In the 21st century, talking companion robots appear one by one, putting "electronic emotion" on the bright side.

Who Makes Sex Dolls?

Manufacturers of physical dolls are all over the world, among which China is the world's largest producer of adult products, accounting for 60%-80% of the global market. There are more than 2,000 manufacturers of physical dolls in China, among which old brands such as WM DOLL and EXDOLL are the leading ones, supported by emerging brands such as ZELEX Doll and IRONTECH Doll, and various new dolls are launched.

Prices The price of a high-end sex doll ranges from $1,000 to $3,000, and can even reach as high as $10,000. The difference between them lies in the material (TPE or silicone), the upgrade of functions, and the unique characteristics of each brand.

Sex Doll Customization Options

Head is mainly divided into standard head (hard head) and soft head. The hard head can be implanted hair, and its eyebrows and eyelashes are implanted; the soft head has painted eyebrows and glued eyelashes, but the soft head can open the mouth and support oral sex. Most doll brands have heads and bodies that can be separated, and single heads can be purchased. The head and body of most brands can be adapted, and M16 adapter is generally used for connection.

Hair implants/Wigs Hair implants are the artificial insertion of individual hairs into the scalp. This process requires a lot of time and effort, so the price of hair implants is relatively high. Mainly divided into real hair and synthetic hair. Human hair is softer, but breaks easily and is not easy to maintain; most customers will choose synthetic synthetic hair. The wig is worn directly on the doll's head, because there is a rubber band around it that can be stretched, so it is relatively firm when worn on the doll's head, and it is not easy to fall off.

Eye Color Eyes can directly touch the soul, and different colors of eyes can portray the facial charm of different characters. You can choose according to your favorite, generally available colors are brown, blue, purple, green and so on.

Breasts are currently available in the market as Solid Breasts, Hollow Breasts, and Gel Breasts. There is no doubt that Gel Breasts are the most realistic and softest, if you want your doll boobs to move more, Gel Breasts is the best choice. But please note that if the TPE doll is filled with jelly milk with too much milk, there is a risk of sagging and explosion during transportation.

Skeleton At present, most sex doll manufacturers on the market provide the EVO skeleton, which has a larger swing range and can make more movements. At the same time, recently, Zelex launched the EXP skeleton, which has a more flexible waist, better elbow and neck joints, and is more capable of shrugging and other movements.

Vaginas Fixed vagina looks more realistic, Removable (Insertable) vagina is easier to clean. The two are almost the same in terms of experience.

Articulated Fingers are different from the previous fingers made of wire. The upgraded technology has better joints and can do more flexible and realistic movements.
Hard Hand This upgrade increases the hardness of the silicone surface from the wrist to the fingers, making the skin less likely to be pierced by finger bones. The only thing to pay attention to is that because of the increased hardness, the tactility is relatively stiff. Other than that, they are all advantages.

How to Dress Up Your Sex Doll
 Dress a sex doll

Many Video Game Dolls now have their in-game costumes, which is great! When you put your love doll on the matching outfit, it will make you feel different. Many sex doll owners like to buy trendy clothes for their love dolls. They love to treat their sex dolls like real women, pampering them with wardrobes full of beautiful designer clothes. You may want to dress your doll in a beautiful cheongsam to show off her curvy body, or you may prefer hot and sexy bikinis in different styles.

No matter how realistic your sex doll looks, her body still resembles a mannequin. Before you can learn to dress a life-size adult doll, you may need to roughly groom your sex doll to push, pull, and dress her. The more you practice dressing and undressing your sex doll, the more you will understand how to effectively undress and change your sex doll.

Before you try to dress your love doll, brush your sex doll's skin with powder to prevent sticking.

Be aware of any sharp edges on clothing or accessories as they can easily scratch or cut the sex doll's simulated skin.

