Hey guys, this is going to be review for both Sex Doll Australia and my WM 157B Doll, which I've had for a week now. I'm going to divide the review into two parts, so it's easier to follow. I'm also hoping to get some advice on some things as well. This is going to be pretty lengthy but I there's a lot of ground to cover.

Vendor Review

Sex Doll Australia have been great to deal with. I couldn't have asked for a better vendor in purchasing my first doll.

Andrew who works there and who I was communicating with, kept me in the loop every step of the way and his customer service went above and beyond. For example, not long after I had ordered my doll, I asked Andrew if I could buy an extra insert. I anticipated I'd be using the doll quiet regularly and thought having two would be handy. Andrew had WM throw in the extra at no charge which I thought was pretty generous. He also had WM give my doll brown pubic at my request. They initially made a mistake and gave her black pubes but Andrew picked up on it and had them change it. I wouldn't have minded had they been black, but still that attention to detail is pretty good in my opinion.

The doll arrived in exactly 4 weeks, which was advertised on the website. In Australia, as you guys know we've had some horrible bush fires and as a result our postal services were affected. You can imagine I was a little worried about that impacting the delivery of my doll, but after contacting Andrew about it, I was pleasantly surprised that it had already been sent and that he was a little delayed in sending me the tracking. I literally received it the next morning.

The final score for Sex Doll Australia would be an easy 10/10. Any other Aussies looking to by a doll should check them out.

Doll Review


Okay, so now that I've covered the vendor now I'll talk about the doll. This is my first ever doll, so I don't have any room for comparison.

So, I'm going to start with the positives. The doll looks very gorgeous and resembles a cute young woman that you'd find at the park or a gym. Very athletic. Her skin texture feels quite natural and I'm quite happy with the choice of skin tone which was medium. It's not too dark not too pale. I have had play time with her a bit over the week and it feels pretty nice, very close to the real thing. It's been several years since I've been with a real woman, so anyone who is married or has a girlfriend can correct me on that if they like. I'm just going off what I can remember. It's awkward trying to get her in poses other than missionary, but I chalk that up to being inexperienced and timid with trying not to break her joints.

Now, on to the negatives. First of all, a lot of the issues I have with the doll is more to do with my choices and possibly inexperience. This isn't meant to disparage WM dolls, as I think for the money, they did a pretty decent job.

The standing feet option which I selected isn't quite what I was expecting. Despite having this option, I still need to lean my doll against the wall even with shoes. This has proven to be a bit of a pain, which makes me less inclined to use my doll, as I have to go through the annoying process of standing her back up. Again, this is probably down to inexperience but I kind of wish that the doll had a neck bolt similar to realdolls where I could use a stand for storing and posing. I actually still want to get a realdoll down the track, as that is one the big selling points for me, in addition to the realism. Perhaps someone who has experience with both can share their thoughts?

The second issue I've had has been with the pubic hair. It's probably a lot to do with my own clumsiness with putting in the insert and taking it out, but I've been accidentally getting the pubic hairs caught which has been pulling them out. I did try brushing them out of the way, but they're so long and still somehow get caught up. In hindsight I would've foregone the pubic hair had I known what a pain it was going to be. I'm just wondering, is there a safe way to remove them without doing too much damage to the tpe? I was considering on buying one of those pubic hair patches from Real Love Sex Dolls as they appear more realistic and aren't crazy long. I would rather now, I smooth surface and no pubes at all, but I'm worried about TPE scarring from the old pubes which means I might have to cover it up anyway.

So the third issue is the insert. I have little problems getting the insert in. I tried powder, but after that failed, I decided to use petroleum jelly which works well. Getting the insert out though is challenging even with the help of jelly. Another thing I might've chosen differently is that I would've opted for a built in. I know that cleaning the doll would be possibly harder, but the concern of damaging the doll over time from taking the insert out and putting back in is something that bothers me a bit. Of course, if I get a realdoll, it'll be inserts all the way.

