The Real Doll Maker
Meet Matt McMullen, the creator of the Real Doll, those wondrous masterpieces of workmanship that are part sex toy, part work of art. In this video from California is a Place, McMullen describes how the first doll came to be.

Here’s a snippet from the video:
I was always driven to sculpt females and it just evolved. This was the logical progression of what I wanted to do with my artistic abilities and my desire to create.
I’ve always been sort of a recluse. I spent a lot of the time in the garage by myself. There were family I would show what I was doing — they all thought I was weird. And really, the original concept, I thought it would be a really cool mannequin for display stepping outside the bonds of your traditional mannequin, which are very super-modelesque — I wanted to do something with sexy curves.
I put up a website, I said “I’m making this really crazy mannequin” and I got a lot of people asking me by e-mail if these things were anatomically correct and if so could they order one. I realized early on this was the direction this was going to go and I went with it. I added in some obvious parts and there you go. The first Real Doll was born.
We dig it.
