The Best Cheap Sex Dolls For Men in 2020, The Buyer’s Guide

After more than 80 hours of extensive research, scouring the doll forums, filtering through the plethora of sex doll shops, crowdsourcing enthusiast opinions over several hundred reviews, we present to you the ultimate first-time doll buyer's guide.

As for the price, here's the reality - cheap sex dolls for less than $1000 will be just a waste of money and disappointing. Better choose a blowjob machine and pick a quality doll, when you can afford it. For $1000 you'll get a 100com or shorter doll made from TPE. For $1500 you'll get around 150cm doll, for $2000-$2500 you'll get life-like, life-size quality doll as you see in the cover picture.

The hardest decision is to pick the right sex doll shop that has a reliable support and dolls actually look the way they do in pictures. We identified that SexDollGenie (it has payment plans too) stood out among the rest based on many customer reviews.

“Having a Sex Doll Is Like Having Your Own Personal Pornstar.”

I might have been living in the stone age.

I never thought that sex dolls have become so life-like and realistic.

I’m not even kidding. If you put her sitting in your car people would think it was a real chick. Incredible.

Not only doll looks like a real woman, but she also feels like a one…

From the soft lips to her perfectly firm, bouncy breasts and butt.

Pictures cant easily show the astonishingly high quality and detailed workmanship.

You have to hold the doll in your arms — seeing, touching, feeling…to really appreciate how remarkably life-like they truly are.

Dolls work because men are wired to appreciate a sexy female body.

It comes down to that incredible shape:

Showing the jiggle, the realism & craftsmanship (’s a doll, but still).

Honestly, if you want the next best thing, this is it.

When I was considering a purchase, my thoughts were:

“We only live once, what the heck, I’m gonna give it a shot. Better try it than always keep wondering what it’s like to bang a doll”.

In this guide, you’ll learn everything you need to know about owning the sex doll.

It’s the manual that every potential doll owner should read before buying anything.

It’s a long read, but it will save you so much time, money, give you the right expectations and knowledge on how to care for the doll to ensure it a long life.

Seriously. Read this from start to finish. You’ll thank me later.

TOP 5 Reasons Why Men Choose To Get a Sex Doll

RealDoll dolls go $6,000–$10,000 range. Great if you can afford it, you can get very close to it for $2,000 from Chinese.

First of all, if you care too much what anyone thinks for you want one, you shouldn’t get one.

I’ve heard all of the shaming from guys and girls.

I initially too believed that sex dolls owners were what the media claimed:

Lonely, single, pathetic men who hate women, have no social skills and no other options.

But what if we are just men going our own way (MGTOW)?

Having a sex doll doesn’t mean we’ve totally lost hope in a human to human relationship.

But just imagine your potential with a clearer mind when you have your doll at home.

It will really get you to objectively think about what women offer you OUTSIDE of sex.

And you will not thirst for a gf like someone who’s not getting laid would.

You’ll simply make better decisions.

Here are the most common reasons why men get a doll and the benefits they get out of it:

#1 — (Satisfy Fantasies) You want the sex without the work & have a high sex drive that never has been fully satisfied

You can always use a doll whenever you want.

For some reason, it always seems like whenever I’m in the mood she’s not.

When she’s in the mood, I’m zoned in on a project and I’m not.

But sex doll is always in the mood because it doesn’t have moods.
The downside? It’s not the same as with a real woman.
The upside? Like I said it’s not the same as with a real woman.

You can jump straight into sex without having to spend money on dinner, gas, and movie tickets.

You don’t need to work on arousing and getting the doll off during sex.

You can do whatever you want with no pressure.

No worries of birth control, STD’s.

Doll doesn’t move like a real woman, but you can damn sure make her.

You have the freedom to manhandle the shit out of them.

You can be extremely selfish and live out your sexual fantasies that cannot be fulfilled in real life.

Sex dolls are submissive partners and will not be upset or hurt your feelings over anything.

As one guy said:

A pair of boobs you only have to pay for once. That’s gonna be a hard deal to beat.”

Of course, it’s weird to bang a rubber chick, but sex with a doll doesn’t seem to be too far removed from some encounters with women with the dead fish style a lot of them seem to prefer.

#2 — (To take the pressure off dating) Serve as therapy between relationships & have a “backup plan”

For some men, dolls are a transition.

A way to get comfortable with the female body and then build the confidence to approach a real woman.

Sex dolls can be a great emotional help for coping with their loss of loved one or breakup.

Since you’re getting your urges fulfilled from a doll and it’s damn near close to the real thing, you’ll see the world with clear, objective eyes.

You won’t feel pressure to get the girl in the bed as soon as possible.

And if a girl tries to bullshit you or is arrogant in any way you’ll have no issues leaving mid-date and just go home and fuck that doll.

You’ll simply have a “backup plan” and that will give you power.

#3 — (To drop out of the game entirely) A way to trick the brain out of loneliness, avoid drama and dating/marriage death trap

Okay, so this is more extreme MGTOW, Red Pill type of thinking.

But hear me out.

I have known women who hate sex and use it as a weapon, a reward, or a bargaining chip.

“Real women make your dick hard, not your life.”

The “agenda woman” is a common occurrence and they often tend to bring in drama… all the head games.

In this day and age of man-hating feminism, I don’t see how wanting a doll is a bad thing.

Especially if you’ve been married & divorced, loved & been let down, cheated on, lied to, taken advantage of…

…a sex doll ironically can become a viable alternative.

Our biology wants us to have as many kids as possible. To pass our genes and refusing to follow it seems to result in depression.

