Sex dolls have become increasingly popular over the years, and with that comes questions about use, storage, proper maintenance, and care. In this guide, we will cover everything you need to know about using, cleaning, maintaining, and storing your sex doll. We will answer some of your most common questions, such as whether sex dolls are safe and what kind of clothes are suitable for dressing your sex doll in.


Proper cleaning is crucial to ensure your sex doll stays in good condition. We will go over the steps you should take to clean your doll and how often you should perform maintenance. We will also touch on a few other important factors to keep in mind when storing your sex doll.


Whether you are a first-time sex doll owner or have had one for a while, this guide will provide you with valuable information on how to properly care for and maintain your sex doll.


1) How Do I Clean My Sex Doll?

Among the many queries that sex doll enthusiasts may have, the topic of cleaning sex dolls is certainly one of the most crucial. To ensure that your sex doll remains in top-notch condition, it is recommended to have regular cleaning routines. I recommend every time you use your sex doll's mouth, anus, or vagina, you should clean your doll, especially the orifices you've used. The initial step in this process involves delicately wiping your sex doll's skin with a sponge or towel soaked in warm water. In cases where dirt or stains have accumulated on the surface, it is recommended to use soapy water or a neutral cleaner, such as body wash, for effective cleaning. Once the surface is completely dry, applying baby powder can help to maintain your sex doll's cleanliness. It's essential to note that the frequency of maintenance may vary depending on your storage environment and the condition of your sex doll. We recommend cleaning your sex doll at least once a month to guarantee optimal cleanliness, otherwise much more often if you regularly engage in sexual activity with your sex doll.

Additionally, exposure to sunlight for extended periods should be avoided as this could potentially accelerate the aging process of your sex doll’s TPE and/or silicone materials, consequently reducing her lifespan.

Caution: never fully submerge your doll's head into water as this will most likely cause permanent external and internal damage.

2) Can My Sex Doll Support Herself In Doggy Style Position?

I think it's fair to say that neither Dutch wives nor blow up sex doll ever looked, felt, or moved anything like a real woman. Today's sex dolls are versatile and can be posed in various positions, including the popular and timeless doggy style position. However, it's essential to take precautions to prevent potential injuries or lacerations, particularly when using your sex doll on hard surfaces like the ground. Instead, we advise using your sex doll on a soft bed, with pillows underneath your sex doll's elbows and knees to reduce the likelihood of elbow and knee injuries.

Furthermore, to ensure that your sex doll can maintain the doggy style pose, additional support may be required to distribute her weight correctly. We recommend placing a pillow or a blanket placed under your sex doll’s torso to support your sex doll's upper body, which will help to maintain the pose during use. Lastly, the total weight of your doll should be considered, some sex dolls can weight up to 60kgs! So, it is particularly necessary to pose your sex doll properly if she is on the heavier side to evenly distribute her weight as much as possible. On a side note, hollow breasts can help to reduce the overall weight of your doll, particularly if you are considering a doll with extra large breasts. With these measures in place, your sex doll can indeed support herself and achieve the doggy style pose with ease.

3) How Do I Maintain My Sex Doll’s Wigs?

Wigs require proper maintenance to ensure that they stay in good condition and last for as long as possible. The maintenance process is relatively straightforward, and it involves a few steps.

Firstly, soak the wig in soapy warm water for several minutes to remove any dirt or debris.

Next, remove the wig from the soapy water and rinse it thoroughly with clean water.

After rinsing, gently squeeze the wig to remove any excess water. It's crucial to avoid any rough handling, as this could damage the wig's fibers.

Brush the wig starting from the tips of the hair and slowly work your way up to the roots of the wig.

Detangle any remaining knots in the wig gently with your fingers, ensuring that the brushing runs through the wig smoothly.

Once the wig is detangled, hang it out to dry in a cool, shady, and dry place, away from direct sunlight.

After a few minutes, the wig should be dry enough to remove from the hanger.

Finally, oil the wig (with wig oil) according to your preference. It is now ready for use again. By following these simple maintenance steps, you can keep your wigs in excellent condition and enjoy them on your sex dolls for years to come.

More info on this in our article "how to care for your sex dolls wigs". 

