SILICONE rubber dolls which resemble Chinese film stars Gong Li and Zhang Ziyi are in hot demand. They provide “sex services” at RM10 per hour in China, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.
The silicone rubber dolls, similar to “blow-up dolls”, were also available in the likeness of Maggie Cheung, Bridget Lin and contestants of the popular Supergirls singing competition in China.
An undercoer reporter visited an entertainment outlet in Hu Lu Dao of Liaoning province was stunned to see the dolls in a room for him to choose from.
He hesitated but the boss then gave him a demonstration by fondling “Lin’s” breast and the doll replied “tao yan!” (hate it, in a coy tone).
Americans may have fallen out of love with President Barack Obama, but the president of the United States is still an object of affection for the Chinese, who have remodelled him as a blow-up sex doll.
The boss said the dolls, equipped with a computer-controlled voice system, would make different sounds according to the movements.
He said he planned to expand his business for women by providing Chow Yuen Fatt and Jackie Chan dolls due to the overwhelming response for these celebrity dolls.
The extra-marital affair of a contractor was exposed after he told pressmen the heroic act of him catching a robber in Johor Baru.
The 44-year-old Singaporean informed Sin Chew Daily on Tuesday that he was injured while fighting a robber, who tried to rob his “wife”.
After the news was published, a woman telephoned the daily claiming she was the wife of the contractor.
She said they have three children aged between seven and 21.
“Our relationship turned sour after he was having an affair with the woman,” she claimed.
The daily’s reporter attempted to contact the other woman but she hung up the phone upon hearing the question.
COMMENTARY: When I first heard about the popularity of silcone celebrity love dolls in China, I knew I had to look into it.
Chinese love dolls are not a Chinese phenomena, but are also very popular in Japan, where the love doll craze really started back in 2006.
Celebrity silicone love dolls are not cheap, costing $6500 to $20,000 or more depending on the degree of detail and customization. An Italian gentlemen missed his ex-girlfriend so much that he spent $15,000 for a silicon replica.
Today, love dolls are gaining popularity throughout Asia, in Japan, Korea and China. They are also available in the U.S. through adult shops and online sites.