So why not try and trick the brain?

Whenever you’re lonely it’s pretty nice to have a doll sitting next to you.

I’m completely convinced that some more primitive part of my brain thinks that doll is a human and that has positive effects.

Everybody needs love. Everybody needs a connection. Why live without it?

You might be in a position to not have time for relationships, yet tired of walking into an empty house after a stressful day at work.

…or want to feel empowered and not have to depend on other people for your emotional happiness.

Doll doesn’t care how much money you have, doesn’t get jealous, doesn’t nag.

If you look at it from the cost & time investment perspective you’ll notice how much time you spend looking for quality girls and mostly find terrible options.

Why should you keep looking? Seems like a recipe for depression if you ask me.

Of course, nothing is more amazing than the biochemical reaction you get from a girl you are into.

But with a doll, you’ll still benefit from oxytocin releases (“the cuddle hormone” which leads to that general feeling of sunniness.

The doll becomes quite appealing after dealing with enough B.S. and some men are just trying to make the best out of their situations and biology that they were born into.

#4 — (Limited Choices) A way to beat the evolution & get a woman of your dreams you couldn’t get otherwise

What if a sex doll is your only option due to a disability, endless rejection, and limited choices?

What if you cannot find someone you like a lot and who likes you back?

You don’t want to settle for a woman you’re not attracted to and may realize that you probably will never going to find a woman up to your standards.

Sex doll fills up the emptiness and feels like beating evolution.

As one man said: “Before the doll I was lonely. I don’t feel lonely anymore.”

It’s definitely better than having no female presence in your life at all.

This is an old video but still shows that incredible shape. Just know dolls have gotten a lot better!

It definitely beats wasting your hard earned money on hookers or jerking off by yourself.

We live in an amazing time when these dolls exist, and they have the potential to bring lots of happiness into your life.

#5 — (Sexless relationships) To remove pressure from wife with low libido & not have the urge to cheat

What if you are happily married, but she’s just not interested in sex?

What if she’s tired from work & kids, and the doll can remove the pressure from her?

What if you live in long-distance relationships, still have needs, and don’t want to cheat?

You can satisfy your sexual urges & fantasies with the doll which leaves more time to just relax together and focus on other parts of your marriage.

Also, a sex doll is an easy way to experience a threesome, and can be a fun way to add variety in the bedroom.

A doll is an aid for a man with a powerful sex drive.

To sum it up:

I guess the only real hurdle is the stigma in your own mind.
Would you feel like a loser buying one? That’s the question.

Think about it.




I would say, Who gives a fuck how someone else gets off or lives their life?

Who cares what you do in the privacy of your own bedroom?

But that’s just me.

How Having Sex With A Sex Doll Looks & Feels Like In 6 Steps?

The feel of the sex doll is so lifelike, the only difference is the lack of body heat.

You can fix it by taking it to a hot bath or rolling it in electric blanket 1 hour before the action.

Here’s the process…just so you get an idea:

  • #1 — You become aroused, horny and troubled. Blood rushes to your head and penis. Dirty images rise up. But damn, Olivia you’re seeing isn’t ready to get kinky with you. Doesn’t matter, time to pull out the doll.
  • #2 — Get ready for the session. Mm, taking her to the hot bath vs waiting for an hour while the doll warms up in electric blanket..? You get her out, put in the computer chair and move to the bath.
  • #3 — Fool around & pick a position. Mm, anal, blowjob or vagina? Decisions, decisions. Oh yea…Why choose…if you can have it all? After playing with her jiggly, perky breasts you decide to stand her up and take from the behind. Ah, that ass is perfect!
  • #4 — Have sex with the doll. Fucking her hard, then switching from anal to vaginal is awesome. Plus, positioning phone with moaning audios near her head makes the experience even better.
  • #5 — Switch it up, experiment. Adding more positions adds to the realism. Let’s dry her up, put back in the chair (she’s heavy) and move to the bedroom. Have pillows, wedges handy for easier positioning. Porn is nice to play on the screen for more ideas and excitement. Kiss her, embrace that hot body, slap that perky ass.
  • #6 — The money shot & aftercare. Depending on how lazy you are you can choose to use a female condom to make cleanup a breeze. Or choose to unload on her breasts, ass…whatever you fancy. Then clean up, powder her & put back in hiding spot or leave her in the bed for cuddles. Dolls breasts make for an excellent pillow 😉

My suggestion — just have fun with it.

Sex doll is right in the middle of masturbation and sex.

When masturbating your imagination is playing the scene in the mind and pretending you’re grabbing that ass, entering her.

Well, with a doll, you are actually grabbing an extremely lifelike breast and ass.

A doll is what you make it.
We imbue life into the dolls — not the other way around.

Sure, the doll looks sexy, and it feels nice to put your willy inside it, but you KNOW you’re having sex with a pile of rubber.

Your fantasy, imagination makes the experience as real or as fake as you make it.

Some men convince themselves that she’s real, has desires and feelings.

They cater to the doll’s desires and this is how delusion becomes real.

But when you’re lonely, it’s pretty easy to drum up enjoyable fantasies.

Men’s primitive brains are easy enough to fool.

For some doll is only a fuck doll, for others, it becomes a love doll, a replacement for female companion.

It’s up to you how far you bring this fantasy.