4) Can I Apply Makeup On My Sex Doll?

Another common query that arises among sex doll enthusiasts is whether it is possible to apply makeup on their sex dolls. The answer is yes, most real sex dolls come with makeup already applied, although it may fade over time. However, you can touch up your sex doll's makeup as you’d wish, giving her a fresh and rejuvenated appearance. Whether you're looking to experiment with different makeup styles or want to touch up her existing makeup, applying makeup to your sex doll can be an exciting and creative experience. With careful attention to detail and the right makeup tools, you can achieve stunning results that enhance your sex doll's natural beauty. So, feel free to explore the possibilities and experiment with makeup application on your sex doll to give her a whole new look. I recommended watching and following tutorials to learn about makeup and application.

5) Are Sex Dolls Safe?

Sex dolls have become increasingly popular over the years, and with that comes questions about their safety. The safety of a sex doll depends largely on the material used to produce the sex doll. At SxDolled, safety is a top priority, and all real sex dolls are designed safe for use by highly accredited and trusted manufacturers. As such, you can rest assured that your safety concerns are considered and accounted for, and you can enjoy your sex doll without worrying about any safety issues. The sex dolls we stock are made only from high-quality materials that are designed to be safe and durable. Whether you're looking for a realistic experience or simply want to enjoy the company of a sex doll, you can do so with confidence knowing that SxDolled has your safety in mind.

6) What Is The Range Of My Sex Doll’s Joints?

Love dolls have come a long way in terms of design and functionality. One of the key features of modern love dolls is their range of motion, which allows them to move in almost all the ways that real people do. At SxDolled, we pride ourselves on the high-quality design of our love dolls, which have a range of motion of about 180 degrees or more in most cases. This range of motion allows for a broad range of poses and movements, making your love doll feel more realistic and lifelike. Keep in mind that the range of motion varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and also depends on skeleton types such as the standard or upgraded (EVO) skeletons.

Also, it’s important to note, when your love doll is new, her joints may be a little stiff, which is perfectly normal and will become less noticeable over time with use. With careful handling and proper care, you can enjoy the full range of motion of your love doll's joints and appreciate her lifelike movements and realism.

7) What’s The Difference Between A Removable and Built-In/Fixed Vagina?

When it comes to love dolls, one of the key features that differentiate them is the type of vagina they have. There are two main options: removable and fixed. A built in vagina or fixed vagina is an integral part of your love doll and is designed to provide the most authentic experience. This type of vagina is built into your love doll and feels more realistic as it is a part of the overall structure of your love doll's body. On the other hand, a removable vagina is a sleeve or skin-like tube that can be inserted or removed from your love doll for easy cleaning and replacement. The tube is held in place by the labia of your love doll, and it can be swapped out for different textures or designs. Both options have their pros and cons, and the choice ultimately depends on your preferences and needs. If you want a more authentic experience, a fixed vagina may be the best choice for you. However, if you prefer more flexibility and easy maintenance, a removable vagina may be a better fit. Whatever option you choose, SxDolled offers a wide variety of love dolls with different vagina types to suit your needs.

Learn of the pros and cons of both vagina types from our article "pros and cons of fixed and removable sex doll vaginas".

8) Is It Alright To Engage in Sexual Activity With My Sex Doll Without Lubricant?

Using lubricant is essential for maximizing your sexual pleasure and ensuring the longevity of your sex doll. I recommend always using plenty of water based lubricant when engaging in sexual activity with your sex doll. This is because, without lubricant, there can be a tremendous amount of friction between your love doll's vagina and your penis as you penetrate her. This can cause significant wear and tear on your love doll's delicate skin, potentially leading to damage or tearing of her and your own private parts. By using a water based lube, you can avoid this issue and ensure that your love doll stays in excellent condition. Water based lubricants are safe to use with all types of love dolls and materials, and they are easy to clean after use. So, whether you're using your love doll for solo play or with a partner, always make sure to use plenty of water based lubricant to enhance your experience and protect your love doll.

9) What Kind Of Clothes Are Suitable For My Sex Doll?

