Contemplating buying your first sex doll, but have no idea what the heck comes with them and how they work? Have no worries because, in this post, I am going to tell you all you need to know about sex dolls. The purpose of this piece is to give you all the information you need and answer as many questions as possible you might have about sex dolls so you can make an informed decision.
When I started looking for sex dolls for the first time, I quickly learned that I didn’t know shit about them. There were literally thousands of these things, coming in different models, makes, sizes, genders, et cetera. The sheer volume available online and options to choose from made my head spin. Before, looking at the nitty-gritty of sex dolls, let’s first look at a few basics;
Who Invented Sex Dolls?
It is a common belief that sex dolls were first developed by Hitler and his Nazi regime in a bid to satisfy the sexual needs of his German armies during the Nazi invasion in Europe. It is believed that Hitler wanted to keep the Aryan race as pure as possible, and therefore if his army men started making European women pregnant, there inevitably be a mixed race. To avoid this, Hitler had to find a way to satisfy his Nazi infantrymen sexually, so he gave them sex dolls, therefore, combating any need for the soldiers to start exploring international vaginas. Well, that’s what some people believe.
However, contrary to this claim, the truth is that sex dolls were more likely invented by the lustful and lonely Dutch sailors in the seventeenth century. You see, these guys needed some female company in their long sea trips, and as you might already be aware, sex dolls are very capable of providing such companionship. After realizing how important and valuable the dolls could be, the Dutch sailors started selling some of their dolls to Japan. This is what coined the nickname “Dutch Wives.”

So when shopping for a quality sex doll, you might want to compare their products, and you are sure to get a doll that will meet your needs.
Types of Sex Dolls
There are various types of sex dolls, but all of them fall into two main categories: those made from Silicone or those made from Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE). While there are other materials like Cyberskin, Plastic, fabric, latex, and rubber, when it comes to premium dolls, Silicone and TPE dolls are the key players in the game. But still, the two materials, that’s, TPE and Silicone have their pros and cons.
The main advantages of TPE dolls include the fact that they are cheap and soft. So in case you prefer a soft body for your sex doll, you should consider getting a TPE doll. They are also odorless. Silicone dolls also come with their advantages. For instance, a silicone doll is more heat-resistant meaning that it can easily handle hot baths. Besides, silicone is doesn’t tear easily like TPE does, and therefore, more durable. And since silicone is heat-resistant, you can find a doll that incorporates an integrated heating system. Silicone is also non-porous which makes it easier to clean. Finally, I noticed that the skin of my silicone dolls feel a little more realistic that that of TPE dolls.
It is, however, important to mention that there’s really no “wrong” or “right” here. Unless you’ve had some experience with one of the two materials, it is advisable that you don’t pay too much attention comparing the two materials. That way, you will have a wide range of options to choose from. It is also important that you shop for a doll that has features that you like; do not get stuck too much on the materials in the choosing process.
From my experience, only TPE or Silicone wives can give you an overwhelming experience. The other materials can be very disappointing especially because dolls made from them do not look and feel realistic. They are also more difficult to sterilize or clean. Now here are various types of sex dolls;
Torsos and Vaginas
Torsos and vaginas are arguably the most popular masturbators among consumers. They can be made out of silicone or TPE, and you can get one for as low as $100. Torsos have oral, anal, and vaginal capabilities. However, they don’t have arms and legs, so if you don’t care too much about a life-like, realistic experience, this type of sex doll could be great for you. Besides, it won’t hurt your bank account too much.
Mini sex dolls
These are more realistic sex dolls, but as the name suggests, they are a bit smaller than a standard realistic sex doll. They usually range from about 100cm up to 125cm. Besides being relatively cheap, their compact sizes make them more portable, so you can take them with you wherever you want. They are cute, and most have tiny waists and butts. Some also have vaginal, anal, and oral sex capabilities.
Realistic sex dolls
Of course, these are the best bet. They come with humanlike features, and you have a wide range of options to choose from: from brunette to blond, short to tall, tanned to light-skinned, you are sure to get one that you will be attracted to. And this type of sex dolls often have names, making them more realistic. Some of the more expensive ones have the capabilities of holding a conversation.
Customized sex dolls
In case you have a particular taste or a little picky on, say, toenail color, breast size, or even hairstyle, you can have a sex doll customized for you. Customization can be done for the nipples, vagina color, eye color, pubic hair, etc. Note that customization will cost you more money, but it is worth it because you are going to get exactly what you want.
How much does a sex doll cost?
The cost of sex dolls varies widely depending on various factors which include the material used, the type of doll you want, the models, brand, et cetera. You can get yourself a sex doll with as low as $100 and as high as $6000+. Some high-end sex dolls even cost up to $9000. Mid-range dolls often cost about $2000. Basically, though, how much a good sex doll should cost will largely depend on your budget.
