Police Clamp down on Sex Doll Brothel one Week after it Opened

Italy’s first sex doll brothel was raided by the police on Wednesday, just nine days after it opened in Turin.

The controversial establishment, which offers clients the use of silicone models inside one of eight private rooms at a secret address in the north-western city, was found to fall foul of Italian laws on renting out accommodation.

Ansa reports that officers from the city’s health authority are also investigating whether the dolls are adequately cleaned after each use,

The owners have been cautioned not to continue operating, as it remains unclear if they might be allowed to reopen if they bring the establishment in line with regulations.

The Turin establishment is a franchise of Lumidolls, a Spain-based company with similar brothels in Barcelona and Moscow.

It is the first such service in Italy, where brothels staffed by human prostitutes are illegal. It opened on September 3rd, with managers boasting that its eight sex dolls – seven female and one male – were already “booked out for weeks”.
