In which case would you buy a sex doll? The real psychology of sex doll buyers in different countries.

This is a true story. More and more artificial intelligence is applied to physical dolls to fill people’s loneliness. After graduation from college, I joined an AI adult doll company to sell dolls to foreigners. I have seen the deepest loneliness and the most painful humanity here.

At 7:30 in the morning, I woke up, dressed and washed, and ran to the office. The dormitory is only ten minutes away from where I work, through a deep alley, a small gray four-story building. Arriving at the factory, countless young women’s ‘bodies’ hang from steel frames wrapped in clear plastic bags. They have different complexions, all exquisite. After graduation from college, I was employed as a foreign trade clerk in this factory. My responsibility is to sell sex dolls to all over the world. Our product is sex doll, also called physical doll, a kind of sex toy. My parents died early. My grandparents raised me and Try every means to earn money for my college education. They are getting on in years and my wish is to make more money. The starting salary here is high, and there is commission after three months ‘probation. The factory also provides food and accommodation. It is a good condition for me.

Most people in our country only know the inflatable doll, while the physical doll is made of silicone or mixed material TPE, which has been popular in Europe, America and Japan for decades. The sex doll looks like a real person and is highly realistic in every aspect, with built-in metal skeletons, flexible joints and various poses. Doll shape is a variety too, weight, skin color, facial features, even hair, eye color, tattoos, nails and other features can be customized, the body can also heat, can be customized sound card, let the doll speak some simple language. Regular versions of the dolls are priced between 200 and 2,000 Euros, as well as high-end customised dolls, which can be moulted into the exact same doll as long as the customer takes a photo and lists the requirements.

The factory has also developed a kind of artificial intelligence doll that can move its head and limbs and respond to customers in English. It is similar to the intelligent robot, but the price is expensive, with the cheapest one costing 5,000 Euros. But dolls made in Asia are much cheaper than those made in the us and Europe. Across the factory floor, I walked to the office, opened my computer and checked my email. One of the first things I do every day is respond to bizarre questions from new customers: “do I get stuck?” “how hot can the doll get?” and “what is the maximum size of the doll’s breasts when it stands?”It was Andy’s email with the subject line: “this Christmas, I won’t be alone anymore.”

Andy is my first customer. He is an American. He is introverted and shy. A few months ago, I knew nothing about this industry. The factory sells 80% of its dolls abroad. In order to match the customer’s time, I often stayed in the office until midnight. After three months’ probation, I still got nothing. Is anyone really buying it? On the last day of my probation, I was so depressed that at 11 o ‘clock in the night, I was alone in front of the computer, with my hands constantly wiping my cheeks. One day, I saw a customer comment on facebook: “I’m in America. Can I have the doll mailed to me?” At that time, I was so excited that tears almost came out of my eyes. I quickly replied, “no problem, our customers come from all over the world, and we can send them by express.” Within a minute I received a reply: “I want that elf, QY1709.”

QY1709 is the product number. The doll is 160 cm tall, slim, with elf-like pointed ears and angel wings, like an anime character. “no problem. We have this in stock. We can ship it right away.” I said, He said, “are you sure the doll is exactly like the picture?” I answer: “of course same, if convenient, can video, the scene shows the product for you.” He refused: “you can record a video and send it to me.”I immediately recorded sex doll video, did not expect him to immediately pay the order. The price of this doll is 599 dollars, plus 200 dollars shipping cost, I have a little can’t believe, incredibly make the first order like this, hurriedly look for the express company. I met a lot of people when promoting dolls, they often chat on one or two words, just want to chat with me video, and some people even just add friends to send indecent video to me, disgusting and helpless.

This guest seemed to be different. I opened his homepage and his registered name was Andy. He was 20 years old. The occupation column says actor. The home page had only one photo, long hair, thin and gloomy. Maybe I don’t recognize faces. He looks like a picture of Jesus. The cost of the doll is around 300 Euros, and with accessories and other expenses, the sale of such a doll can bring in about 100 Euros, a 20 percent profit. After that, Andy asked me every day: “will the doll arrive today?” I sent him a screenshot of the logistics information, and he replied with a tearful expression. It was two weeks after Andy received the doll. He said he had a sofa in his bedroom for dolls. Before Christmas, he bought another doll, which was 168 centimeters tall and weighed 50 kilograms. The postage cost was more than 300 dollars.

