1. Why Do People Use Sex Dolls?

    Hannah Harper Authentic Vibrating Realistic Sex Doll Ever wondered why people use sex dolls? From the blow up dolls we usually see on hen or stag dos to the beautifully crafted and most lifelike sex dolls, these artificial companions can leave some people asking, "why?"

    Whether you're thinking about choosing a sex doll yourself or are just curious about what people see in an inflatable companion, we explain the benefits of sex doll ownership and why they're a great sex toy.

    1. The most realistic sex possible

    Probably the most important reason people use a sex doll is for the physical sexual pleasure. Sex dolls are fitted (or can be fitted) with a masturbator or dildo that provides intense stimulation and leads the user to a powerful and satisfying climax. By mounting these masturbators and dildos in a sex doll, the user experiences a sexual experience closer to real sex rather than masturbation.

    2. Practice makes perfect

    Sex dolls are an excellent way to improve your sexual performance and a sex doll can improve a lover’s techniques and positions. By masturbating with a sex doll instead of a sex toy or your hand, you are closely matching the movements you make during sex with a partner. You can therefore figure out how best to stimulate the clitoris in certain positions or get the deepest-possible penetration, for example. Experimentation like this can often be tiresome with your partner and the more positions fail, the more likely you are to resort to tried and tested methods. A doll is much more patient in this respect.

    3. 'Edging' towards a better orgasm

    Many men and women find that they are able to use a sex doll as a virility training device, allowing them to extend the duration of lovemaking with their partner. If premature orgasm or ejaculation causes issues in your sex life, masturbating with a sex doll will help you ‘wind your orgasm down’ while continuing sexual activities.

    4. Hands-free pleasure

    The sex doll offers a platform for varied masturbation for those with physical impairments that may prevent them from operating a hand-held device. Someone who is unable to manipulate handheld devices will often find that they can derive sexual pleasure from a sex doll.

    5. A no-strings threesome

    Sex dolls can also find their places within relationships. Some couples opt to substitute a third partner with a sex doll, allowing them to experiment with threesomes without risking emotional damage to their relationship.

    6. A sex doll's always up for it

    If one partner has a higher sex drive than the other, a sex doll can often be a suitable platform for satisfying the libido to avoid potential infidelities.

    7. Variety is the spice of life

    Both guys and gals suffer from the dreaded ‘tired arm’ during self pleasuring which often frustratingly happens at the point of orgasm. By providing a platform for hands-free stimulation, sex dolls allow you to use various body parts and positions to stimulate yourself, all without the need to grip something tightly in your hand.
