How the Sex Doll Industry is Adapting to Consumer Demands

Once commonly (and quite unfairly) viewed as something reserved only for the local neighborhood oddball, owning a sex doll has grown in popularity over the last decade and is now considered a healthy, almost normal aspect of adult erotic pastime with everyday people from all walks of life, genders, and age groups getting in on the fun.

The figures speak for themselves, with sex doll sales approaching a staggering 3 billion annually and just under 10% of male Americans having purchased at least one sex doll at some point.

This isn’t something only the guys are enjoying, either. Female Americans are also beginning to appreciate sex dolls in growing numbers, with just over 6% of U.S. females purchasing a silicon companion at some point, according to recent studies. To say the industry is booming would be something of an understatement, but why is this happening, and is the demand expected to grow further?

Recent Growth

Growth was inevitable, really. Sex toys in general – from standard vibrators and dildos to quirky ball gags and whips – used to be something that only highly sexually adventurous people would confess to owing barely a few decades ago. These days, however, keeping a dildo in the bedside drawer is as normal as keeping a small bottle of Tylenol and a glass of water next to the bed.

It was simply a question of time before sex dolls evolved in the same way, becoming accepted as harmless fun and sexually healthy. Now, we are clearly at a turning point as sex doll ownership explodes in vast numbers. Add to that a couple of years of lockdown isolation in which sex doll sales tripled, and what you have left is a booming industry.


But with this boom in sales comes industry change as sex doll manufacturers begin to cater to a far wider range of people buying dolls. Gone are the days when sex dolls all looked pretty much the same – with so many tastes and preferences among the vast numbers of consumers, the manufacturers have had to get creative in design, look, and feel. Just as we all have varying tastes in sexual partners, we also have different tastes in our silicon counterparts.


So how has the sex doll industry evolved in this regard? How are manufacturers adopting a broader palette of consumer desires? In this blog post, we will look at how the industry has evolved from cheap inflatable ‘blow-up’ dolls, each one looking identical to the other, into a mega-industry producing an incredible range of dolls that caters to all tastes.


A More Personalized Path to Pleasure

In the ever-changing sex doll industry, customization has become a powerful tool to satisfy the vast desires of consumers. No longer confined to a small selection of generic and almost comical-looking figures, sex doll manufacturers have unleashed a stunning range of customization options, bringing forth a new era of bespoke experiences that cater to everyone’s unique preferences and fantasies.


Gone are the days when one-size-fits-all was the norm. The sex doll consumer of today is spoilt for choice with a vast array of possibilities. Fancy a voluptuous blonde bombshell with an hourglass figure? Or maybe a petite and slender companion better floats your boat? With manufacturers offering different body types, heights, and shapes, consumers now have the power to sculpt dream partners of all shapes and sizes.
