Realistic sex dolls will soon be able to talk!

Looking for some high-tech loving? Soon you will be able to take a life-like, fully customisable, talking sex doll to bed with you at night!


If you've always dreamed of taking Barbie to bed, your wishes have finally come true! A U.S company, RealDoll, is currently producing a customisable, life-size sex doll that will be able to blink, open its mouth and even talk.

Matt McCullen, the creator of RealDoll has been producing realistic sex dolls for almost a decade, completely customising the dolls' skin, hair and eye colour and even their body type to suit a customer's specific needs, The New York Times reports. The current RealDoll's don't come cheap. Entry level dolls start at around R60 000 with fully customised dolls costing up to R125 000.

Now McCullen believes that there is a market for more sophisticated, robotic sex dolls that can behave more like a real person. His California-based company has busy assembled a team of robotics specialists to work on the project, currently dubbed Realbotix, The Independent explains.

The team is hard at work, finding ways to animate the doll, ultimately creating a more authentic experience for the user. The idea is that the doll will be able to talk, moan and make other sounds to indicate that it is enjoying the sexual encounter just as much as his or her human partner!

Their initial aim is to create a robotic head that can be attached to the body of the current RealDoll. The robotic head will cost around R125 000 and should be available within the next two years. McCullen then hopes to produce a doll that also has a robotic body - allowing it to gyrate its hips during moments of pleasure. However, these dolls will be reserved for those with deep wallets - McCullen expects to sell them for over R700 000!

RealDoll has something for every adult. If you're not into Barbie, you can choose a male or transgendered dolls instead. You can also buy clothing, accessories and wigs for your doll. If your doll suffers a bedroom-related injury, do not fear. You can purchase an at-home repair kit to get it the medical attention it requires.

Curious as to see what one of these dolls may actually look like? Meet Kaori and Brooklyn (yes, these are dolls, not real women!)
