The covid-19 pandemic has had a massive effect on the social lives of individuals throughout the globe. The inability to have close up human contact has taken a toll on the sex lives of many individuals. Those who aren’t cohabitating with an intimate partner are unable to “get off” in the ways they previously were.  Masturbation alone has left many unsatisfied and humans being social creatures means that this alone will not suffice for many. In very related news, sex doll sales have seen a significant rise during this socially distanced period. Many find satisfaction and intimacy with these dolls that they cannot and have not found on their own.    Sex dolls are currently far more than props and toys, for many they can give that same intimacy and satisfaction one might receive from an intimate partner. This sudden spike in sales has left companies rushing to fill this new demand, some even going as far as having to hire new staff in order to fulfill the needs of their consumers.    Popular sex doll distributor SexDolls.com has received an increase of  approximately 52% among single men. Many will find this particular demographic’s interest in these products unsurprising; however the company also reported about a 33% increase in orders placed by couples. This data proves that single people are not the only ones wanting to utilize their increased time at home by experimenting with alternative methods for sexual release.   Whether they are willing to admit it or not sex dolls could offer much needed stimulation and release to many. If you find yourself considering adding a second (or third etc.) participant to your quarantine sex life you may find it a bit daunting, there are many different types of dolls and narrowing down your selection can be hard without information.    A sex doll is an investment like any other and that means should you wish to make such  a purchase you should be informed as to the types of dolls that exist and their unique traits.   Cloth and Stuffed Sex Dolls:   Now realism is usually the goal with sex dolls, however if that is of no importance to you the cloth and stuffed sex dolls are an excellent choice. Many of these dolls are fashioned to appear more like anime sex dolls than a real life woman. Luckily these dolls do come with inserts so you don’t need to worry about cleanup (also penis inserts, if you're that way inclined) If you want a doll that you can pose in different positions this is not the choice for you as they do not come with skeletons. For those who enjoy the aesthetic, a cloth doll is an easily stored light option.   Blow-Up Sex Dolls:   These dolls are likely what many immediately think of when they imagine a sex doll. These are usually made from a pvc material and can come with a silicone head as well as feet and hands. These dolls are less realistic however they do offer easy storage and are closer to reality than for example a cloth doll. Blow up dolls tend to be more affordable options for those who are not attempting to break the bank with their purchase. The lower cost however means that they do not fulfill a large range of needs and are essentially not far removed from something like a fleshlight or other masturbation tools.   TPE Sex Dolls :   TPE stands for Thermoplastic Elastomer or thermoplastic rubbers. These are basically made by mixing plastic and rubber. The mixture of materials makes these dolls nice and malleable. Though similar to a silicone doll, often TPE dolls can be quite a bit less costly. TPE dolls are able to be posed and can be quite realistic. One of their only drawbacks is that the porous nature of the materials that make them up makes them a bit more prone to cloth stains, this makes cleanup a bit more difficult but there are proven methods to deal with such things.Because it is porous it can also take up humidity and these dolls are not particularly resistant to heat, so keep these things in mind before a purchase.   Silicone Sex Dolls: These are the most high end type of sex dolls. Silicone sex dolls are softer and have a feel to them that mirrors skin quite well. The range of options for these dolls are essentially endless. Many of these dolls are posable and can even have changeable expressions! Silicone dolls require preparation before they are usable; the dolls require warming, powdering and lubricating before use. The care these dolls require may seem like a drawback however many enjoy the process as these are more realistic dolls and it can sometimes add to the feeling of companionship and care. Silicone dolls do tend to be the most expensive of the lot however, so if you are on a tighter budget these might not be for you.   Will you be one of the many new customers that these sex doll manufacturers have seen during the quarantine?
