Doll fetishism is a sexual fetish in which an individual is attracted to dolls and doll like objects such as figurines. The attraction may include the desire for actual sexual contact with a doll, a fantasy of a sexual encounter with an animate or inanimate doll, encounters between dolls themselves, or sexual pleasure gained from thoughts of being transformed or transforming another into a doll.
Also, some argue that while it is more realistic to the touch, it might not be to the feel. Because of the fact that the TPE skin is much softer, sometimes the heads feel a little bit different. It might feel softer to the touch, and you might almost feel a bit weird since you can sometimes press the head in. This might be something to consider if you’re worried about potentially ruining the reality of the situation because of the way the doll feels.
The final thing, is that it is also hypoallergenic, and that means that you won’t’ get allergic to it. With some people, they are unfortunately allergic to silicone, which can be a problem over time. You might want to consider this if you know that you have a silicone allergy and you still want a sex doll, since it can help alleviate this problem if you do have it.
A 1982 attempt to import a consignment of sex dolls into Britain had the unintended consequence of ending the law against importing "obscene or indecent" items that were not illegal to sell within the UK. Having had the dolls seized by Her Majesty's Customs and Excise officers, David Sullivan's Conegate Ltd. took the case all the way to the European Court of Justice, and won in 1987. Britain was forced to lift its stringent import prohibitions dating from 1876, because for imports from within the European Community they constituted a barrier to free trade under the terms of the Treaty of Rome.
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.
