Guys and Dolls (Documentary on Real Dolls)

Did a search and couldn't find a thread on this. Video is slightly NSFW due to some doll nudity:

<embed id=VideoPlayback src=http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docid=-7277801797935788405&hl=en&fs=true style=width:400px;height:326px allowFullScreen=true allowScriptAccess=always type=application/x-shockwave-flash> </embed>

The first guy was damn creepy. The others seem like decent guys if they just put a little bit more effort in self confidence and looks.

Re: Guys and Dolls (Documentary on Real Dolls)

^ I was thinking the same thing. Either that, or there's a lot of money to be made in Real Doll documentaries.

"I think the problem my father has with my relationship with Sheshawn is that she is not alive. You know, she's not a human being. He sees it as unnatural and strange."

Okay, so that dad seems fairly normal.

Could be worse, he could be hanging around funeral homes and cemetaries.

Re: Guys and Dolls (Documentary on Real Dolls)

I think DaveKat would do fairly well if he sucked it up (pun slightly intended), admitted he was gay, and got himself a nice boyfriend. Hell, I'd sleep with him and I'm not even gay.

I was very sympathetic towards the old English guy. Nice guy, has other non-RealDoll activities, can't be arsed to feign interest in football in order to shag a bird or two, buys a few hollow female receptacles instead. Kind of envy him, honestly.

The rock and roll guy seemed like a Mr. Show sketch.

The last guy was clearly the worst. Had an actual (ugly, but normal) girlfriend, yet still felt the need to own 7 or 8 of the damn things, all with horrendously large, unnatural breasts. This man clearly has a problem.

Can a Real Doll have natural breasts?

Proportionally, yes.

My favorite part of the film is where the repair guy admits to using a few of the dolls he's repaired. I imagine some of these guys that are so attached to theirs freaking out about that fact, and they'll never be able to know for sure if their doll was one of these.

If I had a few of them, I'd just open up a boutique clothing shop and use them as mannequins. Hidden in plain sight! I picture the average sales day would go something like "Sir, does this skirt really cost $75?" "No, no... that's just how much it is to have sex with the display. The skirt is only $25."

There are at least 2 different documentaries out there that have been posted here multiple times--Usually with an odd title that probably wont show up under 'real dolls'.

Re: Guys and Dolls (Documentary on Real Dolls)

I've seen this before on HBO or something. You've got to have some serious social issues if a doll has become your soulmate. Spend the money on hookers, at least.

Re: Guys and Dolls (Documentary on Real Dolls)

I like when the company is like "One guy wanted hair up to the belly button and all around to the back, and that's where we draw the line."

Really? I surprised that A. A company that makes sex dolls for 4 to 6k a piece HAS A LINE, and B, That it's actually been crossed.

I disagree. I think it's much better and safer for society if people spend money on these dolls instead of hookers. But I do agree that these people have some serious social issues.

Stores the dolls in his garage, only uses them for sex, not for love or companionship, doesn't seem to lack social skills, etc... That guy is the most "normal" of the bunch to me. All the other guys exhibited serious self-esteem and social interaction issues.

On a related note what if they started making child dolls for pedophiles? Would society be safer if they had a doll to supress their urges?

I'd like to dress one in a bikini and put it in a dog kennel and when people come over and get that WTF look, I could say "don't talk to her, she's been naughty" and then throw a blanket over the cage.

They would be indulging in their urges, not suppressing them. As far as whether or not society would be better, I don't know. Do pedophiles go after children because they look like children, or because of some other reason? I'm guessing if fake child porn is illegal, fake children for the use of sex would be illegal.

Re: Guys and Dolls (Documentary on Real Dolls)

Yeah, I guess the one guy isn't that bad. Been a while since I've seen the whole movie. I think my logic was that if he can afford multiple $6k sex dolls, he makes enough money to keep a pretty high class broad around on a permanent basis.

The first prototypes of the Real Dolls were more or less "Child Size." They developed them at a smaller scale, so they were like 3'7" or somewhere around there. I had a theory that if they were to issue child-like versions to sex offenders, it would increase child molestation since a lot of people would commit the crime for a "free" Real Doll.

That is retarded. Pay for a hooker over and over again or get one of these dolls and use it for a much longer time (maybe even forever? I don't know how long they last), without the risk of STDs. From a health standpoint alone, the choice is simple, not to mention financially.

If money and STDs are your concern, you could just jerk it for free. If you're looking to make a connection with someone, you're going to need to interact with a human being.

Oh come the fuck on. They clearly want to have sex with a woman without the risk of actually talking to one. In that respect, these dolls are the perfect simulacrum and STD free. Yes, sure they could pretend their hand is a woman and jerk off, but along with all that comes the obvious mess on their hand, which donates alot towards breaking the illusion. This doll makes pretending just a little easier.

I really can't believe I had to explain the obvious logistics of why people get Real Dolls to you. Making a connection? Hah. The people who get these things outright fear those connections, for what they picture as the almost inevitable rejection that may come from trying to make them.

This is fucking creepy. If they have that big of a fear of talking to women or getting rejected then they need professional help and possibly medications to get through it. Not everyone can talk to women well, me included, but I would still never go this route. Every one of those guys could get a woman if they got their self esteem up and stopped acting like a creepy serial killer.
