TPE sex doll VS Silicone sex doll

Table of Contents

This is a question that we frequently get from customers. And to be able to answer it, it is important to understand the difference between both the materials, that is, silicone and TPE. Sex dolls are available in both materials.

So traditionally, sex dolls were made of silicone, but over time other materials like TPE started coming up. On one hand, silicone was used as it gives the skin of the love dolls a very realistic texture, but is expensive. On the other hand, TPE is cheaper and still maintains a fair quality without putting a hole in the customers pocket.

What is TPE?

TPE is a thermoplastic rubber which is made of materials with both rubber and plastic properties. It is used in day to day products, as it can be easily molded by pouring into molds in all shapes and sizes. It is much more affordable than silicone. In spite of the lower price, it has a soft texture, flexibility, and a molding ability. 

Its plastic cum rubber properties make it one of the best options to make sex dolls.

Some of the advantages of buying a TPE sex doll are: 

  • The quality to price ratio is amazing. It gives you a great deal to fulfill your sexual needs.
  • The appearance of the TPE dolls is very realistic.
  • The skin of the dolls that are made of TPE is soft and the dolls are pretty flexible. The more the flexibility, the better the sex positions.
  • They are warm to touch. It gives you the feeling of having intercourse with a real woman.
  • They are hypoallergenic tested.
  • The material is odorless.

Some disadvantages of buying a TPE sex doll are:

  • The skin of TPE dolls may get stained.
  • The material is porous, so cleaning it might become a challenge at times.
  • The quality of the TPE is also important. Some manufacturers don’t use good quality materials, and hence the sex dolls quality also drops.


What is Silicone?

Silicone is a combination of silicone polymer, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. It is the most commonly used material to make sex toys. It is generally known for its nonporous material.

The softness of the silicone will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. It is generally a heat resistant material.

Some of the advantages of buying a silicone sex doll are:

  • The private parts of a silicone sex doll are as close to reality as it gets. The vagina, anus, and boobs are easily customizable as per your preferences.
  • They also have incorporated heating systems owing to the heat resistance property of the material.
  • Silicone is a nonporous material, which makes it easier to clean and sterilize.
  • They are hypoallergenic tested.
  • They do not stain very easily.
  • The skin of these sex dolls is extremely smooth and soft.

Some disadvantages of buying a TPE sex doll are:

  • They are more expensive.
  • Some people find silicone material to be a little sticky, and they don’t feel comfortable using silicone sex dolls.
  • They are less flexible as compared to TPE dolls.



Both types of sex dolls are great and have similar properties. However, they both have their pros and cons. So it is important that you prioritize on what is more crucial for you.

If you wish to badly want to fuck a sex doll, you should not wait to save up for a silicone sex doll. Without a second thought, you should go ahead and buy a realistic TPE doll for yourself. But if you have the patience to wait for some time, and buy a silicone love doll, you should take your time and decide which one you want to buy, while you save for it. You can see a great collection of silicone sex dolls here.
