    Hi Steven

    I would first like to thank you for all off the advice and great tips your give on this site. You have help so much. Second I am a first time buyer of a doll and after reading everything you posted and answering a lot of my question ( thank you) Went and bought one from ainidoll.com. As you have said before they are selling counterfeit dolls. But I would say going into it and knowing I was not going to get top quality, I was not disappointed. Again im a first time buyer so it would be like comparing a ford hybrid and then buying a Ferrari. But again was not disappointed for the money i spent

    My real question is care. Is it ok to give her a bath/shower and what can i use on her as far as cleaning. Is their any cleaning stuff i should not use and any you would recomend?

      Hi Steve,
      I’m glad you are enjoying your doll. SiliconeLovers has a good in-depth care guide here: https://siliconelovers.com/pages/help-information-how-to-clean-a-sex-doll-guide
      I’ll just note it’s not completely necessary to shower/bathe the doll. If you do, make sure not to get any water in the neck or feet (if you have standing feet). That can cause serious problems. Diluted soapy water and a cloth should be good enough for cleaning. Avoid harsh chemicals, like bleach, dish soap, or alcohol. The guide I linked has a lot more detail.

        Hi Steven,

        Thank you for sharing so much information here. I have a related question. What kind of dye do I need if I wanted to add spots on my doll like a trill from star trek or make the nipple darker?

        Thank you for your time and consideration.

        Btw, I also got a 100cm doll from ainidoll two weeks ago. I agreed with what Steve said. When I paid less, I didn’t expect to get a fancy WM or Ferrari. I am an average guy driving Nisan anyway. I am happy.

          Hi Leo,
          Any women’s makeup powder should work. Lots of useful makeup info here: https://dollforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=112347
          Some people use a permanent marker to create freckles, blemishes, etc. on their dolls. If you plan to do that, be very careful because it can bleed out and is hard to remove.

          1. Leo

            Thank you so much, Steven. Very helpful thread. I am more interested in a permanent solution.

            Do you mean maker or marker? Do you happen to have any recommendations? I asked the store support about it, they said the factory is using some kind of penetrating stain. I am not sure if I can buy something similar at home depot and not sure if it’s safe for the TPE skins either.

            1. Steven

              Hi Leo,
              Sorry about the typo. I meant marker. Because TPE is a porous material, the makeup will always fade no matter what. Unfortunately, I don’t know what specific makeup factories use. Piper Doll told me they use regular women’s makeup powder in the past, but wouldn’t give me more details. Permanent marker will last longer, just be careful about the bleeding and smearing. Maybe you can find more info on Dollforum (for example, google “dollforum makeup”). I’m not really an expert on makeup.

            Thank you, Steven.

            I will do some research and maybe let you know later.

    Hello Steven,
    First of all, thank you so much for posting all the valuable information about dolls and vendors on your website.
    I have something to talk / ask about the vendor Silicone Lover (SL) which is one of the trusted vendors you recommended.
    After I read the good reviews of SL on your website, I have purchased Piper doll 160cm Akira from SL recently for about $3,000 USD
    While I was surfing on the web, I found that Doll-to-China and one more vendor were selling the same doll at $2,500 USD.
    I sent an email to SL to ask about the price just because I was worried about the quality, not because I wanted a discount.
    They answered the price is higher because of the shipping costs, and said the vendors selling at a lower price would lose their profit. They also said they pay Piper doll more because they communicate with Piper doll directly not like other vendors who normally communicate with Doll-forever.
    A week later, they started giving 20% discount on the dolls, and now the price of the same doll is $2,500 USD on the SL website too. Actually they raised its price to adjust it to $2,500 USD with the 20% discount.
    I still think SL tries to provide good service, but I feel like I was ripped off in a way.
    I know what merchants do, but what I hate the most is their manipulative lies.
    I know it is my fault that I trusted SL would be more sincere than other vendors like Doll-to-China.
    What do you think? I’d love to have your take on this.

