What Does a Sex Doll Feel Like?


Ever wondered what sex with a realistic sex doll actually feels like? You’re not alone. If you’ve ever been curious as to whether you can kiss your sex doll (yes), or try out all your favorite sexual positions (yes), or whether “interacting” with your love doll will be significantly different than turning yourself on with a handheld masturbation sex toy, you’ll find the answers here.

We’re going to go over all the different stages of the process — from kissing, and first base type things to all the kinky stuff. Ever wanted to engage in a certain kind of sexual intercourse or play but couldn’t find a real person who wanted to accommodate? Good news! Your sex doll is ready to get down and dirty with you, and while they might not be a real girl or guy, you can get some very realistic satisfaction from engaging in this kind of play. 

Sex dolls are the ultimate sex toys, haven’t you heard? ;)

What kind of sex dolls are we talkin’ about here?

First, a note on the quality of sex with sex dolls: Basically sex with a cheap sex doll (like a basic blow up or inflatable doll) is going to feel very different from sex with a high-end, silicone or TPE sex doll. The pricier, life-sized sex dolls feel a lot more substantial and less like, well, an inanimate object. On that note, if you’re wondering ‘how much is a sex doll?’, we’ve got answers.

An inflatable sex doll is great for what they are, and they’re not going to come with things like pubic hair (yes, you can customize higher-end sex dolls to come with pubic hair, a landing strip, or of course, a full Brazilian if that’s your thing). Inflatable dolls are also not going to have skin that really feels like human skin, and they’re not going to have full-on orifices or “channels” you can stick your johnson into. 

So to put it plainly, many of the things we’ll talk about here apply more to high-end sex dolls, often made by companies like Real Doll, WM Doll, Piper Doll, YL Doll, Irontech Doll, etc. Ps.

What does kissing a sex doll feel like?

Dolls have come a long way since the advent of the iconic blow-up dolls seen as gag gifts in film and TV. Made from silicone or TPE, modern dolls can be everything from mini sex dolls that are erotic in their own way, to life-sized varieties with beautiful, soft faces and lovely, open mouths. 

Kissing your sex doll, if it’s made of silicone or TPE, can feel quite real — you can even French kiss it! Most high-end sex dolls are anatomically equipped with a tongue, teeth, and delightfully soft lips. They’re modeled after real women, and if you’re going with a customizable model, you’re going to be able to specify things like how full you want your doll’s lips to be, and whether you want it to be able to deep throat you.

As one enthusiastic TPE sex doll owner put it, “I kissed her, and wow! Her lips feel indistinguishable from human lips; kissing her is exactly like kissing a girlfriend.” Another said, “​​One of the first parts I touched as I was unpacking her was a calf, and I was amazed at how real it felt - just like human skin and the way the skin moves is just like human skin, muscle, and fat jiggling. WOW!”

TL;DR: Getting in there to show your doll some sweet lovin’ with kissing is totally within the doll’s wheelhouse.

What does touching a sex doll feel like?

One of the things that distinguishes sex dolls from the real thing is their temperature. Bear in mind, without a leap in robotics and price, your doll probably won’t be kissing you back, and unless you warm up the body parts  prior to kissing, at first, the skin will feel like the ambient temperature of the space he or she was stored in. 

Many sex doll owners say that this is one of the more unrealistic-feeling parts of interacting with a love doll. Now, there are ways you can warm up your doll. For example, you can insert a USB heating rod into the sex doll’s channels to warm up the inside, where you’ll be sticking your cock (a USB heating rod doesn’t break the bank, either — you can pick one up for less than $10). If you have a TPE doll, you’ll also find that your own body heat will warm up your doll, so after a while of laying with them, they’ll warm up.

Doll James or Doll Janette’s body can also be warmed up with a heated blanket on the outside, and, as stated, internal warmers on the inside to help get that oh-so-warming fun sensation you’re craving.

Sex doll manufacturers have spent a lot of time, energy, and money investing in realistic skin and other sex doll parts, so touching a luxury sex doll is close to the real thing. Female sex doll breasts, for example, are lovely and firm, but with quite a bit of give, so they feel close to the real thing. Some sex doll owners swear by breasts that are gel-filled, which they say feel even more like the real thing. And as mentioned, with high-end dolls, you can customize a lot of things, including the size of boobs you love. 

The same thing goes for your sex doll’s butt, which we’ll go into more detail on in a minute. Essentially you are the boss when it comes to how it feels; whether you’re getting a male doll or a female doll, you get to choose how firm or jiggly you want it to be, as well as the size. The sky’s the limit!

Also, if you’re into sex dolls that have both male and female parts, you can get one like that. Everyone is included in the world of sex dolls.

What’s the difference between silicone sex dolls and TPE dolls?

There’s some debate in the sex doll community as to what’s “better” — silicone or TPE. The truth is, they’re both very realistic and pleasurable to interact with, and they do have some differences to be aware of.

