Natural lubrication from a woman’s vaginal secretions is perfect for penetration. But when using sex toys, or more specifically sex dolls, you’ll need a good lubricant to enhance your experience. Sex toys can boost sexual functioning, pleasure, and overall satisfaction, but they can't lubricate themselves. This is where man-made lubricants come in.

There are various types of lubricants, each with its pros, cons, and suitable uses. These include silicone-based, water-based, oil-based, hybrid, and novelty lubricants (warming, cooling, tingling, etc.). 

If your toy is made from a hard material, like natural stone, ABS plastic, glass, or stainless steel, then the world of personal lubricants is your oyster.

Though I'm not sure about you but I wouldn't want a sex doll made of natural stone, ABS plastic, glass or stainless steel...

Most people like to use their best lubes with their favorite sex toys but not all lubes are suitable for sex toy use, and some of them definitely work better than others. Let's dive into the details to help you choose the right lubricant for your sex doll.

Key Takeaways

Which lubes you should and shouldn't use with your sex doll:

1) Natural physiological lubrication from a woman is suitable for vaginal penetration, but using your own secretions on a sex doll is not recommended due to potential hygiene and durability issues.

2) Water-based lubricants are the best option for sex dolls made of silicone and TPE, offering high efficiency, ease of cleaning, and environmental friendliness.

3) Silicone-based lubricants should never be used with silicone or TPE sex dolls, as they can cause irreversible damage to the doll's skin or material.

4) Oil-based lubricants are not suitable for sex dolls, as they can make the doll slippery, stain the surface, and be extremely difficult to clean. They should also not be used with any sex toys.

5) Hybrid lubricants can offer the benefits of both water-based and silicone-based lubes, but silicone-containing hybrids should be avoided with silicone and TPE sex toys.

Can I Use Natural Lubricants?

You can use natural lubricants like saliva on your silicone and TPE sex dolls. However, natural secretions don't last long and can promote bacteria and mold growth if your doll isn't cleaned properly afterwards. They also have limited quantity and may emit an unpleasant odor.

Of course, you can use the secretions from your own body (for example, saliva) to lubricate your silicone & TPE sex doll.

However, I do not suggest using your own secretions as your secretions don't last very long and could lead to increased bacteria and mold growth if your doll isn't cleaned properly afterwards.

Other possible drawbacks include a limited supply and possibly an unpleasant odour.

What About Water-Based Lubricants?

Absolutely! Water-based lubes are compatible with the widest range of sex toy materials, making them the best and safest option. They are often made from naturally moisturizing ingredients like Aloe Vera or Carrageenan and are less irritating.


  • High efficiency
  • Easy to clean
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Anti-allergenic
  • Non-sticky
  • Non-greasy
  • Non-staining


  • Not suitable for use in water (For example during a shower or bath)

Ideal For: Most sex toys, including those made of silicone and TPE, ensuring no stains or damage.

Can Silicone Based Lubricants Be Used With My Sex Doll?

No! Silicone lubes are smooth and long-lasting, making them great for sensitive skin and water play. However, silicone lubricant reacts with silicone or TPE sex dolls to produce a gloopy mixture that will cause irreversible and long term damage to the skin and/or orifices of your love doll and may even make use of your sex doll impossible. 


  • Long-lasting
  • Water-resistant
  • Great for latex, polyurethane, and polyisoprene condoms
  • hypoallergenic (recommended for sensitive skin)
  • Extra smooth
  • Non-absorbent into skin
  • Lasts longer than other lubes


  • Damages silicone and TPE sex toys
  • Can stain sheets and clothing

Ideal For: Natural rubber latex, polyurethane, and polyisoprene condoms but not for silicone or TPE toys.

It is important to emphasize that it is absolutely forbidden to use silicone lubricants on silicone and TPE sex dolls.


Are Oil Based Lubricants Suitable?

Oil-based lubricants are long-lasting and can double as massage oils. They’re great for anal sex but not for use with latex condoms or sex toys. Oil-based lubes can cause infections and are tough to clean, potentially staining your sex doll.


  • Long-lasting
  • Can be used as massage oils


  • Break down latex condoms
  • Difficult to clean
  • Not suitable for sex dolls
  • Can lead to infections

Ideal For: Avoid using oil-based lubricants with sex dolls and most sex toys.

It's important to note, I do not recommend oil based lubricants at all. Don't even try them. Stay away from oil based lubricants, period.

Can I Use A Hybrid Based Lubricant?

Hybrid lubes combine the best properties of water and silicone lubes. They offer longer-lasting lubrication with a silky feel. However, keep them away from silicone sex toys to avoid damage.


  • Longer lasting
  • Silky feel (often associated with silicone lubes)
  • the versatility of a water based lube


  • Can damage silicone sex toys

This being said, I recommend keeping hybrid lubes (especially ones containing silicone) away from your silicone sex dolls.

Final Thoughts

Using the right lubricant enhances the safety and pleasure of your sex doll experience. Non-porous, hard material toys can be used with any lube, but for your sex doll, a quality water-based lube is the best choice. They are lightweight, easy to clean, great for sensitive skin, and compatible with most sex toys.

When using sex toys, a water-based lubricant is your go-to for most situations. Silicone and TPE toys should never be used with silicone lubes to avoid damage.
