Book your flights to Spain, everyone. The West’s first sex doll brothel opened in Barcelona this week.

LumiDolls (NSFW) claims to be the “first sex doll agency.” The rates for these high-tech silicone figures start at 80-euros (or about $85) for one hour. There are four LumiDolls currently available: Blonde Katy, redheaded Lily, African Leiza, and blue-haired “Japanese anime character” Aki.

The description of the latter is no exaggeration, by the way. Aki is a dead ringer for anime singer Hatsune Miku, and her description says this [when run through Google Translate]:

Have you ever imagined moments of intimacy with any of those anime characters that you like? With Aki it will be possible and you will be more than satisfied.

LumiDolls assures its customers that the “realistic dolls” are clean and that the service is discreet. Considering you can choose everything from the girl to what she wears to what pose she’s in when you get there, we hope that’s true.

Broadly was quick to point out that the opening of the brothel coincides with the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona. They implied this could be to capitalize on the “cash-rich, socially awkward” techbros who attend such shows, but there is another explanation.

Prostitution is not illegal in Spain, per se. But according to the American State Department, human trafficking in the sex trade is common there. For lonely people in Barcelona the LumiDolls are a far less ethically-fraught option.

Of course, that is a lot of money for an hour with someone who can’t move.
