Oh boy, this subject is a tough one! Karley Sciortino, also known as ‘Slutever’, is one of the best known names in the exploration of sex culture. She even managed to make a full documentary about her experiences with sex dolls. I’m pretty sure that when you hear the words ‘sex with a doll’, you get a weird feeling in your stomach. That’s the same feeling I had when I heard it the first time. I was like, what? Is this really a thing?
Talking to my friends, I realized that it was. It seems that many people, when asked about how they feel about it, dildos are split. Some, mostly those of older generations, expressed shock and disapproval.Others, especially the younger generations, seemed more open-minded or even had an interest in it. I suppose that’s because of the ever-changing perceptions of our culture. No matter what opinion on the issue you have, it’s important to remember that we all have different views and that’s ok.
Personally, I was a bit taken aback when I heard about the subject at first. I just could not wrap my head around how someone might be into that. But then, when I actually took the time to read more about Karley Sciortino’s experiences with the dolls, I began to understand where the attraction might come from. She talks about how some people just need something to fill the void, something to replace human contact in certain situations.
It’s also important to note that sex dolls are not just for creepy old men. When you watch Karley’s documentary, it becomes obvious that it’s really about a diverse range of people. We even get a glimpse into some of the women who turned to the dolls for, of all things, a place to experience sexual pleasure. It really opened my eyes, and I gained a much more openminded view on the subject.
But, at the end of the day, I still can’t help but feel a little weird about it. I obviously can’t judge those who have made different decisions than me, but I’ll still be sticking to cuddling a human for my next cosy night in. How do you feel about sex with dolls? Have you ever considered it? Or do you think it’s weird and Penis Rings you’re sticking with the classics?
Moving on, when I think about the concept of Karley Sciortino and sex with a doll, I can’t help but think of the gap between fantasy and reality. It’s easy to get carried away by the rich and colourful visuals provided, and it’s hard to tell if the fun that it provides is actually as great as in real life. You also can’t overlook the fact that sex with a doll still isn’t a real life experience.
A doll can’t give a human the same level of pleasure and intimacy. Even if they are advanced enough, a doll can never substitute the unique energy of another human being. That’s why I think that if you’re using a doll to fill a void or for sexual pleasure, the experience may be enjoyable, but it can never be truly fulfilling.
The same goes for Karley Sciortino. Even though she was so open about her experience, there had to be a tremendous amount of emotional heavy lifting for her to accept that sex with a doll was something that she needed. So, if you’re planning on trying this for yourself, make sure to take it into account that the experience is only as real as you make it, and be prepared for the fact that it may not fill that inner emptiness that you’re feeling.
When we think about Karley Sciortino’s exploration of sex with a doll, it’s important to remember that our relationship to pleasure isn’t as simple as the dolls. We all have wildly different experiences with anything around pleasure, and it’s hard to reach a conclusion on we feel about it. Should we open our mind and respect those who find pleasure in their dolls? Or should we continue to express our disapproval as the older generations have done?
