Also, be careful about bacteria. The problem with TPE is that it’s super porous. That means that the bacteria on your hands and such can get into the skin. Not only that, the orifices are typically prone to absorbing the bacteria from semen and other such excretions. It is important to realize that since it is porous, it means that you have to clean this up excessively each time. You can’t let this sit after you’re done with it, because the moisture from this will be left in the cavities, and from there, it can grow mold, and that often is pretty gross. That means that if you’re going to get a TPE doll, don’t let it sit with any sort of moisture inside of it, because let’s face it, you don’t want a moldy doll. This also might not be the doll for you if you’re not the type that is okay with doing a tiny bit of cleanup after sex, since often that is what is required, and it is something that you will need to consider.
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.
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.
