At the middle market price-range ($100 to approximately $1,000), dolls are made of thicker vinyl or heavy latex without welded seams or a polyurethane and silicone mixture, typically surrounding a foam core. Most have plastic mannequin-style heads and styled wigs, plastic or glass eyes, and occasionally properly moulded hands and feet. Some vinyl dolls can contain water-filled body areas such as the breasts or buttocks. Latex dolls were made in Hungary, China and France but only the French manufacturer Domax now remains in production.
CybOrgasMatrix dolls used an elastic gel, which they claimed to be superior to silicone in elasticity, shape memory, and durability. Both this company and the company "First Androids" once offered pelvic thruster motor, audio capability and heated orifices, though these options are no longer available. Several modern doll manufacturers now offer the last option on their silicone dolls, with the addition of an internal heating system.
An artificial vagina is a device designed to imitate the female sex organ. To achieve this, it will generally be made of a soft material, lubricated, and sometimes heated. An artificial vagina for the purposes of sexual stimulation is essentially an aid to human masturbation; and is also known as masturbation aid, masturbator, or pocket pussy. It is designed to simulate the sensation of sexual intercourse on the erect penis and to induce orgasm and ejaculation.
Some companies manufacture cloth sex dolls using the same technology that is used to create plush toys. With widespread cultural use of the internet amongst younger generations, numerous forums exist for amateurs who create their own sex dolls from fabric or other materials. There are even mailing lists for discussing techniques and experiences with MLDs (material love dolls).
The material is also elastic in nature. The material will allow you to move the doll around a whole lot more than a silicone doll. You might notice that some of the silicone dolls tend to have a limited range of motion. TPE can take a lot more force, and are way more flexible, so they can handle a lot more positions, which is pretty neat, and it definitely is something to consider.
