Title: New to the forum and looking to make my first purchase
Post by: CMiles76 on February 18, 2019, 01:29:43 AM
Greetings everyone. I'm new to the forum and have been browsing around the community to see what others had to say about the ups and downs of getting a doll. After some careful consideration, I've decided that I'd like to purchase my first doll in the near future.  I wanted to ask the community if anyone out there has ordered from or had any insight into the company YourDoll.  I have sort of settled on purchasing this particular doll: https://www.yourdoll.com/product/sex-doll-wmd014/ and I obviously would like this to be a pleasant experience. I hope someone can let me know if the YourDoll company is legit or point me in the right direction.  Thanks for listening and I look forward to learning more as I spend time here.

Welcome CMiles76! I purchased from Your Doll a few years ago and everything was fine. She's still holding up without any issues, but in my dollhouse she doesn't get a lot of attention so I can't really testify to her longevity.

I do like the model you are looking at. Nice taste!  :thumb:  I've been watching that one as well, thinking about another purchase.

I would recommend as much research as possible so you can be happy & confident once you do pull the trigger. One thing I go back and forth on is the insert. I am NOT a fan of the Your Doll type of insert, but I also do not like the fixed style because the insert style is way easier to clean.  :-\

Happy shopping & good luck with your first purchase!

I don't know much about Your Doll, but that body looks like a WM Doll. I have bought 2 dolls from Unique Dolls and had a good experience with both the dolls and the purchase.

You can email Annie from the Unique Dolls section in TPE Town here; http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=6442.0

Here is the doll that you are looking at; https://www.unique-dolls.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=40_33_83&products_id=1053&zenid=8fjkt9tr3iepltj88408tppib1

Thanks for the feedback! 

@Poly What is it about the YourDoll insert that you don't like? I was considering getting the insert (for ease of cleaning like you mentioned). I've read that the inserts have an extremely tight fit in the doll to prevent slippage. Is there something about the YourDoll insert that makes it a poor choice?

@Incred Thanks for the link. I definitely want to do as much research as I can before I dish out that much cash!

That Doll is 96 lbs...

As luscious as she is, she is a bit on the hefty side for a Doll.

Other than that.  :whistle:

Welcome Aboard !  ;D

Yeah that is definitely a lot to move around, but I'll have to soldier on lol.

I'll leave it to the more experienced TPE folks around here to comment on the insert.  :whistle:

I have had different TPEs over the years, but I don't typically use them for that function (partly because I don't like the TPE insert styles and I have other dolls that are much more to my liking). Right now, for TPE, I just have the 1 Your Doll and 2 SYs but I've had some cheapo TPEs from eBay in the past as well. My dislike is not a matter of anything specific to the Your Doll insert style. Maybe there's some mysterious and magical way to make them work well, but I've never found it.

Different strokes and all that. Everybody is going to have their preference and you'll know what's right for your situation. Good luck with your decision!  :thumb:

She's a lot of weight.

I sell Jinsan.  That's a WM.

That's a lot of weight.  Even for someone that knows dolls.

Yeah she's a lot of weight. I'm looking forward to the challenge lol.

52kg!  :o

That's 114.6 pounds! And that's assuming accuracy and that it includes the 5 pound head. That's a load of doll right there, and you better be a load of man if you expect to handle that. Careful what you wish for. Here's hoping she doesn't become an immovable island of TPE flattening on the floor, merging with the carpet.  :whistle:

As for inserts, Jinsan inserts cannot be beat. That's it in the middle. At least not by SY(left) or JY/AF/AS/JL/Jarliet (probably more)(right). YL is a Jinsan product (YL/OR/WM/does Jellynew still exist?).
(http://www.ourdollcommunity.com/gallery/albums/userpics/Inserts1~0.jpg)

Honestly Poly, I don't know how you screw up with a Jinsan insert, unless your particular doll has a problem. I like it WAY better than my Real Doll inserts, and 1000 times better than Sinthetic inserts. And as you know, the American cock will drive that skinny SY insert into the back of the cavity, but the good news is, your Jinsan will go right in (with a little coaxing) making your SY insert doll quite functional. The JY engineer deserves a Darwin award for that design. However, it can be made usable simply by snipping off the "lips" which guide your penis AWAY from the target. The Jinsan insert can again work here, if you shorten it. LOL!

Hey Begog,

Thanks for the info, the pictures are a big help as well. Looks like I'll be better off ordering the doll with an insert and pairing it with the Jinsan insert if it is compatible. Out of curiosity, what does WM stand for? Is it a particular manufacturer or is it one of those nicknames that was given and just stuck?
Title: Re: New to the forum and looking to make my first purchase

My WM Doll has that luscious Jinsan insert.

And I purchased a second for $20 off one of ODC's vendors.

Honestly, unless you are young, and in great shape, weight is a huge consideration.

This is where the "Big Head" needs to override the "Little Head's" compulsive thinking.

Just my opinion.

Here is another alternative to a stock insert; http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/index.php?topic=10209.0

Lol @Camp, not as young as I used to be, but still in great shape  :)

@Incred thanks for the additional info on the alternate insert options!

I can't recommend enough to pay extra for the standing option on that doll. At that weight and height, not being able to stand would make changing clothes a real challenge. Mine's only 73lbs and while I'm pretty strong, I can't fathom how I'd change her skirts and panties without standing her up.
Title: Re: New to the forum and looking to make my first purchase
Post by: CMiles76 on February 24, 2019, 05:01:51 AM
@Junk Guy

Oh there's not a doubt that I'd get the standing option lol.
Title: Re: New to the forum and looking to make my first purchase
Post by: Begog on February 24, 2019, 09:51:15 AM
At that weight, I doubt she stands long, not if you bend her joints much. She will have to be extremely stiff to stand at all, which is going to make her tough to manipulate and fuck. All it takes is for one joint, usually a knee, to loosen to a point it can no longer support the weight of the doll, and reliable standing is over. Jotti here has been standing since mid 2016, but I bend her knees no more than I have to, to keep her standing long as possible.

@Begog

Jotti looks great! I also like the knife in the background as well.

Just a small update, I’ve spent the last few days testing out a few of the websites that carry the particular doll I’m interested in and I have to admit, Yourdoll.com didn’t leave me feeling very confident in their service due to the lack of communication. So I’m most likely going to go with a different vendor.

I agree the Standing Option is Worth the Extra $$$..

Just a quick update. Today I pulled the trigger and ordered the "Jasmine" doll that I posted about. I'm looking forward to receiving her in the near future.  Thanks to everyone for the feedback and info!

Get an insert doll. Much easier to clean.
Title: Re: New to the forum and looking to make my first purchase
Post by: CMiles76 on October 12, 2019, 02:47:36 PM
Yes, I went with the insert option. Now I'm doing research on shoes, sheets, etc. Is it true that placing a pillow under a doll when leaving her on the bed will help keep her shape and prevent flattening of various areas?
Title: Re: New to the forum and looking to make my first purchase
Post by: Poly on October 13, 2019, 03:48:53 PM
Congrats on your purchase! Can't wait to see her. I've had varying degrees of success with the pillows and other propping, but I don't think it can really hurt. Maybe consider a memory foam type of mattress topper if she has to be stored for long...

I'm keeping the name "Jasmine" for her and I honestly couldn't resist ordering the outfit she was first shown in to go with her.

A big thank you to everyone who replied and helped make this decision an easy one!