Bonus ninja tips & positions for fucking your sex doll:

  • get sex pillows or wedges, sex furniture or use weight bench for a plethora of awesome positions.
  • for the doggy style, you’ll need support to assist the weight distribution. Support dolls upper body with pillows or posing the doll over a table or sofa also allows for doggy style (if you’ve got standing legs and tall enough doll).
  • Try the doll on top like a cowgirl — Once you get the rhythm and pose right, doll and gravity will be doing the most work for you.
  • Note that a doll can curve the spine forward and backward for better positioning.
  • Get some condoms, baby wipes, and water-based lube to help with easy clean up for lazy heavy girls.
  • When bending a joint, use a firm two-handed grip with one hand on either side of the joint. Slowly move doll between desired positions, being careful not to twist the skin unnaturally. Never pull your doll towards you by doll’s hands as this can severely damage the wrists.
  • Put the doll on her back at the edge of the bed, with her legs spread in the air, bent down at the knees. Also, you can wrap her legs around your waist and put her hands on your chest. Always works for me.

Short History To Sex Dolls & The State of Sex Robots (Real Doll in Forefront) in 2020

We’ve gone far from having a bachelor party prank blow-up dolls to having super realistic silicone play-things.

Owning one gives the feeling that you’re in a new age, at the forefront of technology. It’s scary how realistic sex dolls feel and look.

Abyss Creations, RealDolls are the leading innovators in the erotic doll industry. Keep an eye on them for future innovations.

Here’s the latest video by Matt McMullen (fans call him Leonardo Da Vagina) demonstrating how far with sex robots we’ve gone:

They’re connecting robotics with the latest developments in AI, which pretty much gives you a talking head with realistic face motions.

The most famous sex robot dolls are Samantha & Harmony. Here’s a conversation they are capable off (video is 2 years old):

It’s inspiring to see where this is going, but these dolls cost between $6000–$10,000.

Thankfully Chinese quickly catch up with a lot cheaper, yet high-quality dolls.

Many people who’ve reviewed Real Doll and compared it with $2K best Chinese sex doll maker dolls COULDN’T SEE A DIFFERENCE.

You might think that because the doll is manufactured in China, quality would be low.

But what you might not know is that almost all dolls on the sex doll market are made in China, and RealDoll is the only big USA doll maker.

How doll creation process in China looks like.

To think that first sex dolls were invented by Dutch sailors in 1600s who made masturbatory dolls from clothes…and now over 400 years later we have this is mind-blowing.

While sex dolls are still new and scoffed at by mainstream, little by little they get exposed more and more.

For example, the comedian Ryan Davis funny video talking about “Jasmine” (or is it Shakira) sex doll went viral and made men wonder “what if”:

Here she is btw, for $2K she could be yours.

However, I wouldn’t recommend getting this doll first.

She’s curvy and heavy, and won’t be practical for most guys.

I’ll explain why:

8 Things I Wish I Knew Before Buying My First Sex Doll

Frankie is one of the most popular and best pre-configured dolls.

Sex dolls probably are the most expensive sex toy you’ll ever buy (besides investing in real sex), which is the reason there are lots of scammers out there selling cheap junk.

There are lots of customization options, materials, things you should know to save the money in the long term.

Sure, you could buy a cheaper starter doll, test materials, learn it through trial and error, but who has time (and MONEY) for that?

Overview of how dolls are being made.

Read this and you’ll be able to navigate the doll minefield like a pro.

#1 — Price: How much good sex dolls cost & what kind of doll is the best value for money?

Since RealDoll by Abyss Creations is mostly on the news it might make you think that realistic life-like, life-size dolls costs between $6,000 to $10,000.

Then if you go to Amazon, Aliexpress, etc. you might find dolls that cost only like $500 and you might think you’ve found a steal.

Here’s the reality:

  • Anything less than $1000: Don’t waste the money. Just get a blowjob machine for few hundred and you’ll have a better experience.
  • For around $1000 you’ll get a 100cm or shorter doll that’s made from TPE material
  • For around $1500 you’ll get around 150cm from TPE or Silicone
  • For around $2000 to $2500 you can get a life-size highest quality silicone doll.

On Amazon/Aliexpress you’ll just find cheap knock-offs that rarely will look anything like in the picture and won’t last long.

They are just a waste of your hard-earned money.

Payment plan: Several sex doll shops have started offering payment plans for the dolls. You could take, for example, a $2K loan with a three-year payout of approx $80/mo.

Who are the best-known sex doll manufacturers?

Besides RealDoll company that sells their high-end dolls separately, all other sex doll shops pretty much sell all the same Chinese brand dolls.

It’s helpful to know the top manufacturer names:

  • Real Doll — are the innovators of the industry. The oldest and best-known love doll makers.
  • WM Dolls — made the first affordable TPE sex dolls. Previously all dolls cost $8,000–$10,000 till WM came around. The most popular Chinese sex doll maker.

Other popular brands are ESDoll, JY Doll, YL Dolls, 6YE Dolls (has most realistic looking holes), Z-one doll, IronTech dolls.

Just keep in mind the names, but it’s best to order from sex doll retailers to get the best customer service experience.

Sex doll retailers work closely with sex doll manufacturers, and retailers only job is to ensure great shipping, customization & a great experience for you, which is why I recommend buying from the specialized sex shops.

Look out for reviews, but here’s my take on the sex doll shops:

What are the most trusted & best sex doll websites to buy from?

After you remove the easy to spot bad sellers — obscure, “too good to be real” pricing, crappy websites with bad pictures, no reviews…

You’ll still find lots of sex doll shops with similar names that all blend together (all with similar prices and listing of dolls).

When I tried to make sense of it all, I understood that some companies even copy/paste (steal) other people reviews and in the end all of them look pretty much the same.

