Sex doll creator defends creations in hopes it will stop pedophilia crimes


#1

Japanese businessman Shin Takagi believes his line of custom toys are part of a “life-saving" cause, but the production of these anatomically-correct, child-sized dolls has been met with overwhelming negativity and outrage.

This has got to be the most disgusting thing I have ever heard of in my entire life! Does this guy honestly think this is going to stop pedophiles from acting on their evil desires? If so, he is wrong. It would only encourage them to commit more crimes against children. After all, the more one does an evil act, the more hardened one’s conscience becomes to it.

I saw this story a few days ago online, I could not believe someone is actually creating dolls like this!!

Im not sure how they came to the conclusion that just because a pedophile has a sex toy, he will somehow stop trying to lure real kids, blow up sex dolls and other sex toy devices have been around for decades, but has not done anything to stop adult on adult assaults.

A really bad idea, but I have a feeling they will sell quite a few!

Exactly! I think it will only encourage sexual assaults on children because for one thing, the more you do a sinful thing, the more hardened your conscience becomes. For another, I think it will only desensitize them to the act and make them feel like the act is okay.

Please where are your citations for proof that this will make for more child rape.

I will play the devils advocate. Sure this is really disgusting but sometimes things don’t go down how you think they will. For instance public sex offender registries actually increase the rate of reoffence because marginalized and stressed offenders have less to loose than those who can carve out a decent life without being harassed. I can give you sources for those studies if you’d like.

The truth is no one really knows what this would do. There is some evidence that porn consumption MAY decrease rapes: slate.com/articles/arts/everyday_economics/2006/10/how_the_web_prevents_rape.html

But I don’t really trust that without it being replicated and controlled for other variables. But it is clear that porn does not massively increase sex crime in a visible way.

But let’s get to my point. I would rather these child sex dolls be available and used by thousands if it meant even one less child was injured. The ends justify the means. If you disagree tell me that you would rather the opposite outcome.

This is all assuming it does decrease offences which we don’t know. All I am saying is that if it were to work (which it may) wouldn’t it not be so bad?

Whether pornography consumption is a reliable correlate of sexually aggressive behavior continues to be debated. Meta-analyses of experimental studies have found effects on aggressive behavior and attitudes. That pornography consumption correlates with aggressive attitudes in naturalistic studies has also been found. Yet, no meta-analysis has addressed the question motivating this body of work: Is pornography consumption correlated with committing actual acts of sexual aggression? 22 studies from 7 different countries were analyzed. Consumption was associated with sexual aggression in the United States and internationally, among males and females, and in cross-sectional and longitudinal studies. Associations were stronger for verbal than physical sexual aggression, although both were significant. The general pattern of results suggested that violent content may be an exacerbating factor.

My emphases.

The study “A Meta-Analysis of Pornography Consumption and Actual Acts of Sexual Aggression in General Population Studies” published in the Journal of Communication found that “….the association for physical sexual aggression, although smaller than the association for verbal sexual aggression, was still positive and significant. Pornography consumption was associated with an increased probability of the use or threat of force to obtain sex.”

This latest study from Indiana University says that “the accumulated data leave little doubt that, on the average, individuals who consume pornography more frequently are more likely to hold attitudes conducive to sexual aggression and engage in actual acts of sexual aggression than individuals who do not consume pornography or who consume pornography less frequently.”

This guy is daft. Once sexuality and sexual morals are brought up, it seems that people toss reasoning out the window. The dolls will only make the pedophiles yearn for “the real thing” all the more. I thought Japan’s schools made their citizens smarter than this. May God protect the children.


#7

I don’t know how western society can object to this. We now hold that sexual inclinations are morally neutral. The only object we can muster to pedophilia is that children can’t give consent. In this case, since it isn’t a person but an object, what is the basis for objection?

Please note I’m not saying I have this opinion. I’m just pointing out the inconsistency of modern morality.

Interestingly, I just read an article containing, among a long list of other problems (including aversion to marriage, divorce rates, inability to have pleasurable sex, sadomasochistic sex and others) the following tidbit:

As a father, I’m going to have trouble sleeping after reading that article


#10

I wonder how many of these child like dolls he has already produced and sold. I find this very disturbing.


#11

I see what you are saying and on some previous threads about pedophilia, some people do believe this will eventually be accepted by this hedonistic society, I can see where they are coming from, after all, you cant have such a sexually immoral society (when it comes to just about any other fetish that are promoted and encouraged), but have one area (pedophilia) that is still immoral.

I do believe its possible (if our society continues down the same immoral road as they are on now), pedophilia will become accepted, at least to some degree, its only common sense, for those that disagree, why would literally everything else be accepted in the sexual perversion category, but still not this one thing?

I’ll raise you

hawaii.edu/PCSS/biblio/articles/1961to1999/1999-effects-of-pornography.html

One of many studies showing no effect on reported rape or decreased reports after the proliferation of pornpgraphy. This one shows a decrease in child sexual abuse after increases in porn availability.

My point was not to trust these studies because we can both dig up ones that support either side. It may help, it may hurt, but if it were to help would a reasonable person not be in favor?

We can argue this into the ground but the level of conflicting studies indicate that the association, if there is one, is so weak it is high undetectable

I can give you more citations if you’d like

Just looking at the doll gives you a sick, creepy feeling. By making such a thing, it’s promoting the perversion, as another post said. And it will only make the person desire even more to go out and find himself a real child. If this is supposedly a way to “help” these people, they couldn’t be further from giving them the help they need by doing this.


#14

Considering that the adult version of these have been around for decades and many of those men haven’t pursued relationships with real women…


#15

Pitiful really. The adult dolls, and even more so the children dolls now. Can’t find a real woman to be with. Just pitiful. And corny, to put it very lightly.


#16

I’m kind of not surprised that the creator is Japanese. I don’t want to say anything against Japan, but their culture sure seems to express positive feelings towards pedophilia.


#17

Oh, I see. It makes sense, then, that someone would make a pedophilia doll in that country. I hope a similar thing doesn’t happen in America.
