Man Buys Sex Doll ‘To Remind Him of His Lost Son’

A Canadian man has told the court that he ordered child-sex doll to remind him of his lost son.

Kenneth Harrisson does not dispute that he ordered a child-sized sex doll from a specialist Japanese website.

But he told a Canadian court this week that his reasons were not sexual, but sentimental. He testified that he was lonely and that he ordered the doll for companionship to replace his son, who died as an infant in 1988.

Harrisson has been charged with possessing child pornography and mailing obscene matter as well as two charges under the federal Customs Act of smuggling and possession of prohibited goods.

Harrisson maintains that he did an online search for a sex doll and claims that he chose the particular model – a ‘Carol’ – because its face reminded him of his son.
Harrisson ordered “Carol” from a Japanese website advertising childlike and adult sex dolls in 2013, and the doll was intercepted by Canadian authorities before it could be delivered.

More than 40 child-like sex dolls have been seized at the border since 2016, according to information from the Canada Border Services Agency.

Harrisson insists the doll’s face was what appealed to him, and the fact that the doll was splayed kneeling in a sexually submissive position did not influence his purchase. When asked why he didn’t just order a ‘male’ doll Harrisson said the idea did not cross his mind.

Appearing as a prosecution witness at an earlier hearing Forensic psychologist Peter Collins said that “Carol” is the size of a prepubescent child without sexually mature characteristics and that the the doll meets the technical definition of child pornography.

Prosecuting attorney Bill Howse said that Harrisson’s claim that he ordered a female sex doll as a male companion to replace his son “doesn’t make any sense” and asked him for an explanation.

Harrison said “I did not order a sex doll of a childlike nature,” according to a report on CTV News. “The purpose I intended it for was to replace my deceased son, period.”

When prosecutor Dana Sullivan asked Harrison why he didn’t just buy a dog if he was lonely, the defendant laughingly replied “A dog is not representative of a human, it’s not human in appearance.”

The case, which has been running in Canada since 2013, challenges the legal definition of what constitutes child pornography.

The Canadian Criminal Code defines child pornography as “a photographic, film, video or other visual representation, whether or not it was made by electronic or mechanical means” that shows a person who is, or depicted as being, under 18 years old engaged in explicit sexual activity.

The issue of how to legislate the sale of child-sized sex dolls is a growing problem for lawmakers around the world. In the U.K., more than 120 ‘child’ sex dolls were seized by police in 2016 and 2017 as part of “Operation Shiraz.”

In the US, the brilliantly-named “CREEPER” (Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedophilic Robots) Act was passed in 2018. The act bans the importation or transportation of any “anatomically-correct doll, mannequin, or robot, with the features of, or with features that resemble those of, a minor, intended for use in sexual acts.”
