Better Than Action Figures
"Real love is hard to find for one Japanese man, who has transferred his affection and desires to dozens of plastic sex dolls. When the 45-year-old, who uses a pseudonym of Ta-Bo, returns home, it's not a wife or girlfriend who await him, but a row of dolls lined up neatly on his sofa."
Why collect those sexed-up comix statues when you can shell out $5000 and get one of these gals?
"Sometimes it takes too much time before I can have sex with the person I meet. But with these dolls, it's just a matter of a click of the mouse. With one click, they are delivered to you."
(weeps for humanity)
"The man, who says he has had sex with five women but prefers the dolls, is one of a gradually increasing, though secretive, group of Japanese men who have given up on women."
The president of the company who makes the "love dolls" commented,
"Nowadays, women are sometimes more dominant than men in the real world, and they don't always pay attention to men. More and more men are finding themselves miserable so we're making these dolls partly in support of men."
