Posted on August 23 2022

The variety of modern love dolls is impressive. Nowadays, you can purchase Asian Sex Dolls, Big Boobs or Big Booty Sex Dolls, Anime Sex Dolls, Teen or Milf Sex Dolls, etc. The list is endless, as well as the number of functions and benefits these dolls serve. But have you ever wondered how they entered into our lives? 

The history of sex dolls is a tale social historians will certainly unravel in years to come. Dolls that initially resembled leather puppets became high-quality life-like robots over a couple of centuries. 

Apparently, the technologies behind love dolls show no sign of slowing down with more and more realistic dolls being released. So fasten your seatbelts and take a trip down memory lane to unbox these creations.

First Appearance of Sex Dolls

Though the original inventor of the sex doll still remains unknown, we have a few ideas regarding their origins. 

Some of the earliest love dolls are attributed to Dutch sailors in the 17th century. The poor, isolated sailors used dolls made from old sewn cloth to alleviate sexual tension during long sea voyages. Such masturbatory dolls were a direct predecessor to today's love dolls.

Later after that, the dolls began gaining popularity. Have you ever heard about the term "Dutch wives"? It refers to the Rangaku period, during which the Dutch sold some of these dolls to Japanese people. Japanese still use the term to refer to sex dolls.

The first recorded appearance of the sex doll dates back to 1908 when psychiatrist Iwan Bloch published the book "The Sexual Lifetime of Our Time."

Was Adolf Hitler Responsible for the First Inflatable Sex Dolls?

There is some interesting evidence that a possible contributor to the inflatable sex doll industry was none other than Adolf Hitler!

It was in the 1940s when the German forces first occupied France. It’s important to mention that wars are mainly men’s affairs. Full of strengths and energy, young soldiers simply couldn’t help themselves. Prostitutes, who they picked up in dance halls, restaurants and bars, were frequently used to satisfy their needs. 

The widespread and uncontrolled presence of French prostitutes led to numerous issues. It kept many of the Nazi troops from their frontline duties. But the greatest danger was that soldiers risked their health for the sake of a quick adventure. Many of them ended up with STDs.

Sex Doll Operation

When SS leader Heinrich Himmler informed Hitler in a letter of all the potential health risks posed to Nazi soldiers by such fleeting romantic relationships with French women, the so-called "Borghild Project" was born.

Adolf Hitler reacted immediately, and the greatest designers of that time began to act. Inspired by the true beauty of Hungarian starlet Kathe von Nagy, they aimed to make the silicone doll based on her looks. But the lady turned down this offer.

Hitler agreed to the proposal for the Aryan blonde and blue-eyed 'gynoid' dolls, which were the ideal size for troops' backpacks.

The Failure of the "Borghild Project"

When manufacturers finished the production and Nazi soldiers finally tested the sex dolls, Adolf Hitler ordered fifty of the creations to supply German soldiers. However, the project wasn't that successful. Soldiers refused to carry the dolls because they worried that they would be mocked if captured by the British. 

An interesting fact: Graeme Donald discovered Hitler's secretive "Borghild Project" while researching the history of the Barbie doll, invented by Americans Ruth and Elliot Handler. Unfortunately, a bomb in Dresden destroyed the factory where the sex dolls for Nazi troops were made.

The Development of the Sex Doll Industry

Since the 1950s, the sex doll industry took off and began developing at the speed of light. As you may guess, Japan was the first country to commercialize it. 

Vinyl and rubber were the primary materials of the first-generation dolls. The manufactured materials also contained many carcinogenic compounds, such as vinyl chlorides. Once the dangers of these products were revealed, manufacturers took them off the market.

At first, the doll's shape barely simulated the structure of the human body, which was rough and round. The body skin was nothing more than hard plastic. 

Also, the first life-like sex dolls were of low quality. One had to pump them up before use. The problems of constant air leaks and cracks made them impossible to use for a long time. 

The late 1980s was the time for latex dolls with more realistic eyes, hands, feet, and slightly textured hair to appear on the market. Although they weren't that realistic regarding touch and styling, they were at least human-like. 

By the middle of the 1990s, manufacturers introduced combined dolls. Though they had a certain ability to pose, the torso was inflexible.

In the late 1990s, with the progress of production technology and the increasing market space, more realistic love dolls entered the market. New brands began using medical soft silicone, TPE materials, and PVC materials. Those sex dolls were the size of a real person, their joints were more flexible, and they could perform many actions and postures. 

Modern Sex Dolls

Today China, Japan, Europe, and the United States are the main manufacturers of love dolls. Since 2010, there have been more high-quality brand companies in the domestic entity doll industry, such as WM Dolls, YL Dolls, Sino Dolls, Sanhui Dolls, etc.

After numerous experiments and attempts to create the most human-like love doll, manufacturers have increased their research and development efforts to model new skin materials and body proportions. The subsequent creations have proved that this adventure is successful.

Modern love dolls are able to fulfill your deepest desires and satisfy your craziest needs. Whether you prefer vaginal, anal, or oral sex, loud moaning sounds, shrugging shoulders, implanted human hair, articulated hand skeletons, or built-in heating, sex dolls of the new era will make all your dreams come true!
