Sex Dolls and Aging: A New Horizon for Elderly Companionship

Posted on June 12 2023

You might not have realized it yet, but we are in the throes of a revolution at the moment. The sex doll revolution. Some might view that as a dramatic term, but make no mistake about it: sex dolls have absolutely exploded in popularity over the last few years, as people from all walks of life, gender, and race - and from various corners of the world - are buying sex dolls in growing numbers.

If you have any doubts about that statement, allow us to throw up a few figures that will hopefully shed a little light on the staggering and sudden surge of interest in sex dolls: barely ten years ago, sex dolls accounted for around $500 million in annual sales. Skip forward to the present day (2023, at the time of writing), and yearly sales for sex dolls are approaching $3 billion.

That's quite a number, you might agree.

There are reasons for the rise in popularity, but that isn't the point of this blog post, so we will refrain from delving into it for now. Let's just say that sex dolls are no longer stigmatized as they once were and have become almost (but not quite) as normal to own as any regular sex toy. 

That, coupled with a lockdown-fueled period of sexual isolation for millions of people worldwide, has contributed to an incredible boom in sales and a shift in perceptions. 

Everyone Is Getting In On The Fun

In years gone by, owning a sex doll risked exposure to an unfair stereotype - that of a lonely local oddball who struggled to fit in with society. Perceptions have now changed, as people from all walks of life, ages, and social statuses buy sex dolls for perfectly healthy reasons.

However, despite the boom in sales across all demographics, one particular group of consumers has been slow to join the fun; seniors. But now, that is also changing, as seniors are beginning to embrace sex dolls as a legitimate addition to a healthy, fun-filled sex life. 

Seniors & Sex Dolls

It is time to challenge a common misconception about older people: the belief that they no longer enjoy or have the stamina for sex. Contrary to popular belief, many older people have a healthy sex drive. By the same token, a large number of seniors experience sexual loneliness, especially after the loss of a partner. 

Unfortunately, finding a new companion can be a challenging endeavor for seniors, which presents something of a problem for those who are still sexually active.

There is also a prevailing belief that seniors are conservative and resistant to using technology such as various sex toys or even watching a little online porn to fulfill sexual needs. While there may be some truth to this, we should be mindful that any hesitation to embrace erotic accessories stems from unfamiliarity rather than a genuine aversion. 

Unfortunately, this stereotype prevents seniors from receiving much-needed support in this area, as their families and friends fear introducing more liberal ideas to the elderly. However, once again, this is a misconception. Given a chance to explore and understand alternative, erotic fun, seniors often embrace the practice with open arms.

Breaking Free From Taboos

But this stereotype has been challenged over the last few years as we open the door to discussing the potential benefits of sex dolls for the elderly.

Many people believe that discussing sex dolls with their elderly family members would be perceived as strange or inappropriate. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, introducing sex dolls to seniors can provide them with a means to combat loneliness and depression and is very much a subject worth raising as a suggestion for lonely seniors. 

Just as with non-seniors, sexual release plays a crucial role in our overall happiness. Considering the prevalence of depression and anxiety among senior citizens, sex dolls are a legitimate solution to their general well-being.

Embrace the Topic

The fact of the matter is quite simple; we should try not to shy away from discussing sex with the older people in our lives. Sure, this may feel a little awkward for some people to talk about initially, but really when you take stock of the subject matter - sex - it is a perfectly normal activity that most people engage in frequently. It is only an awkward subject because we make it so in our minds.

By gently introducing the idea of sex dolls to seniors, we can help them overcome any reservations they may have. Inform them that realistic-looking sex dolls tailored to their preferences are readily available and that sex dolls have improved greatly in comparison to the almost comical-looking ‘blow-up dolls’ of years gone by.

Advantages of Sex Dolls for the Elderly

Sex dolls offer a range of benefits specifically catered to the elderly population. Beyond the obvious, there are many aspects worth exploring, shedding a little light on how these incredibly realistic companions can transform the lives of seniors in ways that you might not imagine.

Let's take a look at some of the more obvious advantages:

Alleviating Loneliness

Did you know that loneliness has become a pandemic affecting both young and old? However, older individuals tend to be more profoundly affected, often finding themselves without someone to confide in. Many seniors face abandonment or neglect from their families, while others struggle to spend quality time with loved ones who are caught up in the hectic demands of modern life. This chronic loneliness can be effectively mitigated with the companionship of a love doll.

Investing in a realistic sex doll not only provides an outlet for sexual satisfaction but also offers a comforting companion during moments of solitude. High-quality silicone sex dolls are not just skilled in the bedroom; they also offer an essence of companionship. 

Enhancing Health and Well-being

Depression, stress, and anxiety rank among the most common health issues in the society we live in. These mental health challenges not only impact the state of mind but also have detrimental effects on physical well-being. Sex serves as an effective stress release, yet people often fail to recognize that a lack of sexual activity can contribute to feelings of heightened stress.

Seniors are no exception. They also experience increased stress due to a lack of sexual activity. So what can they do in these circumstances? One option is to explore avenues that experience sexual pleasure and release. 

This is where sex dolls enter the fold. Older adults require a partner who is always available, allowing them to engage in sexual intimacy whenever desired. A lifelike sex doll serves that solution very well, indeed.

Embracing Sexual Autonomy

Age should never be a barrier to sexual autonomy and self-expression! It is important to empower older adults to take control of their own sexual journeys and make informed choices that align with their desires and preferences. By challenging the stereotype, we can promote a culture that values and respects the sexual agency of older individuals.

Rediscovering Intimacy with Sex Dolls

Embracing the golden years doesn't have to mean bidding farewell to a vibrant and fulfilling sex life. It is simply a chance to embark on a thrilling journey of exploration and connection with a senior partner. 

Sex dolls offer seniors a safe and satisfying solution to revive their sexual connection. With our lifelike and customizable companions at their side, seniors can reclaim intimacy on their own terms, energizing their passion for life and savoring the pleasures of touch and companionship. 

Bottom Line

Loneliness has actually become a widespread epidemic affecting people of all ages - even more so since the isolation of the pandemic not too long ago. Older people are hit particularly hard with loneliness, leaving them without a confidant or companion to lean on. 

Many seniors (but certainly not all) experience feelings of abandonment or neglect from their own families and friends, while others struggle to connect with loved ones caught up in the whirlwind of a fast-paced modern life. Thankfully, with the rise in popularity of the sex doll, there is a solution that can help alleviate this chronic loneliness for seniors.

Investing in a high-quality, realistic sex doll made from either TPE or silicone doesn't just provide a satisfying sexual outlet for seniors; it also offers a comforting presence during those solitary moments. 

Of course, we are not suggesting that seniors can actually hang out with sex dolls as a real substitute for human interaction, but you might be surprised at the comfort seniors derive just by having a sex doll around. 

If you or a loved one are in the twilight years of life and would like to pursue a healthy alternative, join the revolution by ordering a Silicon Wives sex doll and put an end to sexual loneliness!
