In recent years, the history of Nazi-manufactured sex dolls has gradually come to light, revealing a different facet of the Nazi regime. Let’s embark on a captivating historical journey that unveils the unexpected connection between Hitler and the world of sex dolls. From Japan’s fervent fascination with these artificial companions to the evolution of synthetic partners, the narrative is truly enthralling.

The Rise of the "Otaku" Culture: A Fascination with Sex Dolls

With the rapid spread of the internet, the term “otaku” has become a part of everyday vocabulary. Sex dolls, such as those endorsed by famous personalities like Lin Chi-ling and Aoi Sola, are considered a godsend for otaku men. In Japan, these dolls are practically essential for many otaku, and you might even come across headlines about individuals marrying their silicone companions. This peculiar theme has found its way into movies, like the 2007 American film “Lars and the Real Girl” and the 2009 Japanese film “Air Doll,” featuring socially awkward, middle-aged bachelors falling for their lifelike companions.

The Birth of Sex Dolls in Wartime: A Struggle for Technological Advancements

Sex dolls have an unexpected origin: World War II. However, in the early stages, due to limited technology, they couldn’t evolve into a full-fledged industry. It wasn’t until the 1970s when advancements in synthetic materials, like ethylene vinyl and latex, particularly silicone, started making their way into sex doll production. In parallel, the evolving landscape of the film and literature industries provided new platforms for discussions surrounding human sexuality. This cultural shift paved the way for the emergence of the adult video (AV) industry in Japan, reshaping societal views on sexual matters and catalyzing a burgeoning market for sexual products, including sex dolls.

And would you believe it? The initial creation of sex dolls can be traced back to Germany.

Unveiling a Nazi Connection: Hitler's Role in the Birth of Sex Dolls

In June 2005, Italy’s renowned newspaper “Il Messaggero” reported a shocking revelation: the world’s first sex doll was secretly manufactured by the Nazis in September 1941, under none other than Hitler’s personal directive. With substantial evidence and historical details disclosed in the report, readers worldwide were left astounded. The bizarre association of sex dolls with Hitler’s name has even led some to dub him as the “father of inflatable companions.” In 2010, American author Anthony Ferguson published “The Sex Doll: A History,” providing an in-depth account of the Nazi invention of sex dolls.

The Wartime Solution: Sex Dolls vs. "Comfort Women"

During World War II, both Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan were experiencing industrial booms, while their soldiers were deployed far from home for extended periods. This isolation left many soldiers deprived of regular contact with the opposite sex, leading to a pressing issue. Japan’s response was to enlist “comfort women” from local sources and regions such as China, Korea, and Southeast Asia to address the needs of their soldiers during wartime. On the other hand, Nazi Germany aimed for a more humane and hygienic approach, as they created functional, lifelike sex dolls to fulfill the soldiers’ needs. As time progressed, these silicone companions underwent a transformative journey, ultimately shaping them into the now-familiar “sex dolls.” Japan played a pivotal role in their development, contributing significantly to their evolution.
The surprising history of sex dolls and their connection to Hitler and the Nazi regime highlights the unique and often unexpected paths that inventions and industries can take. From wartime necessity to a cultural phenomenon in Japan and beyond, sex dolls have truly come a long way. This journey continues to evolve, challenging societal norms and expanding to offer a diverse range of choices for those who seek companionship in unconventional ways. The story of sex dolls remains a fascinating and complex chapter in history.

The "Borghild" Project:

In an attempt to tackle the profound loneliness experienced by soldiers during World War II, senior leaders in Nazi Germany crafted a secret project known as the “Borghild Initiative.” This endeavor, as reported by the Evening Post, received a direct directive from Heinrich Himmler, the leader of the Waffen-SS, acting upon Adolf Hitler’s orders. The catalyst for this project was Himmler’s deep concern over the widespread transmission of sexually transmitted diseases among the soldiers, primarily originating from non-Aryan prostitutes.

In a letter dated November 20, 1940, Himmler expressed, “The greatest danger for our troops in Paris is the wide and unrestricted availability of prostitutes who can solicit customers in bars, dance halls, or wherever. Safeguarding the health of our soldiers is an unquestionable duty.” He was referring to the Nazi Waffen-SS soldiers who contracted syphilis and gonorrhea while visiting brothels during the occupation of France and Poland. Whether this was intentional retaliation by local women or accidental remains uncertain. What Himmler was absolutely convinced of was the urgency of creating synthetic substitutes for women, which he believed was imperative for the Nazi army.

It’s widely known that during World War II, both British and German forces used airplanes to distribute explicit propaganda in each other’s territories, effectively undermining the morale of opposing troops. Additionally, American forces disseminated a plethora of explicit pamphlets, including images and “captivating” short stories, into the German-occupied areas, causing considerable distress among Nazi soldiers. Consequently, the “Borghild Project” was shrouded in utmost secrecy to prevent it from becoming the subject of enemy ridicule.

