Inflatable vibrating masturbator

Basic instinct

The instinct is a feature-packed modern masturbation toy for men. Powerful vibrations, strong inflation/suction, heated and sturdy. There's a lot of options to get you off here. It's very stimulating and will keep you satisfied for hours. The sleeve feels good and is removable for cleaning. Very well endowed may find it too snug, however. I wish they offered other sleeve options, like the vagina, anal, mouth, different nubs inside, etc.
Stimulating, multi-function, removable insert, rechargeable, powerful, heated
Tight fit for some; it can get loud.

extremely useful review


I have a lot of experience with Fleshlights, so I was happy to try this similar toy with extra features like heat and suction.

This toy can be used to stroke yourself or can creatively be held in place, stuck between pillows, mattresses, or however you choose to mount it and thrust it into for a more realistic "hands-free" experience. Alternately, a partner can do the stroking or hold it between their legs for simulated safe sex.

This toy is best for the horny single man (me) and is good for any day of the week.

As I've discovered with a handful or more uses, this toy is powerful enough just to lie back and let it do the work, as you'll see below.

Material / Texture

The toy itself was very hefty. Heavier than I expected. It feels solid. The body is plastic but coated in a soft velvety rubber-type material that helps with grip and is curved and shaped to be ergonomic. The inside sleeve is soft, plush, and stretchy, with nubs inside to stimulate the penis. It's only about 4" deep but does stretch when you push into it harder and snugs around your head. It is removable for cleaning. I detected no noticeable odors. It's not as realistic and soft as a fleshlight, but not too far behind.

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The overall design is good. If I could change anything, it would be to make the buttons clearer to read. There are 4 buttons, and it's not immediately clear what is what. Maybe if they were different colors, it would be more obvious, but that's a minor point, as once you've used it, you will remember which is which. They do light up when activated, so you can see them in the dark, which is great.

The overall size of the toys is fine. However, the shaft, for me personally, is on the tight side. I wish it were wider, especially since the inflation feature makes it even tighter. This seems to be a bit of an oversight for the thicker/larger endowed. I'm a little thicker than the average man and find it a bit of a challenge to insert all the way, and the tightening only makes this more difficult. What a shame, because this is a really cool toy I was looking forward to trying. That said, it does make me cum pretty easily.

It creates a lot of suction because there is nowhere for the air to escape, so it takes a little bit of effort to remove your penis once fully inserted. In doing so, you get some squishy queef-like sounds.

This would be up to you as far as travel goes. It's heavy and not discreet, but if you put it in a checked bag, I wouldn't worry about it. It's bulky and heavy for a carry-on item, besides not being discreet.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The vibrations are well felt throughout the toy. Even at a low setting, it's very stimulating. The toy makes some noise, but it's not overly loud at low settings unless you have people in close proximity behind a door. I tried resting it between pillows and thrusting into it, and this amplifies the noise quite a bit. Using it by hand is comparably quieter. It's significantly louder when empty. Your penis helps muffle it, but once you turn this up to high and suction on, it gets pretty loud like you're using a low-speed palm sander.

The inflation feature is another great feature, especially if you like tightness. Those well endowed may find it less useful. Then there is the heated feature, which helps add to the realism. This toy really packs a lot of features into one.

Overall this is a very stimulating toy. Quite a difference from your standard fleshlight or masturbator. I believe this will satisfy most guys.

Personal comments

This is a 5-star toy, but for me personally, I'm dinging one star for being tight. I wish they offered different options for the sleeve. They could have a realistic fake vagina, different style labia, anus, mouth, etc. If it were deeper, I would see if one of my fleshlight sleeves could fit inside this to improve the fit, but you would have to cut half the shaft off. I do have an old one; perhaps I'll try that at a later date.

There's nothing not to like about this toy apart from the tightness. When I use fleshlight, I remove the end cap because it makes it feel better for me. The air can push out, and it glides better and stays wetter longer. I know others prefer the caps on, but I just find it better without.

Herein lies another reason it may feel tighter too. There is no option to release air at the end, but this would probably not be necessary if the hole were wider.

That said, after several uses, I'm getting used to it. It can make me cum pretty fast, but I just can't really thrust or stroke it for a little bit, but I do get fully inserted, albeit snuggly.

I think most guys would find this great, unless you are super thickly well-endowed.


Personally, I found just inserting my cock and letting the vibrations do the work has been best. At first, I tried stroking and thrusting in/out, but it was a bit difficult and would cause some loss of erection from the tightness factor as if it was pushing the blood right out of me.

But if I just park myself inside and maybe wiggle a bit in different directions, I get a pretty satisfying experience and can cum within 5 or so minutes. I will leave the thrusting to the fleshlight and lie back and enjoy this like a BJ.

The vibrations are very strong and can get pretty loud (esp if the tunnel is empty) at full blast. Definitely the loudest toy I've ever owned. I came last night, and this is pretty fast for my second and third uses in 2 days.

I've been using this every day so far, and this will become part of my regular routine.
