‘Test drive a sex doll’ option introduced by London retailer

Posted: January 24, 2018

Few people would purchase an expensive outfit for an important occasion without trying it on in advance, so a London retailer is hoping that a new rental initiative will lead to an increase in sales of its realistic sex dolls.

Silicone Sex World launched its rental option last month, and it has reported record interest in its pre-built and custom sex dolls as a result. It says that “orders have come in thick and fast” and the rental unit has been fully booked for several weeks. Purchase prices start at around £1,000 and the firm’s product specialist Andy Phelps said: “For many, investing in a doll is a significant purchase but with a rental option, it’s much more attainable. Six months ago we sold two dolls per week and now we sell five per day. Those who haven’t used a sex doll before are naturally curious about the experience and others simply want to try before they make a substantial purchase – a rental option was a logical step and one that our customers have really responded well to. The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive.”

The rental price is £100 per day and although only one model is currently available to try-before-you-buy, a further doll may be offered. The company states that an “extensive” hygiene and sanitisation procedure is in place for the doll, and some removable parts are disposed of after each use. The rental doll can be booked in-store and over the phone and it is shipped in discreet packaging. For more information visit www.siliconesexworld.com
