After long hours of searching, you finally found the perfect sex doll. She has a pretty face, sexy body, and you can’t wait to own her. There’s just one problem: You never heard of the website and don’t know if you’re getting scammed or not. Are they legit?

Did you know that 90% of real doll websites sell counterfeit/imitation products? Read this article to find out signs of scams and how to tell whether a website is legitimate or not.

  1. Do Not Buy From Aliexpress/Alibaba, Ebay, or Amazon

Top sex doll brands DO NOT sell on marketplace websites such as Aliexpress, DHgate, Ebay, or Amazon. You won’t find authentic, name-brand dolls on any of these websites. They are free-for-all marketplaces where people can sell anything, and 99% of the time, the dolls there are cheap, knockoff dolls using stolen photos.

  1. Check For Legitimate Prices

Price is a good indicator of whether a website is trustworthy or not. Sex dolls under $1000 are obvious signs of a scam. The price may be appealing, but no authentic sex doll sells for that cheap (unless it’s a mini-doll). Name-brand TPE sex dolls usually sell for around $1500-$2000+ (depending on the brand and size) and silicone sex dolls usually sell for around $2000-$5000+.

Silicone Lovers is a TDF-approved vendor we trust and their site gives a good sense of how much sex dolls should cost. Their prices are fairly low already so any sites with prices lower than Silicone Lovers comes off as sketchy. SexDolls-Shop is also a great, trusted site to compare prices.

  1. They Show Brand Names

Most high quality sex dolls have a brand, such as WM Doll, 6YE, Piper Doll, JY Doll, etc. These brands are popular and well-known so there’s no reason for a legit vendor to hide them. Websites that don’t clearly display the brand name are usually selling knockoff, generic, or unbranded dolls (with stolen photos). If a website lists themselves as the brand when the photos clearly belong to another brand, then that is a clear indication of counterfeit or knockoff dolls.

  1. Good English/Grammar

This only applies to sex doll stores in English. Usually the English and grammar can be an indication of whether a website is trustworthy. There’s nothing wrong with a few typos but continuous bad English and grammar usually gives off a red flag. Many Chinese manufacturers and knockoff doll sellers create websites in English to sell to the West, and their poor English makes it obvious. It’s best to avoid websites with badly written English and grammar.

  1. Fast and Good Customer Service

Before buying from a website, always contact their customer support first, preferably through email. Most websites have live chat, but they may not always be online. Ask them many questions through email and see how quickly and well they respond. It’s also great if they have a phone number, and you can try calling them. If they reply fast, answer all your questions with good English/grammar, and are professional and polite, that is a good sign they can be trusted.

Other Tips

Here are some additional common red flags to look out for:

  • Height Options: If the customization options have height options, that is usually an indicator of knockoff dolls. Some legit sites might have this but different heights have different proportions so it is misleading.
  • Height Specification Tables in the Description: If you see a table in the description showing the specifications of various different heights (usually comparing 6 or 8 different heights), that website is most likely an Aliexpress/Alibaba seller.
  • Fake Reviews: Most customers don’t leave reviews. If there’s an unusually high amounts of reviews (like 10+ on several dolls), then the reviews are probably fake. Fake reviews usually consist of short reviews without much details, female reviewer names (from name generators), reviewers from many different countries, or reviewer names like A***n (which are usually imported reviews from Aliexpress).
  • Incorrect Customization Options: Every brand has their own set of customization options. If a website uses the same or wrong customization options for various brands, then they probably sell knockoff dolls.
  • Keyword-Filled Doll Names: Websites that name their dolls with a ton of keywords like “160cm Real TPE Sexy Big Breast Silicone Sex Doll” are usually Aliexpress or Chinese marketplace sellers.
  • Low, Low Prices: Again, I want to emphasize (because people still keep asking) that websites where most dolls are under $1000 are knockoff doll sites. The only authentic dolls under $1000 are Kimber Doll and mini dolls. Full-sized dolls under $1000 are almost always knockoff/counterfeit dolls using stolen photos. There’s no such thing as a huge sale that drops a doll’s price by more than half.
  • Weird Domain Names: While it’s not always true, many websites with weird domain names are Chinese counterfeit doll sellers. Domain names that don’t make sense (like sexdollon), have a bunch of random letters put together (like ldoex), or a bunch of keywords thrown together (like real doll shop, although this isn’t always true because some legit stores are named like this) are usually already signs whether a website is legit or not.
  • Stolen Content: Many knockoff doll sellers and scammers steal content from other websites. If a website clearly has bad English, yet their doll descriptions are written in perfect English, then it was probably stolen/copy-and-pasted from another website. You can copy-and-paste some sentences into Google to find out if it was stolen. I noticed that a lot of doll descriptions and About Us sections are copy-and-pasted.
  • Fake Sales Tactics: Don’t buy from websites that use plugins that say “x sold in the last 24 hours,””x people are watching this item,” unnecessary countdown timers, etc. Those are fake, deceptive, and unprofessional.
