With the development of society and the openness of people’s concepts toward sex, sex dolls gradually appear in our vision.

The demand for sex dolls is increasing, at the same time more people are looking into the sex doll industry.

The rise of the sex doll industry can be associated with many factors; however, our focus today is to talk about how to identify between silicone sex dolls and TPE sex dolls.

what is a sex doll? (definition and classification of sex dolls)

Before we get into the topic, let’s first talk about what a sex doll is and what are the major categories of sex dolls that available in the market.

As the name indicates, a ‘sex doll’ is a doll used for sex.

On the one hand, it will meet the sexual needs of the human body by having sex with the sex doll. On the other hand, it will meet the spiritual needs of the human soul through companionship.

There are two types of sex dolls exist in the market, inflatable dolls and solid dolls. Depending on the material, the solid dolls can be divided into silicone sex dolls and TPE sex dolls.

Inflatable dolls can be simply understood as balloon dolls, the interior of which is mainly done by inflating. Although the inflatable doll is easy to carry, it has relatively poor user experience and appearance.

The doll in the picture below is a typical inflatable doll.

Solid dolls are dolls with a metal skeleton and artificial muscles. The muscles can be made of silicone or TPE, so the solid dolls are divided into silicone sex dolls and TPE sex dolls according to the material used.

What are the differences between the two, and how to identify the materials when purchasing?

How to identify between silicone sex dolls and TPE sex dolls?

As solid dolls, silicone and TPE sex dolls are two of the most popular sex dolls in today’s market.  It is mainly due to the real feeling of the skin and the outstanding stability and ductility.

The most important thing is that silicone sex dolls and TPE sex dolls are very close to real people by appearance.

Both silicone and TPE sex dolls are very popular, however, they still have many differences. Below are their major differences:

1. Flexibility and ductility

TPE sex dolls are made of TPE, which stands for Thermoplastic Elastomer.

It is a synthetic material with the advantages of both rubber and plastic.

As a result, TPE sex dolls have high ductility and elasticity and are very soft. Compare to TPE sex dolls, silicone sex dolls are made of silicone, which is also an elastomer.

However, the silicone is slightly harder and less flexible than TPE.

2. Head carving and detail handling

Because silicone is slightly harder than TPE material, silicone sex dolls are more easily shaped and perfectly handled in the head carving and other details.

For instance, a good silicone sex doll can clearly show the skin texture, the beautifully curved body, and the implanted eyebrows, etc. Generally, a silicone sex doll has a longer service life than a TPE sex doll, since it is hard to dye and oil.

3. Price

In addition to the differences described above, the most obvious difference between the two is the price.

Silicone sex dolls are more expensive than TPE sex dolls. Besides the price differences of the raw materials, the material reuse rates, processing processes and detail handling are the factors contribute to the product price.

The processing process of a silicone sex doll is more complicated than a TPE sex doll.

TPE sex dolls can be reprocessed, recycled and reused, which significantly reduces the production costs.

While silicone sex dolls cannot be recycled and reused. Moreover, the silicone sex dolls are precise and perfect in detail such as face coating and body coating.

Overall the silicone sex dolls are expensive than TPE sex dolls.

4. Weight

The weight is different between silicone sex dolls and TPE sex dolls. In general, silicone sex dolls are heavier than TPE sex dolls.

It is because of the material density, for the same doll size, a silicone sex doll is heavier than a TPE sex doll. Most of the sex dolls with the adjustable weight in the market are silicone sex dolls.

Because the silicone doll has inner liners as part of the muscles, the inner liners are very light and can be adjusted in weight.

In summary, TPE sex dolls have good ductility, softer and lighter, and less expensive, but the head carving and coating are slightly inferior to silicone sex dolls.

The service life of TPE sex dolls is medium.

Silicone sex dolls are more expensive, but the head carving and detail handling are just right and hard to dye and oil.

Silicone sex dolls are also more stable and have a longer service life.

The editor of Mailovedoll’s recommendation is that select your favorite sex doll according to your actual situation. Whether a silicone sex doll or a TPE sex doll is a good choice.

If you want to combine the advantages of both types, you may consider a mixed silicone and TPE sex doll.

For example, a sex doll with a silicone head and a TPE body, which falls to the category of customization.
