The world's first sex doll only brothel has opened in Germany

I'm sure there are some readers here who have visited a brothel at one point in their lives. Don't worry, I'm not here to judge.

You can find them in places like Australia, where prostitution is legal, or in the United States (if you know where to look). Think of them as a more convenient way of paying to get off. It's also way simpler for the pimps as well. Brothels are also popular in Germany, but one such establishment in Dortmund is making history for catering to a specific type of clientele.

Welcome to Bordoll. It's a portmanteau of "bordello" and "doll", and armed with that information, it might not come as a surprise to you that this is a brothel that deals exclusively in sex dolls. It features 11 lovedolls, who offer the best silicone-based time anywhere in the world. They're all expertly marshalled by 29-year-old Evelyn Schwarz.

I know what you're thinking: how on earth does one end up running a brothel populated entirely by sex dolls? For Evelyn Schwarz, Bordoll came about via an unexpected detour. She was looking for people to work in an S&M club, and as communication is vital in that line of work, she was looking for someone who could speak fluent German.

"Actually I was looking for colleagues with good knowledge of German for the S&M scene, because for these practices communication is very important. But I did not find any."

Not content to let her dreams die just yet, Evelyn instead splashed out on these lovely ladies, who weigh about 30kg each, and come in a variety of hair colours and body types. They are imported from Asia, and set Evelyn back around €2,000 (£1,786) each. Expensive, yes, but Evelyn more than makes her money back thanks to the incredible demand for her love dolls.

If you ever happen to be in Dortmund and find your curiosity suitably piqued, then you can hire out one of Bordoll's dolls for around €80 (£71) an hour. The dolls are reportedly booked around 12 times a day, and Evelyn says that there are plenty of men willing to satisfy what she views less as a fetish, and more a "curiosity".

According to Evelyn herself, men from all walks of life are willing to try out her establishment, "from those on benefits to judges". She's also got a very good retention rate: the showrunner at Bordoll says that "seventy percent of men also come back", with wives waiting patiently in the car as their husbands have their fun with what they view as a "toy".

So far for Evelyn, business has been good. The only real setback so far has been a casualty to one of the dolls: Anna is the most popular doll at Bordoll, and one customer got... overly excited, and damaged her. Not to worry, though: Evelyn ordered a new one soon enough, and the establishment has recovered well.

So there you have it, folks. We're living in a wonderful technological age at the moment. Not only are we effortlessly connected to one another via the internet, but thanks to the likes of Apple, Google, Sony, or many more companies, we're able to do more to ensure productivity and prosperity than ever before.

So perhaps it was only a matter of time before we started using that groundbreaking tech to the maximum in order to get ourselves off. Some of you may turn up your nose at the idea of Bordoll, but as long as everyone involved is happy, then who are we to judge?
