Review

NOTE: In July 2013, C18 was purchased by another company - Cyber Sex Dolls. Althought Cyber Sex Dolls said they would keep the C18 models and website, it is unknown what changes they will do to the products.

This review is about another of the "ladies" from my harem: the Candy8Teen Body 4 with the Jenna head. Because that is too much to repeat during the review, I will use the name "Alexa" to refer to this doll from now. Also, to make our lives easier, I will refer to the manufacturer as C18.

C18 dolls are different than "Ada" (Love Venus R) and "Kyoko" (Teddy Babe Akiko) in more ways than one. The C18 dolls have a solid foam core similar to the foam you find in a couch seat covered by a silicone skin. "Alexa" is a floppy doll, meaning she doesn't have any type of skeleton - wire or tube - meaning that she is not pose able. Her body is skinny without many curves and small B-cup breasts.

The main characteristic of "Alexa" is that her head is interchangeable. The manufacturer gives two head options for this doll: the "Jenna" and the "Pam" head. Both are Caucasian head that allows for oral sex, but they look slightly different, with "Jenna" having a more square face. The heads are interchangeable, so even if the body doesn't have any skeleton, you will see a PVC pipe sticking out from her neck to insert the head.

Looking at the doll you can realize this is not a high-end doll. It costs about $800, when a high-end costs above $5,000. In fact, C18 is a small business and the quality of the doll you receive shows it. When you receive a C18 doll, be prepared to cut seams (some of them very noticeable), clean the doll, and have a repair kit ready (silicone or Aquaseal wet suit repair material) to repair the minor scratches and exposed foam areas you (probably) will find while unboxing the doll. C18 will ship your doll naked and with a costume wig inside the box. For the price (especially as I bought mine on sale for less than $500), those minor repairs are expected and not a major issue.

How is it as a sex doll? "Alexa's" body requires an insert to be used - and C18 includes one named "Cat in the Can". Even with the insert, the placement is not anatomically correct, but it is placed at a perfect place for sex. The other good thing about this doll is that it accepts the Sex In a Can (SIAC) series from Fleshlight without any modification and regular fleshlights after some minor modifications. Being able to use your favorite insert such as the Lotus Lager, the Lotus, or the STU while grabbing a small life-size breast is a great turn on.

The two major isues with this doll are the arms and the head. The arms of this model come detached from he body, so you will have to use Super Glue to put them in place - and will have to keep gluing them regularly. The second issue is the head. It is removable, so until you find a way to keep it in place, you will be limited to missionary. I was able to fix that issue by using the a wooden broom stick in place of the PVC pipe used by C18. Now I can enjoy "Alexa" in other positions as well...

Verdict: If you are interested in silicone real life doll (such as the Real Sex Dolls) but can't afford them, C18 dolls are a great option. They are affordable and a good introduction to silicone material dolls. The Body 4 is a good option if you prefer skinny type women and/or if you want to use a variety of inserts with a doll.
