AUSTIN — Fleshlight has announced that it has officially sold more than 4 million adult toy products.

Introduced to the market in 1995 with the Original Pink Lady, Fleshlight took the adult industry by storm with true-to-life molds of women’s vaginas.

We then introduced various internal sensations which kept our customers coming back for more,” Fleshlight COO Brian Shubin said. “At this point with extensive online marketing and a vast product line, Fleshlight was beginning to attract a cult following. We have since introduced some products that have been huge successes. “We have replicated today's biggest porn stars anatomy to create the Fleshlight Girls line of products as well have launched a widely desired vibrating Fleshlight product. To date, our best seller is the Stamina Training Unit (STU) which helps men improve their endurance during intercourse.”

The Fleshlight has been featured in mainstream movies, including “Zach and Miri Make a Porno” and “Baby on Board” as well as in an episode of the hit television series “Californication” starring David Duchovny. Most recently, Fleshlight was featured on Comedy Central’s,”Tosh.O.”

Men’s blog Guyism.com, published a list of “50 guys we wish we were in 2010,” in which Steve Shubin, creator and founder of Fleshlight, was listed at No. 49. “Don’t recognize the name? Sure. But if you spend time trolling any kind of porn website (yep, that covers all of you), you’re sure to recognize his product: the Fleshlight,” the article said. “For those who don’t know, it’s basically a hollowed out flashlight with a skin-like interior for those lonelier nights. Steve’s male sex toy was always an innovation but he really outdid himself this year when he unveiled the Avatar edition. You may never party with the Na’vi but with Fleshlight, you can feel like you’re humping the Unobtanium out of one. Yes, that really just happened.”

To celebrate Fleshlight’s milestone, the company is rolling back prices to the original selling point of $59.95 for the entire month of May 2011.

“We are elated to be where we are at this point,” Shubin said. “Four million sold is a huge milestone for us. It is really enjoyable for the Fleshlight team because we feel like 4 million units sold is just the tip of the iceberg. In the near future our customers can expect to see Fleshlight continuing to lead the male toy industry with the release of some great new products. We want to say thank you to our loyal customers by rolling prices back in celebration of 4 million sold."
