Why Do Men Like Sex Dolls?

Dispelling a Myth

In Western society, we have some very Puritanical ideas about sex, and our thoughts about sex dolls are no exception. We look at them as something to be ashamed of enjoying, as though we are doing something wrong by having them. I say “we” because while men are the majority of enjoyers of sex dolls, they are not alone. Women enjoy sex dolls as well. However, today we are going to be discussing men’s enjoyment of dolls like the very aptly named Venus.

Despite the myths, the men who enjoy sex dolls are as normal as men who do not. Studies[i] have shown that men who enjoy sex dolls show the same general satisfaction with life as men who do not. They are also do not show any more propensity for depression or anti-social behaviors than non-sex-doll enjoying men.

 

Why Do Men Like Sex Dolls?

Men enjoy sex dolls for a variety of reasons, but three tend to be the most common.

 

Artistic Enjoyment

For some men, the enjoyment of a sex doll is more than just having the pleasurable holes. The sex doll is art.

Before you scoff, consider statues like the Venus in the art world. These statues were images created by artists to present the ideal woman – a goddess. While we have stepped away (for the most part) from the veneration of Venus and Aphrodite, we still have an appreciation of the female form. This appreciation is displayed perfected in the sex doll, where our favorite feminine qualities are idealized. The sex doll also allows us to interact with the art that has been created.

 

iDollatry

Men who are very into sex dolls have dubbed themselves iDollators. For iDollators, the sex doll is preferred to real women because real women can be “difficult.” For iDollators, the sex doll will not betray them or make demands of them. She is not finicky or difficult to figure out. She simply is what she is. For many men, even those that prefer real women when available, these reasons still come up from time to time. It could follow a bad break up, a dry spell in dating or just frustration in general. The sex doll is an escape and a release.

 

Fantasy Fulfillment

Not all forms of escape come from negative experiences. Sometimes, we enjoy fantasies just for the sake of the fantasy itself. Sex dolls are a wonderful way to explore fantasies that a human partner may not be willing or able to fulfill. These fantasies are as varied as the men who have them. The sex dolls are ideal because they are customizable, so their appearance can be changed to suit the desired fantasy.

The type of fantasy a man wants is not the only reason a sex doll may be preferred to a real partner. Sometimes a partner may not be receptive to fantasies, leading to arguments and even shaming. Men who have experienced this or have been warned about this by others who share their fantasies may prefer a sex doll to a human partner, to avoid the stress. A sex doll is not just up for any fantasy; she is also a partner who will not judge.

 

Couples’ Fantasies

Sometimes couples will make use of sex dolls as well. Sometimes a wife may purchase a sex doll for her husband to enjoy his solo fantasies, especially if she does not share his fantasies. It is also not uncommon for a sex doll to be purchased as a surrogate partner if one or the other is unable, for health reasons, to enjoy sexual intimacy. Sex dolls like Megan are widely customizable, so that she can be created to match a partner as closely as possible.

A realistic sex doll is also a way for couples to enjoy a threesome fantasy. The sex doll can be an ideal partner because the couple does not have to worry about jealousy or emotional entanglements. She can also be ideal if they have had, problems finding a third partner who is compatible with their interests and goals in the relationship.
