FACT or FICTION? Hitler Invented the Inflatable Sex Doll…. Allegedly!

Ian Smith

So, get this, supposedly, Adolf Hitler ordered the manufacture of Aryan blow-up Sex dolls to discourage his troops of having  sexual intercourse with disease-ridden prostitutes.

Just to straight things up, before you bite our heads off, we don’t claim this fact as real.

The top-secret 1940 mission  entitled “Borghild Project” was inspired by SS chief Heinrich Himmler, who at one occasion sent the führer a memo, alerting the syphilis problem in the bordels in Paris.

The greatest danger in Paris is the widespread and uncontrolled presence of whores, picking up clients in bars, dance halls, and other places,” Himmler wrote. “It is our duty to prevent soldiers from risking their health just for the sake of a quick adventure.”

So, the worried Hitler immediately gave his approval to the project,  and designers set to work creating a smaller-than-life doll dubbed a “gynoid” under the supervision of Franz Tschackert at the German Hygiene Museum.

According to Rudolf Chargeheimer, a psychiatrist involved in the project, the doll was to have synthetic flesh that mirrored real flesh and its body should be as flexible as a real human.

The designers first approached the Hungarian actress Kathe von Nagy and asked if they could model the silicone doll on her, but after her refusal, the Nazis unsurprisingly opted for a blue eyed blonde version to “comfort” their soldiers.


After countless tests by Nazi troops in Jersey, 50 were finally ordered up for Himmler’s troops. But only two years later the project was reportedly canned when soldiers refused to carry the dolls due to the fear of embarrassment if they were captured and one was found in their possession.

Author Graeme Donald first discovered Nazi Germany’s sex doll project while investigating the history of the American Barbie doll for his book Mussolini’s Barber, which chronicles the most bizarre untold war tales.

“While I was researching this, I came across references to Nazi sex dolls and found out that Hitler had ordered them to be made,” Donald told The Sun. “As ever, more troops were laid low by disease than by bullets. Syphilis was a problem Hitler was aware of and he was rumored to have suffered from it himself.”

However,  this story was never proven that is not a hoax. The main supporting evidence for the project were two photographs purportedly rescued from the trash, which were later disproven as a hoax.

Furthermore, the existence of a journalist named Norbert Lenz has also been questioned, as there is no proof that he ever existed in the first place, nor has any employee at the German Hygiene Museum ever recalled the project ever existing, when asked.

So, was Hitler really the father of blow-up sex dolls, we’ll never know.
