Sex doll ‘brothel’: Xdolls escapes Paris council censure

Paris councillors have rejected a motion targeting a business where clients are charged €89 ($109; £78) to spend an hour with a silicone sex doll.

Communist councillors and feminist groups had called on the Council of Paris – the body responsible for governing the city – to study the possibilities of closing Xdolls.

They argued it was demeaning to women – and effectively a brothel.

Owning or operating a brothel is illegal in France.

But police visited the establishment before the council meeting and declared no laws were being broken.

In a joint statement, Communist councillors Nicolas Bonnet Oulaldj and Hervé Bégué said they deeply regretted the council’s decision.

“This establishment, with hyper-realistic humanoid dolls, is the latest invention to bring brothels back into the landscape,” they said.

They went on to describe Xdolls as “the pinnacle of the dehumanisation of the relationship between women and men” and accused it of trivialising the exploitation of women by prostitution networks, and the related crime of human trafficking.
