Guys and Dolls  
If you have 45 minutes to kill, give this documentary a view. It follows several different guys who are Real Doll™ owners...wow. They really went out of their way to find some social rejects. We have the goofy looking "Davecat" who is frighteningly in love with his "She-chan", who lives at home with his parents, and who goes so far as to massage her feet. We've got Everard who owns at least three, keeps his dead mother's room just the way she left it (going so far as to make sure her clock keeps the right time), and cannot understand why women don't fall all over him because he hang glides. We've got Gordon in rural Virginia, who likes drums, guns, his two dolls, and getting things his way. Lastly we have Mike, who has eight of the things and claims he would give them up for a real girlfriend, but who doesn't.

I laughed and laughed my way through this. It is NSFW, due to seeing rubber doll parts, but there's no sex and, trust me, nothing erotic. Grab a drink and have a laugh on me.

We are all one problem away from being these guys....
Everard was particularly powerful.

And I mean emotionally powerful.
That guy has some serious issues, and no one to help him.

I came away from that feeling sorry for those guys and very creeped out.

Me too, to a point. On the flip side, it may be better than being alone...right?

Oh, I think it's definitely better for them, but it's still creepy as hell.

And, seriously, if that makes you happy and gets you through life in a good head-space, then good for you. It doesn't harm my life whatsoever.

Still...I feel sorry for these people that they are so detached from society, with no apparent desire to put forth the effort to be part of it again.

And what if society doesn't want anything to do with them? Why put forth the effort if the inevitable response is rejection?

I haven't watched it all yet. I don't want to be a sofa-therapist here, but Davecat... gay all the way. Plus, judging from his jewelry, he's also into bondage.

It seems that the doll is his way of expressing his sexuality in a way that is comfortable for him.

I just want to drag him off to gay pride so he can get a sense of himself.

Honestly, I don't really care about the doll thing as long as he's happy, but you can tell he's not.

Anyway... preliminary observation.

Also, doll tongue = O_O

I am inclined to agree with everything you just said. Doll tongue scares the poo out of me.

I am not certain which of the four guys was the most off putting. I am probably going to have to go with Davecat but Mike was pretty creepy in his own right.
