Living Doll II








Except this time, it's not from the Twilight Zone.

We have lots of fake stuff in our society. So why not fake partners?

This article in Salon is all about a company called Real Dolls:
Sidore and her plastic sisters are like Barbies dosed with growth hormones and plumbed with orifices (three). While there are other brands of deluxe love dolls, dolls like Sidore are considered head and breasts above their competitors because of their quality and realism. At the Real Doll Web site you can choose among nine body types, 14 faces, five skin tones, six eye colors, a palette of makeup colors, 10 wigs, and three different pubic hair styles. Save your pennies, and for $6,499 plus shipping, you can have your very own synthetic woman sent directly to your home.
Apparently, the owner of the company started out as an artist whose sculptures were so good he kept getting requests for "love dolls", sometimes with offers to pay thousands for such "toys". The guy decided to go into the business and now charges six, seven thousands dollars for a life-like silicone "partner. And you get to pick the features that you .... "desire?"

Why not? If someone is love-starved and unable to find the real deal it seems like a better substitute than some tactics that could be used to "meet one's needs".

BTW, there are male's for the .... well ... whoever.

Even stranger, there are now subscription porn web sites out there that contain photos/videos of people having sex with these dolls. I mean, it's one thing to act on such a fetish, but 'voyeuristic' doll sex is a little beyond my ability to comprehend...

People are strange. Personally, I would rather go without sex altogether. but, you know, different strokes for different folks.

One of the main characters on Nip/Tuck is a porn star. On one episode, she modeled for one of these "dolls". She showed it to one of the main characters and later on, he had sex with it. It was creeeeeepy!

Hell, if I was a woman I'd just buy a Sybian and forget men altogether. We're admittedly a lousy bunch, for the most part that is... ;)

Oh, yeah, for those who don't know what I was talking about above...

It's alledgedly the 'ultimate orgasm' machine for women...

It's good to see you can get "butt plugs" too!

Toys are great and everything...but they can't completely replace a warm body. Oh, and by the way, there are much more "user friendly" toys than the sybian. That darn thing weighed 22 pounds! LOL!
