Cairns man arrested for having sex with sex dolls

This is off topic, but this is the kind of story that is so bizarre that normally I would be writing about it as an “Only in America”, but this is an “Only in Queensland” one instead.

A 23 year old man from the Cairns suburb of Manunda has been charged with breaking and entering the Laneway Adult Shop in Cairns. The allegation is that he broke in several times, stole some blow up dolls, and a sex toy,blew some of the dolls up and had sex with them in the laneway outside the shop. On one occasion he is alleged to have stolen 5 dolls, and had sex with one of them in the laneway.

What? Did he take only the good looking ones home?

Apparently he was a discriminating sex doll thief- his preference was for a sex doll called Jungle Jane!

For a link to the Cairns Post with photos of the shop including a photo of a deflated, apparently used sex doll, click here.

Not surprisingly, the news has reached the world stage.

Planning to resolve: ADR in ART

ADR can help resolve disputes in ART cases. ADR is not limited to mediation and arbitration. Other types of informal dispute resolution can resolve disputes. When assisted reproductive treatment cases go off the rails, they can have the next level of bitterness and volatility. There can be a keen sense of betrayal when things don’t… Read More »Planning to resolve: ADR in ART
