umm am i the only one that felt very uncomforatble by the tlc show?
if you missed it, its basically a show about odd-ball addictions. tonights episode was about a 37 year old male who purchased a silicone doll whom he named. he said he first bought it for sexual purposes and then explained how shes his wife now. the doll even has a matching wedding band with him. i always thought of life sized dolls as a joke but this guy takes it (or should i say her) as serious as a heart attack.
he seriously gave me the creeps

I was just gonna say OP should watch “Lars and the Real Girl.” I thought it was really good.

I thought that it was slow. But as far as the story line, I think it was good. Still VERY strange.
Yeah it had Ryan Gosling. It was a pretty sad movie really.

I saw some “Real Sex” type show (it wasn’t real sex, it was on like Discovery or something but it talked about weird sexual fetishes) and they talked to 3-4 of these guys. They all talked about their dolls as if they were real and said things like: “It’s better than a real woman.” so I guess at least this guy isn’t alone?

@Taylor4: I saw that!
I think Lars and the Real Girl was a different situation… he didn’t buy it for sex, he bought it for company. I thought Lars was very sweet.
The guy on My Strange Addiction – creeper to the max. I wonder how a guy like that could actually ever respect a real woman after “owning” a synthetic woman he controls every aspect of and is open and willing at his command.

That was a totally bizarre episdoe.
I actually feel very sorry for him. He is probably very lonely and unsocial 🙁
But seriously…when I saw the beginning of the episode, I thought it was some sort of sex fantasy thing but he like, really considers her his wife. Dresses her everyday, says he feels “bad that she’s cooped up in the house all day”…so unhealthy.
I didn’t see the end of the episode but the whole time, I kept thinking “How will this end…” at what point does this guy give it up? So bizarre.
