Prospect of COVID Christmas Sees Sales of Sex Doll Companions Spike

The prospect of a lonely COVID-19 Christmas has seen sales of companion sex dolls spike by more than 112% this month, according to new figures from the US and European sex doll retailer, Sex Doll Genie.

The family-run firm, set up by former aerospace engineer Amit Stevenson and his wife Janet, has reported the treble digit increase as many around the world face up to a lonely festive period as a result of widespread restrictions. In order to combat the double whammy of festive loneliness and the additional COVID-19 related isolation and anxiety, a record number of people are investing in a love doll as a form of therapy or companionship.

Sex Doll Genie co-founder Amit Stevenson said, “The holidays are generally some of the loneliest times of the year for certain groups of people. That, combined with the COVID restrictions we have in place now, is creating a very concerning scenario where those who are vulnerable and feel alone are not able to use what could be their traditional coping mechanisms such as going to a café or taking a stroll to the park.

“It’s clear that seasonal holiday loneliness is being felt to an even sharper degree this year, coming on the back of what could be many months of isolation thanks to coronavirus and national stay-at-home orders. We have found that a lot of new customers are turning to us and our dolls in order to prepare for this period and alleviate some of the anxiety around these dreaded few weeks by having “someone” accompany them through it.”

Research[1] suggests that anxiety and depression levels have trebled in the USA since the beginning of the pandemic, while around one in four UK adults has previously experienced anxiety or depression during the festive period, according to YouGov data[2]; something that will only be exacerbated by current restrictions.

As the largest sex doll retailer in the world, the multiple award-winning Sex Doll Genie stocks more than 2600 premium, hand crafted sex doll designs from 16 different brands.

The use of sex dolls as companionship figures is nothing new to Sex Doll Genie, earlier this year it hit the headlines when aerospace engineer Amit called on SpaceX boss Elon Musk to send companion dolls to the ISS with his astronauts to study the impact of dolls on feelings of isolation and loneliness.
