WARNING: Child sex doll possession to attract 10-year jail terms under proposed SA ban

A South Australian MP says the “disturbing” and “sickening” items resembling young children have the potential to encourage paedophiles to commit abuse.

“The idea that people can be found in possession of sex dolls that not only look like young children, children as young as five … [is] not only repugnant but completely inappropriate and at odds with community standards,” Ms Bonaros said.

“Experts warn that these kinds of perverse, sickening dolls can normalise abusive behaviour towards children, encourage the sexualisation of children and increase the likelihood that a paedophile will engage in sexual activity with or towards children.”

ALERT- watch: Tropical Storm Dorian forms in Atlantic: See forecast track into next week

On Saturday, a newly formed tropical depression has strengthened into Tropical Storm Dorian, the fourth tropical storm of this year’s Atlantic hurricane season.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says Tropical Storm Dorian is moving west and could reach hurricane strength Tuesday before it interacts with Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic on Wednesday and Thursday.

After Thursday, it’s too soon to tell where Dorian might go next and if it’ll be able to maintain its strength.

At 4 p.m. Saturday, the storm’s center was located at about 725 miles (1,165 kilometers) east-southeast of Barbados and was moving west at 12 mph (19 kph). Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 40 mph (64 kph).
