Marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, and Craigslist are packed with fraudulent goods. Intentionally or not, many third-party sellers are marketing knock-offs.
A $300 name brand watch might actually be a crappy counterfeit that will break within weeks. Or a designer T-shirt might really be a poor imitation.
To make a long story short, there’s a fake version of everything.
Fleshlights are no different. Many sellers are hawking bogus products. These are generally poor quality and can often be hazardous to your health. Spare your wallet and your body from the pain of buying a knock-off.
Fakes Sex Toy Risks
Most imitations are made in Chinese sweatshops. The quality is hit or miss. Many of these factories have few regulations and there aren’t many government agencies to enforce safe production guidelines.
As a result, anything goes. If you’ve never been to Asia this may sound silly, but it’s true. There is no organization like the FDA or Consumer Reports to keep businesses in check.
While on a trip through South East Asia, I almost died after being exposed to unsafe chemicals that had used as “flavor enhancers” at a local restaurant. While I don’t know how dangerous a fake Fleshlight would be, I can’t imagine that it would be healthy to use. There’s a good chance that you’ll be exposing yourself to some sort of toxic substance.
Even if you don’t get sick, there are still other problems to deal with. Knock-offs are cheaply made and break easily. This means you’re spending as much as you would on a Fleshlight, but are getting something that’s a poorly made piece of crap.
If you’re paying full price for a toy, you might as well get your money’s worth. Right?
How To Spot A Fake Fleshlight
On sites like Amazon and eBay, the most obvious knock-offs are the ones that look off. Their cases are weirdly shaped, the masturbators themselves look strange, and there’s just sort of a cheap vibe to them.
Additionally, many of this units will use “like” or “type” in their product description. When you run into a product described as a “Fleshlight Like Sex Toy,” you know it’s poor quality. Close your wallet and run away.
Lastly, there’s a more subtle trick that many counterfeiters use. One that the majority of people won’t pick up on. They sell through a third-party.
While some third-party sellers are legitimate, many of them are marketing dubious products. If you have the option between buying an official Fleshlight from the company that makes them or ordering one through a no-name retailer, I think you know which is the better choice.

When you want to buy a legitimate Fleshlight on Amazon, order through the “ILF, LLC – Official Store.” You’ll see this information right above the “Buy It Now” and “Add To Cart” buttons. I’ve even highlighted this location on the image below:

If you’re nervous about discretion, I can assure you that your toy comes in an incredibly nondescript box. I’ve purchased through Amazon quite a bit and they’ve always done a great job keeping my orders private.

Fleshlight.com Vs. Amazon.com
There is some debate as to whether buyers should order from Amazon or the official Fleshlight website. While both are discreet, I do think that Amazon is a better option if you are really worried about people discovering your order. If you live at home or have roommates, no one is going to question an Amazon box arriving.

With that said, Fleshlight offers some amazing deals and discounts whenever you order through their websites. It’s common for you to see 25% off discounts, buy two get one free specials, and other stuff like that. If you don’t live with super prying parents do yourself a favor and order directly through them. You’ll get a lot of cool deals that way.

Even though there are a lot of fakes and frauds out there, you can still get your hands on an official Fleshlight with relative ease. When shopping around Amazon, look for “ILF, LLC – Official Store” label. If you see this, it’s an authentic Fleshlight. Otherwise there’s a good chance you’re dealing with a knock-off.
Lastly, if you really want to make sure that you’re getting the real deal, order directly from Fleshlight.com. You’ll get the Fleshlight you want, plus there’s a good chance that you’ll get a special discount or extra bonus too.
