A sex doll is so much more than just an adult pleasure aid or a way to keep loneliness at bay. It also represents an empowered decision to make a real investment in your solo sex life. And like any investment in your quality of life, it makes sense that you’d want to protect the integrity of your doll to the greatest extent possible.

The best way to extend the lifespan of a sex doll is to prevent harmful wear and tear before it happens, so it’s crucial to know which factors affect that. Here are some common examples every doll owner should be aware of.

1.      Material of Choice

Higher quality materials do more than just deliver a better, more realistic use experience. They also last longer and are less likely to develop problems as they age thereby extending the lifespan of your sex doll. Yes, they also cost more, but when you consider how much longer you can expect your doll to last, they represent a significantly higher overall value.

That said, opt for a doll made of top-tier silicone or TPE. Silicone tends to be more expensive overall, but it’s also easier to maintain and lasts longer. But if you really need to save a buck or two, TPE is an incredibly decent alternative and very realistic feeling. Just be prepared to spend a little more time on maintenance.

2.      Diligence with Maintenance

It’s impossible to overstress the importance of maintenance if you’re serious about owning a sex doll and making sure she stands the test of time. To begin with, diligent cleaning – especially regarding your doll’s orifices – is an essential part of taking care of your health. Cleaning your doll’s openings after each use without exception keeps your doll from harboring bacteria, viruses, and other organisms that can hurt you.

It’s also the best way to extend the lifespan of your sex doll for as long as possible. Dolls that aren’t cleaned regularly or thoroughly enough can begin to grow mold and mildew. Build-up of bodily fluids, lube, dirt, or germs can also cause your doll to start deteriorating. Every doll owner should set a cleaning and maintenance schedule that they stick to religiously for that reason.

3.      Frequency of Use

It probably makes sense that how frequently and vigorously you use your doll would also affect how long she lasts, in general. Naturally, sex dolls – especially the better ones – are built to be used more or less however their owners would like. But a gently used doll will, of course, last longer than one that’s used multiple times a day for years on end.

How you use your doll also matters. If you love having super-rough sex with yours, she’s logically going to accumulate more wear and tear, as well as be more likely to get damaged. So give some thought to your doll’s integrity when making decisions on how roughly to handle her, how to use her, and so forth.

4.      Clothing and Storage Choices

Your choices as to how to dress your doll can affect how long she lasts, as well. Be careful about clothing and lingerie choices that contain dark pigments, as they can easily stain your doll. If you really do prefer your doll in darker clothing, consider having her wear it over another garment that’s lighter and that can help protect her delicate skin.

You’ll also want to line up a proper storage option for your doll, preferably at the same time you purchase her – a storage case or a hanging hook for your closet. Leaving your doll sitting or lying in the same position for extended periods isn’t good for her. It can cause her skin to develop pressure marks, wrinkles, and other imperfections. Many surfaces can stain her skin with prolonged exposure, as well, just as clothing can.

5.      Attitude About Repairs

Sooner or later, even the most careful, diligent doll owner can wind up having an accident that leaves their doll damaged and in need of minor repairs. (Think broken finger joints, small skin tears, or stains that just won’t come out no matter what you try.) Although it might be tempting to simply let little issues like that slide, assuming it’s not that big a deal, it’s best not to do that if you care about your doll’s longevity.

Instead, consider bringing or sending her in for repairs. (The shop where you purchased her will likely have some go-to options on speed dial for their customers’ convenience.) And don’t wait to seek out repair help, either. The sooner any damage is addressed, the better.

Of course, these aren’t the only factors that can make a difference as far as how long a particular doll lasts. However, they are some of the most common, so everyone who owns a sex doll (or wants to) should be aware of them. Take good care of your doll, and you can trust that she’ll take care of you for a long time to come.
