The Flashlight is a brand of sex toys designed for penetration and marketed primarily to heterosexual men. The Masturbator is designed and marketed by Interactive Life Forms (ILF).
The Masturbator is named for the flesh-like material used in its inner sleeve, as well as the plastic case that houses the sleeve, which is fashioned to look like an oversized flashlight.
The inner sleeve is available with vulva, anus, and mouth orifices.
The inner sleeves come in colors of flesh (from a variety of ethnicities) and ice/crystal (see-through), as well as a limited edition blue color for an Avatar-like look, and 48 different internal textures(6 original, 19 girls, 10 special, 5 Sex-in-a-Can and 12 boys textures). The Masturbator was designed by Steve Shubin.
He was granted a patent in 1998 for his invention, as a "device for discreet sperm collection".
It was also designed to be a safer alternative to real sex, considering STDs and pregnancy.
