The purpose of this series is to give first-time torso buyers some information to help them make a good decision when buying a torso.

In part one, we had a weighty discussion about the importance of weight when shopping for a realistic male masturbatory device like a sex doll or torso. You can find that article here.

Weight.

– I know I just talked about it, but it is really important. More important than how the toy looks.

– Using weight as your first criteria will help you set your price point too. Heavier = more realistic vs lighter easier to manage/hide.

Today we are going to use our senses to evaluate the features of sex torsos and dolls. Mostly we will be talking about TPE (SDT dolls are made from TPE).

Here we go.

TOUCH – TPE FEEL

Toys, torsos, and dolls are all physical objects that you can touch. That’s why we want them, to touch them. So let’s talk about how they feel. The toys at our store are all a type of “TPE” what is TPE? I’m not going to waste time and repeat what you can google yourself but here is a link to the Wikipedia article. It is a kind of mix of plastic and rubber. Why is this important? Every factory uses its own blend! Not all TPE is made the same! Like pancakes, every pancake has flour and water in it, (right?) But do your pancakes have flaxseed and banana in them? Mine do. What’s my point? Even though all companies use “TPE” the exact blend of TPE will differ between products/factories in the following ways. Let us dig into it TPE.

Smell

I don’t want to lie to you, most TPE has a smell. But almost everything has “a smell”. It is not a bad smell. but it is a smell. Some companies go out of their way to reduce the smell (like SDT. Some companies add in perfume to alter/mask and improve the smell (which is nice) and others do not. Some blends are made so that the smell fades away faster than others. But there will always be a smell, metal has a smell, so does rubber.

TPE PRO TIP 1 = pay attention to what companies say about their TPE blend. Some companies take pride in their blends, others do not. Companies that take pride will go out of their way to mention it. Companies that do not will focus on price or other features. If you are sensitive to smell pay attention to what companies to say about the smell of their TPE.

TPE PRO TIP 2 = it takes about a month and or a few washes to get the smell to get to non-noticeable levels. So don’t judge the smell on the first day. Also baking soda I think has been a good help.

I am sensitive to smell and I have a toy that I don’t like using cause I can’t stand the smell. It’s wasted money. Everything else is good with the toy, but the smell is off. Am I upset? Lil bit but I’m not mad. I forget to check to ask about the smell, now I know better.

How does SDT’s Alexandra smell? Good! Actually, I liked her smell when she came. But it faded fast (which is also good). Now I can only smell it if I get really close.

TPE Touch 1 Doll Skin Texture

How does it feel when you run your fingers across it? is the skin textured? Is it art ? some torsos are only a flat surface with zero texture, which is fine, (a bit boring for the fingers) but it is fine. Not a huge deal but something to pay attention to, can you see pores? Do you care about pores?? Maybe you don’t.

TPE Care + Durability

Some TPE requires more care than others. Some TPE is more durable than others. I haven’t tested every brand, I am still new to this TPE doll world, but I know that some TPE blends are made to be so soft that they are more prone to tearing. On one hand soft is great, on the other, durability is also desired, so companies have to do a balancing act. Your role as the customer is to find the right balance for you. This durability has a major impact on how long the toy will last and how much work you will have to do to maintain it.

Some TPE blends leak more oil than others and will require more maintenance. Check with your brand to get a sense of how much oil and care your toy needs. In my experience with Alexandra, she doesn’t oil at all. (never seen it). So she doesn’t require much oil (but she still does some oil).

PRO TIP! = Every blend of TPE needs to be cleaned after each use to prevent mould. This is for all types of TPE regardless of if they are “medical grade”. Clean your stuff. #dont be gross.

Touch – TPE Elasticity

I am finding it hard to describe what my hands experience in words,but different blends “squeeze” and “squish” and “jiggle” differently. TPE generally feels like a rubber trying to feel like flesh, it’s a combination of squishy, rubber and gel. Nice. Every company again is different.

