When Did Sex Dolls Begin

Sex dolls are purely designed as a channel to relieve men. As their name suggests they are for sex. But, have you wondered what brings this idea to life? Who was behind the idea of producing sex dolls? Was there a problem that needs to be addressed by making love dolls?

According to Norbert Lenz, a journalist, sex dolls started from a top-secret mission in 1940 entitled “Borghild Project.” It was inspired by SS chief Heinrich Himmler.

Borghild is a “field-hygienic project” that is initiated by Himmler to address the growing problem of syphilis. According to him, their troops were suffering unnecessary losses due to unsafe and unprotected sex with prostitutes.

“The greatest danger in Paris are the wide-spread and uncontrolled whores, picking by clients in bars, dancehalls and other places. It is our duty to prevent soldiers from risking their health, just for the sake of a quick adventure.”

Himmler assigned his commander-in-chief SS Dr. Joachim Mrurgowsky in charge for the project. In July 1941, when Adolf Hitler’s army attacked Russia, ambitious Danish SS-Doctor Olen Hannussen took over the project from Mrurgowsky.

Hannussen was more enthusiastic to finish the project. The team wanted to finish it to stop their troop from visiting “infection herds” or “loose women.”

Dr. Rudolf Chargeheimer was also involved in the project. He once wrote a letter to Hannussen about the struggles they encountered in making the doll, in particular, about aesthetics.

“Sure thing, purpose and goal of the dolls is to relieve our soldiers. They have to fight and not be on the browl or mingle with ‘foreign womenfolk’. However: no real men will prefer a doll to a real woman, until our technicians meet the following quality standards.”

He addressed the issue by proposing that the dolls need to have:

  1. Synthetic flesh that feels like the real flesh
  2. The doll’s body should be as agile and moveable as the real body
  3. The doll’s organ should be realistic

Borghild‘s presentation in Berlin was a success. Himmler ordered 50 pieces and the project was considered to a special production facility because its initial location was too small to cope with the order.

Unfortunately, Himmler dropped his plans after a week and cut the budget. In the beginning of 1942, the whole project was halted.

All the construction documents were returned to the SS-Hygiene-Institute. Since then it was never heard. Lenz believed that if it was kept in Tschakerts studio at the German Hygiene-Museum in Dresden, then it was destroyed in February 1945.

Who Created The First Sex Doll?

Aside from Lenz, author Graeme Donald also discovered the Nazi Germany sex doll project. “While I was researching this, I came across references to Nazi sex dolls and found out that Hitler had ordered them to be made,” he told The Sun (via The Vintage News). “As ever, more troops were laid low by disease than by bullets. Syphilis was a problem Hitler was aware of and he was rumored to have suffered from it himself.”

This is the reason why some considered Hitler to be the inventor of the first sex dolls. There were photographs rescued from a trash that many took as evidence about this claim.

However, one should take these reports with a grain of salt because of the lack of evidence. According to the report, Lenz’s existence was questioned because there were no proofs that he existed. Also, no employee at the German Hygiene Museum recalled the said project.

So, is Hitler the father of the blow-up sex dolls? We could never say. In fact, some considered the Borghild Project a hoax.

Meanwhile, another source claimed that sex dolls are invented by the Dutch sailors in the 17th century. They were isolated during the voyage so they brought masturbators dolls.

French referred to these dolls as dame de voyage and the Spanish called it dame de viaje. The Dutch sold some of those dolls to Japanese people during the Rangaku period. They called it “Dutch wives.”

The production of the human simulacra took a leap forward in the late 20th century by 1970 the manufacturers used vinyl, latex and silicone for a degree of realism.

The evolution of sex dolls has improved over time. Today, there are a lot of life-sized and life like sex dolls in the market. Those dolls look and feel natural. In fact, a number of men were so pleased with it that they turned to rubber romance.

Yes, there were men who treated their sex dolls as their rubber girlfriend or wife because they just don’t see these toys as objects. A Japanese man named Masayuki Ozaki finds love in his life-size silicone sex doll named Mayu. Another man, named Davecat also considered himself married to his rubber love, Sidore.

Japan also has some Anime Sex Pillows called Dakimakura that are really amazing and have a lot of variety to them.
