Touch it and you are no longer sin­gle

The Jakarta Post - - HEADLINES -

BEI­JING: China has shared bikes, um­brel­las and bas­ket­balls, but one com­pany is tak­ing the coun­try’s love af­fair with the “shar­ing econ­omy” to an erotic ex­treme with a line of rentable sex dolls.

Touch, a Chi­nese sex-prod­ucts re­tailer, on Thurs­day launched its “Shared Girl­friend” ser­vice in Bei­jing, fea­tur­ing Chi­nese, Rus­sian, Korean and Hong Kong ver­sions, as well as an Ama­zon-like “Won­der Woman” who comes armed with sword and shield.

Like many of China’s pi­o­neer­ing shared-econ­omy prod­ucts, the life-sized sil­i­con se­duc­tresses are re­served via a phone app for up to a week a time.

Touch, which is based in the south­east­ern city of Xi­a­men, then de­liv­ers them to cus­tomers who can also pre-se­lect dif­fer­ent cloth­ing out­fits and hair styles, plus ac­cou­trements like hand­cuffs and whips.

Clients can even have their date “warmed up” be­fore de­liv­ery and, for an ex­tra fee, have them equipped with a de­vice that voices var­i­ous sounds when man-han­dled.

They are avail­able for short-term com­pan­ion­ship start­ing at 298 yuan ($45) per night, but users must first trans­fer an 8,000 yuan de­posit that is re­funded af­ter­ward. Touch touts the dolls as feel­ing like “real hu­mans.” “They have per­fect bod­ies, are to­tally sub­mis­sive and can meet the needs of the sin­gle home boy,” a com­pany state­ment said.

“With one touch of a key, you are no longer sin­gle!”
