Touch it and you are no longer single
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!”