To filter the crap out it’s valuable to look at:

  • domain authority (how long site has been around)
  • Search traffic (Google is quite good at filtering bad results)
  • overall traffic (SimilarWeb is quite accurate at estimating overall monthly traffic to the site and is a good indicator to show popular sites)

To help you pick though I discovered few sites that stood out:

  • Sex Doll Genie  — my favorite finding. They are relatively new but stood out with the number of reviews, responsiveness (replied to my email within 2 hours), payment plans, guarantee, one of the best selections (1800 dolls) and more customization than most. Since they are small they try harder which gives you good customization process and a feeling that shipment will arrive as expected.
  • SiliconWives — a very well established brand, love their easy to remember the fun name (ironically though they have very few silicone dolls, 99% is TPE).
  • SexyRealSexDolls — popular brand, accepts payments in bitcoin, commonly referred by people as SRSD.
  • The Silver Doll — a retailer based in China with a great product listing. They speak English, Spanish, French and Italian (and surely Chinese).
  • RealDoll— we discussed them before. They are expensive, great if you can afford it, but know you’re paying lots for novelty. These dolls are not the “best bang for the buck”, but early adopters who want cool shit and are willing to pay for it will love it.
  • SexDolls — another relatively new site that is growing fast in popularity. Another good “we try harder because we’re new” option.
  • RealLoveSexDolls — another big player with a strong presence on social media channels.
  • ToyDemon — US shop for Japanese masturbators, torsos, onaholes, body parts, not complete dolls (cheaper, but not recommended if you want a real sex doll experience).

My advice?

I love the fact that SexDollGenie has super-responsive customer support, payment plan, & all the popular dolls from top manufacturers.

So the only reason to shop around on different shops would be to find a cheaper price or discount deal, huh?

Definitely. Do that, and then if you find a cheaper doll, you can request a price match from SexDollGenie.

That’s how you’ll be able to get a lower price and still get great support.

#2 — Material: TPE doll vs Silicone Doll — Which is the smarter choice?

To be honest I am surprised there’s a still discussion about it.

In general sex toy market everyone is informed that TPE is not a good material because it’s porous (not 100% cleanable, emits a gas-like odor that makes eyes irritated, and has allergy reactions to some people like itchy rashes.

After reading countless people opinions I understand that many guys simply have a sentiment for TPE dolls because they were the first affordable sex dolls.

But let’s bluntly review pros and cons of TPE vs Silicone doll.

Pros of buying TPE sex doll:

  • cheaper — this was a big reason in the past, now you can find almost the same-priced doll made of silicone (maybe $200 difference)
  • softer, cuddlier — this was the second-best argument in the past. Silicone simply was less jiggly, less soft. But this has also changed. Sanhui, JM, Z-One, and SinoDoll brand dolls are as soft as TPE doll without TPE disadvantages.
  • better selection of heads and bodies — simply because of the fact that TPE has been around longer, there is a lot bigger selection. It’s a lot easier to find a sexy doll that you’ll fall from then it is from silicone.

Cons of buying TPE sex doll:

  • it’s porous — it’s impossible to sterilize TPE. Will harbor mold and bacteria easily.
  • bad stench and allergies — TPE can irritate the skin, emits a bad smell (odor) that irritates the eyes, sometimes leaks oil.
  • attracts mold easily — TPE attracts liquid
  • delicate material, life-span is short — you’ll read a lot of finger wire problems with TPE. Not so with silicone. With TPE you need to remove all jewelry, sharp objects, even fingernails can cut into TPE. Plus, dolls are heavy and it’s hard not to bump against stuff. Broken fingers are very common. TPE doll “skin” also stains easily, must be very careful with clothing or dust.
  • sensitive to heat — you cannot take TPE to a hot bath or forget it wrapped in a heating blanket (must be cautious). TPE is flammable and would melt like candle wax in a fire. Careful with temperature.

A beautiful Z-one doll platinum silicone sex doll — Jewel.

Pros of buying Silicone sex doll:

  • requires less maintenance as TPE — Silicone fundamentally rejects water which makes it a lot less susceptible to mold. Material is more forgiving for cleaning. Also, silicone rejects dirt vs TPE that absorbs it (hard to clean).
  • can last indefinitely, can be sold used (or bought) — since you can sterilize silicone that opens doors to buying or selling used. Silicone simply doesn’t break down, tears can be fixed.
  • less delicate — Silicone doll is simply more forgiving and durable. You can bump it to things, it won’t stain easily, rejects mold.
  • not sensitive to heat — Silicone can be boiled safely, so you don’t need to worry about accidentally melting the material
  • no allergies — you’ll never hear of bad smell from platinum silicone or people having allergies from one.
  • doesn’t deform or lose shape — with TPE you need to move doll to different positions often or it will lose shape. Platinum silicone doesn’t deform.

Cons of buying Silicone sex doll:

  • a smaller selection of dolls — this is the biggest con in my opinion. No way around it, but I believe it’s only a matter of the time when people get more informed and start demanding more silicone dolls.
  • price — in general a little more expensive than TPE, but not always
  • can be sticky to touch — easy way to fix is to rub baby powder or cornstarch all over the doll (which is actually part of regular maintenance of any doll)

Final verdict: TPE or Silicone sex doll?

For a new doll owner a silicone sex doll is simply a no-brainer.
Cleaning will be a breeze, maintenance & care will be a lot more forgiving for lazy people who just want to have fun.

