Japanese company manufactures lifelike child sex dolls

The sex dolls are aimed at pedophiles

A Japanese company that produces lifelike and anatomically-correct sex dolls claims that they prevent pedophiles from offending.
Shin Takagi has been shipping the dolls to clients around the world for over a decade.
Takagi told the Atlantic that he is helping people express their desires legally. “We should accept that there is no way to change someone’s fetishes,” he said.
“I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically. It’s not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire.”
While treatments for pedohilia exist, a study by the Mayo Clinic61074-4/abstract|target="_blank") found that treatments do not change a pedophiles basic sexual orientation towards children.
Takagi says that the dolls he creates (sent mostly to "men living alone") save children from sexual abuse.
“I often receive letters from buyers. The letters say, ‘Thanks to your dolls, I can keep from committing a crime. I hear statements like that from doctors, prep school teachers—even celebrities," he said.
Psychologist and sexologist Michael Seto, told the Atlantic that there are two differnt types of pedophiles.
"For some paedophiles, access to artificial child pornography or to child sex dolls could be a safer outlet for their sexual urges, reducing the likelihood that they would seek out child pornography or sex with real children," he explains.
“For others, having these substitutes might only aggravate their sense of frustration.”