Torsos often cost in the area of $100 to $500; mid sex dolls range from about $600 to about $1600 while realistic and customized dolls can anywhere between $1800 to $9000+.
For most people including myself, the price usually ends up being the most important factor when choosing a sex doll. You will agree with me that this is sadly the case even when choosing other goods and services; there is no other way around it, and sometimes, we end up choosing a poor quality product in a bid to save a few bucks. When it comes to sex dolls, money does buy happiness, and if you are going to have the best experience, you are going to have to part with several hundred or a few thousand dollars.
Usually, the most expensive brands tend to use the most advanced technology in their products, and therefore, their sex dolls often have the most realistic features and most incredible bodies. Some high-end sex dolls feature artificial intelligence, titanium skeletons, ultra-realistic features, among other perks. Interestingly, the bodies of some of these high-end dolls are more like those of typical goddesses, and as a matter of fact, they look more beautiful than over 50% of women out here.
Note, however, that you do not have to buy an expensive sex doll right away, You have a lot of options budget options, and in fact, some of the less expensive dolls feel and look close to the top-tier options. Usually, it is advisable that you stay around $1000 for your first purchase. In case you already own a sex doll, and you wish to upgrade, then the sky is the limit!
How do sex dolls work?
When writing down this question, I thought “what a weird question this is!” But, it is an important question especially if you haven’t used a sex doll before. So I am going to try answering the question as comprehensively as possible. I am going to split the question into two parts: how they work physically and how they work as far as emotional connections are concerned. So here we go;
How they work physically
As far as physicality is concerned, sex dolls usually work like a real woman, but, of course, without all those negative aspects that usually come with dealing with a real woman. What I mean is, there are no expensive dates, no emotional damage, no noisy kids, and no ’s.
When it comes to the sex itself, the dolls work according to their vaginas’ design. When fucking a sex doll, you will usually feel some vacuum forming inside the doll’s chambers, and you’ll like your penis is being pulled by the pussy. The effect is also incredibly strong during oral sex. Both the anal and vaginal tunnels are molded such that they resemble a real girl’s. Sex dolls, therefore, work very similar to a real woman during sex.
The emotional side
Most sex dolls, especially the more realistic ones, not only create physical bonds, but they are also capable of creating deeper emotional connections with the owner. This might be hard to believe, but it is possible that you could end up loving your doll. It happens. Ask any sex doll owner if they only treat their dolls as “fucking objects,” and you will find out that most of them will answer no.
Ending up emotionally attached to your sex doll is easier than you might think, and this is not a bad thing. After all, if you were looking for just something or someone to fuck, it is possible that you get a random hooker for just a fraction of what you’d use on a sex doll, right?
What to consider when getting a sex doll (How to choose a sex doll)
With more and more sex dolls being introduced to market today, having a few tips on shopping for the right product can mean the difference between getting a top-class product and an underwhelming and disappointing doll. The following are some of the top factors to consider when buying any sex doll;
As noted earlier, you do not have to get the most expensive product on the market right away. You have a lot of budget options. Usually, the price of the doll depends on the body dimensions of the doll such as butt size and breast size. You might be tempted to take a loan and get the most attractive doll out there, but is not advisable. Plan your budget and find a doll that will right into your budget. There are different models and types to choose from so you are sure to find a doll that satisfies your needs.
Size of the doll
Do you have enough space in your room or house for a life-size sex doll? Would a torso or mini doll be a better option instead? Where are you going to place your doll? These are some of the questions you should ask yourself when deciding on the size of a sex doll to get. Remember the doll is going to need some room for cleaning and storing. So be sure to make your decisions accordingly and choose the doll size that will be appropriate for you.
The sizes of sex dolls often range from 82cm torso to about 175cm life-like dolls. Besides, bear in mind that most of these dolls are made with human-like steel skeletons so they can be articulated, and this sometimes makes them a bit heavy. It is for these, among other reasons, that you should choose your dolls wisely according to weight and size that you’ll be able to handle easily.
As discussed earlier, top-quality sex dolls usually come in two major types of material, that is, TPE and silicone. And as we saw, both TPE and Silicone wives have come with their fair share of pros and cons. Silicone dolls are more durable, but TPE wives stand out when it comes to realism because they have more realistic quantities and they are more flexible, soft, and easy to squeeze. However, both Silicone and TPE dolls look pretty realistic and beautiful.
Silicone is heat-resistant, so it can be heated for extended periods when incorporating integrated heating systems. It is non-porous making it way easier to sterilize and clean. You only need to learn about these two materials to make up an informed decision on which one to get. But as pointed out earlier, do not pay too much attention to the type of material or you will end limiting your options.
The doll’s figure or shape
Sex dolls come in a variety of figures and shapes. You will need to consider such things as the type of breasts you want, the size of butts, and the kind of body you’d like. For instance, do want small, medium, or large tits? What waist size would be ideal for you? How big should the ass be? If you love big booties, then you might want to consider large size hips. Other things include how you’d like your sex partner to look like: blonde, Latina, ebony, etc.
