There are very few moments in a man’s life that are as embarrassing and emasculating as cumming too quickly, leaving your partner either disappointed or assuring you “it’s ok…” like you are a wounded puppy. A quick search on the Internet will turn up many enticing seeming solutions, from numbing agents to cock rings, however most of these have some downside. The best, and least invasive option is stamina training. It’s not the quickest solution, but it will leave you the most prepared when the moment strikes. And it is with that in mind that Fleshlight has thrown its hat into the ring with the Fleshlight Stamina Training Unit (STU).
For all intents and purposes the STU is a Fleshlight (which is great) and you can ready my previous review of another Fleshlight here. Everything from my first review applies here, the main difference for the STU is the internal texture. It’s a much simpler studded texture, as opposed to the swirls and ridges of the previous model I reviewed. Interestingly, I found this to be a much more natural feeling and intense sensation. In this sense I understand why they would market this as the STU since I felt it more closely represented the feeling of a real partner.
The packaging for the STU claims that if you can last 10 minutes with the STU you can last 20 minutes with ANYONE!. Thats a pretty tall claim, so of course I was curious, does it actually work? Well my short, and disappointing answer is the jury is still out. I spent some time trying to time myself (no joke) with the Fleshlight to see if I was making any headway, but there were so many variables to it, it was really hard to discern notable improvements. There were days I was tired, or not very aroused. Sometimes I would watch porn sometimes I wouldn’t. Somedays I just didn’t have the will to try and last as long as I possibly could because, well, I wanted to get off. Other times I tried to last long and ended up losing interest in the Fleshlight entirely. These variables affected how long I lasted, I felt, more than the Fleshlight did.
Ultimately I have had a hard time writing this review because I found myself asking a lot of questions. Is feeling the only thing that contributes to stamina? What about the self control and discipline stamina training takes? What about the excitement of the shared sexual experience with another person? Is Fleshlight claiming that their product feels better than a live partner? By the time it came to put words to paper, I was having a borderline existential crisis. In the end though, the STU is definitely a more intense textured Fleshlight, and given more time perhaps I would have noticed greater strides in longevity. But it is still a Fleshlight, which is still pretty great.
