Sdtrk: ‘The headmaster ritual’ by the Smiths

For a while, I thought July was going to be a month without news, but after checking 4woods‘ site, I found I was wrong. Never has being wrong been so encouraging!

Her cheekbones kinda make her resemble one of my old supervisors

Not only did they add a spiffy new look to their site, but they’ve revealed another Synthetik sexpot in the A.I.NEO line, Naomi. And coincidentally enough, they’ve done so on the Missus’ birthday, no less!
Now, if only I could get a Naomi-type as a present — for, ah, Shi-chan, of course… A job well done, 4woods!

Speaking of the Japanese Synthetik companion industry, I just located this story on Japan’s lonely hearts turn to dolls for sex, company

TOKYO, July 18 (Reuters Life!) – 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.

Each has a name. Ta-Bo often watches television with his toys before bathing them, powdering them so that their skin feels more human, dressing them in lingerie and then taking them to bed.

“A human girl can cheat on you or betray you sometimes, but these dolls never do those thing. They belong to me 100 percent,” says the engineer who has spent more than 2 million yen ($16,000) over the past decade on the dolls.

“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.”

ta-bo-san’s not a bad bloke, all told; we’ve corresponded a couple of times, and saying he’s a pretty hardcore iDollator is a fair assesment. I don’t know if I’d go to that level of extremity — my goal is perhaps just six to eight Dolls — but you have to admire his bloodymindedness.
Plus, he certainly has a point: despite Radiohead’s obvious sarcasm, meeting people isn’t easy. Or rather, meeting people you actually want to spend your time with isn’t easy. You have to be discriminate when spending time with individuals, cos more often than not, a lot of people take up your time and energy, and don’t give much in return. Unfortunately, if you’re picky about who you hang about with, you’re seen as cold or aloof. The theory that ‘man is a social animal’ doesn’t necessarily apply to everyone — it’s one thing to have mates to hang out with, but some individuals can’t be around people all the time, as it can be such a drain. Dolls, on the other hand, don’t judge, nor do they require constant attention and validation. Plus, with them in one’s life, you can be alone yet never lonely, which is an ideal situation, really

    Very nice find, Davecat!

    Right now the exchange rate is about 120 yen/dollar. It’s been around 100/1 for quite a long time, so now may be a good time to order if a 4 Woods is the doll one desires.

    She looks wonderful, but I need my dolls to store verticaly.

    I would Spring into Doll-Ordering Action instantly if I had the funds, but a new body for Sweetie comes first, naturally.

    Frankly, I’m surprised that 4woods hasn’t come up with some sort of stand / hang point for their lasses… if I recall correctly, I believe Everhard said his NEO-J lass Laura spends most of her time in bed. Personally, I would’ve chalked that up to laziness. Or horniness. 🙂

    Could one rig a parachute style hanging harness?

  4. Davecat writes:

    Well, you’d have to be really generous with the padding, so that the straps and whatnot don’t damage your lass. Now that I think about it, iDollators who have made suspension harnesses for their partners just use them for short periods of time (photos or intimacy), and not as a storage option. Plus, they tend to take up a bit of space…

    I caught the BBC show – wrote to BBC and told them how much I enjoyed the show – how well it was done
    I much appreciated the candor from everyone – Please to tell, if you know, is there much interest in advanced anthropomorphised dolls?- do you see this going Android – Pris of Blade Runner like – to me all this speaks volumes about our society, culture and psyche

  6. Davecat writes:

    Hallo Trey –
    The short answer: yes, I do see advancement of artificial humans growing as the years progress. We probably won’t have proper Replicants for a good couple of decades, but advancements are being made as we speak on Androids and Gynoids, so there’s definitely some burgeoning interest in that field.
    Are you familiar with the Actroid series of Gynoids from Japan? Or Korea’s equivalent, the EveR series? I’ve done quite a bit of obsessive research on those, as they are what can be called the first true Synthetik humans. If you’ll check the ‘Actroid-chan & other Gynoids’ category over in the lefthand sidebar, that’ll set you right…

    And Sidore and I are glad you enjoyed the documentary!

    Hello, first time to post. Can I ask if you know the biggest forum that I can find the people who actually bought love dolls? except for I already use it but want to find the other site to get more reviews and info. Doesn’t have to be about doll only, but also about adult toys and stuff.

Leave a charming reply
