In the interest of hearing both sides of a story we then heard from Matt McMullen: the founder, CEO and Creative Director of RealDoll changed all that.

The why in which he creates them however is from a good place, it may surprise you. You can see Matt's work at: www.realdoll.com (Must be over 18).