Make sure to wash all clothes before putting them on the doll. New, unwashed clothes contain dyes that can stain your doll. Be sure to wash your doll's clothing several times to remove any dye from the fabric. NOTE: Some clothes will still stain your doll after washing.
Avoid wearing dark clothes, dark clothes can stain your doll even after washing. It's best to avoid dark clothing entirely, but if you must, limit the amount of time your doll wears it. Or before wearing it, wrap a layer of plastic plastic wrap on the doll or wear a light-colored underwear first, which can better prevent staining.

Avoid tight clothing Avoid tight clothing. Dress your sex doll in clothes that fit her body type. Squeezing her into tight clothing could dent and/or scratch your doll. If necessary, remove the sex doll's head before wearing and limit wearing time.

 Makeup for sex dolls

All high-quality sex dolls come with professional makeup that beautifully defines and enhances their stunning, ultra-realistic facial features. If you want to further beautify your sex doll or use makeup for an entirely different look, we recommend choosing mineral based products that allow you to build color and definition over time. Traditional cosmetic brands with high pigment content may stain the TPE or silicone skin of the sex doll, causing deep stains.

To remove make-up from a doll's face, use makeup remover and a soft, lint-free cloth and gently wipe. You can also wash it off with TPE safe foam cleaner.

Avoid vigorous rubbing as this may cause facial makeup to come off! If you accidentally remove factory makeup from a sex doll's face, there are a few grooming products women use to reapply. You can also purchase replacement heads for your synthetic love doll.

To improve the experience for sex doll owners, some manufacturers are now exploring the use of permanent ink for aesthetically defined details, meaning the doll's facial and body makeup is permanent and cannot be easily erased. The invention is currently on the market and has already been used on some silicone dolls.

If you want your sex doll to wear stylish earrings and other jewelry accessories, you can do your own piercings. Using a thin thread or needle, carefully pierce the doll's skin. Do not use the tip of a knife or any other sharp implement. Once the earrings are in place, take extra care when handling your sex doll so they don't pull and cause the ear to snap off. You can also pierce a sex doll's navel and nipples.

How Should I Store Sex Dolls?

One of the problems that many people have is how to place them after everyday purchases or manipulation of sex dolls. I believe this issue will be resolved after you read the following guide.

1. Laying flat
It makes sense to store real sex dolls flat, but only if it's not on a hard surface. Whether it's on the bed, in a storage box or on the floor, it's essential to have a cushion of soft objects such as quilts, blankets, etc. Without this layer of protection, the figure's back could collapse forever. Especially if you bought a TPE sex doll, it is difficult to recover from dents in the TPE material.
If you don't think it's necessary, another strategy is to put a pillow on each side of the doll's waist and calves, so that the natural curve of the doll's body can be maintained when the doll is lying down, and the doll's overall body shape will remain in good shape.

2. Hanging
Hanging is the most recommended storage method, and it is also the way dolls are stored in the factory. Because the adult sex doll is equivalent to hanging in the air, its own weight will not squeeze any side. If you have wardrobes, hangers or other load-bearing shelves at home, hanging them is a good choice. It is worth noting that different brands of dolls hang in different ways. It is recommended to consult the store before purchasing to avoid damage.

3. Standing
The least recommended way to store dolls: standing!
As we all know, some of our friends will display his dolls in the living room or bedroom, or often let the dolls stand and take pictures, need to remind you that this is the wrong way to store! Remind you that the dolls you buy basically do not support standing for a long time. Even if you choose standing feet, even some high-end dolls of some brands, the manufacturer stipulates that they can only stand for a short time. Because the silicone love doll is very soft, all the weight is concentrated on the soles of the feet when standing, causing damage to the soles of the feet and even seeing the metal skeleton inside, making the doll even appear incomplete.

4. Sitting
Sitting on the sofa may seem safe, but it is not. Likewise, standing can cause the soles of the feet to tear, while sitting can cause weight to be concentrated on the hips, causing cracks around the hip bones. If you need to sit on the sofa, it is recommended that you add a pillow or cushion to your hips and waist to give your love doll a cushion.
The above is SexyMalena's knowledge about doll storage and placement. I hope we can store our dolls well and prevent them from being damaged.
