Is it Weird to Buy a Sex Doll?

Are you concerned with what others might think of you if you purchase a sex doll? We get it! We really do. Unfortunately, sex doll owners are often portrayed as socially awkward loners who are incapable of having normal relationships. We know that nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, people who purchase sex dolls are nearly always sex positive, forward thinking, intelligent folks.

Social Acceptance of Sex Toys And Sex Dolls

Not long ago, the subject of masturbation was taboo. Very few people would even admit to engaging in self-pleasure. Even fewer would ever admit to watching porn regularly. And sex toys??? Forget it! Most men and women would have died before acknowledging they owned a vibrator or pocket pussy.

Now, conversations around sex toys, porn, and masturbation have changed entirely. People openly acknowledge that they masturbate. Women not only acknowledge owning vibrators and other sex toys, they have parties where these items are bought and sold.

We think this is wonderful. Even better, we truly believe that owning a sex doll will be regarded with just as much acceptance in the future.

Technology as Proof of Changing Attitudes

Samantha, a technically advanced doll who is powered by artificial intelligence. In addition to computerized technology, doll makers have used advances in science and engineering to build sex dolls that look and feel almost identical to real humans.

It’s important to understand that building these advanced dolls represent a significant investment of both time and money. These are not resources that companies spend thoughtlessly. They are investing in producing better sex dolls because they recognize that there is a demand for them, and that mainstream acceptance is inevitable.

So, Why The Lack of Acceptance?

We truly believe that in a few years, owning a sex doll will be completely normalized. No, not everyone will choose to own one, but it will certainly be accepted. In the meantime, here are some reasons we believe people are slow to warm up to the notion that sex dolls are healthy and normal.

Sex Dolls Are Expensive And That Makes People Uncomfortable

Let’s face it. People have strange ideas about money and sex. If you spend 1800 dollars on a sex doll, that’s going to raise some eyebrows. Should it though? Think about it. A sex doll can last for years. Yet, some of the following spends are barely noticed:

  • Spending hundreds of dollars in the VIP room at a strip club.
  • Purchasing a vibrator for 100 dollars, then replacing that vibrator every year or so.
  • Paying for premium memberships to dating and hook-up sites.
  • Buying porn.

Most people pay, in some way, to have the kind of sex we want. We also pay to have the amount of sex that we want.

Sex Toys And Porn Are Easily Hidden From View

Vibrators and sex toys can be tucked into bedside table drawers or hidden beneath pillows. Browser histories can be cleaned to eliminate almost all evidence that someone has been viewing pornography.

That’s not necessarily true of sex dolls. They’re bigger. They don’t fold away neatly. Yes, there are great storage options for your sex doll. Still, a sex doll isn’t an 8-inch vibrator. It’s also not a wand that you can pretend is a ‘massager’. 

Final Thoughts: You Can Increase Acceptance

If you own a sex doll, or plan on buying one, there are things you can do to change attitudes about sex dolls. First, be open with your sex positive friends about this. If they feel comfortable acknowledging that they watch porn or own sex toys, then they should also be accepting of your interests. If they struggle, remind them that puritanical attitudes would have once judged them just as harshly. The idea is to increase the association between sex doll ownership, and people who are accomplished, thoughtful, and emotionally intelligent.
