SEX DOLL MARKET – BEWARE OF MISLEADING PRACTICES

TPE DOLL INDUSTRY: 1ST DISTRIBUTION LAYER - TPE DOLL MANUFACTURERS

Thanks to the democratisation of sex dolls, the number is of TPE Doll manufacturers is growing quickly. The TPE Doll industry currently counts around 30 sex dolls factories.

Most sex dolls manufacturers are based in China (including scams and copies). Most of these TPE Doll factories are located in remote Chinese areas.

Similarly to most industries, these sex doll factories only sell directly to TPE Doll distributors. These companies only focus on manufacturing, and do not do retail sale.

TPE DOLL INDUSTRY: 2ND DISTRIBUTION LAYER - TPE DOLL DISTRIBUTORS

TPE Doll industry is growing and so is the number of sex doll distributors. So far there is around a dozen of 1st level TPE Doll distributors.

1st level distributors, or what our competitors like to call “authorized resellers” are companies working directly with the TPE Doll manufacturers, just like Fine Love Dolls.

Most of these TPE Doll distributors are based in China, operating in strong ties with production on spot, in Chinese.


WHY ARE FINE LOVE DOLLS PRICES LOWER?

Just like any distributors in any industry, thanks to our monthly volumes we can guarantee lower prices.

This is especially true in comparison to 2nd level distributors.

So what is the difference between Fine Love Dolls and other TPE Doll distributors? Fine Love Dolls only has 1 website and focuses on B2C retail. We are the direct link you will not find elsewhere to the manufacturer.

Other distributors mostly sell to 2nd level distributors and to TPE Doll vendors, and do not do direct retail. This is not only true in the TPE Doll industry, but also in most industries as well.

We ship our sex dolls straight from the factory, once freshly manufactured. Your order is not used for photo shooting purposes in between transit.

In the TPE Doll industry, most other 1st level TPE Doll distributors do B2B wholesale. These distributors develop affiliate networks of 2st level TPE Doll vendors.

SEX DOLL MARKET: SPECIALIZED SEX DOLL FORUMS

The sex doll market counts 3 main specialized forums about sex dolls. The 1st one is TDF also known as The Doll Forum.

The 2nd sex doll forum is ODC also known as Our Doll Community is slightly smaller, but just as great when it comes to information regarding sex dolls.

Last but not least Dollsbook, which is the social network for dolls kind. This website has a very welcoming community and is packed with awesome Facebook-like features (friendship requests, walls, albums, forums, groups, chat system, etc…).

You can additionally find most information you need about TPE Dolls on our sex doll forums. Always feel free to reply to any topic related to TPE Doll industry!


WHY IS FINE LOVE DOLLS NOT ON LISTED ON THE DOLL FORUM

This is an old story starting back in 2017. When Fine Love Dolls was created in March 2017, and that there were only a handful of vendors. You can read more about it on this thread.

TDF used to be a small network of reselling vendors all purchasing from the same agent, with lobbyistic practices when it came to new vendors on the market, competing with their reselling network of affiliate partners.

The industry has since then grown so big, with 3 scammers for every legit vendor. TDF has since then evolved into having less conflict of interest, a more objective approach, and an attitude closer to what an industry authority should have. It is a great source of information when it comes to sex dolls in general.

Although Fine Love Dolls is yet to get in better terms with their management team, you can trust them as a reliable source of information when it comes to information about sex dolls.

As being the largest community, a lot of “TDF Verified” vendors are also very active there, and will do anything to trick you into buying from them. You should make your own opinion on which vendor you decide to buy from, after making sure it is a legitimate one selling authentic sex dolls of course.

TPE DOLL INDUSTRY: 3RD DISTRIBUTION LAYER: 2ND LEVEL TPE DOLL VENDORS

This is latest distribution layer(s). These resellers represent 95% of the sex doll websites online, and are part of the reselling network built by the 1st layer distributors mentioned above. We do not recommend that you buy from these TPE Doll vendors. The high number of intermediaries make the risk of mistake or misunderstanding higher.

NO LEGAL PROTECTION

Usually these TPE Doll vendors operate from countries outside China. This consequently means that there are probably no legal recourse against a TPE Doll manufacturer, or any way to protect the consumer.

