How Much Is A Sex Doll in 2022?: A Detailed Breakdown Of All Doll Costs

A quality, life-size sex doll requires serious money and commitment. That’s why I’m here to get down to the nitty-gritty of sexdoll prices so you find the right one within your budget.

Getting a sex doll is no small investment, and if you’ve been browsing around, you probably already noticed that.

So, the question is: How to get the most BANG for your buck (pun intended)? 

Whatever your budget, you can find something to have a good time with. To make matters easier for you, I made this handy guide.

Let’s take a look at what’s out there and see just how much the expense can be. 


Entry Level: What can you get for under $1000

So, you can’t spend too much but still want to get yourself something fun. Or maybe you’re not sure if the sex doll experience is for you, so you want to do a little test drive before you commit to a bigger purchase.

In any case, there are some good options for under 1000 bucks you can go for.

You may not be able to get a full-sized love doll, but you can get a TORSO. Some of them even have heads attached.

The other option is getting a BODY PART like an ass. Or maybe even a foot if you’re into the fetish scene.

They’re easier to store because of their smaller size. Not only will that save you space, but it will also make it easier to hide your toys if you prefer to keep them private. 

A smaller size also means a lighter toy and easy clean-up.

We all know when you’re in the mood for playing, and also right after your session, you aren’t really in the headspace for washing and disinfecting. This task is way less annoying and a lot faster when you don’t have to carry a life-sized doll around.

If you’re interested in getting a body part or a torso, I suggest checking out Tantaly. You’ll find some very good options in the $300-$500 range.

If these half-dolls aren’t your cup of tea (disembodied body parts aren’t for everyone, I know), you might be interested in mini dolls like this one.

They’re a smaller version of the full-sized babes with intact body parts. And I do mean SMALL.

They start at 19 inches – just a tad above the size of an American Girl doll. The biggest ones are around 3 ft., or as high as a kitchen countertop.

On the downside, because of their size, most of them have only one working orifice for penetration – most often the vagina.

But on the plus side, if you need a visual to get you going, mini dolls provide that in a smaller package. Also, they still have the advantage of easier storage and clean-up compared to full-sized sex dolls.


Mid Level (Best Value): What can you get for $1500+

In this price range, you’re hitting the sweet spot. You’re not splurging for a luxurious all-extras-included doll, but you’re not making compromises either.

For $1500-$2500, you can get a life-sized realistic-looking doll from TPE or even silicone.

Remember, there are low-quality and high-quality materials. The more high-quality your TPE or silicone doll is, the more expensive it will be.


TPE Dolls

TPE dolls are cheaper, and the material mimics human skin better than silicone, so you get both a bargain and a very life-like experience.

The only downside is that the material is porous, so it requires more effort to keep it hygienic. In addition, the pores hold on to moisture, which is perfect for bacteria growth. Therefore, TPE dolls should be thoroughly washed with special cleaning agents and carefully dried.

TPE might not be the best choice for vulva owners because of these concerns. Vaginas are very sensitive and can get irritated or infected easily.

Also, TPE doesn’t have a long life span. So no matter how well you take care of it – the material will wear off. 

However, it will last you at least 5-7 years! That’s nothing to sneeze at.

The realistic feel that only TPE provides will also make penetration more pleasurable, so it’s up to you to decide if having to replace the doll down the line bothers you. 


Silicone Dolls

Silicone dolls are more expensive – mostly in the $2.5-4K range, although you may find some cheaper ones that are just not drawn in great detail or have fewer customization options. The price depends mostly on how much material is used.

Curvier dolls require more material and are thus more expensive. 

On the plus side, silicone will last you virtually a lifetime with proper care and will save you money in the long run.

The material is non-porous, which means it can be completely disinfected. That will allow you to resell your doll after a while if you choose to do so.

This also makes it the better choice for vagina owners. Silicone is less likely to cause irritation or infection after it’s disinfected properly.

Silicone also allows for a more realistic LOOK of the doll, so if you’re interested in taking photos of your companion or the visual aspect is just important to you, silicone is the way to go! 


Can’t I get a cheaper full-sized doll?

Uhm… No. Sorry.

You won’t really be able to get a quality full-sized realistic doll for less than $1500.

If you see a price that’s too good to be true, you’re probably right. 

Don’t be tempted by ridiculously cheap full-sized dolls. You will most likely end up getting scammed one way or another and losing a bunch of money. It’s just not worth the risk. 

To avoid any mishaps, you should pay attention to where you’re shopping. We recommend Sex Doll Genie – you’ll find a lot of awesome dolls in the mid-level range and up!

There is something for every taste. No matter your gender or preferences, I’m sure you’ll find a babe or dude that is just your type.

