Japanese Men Are Leaving 'Heartless Real Women' For Rubber 'Love Dolls'


Japan is a strange and wonderful country, with some thoroughly bizarre customs and cultures! Though I'm sure Japanese people find our own ways just as odd (if not more so!) one particular story has had people the world over (and a decent percentage of those living in Japan!) shocked beyond measure.  

Meet Masayuki Ozaki, a man who sadly found the 'spark' had all but gone from his marriage. Fortunately, Ozaki found love again. Unfortunately, it was with an inanimate object. A life-sized silicone doll...

Mayu is a doll that lives under the same roof as Ozaki and his (I presume, long-suffering) wife. Ozaki sleeps beside Mayu, brushes her wigs, bathes her, pushes her around town in a wheelchair for 'date nights', and buys her expensive jewelry.

The Daily Mail reports that, shockingly, Mrs Ozaki wasn't completely sold on the new tenant...

'My wife was furious when I first brought Mayu home. These days she puts up with it, reluctantly,' 

I want to meet up with this poor wife for Tequila and to tell her to freakin' run

Ozaki relates just how the rubber-romance came to be; 

 'After my wife gave birth we stopped having sex and I felt a deep sense of loneliness... But the moment I saw Mayu in the showroom, it was love at first sight,'

Ozaki, a 45-year-old physiotherapist lives in Tokyo with his wife, doll, and freakin' daughter. Who, in a not surprising turn of events also find her Dad's doll a bit odd: 

'When my daughter realised it wasn't a giant Barbie doll, she freaked out and said it was gross - but now she's old enough to share Mayu's clothes.'

Ozaki is, unfortunately, not alone in his dolly daydream, according to reports the number of Japanese men conducting sexual/romantic relationships with dolls is rocketing. 

Ozaki, of course, blames Japanese women for this phenomenon, saying,  

'Japanese women are cold-hearted. They're very selfish. Men want someone to listen to them without grumbling when they get home from work,'

'Whatever problems I have, Mayu is always there waiting for me. I love her to bits and want to be with her forever. I can't imagine going back to a human being. I want to be buried with her and take her to heaven.'

Yeah, a guy who has sacrificed his marriage and family home to live with BDSM Barbie is absolutely in a position to point the finger at others and call them selfish...

Industry insiders claim the dolls cost around $6,000, come with adjustable fingers, removable heads and genitals (*SHUDDER*) and approximately 2,000 are sold every year.

Apologies for imparting that information, you'll probably find it harder to sleep tonight thanks to that knowledge...

Managing director of doll maker Orient Industry, Hideo Tsuchiya, notes, 

'Technology has come a long way since those nasty inflatable dolls in the 1970s. They look incredibly real now and it feels like you're touching human skin. More men are buying them because they feel they can actually communicate with the dolls,' 

I have no words... 

I just freakin' despair!

Sure, it does seem funny as heck, but I think there's a darker undertone to all this...

Women are losing their supposed life partners to inanimate objects because of men's sexist views that women exist for their pleasure. 

These men have no investment in their wives happiness or well being, they only view a partner as a crutch to their own life, of course a doll makes a better companion for that kind of man! It can never tell them to get a freakin' grip!

I think if these blokes had grown up in a society that helped them see women as something more than baby-carrying receptacles they maybe would have been happier and more helpful as father's and husbands. Alas, it was not to be... 

So, maybe it's better they start relationships with dolls? If that makes them happy! But I personally think their wives should be encouraged to take up a whirlwind romance with the man of their dreams whilst the husband is snuggling up next to a souped-up mannequin. 

Am I being a little harsh? Would you mind your partner taking up with a plastic doll? Or does this kind of technology need rules and regulations put in place? Let me know in the comments! And be sure to tag your friends and family so they can join in the debate! AAx
