In this connection we may refer to fornicatory acts effected with artificial imitations of the human body, or of individual parts of that body. There exist true Vaucansons in this province of pornographic technology, clever mechanics who, from rubber and other plastic materials, prepare entire male or female bodies, which, as hommes or dames de voyage, subserve fornicatory purposes. More especially are the genital organs represented in a manner true to nature. Even the secretion of Bartholin's glans is imitated, by means of a "pneumatic tube" filled with oil. Similarly, by means of fluid and suitable apparatus, the ejaculation of the semen is imitated. Such artificial human beings are actually offered for sale in the catalogue of certain manufacturers of "Parisian rubber articles."[3]
The most expensive sex dolls (approximately $1,200 and up) are usually made from silicone (usually above $3,000 at 2016 prices) or thermoplastic elastomer known as TPE (below $3,000). Dolls made of either material can be very lifelike, with faces and bodies modeled on real people in some instances, with realistic skin material (similar to that used for movie special effects), and with realistic (or even real) hair. These dolls usually have an articulated PVC or metal skeleton with flexible joints that allows them to be positioned in a variety of positions for display and for sexual acts. Silicone or TPE dolls are much heavier than vinyl or latex inflatable ones (which consist mostly of air), but are roughly half the weight of a real human being of comparable size.
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.

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.
The most premium sex dolls are usually made from silicone or thermoplastic elastomer known as TPE. Dolls made of either material can be very lifelike, with faces and bodies modeled on real people in some instances, with realistic skin material (similar to that used for movie special effects), and with realistic (or even real) hair. These dolls usually have an articulated PVC or metal skeleton with flexible joints that allows them to be positioned in a variety of positions for display and for sexual acts. Silicone or TPE dolls are much heavier than vinyl or latex inflatable ones (which consist mostly of air), but are roughly half the weight of a real human being of comparable size.
Another thing to also watch out for is that this type of material is more sensitive, not just to the oils from our skin, but also the fabrics, not just from our clothes but also from doll clothing as well. Because it is sensitive, it often leads the doll to have stains left from clothing, and it is definitely sensitive to certain fabric types as well. This is important to remember, because some of us do like to dress our dolls up, and if you’re wondering if a doll can wear that, then you should check. TPE is porous, and typically if the stain gets on there, it can sometimes have trouble getting out.
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.

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.