Plus, even if you’re not sure you can buy your dream sex doll, use it and you’ll still be able to sell it later for 2/3 of the original price.

Not so with TPE. Most people who want to sell it must give it away for practically free since it’s not safe to use as fuck doll anymore.

If you want to come up to the verdict yourself, read this thread (you must register to view it) of pro doll owners were over 100 replies they discussed pros and cons.

But I’m simply conveying what my research said, I’m not biased between TPE or Silicone.

Finally, here’s an old video (2016) comparing TPE vs Silicone doll. It’s not 100% accurate anymore though as silicone realism and “jiggle” is matching TPE point by point without having their downsides.

To me right now the ONLY real difference is that silicone is a LITTLE BIT pricier, but the benefits FAR outweigh the small increase in price.

Just eh…the variety of silicone dolls could be better 🙁

#3 — Weight: Prepare for the heaviness & storage of the doll

Most new doll owners don’t really understand how heavy the realistic sex doll gets.

If you’re buying a life-like, life-size doll, you’ll get 70–110lbs (30–50kg) of dead-weight that you’ll need to figure out how to manipulate and move around.

Fulfill your BBW fantasy with Adelaide sex doll (but she’s over 100lbs!)

One thing is storage, which you should think about BEFORE the doll arrives.

But an understanding of the weight is crucial.

You may think, 72lbs….pfff, who cares, that’s nothing!

Well, you’re wrong.

72lbs could be nothing for a bench-press, but mixed with 5.5" (166cm) body and 72lbs of dead weight…IS NOT.

If you haven’t seen a gym since high school… Well, let’s just say you should go to the gym and do some heavy-lifting to tone up.

So now that you appreciate the weight, I would really not recommend you to buy curvy, big ass sex dolls that will weigh around 110lbs (50kg) but look instead at the petite doll that will weigh around 72lbs (33kg).

Here’s a comparison for you in 5l bottles…

So if you like curvy doll can you imagine carrying 10 uncomfortable 5l bottles around the house?

Even with a petite doll, it will still be a challenge.

But at least now you’ll be prepared upfront.

I don’t recommend going the opposite route either though.

Mini-dolls that weigh 10–20 kg and are 100cm height, won’t give you the real sex doll experience either.

Blowjob-machine or life-size doll. Those are the choices.

Here are the best ideas for moving the doll around:

  • ^Learn the Firearms carry^ — this is how firemen carry an unconscious person out from danger. This is the easiest way to carry a person.
  • Bridal carry — for short distances you can put the doll in a sitting type position and carry like you would carry a bride.
  • Use a computer chair with wheels — chances are you have one or you can buy a cheap rolling chair for this.
  • Get a wheelchair — a bit more expensive, but very practical to move around heavier doll
  • Flat cart trolley — it’s commonly used to transport heavy office or construction materials, a great solution for doll too.

  • A beautiful, light-ish doll Annie is a great compromise on weight.

    #4 — Height: How to pick the right height for a most realistic experience

    For real women, it’s fine to be shorter because of spine and positions, but for a doll, it may be too small even at 165cm!

    Having too short doll will bring down immersion quite a bit.

    Keep in mind that dolls are not real people, thus having one similar height as yourself will make life with it a lot easier and more enjoyable!

    If you get a taller doll that is your height, it will open you up for any position — standing up, kneeling, or laying down.

    For example, I’m 183cm, so I would be looking for as close to 180cm, 5"6"+ doll as possible.

    I understand that height, weight, looks & material will make choices limited, but that’s where you can talk to sex doll retailers and ask for possible customization.

    A helpful way to understand the height is to google famous pornstar heights, watch them in the videos and it will be a lot easier to imagine.

    For example, 150cm dolls are very popular and you’ll find that the world’s shortest pornstars (NSFW) are between 150–160cm.

    Look how tiny they are!

    Here’s the tallest pornstars (NSFW) in 170–180cm range for comparison.

    As you see, unless you’re really short yourself, having a taller sex doll will have plenty of advantages.

    #5 — How realistic is the sexual experience, and can you use a sex doll for anal, blowjob, vaginal sex?

    All life-size sex dolls have three holes that you can use.

    Only smaller dolls under 100cm might have only vagina hole without butthole because simply there is no space for it.

    As for realism — it’s incredible. You need to use lube and warm it up, but other than that if you close your eyes it feels just like the real thing or even better.

    I even read the review from a man how has been with hundreds of “real” women in his life. He said that it took him forever to cum with real girls; it took only a few minutes with his doll Aino.

    This video gives a great overview of how all holes look like (basic doll without any upgrades):

    The biggest non-realistic part is the mouth. The blowjob feels great, but doll’s face deforms when you’re “thrusting” it.

    Get “Enhanced Mouth” upgrade if you want to experience more life-like kissing and oral playtime.

    The enhanced mouth comes with juicier lips, soft tongue and ribbed throat for more intense deep-throating feeling.

    If you’re looking for more anatomically correct holes — WM, YL, OR, Sino, DS or Irontech dolls are the ones to look at.

    Also with butt for some dolls you can add buttocks gel implants (upgrade) that feels incredibly realistic and looks wonderful when you crawl in bed.

    Both enhanced mouth and buttocks gel implants are worth the extra cost if you’re into that.

    The final decision is whether to pick removable vagina or the built-in/fixed vagina.

    It’s really a matter of preference.

    Built-in vagina biggest benefit is that it gives the most realistic experience, but it’s harder to clean.

    The insertable vagina is easier to clean, but sometimes insert sucks when it’s hard to install it properly or it moves during thrusting. Also if something happens, it’s easier to replace it.

