by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy – Barbie Dolls or Baby Dolls?
Editor’s note: A piece in which Debi is threatened by the perceived sexuality of a doll. A doll. An inanimate lump of plastic…and she’s saying that Barbies are a ‘hands-on’ porn in prisons and military barracks? I can honestly say during my husband’s years in the military that the times I’ve been in military barracks I have yet to see a Barbie doll on display.
Many parents have expressed concern over Barbie-like dolls. Other mothers defend Barbie by pointing out that they enjoyed the dolls without any harm. “It didn’t hurt me,” is the usual reply. I wonder, Mama, if indeed it didn’t hurt you. Do you sometimes have a strange, sexually compelling thought life? I have talked to many women who confess the struggle they have with lustful daydreams, imagining themselves to be sexy, beautiful dolls (a most appropriate word in this case). Yet they confess to not functioning well with their own husbands. What is the root of their problem? What caused make-believe to be more satisfying than the real world? Could it be they were trained from a small child to play make-believe (daydream) when they were given a sexy little doll to dress and undress?
Many would argue that Barbie-type dolls are not sexy, but the real world says something else. It is very common in men’s prisons and military barracks to find Barbie dolls in various stages of undress sitting in prominent places. It is a kind of hands-on pornography which they seem to find very gratifying. Did you know that some of Barbie Dolls’ biggest fans are middle age men?
