Zambia, in southern Africa, has launched a massive crackdown on the fast developing industry and plans to come down hard on offenders.
The dolls are facing stiff opposition from leading officials in the Christian nation.
Now ministers have reportedly banned the selling of, and use of, sex dolls following other African countries such as Zimbabwe and Botswana.
But the topic has divided opinion on social media with people for and against the fake plastic women, reports the Daily Star.
Godfidah Somali, the minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs, said:
‘Being a Christian nation, obviously we are anchored in principles and one of the values is morality and ethics.
‘The use of sex dolls is definitely in contradiction to our natural heritage and our principles.
‘The law actually forbids anybody to trade and to use such objects and so this why we are saying for Zambians that this is a very unnatural thing.
‘God created man and women for sexual satisfaction, but for a man or woman to use lifeless objects is immoral.
It emerged sex dolls are popular in at least one African nation.
Lifelike 60kg love dolls are booming after being imported into South Africa for the first time ever.
In just 10 days every single silicone model sold at R16,000 (£1,000).
