The history of sex dolls

Sex dolls, which were born as human masturbation tools, are rumored to have originated during World War II. By the 1970s, sex dolls began to enter the stage of commercial development. Japan has developed a plastic, inflatable humanoid masturbation device. Because it is very similar to an inflatable swimming ring: it can be folded and stored, and it only needs to be inflated to become the shape of a human body, so it is also called an “inflatable doll”.

In fact, the inflatable dolls of that era were not so much “human-shaped masturbation devices” as they were “human-shaped balloon toys” – and they were simply constructed and crudely made balloon toys. Compared to the inflatable mascots in front of today’s malls, these inflatables are only more human in shape and have a hole or two for people to vent.

But despite this, the appearance of the inflatable doll still makes the majority of demanders feel that there is a long drought in the rain, and it has been well received once it is launched – especially in Japan, the sales are very hot! In fact, there are other extreme uses of this kind of thing. For example, when the flood occurred in Australia in early January 2011, two 19-year-old youths used an inflatable doll as a lifebuoy to survive until rescue came.

Portable doll, convenient but not satisfied
One of the trends in human inventions is simplicity and ingenuity. So in the 1980s, the “palm-sized doll” that is still widely circulated appeared. It is roughly equivalent to a big hollowed out banana. It is very convenient to use, easy to carry, and easy to hide, so it once became a product that many demanders rushed to buy.

The problem, though, is that such a small doll isn’t much different from masturbating. After all, most people still want to have a full embrace, not just a full palm.

Simulation doll, more and more real and beautiful
In the late 1980s, one-piece sex dolls appeared. At this time, the sex doll began to approach the simulation direction. At first, the entire body of the one-piece doll was rigid, even angular! Moreover, their postures are fixed and single, completely unable to meet the diverse needs of all kinds of people.
In order to overcome these shortcomings, the prototype of the simulated sex doll, that is, the combined sex doll, was developed in the early 1990s. All parts of the doll’s body can be disassembled and assembled, so that it can assume different postures to meet the body position needs of different people.
In addition, their faces have also become beautiful, which to a certain extent caters for people’s aesthetic needs. It’s just that the details are still unsatisfactory, such as the skin is still hard, and it is not delicate and realistic enough.

Upgrade from the inside out
In the late 1990s, the skeletal performance, skin feel and facial appearance of sex dolls have all been greatly improved.
Japan has begun to try to make dolls with artificial bones, hoping that their postures can be more flexible and changeable, so as to bring a more realistic feeling to the user. However, this is really difficult to achieve. After all, human bones and joints are complex and flexible, and it is not easy to imitate.
In addition, people began to use high-grade medical non-toxic soft silicone or TPE materials to make sex dolls. These materials are more elastic to the touch. People even put batteries on the doll so that it can maintain a constant “body temperature” of 37°C for a certain period of time, making people indulge in the feeling of a real human hug!

In terms of appearance, the appearance of sex dolls has also undergone a qualitative leap. Their hair is completely made of real materials, and most of their faces are made of real AV actresses, and they have even reached the point of being fake.

Take a guess at the future
“Further improving the degree of simulation” should be the mainstream trend of the future development of sex dolls. Now sex dolls can simulate real people’s panting, body temperature and even the release of body fluids! Future sex dolls may be able to identify the user, flirt with the user, play sex games, and respond differently to the user’s different postures and positions…
