What are the advantages of the Silicone sex doll?

Published

on

There are two kinds of premium dolls. These are the TPE sex dolls and silicone sex dolls. More than 90% of dolls are made of TPE materials. It is because TPE dolls are cheaper to produce. Their elasticity makes it easy to conform to various sex positions, which makes them easy to handle. Two things limiting the development of silicone dolls are the price and technique.

Only less than 10% of sex dolls are made with silicone. It results from the fact that they are expensive to produce. Although, they are more durable and non-porous.

 

Sex dolls comparison.

Silicone sex dolls are on a higher lever doll compared to other sex dolls. The silicone sex doll is resistant to clothing stains, therefore, making it easier to clean. Because it is a thermoset material, it makes it easy to sterilize as it will not lose its shape, unlike the TPE-type sex doll. The TPE sex dolls lose their consistency over time. They enter the glass transition phase when their temperature gets to about 400°C (313K). what are the advantages of silicone dolls? Well, keep reading below to find out what they are.

 

It is an Environment-friendly material.

Silicone sex dolls are environment-friendly materials. They are thermosets since the silicone type is not reactive with most elements meaning they are highly resistant to heat and can retain their shape under high pressure making it hard for them to corrode and lose shape. The silicone sex doll is more durable than the TPE sex doll. Now, the reason is that the TPE sex doll is made of thermoplastic material to a certain extent. They can effortlessly be injected to de-shape and reshape them. This property causes them to lose consistency faster than the silicone sex dolls. Silicone sex dolls can also be used in a wide range of applications that bring out more of their quality.

 

Much more realistic than TPE sex dolls.

Silicone sex dolls are more realistic in sensation, and the body parts do not wobble like that of sex dolls made with TPE materials. They have a firm shape that makes them more rigid.

Unlike the TPE sex doll, The silicone type is easier to clean after making use of it. They do not lose shape due to the high pressure exerted by the user, which makes them more realistic

than the other type.

 

Less Oil on the skin

Oil tends to stay trapped on the doll’s skin and in some inner parts because of the Porosity of the TPE sex dolls. Some users would want to go for TPE-made dolls because of their ability to conform to many sex positions or lubricants used. TPE-made dolls are resistant to water and lubricants, which allows them to corrode easily if not thoroughly cleaned after use which can cause a reaction on the user’s skin and endanger the user’s health when using it in subsequent times. Silicone, on the other hand, is non-porous. So, therefore, Oil does not stain the skin. It requires less maintenance because this feature makes life easier as some users might not have the time to do a thorough cleaning after use.

Less weight

Though the weight of sex dolls varies according to size and the proportions of materials used in production, the same volume of material in a silicone sex doll will be heavier than that of TPE. But because the number of materials used to produce a TPE sex doll is always more, it is always relatively heavy to carry compared to silicone sex dolls.

 

Multi-Makeup and no fade

Due to the low resistance of TPE raw materials to water and lubricants, make-up tends to fade off over time as they come in contact with either the sweat of the users or the lotions used. It isn’t the case for silicone sex dolls, as their non-porous nature makes it possible for them to retain their make-up and look attractive over the time of their usage.

 

Implanted hair on a silicone sex doll, not a wig

Unlike the TPE sex dolls bought with a wig, the hair-on silicone sex dolls are implanted on its head. Implanted hairs are durable because they don’t fall off and are easy to take care while the wig of the TPE sex dolls can fall off during use destroying their beauty. It can affect the mood of the user.

 

Custom sex doll

 

You can customer tpe sex doll or silicone sex doll,the difference between them,you will have more choice on custom silicone sex dolls.You can custom the hair,implanted or wig on silicone sex doll,but there is no implanting hair for TPE sex doll.

Collaboration is the New Competition – Absa Bank Ghana MD

Published

Abena Osei-Poku - MD, Absa Bank Ghana_111

Managing Director of Absa Bank Ghana, Abena Osei-Poku says collaboration is the new competition in the digital financial services space across the continent. She made the comments during a panel discussion on how Africa can build resilience and drive differentiation in the financial sector at the ongoing Financial Times Global Summit.

 

Africa’s financial services sector has transformed from a decade ago with digital technology leading a revolution that is impacting every facet of human life. Three players in the ecosystem – Banks, Fintechs and Telecoms – are at the forefront of this unique opportunity. Whilst the orientation of these three players is diverse in several ways, the overall assessment has been for them to collaborate with their complementary skills in creating an ecosystem that reflects scalability, accessibility, and convenience for the customer.

 

Fintechs and telecom companies have consistently displayed creativity, agility and an innovative mindset that tend to cause positive disruption for the benefit of the customer. Banks, on the other hand, have a robust system of stringent governance and stability at their disposal, which is critical to the partnership.

