Even though more and more adults seem to be using (or perhaps being a bit more open about their use of) sex toys, not everyone has the same comfort level with these items. And even with greater acceptance of sex toys, the sex doll continues to have a certain reputation that prevents many from acknowledging their interest in this option. However, when used with proper attention to penis care, a sex doll can become a welcome addition to a man’s masturbatory routines.
For years, the sex doll was seen as something that only desperate men used, but the fact is that many men with a healthy sex life enjoy making use of a doll as well. Sales of these dolls have risen steadily in recent years, and advances in manufacturing and technology have created a whole line of lifelike and expensive dolls.
Many men prefer to use a doll rather than simply masturbate with their hand because of its similarity to actual intercourse. And many men also believe that because of its resemblance to intercourse, it enables them improve penis health and work on issues, such as premature ejaculation, or to enhance their technique when they are in bed with a partner.
This article will focus on the more traditional (and less expensive, and therefore more readily available) blow-up sex doll. But it’s important to acknowledge that many options do exist in this area.
The following tips are suggested for men interested in exploring a sex doll option.
- Use lubricant. Although the dolls are designed for penetrative exploration, there can still be significant friction. Using an appropriate form of lubrication will protect the penis from wear and tear.
- Try a pump. Blowing up a full-size doll can take a lot of lung power. Using an electric pump is a much better idea.
- Clean it thoroughly. Be sure to thoroughly clean all parts of the doll after use, especially the areas of penetration. A doll should come with instructions on the best way to maintain its cleanliness, and it is important that a man follow these instructions.
- Avoid a trial run. Some guys have friends who use a sex doll and may be tempted to ask if they can try it out for themselves. In general, it’s best to avoid this. Not everyone is as scrupulous about cleaning up after themselves as they should be. If a man does use another’s doll, he should wear a condom – just in case the owner has left traces of himself behind.
- Be aware of noise. Some dolls can be surprisingly squeaky. If a man wishes to keep his activities clandestine, he may want to refrain from utilizing a doll except when he is sure he is alone.
- Consider storage. When deflated, most dolls do not take a great deal of space, but it may not fit easily into a small space, either. Some men feel uncomfortable with other people knowing they use a doll; such men are advised to consider where they can store the doll when not in use.