    Most ​men like the most realistic experience for all three holes:

    • Enhanced mouth upgrade
    • Buttocks gel implants
    • Built-in/fixed vagina

    But it’s up to personal preference.

    #6 — What are your doll customization options & how to choose wisely?

    When you go to doll personalization process you’ll notice there are tons of little extra choices you need to make.

    And to complicate the process even more… different brands have different personalization options.

    My advice is to go through different brands and check manually the differences, for example, Z-one doll brand offers tattoo upgrades on the doll.

    But here’s the most important bits that you should be extra careful to think about:

    • Standing legs (customise feet) — it costs extra, but a doll that easily falls over is not worth your money. Standing feet adds 3 screws that extend from the footplate through the sole of the feet. You’ll be thankful that you got standing feet so doll is not limited to only sitting down. It’s easier to dress and clean the doll while it’s standing. The only downside is that bolts are very hard on pantyhose, nylons or even thin socks.
    • The body type & breast size — We discussed the weight downsides of BBW type sex dolls, but still it’s crucial that you choose the most attractive body shape for you. You can buy different heads ($300–500) later (i know it sounds creepy), but you cannot change the body. Men are visual creatures, it’s all about the looks — pick something that you LOVE, not like.
    • The wigs — here’s the thing about a hairstyle: the longer the hair, the more effort it will take to keep them tangle free and looking good. Simple shorter hair may be less problem option. As for material, some wigs have a chemical smell, so if you’re not satisfied with the wig you got check Amazon for cheap & great wig deals.
    • Pubic hair — unless you absolutely don’t love pubic hair, I would suggest going without, it will be less messy.
    • Makeup — If you’re planning to use cosmetics yourself to change the look of your doll, make sure you specify “no makeup” in order notes. Liquid eyeliner and powdered cosmetics work well on sex dolls.
    • Heater function and moan upgrades are not worth it. — you’ll be better served if you simply get an electric blanket on Amazon for $40 as even heating option doesn’t warm all body parts. As for moans, just put phone behind doll’s head or buy small Bluetooth speakers and insert it in the doll’s mouth for realistic experience.
    • Shrugging and standard shoulders — it’s supposed to look more realistic for photos, I don’t see a point in paying extra for them, they really don’t add anything important in functionality.
    • Buying a shemale, tranny sex doll — you don’t need to buy a separate doll for that, you can simply buy a transgender penis insert in accessories or you can check strapless strapon dildos.

    Okay, so these are the big decisions. I really recommend you reach out to customer support of the doll company upfront and ask all specific questions.

    You’ll be able to get pictures and make sure you really get what you love. And you shouldn’t settle for anything less if you’re dropping $2K for a sex doll.

    #7 — How long dolls last? How does the purchase process look like? Returns, warranty, selling the doll?

    TPE dolls must be carefully maintained, but the body won’t last longer than a few years.

    Silicone dolls are much more forgiving and will last forever unless you’re really careless with cleaning, moving it.

    The best thing is that you can actually sell used silicone doll (unless it’s heavily damaged). There are several doll forums that deal with it.

    Market value for used TPR doll is practically zero because of it’s porous nature.

    How does the purchase process look like?

    This is a pretty common experience between all sex doll shops.

    Depending on customizations you’ll require on average it takes about 3–6 weeks for the doll to be delivered.

    Usually, before sending the doll out you’ll be able to get a factory picture to ensure everything is as ordered.

    Then you should be able to get a tracking number to track your order delivery

    As for the returns and warranty, most sex doll retailers don’t help you much afterward.

    This is why I like SexDollGenie the most. This is where they shine.

    Genie guarantee states that if there is any mistake with your order (defects etc.) they will either fix the issue (at no cost to you) or replace the doll for free.

    Also during the ENTIRE lifetime of your doll, you’ll receive support from them on how to repair doll when something goes wrong. It will be mostly in the form of advice (short email/video tips on how to do it).

    Please read their guarantee page carefully as there a lot more important details. Plus, check this page on shipping, import, returns, and packaging.

    Just keep in mind that once doll arrives you need to inspect it carefully for any flaws. The Genie guaranty of free replacement and no cost repair (if it’s their fault) applies ONLY if the doll is UNUSED.

    #8 — The first night: having the right expectations

    Expect that the first night might be uncomfortable and might feel weird at first.

    It’s a discovery process. You need to have a good imagination and fantasy to blow the life into that doll.

    If you enjoy playing with sex toys and being in charge during sex, it won’t be that hard to come up with positions and fantasies.

    Make sure you get the doll warm — hot bath (if silicone) or electric blanket is a must. Put on some baby powder to soften dolls skin and make it smooth to touch. Add your favorite female perfume to doll’s clothes.

    Put on some porn if you’re lacking the ideas for positions. It will be a learning curve to find the best angles and move the doll around.

    Also, understand while for many men doll is simply a fuck doll… if you start caring for it, imagining it has needs, cleaning it, putting on makeup, lingerie, braiding the hair… you may get attached to the doll at an emotional level.

    Our primitive men brain are easy enough to fool, which is great for sex and the bigger fantasy you play out, the more enjoyable delusion might become.

    Just be aware of this happening.

    It will help to fix your loneliness and oxytocin and other neurotransmitters release from cuddling will add to your happiness.

    One of the tallest silicone BBW dolls — meet Akira.

    Some men build the whole fantasy world with their dolls. To them, they are a magical creature.

    It’s up to you how far you want to go.

