How Sex Dolls Can Change Many People’s Sex Lives

Technology can be thought of as a possible figure of otherness, renewed with each application and new element with which it surprises us. It is presented to us as another, with all the conflicts that linkage implies. Another that exceeds us, that generates uncertainty in us, that explodes our ideals, that breaks our schemes. The proliferation of devices at a dizzying pace is a reality of our times. The successful inclusion of new technological artifacts transforms the world and if this change has a place it is as long as the subjectivity of the moment can accommodate it.

One of these are sex dolls. They have a hyper-realistic character, both in dimensions, appearance, feel, and weight. Some have sexual organs that store body temperature. They can be built at the request of the buyer following his tastes. The tastes usually include eye color, breast size, height, clothing, joints in the hands, etc. Even today, mini sex doll variants are widely available on the market, following the demand of those who like “small sized satisfying dolls.”


Although they have become popular for sexual use, they can also be used for other purposes, such as artistic or decorative. They often represent an affective presence, they become an admired object and respond to a sexual need.

They present themselves as “excellent sexual partners” for men in various situations. Singles, in a stable relationship who have to spend time away from home for work, when the couple is not sexually active for various reasons, such as illness or sexual disinterest. In fact, especially in the East, many of these dolls are being bought by women who give them to their partners with whom they do not have sexual encounters.

Their commercial discourse presents them as useful insofar as they can satisfy sexual fantasies without the need for agreements or understanding of tastes, free from the “demand for emotional connection”, from the need for explicit or implicit negotiation about the times and forms of sex.

Thanks to hyperrealism, “they look real”, they reproduce the inside of women in terms of the body orifices, and “the breasts bounce as if they were real”. They appear to be real women but by not being so, they allow them to avoid the risk of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.

They are also sold as “companions”, “it is about the difference between returning to an empty house or returning to a house where there is a doll that you are excited to spend time with”. They are offered ““”as the ideal of the perfect woman”, thanks to the customization options, “every man can build his own dream woman”.

Among the advantages, it is mentioned that it can liven up the couple’s sexual life with three-way experiences, protecting against jealousy and romantic complications.

In Japan, love dolls, the name by which they are known, began to be manufactured thirteen years ago, and aimed at men with various physical difficulties. Today they are also presented as ways to cover various emotional handicaps; “real women can hurt you, dolls love me one hundred percent”. Currently, there are companies dedicated to this business also in America and Europe. One of the famous love doll manufacturers from Japan is Gkdoll. It provides a wide range of anime sex dolls and now its products are accessible to many sex doll enthusiasts from all over the world who crave original Japanese sex dolls with strict quality standards.

Inserting emotional intelligence into these dolls is another thing. Some companies plan to improve their realistic sex toy industry using technological advances that allow them to create emotional intelligence, and give life to their dolls. So are sex dolls the same as dolls in general? Of course, in terms of their designation, they are different and with the development of technology, they may at some point be able to .replace the role of adult women”.