 

Taking her seat alongside Sim Tshabalala, Chief Executive of Standard Bank Group and Aishah Ahmad, Deputy Governor of Nigeria’s Central Bank, Abena Osei-Poku said:

“Collaboration will always prove to be the way forward for these key stakeholders to co-exist and create sustainable synergies for the benefit of customers, clients and the financial inclusion agenda. It is a shared responsibility and there is no one size fits all. Regulation is also of extreme importance in this dynamic and already we are seeing Central Banks continuously proving assertive, proactive and transformative in their work in this space. Thanks to the global pandemic as well, awareness around digital payments and collaboration is becoming mainstay, which is a good thing. Essentially, we continue to see a gradual harmonisation of the ecosystem thanks to the understanding of all key stakeholders and this is quite satisfying.”

 

Led by David Pilling, Africa Editor of the Financial Times, the panellists covered several areas, including impact of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 on African economies, financial sector regulation and cross-border transactions aided by digital currency.

 

On her views around blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, Abena Osei-Poku said:

“We continue to take a closer look at the cryptocurrency concept as a Bank. It seeks to disrupt the entire financial system by driving regulation away from the Central banks into the hands of individuals aided by a web of computer connections. Most opponents to the model worry about the risk of decentralisation to the financial system. There is also the other important point of price volatility, which becomes an issue of concern to most mainline actors in the sector. At Absa Bank, we are still accessing the diversity of information and structure of the concept and are yet to conclusively devise a direction around it. Again, issues around closing legal loopholes to prevent cybercrime and fraud are of immense importance to us and we shall continue to keep an eye on this area.”

5 marketing tips from the digital space experts

Published

on

There have never been so many ways to communicate with businesses. Phones, e-mails, messaging, but also chatbots, which are on the increase. With the Covid-19 epidemic, discussions have multiplied, giving an even stronger reach to conversational marketing and to these bots, which make it possible to automate part of the exchanges and provide clear and rapid answers to your customers and prospects. But to take advantage of this emerging discipline, you will need to continue experimenting in 2022, starting by determining precisely what issues you want to respond to, with what tool but also on what criteria you will judge the success of your action.

Market research

Positioning yourself against your competitors and arousing the interest of consumers requires regular market research. In 2021, they will continue to be of great importance, in a context where competition is intensifying and where positioning your brand has never been more important. Consistency will make the difference: it’s not just about measuring, it’s also about doing it regularly. The data collected should help companies to base their decisions, but also to set up performance indicators.

Make sure your website is mobile-friendly

Due to the COVID pandemic, the use of mobile devices increased sharply in 2020  . It is very important that your website is optimized for mobile. This will make the user experience easy and convenient for the customers. Time flies when you’re having fun or having a good time, and that’s what you want for your users. A mobile-optimized website will also help you with Google’s Core-Web-Vitals, helping you measure speed, visual stability, and responsiveness. In 2021, paying attention to these metrics will help your Google search rankings accordingly. Remember, you want to be accessible to your customers on mobile and desktop. Most users will find you on mobile devices in 2021, so let’s make sure they enjoy the experience.

Focus on User Experience

According to Google, users show they prefer sites with a great page experience. That makes sense, because who wants to spend hours wrestling online, right? Prioritizing user experience (UX) means that visitors will likely stay engaged with your business website rather than visiting your competition. To help businesses measure their website’s user experience, Google has rolled out a new set of metrics called “Core Web Vitals” that help measure website speed, responsiveness, and visual stability.

Create content to answer your users’ questions

The content of the best and most attractive always answers questions from your users. If a user feels they can’t find the answers to their questions, they’ll leave.  You want this content to be informative or to enhance the user experience and ultimately help solve their problems. TikTok is another way to answer users’ questions. You can buy TikTok views and wait for the viral-nature of the video. Most of the videos on TikTok go viral because of the easy-to-use interface.

Take advantage of paid ads

Traditionally, businesses have used radio, television, print, or other forms of media to increase the visibility of their business. However, the pandemic has affected the efficiency of most of these platforms. Digital was the least affected of these and in fact improved during the pandemic. To reduce costs and increase returns, companies are allocating less to their traditional marketing strategies and more to their digital marketing strategies. This improves traffic to the company’s website, and more traffic means more people find you, which means more sales and potential long-term profits.

Moving Apps and Services, that will help you

Published

on

Moving houses is a challenge, even if you’re a rigorous planner. During the pandemic, it became especially difficult to navigate the logistics. However, this was also the time when mobile apps became increasingly popular. Having moving services and apps at the tip of your fingers is perhaps one of the most convenient things technological advancements have enabled.

From packing to transportation, you can figure out the whole moving process through your smartphone using moving services apps with efficiency and ease. Here are some apps to consider when you’re moving houses, so it is not only COVID-19 safe but a smoother, more consolidated process.

 

1- Zumper – to Save the Day

If your lease is up and you’ve decided to move out of your current home instead of renewing it, the first step to moving is finding a place to stay. More often than not, apartment hunting is a tiring and tough process, where you have to go and look through each open house before making a list of the potential apartments you like.

Zumper gives you a highly convenient option of looking them up through its app to eliminate that process. With over a million listings, you’re going to get real-time alerts about new apartments even before other rental sites have their ads. Moreover, it gives a landlord the option to review digital credit reports and get an e-application ready right away. The app is available for both IOS and Android.

