Recently, sex dolls have been back on the headlines thanks to Amazon banning the sale of “child sex dolls”. This is a positive act by the giant re-seller, but it brings up a question: Are all small sex dolls “child sex dolls”?
As a sex doll owner – with a couple of scaled down dolls in the collection -, I have a couple of distinctions ignored by the media. Lets go to them…
Small does not equal to child
Being honest, there are sex dolls resembling children. They exist…and they SHOULD be banned. Pedophilia, regardless if it is a mental condition or not, involves a sexual act with someone who cannot consent to it – and we all agree non-consensual sex is WRONG.
Now, the problem here is that authorities are using the size of the doll to determine the “age” represented – and that is also wrong. Sex dolls come in different sizes, from life-size (above 5 feet tall) to micro dolls (65 centimeter or 2 feet). The height of the doll has nothing to do with the represented age on the doll – we are familiar with Barbie, who represents a 25 – 30 years old woman and only measures 12 inches.
A sex doll can be a scaled down version of an adult and represent an adult. Many American doll makers were pioneers in that effort – Cassi Doll, Mini Love Doll, Virgin Rose Doll, Aiko Doll, and Private Island Beauties come to mind. From that list only Aiko Doll and Private Island Beauties stay in business because their product does not compete with Chinese TPE dolls (Aiko) or they have a known line of high quality life-size dolls (PIB).
American manufacturers are self-regulated
These child sex dolls are not made in the United States. American manufacturers like Real Dolls, Ruby13, and PIB among others had established since starting their business to only produce adult-looking dolls. Even Eight Wonder and their Teddy Babes dolls (plush dolls) made their 4 feet, 6 inches tall original dolls to look adult. No USA major manufacturer makes or promotes child-like dolls and they have been doing this since 12 years ago.
What the media forgets to mention is that 99.9% of these child sex dolls come from Japan and China. In the past 5 years, Japan has cracked down on the manufacture and export of sex dolls, prohibiting the sale of dolls resembling pre-pubescent children. Unfortunately, Chinese manufacturers have not done the same. The child-like dolls making headlines in the UK, Canada, and the US are all from Chinese vendors or sold by marketplaces (*cough* eBay *cough* Amazon*cough*) with very little control of what is sold by third parties unless some one flags the store.
Sometimes, we need the small doll
If you are a reader of this blog, you know I have a collection of sex dolls. Most of my dolls are plush dolls (Teddy Babes, Japanese dolls, even a couple of “custom made” ones) because they are light and I have problems with my back and knees. Still, I sometimes want a more realistic partner on my bed, so I also have silicone and TPE dolls.
That said, a life size silicone or TPE doll weights between 65 to 100 pounds. Have you tried to lift 65 pounds of dead weight? It requires strength – and a good back. Although I consider myself pretty strong, moving some of my life size silicone dolls (specially my Ruby 13 “Brazil”, which weights 80 fucking pounds), sometimes taxes my back. That is why having a smaller doll in the 100 to 140 cm (39 to 55 inches) is often needed. Not only they weight a lot less – between 25 to 45 pounds – , these smaller dolls are also easier to store and transport making them a good option to avoid injuries. Also, these smaller dolls cost less – sometimes one third of a full size doll – making them more accessible to guys that otherwise would be either looking for “sex workers” (illegal in all 50 states) or trying to hook up with a lady on a club… and exposing himself to a possible #MeToo accusation.
By the way, if you are a politician or lawmaker, and you want to know more about dolls…contact me. I can educate you a little bit…
