TPE vs Silicone

If you’re buying a sex doll, then you’re wondering whether or not you should buy a doll made of TPE or silicone. It’s important to be informed about these materials because this decision is going to have a big impact on how good or bad your experience with your sex doll is going to be. The internet is full of horror stories so I think we’re all agreed that you want to have the best experience possible, right? Okay, so let’s jump into it.























One of the things you really need to know is that the sex doll and sex toy industry isn’t regulated. That means that no government agency is verifying that the materials being used are what the manufacturers claim they are or that the materials are even safe for you to use. For that reason, I strongly recommend that you only buy your doll from an American based manufacturer because only an American based company can be held legally liable for lying to you or selling you a toxic product. That being said, it’s no coincidence that all of the American sex doll manufacturers like Realdoll and Mini Love Dolls use platinum silicone and all of the overseas manufacturers use TPE. That should raise your eyebrows.

Well, what are the advantages of silica gel compared with TPE? There are many. Platinum silica gel is very stable, which means that it will not produce oil, will not decompose over time, and will not lose shape. In addition, platinum silicone is odorless, hypoallergenic, chemically inert and non-toxic. If you want to disinfect with boiling water or heat for sex, it will not melt. The most important aspect of platinum silica gel may be its hydrophobicity, which means that it is less prone to mildew than TPE. Silica gel is also more lifelike than TPE, but we will save this question for another upcoming blog post.
Compared with TPE, silicone is the obvious winner, so if you want to buy a sex doll, it is definitely worth paying an extra price. However, this is why many websites selling TPE sex dolls begin to exaggerate the truth of their TPE sex dolls, so I will help you crack these lies.
No so-called medical grade, skin safety grade or food grade TPE is soft enough for sex dolls. This is because the softer the TPE, the greater its oil output.
There is no so-called mixing of TPE and silica gel. The mixing and curing methods of the two materials are very different, so this is impossible.
Platinum TPE is not true. They just want to confuse it with platinum silicone.
Most of the websites that sell dolls are not real manufacturers, so any promises are empty promises. In addition, the cost of transporting the doll back to China is sometimes more expensive than the sex doll itself.
Finally, the sex doll industry is full of fraud. If the price is too good to be true, then it is true. I cannot emphasize this point too much.
Finally, we understand that it is easy to be confused. There is a lot of bad information outside. I sincerely hope that you will know more about TPE and silica gel after reading this article.
