Silicone and TPE are both high-quality materials used to make sex dolls. Silicone is ordinarily known as more durable but TPE as the most realistic. If you are looking for the most similar sex doll to a woman, then you should choose TPE skin.
Their key characteristics are:
It is slightly more compact than TPE and therefore more durable.
Easier to clean.
Suitable for human contact.
Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE)
Natural and gentler touch.
Realistic ‘jiggling' of breasts and ass.
It is more elastic. It allows the dolls to be more flexible at elbows, knees, ankles, etc.
Pleasant heat retention.
Suitable for human contact.
Less durable than silicone in case you do not care for it properly.
Most of our customers choose the built-in vagina as it offers the most realistic experience; nevertheless, the easiest to clean and replace is the removable vagina. It depends on what is more important to you. Complete realism versus something easy to pop-out and clean after use.

The most effective way to store your sex doll is vertical, hanging in your closet. We offer a suspension hook which is the best option to preserve your sex doll. Prolonged exposure to sunlight might dehydrate the skin of your sex doll. Some of our customers store her in a sitting position, others lying on her back. Both popular storage positions are fine as long as you make certain she is not wearing any tight clothing or dark colour fabrics for a extended period. Dark colour fabrics or objects like newspapers may stain the doll's skin after prolonged exposure.
Make sure your sex doll while stored is far from:
Dark colour fabrics. These may stain the doll's skin if in contact for a prolonged period of time.
Tight clothing. Elastic bands may produce lasting marks if they are left on during storage.
Sunlight. The sun may damage her skin. Facial features could fade unevenly.
Extreme temperatures. Your sex doll is delicate as a woman. Do not expose her to hot and cold temperatures. It may warp your doll's feature over time. Normal fluctuations are not a problem. Only below freezing and extreme heat should be avoided.
Pressure points. If anything is pressuring for a period of time the skin of your sex doll you might find indentations. That is why is so important to suspend the doll in the air or rest on a soft surface.
You should keep your doll away from dark fabrics and tight clothing. If you would like dark clothing, you should wash them before. After enjoying your sex doll remove the dark clothing from her. The best clothing is light coloured and loose fabrics.
All dolls are sent with a free cleaning kit to keep them always in the best shape. In addition, you will get the adhesive for reparations, one piece of clothing, a small bottle of Extreme Remove to erase possible stains on the skin and nails to replace if needed.
