Why Are Some Sex Dolls So Expensive

We all know that sex toys aren’t cheap. Some of them might even cost upwards of $300. But, when we enter the world of sex dolls – $300 dollars won’t even cover the shipping. Now, it is understandable that a life-sized sex doll would be a lot more expensive than a vibrator, but why is it so much expensive. After all, medical-grade silicone is nothing more than synthetic rubber, so why is the price tag so high?

What’s The Average Price For A Doll?

In most cases, an average life-sized doll can be found anywhere from $1500 to $2500 – which is a lot of money. In most of the world, people don’t even make $1500 for a few months. However, some dolls can even be more than $3000. If you take a look at the Southern Treasures, you’ll even find dolls over $4000. And if you really want something special, like a custom, hyper-realistic sex doll – be prepared to spend upwards of $10,000

Are There Any Affordable Dolls?

Sure, you could get a sex doll for around $600, but at that point, you’d be buying a cheap, low-quality doll that is probably going to last no more than six months, even with the best possible care. So, don’t try and save your money this way.

Why Are They So Expensive?

First of all, it’s not the material that is expensive – it’s the craftsmanship. It takes a lot of hard work and effort to create a life-sized sex doll that everyone can enjoy. After the silicone has been molded and shaped, you have to go through the painting and customization process and all that fun stuff.

Also, the key is in quality. As we’ve said, you can find a cheap doll, but it simply won’t last. High-quality, expensive dolls will last a few years with proper care and maintenance, so when you factor that in – you get a reasonable price point.

Now, a sex doll is a niche product, and as we all know, marketing niche products can be pretty expensive. So, if you want to get on a map – you need to invest more in marketing, which also contributes to the higher product price.

Furthermore, it’s not like you’re only getting a naked doll when you order one. Most of the time, you get several clothing items, some lingerie, makeup, wigs, cleaning and maintenance equipment, and material, heating rod, and all of that comes in a heavy-duty shipping box. All of these are worth items are worth a lot of money, so that’s another thing to keep in mind.

Finally, most of these dolls weigh over 60 pounds, so shipping is anything but easy. First of all, that means you need to find a reliable shipping service, get insurance and make sure your packaging is durable and protective. Also, some shipping companies won’t even work with doll manufacturers, which makes this whole process even more excruciating.
