Finding the right balance for your doll in a given position requires practice. Sex dolls manipulation is an important topic we are covering below. You will find that there is a learning curve when it comes to handling and manipulating TPE or silicone sex dolls around.
It can be quite a workout at first, when you are not used to it. Keep in mind that using counter-balances is critical to make all posture change effortless. If switching your doll into a given position seems to tiring or complicated, you are doing it wrong.
Take a break and think of an alternative way to achieve the posture you are trying to articulate your doll into. Make sure to check our below tips on “Sex dolls manipulation using counterweights”.
Silicone or TPE dolls are a kind of human-like model with a height and weight close to that of a real person. Our TPE dolls can move as a real person would as a result, your doll can take any kind of poses.
WARNING: Sex dolls, are heavy, and feel heavier to carry (as being a dead weight). For those with back problem, be careful while manipulating your doll, remember that it takes time and practice to learn how to carry her around the optimal way.
You need time to get more familiar with your doll, in order to find the most comfortable, stimulating and pleasurable positions.
1. SILICONE & TPE DOLLS MANIPULATION
Silicone or TPE doll manipulation has a quick learning curve, and we recommend that you ideally keep both hands and feet protective foam packing on, while undergoing this quick process. This will allow extra security just in case you were to bump her hand(s) or feet somewhere, for example.
Sometimes while carrying or switching the pose of your doll, you might not realize that fingers are getting stuck in a position that could damage the wires inside of them, or have them poke through the skin.
In order to master sex doll manipulation effortlessly, you need to: (a) Checkout our below steps about unpacking as well as how to lift heavy objects the right way. (b) Visualize the skeleton and where joints are located, and (c) Use your opponent’s strength to your advantage, that’s right, just like in Judo – Counterweights.
1.1. HOW TO USE COUNTERWEIGHTS
Certain sex dolls have stiffer joints than others, making it rather physical to manipulate sometimes especially if you do not use counterweights. Knowing how to use counterweights in your advantage will allow you to move your sex doll effortlessly. Below are a few tips on how to proceed for different silicone or TPE doll body parts.
Please note that this guide is solely dedicated to authentic premium sex doll brands that have a specific skeleton type. The skeleton is not the same for cheaper inferior quality TPE dolls, or counterfeit copies, which have much more limited movement ranges.
1.2. NECK MANIPULATION
Moving the neck is easier while your doll’s head is mounted onto the body. If you are using the latest quick connector (not the standard screw), watchout not to have the head pop and fall off while doing so.
BEND SIDEWAYS: Placing yourself either in front or behind your doll, simply put one hand onto the shoulder or neck, closest to the direction you want to bend the head into. Put the second hand on the side of the head opposite to where your first hand is located, and push gently. Remove the wig while doing so to prevent it turning oily (or apply pressure to the temple instead of the wig).
BEND UPWARD: Placing yourself in front of your doll, put one hand on the back of her neck and one hand (or 2,3 fingers) on her forehand, then push gently. As per above, ideally remove the wig first. Avoid putting your hand on the eyebrow makeup or eyeshadow.
BEND DOWNWARD: Placing yourself in front of your doll, put one hand on the throat of your doll and one hand behind the top of her head (remove the wig first). Use that second hand to push gently the head down, while applying pressure onto her throat.
1.3. SHOULDERS MANIPULATION
Moving the shoulders is easy and effortless, when you position yourself the right way. Here also, mastering counterweights are key. See below steps:
BRING SHOULDERS BACKWARD: Placing yourself behind your doll, spread her arms up a little and put your arms at elbow level, underneath your doll’s armpits. Curl your forearms and reach with both hands for the back of her neck (your fingernails should now be close to your chin). Pull your shoulders and arms back and push with both hands onto your doll’s neck. Your forearms will press against the front of your doll’s shoulders and pull them backward.
BRING SHOULDERS FORWARD: Placing yourself in front of your doll, do the same headlock as per above but from upfront. Place both of your arms at elbow level underneath your doll’s armpits, curl your forearms and reach for your doll’s throat. Pull your shoulders back and use both hands to gently push on your doll’s throat to move shoulders forward.
Alternatively you can place a knee in between her breasts (or in the middle of her back if you want to bring shoulders backward instead) and place both hands on your doll’s scapulas (or front of shoulders for backward). Using your knee as a counterweight (make sure your pants are clean), gently pull both shoulders towards you.
MOVE SHOULDERS INDEPENDENTLY: If you only wish to move one shoulder, use counterweights on the opposite shoulder. If you want to bring for example the right shoulder backward, place a hand on the right front shoulder of your doll, and the other on the left scapula. To move the right shoulder forward, place a hand on the right scapula of your doll, and the other on the left front shoulder.
