Eerily realistic sex doll can smile, moan — and even hold a conversation

The next generation of sex dolls are a hot commodity thanks to the coronavirus.

A new, eerily realistic “sex robot” that can blink, smile, moan, get goosebumps and hold a conversation has been flying off the shelves since the coronavirus struck.

The dolls, sold by Sex Doll Genie and manufactured by Gynoid, are silicone-based and, according to SGD founders Janet Stevenson and her husband Amit, look and feel like a real human.

“There are lonely middle-aged men who don’t necessarily want to stroll through the dating minefield again, there are handicapped and disabled folks for whom sex dolls are convenient and non-judgmental companions, then there are couples like us who wanna add another dimension to their love-life without additional emotional baggage,” according to the website. “Also, increasingly there are folks who just think that a sex doll suits their lifestyle better.”

However, they are now being used by people worried about COVID-19 and couples. Since the pandemic, the Florida-based company saw orders spike by more than 51% during February and March — when lockdowns began in the US and other countries.

“They are the most realistic on the market. … They say 90% of the sex is in the mind — when the doll you are making love to looks so real, it does indeed make sex more pleasurable and gratifying,” Amit told Daily Star Online.

The high-end dolls — who come complete with a full body and equipped with artificial intelligence — start at around $6,000 but can go as high as $8,000.

“They’re hand-made. If you look at the video, you can see the veins in the arms or in the chest,” Amit told the Star. “It’s pretty crazy, I have some videos of their recent order, and you look at these videos and you think, she could just blink any second now, it looks that real.”
