Review

gauntlet

The Gauntlet was one of the first multi-textured Fleshlights: a toy with different textures along the canal. At introduction, it had what you could called a greatest hits of textures inside the sleeve.

The Gauntlet combines the micro ribs found on the Forbidden, the "teeth" from the Swallow, the inverted node of the Lotus, the Fangs from the Succu-Dry, and last but not least, the pillows from the STU. All these textures are considered pretty much intense, and the idea of combining them in a single sleeve was to provide the most intense FLG at the moment. Unfortunately, it fails to provide that level of intensity - unless your penis is longer than 7 inches.

With a 5 inch long penis, I reach part of the Fang texture, a texture that is extremely pleasurable, but is intense only when close to orgasm. Even with that drawback, the Gauntlet gives a good ride. The "teeth" and the slight resistance of the inverted node provide immediate feedback and it continues increasing until you are surprised by fangs. The Fang texture feels soft at first, but stroking or thrusting slowly they really feel sharp, "biting" your penis (in my case, the head of my penis received those bites).

Orgasms were the most vocal I had since starting the RPP, making me grunt loudly when using it hands free. It is intense, but something tells me that I would have felt more intense orgasms if the texture allowed me to enjoy all the sensations offered by it. The Gauntlet is tight enough to satisfy most users because the entrance is tighter than expected thanks to the micro ribs. Unfortunately, the FLG case doesn't provide enough suction to make this FLG shine as a cum drainer.

This texture was not designed to simulate real sex, and the texture lets you know that fact from the start. Whatever points it loses on realism, the Gauntlet recovers them when it allows you to feel different sensations based on how you use it in terms of method, position, end cap placement and angle. It is an extremely versatile texture highly recommended for hands free sessions.

This sleeve retains lube pretty well, and in my opinion, the more lube you use, the better the Gauntlet feels. To keep full enjoyment of the texture, I had to re-lube twice during sessions lasting 30 minutes or more (longest session was a two-hours hands free with various edging rests).

Like all Fleshlights, the Gauntlet is pretty easy to clean - just open a faucet with cold or warm water and allow the running water to flush the interior. Since all fleshlights are open ended sleeves, running water through them between 1 and 2 minutes is more than enough to clean them. Adding some alcohol after each use helps to avoid any mold or fungi to develop inside the canal. It usually dries completely after leaving it overnight on the open.rs or noticeable wear observed after the weekly sessions.

The Gauntlet texture is a good buy for anyone looking for a texture that builds up in intensity until reaching the orgasm. If you are looking for a texture to enjoy sessions between 20 and 60 minutes, the Gauntlet is a texture you should consider.
