SEVILLE, Spain — Interactive Life Forms, the makers of the Fleshlight, Fleshjack and Fleshlight Girls brands, have crossed the Atlantic Ocean to form Fleshlight International S.L., based in Seville.

Owned by the same family that invented patented Fleshlight products, Fleshlight International is operated by Europeans, for Europeans, the company said.

FLi's unique website — EU.Fleshlight.com — targets European visitors via IP address and is not visible outside of Europe. While the website will continue to offer the same Fleshlight, Fleshjack and Fleshlight Girls brand products it also includes a host of new products.

While the website has made an official launch and is available to European visitors for retail purchases, all proprietary products have been supplied to Spain by ILF in the U.S. Fleshlight is working on duplicating its facilities’ operations and manufacturing practices in Europe.

“Over the last decade, while ILF and its related brands continued to grow and develop into a well-known line of quality adult products for men, Europeans were less able to enjoy the advantages of the product line due to ILF’s base of operations, including manufacturing, being in the U.S.,” Fleshlight International’s Todd Porter said.

“This geographic disadvantage resulted in costly shipping fees, lengthy transit times, crippling customs fees and duties and, of course, the additional costs of VAT leading many would-be European customers to look elsewhere for Fleshlight-related products or to settle for inferior alternatives.

“This new venture allows FLi to cater directly to the European community and alleviates many, if not all, of the deterrents previously associated with purchasing from ILF in the U.S. In fact, to celebrate it’s arrival in Europe, FLi is including VAT in the purchase price of all products and is working with DHL to offer free shipping to all locations within the E.U. for a limited time.”

European customers can look forward to no import taxes, VAT included and affordable shipping fees from DHL. Fleshlight also had added new payment methods. All orders ship directly from Spain and the facility is primarily staffed with local, Spanish employees.

By shipping and soon-to-be manufacturing independently from two continents, Fleshlight aims at extending its reach, while influencing and impacting perspectives regarding male sexuality, the company said.

“We are eager to embark upon our mission and sincerely hope you'll accept us as a part of your community and join us for the journey,” Porter said.
