Shin Takagi, who created the dolls and admits he’s a paedophile, told the Sydney Morning Herald that he's an 'artist' who's on a mission to prevent child abusers from targetting children.

The sexualised dolls - which resemble children as young as five - are sold via his website, Trottla, to paedophiles across the globe

Takagi founded Trottla due to his struggles of reconciling with his attraction to children. For more than a decade, Trottla has shipped anatomically-accurate imitations of girls as young as five to clients around the world.

Some dolls are smiling while others are made to appear as if they are crying or in pain, which are made in a "variety of expressions to fulfill a variety of client needs".

He claimed his methods are legal and the dolls act as a substitute to satisfy the needs of paedophiles so they don't commit crimes against real children

“We should accept that there is no way to change someone’s fetishes. I am helping people express their desires, legally and ethically. It’s not worth living if you have to live with repressed desire," he said in an interview with The Atlantic.

According to Takagi, his clients - mostly men living alone - write and thank him for his products. His extensive clientele includes doctors, professionals and celebrities.

Takagi is convinced that his products save children. “I often receive letters from buyers,” he said. “The letters say, ‘Thanks to your dolls, I can keep from committing a crime.’ I hear statements like that from doctors, prep school teachers - even celebrities.”

Regardless if you think believe paedophiles can atone or be cured, child abuse is an epidemic that must be stopped

In June, a British man named Richard Huckle was convicted for sexually abusing 22 Malaysian kids and a Cambodian child in rural parts of Kuala Lumpur.

It is equally important to be cautious of businessmen like Shin Takagi, who continue to find loopholes in the system to be able to validate and humanise vile, degrading and soul-crushing behavior, as well as profit from it.

Huckle is believed to have sexual assaulted more than 200 young victims in his time as a Christian counsellor:
