In this connection we may refer to fornicatory acts effected with artificial imitations of the human body, or of individual parts of that body. There exist true Vaucansons in this province of pornographic technology, clever mechanics who, from rubber and other plastic materials, prepare entire male or female bodies, which, as hommes or dames de voyage, subserve fornicatory purposes. More especially are the genital organs represented in a manner true to nature. Even the secretion of Bartholin's glans is imitated, by means of a "pneumatic tube" filled with oil. Similarly, by means of fluid and suitable apparatus, the ejaculation of the semen is imitated. Such artificial human beings are actually offered for sale in the catalogue of certain manufacturers of "Parisian rubber articles."[3]
With a TPE sex doll, there are a few cons that do come with this, so it is best to know these. One of the biggest problems is that it often can become sticky and tacky over time. This type of skin absorbs the oils from our hands and skin a whole lot more, which is why over time they do get sticky. However, you can use a renewal powder on this in order to help clean it up. But it is something that you should certainly keep in mind.
It’s also way cheaper. For many of us who are starting on our sex doll adventure, TPE is the best choice in many cases, since often, you might not have the money or a silicone doll. Silicone is super expensive, and it definitely is something that you might have a problem with. With TPE, you can get a sex doll and learn to experience it, and from there, you’ll be able to eventually get another doll if you so like. Obviously, it isn’t super cheap, but if you’ve decided to commit to a sex doll, and you’re still unsure of if you want to have a much more expensive option or not or you just don’t want to wait, then definitely consider the idea of going TPE with your choice, since it can definitely help.
Now, TPE stands for thermoplastic elastomer, which is essentially a mixture of polyvinyl chloride and silicone. This is a type of skin that is very soft, and it mimics the feeling of human skin. TPE is way more realistic in feeling and it definitely mimics the feeling of human skin. It also is much cheaper than silicone alternatives, sometimes even hundreds of dollars cheaper. TPE also allows you to move the doll around in various ways, since it has more flexibility. TPE dolls don’t really need to be bathed, but you can, just be mindful of the water. It also is hypoallergenic as well.
