Best Sex Dolls: The Shalana Z-One Elf

I’ve been single for about a year now, but that doesn’t mean it’s been a year since the last time I had sex. In fact, I probably get laid more often these days. Now that I’m unattached to my partner, I’m no longer held accountable for my penis’s performance (or lack thereof). Busting a relaxed nut inside a high-quality sex doll is one of my favorite things to do at this point, plus she never asks for cab fare, never needs to be fed an expensive dinner before I cram myself inside her, and never complains about me to her mother. Having been on this solo path for quite some time, it’s easier than ever for me to pick out a good pleasure product even while the market is getting more and more confusing. I like to think of it as a gift (and a curse). Either way, it’s helped me find some of the best items in my entire collection, including my stash of sexy dolls and twerking torsos.

Lately, I’ve been wanting to add a little flair to my collection, so I’ve started branching out a bit to find something that would suit my curiosities. I was looking for a doll with a few fantasy features, not something super human-like in its appearance but still realistic to the touch. Apparently, that’s a tough line to draw these days, even in the face of such impressive market variety. I ended up discovering only a handful of possible options, including one that was called the Shalana Z-One Elf. At first glance, she looked like a character straight out of the Avatar movies. Upon further inspection, I began to notice that she had way more than I initially expected. So, was my experience with Shalana “out of this world” or did my feet remain firmly planted in the realities of my somewhat pathetic situation? Well, let’s make sure you know which sex doll I’m talking about first.

What Is the Shalana Z-One Elf?

The Shalana sex doll is specially crafted to look like an alluring elf – a unique physical feature that’s suitable for fantasy lovers and creative sex enthusiasts alike, although it might be a fun alternative for realistic doll fans as well. Crafted to stimulate the senses in more ways than one, the Z-One Elf doll is made by one of the industry’s most respected manufacturers, known for their high-end materials and attention to detail. The doll itself is designed to perform just like a real human partner, with oral, anal and vaginal canals to explore. She stays hot and heavy while remaining motionless and ready for commands thanks to the innovative craftsmanship and durable construction, plus many of her components can be customized to fit the buyer’s personal preferences.

The Main Features

As one of the market’s finest, Shalana shouldn’t even be considered a toy. She’s more like a real girl, although her elf-like features may paint a different picture. Regardless of her fantastic appearance, she comes wrapped in silky-smooth, skin-like silicone and is considered to be among the realest sex dolls available right now. Aside from her external makeup, the Z-One Elf doll also features an internal skeleton that lets her move around into almost any position during intercourse. Her taunt little body provides three distinct holes to explore, each with it own unique canal texture for added versatility. Staring back while you huff and puff will be a lovely grey-eyed lady with aqua blue hair and a naughty smirk measuring approximately 51 inches (or 130 cm) and weighing about 53 pounds (or 24 kg).

Shalana’s cavity depths also vary for even more pleasure options. For example, her oral capacity is just 5.12 inches, but her anal capacity is a generous 6.7 inches and her vaginal length allows for 7.9 inches in total. The maker claims that she’s made to serve us better, so they provide the option of a removeable vagina which is much easier to clean, maintain and swap for different textures. If you go that route, the manufacturer provides an additional canal at no extra charge. Regardless of your choice there though, the standard model always comes with a 30-inch bust, a 16-inch waist, and 31-inch hips for a petite yet well-proportioned experience that’s weighty and balanced just right for a multitude of positions.

What Comes in the Box?

Most high-end sex dolls come with a bunch of freebies in the box, usually because the manufacturer wants to make things as enjoyable and realistic as possible. The better brands are really good at stuffing their packages with unnecessary yet welcomed extras, and the Shalana Z-One Elf sex doll is no exception. There is no shortage of quality accessories in the box with this one, but the bad part is that it all comes in two separate shipments. Here’s what you get for the money and the order in which you’ll receive it too:


  • The Shalana sex doll body
  • The Shalana sex doll head
  • A soft blanket
  • A pair of hypoallergenic handling gloves
  • Two attractive elf wigs
  • A styling comb
  • A random outfit
  • A vaginal irrigator


  • Two complimentary outfits

If you’ve chosen any optional add-on features, this is the shipment they will come in to prevent any delays in receiving the actual doll. Shipments might include the following items:

  • Suspension kits (hooks and head stands)
  • Storage Cases
  • Storage Couches
  • Heating Elements

By the way, the heating option is offered at no extra cost to the consumer and can be opted out if you’re into cold, heartless sex. Choose a spare head for free if you opt out of the self-heating body.

The Experience

Even attractive, luxury-grade pleasure products can perform poorly, so I put Shalana to the ultimate test by using the same basic criteria designed for every sex doll I encounter. Here’s how she measured up:

  • The Dimensions 

She’s heavy and well-balanced enough to survive some serious banging, but she easily topples over if she’s not properly propped up against something sturdy because she weighs just over 50 pounds. Her body is super petite too, which makes finding outfits a pain in the ass. Thankfully, the manufacturer sends a few options to keep things simple and interesting.

  • The Materials 

She’s luxurious to the touch, with an exceptional reception of bodily fluids and a preference to any water-based lubes I used. And unlike most other sex dolls I’ve fucked, Shalana’s skin doesn’t tear easily and she’s super easy to clean. Go for the removeable vagina, folks. I don’t care how much extra it costs.

  • The Sensations 

I preferred Shalana from the back because I didn’t like her huge, dead eyes staring into the windows of my soul. It turned out to be the best decision anyway, because her anal cavity outperformed the other ones in my humble opinion – more space, better texture, and more cushion for the pushin’.

  • The Functionality 

Overall, the Shalana Z-One Elf functioned exactly as I expected. The addition of a bendable steel skeleton was the perfect touch too, and it pretty much made up for the fact that the doll was so lightweight and petite. She just might not be for all users because of her appearance, and her homecoming takes a bit longer due to all the optional features available. That’s not too big of a deal in my book.

The Ups and Downs

I’ve had far too many experiences where I thought the product was perfect and ended up disappointed that it wasn’t. What I learned was that there’s no such thing as a flawless sex toy, even when it comes to high-end dolls made by reputable companies. It’s all about finding what works for you, because “pleasure” in your mind might be “pain” in someone else’s. The best way to sort it all out is to take inventory of the ups and downs. So, here’s what I think you need to know about the Shalana Z-One Elf Sex Doll before spending any money on it:


  • Bendable yet durable built-in skeleton
  • Fantasy-based appearance
  • Removeable vagina for easier cleaning
  • Distinct pleasure canals
  • Realistic feeling flesh
  • Made from skin-safe materials
  • Manufacturer’s warranty included


  • May not be realistic enough for some users
  • Does not accomodate all penis sizes
  • Sent in two separate shipments

The Takeaway

My experience with Shalana was pretty much what I expected, except for the fact that I wasn’t able to completely bottom out because of her relatively limited canal size. She took it like a champ though, staying perfectly still yet slightly bouncing back with every unapologetic thrust I delivered. Having opted for the body heater, my experience was extremely realistic (or at least more so than it might have been without it). I still would have preferred an optional vibrating function or a removeable anal cavity or something to that effect. It’s not the most luxurious sex doll I’ve ever encountered, but it’s certainly a decent purchase for men who want to explore the realm of sexual fantasy without breaking the law or someone’s back. Overall, it’s probably most ideal for newbies or fetishists who want an upgraded, higher-end version of their ideal elven partner (especially if they use it with VR equipment and/or fantasy porn content as well).
