Sex dolls seem to be causing so much trouble now to the point that people are beginning to think of using it for family planning, just to be sure pregnancy does not occur by mistake. 

But this practice is not something a Family Planning Consultant, Appolonia Eke, will support.

She is warning couples to stay away from the use of sex dolls as an alternative family planning method 

“It is sodomy,” she said. 

Eke, who is also the Financial Secretary, Public Health Sustainable Advocacy Initiative, gave this opinion on Thursday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

Talking about sodomy, it has been referred to as anal or oral sex between people or sexual activity between a person and a non-human animal (bestiality), but it may also mean any non-procreative sexual activity.

"Originally, the term sodomy, which is derived from the story of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Book of Genesis, 4 was commonly restricted to anal sex."

She said that the use of sex dolls was unscriptural and should not be encouraged.

According to her, it is like having intercourse with an inanimate object which the scripture strongly objects to.

“The use of sex dolls as a means of family planning is sodomy and should not be encouraged.

"It is like having an intercourse with a dead person or an inanimate object.

"The scripture is very clear about sex and it forbids having it with either the dead or animals.

"Aside that, there may be other consequences, including electrocution of the user, because sex doll is attached to electrical appliances for it to work.

"The user may be electrocuted because it is powered by electricity and such thing should not be associated with family planning methods," she said. 

The consultant also gave some advice on child spacing. 

Eke said that there should be adequate rest for the mother before the next conception, adding that frequent childbirth was dangerous to the health of the mother.

“The best method to control childbirth is through family planning which Lagos State Government had made more affordable now.

“The woman should be given adequate rest before the next conception because the womb needs rest.

“It is like an apple shaped structure which is being scrapped on the surface.

“The walls of the womb needs rest after childbirth, because it is enlarged after the childbirth and needed to contrast after childbirth; frequent enlargements will not help the womb to heal.

“If this is not adhered to, it can lead to death and high maternal mortality rate we are talking about,’’ she said.
