Big breasted sex doll is pictured who makes one wonder how much a sex doll costs that looks this realisticThere is one major question that everyone who is interested in love dolls will ask themselves at one point or another: How much is a sex doll?

More specifically people ask themselves ‘how much should I pay for a sex doll?’ and ‘Is a sex doll worth it?’

Unfortunately there is no short answer to this article’s question since it all comes down to what you want out of your doll.

In this article I will explain to you first, what key factors play a role in the widely different pricing of dolls. Then you will learn how much you can expect a sex doll to cost that fulfills your personal needs.


Factors That Affect How Much A Sex Doll Costs

Let me start with this: There are many different sex dolls out there and they come in all kinds of price ranges.

With this said, you might wonder why this is.

What exactly is the reason for the widely different pricing of sex dolls? And how much is a sex doll now? Exactly?

It basically all comes down to the following four main key factors.

  • Type of material
Industry grade silicone is pressed out of a pipe. It looks not lifelike at all this way so sex dolls must be quite hard to produce

This is how industry silicone looks like. Crazy how this can become a sexy love doll!

Is the doll made out of rubber, latex, TPE or silicone?

Rubber and latex dolls are only used in the bottom barrel of sex dolls, they are not relevant in this article.

TPE and Silicone are the modern industry standard for fuck puppets. They both imitate human skin extremely well, not only when looking at it but also when touching it.

Silicone is more expensive while TPE is cheaper, however TPE comes with disadvantages like porousness and it can’t resist heat.

You can find dolls made from both materials in most price ranges.

  • Quality of material

Is the doll made out of low or high quality TPE or silicone?

Quality plays an important role in the production of love dolls. Higher grade materials will always cost more than lower grade ones.

When TPE is produced, multiple plastics are mixed together. The more plastics are used and depending on how impure they are you will get low quality TPE. The opposite is the case when fewer pure plastics are mixed, the result is high quality TPE. The idea is similar for silicone.

Obviously, the higher quality and more expensive the raw materials are, the more expensive the doll will be.

You get the idea?

If you wanted to put it on a scale, one could say that low quality TPE is the cheapest and high grade silicone is the most expensive material.

  • Amount of material used

How tall is the doll and how much does it weigh?

The next factor to consider is the amount of TPE or silicone a doll needs to represent a lifelike doll.

A slim, light and small doll will cost much less than a thick, heavy and tall one. This is because e.g. a tall doll simply has to imitate more skin surface than a small one.

Makes sense doesn’t it?

An interesting fact here, is that weight is a minor factor because it can be influenced by the skeleton of a love doll.

  • Detail richness and realism of doll

Does the doll barely look and feel real or is it lifelike?

The last factor you should look at is that the amount of detail that goes into building a lifelike sex doll has its costs. Art simply needs time and has a high price.

Why art?

Artists like professional sculptors and painters are employed to create molds, models and lifelike body parts like eyes or genitalia. Not all parts of the puppet can be mass produced and need to be at least partly handmade. All this has to be as anatomically correct as possible for a realistic sex doll.

Plus, the more lifelike the doll is supposed to be, the better quality material it needs which drives up the cost even more.

However, if you don’t necessarily want a realistic sex doll then this factor doesn’t matter as much as the other factors do.

Now the question ‘how much is a sex doll?’ doesn’t seem as easy as before anymore, right? There’s a lot to think about.

If you want to learn more about the key factors that affect the price of love puppets, check out my buyers guide. There I explain all of it more in depth and even have a handy table for the differences between TPE and silicone dolls. Just scroll to the ‘What kind of sex dolls exist?’ section.

Entry Level Sex Dolls

These are the cheapest of our beloved sex dolls. I would consider this category to be in a price

range from $400 to $1.000.

Starting with cheap sex dolls I want to give you some quick advice. If you’re unsure if a sex doll is an option for you then you

should consider buying a cheap one instead of a midrange or high-end sex doll.

  • What if you don’t like the experience at all?

It would be a waste to pay thousands of dollars for an item that you use once or twice and then it just lies around.

Plus, it’s a real struggle to get rid of because you can’t really sell it secondhand (who the hell wants a used sex doll?) and just deposing it in your trash also doesn’t work well.

Anyway, if you think a cheap sex doll would be for you this is what you need to know about their features:

  • Predominantly TPE
  • Lower to mid-range quality material
  • Easier to handle and keep secret
  • Rather small and light
  • Feels and looks rather unrealistic
  • Rather undetailed & unproportional body features
  • Break easily and age badly (1-2years)
  • Will leak oils eventually
  • Not all orifices usable

Here is how those kinds of dolls look like.

Not disappointing at all!

Mid-range Sex Dolls

A really lifelike love mannequin is depicted in revealing sports clothing. She is beautiful and yet relatively cheap.

When you were asking yourself ‘how much is a sex doll?’ you didn’t expect her to be mid-range did you?

Next up are the mid-range sex dolls, which are priced from $1.000 – $2.500. You should be looking at these instead of cheap ones if you’re sure that a sex doll is precisely what you need for whatever reason you’d want one for.

