North America’s First Sex Doll Brothel Shut Down Because The Dolls Can’t Give Consent

Guys, I know you were all really excited to have sex with a doll that a bunch of other dudes had sex with before you, but alas, it is not to be for Toronto residents. “The man” decided to ruin everyone’s good time and revoke the lease for the Aura Dolls sex doll brothel based on some obscure law limiting sex retail shops to industrial areas of North York.

I’m not sure how successful these things really would have been. I mean, a lot of people are probably curious. I’m curious about what these things are like, but they costs thousands of dollars and I’m not nearly that curious. I don’t know if I’m curious to have sex with used sex doll, either, though.

But there’s a part of the story that really got my hackles up, and it was that objections to the sex doll brothel were predicated on the complaint that the the dolls weren’t giving consent. You know, because they’re dolls. And I know what you’re thinking, because I was thinking the same thing: no one is stupid enough to complain that a dude is fucking a sex doll without consent. Well, someone is stupid enough.

Brandy Sudyk, who lives in North York, said it’s critical to consider that as a society we appear to endorse the normalization of enabling men to use inanimate objects — created to look much like real women — however they want.

“In the mind of the person using these dolls, one is clearly imagining being with a woman, but not having to consider consent or dignity as an aspect of sexual interaction,” she said.

“How do we know that men who engage in these activities won’t bring this attitude and behaviour into their interactions with real women, who are already objectified and exploited in the sex trade?”

Every time someone says something like this, it gives me a headache. A sex doll is an inanimate object. You don’t need consent to stick your dick in an inanimate object. If you’re going to put it in a person, yeah, you need to make sure they’re okay with it. If you’re going to put it in a coconut or a Fleshlight or a sex doll, you do you, guy. I mean, I don’t really recommend the coconut thing, but you don’t have to ask the coconut for permission to fuck it.

I can’t imagine being the kind of person who hears about a sex doll brothel and their first thought isn’t “who wants to fuck a used sex doll,” but “having sex with a doll is basically rape, if you think about it.” Also, in related news, Siri is a series of algorythms that analyses speech and answers question using a database; it’s not a lady who sits in your phone that you should be saying “please” and “thank you” to.
