Cool Facts About Sex Dolls

Illustration for article titled Cool Facts About Sex Dolls

Sex Dolls Aren’t a Modern Invention
While our sex dolls are made with the most modern materials, and we use the latest technology to give you the best experiences ever, sex dolls have been around for centuries. In the 1600s, Dutch sailors would construct leather ‘masturbation puppets’. They later sold and traded these to the Japanese. Even today, the Japanese often refer to sex dolls as ‘Dutch Wives’. In the early 20th century, an Austro-Hungarian artist and jilted lover had a dressmaker construct a replica doll of his ex lover. However, this doll was more plush like than realistic.

Sex Doll Customization is Trending
Most people buy sex dolls ‘off the rack’. That’s not surprising. We certainly have a wide selection of dolls for a variety of tastes. Still, the number of customers buying custom sex dolls is definitely on the rise. Discerning customers aren’t always interested in a mass-produced doll. Instead, they want one that is designed to their specifications. We’re happened to provide this service so you can receive a doll with the body type and facial features you desire.

The modern sex doll, as we know it has origins in Germany. In America, sex dolls became popular when they began to be advertised in porn magazines in the late sixties. Of course, we’ve come a long way since then. Our silicone and TPE dolls are extraordinarily realistic and functional when compared to these inflatable or cheap vinyl models.

Sex Dolls Are Mostly a Guy Thing
It’s true! The majority of our customers are male. That doesn’t mean our customer base isn’t diverse. We have customers who live all over the world, and vary widely when it comes to sexual preference, income, careers, and other factors.

Even though most of our customers are men, we do have a few very loyal women who purchase our dolls. We’re happy to say that this number is growing. We believe this is because more women are becoming sex positive, and showing more confidence when it comes to meeting their own sexual and romantic needs.

Sex Dolls Are Not a Flotation Device
As silly as this sounds, there’s some history behind this warning. In 2011 a couple in Australia avoided drowning by using a sex doll as a raft. While it was wonderful that they were rescued, Australian authorities felt it was important to issue a warning to the public. A sex doll is not a viable substitute for an approved flotation device. So, if you take your doll out boating, wear your life preserver, and put one on her as well!


Final Thoughts: Aren’t Sex Dolls Cool?
We think sex dolls have a cool history, and an even cooler future. If you’re turned on by the idea of having your own sex doll, you clearly aren’t alone. Men have used and loved sex dolls for centuries. We’ve simply applied art and technology to make your sex doll experience even better.
