Choosing Your Bedroom Companion
There has been surge in the variety and availability of sex dolls in recent years.
Sex doll manufacturers have definitely upped their game too.
We’re not talking about those old unappealing blow up dolls, we’re talking about gorgeous-looking sex dolls that look almost creepily lifelike.
They have joints, their orifices have special textures and they’re covered with what feel like the softest and smoothest skin.
If you shell out the extra cash, you’ll get the option to customize these dolls however way you want to fit your preferences.
I mean, ladies, we’re reaching dangerous territories here.
With that being said, all these choices can be a little daunting if you’re shopping around and trying to find out which one is the “the right one.”
It would be shame to get something that you won’t be completely satisfied with because these can go for a lot of money.
Not only are these products very specialized, the best ones are made with top of the line materials, so they can last you a while.
Why would you even need one?
Maybe you’re like me and you’ve reached a point where the old fashioned way of masturbating just doesn’t cut it anymore.
I’m even starting to get bored with makeshift pocket pussies.
Well, a love doll, whether full size or otherwise, could be the solution to your problem.
Some of us need that “heft” and would like to feel something more substantial when jacking off.
It’s a good thing that there are these options for us that could end our frustration with solo play.
AND you’ll never have to worry about contracting any nasty STDs!
So what are sex dolls?
First of all, we have to address the taboo that surrounds this product.
Getting a love doll doesn’t automatically mean you’re a sad loser with an imaginary girlfriend.
It’s not really meant for that.
Sex dolls were made not as a replacement for an actual person.
They were made for the sole purpose of masturbation.
Nothing is ever going to substitute a relationship you can have with a human being.
There is no way you can share the same intimacy and trust that you can have a real partner because, first of all, this is an object.
It can’t talk or think for itself.
We really have to shatter this taboo because there’s nothing wrong with exploring a healthy sexual appetite.
Some gals (and guys, for that matter) think that sex dolls are a bit misogynistic.
It sort of plays into the fact that some men really do view women as mere objects.
While that’s a sad fact, I might argue that it’s better to enjoy these fantasies with actual objects and not real women.
Do you see what I’m saying?
Sex dolls are just an outlet for our frustrations and fantasies while having virtually no real consequence other than some real damage to your bank account.
However, there is really no shame in getting one of these beauties if you fully understand what you’re getting.
Now that we’ve established that it’s a sex toy, then it follows that used to mimic the sexual act.
What’s so attractive about this is that it doesn’t come with the hassles of having a wife or girlfriend.
You don’t have to be nice to it.
You don’t have to ask for sex.
This is one lady that will never ever say no.
I also have to note that there are other options if you don’t want to go for the whole shebang.
So if you’re not comfortable about having large mysterious packages shipped to your house, you don’t have to commit right away and go for the whole thing.
It just really depends on what you want and how much money you’re willing to shell out.
The very best ones that are ridiculously customizable down to the nails to the poutiness of the lips.
To state the obvious, you can customize the hair, the skin color, the size of the breasts, the shape of the pussy lips. You name it.
You can also tell if it’s high-quality if the parts are removable.
This makes clean up way easier and you also have the option to get these parts replaced.
Eventually, you’re going to want to do this after you’ve been with your doll a couple hundred times.
They won’t last forever.
They also have “skeletons” that make it so you can position it however way you want.
Just imagine the number of positions you can experiment with.
Naturally, the less expensive options won’t look as great.
If you don’t want to compromise on quality, then you could go for something “less complete,” like a torso or an ass.
Some might feel weird fucking something with a face, so this is a good option for that.
As a general rule, the more expensive it is, the higher the quality is going to be.
It’s just like with everything else.
That’s why I suggest that you invest in a good one and stay away from those sketchy websites that offer something that’s obviously not going to perform as it is advertised.
Do you think you should get one?
It could be likely that you’d be happy with something more compact.
But if you’re not the type that would question your life choices, having this thing lying around the house, then you should definitely get one.
Especially if you’re feeling a bit sexually frustrated or bored.
I seriously think anyone would get one anyway if it didn’t cost as much as a down payment on a good car.
Anyone who would say no to a free one, is a little weird in my book.
Here are some of the types of guys who could benefit from having a sex doll:
1. Getting a girl just isn’t an option
Let’s face it. Some guys just get easy pussy and some guys just aren’t born with the right hair and the right jawline to attract a mate.
Hell, some guys don’t even have the saving grace of humor to talk their way into it.
