Definitely not your Tinder date

Not long ago, Swiss researcher Oliver Bendel warned that having sex with robots could mean the death of the human race. Westworld fans were dismayed; the rest of us were a mix of alarmed and confused.

What Bendel didn’t mention, however, was doing the deed with sex dolls… which is great news for patrons of a new establishment in Barcelona called LumiDolls, Europe’s very first sex doll brothel.

Clients of the “agency” will pony up between 80 and 120 euros for the service, which can last an hour, an hour and a half, or two hours. Custom prices can also be arranged for special services like whole nights and couples.

The hyper-lifelike dolls come in four models: blonde Katy, Asian-featured Lily, dark-skinned Leiza, and Japanese anime character Aki. The website promises they are “totally realistic dolls, both in the movement of their joints and in their feel, that will allow you to fulfill your fantasies without any limit.”

Should you be worried that the experience of shacking up with a sex doll would be cold and unfulfilling, LumiDolls promises every effort is made to ensure comfort. Each room boasts candlelight, a large plasma TV, and a collection of films to set the mood. Guests can request how they want their doll to be dressed and positioned, and share any other details that will help the agency create the perfect experience.

Broadly was quick to point out that the brothel’s debut comes just in time for Mobile World Congress, a major European tech festival currently being held in Barcelona. Could it be that LumiDolls scheduled its launch to coincide with the city’s influx of rich, socially awkward tech bros? And could this be the birth of a new kind of tourism?

Time and horniness will tell.
