I purchased one of these a while ago and also had a fleshlight and I got to say, this is WAY better than the expensive fleshlight. I have both, but the Vulcan one is more comfortable and more versatile and makes me blow my load several times!!! As far as cleaning and putting it back together, I don't think it's difficult at all. I think it's easier compared to my fleshlight. I use the Vulcan all the time and the fleshlight is almost rarely used. I wish I had bought the Vulcan one first!!!!! It's so realistic and feels so good! When my bf fucks me, I use the Vulcan one at the same time! When he's not spending the night, I fuck the Vulcan and pretend it's my bf that I'm fucking!!! Buy it!!!! It's worth every cent!!!!
