Is A Sex Doll For Me?

Is A Sex Doll For Me?

To some, sex dolls conjure the image of a middle-aged man who is lonely or people who are socially awkward. Some think of sex dolls as high-end masturbatory aids while others use them as surrogate partners for a variety of reasons. Historically, sex dolls have been largely associated with a somewhat negative undertone. However, research has shown that this is not always the case and the benefits of sex doll ownership outweigh the negatives. Let’s find out.

The profile of sex doll owners

Firstly, let’s discover if there are any major differences between the everyday joe and someone who owns a sex doll. Will having a sex doll affect our psyche negatively and thus bring harm to our well-being in the long run? It turns out that there aren’t. Contrary to widely held social attitudes, a research paper, the Journal of Sex Research by Craig Harper et al, found no substantive differences in sexual objectification (of women) between the two groups:

| “An analysis of the data showed that there were very few differences between men who own sex doll.” - Psychology Today

Owning a sex doll is more than just pure sexual gratification

“But many lonely hearts want more than just sexual satisfaction. EXDOLL marketing director Wu says the company was surprised to discover that only a small proportion of customers used the dolls only for sex — the vast majority of users find that the dolls also provide a sense of companionship that they can’t get by talking with other humans. “To their owners, each doll has her own personality and identity,” Wu adds.” -

| "There is no performance anxiety and you can do things 100% your way and at your pace."

From industry observations, while traditionally customers used to purchase sex dolls for sexual gratification alone, it appears that today’s customer segments span more than just lonely, middle-aged men who are unable to date for a variety of reasons. Driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of younger men in their twenties and thirties turned to sex dolls as doll hobbyists to help ease lockdown blues. Peeks into online doll forums have shown a rapidly growing popularity of both men and women around the globe posting photos of their silicone companions ranging from romantic bedroom shots, candle-lit dates and gorgeous photoshoots.

Married couples are getting on the sex doll bandwagon

While traditionally sex dolls are predominantly owned by males, the trend is definitely changing as more men and women as well as couples are becoming more open in satisfying their sexual needs in this day and age.

| “While it's easy to scoff, the idea that a doll could provide company in the absence of other people is not at all outlandish. As Dr Kate Devlin noted in her recent book Turned On: Science, Sex, and Robots, sex dolls tend to be associated with single men. But they are also frequently purchased by couples, people with disabilities, and parents whose adult children are socially excluded.” - Forbes
