Research The Different Materials

Researching the materials used to create your doll is a good place to start, as this is the main detail that determines how the doll feels.

A few materials are predominantly used to create modern sex dolls, and these most often also determine the price of the final product. Here’s what you should know:

Silicone sex dolls are the most valued types of dolls in the industry as silicone is the highest-standard quality material that feels good and sturdy, but it is also very resistant to heat, strong pressure, and potentially pathogenic bacteria.

Silicone sex dolls won’t retain any odors, which means your doll will not start to smell after a while.

Silicone is also the easiest material to work with and create realistic-looking facial features and curves that resemble a real woman.

TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) is less durable and slightly cheaper than silicone. The advantage of TPE is that it offers a very realistic feeling because it’s super soft and jiggly, which many people prefer over sturdy silicone.

However, if you decide upon a TPE sex doll, bear in mind that a little more care goes into it because it’s less resistant to heat which means you shouldn’t leave it exposed to strong sunlight or another heating source as well as it is easier for the material to be damaged under strong pressure, which means you need to handle your TPE doll gently.

Rubber sex dolls are still used occasionally, but they are usually an option when people can’t afford anything more expensive or modern sex dolls are not available in their respective countries.

Rubber sex dolls, although low quality and prone to tearing and damages are easier to store and hide, which is useful when privacy is your biggest concern. They are also the easiest to clean and maintain.

Choose Durable Sex Dolls

When choosing a sex doll, you need to go beyond the skin and make sure your sex doll has a quality skeletal structure that allows the doll to bend using its joints so that it can maintain a set position just like a real human.

Silicone dolls are your best bet for this as these are usually heavier, and they require a good skeletal framework to help them stay in position.

This is incredibly useful if you plan on keeping your sex doll in a visible space like seated in the living room even when you’re not using it.

However, don’t leave your sex doll bent for a long time without changing her position and straightening her up a little bit every once in a while, as this may cause permanent creases in areas like the elbows, backs of knees, etc.

Pay Attention to The Size and Weight

When buying your first sex doll, you need to pay attention to the size and weight. Modern sex dolls usually come in both mini and life-sized versions.

There isn’t an international standard for when the size of a doll makes it a mini-doll, but generally, they tend to be no taller than 100 cm (39 inches).

On the other hand, life-sized sex dolls can weigh well over 40 kg (90 pounds), and because of this, they require significant strength and energy to be moved around.

To be honest, both models of modern sex dolls have their advantages and disadvantages.

For example, mini sex dolls are cheaper, easier to use, clean, store, and maintain, but the downside is that they are not as realistic-looking.

While, on the other hand, life-sized sex dolls are more realistic-looking and usually have more than one hole waiting to be filled, however; their downside is that they are more expensive, require a bit more care while cleaning, maintaining, and storing, and are not recommended for people that have mobility issues or can’t lift heavy objects.

pros and cons of owning a sex doll

Think About Storage

While already on the subject of the height of your love doll, you should consider how much storage space you will have available for your doll.

Mini sex dolls under 100 cm are much easier to hide and store, so if you don’t have access to a convenient storage solution like a special cabinet, it might be a good idea to go mini.

However, if you have enough room in your house to dedicate a special location to your doll (or if you are comfortable with your doll always being in bed with you), then a full-sized doll is most definitely worth considering.

Think About The Things You Like

There are so many sex dolls available that will literally make your head spin in circles while trying to decide which one will be best for you.

And while you probably wouldn’t want to stop at one, one of the best things to do when purchasing your very first doll is to think about the things you like.

You can literally have any doll you want, so let your secret fantasies run wild, as these will help you make a perfect choice.

If you’ve always liked dark-skinned girls, but you’ve never had the chance to sleep with one – what’s stopping you from getting a doll that embodies all the things you like in a woman?

A good way to remember your desired qualities is simply by writing them down. This might sound silly at first, but trust me, it really works.

As I already said, there are so many sex dolls available, and it’s really easy to get frustrated while browsing if you don’t exactly know what you are looking for.

Customize Your Doll

Praise the gods of customization that have blessed you with an unimaginable variety of different choices when it comes to the details of your sex doll.

Most sex doll websites offer customization options that allow you to choose anything from eye color, skin color, areola size and color, nail color, and even vaginas that can be bare or bushy.

The choice is always yours, so make sure to take advantage of this option for a more personalized experience.

Additionally, it’s always a good idea to have a variety of extras such as wigs and clothing to make things a little more interesting.

Once you purchase your sex doll, consider adding on to it by buying a few different hair colors or hairstyles that you can switch between as well as clothing, lingerie, etc., that will make things more interesting for you.

Remember to stay away from materials such as faux leather, latex, dark and pigmented colors, as well as jeans, as these may potentially stain your doll in some circumstances, such as when being exposed to heat.

Do Your Research on The Seller

When you want to invest in a pricey sex doll, you should always research the seller and make sure the seller is legit and that the company has your best interest and ultimate satisfaction in mind.

Also, make sure that the seller has a valid address, email, and contact number listed on the website that you can use to get in touch whenever you need to.

Many scammy websites don’t have a clear address or contact number because this would make it too easy to find out they aren’t legitimate, so it’s something you should definitely pay attention to while browsing a website that sells sex dolls.

Additionally, it’s also a good idea to make sure that you can communicate with the seller. Shoot them an email beforehand and ask a couple of generic questions. This way, you will see how they respond and figure and whether they are legit or not.

Take Your Budget Into Consideration

Buying a sex doll isn’t something you should try and save money on. I always like to say that buying a sex doll is a luxury splurge that when you decide to treat yourself with it, you should definitely do so on a larger budget.

With modern sex dolls, you get what you pay for, and this is why having a larger budget will purchase you greater pleasure.

Many things play a role in determining the price of a sex doll: time, details, and talent being the three crucial ones; therefore, you know that a good product will be worth a lot of money.

A word of advice would be to not aim for something lower than $1,500 if you want a good quality, life-sized sex doll.

Additionally, if you can’t afford to splurge on a full-sized doll, perhaps you can opt for something like torsos, butts, and vaginas, which usually come cheaper, but they have a decent quality.
