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 Reuters.com: 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
