The Sex Doll Channel has several videos about sex doll unboxing, each with thousands of views.

One of them is called "WM 161cm B cup Doll Unboxing" and features a presenter explaining the 'best' way to unbox a sex doll to avoid back injuries.

He explains that lifting the legs first is "standard procedure".

He then stands up on the bed where the box is and puts his elbows to his knees to support his back as he lifts the doll out of the box.

The dolls appear to be quite heavy and are often sent without their heads attached.

The fairly disturbing video continues with the presenter showing every aspect of the dolls body and showing off its different wigs.

Another video called "Sex Stuff | A.I. Sex Doll Review" features sex educator Zoe Ligon.

She meets a male doll that's capable of answering questions like "What is your favourite food?" and "Can I kiss you?"

She then 'tests out' the doll called Henry and seems fairly impressed, although did note that without heat it felt like kissing a cold unresponsive body.

Ligon also notes that sex dolls can cost tens of thousands of pounds and are quite heavy.

She concludes: "The world might be burning but at least there is beautiful sex dolls in it."

A lot of the comments under the videos appear to be positive but some users make derogatory and offensive comments about women whilst others are outraged by the whole concept.

One user commented underneath the "WM 161cm B cup Doll Unboxing" video "Feminists keep reporting you? I'm not surprised."

To which The Sex Doll Channel replied: "It's terrible. It will probably really hurt my income for a while but it's ok.

"I'm not going to let some losers keep us from spreading the truth. Thanks for watching!"

Most of the YouTube videos have a warning which reads: "This video may be inappropriate for some users."

What is a sex robot?

Robots already build our appliances, clean our homes and make our food – but now they're about to change how we get jiggy.

Sex robots are essentially realistic dolls that have sophisticated movements and "areas" that closely mimic humans so that they can romp.

Prof Noel Sharkey, chairman of the Foundation for Responsible Robotics, said guilt-free threesomes was just one of the potential uses for sex robots.

Others include “teledildonics” - wireless technology which allows a person to stimulate their partner remotely and already exists in vibrators on the market.

Sex bots will become hyper-realistic with features such as built-in heaters to create the feeling of body warmth.

They will also have sensors to react to your touch.

One company is even developing a head that can speak, smile and sing for its robot sex dolls.

Sex doll Harmony claims to be the first to offer an "emotional connection".

Experts say these specialised robots will start to appear in ordinary homes in the next decade.

In other news, a bizarre AI sex system lets you use Fitbit to track calories burned while ‘romping with virtual girlfriends’.

A robotic dildo sparked chaos at a tech conference earlier this year after organisers banned the "immoral" sex toy despite it winning a prestigious award.

And, a popular sex robot called Harmony has a saucy Scottish accent and privates that self-lubricate.