You can definitely get a good looking, realistic and affordable love doll in this price range that will provide you with an impressive experience. While cheap fuck puppets are not available in that many variants and customizations are limited, a mid-range doll gives you more options.

There are hundreds of different models with good customization options, however when you look closely you will notice that these dolls are not near perfection yet.

Here are some primary qualities you should know about:

  • TPE or silicone options
  • Quality of material ranges from low to high TPE and low to mid-grade silicone
  • Silicone options most likely aren’t platinum cured
  • Various size and weight options
  • Realistic feel and appearance of body features
  • Smaller details might be neglected (e.g. fingers)
  • Age better but noticeably (2-3 years)
  • Skeleton and joints more durable & sturdier
  • Will leak oils eventually
  • 2-3 Orifices available

Various mid-range love puppets are depicted. They all look very realistic and lifelike despite being mid-range and can definitely compete against high-end ones. Only disadvantage is that they won't last as long.

They are all amazingly beautiful. Which one do you like best?

High-end Sex Dolls

This category is the most expensive one with prices ranging from $2.500 – $10.000 or

Top notch quality!

possibly even more! If you want an amazing doll right away or if you have experience with them already, you should opt for this category.

If you are paying for an rather expensive love puppet you’ll get a lifelike companion that won’t disappoint.

These prices don’t just pay for the best quality, they often include a lot of customizations. Of course you don’t have to customize, but it is recommended when you’re already willing to pay top dollar for a fuck puppet. This way you can get your dream woman and fulfill your biggest fantasies.

This is what you should know:

  • Few TPE, mostly silicone dolls
  • Highest quality TPE and silicone
  • Silicone dolls are platinum cured = no leaking
  • All sizes and weights are possible
  • Both feeling and appearance is lifelike
  • Body features are detail-rich and realistic (e.g. eyelashes, freckles, moles etc.)
  • Age well (3+ years)
  • Very durable and sturdy due to strong skeleton
  • 3 Orifices
  • Highly customizable

Here is how those love puppets could look like:

Incredibly lifelike. Amazing aren’t they?

Affordable Alternatives To Sex Dolls

Now that we had a look at these, let’s talk about what to do when you don’t want to buy a whole sex doll. This might have various reasons like not being able to hide a big sex doll or it being to expensive.

Don’t you worry, there are a few options out there and although they might not be as close to the real thing as a love puppet, they are still amazing at getting you off.

Blow-up Sex Dolls

An unrealistic blow-up doll is depicted. She doesn't compete against real fuck mannequins at all, the only advantage is the cost.

Not so great compared to a realistic love puppet but still does the job.

Everybody knows these, right? Priced from $10 – $100, one can tell that these aren’t made from high quality material, aren’t durable or realistic etc. Some are more realistic than others due to more detailed body features or amount of orifices, so you could try these out if you are into sex dolls.

They are seen more as a joke gift but honestly, they are an easy and affordable alternative to a real love puppet.

  • Cheap
  • Low quality material
  • Doesnt’ feel or look realistic
  • Easy to hide
  • Has to inflated to be used
  • Break quickly & easily
  • 0-3 Orifices

Fleshlights, Fleshjacks and Strokers

4 Different fleshlights are depicted with different kinds of holes. Mouth, anus and vagina options exist and will definitely get you off more than a few times.

These are great masturbation aids.

Next up are fleshlights. You may have heard of them already, they are basically masturbating aids that model an orifices of your choice. The official brand is priced at $40 – $80 while off-brands range from $10 – $100.

Fleshjacks are a great way of getting off, it’s just that the physical presence is lacking compared to a sex doll as it is simply a hole. A pocket pussy is money well spent though because of its simplicity and other advantages.

Foot flashjacks are perfect for guys who are into feet and fetishists. There are also versions for guys who are into hands.

Perfect for foot fetishists!

  • Relatively Inexpensiv
  • Higher quality material
  • Feels good and realistic
  • Lacks humanlike presence
  • Easy to hide and travel with
  • Ages very well, can be used many times
  • Many of them are adjustable or have exchangeable tops/holes
  • 1-2 orifices (there are double ended ones)
  • Pro-tip: If you’re a foot or hand fetishist, you could be into those unique foot/hand fleshlights!


Last but not least we have torsos as a slightly more expensive but still affordable alternative to love dolls. The cost of a torso lies between $100 – $1500 but it really depends because there are various torso options. They are a great alternative to our fuck puppets because you don’t have to pay and commit as much as with a real love mannequin.

3 Different kinds of torsos are depicted. One has legs while the others don't. They can make a great alternative for a real love doll

Which one would you pick?

Regarding these, it’s important to know that there are hip only and hip+legs torsos as well as torsos that have breasts and a head while missing only their legs.

  • TPE and silicone options
  • Decent quality material
  • Quite durable
  • Easier to hide than a full love puppet
  • Feels good and realistic
  • Lacks humanlike presence
  • 1-3 Orifices
