In Japan, sex dolls are known as "Dutch wives" (ダッチワイフ datchi waifu), which now refers to relatively inexpensive dolls. Their name originates from the term, possibly English, for the thick rattan or bamboo bolster, used to aid sleep in humid countries by keeping one's limbs lifted above sweaty sheets. Orient Industry is considered to be the leading manufacturer of high-end silicone dolls in Japan, which started using another term "love dolls" (ラブドール rabu dōru) around 1998 to distinguish their dolls from the image of inflatable dolls associated with the term "Dutch wife". The term has stuck and is now used generally to refer to any high-end product. There is a business, Doru no Mori (Doll Forest) in Tokyo, that rents love dolls and rooms to male customers. In March 2007 the Japanese daily Mainichi Shimbun newspaper reported that there are also rental businesses that bring the dolls to the customer's home, and that the specialist love-doll magazine i-doloid has a print-run of 10,000 copies per issue.

This material is much more popular for many reasons. For starts, the obvious one is that it is much cheaper in terms of price, which is something that many people do consider, since TPE sex dolls are much more affordable, and silicone dolls can often cost a couple thousand dollars more. TPE does require a bit more care than silicone dolls, and they tend to need his in order to last longer, but it’s still a great type of doll to own.
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.
TPE is the epitome of sex dolls if you’re going for one that feels good, and that is flexible. While maintenance is much broader in spectrum in terms of what you got to do, sometimes for those of us that do want to work to preserve our sex dolls, this is the one for you. TPE sex dolls are a great option if this is what you’re looking for, and you should definitely think long and hard on this before you do choose to spend money on one, since often, this can be a big factor in the decision you make.
Reacting to the ongoing development of "sex robots" or "sexbots", in September 2015, Kathleen Richardson of De Montfort University and Erik Billing of the University of Skövde created the Campaign Against Sex Robots, calling for a ban on the creation of anthropomorphic sex robots. They argue that the introduction of such devices would be socially harmful, and demeaning to women and children.
With TPE there are many pros that many like to consider, and it I important to keep these in mind when you are buying one. For starters, TPE is way softer. It’s super soft, and you’ll notice that it feels realistic. If you’re getting this doll in order to help with sexual release, or to help prepare you for sexual encounters later on with someone else, this might be something to consider, since it is a whole lot softer, and it feels way better as well. If touch is your thing, then you should consider this.
