Sex dolls are some of the most fascinating entertainment toys of the 21st Century. Nevertheless, they are still clouded in a ton of mystery, and very few people know all about them. That said, here are some of the most captivating and unique facts about sex dolls:

Sex Dolls in Japan are also known as ‘Dutch Wives’
Did you know that Dutch sailors invented what many people would consider the first sex doll torso in the world? Being months at sea, they craved female companionship. As such, they fashioned cloth puppets that the French famously termed as ‘dame de voyage.’
Unfortunately, the dolls weren’t created from the silky-smooth silicone material that we used today. Back in the day, sex dolls were manufactured primarily from leather. But the men were so horny that they just wanted an item to release their sexual tension.
In fact, the sex dolls were so famous that the Dutch traded them to Japanese sailors. And that’s why the term Dutch wives is still used by the Japanese today!

Interestingly, technosexuals and iDollators treat their dolls as goddesses. Even better than how some men treat their wives!