Once you get your first toy from a company, just think about how it feels, like the material, how it responds to your squeezing and make a note if you like it. if you do I suggest making a note of it and buying from that company again when/if you need to upgrade. OR you could shop around and test which feel you like. I haven’t encountered a TPE blend that I thought was bad, they have all been good to great, so I wouldn’t worry too much about this, but when you find something you really like, make a note.

Skeleton

All skeletons for dolls have the same purpose; to allow your toy to hold the desired shape and position. Very important stuff. But not all skeletons are created equal; ass toys don’t need the same skeleton as a full doll. A handheld toy shaped like a mouth doesn’t need a spine. You get it.

I am about to repeat myself, but …. quality varies from company to company because different companies use different procedures and materials to make the products.

Why do I think skeletons are important? Do you want a doll with legs so loosey-goosey it can’t hold any position (doggy style) or a doll that can’t sit up straight for (cowgirl) no, of course not? Especially when you are in the mood and the moment, and you just want it to take a certain position, it’s a buzz kill. A good skeleton is like a solid internet connection when it is working well, you don’t think about it. when it isn’t working, you spend the whole night trying to get it to work so you can get to work.

Good news. SDTs Skeletons are good! Alexandra is 87.69 pounds and can hold herself up ! Impressive feat of engineering. Make sure you get some info about the skeleton or that you find a company that takes pride in its manufacturing processes.

Dimensions

Why do dimensions matter? They don’t really but some toys have a great shape (ratios) but the size is either too small or too big. This is where numbers can give you a ballpark. They also help with buying clothes and underwear.

Tip 1 – “Waist” and Length tell you more about the size of a doll than its bust or hip. Especially length. Length is how tall/long the doll is. Often doll sites have pictures of products without any other products in the frame so it is hard to tell how big an object truly is. This is where the numbers like length can be a big help.

Tip 2 – Measure yourself, this will give you a good idea of how big the dolls are compared to you.

Sight – Sculpt/Body Shape

I’m going to say something that might hurt your dolls feelings… Some dolls are sexier than others. Even if the two dolls have the same measurements. How can this be? Different models have different shapes/designs so, even if two dolls can have the same measurements, if they are different models, they will not look the same or feel the same. So when shopping does not only compare numbers. These dolls are also art. So after taking everything I said into account (numbers, smell, etc), don’t forget to choose what you find the most beautiful (that you can lift). We all have different ideas of what is sexy to us, so sometimes trust your eyes.

Touch – Gel Breasts

Yes. They feel better than hollow and solid. Solid are firm, hollow have air in them. Gel breasts have a less firm type of tpe/silicone inside. (I cut one of my toys open to check to see so you don’t have to). I think gel is great but it’s the important feature of this list.

If everything else was equal I would choose gel. Every time. But gel is still my last consideration. Why? Gel breasts feel slightly better than hollow and solid. But gel doesn’t turn a rubber boob into flesh. So don’t worry about gel, when you see the option take it, but I wouldn’t let gel force me to buy a toy that didn’t look good to me, or was too big or small.

The next entry in this series will talk about the anal and vaginal sex tunnels! I have talked about virtually everything else, so next entry is all about them.

TPE Summary. TLDR

  1. In addition to how the torsos look, you must consider the quality of the TPE BLEND.
  2. TPE blend will affect smell, durability, and feel.
  3. Every factory has a different blend.
  4. Skeletons are underrated, make sure you are getting something with a good skeleton
  5. Gel boobs are great but not a deal breaker
  6. Use numbers when in doubt about size.
  7. Get what inspires you 😀

**** Also if you have gel boobs and you notice that there is a softer part on the side of the boob that’s not a flaw, the way they make the gel breasts by first building a hollow doll, cutting a hole in the side of the boob and then adding the gel. The hole is later filled with TPE, so melts over, so when you might be able to see where the gel was added. Not a big deal. Not a flaw. Just how it is made.

