There has been a debate over non-offending pedophiles being allowed to own a sex doll that represents a young child.

Is it wrong to the point that it should be illegal?

Would allowing pedophiles using that doll enable their desires and eventually lead them into sexually assaulting children?

If they become illegal isn't that really going against liberty, they are not hurting anyone are they?

Should the dolls be allowed but regulated toughly?

I would personally discourage any pedophile from using a child sex doll because it is messed up beyond comprehension however I can't say that I stand for Liberty and say child sex dolls should be criminalised when it fact they don't go against the non-aggression principle of libertarianism. 

It is a weird issue but I believe the production and distribution of them should be regulated to ensure they are not promoted and not sold to children themselves. 

I am willing to be persuaded. If you think they shouldn't be regulated at all try to persuade me, if you think they should be illegal try to persuade me also.

Oh boy, this is a really tought one. Morally, I think it's appalling to even suggest that child sex dolls should be a thing. It's disgusting, and no one wants to ever have to see or hear about such a thing. On the other hand, I strongly do believe in the saying "No victim, no crime". And since no one is being harmed here, that means it is okay in principle. I also think that these could actually help pedophiles. They certainly wouldn't cause pedophiles to go out and sexually assault children, I think it's quite the opposite. They will always have the same desires, and if anything, not having a way to satisfy those desires would be worse, since that's when they're more likely to lash out and assault children. Obviously child pornography is not the way to go, since child pornography requires a child to have been sexually assaulted in order for it to exist (unless of course it's animated). But a child sex doll could perhaps be a good way to satisfy a pedophiles urges and prevent them from going any further.

To me this is entirely morals versus principles, and as much as it almost disgusts me to think about, I have to say that I think they should be allowed, but I don't think they should be easy to purchase. Maybe the only way to get one should be through a doctor or some other path like that, that way someone is also aware of the fact that you are a pedophile and they can check up on you.

Ideally, I'd rather pedophiles be fucking child-shaped dolls than actual children. It's hard to make any opinion here without any objective data. 

My knee-jerk reaction is to say no to (most) things being outright banned. I see little good taking away one of a pedophile's few sexual outlets, especially if they keep a pedophile from preying on real kids. I'm of the opinion that so long as people (including kids age < 18) aren't being harmed, they can have that outlet. This relies on an assumption that pedophiles aren't necessarily predators and that sexual outlets stave off predatory behavior. 

That being said, I don't want pedophilia normalized as a fetish. I don't know how I would feel about these products becoming popular; without data, it's harder to speculate.  What if these child-sized dolls caught on because they were more affordable? I doubt that would happen if they looked like kids, but what if they dolls were made so that they could look like children (picture something like an adult build-a-bear workshop)?  That seems more realistic, given the internet, but does that layer of nuance change anything? I find it hard to draw a moral line here, but there could be something I'm overlooking.

If one wanted a sex doll and a company sold high quality dolls of varying prices and sizes, it could be that the smaller ones are less expensive because they use less materials. Should they be banned on the sole principal that they look like children, or that they're sex toys and look like children? What if the product was child-sized but the customer had to make them look like children? Would you want their fucked up sexual needs to stop you from being able to buy a blank toy? And if not, why is it wrong for the company to bridge that gap for their customer?

All of those questions could be invalidated by the right data, so I'm up in the air as it stands now. The only thing that I can be certain about is that these dolls (or their sexual parts) will be restricted to adults due to their nature. I feel that is the most fair regulation you can put on the products since it already limits access to children and makes it illegal for them to be exposed to it. Anymore regulation could easily become a bureaucratic nightmare and another taxpayer burden.
