Inflatable sex dolls are making a big comeback in the world of male sex toys. While they are not a new invention, sex toy manufacturers are beginning to upscale their products in order to gain an edge on their competitors and appeal to a broader demographic of men. This is largely due to the fact that men are becoming increasingly more open and less stigmatised by the idea of purchasing the occasional sex toy. Sex toy manufacturers are using these social trends to their advantage by utilising more modern and advanced technologies in order to create a wider range of inflatable sex dolls. This can only benefit potential customers because there are now better choices to be made if you know what you're looking for.

Which One Will Suit Your Needs?

This is the same dilemma I encountered when I purchased my first inflatable sex doll. One of my biggest weaknesses is making a decision when I have so many options to choose from. First off, let's examine why purchasing an inflatable sex doll is the right choice. The three main factors that I always consider when purchasing any sex toy is design, price and convenience. Inflatable sex toys are unique in the sense that they are designed to imitate a life-sized person in both appearance (real or fictional) and mass (i.e. height). Unlike many other male sex toys, inflatable sex dolls genuinely feel different and can add something new to your sexual routine. Inflatable sex dolls are not only aesthetically pleasing but they are in essence a complete package. This includes the capability of performing oral, anal or vaginal penetration on most dolls; not forgetting breasts, hands and feet. The ability to perform hands-free is another added bonus that is often overlooked. These design elements make inflatable sex dolls an exciting prospect for new users.

Cost and Make.

Unfortunately, not all inflatable sex dolls are made equal. Price is also an important aspect to consider when making your selection. A brief look at Randy Fox's range of inflatable/blow up sex dolls demonstrates just how much choice you have. Whether your budget is small or large, there is a doll for you. Generally speaking, dolls priced under $50 are low-end while those priced over $100 are considered high-end products (with mid-end falling between these price ranges). What's the difference you may ask? Simply put, quality varies based on the price you pay. Lower-end dolls are manufactured with minimal detail and thus appear less life-like. This may be bothersome for those who enjoy the fantasy of a doll with a close male or female resemblance. They also tend to last for a shorter time before leaks begin to occur along the seams leading to eventual deflation. As price increases so does the quality of materials used. Higher-end dolls tend to have thicker vinyl which increases product longevity and more consideration is given to human likeness. Some features include 3D rotocasting (face, hands and feet), greater flexibility for different positions, removable vagina/anus sleeves, and extras such as a vibrators and inflation pumps. My advice would be to consider your budget and choose a product that comes from a quality sex toy manufacturer. Nanma and Pipedream Extreme are trusted brands which might be worth a look.

Cleaning and Storage Tips.

Another one of the initial concerns I had was how convenient an inflatable sex doll would be to use, clean and store. Fortunately, inflatable sex dolls tick all the boxes when it comes to convenience. In my experience, they are very comfortable to use (especially the high-end dolls which have an anatomically correct vagina/anus) as they mimic realistic sex positions. They are also very easy to clean with a wet cloth and towel after use. I find that washing my sex doll in the shower is the most practical method (just make sure you dry thoroughly to avoid mould growth). Storage is simple as long as you deflate it after each use; doing so will allow you to fold away in your draw, cupboard or under the bed.

I hope this blog has given you some useful insights into inflatable sex dolls. In my opinion, they are a cost-effective and safe way of exploring your sexuality. Now more than ever is the time to try something different. Good luck!