    Just give it time and have fun with it.

    Doll is what you make it. Not the other way around.

    The Best Life-Like & Life Size Sex Dolls For Men: How To Pick The Right Doll For You (Price vs Value)

    I won’t go much into the details because the looks of the dolls are highly subjective.

    Everyone is attracted, aroused to different things. But I just wanted to map out the options out there.

    Really, if you can imagine it, chances are there is a doll-like that created for you.

    Here are the most popular categories:

    #1 — Young, Petite & Flat Chest Sex Dolls

    This is the category I would recommend you to focus on.

    These dolls will be 140cm and upwards height (go as close to your height as possible), but light enough to move around without too much effort.

    It’s also easier and cheaper to find clothes for these kinds of realistic sex dolls as the proportions are realistic.

    Admittedly it’s a challenge to find super beautiful silicone dolls, but for that reason, I would recommend you to customize the body + head yourself.

    Look at the pictures as inspiration, a canvas.


    #2 — BBW Sex Dolls — Curvy, Big Ass, Big Tit Dolls

    If you like chubby sex dolls, big breasts, MILF type of women, this is the category.

    I warned you though that I would say that 60 pounds is maximum for a sex doll and these big dolls are extremely heavy and hard to move.

    Jasmine is 46kg, 101.41 lbs weight!

    And Jasmine sex doll leads the way… she’s amazing, just HEAVY!!! (find here).

    But if it’s your fetish, and you’re aroused to it, you’ll need to find a way.

    A wheelchair might be the best option for moving that kind of doll.

    #3 — Ebony or Black Sex Dolls

    Yep, you can get all body colors you like.

    You can specify the tan shades in personalise settings, but if you want a completely black doll, you need to look for it.

    158 cm silicone sex doll Tyra with 64lbs is a great choice.

    The upside is that you don’t need to worry about staining doll’s skin with dark clothing. You can go wild here.

    #4— Asian or Japanese Sex Dolls

    A Japanese sex doll is a true Geisha and even I being European find certain attraction and exotic to Asian girls.

    This Japanese doll Nell is both tall and light, made from silicone.

    They just look so innocent and angel-like.

    #5 — Hentai & Anime Sex Dolls

    If you’ve enjoyed Hentai type movies there is a way to bring that dirty anime girl to reality. Sex doll makers have made sure of it.

    Luo is so innocent looking anime silicone doll, outfits will make all the difference.

    Dress them up in the girly clothes and bring your fantasy to life.

    Here the biggest difference is in the face, so feel free to customize your own body + head combination.

    #6— Furry, Fantasy, Alien, Futanari or Pregnant Sex Dolls

    Yes, really.

    You can find a vampire, Avatar-themed, elf or even futanari type sex dolls.

    As it comes for celebrity dolls, only Asa Akira has a famously alike made doll, but with enough creativity and research, you can find a doll that’s quite similar to the woman you’re attracted in real life or your fantasies.

    #7— Shemale or Tranny Sex Dolls

    As I mentioned before, there is not much sense to buy a shemale doll and limit yourself from the extra hole.

    Basically, all sex doll retailers sell transgender penis insert as add-on to any doll.

    If you want the most realistic dildo insert, however…consider RealDoll attachment. It costs around $500 but because of the dual density silicone they use, you won’t be able to see the difference from the real thing!

    I am serious! RealDoll is original makers or RealCock, the most realistic dildo in the world.

    #8 — Gay Sex Dolls or Male Dolls for Women

    Okay, it’s a different case if you actually want a male sex doll.

    While the market for male sex dolls is much smaller, there’s more than enough options for you!

    TPE male sex doll Charles has interchangeable penis insert too.

    #9 — Cheap Sex Dolls “Starter Dolls”

    Okay, finally let me say that I DON’T RECOMMEND any of these options if you are looking for a realistic sex doll experience.

    Yes, they are a lot cheaper, but they won’t give anything close to the experience that life-like sex doll would give you.

    This is the middle ground between cock milking machines that do work for you, but…

    My suggestion is to either go for a cheap blowjob machine or $2K range sex doll. Everything in the middle will be just a disappointment.

    Here’s the overview of alternatives:

    • Yes, there are tiny, mini sex dolls in 100cm heigh range that cost around $1K. They feel weird and like having sex with a teen. Plus, because of the small size, there are very few positions you can use that mini doll for.

    She’s light, has small, perky tits and affordable price ($1.5K), Lia is TPE material unfortunately though.

    • Consider visiting Lumidolls sex doll brothel — if you live close to Russia, Italy, Spain or Japan you can actually go to a doll brothel and test-drive a doll experience for few hundred bucks…! 😉
    • Plush sex doll — if you’re looking for cuddling and just a body shape Meiki Plush DX could be an option for $250. You can stick Fleshlight (I recommend to do your research on the best fleshlight sleeve) or onahole in the hole and with a very vivid imagination, you might trick your mind.
    • Inflatable blowup sex dolls — it’s basically a plastic balloon that has vaginal and oral openings that you blow up into the vague shape of a woman. Talk about an unfulfilling, unsatisfying and COMPLETE waste of time. I’d rather jack off, but you can get one for $100 range as a prank I guess.

    • Sex doll torsos — I don’t see a point in these either. Men are visual creatures and you cannot really LOOK at it. Sex dolls idea is that psychologically your brain will reward you more if you can feel an entire person there that accurately will simulate what sex feels like. But if you find it attractive and are ready to drop $150-$200, then this Thrust Pro Elite is the better option with ass & vagina openings and bubbly butt to grab onto.

