You must know the type of material used in the manufacture of sex dolls.

Safety Tips for Sex Dolls

Here are some safety tips that you should consider to have safe and healthy sex with your cute little partner as many times as possible.

1. Always buy TPE or silicone material

Experts in the field stress the importance of choosing the right material to make your sex life tension-free and fun. Sex dolls come in a variety of materials, including thermoplastic elastomers, silicone, plastic and rubber. Studies have shown that certain materials and chemicals can have harmful effects on your health and safety in the long run. While most sex doll manufacturers follow all the necessary guidelines to prioritize the health of their customers, unfortunately the industry is still in its infancy and there is no comprehensive system in place to check the safety measures taken by manufacturers.

As a rule of thumb, to avoid the details involved, always buy TPE or silicone material. Neither of these materials will cause any health problems or skin irritation to the owner. No cases of significant skin damage have been reported with silicone or TPE sex dolls. More importantly, both materials are heat resistant and can be used for long periods of time without causing skin burns. One of the prominent reasons why thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and silicone (Silicon) are the materials of choice for sex doll manufacturing is that they are hypoallergenic and do not produce any allergic reactions with human skin.

In addition, silicone and TPE dolls are easier to wash and clean compared to other materials. However, these sex dolls are a bit expensive compared to rubber or plastic dolls – but it is worth spending a few hundred dollars extra to be on the safe side.

2. Buy dolls from a reliable company

For many readers, this may come as a surprise, but our research shows how difficult it can be to review the safety of the materials and quality of sex dolls when buying them. The sex doll industry is increasingly booming and many scammers have infiltrated the market to steal customers’ money. You may think you are buying a high quality TPE or silicone sex doll at the original price, but you may be getting a counterfeit product. Ultimately, low-quality materials are bound to cause health problems for homeowners.

To avoid being duped, start looking for dolls to buy from reputable manufacturers and learn the details of the product before you buy. Do not hesitate to ask the seller for more information and assess whether the product is worth buying. Sex doll professionals advise consumers not to buy dolls from e-commerce giants such as Amazon, eBay and Alibaba, as these platforms are full of unverified vendors.

3. Clean your sex doll regularly

Like any other product, sex dolls need a lot of care and maintenance from their owners. Cleaning your sex doll is the most crucial thing that directly determines whether the sex doll is safe or not. Treat her like your cute little buddy, she can get sick and/or give you an infection if not cleaned regularly.

Experts insist that you should wash a doll between each sexual act. Although sex dolls do not pose a risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs), she can still attract nearby bacteria to her love hole (vagina, anus) if she is not cleaned for a long time after sex. Pay special attention to cleaning her orifices, as they can enter your love organ and require extra care. After cleaning, make sure that not a drop of water remains in her orifice, as dampness accelerates the growth of mold – a poison to your sex doll that will immediately begin to rot its material.

Clean her love hole after every intimate encounter

You don’t have to wash her every time you have sex with her. Simply use the pump to squirt water into her hole (anus, vagina, mouth) and then dry it completely. The whole activity takes barely a few minutes. Repeated use of sex dolls without washing may lead to recurrent yeast infections. In addition, her hole may become covered with dust and other particles while in storage, which can lead to bodily harm. Therefore, cover her love holes with a paper towel or a piece of cloth to make sure they are completely dry. In addition to regular genital cleaning, your doll needs to be thoroughly cleaned every two to three weeks.

What to use to wash your doll

Use cleaning products made specifically for sex dolls, such as mild soap and water. Use a toothbrush to remove debris from her love hole. Using other shampoo soaps will shorten the life of your sex doll because sex doll materials are sensitive to harsh chemicals.

Dry her off.

Allow the doll to dry thoroughly before storing. Gently wipe her body with a dry towel to remove moisture. A hair dryer goes a long way in drying her hair and other parts of her body, but don’t let it get too close to her skin or apply too much heat. The safest way to dry her is to air dry. Let her sit in front of a window for an hour or so until completely dry.

Once dry, powder your doll, which will allow the sex doll to get rid of any unnoticed moisture or absorb residual moisture. Finally, store the doll until the next time.

4. Don’t use strong lotions or creams

Many sex doll lovers like to dress their babies in sexy clothes and makeup. Dress her up with light clothing to avoid skin discoloration. Likewise, in most cases, lotions and oils are not suitable for your lover’s skin. The same goes for perfumes, colognes and other roll-on clothing. Your doll is not a product that you should experiment with.

However, you can apply baby oil on her skin and make it glow like the moon. Don’t rub her body hard or it will cause deformation. You can ask the seller for advice on which oil or lotion she can use after washing.

5. Store it in a cool and dry place

Be sure to store your doll in a cool, dry place. This is because sex doll materials, while heat resistant, can warp over time in hot places, making them less attractive, or worse, unsafe for sex. Keep your lovely partner away from heaters, compressors or direct sunlight. Also, store them in a less humid environment, as it will also warp your doll, albeit a bit.

The best place to store her is in a closet – standing up. The closet should be dry and free of dirt and dust particles. It is best to dry and disinfect your companion before storing it.

6. Never share your sex doll

Just as you would never agree to share your wife with a friend or peer, never share your sex doll with anyone – no matter how intimate you are. Sex is a highly private affair, and it should remain that way. Many people believe that a sex doll is thoroughly cleaned after each use and that two or more partners can share her without risk of spreading infection or disease – but things don’t always work out the way you’d like them to.
