Silicone sex doll or TPE sex doll ?

When buying a sex doll, one of the most difficult decision is the choice of the material of the doll: TPE (Thermo Plastic Elastomer) or silicone?

Silicone, the material traditionally used for realistic sex dolls, has undergone many improvements in recent years.

Silicone is a mixture of silicone polymer with carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. TPE is a newer material. This material is cheaper to produce, that’s why TPE dolls are generally less expensive than silicone dolls.

TPE is a mixture of plastic and rubber. The quality of the TPE may vary from one manufacturer to another.

The TPE becomes more and more popular. Probably partly because of its lower price, but also because the touch feeling is softer than silicone.

Here, we only sell high quality TPE sex doll, for an optimal aesthetic and qualitative result.
