A sex doll (also love doll or blowup doll) is a type of sex toy in the size and shape of a sexual partner for aid in masturbation.
The sex doll may consist of an entire body with face, or just a head, pelvis or other partial body, with the accessories (vagina, anus, mouth, penis) for sexual stimulation.
In this connection we may refer to fornicatory acts effected with artificial imitations of the human body, or of individual parts of that body.
There exist true Vaucansons in this province of pornographic technology, clever mechanics who, from rubber and other plastic materials, prepare entire male or female bodies, which, as hommes or dames de voyage, subserve fornicatory purposes.
These dolls usually have an articulated PVC or metal skeleton with flexible joints that allows them to be positioned in a variety of positions for display and for sexual acts.
Such artificial human beings are actually offered for sale in the catalogue of certain manufacturers of "Parisian rubber articles." The production of human simulacra to substitute for human sexual partners took several technological leaps forward in the late twentieth century.Britain was forced to lift its stringent import prohibitions dating from 1876, because for imports from within the European Community they constituted a barrier to free trade under the terms of the Treaty of Rome.Shin Takagi, founder of the company Trottla, manufactures lifelike child sex dolls in the belief that doing so provides a safe and legal outlet for men expressing pedophilic desires.This has been disputed by paraphilia researcher Dr. Fagan, who argues that contact with the products would likely have a reinforcing effect, increasing the risk of pedophilic action being taken. These dolls, representing the lowest price-range (less than US ), are usually made of welded vinyl and bear only a passing resemblance to actual people.They have an artificial and typically crudely designed vagina or penis, but due to their affordability many users are willing to overlook their shortcomings.More especially are the genital organs represented in a manner true to nature.
