Sex Dolls - Sex Toys 101
Sex dolls. Blow-up Bettys. Inflatable girlfriends. If you’ve encountered one, chances are it was at a frat party or some similar event. Many people consider sex dolls a novelty or a joke, suitable for blowing up and tossing around in the crowd at soccer games, or using as a raft in the pool. But consider this: some high-end sex dolls cost up to $7,000. That’s no joke. Why would anyone shell out that much for a fuckable mannequin? Let’s take a closer look at the world of virtual lovers and find out.
We’ll start with what everybody’s already familiar with: the classic blow-up doll. Take the bottom of the line model, a simple vinyl or PVC number with no extras that you can pick up for $15 or less. This really is only suitable as a prop for bachelor parties and the like. Or as a companion for very sad, very broke, very hard-up men. Or as an extra “passenger” to get you through the carpool lane. Of course, the packaging for these sex dolls usually features a photo of a luscious real woman, but if you believe the contents of the box bear any resemblance to an actual flesh-and-blood model or porn star, I’ve got some prime swampland in Florida to sell you.
Perusing the selection of sex dolls online, you’ll notice there’s a big price gap between the lowest-priced models and the next tier up, which go for around $100 to $200. Why the increase when these sex dolls look as shockingly grotesque as the cheaper ones? These babies come with exciting features that add to your pleasure – vibrating pussies, Cyberskin mouths, inflatable vaginas. Of course, all this hardware is still mounted on the same basic inflatable chassis, maybe dolled up with a more humanoid face and some “real” hair.
To really start getting something you can grab a hold of in the sex toy department, you need to shell out a few more bucks…like maybe $300 or so. For that much you can get an inflatable doll with added features to make her more fuckable – plus, she’ll be better constructed and made from sturdier material, like latex, that will actually support your body weight, provided you’re not as chunky as, say, Michael Moore. These premium sex dolls also often have fully sculpted mannequin heads and more realistic breasts. The manufacturer might even throw in a floor pump in the bargain, so you don’t have to huff and puff to get her inflated.
You’re In Solid
Investing in a top-of-the-line sex doll is a bit of a commitment. Moving and storing the doll may be an issue; these things are the same size and weight as an actual human being, so it’s kind of like having a dead body around the house all the time. Of course, for those who want a long-term relationship with a partner who never nags and is always ready for sex, it may be worth it. Think about how much you might spend on your girlfriend or the women you date over a ten or 20 year period and do the math. Buying a $5,000 sex doll might actually save you money, plus a lot of time and aggravation.
If you’re interested in getting your own little piece of faux tail, we suggest you avoid the cheaper rubber models, and head straight for the silicone or Cyberskin models. Cyberskin and its cousins provide an amazingly fleshlike feeling. They’re soft, stretchy, and have a texture that feels eerily like human skin. Cyberskin pussies are often pretty realistically modeled, but it’s probably more the feel than the look that you’ll be interested in, and these babies can feel like the real deal. Throw in a little vibration or some noduled passageways, and maybe they feel better than real. If you want to be a star fucker, you can get a pussy molded from your favorite porn queen, like Tera Patrick, Julie Ashton, or Jenna Jameson.
All in the Hand
Just Kidding - Maybe
As you can see, sex dolls can be either strictly for laughs, or very serious business. If you’re interested in hooking up with some artificial action, consider what you want from the experience and what you’re willing to pay. Sex dolls, fake pussies, and masturbators can all enhance your solo love life in different ways. Just make sure your expectations are realistic, because often the love dolls aren’t.
