Choosing the Suitable Material for Sex Dolls

By | July 3, 2024

Currently, the market mainly offers two types of materials for sex dolls: silicone and TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer).

1. Characteristics and Advantages/Disadvantages of Silicone: Silicone sex dolls are relatively firm. Modern silicone can be made softer (at a higher cost), achieving a softness rating of around 65 on a scale where real-life softness is 100, with regular silicone around 50. Silicone’s density contributes to its hardness; higher density generally means greater hardness. Silicone dolls visually appear more refined and lifelike, with makeup applied through spraying techniques, including eyebrow and eyelash implantation for durability. However, silicone is expensive due to the cost of raw materials, the need for vulcanization during production, and irreparable flaws.

2. Characteristics and Advantages/Disadvantages of TPE: TPE sex dolls offer a softer, smoother feel. Standard TPE can reach about 85 on the softness scale (akin to a “soft girl”), while jelly TPE can achieve around 95, and platinum TPE (raw TPE) approximately 70. However, TPE dolls may not look as realistic as silicone dolls visually and do not support hair implantation. Eyebrows are hand-drawn, and eyelashes are typically false. Despite this, TPE is cheaper, requiring only heat-mold-and-cool processing, with easy repair of flaws.

Recommendations Based on Characteristics:

  • A. Purpose as an Adult Product Only or Budget Constraint: If your sole purpose is using the sex doll as an adult product or if budget is limited, a full TPE doll is recommended. For a higher budget or better quality, consider a sex doll with a silicone head and TPE body.
  • B. Purpose as a Figurine: For collectors or those interested in cosplay, a fully silicone sex doll with hair implantation is ideal. If budget is limited, consider a silicone head with a TPE body.
  • C. Dual Purpose (Figurine and Adult Product): A silicone head with a TPE body is suitable for those wanting both figurine aesthetics and practical use as an adult product.

Choosing the Sex Doll Size and Type:

Sex Dolls are categorized based on size and type:

  • Miniature: 50 to 90 cm, weighing 6 to 10 kg.
  • Lolita: 90 to 130 cm, weighing 12 to 20 kg.
  • Cute and Innocent: 130 to 155 cm, weighing 20 to 30 kg.
  • Mature: 155 to 172 cm, weighing 27 to 50 kg.

For taller sex dolls, elegance increases but so does weight. Considering both height and weight is crucial since sex doll weight differs significantly from human weight perception. Therefore, sex dolls between 140 to 160 cm are generally recommended for practical use.

These considerations provide a comprehensive guide to choosing the right material and size/type for your sex doll, catering to both aesthetic preferences and practical considerations.