At SexDollTorso.com we offer a variety of products ranging from light handheld devices like Emma to life-sized 1 to 1 scale hands doll torsos like Salma and Alexandra. Since we have such a variety of options we thought we write this series to help you make your decision-making easier. A bit about me, I have been on a journey of sexual experimentation looking for the ideal masturbator. So far I have owned fleshlights, onaholes, 30lb torsos,70lb torsos, 90 pound and torsos. While I have my preferences, I have learned that there is no perfect piece, just perfect tools for specific situations. In this series I will go over some of the things that I wish understood before I started buying sex toys. If I knew what I know now I would have saved a lot of money AND time.

The first topic that needs to be discussed is weight. From what I have seen, the marketing around these products focuses mostly on looks and features but these factors are not as important as weight. At the end of the day these toys are physical objects that you have to move with your body so weight is the most important factor.

Here are 8 ways that weight affects your experience

  1. Lighter is easier to manage – When moving the doll from place to place (storage, cleaning and change of scenery)
  2. Lighter is easier to hide. (if you need to hide it)
  3. Your ability to manipulate the toy changing positions is affected by its weight.
  4. Your ability to go hands-free = Heavy toys can stay in place during sex, lighter toys, cant.
  5. More Weight = More Cushion for the pushing!
  6. More Weight = More cuddle!
  7. Visual Realism. Lighter dolls are “scaled” down to keep the sexy proportions while keeping the weight down. Some people like this, but some people think these types look too small.
  8. Sexual Realism – Heavier feel more realistic for missionary and doggy style because they don’t move around during use. They also can “bounce back” and jiggle better.

Now that we have our classes lets also create a set of questions to guide our discussion.

The Weighty Questions Categories

Practical questions

  1. Where do you want to use it? (Try to think about the spatial requirements of where you want to use it.
  2. What is your current Living situation ? Will you want to hide it?
  3. Will you be using it alone?

Fun and Fantasy Questions

  1. How would you like to interact with it from a weight stand point?
  2. Which body parts are you looking to play with?
  3. Hands free?
  4. Which sexual positions do you want to use with the toy? For example, if doggystyle is your thing, you are probably going to want to be hands free and find something with some jiggle. (Jiggle equals weight) If its mostly oral, then weight isnt so important
  5. Will you want to use it only for sexual release? Or do you also want touch and cuddle? Why? More Cuddle Touch = More weight
  6. How much realism are you going for?

Responsible questions

  1. How is your health? How is your back?
  2. How heavy is your budget ? You will find that weight is the biggest factor in price because price is a combination of the material costs, sculpting time shipping costs.

For sake of simplicity, lets divide the products we have into …

4 weight classes

Class 1 – Super Light Weight (Male Masturbators)

Assumed Company goal – “Let’s make a sexy handheld masturbator that feels like a vagina, or anus or mouth.”

– Sexual positions lack realism

Class 2 Lightweight torso (“realistic” Male Masturbators)

Assumed Company goal – “let’s make a toy that has multiple functions or perfectly recreates a single sexual experience. You might also get a good single body part and a tunnel. Companies here try to meet multiple needs. You can get a lot of 2 in 1s here.”

Examples

  • Scaled-down torsos, (Jessica)

– Finding clothes for scaled-down dolls is harder.

Class 3 Middleweight ( Sex Doll Torso)

These are full-sized (torso, hips, boobs, thigh), have moving skeletons

(I am saying above 35 pounds and below 60 pounds is a middleweight).

Assumed Company goal – “let’s make a sex doll torso, that is lightweight but also has all of the sexy features of a sex doll.”

Examples

  • Megan
  • Margot

– Not small, so it will require closet space if you want to hide it

Class 4 Heavyweight Very Realistic Torso

These are so feature-packed that they weigh as much as some full-sized love dolls with heads and arms!

Assumed Company goal – “Let’s give them the best sexual experience one can have by themselves. Most realistic sex with a doll.” If you want everything that a torso has to offer and you have no issues with weight or privacy and you want to cuddle these are what you want.

