My experience buying her has changed my whole perception of the stereotypical opinion. She is not a sex object! Posing her in a cuddle position and falling asleep is so calming. I thought that you took her out the box, had sex and put her away afterwards. When you actually experience posing and holding her whilst watching TV in bed and falling asleep. It’s better than the real thing! She doesn’t “Talk!” She never gets moody either.
In Japan one can purchase inflatable love pillows or "dakimakura" that are printed with a life-size picture of a porn star or anime character. Other less common novelty love dolls include overweight, intersex, elderly and alien dolls, which are usable for pleasure but also tend to be given as gag gifts. Some inflatable dolls even have the form of children.
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.
