TPE is an abbreviation commonly used for “thermoplastic elastomer,” also known as thermoplastic rubber. This rubber variant differs from other rubbers because it’s made using a mix of polymers that, when it comes to love dolls, gives you a more realistic-to-the-touch sex doll.
The dolls you buy from reputable vendors like dollwives.com make use of high-quality TPE. (Some use more-expensive silicone to make their dolls instead; that’s a good second-choice.) This combination of plastic and rubber in TPE gives a doll more realistic-feeling skin, softer breasts, and more pleasurable genitals.
TPE is also more durable and doesn’t tear as easily. That certainly beats trying to use a hard plastic mannequin with fleshlights attached to its top and bottom ends!
The Benefits of Going the TPE Route for Sex Dolls
- Elastic and Extendable: One favorable property of TPE is the fact that you can stretch it up to 5.5 times of its length. Just imagine the pleasure potential of this material. It creates sex dolls with amazing softness and suppleness that isn’t fragile and breakable, even when you get particularly hot and sweaty with it.
- A Two-Ingredient Blend: In order for TPE to simulate or achieve the girlish softness or smooth suppleness of human skin without being organic or as fragile as the real deal, it blends an elastomer and thermoplastic together to form the best of both worlds—skin softness and plastic strength mixed with the elasticity of rubber.
- Popular Material: TPE has enjoyed popularity for many other uses, due to its elastic properties that make it half-plastic and half-rubber. You’ll find it in many everyday items that are manufactured in asymmetrical shapes.
- Cost-Effectiveness without Sacrificing Quality: Another reason to go for TPE sex dolls? It uses materials that respond well to injection molding and mass production. Companies can mass produce high-quality sex dolls that maximize efficiency and minimize cost. A less-expensive TPE doll can cost between $800 and $2,000, yet has qualities comparable to $10,000 silicone dolls.
TPE’s nature allows for the manufacturing of natural-looking sex doll limbs, faces, features, bodily contours, torsos, and even the genitals that make them quality sex toys. No longer do sex doll devotees have to settle for hard plastic mannequins with fleshlight attachments or easy-to-tear vinyl or rubber dolls, nor do they have to pay exorbitant prices for silicone models. TPE sex dolls are durable, realistic, provide enormous pleasure – and may be with you longer than a human girlfriend would.
