The History of Sex Dolls: How They Have Evolved Over Time

Sex dolls have been around for centuries, but they have evolved significantly over time. From simple dolls made of cloth and straw to highly advanced, lifelike dolls made from silicone and TPE materials, sex dolls have come a long way in terms of design and functionality. In this article, we will explore the history of sex dolls and how they have evolved over time.

Early History

The earliest known sex dolls date back to the 17th century, where they were used by sailors on long voyages to fulfill their sexual desires. These dolls were often made of cloth or leather and stuffed with straw or sawdust. Some even had removable genitals to allow for cleaning and maintenance.

In the 19th century, French courtesans used "dame de voyage" dolls for sexual pleasure when their clients were away. These dolls were made from wax or porcelain and were often elaborately dressed and decorated.

20th Century

The early 20th century saw the rise of inflatable sex dolls, which were made from rubber and could be inflated to a lifelike size and shape. These dolls were popular among soldiers during World War II, who used them for sexual pleasure and companionship.

In the 1950s, the first silicone sex dolls were introduced, providing a more realistic and lifelike experience. These dolls were expensive and primarily marketed to the wealthy.

In the 1970s, the introduction of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) materials allowed for more affordable and realistic sex dolls to be produced. These dolls were still relatively expensive, but they became more widely available.

Modern Era

The development of technology has led to the creation of highly advanced sex dolls with features such as self-lubricating and heating systems, realistic skin textures, and even artificial intelligence. These dolls are made with high-quality silicone and TPE materials, allowing for a more realistic and lifelike experience.

The sex doll industry has also seen a significant increase in customization options, allowing customers to tailor the doll to their preferences in terms of body type, hair color, and other features.


Sex dolls have a long and fascinating history, evolving from simple cloth and straw dolls to highly advanced, lifelike dolls made from silicone and TPE materials.
