Male Masturbator Test 2022: Lelo F1S V2
For too long, sex toys for men have been the poor and forgotten cousin of the glittering display of wonders aimed at women. Amazing, I know, that an industry prioritizes the pleasure of women over men. Shocking, in fact, that for so long women have been offered never-before-seen ways to reach dizzying new heights of personal pleasure while us men sit idly by. And so in Sweden (where else?), where the tables are turning.
Sound the horn of equality! Swedish sex tech pioneers Lelo have created a buzz with their vibrating sex sheath that claims to revolutionize men’s me time. Lelo’s F1S V2 tastefully invites you to ditch the trusty five-knuckle mix in favor of SenSonic Wave technology, simulating an eager mouth and throat that pulsates and ripples like a giddy belly dancer.
So roll, roll, penis-providing friends, as we shiver and jerk through a blow-by-blow review of the sleekest premium sex toy on the block, and follow me into its skin-safe silicone interiors. …
What is the Lelo F1S V2?
According to Lelo, the F1S V2 is “a rare type of penis stimulator”. To be fair, I was called the worst. In line with the Fleshlight and the stroker, the F1S V2 is a “vibrating sleeve for male masturbation”. A round of handjob, then. And then ? A nursing hood, perhaps? Rubbing mitts?
Kidding aside, Lelo created the F1S V2 to simulate oral sex and incorporated twin turbocharged motors, patented technology and advanced materials for a sophisticated, understated look with the power of a jackhammer. And I’m here for that.
F1S V2 first impressions
The F1S V2 arrives in a stark, sleek and expensive black box with no frills and no fuss.
The compact and lightweight 6-inch Alexa-style tube with its beveled edges and futuristic metal details is small enough to throw in your carry-on and it looks like a Bluetooth speaker, so if your mom pops up, you can. leave the kitchen table on without fear of awkward questions.
There’s a window on one side, so you can peer into the sci-fi innards and see the exterior of the smooth blue (or red, sports car fans!) silicone sleeve. It even lights up from within when in use, so it could serve as a light source in the event of an energy crisis.
Now, I may have tried one or two other sex toys, and compared to similar products that ostensibly lovingly recreate oral sex, the F1S V2 looks promising. It’s not a masturbator – you don’t move it up and down your meat, like the Arcwave Ion with its “Pleasure Air” jerking technology, or a Blowmotion masturbator. It doesn’t do anything drastically different – reader, you put your dick in it – but the idea is that it does everything work, so you can rest your wrists and let the internal motors rock your boat.
At the open end there is no crude simulacrum of full, parted lips; simply a wide entrance that narrows into a tunnel – the mouth and throat, if you will. Everything inside is soft, ribbed silicone, all the soft hills and seductive crevices promising to move in an organic way that massages your wang like you’ve just presented him with a diamond ring.
Before you roll up your sleeves and become a rhythm sleeve, you turn on your handjob sleeve.
You’ll need copious amounts of your favorite lube – and I mean plenty. To be generous. The F1S V2 is not spacious. For a realistic feel, the brand has kept it tight, and you’ll need lush lubrication to park this Big Mack Truck in that little garage. Press the power button and the lights on top turn on. The more power you add by pressing the + button, the brighter the lights, allowing you to gauge how much power you want.
Once you’ve confirmed consent, you can treat it as if it were the minors and you were Maggie Thatcher, but beware of the great responsibility that comes with great power. Lelo gave this little bombshell some major engines, and that’s no joke. If you’re more of a Debbie does damage than Debbie does Dallas, turn it up, my friend. But for most of us, going all the way, in terms of power, won’t be necessary.
Speaking of going all the way: you will, but your schlong might not. If you’re at the top of the medium length, you may find that it doesn’t take all of you. Just like the human mouth, it simulates, there are limitations, but it’s designed to work in all key areas and it doesn’t really affect the outcome.
Once you’re in, you’re in. Slick and comfortable, the first thing you’ll notice is the noise. An understated, sneaky tool for late-night entertainment in a sleepy house, it’s not. The vibrations are powerful and the sound is loud. Add to that the squelching of a tight silicone muff hugging an oiled up dong and you have yourself a full Greek choir proclaiming you, sir, jerk off!
But assuming you’re home alone or someone in the house is vacuuming, you’ll soon be distracted by… what’s that? The soft, moist movements of a smooth sleeve with small mechanized parts moving beneath its surface to push, stroke, caress and generally work on your bean with the skill of a massager and a steady, rhythmic flow.
At this point, I must say that you can use the F1S V2 in two very different ways. There’s an app for everything, including high-end handjob muffs. You can, if you wish, enthusiastically dive into the dashboard-style controls that allow you to customize his moves and even track your performance feedback, monitor speed, stamina and skill(?) To customize your own bespoke DIY programs.
I usually crave a handjob. So, as a man of simple pleasures, I went through the four built-in “pleasure programs” until I found one that worked. You can go from mild to wild, and the app is easy to connect and intuitive to follow, but I found the standard settings to be more than enough to keep me entertained.
The money shot
Ultimately, the F1S V2, with all its lofty claims of innovative technology and breathtaking Nordic-engineered motor skills, really only has one job. And yes, as they say in Sweden, with their deliciously too correct English, I arrived.
On first use, it was a bit bulky. Going through the various moves and figuring out the logistics can feel like a duty, rather than a way to relax. Admittedly, some of these settings make it look like you’re getting a lusty, sloppy visit from someone who is undoubtedly extremely enthusiastic but may not like you very much.
I’ve had rave and rave reviews of this air drill-like power from friends who have tried the F1S V2. Also, incidentally, of the card-carrying female sex, in love with Lelo’s powerful women’s toys. But I found myself trying to find the settings that are a bit quieter and less ballistic.
After using it a few times with a (male) partner and then alone again, the handjob sleeve and I found our natural rhythm, and have since been good friends with benefits.
The need to know
At £199, (Where if you’re lucky it’s on sale and available for £149 for a limited time) the F1S V2 is not cheap. However, compared to similar products on the market, it seems the high price tag is justified, with real usability and looks that set it apart from its peers. It’s easy to set up and use once you get to know you, it charges in 60 minutes for two hours of use and it’s waterproof so easy to rinse and clean.
It’s loud, which can be distracting, but it’s also loud, which directly distracts you from what it’s doing. If you love tech and are ready to explore and try new things, this is pro-level sex tech for the man who has it all. Except, perhaps, a human person to suck him on demand. BUY IT NOW
