We at Sex Doll Canada are always asked:

  • Is it legal to buy a sex doll?
  • What dolls are allowed to import safely?
  • Do you have compact dolls?

In general, sex dolls are perfectly legal in Canada and inflatable dolls can be found in any Adult Novelty shop. So, what's the big deal with high end real silicone and TPE sex dolls?

In fact, it has nothing to do with the material the doll is constructed of that could blur the lines of legality - it all has to do with whether or not the doll resembles, or portrays a child.

Sex Doll Canada only sells adult sex dolls that could not be confused to portray the likeness of a child (which is considered "obscene", by legal definition).

There are many models offered by our manufacturers, primarily for the Asia-market, that we simply will not offer in order to protect our customers, and ourselves, from negative potential financial, and criminal, penalties. These are the models that may be considered "obscene".

Because of the Harmonized Tax code used for mannequins (which is how sex dolls are almost always imported), Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has an obligation to inspect the shipments during the import process to ensure they do not contain "obscene content", thereby violating the Criminal Code of Canada.

If you buy from Sex Doll Canada, as the doll *ALWAYS* ships to us first, our customer is completely isolated from this inspection process! Our customers are not identified on any import documentation, and the CBSA works with us directly to resolve any potential issues.

If a Customs Officer examines the doll and believes the doll resembles a child, they will ask for an opinion of a second offer. If both officers agree that the doll being imported resembles a child, then the Importer of Record (i.e. Sex Doll Canada) then faces a serious issue. The burden of proof lays on the Crown to prove, before the Courts, that the material is considered "obscene", by legal definition.

 

As per the CBSA Memorandum D9-1-1:

"The courts have ruled that subsection 152(3) of the Customs Act is not to be construed and applied so as to place the onus on an importer to establish that goods are not obscene within the meaning of subsection 163(8) of the Criminal Code. The burden of proving obscenity rests on the Crown, in this case the CBSA, who is alleging it."

 

Here are some excerpts from a legal battle which has made headlines in Canada:  

"The lawyer for a St. John's man charged with possession of child pornography is suggesting a sex doll depicts an adult woman, not a child. The doll was shipped to Kenneth Harrisson, 52, in St. John's in March 2013.

Kenneth Harrisson, 52 is on trial for possession of child porn. Crown alleges he had a child sex doll shipped to him. (Glenn Payette/CBC News).

Harrisson is charged with possessing child porn, and with violating the Customs Act for smuggling the doll into Canada and is on trial in Newfoundland and Labrador provincial court.

An expert witness called by the Crown, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Peter Collins, has testified that in his opinion the doll is child pornography because it depicts a child and is meant for sexual purposes."

Great question Marky! Sorry for the slow reply. There are no “firm” guidelines on this. It comes down to a matter of opinion. If you are interested in a smaller-size sex doll because of cost, practicality, etc., but are worried your doll may not look “old enough”, then CHOOSE ANOTHER DOLL!

All the dolls we offer are, in our personal opinion, clearly and obviously depicting adults not just because of their size, but because of their proportions and overall appearance, all taken in consideration with their size.

Just wondering if there is a certain size that the doll has to be in order to be considered a child?
