Sex dolls have gained popularity in recent years, with many people opting to purchase one for companionship or sexual purposes. However, buying a sex doll is not a decision that should be taken lightly. In this article, "5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Buying My First Sex Doll", I share my experience and offer some advice to potential buyers, stressing the importance of researching the seller and checking for legitimate reviews before making a purchase, considering the weight of the sex doll before buying, preparing for home photoshoots with outfits and accessories, and being familiar with cleaning and maintenance.

Key Takeaways

5 things I wish I knew before purchasing my first sex doll:

1) Research: Thoroughly research sellers and read legitimate reviews to avoid scams and fake sex dolls.

2) Consider Weight: Be mindful of the weight of the sex doll to ensure it is manageable and suits your physical capabilities.

3) Photoshoots: Prepare outfits and accessories for fun photoshoots with your sex doll.

4) Cleaning & Maintenance: Familiarize yourself with proper cleaning and maintenance to keep your sex doll in top shape.

5) Collecting: Owning one sex doll may lead to the desire to collect more, but remember to treat each doll with love and respect.

1. Research, Research More, Then Research Some More

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Just imagine, that doll you've been looking at for months, dreaming of daily, has just popped up on sale on a new unfamiliar website. The photos look great, they are the same photos you've seen on legitimate websites... So it must be the same doll... right? Only it's half the price... The deal is too good to pass up... Think again!

If you're considering buying a sex doll, it's essential to do your due diligence and research extensively before making a purchase. With so many disreputable sellers out there, it's easy to fall prey to a scam, so be cautious.

It's not uncommon for fake or knock-off sex dolls to be sold by unscrupulous dealers, or for them to take your money and not deliver a sex doll at all. One common trick is to use legitimate photos of sex dolls and then offer a cheap imitation instead. To avoid falling for these scams, it's crucial to check the legitimacy of the seller before making a purchase.

To do this, look for reviews of the seller on third-party websites such as Trustpilot or Yotpo, as they cannot be edited or manipulated by the seller. On-site reviews should be treated with caution, as they can be faked easily. You can also check The Doll Forum for reviews and to see if the vendor is a Verified Sex Doll Vendor.

While a knock-off sex doll may save you money upfront, it's likely to cost you more in the long run, as it won't last as long as a genuine sex doll and may not meet health and safety standards. With a reputable dealer, you'll get an after-sales warranty and a sex doll that will last for many years with proper care and maintenance. Don't risk your health and safety by purchasing a cheap replica sex doll from a black market vendor. Trust your gut and do your research to avoid being scammed.

2. Be Wary Of Weight, Some Sex Dolls Are Heavy!

When choosing a sex doll, it's important to consider its weight and ensure it's suitable for you. Not all sex dolls are created equal, and some can weigh as much as a full-grown human, which can be challenging to manage, especially if you're not quite strong.

If you're not physically capable of lifting and carrying a heavy sex doll, you may have trouble storing it, posing it for photographs, or even moving it around the room. Therefore, it's vital to consider the weight of the sex doll before making a purchase.

Lighter sex dolls, such as a SE 150cm Doll, can be a more manageable option. On the other hand, there are also smaller sex dolls and torso sex dolls available to suit different physical capabilities.

If you've already purchased a heavier sex doll, don't worry, with time you'll get better at handling her. Heavier sex dolls can be incredibly sexy and curvy, and the weight can add to the realism of the experience. But to avoid any unwanted surprises, it's best to be informed of the weight of the sex doll before committing to a purchase.

At SxDolled, we make it easy for you to browse our selection of sex dolls, so you can find the perfect one to suit your needs and capabilities. Additionally, all sex dolls have detailed measurements. So, whether you're a gym shark or not, we have a sex doll that's just right for you. On the other hand, if your interested in the best sex doll torsos, check out this article by BedBible.

3. Photoshoots With Your Sex Doll Is Awesome… Be Prepared With A Few Outfits & Accessories

If you're anything like me, you'll find that taking photos of your sex doll is a lot of fun. The sex dolls are so realistic that it's hard not to want to capture their beauty on camera. So, be prepared to have a mini photoshoot at home. You don't need to be a professional photographer, just have some fun with it. But, if you want to take your sex doll photos to the next level, make sure to have some outfits and accessories on hand.

Trust me, you don't want to be caught off guard like I was. You don't need a huge wardrobe, just a few key pieces like lingerie, a bikini, or a cute dress. Accessories like jewelry, hats, and sunglasses can also add a fun touch to your photos. And if you want to style your sex doll's hair, make sure to have some hair clips or bands on hand.

By being prepared with outfits and accessories, you'll be able to have a blast taking photos of your sex doll. So, get creative and have some fun!

4. Cleaning & Maintenance Knowledge Is Essential

Once you've decided to invest in a sex doll, you've also committed to taking care of it. Regular cleaning and maintenance are crucial to keep your sex doll in tip-top shape. It's important to become familiar with how to clean your sex doll and to have a cleaning regimen planned out. Sex dolls usually come with an irrigator, and it's recommended to use water mixed with a gentle, diluted soap solution. Proper drying after cleaning is also key to extending the life of your sex doll.

To help you with cleaning and maintenance, our FAQ and article "how to clean, maintain, and repair every inch of your sex doll" are excellent resources.

It's also important to be prepared for other maintenance tasks such as gluing on nails and eyelashes, popping eyes back into their sockets, and fixing any tears in your sex doll's "skin". If your sex doll is made from TPE, it can become stained. That's why it's a good idea to order some Emergency TPE Glue and Stain Remover ahead of time. Being proactive with cleaning and maintenance will ensure that you and your sex doll have a long and happy relationship.

5. It's Hard to Stop at One Sex Doll

It's a common misconception that your first sex doll will be your last. Once you've had a taste of the lifelike pleasure and companionship they offer, it's easy to see why people become collectors. As you explore your sex doll's personality and engage with other sex doll owners on forums, you may start to consider adding to your collection.

With new technology and advancements constantly emerging, there's always something bigger and better on the horizon. And as you become more immersed in the sex doll community, you'll likely find yourself thinking "What if..." and "Oh, she looks nice..."

But it's important to remember that your sex dolls are more than just objects. They're companions, and they deserve to be treated with love and respect. So if you do decide to expand your collection, make sure to take the time to get to know each new addition and give them the attention they deserve.

And don't forget to reassure your first sex doll that you still love them just as much as when you first got them - after all, it's not cheating, it's just sharing the love!
