Media of women is used for selling commercial products, entertainment, masturbation, etc. Female beauty and sexual attractiveness are on the forefront of technological progress. Online debates are waged over who the most perfect female is, what size her breasts are, what colour of hair is more attractive. The lines between Realdolls and women that look like dolls are blurred in the online space.