In case you wish to have a doll built according to your particular desires, then you customizations options will come in handy. You can customize various parts of your sex dolls such as the head, hair, eyes, toenail color, nipple color, fingernails, vagina, pubic hair, feet, skin color, et cetera.
When it comes to hair, most companies have a wide collection of wigs to choose from. There are various types of toenail and finger nail colors, up to three vagina and nipple colors (Tan, natural, and pink), and different eye colors. You also get to choose whether or not you want a removable or fixed vagina. A removal vagina is easy to sterilize and clean but quite technical as regards fixing and pulling it out.
Shipping and handling
As the number of companies manufacturing sex dolls increases, the competition for consumers is getting stiffer, and, therefore, many companies are offering free shipping and handling these days. Most companies ship worldwide and shipping is discreet, so you do not have to worry about your neighbor knowing about your product.
It is advisable that you get your sex doll from a reputable brand. Also, always buy your dolls from a verified vendor to avoid getting counterfeit or poor-quality products. Remember also that most big companies have a return policy, so in case you notice that your doll is defective in any way, you can return it and get a different one. This emphasizes the importance of getting your doll from a reputable brand or verified vendor.
How to use a sex doll
Now, this is perhaps going to be the most interesting part of this article. It is one of the most crucial questions when it comes to sex dolls. So how do you think a sex doll is used? “Just stick penis in their…,” one might think, but in reality, there’s more to it, and there are several things you can do to get maximum pleasure.
Note, however, that how to use your sex doll largely depends on which type you’ve got. It is, therefore, a little difficult to give suggest universally applicable recommendations here. However, here some crucial tips based on my experience with sex toys;
Tips on having sex with your sex toy
This shouldn’t be complicated. But, before you start, it is advisable to have some water-based lube at hand. As we’ll see later, the lube definitely has to be water-based. Once you have your lube ready, here is a basic process of fucking your sex doll.
– Once you are horny, take out your doll and through it on the bed. Remember that if you have a silicone doll, you can always fuck it a hot bath.
– Next, position your doll in whichever way you want. Most top-quality dolls have human-like skeletons which allow them to stay in any position easily. I personally love doggy-style. I occasionally position my dolls for some missionary and sometimes, have sex with them standing.
– Apply your lube generously on yourself, that’s on your ding-dong, and on the doll, mostly in the pussy, unless, of course, you’re in the mood for some blowjob from the doll.
– Select a hole, and you go ahead and start having sex. Of course, you know what to do here, so this part doesn’t need much explanation. Your instinct on how to have sex with (or fuck) a woman carries over to when using sex dolls.
– It is important, though, to note just fuck your sex doll. Try having sex with her; kiss and caress her, grab her breasts, etc. And while she has no nerves to stimulate, it is still a great feeling to grab her tits, and you pound her.
– Try different positions. You can, for instance, start with the doggy-style, some missionary, switch to some little cowgirl mode, and finish off with say, a throat fuck. The importance of changing positions is that it makes the sex feel more realistic, as well as, more exciting. So do not be afraid to try new styles and options.
– Once you are finished, take some time to cool off and then clean your doll. Have no idea how to clean a sex doll? Don’t worry; almost every doll comes with a complete guide on cleaning and sterilizing, so be sure to go through the manuals. Note that for your doll to last long, you will need to properly take care of it, and cleaning it is actually the most critical factor of the maintenance process.
What’s the best lube to use on sex dolls?
As I mentioned earlier, the best lube to use on your sex doll is a water-based lube. This is because oil-based lubes will often react with the material (especially silicone) used in making your sex doll. Your doll will then start becoming stained, and it will eventually lose its beauty, and it may even become downright broken.
Some people argue that it is okay to use silicone-based lubricants on TPE sex dolls, but I have realized that this is absolutely false. I once used a silicone-based lube on a TPE doll and in under 30 minutes, stains already appeared. While they weren’t catastrophic (thankfully), they are still visible to date. So no matter what material your sex doll is made of, it is advisable that you only use a water-based lubricant when having sex.
Storing your sex doll
The best way to store your TPE or Silicone wives is to find some dry place that’s not exposed to extreme temperatures or light. Most sex dolls come with storing options like flight cases and suspension hooks. Suspension hooks are perhaps a better way to store the dolls because they avoid flattening of body parts. When storing your doll, be sure to straighten up legs and arms to their original positions to ensure that no other objects in wherever the doll is stored hit the doll.
In case, your doll didn’t come with a flight case; you can buy one for your specific model (especially if you have silicone dolls). Apart from storage, flight cases come in handy when transporting your sex dolls. It is highly recommended that you don’t leave your sex doll laying or seated in the couch or bed for a long time because this can result in some parts flattening. Again, be sure to always use the doll’s original box plus the shipping materials when storing your sex doll in case you do not have a flight case or a suspension hook.
