After finally deciding to get my first sex doll, I went online thinking that I would just find one I like and buy it because it would be an easy process, right? Wrong!

Been there, done that. It took me quite a time to learn all the ins and outs of the sex doll industry. Luckily, I'm ready to share my knowledge with you, and it'll take you only a few minutes to know everything

It is not so much the actual purchase that is the issue, but everything that comes beforehand.

"Think Twice - Buy Once"

I didn’t want to just jump straight in and risk making the wrong decision, so I decided to do the research to get it right first time. Before you can buy a sex doll, you need to choose one and this is easier said than done.

Know Your Options

I thought that all I needed to do to find out how much a sex doll cost was to find one that looked like my ideal woman and check out the price tag. But there is way more to it than that – there is so much to choose from! With their popularity increasing all over the world, there are many sex doll suppliers catering to the demand.

And it’s not just the look of the sex doll that needs to be taken into account. There are several factors that will affect the sex doll cost.

  • Doll size

Sex dolls come in a range of sizes and this will be a factor in the cost of the doll. Generally, the larger the doll the higher the price, though this is not all you will need to think about.

Size not only relates to height, but also to weight and it is a good idea to think about your own weight, height and strength when making your choice. This will help to ensure that you can carry and maneuver the doll, as needed, and having fun is not awkward.

  • Body Type

Whether you like ‘em big and juicy or sweet and petite, there will be a sex doll available to suit your taste. The body type will also have an effect on the size of the doll as an ample pair of titties and a nice round booty will require the use of more material, which will make the doll bigger. Similarly, this will also mean that the more curvaceous sex dolls will cost more than the slimmer ones.

  • Material

Not all sex dolls are made from the same material and this will play a part in how much it costs. They can be made from several different materials, though the main options are TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) and silicone and details of how they compare can be found here.

Not only do they have different qualities, but they have different effects on the price with silicone being more expensive. Silicone dolls are easier to maintain and are likely to last longer.

  • Number of fun holes

By thinking about how you intend to use your sex doll, you will be able to determine how many holes you want her to have. The more expensive sex dolls will tend to have three orifices.

  • Realistic appearance

If you have the money to spend, you can get a customized sex doll and this can include a highly realistic appearance. Much time and effort can be spent by the manufacturers on ensuring that she looks real, and this will cost you.

  • Optional technical features

It is not always ‘what you see is what you get’ with a sex doll. There is the possibility of it having a range of extras that you only notice once you’re having fun with her.

These can include technological advances like body heat, the ability to stand and even AI that will make her recognize you and speak or move her eyes when you are in the vicinity. If you want to include these optional features, you can expect to pay a higher price.

  • Customization

With the wide range of options available from the multiple sex doll manufacturers on the market, you can create the perfect sex doll. It is possible to customize a doll to your preference covering everything from her hairstyle to the color of her toenails. Compare suppliers to see the different options that they have available.

  • How long it should last

The length of time that a sex doll lasts will depend on how often you use her and how you treat her, for a start. The quality of the materials and manufacturing process used to make her will also play a part in determining her life span.

It was useful to do a comparison between different suppliers as I found the same doll on different websites for different prices. There are other benefits that sellers can provide besides price, such as lower shipping costs or a greater number of customizable options.

What’s the Bottom Line on the Sex Doll Cost?

The wide range of suppliers on the market supply a wide range of dolls which means that there are options available for every pocket. I found that no matter what your price range, you will be able to find the best doll for you.

Most common sex dolls price ranges are:

  • Budget sex dolls

Will be the most basic versions of what is available on the market, and may also be referred to as ‘mini dolls’. These sex dolls will often be smaller in stature so are ideal for people who like more petite women. Sex dolls at this level will often not be made from the highest quality materials or be customizable, but they can still do the job.


You will be able to find them at a price of US$550 - $900.

  •  Entry level

Dolls are ideal for those looking to get their first sex doll as they offer everything you need.


These dolls, which cost around US$900 – $1500, will last long enough for you to get a significant amount of pleasure from them, and will give you a good idea of what you want from your ideal doll.

  • Mid-level

Sex doll within the mid-level price range of US$1500 - $2800 is one that will provide all that you need for your pleasure for many years. There will be a certain level of customization available and they will be made from high quality materials. Dolls at this level can be created to be perfect for your needs.

  • High end


When you want the crème de la crème, you can expect to pay around US$2800 - $15000 for a top of the range sex doll. These sex dolls will not only be highly realistic, but they can be customized to your taste.

I had to keep my budget in mind when looking at all the options for what a sex doll costs to avoid getting carried away with all the specifications. This meant I could get the type of sex doll that suited the money I had to spend.

Lacking Funds?

I found that even the sex doll cost at the lower end of the price range can be expensive if you’re hurting for disposable income. With this being the case, I also looked for some cheaper alternatives for those who can’t get their cash to stretch to a sex doll.

Blow-up dolls

In the event that a traditional sex doll’s cost is out of your price range, a blow-up doll will make a great alternative. These can be used in a similar way to a traditional sex doll, though without the realistic feeling or weight of the body.


These dolls can provide one or two fun holes and will be cheaper than the silicone or TPE varieties at around from $10 up to $400.

Similar to these are dolls made of polyurethane foam, which will also be lighter and less realistic.

The sensation you get when playing with these types of doll will also differ, though they can still give you a lot of pleasure. These dolls are unlikely to last as long as their silicone and TPE cousins, and will need a higher level of care during use.


These cannot be considered a doll in the traditional sense as they do not comprise the entire body, but only the mid-section.

Though this option will not offer the realism of a traditional sex doll, it will still be able to give you two fun holes to play with. It will also be lighter and easier to maneuver without limbs and a head to worry about.

These smaller, lighter alternatives will also be easier to store when they are not in use.

Research is Key

After a lot of research and comparing the sex dolls that different suppliers have to offer, I have found it is possible to get a sex doll that suits, if you really want one. Whether you only have a little bit of money to play with or money is no object, you can find a doll that will give you pleasure.

However, like everything in life, the more money you have, the more you will get. If you want a high quality, realistic sex doll that has advanced abilities, then you have to expect to part with a large chunk of change.
