Doll fetishism is a sexual fetish in which an individual is attracted to dolls and doll like objects such as figurines. The attraction may include the desire for actual sexual contact with a doll, a fantasy of a sexual encounter with an animate or inanimate doll, encounters between dolls themselves, or sexual pleasure gained from thoughts of being transformed or transforming another into a doll.
Doll fetishism is often played out as a role play between two or more people. The "doll" is often a female or male dressed to resemble a Barbie doll in shape: bold hair, enhanced breasts, small waist (normally from a very tight corset), high heels and a revealing outfit made from rubber, latex or spandex.
Some individuals enjoy seeing their partners' unique characteristics minimized and adapted in favour of more uniform doll-like features.
Virtual worlds offer unique opportunities for exploring this fetish, where individuals are represented by modifiable avatars. Players can adorn themselves with plastic appearing skin, stereotypical hair and costumes, even going so far as to remove all distinguishing characteristics from other dolls in the environment and being identified by number instead of name. There are also fetish sites that feature videos and animated .gif pictures of individuals achieving orgasm onto or by use of a small figurine.
The anime series Rozen Maiden features a cast of "living" dolls that, among various online communities, sparked an interest in the more classic style of porcelain dolls built with ball-joints at the apex of the arms and legs. In some instances (as seen on some numerous internet imageboards) the ball-joints themselves are considered the object of the fetish rather than the doll they are a part of, much like the armpit of an individual rather than the individual themselves.
