Suspended sex doll-sharing service 'had bad influence on Chinese society'

Suspended sex doll-sharing service 'had bad influence on Chinese society'”

For the two days the service was operating, the various dolls - which normally run you about $1,500 and included a Wonder Woman model - could be rented for around $45.

A spokesman for Touch said: "Soon after the "girlfriend sharing service" launched, it triggered intensive attention and heated discussion online".

On Monday, Xiamen HaiBao Information Technology Co released an official statement announcing that it is shutting down the operation of Touch, the said sex-products retailer.

But after all five models were revealed during Touch's launch event on Thursday there was an immediate backlash on social media. "We were informed by relevant authorities and voluntarily cooperate with all the investigations and accept the punishment".

The statement noted that the app generated significant attention and generated "heated discussion".

"We express our deepest apology for the bad influence the shared girlfriend had on society, especially on the internet opinion of the key meeting". The company said staff who worked at the event were later summoned to a local police station, South China Morning Post reports.

There they were questioned and asked to write a letter guaranteeing they would take away all the sex dolls on display, which police said were too "vulgar", it said. In a statement on Weibo, Touch "sincerely apologized for the negative impact" of its shared sex dolls saying that sex is "not vulgar" and that they will continue to promote a "healthier and more harmonious sex lifestyle" through their other products. It appears that shared sex dolls are really a thing here - or at least they were for four days, before the company was forced to cease operations.

All deposits made for the sex doll sharing scheme will be returned to customers, the company said.
