A lot of gay men have a keen curiosity for rubber dolls. For some, becoming a rubber doll is more than a fetish and has become their lifestyle. Whether you’re only curious about rubber doll play or want to boost your experience in the activity, you found a great place to expand your knowledge. In this post, we talk about rubber doll play basics. We’ll also give you tips on how to become a rubber doll expert and how to optimize your rubber doll persona and play.

What Does the Rubber Doll Mean?

A rubber doll is a man or woman who enjoys dressing in rubber bodysuits and doll masks. In this context, we’re talking exclusively about gay men dressing up as rubber dolls. The activity of becoming a rubber doll is called rubber dolling. Rubber dolling is a reasonably novel fetish. It is a subcategory of the latex fetish focused on taking up the appearance of a mannequin or blow-up doll dressed in latex clothes. The most common costume is a full-body catsuit in skin tone, white, or black colors.

On top of wearing bodysuits that make them look like they have plastic skin, rubber dolls also imitate an exaggerated Barbie-type figure. They have huge breasts, exaggerated hips and thighs, elongated fingernails, tiny waists, and excessive makeup. Others also wear female silicone masks to cover their heads and to match their clothes. Of course, some gay men also enjoy keeping a masculine figure. Some wear latex with silicone bits to enhance their muscles or full-body muscle suits.

Subcategories of Rubber Dolls

Like other subcategories of kink, rubber dolls come in a spectrum. There are four simple categories:

· Submissive dolls. 

These are individuals with an overlapping interest in BDSM. They often take the submissive role in a sadomasochistic relationship. Submissive dolls enjoy being objectified and being at the mercy of the dominant person. They may also have rubber bondage or encasement fetish.

· Sissy dolls. 

A sissy rubber doll is ordinary in the transgender and transvestite community. Others see it as a form of costume play or roleplay, wherein the scenario covers turning into a female doll or “forced femme.”

· Show dolls. 

Dressing up as a show doll is more for exhibition. This subtype of rubber dolling also has many overlaps in the BDSM and transvestite/transgender communities. The show doll strives to look as pretty as possible so their mistresses or doms can show them off.

· Art dolls. 

Individuals with a unique artistic sense may enter the rubber dolling scene for the statement it makes instead of as a fetishistic pleasure. An art doll can dress up and look like a rubber doll but not engage in sex or similar activities.

Why Do Gay Men Like Rubber Dolls?

Many gay men into rubber dolling agree that the activity is satisfying and fun for them to express themselves. For others with a rubber doll fetish, becoming a rubber doll turns them on and provides sexual gratification. Often, they enjoy scenarios involving another person’s ownership or objectification of them. Other concepts they want are being submissive or the slave in sexual roleplay. As rubber dolls, they can pretend to be sex dolls at the mercy of their masters, doms, or owners. Some fetishists enjoy the idea of turning into a female beauty and living a scenario of being a forced femme.

Some gay men don’t use their rubber doll looks for sexual gratification. They may use it for art expression. Other gay men live a doll’s life. After all, dolls are forever. Sometimes, it is enjoyable for these men to dress up in their rubber doll persona and go shopping or walk on the street.

What Makes Being a Rubber Doll Fun?

Rubber dolling isn’t for everyone, but it can be an excellent experience for the curious. It can be a fun experiment for gay men who enjoy objectifying their bodies. Becoming a rubber doll can also be an ideal alternative scenario for those in the BDSM community and those who prefer being submissive. The change of scenario can give you a different role without changing your submissiveness. You can also practice your dollface acting or character when you roleplay or dress up as a rubber doll. Finally, it’s for gay men who prefer to be silent during sexual intercourse, day or night. After all, sex dolls can’t make noises, so dressing up as one can make you feel less self-conscious about your quietness in bed.

Tips for Rubber Dolling

Being a rubber doll is all about transforming and enjoying yourself. Below are some tips to help new and old rubber dolls learn new tricks to improve their personas. 

Find Your Style

Not all rubber dolls are the same. Some prefer to wear a more aesthetically pleasing silicone face, while others like wearing latex masks with enormous eyes, wild hair, and cartoonish expressions. Some gay men enjoy tight-fitting catsuits that show off their figure, while others love using silicone bodysuits to become buff and more significant. Don’t be afraid to experiment to find the style you enjoy most.


Choose Comfortable and High-Quality Gear

Pick high-quality latex masks, silicone bodysuits, and other garments. Look for items that provide durability and comfort. Covering your body with synthetic materials for hours can be exhausting. However, you can easily forget it if you have comfortable, skin-friendly, and well-fitted items.
