Review & FAQ: Tantaly Cecilia sex doll torso

Imagine a sitcom-​like laugh track in the back­ground as my boyfriend and I unboxed Tantaly's Cecilia sex doll.

Rather, I lift­ed the box flaps, peeked inside, and imme­di­ate­ly closed it, look­ing away.

"Is that the…?"

"Yeah."

"Okay, cool. Cool, cool, cool, cool," he repeat­ed through pursed lips, nodding.

We sat in silence for a sol­id minute or two.

"Good talk."

We're not exact­ly prudes, but our ini­tial con­cerns about using a tor­so sex doll included:

  • Is the dis­em­bod­i­ment of a half sex doll going to feel weird?
  • How does one clean a sex doll dis­creet­ly, con­sid­er­ing nei­ther of us live alone?
  • Where are we going to store it?

I'll answer all of that and more in this sex doll review.

Overall, though, my boyfriend was shocked by how real­is­tic it felt to pen­e­trate the Tantaly Cecila sex doll. It was a major upgrade from a stro­ker to have a soft booty press­ing up against his hips.



How do the textures inside look and feel?

Even more sur­pris­ing: the doll's vagi­na was full of spher­oid tex­tures — or, as the Tantaly web­site called it, "elas­tic bead extru­sion mas­sage." Despite their uncan­ny appear­ance, the beads added asym­me­try for a more real­is­tic sen­sa­tion, like rip­pling vagi­nal rugae.

My boyfriend didn't know that they were spher­i­cal until we looked inside. The beads are quite squishy, seem­ing to blend in with the rest of the walls when touched.

The doll's less-​textured back hole quite under­whelmed him. Granted, he doesn't like giv­ing anal sex IRL, either. "It goes to show how real­is­tic it is," he bantered.

Tantaly Cecilia sex doll tunnel measurements

"How deep do the holes go?"

"Deep enough."

His penis is girthy but about aver­age length, fit­ting quite snug­ly in the doll. Its vagi­na mea­sures 6" (15.2 cm) by 0.4" (1.06 cm) wide, while the oth­er hole mea­sures 5" (12.7 cm).

As an aside, I'm miffed about how Tantaly's Cecilia sex doll prod­uct page has mis­la­beled the cervix. I've said it before: THE CERVIX IS NOT MERELY THE END OF THE VAGINA. IT'S A STRUCTURE WITH A DISTINCT SHAPE AND EROGENOUS INNERVATION, AND IT DESERVES RESPECT.

And the outside of the sex doll?

Cyberskin com­pris­es the doll's entire body. It's super jig­gly and fun to spank, and the skin­like fin­ish is just right for grip­ping the hips while fuck­ing. Goosebumps and pores and labia folds are cap­tured in stun­ning detail, plus a pink gra­di­ent flush­es over the vulva.

Tantaly Cecilia size and weight

Overall, this sex doll mea­sures 12" by 12" (30 cm) on the hor­i­zon­tal plane and 33.8" (86 cm) cir­cum­fer­ence around the hips. Though it's not exact­ly com­pact, we could eas­i­ly stash it in a box near the back of a closet.

Just be aware that the flesh­like con­sis­ten­cy also means it's not easy to car­ry. 19 pounds (9 kg) of rub­ber doesn't sound like a lot, but the weight can flop and shift.

While in use and rest­ing on a sur­face, though, it's quite sta­ble. Use it for mis­sion­ary and doggy-style.

Did the fact that it was a sex doll torso feel weird?

It wasn't as weird as my boyfriend thought it might be. He got over the Cecilia sex doll's lack of legs and upper body pret­ty quickly.

Since one's field of vision is less defined at the periph­er­als, it was easy to keep his focus cen­tered and look away from the edges of the thighs and waist. Even if that wasn't the case, it's quite easy to cov­er them up with, say, blan­kets and pillows.

He did also note that there was an ini­tial pla­s­ticky smell from the fin­ish­ing pow­der. The more olfactory-​oriented might find it off­putting, but it wasn't prob­lem­at­ic for us.

What else can you do with a realistic sex doll?

You're not lim­it­ed to fuck­ing a sex doll. Use it to prac­tice rope or impact play (again, I love to watch the "flesh" jiggle!).

Simulate a 3‑way with a sex doll and a part­ner — with­out the poten­tial hurt feel­ings of unicorn-​hunting. A sex doll isn't a replace­ment for a part­ner or escort, but it can be a fun mid­dle ground for explor­ing group sex. Ménage à trois or ménage à moi — it's up to you.

How to clean a sex doll properly

If I was celi­bate for the rest of my life, it's not kiss­ing or oral sex that I'd miss the most. More press­ing is a sex doll's inabil­i­ty to wash itself.

Proper mate­r­i­al care is a must with TPE. EDIT: the mate­r­i­al does leave an oily residue on sur­faces, which is a sign that it's more like­ly Cyberskin or a vari­a­tion of jel­ly. It's more porous than sil­i­cone, mean­ing that microbes can grow and fes­ter inside. So clean your sex doll thor­ough­ly and check for changes in mate­r­i­al smell or col­or before using it. And dis­con­tin­ue use if irri­ta­tion occurs.

Knowing ahead of time to use a bulb-​style douche in the sex doll would have been help­ful. Without one, it's not exact­ly easy to sneak across the hall­way, bal­ance the sex doll under a tap, and get ade­quate pres­sure to clean inside. A douche is spe­cial­ized for shoot­ing water into the nooks and cran­nies. Rinse and repeat until the water runs clear. Then, squeeze and shake the water out.

Tantaly also sent us a moisture-​absorbing stick for dry­ing the ori­fices' grooves — essen­tial for reduc­ing micro­bial growth. Stick it in, swiv­el it around, and take it out. Pat the out­side dry with a towel.


My verdict on the Tantaly Cecilia sex doll

My boyfriend and I both like the Tantaly Cecilia sex doll a lot. It's super real­is­tic inside and out, it bounces like real flesh, and it's an easy way for sin­gles, cou­ples, and poly­cules alike to spice up sexy times.

    As I have become more curi­ous about sex dolls I have read quite a few reviews of them from the per­spec­tive of women and peo­ple with vagi­nas but yours is the first to address some of the real­ly prob­lem­at­ic mar­ket­ing and as a fat woman of col­or I very much appre­ci­ate it.
