Have you ever been curious about the intricate process involved in creating a sex doll? We’re not just talking about the customization options during the shopping experience, but rather the fascinating journey of how these stunningly lifelike bodies are manufactured. While the process of making silicone sex dolls has garnered significant attention, thanks in part to silicon industry leaders like RealDoll, there’s still a veil of mystery surrounding the creation of TPE sex dolls. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the artistry and dedication required to bring these TPE beauties to life. So, take a moment to watch the video above and explore as Falo explain the craftsmanship behind the creation of these alluring and seductive works of art.

What is TPE

TPE, short for thermoplastic elastomer, is a versatile material utilized in various industries, like shoes and cars, and also the production of sex dolls. The process of creating TPE dolls typically involves the following eight key steps.

Step One: Material Mixture

The initial stage entails blending the necessary ingredients for TPE, which typically consist of oil, powder, and additives. Mineral oil is commonly used as the oil component, while various TPE powders make up the powder component. Additives, such as color powder and deodorant, are incorporated as well. The composition of the powder affects both the cost and quality of the resulting TPE material. The mixture is combined and allowed to settle overnight before being placed in an extruder to melt and form a liquid state suitable for pouring into the mold.

Step Two: Mold Design and Selection

Mold design and selection play a critical role in the manufacturing process. The mold is instrumental in determining the shape and dimensions of the doll, requiring careful consideration to ensure realistic proportions and features. Additionally, the mold must be constructed from durable materials capable of withstanding the high temperatures and pressures encountered throughout the manufacturing process.

Step Three: Skeleton Binding

Following mold preparation, a metal wire and joint skeleton is carefully bound inside. This skeleton contributes to the doll’s posture and flexibility. The binding process demands physical strength and meticulous attention to detail, with skilled experts highly valued in this field. The quality of the skeleton directly impacts the doll’s pose and smooth articulation, with some manufacturers incorporating unique skeleton production methods.

Step Four: Pouring the Material into the Mold

Once the skeleton is securely in place, the TPE material is poured into the mold. The mold is then lifted using an overhead chain, allowing the material to cool and solidify. The cooling duration varies based on factors such as material type, temperature, and manufacturing processes employed by individual factories. Different cooling methods, such as water or air cooling, may be employed to expedite the process.

Step Five: Removing the Doll from the Mold

After the TPE material has sufficiently cooled and solidified, the doll is carefully extracted from the mold. This step necessitates caution to prevent damage, particularly to the delicate fingers and toes. It’s worth noting that some dolls may sustain damage during this process, resulting in defects.

Step Six: Trimming and Ironing

Once removed from the mold, the doll undergoes trimming and ironing to refine its appearance. This meticulous process involves attention to detail and patience to ensure a smooth and polished final product. Areas requiring trimming include removing small bumps on the head and excess material around the mouth and ears.

Step Seven: Coloring and Powdering

Following the trimming and ironing stage, the doll is colored and powdered to enhance its realism and tactile qualities. Paint, typically mixed with alcohol or oil, is applied using a spray gun. The longevity of the paint depends on factors such as skin oil production and usage. Powdering is crucial for TPE dolls as their skin tends to be sticky. Talcum powder is commonly used by manufacturers, although it can be harmful if inhaled extensively. Cornstarch powder is a safer alternative as a protective powder for the doll.

Step Eight: Packaging and Shipping

Packaging is an essential aspect to ensure the safe delivery of the doll to its destination. Doll companies employ protective packaging methods to withstand transportation-related impacts. Discreet packaging is often employed to safeguard customer privacy.


That’s pretty much about the generic SOP of TPE sex doll factories. However, please bear in mind that the actual process would vary slightly in one way or another according to the actual brand/factory. Competition is super tough among factories and they typically “copy” each other very quickly, so it is hard for them to disclose their real core proprietary material or certain specific methodologies and that would be the limit of this post. Why would we blame any business wanting to enjoy a longer premium by keeping their secrets?