Examples

Pros

– Requires intention to move.

Let’s do some hypothetical case studies (examples)

Person 1 – wants to buy a torso to meet touch needs but their health makes lifting things hard. Let’s run them through the questions.

Practical answers

– They plan on using it alone, in the bedroom in a sex-positive home. (no hiding)

Fun and Fantasy answers

– they want to cuddle too

– they LOVE big butts (they cannot lie)

Responsible answers

– Health issues mean moving heavy objects is a challenge

– No budget issues

I would recommend …. Middle-sized torso (with accessible cleaning options)

– Since hiding it is not an issue, they can clean it in bed! (with a bedpan and the care kit)

– they can choose between Megan or Margot (light but full-sized)

Person 2 – still lives with family

Practical answers

– Busy house/ doesn’t want people to see it

Fun and Fantasy answers

– Also loves butts (person 2 doesn’t lie either)

Responsible answers

– No health issues

– Budget issues! cant go over 300!

Recommendation

– Kelly

– Minaj

Person 3 – looking for a threesome but doesn’t want to find a “unicorn”

Practical answers

– Couple! No need to hide, use it together move it together

Fun answers

– The couple wants to try a threesome but doesn’t want a full doll

Recommendation – Here this couple can freely choose which torso they are most attracted to.

– Alexandra

– Salma

– Margot

– Megan

Conclusion

I think you can see the way we use weight to narrow down our options. After we have the weight class selected we decide what is best for our tastes.

Thank you for your time!

The next blog will discuss the different features of sex torsos and dolls.

How do I clean my sex doll step by step?

Step 1: Gently rotate and screw the nozzle out from the enema bulb ,squeeze the bulb to release the air, then fully immerse the bulb in water and release the bulb, screw the nozzle onto the bulb to complete the installation.

Step 2: Insert the tip with sprinkling holes fully into the tunnels of the doll. Squeeze the bulb to let the water spray into the doll’s tunnels through the sprinkling holes. The sperm and lube inside the doll’s tunnel would be flushed out by the water. You can use a shower-hose attachment if you don’t have a water irrigator but on a LOW and gentle setting. Warm water is good for cleaning sex dolls but any extreme temperature is bad for TPE, so avoid using boiling water.

Step 3: Shaking or squeezing out the majority of the water inside the doll.

Step 4: Gently insert the drying stick with the rounded end(Please don’t pawed away the doll tunnel’s hole overstretch). Roll it around, squeeze it a little to move the moisture around and bring it into contact with the drying stick.

Step 7: Carefully pull the stick back out and set it aside to dry. How long it takes to dry depends on the temperature and ambient humidity. It is Reusable, so one drying stick can be used for a very long time.

Step 8: To dry the doll’s skin, use a Soft Cloth to gently pat down the doll ‘ s skin when wet. Do not apply too much pressure.

Step 9: Once you have removed the bulk of moisture from the dolls, allow it to sit for an hour and full dry naturally. Do not use a hairdryer or any other heating device on your doll. Do not attempt to speed up drying by leaving near a radiator/ fire or any other heating device. (A cool fan will do the trick). After this time you can apply the talcum powder or cornstarch to the dolls’ body(but only on the outside) to give it a nice fragrance and prevent the skin from becoming sticky. Do not apply talcum powder while your dolls is still wet.

Step 10: Gently place the doll into the storage bag and pull the string at the top of the bag so that your doll will be in a sealed and dust-free environment.

About Soap

  • preferably sulfate free
  • Do not use abrasive soaps or any other general cleaning products.
  • You can use anti-bacterial warm soapy water
  • Use a ratio of 1:5 soap to water.

Tips: Due to the different compositions of the oil, it is difficult for us to distinguish what ingredient will cause damage to the doll,So we do not recommend using oily products for care after cleaning the doll.

FAQ

1.What lube do you recommend?

