Silicon Wives Review: A Good Place to Shop for Sex Dolls?

silicon wives sex doll review

Let’s not beat around the bush here: We all know if we’re buying a sex doll, it’s better to get something nice.

Silicon Wives is one of many companies that have recently entered the stage,  but are their products worth the cost?

Here are my thoughts on Silicon Wives luxury sex dolls, including the different types of products and how well they compare to other companies

How Is Siliconwives.com in General?

Siliconwives.com sells dolls across several different categories, including different sizes, art styles, and components.

Product Quality - Good

Silicon Wives dolls are made with metal skeletons for durability and flexibility, which are then covered in silicone or TPE for different skin-like feels and textures.

These are immediately better than, say, a sex-doll-blow-up toy like you might find from other retailers.

The metal skeletons are capable of absorbing heavy impacts over time without deforming, which is especially useful if you prefer being rougher with your toys.

The metal skeletons also support movable joints for dolls that allow different positions.

Meanwhile, the skin-like covering provides a pleasant, realistic sensation while you’re using the doll.

Product Variety - Both Good and Bad

I’m not outright amazed by the variety of products, but the fact that you can easily customize the dolls means that there are far more combinations than they show on the pages.

Ultimately, I see the premade dolls as samples of what they can do with custom dolls.

Silicon Wives sells dolls by size (mini, mid-size, large, and life-size), style (Asian, blonde, big boobs, flat-chested, black, male, and fantasy), and material (TPE and silicone).

Custom dolls can be made through a combination of pictures, measurements, and descriptions.

While these are more expensive than their premade-dolls, each doll is custom-made and can therefore look like almost anything.

The limits here are that Silicon Wives does not create dolls in the likeness of celebrities or trademarked entities (without permission) and adamantly refuses to make child sex dolls.

Silicon Wives also sells a few accessories (including a storage case) and individual pieces like Silicon Wives feet.

Note that individual components may not be compatible with products from other manufacturers, so there’s a limit to how much you can mix-and-match.

Shipping - Reasonable

Shipping times depend on what you’re ordering. Premade, ready-to-ship dolls go out from their warehouse in about three days, with free express shipping worldwide and discreet tracking and billing. 

Custom dolls will take longer depending on the complexity and the possible need to order customized clothing or parts, so it’s hard to estimate that.

Still, most will probably ship within a few weeks and arrive a few days later.

Anything shipping from overseas will probably take about two weeks to arrive, or more if it’s caught up in covid-related shipping delays.

That’s usually not a problem, but it is worth keeping in mind as an outside possibility.

Customer Service - Good

Customer service is available through chat on their website (during business hours), email, and telephone.

The chat system is useful when people are around, but realistically, you’ll be doing most of your communication through email.

Payments - Good

Silicon Wives allows three major types of payments, including credit/debit cards, limited cryptocurrency options, and payments over time through Klarna.

They don’t currently offer direct PayPal purchases, but you can get around this by getting a PayPal debit card.

Materials - Good

Both silicone and TPE are good materials for covering a sex doll. Of the two, TPE is a somewhat better material because it’s both more affordable and more skin-like in texture.

Most people find that this makes for a better experience overall.

My Experience

Ordering products from sex doll sites is always an exciting experience, especially when you’re dealing with the luxury side of things.

To put it another way, I’d hate to spend $2000 on a doll and have it turn out to be junk.

That’s why I started by taking a look through their product categories to get a sense of the variety of their wares.

I liked the design of some of the dolls, but not quite all of them. For example, they sell some large-breasted sex dolls that are very anatomically incorrect, and I’m not into that sort of thing. 

I know some people are, though, so I’m not judging them too harshly for selling them.

Next, I looked at their part categories, starting with the legs and feet section.

You can tell a lot about a company by the variety of individual components they sell, and Silicon Wives only had three products there when I checked.

That suggests that instead of merely fitting premade parts together, they are sculpting products individually.