When it comes to dressing your sex doll, it's important to choose clothes that are soft and gentle on her delicate skin. Hard materials and rough textures can leave marks or even damage the delicate surface of your sex doll. Instead, opt for lightweight, soft fabrics that will drape comfortably over your sex doll's body without causing any friction or irritation.

At SxDolled, we provide detailed measurements for the bust, waist, and hips of our sex dolls to help you find the perfect fitting clothing for your sex doll. You can choose from a wide range of regular ladies' dresses and outfits, or you can customize your sex doll's wardrobe with unique pieces that reflect your personal style.

Keep in mind that darker colours may transfer onto your sex doll's skin, so it's best to stick with lighter shades or wash any new clothes before dressing your sex doll in them. With a little care and attention, you can create a wardrobe that not only looks great but also helps keep your sex doll looking and feeling her best for years to come.

On a side note, the standing feet option offered by most sex doll manufacturers are perfect for modelling your sex dolls in different outfits and allowing you to step back to see how they look.

10) How Do I Store My Sex Doll?

Storing your sex doll correctly is crucial to ensuring her longevity and maintaining her quality. Here are some tips and tricks to help you store your sex doll safely and effectively:

1) Store your sex doll vertically: Storing your sex doll vertically is the best way to keep her in good condition. This helps prevent any wrinkles or deformities that may occur from long periods of lying down.
2) Hang your sex doll: If possible, hanging your sex doll is the best way to store her. This will help prevent any damage that may occur from your sex doll being in contact with any surfaces or objects.
3) Keep your sex doll in the shade: Direct sunlight can damage your sex doll's material over time, so it's best to store her in a cool, dry, and shaded area.
4) Use the original box for storage: If you kept the original box that your sex doll came in, it's a good idea to store her in there. This will help protect your sex doll from any dust or dirt that may accumulate over time.
5) Consider a storage bag: If you don't have the original box, a storage bag is a good alternative. Make sure to choose a bag that is breathable to prevent any moisture buildup.

Remember to take care of your sex doll during storage, just like you would during regular use. Follow these tips and your sex doll will stay in great condition for years to come.

11) What Should I Avoid When Storing My Sex Doll?

A) Dark fabrics – When storing your sex doll, avoid using dark fabrics or materials that may transfer dye or colour onto your sex doll's skin. This means taking any dark coloured clothing off of your sex doll before storing her away and hanging her up in a way so that she is not making contact with anything, especially dark clothing.

B) Tight clothing – Make sure to remove any tight or restrictive clothing from your sex doll before storing her away. Elastic straps and other tight materials can leave permanent marks or indentations on your sex doll's skin if left on during storage.

C) Sunlight – Direct sunlight can cause your sex doll's skin and features to discolor and age unevenly, so it's important to avoid exposing your sex doll to the sun for extended periods.

D) Extreme temperatures – Extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, can cause damage to your sex doll's material and structure. Avoid storing your sex doll in locations that are subject to extreme heat or cold.

E) Pressure points – Avoid placing anything on your sex doll's skin for an extended period of time, as it can cause permanent indentation. It's best to suspend your sex doll in the air or place her on a soft surface during storage. Additionally, do not keep your sex doll in a crunched or fully stretched position for too long, as this can cause deformation and reduce your sex doll's lifespan. Slight bends at the joints are your best bet.

12) How Do I Remove Wrinkles From My Sex Doll?

Wrinkles can occur on the surface of your sex doll due to various factors such as storage, positioning, or usage. However, there are simple methods to remove these wrinkles and keep your sex doll looking her best.

Dealing with wrinkles:
To remove wrinkles, place a hot towel with a temperature of less than 60 degrees on the affected area for about 10 minutes. Remove the towel and allow to cool to see if the wrinkles have disappeared. Repeat this process a number of times if needed. It's important to maintain your sex doll in a neutral position such as she was out of the factory to reduce force on all her joints and material. Over time, the wrinkles and creases will begin to reduce and disappear, restoring your sex doll's original smooth appearance.