In general, silicone material is both harder and heavier than TPE. Silicone holds texture better, so a silicone doll will probably have more realistic hands, nails, feet, etc. Silicone also is heavier, so if your Dollerina is made of silicone, she’ll likely have a more full-bodied feel. 

Silicone dolls are also more temperature-resistant, so your silicone seductress will likely last longer (vs. a TPE sex doll), provided she’s cared for property. A silicone doll is also odorless, which many prefer; your T-P-Estelle, on the other hand, might come with artificial scents, or have a slight gum smell if no scent is added. 

TPE dolls tend to be more affordable than silicone sex dolls due to the cost of the material itself to the manufacturers. So depending on your budget, you may want to take that into consideration.

What is oral sex with a sex doll like?

Ahhh, going down. Whether you like giving or receiving, there are some cool features here. First, if you’re a penis-owner there are lots of things to love about getting a blow job from a sex doll, one of which is that you can actually design certain dolls (or purchase one that already has this feature) that can deep throat. 

Almost all life-sized sex dolls come with an inviting open mouth, just begging for you to stick your mighty cock into. The only downside to this glorious, openmouthed welcome is that a sex doll BJ won’t necessarily have that nice suction that you get from a real person. However, with the right kind of lubricant, you can still have an extremely pleasant experience.

Like going down? Realistic sex dolls have very true-to-life vulvas (the outside) and vaginas (the inside), so if you love giving head, you’re covered there, too. Again, you may want to consider some kind of warming device, or even just put your own hand or other body parts over the doll to help warm it up before you go downtown.

(By the way, if you’re planning on kissing your doll, your doll providing oral sex and kissing might not work well unless thoroughly cleaned. Cleaning your doll after all activities is very important for its longevity, so make sure you’re up on how to keep your doll happy and healthy.)

What is vaginal sex with a sex doll like?

Oral is all fine and dandy, but what does sexual intercourse feel like with a love doll? One of the main questions people have when considering becoming a sex doll owner (whether a male doll or a female doll) is whether sex with it will actually have a realistic feel. Will a sex doll’s vagina feel like the real thing? 

In a word, yes. Sex doll vaginas are usually designed based on real anatomy, and made to give you the same kind of pleasure you get from “real” intercourse. In fact, some people who have sex with female sex dolls say it’s hard to tell whether it’s a sex doll or a real woman’s parts. In short, sex with a sex doll can feel quite real, and you’ll probably want to thank the person (or company) who made sex dolls first.

Another thing to note about modern, high-end sex dolls is that they’re heavy. So if you like girl-on-top action, they may not be right for you … or you may want to diversify your sex doll lineup. For example, luxury sex dolls can be up to 75 lbs., which means it would be hard to get her up there mounted on you and also manipulate her whole body (unlike a real person, who can participate and ride you, a sex doll will only do exactly what you guide it to do). 

That said, there are tons of pleasurable positions to play with, and your first time is likely to be thrilling and perhaps even intoxicating. In one sex doll owner’s words about his first time, “I laid her on the bed on her back, spread her legs ... put a water-based lube in, and it was time. Here goes my sex doll virginity… and wow, it felt good. I just didn’t know what to expect, and in a lot of ways, it was not all that different from having sex with a real girl.”

Another major difference between sex with a real person and sex with a sex doll is the cleanup. Knowing how to clean a sex doll is very important. It’s a pretty involved process, and you don’t want to skimp on it. If you want to stay clean and healthy yourself and keep your doll in great shape for a long time, you’re going to need to spend time on the cleanup process. Your doll’s anus or vagina may be removable for easier post-coital clean-up activities. If this is something you prefer, you should make sure to select a doll with removable orifices. 

If you’re curious about some of the more basic sex doll stuff, like, for instance, how to use a sex doll, we’ve got you covered.

What is anal sex with a sex doll like?

So first of all, one pretty cool feature of getting a sex doll is that you can actually be involved in customizing your doll’s booty. That’s right — whether you want it huge and bouncy, firmer and moderately-sized, a more muscled bubble butt type, or anything else, depending on your manufacturer's customization levels, you can choose the ass you like.

And if it’s a silicone or TPE sex doll, it’s going to be a sweet ass. It will jiggle in all the right places, and the skin will feel almost exactly like human skin, especially once it has been warmed up.

Now let’s talk about ass play with your doll. If you’re into spanking, as mentioned, you’re going to love getting fresh with your doll’s behind. And the internal orifice will be based on anatomically-correct measurements. You can heat the doll’s anus up for a tighter sensation — it will definitely feel tighter than the vagina side. You’re sure to have nonstop fun at every turn, rearview included

If you already know that bangin’ it from the back is your preference, you can also get a doll that’s already set in that position, ready to go. Higher-end sex dolls will have an internal structure that allows them to be placed in many different positions, too, so don’t feel limited to just from the back if you want to experience all sex doll wonderland has to offer.

So what are you waiting for? Hop to it. Sexy time awaits. Check out our collection of male masturbators for high quality sex dolls and many other fun surprises.
