Channel 5 tonight are showing a documentary about people who use highly realistic life-size dolls for sexual satisfaction, dates, affection and even lifelong partnership. Featuring an American who gives his latex partner daily massages, a hang-gliding enthusiast who takes his synthetic friend to watch him practise his hobby and a man who shares his eight artificial lovers with his human girlfriend. Plus, a `doll doctor' allows cameras to film him carrying out repairs.
Rules are for the obedience of fools but for the guidance of wise men
Many years ago when I was on a Search and Rescue unit, one of our crews was flying over the sea and they saw a naked body floating in the sea. They winched one of the crew down to recover it only to find it was a blow up doll.
It was brought back to base and the airframes guys 'repaired' it for a trophy.
