Amazon Pulls Child Sex Dolls Following Complaints

Amazon UK has pulled child sex dolls from their online storefront after widespread complaints from a watchdog group and others in Britain over concerns that pedophiles may use them as a “gateway doll” which would lead to the sexual abuse of children.

Over a dozen child sex dolls were removed in all, having been listed by third-party sellers.

“All Marketplace sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who don’t will be subject to action including potential removal of their account,” said an Amazon spokesman in a statement. “The products in question are no longer available.”

“We felt disgusted and we straight away reported it to Amazon,” they told the BBC.

Last year, a judge at Canterbury Crown Court dismissed ex-primary school governor David Turner’s argument that a child sex doll he imported was not obscene. Turner, a former churchwarden, pleaded guilty last July to importing the child sex doll.

Responding to a BBC investigation, Anne Longfield, England Children’s Commissioner, said: “These dolls are disgusting and are clearly meant to look like children.

“Not only do I, as Children’s Commissioner, but the wider public also, have a right to expect a huge company like Amazon, to not only remove these products from their platform, but to explain why they are on there in the first place and ensure they can’t just be reloaded having been taken down.”
