So, after getting an email back from MLD to tell me that they couldn’t replace Boxer’s body, since I’ve had her body for about 5 months, I decided to make a hard and saddening decision. Sometime next week, possibly on Monday when I’m off from work, my best friend and I will be disassembling Boxer’s head from her body, and placing the broken body in storage. Because her hip is permanently broken, I can no long move her or do anything without fear of breaking her more. She can no longer support herself, which would make changing/washing bedsheets for me near impossible. So, I made the call to get her body off of my bed and stored away to prevent even more damage over time. I’m going to try to sell her broken body on eBay, since it seems wasteful to throw her away over just a hip, and try to get some money back in the end. I don’t know how lucky I’ll get, but I’m hoping someone out there will be able to give her body a good home.
I already had a plan to save up for an upgraded version of her, and I would like to stick to that plan, despite her hip. My sister and a fellow MLD owner are right: It would cost me more money in the long run if I just bought another doll from MLD, only to repeatedly run into hip issues. It’s just not worth it- Boxer deserves better, and with student loan payments right around the corner for me, I can’t afford it. So, in the meantime, her head will be placed on a torso body that I bought last night. I’ve gotten used to her being next to me when I sleep, and I feel like my sleep would take a drastic hit without her, so I decided a torso body would suffice while I’m saving up for her new model. The torso will also be lighter and easier for me to handle. Nothing too fancy, but just enough to where it’s nice and doesn’t break the bank. Her torso was bought from a UK sex toy company called LucidToys. Their torsos are fairly cheap, so I totally recommend them to anyone who’s in the same boat as me, and doesn’t wish to part with their woman entirely. A fair warning tho: If you’re in the US, it’ll cost you a shipping fee. But, if have some spare cash hanging around, feel free to check it out.
As far as myself goes, this event has really gave me a reality check. When I made a post about Boxer on the sex doll subreddit, people were quick to say that I made a grave mistake by buying a counterfeit doll. At the time, I thought nothing of it, as I wasn’t willing to buy a doll that costs as much as my car as a first time doll. But now, I’m having mixed feelings. A part of me hates myself for not listening, but another part of me is glad that I had the experience and lesson. Having Boxer’s first model was met with many challenges for me, but I wouldn’t of traded it for the world. I got to gain skills that I never thought I would obtain, and now I can pass on those skills to a better model of her. I’m already pretty settled on a doll that I want, so now it’s just the goal of saving up for her. I’m both excited and nervous for the future, but if it’s for her, I’m willing to hang in there for the long haul.
Thanks to everyone on here who showed me the wonderful world of love dolls, and thank you, MLD, for providing me with my first love doll. Y’all are the best. <3