The “Borghild” Project not only prioritized the greater strategic picture but also aimed to address the most immediate and practical needs of Nazi soldiers. Himmler assembled a team of experts from the German Defense Forces and established the project, which operated concurrently with a series of disinfection laboratories. The project was primarily executed at the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum (German Hygiene Museum) in Dresden.

The clandestine team, operating under Himmler’s direct command, was led by the renowned German engineer and materials expert, Franz Tschakert. Himmler selected him for his prior creation of a famous model called the “Woman of Glass” in the 1930s. The team included individuals such as Joachim Mrurgowsky, Olen Hannussen, and Rudolph Chargeheimer, a psychiatrist, along with a young art student who later became a sculptor, Arthur Rink. All team members were sworn to the utmost secrecy, given the project’s top-secret nature. It was only in the subsequent decades that the details of this endeavor gradually became public knowledge.

The “Borghild” Project commenced in June 1940 and ceased its operations in January 1942, lasting only a year and a half. However, at the project’s initiation, Himmler and his team exuded great confidence, much like their initial triumphs on the European front. This confidence stemmed from their belief that the Aryan race was the most superior and intelligent in the world. Long before they even invented the inaugural sex doll, there was a growing unease about the potential widespread adoption of these contrivances and the repercussions that might ensue.

The Difficulty of Manufacturing

Or due to Tschakert’s less-than-stellar progress, a year into the “Borghild Project,” the soldiers on the front lines were still deprived of the companionship of sex dolls. This mission turned out to be far more intricate than initially envisioned.

During the inception of the “Borghild Initiative,” Germany’s chemical giant, I.G. Farben AG, simultaneously worked on creating synthetic plastic models with impeccable skin texture and elasticity for the Waffen-SS. However, they were unsure about the specific attributes that would appeal to the soldiers.

In the early stages of the “Borghild Initiative,” Franz Tschakert, the project’s initial overseer, contemplated using living female models as the basis for imitation. He invited a group of renowned female athletes to his studio for photography, including Wilhelmina von Bremen, who had participated in Olympic track and field events, and Annette Walter. However, Tschakert soon realized that using these athletes as templates was entirely unworkable for crafting sex dolls. In a letter to Mrurgowsky, he wrote, “Many times their legs appear too short, making them look rather unattractive, and their arms resemble those of a professional wrestler. In summary, the entire sex doll is nauseating. Furthermore, I am unable to assemble the various components to form a complete human body.”

After discussions, they came up with a new approach: choosing contemporary film stars as the models for imitation. They unanimously agreed that the dolls should possess alluring and playful facial features, akin to famous actresses of that time, like Kathe von Nagy. When Mrurgowsky attempted to enlist the enchanting Nagy, she politely declined having her face associated with sex dolls.

In July 1941, as Hitler’s forces advanced into the Soviet Union, Mrurgowsky withdrew from the “Borghild Initiative,” leaving it in the hands of an ambitious but unknown Danish man, Olen Hannussen, who became the head of the project. Two years into World War II, as the Nazis tried to capture the strategically significant city of Stalingrad, Hannussen urged everyone to expedite their efforts to complete the project. As the project’s pioneers, they had no reference materials to guide them, making it challenging to replicate a lifelike human physique using plastic technology.

Chargeheimer penned a letter to Hannussen, underscoring the difficulties of the project: “The purpose and objective of creating sex dolls were indeed to save our soldiers from the rigors of warfare. They must engage in combat with enemy troops and face the risk of contracting diseases while impersonally ‘engaging’ with foreign women in bed. However, compared to a real woman, no man would want to have an intimate encounter with a mannequin unless our technicians excel in meeting the following quality standards: firstly, the synthetic human body must have a genuinely lifelike touch; secondly, the doll’s physique and limbs must possess flexibility akin to a real human’s; thirdly, the doll’s organs must convey a fully authentic feel.”

In addition to the technical challenges, they also grappled with uncertainty about the aesthetic aspect of sex dolls. “Borghild” was, after all, an ordinary German woman’s name, and this project aimed to conform to the aesthetic standards of the Nazi military. As per their own descriptions, the sex dolls had to embody all the qualities of Aryan women. Half a century later, a Norwegian media outlet revealed that during the war, Hitler had very specific criteria for the appearance of sex dolls: they had to be slender, alluring, with fair skin, golden hair, blue eyes, a height of 176 centimeters, and, of course, full lips and a well-endowed bosom.

The Birth of Sex Dolls

Hannussen deviated from the initial idea of using real human faces for the sex dolls. He believed that the faces should exude desire to entice the soldiers further. In his later-published personal diary, he wrote, “These dolls have only one purpose (to provide release); they cannot replace the revered mothers back home. When soldiers engage with Borghild, it’s devoid of emotions. Therefore, the faces of these sex machines must be real, those of wanton women, as described in Otto Weininger’s magnum opus ‘Sex and Character.'”