    Finally, the last option is to buy a used silicone sex doll.

    At the end of the article, I will link to popular doll forums and communities where they have a Buy/Sell doll section.

    But before that please read this thread from DollForum on Do’s and Don’ts of buying a used doll (register to view).

    It’s not a bad option if you’re on a budget as you can completely sterilize a silicone doll.

    However, you won’t probably find the doll of your dreams. You’ll get the doll of other man’s dreams.

    For most, it’s a deal-breaker, but for some men, they collect many sex dolls and buying a used silicone doll is a goldmine for them.

    A perfect balance of height & weight. Check for sexy, undressed photos.

    Sex Doll Care: Cleaning, Storage, Clothing

    First of all, be prepared that the most fragile parts of the doll’s body are:

    Having a repair kit (glue and tools) handy is smart:

    • fingers — over time wires might start sticking out (especially with TPE dolls), the solution is to simply push them back and try not to spread fingers in unnatural positions. Finger issues typically can be avoided with careful positioning of hands.
    • fingernails and eyelashes coming off — these parts are very delicate so be prepared for that to happen and the solution is to simply glue it back with TPE glue (for TPE) or silicone glue for silicone.
    • prepare for stiff joints at first — be gentle when moving the doll’s joints initially. They will be stiff at first but will loosen up after some time.
    • tearing — this mostly happens when spreading doll legs too much and you might tear the vagina area. It’s also not a serious issue, you can simply glue it together, many sex dolls will come with a mini repair kit.

    Sex Doll Cleaning and maintenance:

    Before you use the doll for the first time you should wash and clean it.

    After that, you should clean it after every usage.

    If you’re lazy to clean, consider using a female condom. They are re-usable and cleanup is a snap. Just rinse it out, turn it inside out, and hang up to dry for the next time.

    Always use a water-based lubricant. Oil-based lubricants will break down silicone.

    For ease of cleaning, I suggest you buy the tools, dolls are awkward to clean it without them.

    If you allow moisture to sit in the vagina, it will develop an odor.

    Cleaning looks like:

    • rinse the vagina with soapy water or toy cleaner (it’s best if you get simple douche bulb for it)
    • air dry it up — use paper towels or tampons (really great absorption).
    • The outside of the doll can be wiped down with a damp cloth, then apply cornstarch to prevent doll from getting sticky (baby powder is not recommended since it leaves smell)
    • then store it in low-moisture, low-sunlight area to prevent materials from fading and getting smelly (TPE especially)

    This brings us to the storage.

    What’s the best way to store a sex doll?

    If you can afford, just leave her laying in the bed. She will patiently wait for you until the next time you want her.

    You can also store her under your bed, especially if you get a nice storage bed.

    Sex doll retailers also sell a closet hook kit but keep in mind that you need a very sturdy frame to hang your doll.

    Finally, you can simply leave doll lying or sitting down, but you need to make sure you move the doll to a different position every few days to avoid flat spots developing in buttocks, legs or breasts.

    Another solution is to simply leave doll on something squishy like a beanbag, or bed or mattress.

    Sex Doll Clothes

    Adding sexy clothes will make the experience with dolls each time fresh and will add a lot to the realism.

    This is the only ongoing expense with dolls, but it’s fun 🙂

    Keep in mind that the smaller the doll, the harder it will be to find clothes for her. Same goes for unrealistically BBW doll.

    For most dolls, the best size with will be USA XS size, Asian S size.

    I recommend buying clothes that are either very stretchy like yoga wear…

    …or are designed to be baggy, otherwise, you might end up being a bit tight in some places and too loose in other places.

    Here are some ideas about what to buy:

    • stretchable lingerie is a must, crotchless panties,
    • stockings, pantyhose or garter belts
    • gym wear, school outfit, evening gown. I like DDLG clothing.
    • the female perfume you love (this will add a lot to immersion)

    It’s surprisingly fun to dress her up and use the doll as a model.

    Just start ​browsing and have fun with it. Alternatively, the thrift shop is always an option 😉

    The only warning is to avoid dark clothing on dolls skin, as it will cause to leave marks. Silicone has less problems with it, but it’s best to stick to lighter color clothes.

    The Best Sex Doll Forums & Communities To Find Like-Minded Men

    Tons of people get a doll in order to use it for sex only…

    However, they become surprised later how they start getting attached to them.

    They start having fun taking pictures with it, posing and start looking for like-minded people.

    If you want to talk to other doll owners and ask them questions without the bias that sex doll sellers might have…

    These are the best choices:

    • Doll Forum — this is the biggest doll community with over 60,000 members. It’s your gold-mine for conversations, pictures, advice, selling dolls, etc.
    • OurDollCommunity— a smaller community (around 5,000 members) that sprouted as an alternative to DollForum which for some has become too commercial because they are vetting the good dolls manufacturers and shops. Some feel mistreated there so they go elsewhere.
    • UKLoveDollForums — with almost 7,000 members this is another great place across the ocean with a small, yet close community.
    • Sex Dolls Subreddit— I love Reddit, so it’s nice to just browse through interesting conversations, sexy pictures, and fun doll videos. It’s very easy to filter popular and hot conversations there.

    Bringing It All Together

    Ugh, …it’s been a long read and I apologize.

    I wanted to make this the one-stop-place for new doll owners… and that required a massive guide.

    If you benefited from it, the only thing I ask you is to spread the word — share it around, give it to someone who might benefit from it.

    Thank you and welcome to the amazing world of sex dolls!
