The Sex Doll: A History
by Anthony Ferguson
McFarland Books
ISBN 978-0-7864-4794-7
RRP: AUD$35.00
Available from McFarland Books & Amazon

This scholarly study of the centuries-long history of fornicatory dolls examines the enduring obsession with creating an idealized, silent female sexual object and the manifestations of this desire through the ages in mythology, literature, art, philosophy and science. This particular sexual impulse has been expressed in a great variety of forms such as statues, mannequins, sex dolls, and gynoids (robots). In particular this study focuses on the evolution of the sex doll through its original incarnation as a sack cloth effigy, through the marketing of inflatable dolls, to the current elaborate cyber-technology figures, in an attempt to discover the hidden drives and desires which fuel this ongoing fantasy of creating a perfect, powerless, silent partner.

Official launch November 2010.  Pre-orders available on McFarland website and also on Amazon & Kindle.
