    Child sex dolls

    Do not read this thread if you are easily made queasy. There, you have been warned.

    .........

    .........

    .........

    I think the phenomenon of companion dolls and sex dolls is interesting. There are a few good documentaries on YouTube about this topic. After listening to the podcast hunting for warhead, it put child sexual predators in the front of my mind. They are an awful awful bunch. I also watched a film called Rewind about family generational abuse. Ugh.

    So I was wondering about pedophiles who buy sex dolls that look like children. Are there such things? Who makes them? Would anyone admit to buying one? And etc.
    So, imagine my surprise to find out that these objects are outlawed in many states in many countries as Outlawed child pornographic material.

    I am surprised! That seems like extreme government overreach to me. Some guy in
    Australia was convicted for buying a doll formed like a child. But Australia isn’t the only place that has banned this plastic product.

    The doll is an inanimate object. No children were harmed in the making of it.


    I recognize that this is a slippery slope with all kinds of ramifications. But I keep coming back to this seeming like the 21st century version of Blue laws. The outlawing of a hunk of plastic seems very invasive.

    I think I’m going to be on the wrong end of this topic on this Board.

    opinions?

    Having not defined "child" or "sex" - my initial reaction is that there simply shouldn't be "child sex" anything. Want to call it a "sex doll" - fine... keep the "child" out of it.

    The manufacturers call them “companion dolls.”

    Ok with you then?

    They reinforce deviant behavior that is harmful to children and can legitimize it in the twisted mind of a pervert.

    Well, plastic isn't all that good for the environment, so I might have some issues with that.

    As to what people do by themselves behind closed doors, or in the privacy of their own mind, I don't care as long as they don't nonconsensually involve others.

    The fact that you state: "So I was wondering about pedophiles who buy sex dolls that look like children." Then, yes, I think that might raise some flags and could definitely be an issue. Pedophiles and children - not a mix I, personally, approve of and I think there are some laws...

    However, "companion dolls" and consenting adult(s), no one else is hurt (in ANY way), not imposing/infringing on another person, and children are kept out of it - what someone does in the privacy of their own home is none of my business. Whether *I* personally "approve" or not - that's a different story and is for me to deal with.

    There is a very fine line that I'm sure people will draw differently.

    The issue might be does the doll encourage creeps to then seek out bigger thrills with kids. I don’t know. Child sexual abuse in particular is one of the reasons I couldn’t work with kids after 4 years. Social workers have killed themselves after everything they see.

    OK, I confess to being queasy about the whole idea of plastic sex objects both for environmental reasons as well as confirming the validity or acceptability of deviant, meaning illegal, behaviour involving children.

    If someone wishes to have a robot or other item for companionship, go for it.

    How did society get so scr*wed up that people cannot simply be social with others?

    My thinking is along the same line as Teacher Terry. Is there research that shows that when pedophiles get to act out their desires artificially it encourages them to want actual children? If so then these dolls should be outlawed. On the other hand if the research showed the opposite then they should be allowed.

    My guess is that thereís no research at all. Pedophiles who have not acted on their desires canít even seek mental healthcare without getting tangled up with the law so I would be seriously surprised if anyone has been able to do any meaningful research on prevention.
