Title: Optical receptacle

Abstract: The present invention relates to an optical receptacle which prevents the occurrence of a large impact by collision of a plug body with an optical propagation member. The optical receptacle includes a solid sleeve having a cavity hole into which the plug body is inserted from its one end side and which has an even inner diameter so as not to substantially define a gap with respect to an outer diameter of the plug body and an optical propagation member fixedly secured to the other end side of the cavity hole, with the solid sleeve being formed such that a length from an end portion of the cavity hole on the plug body insertion side to the optical propagation member is longer than a maximum length of extension due to the elastic body of the terminal member.
