Hey friend. Have you been hearing a lot about TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) dolls and vibrators how you can have sex with them? Well, to be frank, this trend has always struck me as a bit concerning.
The idea of having sex with a completely manmade doll seems a bit too weird for my tastes. It’s almost like a real person minus the soulness that cannot come from a manufactured item. To me it always seemed totally counterintuitive – like why not just focus on the connections we can make with real people, the ones with heartbeats and brains and a soul?
But, as I finally acknowledged, maybe I was being a bit close-minded. After doing a bit of research, I realise that there are many valid reasons why people would want to have sex with sex dolls. For example, sexual fantasies can become a reality with the help of the dolls, and they do not require the awkwardness of traditional dating.
Also, people may feel like they lack emotional connections in their own lives. And while I one hundred percent agree that you should never seek out a TPE doll as a substitute for human companionship, I can understand why some people might think otherwise.
However, I still don’t think having sex with a doll is the healthiest idea out there. In addition to the dolls being incredibly expensive, dildos I simply can’t seem to wrap my head around the specifics of the entire process. It seems deeply odd and I’m not sure how it can possibly replicate any of the pleasure found in real-life relationships.
I also recognize that certain aspects of this phenomena can be really creepy and can cause huge public outcry. This is especially true when it comes to dolls that have minimal clothing and suggest that they are minors. I think it’s important to remember that, while it may seem like an adult is just having a bit of harmless fun with these dolls, their actions can actually be sending out a powerfully inappropriate message.
Moreover, with sex dolls, there’s always an underlying risk of dependency and using it to dodge real socialisation. This is potentially a really risky dynamic and not one that I would recommend to anyone. However, at the same time, if you’re a consenting adult, then I guess it’s up to you and your partner to use a doll as you please.
But, whatever the temptation may be, I would urge people to not get too obsessed with the idea of having sex with a doll. To me, it’s important to remember – there are always other options out there, both in terms of real relationships, and in terms of exploring our sexual desires and fantasies safely.
