It also is much more difficult to clean period, since you can’t sterilize it. obviously, there are care instructions that come with your doll on how to clean a TPE sex doll, but if you’re not ready to take the initiative and clean it, then you might want to consider another alternative. Remember, this is an investment, and it is important that you should consider this factor as well.

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.[6] 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.
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. 
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.

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.
