My fake plastic love

Below is a link to a disturbing, creepy and sad BBC documentary, that is also fascinating. It is about lonely men who own realistic sex dolls (made from silicone) and how they treat them as their girlfriends...

WARNING: This documentary is not appropriate viewing material for children or those who are easily offended. It is however a BBC documentary so gladly there's no footage of depraved sexual acts.

Once you've watched the multiple parted documentary, I recommend listening to the fantastic Radiohead track 'Fake Plastic Trees'...

  • Where was actually a movie on this subject called Lars and the Real Girl released a couple years ago. I've never seen the whole thing, but the parts I watched made it seem pretty watchable.

    I remember hearing about that film but I had forgotten what it was called. Thanks for the reminder, I'll check it out in the next few days. I heard that it was surprisingly uplifting and non-judgemental.

  • Aw man. I wish I was as cool as those guys.

  • These guys are so creepy. I mean I don't have any issues with people owning such a thing in general--if they want to spend that much money on what is essentially just a sex toy--but it's pretty disturbing in the cases where they start to treat it like a real person. "She's still sleeping." Yeah, no kidding pal, she hasn't developed sentience yet?

    I totally agree. It's their right to do what they please as long as their not hurting anyone but I really feel that the 4k+ would have been better spent on extensive therapy. Also, the man saying "She's still sleeping" was funny and upsetting all at once.

  • Indeed. I stopped watching when the guy was giving his doll a foot massage. Really? Is she enjoying that?

    I get more interaction from video game characters than that.

    edit: okay, I did watch the rest of it. Really it's more sad than creepy.

    I just surfed on over to the Realdoll website after watching the video. In addition to the dolls, they also sell ... just ... parts. Got a foot fetish? Good news! You can just buy feet.

    Yuck.

    That's actually a really good movie. Totally pays off.

    Absolutely, the reason I used the word creepy is because it was bound to be what most people will think at first but I was sure to also use the word sad as well because my sympathies lie with these troubled individuals.

    I and I'm sure many others can relate to what it feels like to be profoundly lonely and depressed, even if we may not understand the need to take things to such an extreme by projecting all your love upon an inanimate, silicone object.

    Okay, that's it! If I ever win the lottery then I'm going to go all Dr. Frankenstein and s**t by building my very own monstrosity; with nine heads, seventeen arms, twenty-six legs, plus ninety-nine dongs and hoo-hoo's.

  • surely they cannot all be troubled?
    I mean they can afford those things, they know what they want enough to be ok with buying it, and they have what they want.
    Seems a more content, fulfilled lifestyle than many people.
