  1. How to Choose a Sex Doll

    Sex dolls provide sexual stimulation by allowing you to get hands-free penetration in positions virtually identical to those you would with a partner. They're closer to the physical experience of having sex than handheld masturbators and the experience of sex with dolls is something many people are keen to explore.

    These are Lovehoney customer favourite sex dolls:

    To the sex doll virgin, the range of dolls can be confusing and knowing exactly where to start can be frustrating. It's better to do research before buying to avoid a disappointing purchase.

    We sell two distinctive types of sex dolls: inexpensive blow up sex dolls and advanced lifelike sex dolls. This guide will help you choose the right sex doll for you.

    Blow Up Sex Dolls

    These are very basic sex dolls that often don’t incorporate any masturbators. Instead, they have plain holes incorporated into the design. You can use them ‘as is’ once you’ve given them a good dose of sexual lubricant, but it is generally better to pair them up with a pocket pussy or realistic dildo of your choice.

    If you already have a handheld stroker you enjoy, buying a basic blow up doll that you can put it into is a great way to amp-up your sexual self pleasure. See our step-by-step guide to adding a fake vagina to a blow up doll.

    If you’re looking to try sex dolls for the first time, opting for an inflatable sex doll will cut costs while allowing you to become familiar with sexual simulation with a doll. Brandy and Roxy are two popular models suitable for beginners.

    These entry-level sex dolls are a great way to experience a more realistic sensation without worrying about storing your doll. Once you're done, simply deflate and put them back in the box.

    Lifelike Sex Dolls

    Realistic Blow Up Sex Dolls

    Kimmi Lovecok Realistic Sex Doll

    These are a super-pimped out version of the basic inflatable sex doll. Instead of plain tunnels, they are often equipped with built-in or removable genitalia all of their own. They often come included with a type of vibrator to intensify sensations and some even talk, suck or lick. They also come with some extras such as an air pump for inflating, a storage bag, renewer powder to keep them in shape etc.

    Realistic blow up sex dolls also tend to be more attractive than basic blow-up sex dolls. Usually they have their own hair, moulded hands and more realistic features that add to the experience during use. If you have the cash to splash, a realistic blow up sex doll is also great for a beginner as it requires no modification to be sensational.

    Realistic Sex Dolls

    These are the top-notch dolls that are designed and made to be extra special. Their bodies are moulded, sewn or sculpted to offer a sturdier doll form that feels more like a person, while their usable parts have been specially created to be ultra realistic. These dolls come as a whole or sometimes just in segments, meaning you can buy as much (or as little) of a silicone sex doll as you like. After all, very few people think to use a sex doll’s arm or leg during play.

    These lifelike sex dolls do have their downsides. Obviously there is a huge price difference between these dolls and the realistic blow up dolls. The extra money does enhance the realistic feel, but it does make the purchase of these dolls more of an investment. Real-feel dolls like this are incredibly heavy, making them difficult to move and store which can be an issue for those worried about others finding their dolls or a shortage of storage space. The materials are also much more vulnerable to degrading and require lots of careful cleaning and powder sprinkling to keep them in good shape. To the dedicated buyer, these cons are by far outweighed by the ultra-realistic sexual simulation that these advanced dolls offer.
