• How to Customise Your Sex Doll

    Whether male or female, sex dolls are designed to closely match the shape and feel of a real person, making masturbation as close to sexual intercourse as you can get. Sometimes cheap sex dolls can seemingly come up short in the realism stakes. You can lock your doll away in the cupboard and write off the experience, return your doll using our 365 returns policy and opt for a more expensive lifelike sex doll or alternatively - put in a little work of your own to make the most of your purchase. After all, if sex with your partner isn’t great, there’s always room for improvement and the same is true for you and your doll.

    This guide is geared to give you some ideas on how to improve the look and feel of your sex doll. If you find your doll unattractive, then you’re less likely to enjoy them and may even face performance issues. If it feels bad to have sex with a doll, then the purpose of having bought it is entirely defeated. It is possible to upgrade your dolls using things you can pick up here at Lovehoney and this guide will show you how to transform your dud into dynamite.


    How to add a masturbator to your sex doll

    Most blow up sex dolls are made from inflatable PVC with seams. There are some exceptions to the rule, with a few being made from seamless rubber and the more expensive lifelike sex dolls. The likelihood of you being unhappy with the feel of silicone sex dolls is comparatively small and the main issue with blow up dolls lies in the functional parts of the dolls - the genitals or masturbator. We measure the depth and width of all of our love dolls’ special places to give you the information you need to find the perfect upgrade. Even if your doll has built-in genitals, you may find that you’re still able to use a separate masturbator.

    The main problem most people find with their sex dolls is that the genitals just aren’t up to standard. Some dolls have insertable masturbators that users just don't feel are up to scratch, while with PVC dolls, users can find they have problems with chafing. There’s a simple solution - upgrade the genitals for something more satisfying.

    Check out the specs of your sex doll. For female sex dolls, measure the depth of the holes using a thin, blunt object. Insert it fully and mark on the measuring device how deep the doll is before removing it. Then check this measurement against a ruler.

    This doll is 6.5 inches deep. Next, give her a good, gentle stretch to see how wide a diameter you can create.

    Once you have these measurements, you can start looking for male masturbators that will fit her stats. Both the Doc Johnson UR3 Pocket Pussy and Doc Johnson UR3 Pocket Ass will happily fit in lots of sex dolls, transforming her genitals into luscious, real-feel masturbators instead of scratchy, seamed tunnels. Check out the Pocket Vaginas section of our Male Sex Toys for more ideas.

    1. Inflate your doll half way and close the valve.

    2.Gently push the masturbator inside your doll. If you have trouble, try using a long blunt object to help guide it in.

    3.Once in place, finish inflating the doll. The extra tension will hold the masturbator securely in place.

    How to add a dildo to your sex doll

    For male sex dolls if he has a detachable penis, he’ll have an O-ring style connector in his crotch that the base of the dildo or vibrator slots into. Measure the diameter of this hole and you’ll have his O-ring measurement. You can then match a new penis to this measurement in exactly the same way as you would match a strap-on dildo to a harness.

    Another way to do this is to measure the base of the included sex doll penis and match it to the base measurement of your desired dildo or vibrator. Generally most dildos with a flared or suction base are capable of fitting into your sex doll so long as you ensure that the base will not be too big or too small to fit in/stay in the gap. If in doubt, contact customer services with the measurements of the dildo included with your doll and they’ll be able to give you a list of compatible options. Dildos are also interchangeable on a male sex doll without the need to partially inflate or deflate first.

    How to make your sex doll more attractive

    It’s the unspoken rule of sex dolls that what’s hiding in the box rarely resembles the photos of the well-toned porn stars on the outside. Of course we don’t expect a replica of the star themselves, but the reality of a blow up can still be a disappointment.

    For an ultra-realistic doll you can expect to pay thousands of pounds, a budget that most of us couldn’t dream of stretching to. It makes more sense to get creative and make some minor modifications to the look of your doll to make the most of their assets.

    Problem  Solution
    Bad hair Buy your doll a new wig. There are lots of styles available to choose from and you can instantly brighten up and increase the realism of your doll with some flowing locks. Wigs can be easily affixed to sex dolls using a PVC or rubber adhesive or just popped on.
    Unattractive face A lot can be accomplished with a lick of paint. If she’s not beyond redemption, try using make-up to modernise her look and make her more attractive. You can also use acrylic paints if you’re confident for a more permanent enhancement. If that’s still not doing the trick, you can try the ‘Avid Special’ of using a photo mask of your favourite star, a blindfold to soften the lines of the face or if you’ll feeling especially kinky - a bondage hood or mask.
    No nipples That’s not right! If your doll has no nipples at all or just formed nipples, you can modify her by gluing on a nifty pair of prosthetic nipples.
    Weird feet Some dolls have their feet completely ignored in the designed process while others have beautifully-formed feet. You can always slip on a sexy pair of stockings (or socks for male dolls) to disguise strange feet or if you’re feeling flush try out a pair of sexy shoes. Our customer service team will be happy to size-match shoes for your doll.
    Unrealistic body shape Unfortunately most blow-up dolls are made from seamed PVC which isn’t always the most attractive thing to craft a body from. If the look of your dolls body is more horror than horny, clothes shopping for clubwear or sexy lingerie will transform their look AND feel. Opt for the smallest size for the perfect fit. You can even opt for a kinky costume or some fetish wear for a specialised look.

    Other ways to pimp your sex doll

    1.Make sure you use plenty of lube with your doll to improve the sensations you experience and reduce friction.

    2.Try using a bullet vibrator to increase the intensity of sensations. For dolls with two genital holes, you can insert the vibrator into the hole you’re not using to transform your doll into a sensational vibrating masturbator.

    3. By kitting your doll with more accessories, you can in effect create multiple dolls using the same unit. No two masturbators feel the same and by using different wigs and clothes, you can easily change the look of your realistic sex doll too.

      I enjoyed reading this article. Didn't realise how customisable sex dolls can get but this shows a lot of versatility. I bet a lot more people will be experimenting with their dolls now, appearance wise.
      Well written and thought out piece, Hella. The customised nurse doll looks good.

      It hadn't occurred to me before I'd spent a few weeks getting to grips with our doll collection here at LH, but the more I looked into their specs, the more I realised that I was missing a trick.

      It's surprisingly easy to adapt dolls to suit your requirements and I'm thinking of trying out a male doll to see how I get on, sod the gym. ^_^

      I've tried this with Foxy Roxy and the Doc Johnson UR3 Pocket Pussy for myself now, and I must say, well, it doesn't work out at all! It is WAY to tight, I was afraid that my dick might break. And yes, I've used plenty of lubricant. And no, I don't have a super big cock or something, more about the average size.
      So I don't know what this "guide" is still doing here.
