South Korea’s Lifting of Its Ban on Imported Sex Dolls Comes Right in the Midst of the Holidays

Christmas might be the king of the West, but in South Korea this week, they've placed the “holla” in “holiday.” More than 51 million people in this East Asian republic are surely enjoying the holiday celebrations of the government's yuletide yank of the ban on sex dolls.

If you're looking for an amorous, inanimate item to present at Christmas, Santa has made an appearance with a device with which giftees can perform “Baby, It's Cold Outside.” For those longing for Christmas hugs from an inflated, inorganic form, it’s the First No “L”—for “Not Living.”

From the New York Post:

“In a statement released Monday, the Korea Customs Service said it would implement a revised policy on life-size adult sex dolls.

“While there are no formal laws banning imported sex dolls, thousands of the items were previously seized by customs officers citing a clause forbidding imported products that ‘harm the country’s beautiful traditions and public morals.’”

Similar to batteries for randy robots, court conflicts were also required:

“Importers subsequently took several cases to court, where it was determined that the dolls are used in private spaces and thus do not undermine public dignity.”

The importation of certain dolls is still prohibited if they resemble specific individuals or those who are underage.

One bigwig in the world of erotica slammed the delay in the legalization of this allowance:

“Lee Sang-jin, the former head of … an online outlet for sex doll importer Carenshare Co., called the decision ‘reasonable’ but a ‘bit late’ after the government allegedly wasted taxpayer funds fighting the importers’ lawsuits in court.

“‘We thought our people’s rights to seek happiness and use [sex dolls] in their private lives have been restricted by the state,’ he explained, stating that sex dolls made in South Korea are generally of inferior [quality] to those manufactured abroad.”

“There are various types of people who use [sex dolls],” he explained, “including those who are sexually alienated or those who need them for artistic purposes.”

This kind of art is growing in popularity because, after all, we're no longer an in-person planet. If the average person prefers to argue with a faceless, nameless stranger online, why wouldn’t they want to snuggle up with someone or something that is equally dehumanized?

We're living in the age of high tech: “Blue Christmas: Pansexual Kazakstani Bodybuilder’s Wife May Be Stuck in the Shop for Repairs,” “From the International Journal of Social Robotics: Sex Robots Should be Programmed to Reject Their Owners in Order to Fight Rape Culture,” “South Korean Soccer Team Apologizes After Being Accused of Filling Empty Seats with Sex Dolls,” “Madly-in-Love Man Marries a Hologram, but Their Tale Turns Terminal as the Service Provider Pulls the Plug,” and “Wife Buys Husband $2K Sex Doll to Look Like Her, Then Spends $11K to Look Like It.”

Back to South Korea. Though the sexy scene comes courtesy of December 26, a lot of stocking stuffers are likely celebrating a Happy Little Christmas.

The Christmas season means something different to everyone. Alvin the Chipmunk just longs for his hula hoop; certain people want their own tubes with artificial eyes. This year, more than any other year, for those living in South Korea, the holiday spirit is truly blowing up. Holiday cheer is in the air.

The nation is set for an infamously combustible New Year's Eve. While they wait around for that ball to drop, hopefully, the only hot thing that pops will be their fireworks—and not what accompanies them.
