Playthings by Liam Kerry

It’s ten thousand pounds for one of my dolls. Twenty for an Asian one. Little Chinese faces always fetch a higher price.

Failing medical school looked like the end of the world, but it only encouraged the entrepreneur in me, and I still get to use what I’ve learned. An incision here, a snipped tendon there, and all limb movement is lost. Then, a few stitches and viola! Eyes and mouths are closed for good. Stitching is important. It’s the hallmark of a good living doll.

The reviews I get are incredible. I'm the number one seller on the dark web.
