A mother is fighting to ban child sex dolls after her daughter’s likeness was used for a doll.
NBC 6 spoke exclusively with the girl’s mother about her mission to join the Boca Raton-based organization in fighting a federal ban on child sex dolls. Currently, child sex dolls are only banned in Florida and two other states, but advocates and victims say more needs to be done to unravel the mystery.





“I knew right away. I only knew one page where I had seen her and I had magnified her face and her hair. I just couldn’t believe it,” said the mother, who wishes to be referred to as “Terri.”

Terri then took a closer look at the Amazon ad.

“When I saw the person who looked exactly like my daughter, I clicked on it, and when I saw the face and the pose, I just couldn’t stop. I started to cry. I was totally shocked and angry,” she said.

The $559 doll resembles her 8-year-old daughter. It is not just any doll, but a “high quality male sexy sex doll,” according to an Amazon ad. A May product review says, “A great item for today “.

“Sometimes I can’t sleep because I can’t think of anything but the men having sex with these dolls and I can’t get them back. I just want to burn them,” Terri said through tears.

NBC 6 has confirmed that the same doll is nude on another website, but we have not identified her.

Terri said she was horrified. She contacted Amazon – and four days later, the ad was removed. In a statement, an Amazon spokesperson said, “All sellers must adhere to our selling policies or they will face action, including possible deletion of their account. The product has been removed.”

But Terry said she found the same doll on other sites on the Internet.

“On some of those sites, she was completely naked and there was a video of people trying to explain how this child sex doll worked,” she said.

A quick search shows similar child sex dolls on other popular websites.

“They should be charged as sex offenders. They should be fined. And these sites need to be shut down,” Terry said. “At that moment, I knew I couldn’t do this fight alone. I knew I needed someone to help me because I couldn’t take these puppets off 13, 14, 15 pages.”

Terri worked with the Boca Raton-based Children’s Rescue Coalition (CRC), an organization dedicated to stopping and identifying predators who traffic in illegal child pornography material.

Carly Yoost, executive director of the CRC, said, “This is a real child under the influence of alcohol, it’s not an imaginary doll, it was made in the image of a person and with images of that mother.”

The CRC is calling on Congress to pass a federal law banning the sale of child sex dolls.

Yost said, “The more abusers consume images and videos of abused children on the Internet and buy love dolls to act out their sexual fantasies, the more likely they are to abuse real children.”

For Terri, it was a struggle she was willing to take on. Her family was used to struggling – her daughter has an immune deficiency and needs regular blood transfusions to stay alive.

“I never thought I would be involved in this fight to ban sex dolls from the Internet. I knew I had to do something within 35 hours, even if it was the worst thing that could happen to my family,” Terry said. “I knew I had to turn this negativity into something positive and create the best situation possible to overcome the nightmare.

Tennessee and Kentucky are the other two states that have banned child sex dolls. The Children’s Rescue Coalition has started an online petition calling for them to be banned in the United States.
