Who Invented the 100cm Sex Doll?

Adolf Hitler is said to have invented the first inflatable 100cm sex doll.

In late July 2020, a reader shared a blog post from 2016 with the headline “Did Adolf Hitler really invent the Dutchwife?”. The post prompted many curious readers to ask whether the leader of the German Nazi Party actually invented inflatable real dolls, even though the article itself doesn’t actually mention it.

This article was posted on a website called The 13th Floor, a horror genre blog that focuses on stories that are inherently creepy and spooky. The post on The 13th Floor reads, “The Borghild Project was a top-secret attempt to stop the spread of syphilis by (supposedly) providing inflatable Dutch wives to Nazi soldiers. Yes, Hitler invented the blow-up doll!”

However, the writer also admitted that the Borgild project was a hoax. But the writer also admitted that the Borgild project was a hoax: “Unfortunately, the evidence to support that this actually happened is sketchy, so it’s probably not true. However, ‘Hitler invented the love doll’ is a great idea. We need to pretend that it happened anyway. I mean, what is Hitler going to do about it now?”

The prank seems to have originated in an undated post by supposed journalist NorbertLenz, who has published nothing else. That post, titled “The Borghild-project-III’s inconspicuous problem. It claims that the German Museum of Hygiene in Dresden, Germany, created the puppets, which were destroyed when the Allies bombed that city in 1945.

One author also sent an email to the museum documenting the history of medicine asking about the hoax but has yet to receive a response. We will update this article when we have an update.

Laurie Maher, an associate professor of history at the University of Washington, said in an email that the scam is built around “the very real concerns [Heinrich] Himmler expressed about German men, especially soldiers and SS men, being able to express heterosexuality. Sex drives, and regulated brothel and other syphilis prevention measures taken by the Nazi state. Many governments of the time did similar things. But the sex doll is a hoax.”

Elizabeth Heineman, a history professor at the University of Iowa and author of the book “Before Pornography Became Legal,” said there is no evidence that inflatable Dutch wives were available during World War II.

The [erotica] clientele was overwhelmingly veteran, and the industry offered a surprisingly wide range of products,” Heinemann told us in an email. Catalogs of such items “could exceed 150 pages by the mid-1950s,” she noted, but the items listed on those pages did not include inflatable love dolls.

If real dolls had existed – if men had memories of them or had heard rumors about them and now wanted to see them after returning to civilian life – they would not have shown up in 1950s erotica catalog,” Heinemann continued. But she added, “That’s not proof that they didn’t exist during the war. It just means they didn’t show up where we expected to see them.”

Nevertheless, there is no evidence that Hitler invented inflatable flat chested sex dolls, which he claimed looked like an urban legend. Therefore, I was told that this claim was “false”.
