The Real Stories documentary  Love Me, Love My Doll  features “RealDoll expert” Slade Fiero repairing life-size  sex toys.

RealDoll’s take one helluva pounding. And Slade’s job is to go in there and make the rough, broken and chaffed smoother than a rubber glove.

Slade works with Matt McMullen, creator of Abyss Creations, located in Southern California.

“The original concept I had was actually not a sex toy at all,” says McMullen… “It was intended to be a poseable mannequin, or simply a form of art.” He quickly noticed that a lot of people saw the dolls in an erotic way. The company makes about 300 RealDolls each year. A standard-issue model sells for $6,500, while a meticulously customized one can go for as much as $50,000.

Fiero traces his interest in dolls to playing with G.I. Joes and Barbie in his youth.

“I was born in 1960 so Joe was the guy I got to hang out with for those formative years.”

“Slade has a very important place in the doll world,” says Elena Dorfman, a photographer who documented that world in her 2005 book Still Lovers. “People are sending him their beloved—or at least a sex partner that they paid a lot of money for. They’re trusting him to fix her. It’s like sending someone you love to the doctor and hoping they’ll come out all right.”

RealDolls are created using Hollywood special effects technology and have orifices made of a special soft grade of silicone for people who want to 'enhance their sex lives', according to Abyss Creations literature. Standard female models sell for about $6000, males for $7000, and are sold only over the Internet. 'Shemales' and other special orders are also available. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
