While the increasing imports of sex dolls serve to comfort lonely men in Korea, they're also frightening some men, particularly garbage collectors.

According to the Kookmin Ilbo, a Korean-language daily newspaper, a garbage collector recalled his frightening encounter with a sex doll at work.

"I saw a bit of hair in the trash pile and pulled at it assuming it to be a wig," the newspaper quoted him as saying in an online post. "What I got was a beheaded woman. Can you imagine how much that frightened me at first (assuming it was a real dead body)?"

He went on to say that instead of throwing away the doll as a whole, "the owner dismembered the doll and wrapped the parts separately. The head wasn't wrapped tight enough. When I saw the decapitated head, my heart stopped. My hands are still shivering. Those wishing to buy sex dolls, please think also about how to properly dispose of them."

It's not the first such incident, according to the newspaper.

A man in Gwangju, Gyeonggi Province, found a body in a local lake last May, which turned out to be a sex doll. In Thailand, a sex doll found at a tourist beach resulted in calls to the local police.

Sex dolls are both imported and manufactured in Korea. The number of sex dolls in the country is expected to grow after the Korea Customs Service lifted additional import bans last month.
