Can a sex doll be a hooker?

For about $26, a Korean fella can rent a room, a computer and a rubber doll for sex. Suddenly, "sex doll rooms" are springing up across South Korea, and cops -- who are naturally suspicious of people having fun -- are perplexed: Is renting a rubber doll for sex "prostitution"?

According to Chosun.com, "But rubber is rubber and flesh is flesh, so it remains unclear if selling one violates laws against the sale of the other. 'Since the sex acts are occurring with a doll and not a human being, it is unclear whether the Special Law on Prostitution applies,' a police officer lamented. "

Now, I personally don't see the appeal of sex with a piece of artistically sculpted Silly Putty, but the issue raises some interesting questions: If paying for sex with a rubber doll is prostitution, must we also determine the exact age of the doll to ensure it's not child molestation, too? If you steal it, is it kidnapping? And if you pop the doll accidentally, can you be charged with manslaughter? And let's not even discuss the possibility of rubber sheep.

Whew, it's a good thing we don't have to worry about global terrorism anymore.

EWWWW! How sick! UGH!

But it is nice to know that we don't have to worry about terrorism,nuclear aspirations of nations hostile to our way of life, ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION, or corrupt politicians, anymore!

Hooray for Rent-a-Rubber Love Doll!

I was hoping one of the men would wander through here and comment. Since they haven't, here goes.

And this is worse than an inflatable doll how? At least there is no other person being used, abased, and possibly abused. The transmission of STD's approaches zero. It seems to me the only harm (and I'm not saying it's necessarily harmful)is to the one who chooses to forego the complex but potentially rewarding work of a real relationship for interaction with a rubber doll.

You're right, though. The topic does have the potential to distract from real evils: war, genocide, slavery, abject poverty and the starvation of millions, humanity's inhumanity to humanity ...

There was an article over on Salon.com about high-end dolls used for these purposes. The dolls were several thousand dollars.

As technology improves, I guess there will be a few Bladerunner like scenarios. Is it possible that some people might prefer this to conventional sexual relationships?

If so, isn't it a good thing that they aren't attempting conventional sexual relationships?

I have to agree with Chance, anyone who prefers a rubber dolly should use a rubber dolly and keep his sperm where they belong, in a rubber. No reason to propogate that species!!
