The above story is about a Japanese man who lives with over twenty love dolls in his tiny apartment. Each love doll cost him around US$6000 each. He doesn’t worry about scaring away potential lovers because “he’s given up on the idea of dating and marrying a woman in the real world.”
Love dolls are not a new idea (even dogs have them). So while having sex with a love doll may not be a common thing, it isn’t that strange either. Though living with that many and being happy about it certainly is.
Whilst we are on the subject of sex toys … the Metafilter post where I got this story from has some links to some other odd and innovative sex toys, including one called “The Cone” which allows for simultaneous use by both partners. Use your imagination. 😉
