Types of Sex Doll

Posted by Anna Bergeron on

Sex dolls, like the people they are modelled after, are massively varied. Differences can come from many different things. These don’t just have to be cosmetic differences either. Some people enjoy entirely different kinds of sex dolls to each other and use them for completely different reasons. Luckily the market is huge, and people are able to find their ideal partner no matter what they desire.

Main Categories of Sex Dolls

While there are many different options within each type of sex doll, we can generally group them into a few simpler categories. These are:

  • Blow-Up Sex Dolls
  • Fabric Sex Dolls
  • Mini Sex Dolls
  • Realistic Sex Dolls
  • Robot Sex Dolls

Blow-Up Sex Dolls

These are your most basic, entry-level sex dolls. Usually made of vinyl, these are the kind that you’ll find at any bachelor party, bachelorette party, office party, or any other place a jokey naked inflatable might be found. While the most basic of these are very cheap and probably won’t give you a great time in the bedroom, there are many different models which can have more features and better-quality plastic or vinyl.

The higher end of inflatable sex dolls can cost upwards of $100. Rather than being entirely inflatable, the more important parts (the vagina and anus) will be an insert to be put into the inflated body. Similarly, some dolls come with an entirely premade head which doesn’t need inflating. Both of these factors can help it feel a bit more like having sex with a real person rather than a plastic bag.

Fabric Sex Dolls

In a market striving for realism and life-likeness, it might seem odd to think of a fabric sex doll. For some people though, these are ideal. It might be that they are less interested in sex with the doll and looking for more of a companion, in which case the soft and cuddly nature of fabric can be preferable. Or in other cases, discretion may be a consideration.

For these men, a bolster or similar cushion with cuts or zips in the fabric to insert a removable vagina can be more ideal. Overall fabric sex dolls can be great if you aren’t hugely bothered about realistic feelings or don’t want to spend large amounts of money on a doll. You can even go so far as making your own fabric doll out of an existing plushie, letting you tailor the experience to be exactly what you want it to be.

Mini Sex Dolls

Mini sex dolls are exactly what they sound like; smaller sex dolls. These are designed to give many of the same features and feelings of a full sized realistic sex doll, but in a much smaller package. Mini sex dolls are a surprisingly impressive feat, managing to squeeze all the features into around 2-3 feet of doll.

They are usually made in exactly the same way as the realistic dolls, but the smaller size makes them both easier to store, and often much cheaper! If you’re interested in these dolls then we have a guide just for you!

Realistic Sex Dolls

The next frontier in sex doll development is the robot sex doll. Sex robots are still early in development, and most models only feature a moving head. The robot can be programmed with a number of different features depending on the doll.

These can range from different types of personalities, different reactions to stimulations, or even short conversations with their owners. Ultimately the aim of many of these manufacturers is to create a completely lifelike robot indistinguishable from a real human being.

Sex robots aren’t without their issues though. As we move away from inanimate objects that can clearly be defined as sex toys, we move into dangerous territory regarding consent, free will, and many other psychological issues. Whether or not the technology is there to continue advancing these kinds of sex dolls, who knows if we will ever be allowed to reach the aspirations of these manufacturers.