We recommend you use water-based lubes, these types of lubricants will be much easier to clean and won’t react negatively with TPE.

When having sex with sex dolls, always use water-based lubricants. This will help better vagina and anus without worrying about damaging the doll.

2.How often should I clean my doll?

There are two aspects to this problem, one is the hygiene problem, and the other is the lifespan of the doll.

Normally, we recommend that you clean your doll every 2-4 weeks. This should be the perfect balance between hygiene and ensuring that your doll is used for as long as possible. Many of our customers pay great attention to hygiene (please forgive the pun) and choose to clean their dolls after each use. Keep in mind that doing so may degrade the doll’s skin more quickly and shorten its lifespan or cause the skin to tear faster than you would like.

Because all dolls of SDT are made of high-end TPE materials, so please don’t be afraid. You won’t need often to spend a lot of time cleaning your doll.

So, sometime you won’t need to clean the doll all over the body. We recommend cleaning dolls after every sexual use in the key areas. But our bodies’ natural oils and sweat can damage the doll’s skin over time. To avoid bacterial build up, we suggest a thorough clean the doll all over the body every 2-4 weeks – depending on your usage, you may consider cleaning more frequently.

If you keep your doll in storage for long periods of time, bring it out once a month or so for an inspection and wipe down. You will be able to note and mitigate any moisture issues or other problems.

3.How Do I Dry My Doll After Cleaning?

Ensuring your doll has dried fully is very important as it prevents and friction on the skin which could potentially cause a tear of the skin.

To dry the doll, use a light non-abrasive cloth(microfibre towels) to gently pat down the doll when wet. Do not apply too much pressure as the final part of the drying will be natural.

Once you have removed the bulk of moisture from the doll, allow it to sit for an hour and full dry naturally. After this time you can apply the talcum powder to the doll’s body to give it a nice fragrance and prevent the skin from becoming tacky.

4.Bone Care of Sex Doll

SDT dolls has fixed and movable joints, which can provide her with more flexibility and multiple sex positions.

  • Do not spread the arms and legs of your love doll longer than necessary, as the pressure may cause tearing. When you are not using the doll, always return the doll to her stress-free position, with your arms down and your legs closed.
  • Be careful not to drop her, hit her surface or drag it on the floor, as this will reduce her quality and lifespan.
  • Don’t spread your limbs too much, and don’t use too much force, so as not to damage the bones and skin.
  • Your doll’s wrist is strengthened to support its weight. However, it is recommended to provide support by placing pillows or furniture under the torso when having sex with a dog.
  • Do not leave her in a bent position for a long time to avoid body deformation.
  • Do not stand for long periods of time, as this may damage her position.

5.Sex doll clothing care

It is very important that you check the clothes you are putting on the doll will not transfer any of the colours to the doll. The doll will take on any colour from clothing if they have not been thoroughly washed before using on the doll. TPE skin, in particular, is very porous and will stain.

To clean the clothes, use your usual washing technique but ensure that the clothing is fully dried before putting on the doll.

This applies to anything that comes into contact with the doll if it contains ink or anything that could potentially discolour the skin, avoid contact.

6.How to store my love doll properly?

When you’re not using your doll, you should make sure you store it correctly. Never store your love doll near windows, humidifiers or any other sources of moisture.

Do not store your doll with heaving clothing on. The dyes can leach out into your doll’s skin. Don’t place her in or near other items that could transfer colors and stains either.

Sunlight – When not in use, store your doll in a cool, dry, and dark area. Avoid direct sunlight too as this can age the skin and cause discoloration.

Dust – the skin of your doll will easily collect dust stick to it. We recommend storing the doll in a storage bag or in the original product box as dust can be extremely difficult to remove.

For TPE dolls, the horizontal lying position is better for preservation. Please avoid downward positions, which may cause the doll’s chest to deform.

