Due to the Chinese Spring Festival, the production of sex dolls will be paused from January 11 to 31. This may lead to delays in delivery times.

TPE Doll vs. Silicone Doll – Which Sex Doll Is Right For You?

Sex dolls are currently made from two different materials: TPE and silicone. The materials differ both in their manufacture and in their care needs and feel. TPE dolls, for example, are softer, whereas silicone dolls are more resistant and therefore have a longer lifespan. Which material is better for you is a matter of taste. You can have great fun in bed with both variants. 

Here, you will find a brief summary of the advantages and disadvantages of TPE and silicone. Do you want to know more about it? Then this post will help you to make the right decision for you and your future real doll.

Considerations When Buying A Sex Doll

In order to decide which material is best for you, you should first be clear about what expectations you have of your real doll.

"How important is it to you that a sex doll looks and feels particularly real?”

Answer: Both materials look and feel very real. However, due to its particularly soft texture, TPE is much more skin-like than silicone. However, this is easier and more precise to design, which means that high-quality silicone dolls usually look even more real.

"How much time and effort do you want to invest in caring for your sex doll?”

Answer: You should take good care of your sex doll, regardless of whether it is a TPE doll or a silicone doll. Otherwise, the material will become cracked and brittle. Real dolls made of TPE need more attention and care because the material is simply more prone to damage due to its velvety feel. Regularly oiling and brushing with baby oil and baby powder is an absolute must. Silicone dolls are a lot easier to care for.

"How much money can or do you want to spend on your sex doll?”

Answer: A real doll is an investment in your lust and intense sexual fun over the next few years. Of course, top quality also has its price. You can get a TPE doll at dolloro from 1,499 euros, and a silicone doll in our online shop from approx. 5,699 euros.

"Do you want a large harem or a lady love forever?”

Answer: If you are someone who needs a lot of variety and would like to build a whole harem of sex dolls, TPE sex dolls are probably a better choice. They are much cheaper, so you can treat yourself to a few. Silicone dolls, on the other hand, are an absolute luxury item and also more durable. If you are looking for a steady partner to be by your side forever, you will be best served with a premium luxury sex doll!

Material Science: TPE & Silicone Real Dolls

TPE and silicone are supposedly very similar and at the same time they have subtle and important differences. In the following paragraph, we explain exactly what TPE and silicone are, so that you get a better idea and decide on the right material for your real doll. 

What is TPE?

Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) is a mixture of plastic and rubber and consists of different oils; the main component of TPE is natural or synthetic rubber. It is a relatively new material in the manufacture of the dolls, but its positive properties make it very popular with manufacturers and customers. The majority of TPE sex dolls are now made from TPE. The reason for this is not only the low price, but also the realistic feel of the doll's skin. It is characterized by its soft, velvety surface and immediately returns to its original shape after being stretched, which means that TPE dolls are very flexible and can easily assume many positions.

With TPE sex dolls, the focus is on realism in terms of feel, which you will immediately notice every time you have sex with your sweetheart, when the soft material of the breasts and buttocks move rhythmically. To improve sex with your love doll, you can take advantage of the uncomplicated heat absorption properties of TPE.
But TPE also has a few disadvantages that should not be ignored. A doll made of TPE needs more intensive care, as bacteria and germs can form more easily. Therefore, TPE dolls have to be cleaned regularly and very thoroughly, which is not a problem with the right tools and a little practice. Another drawback is the greater sensitivity and softness of TPE, which can more easily lead to damage such as scratches and cuts. TPE can, however, be processed and deformed very easily in connection with the right heat. Therefore, damage to TPE dolls is much easier to repair than silicone dolls.

Conclusion: If you attach great importance to a real-body feel, you should opt for a TPE doll. Not only do you save money, but it also looks real and natural. The skin is perfectly comparable to human skin, which is why TPE sex dolls are so attractive. But always be aware that you have to take good care of a TPE doll!

Silicone Love Doll

Silicone consists of a mixture of silicon polymer and carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, and is therefore also suitable for allergy sufferers who often react to plastics with unsightly skin irritations.

All in all, silicone dolls are firmer than TPE dolls and therefore much more resistant. Like TPE, silicone dolls feel soft, but have a much smoother skin. This makes them look a little more artificial than TPE sex dolls, which many customers find very appealing. With silicone, human faces can be made in a much more detailed and realistic manner. Even small wrinkles, pores and veins can be depicted with silicone. The genitals can also be made more realistically and in greater detail, which speaks for a doll made of silicone. They're easy to clean, hypoallergenic and less prone to heat, water, or staining. In addition, this love doll stores heat for a very long time, which is a great advantage if you want to warm her sex apertures.

They not only look very high-quality, they are too. Although they cost a little more, they convince with their longevity, which means that they can be a loyal partner to you for many years.

Conclusion: If you attach great importance to your love doll being ultra-realistic and very resistant, and if you want her by your side for a long time, then we recommend a doll made of silicone. It's a bit more expensive, but it will pay off in the long run.

The Great Comparison TPE Doll vs. Silicone Doll

Now you have a lot of information about TPE sex dolls made of TPE and silicone. We have summarized the most important pros and cons for you here.

 TPE Doll Pros

  • TPE is a very soft material. This makes TPE sex dolls particularly real to the touch.
  • Due to the nature of the material, TPE love dolls are elastic and still look very natural in different positions.
  • TPE skin stores heat quickly and for a long time and therefore feels very human.
  • They are cheaper than silicone dolls and there is a wide selection of different models

TPE Doll Cons

  • Because of their sensitive material, they are more likely to get stained, e.g. by dark clothing, and can be damaged more easily.
  • They sometimes feel tacky, but this can be remedied with baby powder.
  • They require a lot of care and need to be cleaned and cared for regularly to enjoy them for a long time.

Silicone Doll Pros

  • They usually have a very detailed and realistic design – especially the face and genitals.
  • Dolls made of silicone can also store heat, and are not as sensitive to heat as TPE sex dolls.
  • These silicone dolls are easier to clean and less susceptible to bacteria formation.
  • They are very resistant.
  • Thanks to their high-quality material, they hardly need to be repaired.

Silicone Doll Cons

  • Since the production of them is more complex and the material costs higher, they are more expensive than the TPE alternative.
  • The choice is usually somewhat more limited.
  • The skin feels smoother than that of TPE sex dolls, and therefore not as real.
  • Dolls made of silicone are generally a little firmer than those made of TPE, but have less flexibility.


Which material you ultimately choose depends entirely on your preferences and your wallet. Of course, silicone is quite high-quality and convinces with a particularly realistic design and flawless feel. 

For a perfect sex experience with a silicone doll, you have to be willing and able to invest several thousand euros, but you can look forward to years of top quality.

TPE dolls are a great alternative, and the best way to have fun with several hot sex dolls. They are definitely more prone to damage and require regular maintenance. With a TPE sex doll, you can of course expect realistic design, but you cannot compare it with that of a silicone doll.
