Sales of Sex Dolls See Rapid Increase During Lockdown

Some people have seen the lockdown as an opportunity to master another skill. Some are learning how to play a musical instrument while others are mastering a new language. However, there is a new interest that is taking the attention of a lot of people in Australia– hyper-realistic sex dolls. 

People who are in lockdown are taking interest in human-like silicone dolls that could mimic the human body’s temperature. The sales of these hyper-realistic love dolls are increasing now that a lot of people are isolating themselves amid the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreover, the sex doll industry has witnessed rapid growth as opportunities for social interaction decrease. In fact, one major sex doll distributor even revealed that its orders increased by 35 percent ever since the stay in place orders began in March.

Ryan James, the owner of the sex doll manufacturing company Southern Treasures said that people do not have the capability to socialize as much as they should be. That includes those people who chose to remain single as well as those who normally go out to meet people.

Moreover, James noted that hyper-realistic sex dolls are proven to be a popular companion during the cold winter months. The reason for this is that such dolls can warm up their owners’ body temperature. In fact, a lot of people opt to cuddle and sleep with such sex dolls rather than having their room’s heater running all night long, James said. 

Hyper-Realistic Sex Dolls and Their Features

Most thermoplastic elastomer or TPE sex dolls are imported from China. Their skin is made up of a mixture of melted rubber and plastic properties. This combination provides the sex dolls with the feel of soft human skin.

High-end sex dolls can cost up to $3000. These dolls even have imperfections such as skin blemishes and pores, making them even more realistic. 

According to James, the most popular doll that his company has manufactured is named Danae. This doll sells online for $3,100. 

Describing Danae the sex doll, James said that she has tan skin and blonde hair. She is also wearing an army outfit.

James also said that the said sex doll is very fit with a sporty physique and C-cup boobs. 

Now, Southern Treasures are now beginning to maintain a local stockpile of sex dolls on hand at their facility in Sydney. This way, they will be able to cater to their customers no matter how high the demands are. 

Sex Toys For Women Also Grew in Demand During Lockdown

Moreover, it is not only the female sex dolls and sex toys designed for men that have grown in popularity during the global pandemic. In fact, the female market for sex toys has also increased in terms of sales. In addition, make love dolls are becoming equally popular as the female ones. 

According to the Southern Treasures owner, sex dolls and sex toys are a taboo topic. However, as time goes by, they will begin to become accepted by society.

James also said that people are slowly realizing that relationships are not for everyone. Some of the Southern Treasures customers even said that they have already given up on finding someone that they could be with for the rest of their lives. In addition, James noted that people do not seem to have the time or the drive to look for someone who could be their company. For this reason, something that could provide them with a bit of comfort and sexual satisfaction is good enough for them. 

However, a research paper published recently by the Australian Psychological Society emphasized that relationships with real human beings are still crucial for good mental health, regardless if there are synthetic alternatives. 

The paper also said that everyone is different with regards to how they are going to respond to restrictions on socializing and person to person contact. Experiencing loneliness and the ways of coping up also differ from one person to another. This means that some people enjoy isolating at home while some are struggling with no in-person social contact.

But if there is one thing that everyone has in common, it is the fact that they need social relationships in order to maintain good mental health. For this reason, it is vital to maintain a particular level of contact with people’s social networks.

Maintaining this social contact comes in different forms. It can be as simple as calling a friend to share one’s experience. People can also use videoconferencing technology in order to check in with a member of their family. People can also spend some quality time with the people that they are living with.

There are a lot of ways that people can connect with their social networks. However, no one can deny the fact that not everyone has social networks or a family that they could spend time with online. For this reason, sex dolls could indeed serve a purpose of keeping their owner’s company and ease their loneliness.

However, the fact that sex dolls are still a sensitive topic to society still remains. However, people need to accept the fact that sex dolls are here to stay and they can no longer do anything about it.

Furthermore, the global COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the lockdowns that it caused, has allowed people to discover the things that they cannot do during normal times. In fact, the polling and research platform CivicScience conducted a research survey about the use of sex dolls and sex toys in the US. It found that out of 6,000 adult individuals in the US, more than a quarter have been using sex toys more ever since the pandemic began.

But of those who participated in the survey, a total of 26 percent admitted that they are using sex toys more often ever since they went into isolation. Therefore, the global COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdowns that it caused has allowed the sex doll industry to become more popular than ever.