HOW TO SPOT SEX DOLL SCAMS: THE QUICK WAY

A lot of fake TPE Doll resellers use real pictures to sell counterfeit products.

The best way to make sure that you are buying a sex doll from legit TPE doll vendors is to ask for factory pictures of a given combination of your choice. (head + body)

If it is a fake sex doll reseller, he will simply not be able to provide the combination you have asked him.

AVOID B2B MARKETPLACES

Alibaba, eBay, Amazon, all of these marketplaces are home to absolutely ALL doll scammers. You will not find the factories there either.

We therefore strongly recommend to avoid these fake merchants at all cost. This is because you will end up with a bad TPE doll instead…

DO NOT ALWAYS LOOK FOR THE CHEAPEST OR YOU MIGHT REGRET IT

Fine Love Dolls is a small company, with reasonably low margin. Web development, logistics, marketing, etc…our teams manage everything in-house.

We also keep operating costs as low as they can get. If you find a TPE Doll vendor cheaper from us by several hundreds of dollars, this can consequently only be a scam. If it is too good to be true, it usually is.

A lot of TPE Doll vendors uses real TPE Doll pictures to sell fake sex dolls copies at prices that do not even cover production cost + shipping. Beware of sex doll scams because there are a lot of testimonials in that regards.

BEWARE OF

  • Sex doll shops without “HTTPS” in the URL -> no SSL certificate, your data are therefore not secured on these websites (You should see a green lock icon in the URL search bar)
  • Love doll shops pretending to be the manufacturer, or the factory. If these sex dolls vendors fool you once, they will fool you twice.
  • TPE doll vendors making you pay extra for options, such as the new skeleton. This is a greedy way to take your money.
  • Sex doll resellers you have never heard of before on doll forums. These vendors are probably fake also.

I GOT A COPY FOR CHEAPER, SO?

fake TPE Doll vendors use counterfeit production and poor quality TPE. With a copy of a mould you can also copy a doll, you can even copy her so well that an unexperienced buyer might not even be able to tell the difference at first.

The difference is in the overall quality. The TPE blend, the skeleton, the details. These fake dolls will break within a few weeks/months. The TPE will start the crackle and tear open, the skeleton joints of your sex doll will also break.

As we are not sure what these fake blends are made of, we strongly recommend you not to use them. These chemicals could also potentially be harmful to your health.

This is because of the polymers and other chemicals that have potentially been used during the manufacturing process.

TPE DOLL INDUSTRY: FAKE REVIEW WEBSITES

“WHAT IS REALSEXDOLLSREVIEWS AND WHY ARE THEY REVIEWING US?”

The below website applied to become one of our affiliates, which we refused for a legitimate reason: They are a fraud. You can also read more on TDF about it here.

Be careful of fake review websites such as REAL SEX DOLLS REVIEWS. This scam website mislead visitors with fake information. A lot of people have already been scammed by them:

Below is what can be found on their homepage:


“UPDATE! Ready to SAVE Some Money on Sex Dolls?

We have found three companies in China that sell the exact same sex dolls, except it’s directly from the manufacturer! The sex dolls that are sold for $2,000 are available for $500! We placed a few orders and have found them to be legit! These are the same, exact dolls, without the American middle-man jacking up the price! The best part is, the shipping time is the same (about two weeks) because it uses Ali Express for shipping! The best, best, best part? You actually have a REAL return policy and buyer protection since it’s Ali Express! If you don’t like what you’ve received, you can and will get all your money back – directly from Ali Express! These American companies do NOT offer this, as they assume you have used the doll for… well… you know!”


  1. Aliexpress has a strict policy on adult products. In most cases you will not get a refund. In 100% of cases you will get a fake doll. Look for testimonials on doll forums which are numerous
  2. There is no such thing as a $500 TPE Doll. Once you understand that this price does not even cover shipping + production cost, it will be easier for you to identify who is legit and who is not.

We can only warn you here and strongly recommend that you do not go for this option. In fact, most of the buyers that had ended up buying an authentic brand afterwards. Why? Because these counterfeit dolls will not last more than a few weeks.

Remember…cheap always cost more on the long run. In this industry, it is all a matter of TPE blend quality.
