Sex Fact #63

The Barbie doll was based on a doll called Lilli, who was, in turn based on a German sex doll popular in the 1950s.

The eponymous Ken doll isn't scandal-free, either. The toy was named after and based on the son of a Mattel founder. The real-life Ken grew up "humiliated" by the link, and became a closeted gay man who died of complications relating to AIDS.
