Sex Doll and Robot Questions Answered

What are Sex Dolls?

A sex doll is a masturbation aid in the shape of a person or part of a person. Sex dolls (or love dolls) sometimes represent just the pelvis of a sexual partner, featuring a realistic vagina, anus and/or penis. Realistic sex dolls in the shape of a whole person are more common.

​Sex dolls range from cheap, blow up dolls made of vinyl to the much more expensive and realistic silicone sex dolls. The former are often throw-away toys which expire with a puncture or burst seam after just a few uses. Many of them feature as a ‘special guest’ at stag parties and are never used at all. Blow up dolls often come with a basic hole which can be used alone or along with a handheld masturbator.

More advanced sex dolls sometimes feature shaped orifices with ridges, bumps or vibrations and some even feature sound, and sucking and licking movements. They are a more detailed, with realistic features and molded bodies. Top quality life like sex dolls are sturdier than blow up dolls and are often made of silicone for a much more lifelike feel.

​At the very top of the scale, sex dolls have become very realistic and can be designed for all tastes. One line of Japanese sex dolls has been described as “so lifelike they’re scary’. Their skin, hair and eyes are very convincing and they can be customized to suit the taste of the buyer.

What are Realistic Sex Dolls?

Improvements in technology mean that life like sex dolls are becoming more and more convincing. The most lifelike sex dolls are in the shape of full sized women, with detailed features and accurate anatomy. Some have moveable limbs that enable them to be positioned in different ways.

Realistic sex dolls are a lot more appealing that their blow-up vinyl counterparts. They are usually made from a high-quality silicone or thermoplastic and some of the best ones of the market look almost frighteningly real.

One of the biggest brands of life like sex dolls is Real Doll.

What is a Real Doll?

The come in male and female models and can be customized with a change of clothing, make-up or wigs. The dolls are made of silicone and feature at the higher end of the market.

How to Use a Sex Doll?

One of the main advantages of a sex doll is that they never have a headache! But they are not completely without needs; in order to get the best from your sex doll it’s worth learning to use it correctly.

Lubricant is essential and, as with all sex toys, you need to check that you are using the correct type of lube with your doll. Silicone based lubes can damage expensive silicone sex toys so it’s always worth checking that you have the right stuff.

The actual use of the doll is pretty obvious and I don’t think any readers will have a lot of trouble figuring it out. The doll can be dressed and made up according to your taste, or used ‘as is’. There might be a choice of orifices, but that’s about all the thinking that’s involved; the rest should be fairly straightforward!

Your sex doll will not require cuddling afterwards, but it will need a good clean. Hot, soapy water will be suitable for most dolls but, as with the lube, check the manufacturer’s recommendations to avoid any risk of damage.

What are Sex Robots?

Fleshlight Launch Review

Sexual intercourse with realistic robots that walk, talk, move, and even think, like real people is still the stuff of sci-fi. However, with advances in robotics moving so fast, it has become a subject controversial enough to provoke some debate about the ethical implications of lifelike (and sentient) robots as sex objects. The makers of Pepper, a robot programmed to respond to emotional triggers, have even included a clause in their user contract that forbids sex acts between user and robot.

Roxxxy the Sex Robot is another matter. She is built like a woman, comes with a ready-made personality and can even engage in limited conversation. As the name implies, Roxxxy’s main function is sex and the robot has a certain amount of movement in intimate areas that add to the pleasure. Roxxxy’s figure is modelled on that of a real woman, but the appearance is not as realistic as some of the better sex dolls on the market.

The new Fleshlight Launch automated, interactive stroker comes pretty close to ​the ​robotic vagina experience. Not only the inserted Fleshlight sleeve feels great but ​it really feels like someone else ​is involved in the action. Read the Launch review to learn more.

While the thinking household robot, as seen in science fiction, is still a thing of the future, there are some other, very real, robotic sex toys currently on the market. Moveable, vibrating masturbation sleeves which mimic the feeling of a hand job or blow job are widely available and ride on sex machines are also increasingly popular. Dildos with a mechanical in-out action and even spanking machines are all available to buy.

More features have also been added to sex dolls over the years, but many have proved unpopular or unworkable and have been withdrawn from the market. The company Real Dolls worked on a doll that would writhe around during sex and the Moaning Lisa was a doll who responded to touch (in the right spots) with a gratifying moan.

Neither of the above is currently available to buy, but we can be sure that companies are working to improve these features and introduce others, including artificial intelligence, all leading to a more realistic experience.

What can Sex Robots Do?

Sex toys with robotic features come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and have several possible uses. Realistic sex dolls are, for the most part, motionless, and an intelligent robot that cleans your house, fetches your shopping and is available to fulfil your sexual fantasies at the end of a long day is still the stuff of science fiction. But robotics is improving all the time and there is a variety of sex toys that already feature some kind of mechanical movement.

Masturbation sleeves like the Alpha Stroker 2 are made to mimic the feel of a hand job while the Autoblow 2 goes one step further, giving you the very real impressions that you are enjoying the perfect blow job.

Sex dolls that can vibrate or writhe during intercourse have already been invented. There is a head with a convincing mouth that sucks and licks and gyrating hips could soon be added. Features such as talking and a certain amount of interaction have been tried. Some of the above have been abandoned due to a lack of demand, but there is one female shaped sex robot still available; Roxxxy the Sex Robot. Roxxxy has some movement, the ability to speak and is designed for one purpose: sex.

In short, robotic sex toys can suck, lick, pull and thrust, and even talk. It seems that we have mechanical motions, and sounds, of sex covered. It remains to be seen how far we will go, or want to go, in the production of robots as substitutes for a real relationship.

What is the Best Sex Robot?

As far as realistic looking robots go, Roxxxy the Sex Robot is an expensive but viable option. Roxxxy does move, though her movement looks awkward, and will hold a conversation with her user. While the idea is there, there is definitely room for improvement in the appearance and sound of Roxxxy the Sex Robot; it will be interesting to see what the future holds.

If we are considering all mechanical sex toys as robotic, then the Autoblow 2 has to be the most impressive sex aid currently available. Blow jobs on demand; what’s not to love? Reviews for the crowdfunded invention have been excellent.