As a result, ten explicit faces were created to match actual dimensions. These faces underwent sampling among a group of soldiers, with their feedback serving as test specimens. Following the experiment, both Chargeheimer and Hannussen were profoundly convinced that the success of sex dolls primarily depended on their facial expressions. As expected, the results of subsequent tests aligned with this notion, as the vulgar facial features aroused significant interest among regular soldiers. The models were soon put into production at a factory in Konigsberg (now Kaliningrad, part of the Soviet Union after World War II).

Half a century later, Arthur Rink recalled in the media how Hannussen had crafted ten lascivious faces and had Chargeheimer take them for psychological testing. Rink also claimed that he and Tschakert had already completed a sex doll prototype. “We intended to create three models of sex dolls: Model A was 168 centimeters, Model B was 176 centimeters, and Model C required a height of 182 centimeters. The team had disagreements over the dolls’ busts. We, the German Waffen-SS, wanted well-rounded busts, while Dr. Hannussen, as a Danish doctor, insisted on a wild roseberry shape, as he believed it would be easier for men to grasp. Clearly, he won the argument. Thus, the first Borghild doll was born, resembling a Nordic ethnicity.”

The first sex doll was manufactured in September 1941, just in time for Himmler’s parade in Berlin. It is rumored that Himmler displayed great enthusiasm for these sex dolls, immediately ordering 50 of them.Naturally, it’s unclear whether these dolls were meant for distribution among soldiers or for the leader’s private use.

According to Rink’s recollections, “We probably obtained some special production equipment because Tschakert’s lab was too small to produce 50 sex dolls.”

Unexpectedly, one week later, Himmler not only failed to increase their equipment but also canceled the order for these sex dolls and slashed the financial budget for the project. With the unfavorable turn of the war, the Nazis reallocated finances to more extensive battlefronts, especially in the East.

In comparison to the failures on the front lines, the welfare project for manufacturing inflatable dolls appeared insignificant. Subsequently, the “Borghild Initiative” was shelved. It remained dormant until February 1945, when Allied forces bombed Dresden, completely destroying the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum.

In subsequent years, certain scholars began to question the validity of the covert “Borghild” initiative and whether it successfully brought sex dolls into existence. Norbert Lenz, a journalist and freelance writer born in Hamburg in the 1960s, believed that the project did not genuinely produce a sex doll. Instead, he posited that Allied bombs obliterated the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum, destroying the two models that were under construction.

The Legendary Legacy Continues

After the war, the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden was restored and reorganized. Today, it houses many human body models cast from glass and plastic. Members of the organization claim they have never heard even a whisper about the “Borghild” project during their tenure there.

As for Arthur Rink, he recalls that a few weeks after the German defeat in the Battle of Stalingrad, the entire laboratory was handed back to the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden. However, he was unaware of the fate of those sex dolls. He guessed that the plastics and various blueprints were transported back to Berlin. Born in 1919, he was a mere art student when the “Borghild” project was in progress. To prove that the sex dolls were indeed created by their team, Rink even released two photos of the models from that time.

Apart from Hitler and Himmler, two well-known Nazi leaders, the other technical personnel involved in the “Borghild” project were also real individuals. Many believe that the origins of inflatable dolls are rooted in Nazi Germany, as the public sale of inflatable dolls began in the German market after World War II. In August 1955, Max Weissbrodt of O&M Hausser introduced the world’s first batch of sex dolls. However, these dolls were merely 30 cm high and modeled after a cartoon character named Lilli. These miniature sex toys were advertised in red-light districts, distributed to adult men, and sold in bars and tobacco shops.

Clearly, Ruth Handler drew inspiration from the Lilli doll and subsequently created the globally popular Barbie doll. Following this trend, the United States also manufactured numerous inflatable dolls during the Vietnam War and received positive reviews from soldiers.

Customs regulations in European countries like the UK long prohibited the import of obscene items. In 1982, a shipment of sex dolls was seized by the UK Customs and Excise officers during customs clearance. The shipment belonged to entrepreneur and publisher David Sullivan’s company. Sullivan took the case to the European Court of Justice and won five years later. From that point on, inflatable dolls also entered the gates of the UK, giving rise to manufacturers in the country. By 2004, David Sullivan, who made his fortune in the adult industry, was ranked 68th on The Sun’s list of Britain’s richest individuals.

By the late 1990s, Japan had already created highly realistic inflatable dolls with lifelike skin, flexible limbs, vocal capabilities, and a variety of facial expressions. These dolls were also extremely portable. In the United States, Abyss Creations, a company based in California, designed sex dolls made of non-toxic soft silicone and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These lifelike dolls were branded as “Real Dolls” and came with price tags ranging from $6,000 to well over $10,000.

The emergence of Chinese factories and efficient production chains has significantly driven down costs in the sex doll market, with leading manufacturers like WM and AIBEI at the forefront of this transformation. Leveraging advanced production technologies, they have successfully reduced manufacturing expenses. Today, on platforms like Pripaly, you can easily find the perfect sex doll for an astonishingly affordable price, ranging from approximately $700 to $3,000.
