What Is A Silicone Sex Doll?

Dec 29, 2021

To answer that question above, first we need to talk about what a sex doll is. Since ancient times, people have looked for a solution to loneliness and/or a way to fulfill an individuals sexual needs. Seventeenth century Dutch sailors, who were at sea for many months, used to build extremely primitive sex dolls for intimacy and social contact. Luckily in modern times, innovation and technology have reigned supreme and we now have full size silicone sex dolls available to anyone at the click of a button.

Silicone sex dolls look lifelike, feel realistic, and are very durable compared to their TPE counterpart. Because of this, it's no surprise that silicone is the best possible material you can find to make things that go into your body...or things where, ahem, your body goes into.

Silicone or polysiloxane is a polymer made up of siloxane. They are usually colorless oils or rubber-like materials. Silicones are used in just about everything - sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medicine, cooking utensils, medical devices, automobiles, sex toys, and electrical/thermal insulation. Some other common forms include silicone oils, silicone grease, silicone rubber, silicone resin, and silicone caulk. It is a highly stable component that is chemically inert and resistant to water or oxidation. This means that silicone can be used to make pretty much anything at all - from commercial applications to lifelike sex dolls - and we are certainly thankful for that!

Sex dolls made of high quality silicone have been the go to choice for anyone looking to get themselves a quality companion. Keep in mind that a silicone doll is generally more expensive than TPE. But honestly, the expense is worth it if you only want the best for yourself.

Advantages of Silicone:

  • Realistic appearance: Silicone sex dolls look incredibly like a real woman. They're molded perfectly and beautifully to give you an authentic feel. I mean, just look at these sex dolls! Not just the vaginal, oral, and anal cavities but even the faces of silicone sex dolls are extremely realistic! Since silicone is a harder material than TPE, it allows the designer to create facial features, vaginal and anal detailing that look more lifelike than TPE.
  • Durability: As mentioned above, silicone is a harder material and is more resistant to damage, aging, and staining. You can boil it for 10 minutes over a flame and all it'll do is sterilize the silicone. Your silicone sex doll will last you a really long time as long as you take very good care of her.
  • Clean Up: Silicone can be sterilized which is why it is used in so many sex toys and medical devices. Silicone is also non-porous which makes it easier to clean than it’s TPE counterpart. TPE needs to be cleaned rigorously and then dried out to prevent mold from forming.
  • Safety: Both Silicone and TPE are both safe materials to use. Both are hypoallergenic and easy to clean.

Disadvantages of Silicone:

  • Price: As we mentioned before, Silicone sex dolls are more expensive than TPE but can be well worth it given the value and performance they provide.
  • Material: Silicone is a harder material that allows the doll makers to sculpt better details around the face, vagina, and anus. If you’d like the breasts on your silicone doll to jiggle, make sure you add the gel breast option.
  • Weight: As expected with a harder material, silicone sex dolls generally tend to be heavier. Make sure to keep this in mind if you have trouble moving heavy objects. In this case, it may make sense to go with TPE material and or a smaller doll.

Final Thoughts:

As you can see, silicone works incredibly well for sex dolls and is a great choice for many potential customers. When you are deciding which material to choose, keep in mind all the pros and cons listed above and how they can fit your needs.
