The House of Representatives in the United States has passed a landmark bill banning sex dolls that resemble children. The bill is headed to the Senate where it would likely be approved.

The legislation, known as Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedolphilic Robots Act, was passed on Wednesday and would prohibit the import of childlike sex dolls, robots or mannequins into the United States.
 
“There is a correlation between possession of the obscene dolls, and robots, and possession of and participation in child pornography,” reads the bill, the first law to prevent selling and distributing of child sex dolls and robots in the U.S.
 
“Dolls like these are customizable to include accessories such as false eyelashes and wigs, and settings to change facial expressions to fear and sadness. Some robots have settings that stimulate rape, which the House legislation says makes “rape easier by teaching the rapist about how to overcome resistance and subdue the victim.” The robots, imported from China, Hong Kong or Japan, are labeled as clothing mannequins or models in order to avoid detection,” The HuffPost reported.
