SEX DOLL NEWS

Is it legal to import and own a sex doll?

I would like to say hello to friends who love sex dolls all over the world. Today, Mailovedoll is going to talk about a very important topic. If you’re going to buy a sex doll, you must know the information below. As the article title states, the information we present today is primarily about whether it is legal to import and own a sex doll in your country/region.

Many people will probably be surprised that it could be illegal to import and own a sex doll?

The answer is yes. It is illegal to import or own a sex doll in some countries, and it is also illegal to import and own certain categories of sex dolls in some countries.

Below is detailed information provided by Mailovedoll.

In which countries is it illegal to import, own, and trade sex dolls of any kind?

There are over 200 countries in the world today, and each country has its different cultures, beliefs, and legal systems. For example, in Islamic countries, all pornography is strictly prohibited. Some other countries also ban all kinds of sex dolls and toys for various reasons. These countries and regions are as follows:

Countries that strictly adhere to Islamic traditions

The countries Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran, Iraq, and Egypt, as well as some mid-east countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Maldives. Additionally, some Islamic countries in Central Asia and Africa. (All these countries will be listed and shown in the pictures at the end of this article.)

According to Islamic law, masturbation is strictly prohibited. Since the sex doll is a high-end masturbation toy, many Islamic countries have laws that prohibit the trade, import, ownership, and use of sex dolls. People who fail to comply with these laws will face serious penalties. Even foreigners entering these countries are prohibited from carrying and using sex dolls. Please pay attention to these countries.

India

Many people probably don’t realize that India is a country that completely prohibits sex dolls and sex doll importing and trading!

According to section 292 of the Indian criminal law, all books, drawings, graphics, and figures that contain pornographic content and overt sexual thoughts and behaviors shall be deemed to be obscene.

Thailand

Generally, buying sex toys is not allowed in Thailand. According to the relevant laws, it is illegal for merchants and individuals to trade and import adult toys, except for a very few professional physiological health institutions with specific licenses.

Articles 246 and 244 of the New Customs Code of the Thai Buddhist Calendar 2560 (Gregorian Year 2017) and Article 287 of the Criminal Law state that anyone who is unlawfully importing, exporting, and selling such sex toys will face imprisonment of up to three years, or a fine up to 60,000 baht (approximately $1,920)—or both!

But the fact is that there are a wide variety of sex toy sales in Thailand. The government does not pay attention to these transactions and does not strictly enforce the law. Many Thais have discussions and polls on social media about whether sex toy trading should be legalized. More than 90% of people online support the legalization of sex toys.

Sex dolls are a kind of sex toy, so Mailovedoll will strictly comply with Thai law, and will not sell or ship any sex toy products to Thailand.

Vietnam

It is illegal to import and purchase sex toys in Vietnam. If you are a foreigner and want to bring a sex doll into Vietnam, it will be restricted at customs. You may want to leave your sex doll at customs, picking it up when you exit the country.

It is the same when you’re buying a sex doll online (from other countries) and shipping it to Vietnam. Your package won’t be able to get into the country.

Of course, it’s also illegal to trade sex dolls in Vietnam.

North Korea

It is no doubt that sex dolls are illegal in this country!

State of Alabama, US

According to the 1998 State of Alabama Anti-Obscenity Enforcement Act, the sale of sex toys is illegal. The act defines the sex toy as “any device designed or made for the stimulation of human genital organs.” Unfortunately, sex dolls are in that category.

In which countries are illegal to import sex dolls?

South Korea and Brazil

Both countries prohibit the import of sex dolls. If you want to bring a sex doll into the country, it is more than likely you will be checked at customs. Similarly, people who live in these countries are not able to buy sex dolls online.

In addition to the above-mentioned countries, the chart below gives you a better understanding of which countries and regions are unable to import, purchase, or own sex dolls due to legal issues:

The above-mentioned countries prohibit all types of sex dolls. Some countries, however, have restrictions on only certain kinds of sex dolls, which are usually child sex dolls. Definitions of child sex dolls vary from country to country. Dolls less than 125 cm, with distinct childish characteristics and a cup size smaller than B, are usually at risk of violating the law.

In which countries/regions is it illegal to trade and own a child sex doll?

A few years ago, many American people were discussing the legislation of child sex dolls. In 2017, the CREEPER Act was introduced to Congress, but until now the act has not been adopted. People in the US have been debating whether child sex dolls are legal. People who want to ban child sex dolls state that the proliferation of child sex dolls may lead to an increase in sexual assaults against children. Opponents argue that banning child sex dolls does not reduce the number. In contrast, the use of child sex dolls may reduce sexual assaults.

If you are a group member that supports the ban on child sex dolls, you can vote on it here:

If you are a group member that against the ban of child sex dolls, you can vote on it here:

Let’s see your vote.

Although the federal government has not agreed on this act, several states have passed laws that prohibit child sex dolls.

You can learn more about the state laws from the links below:

State of Florida:

State of Tennessee:

State of Kentucky:

If you live in one of the above states, be aware that it’s illegal to buy and own a child sex doll.

Australia

Australia is one of the countries of the world that imports the most child sex dolls, according to the data of Chinese and Japanese doll manufacturers. In addition, Australia is also one of the first countries to impose restrictions on the purchase and use of sex dolls.

Under the provisions of Australia’s Customs Act of 1901, child sex dolls are objectionable commodities and must be licensed to be imported into Australia.  People who fail to comply with the law will be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison and a maximum fine of 450,000 US dollars.

According to the definition of ‘Child Abuse Prevention’ in section 91FB of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW), the production, distribution, or possession of such material is a crime, which comes with a maximum penalty of ten years of imprisonment.

In March and April of 2020, Australian police have caught several criminals who bought and owned child sex dolls. These people have been sued by the court. For detailed information please click here.

United Kingdom

The import and sale of child sex dolls have been completely banned in the UK for the last two years. It is against the law if you are in the business of importing and trading child sex dolls within the UK. It is legal in the UK, however, to simply own a child sex doll.

If you want to learn what laws could be violated when importing and buying sex dolls, you can check the laws here.

Canada

The definition of child pornography in Canadian criminal law is “a photographic, film, video, or other visual representation, whether or not it was made by electronic or mechanical means.” Obviously, child sex dolls are included in this definition.

If you are a Canadian buying a child sex doll, you may experience the same thing as Kenneth Harrison.

Norway

Norway is also a country that bans child sex dolls. For more information, please click here.  

Mailovedoll will not sell child-like dolls to any country and region that prohibits the sale of such dolls. If you belong to one of the above-mentioned countries and regions, please do NOT buy it.