In the end, all of this reinforced my initial belief that they’re really a custom sex doll company, and the existing products are there mainly as samples of their artistry and to help figure out what customers are interested in buying.

Ultimately, I decided to order one of their waist-focused products.

The shipping was a little slower than I wanted, coming in at around three weeks after it got out of the warehouse.

That was a negative for me, but it’s not one I blame the company for.

As of this review, overseas shipping lines are still being affected by coronavirus-related delays, and there’s only so much any company can do about that.

I was impressed by the attention to detail here, though I’ll spare you the full details of my tests.

The quality is fundamentally acceptable thanks to the marvelous use of TPE and it felt quite realistic, although it remains to be seen how well they’ll hold up over time.

Storing my product was easy enough, although I did have to get a separate box for it.

Overall, I like the products themselves, although I think parts like the sex dolls torsos are somewhat overpriced compared to getting a full-size doll.

People have different preferences, so proper pricing for different segments of the market is essential.

I think these are good products for most men, but only if you have a living situation that supports getting and storing dolls.

The full-size dolls are big, so even in a box, they’re going to take up some space.

How to Use Different Types of Silicon Wives Products?

Modern sex dolls aren’t just something to shoot a shot into. You can use them with masturbators, VR headsets, or other products to create a more immersive experience.

In fact, I recommend this. If you’re paying almost two thousand dollars for a sex doll, you might as well go all the way and get the most enjoyment out of it.

Some sex doll manufacturers may have extra components and gimmicks to set their products apart from the competition, ranging from vibration functions to gently heated elements in pursuit of realism.

This is not the case for silicon wives. So, if you are someone who's into adding extra sensation, I suggest to combine the sex doll with some amazing sex toys.

Silicon Wives vs. Realdoll

Realdoll is one of Silicon Wives’ top competitors, with a similar focus on mostly-lifelike products. With that in mind, how do they compare to each other?

  • Quality: Realdoll. Their products generally include higher-quality components, which is possible in part thanks to their high pricing giving them the money to invest in better parts.
  • Options: Tie. Realdoll has significantly more premade components, including a wide variety of faces, hair options, eye options, and more. They also sell male parts. However, Silicon Wives provides wholly custom dolls, which means they have a theoretically infinite number of designs.
  • Shipping: Silicon Wives. SW offers free worldwide shipping. Realdoll starts shipping at over $500 within the United States and much more internationally.
  • Price: Silicon Wives. Realdolls usually cost at least 2.5x more than Silicon Wives, so one of these companies is clearly better if you’re on a budget.
  • Value For Price: Silicon Wives. At the price Realdoll asks, I’d expect fully custom detailing instead of a collection of assembled (albeit compatible) parts. Realdoll is good, but I think they’re overpriced for what they’re selling.
  • Customer Service: Tie. Both have chat systems, telephone, and email contacts. However, if pressed, I think Realdoll has a slight edge here because they have a separate place to request repairs. Such repairs are expensive, but at least they are available.

How to Clean and Maintain Sex Dolls

First of all, you need to clean your dolls after each use. It doesn’t matter if you have a fancy, full-body doll like the Silicon Wives Dominique model or a basic, partial body part.

Clean it every time, or it’s going to smell and get nasty quick.

Next, spray the inside of your doll with a mixture of warm water and mild soap, making sure to cover it in different directions.

Once you’re done spraying the inside, use running water if possible to flush out the insides. This will get most of the gunk and debris out of it.

After that, pat the inside dry using a microfiber towel or a similar product.

Always store your dolls in room-temperature areas when they’re not in use.

Finally, always try to use lubrication if possible. Water-based lubes are the best choice for silicone and TPE dolls because other chemicals might cause damage.

If you’re not sure whether your preferred product will work, just write to Silicon Wives and they can provide more information.

Verdict

Overall, I rate Silicon Wives an 8/10. Their emphasis on fully custom dolls means they have fundamentally outstanding flexibility for meeting your personal tastes, and that’s something that helps them stand apart from other sex doll makers.
