What exactly is TPE?

The term "thermoplastic rubber" is widely used to describe it.

It's a physical blend of thermoplastic and elastomeric copolymers or polymers (typically plastic and rubber) formed from thermoplastic and elastomeric components.

Because TPE can be injected and molded into goods that require the usage of rubber, it is employed in everyday products. We're confident you'll discover this substance in some of your household items. It's less expensive than silicone and offers qualities like flexibility, moldability, and a soft texture.

TPE's qualities make it one of the greatest materials for manufacturing lifelike sex dolls at a low cost.

 Positive aspects of a TPE sex doll:

  • Excellent value for money. Overall, TPE dolls are less expensive than silicone dolls while maintaining high quality.
  • It appears to be realistic and lifelike.
  • TPE is more pliable, squeezable, and soft, allowing doll collectors to put their dolls in a wider range of poses.
  • It remains warm, but not excessively so.
  • Hypoallergenic

Negative aspects of a TPE sex doll:

  • It's possible that it'll stain more easily.
  • Because it's a porous material, cleaning it is more difficult, and it can't be disinfected.
  • Quality, flexibility, thickness, and other characteristics are determined by the manufacturer's mix or mixes, and hence differ from one to the next.

What exactly is silicone?

Silicone is utilized in soft sexual toys because it is long-lasting, easy to clean, and won't degrade when exposed to petroleum-based lubricants. Silicon polymers are combined with carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen to create this substance. Silicone has long been used in the sex toy and sex doll industries.

Silicone rubber is used in sex dolls, and depending on the formulation, it can be very soft or very firm. Due to the heat resistance of silicone, you can get silicone dolls with heating systems that can be heated for longer periods of time.

Positive aspects of a silicone sex doll:


  • It has the ability to be heated and combined with a heating system.
  • Because it is non-porous, it is easy to clean and disinfect. It's allergy-friendly (similar to TPE)
  • It should be more water and stain resistant.
  • It has a natural and gentle feel to it.

Negative aspects of a silicone sex doll:

  • The pricing is quite high.
  • Because silicone can be sticky for certain consumers, baby powder is recommended.
  • It does not have the same softness as TPE. These dolls are more difficult.
