Yes. Sex dolls are perfectly legal in Canada, inflatable dolls can be found in any Adult Novelty shop. So, what's the big deal with silicone / TPE sex dolls?

In fact, the concerns with legality has nothing to do with the material the doll is constructed of that could blur the lines of legality - it all has to do with whether or not the doll resembles, or portrays a child. All the dolls we offer are, in our personal opinion, clearly and obviously depicting adults not just because of their size, but because of their proportions and overall appearance, all taken in consideration with their size.

SEX DOLL RANCH and SEX DOLL CANADA only sells adult sex dolls that could not be confused to portray the likeness of a child (which is considered "obscene", by legal definition). There is no certain height requirement to be considered a child. If you are worried your doll may not look “old enough”, then CHOOSE ANOTHER DOLL! We will not advertise a doll threw our website if they are "HIGH RISK" of being confiscated buy CBSA buy looking too young. If it's listed on our website, its already passed inspection.

There are many models offered by our manufacturers, primarily for the Asia-market, that we simply will not offer in order to protect our customers, and ourselves, from negative potential financial, and criminal, penalties. These are the models that may be considered "obscene".

Because of the Harmonized Tax code used for mannequins (which is how sex dolls are almost always imported), Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has an obligation to inspect the shipments during the import process to ensure they do not contain "obscene content", thereby violating the Criminal Code of Canada.

If you buy threw  SEX DOLL CANADA,  the doll *ALWAYS* ships to them  first, YOU the  customer are completely isolated from this inspection process! Our customers are not identified on any import documentation, and the CBSA works with SEX DOLL CANADA  directly to resolve any potential issues.

If a Customs Officer examines the doll and believes the doll resembles a child, they will ask for an opinion of a second offer. If both officers agree that the doll being imported resembles a child, then the Importer of Record (i.e. Sex Doll Canada) then faces a serious issue. The burden of proof lays on the Crown to prove, before the Courts, that the material is considered "obscene", by legal definition.


As per the CBSA Memorandum D9-1-1:

"The courts have ruled that subsection 152(3) of the Customs Act is not to be construed and applied so as to place the onus on an importer to establish that goods are not obscene within the meaning of subsection 163(8) of the Criminal Code. The burden of proving obscenity rests on the Crown, in this case the CBSA, who is alleging it."