Please pay attention to the TPE doll to avoid extrusion, because long time’s extrusion will cause deformation, and do not place heavy objects on the physical doll and avoid partial extrusion or tightening, etc. Try to avoid hard surfaces as it can flatten the doll, and avoid any surfaces with colors that can stain your doll.

Also be careful not to put the doll for a long time on the leather or dyed leather seat, also avoid dressing the doll in dark color clothes for a long time, so as not to penetrate the pigment inside the skin.

For packaging items, you can use sex doll storage box, frosted bags, original shipping box or storage bag to store the doll, so you can keep the foam and any protective items for storage!

Never let TPE come into contact with the silicone. Chemical reactions will cause its degradation. If you own both TPE and silicone dolls, you should store them separately.

7.Is replenishing oil necessary?

It is recommended to oil and powder your doll to extend your doll’s lifespan. However, please do this carefully and don’t overdo it.

If you notice your doll is not as supple, you can apply some mineral oil. The general process is to first clean your doll, dry it, after the doll is been fully dry, massage on the oil, and then after the oil has fully been absorbed, powder the doll with talcum powder.

Depending on how much you use your doll, some people recommend powdering at least once a month, and oiling every few months.

Why oil and powder your doll? TPE material naturally leaks oil over time and oiling your doll will help replenish that natural oil. TPE material can also get sticky over time, especially after washing it, so powdering helps smooth the skin and prevents your doll from becoming a dust magnet.

Matters needing attention

  • Do not use abrasive soaps or any other harsh cleaning products.
  • Do not use chemicals, alcohol or any other general user stain removers.
  • Avoid using use harsh materials or any sharp objects when cleaning the doll as this could lead to puncturing the skin.
  • Do not use silicone based lubricants.
  • Do not apply too much pressure to the doll’s skin when cleaning or drying the sex doll as again this could lead to a tear.
  • Do not apply perfumes as these contain alcohol which is very harmful to your sex doll.
  • Do not attempt to speed up drying by leaving the doll near a radiator, fire or any other heating device.
  • Do not dress the sex doll in dark clothes or clothes that stain easily.
  • Keep out of reach from children and pets.
  • It is recommended to use original packing bags,sealed boxes, or frosted bags for storing sex doll. Store in a cool, dark place to ensure product longevity. Never store in direct sunlight.
  • If the sex doll accidentally fell to the ground and the skin becomes dusty, wash it with mild liquid soap or antibacterial soap.
  • Don’t Leave The Doll In a Sitting Position For Too Long. People must keep one thing in mind that not to leave their sex doll in a sitting position all day long. Try to leave her in a straight position as much as possible.
  • Always support your doll properly when you carry and move it. Don’t drag or lift at her weakest points such as her legs. Otherwise, she could suffer from a dislocation. During sex, don’t be too rough. Don’t flex body parts against their natural movement. Do not strike your doll too hard, or twist or bend her. If it damages a human, it will likely damage your doll.
  • You have to think that your sex girl is your partner in the journey of pleasure fantasy.Be gentle with her and avoid putting unnecessary items over her. Only then she can remain with you as long as you want.
  • After washing your sex doll properly, never rush towards the drying process immediately. People do not use hair dryers or other direct heating sources to dry sex dolls. And try to use some renewal powder on the skin to help protect the material and keep your doll in prime condition.
  • Only Use Renewal Powder To Beautify Your Doll.People should not apply cream-based makeup like concealers, foundations, cream blushes, etc. on the doll, which will seep into the material and permanently stain the area.No doubt, the renewal powder is the best choice.
  • Don’t Spray Perfume Directly Onto Your Doll. A direct spray of perfume can damage the skin of your beloved sex girl. So, People must not spray perfume directly onto your doll’s skin because the high alcohol content in perfumes can make the pigment rub off and leave your doll with a weird patch of discoloration.
  • Don’t Leave Your Doll Near High Heat. To carry on this relationship with your sex girl, never leave her near high heat for a prolonged period of time because high heat can cause TPE to start melting.
