We first reported in July that Southern California porn star Lupe “Little Lupe” Fuentes had filed a lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court against the Texas manufacturer of Fleshlight, a flesh-like masturbatory sleeve that claims to perform the role of “artificial vagina” with the “most realistic sensation” possible.
Fuentes and her husband–onetime Biohazard rocker, sometimes porn star Evan Seinfeld–claimed in their lawsuit that Interactive Life Forms, Inc. violated the terms of a contract by discontinuing to sell Fleshlights of Fuentes' vaginal likeness before March 2011, a move that allegedly stiffed her untold sums of money.
Interactive Life Forms head honcho Steven Shubin discontinued making the Fuentes Fleshlight, he claimed in an email to Seinfeld, because of lack of public interest.
(On the company's website, Shubin continues to promote Fleshlights as “sex in a can” and “exact molds” for porn stars Alexis Texas, Tori Black, Katsuni, Bibi
Jones, Kayden Kross, Jessica Drake, Riley Steele, Jenna Haza, Asa Akira,
Misty Stone, Lisa Ann, Tegan Presley and Tera Patrick.)
Shubin got the lawsuit transferred to Orange County's Ronald Reagan
Federal Courthouse in August and then last month both parties told U.S.
District Court Judge James V. Selna they've agreed to move the case one
more time to Travis County, Texas, for arbitration.
Seinfeld and Fuentes, who claims she is entitled to 12.5 percent of net sales of her vaginal likeness, are seeking $1 million in damages.
