You sure got a purdy mouth...

If you've seen my past reviews of the Tenga products, you know how much of a fan I am of their stuff. Not only do they have some premium toys, they also feature some cheaper alternatives for those who want to test the waters. Babeland offered up this awesome masturbation sleeve from Fleshlight and I had to try them out. The Succu Dry is the Sex in a Can model, a smaller version of the bulky fleshlights. It also comes with a smaller price tag. Normal fleshlights run $70-$90 while this amazing piece of work is only $50. Still a bit pricey compared to the sample versions Tenga makes, however, the Tenga Eggs and Onacups are meant to be used once while this blowjob simulator is made of some quality stuff and can be used over and over as long as it's well maintained and cleaned properly.

The Succu Dry is a little over 7 inches tall and for all the world looks like a giant can of beer. The can itself is made of plastic, the sleeve from Fleshlight's patented superskin. The entry point on the sleeve is a pair of succulent looking lips punctuated by pointy vampire teeth. Don't worry, she doesn't bite. On the contrary, she sucks (in a very, very good way). The material is amazing, so soft and smooth. The inside of the sleeve has little nubs (about a quarter of an inch high) throughout the entire length. As wonderful as the superskin feels, it is just one of the great things about this toy.

The name says everything. This toy is all about suction. The cap on the bottom (top when in use) can be unscrewed to adjust the suction of the sleeve. Completely tightened, it is sometimes difficult to enter and I suggest opening it at least halfway to make this a little easier. You'll want to use plenty of lube (water-based only) regardless. After you are firmly inside, tighten the cap all the way and try some slow stroking. I find the most stimulation from completely closed to about a one full turn on the cap. Afterwards, the suction drops significantly. It still feels great, but the way the suction pulls and slides the skin of your penis and slips over the tip is just not the same at that point. Sometimes when you get the suction just right, the way the air slips through the toy causes the material to vibrate slightly and just adds that much more to the experience. Find what works for you and enjoy. The texture is soft and smooth and with the right amount of suction it feels amazing sliding up and down your cock. Like most masturbation sleeves I've used, during my orgasm the textures are just too intense and I can't use the sleeve, basically waiting for the head of my penis to desensitize. That's really the only gripe I have with the toy at all, but it's consistent with any sleeve-type masturbator from my experience.

The material holds up well, I've used my fleshlight about five times now and notice no signs of wear after multiple cleanings. This is one area where the fleshlight can be slightly more demanding. To clean your Sex in a Can, you have to remove the liner and rinse it out by turning it partly inside out. Use warm water and rinse away all the lube and cum (don't use any cleaners or soaps as it may damage your toy!). Afterwards, I normally pat dry with a towel and leave it to finish drying on a towel rack or something similar. Make sure it is COMPLETELY dry before putting it back into it's case. The last thing you want is mildew in your sex toy.

After all is said and done, I'm torn. The fleshlight is not better than my Tenga products, but it is not worse either. I would say they are different sides to a badass coin with two heads. You are bound to win either way.  The material, texture, and most notably, the suction of the Succu Dry make it a great choice for a masturbation sleeve and at half the cost of the Tenga Fliphole... it certainly does have its perks.
