Why Sex Dolls Can Benefit Your Relationship

People enjoy science fiction that describes a world where humans and robots live together. Many of these movies, such as AI and I, Robot, depict humans intermingling with robotic humanoids. Thus, it’s not so shocking to learn there are a few less-obvious reasons why people turn to lifelike and youthful-appearing teen sex doll companions. Aside from what their primary purpose might appear to be — fulfilling certain sexual desires — they may even help us deal with our issues. Whether you are in a long-term situation or you just recently started dating, there are ways these robotic dolls can benefit your relationship.

Get your feelings out

First of all, despite being called a “sex doll,” these silicone-based human stand-ins have other uses. They can also, in a sense, become a friend who listens pliantly as you get your feelings out. Every relationship has its ups and downs: Arguments, bickering and even serious disagreements are normal. You may be inclined to call up a relative or friend to talk it out. But sometimes that can make things worse and cause or exacerbate rifts among all involved. Now consider that these animatronic dolls are designed to be extremely lifelike, with real-looking skin and facial features. Some companies, such as California Dolls, make their dolls respond to touch or casual conversational topics. This gives you the illusion of someone being there, letting you talk out your feelings with zero potential consequences. 

Intimacy issues

There are various reasons sex dolls are utilized in relationships usually all based around the same thing: a partner’s lack of interest in sex. This can be caused by exhaustion, pain, or a declining sex drive. A partner may have experienced sexual trauma, and the topic of intimacy can trigger a negative response. Sometimes after a couple has a child, there can be a loss of interest in sex, either due to pain in the sex-organ area during a new mother’s recovery, or even just the new baby killing the mood. Whether it is for you or your partner, a doll can help keep the desire between you, by becoming a sex surrogate. This can help eliminate negative feelings and resentment. 

You may simply need some time away from your partner but still want some form of intimate satisfaction. Perhaps you and your lover are simply far away from each other. During any type of intimacy drought, this type of doll has the potential to reduce the chances of a wandering eye. 


Sexual curiosity may be hard to discuss with your significant other, whether you’re a newer, more playful couple or one that’s set in your routine ways. Your partner may have different sexual tastes than you, which could cause issues. Especially for those who have sexual phobias, to start out, you and your partner can show each other where you like to be touched on the doll. 

You and your partner may enjoy reading erotic books or watching sexually explicit movies together and find some of the situations intriguing. Having a sex doll to try different positions with can help you minimize any mood-killing awkwardness later. 

Suggesting alternative amorous lifestyles, such as bringing in one or more new sexual partners, may not be well-received due to any number of risky factors. A sex doll can be used to simulate another human during intercourse without the physical and emotional complexities of having a real person involved. You don’t have to worry about anyone getting hurt or jealous. This can also lead to a couple letting go of any inhibitions, if that is a shared goal. For example, a sex doll can be utilized as a bondage partner without any real bodily harm.

Sex dolls, especially sophisticated, lifelike ones, can help couples vent their frustrations as well as practice and develop common sexual desires and behaviors, thus releasing tension and stress and bolstering communication.