Conclusion

Overall, as much as I hate to admit it, experiencing my new doll has been a little underwhelming. Like I said before, a lot of that is probably due to my own inexperience, and choices I made while ordering the doll. However, it could also be that owning a doll probably isn't something I can get into personally. Although I've been on this forum for a few years looking at other peoples dolls and looking forward to having my own, it seems like I've oversold the idea to myself in my mind. It just seems to be a lot of hassle for a small reward and I'm wondering if maybe I should just get into VR porn and a fleshlight for a more realistic sexual experience. I'm also wondering if I'd feel differently with a realdoll, as they seem to be much more realistic and combined with a stand it would make storing the doll, dressing and doing stand poses a lot simpler than fumbling around trying to get the dolls legs at the right angle while dealing with a 30 kilo dead weight. I'm interested to know if anyone has had similar experiences or if it is just me.

Despite the aforementioned points, I don't at all regret buying my doll. The only way I could know what it was like to have one is to buy one myself; there's only so much you can get from other people's shared experiences. Besides, who knows maybe after a few more weeks it might grow on me as I gain more experience with it.

Note: Sorry I don't have any pics, I 'm not sure how to post them.

Hi jellynuts
The WM 157B is a nice doll. I was considering that model. I ended up getting the WM156 body (#85 head) Like you said the 157
looks very athletic. Probably a bit more than the 156. I got my 156 last March. The second doll I've gotten. My first doll I got in 2013.

Like you said, you might warm up more to the doll. My experience with dolls is a little on - off, in the sense that I might ignore the doll
for a week or longer. But then, have the desire to maintain her, like touch up make up, take photos or play with her. Sometimes I like
bringing her out to the living room to sit on the couch. Her presence can be enjoyable. She is definitely beautiful eye candy.
Just for fun, when I post photos of her, I often give her a personality and have written little whimsical backstories.

I'm sure you have seen from this forum, that people have dolls for different reasons. Like just to collect dolls, or mostly as a sex toy, to
something that the person cherishes. Usually it seems a combination of things.

from what you have described, it sounds like the pubic hair is too long. My doll has p. hair too. Some of the hair was too long so I trimmed it.
It looked better after trimming. You should be able to do that too.
 
I am thinking that a realdoll won't be able to free stand either. At least not safely. I don't have one but I doubt it. Maybe someone else knows
of dolls that can do that. I have actually gotten my doll to free stand with the legs in a straight stance, but the slightest breeze or shift in the legs
would have toppled her over. I didn't walk away from her because a free stand would be way to risky.

My doll came with a neck bolt. The type that attaches on top of the neck with the head off. So she can be hung up for storage. Your doll should be
able to hang too if you get a bolt and a hook. I'm assuming she has the stronger hinged neck.
Of course you can't hang her up for photos because the head cant be attached. As far as I know, TPE dolls don't have bolt attachments on the
dolls back.

If you can't figure out posting photos from the forum, you can use a host site as an option. I post photos that way. I use postimage. It is very
easy. Just add images to postimage or some other site. And just cut and paste.
I'm quite sure postimage doesn't have a problem with photos of nude dolls.
It would be nice to see some photos of your doll. I'm sure she is a slender beauty.

I wasn't expecting this response to be so long. It turned into an essay.  :laugh:

Hi senso, I managed to get a couple of pics. They're not the best but I might try and take some better ones when I get my doll more outfits.

I agree I might warm up to her once I get some more experience in the range of motions with her joints. I'm a little timid about it, as I don't want to break any joints. That would be bad. Also I'm trying to be really mindful of the TPE being susceptible to tears so I'm probably going to be doing a monthly oil which I heard is good for the material. I guess in a way, the maintenance and the lack of experience is probably the most off putting. Overall I just want to at the very least keep her in good condition.

You're definitely right there. In time I'm probably going to be figuring out what reasons I have a doll. I'm not sure if I can collect too many though, since I live in a small apartment. It makes it harder to hide them from visitors too, haha.

I'm going to try and trim it down like you said, and see if that makes a difference. Unfortunately I've noticed some the hairs are already starting to come off the doll. I can't figure whether they glued it on or if they hand punched with a needle. It's not a big issue at the moment but does sort of ruin the aesthetic a bit. Ah well, that was my fault though for not knowing any better.