Since then, Andy has been emailing me about his doll almost every day. He dressed the two dolls in all kinds of fashionable and beautiful clothes and sent me pictures of them every time he changed them into new clothes. Gradually, I got to know him. Andy has social phobia and is afraid to talk with others. Only in the online world can he feel at ease. However, he also has a desire to communicate with others and have real friends. The two dolls were his first steps. It suddenly occurred to me that Christmas would be in two days. Open Andy’s email. In the picture, two dolls are dressed in their Sunday clothes. Andy is sitting in the middle with a big smile on his face. It was the first time he had ever sent a picture of himself. I was a little relieved and giggled at the screen for a long time.

My front desk colleague trotted up to me and said sympathetically, “Airic is calling again.” Hearing this, I felt dizzy. Airic is my new client, German. His order is the largest one since I joined the company. It is a one-time order of 6 dolls, all of which are high-end customized, and each doll is about 3,000 Euros. Since Airic placed this order in early December, my pressure has become extremely heavy. Airic requires very high quality. He was not satisfied with the doll made of silicone, which was too heavy and easy to be stained with dust. He replaced silicone with mixed material TPE. He asked the factory to issue a certificate that it was new material and not recycled. Hair is specially specified, not conventional, skin color after many times of comparison, can not have a little color difference. He worked in the United States for many years, fluent in English, fluent on the phone, I did not have a chance to refute, can only apologize to solve the problem. Every time I answer Airic’s phone, I literally get butterflies in my stomach. After three weeks of repeated correction, the doll probably meets the requirements of Ariic, and the rest is matched with wigs and clothes, waiting for delivery. Over the phone, Ariic said, “Amy, I find something wrong with the doll. The distance between the two eyes is at least two millimeters short of what I asked you to do.”

I really didn’t pay attention to that. He was so good that he could see in the picture that the distance between the doll’s eyes was two millimeters different from the requirement. I was thinking about how to reply. Airic said, “please modify it as soon as possible. I will go to your factory to inspect the goods before delivery. The Spring Festival was approaching when Airic inspected the goods. He was tall, thin, white-haired, dressed in a suit and a black coat. Meet for the first time, everybody is good to him impression, but he asks to revise ceaselessly, whole factory is working overtime for his doll of a person. Factories usually offer holidays, and workers are anxious to go home to their families, but they have to stick to their jobs. It was the day before the Spring Festival, and the workers were ecstatic to go home and celebrate with their families.

Airic booked a plane ticket to Germany on New Year’s eve. My boss asked me to treat Mr. Airic well. Airic didn’t seem to know it was Chinese New Year. He asked me why there was no one at the factory today.”Tomorrow is the Chinese New Year,” I said. Airic looked at me and said shyly, “I’m sorry, Amy. I made it impossible for you to go home for the Spring Festival.”I shook my head and said it didn’t matter. Anyway, there were only grandparents in my family. I seldom went home these years. Mr. Airic bent his head for a moment and chatted with me about the past. As we stood face to face in the doll shop, Airic’s voice seemed to drift. When Airic was young, he was very good at his job. Soon after he and his wife got married, he was sent to the American branch office as a director. When he was busy, he could not go home once a year. He made a lot of money and missed a lot in those years. His son was born not in Germany, I know he is his father died, he has been busy busy,  wait to retire back to Germany, want to have a good family, enjoy your life with his wife, his wife has had breast cancer, died early and only son, as he was being sent overseas work, it is difficult to meet.

Airic looks at his family’s big house and several luxury cars in the garage. He finds that he has worked hard all his life and no one is around. His heart ached with grief as he remembered what his wife had looked like when she was young. So I took photos of my wife at several important stages in her life and customized these dolls. It suddenly dawned on me that all six sex dolls had been made to look like his wife. No wonder he didn’t allow any flaws. He stroked the dolls one by one and explained, “this is when we were first married. This is when she was pregnant, she became a little fat, smile and double chin, especially cute; This is her 30 years old, the corner of the eye has a little wrinkle…”Here, he stopped, his back to me, no longer speak, from his rapid panting figure, I guess he is crying. Later, Airic often wrote emails telling me about the doll. He would bathe the doll, put on new clothes, and push it to the park to bask in the sun. The doll is like his kin.

