Sex doll maker helps grieving men by recreating dead wives in silicone

Sex doll maker Jade Stanley says her customers are 'lonely' and use them for company

A Sex Doll maker says most of her customers are buying them for ‘comfort’ rather than sex. Jade Stanley, 36, believes ‘loneliness’ is the driving force behind her ‘flourishing’ business, Sex Doll Official, which she only started last year above her tanning salon. It began with a line of rental dolls – which come with removable vaginas and cost £345 a week – but it quickly expanded into a range of realistic sex dolls that look like famous male and female pornstars. Jade says she now customises dolls to look like dead partners as part of a special bereavement service. She told ‘I customise requests for different eye colour, hair, body shape, tattoos and piercings. ‘Any kind of customisation you can think of I can do and I can replicate the look of somebody else.’

But Jade draws the line at creating replicas of living people, and tells her customers that they must get written permission from the person in question before she will consider it. The mum-of-four says its ‘absolutely fantastic’ that people find comfort with her dolls, but suggested their demand is a reflection of modern society. She said: ‘The problem these days is that social media has made people so isolated. Anxiety levels are also heightened. ‘You can understand why loneliness is such an issue in our society and why people would find comfort in a doll.’ She added: ‘If these dolls can bring comfort to somebody then I think that’s absolutely fantastic.’ Jade said one of the biggest things that has surprised her since setting up Sex DollOfficial is that people don’t use the dolls just for ‘pornographic reasons’.

She said: ‘The comfort element has been absolutely overwhelming. I think it’s so good, it brings a different spin on it.’ Jade says some of these ‘comfort only’ customers do not want their dolls to have vaginas. She said: ‘It’s very normal. They want them to keep the bed warm or just be a presence in their home.’ Jade buys her dolls from Asia and sells her basic models on for £1,290, while her range of customisable pornstar dolls cost £4,950. The booming sex toy industry will reportedly be worth an estimated £38 billion by 2020, with demand for lifelike Sex Doll set to soar.
