The South Korean Ban on Sex Dolls is Over


Seoul has joyous tidings for South Koreans who found their Christmas haul lacking a little je ne sais quoi: After years of being stymied by customs, the AP reports that citizens are now free to go online and order themselves an imported sex doll. The move ends years of debate over government interference in private life; the AP notes that while no specific ban on foreign sex dolls exists, customs officials have long seized the dolls under a portion of the law that bans the import of goods that “harm the country’s beautiful traditions and public moral.” Importers complained and took their case to courts, most of which agreed with them and ordered customs to release the sex dolls, saying they are used in people’s private spaces and don’t undermine human dignity.

The customs service said it will still ban the import of child-like sex dolls or others embodying certain people. It said other countries like the United States, Australia, and the UK also ban child-like sex dolls. While the decision reflects South Korea’s slow yet gradual moves to restrict state interference in personal lives, some women’s rights and conservative organizations will likely again voice their opposition to the use of sex dolls. They say they deepen sexual objectification of women and undermine public morality.

  1. The doll (top photo) does not look very life-like to me. And what’s with the Basic Instinct depiction?

    Given the rise in feminism, the current state of male/female relations, the propensity for women on dating apps to swipe right on only about 10% of men and for men, in general, to find marriage and dating a poor bargain filled with traps and pitfalls, I see the sex doll industry booming.

  2. Years ago, I got stuck with another mortgage because I tried house flipping in Canada (real estate is NOT the same as in America). So I worked 2 jobs, one of which was cleaning for a large cleaning company. One of the customers was mentally disabled because of a car accident and he had a sex doll. One day my team mate and I entered his apartment and the doll was missing its head. My team mate quipped “I guess he had a fight with his wife!”

    “When is the Kamala Harris sex doll coming out? (I hear it’s going to be a budget model.)”

    They use the same tech as Cabbage Patch eating dolls do, also only in the mouth.
