For me there is a link. At least with my first doll. Being 1. an artist and 2. bisexual (pan really). I am mostly attracted to androgyny as mentioned before. I especially love boyish girls, which I have used in the faceup and clothing choices of my first doll, Izzy. I don't wank off to her or anything like that, but she is an expression of what I find beautiful or interesting. As I believe most dolls are for people. Why would someone own a doll that they did not enjoy? That being said, I don't think everyone's doll choices are sexual. That would make 1/4 and 1/2 doll owners very creepy people indeed.