You're right on that one, RealDolls, from what I've read don't stand on their own, but you can buy the tripod stand which you hang the doll from a horizontal neck bolt at the back. I've heard that the doll stand is fairly robust and can support the weight really well. Only issue is, if you were too do some standing shots you would need to use photo shop or something similar to take the stand out of the image. However, it would easier to dress her and store her out of the way when not using her.

With my doll I have the same thing. I need to have her standing on a lean, otherwise I'd have the same thing with her toppling over. Which would suck.

Yeah, I've got the same sort of thing. I just need to get something like a heavy duty clothes hanger to use. I think she does have the hinged neck as well. I've also got the hooks and stuff needed. I agree about not being able to take photos of your doll like that, not unless it was a Texas chainsaw massacre themed shoot, haha.

I was thinking of making a stand of sorts for my doll. A platform for the doll to stand on. Maybe plywood with a sturdy pole and a backrest.
I would think that would be sturdy enough to lean the doll against and be stable. I decided not too. I have limited space also. I don't mind leaning
her against a table or something anyway. Leaning the doll doesn't look bad in photos and putting the doll in a chair is good too and easier to pose.

I don't think you have to worry too much about breaking anything by posing. The joints are sturdy. As long as you know what moves and the
correct direction they travel. The hands are the most delicate. The way I think about it is that the sheer weight of the doll is what can cause
damage. Like kneeling her on a hard surface, or putting a lot of weight on the hands. You probably want to avoid having her do handstands.  :laugh: 
Otherwise dolls are not all that fragile.

Your doll looks very nice. But to be honest, She would look a lot better in a different outfit. It looks like that is what came with the doll. I'm thinking your
not insulted because you said you are getting her better ones. I agree with getting something else.  :laugh:  Actually she would look great in just a simple
bikini. The 157 has great curves for a slender body. Your doll is the same size as mine. It can be difficult to find things small enough to fit. both of these
bodies have a small waist and narrow shoulders. I found extra small fits the best. Or whatever is the smallest adult size.

Looking at the first photo, I think you can make the hands look more natural. You seem to have concerns about moving joints. Just in case you don't
know, the elbows can rotate as well as the wrists. If you rotate both outward a bit, her hands will be more flat to her side. To rotate the wrists, flip the
hands up and they can then be rotated in either direction. You just need to be careful not to damage the hands. The joint will be stiff at first. You do the
same withe elbow. Flip it 90 degrees and it can turn side to side. Also the knees and feet can do this.
I don't know if your doll can shrug her shoulders. Also not positive, but her waist should be able to turn and her back should be able to arch forward and back.

You were saying that the doll didn't do much for you after getting her. It's surprising how much a different outfit or a different wig or make up can change
the dolls appearance.

 
This is an example. The shorts my doll is wearing are extra small but they are still a little big on her but not bad. The top is from
one of those one size fits all costume sets and is huge on her.

Hi there,

You're quite right, the pictures are taken with the nightie that came with the doll. I think in addition to getting some newer outfits and perhaps changing the wig, I was considering getting the vinyl teeth and tongue add-ons which are sold at Real Love Sex Dolls. I think that would add more realism and more options in her expression when taking pictures; as it stands her teeth are weird flesh colour which is a little off putting haha. I also tried face app on my phone with her which seemed to work pretty well for smiles, but I need to get the pro version to have all the face options available.

You're also right about the small waist and narrow shoulders. I think the biggest challenge is going to be buying clothes that aren't too big for her. The smallest size I've seen commercially available in most stores here is about a size 6; I'm going to give that size a try and see how I go.

I haven't tried rotating the wrists yet, I wasn't sure if I could do that haha. She has the shrugging shoulders add-on as well. The arms have been a bit challenging. When the doll arrived the left arm was swinging at a weird angle and was a bit stiff to move into a more neutral swing motion.

You're doll looks quite nice there in that outfit. I'd imagine giving our dolls are similar in size the same kind of outfit would work with mine too.  :laugh:
