One Japanese man has spent $170,000 to build an army of nearly a hundred ultra-realistic sex dolls made by Orient Industry. Apparently he's part of the fever taking over middle-aged Japanese men, who buy these $850 to $5,500 silicon zombies with 35 movable joints out of desperation. But fear not, this story has a happy end. And a NSFW picture gallery.
The man who spent the $170,000 in this plastic harem justifies it by saying that "a human girl can cheat on you or betray you sometimes, but these dolls never do those thing. They belong to me 100 percent." He also argues that it costs him too much money and time to get into a woman's knickers, and these ones are only "one-click away," referring to the online ordering method.
He watches TV with them, talks to them, bathes them, gets all waawaaweewaa and does his thing all over them. Then I guess he bathes them again. Hopefully. But really, let me get this straight: a man is afraid of women, says they are too-high maintenance, then gets almost a hundred zombies to take care of them like classic cars? And not even to take over the world by installing servos and AI units in them?
Madness, I say! Utter preposterous madness! According to Orient Industry's CEO Hideo Tsuchiya, "more and more men are finding themselves miserable so we're making these dolls partly in support of men."
Shame on you, Mr. Tsuchiya, shame on you! And where's our review unit, anyway? [Reuters - Thanks Alex!]
