Sex Doll Categories

There are many types of sex dolls, so we will only discuss a few in this section. But first, let’s talk about the difference between TPE and silicone, two of the most common sex doll materials:

TPE Dolls

TPE is softer than silicone, allows for more flexibility, and also costs less. While TPE conducts heat well, it’s not a match for excessive heat. TPE is hypoallergenic, meaning you won’t get an allergic reaction from it.

TPE often feels more lifelike than silicone, but this depends on the quality level of the silicone. TPE can feel sticky if you use it without talcum powder, so keep that in mind.

The material is vulnerable to stains and porous. Porous materials are more difficult to maintain as they harbor bacteria more easily. For this reason, it’s very important to ensure your doll dries completely after washing.

Silicone Dolls

Silicone dolls have more realistic and detailed features and aren’t as sensitive to heat as TPE. Silicone is easy to sterilize and clean, low maintenance to care for, and resistant to stains.

Like TPE, it’s hypoallergenic and won’t cause allergic reactions. It isn’t as soft as TPE and has a less realistic “wobble” effect. Silicone is also sticky to the touch with talcum powder, and overall, costs more than TPE.

To be clear, both materials are good quality, so you’ll have to decide which features are most important to you when choosing a doll.

Now that you’re a bit more informed on materials, below are the most common categories of sex doll:

Luxury (Realistic)

Realistic sex dolls are the best quality options you can get. They’re made with topnotch materials and are typically created by hand. Luxury love dolls are usually human-sized and come with different outfits.


Many realistic dolls have three orifices to use along with posable limbs. In addition, this category of doll will have realistic, soft-feeling skin. She’ll also have a more realistic face than lower cost options.

As you can see, this is the best category to buy from if you’ve got the dough.

Choose between a doll modeled after your favorite porn actress to a fully custom option with every detail perfectly in place.

Some people even choose to make a doll that resembles their partner to make long distance relationships easier.

These aren’t called “luxury” dolls for no reason, so be prepared to spend a fair amount if you choose this type.

Mini Sex Dolls

If you’re excited about getting a sex doll but not quite prepared to spend over a thousand dollars, no worries. This is the category of doll for you.


A miniature sex doll will offer the same anatomical features and functions of larger dolls in a tinier, more affordable package. The only difference between regular sex dolls and mini sex dolls is size.

Miniature dolls range from a few feet long to just below regular size. Most of these products will come with a smaller body and limbs and a normal size head.

Their orifices will also be regular sized, while the doll itself is lighter and smaller. Obviously, this makes mini dolls easier to use and store.

Torso dolls

Torso dolls are the same as full sized dolls but only include the torso. Some options have the head, in addition to the torso, without limbs. Lower cost torso dolls don’t include a head.

Some guys will be put off by this, obviously. Others will be more concerned about function than appearance. The most obvious advantage of a torso doll is that it will cost less.

However, it will also be easier to maneuver and store. While a full-size sex doll may be difficult to hide for the sake of privacy, that won’t be as much of an issue here.

Plus, just because they’re smaller doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on any fun. Torso dolls can still include full butts, realistic breasts and alluring faces, in addition to pleasurable orifices to have fun with.

You may order a torso sex doll without limbs or with arms and thighs. If you’re on the fence about investing in a full-size sex doll, a torso doll could be the perfect place to start.

Mid-Range Dolls

Mid-range dolls are closer to luxury options and tend to be made with TPE, a realistic and affordable material. If you’re looking to buy a mid-range love doll, TPE is preferable over low-quality silicone.

Here’s the deal:

With a mid-range doll, you’ll have the same amount of excitement as you will with a luxury option, but clean-up will take more effort.

As mentioned, TPE is more porous than silicone. This means it can harbor bacteria more easily. Make sure you are careful when you clean your TPE doll and always ensure it’s completely dry before putting it away.

Storing a damp doll can lead to imperfections and damage over time.

Life-sized mid-range dolls usually come with a metal skeleton, movable joints, and flexibility. This is an obvious advantage when it comes to positioning and versatility of use.

Compared to luxury sex dolls, mid-range doll skeletons have slightly weaker, thinner joints. So, you can bend your doll into multiple positions during play time, but you might encounter stiffness in the joints after a while.

Exotic Dolls

For some guys, buying a sex doll means fulfilling a fantasy that they can’t achieve in real life, for various reasons.

Maybe you’ve always wanted an Asian girlfriend, but you live in area where there aren’t many Asian women. Or perhaps you’ve always been attracted to a particular skin tone but rarely see it in real life.

Whatever the case, you can buy yourself a sex doll with just about any ethnicity. Choose between Chinese, to Scandinavian, African, Latina and more.

Niche Dolls

Lastly, we have niche dolls to fulfill your specific fantasy. Are you attracted to pregnant women? Elves? What about fairies or shemales? All of these categories are available on Sex Doll Genie.

You can also find options with silver hair, freckles, and just about anything else you can imagine.
