What’s the difference between a TPE Sex Doll, a Silicone Sex Doll and a Masturbator? This is a question we get often, as we have all three types of sex toys on our site. They are absolutely different things, and while we see some cross over in terms of features, it’s important to know the difference before shopping for a sex a doll.

The biggest difference you’ll notice is price – Silicone sex dolls can come in between $2500 and $4000. TPE sex dolls will run from $600 – $1500, and masturbators will be much cheaper. They cost anywhere from $25 – $600. Those are very rough estimates, bu they will give you a quick benchmark for determining what is what on our site.

What are Masturbators?

Masturbators are large men’s sex toys, often made of TPE variants like FantaFlesh, Cyberskin and SexFlesh. They usually life-like models of various body parts. They are less expensive than larger Sex Dolls, but will get you off just as fabulously. Because they don’t have the same level of “personality” that a luxury sex doll has, we recommend them for married people and couples.

Masturbators are generally male sex toys – although the transsexual versions sell VERY well – molded after different parts of the female or male body.

Masturbators can be life-like, but they can also have a more ‘artistic’ look. They are humans paired down to their sexiest parts. They come in all shapes and sizes, from smaller Fleshlights to full-blown female torsos complete with vaginal and anal holes as well as amazingly shaped breasts.

These are meant to do get you off without any of the fancy custom sculpting and pose-able bodies of the sex dolls that can cost up to 10x as much. And they get you off well.


What are TPE Sex Dolls?

TPE Sex Dolls are what you see most of at our site. These are hyper realistic sex dolls made of a futuristic compound called TPE, that look like amazingly beautiful women and feel incredibly realistic.

TPE sex dolls are mid-range sex dolls. They are more expensive than masturbators but cheaper than luxury silicone sex dolls. A good TPE sex doll will cost you from $500 for a solid mini sex doll to upwards of $2000 for a life-size doll.

TPE stands for Thermo Plastic Elastomer. It’s a blend of different silicone and plastic compounds that creates a soft spongy material that can be sculpted and stretched. TPE can stretch up to 5.5 times its original size and still retain it’s shape. This is what makes it especially good for sex dolls.

Most TPE dolls come with an interior skeleton that has metal joints. This lets you pose the doll in any number of positions. Because TPE is so flexible and malleable, when you put the doll in a new pose, the skin will just retake it’s original shape. You won’t get any sagging skin in the doll.

You can find a TON of TPE sex dolls on our site. There’s a number places to purchase them, we’re recommending Amazon, SiliconWives.com and SexyRealSexDolls.com. All are solid shops. SiliconWives.com is out of NYC and SexyRealSexDolls.com is a Euro outfit.

In addition to sex dolls, you’ll find that many masturbators are made of TPE derivitaves like SexFlesh, Cyberskin and Pipedream Products. We have a website devoted to these types of toys – SexFleshToys.com. Here you can find out about some amazing ones.


What are Silicone Sex Dolls?

Silicone sex dolls are the most luxurious, and most expensive sex toys in the world. With the rise of A.I. silicone sex doll that is starting to change, but for now they are the top sex toy made on planet earth.

We have SOME silicone sex dolls on our site, but the best place to look is RealDolls.com and you can see the true magnificence that are top-of-the-line real sex dolls. There are killer sex toys.

Silicone sex dolls are made of high-quality medical grade Silicone. Not only are they hypo-allergenic and pthalate free like TPE sex dolls, but they are also non-porous, meaning they don’t have any cracks or crevices. Non-porous sex toys are much less likely to get bacteria on them.

We’re seeing lot’s of high quality vibrators and dildos come out that are made of silicone for this reason. You can find those at our store – SexDollPlanet.com where we sell only the best sex toys – hand-picked. While you should always wash your toys after each use, this ensure they will last a long time, and with proper care, a silicone sex doll WILL last a long time.

Silicone also warms up quickly and retains heat. This means Silicone sex dolls get warm quickly and stay warm while you use it. They feel incredibly realistic and when they get warmed up, even more so.


What is the best type of Luxury Sex Toy?

Honestly, we think it comes down to price and what you want to pay. They all feel amazing, they are all relatively similar in feel when you lube them up. But TPE and Silicone sex dolls give you a MUCH more realistic experience. These days they look unbelievably gorgeous, which becomes obvious when you check out the pictures on our site.

Our biggest recommendation is to do your research, buying one of these toys is an investment. Think about what you’re looking for and then do research, and we recommend contacting the seller before you order and seeing what customization options are available.


Many people are seeking new ways to explore and satisfy their sexual needs, some look on magazines and others browse on websites to see what they need to do or buy.  Sex toys have become a huge hit and more and more varieties are being created all the time.
