snugness wherever you desire it.

They’re easy to use and you likely have some at home right now.

To tighten your Fleshlight in this manner:

  • Remove the sleeve from its case
  • Add your desired amount of bands along the sleeve wherever you want to increase the snugness
  • Place the sleeve back inside the case when you’re done

If you seek a tighter fit at the opening, a hair tie can be wrapped just below the part of the orifice that sticks out of the Fleshlight case.

Stuff The Fleshlight Case With Sponges

Stuffing the inside of your Fleshlight’s plastic case with something soft like a sponge will increase the tightness a fair amount, wherever you need it.

You can cut an unused kitchen sponge or something similar to fit inside well enough to not need constant readjusting.

One genius Reddit user suggests cutting your sponge into long strips that measure 4.25″ L x 1″ W x 0.5″ H.

This method can require a bit of fiddling and some trial and error, but the results will be worth the effort.

My best advice is to put your sleeve inside the case, remove the bottom cap, and stuff the sponges up into the case through the bottom.

After doing this myself, I can attest it’s the easiest way to get the sponges in there (and to stay where you want them to be).

Use Your Bare Hands

This method is simple but it gives you the most control over how tight you want your Fleshlight to be.

Just remove the sleeve from the plastic case and hold it with your hands during use.

You can squeeze as much or as little as you want and change up your grip to simulate the natural contractions a partner might have.

To be fair, it might look like you’re playing the world’s strangest bagpipe — and it’s not the sexiest sight you’ll ever see in your life — but this method certainly gets the job done.
