This Man Makes Child Sex Dolls To Stop Paedophiles From Harming Children


Late last year, an open letter from a self-confessed paedophile went viral. Admitting that his sexual attraction to children was something he had always had – and couldn’t help – ‘Todd’ explained that this was not the same as being a child molester: that he had never touched a child, had never used child pornography, and never would. 

Speaking to Salon, he said:

“I’ve been stuck with the most unfortunate of sexual orientations, a preference for a group of people who are legally, morally and psychologically unable to reciprocate my feelings and desires.”

While we as a society consider paedophiles as monsters, there’s a rising community of people who have sexual feelings towards children, but are determined never to harm a child, and never to commit a crime. People like ‘Todd’, who asked that we “treat us like people with a massive handicap we must overcome, not as a monster.”

Another such man – Shin Takagi – has found a solution that he hopes will help paedophiles from acting on their impulses. Of the opinion that “it’s not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire”, Shin makes anatomically correct child sex dolls, which he has shipped to clients across the globe.

Speaking to Atlantic, he explained:

“We should accept that there is no way to change someone’s fetishes. I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically.”


Experts are conflicted on whether this is a safe solution. While some argue that access to these dolls could be a safe outlet for paedophilic desires, others are concerned that using them could reinforce – and aggravate – an already dangerous sense of frustration.

Tagaki, at least, believes his dolls are having a positive effect:

“I often receive letters from buyers. The letters say, ‘Thanks to your dolls, I can keep from committing a crime.’ I hear statements like that from doctors, prep school teachers—even celebrities.”

Do you think these dolls are a good way to stop paedophiles from acting on their impulses? Or will they only aggravate the problem?
