What’s It Really Like To Use A Sex Doll?

For the last few years there has been on topic of conversation that often appears in newspaper headlines: sex dolls and sex robots. These lifelike dolls have been causing a stir. Some think that they are the best thing in the world and perfect for use, while others feel that the idea of using a sex doll is somehow wrong.

People feel that these sex robots and dolls might replace human interaction. They believe that men (because of course it is assumed that only men will use them) will stop talking to women in favour of bedding these elaborate sex toys. But is that really the case?

We aren’t so sure, and the best way to find out what it is like to use a sex doll is to talk to those with experience. So what is it actually like to use a sex doll?

Why do people buy sex dolls?

Before we look at what it is actually like to use a sex doll, we should first see what it is that drives people to buy them. Just like with other sex toys and fetish equipment, there are different reasons that draw people to search for their perfect sex robot.

For many, it isn’t simply because they are “creepy old perverts”. This is just one of the stereotypes around the users of sex dolls, as the Independent pointed out.

However, Matt Krivicke, a sculptor of toys, pointed out that the majority are “just people with a fascination for the human body”. This fascination could sometimes be a part of a doll fetish, but for most people, they simply want to have a sex toy with a difference.

They might be seeking companionship to try and fight loneliness, or they might have difficult with relationships. Or perhaps they have fetishes that they can’t explore with others? Dolls provide them with a way of trying new things in the bedroom without the risk of being ridiculed.

Using a sex doll

In theory, using a sex doll should be just like using any other sex toy for your own pleasure. But because it has a human form, it can change things entirely. For example, Grant Stoddard wrote about his experience on Nerve, stating his surprise over how realistic the doll was. “Grabbing her hand, I shrieked. Karen’s skeleton was discernible through her flesh, just like a real person’s”, making the dolls incredibly lifelike.

However, he states that “Real Doll sex doesn’t come close to sex with a human”, and this seems to be the general consensus among users. One Quora user wrote that “dolls are awesome for the physical pleasure part of sex”, but that they “lack in fulfilling the emotional intimacy component of sex”. And for many, this is exactly what they are looking for.

Some people don’t want to get into a relationship. They might find that they are too complicated, or they might feel that their heartbreak from past relationships makes it too difficult to open themselves up to a new one.

Using a doll feels great. They feel realistic and are fun, although some of the appeal of certain acts (such as anal) is taken away by the fact that there isn’t the same build up as there might be with sex. And for those with certain fetishes, they want that interaction. So while a sex doll might feel good for some things, it seems that a lot of users agree that sex dolls will not replace sex with another human being. Hopefully this means that we will see fewer “sex dolls to replace relationships!” headlines around.
