WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SILICONE AND TPE SILICONE?
Silicone and TPE are both high quality sex materials. Silicone is typically regarded as the more durable material and TPE as the most realistic. Here are the main attributes of each material.
A bit harder than TPE but also more durable, more expensive, easier to clean
->PREMIUM TPE SILICONE
TPE is softer to the touch. More realistic ‘jiggling’ of body parts (breasts, ass, etc). The material is more elastic which allows the dolls to be more flexible at their joints, good heat retention. Less expensive. Less durable than Silicone, more care is required to clean and care for it properly.

WHAT IS PREMIUM TPE SILICONE?
Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) is a mixture of polyvinyl chloride and silicone. This soft elastomer material mimics the experience of human skin. It's soft and stretchy, with a velvety texture that is caused by the talcs used to prevent the material sticking to the molds. If your Sex Doll made of TPE ever becomes unpleasantly tacky or sticky, just give it a light dusting of renewal powder with included brush to restore it's original texture. If the sex doll will be used by a female we recommend only dusting with renewal powder, as talcum. TPE is waterproof, hypoallergenic and phthalate free. TPE is also porous and can easily harbor bacteria. TPE cannot be effectively sterilized, so sharing of your sex doll without a condom is not safe.
HOW LONG WILL A SEX DOLL LAST?
A sex doll will last anywhere from 5 years to 10 years depending on usage and care. A sex doll that gets frequently used and moved will be more likely to suffer wear and tear. There are many things doll owners can do to preserve and maintain their sex doll. If damage does occur it is also quite easy to perform repairs on your sex doll.

WHAT DOES A SEX DOLL HOLE(S) LOOK LIKE?
Sex Doll's vaginas are quite realistic, both in look and feel (inside). Barrels are tight and textured for your pleasure. (A) Oral Depth 5.2in/13cm -- (B) Vaginal Depth 6.8in/17cm -- (C) Anal Depth 6.8in/17cm
REMOVABLE VAGINA VS BUILT-IN/FIXED VAGINA
The built-in or fixed vagina is exactly how it sounds. The vagina is built-in to the doll just like a real woman. The removable vagina is a sleeve or fleshlight-esque tube that you can insert and remove from the doll. The tube is held in place by the doll’s labia. Which is better? Most of our customers prefer the built-in vagina as it provided the most realistic experience, however the removable vagina is easier to clean and replace. If you value complete realism you’ll want to get the built-in vagina, if you want something that is easy to pop-out and clean after use you should consider the removable vagina.

HEATING YOUR SEX DOLL
As the look and feel of sex dolls has improved over the years, sex doll engineers have turned their eye from perfecting the outer appearance of sex dolls to other areas of realism. One of these areas is body heat. Although maybe overlooked by some, the difference in a heated sex doll experience and a room-temperature sex doll experience is significant. For doll owners looking to make their sex doll realistic, heating your doll up for use is one of the best ways you can achieve that.
A - INTERNAL HEATING SYSTEMS
Most sex doll manufacturers offer an internal heating system upgrade that allows you to easily heat the dolls body from the inside out. This method, although the most is expensive, will give you the best results for consistent heat throughout the dolls body.Heating systems from different doll brands tend to differ slightly, but they all work in essentially the same way. Wiring will be run through the doll's body and there will be a plug outlet somewhere on the doll's body. The doll will also come with a wire that will plug into the doll's body and the other end will run to the wall outlet. On this plug will sometimes be a screen and buttons where you can preset your desired temperature. Once you plug the doll in, electricity will heat the doll to the set temperature in about 20-30 mins.
For example, the internal heating system for WM Doll has wiring throughout the doll's torso and privates area. There is an out on the left side of the doll's torso about 6 inches under the armpit. There will be a wire that in plug into the doll and the other end into the wall. On the wire is a small control panel where you can set the temperature you want your doll heated to. Once set, the doll's torso, vagina, and anus will reach the temperature in about 30 mins and will be ready for use.

B - EXTERNAL HEATING DEVICES (HEATING ROD)
Most mainstream doll brands these days will include a small external heating device with each doll purchase. They typically will include it free of charge and without having to specifically request it.
The device will be a small heating wand with a USB plug that you can insert into the doll's vagina or anus to heat it before use. You can plug it into a usb-plug that you might have laying around from a phone charger or other small electronic devices. Once plugged in the device will heat up to about human body temperature. You can insert into your doll and have a heated experience in about 15-30 mins.

C - ALTERNATIVE HEATING SOLUTIONS
If you don't feel like shelling out the extra money for the internal heating system but you're looking for something more robust than the included external heating device, there are some other solutions that sex doll owners use to heat their doll. We've listed some of the more popular methods below.
1. Electric heating blanket - Electric heating blankets can be effective in heating up your sex doll's body. When used in conjunction with an internal heating device they can be almost as effective as internal heating systems. You can even look into heated clothing like heated vests, underwear, or gloves, to warm up certain areas of the body.
2. Warming lube - Warming lube is a type of lubricant that heats up as you use it. It is important to only use the water-based variety and can be purchased from most places they sell condoms. Not sure which warming lube is best? We've found this helpful warming lube guide to point you in the right direction.
3. Warm bath - Fill up a warm bath and let your sex doll soak for a period of time. The TPE material will hold the heat for a bit after you take her out.
4. Sleep with doll - Sleeping with your doll under a warm blanket will warm her up for when you wake up. The TPE material will absorb your body heat and the blanket will help keep her insulated.
