The first recorded manufactured sex-doll appeared in "The Sexual Life of Our Time" written by psychiatrist Iwan Bloch and published in 1908.

After the sexual revolution during the 1960s, adverts began appearing in magazines featuring dolls with different hair colours and styles.

Did Adolf Hitler create sex dolls?

During World War 2, it was believed that Nazi leader Adolf Hitler ordered sex dolls to be given to German troops fighting on the front line.

It was rumoured that a scheme called the Borghild Project aim to combat the spread of syphilis among Nazi troops by supplying them with sex dolls.

It was supposedly inspired by Heinrich Himmler's 1940 memo to Hitler that there was a syphilis problem in Paris brothels.

He wrote in his report: "The greatest danger in Paris is the widespread and uncontrolled presence of whores."

It's reported Hitler approved the project to provide the dolls, which were transported in soldiers backpacks.
