Top 5 Facts About Sex Dolls



Is still considered intercourse if it’s with an inanimate object? You be the judge. Welcome to WatchMojo’s Top 5 Facts. In today’s instalment we’re counting down the Top 5 Facts About Sex Dolls. Come along as we explore the –ahem- ins and outs of these elaborate personal pleasure devices.

#5: For Some Men, They’re More Than Sex Toys



We’ll be talking a lot more about female sex dolls today, but that’s only because, according to estimates by the RealDoll company, female models outsell male sex dolls by a rate of about 9 to 1. While those sales figures might not shock you, you may still be surprised by the nature of the relationship some men have with the inanimate objects they purchase. Rather than being simple elaborate masturbatory devices, sex dolls have become real partner replacements for some. Hearing these men talk, they’re describing genuine emotional bonds with their sex dolls. To them, the only difference between their doll and a living partner, apart from sexual tastes… is public acceptance.

#4: Howard Stern Has Been Credited with Popularizing Them



If it’s taboo, risque, or makes some people uncomfortable… you can bet that the self-proclaimed “King of All Media” has talked about it. And sure enough, after RealDoll launched their realistic sex doll in the mid-90s, Howard Stern was one of the first (if not only) public figures to place an order. Of course, he wasn’t simply getting one for himself... he was getting for the sake of discussing it on his hugely influential show. The thing is… when Stern talks… people listen. After being featured on the show, RealDoll sales allegedly took off. As a result, in retrospect, Howard Stern has been credited as the man who brought the sex doll to the mainstream.

#3: Furry Options Exist Too



Though realism may be the end goal for designers, the more convincing these dolls become, the more the uncanny valley effect sets in. By that logic, would less human-looking sex dolls be easier for people to generally wrap their heads around? Not in this case. The “Furry” subculture is a fandom dedicated to anthropomorphic animals, and while the scene is not an explicitly sexual one, sex is an aspect of it for some. Enter… the furry sex doll. These stuffed anthropomorphic animals are designed so let people indulge their fantasies between Anthrocon hookups. Similar but perhaps easier to accept? A sex doll for your dog to stop it humping legs or furniture.

#2: Sex Dolls Now Have their Own Brothels



Though prostitution is illegal much of the world over, there is nothing prohibiting a man or woman from exchanging money for the sexual services of an inanimate object. Now… we don’t want to think about the cleanup that needs to be done between clients, but hey… Westworld has inspired a whole new world of sexual fantasies, and it was only a matter of time until some adventurous entrepreneur came in to fill the void (so to speak). With one discrete location open in Barcelona, and another allegedly in the works in the UK, this could very well be the start of the robotic sex trade. Japan, of course, is already way ahead of the game.

#1: You Can Have Them Customized to Look Like Someone



Sure, your basic blow-up doll is affordable, but high end, realistic sex dolls cost a small fortune, starting in the thousands of dollars for a base model. From there, countless customization options are available, from skin tone, eye and hair color, to body type and the number of orifices. Where customization gets really expensive however, is when you commission a sex doll to resemble a specific person. Some doll-makers insist that consent forms be provided by the person whose likeness the doll will take on before they’ll accept the contract. Others… aren’t so scrupulous. You can even get sex dolls bearing resemblance to a particular celebrity, though again, this is a topic of legal debate…
