Sex dolls for rent sparks mass outrage
A COMPANY offering sex dolls for rent has withdrawn its services after complaints about hygiene.
The company, Touch, had begun offering five different sex doll types for daily or longer- term rent but quickly drew complaints and criticism.
The company said in a statement it “sincerely apologised for the negative impact” of the concept.
But the firm stressed sex was “not vulgar” and said it would keep working towards more people enjoying it.
Touch, based in Beijing, said the rental service had operated for two days and had garnered a lot of interest and requests.
“We prepared ten dolls for the trial operation,” a company spokesperson said. “But it’s really hard in China, there has been a lot of controversy with the police over the issue.”
The company had offered the sex dolls for a daily fee of £ 34.
The models on offer were marketed as Chinese, Korean and Russian women, with one also modelled on the movie character Wonder Woman, complete with a sword and shield.
In its statement, the company said it would in future pay more attention to its “social duty”, and would actively promote a “healthier and more harmonious sex lifestyle”.
