How Much Does a Sex Doll Cost?

Posted by Anna Bergeron on

Despite the many, many factors which can go into choosing your perfect sex doll, for most people it very often comes back to the same point. How much does it cost? In an ideal world, we’d all be able to get the exact sex doll we want without blowing a significant portion of our savings.

Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world. Most of us will have to make some level of compromise when choosing our dolls, unless you are one of the lucky few who can afford to drop several thousand dollars on a top of the line model.

What Affects a Sex Dolls Cost?

There are a few factors at play when it comes to pricing a sex doll. Generally, they’ll fall into a few different categories:

  • What type of sex doll are you buying?
  • How much do the materials cost?
  • How much can you customise the sex doll?
  • How long does it take to make?
  • Where are you getting it shipped to/from?
  • Are any of the parts based on famous people?

Not all of these points will apply to everyone who shops for a sex doll, but almost all of the time at least one of them will be a consideration.

Cost of Different Types of Sex Doll

Which type of sex doll you buy will usually be the factor which sets a rough price range for your purchase. This works in a kind of tiered system, working from the least to most realistic models. The better the quality of the doll, the more it’s going to cost you.

At the bottom of the scale, we have the inflatable sex dolls. These are typically the worst experience out of any sex doll (although many people still enjoy them). Inflatable dolls do still have all of the relevant parts, but there’s no posing or adjusting parts. Simply inflate and what you have is what you have. They’re also the most likely to break, although replacing them will be cheap.

Body parts rank next, as you aren’t exactly buying a whole doll. The most prolific version of a body part is the vajankle, a human foot with a vagina moulded into it. You can also get torsos with no limbs, half bodies, just butts, and many other bits and pieces.

Pricing here is somewhat all over the place depending on the quality of the body parts, but they can range anywhere between inflatable doll prices and even be more expensive than some full-sized dolls if they are extremely detailed.

Mini Sex Dolls are the cheapest of the advanced sex dolls. They are much smaller than the larger versions and may only have room for a single orifice.

As we move up the scale of sex dolls, it becomes more a question of the specific doll than the typing. Regular sex dolls can range anywhere from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.

The most expensive type of sex doll is typically one of the cutting-edge versions, which currently are the ones incorporating AI and robot technology.

Fabric dolls prove a slight exception to the usual idea of quality and realism resulting in higher costs. Creating a fabric doll can be a very in depth and long process, so prices could sit anywhere along the scale.

How Much Do Sex Doll Materials Cost?

What the doll is made of is probably the most obvious thing that will affect the price of your doll. A more expensive material will generally result in a more expensive sex doll. Out of all the materials used in sex dolls currently, most of the time silicone is going the be the most expensive. Vinyl or latex tends to be the cheapest, and these two are commonly used in inflatable sex dolls to keep the cost down.

Fabric is a bit of an outlier as far as material cost is concerned. Obviously having a sex doll made and stuffed with polyester is going to be much cheaper than having one made and stuffed with cashmere. You could have it stuffed with a cheaper material, and have an expensive one for the skin, or even just have the parts you’re going to touch the most made of more luxurious materials. It really just comes down to the individual doll.

How Much Can You Customise Your Sex Doll?

This is where prices can really start to shoot up. Many manufacturers will have a basic stock design for their sex dolls that they use as a base for their products. If you take the base model, it’s going to be cheaper. When you start to choose custom options though, it means they will have to take off and replace various parts of your doll.

Some companies let you go even further than that, and rather than giving you options they will simply create exactly what you ask for. Some people provide photographs to copy, others give detailed explanations. Many manufacturers have no problem doing this kind of work and view themselves as artists more than builders.

A general rule of thumb for customisations though, is the more you want to change, the more it’s going to cost. If you make enough alterations, the manufacturer may quote you a separate price that isn’t even advertised because creating your doll is going to be a task all of its own.

How Long Does It Take to Make?

The amount of time your sex doll takes to make is another driving factor in how much you get charged. If you buy something that is able to be mass produced in a factory such as an inflatable sex doll, or the lower end life sized dolls, then you’re probably going to pay a lot less. When things can be mass produced, less humans need to be involved so there’s less wages to pay.

Time is intrinsically linked to customisation with sex dolls though. The more things you want changed or added to your doll which differs from the base version, the more people are going to need to be involved in creating your vision. With more people to pay for spending time on your doll, the more the company is going to need to charge you.

How long it takes is also going to be the main driving factors in pricing of fabric sex dolls. While some things can be mass produced in a factory, others will need to be hand made by individuals who sew each part together. This can be an incredibly time-consuming process, so carefully consider any additions to a fabric sex doll as they can quickly make it very expensive.

Where Are You Getting It Shipped To/From?

It seems quite obvious when you actually stop and think about it, but delivery is something that didn’t even occur to me for a long time. Think about how much it costs to send a relatively small package across the country or even abroad. Now imagine a package the size of a human, weighing over 30kg. As I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, sending these dolls can be an expensive deal.

On top of that, any custom-made dolls will likely be put together in very specific locations. They can't just pass yout order onto your local branch and get them to do it. This means you're very likely going to need to get it shipped across borders unless you're lucky enough to be in the same country as the company you order from. Import taxes add yet another cost to your delivery.

If cost of delivery is a particular issue for you, it's probably worth doing some research and finding a company that is based nearer to your location. That way, shipping won't just be cheaper. It'll be simpler and faster too.

Are Any of the Parts Based on Famous People?

Now this probably seems like an odd consideration, but as people who’ve bought these dolls know, this can be a very expensive decision. Most companies make sex dolls that are designed based off real human beings. In some cases, the parts used aren’t based off of just any human being.

Many porn stars have had their genitals immortalised forever in the form of sex toys, and some even give permission for their entire appearance to be used. Now the idea of having sex with your favourite porn star is great, but giving their permission is obviously going to come with a price. The more parts of your doll that’s based off of real people, the more likely it is for the price to go up.

Hopefully now you'll have a bit more idea of why the prices start to become so high when you shop for sex dolls. With these points in mind, you should be able to consider in a bit more depth exactly which things are important to you, and which you might be able to save a bit of money on. Maybe one day though, we won't have to worry about any of it and you'll be able to get that sex doll you've always dreamed of.
