Should You Buy a Sex Toy or a Sex Doll?


Humans have a natural drive to seek sexual fulfillment. When they don’t find that with a partner, they seek out other methods. In fact, even when they do have a willing and available partner, most people still engage in masturbation and sexual fantasy.

Like anything else, whatever humans do, they try to find ways to do them better through technology. That has led to the creation of a variety of masturbators. These can be divided into two categories, sex toys and sex dolls.

If you are shopping for a sex doll, you may have wondered if you could get the same satisfaction from another sex toy, perhaps one that is less expensive. To get the answer to that question, keep reading.

Let’s Talk About Sex Toys

Sex toys are a fairly broad category of objects used for sexual fulfillment. These are pocket pussies, dildos, butt plugs, blow job machines, vibrating eggs, and more. Men and women use these items to enhance their solo and partnered experiences. Now, let’s look at the pros and cons.


  • Sex toys for every budget
  • Variety of Types
  • Most toys are fairly discreet
  • A toy for every type of sex you can imagine
  • Appropriate for every gender


  • Not very realistic
  • Limited options
  • Lack of intimacy
  • Ends up in a landfill sooner than later

Ultimately, you can enjoy a great orgasm with a sex doll. The downside is that they are fairly basic devices, and don’t do much to stir up exciting sexual experiences.

Now Sex Dolls

Sex dolls don’t really require a description. You’ve likely seen plenty of them on our site. What’s more important is to understand why they were invented. When it comes to sexual satisfaction, people want great experiences. Think about it. Would you rather play a video game with fake, blocky looking characters, or one that has high quality animation and real characters.

Of course, you want the real experience. That’s why sex dolls were invented, and why they continue to be improved even today. That leads us to the pros and cons of sex dolls.


  • Strong intimacy
  • Companionship is possible
  • Unlimited positions and flexibility
  • Very realistic
  • Can be repaired
  • Lasts for many years


  • Can be pricey
  • Not always discreet

Sex dolls are ideal for someone who wants an experience that is as close to the real thing as possible.

What’s The Winner?

There’s no slamming sex toys. They certainly have their place. Best of all, they are inexpensive enough that you can buy several to try them out, and keep them around for some quick fun.

But, let’s be honest. If you really want to simulate amazing sex with a beautiful woman or hot guy, you need something better. You can’t wrap your arms or legs around a vibrator, or stroke the cheek of your pocket pussy. For these things, you need a realistic sex doll made from silicone or TPE.

Any Alternatives?

What if there was a way for you to balance the amazing look and feel of a sex doll with something more budget friendly? Good news! There is. If you aren’t ready to own a full-size sex doll, consider owning accessories such as breasts, torsos, vaginas, and other realistic body parts. These are perfect for masturbation while giving you a realistic feeling experience.
