    When ever people wanted have a bar maiden wench, but didn't have the coin to put it in her. So they improvised. Maybe around 507 AD, when the slave trade from the collapsing roman empire declined, and there were no slaves to readily rape

    I made a little black joke in my head after reading the thread title. Insane that that's actually the origin.

    Clippy, you are a weirdo. :D

    I'd guessed late 1800's, maybe 1880 or 1890.
    I wasn't too far off: US patent was issued in 1899 and after some technology improvements they started taking off in popularity.

    Am I a disgusting pervert if I read the title as "when were fleshlights invented" and thinking "I got this one"?

    Maybe you should read the thread title, and then read it again. Pervert.

    @Clippy ’s threads should be called “Deep Thoughts” like that old SNL bit.
