Materials to Consider When Purchasing a Sex Doll

There are many options when it comes to sex dolls that you can consider. The two main materials that are used to produce sex dolls are silicone and TPE which is thermoplastic rubber. But there are differences between these materials and the price ranges can also vary.

TPE is a material that can be easily moulded and it is very soft. This material is also very stretchable. It is a very affordable option when it comes to sex doll materials. The quality is very good given that it is soft and elastic. And this material quality gives a lifelike touch to the sex doll that can add to the experience. It is recommended to use lubricants when using sex dolls. And when it comes to TPE dolls, you can select either water based or silicone lubricants. TPE is a very flexible material so you will be able to experiment with a variety of sexual positions. However, it is quite porous which can create some difficulty when cleaning the doll.So if you are willing to spend more time on the maintenance of the doll, TPE is an acceptable option.  Also, it can stain easily so you need to be very careful when dressing the doll in new fabric. It is best to check the effect of the fabric on a spot that is less noticeable such as the head to check if it stains.

Silicone is a polymer that is very resistant to heat. So they are a great option if you are planning to have hot baths with a sex doll. This is not the case in TPE as it can be sensitive to heat. And silicone rubber can be very soft or firm depending on the formula used in its production. You can easily sterilise this material by boiling it. Silicone love dolls have been used for a very long time and you will be able to clean this material very easily. And sterilising parts of the sex doll is easy as well. Silicone sex dolls can be produced to have realistic orifices. The material is quite durable so it has more resistance to stains. And it looks very realistic as well. Because of these factors, silicone sex dolls tend to be more expensive than TPE dolls. However, it can be quite stiff to the touch when compared to TPE. Durability of TPE can be considered better than silicone dolls.

There is a lot that goes into the manufacturing process of a doll and designers will decide on all aspects of a doll at the first stage. There are also companies that cater to custom orders so you will be able to work closely with the design team. Once the design is finalised, a mould will be created and the material will be poured into the mould to cast it. The mould will also contain the skeleton of the doll. Customisation after the casting of the mould will include changing spare parts, eye colour, wigs etc.
