A s*x doll is seen on a bed at the doll brothel “Dollhaus” in Speyer, Germany, 10 December 2018. The “Dollhaus” is the first brothel with s*x dolls only in Germany. The “Dollhaus”, in Speyer, is the brainchild of businessman Raphael Abelmann who says his girls – including ladyboy versions – are the future of the s*x industry.  He believes many others are curious to try s*x with a doll but they just don't have the cash or the space to buy one of their own. It costs nearly $2,250 to buy each flexible doll, however they can be “rented” from just $75 a time at the “Dollhaus”. (Photo by Ronald Wittek/EPA/EFE)