1.4. HIPS MANIPULATION
Twisting the hips can be difficult and physical if you do not do it right. The trick here is to lock the legs. Checkout how to effortlessly below:
TWIST HIPS BOTH WAYS: Did you know that your doll’s waist can also twist? To do so:
STEP 1: Make sure that the back is straight and not arched to be able to twist optimally
STEP 2: Place yourself in front of your doll with both of your legs outside of your doll’s legs (your doll legs should be in between your legs). You are going to use your thighs to prevent your doll’s leg from moving
STEP 3: Place both hands on each one of your doll’s front shoulder and scapula. (If you want to twist clockwise, place your left hand on your doll’s right front shoulder, and your right hand on the left scapulas. If you want to twist the hips counterclockwise, place your left hand on your doll’s right scapula, and your right hand on the right front shoulder)
STEP 4: With quick and gentle strokes, push one shoulder backward with one hand and pull the opposite one forward with the other hand. Use your legs here to prevent your doll’s legs from moving while you are pushing/pulling on the shoulders.
You can also twist the waist from behind, but your doll’s leg will be harder to lock in (you can use your feet).
2 MOVEMENT RANGES
Our dolls are made to simulate human poses, and need to be handled with care and common sense, as the skeleton, just like the human bones, could break if forced into an excessive angle, or a wrong direction.
Below are the recommended move range limitations for our sex dolls:
2.1. Neck & Head:
The head is connected to your doll’s body with metal connectors and can turn right and left. It can also bend sideways, up and down.
Head-bowing forward or backward should not exceed 45 degrees. Head-swaying right or left should not go beyond 45 degrees.
2.2. Shoulders & Upper arms:
Upper arms can be raised forward as high as chest level, (60 degrees) forward. They can bend slightly backward (5-10 degrees). Upper arms can be raised to both sides horizontally as high as chest level, (60 degrees) for both directions. When being folded to the inside (chest-hugging), avoid exceeding a 15 degrees angle.
2.3. Lower Arms & Wrists
Silicone or TPE dolls’ lower arms can rotate in one direction for 90 degrees. The lower arms cannot bend or rotate in the other directions (just like on a real skeleton).
The doll’s wrists can bend up and down up to 45 a degrees angle. Lower arms can rotate with a 60 degree limit.
2.4. Hips & Waist
TPE or silicone dolls waist can bend left and right horizontally, as well as upward and backward.
Avoid exceeding a 30 degrees angle, and do not leave your doll in a curbed position for too long, which could leave creases on her belly.
Waist bending forward and backward (waist bending and chest thrusting out) are limited to 40 degrees. When the body rotates right and left (waist twisting), avoid exceeding a 40 degrees angle.
When the waist is being bent and rotated simultaneously, the angle limits for all directions is to be reduced to a maximum of 20 degrees.
2.5. Thighs & Calves
Thighs of silicone and TPE sex dolls can spread both sides to a 130 degrees angle maximum. For single leg splitting, the leg can be opened up to a 100 degrees angle. Watch out not to exercise too much stretch on the crotch area while spreading the legs of your sex doll.
Do not open the doll’s thighs too wide which could apply excessive stretching to the area which could potentially damage your doll over extended periods of time.
We recommend a range in between 50 degrees and 80 degrees angle at most for both legs.
2.6. Knees & Ankles
The lower legs of your doll can bend backward to a 120 degrees angle max. The recommended maximum angle is 100 degrees. Your doll’s ankles can also rotate up and down 45 degrees both ways.
2.7. JOINTS MAINTENANCE
Do not leave your TPE or silicone doll’s joints in a bending position for an excessive amount of time. As a result, creases and wrinkles could appear on her skin, due to the improper posture.
Whenever a position bends her skin too much and that you see a crease, keep in mind to change her pose prior to storing your sex doll.
For example, if you place your doll sitting in the chair for a long time, there could be horizontal creases on her abdomen.
Keeping your doll in a straight posture with hands alongside the body will reduce stress on joint areas’ skin, you can use our suspension kit (available as free extra gift for any WM, YL, OR, SE Doll model purchased) and compatible with all of our dolls.
The perfect position to store your doll is the one she arrives in, when packed in her box (with legs slightly spread). You can read more about how to store your doll here.
If your doll skin has wrinkles, lay her down for few days. The creases and wrinkles will decrease and disappear. Additionally you can apply a warm towel for the TPE to get back to its initial shape.
WHAT TO AVOID
• Storing your doll for excessive periods of time in a different pose than the one she is initially stored into.
• Keeping your doll sitting or lying down on a hard surface for too long (both TPE and silicone are resilient materials, and it will flatten her butt over the long run).
• Putting your doll’s weight onto her knees or elbows or wrists on hard surfaces (use a pillow or something soft underneath)
• Storing your doll standing up (unless suspended) or leaving her standing up without support or supervision
• For heavier models, or if you have selected the standard skeleton (with gooseneck), and wish to suspend her, do not put all of the weight onto her neck (which could potentially damage it over the long run). Leave some support underneath her feet to distribute the weight more evenly.
