Of Robots, Sex Dolls, And Babydolls – Silent Porn Star

Of Robots, Sex Dolls, And Babydolls – Silent Porn Star | Herstory | Scoop.it

The historical origins of the vodka robot babe: "This is just one in a series of “doll” works by Bellmer, a German Surrealist photographer, sculptor, printmaker, painter and writer, who was undoubtedly influenced by Oskar Kokoschka. Bellmer read Kokoschka’s published letters, which contained correspondence with his beloved Alma Mahler. Mahler was remained elusive, unobtainable in the depths of Kokoschka’s obsessive love; so Kokoschka commissioned a life-sized sex doll of her."
