For some people, finding a partner in life can be difficult. For others, it’s almost impossible. One documentary explores the peculiar interests of men and their dolls.
Many men and women who are introverts, socially anxious and house bound or who choose to forego the potential for rejection opt to purchase a life size adult doll to fill a void in their lives. The cost of these dolls vary and can cost anywhere between $10,000 on up for better quality or more in demand dolls.
These adult dolls are designed to recreate the appearance, texture, and weight of the human female and male form. Their primary function is to serve as sex partners and companions. This activity can be accompanied by certain preparations such as dressing them up in different types of clothing, changing wigs or makeup, and even adjusting body temperature by use of electric blankets or baths.
Early prototypes were made from solid latex with an interior skeleton, but construction of the outer material was later switched to more realistic silicone and technology as well as materials used has improved to include better quality platinum (medical grade) silicone, which makes the dolls less likely to tear and have compression marks the older life size dolls had.
