Fun's over: China's shared sex dolls snuffed out

18 Septembre 2017

"We are sorry to announce that Touch will suspend the operation of its "girlfriend sharing" service", Xiamen HaiBao Information Technology Co, the developer of Touch, a Chinese sex-products retailer, said in a statement on Monday.

On Thursday, the service was officially unveiled to residents of China's capital city at a promotional "pop up" event with five different silicone beauties on display: "Greek bikini model", "US Wonder Woman", "Korean housewife", "Russian teenager" and "Hong Kong auto race cheerleader".

The company launched the service in Beijing on Thursday.

Rentable sex dolls have been yanked off the market in China and the firm responsible for them has apologized, just days after the "shared girlfriends" began strutting their silicon stuff.

Touch earlier said that it planned to launch the service nationwide after a trial in the capital.

"But not long after the project went online it got attention from society and caused heated discussion". After we got a notice from relevant authorities, we actively cooperated with all investigations and accepted punishment.

Une étude alarmante sur l'état de santé des élèves infirmiers
Le bilan de santé des étudiants en soins infirmiers est alarmant. Ils sont 52% en deuxième année et 62,3% en troisième année. Epuisement, crises d'angoisse, mauvaise santé...

The company said the decision to withdraw the service was made after complaints about its "bad influence on society" and expressed its honest apologies.

Touch told news portal tech.sina.com.cn that staff for the promotional event in the Sanlitun shopping and entertainment area of the city were summoned to a local police station.

It remains unclear if other services from Touch had been affected.

The company agreed to comply with this request, noting however that "sex itself is not vulgar".

The company said it would refund all deposits and return double the fees as damages.