 

2- Dolly Moves You

If you’re moving to a new place with minimal belongings but enough to require some moving services, then Dolly is your answer. The app connects you to your local truck owners, movers, or helpers for your moving needs. This is a great idea, especially if you live in a fully furnished apartment and only have to move essentials like clothes, kitchen gadgets, plants, and other décor.

Decluttering is part of moving. Dolly’s helpers help move items you want to donate to shelters, pick and drop off, or move things into storage units. The app is available on Android and IOS, both for ease of use for anyone.

 

3- TaskRabbit Hopping to Your Help

Regardless of how big or small your moving needs are, whether you want helpers to unpack, pack, or move items to and from houses, TaskRabbit is your best friend. Whether you use the app or the website, you can state the purpose of your move and what task you need to be done. TaskRabbit matches you with a freelancer, i.e., “Taskers” available at that moment who can do the work for you.

You can coordinate with them on the app, let them know in detail all that you want to be done regarding your moving process. The pricing for the freelancers is per hour or per job, depending on the nature of the job. It is also available on both IOS and Android.

 

4- Sortly to the Rescue

You’ve likely been in a situation where you needed something, but you couldn’t recall which box you packed it in. But if you haven’t, there is a high chance that you will experience it – unless you decide to use Sortly to organize all your boxes.

The app offers the chance to use customizable tags, off-the-shelf QR tags, and labels that can be searched, so you don’t have to keep guessing. Just write what you’re looking for, and the app will help you navigate which box you’ve kept it in so you don’t make a grand mess of things, adding to your move-out, move-in stress.

 

Conclusion

Of course, moving is never an easy process, but to ease the burden of having to figure it out all by yourself, you can use the moving services listed above to your advantage and for a smoother move!

MTN Ghana Foundation has donated GHC5Million to National Covid Trust Fund to support government’s effort in combating Corona Virus pandemic in the country. This presentation brings MTN’s total contribution to the National COVID Trust Fund to Ghc10 million.

 

Speaking at a ceremony to present the cheque to Trustees of the Fund at the Jubilee House, the CEO of MTN Ghana, Mr. Selorm Adadevoh expressed his gladness at the opportunity given to MTN to demonstrate its commitment to the people of Ghana by supporting the Trust Fund in their fight against COVID-19.  He said, “Our support to the Trust Fund is to ensure the Government’s strategy in combating the pandemic is fully achieved”.

 

“We believe this will help immensely to provide the needed PPES, education and other services for the people of Ghana and most importantly to brighten lives as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary”, he added.

 

Receiving the cheque on behalf of the Trustee of the National Covid Trust Fund, the chairperson of the Fund, Justice Sophia Akuffo, said, “The contributions have dwindled over the past year. I’m happy that MTN Ghana has come through. MTN Ghana has been a key supporter of the Covid Trust Fund and has contributed a total sum of 10 million Ghana cedis. It is one of the few organizations to have contributed this much to support the fight against COVID-19 in Ghana. We are truly grateful for their assistance.”

 

She added that, “There seems to be this false notion among the public that the pandemic is gone. The fact is the extent of the pandemic has been quite devastating and continues to cause death. There seems to be evidence of a new variant developing. We continue to encourage the Ghanaian citizenry to continue to adhere to all the COVID-19 protocols. We also strongly encourage that you get vaccinated. We are grateful to MTN and we hope other organizations will follow their example as we all work to fight his deadly virus.”

 

The donation to the National COVID-19 Trust Fund is one of the many interventions by MTN Ghana to help stem the COVID 19 pandemic. At the time when the nation was highly in need of PPEs, test kits and PCR Machines in 2020, the MTN Ghana Foundation donated 44,000 Personal Protective Equipment, four (4) Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Machines and Test Kits to the National COVID Trust at the cost of GHS 5 Million. The donation was to help the National Covid Trust Fund enhance the protection of all health personnel in the fight against COVID -19 in the Country.

 

Some of the other key interventions include: Collaboration with the National Information Technology Authority (NITA) to offer all Government workers free access to the Smart Workplace Portal to support Government’s work from home program, protecting the customer through the provision of critical health information, providing free internet access to over 200 websites for online education for public and private institutions, free MoMo transfers up to Ghc100 a day and revision of MoMo wallet limits. MTN Ghana supported the infection monitoring and contact tracing team through the provision of 800 SIM Cards and 8 Terabytes of data to National Security and 10 TurboNet fixed wireless devices with over 2 terabytes of data to the COVID-19 Response Team for use by contact tracers. MTN has also deployed mobile money merchant accounts as collection conduits to support Government institutions such as the Ministry of Finance and the First Lady’s mobilization fund for COVID-19.

 

MTN Ghana also contributed three educational campaigns aimed at getting people to live responsibly. “Be Wise”,  Wear it for me” and “One More Push” campaigns  were to encourage people across the continent not to give up in the fight against COVID-19, and to continue to wear their masks, wash their hands and practice social distancing.

 

On the vaccination front, MTN Group donated USD$25million to support AU’s vaccination rollout across 55 member states to cover 7 million vaccine doses for health workers.

 

MTN Ghana Foundation will continue to support efforts aimed at mitigating the impact of COVID -19 in Ghana.
