If you’ve been thinking to yourself that realistic vaginas could be your key to a fortune, just before you start taking pictures of your wife or girlfriend’s pussy in several different positions and drawing up the blueprints, just bear in mind that one guy is well ahead of you. His name is Steve Shubin, and he’s the inventor of the best selling sex toy in the world, the Fleshlight.

The world’s best selling realistic vaginas

Steve Shubin’s struggles to produce the most realistic, most enjoyable male sex toy vagina have become the stuff of industry legend. A former SWAT team member, he was told by his wife’s doctors that for medical reasons he would need to abstain from sex during her pregnancy. Nine months was too long a wait, so he started work on a sex toy that would offer him instant relief. Only in the end, it wasn’t so instant.

Shubin spent months working on designs of the upper torso of a woman and experimenting with various types of rubber vaginas. Just as he was about to start marketing his product he called a trusted friend to ask if he would try it out. The guy was willing to do so and Shubin said he would drop the toy round to his home. The friend instantly protested ‘No, for God’s sake don’t bring it here Steve, my wife will kill me!’

This immediately, and quite rightly, sent alarm bells ringing in Shubin’s mind. If his best friend was too embarrassed to be seen with his new toy that must mean every other guy would be too. After hundreds of thousands of dollars and thousands of man hours it was time for a radical rethink. He needed a toy that offered all the pleasure of full sex, but was discreet, easy to hide and not at all obvious as to its real purpose.

On a car drive from the airport to his home he had the flash of genius that created the Fleshlight. Like many great ideas it was simple and it all came together faster than most guys come inside their Fleshlight. He formed the idea of the soft inner sleeve disguised by what appeared to be an innocent looking flashlight – that’s it – the Fleshlight! The name and the idea caught on almost immediately. Since the introduction of the first sleeve Fleshlight have gone on to produce several more textures, and now a line-up of some of the top talent in the porn business have donated molds of their privates for their profit and the pleasure of millions of men thoughout the Western world.

The Fleshlight today is the best selling of all fake pussy toys and so far no one has devised anything to beat it.
