Sex doll shortage for UK and US customers as coronavirus shuts factories and and halts production in China

BRITAIN and America's sex doll industry has suffered a major blow due to the coronavirus outbreak, it has been revealed.

Nearly all of the West's X-rated dolls are shipped in from Chinese factories but there has now been a huge slump in deliveries.

Jade Stanley, who runs Sex Doll Official, told the Sun Online: "There has been a slowdown.

"The problem is workers took three or four days off for Chinese New Year.

"They’ve gone home, been quarantined and been unable to return to factories."

Jade, 36, from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, launched her business in 2018 and last year it became the UK's first to offer a rental service.

She said the service is popular with widowers and the "socially awkward" and dolls can be crafted to clients' specifications.

But they are now in short supply due to manufacturing lockdowns across China.

Mum of four Jade added: "People who buy these products are often people who can’t – or don’t want to -go out a lot.

"That’s especially so with coronavirus….we are having an awful lot of phone calls."

Increasing numbers of British men – and women – are secretly seeking companionship with sex dolls and robots.

Recently one in ten Brits have confessed they would romp with a robot.

By 2020 the sex toy industry will be worth an estimated £38 billion, with sex dolls one of its fastest developing products, costing up to £15,000 a pop.

Last week we told how wife-swappers had vowed to carry on swinging as coronavirus fears grip the nation.

But one club has restricted its numbers to around 100 revellers – and installed hand sanitisers.

A post from CJs club in Glasgow said on a sex site: “CJs parties will still be going ahead and extra measures have been put in place to reduce any risks.

“Hand sanitiser dispensers have been placed on the wall at the entrance outside the cloakroom, at the top of the stairs before you enter playrooms and in the kitchen area.

"We are asking guests to please make use of these along with washing your hands before and after play."
