Sex Dolls and Trauma: How Can a Sex Doll Help Someone Overcome Sexual Trauma?

When you’re young, in good shape, and willing to try new things, finding companionship and love can seem easy and like it’s waiting around every corner. But what if you don’t fit that criteria? What if you’re recovering from or working through a traumatic event in your life and are having a hard time being around people you love, much less those you haven’t met yet? You could be older and nervous to date again but are missing the deep connection you had when you had a significant other. Or you could be one of the 15 million adults in the United States that suffers from social anxiety disorder. If you fit any of these criteria, a sex doll may be of help to you.

Sexual trauma

While a sex doll sounds like an unusual therapy aid for someone recovering from sexual assault or trauma, it could be just what the person needs. If you’ve been hurt by someone you loved and trusted, having a doll meet your basic needs can give back a sense of control, and there’s safety in knowing it’s just an object. The connection that you feel with it is based completely on your comfort level at the time, so you can get as intimate with the doll as you want, and stop everything on your terms. It can also work as a transition piece. If you are ready to be intimate again, but need help working up to making that connection with someone, high tech sex dolls can help to get you comfortable around someone else, and it’s a great way to find out what you feel safe with and what really pleases you, so you can better communicate it to your eventual human partner.

The elderly and sex dolls

Those that live in assisted living homes may not be around anyone they’re physically attracted to and may not have the resources to get out to meet other people. The rise in STDs among older people in recent years has also given some pause on who they spend their time with. A doll can provide companionship and can (and should) be cleaned regularly and only used by one person (if that’s what you want). With a doll, you can have the real experience of being with someone without any of the risk. This is especially true with dolls that are warm to the touch and that are programmed to say certain phrases.

Social anxiety disorder

A doll doesn’t have to be used for scenarios of a sexual nature, necessarily. There are some that make the investment for the feeling of simply having someone else around. Those that suffer from anxiety disorders may benefit from having a doll as it makes them feel less alone while not having to navigate the perils and pitfalls of usual human interactions. If being around people is something that causes severe anxiety for you, but you don’t want to be alone, this could be a compromise for you. Not only are you in control of the interactions, but you’re also the one who gets to decide when they happen and when they end.

Sex dolls sound like an unconventional way to deal with past trauma, social anxiety, or loneliness, but given the right scenario and the right dolls, they could be the cure (temporary or permanently) for whatever’s ailing you.
