Can Child Dolls Keep Pedophiles from Offending?
–One man thinks so, and he’s been manufacturing them for clients for more than ten years.–
The Atlantic Daily Jan 11, 2016
…Trottla, a company that produces life-like child sex dolls. For more than a decade, Trottla has shipped anatomically-correct imitations of girls as young as five to clients around the world.
“We should accept that there is no way to change someone’s fetishes,” [President] Takagi insisted. “I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically. It’s not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire…
…In Japan, where many have animist Shinto beliefs, the dolls have a complicated status. “In Shinto,” Takagi said, “everything has a soul. Even if you don’t want the dolls anymore, you can’t abandon them. There is a special ceremony that is performed for them at a shrine. It’s like a ceremony for a dead person. Since dolls have a human form, they must be treated as such.”
He described a recent case in which a client who needed to get rid of a doll called, requesting his help. “He wanted me to dispose of it,” Takagi remembered. “But, he didn’t say ‘dispose.’ The phrase he used was ‘send back home.’”