      Hi Rusty,
      Sorry to hear about your experience. SL always has a discount running. Usually it is 15% off. It is 20% off now as a Black Friday deal. Did you use their 15% off when you purchased Akira? It should have lowered her under $3000. If your doll hasn’t shipped yet, contact SL and ask for a price adjustment because you didn’t use the discount before. I know they do this for a lot of their customers. See if you can get the 20% off that they have right now. Don’t be afraid to contact vendors especially after an expensive purchase like this. SL usually has the same or lower prices than other vendors once you factor in their LOVE discount code. Let me know how it turns out.

      1. Rusty

        Piper doll 160cm Akira was one of the dolls that were not on 15% off when I purchased it by the end of Oct, 2020. My doll is in the process of being shipped out at the moment I believe because I confirmed it after I had received factory pictures a couple of days ago. Anyway I will send them an email again to ask for 20% off then as you advised. I will let you know how they respond to it. Thank you.

          My wife and I are looking for a doll at a reasonable price something below $1000 hopefully with a moaning noise as a possible feature and a penis attachment too for her cause she is into girls to

          1. Steven

            Hi Donovan,
            Unfortunately, it is difficult to find quality dolls under $1000. You can take a look at KimberDoll, which is a decent quality doll for $500. I don’t think they have a penis attachment though. As for moaning noise, the ones that come with dolls are very bad. It’s better to play porn from a phone/speaker next to the doll’s head than to get the moaning addon. I don’t know any other quality dolls under $1000 except for mini dolls and knockoff dolls. AF Doll is a good, cheaper brand but is still over $1000.

          Silicone Lovers is not a good vendor, despite all that you can read. I highly suspect they create tons of false profiles everywhere to promote their own websites. They are just full of shit and your experience with them shows it. I still wonder why reviewers are recommending them. Not good.

          1. Steven

            Hi Erik,
            Can you share your negative experience with SiliconeLovers? I had a very good experience with them a year ago when they were smaller and had faster customer service. I still hear that they are a very good vendor. I’m interested in hearing what problems you experienced with them.

        Hello Steven,
        Happy New Year!!
        SL has been ignoring my request of a 20% discount for a while, and then finally refused it after my 3rd email.
        I simply politely asked for it by the way.
        I still think SL is a pretty decent vendor, but I don’t think I would buy anything from them again.
        I am considering purchasing a Gynoid doll some time later.
        The prices of dolls on SL are $500 to $1,000 higher than a vendor like Doll-to China.
        I don’t like the idea of using the name of a particular country as their business name, but I would recommend anyone should at least compare the prices of a doll of their choice between vendors before making the final decision.
        These vendors are all making profits merely by taking orders from customers and responding to their questions and requests unless deals are made locally. They haven’t even seen and handled the product that you ordered physically. They are not the one who does the packaging, and they all claim that they are the one who has the best relationship with the manufacturer.
        Well, I have other things to talk about this vendor, but I’ll save them.
        In a nut shell, SL is a still decent vendor, but you should compare their prices before you make the final decision.
        Do not trust anything they say about the best relationship with the manufacturers. It will take the same amount of time as it would take for other vendors to receive responses from those manufacturers.

          Hi Rusty,
          Happy new year. Sorry to hear that. I was hoping they would do a price adjustment, but I forgot they changed their discount system a while ago. They replaced the 20% off code with an automatic price cut, which doesn’t require a code anymore. I know SL would have done it in the past, but I spoke with them recently and they have become stricter due to increased taxes and operating costs. Dollto-China is a good Chinese vendor. They are named that because they used to be part of the Dollto vendor but later separated into their own company. As for prices, vendors ultimately choose the price to list the dolls at. Some want more profit and some want less, but it is also dependent on other factors such as operating costs, taxes, employees, etc. Chinese vendors and smaller websites tend to have less operating costs and want more sales, so they can sell the same dolls for less compared to more established, Western vendors. Good vendor-manufacturer relationships can play a role (for example, big vendors have more leverage/power which can lead to better quality control) but it’s usually not a big factor and the customer service is more important. I hope you still enjoy your doll. This feedback is very useful for me in assessing the different vendors I promote. I wish you the best.
