In Tokyo, Japan, REONA, a life-sized silicon sex doll sells for $7,500 (U.S.). The doll was shown at the apartment of the creator, a designer of artificial prosthetics, in a small room that served as his office. It was slouched in a leather chair dressed in a silk pajama and pantyhose. He changed the clothes to show the full figure, including private parts, which are removable and washable (not inserted for the photo). The doll is moved around by wheelchair. Its cold clammy skin was not a problem, assured the designer. "The doll has great thermoconductive properties. You can put an electric blanket on it for a while and it will retain body heat for a long time."