I guess that’s just how life goes, my friend.
But this doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun by yourself.
If this is the closest way you can get to the female body, then I’d say it’s worth it.
You’ll also have to option to create the girl of your dreams, at least when it comes to the way that she looks.
It wouldn’t be fair to deprive yourself of even just that.
2. You’re busy as a beaver
Do you barely have enough time to eat and sleep by juggling two or three jobs?
Having to deal with all of this is sure to stress you out, let alone going out, treating a girl to dinner and wooing her to get her into bed.
If you’re trying to move up in the world, where you even find the time to do that?
Well, if you’re finding this all too relatable, then getting a doll is the way to go.
Having one handy is sure to be a pleasure when you do have the moment to settle in and have a relaxing night in.
3. You have problems with commitment
Maybe that’s just one of the issues that you have to overcome or you’re a recently divorced man who is not ready to get back in the game just yet.
Either way, if you want constant sex without having to spend a fortune on dates and always having to turn the charm on for the ladies, a doll is perfect for you.
4. You have threesome fantasies that just can’t be fulfilled
It’s not unusual for a girl to not be down for a threesome.
I’ve got to hand it to the ladies.
This is not unreasonable at all.
Being in a romantic relationship is all about exclusivity.
You don’t get to share your affections unless you’re in one of those hippie open relationship type deals that never seem to work.
If you’ve got an open-minded enough girl, this could be a good compromise.
You can act out your fantasy safely without her feeling threatened by another person.
Because that’s where the problem seems to be stemming from.
It’s highly unlikely that she’s going to get jealous because of a doll.
5. You’re looking for something better than the real thing
For purely utilitarian reasons, sex dolls are the best when it comes to sensation.
No woman is ever going to have crazy textures inside her or is going to vibrate.
Vaginas pretty much all feel the same, if we’re being totally honest here.
Yes, there are some things that set an individual vagina apart like its tightness or the shape of the labia.
But overall, it’s the same silky hole we know and love.
If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more challenging or even just more stimulating, then a doll is the answer to that.
There are teams behind these products who test the best materials, the best textures, the best configurations, to ensure the best orgasms ever.
Honestly, with the amount of work that goes into these, you really get what you pay for.
Alright. Now that we’ve got the basics covered and you’re starting to feel like you should gift yourself with one of these for Christmas, then let’s explore your options here.
The standard sex doll
So you want something full and are not really keen on something that looks like a severed torso.
I got you, fam.
Let’s start with the more economical options first and work our way up, shall we?
If you’re just looking to test one out and you don’t feel ready to invest in something that would make your girlfriend cry if she ever found out about it, I suggest that you go for an entry-level doll.
Believe me, these won’t go for cheap if that’s what you were thinking
. You can spend $500 to upwards of a thousand bucks for just the entry-level model!
So rethink this if you know yourself and think that you might want to move to a higher end one down the line.
It could save you the money.
Despite being entry-level, though, for $1000, you’re getting something that won’t break and won’t look butt ugly.
They’re just not the most realistic dolls, which could be good for some folks who have an anime fetish or have a thing for that plastic surgery look.
Most of these dolls are small too.
I’m not going to say anything if you’re into that in real life.
Who knows? You might be into… midgets.
You could still play around with the proportions, though.
Even though you have a 3-foot doll, it could have D-cup breasts.
The great thing about these smaller dolls is that they’re easier to hide. So if you’re trying to sneaky about this whole thing, then go for a smaller one.
Things start to get better with mid-range dolls.
They’re more comparable to high-end dolls, but you’ll definitely see the difference in the quality of the build.
For mid-range dolls, you’ll usually get a lower grade of silicone or thermoplastic elastomer.
The problem with TPE is that it’s porous, which means it will absorb lube or sweat and this will stain your doll over time.
I think it’s also worth mentioning that it doesn’t feel as lifelike as silicone, but it’s a great material if you want something a little firmer.
Another thing to note is the build of its skeleton. Yes, it’s still going to be made of metal, but probably the lighter kind. So the heft you were looking for? Nope, you’re not getting that in this one.
If you’ve positioned your doll to do some doggy-style fun, it’s going to hold that position, but it’s not going to push against you.
It feels a lot more insubstantial and the lower quality metal will wear out faster than that of the kind you can find in a higher-end doll.
But honestly, for the price, which usually goes for about $1000-$2000, you could get some good use out of it for a year or two.
