Maybe Shran studied an Earth cultural database and came to the conclusion that out of all human skin tones, 'Pink' was the only one you could use derogatorily without backlash.

I think the real question is, How long before the aliens (male, female, or other) were employed in the adult film industry? ;-)

Interesting notion. However, we aren't told that in ENT. And, even if that was presented as a reason, it would be an interesting study on racial terms for humans - and, how those terms exist in the 22nd century. Not too mention, a teaching moment for first contacts who see humans a certain way or use certain terms for humans that may be partial to some - based on their gender or skin color.

That doesn't seem unrealistic...

I can even see certain parts of the adult film industry run by Orions or certain Ferengi...

If Earth was introduced to holosuites in addition to the alien women in our current time.

Oh my God....

Race and gender issues still seem to be present in Kirks era as well as Picard/Sisko/Janeway's...era (e.g. Star Trek Ongoing #29, Star Trek VI, DS9 episode: 'Badda-Boom Badda-Bing,' the novel Crisis on Centaurus and I'm sure there others).
Still? You're talking about a body of fiction all written in the 20th and early 21st centuries. Those making the most noise about it ("first woman", "first black", "first latino") are the ones with the problem.

Re: What if? - Andorian, Vulcan, Romulan, Orion Women in Our Time.

This is a company that makes realistic sex dolls.

https://www.realdoll.com/

They were featured some years ago on HBO's Real Sex series, showing how they are made. You can check the site to see how real they look, and they make both genders.

I have considered asking them if they could do fantasy characters like Trek aliens, but as I do not have the thousands of $ for one, I didn't see a point. Still, it could be fun to have a naked female Andorian just sitting around the house.

Looking at the photos on that site, you would need to be flexible on the use of the word "realistic."

They are good enough to fool HOV traffic cameras. Besides, how "realistic" would an Andorian, Orion, or Cheronite sex doll really look? It is the fantasy aspect after all.
