China Now Has a Sharing App That Lets You Rent a Warm Sex Doll

September 15, 2017
People in Beijing have started sharing sex dolls thanks through an app that launched a limited trial run on Wednesday, showing that China’s booming shared economy knows no limits.
The new business comes from Touch, a developer based in Xiamen, Fujian Province, which targets white collar workers aged 20 to 35.
The app has attracted more than 53 million users since it was launched in Apple’s App Store on September 11.
The sex dolls, delivered to the customers’ homes, can be rented for 298 yuan ($45.5) for 24 hours, according to Sina Technology.
They can also be rented up to a week for 1,298 yuan ($200) but would require a deposit of 8,000 yuan ($1,223).

The app currently offers a selection of five models, which include a “Greek bikini model,” “Hong Kong car race cheerleader,” “Korean housewife,” “Russian teenager” and “U.S. Wonder Woman.”
Users can customize the dolls’ appearance (hair, eye and skin color) and outfits to their liking. Special costumes, such as the nurse and school uniforms, cost an extra 35 yuan ($5.35). Accessories are also optional.
Each doll weighs 29.8 kilograms (65.7 pounds) and comes with voice and heating functions.
To ensure the safety of its customers, Touch follows a strict hygiene policy that sanitizes the dolls five times and removes their private parts after every rent.
According to the Global Times, users are advised:
“The dolls’ lower parts are changed for every customer. Please remove the lower parts before returning. After the lower parts are cleaned, the doll can be used repeatedly.”