• Wear clothing with parts that could potentially damage your doll skin when carrying her (such as zip on jackets, metal buttons or spikes, etc…)
3. CARRYING YOUR SILICONE OR TPE DOLL
Depending on their height and body mass, silicone and TPE sex dolls can range between 15kg to up to 65kg (33-143lbs). If you have back problem, you should be very careful during the handling and carrying process.
3.1. HOW TO REMOVE YOUR DOLL FROM HER BOX
Once you have successfully open your doll cardboard box, do as follow:
STEP 1: Prepare your path as well as the location where you will put your doll down. Could be a chair, a sofa, a bed. Make sure that the area that she will be sitting on is clean and neat. You can use the blanket included with your doll to put underneath as a protection.
STEP 2: Lift both of your dolls arms up to the air just like a zombie waking up of its coffin. Keep both hands and feet protection on
STEP 3: Place your hand underneath your doll’s ankle and gently lift both legs straight upward one by one. Your doll should now have both arms and legs pointing towards the ceiling.
STEP 4: Bring both calves downward so that each leg forms a 45° angle. Your doll is now in the optimal position to be picked up off of her box. See below how to do so the safest and most effortless way.
3.2. HOW TO LIFT YOUR SEX DOLL UP
First of all, make sure to remove the head from the body before carrying your doll around. By doing so, you will remove a few pounds to the overall weight. Your doll is also easier to carry without the head on.
Be careful when carrying your doll, with the fingers which could easily compress onto your or her chest without you noticing during the effort. Additionally, it is a good practice to wrap up her hands with a protective sheet in case she would hit against something during transportation.
Make sure that your silicone or TPE doll wears shoes, or any other type of protection for her feet. Feet can be quite easily damaged during manipulation and handling of your doll, especially the feet with the standup option.
3.3. HOW TO POSITION YOUR SEX DOLL PRIOR TO LIFTING
Try to picture and visualize how you would carry an adult female person if you had to. In what position should that person ideally be to ease your work?
STEP 1 – Put your doll in a fetal position, with her abdomen bended, her legs lifted up, her inner legs bended to a 45 degrees angle. Remove the head from the body.
STEP 2 – When you are ready to pick her up, simply squat down as close to the doll as possible, bending at the hips and knees with your buttocks out. If your doll is extremely heavy, you may want to put one knee to the floor and your other knee in front of you bent at a right angle. Inhale and make sure to keep your back straight.
STEP 3 – As you begin your lift upward, make sure to keep good posture. Do so by looking straight ahead, keeping your back straight, your chest out, and your shoulders back.
Having poor posture can lead to not only back pain, but migraines, lower energy levels, and even heart problems. This form will help keep your upper back straight while having a slight arch in your lower back at the same time.
If you believe you have bad posture, try wearing a posture brace to help your back and abdomen muscles during the lift.
WARNING: DO NOT LIFT YOUR DOLL WHILE BENDING FORWARD
Slowly lift your doll by straightening your hips and knees (not your back). Extend your legs and breathe out as you lift. Do not twist your body or bend forward as you lift the heavy object.
WARNING: NEVER LIFT HEAVY OBJECTS ABOVE SHOULDERS LEVEL
Hold the doll as close to your body as possible, at the level of your belly button (power zone). Never lift the doll above your shoulders or with your arms extended outward.
WARNING: USE YOUR FEET TO CHANGE DIRECTION
Use your feet (not your body) to change direction, taking slow, small steps. Lead with your hips as you change direction. Keep your shoulders in line with your hips as you move.
3.4. HOW TO SET A SEX DOLL DOWN
Set down your doll carefully, squatting with your knees and hips only.
To avoid injury, you should always lift in the power zone. The power zone for lifting is close to the body, between mid-thigh and mid-chest height.
This zone is ideal for lifting. This is because it is where the arms and back can lift the most, with the least amount of effort. The power zone, also known as the “comfort zone”, minimizes excessive reach and ensures a neutral position during heavy lifts.
Lifting in the power zone reduces the risk of injury, while also allowing for more efficient and pain-free lifting.
3.5. DO’S & DON’TS FOR LIFTING SILICONE & DOLLS
DO’S DONT’S Test the weight of the doll Hold your breath Plan and Clear your path Bend or twist your waist Get help for heavy loads Use a partial grip Keep objects in the Power Zone Obstruct your view when walking Use a wide stance for balance Jerk or lift quicky Use your legs to lift Pinch your fingers or toes Pivot your feet to avoid twisting Pull a load if you cannot push it
4. SUM UP
Pairing these techniques with an heavy lifting back brace will allow for the safest, most efficient heavy lifts. The compression of a back brace belt allows for more stability in your abdomen and lower back.
This increase in stability will allow your lower back to carry more weight and prevent injuries as well. Finally we recommend the help of a friend, or a wheelchair to carry your silicone or TPE doll around without effort.