If you calculate that per day, it’s not going to be much.
Now, if you’re ballin’ and always need the best thing that’s out there, go for a luxury doll.
The reason why these dolls are so expensive is because they’re not really mass produced.
They’re really more like artisan products, the way that they’re made.
Every imaginable part of the doll, you can customize. I’m not even kidding.
You can create this doll that will suit your taste to a tee.
People are going to work on this, not a machine.
So expect that it’s someone’s job to attach every eyelash on your doll. It’s that detailed.
Apart from the artistry, you can also be sure that the materials that go into making these dolls are the very best.
The skeleton will be strong and won’t be deformed under pressure.
These dolls will stand on their own and can really take a pounding.
As they should. I mean, these beauties can go for $2000 at the cheapest.
The most beautiful and lifelike dolls could create a $10,000 hole in your pocket.
That being said, a high-end doll will last you a while.
We’re talking 5 years if you carefully maintain it.
Here, I wouldn’t blame if you if you start an imaginary relationship with it.
If you don’t have the money for a high-end doll and you can’t customize the dolls that you can afford to your liking, there are dolls that are already premade to suit some of the usual fetishes.
Whether you have a thing for big boobs or a big ass, there are some options for you.
And it doesn’t end there.
You could go for something that looks a little more mature (because fucking something that looks too young is creepy) or something that looks a little cushy.
Whatever floats your boat, bro.
If you’ve thought about it, someone has made it.
Just the torso
Again, if you don’t have the funds to get a full doll (and honestly, there’s not much you can do with a pair of legs anyway), then you might want to get something that focuses only on the goodies.
You get the vagina, the butthole and the boobs.
What more could you want?
Some guys want something to hold for that extra stimulation, so this could be the right choice for you.
Also, if you’re a missionary type of guy or you like the “prone bone” position, I would suggest that you just get this one.
It certainly gets the job done and it’s mighty comfortable.
Since it’s more compact, it’s easier to carry around the house and easier to stow away in case someone comes snooping.
Some of these come with a head, if you’re into that.
I don’t know why, but seeing and feeling some hair always gets me going.
Just the holes
Okay, maybe you want something ultra-discrete, then you might just want to get the regular pocket pussy or Fleshlight.
This is great if you find the whole concept of having a doll a little too creepy. I get it. It’s just not for everyone.
What’s great about the Fleshlight, in particular, is that it takes the realism to a whole new level by having some of their models molded out of your favorite porn stars or cam girls’ orifices.
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be with Alexis Texas or Stoya, then this is probably the closest you can get to that experience.
Having your very pocket pussy can be very rewarding because of the selection of the textures you can get.
No real woman is ever going to feel like how these Fleshlight sleeves are designed. No way.
Think of this as just a step up from your regular masturbation technique, which I’m guessing just involves some lotion and your hand.
Well, this is exponentially better than that.
So if you don’t want the bulk and you think a full-blown sex doll is too much for you, I highly recommend that you get a pocket pussy.
And if you’re thinking that this isn’t a hands-free option, you’re sorely mistaken.
There are many ways you can use a Fleshlight without using your hands.
You could wedge it in between your mattress and the box spring. You could get a mount that was specifically made to house the Fleshlight.
You could even get the Launch (their patented auto-stroker) or one of those auto blowjob machines. I swear to you, you won’t be disappointed.
Conclusion and last minute tips
Overall, I would say that having a sex doll (or parts of it) is a great addition to any bedroom.
It enhances your masturbation sessions by adding another dimension to it.
At the risk of sounding like a giddy little girl, I get a kick out of putting my dolls in sexy little outfits that my girlfriend will never wear in a million years.
This is truly the chance to be with a different girl every single night.
All it takes is just some imagination, which we’re pros at tapping into by now, considering how long we’ve been masturbating.
If you’re unsure about what kind of lubes to use with these dolls, I suggest that you always go for something water-based.
Water-based lubes are compatible with any material and won’t damage your doll.
Remember, it’s important to maintain your doll to get the most out of it.
Some dolls go with the warning that the user shouldn’t use water and soap as it damages that doll’s specific blend of skin.
If you want to “refresh” your doll, some cornstarch or baby powder will do the trick.
A quick dusting will make it feel good as new.
You also want to warm up your doll if you want to keep things realistic.
You can do this by putting “her” under an electric warming blanket.
Well, that about covers everything you need to know.
I hope that by now, you feel more equipped to shop around and make the right choice.
