Japanese Company Produces Lifelike Child Sex Dolls For Paedophiles

The designer believes the dolls can keep paedophiles from offending and has been producing them for clients for more than ten years.

A Japanese company is manufacturing life-like child sex dolls, marketed specifically for paedophiles who want to control their sexual impulses.

The designer Shin Takagi says the anatomically-correct sex dolls, representing girls as young as five, have been shipped to clients around the world for more than a decade.

He claims to be helping people express their desires, legally and ethically.

The Independent reports:

In an interview with The Atlantic, he described how he set up the Japense company Trottla because of his own attraction to children and his conviction they should be protected.

“We should accept that there is no way to change someone’s fetishes,” Mr Takagi said.

“I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically. It’s not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire.”

Treatments for paedophilia exist, including cognitive-behavioural therapy and chemical castration, along with other interventions intended to suppress urges.

However, a meta-analysis by the Mayo Clinic found the treatments “do not change the paedophile’s basic sexual orientation towards children”.

Mr Takagi believes the dolls he creates – sent mostly to “men living alone” – save children from sexual abuse.

He said: “I often receive letters from buyers. The letters say, ‘Thanks to your dolls, I can keep from committing a crime.’”

“I hear statements like that from doctors, prep school teachers—even celebrities.”

Michael Seto, a psychologist and sexologist at the University of Toronto, told The Atlantic there were two different types of paedophiles.

He said: “For some paedophiles, access to artificial child pornography or to child sex dolls could be a safer outlet for their sexual urges, reducing the likelihood that they would seek out child pornography or sex with real children.

“For others, having these substitutes might only aggravate their sense of frustration.”