Also, the folks at Sex Doll Genie are very attentive. They will answer any and all questions you may have and help you with any issues during the purchasing process. 


High End: For niche dolls & basic AI features ($3-5K range)

So, you want something fancier, huh?

You can find some REALLY COOL fantasy dolls in the $3-5K price range.

If you ever thought about what it’s like to get in bed with an elf, a hentai character, or even an alien, this is the closest you can get.

(Unless aliens actually come and visit us. Honestly, it’s been one hell of a year. Nothing is off the table.)

In this price range, you’ll also find some dolls with extras or even AI features.

You can get things like hyper-realistic painting and skin texture or gel implants to make the doll feel softer and more life-like. Articulated fingers and an extra flexible skeleton will help the doll get more easily into different positions.

Dolls that you can customize in great detail also tend to cost more. 

For over $3000, you can also get a doll with some basic AI features. For example, they may be able to move on their own, move their eyes, blink, heat up to body temperature, and more. Some even moan when you touch them in specific places!

All of this provides a more life-like feel for a more immersive experience.


Luxury Choices: $6000 & up

If you’re looking to splurge and want THE ULTIMATE love doll experience, this is the price range you should be looking at.

Here will find the most life-like dolls. Not only do they look real, but they have a more advanced AI and can INTERACT with you.

This is the MOST IMMERSIVE experience you can get short of getting it on with a real girl or guy.

If you’re looking for the most technologically advanced dolls, you should take a look at Realdoll X.

These dolls aren’t just dolls, but FULL-BLOWN ROBOTS. Talk about AWESOME.

They are made of silicone since it’s a more durable material. TPE won’t be worth it for the advanced AI incorporated in the dolls since it will get damaged in a few years.

Don’t worry – the manufacturer has done everything to make the silicone not only look realistic but feel as life-like to the touch as possible.

The dolls can change facial expressions, move their head and eyes, blink, speak, and interact with you.

The AI software is customizable, so you can create a personality for your doll, control its voice, and so on. There is also an option to hook your doll up to an app on your phone. 

You’re already using your phone for almost everything else, so you might as well make use of the technology for your intimate fun, right? 

The Realdoll X dolls also have all the customization options non-AI dolls have so that you can create your perfect companion.

And what’s probably the coolest feature of all – they can actually REACT TO YOUR TOUCH! 

And not in the basic way some other AIs might. These dolls detect touch, movement, and transition from arousal to orgasm.

Honestly, when it comes to sex dolls, you won’t get a more immersive experience than that. 

Note that this kind of realism and advanced technologies come at a price. The base package starts at $6000 and easily goes up to $20K. 

But hey. That’s a completely reasonable price when you think about it – after all, you’re purchasing your very own life-like ROBOT. And a sexy one at that.

Of course, for big purchases like these, the manufacturer offers insurance. You will pay extra but not as much as you would have to pay without insurance if something goes wrong.


FAQ:

Why are sex dolls so expensive?

These are not the blow-up monstrosities of the past made by machines and of cheap plastics.

Realistic dolls require better and more expensive materials to make penetration actually feel enjoyable.

The most popular are TPE and silicone, with silicone being the pricier of the two. On top of that, there is a metal skeleton in the doll, so it can move in all the right places and hold a pose.

The cost of the materials adds up. 

Dolls like these are also made mostly by hand. All the details like skin texture, makeup, nails, etc., require human attention.

Realistic sex dolls are made by artists and sculptors who work on every detail. These specific circumstances also make the prices of the dolls go up.

The more life-like you want your doll to be, the more customization options it has, and the more material the manufacturer uses, the pricier your purchase. 


How much does a real doll cost?

To sum everything up:

With sex dolls, you generally get what you pay for.

If you’re looking for a life-sized love doll, the lowest you can do is $1500. But, of course, the doll won’t have premium features like hyper-realistic painting or AI or as much customization as more expensive options.

But you will get a quality doll and a companion you can have tons of fun with.

Prices below that for full-sized dolls are most likely a rip-off. Don’t risk wasting your time and money. 

If you can’t afford $1500 or more, go for a torso, body parts, or a mini-doll. They will also bring you a lot of pleasure, and I’m certain you won’t regret your purchase.

If you want to splurge on the ULTIMATE love doll, the most expensive ones are $6000+ and are basically very sexy silicone robots. But, if you want a totally immersive and life-like experience, this is for you!


Conclusion

Today’s sex dolls are certainly way more expensive than the traditional blow-up dolls we know and… don’t really love. (Unless that’s your thing, that is, I won’t judge.)

But they’re also way more life-like and durable and will make your fantasies come to life!

For all you guys, gals, and non-binary pals, there is something for your taste and budget. Be patient, and you’ll find it.
