Choosing A Lubricant For Your Sex Doll | SxDolled

Choosing A Lubricant For Your Sex Doll

Aside from natural physiological lubricants such as the liquid a woman produces within her vagina, there exist a variety of artificial lubricants available on the market. These synthetic lubricants typically have a base made of either silicone, water, or oil and were initially intended for use on human skin, more specifically as vaginal lubricants. That being said, not all of them are suitable for use with your love doll. This begs the question, which types of lubricants are appropriate for use with your realistic sex doll and are there any associated risks with any of these types of lubricants and them causing harm to your sex doll’s delicate skin?


How to pick the right lubricant for your sex doll:

1) Natural lubricants, such as saliva, can be used with your sex doll, but they have limitations and potential drawbacks, like frequent reapplication and the risk of bacterial growth.
2) Water-based lubricants are the top recommended option for sex dolls. They reduce friction effectively, are easy to clean, environmentally friendly, non-sticky, and suitable for sensitive skin.
3) Silicone-based lubricants should be avoided at all costs for sex dolls, as they can cause irreversible damage to the doll's material and orifices.
4) Oil-based lubricants are not recommended for sex dolls due to their potential for creating an oily surface and being difficult to clean. Water-based lubes are the best choice.
5) Avoid using coconut oil, petroleum jelly, sweet almond oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, or any other oil-based products with your sex doll, as they share the same issues as oil-based lubes.


Is It Safe To Use Natural Lubricants With Your Realistic Sex Doll? 

The answer is yes, you can use secretions from your own body, such as saliva, to lubricate your love doll. However, there are a few drawbacks to using natural lubrication such as your saliva.
Firstly, the quantity of natural lubricant is limited, and you will need to reapply it much more frequently than you would with a synthetic lubricant. Additionally, natural lube may emit an unpleasant odour, which can be a turnoff for some doll owners. Furthermore, natural lubricants can invite bacteria to grow in your doll. Given these potential issues, using natural lubricants is not a viable option for those who are planning on skipping out on a synthetic lubricant and are trying to go for a more organic approach to sex play with their love doll.

How About Water Based Lubricants?

When it comes to choosing a lubricant for your silicone or TPE sex doll, water based lube options are the top choice for several reasons.
Firstly, they offer high efficiency in reducing friction, which can enhance your overall experience during playtime. Additionally, water based lubricants are easy to clean and environmentally friendly, making them a popular choice for those looking for a safe and sustainable option. They also have a non-sticky, non-greasy texture that feels great on your skin and is non-staining. Water based lubricant is also amazing if you've got sensitive skin, since pure water is the biggest component of water based lubes, these types of lubes are often very gentle and unreactive with skin.
However, one downside to water based lube is that it is not suitable for use in water (for example, in the shower), therefore water based lubes are not viable during a shower or bath. Despite this limitation, water-based lubricants remain a highly recommended option for use with your love doll.

Silicone lubricants are great for sex with a human partner. Since silicone lubricants don't dry out as quickly as water based lubes, they are a great option for anal sex. But forget using them with your sex doll!

What About Silicone Based Lubricants?

When it comes to lubricating your silicone or TPE sex doll, it's important to avoid using silicone based lubes at all costs. While silicone based lubes are known for their excellent lubricating and cleaning properties, where some consider silicone based lube as the silk sheets of sexual lubricant. Whereas using them on your love doll can cause irreversible damage to your sex doll's material. This is because silicone lube can react with the silicone or TPE material used to create your love doll, resulting in a gloopy mixture that can can permanently damage your doll's orifices and render them unusable in the long run. Silicone based lube also doesn't wash away with water alone, making it difficult to clean. This is because silicone lubes don't contain any water. 
Therefore, it's recommended that you avoid using silicone lube with your love doll at all costs and opt for a safer, more compatible lubricants instead.

What About Oil Based Lubricants?

If you're wondering whether an oil based lubricant is a suitable option for your silicone or TPE sex doll, the answer is no. While oil based lubes can provide great lubrication, they are not recommended for use with your sex doll for a few reasons.
Firstly, oil based lubes can make the surface of your doll's skin extremely oily and slippery, which can detract from your overall experience during playtime. Additionally, oil based lube is notoriously difficult to clean, which can be extremely frustrating when you're trying to maintain the cleanliness and longevity of your love doll. To avoid these issues, it's best to stick with a water based lube that is easy to clean and won't damage the material of your sex doll. Ultimately, the most reliable choice for lubrication with your sex doll is a high-quality water based lube.

On a somewhat related note, oil based lubes are not compatible with latex condoms as they break down the material. This could result in a bigger mess than if you'd just gone without a condom.
On a different note, you may read online that you can use coconut oil as lubricant. Coconut oil, as you may have guessed from it's name, is largely like oil based lubricants. Therefore, I do not recommend using coconut oil with your sex doll for all the same reasons not to use oil based lubes with your sex doll. The same goes for petroleum jelly, sweet almond oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, or any other oil based products!

Final Thoughts

To conclude, we recommended that you ONLY use water based lubes with your sex doll and avoid silicone and oil based lubricants at all costs. There are also novelty lubes, flavored lubes and hybrid lubes in the market that we didn't get into in this article, but our recommendation still stands that the one and only "right lube" you should use are water based lubes.