Preventing wrinkles:
Preventing wrinkles is much easier than removing them. It is recommended that you store your sex doll in a hanging or suspended position or use a soft mattress to cushion her weight and avoid any excessive force applying to any one area. When dressing your sex doll, make sure that the clothes fit well, avoid tight-fitting outfits, or leaving your sex doll in one position for too long. These are the most significant measures to prevent the formation of wrinkles and ensure that your sex doll remains beautiful and lifelike for years to come.

13) How Do I Repair Minor Damage To My Sex Doll?

If your love doll gets damaged, she can be repaired with TPE glue (TPE sex dolls). Here are the steps to repair your love doll:

1) Identify the damage: Look for scratches, cuts, or punctures in your love doll's TPE skin.
2) Clean the damaged area: Use a makeup remover to clean the damaged area. Make sure the area is dry before proceeding to the next step.
3) Apply the glue: Apply a small amount of TPE glue to the damaged area. Spread the glue evenly with a toothpick or a small brush. Make sure not to apply too much glue as it can leave a noticeable mark.
4) Allow the glue to cure: The curing time for TPE glue is approximately 30 minutes. During this time, avoid touching the glued area or applying any pressure to it.
5) Check the repair: After the glue has cured, check the repair to make sure it is holding up well. If you notice any problems, reapply the glue and repeat the process.

Repairing your love doll is a simple process that can be done with TPE glue. By following these steps, you can easily repair any damage to your love doll's TPE skin and keep her looking as good as new.

14) How Long Do Sex Dolls Last?

I understand that sex dolls can be a significant investment, and knowing how long they last can help you make an informed decision. However, the lifespan of real sex dolls depends on many factors, including usage, maintenance, and storage.

Factors affecting the lifespan of sex dolls
The lifespan of sex dolls can vary widely depending on the way they are used and cared for. Here are some of the factors that can affect the lifespan of your sex doll:

1) Frequency of use: Frequent use can lead to wear and tear, which may reduce the lifespan of your sex doll.
2) Care and maintenance: Proper care and maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your sex doll. This includes cleaning, drying, and storing your doll correctly.
3) Storage conditions: The way you store your sex doll can also affect her lifespan. Keeping her suspended in a cool, dry place away from sunlight can help prevent damage.
4) Quality of materials: The quality of materials used to manufacture your sex doll can also affect her lifespan. High-quality materials tend to be more durable and long-lasting.
5) Type of usage: The way you use your sex doll can also affect her lifespan. More intense usage can more easily lead to wear and tear over time.

So, how long can sex dolls last?
On average, sex dolls can last anywhere between three to five years. However, this lifespan can vary based on the factors mentioned above. Regular maintenance and proper storage can help extend the lifespan of your sex doll. Some sex doll owners report that their real sex dolls have lasted for upwards of 10 years with proper care.

To ensure that your sex doll lasts as long as possible, it's essential to take good care of her. Proper care and maintenance, including regular cleaning and storage, can help extend the lifespan of your sex doll. With proper maintenance, your sex doll can provide years of pleasure and enjoyment.

15) How Do I Dispose Of My Sex Doll?

It's important to properly dispose of a sex doll when she's no longer needed or desired. One option is to consider donating her to a sex doll recycling program or sex toy recycling program, if available in your area. This will ensure that your sex doll is properly disposed of and maybe even reused for another purpose.

Alternatively, if donation is not an option, your sex doll can be disassembled, and her parts can be recycled or thrown away in separate trash bags. It's important to follow local laws and regulations for disposal and to disinfect your sex doll before handling and disposal to prevent the spread of germs or bacteria.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, owning a sex doll requires proper care and maintenance to ensure her longevity and safety during use. Regular cleaning, maintenance, and storage practices can prevent damage and wear and tear and extend your sex doll's lifespan for years. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning and maintenance, such as using the right cleaning agents and lubricants, storing your sex doll properly, and avoiding exposure to extreme temperatures and sunlight.


Additionally, using caution during use and avoiding putting your sex doll in stressful positions can prevent injuries or damage. With proper care and maintenance, your sex doll can last on average between three to five years, providing you with years of enjoyment and companionship. Then, when it's time to part ways with your sex doll, proper disposal, and disinfection practices are essential. Overall, responsible ownership and proper care can ensure you a safe and enjoyable experience with your sex doll.
