What's the Deal with Sex Dolls? (Part 1)
Show Notes

If you can't love the one you want, love the one you can purchase and completely customize online... that's how the song goes, right? This episode we peel back layer after horrifying layer of the world of lifelike sex dolls, including the long and storied history of "dames de voyage", how your friendly 1980s bachelor party blow up doll became the uncanny valley creature called RealDoll and who are the men (and women) buying these silicon sirens.

There's a lot to unpack here, that's why we're doing our first-ever two part series for Impolite Society. Join us as we dig into where sex dolls came from, how sex dolls became popular and what it's like to purchase, live with and love a silicon sex doll.
