It has only been a few months since Lumidolls set up its first doll brothel in Barcelona, Spain. But they say they’re already looking for an investor in the UK and this is causing ripples.
The Spanish company says demand for lifelike androids is rising because they are legal (it’s illegal to run a traditional brothel in the UK) and men can “perform any of their s*xual fantasies they do not dare to do with a woman.”
Lumidolls told the Daily Star UK they have commercial agreements with a s*x robot company and are considering the UK market.
A spokesperson said: “We are currently in the process of expanding and looking for franchisees in other countries.”
The firm opened their first venue in Barcelona, where customers could get intimate with “totally realistic” s*x dolls.
The business was forced to shut up shop after a backlash from the city’s real prostitutes.
Now the brothel has reopened in a mystery area, with £67 for half an hour and £83 for an hour.
But not everyone welcomes the new age of the s*x robot. Campaign Against S*x Robots believes the machines encourage men to think of women as objects.
The girls of the night are also complaining that the would lose customers to the robots if allowed.