Airic’s order gave me a bit of a good name, and since then the number of clients has increased, selling at least a dozen dolls a month, and at most, nearly 50 dolls a month. Over time, I was able to make quick decisions about whether I was a bored guy with an axe to pick or a client who really wanted to buy a doll, just by checking an email or chatting on social media. In 2018, I received a customized inquiry from a Belgian customer. The other party sent a picture of a girl aged about 3 or 4 years old, with blonde hair, red skin and white skin. I accepted the order and asked the production department to produce as soon as possible. In order to crack down on paedophilia, many countries in Europe have banned the import of children’s versions of the dolls. If they are found out in the customs, the factory will be blacklisted and possibly imprisoned. Hearing this, the joy of receiving orders instant collapse, I was very depressed, had to send a long email, to the customer explanation, apology, return the deposit.

Two days later, someone added me as a friend on Watsapp. As soon as I added him, he asked to chat with me on facebook. Since did this job, I often encounter just added good friend to ask video chat, this kind of person is either abnormal or nymphomaniac, normally I block immediately, but the name of this person I feel like to have seen in where, think carefully, it is that Belgian client. I hesitated and answered video. Video, is a middle-aged foreign couple, two people smiling and waving to say “hi”. See E-mail, they say, two people canvassed the Belgian law, found that there is no limit to the young child doll to import this one, thank my cautious at the same time, they also very hate those pedophilia, in order to let me not to remorseless logic, especially video chat with me, let me know why they want to customize a young baby. In video, the couple pushed open a door in their home and I saw a lovely room with familiar cartoon characters such as rabbit, Snow White, Alice and Cinderella on the walls and ceiling, and a pink children’s bed filled with stuffed toys. In addition, there are many photos on the wall, most of them are a little girl and the couple. The little girl, the picture of the custom doll. The couple explained that the girl was their only daughter, who died in a car accident a few years ago. For a long time they had been missing their beautiful daughter when they opened their eyes. They also considered having another child, which was unrealistic given their age and physical condition. One day, my wife came across my facebook page and was immediately fascinated by how many beautiful dolls looked like real people. After more than a month of consideration, the couple decided to make a doll to look like their daughter. I told my boss about the Belgian client in detail and he finally agreed to make them custom dolls. I did not let the production department immediately starts to make, but the couple should be carefully checked and the child’s details, also let them recording to me, you are speaking to her daughter to give them the custom children’s sound card, though not smart baby, can’t reply, can only say that some such as: “dad, mom, I love you, I’m hungry, I am happy” so simple words, but I believe, can hear daughter again, they must be very happy. When the couple received the doll, they communicated with me on video, and both of them cried in the screen: “this is just like our daughter, so lovely.”

I feel happy for them. On second thought, no matter how much the couple loved the doll, she would never grow up. The couple will grow old, but their children will stay at this age forever. The couple could not see that their daughter grew taller and taller, and one day surpassed her mother and even her father. She could not be seen carrying the book out of the school; Can’t see her leading another companion home, hand in hand into the church…Think of here, I also some sad. By the end of 2018, the factory’s business is getting better and better, not only doubling the export volume of foreign trade, but also surging domestic sales. The factory hired two new foreign trade staff, I was promoted to director, busy every day.

I think of the day when I sent Mr Airic home. Because it was still early, Airic invited me to have coffee in the cafe of the airport. It was the afternoon of the New Year’s eve, and there were few passengers in the airport. Airic and I were the only two people in the cafe. Airic was lost in thought and did not speak for a long time. I dared not disturb him and sat quietly with him. After I don’t know how long, he suddenly whispered, “so lonely.”At that moment, I seemed to be touched by a cold hand. The image of white-haired Airic sitting quietly with six sex dolls in the living room suddenly flashed in my mind. For the first time in my life, I wanted to go back to my grandparents, get married quickly and have more children.
