A Queensland mum has launched a petition seeking to ban the importation of child sex dolls into Australia.

Mellissa Evans’ petition on change.org demands Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk bans the importation of the dolls, which are currently available for Australian delivery from several websites.

The dolls, which are made to resemble children as young as five years old, have been marketed and shipped around the world for more than a decade. They are shipped in clothing, lingerie or naked and have a variety of facial expressions, from smiling to crying or looking like they are in pain.

Their creator, self-confessed paedophile Shin Takagi, believes his creations reduce child sex attacks by satisfying the needs of paedophiles and eliminating their urge to target real children.

“I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically. It’s not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire,” he told the Atlantic.

Mellissa wrote on change.org -

“I am a mother and a grandmother. It is our role as parents, as adults,  to protect our children and their futures.

I am hoping this petition will prohibit the import of child sex dolls into Australia. Ideally, the manufacture and sale of these sickening ‘aids for paedophiles’ will be ceased globally.

The designer and head of Japanese rubber products Trottia, (Mr Shin Takagi) says these dolls will stop offending paedophile behaviour. Takagi is a self-confessed paedophile.

The dolls are made to be lifelike therefore the idea normalises paedophile behaviour. This raises serious concerns.

I do not believe in any way that this is an appropriate deterrent against children being sexually abused.”

The petition has already attracted over 8000 signatures. You can sign it here.

  • I am in support


  • Off to sign this as it is very creepy and wonder what it will create in people that already have issues


  • It’s a reasonable point that it might provide an outlet… But I think it’s more likely to actually desensitise and lead to offending against real kids.


  • I find this very weird and creepy.


  • That is a decent point that it will stop real children from being hurt, but then again I don’t know if it would. Only way to know would be to look at the stats now. Ugh, sickening to think about at all.


  • I dont how to react on this matter but if a mom feels like it not safe then what can we say. the only thing that going to be bad for those who are really need a love doll as a partner and for few online business like http://www.dolljunction.com.


  • I dont believe that this doll would stop a child sex offender.


  • I very much doubt the Govt. checks all types of toys (and other products too) imported into Aust. unless they receive complaints. Paedophiles have now been alerted to the fact that they exist if they didn’t already know. Many will double their experiences and practise on the dolls when they don’t have a child to rape.


  • The solution to padeophilia is not indulging in the practice using dolls like this – the solution is counselling, these men\’s idea of sex is definitely twisted and need to be challenged!


  • Having worked closely with adult movies and the OFLC (Australian Classification) I find it utterly confusing how Australia is allowed to import such products and yet so many other adult movies or toys are not allowed to enter our country. As a nation we have very strict rules about what we allow into our country, what we release to our citizens. One has to declare every little thing they bring on an aeroplane upon entering our shores. An interesting fact to reflect upon, if an adult movie has a school girl theme it is rejected from the OFLC and is not given an R or X rating. Instead the distributor of the movie must edit that scene out. Sometimes that entails more than half of the movie! The OFLC, of course, gets paid large sums for every time material is submitted for a classification. It is remarkably inconsistent then that a child sex toy (which looks as young as 5 years old?!) is allowed to be brought into our nation!

    One must of course look at violent video games… It has been proven that it increases violent tendencies in teenage boys. I don\\\’t think there is any evidence of violent video games \\\”curing\\\” or \\\”calming\\\” anyone! On the contrary, whenever a young man kills a fictional character or rapes a sultry female in the virtual reality video game world something inside of that young man\\\’s brain has changed…. Let alone having sex with a plastic doll which looks like a preschooler. I question – what will that man think when he drives past a primary school… It wouldn\\\’t happen to every single one of them, but we cannot rule out that the thought \\\”Wonder what it would really feel like to do a real one?\\\” wouldn\\\’t cross their minds.

    And the fact that they are sold by a \\\”self confessed pedophile\\\” is perhaps the most disturbing part of all. Why are these people allowed to even have such a business??!! I am an open minded person who understands that we are all individuals and that different things turn on different people, but this – without question – needs to be banned.

    • I completely agree to your thoughts. These toys have proven to encourage the behavior and urge to try it on real person and in some cases they are so in a moment that cannot even distinguish between real and fake. They should be banned and destroyed an anyone who has bought them should be investigated.


  • I’m torn between horrified disgust and a vague idea that he might just have a point… :/ Adulting is hard, I hate these conundrums!


  • Absolutely disgusted


  • i’m not sure how i feel about this, I can see some sense in having these dolls as an option for paedophile’s especially if that means less actual children are taken/harmed etc then I think that is a good thing. But I can see what Melissa is saying also :( -


  • Lke cf


  • I definetly agree that there needs to be a ban.
